G20 LAL @ BOS Game Thread+Chat

Let’s hope JLin will be focused and ready to redeem himself with a great game!

I’m hoping for multiple drives to the rim,  at least 4-6FTs and controlled aggression to set up his teammates!

Let’s go, JLin!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL 1st again in game thread!

  • Let’s go, Linsanity!!! :>

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Just give me 17/7 I will be a happy camper with this Kobe ball:-) Kobe and BS make sure Linsanity won’t happen in their watch.

  • Riddick

    Lets goooooo Lin…get your stats any way you can!!

  • 17/7 is Linsanity if Kobe is on the floor 😀

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin, just play with what your heart tells you. Lintense!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    In that sense then yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Miracle for JLin to receive that numbers. Will be very happy if JLin is able shoot at least 10 FGAs in Kobe ball.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good you are back @Kwok Wai Lai:disqus

  • LOL .. welcome back, Lintense Kwok 😀
    I got a good feeling about this game!

  • Riddick

    Wow, it’s quiet. Where is everyone…the westCoast still commuting?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I need some heartwarming support that’s been missing in the old Jeremy Lin #7. They should change to Jeremy Lin #17.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I appreciate the effort more than the outcome from the Kobe team. When would Kobe start realize that it takes a team to play well? The team chemistry has improved but I wonder if Kobe will sabotage the flow of game by ball hogging.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL after the last 2 games, maybe people can’t stomach to watch Kobe ball anymore:-) I will watch the first qtr until JLin subs out. If too much of Kobe ball, won’t watch rest of game unless JLin is doing well:-) LOL can’t stomach to witness JLin suffers under Kobe ball.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s a good suggestion. I can’t put up with Lin being left out in the offense and Kobe just chucking up the shots. I want to see a fired up team not just Kobe.

  • Let’s hope there’s more balance on Kobe and JLin playmaking.
    If Lin/Boozer/Hill/Wes are hitting, there’s hope for Kobe passing.

    Otherwise, it’s Kobe crime-fighting time!

  • Riddick

    lol…me too. I’ve started to watch until Price checks in, & when bryant starts bringing up the ball. I’ve barely lasted to 2nd qtr the last few games. My last full game was when Lin had big numbers & was criticized for it by noCoach.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. That was what I’ve done in the past few games. Found some “sanity” in rooting for JLin. Otherwise, I will begin to “scream”…..:-)

  • Briiick

    LOL. Even the diehard laker fans could get tired of kobe breaking stat records and losing 3 out of 4 games.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Stop believing anything came from their mouth. During startergate, I still gave a little bit of benefit of doubt to BS. But not after JLin double-double. With Kobe, I lost my respect of him when JLin was elected as player of game when he had same pts. Could see the obvious marginalized began. I would hold my views and perspectives on these two. I would like to be wrong but they only proved me right all the times. Sad but …. Have to find a way to support JLin in a positive note.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Always count on it on 4th qtr, the rest depends on how fast his “madness” begins. That’s why he lost so many winnable games by him alone. Don’t blame anyone but Kobe and BS. JLin isn’t perfect but at least he tries his best in this Kobe ball. No one is able to flourish under Kobe and BS. If JLin does well, BS makes sure to sub JLin out and sit him long long long long until he is cool before letting him return to games so that he can blame JLin for the LOSS. He won’t blame JLin when he is cold like last game. Find that’s most ironic with both Kobe and BS.

  • Riddick

    Exactly…I’ve wanted to give the nba the finger & say sayounara for awhile now, but I’m determined to support Lin. No matter how painful it is to watch the unfairness go on & on & on.
    Hope for a better team next season is what we have to hold on to for now.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    All new teams without a core unit tend to have trouble to begin the season: Miami Heats, Cavaliers, Timberwolves Knicks, Hornets, 76ers except the Milwaukee Bucks. If I were Byron Scott, I would not look at the team on win/loss basis and I would just concentrate on team building.

    Currently teams with similar or worse records than Lakers are OKC, Utah, Minnesota, 76er, Detroit Pistons, Knicks, Hornets. With the kind of injuries to start the seaon with, Lin’s team could be proud of what they have achieved so far. This is a long season and you need all 16 players to do well. The Spurs is the best team to manage minutes for their players.

    Byron Scott is the most stubborn no show in his offense. I wish he could just shut up and do his job.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s right. I’m still hopeful that anything can happen between now and July. Am patiently how the events unfold. For JLin, when things become unbearable for him and us fans, something impossible happens. So, not hoping for next season but still focusing on this season game by game.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CJSHYY

    Why there is no Kobe?

  • Arsenium12 .
  • John Lee

    Oh oh, jealous Kobe sighting very soon after!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL My eyes focus on JLin only; no one else:-)

  • John Lee

    In the diva room throwing a tantrum because Jeremy is getting more attention than him.

  • Alaingrvis

    hopefully he shows the world how good random really is lol

  • Guest

    LoL

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Arsenium12 .
  • MomentousPetey

    Why do announcers, commentators, and press writers seem to praise Kobe every chance they get? Anyone who knows anything about basketball already know hes a world class player. No need to shove it in our faces so many times!

  • Guest

    You mean the opposite. Lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    There is an interesting article about Jason Kidd who once played as PG for Byron Scott. Kidd has found his team and the team has found its coach. A young and exciting team to watch. Yes, this is the team who grab Kendal Marshal away on waiver.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/24849063/undefined

    Jason Kidd may have been right all along

  • golfhacker

    He even does ISO during pregame huddle.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I still don’t get why people think Rondo is any good. Hello he HAD KG, “had” being the operative word here.

  • Guest

    Like John lee puts it, divas are suppose to get all the attention! =)

  • Guest

    Nice!

  • roberlin

    Slow start so far.

  • roberlin

    Boozer with two fouls. Should be coming out of the game.

  • sport

    Kobe ball hogging….Lin not getting any passes from him even when wide open!

  • roberlin

    assist for Lin on that Hill jumper

  • sport

    Ball not moving at all, just Kobe bricking shots after shots!

  • sport

    If Lin wants to score he needs to shoot after half court and not pass!

  • roberlin

    Lakers can’t buy a basket.

  • real-dsb

    or just steal the ball and go coast to coast! =)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott should call a Timeout and he just watched Kobe. This is a dumb coach.

  • Alaingrvis

    celtics are so fast this slow offense don’t stand a chance

  • Alaingrvis

    the slowness of this offense is killing lin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The lack of ball movements because every time Kobe missed a shot, the Celtics scored.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well another loss with a winnable game if this pace continues.

  • BobbyH

    BS’s order. He is 5th option.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy is the only reason I’m not switching to Spurs vs Grizzlies.

    Well probably once he’s resting, I’ll switch.

  • John Lee

    Kobe taking over PG duty again, not working so far.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is the one who stopped the flow of the Lakers with his patented fade aways. I just wish him fade away for good.

  • sport

    Everytime Kobe gets the ball, he just chucks up a shot ><" Guy doesn't know how to pass?

  • sport

    OMG it’s like a blowout already 9 – 21 !

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Very frustrating to watch Kobe ball. No doubt about it.

  • John Lee

    His passes aren’t much better than his shots.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe is killing the Lakers.

  • real-dsb

    Mitch: good job Kobe, keep chucking!

  • Alaingrvis

    this offense is so slow

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok switching to Spurs vs Grizz in a few minutes

  • Riddick

    That won’t work because noCoach will complain that he’s out of control…code for: wait for crimeFighter to catch up.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe doesn’t have excuse of taking so many shots now because he almost miss everything while Jordan Hill has a good day inside.

  • real-dsb

    wow, Celtics are currently 12-17 (71% fg)

  • sport

    Lakers going to lose. Kobe playing PG with TOs and chuck shots every time he gets the pass, completely ignoring Lin who’s wide open for 3s!

  • sport

    Kobe doesn’t know how to pass back out at all! Lin was wide open yet he threw the ball away twice!!

  • MomentousPetey

    Lakers bigs sans Davis are mediocre defenders, THATS THE PROBLEM!

  • BobbyH

    Lin continues to struggle. He is not in this so called Laker’s flow. Where is the flow anyway.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just wonder why BS is so boneheaded of keeping on subbing out JLin and not Kobe for a change. Kobe’s clown and puppet for good. No point watching this sick KOBE ball!!!!!!!!

  • Riddick

    It doesn’t matter how many goes in…it’s how bryant fights crime.

  • sport

    With Kobe bricking so many shots already you’d think he have more than 4 points!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They play at the slowest pace in the NBA.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordan Hill scored 7

  • BobbyH

    I am more and more convinced that Lakers FO wants to tire down Kobe.

  • CJSHYY

    So Rondo is showing he can shoot now?! Take so many shots today.

  • Alaingrvis

    i honestly miss the fast pace the rox had. this team takes forever to get to their sets. the defense gets a long time to set. against these fast teams you see the flaws of the system quick

  • Riddick

    That’s the only play he can manage.

  • sport

    Lakers lazy, old starters almost never runs fast breaks which Lin excels at! No wonder Lin got almost 40 points against them during Linsanity!

  • cali7

    Sounds like this is going to be another kobe show for these away games so the crowd can witness his amazing abilities (sarcasm)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    the Lakers have been giving up layups. Whose fault is this? Lin is out.

  • John Lee

    I think he was on the money on that pass, he meant to pass it to the audience.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s true. Can’t wait to see both KOBE and BS out of NBA for good! GOOD for NBA!!!!!!!!!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t. I like the Knicks with Jeremy more.

  • Alaingrvis

    that as well but the slow methodical style of the lakers is frustrating

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to play ef it bb. He just needs to look for the basket then open man.

  • sport

    No one’s forcing Kobe to chuck shots, guys a huge ball hog and can’t pass!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s exactly my thought. People come to the game to watch HIM. That’s exactly the quote in one of his games. So sick of this kind of egoistic player.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BB so much fun when Kobe sit.

  • John Lee

    I’m bored to tears by Kobeball, going stat-watching mode now. Boxscore number changes are much more interesting.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Disgusting BS never played Lin when Kobe on bench.

  • sport

    BS has played every starter with 2nd unit except Lin! Bias!

  • Alaingrvis

    you can tell lin wants to play faster but is being told to slow down

  • sport

    That’s what I kept saying, Lin did when he just looks to score after bring the ball up and never passing! I don’t know why he doesn’t ignore Kobe and just looks for his own shot!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS’s offensive system is killing you Jeremy. The sooner you know the better.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Lakers slower than the much, much older Spurs…

  • John Lee

    He doesn’t want to start mutiny.

  • sws94

    Not having fun watching this team. Lin was playing so much better until the Toronto game. This game he had one nice penetration out to Hill but mostly he’s having to play defense on another tough PG without much help.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS’s system is killing Lin’s career.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is trend I have detected. He has taken no chance of Lin playing w/o Kobe. This is the kind of coach who should be fired. Byron personally wants Kobe to play after the expiration of his contract. This is an extension of Lakers misery.

