G25 LAL @ IND Game Thread+Chat

Will JLin play more than 20 min in the 2nd night of Back-to-Back game?

Will BScott rest Kobe more after breaking MJ’s record last night?

Whatever might happen, let’s hope Jeremy will stay confident to get his shooting rhythm quickly and play all out. Let’s go, JLin! Never give up and just give your best! Just play for the Audience of One

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    yes I AM FIRST! FINALLY! LOL

  • MoominFloren

    Linsanity ( bench version) Go Lin Go!

  • Brent Yen

    3D off the bench again!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    35 min plus per game and pg duty by Kobe will not last him especially there’s still a long way to go in this season.

  • Alaingrvis

    what makes you think if kobe was out for the season lin would start

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Because in that roster, only Lin can run the offense no matter what kind.

  • Still good video to see on Kobe embracing teammates after breaking MJ’s record, patted Lin on the back of the head as he did to Clarkson

    Hopefully Kobe will be more in sharing mood tonight

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol congrats. It happened to me once

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    99.9% by luck but I take it.

  • Let’s hope Lin will takeuback2Linsanityyears now :]

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I do believe it’s a matter of when just like Lin has said, the best is yet to come. That young man believes he is nowhere near his mark.

  • BuzzerBeater

    what does it feel like?

  • JW

    Not sure if already posted, but here’s Lin.
    https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/544617398670987264

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    My wife and kids always make fun of me how slow I can text with them, that’s how I feel when I got to be first once and might be my last. haha

  • Rick Johnson

    Without Kobe that team doesn’t have have anyone else other than Lin that can create offense for others. Swaggy can for himself.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Warrior being alone before battle.

  • MoominFloren

    How about sharing more by sit on the bench whole game Like Duncan 🙂

  • Arsenium12 .

    Jeremy Lin looks happy …

    ://twitter.com/Greg_Rappaport/status/544625727945994243

  • I believe Lin’s facilitating the 2nd unit has benefited Boozer the most.

    As Boozer was empowered by Lin, he continued getting extended minutes in the 4th quarter.
    When will the rest of Lakers coaching staff realize they need to play Lin to finish the game?

    1) Since making his off-the-bench debut four games ago, Carlos Boozer has been on a tear, averaging 15.8 points and 10.3 rebounds while shooting 56.9 percent. In Boozer’s 19 games as a starter, he was scoring 12.4 points on a 49.8 percent clip with 6.6 rebounds. Even Boozer’s minutes have gone up as a reserve from 26.3 per game to 27.3.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Agree, Swaggy only creates shot for himself.

  • The SmiLin’ Assassin is back!

    It’s a good sign before the game

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Rick Johnson

    Is that a player in front of Lin or a ball boy or something? Looks so young.

  • BuzzerBeater

    savor the moment!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I think they’re helpers

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Fancy anyone got the $13.88 Linsane doll from Walmart.

  • Rick Johnson

    Boozer for mid-range game, Davis for the rim and rim protection, Swaggy for 3 point shooting to spread the floor. That would be a good lineup.

    Then maybe Ellington just because he’s not Kobe killing the ball movement.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop. Prefer Linsanity the movie:-)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boozer has given out double doubles ever since. He’s absolutely Linsane on the court on the receiving end.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin brings out the best of his teammates.

  • MoominFloren

    Trainer? Always sees him doing some stretching with Lin

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Is it the wrong photo or wrong description?

  • Arsenium12 .

    Looks like an old arena in Indianapolis (actually only 1999) …

  • Sophie Paris

    My dad asked me few days ago to teach him how to text with his smartphone… xD

  • True
    And Kobe on the bench resting :]

  • I thought about it but way too pricey

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    ….and I still don’t have a smartphone yet? lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Is this your first time here today?

  • John Lee

    Kudos to you! It took me years to get my dad to press Black/color on the multi-function printer. He’d rather drive out to Xerox copy stuff.

  • LAJane

    Can I tell you how many times I’ve been back to the apple store (fortunately nearby) for quick tips on “how does this work?” Gettin’ there 😀

  • Arsenium12 .
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Did you get him the big number button home phone?

  • LAJane

    LOL!

  • LAJane

    Has that vibe, doesn’t it. Somehow this image affects me. He is, however (sigh), not alone ’cause of course there’s the photo-taker (maybe more than one even). Probably almost never alone. Price of fame. Too big a price for me…I think it’d drive me crazy.

  • Alaingrvis

    gets ready for the boring sucky lakers. great lin for 19 minutes so

  • Sophie Paris

    Indeed

  • LAJane

    You are a good soul, psalm234. Puts me to shame, ’cause I couldn’t bring myself to watch now that I’m so soured on Kobe. Especially since you mention he patted Jeremy on the head. Condescending egomaniac. How many Hail Mary’s to cleanse my bad attitude? 🙂

  • Bearness

    BS, please play Lin for more than 20 min. ty.

  • John Lee

    Oh, he’s cool with tech now. Always in front of PC after he learned how to play mahjong and watch games/highlights online (my brother set up the bookmarks).

    Where there’s a will, there’ll always be a way.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    So. Do you think opponents should also switch their starters with their bench? That will be fair competition

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol you must be an apple master now

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    When Lakers is blown up:-)

  • Bearness

    It looks like Lakers are well under way of doing that. =)

  • Chipdip

    10:2 already? wow

  • Alaingrvis

    every game

  • Kobe is tired and missed long 2s
    No playmaking is going on here as expected

  • Sophie Paris

    He’s a good learner

  • MoominFloren

    hahaha 12:2

  • Alaingrvis

    this is every game

  • BuzzerBeater

    AWFUL start!!!…excellent >:]

  • John Lee

    Bwahahahahahaha! Oh Karma, you…are…so beautiful…to me… Sing it!

  • MoominFloren

    yes…so predictable

  • JW

    announcers happy that Price was able to score. so rare

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I love it. Kobe ISO got stuffed like Thanksgiving turkey. He’s the PG or everything.

  • Byron inserted Boozer but it’s still 18-4 Pacers

  • JW

    and now they milking it with his replay

  • MoominFloren

    16:4 time to unleash Lin

  • cali7

    Seriously, for those casual fans who only see the end score, the starting line up change seems like the right choice. Anyone who actually watched games or followed the scores with when the “bench”comes in and out of the game would see the starters stink up the joint first quarter. It is straight up deceptive.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No Lin No win.

  • Alaingrvis

    what a stubborn coach

  • they actually were marveling on it :]

  • John Lee

    I smell some Rox stench.

  • Chipdip

    20:4… Jeremy don’t go in… don’t!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Now watch Scott play him 35+ min, riding Ronnie’s ~hot hand

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hidden ugly personal agenda.

