5:01 pm About playing with Nash, Jeremy said he can play together next to Nash (like he did with Harden in Houston) and it will be a lot of fun

5:00 pm About Team Expectation for this season, Jeremy said, “The mindset is Let’s get the playoff first. Then play simple. I think we’ll surprise a lot of people”

4:58 pm Jeremy: “I’m more a complete player (play off/on the ball). Not healthy 4 team to me handle ball all the time”

4:52 pm About recreating Linsanity, Jeremy said not to care too much about people say. He just needs to be himself and continue to play for God.

4:52 pm JLin on Max & Marcellus

Max can’t believe how underrated Lin as a defender. JLin said “There are many aspects of defensive assignment. Many do not understand stats” Example: strategy for CP3 could be letting him score 40pts, no assists to get a win but people only looked at individual assignments.

It’s only less than one day  left to LA Lakers Media Day on Sept 29, 2014!  😎

There will be a barrage of information, interviews, videos, etc. so we’ll do live-blogging in this thread particularly on Jeremy Lin information. As news/links come, please add to comments so we can choose the good ones to be added in this post.

TWC SportsNet will broadcast them at 4pm. It’s unclear if it’s available via Internet or just via TV.

ESPN-LA Radio with Max & Marcellus will also provide Online Audio coverage from 3-7pm.
