The evidence — anecdotal as it is — seems rather conclusive: Jeremy Lin is not only the recipient of a disproportionate number of hard fouls, those fouls either result in highly-questionable common-foul calls, or worse, egregious no-calls.

It’s caused more than a few people to take notice. Toward the end of the video, there’s a screen-cap of a series of tweets from former director of NBA officials Ronnie Nunn, who seems just as confused as everybody else as to why Lin doesn’t get more calls.