  • Yascar

    18-4 now. What an embarrassment.

  • Alaingrvis

    16 point game lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The problem is when he becomes the leading scorer of the Lakers

  • Alaingrvis

    hahahahahah watson

  • Pacers will help make the case

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    + 2 freethrow

  • Lin’s about to check in? 5:24

  • JW

    Oh no, LAL taking out their top scorer for the game. Price.

  • Chipdip

    OK real Lakers are in now… 21-4…

  • cali7

    I think they are happy that someone scored.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Got blown out by one of the worst team in the East. That’s comforting for Lakers.
    Too bad. He signed a 4 years contract. Could be fired.

  • golfhacker

    Pacers announcers saying Pacers’ 1st quarter has been a struggle all year long – hahaha!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    One of the worst disaster; don’t have Lin to blame now.

  • Alaingrvis

    boy

  • MoominFloren

    hahahahaha……how about sit Lin for the 1Q and see how it goes 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Game over!!!!
    Don’t send in Lin!!!!!! please.

  • John Lee

    This game so bad ESPN refuses to put up boxscore link, for reals!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    pls sit Kobe.

  • Chipdip

    Sit Kobe down …sit him down!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    this is horrible bench can’t break 18 point game

  • Good D by Lin to prevent the easy layup by Stuckey

  • JW

    I thought they took him out during last change over.

  • JW

    BS still looks happy. “2nd unit playing bad too. good.”

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ever heard of it. 20 points behind in the 1st quarter.
    4 points for the Quarter.
    Fire that silly stupid SOB BS coach

  • Chipdip

    Good try Jeremy… keep going at them

  • Bearness

    Yep. Did it like twice already I think.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS still smiling.

  • Chipdip

    OK… no score from the real Lakers but Indiana slowed down their scoring a LOT.. only gained 3 pts since real Lakers are in.

  • occupatio

    just checked in. wow, what an embarassment

  • Lin’s 3 was a bit long.
    He needs the ball in his hands to get the shooting rhythm.

    Why can’t Kobe rest earlier?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Have you ever seen a coach worse than that watching his team get clobbered.
    “Give it to Kobe!”

  • MoominFloren

    what???

  • BuzzerBeater

    Tank Commander in chief is pleased with what he sees.

  • Alaingrvis

    so the effect of the starter is shown. you can’t have a deficit every game and over come it every dy. sure some times but not often. indiana although is losing has a good defense. they actually like last year struggle to score. which is funny that our starters gave then 18 points in 6 minutes

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Don’t save them, Lin.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes he was

  • occupatio

    byron will stick with this for 10+ games. haha, what a dope

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What a coach!!!!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m actually having fun.

  • Chipdip

    Kobe is shxt

  • Kobe took such a horrible shot

  • John Lee

    Trailing by 18 in 1Q, some defense!

  • MoominFloren

    What a joke!!!! Garbage starts from Q2??

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe never run back after misses.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sit Kobe down please

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is toxic.
    BS is crazy.
    That makes a good team.

  • Alaingrvis

    we are dealing with a 22 point game deficit in 1st quarter

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    NO let him have -22

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That must be a first in NBA

  • occupatio

    at this rate, lakers will have 16 pts for the whole game. keep the starters in please

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I want him off when Lin on.

  • John Lee

    Yay, another new record for KoBS!

  • JW

    wait for 2nd qtr when kobe sits.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    With Kobe in, there is absolutely no chance for the Lakers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What a dumb coach!!!!!

  • cali7

    Lakers breaking all kinds of bad records. Horrible coach

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    How long do you think the Lakers fan can put up with this BS coaCH?

  • John Lee

    Pacers 7 asts, Lakers 1.

  • When Lin handled the ball, the ball movement just flowed so much better!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    kOBE THE pg, rONNIE THE pg.
    tHEYT HAVE THE RIGHT KIND OF pg MENTALITY.

  • Chipdip

    how kobe sits? too late!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe sits.

  • cali7
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    bs,” Kobe still has a lot in his tank.”
    Keep tanking, BS.

  • John Lee

    I challenge you to come up with a more effective tanking duo!

  • Chipdip

    Tank Commander understand tanks best.

  • Brent Yen

    Just came back…what has happened?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Thank God!

  • Bearness

    Lakers down, by A LOT.

  • John Lee

    Bloodshed happened.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just check in. My wish come true. A blowup game even in first qtr.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The first team dug a 20 points big hole for the 2nd team top catch up.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s bad foul

  • roberlin

    Nice job getting the foul with .6 seconds left in the quarter, lol.

  • John Lee

    Pacers 34 pts in 1Q, now THAT shows how good Price is on defense.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    FYI, Kobe is -21. Tell you. BS won’t let it rest. He will send in Kobe to padd his stats soon.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin -2 price -17

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Woke up.. to Jeremy shooting FTs and Lakers 12 – Pacers – 34. I actually had to rub my eyes to see if I’m seeing right. Anyway it’s a scheduled loss

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    There’s something good from Harden he can relate it to. Getting to the free thrown line.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The problem is he’s leading the first team in scoring.

  • roberlin

    And the 4 points for the offense before Lin came in shows how horrible Price is on offense. Lol.

  • occupatio

    could this be the worst starting lineup in the league

  • BuzzerBeater

    Bench had to score 11 points to make the score not look so pathetic.
    Starters only contributed 4 points. Pitiful.

  • BobbyH

    Bench got pulled in earlier. Image if they were in at 9 min mark.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol 34 points in a quater to a team ranked 29th in ppg

  • roberlin

    I missed the early part of the game. Who scored the four points before Lin came in?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    So far bench did the damage control now make the game closer.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ronnie lead all scorers with 2 points.
    Great PG; best of the first team.
    It takes a coach of the year to let a first quarter stomp happen.

  • Alaingrvis

    please

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe 2 Ronnie 2.
    Ronnie leads the scoring with a better %

  • Yascar

    Don’t worry, I assure you Jeremy had very little to do with this bloodbath.

  • Bearness

    Best backcourt in NBA, baby!

  • roberlin

    Ronnie Price scored!!?!?!? Break out the champagne, lol.

  • BobbyH

    Let’s see when BS will put the elite starters back.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS actually watch it happening and what did he do?

  • Promo Sports World

    Stats for our hero?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Very soon. Kobe wants to score.

  • John Lee

    29 teams petitioning for BS to keep this lineup permanently.

  • roberlin

    The whole team seems off-kilter tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    0p 0a 20tovs

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I know.The Harvard boy with basketball (re-reading Hunger Games trilogy lately) won’t let it happen

  • Alaingrvis

    the lakers will have a hard time pacer play good defense and well coached

  • Alaingrvis

    good defense

  • roberlin

    Lin has 2 points.