  • Riddick

    lol…I was thinking the same. I’ve had a snooze by the time this team gets across court.

  • Alaingrvis

    i have almost given up on the lakers as well as scott. lin all year hasn’t been at his beast yet. he has done good to pretty good this year but the dynamic playmaker lin has always been seems to be missing. its the slow style he is in

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is the coach, the player and everything. That is just a disastrous team to watch.

  • John Lee

    I think Kobeball is the main cause of @Michael ‘s occasional coma.

  • sport

    Of course he does, that way he can continue to be Lakers HC! Without Kobe, BS is out the door! He’s the sole reason why he was hired in the first place!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Those mean screens by Davis…. Jeremy could certainly use those.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The 2nd unit has developed some kind of team work w/o the Kobe factor.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    See how Lakers play when Kobe on bench? Imagine Lin is leading them. SMH.

  • Lam

    Or metalogic.net

  • Alaingrvis

    even ellington driving

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers could win more games with Kobe gone for good in this season.

  • cali7

    So slow. Which is why I wouldn’t mind Lin with the bench. They can run which I would love to see

  • sws94

    Say that and people go we are making excuses for Lin. But sometimes there are reasons for things. He gets no picks and there’s no attacking early offense like there is with Rondo. Rondo isn’t doing anything amazing, he’s just taking advantage of his picks and his players moving which doesn’t happen in Byron’s system.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    All Lin does is to look for the first post up man either Kobe or Boozer.

  • sport

    This slow style doesn’t fit JLin at all! Teammates don’t give him screens, and barely want to move not to mention never pass back to him!

  • sws94

    He would only get 20 minutes then, that’s the problem.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe would want to come in now.

  • Riddick

    lol…wouldn’t be surprised. Lin probably has played 2 full games by himself, by the time bryant shuffles to the other side.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    regret pleading to BS to start JLin? Situations like these it would be better for JLin to play with 2nd unit even though he is justify to be a starter.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS indeed wanted to start Ronnie Price and let Jeremy run the 2nd team.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Exactly, when speed is your advantage and it’s taken away.

  • sport

    2nd unit bringing the game close again. I’m not even watching the boring game just look at the score and stats until Lin comes in!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I saw it from the first season game. That’s why I brought this issue up repeatedly. Definitely KOBE and BS scare of JLin’s shining. They arent’ JLin’s friends but enemies. That’s why I called out Kobe and BS long time ago. They are no better than M & M in R. That’s why I won’t give credit to anyone when JLin does well. He is fighting the crime ALONE!

  • roberlin

    You’re going to have to wait a while, lol.

    Lame substitution patterns.

  • cali7

    How was lin’s d on rondo? Rondo has 6 pts 5 dimes. Looks solid play from rondo…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sometimes you need to pick a better poison.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Kobe can stay on the bench, I don’t mind watching just the 2nd team. The movement of ball is so much better w/o Kobe.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    LOL Price so far had more shot attempts than Lin.

  • sport

    Without Kobe of course!

  • sws94

    There’s a pass that Lin makes in his sleep.

  • cali7

    At this rate I almost don’t care. And it’s possible he could close out games. Nick young does. I just hate to see lin’s talents wasted like this so kobe can star in his show

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Lakers didn’t improve until Kobe the Bryant was out.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They play freely without looking over Kobe. SMH.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    don’t wish to see the starters in again and squander the game with JLin being the scapegoat…again.

  • sws94

    OK, Rondo gets a lot of screens. At one point he scored easily on a layup and that looked like bad defense by Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    This system is not ever going to make it easy for jeremy….wish Nash would’ve stuck it out to allow jeremy to thrive off of the bench…how ironic is that

  • Singapore BB Fan

    never try ….you never know what is best…

  • cali7

    Exactly. Teamball. Lin’s play personifies Teamball but even without lin, the problem is kobe

  • MoominFloren

    doubt it. Kobe will not allow Lin to play without him. it is clear that he wants Lin’s performance fully under his control. if he’s happy, he may let Lin play a bit!!

  • sport

    Starters should’ve been back in when bench got the score close now it’s back to 10!

  • cali7

    Thanks.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin still not in even Price is out. You tell me wtf?

  • roberlin

    Lin still not in. 🙁

  • John Lee

    I’m so glad I didn’t sink in $250 to buy League Pass! LOL

  • sws94

    And of course Kobe comes back in before Lin. Here’s another long rest for Lin, way too long. How is he supposed to ever establish a rhythm?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL JLin will see more bench from last game on.

  • sport

    BS is bias, and the Lakers offense are atrocious.

  • Riddick

    Yup, it’s barely watchable from free streaming. smh

  • roberlin

    he’s not. The coach is trying to ice him. Lol.

  • sport

    That’s an understatement it’s Not EVEN Watchable without Lin! Totally remember why I was never impressed with Kobe, Lebron or NBA after MJ retired! This is exactly why!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Where is offense with KOBE???? Only Kobe ball!!!!!!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS knows what would happen if Lin play without Kobe.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Playing the devil’s advocate: come on guys make up your mind. You want Jeremy as a starter but you want him to play on the second unit more.

    LOL kidding. I’m just enjoying the Grizz vs Spurs game, with each team showing both of Jeremy’s strengths: speed and fundamentals

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He is icing JLin from DAY 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Riddick

    That’s the point. noCoach-bryant doesn’t want Lin in rhythm to outshine chucker.

  • John Lee

    NBA will have to pay ME to watch this BS.

  • roberlin

    I don’t want Lin to play with the second unit. So i’ve made up my mind, lol.

  • cali7

    They might win more games? Nope can’t let that happen.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They both are poison, just have to pick a better one.

  • roberlin

    Lin benched for the rest of the half.

  • MoominFloren

    Anyone join me to pray for a Lin trade?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    so, do you want Kobe to play with the 2nd unit?

  • Riddick

    Maybe the noCoach testing the waters to trade Lin? Hoping…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Of course. That’s why he is marginalized JLin even worse than M & M. This situation in Lakers is worse than his time in R.

  • roberlin

    Great, Lin coming in with 3 minutes left. Lame.

  • sport

    Mitch please trade JLin! I can’t stand to watch another game of Kobe Ball and your sorry, lazy so called Bigs who only take jumpers!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Your wish is granted!

  • Bearness

    So, BS does know how to change rotations after all… when it comes to Lin at least.

  • John Lee

    Lin takes a paycut and joins Spurs in offseason.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I prefer “chronos” take him and BS out for good!!!!!!!!

  • Riddick

    That’s not a rotation change…he forgot Lin is still on the team. smh

  • sport

    Not must to miss with Kobeball.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    So far there some would like to pick either or both poison

  • Singapore BB Fan

    whichever combination BS is trying….Celtics is still leading…

  • MoominFloren

    Cant wait until off season! This kills Lin and we fans !

  • Bearness

    I’d love Lin on Spurs, except I don’t think backing up Tony Parker is going to be good for him. Also, he is a bit young to already take a pay cut.

  • sport

    I lost count how many TOs has Wannabe PG Kobe had this game?!

  • roberlin

    There’s no one in there who can guard Rondo. Nice move benching Lin, BS.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What happened to the “no wishing injuries to other players” policy?

  • Promo Sports World

    Uphill battle for his career all over again…but perseverance is what makes him what he is. But BS is a horrible coach and Kobe is the most selfish 2 in league history. Couldn’t ask for a worse hand

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is the poison for all team basketball .

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe needs to accept he’s old and slow.

  • John Lee

    Everyone on Spurs team is underpaid, Lin wouldn’t be the sole exception.

  • Promo Sports World

    Not a good person or teammate

  • roberlin

    I don’t get it – why did BS go without a point guard for the last several minutes of the quarter??

  • golfhacker

    Jeremy would be a good fit in Boston. TEAMBALL

  • sws94

    The Lakers look pitiful, embarrassingly bad.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott has to accept this system suck

  • Riddick

    It’s not an injury wish, but a gentle reminder from father time to bryant to stop playing like it’s 1995. lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Overthrow Ginobili then overthrow Parker… lol

  • sport

    Mitch has to fire him, except Lakers FO obviously wants to tank!

  • John Lee

    There you go, Rondo for Lin and everyone’s happy.

  • cali7

    He did that before and they lost. He is so freakin clueless or pathetic excuse for a coach.

  • Promo Sports World

    Here is what we need to know about Kobe. When he got arrested in Colorado. One of the first things he mentioned was Shaq. For no reason. Says all you need to know how he values teammates.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BOS 48 LAL 39….and JLin enters the game…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin dooooooo that more.

  • sport

    What’s the point of having a PG with Kobe taking over as PG and chucking shots and TOs!

  • roberlin

    Boston went on a little run there without Lin in there. Dumb move.

  • sport

    He won’t until he actually breaks down! I won’t be surprised if he does playing these minutes.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s an underhanded request for an injury lol, like a backhanded compliment or slap lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    At the verge of being blown out, BS sent in Jeremy.
    Why don’t you just sit Jeremy for the whole quarter. There are only 2+ minutes left.

  • MoominFloren

    @&?#x 2:46 left and brings Lin in??!?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    YESSSSSSSS

  • roberlin

    nice drive Lin!

  • sport

    I missed when did Lin get 2 points? But wow 3 point play!

  • Come on Linsanity!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Ef BS’s sytem

  • John Lee

    Since when is Kobeball a “system”?

  • sport

    Lin should just fk it! Shoot don’t pass to Kobe!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Just checked in time for 2 ft. Will take that than 0.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    See what Mr. JLin can do in 2:45 minutes on the clock

  • Promo Sports World

    5 quick points

  • sport

    Just keeping shooting Lin, get your stats! Screw this team!!

  • MoominFloren

    ok. nice drive

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Jeremy sets meaner screens than Boozer + Hill

  • sport

    Awww almost And 1 at Buzzer!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That’ll COUNT!!!!!!! oh too bad!

  • sport

    7 Points!!

  • roberlin

    LIN!! WOW. He got it off with .1 second left, lol.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The Jeremy Lin Show

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is so efficient and the whole team starts moving. Jordan Hill is the best player on the floor.

  • Lin against 4 Celtics.. No problem!
    Layup, baby!

  • sport

    LOL Lin with 7 points in 2:46 minutes!! He’s obviously mad and is playing well!!!

  • Bearness

    Niiiiceee!

  • roberlin

    Lin just needs to keep running the one man fast break, lol.

  • Back in BeanTown, baby!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    That’s our boy….

  • cali7

    That’s efficient! Lol

  • sport

    Lin needs to play mad and just score every game!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I JUST SCREAM LINSANITY OUT LOUD IN MY LIVING ROOM!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s awakening.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW! JLin goes goes goes. One man shows!!!!!!!!!!! NO more KOBE. IGNORE him!!!!!!!!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin literally efffffff it in BS face

  • roberlin

    Lin was mad he got in with only 3 minutes left to play in the second. Was going to get his as much as he could in that time, lol.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Wow, just like that, 7 pts.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You know the problem that the Lakers has. They tried to hide the fact that Kobe is not explosive anymore. Lin is explosive and with him running the show. Kobe would be run out of the court soon w/o his 26 points average.

