Huang time coming

Is Orlando expatriate Eddie Huang the next Anthony Bourdain?

"For the last 11 years of my life, my dad and I had read the Sentinel every morning. … It was the most important interview I'd ever have." (p.207)
In 2004, the Orlando Sentinel ran as an article a letter to the editor that Huang had submitted, and offered him an interview as a beat writer. Although what ensued might be open to interpretation – the editor took one look at Huang, said, "Oh wow, that face" and decided they wouldn't be able to "make this work" – Huang took it as yet another example of the racism that would force him to do his own thing, because "that face" would never be allowed on ESPN or in the newspaper.

"The Orlando Magic sucked. I thought their name was wack and there were mad cornballs on the team like Scott Skiles and Jeff Turner." (p.35)
Huang's only advice for the current Magic organization: "Keep trading white people like J.J. Redick, haha." I think maybe, just maybe, Huang might not have the Magic's best interests at heart.