  • roberlin

    Lin not shooting well so far.

  • Brent Yen

    Just kidding.

  • occupatio

    lakers starters, with kobe especially, cannot deal with teams that run. thats how the game got out of hand.

  • BuzzerBeater

    b2b’s just kill his shooting :/

  • Bearness

    This is some ugly basketball.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s the coach! What did he do in such a phenomenal quarter with his first team behind by 20 points in the first quarter.
    Dear Kobe, you’ve just passed air Jordan in scoring. You can rest peacefully for now.

  • Yascar

    Is Jeremy handling the ball?

  • Alaingrvis

    this will not happen. its a big hole. this isn’t the kings. pacer play good defense and missing is contagious

  • roberlin

    TO by Lin. Time-out Scott. Is he going to sit Lin and bring back Price?

  • Promo Sports World

    Lol I was like whoa

  • Alaingrvis

    the whole lakers shooting an amazing 14 percent

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin’s first to, BS calls time. SMH

  • 311

    He didn’t correct u on turnovers though, lol.

  • occupatio

    bench unit taking shots early instead of working for the best shot. not that they are ever good at that, but its more rushed bc they are trying to make up the deficit. also, indiana getting what they want on the other end

  • Alaingrvis

    okc will be a nightmare

  • Monking

    he’s playing pretty bad, as are most of the team.

  • John Lee

    He mixed up turnover for timeout.

  • Promo Sports World

    And if that’s true the pg will be blamed

  • 311

    Didn’t realize there was a game tonight. Seems like I should skip though. 🙁

  • LAJane

    Little christmas season present for himself.

  • occupatio

    its hard to play from behind. its easy to start forcing things. lin trying to do stuff, cant fault him for trying.

  • golfhacker

    Pacers announcer says Byron Scott has the Pacers on a roll!! Isn’t that the truth!

  • Sophie Paris

    Awful start Lakers

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What kind of game will get Byron Scott fired?; this game!

  • roberlin

    Game already coming near to garbage time.

  • LAJane

    Yup. Calm down and get to smooth working.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol

  • Promo Sports World

    Reading this board it sounds like the team and jeremy are shot….question: why does jlin struggle w/ b2b so much? like seriously

  • Alaingrvis

    lol this is wow

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lousy coaching!

  • BuzzerBeater

    It will be the first game in NBA history where a teams ends up with 300 points.

  • John Lee

    I love them honest announcers.

  • Promo Sports World

    BS was partying with kobe last night

  • BobbyH

    Nah, there is always excuse, like B2B.

  • BScott’s “defensive-minded” starters just started opening the floodgate for Pacers 34-15 lead
    And now he’s panicking trying to shuffle the lineup

  • Alaingrvis

    the whole team is off its like a virus it spread

  • LAJane

    V happy they’re saying it’s credit to Scott!

  • roberlin

    These are the Lakers we know and hate, lol.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe’s scoring record is too much of a distraction.

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers 13 percent fg percentage

  • Bearness

    Yeah, his shots are way off.

  • Promo Sports World

    Popping bottles in Minny last night

  • Bearness

    This is NBA, right?

  • LAJane

    Niiiiiice.

  • BobbyH

    The ultimate fall begins, starting tonight’s game.

  • Alaingrvis

    I’m sorry but im loving this

  • Alaingrvis

    dada da da da

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    3 assists, that’s why they’re losing.

  • LAJane

    Poor Kobe. The other team might break Wilt’s 100pts per game….;)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It has a lot to do with the coach.
    He should have called timeouts to slow down the disaster before his players recovered.
    The whole damn team was shocked.

    With BS as coach, the Lakers can go nowhere!

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ive always wondered this, Jeremy is young and in top shape. He really shouldnt be struggling so much on b2bs.
    IDK maybe he just doesnt sleep well on the plane, he needs to get a new pillow.

  • Alaingrvis

    assist lol if everyone miss what assist

  • Bearness

    Can’t get many assists when you shoot 4 for 30. LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    hahahaha LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    When the media gonna admit BS is a horrible coach?

  • Bearness

    Not this year.

  • Alaingrvis

    this will end in epic measures. we may score 50 pacers 125 lmao

  • CaliUSMC

    I hope lakers stay under 50pts. lol

  • BobbyH

    In the pregame show in TWC, the commenters kept boasting about how great Kobe initiates the offense as PG. Well, this game clearly proves it.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s hard to deny it!!!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    me two

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2 more weeks?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    First team 4 points.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    ditto

  • Bearness

    LOL, sorry I meant not this season.

  • occupatio

    so byron takes lin out after the turnover.

  • Sophie Paris

    It’s like watching Titanic sinking twice in a row xD

  • golfhacker

    Unfortunately, the final score won’t look as bad since the Pacers starters will only play one half.

  • occupatio

    its so pathetic how this team tries to win with jumpshots. thats you kobe

  • Alaingrvis

    because he didn’t save the titanic

  • Rick Johnson

    They need to throw Scott and his Princeton offense out the window.

  • roberlin

    Laker’s schedule coming up is brutal –

    v. OKC
    at Sacramento
    v. Golden State
    at Chicago
    at Dallas (second game of back to back)

    If Lin doesn’t play significant minutes, would love to see a big fat 0-5 record the next five games!

  • Alaingrvis

    as well as price

  • CaliUSMC

    a/s/l? jk

  • Alaingrvis

    lol i showed the next 12 don’t worry it continues

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    30 points behind a rotten team before the half.
    That’s how great this team is.
    Stay put! BSBSBSBSBSBS for the postgame interview.

    Lack of Focus Jeremy’s Lack of focus. It’s all his fault!

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe can’t guard Stuckey

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Told you, Kobe has no speed to play defense anymore.

  • Briiick

    As well as kotank.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What did Lakers do last night?
    Must have too good a time.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol this night has just begun

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    How stupid is BS? He’s still playing Kobe 35 min for this blown out game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m been waiting for a game like this!!!!!
    BS is exposed naked.

  • occupatio

    omg, is clarkson in the game?
    byron is such a joke. doesnt play him ever, then puts him in now

  • Bearness

    Lakers were overachieving (stealing a game from Spurs, managing to close out against Timberwolves). It’s going to go waaaaaaaaay downhill from here.

  • Alaingrvis

    i wonder what the lakers media is saying. why are the tweets

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Did Michael Jordan have a glorious game like this?

  • CaliUSMC

    Best game eVar

  • Kin Choi

    You put bad image in my head.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Garbage time!