  • sport

    He needs to just keep shooting after half court, off dribble 3s, mid range jumpers, one man fast breaks all by himself just don’t pass the ball!!

  • sws94

    I hope Byron gets that Lin should take it to the hole and be involved in the offense. He’s the only one that drove the ball to the hoop.

  • Lin is going Kobe himself! LOL

  • Riddick

    Has the guys w/the white jackets arrived at your front door? lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is fast he can do that all the time no matter if the paint is packed. why i was mad in washington. he can do that at all times. now if there a blocker be smart but if not put a helmet on and drive

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS KILL KOBE BALL singleheadedly!!!!!

  • roberlin

    It’s hard to drive to the basket while sitting on the bench because the coach won’t bring you in.

  • sport

    With Lin running the floor it’d be obvious that Kobe can’t keep up and would always been trailing!! So Lin just needs to run fast breaks him and score after half court cause his teammates won’t pass back to him, only to Kobe! Forget the assists when teammates don’t try to look for him either way!

  • Promo Sports World

    Yup he was rebelling I think in Wash

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Off to enjoy some Spurs vs Grizz bloodbath, but Jeremy Lin wouldn’t let me.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol.

  • MoominFloren

    good idea haha

  • roberlin

    there’s no Gortat in there. Big difference.

  • BobbyH

    That’s the horse we know. Triple Crown Horse.

  • Alaingrvis

    gortat isn’t a great blocker i think scott told him to change his style

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    HAHAHAHAHA I was so glad to watch the 2 mintues of 2nd qtr!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • blubell

    Secretariat!

  • cali7

    Learning from the master himself

  • Riddick

    TAKE THAT U bs!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Sure you want to bench me…f you pay me I’m shooting scoring running and making it happen….I hate 80s players who are now coaches — jlin

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ride it, baby!

  • 7iger

    Just check in and see the starters and benches have about equal minutes. Is that the BS way of rotation change by sit starters more?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin plays best when he picks up the tempo of the game but the Lakers tries to slow down the offense for Kobe’s fadeaway.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Guy has a jealous streak. “I want your attention more so I’ll do something..”

  • John Lee

    Take THAT, You FIRE HYDRANT!

  • sport

    Kobrick with 10 FGAs that’s about the number of shots Lin would take in an entire game!!

  • 7iger

    LAL total asts = 8. Rondo asts = 8.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If Lin can play with Kobe on the bench, this will really open up the game.

  • Alaingrvis

    only great blockers affect lins drives.there are maybe 3-5 of those in the nba. when he plays against them yes shoot threes. but other then that we need 5-10 full throttle drives a game from lin. i bet its scott who have told him to drive less. heres an example of why he should drive more a lot more

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    MINI Dragon JLin in 2:46m 2nd qtr.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Case, we’re slow and easy don’t cut it. Fast and furious!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    1. Ibaka
    2. DeAndre Jordan
    3. ?

  • sport

    Except Scott won’t let him for whatever bias hidden agenda he has!!

  • Alaingrvis

    dwight

  • Alaingrvis

    thats about it

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Honestly I don’t think he’s a good shotblocker.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not happen unless KOBE and BS are out of NBA for good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sport

    I don’t mind Lakers slowing down from Time to Time but an entire 1st half basketball of slow pace NBA basketball just for Kobe is ridiculous!!

  • Alaingrvis

    yes he is

  • MomentousPetey

    How about Lin’s defense!! Disrupting Rondo’s playmaking!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • JC

    Kobe already taking 5 less shots tonight , he would’ve racked up 15 by half time normally

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He WAS. I don’t think he is now.

  • jolno

    Anthony Davis, current league leader in blocks.

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree but he still alters a lot of shot may not block you but you will be affected

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    concentration and intensity comes back.

  • sws94

    It was interesting that Lin took the ball, didn’t look for Kobe, and just said I’ll get this myself. I think Kobe might like that.

  • Alaingrvis

    yes

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s why I said “chronos” in Kobe’s term = mother nature in his interpretation. Just his ailing bb body won’t take it anymore for playing so many minutes and doing so much. Not wishing that on him but this is what he is doing thus far.

  • sws94

    I know, what’s up with the long sit. I think Lin may change Byron’s mind in the second half. But you never know with Scott.

  • sport

    Just hope for Kobe to break down and forced to retire! Then BS will be out the door! Kobe is the only one keeping BS in a job, you can tell Mich and FO aren’t sold on his BS!

  • Alaingrvis

    he is probably the best

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh yeah! how can I forget him!

    1. Ibaka
    2. DeAndre
    3. Davis

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Forget about Kobe; just go Linning.

  • sport

    Not block shots but his body is enough to affect and scare anyone getting to the rim!

  • CJSHYY

    I guess Lin was mad bc no one passed the ball to him also Scott let him played so less min in 1st half. smh! Really mad… They did it on purpose to make Lin look bad today.

  • roberlin

    Game is actually winnable, if Scott freakin’ lets Lin play.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Really want to see Byron crying when his job security (Kobe) is gone.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has to do him. he will get criticized not kobe or boozer

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    NOP! He/Kobe will bench JLin even more. Otherwise it will take longer time for Kobe to break more records. Wait and see both Kobe and BS will say boneheaded again in their post interviews.

  • roberlin

    It wasn’t to make Lin look bad – it’s coz Scott thinks Lin IS a bad player. Scott doesn’t seem to respect Lin’s game that much, no matter what Scott may say.

  • sport

    You know this game is actually watchable because Celtics are a better Eastern team with team plays! I have more fun watching Celtics score than Lakers entire team minus Lin!! They are just so awful!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin fights back. He singlehandedly trim the lead by half.

  • CJSHYY

    I know… now I really hate Kobe… Rondo tried very hard today to score… what a meeting… smh!

  • Alaingrvis

    they lose a lot though but this coach has them playing as a team

  • Yascar

    Do you know IJ sometimes I come on here just to read what the future Mrs Lin has to say! You’re a riot girl! 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If BS would rest Kobe a bit more.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t think so. He and BS will say boneheaded again in their postgame interviews.

  • CJSHYY

    They want to show the boss Lin vs Rondo it’s huge different… Rondo took so many shots today?! Show case… smh!

  • MoominFloren

    i bet BS didnt expect Lin can make 7 pts in a rush. let’s see how it goes in the 2nd half

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m nastier than Jeremy, I know… lol

  • sport

    Every game is winnable if Kobe sits for the entire game! I’m not even kidding! A good coach would force Kobe to take only 15 shots max and bench him if he’s chucking shots!

  • 7iger

    Almost end of 3rd qtr and Hornets lead Knicks by 80 to 60. That is how bad Knicks are now.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The last shot of the half was a real beauty. It tells you how explosive Lin could be. But BS didn’t give him a chance to play at his best.

  • CJSHYY

    I know no one set the screen for him so Lin just drive by himself… I really hate Kobe & Scott now.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL love it!!!!!!!!!! Let’s see what narrative will come out in postgame interviews.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You know, this Lakers could be a much better team with Kobe out for 1 or 2 months.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    D.Fisher is not a proven coach

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Is there any way to take Kobe out of a game?

  • Bearness

    I think that is true unfortunately. I hope he will play for a coach who believes in him next year.

  • MoominFloren

    and make the playoff i believe

  • JoeTeam

    just saw JLin’s 3 min stint and loved it!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    They’re forcing the Knicks to play the triangle but it doesn’t fit them AT ALL.

  • Bearness

    Linsanity!!!

  • sport

    LOL Lin back to back ONE Man Fast Breaks! He finally gets it!! Screw your slow teammates just run for yourself!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is so fast!

  • roberlin

    I told you Lin should just keep doing that one man fast break, lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    told you

  • Bearness

    Lin is having a lay up drill out there. ROFL!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Actually I don’t really care. I’m just messing with you. Wish away! 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    yep lakers are slow but he isn’t

  • orLinaryjoe

    LINNNNN! Fast!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe can’t keep up with him.

  • roberlin

    I’m the one who called it first – the one man fast break all the way! Lol.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Go JLin! Use your speed!!!!!!!!

  • sport

    Lin got fouled on the first fast break but no foul call, bias refs!!

  • roberlin

    And I’m sure Scott will bench Lin for running too fast and scoring, lol.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Celtics call a timeout right away. Not like BS!

  • sport

    Yes and I’m running with that AWESOME Phase!!

  • Bearness

    Yep, so he got mad and was like, “Oh yeah? I’ll just do it again!”

  • Rick Johnson
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Yeah! BS would give Lin a traffic ticket for speeding.

  • John Lee

    BS: We lost in 3Q after fast pace scoring by Jeremy.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • golfhacker

    “We’re trying to win here, Jeremy.”

  • Singapore BB Fan

    what a body!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin has the cut.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Somebody brought down my Grizzlies vs Spurs stream, without taking down the Celtics vs Lakers. Somebody with number 17 in gold is jealous. lol

  • John Lee

    Posterized!!!

  • sport

    Linsanity!!!

  • Carol Tiu

    WOW!

  • JoeTeam

    whoa … nice from TW! Sparticus!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    3!

  • Bearness

    Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  • MoominFloren

    wakaka

  • roberlin

    How could Kobe miss that shot!

    But Lin with that deep three. Wow.

  • Alaingrvis

    that was a bit deep lol thats what she said

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I want Lin to outscore Kobe.

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe killed the flow

  • sport

    LOL Lin got the same points as Kobrick in 16 minutes!!

  • Bearness

    So, what else is new? =P

  • roberlin

    Should be are you not LINtertained.

  • orLinaryjoe

    kobe not getting it up…what a shame.

  • MoominFloren

    Yes baby! we need more

  • Bearness

    On almost half the shots!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLIN 14 and Kobe 14 points….amazing Lin..!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If only Kobe could sit down for a while.

  • John Lee

    Lin 14pts on 8 shots, Kobe 14pts on 14, Rondo 8pts on 13. Just saying.

  • Rick Johnson
  • MoominFloren

    Super efficient !

  • real-dsb

    who’s Lin mostly guarding? and who’s mostly guarding Lin?

  • roberlin

    Lin’s guarding Rondo.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    that’s being sarcastic…

  • sport

    Lin guarding Rondo but he was out entire 2nd quarter and benched most of 1st quarter!

  • Promo Sports World

    Nothing cool about that tweet..

  • Promo Sports World

    Kobe as my Cali wife says is hella selfish

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You only can do so much Lin.

  • roberlin

    And rondo is guarding Lin.

