    Cultural appropriations, NBA style

    Kenyon Martin calls out Jeremy Lin for wearing dreadlocks. Makes it about race.

    Martin also sports a tattoo that is Chinese characters that translates to indecisive or not aggressive, according to Yao Ming. Martin claims the tattoo means never satisfied. Martin claims that Ming's Chinese is rusty. Some things you can't make up any better.

    "Do I need to remind this damn boy that his last name Lin?" Martin said in the video. "Like, come on man. Let's stop this, man, with these people, man. There is no way possible that he would have made it on one of our teams with that bulls--- goin' on on his head. Come on man, somebody need to tell him, like, 'All right bro, we get it. You wanna be black.' Like, we get it. But the last name is Lin."

    Lin addressed the idea of cultural appropriation -- the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture -- in his Players' Tribune essay and wrote that he hopes that the conversation about cultural differences can continue.

    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    Just another example of we can do whatever we want but we tell everyone else what they can and cannot do.
