Nash to start? Mark Medina interviewed Coach Scott

Nash to start? Mark Medina interviewed Coach Scott

In a recent interview (here) of Byron Scott, done by Mark Medina of LADN. One paragraph caught my eyes, Scott will spend training camp figuring out his starting lineup, which he says will currently feature Nash, Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill. He is leaning toward starting Wesley Johnson at small forward because of his defensive potential and relying on Nick Young’s prolific scoring off the bench. Scott also reported Xavier Henry has not fully recovered from left wrist and right knee injuries. Seems like Mark indirectly confirmed that Lin will be backing up Nash, if both Nash and Kobe are completely healthy at the time of the training camp. This move might actually make basketball sen... »

“Background”: The Song that Sustained Jeremy Lin to Become an #Anomaly

“Background”: The Song that Sustained Jeremy Lin to Become an #Anomaly

In a new article about Jeremy Lin endorsing the 7th album of Lecrae (his favorite rapper), Jeremy Lin shared about the significant role of the song “Background” in helping to sustain him during one of if not the lowest point of his life in 2010. As a rookie, Lin struggled so much in his 1st year with Golden State Warriors that he was sent 3 times to the D-League and only averaged 2.6pts/gm in 29 games appearance that year. The “Background” song gave hope and assurance to Jeremy who kept listening to the song which gave him hope that God still has his back, that he just needs to trust God. God is his lead. He is the servant and steward who is ready to do his will, wher... »

[HoopsHabit] Jeremy Lin: Why He’ll Win 2014-15 Most Improved Player

[HoopsHabit] Jeremy Lin: Why He’ll Win 2014-15 Most Improved Player

HoopsHabit had a very well-written article about Jeremy Lin’s chance to win the  2014-15 Most Improved Player (MIP). Source: “Jeremy Lin: Why He’ll Win 2014-15 Most Improved Player“, Michael Dunlap, HoopsHabit Look no further than last year’s winner Goran Dragic for proof of that. The bar of 20.3 points, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals with a shooting line of .505/.408/.760 is quite heady and would be a remarkably optimistic prediction for even the greatest Lin fan, but couldn’t Jeremy get to 17/6/1.5 with a line of .480/.390/.800? Those numbers would be in the discussion in just about any year.   After Goran Dragic won it last year with 20.3pts/5.9ast/1.4... »

James Harden and 10 NBA Players Who Hate Defense [RantSports]

RantSports.com published an article on 10 NBA players who hate defense. Article: James Harden and 10 NBA Players Who Hate Defense, Court Zierk, Rantsports.com While it’s subjective with minimum stats being used in the article, the names are certainly familiar as NBA players who can’t/won’t play defense. Timberwolves owner recently talked about giving free pass to KLove for not playing D. So why is the NBA not publishing stats on bad defense? I guess we all know the NBA wants all offense to sell tickets. I just don’t like how it destroys a beautiful team game with one player is allowed to not play D just because he can score well. Is there an NBA.com stats that show PP... »