  • MomentousPetey

    wut a dumass tweet

  • Alaingrvis

    its sarcastic

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ed Davis is like an “Asik with a lesser offense than Asik” version

    Jeremy made him look better on offense

  • Alaingrvis

    sarcasm i think

  • 7iger

    So you have MN wife too?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    seems like no one really cares if Lakers W or L….as long a JLin performs well..

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS takes so long to call a timeout.

  • Alaingrvis

    better blocker

  • MomentousPetey

    I’d take Davis’s offense over Asik’s

  • Bearness

    I think better hands though.

  • sport

    Lin needs to just keep shooting, all his starting teammates can’t score and never passes back out to him for wide open 3s!!

  • real-dsb

    I think Kobe told Rondo at breakfast to take as many shots as possible. Rondo has 13 FGAs, almost as many as Kobe 14 FGAs. Rondo has by far the most FGAs on the Celtics, but only 4th in pts with 8 pts. LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    so will boozer get what jeremy got last games. also wes has been doo doo

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nobody played well with Kobe except when Phil Jackson was the coach.

  • roberlin

    nice ball movement there. Kobe for the lay up.

  • Bearness

    Celtics are outrebounding Lakers like crazy.

  • Promo Sports World

    Mexican Salvadorian wife from the Bay Area

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Have Kobe go for drive rather than his jump shots.

  • 7iger

    Lin play fast BS not going to like it.

  • John Lee

    Petey’s sarcasm filter is functioning outside normal parameters.

  • MoominFloren

    sacre can help

  • sport

    Whatever!! BS doesn’t say crap about Kobrick or Nick Young so screw him!!

  • Bearness

    I’m going to guess BS will bring him back later than usual to keep Linsanity in check.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol if he didn’t they would’ve gotten blown out idk what game he’s watching

  • 7iger

    As I said it he got bench

  • MoominFloren

    i hope

  • 7iger

    I know but I just said that because BS said Lin play too fast sometimes

  • sport

    Game is lost, Lin just keep scoring when you get back in!!

  • roberlin

    Game over. Wonder when Lin will come back in.

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers so slow. have zero pace.

  • 7iger

    Going to be 20 pts lead soon

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers should put all the slow players on the bench

  • sport

    Will he come back in at all is the questions with this BS!!

  • golfhacker

    They have 2 speeds – slow and slower.

  • Bearness

    I’m going to say when there’s 4 min left. That was too much Lin for BS to stomach.

  • Bearness

    1 more speed – stand still. XD

  • Promo Sports World

    And he hated Kobe

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The problem of the Lakers is too much Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    rando can’t shoot to save his life

  • BobbyH

    And too much BS

  • cali7

    Scott seriously is a horrible coach.

  • sport

    That would be 0 speed. XD

  • BobbyH

    I think that’s Harden’s defense speed. Don’t take away his trade mark.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has played 19 minutes why not let him play the whole fourth. idk just an idea. you know put your fastest player in a fast game. just an idea

  • Bearness

    That’s what they do when they all just stand around watch Kobe. =P

  • sport

    Nick Young gets alot of 3 point fouls, when will Lin get any?

  • cali7

    Exactly

  • Alaingrvis

    scott wot because he sucks

  • MoominFloren

    I can’t tell who is worse. BS or McHale

  • BobbyH

    To be fair, Lin’s last play was out of control. Almost lost the ball.

  • golfhacker

    It would be 1 on 5 then. Lakers have no one who can run with Lin.

  • Briiick

    “Join us!”
    “Well, if you are better than us…”
    “Deal”

  • sport

    Both are worst in the league along with any coach who tailors to their ball hog SGs!

  • Alaingrvis

    I’ve never seen a coach do so little in game adjustments

  • MoominFloren

    wes, davis, sacre, clarkson can run

  • John Lee

    Fighting for 29th and 30th spot.

  • sport

    Never seen a coach who gives their starters and starting PG (except Kobrick) less than 30 minutes per game and leave them out almost entire 4th quarter with 6-5 minutes left!

  • Alaingrvis

    play him with young, wes, ellington, and davis. not great but better

  • cali7

    Ummm I’m not going to judge on one play

  • real-dsb

    why would you do that? are you trying to win the game or something? =)

  • MoominFloren

    and ellington

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Aggressive and fast pace, that’s small risk.

  • Alaingrvis

    i knew scott wouldn’t ride the hot hand

  • golfhacker

    I’m down with that…only make that the starting unit!

  • Bearness

    “Come on Jeremy! Kobe is trying to set more records here!”

  • sport

    Don’t care, BS and media only nitpicks Lin, I don’t see coach saying crap about Nick Young’s out of control plays or TOs at all!!

  • Alaingrvis

    ok i have an important thing to say. scot is worse then mchale. final

  • sport

    That’s cause his precious Price and Nick Young needs to get theirs! SMH

  • Riddick

    Yup, that’s getting awful close to bryant’s 10 TO…shut down Lin. smh

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS’s system is long jump shooting.

  • BobbyH

    Only be strict and true to yourself, then you can improve.

  • Riddick

    Not when Lin was out doing crimeFighter…that’s a no no…

  • Bearness

    Unless it’s 3s.

  • sport

    Never seen a coach who doesn’t start 4th quarter with his starting unit, what BS!

  • Alaingrvis

    lets see when lin comes in. 5-3 minutes mark

  • MoominFloren

    BS, u forget the 30 min rule! Lin only gets 19m, gotta bring him in now

  • Riddick

    Never seen a coach cater to 1 player over winning games. Yup, that would be noCoach scott.

  • Bearness

    He messed up his “rotation” by bringing in Lin way too late in 2Q today.

  • sport

    Every time 2nd unit gets the game closer, BS leaves them in too long! He doesn’t know how to coach at all!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The problem of Lakers stem from coaching. BS is not the top tier coach available on the market. These 2 long years of Kobe ball will be torturing for fans of Lakers.

  • Promo Sports World

    Coach is a fool

  • Promo Sports World

    Sub now

  • Promo Sports World

    Now

  • Promo Sports World

    Of course not

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He always throw his team under the bus. It’s BS who should be responsible for the dismal records of the Lakers.

  • Promo Sports World

    That price shot man come on

  • Alaingrvis

    price has close to the same minutes as lin lol

  • John Lee

    BS and Kobe winning the game for the Celtics.

  • Promo Sports World

    Should never happen ever

  • Bearness

    BS not even trying to hide his love for Price anymore.

  • John Lee

    Lakers 11 asts, Celtics 25. ‘Nuff said.

  • John Lee

    Coming out of the closet, love for PG who can’t playmake.

  • deesee5

    Kobe needs a better team (a better coach also). A better team playing with Kobe = rings.

  • Promo Sports World

    Nick Young is a microwave scorer that’s all he can do but it’s something to watch

  • Alaingrvis

    scott is a horrible coach

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy is tired right he is exhausted

  • Promo Sports World

    19 minutes exhaustion

  • Pete Roces

    LA better than Rox in mistreating Lin, BS is worse than Mchale

  • sport

    Never seen a coach who barely plays his starters for entire 4th quarter every single game! This is ridiculous!!

  • MoominFloren

    WHERE ARE THE STARTERS?

  • Riddick

    …and he’s dooooooone….nutn. Goooooo scott!

  • Guest

    Wahahahaha! Lollll! Nice pic!

  • sport

    Nick Young is the only one watchable on 2nd unit who can score.

  • Riddick

    Getting colder by the minute on the bench.

  • MoominFloren

    Tanking tanking tanking

  • Alaingrvis

    rox was worse but mchale a better coach

  • cshot

    this is badness

  • MoominFloren

    agree

  • Bearness

    I’m still not too sure about McHale is a better coach thing. Tough call.

  • deesee5

    “Come on Jeremy, we’re trying to tank here!”

  • Promo Sports World

    Amazing

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I hope Lin won’t come in. I want to see a blowout.

  • sport

    Kobrick always the only one back with 2nd unit on 4th quarter what the heck is this?

  • Carol Tiu

    He likes to make the game predictable to help the opponents.

  • Alaingrvis

    we are getting bs‘d

  • Briiick

    Scott doesn’t want to play Kobe so he bench the whole 1st unit to make it look better?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS send in Kobe to padd his stats.
    The most abysmal scoring leader in NBA at the cost of his team.

  • Bearness

    He will definitely bring him in, when the game is safely out of reach.

  • Promo Sports World

    Wesley Boozer can’t be happy either

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin is under the Lakers bus.

  • deesee5

    Trying to slow down for Kobe right?

  • Promo Sports World

    Word huge bus

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    to padd his stats. They wanted to give the scoring title to Kobe at the expense of the team.
    This is How BS can keep his job.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Pls don’t send Lin in to bail you out Bull S.

  • deesee5

    I’m telling you man, they dgaf. They tanking I tell ya!

  • Alaingrvis

    what a terrible coach

  • Skwo

    I’m betting BS is going to say “Lin played too fast in the 3rd quarter”

  • 311

    Just got back. Looking at the boxscore Lin seems to be doing well but little minutes. Why is he not in yet??

  • roberlin

    Lin better not come in for garbage time.

  • Byron Scott has outdone himself in supporting this “Kobe Performance Art”
    9-0 run Boston run since Kobe checked in!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I know like now. What a disgrace.

  • Yascar

    They’re not even pretending anymore right? This season is all about Kobe and his points. I’m so glad Jemrey put on a show. Hope he can do that every night.

  • sws94

    Sad. He should have brought in Lin. Kobe just took away all flow from the bench guys.

  • Promo Sports World

    Never seen deference like this to an old player in the nba

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Dear BS, Please don’t put Jeremy in to save your sorry state. I only have two eyes. I’m enjoying what’s happening at FedEx Arena.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin got really hot so bull s rested him for 10 minutes. ronnie has 20 minutes lin 19

  • roberlin

    why is Kobe in with the second unit???

  • sport

    14 points not enough I hope he can score 6 more points if he comes back in. 20 would look much better!

  • Promo Sports World

    Former Lakers kobe backers BS and Fish ain’t looking so hot

  • Promo Sports World

    Points

  • Riddick

    Lin get his numbers…then get out of Dodge, first chance he gets.

  • Yascar

    C’mon Boston bury this sorry franchise!

  • cali7

    Scott is going to play it differently at the next home game. I am convinced he does this at away games bc he thinks he can get away with it.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    “Lin on fire I must bench him so Kobe won’t look bad” BS.

  • 7iger

    Seem like Lin not going to see the floor again.

  • sport

    Kobrick 20-20 lol this is a joke!!

  • roberlin

    good. he doesn’t belong in garbage time. That’s for back-ups.

  • Promo Sports World

    How can laker players like this

  • MoominFloren

    please don’t bring Lin back to the game!

  • sport

    Stat padding what else? So he can pass MJ’s scoring record!

  • cali7

    He just needs 2 minutes

  • Bearness

    You mean like #24 who is on the floor right now?