  • I am The Jason

    Clearly the wrong Front Office fired their head coach. Sacramento firing their coach is a head scratcher. Lakers not firing Byron Scott is also a head scratcher.

  • Alaingrvis

    waaayyyyyyy

  • occupatio

    wes should not be allowed to dribble

  • knibb

    I switched on the game 30 seconds ago and … what the #$@% is going on??!!??

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson came in for price

  • occupatio

    anybody but jeremy

  • John Lee

    Brilliant!

  • BobbyH

    Like this?

  • Bearness

    Yep. Raising the white flag already.

  • CaliUSMC

    this is so epic… I love it.. franchise low baby!!!

  • Brent Yen

    WHere is Price?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS: It’s Jeremy’s fault. He should come in and be ready. Charmin!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    benched

  • JT

    go pacers, leave ASAP out of this train wreck Lin

  • Brent Yen

    LOL WHAT?!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I want to see him play now.

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly

  • Alaingrvis

    i don’t want lin helping the lakers at all right now I’m enjoying this

  • occupatio

    whats funny is that indiana’s offense is mostly like lakers starters: full of long 2s. difference is they executed better

  • Wow Lin and Swaggy actually got the best +/- at -9!

    Kobe is the worst at -34
    Pacers leading 58-20

  • Alaingrvis

    to think pacers had lost 8 in a row

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Pour it on. Pacers, you can make a season out of this game!

  • Brent Yen

    When you are up that much, every shots will be much easier to make.

  • golfhacker

    Byron Scott is what’s going on.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol 70 points before the half

  • occupatio

    LOL

  • CaliUSMC

    dang it…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Pacers hit the season high in scoring for the half.
    Lakers hit season low in scoring for the half, for the quarter and most likely for the game.

    Is this game on TV? If not, it should be.

  • John Lee

    Come on new Lakers record! Lowest points in single quarter!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    HAHAHAHAHAHA
    BS!

  • CaliUSMC

    why george hill not playing?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    half, game and season and decade

  • occupatio

    hrm, do i need to watch this? is lin even coming back?

    so friggin random. lets have the starters and add in never-seen-playing-time clarkson.

  • golfhacker

    It is on national TV, NBATV.

  • occupatio

    welcome back to planet earth

  • Rick Johnson

    Injured

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS sat there like a dumbbell.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He doesn’t have to as long as Kobe is on the floor.
    The all time 3rd leading scorer is honoured by the Pacers.

  • BobbyH

    Defense is what matters. Offenses will come. Well, according to BS.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He’s the dumbbell.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Im all for Lakers losing by an embarrassing deficit but only due to the starters lol
    I still root for the bench and hope Jeremy finds his shot and gets aggressive in whatever minutes Scott gives him.
    Lets go Jeremy.

  • Brent Yen

    It is true….but this is beyond exterme

  • 311

    Why didn’t Clarkson take the 3? He was wide open.

  • John Lee

    Dumbbell filing for defamation case.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Defense! Giving a record high in everything. BS!

  • BuzzerBeater

    you misspelled dumba$$

  • CaliUSMC

    ;D

  • rookie75094

    Wow what a disgusting display…. throws up on bs

  • roberlin

    I think BS will play Clarkson all 24 minutes in the second half, lol.

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes they need Prices touted defense to stop the Pacers run.

  • occupatio

    felt the gravitational pull of kobe

  • Briiick

    He had been benched for taking shots out Kome.

  • BobbyH

    We should already knew what he will say in post game interview. No energy, no effort, not looking for teammates, and it is not my fault.

  • 311

    lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    27 points for the half does not tell you how bad the players are.
    It tells you how bad the coach is.

  • Alaingrvis

    this is where this team fails. expecting the bench to make up a 20 point lead is ridiculous.

  • occupatio

    we are going to see this for 10+ games. refund pls

  • Wow 60-27 at the half.
    Not even half the points.

    Only 5 assists but 6 TOs. Lakers need a real PG!

  • BobbyH

    Nah, you forgot there are 5 tough games coming up.

  • Alaingrvis

    the thank the pacers wa one of the easier match ups

  • Scoreboard

  • Briiick

    I hope Kobe and Scott break another NBA record today to compliment last game’s stat padding breakthrough.

  • Brent Yen

    I feel great for some reason

  • rookie75094

    They have one sitting on the bench..m. f $$×÷ing bs.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Thank God.
    Almighty!
    How can the Buss family stand this.
    This is the last straw on their back.

    BS, pack up your stuff and go home.
    YOU are finished.
    U make the Lakers history.

  • occupatio

    except lin’s stats stink

  • Brent Yen

    Well relative to this whole game. I think it is ok…LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    are you ok psalm. psalm are you ok. psalm are you ok. are you ok …………

  • occupatio

    would be perfect game if lin could get some stats tonight

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is the Titanic! What don’t you expect?

  • Alaingrvis

    ha i was thinking the same

  • BScott is actually very clueless.
    He didn’t even recognize that the offense was flowing through Lin (even if he didn’t score at all!)

  • BobbyH

    It felt like you scored 30 points in a test and you felt very bad but the rest of classmate scored less than 20.

  • Brent Yen

    Not gonna happen. Not even asts if his teammates can not score.

  • Brent Yen

    exactly LOL

  • I’m okay 🙂
    BScott doesn’t look okay now :p

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m having fun is a very unusual atmosphere.
    It just occurs to me that the Lakers is making history again with the Kobe + BS combination challenging everyone.

  • occupatio

    just want some buckets.

  • Alaingrvis

    he will get a shot get at lest 8 ill be jubilated

  • 311

    Fastbreak points off coast to coasts like Boston game.

  • John Lee

    For a split second I read the gravitational “puke” of Kobe.

  • MoominFloren

    Stop checking the box score for a while and now turns to 27:60 ??!?

    #firebyronscott #starterstobench

  • Brent Yen

    Getting bucket is not his job LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    good

  • rookie75094

    No he is not very clueless… he is absolutely m $÷=f $!=% ING clueless

  • Alaingrvis

    whats the worse lost in laker history

  • Yascar

    Hear you bro. Stats like last night’s game would be great.

  • Chipdip

    they are working very hard at it and it shows!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Want it to be a blowup game but don’t expect to be from 1st qtr:-) What a shock to see when I finally checked about the last 6 seconds on first qtr:-)

  • occupatio

    or else what? he gets benched for clarkson?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s hard to beat that record.
    With one more game like this, BS is finished!!!!!! Guarantee. The phones are ringing in the locker room now.

  • CaliUSMC

    142-94 in March of 2014 against Clippers.

  • Brent Yen

    Well to be fair, those minutes were for Price to play anyway

  • Chipdip

    Lin only -9? wow… lowest… gotta trade Lin away!

