ESPN fired an employee responsible for an offensive headline about Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. The headline Friday on ESPN's mobile website was used for a story about a New York loss in which Lin had nine turnovers. The headline was an idiom that contains a word that also can be used as a slur against Chinese.
Jeremy Lin scored 28 points and made a career-high 14 assists as the New York Knicks beat the Dallas Mavericks 104-97 on Sunday for Linsanity to reign once more in the NBA. The Knicks ended the Mavericks' six-game winning streak and recorded their eighth victory in nine games since Lin became a starter and an international sensation.
