Jeremy Lin 3, Spain 0 [PHOTO]

You might not remember this racist photo from the 2008 Olympics in Beijing from the Spanish national team. But it was pretty bad. Click here to view it or you'll see an edited version of the photo after the jump.

Jeremy Lin, take your revenge on these Spaniards.

Lin has won his last three games with a Spaniard from that team featuring prominently on the roster.

  • Drops 38 on Pau Gasol and the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night at Madison Square Garden.
  • Hits the game-winning free throw on Ricky Rubio and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
  • Nails a game-winner against the Toronto Raptors, right over the outstretched hand of Jose Calderon. Calderon had been outplaying him most of the night, but Lin had the last laugh.

Cross them off the list!

All that's left to complete the NBA circles are two more players: Rudy Fernandez of the Denver Nuggets and Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies. Unfortunately New York has already played both of those teams sans Lin, so they'll miss out on those revenge games until 2012. Lin will have to sub that with two more matchups with Calderon.