  • 7iger

    Should let him in early, now, I don’t want Lin in the floor too.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol even rondo hot

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe is embarrassing the team….BS makes sure JLin doesn’t outscore Kobe..

  • BobbyH

    Lin got benched again b/c he played too fast in 3Q.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    “I told you Jeremy, your job is to feed Kobe not attacking the basket. You’re benched” BS.

  • Sacre 1-10 and is still playing in 4th quarter
    I guess Sacre has something that Lin didn’t have.

    Unbelieveable! They’ve got to be tanking to explain this incompetence.

  • roberlin

    he belongs in garbage time.

  • Promo Sports World

    Price — I got this

    Disgraceful

  • Alaingrvis

    scott is by far the worse coach I’ve ever watched in my life

  • cali7

    If you are going to do this at least let Clarkson play a little seriously

  • Carol Tiu

    Lakers is a joke of a team.

  • 7iger

    If Kobe isn’t in to catch MJ then I don’t know what.

  • sport

    No because he scored, tied points with Kobrick and made him look bad!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I am actually HAPPY. hahhahaha

  • roberlin

    I agree. It would be an inisult if Lin comes in for the last 2 minutes of this game.

  • BobbyH

    Yes, playing Lin more means less points for Kobe.

  • golfhacker

    I guess the coaching staff forgot to scout Zeller (sarcasm). Scrub having a career night against Lakers. Lol!

  • Dan Cohen

    huh?

  • 7iger

    In BS book Lin play too fast.

  • Promo Sports World

    He got lucky with Kidd and Cp3 early in his coaching career

  • cali7

    This is inexplicable. The game wasn’t over in the beginning of the 4th. Kobe playing garbage time for points. Just waiting until he gets injured playing when he shouldnt.

  • roberlin

    That line-up to finish the game was head shakingly stupid. Why leave Kobe out there with the second unit? Why keep Sacre and Price in for extended minutes?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m so happy that Kobe is still on the floor trying to get his 26 points average shooting.
    Jeremy can take a rest; nobody can play well with Kobe.

  • Jedi

    He’s in the top 2 of the worst coaches I’ve ever watched.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    psalm234…seems like this game is really getting into you…hard to watch…

  • Dan Cohen

    WHAT??? WHY???

  • kassiek

    hahahahahhahaha

  • sport

    I hope he doesn’t catch MJ, dude and everyone else after got 2 more years than MJ to surpass him! As if anyone would think he’s better just cause he scored more. MJ had 2 less years yet still got 6 rings and two 3 peats!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lakers is just Kobe and accessories.

  • 7iger

    To show that you get a better Price.

  • sport

    LOL Clarkson finally seeing some playing time, this is ridiculous can Mitch please first BS!

  • kassiek

    Tank

  • roberlin

    incompetence.

  • Carol Tiu

    I’ll bet LA players have very low morale with how this team is being run right now. Except kobe, that is.

  • 7iger

    The rotation today got me all dizzy.

  • MoominFloren

    This is nonsense!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    when the HC is clueless…they will do stupid things like …..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ma go watch some playoff intensity game

  • JC

    Lol got blown out by celtics! Kobe ball ftw

  • Bearness

    Either BS raised white flag as soon as 3Q ended or they are tanking. I’m going with tanking. I don’t believe even BS is this bad.

  • sport

    Purposeful tank or Incompetence I can’t tell probably both!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Rondo has more assists than the Lakers. LOL

  • Dan Cohen

    even mchale might’ve given clarky more minute.but then again that is only very true if lin was playing.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    what did Kobe say to rondo at the breakfast table?

  • kassiek

    BS

  • sport

    Davis really can’t make FTs.

  • Dan Cohen

    I didn’t get the chance to watch the whole game.. for the 3rd time.. but I saw play by play..
    was there any hints why lin was play only 19 minutes? injury? messed up?

  • cali7

    I am speechless by Scott’s incompetence. If he has any integrity he should resign. He clearly doesnt have the chops to head coach

  • rookie75094

    That’s it…. I have had it with this lakers bs and BS bs…trade Jlin NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kassiek

    And cannot always in foul trouble

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Question is where?

  • BobbyH

    Using tank as execuse to cover up incompetence.

  • sport

    LOL just made a 3 and walked away like Whatever. Dude is better than Price and he knows it!!

  • 7iger

    Worth run around like a kid when Lakers won against the Raptors.

    Hope he doesn’t bang his head on the table repetitively after this loss LOL.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clarkson just gave BS the middle finger with a 3s.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Guess what BS has to say to the media? oh….JLin..this and that …I suppose

  • Pete Roces

    Why did LA trade for Lin when they are into tanking mode? Why did they want to destroy Lin’s career? Why didn’t they just let Kobe play with all scrubs? So many questions need to find an answer!

  • roberlin

    weird substitution patterns by BS.

  • LA Tankers, ladies and gents!

    No reason to get upset at all :>
    Might as well think of this as a soap opera. “1001 Ways to Tank Without Being Caught”

    I want to see how Byron will explain this Tanking Episode to LA Media now

  • rookie75094

    any where he get to play decent minutes…. then on to Dallas next yeaR

  • Dan Cohen

    or bang his head on the table repeatedly..THAT would go even more viral.

  • 7iger

    Haha i just edited while u reply

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Jedi

    Except that they’re caught!! Just denying.

  • sport

    Worthy should punch BS!

  • roberlin

    BS did let Kobe play with all the scrubs. It was weird.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Is the media stupid or intend to ignore? Kobe is too slow for defense.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t really care now. I switched to watching another team.

  • rookie75094

    I AM TRYING MY DARNEST TO NOT SWEARING AT BS AND KOBE RIGHT NOW….ARRRRGGGGHHHH

  • Jedi

    BS’s heart sank when that counted. That’s when he decided he needed to watch this guy to stop this turning into a win.

  • Worthy started questioning if this is the maximum Lakers team. “This is It!”
    He’s giving up on the Lakers

  • roberlin

    Byron Scott going to trash Lin for scoring, going too fast, not getting teammates involved.

  • kassiek

    no way they can destroy Lin 🙂

  • cali7

    Crazy. Bench him… we might win

  • sport

    benched by BS during 1st quarter when Kobe was chucking shot after shot and had 2 TOs when trying to pass to Lin! Lin didn’t come back until 2:45minutes in 2nd quarter so he just looked to score and score at the rim for 7 points! After words he was playing in 3rd quarter and got benched after he tied points with Kobrick who took almost double the shots!

  • Skwo

    What a joke. There is no good basketball reason why Lin should have been benched like this. Basketball politics is a pretty powerful force.

  • Riddick

    Kobe: ‘I’ll let you win this one if you come to Lakers next year.’
    Rondo: ‘I’ll think on it. Do I still get the win?’
    Kobe: Ok…

    Celtics win:
    Rondo: ‘Psych…not coming to your loser team!’

  • Dan Cohen

    that. was. awesome.. he didn’t even jump..and just throws it up by splitting 3 (THREE) defenders !

  • Carol Tiu

    BS probably thinking to himself “Lin’s turning rogue on me.”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe will not be able to keep up if Lin were allowed to play his speed game.

  • 717

    I don’t mind the tanking so much. But it seems like they’re water-boarding Jeremy.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Exactly

  • Riddick

    As most of us here has. smh

  • Dan Cohen

    Sure there was no slight hint of injury or whatever… ???
    Or maybe bs saw something he didn’t like.. besides tie points with kobe.

    Post interview might reveal the truth!

  • 7iger

    And he still a few steps behind us fans hehe. We already gave up.

  • Dan Cohen

    did he actually say that

  • Pete Roces

    Can Lin demand a trade?

  • Kobe+4 bench players pretty much summed up the goal for this season.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin played only 19+min. Even Ronnie Price played more minutes than Lin. The stats showed that Lin is efficient if he plays in his own way.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes but $15 mil current contract, not that easy.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    to settle the score…after JLin dropped 38 on them in 2012…

  • sport

    JLin was playing alot of One Man Fast breaks cause his teammates were slow and scored all on his own! BS is full of BS I don’t care what he says!!! Lin played well during his short stretch just looking to score like Linsanity!

  • Yascar

    Don’t worry Lin fans. The agenda is so obvious with this joke of a game that everyone can see it. The tank-and-get-Kobe-points at the expense of Lin and every other player (except Price) is so obvious, it’s laughable. I wanna hear what the LA media and fans say about this one.

  • Dan Cohen

    hehehehehehe

  • cali7

    It must be horrible to be on a tanking tram when you came from a team that had aspirations for a championship. It is horrible to watch but how much worse to experience it like lin

  • 7iger

    It seen to me BS just dislike anything Lin does.

  • Bearness

    Carlos Boozer – Lowest minutes among starters. His crime was quick fouls.
    Jeremy Lin – Second lowest minutes among starters. His crime was quick points.

  • Jedi

    And if one of the ‘bench’ players turn out to be a star (Jeremy), then better not let him play much.

  • He tried to be careful in saying that. “I wonder if This is It”
    Couple good games here and there. But this might be it.
    Giving up that many points to Zeller who averaged 6pts, etc.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LoL

  • Guest

    This is what it feels like now reading the comments…hehehe

  • Dan Cohen

    oooh..maybe that’s why. ..he wants lin to play princeton or throw kobe the ball on the half court offense instead of fast breaks..
    BUT SHOWTIME LAKERS IS ABOUT FAST BREAKS!!!!! magic and abdul.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is the time that I think Jeremy should start from the bench; the less Kobe, the better.

  • Jedi

    TWEET THAT! LOL

  • Dan Cohen

    HAHAHA
    FAST BREAK POINTS..
    BS doesn’t want SHOWTIME LAKERS style of play.

  • MomentousPetey

    Fire Scott, sign Karl.

  • LOL Lin-carcerated for running Kobe to the ground :>

  • 7iger

    You mean stare from the bench? yeah he can help Clarkson warm up the bench if he not starter.

  • Jedi

    Except that Kobe plays with the bench also!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I think BS is too preoccupied with pleasing Kobe.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That would have been really nice…. but well…

  • beidou

    It’s time for MAXXIS president to pay Mitch and Jim buss a visit. They have to see return on the 25 millions of sponsorship.

  • 717

    You’re grasping at straws.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’ve given up on scott and the lakers organization for letting this brainless coach run the team. can’t wait for offseason

  • Briiick

    Half of that by the mid season.

  • roberlin

    JEREMY LIN IS A STARTER. Nuff said.

  • MoominFloren

    haha…that’s why i just checked the lakersground, want to see their thoughts on this ridiculous thing !

  • Dan Cohen

    too early for them.

  • Guest

    And about BS this is how it feels

  • MoominFloren

    No way. Lin is a starter !

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe will be the only pathetic scoring leader in NBA by shooting the Lakers at their feet.

  • Dan Cohen

    plus….it’s not SCOTT.. it’s you know who.. that cannot be gone and only traded, but no team will want him due to his massive contract for 2 years.

