NBA Insider: 3 Years After Linsanity, Jeremy Lin Still in Search of NBA Home [by Howard Beck]

Source: Howard Beck; Feb 11 2015 NEW YORK — Outside, the air is cold and biting, the sidewalks coated in ice and slush. But inside a quiet SoHo restaurant, tucked in a corner booth in the back, Jeremy Lin is a picture of comfort. He is dressed in warm-up gear, topped by a white hoodie emblazoned with the word “California,” and photos of palm trees, piers and surfboards. He is smiling, ... »

2015 NBA All-Star Week & Feb 19 Trade Deadline

2015 NBA All-Star Week & Feb 19 Trade Deadline

We have 1 week break for the NBA All-Star activities in NY. Jeremy can use the time to recuperate from the cold/gastrointestinal issues well. Historically Jeremy has performed well in the 2nd half of the season in HOU after knowing what role he needs to play to contribute to the team. But we never know if it applies with Lakers tanking situation and lineup shuffling all the time to get good excuse... »

With 8 days left before the trading deadline without Lin rumor, it would be a pleasant surprise if Lin is traded away in hopes of getting more PT for a contender rather than a tanking team. Nevertheless, Lin would keep doing his best to balance scoring and facilitating off-the-bench in his 21-25min Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLin to give his best in knowing the balance betwe... »

Lakers (13-39, 6-21 away) vs Trail Blazers(35-17, 22-5 home) This is going to be another tough game. Coming in with a last last night and being a back-to-back game. Hence the odds are against LAL. How entertaining the game is going to be, is all depends on coach Byron Scott. MEMBERS POLL [yop_poll id=”72″] »

With 9 days left before the trading deadline, it is unlikely that Lakers can find suitor to trade Lin which is still owed $6M plus $8.3M salary cap. Even without trade that has its own pros and cons, it is good to see Lin finding his ways to score and run team-ball with limited minutes as Lakers continue to tank. DEN will be tanking so it might be an ugly game. The best hope is for Lin to get good... »

Is this another ‘Must-Lose’ game as both Lakers (12-38) and Nuggets (19-32)  are contending to tank? The difference might be DEN players are ones who want to tank while Coach Brian Shaw tried to save his job. MEMBERS POLL [yop_poll id=”71″] »

Knowing Jeremy & bench can only get 20-23min if they are leading 10+ points, we can hope the Cavs will play a great game so Byron has to play the LINCREDIBLE Bench to counter the Cavs  without totally obliterating LA tank!. Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLin to give his best no matter what if there is trade or not! Go JLin!  😎 Note: Chat is enabled but if it will be disable... »

Lakers accomplished the goal of  ‘Must Lose’ game by losing intentionally against ORL by simply benching the “Too Hot Lin and the Bench” It’s great to see Lin made the most of the situation by scoring aggressively in the 1st half because he won’t get to play much if Lakers is in danger of winning the game. That’s how it is with Lakers trying to tank. Meanw... »
