JLin to Start in 3 (Too Early) Lakers Line Up Guesses

Mike Trudell, Lakers beat reporter, wrote this article to lay out his thoughts on 3 possible lineups (Lin’s a starter in all 3 scenario) after conducting Q&A with Coach Byron Scott last week. Not too many details on Lin but he recognized Lin to be the next most likely to start  after Kobe based on athleticism and youth. It’s still very good to see that Lin is seen as the most capable starter after Kobe. When training camp starts, we’ll get to hear more about who will excel to be starters. It’s only 1 month before Training Camp starts on Sept 28! SOURCE: (Too Early) Lakers Line Up Guesses, Mike Trudell, nba.com    »

Brainstorming JLinPortal User Rank

Before we formalize the User Rank here, it’s a good idea to open it up to the members to hear your input. User Ranks are useful to reward participation in the site and acknowledge senior members. Here is the current User Rank: http://www.jlinportal.com/rank Rookie: 0-99 pts Junior: 100-499 pts Senior: 500-1499 pts Veteran: 1500-3999 pts Master: 4000-9999 pts Linsanity: 10000-99,999 pts But @wilsc also has a good point to change it from generic Ranks to something like: vipers d-league triple double, Vikings (championship), nets break out game, Toronto game, Kobe duel game, triple double off bench, three pointer game against sixer It’s a good idea to personalize the Ranks with Jere... »

2 Important Things Byron Scott said about JLin in 8/20 NBA Q&A

  Byron talked mostly about Kobe in his 8/20 NBA Q&A interview but there were 2 key points about how he thinks of using JLin in his system. 1. JLin the “Triple-Threat Player” When Byron was asked about JLin and Steve Nash’s health, he started by saying he was hopeful that Nash will be healthy enough to “provide some of the things” to run the team. Clearly he doesn’t think Nash will be healthy enough to be the main contributor to run his team at this point. Then he reiterated what he likes from JLin (big-shot player, tough, intelligent) and is a triple-threat player (shoot, finish at the rim or assist other players). He also said Kobe, Nick and a h... »

Jeremy Lin Gets Madame Tussauds wax figure, patched things up with his mom

  It’s good to know that Jeremy’s mom wasn’t actually upset with the pie-in-the-face prank for her birthday since it’s a family tradition. (It’s unclear if Mama Lin approved this message. We saw her slapping reaction is real, Jeremy 😉 ) ). Celebrating her son’s wax figure being unveiled in the SF Madame Tussauds Musem is certainly an icing on the cake 🙂 Nice damage control, Jeremy! Here is an article with more of the story: Jeremy Lin gets Madame Tussauds wax figure, which is nice, and shoves cake in mom’s face, which isn’t, Dan Devine, Yahoo Sports Canada And here is an article showing the process by Eric Pincus from LA Times: San Francis... »

Jeremy Lin Statue & Tribute at @ Conscious Art Exhibit

[inlinetweet prefix=”Taiwan honored Jeremy Lin with a Bruce-Lee inspired statue and paintings” tweeter=”@JLinPortal” suffix=”null”]Taiwan truly honored Jeremy Lin with a Bruce-Lee inspired statue and various paintings[/inlinetweet] at the Conscious 3 Basketball Art Exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan this past weekend. Sure, it’s only 1-foot statue and there might be a more interesting Kobe statue fighting with a giant Black Mamba which actually bit his Achilles heel but it is a great accomplishment indeed for an undrafted NBA player. There are so many interesting questions about the art such as: 1. Why does one painting with the Houston... »