  • 7iger

    Lin don’t even get that much minutes as a starter. He probably not going to see much floor time if he play with 2nd unit.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    the moment BS took Kobe out with 1:33 in the 4Q, LAL went on to score 8 points…that says a lot about Kobe

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeech this is the second time I won’t be seeing Jeremy in the playoffs 🙁 oh well.

  • sport

    Lets hope he does run Kobe to the ground so Linsanity can break out!

  • Guest

    Ouch…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is infamous for taking all his teammates out of their games.

  • Dan Cohen

    Or maybe BS is saying..ok I will take things one at a time.. let kobe pass MJ..to get the lakers something..AND THEN I will coach to win. .. kobe MUST get 20points minimum… he is about what 90ish before passing mj.

  • MoominFloren

    THE TANK IS REEEEAAAALLLLL. That also explains why Lin didnt look bad after loss. He knows what is going on

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The toxic Kobe. D12 us right about trading Kobe.

  • sport

    Kobe plays with the bench also! Also Lin won’t be handling the ball with golden boy Price as PG and Kobe Jr, Nick Young! So no way!!

  • Briiick

    I said it a day ago that a retirement show of two seasons is just too long, too boring for any fan to watch.

  • 717

    He might yet. Only takes a trade.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I love kitties. Please don’t insult them 🙂

  • MoominFloren

    unless he is traded in mid season 🙂

  • Dan Cohen

    yeah.. we sorta know that.. just watch MJ and him play.. there is a difference. MJ DOES know how to play..he gets open shots to shoot instead of the traffic and congested ones that kobe shoots.

  • golfhacker

    Wow – Worthy and Horry backing Lin on post-game show. Basically questioning why Lin didn’t play more after he got hot. Said assistant coaches should have told BS to keep Lin in.

  • CJSHYY

    After Kobe came in in 4Q they lose from -9 to -20?! I really don’t know why he was there for garbage time?!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    yeap, when JLin ignored Kobe, J went on with 7 points…

  • Dan Cohen

    traded to a contending team that is.. but then he will be a bench player if that is the case

  • CJSHYY

    I want to know too… this coach is so bad… smh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Too much money just the get rid of him.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Spurs, Warriors, Grizzlies are the only contenders as of the moment.

    These are the 3 teams I see that can use Jeremy’s strengths to the full.

  • Dan Cohen

    wanted to see the post interview.. wonder if anyone will dare to ask.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Did anyone notice that Sacre was shooting 1 out of 10!

  • Guest

    So do I. Or else I won’t post them. Hahaha. This cat has all the right expression to express what we feel now about the game the coach…etc

  • Rick Johnson

    From the post game Scott going to make changes in the starting lineup.

  • Dan Cohen

    but not 0 – 10..so it’s ok.

  • Dan Cohen

    linnie to the benchy i guess huh

  • Promo Sports World

    No laker i mean no laker can be watching this and saying yeah this is working…bad teams can try…the Knicks yes my Knicks suck but tonight they busted their tail to lose lol but they give effort. This laker team is all about Kobe effort which is piss poor

  • roberlin

    that was the weirdest move – keeping in Sacre for most of the 4th quarter. Was that an attempt to match up with Zoeller?

  • sport

    Kobe thinks it means something that he can surpass MJ’s scoring but it doesn’t! He still doesn’t have the rings nor game like MJ and never will! Watch Duncan surpass him and tie with MJ for number of rings!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Credit to @bearness:disqus, here’s a tweet of his comment LOL

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/541064179533512706

  • Dan Cohen

    20 game is like a qtr of a season.. isn’t that too long.. should’ve changed much earlier? like 10 games.. or 15 max.

  • CJSHYY

    What did he say?

  • 717

    Lin can demand anything he wants. There is no law that forces the Lakers to comply.

  • Dan Cohen

    holy cr-p.. didn’t think someone would REALLY tweet that!!!!.

  • Alaingrvis

    who cares

  • Dan Cohen

    everyone except kobe.

  • Worth and Horry sound like the only reasonable ex-Lakers who want Lakers to win.

  • Promo Sports World

    Changes don’t matter unless it’s 24

  • roberlin

    Ronnie Price time!!! LOL.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s kinda ironic that the teams I see that can use Jeremy’s strengths to the full are the top championship contenders yet they don’t really have space for him as of the moment.

  • sws94

    I’m not surprised, they’ve been fair. Nothing Byron did in the 2nd half made sense. He threw the game if you ask me. He coached like an idiot. He was a disgrace.

  • Rick Johnson

    Said it’s enough time to see if the starters gel. It’s time to make a change. Wouldn’t say what

  • Alaingrvis

    put lin to the bench i dare you scotty boy. please rescue him from your slow offense and brain. also leave kobe out there on a island.

  • MoominFloren

    Dallas…….my dream

  • Dan Cohen

    yes you can.. put all post up players around kobe..and then when kobe sub out.. put in the ball moving system of players.

  • Bearness

    LOL, I don’t tweet so thanks, I think?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2 point difference.
    What if they played Jordan Hill and took out Sacre. Hill shot 6 out of 6. He only got 6 shots.

  • sport

    Any Eastern team can use Lin as starter and to his abilities so long as they don’t a ball hog SG!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    when the HC said “I don’t know”….you better believe him…he is clueless

  • roberlin

    He might actually do it. I wouldn’t be shocked at all if Lin is sent to the pine.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh h*** no. East is really weak. Better he stays at a stronger West team.

  • 717

    Lin can turn any team into a contender. Just not a BS Kobe one.

  • sport

    Lin won’t get his own team in the West! Even Lebron plays in the East!

  • k.smith

    Scott said lineup change on Sunday. It’s gonna suck if Boozer comes off the bench with Lin.

  • sure, keep them coming. You’ll get famous :> haha..

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Those coaching staff were handpicked by BS.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Horry should be the coach and Byron Scott should go to Russia.

  • MomentousPetey

    LOLOLOLOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol really

  • Briiick

    Can’t be worse than BS’ coaching the 1st unit.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t want to discredit Jeremy’s talent and strengths by putting him in the weaker East. It’s like saying he can only do damage when he goes to a weaker conference.

  • cali7

    Scott says he is making 1 or 2 line up changes next game. Said starters not playing with energy not geling

  • Arsenium12 .
  • JC

    He’s already on the bench…shooting 5/8 tonight!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Pick up points for his scoring average.

  • Jedi

    Very nice!!

  • k.smith

    Boozer sucks.

  • MoominFloren

    ok. that means
    Sacre for boozer
    Priceless price for our boy

  • John Lee

    BS finally revealing his true colors, and the plot thickens.

  • 7iger

    That is from JLin Portal.

  • Jedi

    He forgot to add: “After I discuss it with Kobe.”

  • Arsenium12 .
  • It’s a great line. Benched for scoring points too quickly!

  • 717

    wes 0-5, boozer 1-6, price 3-10

  • cali7

    Said going to say who on sunday night

  • Alaingrvis

    yea boozer sucks

  • He actually played in Greece in 1 year so he can go back there LOL

  • 7iger

    Since, Lin and Boozer have the least minutes as starter today I guess they are the two.

  • MomentousPetey

    Textbook defense by Lin today; slowing down Rondo, disrupting opponents’ offensive flow, helping out bigs……………………………………………………………………………can’t say the same for the rest of the “starters”, …can I, Scott?

  • MoominFloren

    hahaha

  • sport

    Les hope Boozer and Johnson both goes to the bench but I doubt it! Can we see some starters who can actually run fast breaks with Lin?

  • Rick Johnson

    Will see the true weakness of the starters and it isn’t Lin.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • roberlin

    New Laker starting line-up

    PG Kobe
    SG Kobe
    SF Kobe
    PF Kobe
    C Kobe

    all kobe, 24/7

  • true, no other way to explain it.

  • MoominFloren

    dont u see they are playing with effort….for tanking….4 /20 combined….lol

  • Alaingrvis

    if scott was smart which he isn’t it would be boozer for davis and wes for ellington or young.likly ellington. but he isn’t i am expecting lin to be bench because he clearly hates how lin plays even when he scores. this will be the preseason again. bench will out play the starters heavily.

  • 7iger

    And BS look at Lin and say “yeah play harder.”

  • 717

    Jeremy Lin said “we’ve got to play harder. And if I ever get off the bench that’s what I’d do”

  • sport

    Starters minus Lin today equals “Walking Dead”. They were so slow, just stood around passing to Kobe and ignored Lin! So glad Lin looked to score for his own points!

  • rookie75094

    are you still against Jlin going to Dallas?

  • Illbe

    Wow! A bit shocked that Lin was benched. All those times that BS brought him back in the forth even though lin wasn’t scoring much and this game Lin was doing his thing scoring at will. Makes no sense! Either there is a conspiracy to keep Lin from shining or BS is the worst coach in history??

  • Dan Cohen

    Ok, after watching highlights, I suspect why BS bench lin.. he was getting way too aggressive and was not really playing the half court set or something.. especially that last ‘double dribble when they was down by like 12 or 10..

    But he was being aggressive which is his game and a good thing.. so what now not aggressive is not good and too aggressive is not good? SO WHAT THE F does BS want!!

  • shhhhh .. let’s not hope ill-wish.. Kobe will run Kobe to the ground
    Lin and his fans can stay blameless 😀

  • Jedi

    Not complete with the Kobe announcer, the Kobe color commentator, and the Kobe half time show people.
    Oh yeah, let’s not forget the Kobe dancers.

  • roberlin

    BS wants JLin on the bench. That’s what he wants.

  • Dan Cohen

    cr-p computer gitch ..made me post twice.

  • roberlin

    KObe dancers . . . ewww.

  • Dan Cohen

    oh.,so it is true.. he was bench by not playing the set BS wants.. he said ‘MY’ biggst thing.

  • roberlin

    New Laker starting line-up (for real)

    PG – Price
    SG – Kobe
    SF – Johnson
    PF – Boozer
    C – Hill

    Lin man out.

  • MomentousPetey

    So, is your name b***sh** or Byron Scott, which is it, coach?

  • Rick Johnson

    Price doesn’t score any points anyway so is a better “fit”.

  • John Lee

    Lin actually meant play “faster”, but didn’t want to openly humiliate KoBS.

  • Plus Lin not cramping Kobe’s slow style

  • Dan Cohen

    yeah because price is basically nonExistence..so kobe can play for 2! ..no one to get his shots!.

  • CJSHYY

    Of course that’s what he wants but not sure it’s what FO wants? I guess BS did it on purpose to play lin so less min in 1st half to make him looked bad so he can tell FO to send Lin to bench… Thanks God, Lin got his 7 points less than 2 min? We will see what happen on Sun then?

  • roberlin

    exactly. That’s what BS wants in a PG – someone who doesn’t do anything, and Ronnie Price fits that to a T.

