The Spanish national basketball team caused a stir at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing by posing for an ad in La Marca where they all made extremely racist “slanty-eyes” gestures.
Now, player by player, karma is coming back to bite them in the form of Jeremy Lin. He beat Pau Gasol’s Lakers last Friday, Ricky Rubio’s Timberwoves last Saturday, and Jose Calderon’s Raptors last night.
The only players from the ’08 Spain team left in the NBA are Rudy Fernandez (Nuggets) and Marc Gasol (Grizzlies). Luckily for them, they won’t meet Lin and the Knicks this year.
