Bretos, IMO, just got caught in a bad coincidence. "Chink in the armor" is a common enough phrase & it's only unacceptable when in this context because of Lin's ethnicity. Bretos was wondering where there may be a weakness in Lin's game, a gap in his skill set, so it's natural choice of analogy.

The headline, on the other hand, I absolutely have a problem with. That was something where a guy sat down, thought it out & said "Yeah, this is totally a good idea". He's either really dumb or else thinks the rest of us are.