  • Alaingrvis

    ha ohh we will past that 125- 56

  • occupatio

    byron has little leverage over lin at this pt. hes already taken away everything from lin.

    the ‘test’ is rigged for him to fail anyway

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I couldn’t help it.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Who did?

  • Brent Yen

    Oh yay, totally!

  • Alaingrvis

    predict final score

  • Alaingrvis

    125-59

  • occupatio

    arithmetic wasnt invented for numbers so low

  • Brent Yen

    130-73 the final score?

  • Yascar

    If the Lakers FO had any sort of integrity, this is exactly the kind of game that gets Byron Scott fired.

  • Alaingrvis

    73 from where lol

  • occupatio

    byron’s contract is quite substantial.

  • BuzzerBeater

    101 to 106 Lakers win, with Jeremy leading all scorers with 43pts after an explosive 2nd half.

  • Brent Yen

    THe ultimate garbage time…

  • cali7

    Can’t watch due to work but sounds like scott was truly desperate… even Clarkson got to play.

    Scott is worse than McHale as a coach and that is saying a lot. Wow

  • grover chang

    I wonder what they are saying in the locker room

  • Alaingrvis

    ha

  • MoominFloren

    can they pass 60 at this rate?

  • Brent Yen

    Charmin….of course

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The King’s coach get fired. You know. He hasn’t done half as much as BS. A poor soul.
    Lets’ tweet to Jeanie Buss, Mitch Kupchak to hire that coach for the Lakers to save this season.

  • Alaingrvis

    we said that weeks ago welcome to the club

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hmm TWC riding Jeremy’s marketability by using “But Jeremy Lin and the Lakers…” on that game plug for Lakers vs Thunder upcoming game.

  • Jeremiah

    Unfortunately, the Pacers will take their foot off the gas. It gets tiring to keep squeezing the Charmin.

  • occupatio

    lakers media is pretty sad. byron has mostly been shielded

  • KL

    Byron’s contract will give them 3 high draft picks in consecutive years just to coincide with Kobe’s retirement. They can fire Byron once they are happy with their draft picks. SMH.

  • I am The Jason

    I rather the Lakers get George Karl.

  • Brent Yen

    Charmin is soft….not gonna be tired squeezing it..

  • occupatio

    they arent trying to tank. that theory has to go to rest. byron is actually trying to win, which is why its so pathetic.

  • BuzzerBeater

    The Cavs-Hornets game started at the same time as this game.
    Hornets were down 23 to 0 in the 1stQ, I was thinking ‘ok at least its not only the Lakers getting embarrassed this badly’.
    They are now only down by 4. Lakers are on their own with this embarrassment.

  • Alaingrvis

    they lost 8 games before this i don’t think so. its like not eating for a week then a buffet appears.

  • JC

    I just checked the score right after I got home, I mean WOW how bad could this lakers team get!!? It seems like a nba team vs a bunch of street ballers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    His damage is magadose.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol no another game after scott is fired

  • Jeremiah

    Personally, I’d rather squeeze the Scott.

  • KL

    I agree that Byron is trying to win! It is pathetic. I am talking about the front office. Also, the front office being happy to tank, i.e. not firing Byron, is not the same as deliberately tanking. Subtle difference.

  • Chipdip

    With Kobe, Lakers is so slow… Indiana has huge speed advantage over the toilet paper team

  • MoominFloren

    Lakers starters

  • LW

    Scott’s starting rotation works like a charm!

  • cali7

    Well it was Btwn tanking and ineptitude or both but now I am assured of the latter

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s because of the coach. Their coach stop bleeding. Lakers coach did nothing.

  • Chipdip

    History in the making… BS specialty! Many more to come

  • occupatio

    buss is on a timeline. promised to step down if it keeps being bad.
    he doesnt have the patience to rebuild like philly. i dont think owners are trying to tank. they’d rather have a middling mediocre team showcasing kobe and acceptable TV ratings than a horrible record and draft picks.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The rotation that he would use for 10 more games before he gets himself assassinated by Laker fans.

  • MoominFloren

    Oops ….should be this x 5 times

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s time for Lakers to wake up and see the real problem.
    By the way, what’s it?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jim Buss has to step down after this game.
    There’s no save for him.
    Hope that he would take Kobe and Byrons Scott with him.

  • roberlin

    Lakers making a come-back. Only a 25 point lead now, lol.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kobe will shoot 30 plus times tonite

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron is trying to win a championship.
    The championship of WHAT @#$%^&@##$

  • roberlin

    I’m debating, is it even worth watching the rest of this game?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    NO. hE WOULD SHOOT 40 TO MAKE UP FOR THE FIRST HALF.

  • Alaingrvis

    yes…. enjoy

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BELIEVE ME. IT’S ONCE IN A LIFETIME.
    You will miss the fun of it!

  • David Kim

    The Lakers are playing the worst game I have ever seen an NBA team play.
    8:03pm – 15 Dec 14

    -Robin Lundberg

  • Alaingrvis

    lol this will happen again

  • LW

    Scott’s plan was to wish the starters keep the game close and let the bench win the game for him. But it looks like the starters couldn’t even fulfill that job. The Lakers need a 2nd bench to do the starters job!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No game in the next 3 nites so why not.

  • Jeremiah

    Don’t worry they can play even worse. They just don’t want to show off.

  • roberlin

    Why does Ronnie Price even bother shooting the ball?

  • CaliUSMC

    What in tarnation…. smh Kobe

  • Chipdip

    wow..Kobe 4 fouls… great!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Either one will help but with Scott out of the window, you could save the season.

  • Sophie Paris

    2 more please ^^

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin and Young only going to get 20mins this game? So lame..

  • Chipdip

    OK… I admit Kobe’s last few plays were pretty good.

  • Alaingrvis

    wow pacers are messing up the joy

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I think the Buss family would receive death threat …

  • JC

    Hope kobe fail out

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Break a leg!

  • LW

    Scott’s rotation works perfectly for tanking. He is a brilliant coach!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s natural when you’re up by 33 points you’re relax.

  • roberlin

    Great. Price hits the three. Now he’s going to play the rest of the game.

  • KL

    I thought Jim Buss had a 3 year timeline from Jeannie?

  • Chipdip

    Yes… and all the starters play the remaining minutes of the whole game. I am glad Jeremy and the 2nd unit has a good rest from a bk to bk game.

  • occupatio

    has lin even played this quarter?

  • Chipdip

    haha… Price shot the three and not passed to Kobe… like it!

  • Chipdip

    No.

  • roberlin

    The “starters” have played the entire quarter. No Boozer, no Lin, no Young

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Bad coaching.

