A candid interview with Jeremy Lin

Chinese company QQ conducted an in-depth, candid interview with Jeremy on July 27, 2015. Impressively, Jeremy answered the questions in Chinese.

Charlotte Hornets roster

Charlotte Hornets roster

Last year, Hornets were 9th in defense, 28th in offense, and last in 3PT%. They made it a point to upgrade their offense and spacing this offseason, acquiring SF Batum, C Spencer Hawes, PF Kaminsky, and of course PG Lin. Here’s a brief overview of the team (disclaimer: I’m not that familiar with most of the players, just gleaned from articles). You can read more details at http://www.a... »

Jeremy Lin going to the Charlotte Hornets

Jeremy Lin going to the Charlotte Hornets

“Going into my first true free agency as an NBA player this off-season, the one thing that mattered to me the most was finding a team that would be a good fit for me. I wanted to be on a team where I would be able to play freely and truly play the game I love with joy again. That has always been the most important thing to me. After a LOT of prayer and long discussions with family and friend... »

Mavs pursuing Lin using sign-and-trade

Mavs pursuing Lin using sign-and-trade

If this happens, it would bring things full circle. The Mavs were the ones who gave Lin’s first opportunity in the NBA by inviting him to their summer league after he went undrafted.

Free Agency Day 1 Recap

Free Agency Day 1 Recap

That was quite a first day of NBA free agency. Over $1B in contracts committed. There were many seemingly overpaid players, but the NBA salary cap will be increasing by 60% over the next 2 years, so those contracts won’t outrageous next year. Most of the Day 1 signings were teams re-signing their own players. Not too many surprises, except for Kevin Love (it wasn’t known whether he wou... »

2015 NBA Playoffs: Finals

2015 NBA Playoffs: Finals

No doubt Jeremy will be watching the Finals closely, cheering on his childhood favorite NBA team. Some experts are predicting a lopsided series, but I think it will be a very exciting matchup. Many people are discounting the Cavs chances because they lost 1.5 of their Big 3. Kevin Love is out with the shoulder injury. Kyrie Irving has severe knee tendinitis and may be well below 100% for the serie... »

Lin playing in front of his hometown crowd tonight. Tonight’s game is nationally televised on ESPN, despite GSW being the 18-pt favorites. He usually plays well at Golden State (career 15.0 pts/36, 6.0 ast/36, 48.3% 3pt). How will he fare against the MVP frontrunner and his good buddy Steph Curry? Go Jeremy!