  • CJSHYY

    I think Boozer will be out first… bc he only played 18 min today the shortest one next it’s Lin.

  • John Lee

    Kobe to Lin: “You’re p*ssing it the wrong way!”

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ok, so the Lakers are playing slow to make Kobe last the whole season, to the detrimental of the team.

    Ugh, sad…

  • Jedi

    He was hoping that Lin would have ‘proven’ to everyone that he was a bench player by this time in the season. But unfortunately for BS, Lin did some magic in his 19 minutes tonight, and now BS can’t do it without an uproar. Hope his as* is ready for the firestorm if he does bench Jeremy.

  • John Lee

    Lin to Dallas is only viable if Ellis takes a hike.

  • roberlin

    That would be the other move – Davis in for Boozer.

  • Jedi

    Kobe con’d: “You’re supposed to p*ss on it after I do it first!”

  • CJSHYY

    I guess BS already tried to play Boozer & Lin in bench min today… smh! Bc Lin got hot today so he is not sure FO will say OK.. that’s why he said one or two not sure yet…

  • roberlin

    Here’s the irony of Lin to the bench. People have been wanting Lin to play with Ed Davis and the second unit BUT – it’s likely Lin moves to the bench AND Davis replaces Boozer in the starting line-up.

    So, worst case scenario – Lin gets benched, doesn’t get to play with Davis either. LOSE LOSE.

  • 7iger

    He probably get to warm the bench with Clarkson hehe.

  • John Lee

    In other words, BS doing an awesome job as a tanking coach.

  • JC

    Umm…Kobe can’t catch up the speed you know

  • roberlin

    Lol.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    Kobe having breakfast with Rondo was NO coincidence, most likely recruiting.

  • Arsenium12 .

    TWC Sportsnet summary of game with embedded video of Robert Horry and James Worthy talking. Worthy says “I’m starting to wonder if this is it … If this is the team we have to get accustomed to this year.”

    http://www.twcsportsnet.com/lakers/articles/20141205/lakers-wrap-vs-celtics-december-5-2014

  • blubell
  • Everything is about “Making Kobe Look Good So BS Avoids Getting Fired”

    Boozer D is lacking and Lin’s more-effective-but-taking ball-away-from-Kobe is a no-no.
    So both might come off the bench.

    It’s about auditioning which players will make Kobe look the greatest.

    Jeremy’s post game interview
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhpFrLh4-MA

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I want to but I can’t. I’m as trapped as Jeremy is.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    These reporters.. can’t they wait till Jeremy gets a shirt on?

    I sound like a hypocrite.

  • Riddick

    Well, it’s not like Lin has any input, so what is he suppose to say: ‘Not happening or I’m going to throw a bryant fit!’.

  • joyce ward

    The only reason why lin is probably will be benched is that Mitch has told Scott to develop Clarkson. Scott has no plan,just like his plan with Randle. He wanted lin to develop the rookies. Scott ‘s plan to develop Clarkson is to send him to the D League to get some playing. The 1st unit is that slow and not a lot of basketball IQ. They will just feed the ball to Kobe. Personally, I think if Lin plays with the 2nd unit, he will be relieved. I think the Lakers want lin, but they want him as a backup PG..just my opinion

  • John Lee

    I thought those reporters were acting on your preferred timing?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not really. I prefer somewhere with lots of privacy.

  • blubell

    What are you complaining about? lol

  • 7iger

    If so BS will find out soon. Price man will just go double team Kobe.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Destroying what is supposed to be “for my eyes only” view.

  • blubell

    yes it is “for MY eyes only” 🙂

  • John Lee

    Love that assertiveness! LOL

  • John Lee

    Chun-Li vs. Cammy. Ready…Fight!

  • blubell
  • roberlin

    I’m not sure what that tweet means. Price and Lin deferred to BS about what?

  • joyce ward

    So Kobe is actually coaching the team..WOW…smh

  • SamC89

    I actually don’t care anymore. I just want Lin to get his points.

    It’s obvious the Lakers are,

    1. Trying to tank
    2. Want to devalue Lin so they can resign him for cheap

    I believe this is the case because the media is still so nice to Lin so you know the higher ups don’t want to alienate him.

  • roberlin

    Bet he wouldn’t follow BS’s lead if he benched Kobe, lol.

  • John Lee

    Serena having a dyslexic day…

  • 717

    OMG. Jeremy needs to find an impersonator who can take his place for these lame interviews. Even Houston never made J look this distressed.

  • Briiick

    Kobe will back him up until there is a need for a scapegoat.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    They were probably asked about what they think about the plans of changing the lineup, but they don’t know anything so probably they just told the reporter/s who asked them to confirm it with Scott.

  • 717

    So full of s***!

  • SamC89

    Not necessarily. If Lin realizes that the Lakers are simply trying to tank he could just go all selfish and look to score first. Who else on the 2nd unit will stop him? Not only that, but his chemistry with Boozer isn’t that bad. At the very least he can finish down low.

  • 717

    Your posts do not fly over everyone’s head.

  • CJSHYY

    If so they I don’t think Lin will stay in Lakers unless there is no team wants him…

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    I prefer to be Christie Montiero.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Agreed. At least Kobe won’t like to be outscored by his teammate, not even close.

  • sport

    Good make it hard for Kobe to score so he won’t surpass MJ’s points!

  • Illbe

    JLin…speaking in general about the team without letting his true thoughts come out. He feels the heat and knows the team is not right. Like I said before…head games…no honesty of what the Laker people want from him. They obviously do not want him to ball…and they don’t really mind when he tanks. Games, Games…

  • Briiick

    Kobe’s recruiting becomes more and more like a joke when his team is at the bottom of the league.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Talking about penetration!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Cool. The cheers when it came in, it’s like he’s playing at Staples.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kobe: I’m just an accomplice in this crime…don’t blame me”

  • The most feasible theory for BS playing Kobe+4bench players in crunch time are “Auditioning” to be perfect role players to make Kobe look great. #KobeIdol

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/541077184186966016

  • roberlin

    The more I think about it, I think BS can only make one move – either bench Lin or Boozer. He can’t bench both.

    If he benched both Lin and Boozer, there wouldn’t be enough offense with Davis and Price together in the line-up with Kobe, Johnson, and Hill. He’d want another offensive weapon in there, whether it’s Lin or Boozer.

    So, either he benches Lin and puts in Price, or he benches Boozer for Davis.

    The smart thing would be to just bench Boozer. But, we all know who’s likely to get thrown under the bus, lol.

  • 717

    It’s official. Kobe is worse than Harden. BS is as bad as McHale. And Mitch has done nothing to protect Lin’s interests. At this stage LA is worse than Houston.

  • blubell
  • rookie75094

    bs only play Jlin to make him looks bad… if the opposite is happening , he then benched Jlin….. bs will not allow the Jlin that beat the hornets to ever reappear again

  • Thanks! I’ll add to video gallery

  • KHuang

    Every time Lin does a play like this, I should shout out “EXORCIST MOVE!”

    Coach George Karl who’s a big time Lin fan said that John Stockton and Steve Nash would do at least one unbelievable play a game where Karl’s head spun around like in the “Exorcist” movie.

    How Lin split those three defenders is beyond me. EXORCIST MOVE!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Most welcome sight to see. Don’t care how it will happen, only want JLin does well.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Somebody should exorcise those “demons” in the Lakers coaching staff then. Start with Byron. I’ll bring the sage and candles.

  • 311

    Vintage Linsanity right there…Lin like a running back, finding daylight somehow and weaving through the defense to the goal. Amazing shot especially the way he contorts his body.

  • very true. BScott saw Price made 2 3s in the past 2 games so he might be misguided thinking Price will be a 3PT threat. He made 1-4 today

  • blubell

    During Linsanity, away games always felt like home games. Lakers can have that too if they just let Jeremy do his thing out there…

  • 717

    Jeremy was quoted as saying he still believes this team can make the playoffs. He sounds like Don Quixote.

  • If Byron benches Lin for Price, I don’t think Lin will sign with the Lakers next season.
    And we know Kobe isn’t serious about mentoring Lin as the next “championship PG” because Kobe has the power to say to Byron I want Lin to play next to me.

    We’re about to learn 2 big TRUTH soon!
    Knowing is always good.

  • Carol Tiu

    BS must really hate these guys for cramping his style when it comes to Jeremy. Good that our boy played great just before BS setting him up to come off the bench.

  • Jedi

    Your problem is that the camera didn’t pan lower!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Well Jeremy and Davis said hi to the Spurs coaching staff on their last game at Staples and one of the Mavericks assistant coaches was “dragging” him towards their locker room…. so…

    LOL yeah. I’m speaking way ahead of the future.

  • Briiick

    Tanking is definitely the worse strategy for LAL conveniently located so close to many movie stars. The young Buss probably thought that by outsourcing the team to Kobe, they are able to close their eyes and plug their ears for two years and reemerge as a contender in the 3rd season. This retirement show is already turning off everyone after 15 games let alone for two seasons.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t care about the lower part… in public.

  • 717

    I think we’ve already known since Lin was benched in the 4th Q despite scoring a DD.

  • Carol Tiu

    Deja vu. I think something like that happened the last game vs WAS.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Sample size too small to infer.

  • 717

    Kobe is under contract for next season as well. And Jeanie talked about re-signing him after that. The Lakers can never be competitive with Kobe on the team.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Kobe plays almost 40 min. So, make no sense.

  • John Lee

    Fine, then @bluebell will be Lin Xiaoyu. 🙂

  • Jedi

    Yeah, it’s also pretty obvious that BS used some voodoo to get his job. Exorcise that away as well!

  • Carol Tiu

    Agree totally.

  • deesee5

    But most of us wanted Lin out of Houston right? Most of us wanted Lin anywhere but Houston. I’ve always said its better for Lin to go somewhere that suits him better. Being in a team that dosen’t do him any good dosen’t help much. I had a feeling something like this would happen esp when playing with Kobe. I thought things would have changed but nope, still the same story with this Laker squad.

    Anyhow at least Lin isn’t being trashed as bad as he was in Houston. At least I’m not seeing too much of it.

  • Acbc

    Kobe thinks he will be remembered for scoring more points than MJ. The truth is that the chorus of snickering in front of Kobe’s back is growing louder and louder.

    MDA was chased out of LA for a losing and was blamed for injuries by his system, yet he’s record last year so far is much better. He is so myopic right now that with yes men around him, all he is getting is advice he wants to hear. Kobe is heading into a corner that he won’t be able to get out of and end his career as the most hated Laker ever for selfishly putting himself above the team.

  • jolno

    Guess Scott’s secret weapon Ronnie Price is going to take over as the starting PG soon. Price had a very average game by his standard making 30% of his FG (31.9% season average) and 25% of his 3PT (25.9% season average). At least he is going to make Kobe look good by consistently shooting a lower FG% than Kobe!

  • John Lee

    Mitch is still better than Morey, and LA media better than Houston propaganda industry.