  • MoominFloren

    Hope starters to redeem themselves??

  • occupatio

    i went away for like 5 min and … nothing happened.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I told you Kobe would get his average.

  • Chipdip

    Shooting 8 for 24 in other team will be yelled and benched by the coach… except LA Losers

  • roberlin

    They’ve cut into the lead, so BS is sticking with them. Stupid move, imo.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You know, Davis is a waste in the starters because they don’t have the PG to make him successful.

  • roberlin

    Because that unit will evevntually run out of steam and the deficit will grow again.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin should sit for the rest of the game.

  • occupatio

    tired of seeing kobe complain to refs

  • Alaingrvis

    and like that back to 30

  • Chipdip

    Yes ,,, BS thinks Lin is the reason they lose the game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes Love it

  • Chipdip

    Lakers defence like Charmin… sorry..I meant Kobe… typo

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The first team has done absolutely nothing except killing a quarter’s time.

  • MoominFloren

    OK…..a move to dig a even bigger hole? I hope he sits Lin for the rest of the game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Cill yourself Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe does give it his all

  • Alaingrvis

    its who he is

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Whatever you do BS please keep kobe in the game.

  • Brent Yen

    For the show.

  • roberlin

    He gives it his all in playing selfish basketball.

  • Brent Yen

    exactly…

  • Alaingrvis

    doubt it he is competitive to a fault

  • takemeback2reaganyears
  • occupatio

    now it makes more sense how ed davis got buried in memphis. without someone to feed him, not much to show.

  • Brent Yen

    If that’s true, then he is just not capable anymore

  • Alaingrvis

    well…..

  • Briiick

    Scott is such an understanding coach. He knows Kobe had not done well with less than 30% FG in the first half, so he keeps playing Kobe in the 2nd half to help repair his stats.

  • Brent Yen

    He rolls. And that is about it

  • occupatio

    and blocks. but cant stay out of foul trouble

  • Briiick

    Stat repairing.

  • roberlin

    He just needs a coach who sees in him what we all see.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The first team made up by 2 points for the quarter
    Big deal.

    Hire anyone. This is the coach that they should be fired on the spot.
    Mike Brown did less than that and got fired.
    MDA has done much better with a few of great games.
    Byron Scott is exactly what Scott tissue is good for but not even worth they money he gets paid.

  • CaliUSMC

    SHOOT LIN!@!@#@

  • occupatio

    lin expending a lot of energy on D. too bad he never sees the ball

  • occupatio

    i wish he took that shot on the FT line.

  • Sophie Paris

    Swaggy man

  • CaliUSMC

    STEP BACK FADE AWAY

  • occupatio

    he can only do that when he drives with the right hand. but not when going left.

  • occupatio

    when he drives left, he doesnt do step back but pivots instead.

  • CaliUSMC

    YES HE CAN PIVOT AND STEPBACK FADE

  • roberlin

    only a 25 point lead now, lol.

  • occupatio

    i really cant stand nick young. just mini kobe

  • 311

    I saw him do it just a couple games ago.

  • Brent Yen

    HIgher %age I think..

  • occupatio

    nick young’s D is horrid. he doesnt even get into a defensive stance

  • Chipdip

    play Clarson please

  • CaliUSMC

    this isnt good…

  • Brent Yen

    Haha no one is box ppl out except Lin..

  • CaliUSMC

    byron scott = kim jong un

  • occupatio

    against the pacers bigs

  • occupatio

    hard to root for this team. they dont play the right way.

  • Brent Yen

    Hahahaha so ridiculous. No wonder they can not secure any rebound

  • Alaingrvis

    the bench is slow iso today as well

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin is out.. wow…

  • Brent Yen

    stat padding time…

  • Rick Johnson

    Garbage time

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Evil and stupid are not comparable.

  • golfhacker

    What’s the point of keeping him in at this point?

  • CaliUSMC

    he needs more mins.. i don’t care

  • Alaingrvis

    you have a 20 point deficit in the first quarter the starters was crap. which spilled to the bench

  • LAJane

    Scott squirmin’ around like a worm on a hot brick. Sorta glad J’s out. Why should he exhaust himself running around on D for no productive effect. His shooting isn’t hot tonight, so give him a rest. Though I know he’d rather play than sit….

  • occupatio

    just turned off TV.

    its like i dont expect this team to win many games, but at least make it entertaining. but its not even close.
    buss family and byron put out a terrible product.

  • Alaingrvis

    change the channel its over

  • roberlin

    nah, no point during garbage time.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • IsabeliJane*17

    The gifts are for?

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin always does great in garbage time. He needs them stats man..

  • grover chang

    You mean they are both evil and stupid?

  • Alaingrvis

    lin needs to run away from this team the first chance he gets

  • Sophie Paris

    Kidzzzz

  • CaliUSMC

    Oh well SA vs Por should be fun.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL we said that last yr…

  • Alaingrvis

    sad aint it

  • Brent Yen

    LOL not any more….life goes on….

  • occupatio

    ive heard of coaches trying out lineup changes over a few games but never over 10-15 games. byron considers wasting a quarter of the season as a reasonable period to do a experiment. its just unreal how incapable of adapting this fool is.

  • roberlin

    Unfortunately, I don’t think this is going to convince Byron that there’s a problem with the starting line-up.

  • roberlin

    I think he’s going to keep Price as the starter, no matter what other changes he makes with the line-up.

  • Alaingrvis

    ha

  • occupatio

    not just the lineups — everything. incapable of adapting.

  • Brent Yen

    Clarkson’s handle is….not shaky….but weird..

  • CaliUSMC

    Whats the possibility of Lin getting traded during the season?

  • Alaingrvis

    a prayer

  • Brent Yen

    Low unless for unloading a contract

  • Briiick

    As long as Kobe gets the most points of his team, Lakers are doing just fine !

  • David Kim

    I am not that suprised about todays game.
    This game shows how bad Scott ‘s system is.

  • occupatio

    lin would be a half-season rental. in most cases, theres just no reason to give up any assets to get such a short rental, esp an expensive one.

  • LAJane

    Trade for who? Didn’t two guys just opt for China rather than hop on this sinking ship?

  • Alaingrvis
  • CaliUSMC

    I haven’t watched any of the past few games… Watching this one is so depressing..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin+Davis+Nash and 1st round for Camela.

  • occupatio

    lin getting all happy when this team wins without him — that’s how a chump behaves. giving all your heart and effort to a person or organization that doesnt value you at all. i cant say i find it a redeeming quality.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boozer got his double double in the last seconds.
    Boozer,” dinner is on me, Clarkson for missing the shot.”

  • Kin Choi

    Still can’t find a home, still can’t find a team that actually wants him.

