If you say so. Maybe I'm so far removed from what goes on in basketball that I assumed it wasn't a big deal that an asian player was playing or that a relative unknown is on a 6 game hot streak out of the box. In my opinion, neither of those things is a even a sports story, nevermind a national news story, even if he is a good guy.