  • deesee5

    Do you think Karl would really make a big difference with this team? This team looks hopeless. Lol

  • deesee5

    I agree with you, and I see it. That’s the one thing that’s good about all this.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    No, it not wise. Kobe will be remembered for tanking his team to score more points than MJ.

  • Briiick

    As I suspected, everything is under Kobe for two seasons so the coach faces no pressure from the management.

  • deesee5

    They still got them clippers though.

  • 717

    He had to get out of Houston because it could have gotten even worse in the third and final year. But what’s happening now with BS Kobe is surreal and unexpected. Lin looks miserable.

  • 717

    Mitch may be better than Morey but it’s hard to tell. Morey had power. Mitch doesn’t seem to be doing anything to help Lin get treated fairly. If he lets BS start Price over Lin, then forget about it.

  • CJSHYY

    I agree w you. If Lakers put Lin to bench then I believe Lin will be traded soon… All the Lakers problems all came from Kobe… Like today, after he entered the game in 4Q by himself… they lose even more…?! smh!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good that you still have “faith” with Kobe. Give him up about a month ago especially after JLin first double double.

  • Alaingrvis

    wes can play like crap day in day out. all they say is defense and its ok

  • rookie75094

    every game… the Lakers’ aroma is getting worse… from perfume initially … now it is getting close to a water treatment plant

  • 717

    The Rox managed to convince people that Bev deserved to start over Lin. Will anyone believe that Price beat Jeremy out of the starting position?

  • roberlin

    Who would replace Wes? Ellington?

  • blubell

    Nick Young?

  • roberlin

    Young’s too small really to play SF. He’s a shooting guard.

  • Alaingrvis

    young is listed as a sf

  • roberlin

    It boggles my mind that Price, a guy who was that close to being cut a week or two ago, is probably going to be the new starting PG. It’s bizarro world in L.A.

  • roberlin

    is he? He sure is small for a SF.

  • Alaingrvis

    idc at this point let kobe bail himself out. lin young bench could be fun.love the way the bench plays. not slow and pathetic

  • blubell

    I don’t know… I really think it will be Boozer who will be benched. Too optimistic?

  • roberlin

    you think it’s going to be great for Lin to get 15-20 minutes a game? Did you forget how awful it was for Lin to come off the bench last season?

  • blubell

    He subs in for Wes…

  • JoeTeam

    youuuu …

  • roberlin

    true. I still don’t think they move Young to the starting line-up, but really, who knows what BS is going to do.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is 6’7 listed same height as wes. well he is listed at that height

  • CJSHYY

    I think if Lin really becomes a bench his playing time will be just like today… that sure not good for him.

  • Alaingrvis

    well my point is lakers will be even more crap. so let kobe get scott fired

  • Dan Cohen

    out to where?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    meeee….

  • roberlin

    yup. Price the golden boy will get 30 to 35 minutes, and Lin will be lucky to get more than 20 minutes a game.

    This is all bad. 🙁

  • roberlin

    That’s 6’7 with the hair, lol. That’s an extra two inches. 😀

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Alaingrvis

    scott has been horrible as a coach so i can’t tell what his scrub behind will do

  • TTNN

    that’s why he is trying to get Kobe extension after two years too.

  • Alaingrvis

    i used to say scott is not crazy enough to start price. now i know he definitely is

  • TTNN

    I don’t think so, it is more likely to start Ellington instead of Price. Price has no 3s, and that would not help Kobe.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Longer Laker highlights video for tonight’s game …

  • Alaingrvis

    highlight or low light

  • Dan Cohen

    basically someone was asking or hinting to see if anyone of them know in advance..and if one did..that means the pg position will change.. and they say go as BS about it as they have no dmn clue.

  • deesee5

    Was his mpg better than Bev last season? I can’t remember. I’m sure Lin will play a lot still. Probably more than price.

    *edit* nvm; PB 31mpg Lin like 28mpg.

  • Dan Cohen

    why would haters upset he was bench?

  • CJSHYY
  • blubell

    Mychal Thompson from ESPNLA said Rondo would be a great fit because he is a pass first guard… who wouldn’t want to play with a PG who will focus on passing rather than shooting.
    He must have forgotten Rondo shot 18 times.
    A Martinez again blaming Jeremy for poor defense as if all of Rondo’s 12 points were scored on Lin. He also defends BScott’s coaching. This guy is just unbelievable. lol.

  • Alaingrvis

    what lol if its that it like doing nothing with slow boozer back there.but if it means lin plays with the bench as well ill be happy but again I’m expecting the worse with scott

  • roberlin

    I think that guy is being serious, but he’s clueless. He’s the guy who said Jordan Hill is the second best Laker this season.

  • blubell

    IMO, Boozer will most likely be benched.

  • 717

    Lin and Bev each averaged close to 30 MPG. BS always said the starter will play the bulk of the minutes. Some think BS will start Ellington over Lin. Then Lin needs to share minutes with Price and Clarkson. Next stop the Twilight Zone.

  • Acbc

    The biggest mistake Lin made was to declare that he believes the Lakers could still make the playoffs. Kiss of death Jereemy…off to them Enoch with ya.

  • grover chang

    The pattern has not been a team gets worse after Lin leaves, but better. Lin leaves the Knicks, next season they are good. Lin leaves the rockets, they are now one of the top teams in the league. If Lin goes to the bench do not be surprised if the starters play better. I don’t think lin dragged those teams down, rather the superstars lin played with were not comfortable sharing the spotlight with Lin. Once lin sits the superstars play better team basketball. If you share the ball with other players they may make a good shot. You share the ball with Lin then you share the whole crowd because the fans get excited. Ball hogs like melo, harden, and Kobe do not like to share the crowd. They are not Duncan or Lebron,

  • roberlin

    If Lin is going to play more than Price, what’s the point of benching him?

  • Alaingrvis

    ignore. also 12 points we lost i think 113 lol thats a 100 points. also lin played 19 minutes

  • blubell

    A lot of people are saying Kobe and Hill won’t be part of the line up change. Most likely be Wes, Boozer, or Jeremy.

  • CJSHYY

    I know why he said Hill is the second best Lakers player that was base on his stats… right now it’s Young.

  • cali7

    He is supposed to be there for defense for kobe.

  • roberlin

    I agree with that. Hill and Kobe are definitely starting. Of the other three, we’ll have to wait and see.

  • CJSHYY

    These people changed all the time… no need to care… all BS!!!

  • grover chang

    The conclusion was written before the season started. The lakers will suck because they have no talent other then Kobe. They will lose and Kobe will score. This is a self fulfilling prophecy. No one will blame Kobe if the lakers lose and he scores, that’s what all the pundits said should happen.

    They are dead wrong. Kobe hogging is killing any chance to win.

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t think so bc if they really put Lin to bench all bc Kobe then you just count how many min Kobe will be on the court then the rest will go to Lin if he is a bench.

  • For his defense, maybe. But with BScott not so keen in Lin plus his favorite not scoring 0 pts, it might be the best time to change the lineup.

    There will be an outcry for sure if Lin is benched for Price.
    The numbers are just not there.

    We need to come up with pre-emptive comparison to show how ludicrous that decision will be.

  • cali7

    I thought la was a classier organization than the rockets and they are in certain respects but letting kobe run roughshod all over them like this is too much. These unspeakable things keep happening to Lin, including no foul calls to say the least yet he keeps his integrity and remains humble.

  • blubell

    No worries. I don’t care. Just sharing what I heard on the radio while driving back home from work 😉

  • 717

    The worst case scenario would be Lin and Boozer to the bench, and Price (or Ellington) and Davis to start.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Their job is to say what the fans want to hear to favor the franchise. Rondo a pass first but Kobe is no catch and shoot, you don’t earn credit for assist from that.

  • I don’t have faith in good-hearted Kobe, just business-minded Kobe.

    If Kobe likes Lin, it’s because of his popularity in Asia which will help Kobe Inc after Kobe retires. So it’s a business motivation for Kobe.

  • David Kim

    Follow Robin Lundberg‏@robinlundberg
    If you’ve never seen Carlos Boozer play defense, than you are just like everyone else.

    LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I guess you and I are both wrong about LA.

  • Dan Cohen

    man.. so disappointing that I have to go back and was his break out games with the nets and that run he had.

  • That would be logical to have Lin-Davis PnR as a threat next to Kobe.
    But I’m also wary of BS-Price unreasonable connection.

  • blubell
  • 717

    Great point! So they should trade Lin ASAP.

  • Alaingrvis

    younge has a 40 percent shooting percentage. 1 better then kobe

  • JoeTeam

    my five game prediction: 0 for 1.

    I dropped in for the 3 min stint. I was amazed Went out to dinner, came back and saw no minutes for Lin in Q4. Was is garbage time like that game before where game was 20 pts down and Lin was done, or was this just weird?

    Anyway, I might be 0 for 2 Sunday and then Mod will bench me. I’m convinced they are tanking now, not willing to go with the hot hand and plan for it during halftime with LAL only 5 down (something like that).

  • blubell

    Well, not a lot of people will care if Boozer gets benched but Jeremy on the other hand… Let’s see how the Lakers organization will handle this…

  • blubell

    Can’t blame a guys wanting job security. LOL

    I have already placed BS as #31 out of 30 NBA teams few weeks ago. Before the game, I said I would like to see what other stunts BS and Kobe would pull in this game. Here we are!!!! More are coming unless “chronos” takes Kobe and BS out of NBA. Otherwise, I would like JLin to go to any other teams except Lakers and R. Preferably to a team with a coach who truly believes him, uses his strengths and develop to be a better pg.

    He’d fight with Kobe and them Kobe would instigate another team mutiny.

  • SamC89

    Not bizarre if their true goal is to tank and then try to re-sign Lin to a cheaper contract.

  • sport

    Heard Monta Ellis doesn’t like Lin since GSW days so I doubt Lin will go there.

  • sport

    Yes one of the assistant coaches pretty much tackled Lin in a friendly way which was awesome!

  • deesee5

    I don’t know. I don’t think it matters if he is bench or not if its going to be that way. Price is a worser player than Bev though, and Lin is a whole lot better than Price. I really can’t see him playing more mins than Lin.

  • spiderman

    A. Martinez is not too bright. But he’s like those that don’t realize theyre not too bright.

  • deesee5

    And if he does play more mins than Lin, then this team is in absolute idgaf tank mode, let’s lose at all costs but help Kobe break scoring records.

  • deesee5

    But both Chandler’s do!

  • sport

    Doesn’t help Lin if Ellis is the one in charge of ball handling duties.

  • Dorothy

    They will not because they like Lin’s market value.

    That is why I don’t think he will be fired.

    LOL I can’t believe my exaggeration of BS only changing after 20 loses was almost correct! It was after 20 games with 15 losses before BS decides to make changes to lineup. But I have a feeling that change will be idiocy again.