  • Alaingrvis
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    James Worthy: …..Lakers had bad start.

  • Alaingrvis

    they have a bad start every game

  • CaliUSMC

    Lakers beat the Spurs because of no Leonard. All Lakers wins = fluke!!!

  • LAJane

    So does this mean there’ll be another explosion of trade talk? Makes me think of the “Men In Black” aliens all suddenly trying to scurry off a doomed earth. Get out while you caaaannn…..

  • Alaingrvis

    i have heard non seem unlikely

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The coach let it happen.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Only positive thing about this game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He didn’t since he had no idea what to do.

  • Brent Yen

    HAHAHAHA……very satisfied…

  • LAJane

    shoot…they only lost by 19. Even that looks better than it really was.

  • CaliUSMC

    No Game of Thrones.. No Walking Dead… Lakers suck…. I need to find a new hobby.

  • GoodDayLA

    Didn’t see game, Real talk now, did Lin suck? Or box score just look bad. I can see entire team suck, but you know what I’m asking here. Did Lin suck or a kobe Scott sabotage?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    There’s Bryant Scott’s post game interview.

  • Alaingrvis

    starter had a 20 point deficit before the bench came in

  • GoodDayLA

    Sure hope not

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin is expected to be suck with this system. Any good game from Lin would be a gift for fans.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin always suck……. #HatersGonnaHate!

  • CJSHYY

    So weird why they started to use Clarkson today? Maybe they are going to trade Lin soon… bc his playing time is getting shorter & shorter in the past 2 games.

  • GoodDayLA

    If Lin is traded it will be the day of the deadline to a team out of the playoff race. I can explanation my logic but hopefully u see what I am saying

  • Alaingrvis

    i have to say watching thiss for 60 or so game will be impossible for me. I’m close to throwing in the flag and waiting for next year

  • Brent Yen

    That is a good thing I guess

  • BobbyH

    Exactly. This stupid Princeton system. Just bring the ball up and pass to the big and that’s it.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is not gonna like this for everygame.

  • John Lee

    Wu kong was way ahead of you…sigh…

  • GoodDayLA

    -20 when Lin came in lol?

  • roberlin

    When is the Lakers media going to stop giving the benefit of the doubt to BS? Time to start ripping him to shreds.

  • Brent Yen

    They are not giving the benefit of the doubt. They are just protecting him….

  • GoodDayLA

    Will not happen. U will upset yourself hoping for that

  • Alaingrvis

    does it matter scott will keep this lineup. every game there seem to be less and less trust put in lin. this is every game. if we do win its kobe. its don’t matter this year it seems. least lin has a chance to go for 30 on rox. with this pace and low playing time he struggle getting 20

  • GoodDayLA

    Smart woman

  • Briiick

    I hope so. Clarkson was sent to D-league because he took some Kobe’s shots; and Lin has been sent to the bench for the same reason. A PG should not take more than 5 shots beside Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    mda didn’t get it

  • roberlin

    MDA didn’t get criticized by the LA media? Are you sure about that?

  • Alaingrvis

    price was-17 i think 5-22

  • orLinaryjoe

    Only good thing was I could not watch the game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin plays backup and he plays with: Kobe, Young, Boozer, Sacre and Ellington all of whom never passed the ball back to him. They all shoot or dribble then shoot once had the ball in their hands. Lin’s stat is over and this is 10x worse than Houston.

  • Alaingrvis

    no i said he wasn’t given the benefit of the doubt

  • Linja

    Hi, y’all, if they are to trade Lin, do they have to wait till Feb, 2015? Just wondering.

  • Briiick

    Lakers are Kobe’s for two seasons.

  • roberlin

    i see. Then, why is BS getting the benefit of the doubt from the media? He doesn’t deserve it.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Kobe protection. MDA and Kobe clashed.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk

  • Alaingrvis

    he is friends with magic and kobe

  • Brent Yen

    No….they have to do it B4 that…like…NOW!

  • Brent Yen

    No it does not. BUt I am only watching LIn anyway.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Under NBA rules, Dec. 15 is the first day that players who signed new contracts over the summer can be traded. With just about every player now eligible to be dealt, the trade season has begun. Teams have until Feb. 19 to make deals.

  • GoodDayLA

    Kobe can tell team they are like charmin again. I’m glad Lin contract over aft this. Choose wisely my friend. If he picks another Houston, I will not be able to watch Moore of this crap.

  • CJSHYY

    What else did he say?

  • Alaingrvis

    its hard to watch only lin

  • Brent Yen

    Lin was eligible after the 1st day of the season.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin for stepehsen !

  • Alaingrvis

    and to think lin was plying great before he got benched

  • orLinaryjoe

    Rather he goes to a better fit team and play off the bench with less salary. Dream. Spurs or my home team, Warriors.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes he can be traded now.

  • Alaingrvis

    hornets are slow as well

  • Rick Johnson

    Oh great we get to watch the defensive stopper Price stop Westbrook Friday.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin for a Janitor seems like a good idea at this point….LOL just kidding. Not offense to Janitors either.

  • Brent Yen

    Believe it or not, I am getting good at it game by game

  • GoodDayLA

    Lol

  • GoodDayLA

    Ed weiland for lakers coach!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    12 straight games of good to great teams this will only get worse

  • Linja

    Coolio, maybe like PV said , Lin gets traded away for couple years; then after BS is gone, LA would bring him back, ’cause Li is good for Lakers in the long run.

  • JoeTeam

    Have work available on you’re computer. Easy as pie.

  • Yascar

    I wanna know what the brilliant coach has to say. So I can get some more laughs in. I will even tolerate his smirky face for 3 whole minutes.

  • JoeTeam

    Totallymissed the game. Glad I did. Any redeeming action? Always Monday night football.

  • roberlin

    none.

  • Brent Yen
  • Yascar

    That’s what hurts the most about this abomination. Thankfully, our guy seems to have nine lives. He’s used up about 7 now though…

  • JoeTeam

    Bummer. I’m back to believing in tanking agenda. Nobody is that bad a coach.

  • JoeTeam

    Something weird withthisteam, not just jlin. But true, Lin can separate himself from the team negatives. He’s got to get usedto coming in with 8 – 15 puts down.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    More interested to watch Sydney terror-seige tragedy on live than Lakers game since I watched few seconds on Lakers on end 1 qtr and beginning 2nd qtr. Glad that I didn’t miss any great action:-)

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin is as good as Steve Nash. Better. More dominant than curry when the alpha guard. But he’s just going to be an NBA scrub now ….. Sigh. Life ain’t fair man

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin prediction summer: Spurs, Warriors, Dallas, Toronto, Sacramento, Portland. He will be the bench scrub but hopefully a rotational bench scrub. The Asian Matt bonner….sigh….

  • Briiick

    After passing Jordan in scoring, his new goal is passing another guy in scoring, and his teammates felt that tonight and they gave up any hope.

  • CJSHYY

    Finally had his post game interview today?! Lose game?! smh!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s as good as anyone opinion, for now no one knows for sure the future of JLin. I for one hope he got traded. BS is sooooo bad.

  • GoodDayLA

    That’s not on kobe, that’s on the young gullible team. Kobe is Kobe.

  • DJSlik

    not the spurs…patty mills and cory joseph would be ahead of him even if parker is out. i like dallas and sac better.

  • Briiick

    Kobe has been the worst player in his team this season who consistently nets team bottom +/-, hasn’t he ?

  • Linja

    And, I totally agree with your user name !!

  • DJSlik

    0-6….has nothing to do with the deficit the starters leave you with. everyone sucked on the lakers, lin included.

  • Briiick

    Any team without a “cornerstone” SG would be good for Lin !

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s time for a really question about the motive of Nash’s injury for the entire season. He was fine to play in the preseason. Even if he’s hurt, there’s no reason to declare he’s done for the next 7 months. IMO, I believe because of the Bryant Scott’s bull$heet and he wanted to be no part of it. Nash even refused to answer to BS’s message. What’s your takes?

  • Briiick

    You are really close.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    to?

  • Briiick

    Nash obviously looked down to Scott for reasons that have become apparent now.

  • MoominFloren

    Good!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I’m looking back before the season even started, Kobe and Scott very much used Lin to make Nash feeling uncomfortable.

  • rookie75094

    here comes the DNP-CD…. Jlin please stay healthy and play for Dallas next year

  • Yascar

    That’s what I think 100%. Nash is a smarter man than we all thought. After a few preseason games, he knew he wasn’t going to get the ball in his hands and he bailed. Take the money and run. And he gets sympathy for not being able to play out his final season due to injury. Best scenario for him, given the hellish options.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It would be very interesting when the Lakers trade Nash and he starts to play.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nash is out for the season due to “injury” BUT hasn’t declared retirement. If he’s traded we might see him back on the court if the situation is right.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin is known best of PnR, spacing and fast pace, why BS does not allow it?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Because he is showing-off by trying to make his “coaching” look complicated, which is failing real bad, when all the time it has always been made for Kobe to get his shots.

    Because he is trying to show-off that his team can survive without a real point guard.

    Because he hates PnR with a passion because it doesn’t show off Kobe’s skills (accurately,lack thereof) much.

  • MoominFloren

    It will be GRREEEAAAAT if both Nash & Lin get traded to the same team and start playing together.

  • CJSHYY
  • JW

    that is a very subtle dig at BS not knowing how to use the players the right way

  • winner

    Just hang in there, Jeremy. You’ll always bounce back. Is too bad that BS doesn’t let Davis play with you. 🙁

  • MoominFloren

    Huh? What did they do?

  • roberlin

    exactly.

  • Yascar

    Glad he still has his confidence.

  • Rick Johnson
  • Briiick

    I can feel that Kobe/Scott are turning more and more poisonous for ticket sale. Just imagine who is going to buy a seasonal ticket for the next season with Kobe trying to break another scoring record with 33% FG.

  • JoeTeam

    Common sense!

  • sws94

    Is it possible for Lin to get his PPG up and assists? He didn’t have a good game but even when he has good games Byron doesn’t seem to be keen on maximizing his minutes.

  • Rick Johnson

    Maybe for TV ratings too. Have you seen the Time Warner add for the OKC game? “The Oklahoma Thunder are back at full strength. But Jeremy Lin and the LA Lakers have plans for a surge of their own” Then some Lin highlights.

    Couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson
  • blubell

    So Spurs need a PG, eh? 🙂

  • JoeTeam
  • David Kim

    Lin??

  • Rick Johnson

    No Jabari Parker. Lin to Bucks?

  • JoeTeam

    Somebody in marketing has to send bsc the Memo.

  • JoeTeam

    Good read.

  • blubell

    Oh, that Parker. nm lol.

  • Promo Sports World

    Everyone real question. If this is Jeremy’s season will he get a call to be a backup pg next year?

  • SamC89

    Very low, as it’s entirely possible they the front office wants to devalue him so they can re-sign him for cheap.

  • blubell

    Not sure if this was already posted but nice vid and music.
    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/544687847576313856

  • Rick Johnson

    George Karl and Jeremy Lin to the Sacramento Kings? JLin will be closer to home, play with Cousins?

  • khomphuong2

    Jeremy Lin was featured on DiscoverLA.com .

  • Promo Sports World

    Karl not a good fit with Cousins but you never know

  • blubell

    Was this ever corrected?

  • Je Ballew

    Exchange the bench for the starting line up. Get rid of BS and Kobe, get a legit coach and center and the problems would be solved.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Briiick

    Agreed 100%. FO made a big mistake that they couldn’t even trade Kobe without his agreement.

  • khomphuong2

    This mathfew is Lin hater. He hates Lin like Lin killed his whole family .

  • Promo Sports World

    What a downer this all is….didn’t expect this at all. I really thought 16 and 7 easy

  • blubell

    Hmmm.. I don’t see him…

  • MoominFloren

    I love Robin…..one of the few journalists who dare to speak the truth

  • BobbyH

    Do you guys feel like Lin’s shooting has been off since demoted to bench, except that Spurs game?

  • deesee5

    I pray he’s a good fit.

  • BuzzerBeater

    nope, it was off before that. Remember the WAS game he went 0 for 10 and vs TOR he was 3 for 11.

  • MoominFloren

    Karl is not BS. Any reasonable coach will come up with the game plan based on players’ strengths. It may take times but will get it eventually.

  • deesee5

    A downer it is. I didn’t see the game. As a matter of fact I don’t even have any motivation to watch these games anymore. Watching a losing team and Lin not playing that well is no fun. I just come around here, look at box score, and check out PFV’s analysis nowadays.

  • jolno

    It seems that BS is determined to keep Lin’s minutes below Price’s. Guess BS needs to keep that pecking order intact to show Price is still the indisputable starter lol. As for me, I am not surprised one bit by BS’s newest antics because I think BS is trying to ruin Lin’s next contract to help out his bros to get this “ridiculous” contract instead of Lin.

  • deesee5

    I don’t really know who that guy is, but reading that tweet tells me he has a point.

  • Candy
  • blubell

    Thanks!

  • MoominFloren

    Either they want Lin to boost the ratings or they want to associate Lin with an expected lost. So many hidden agendas in this organization, who knows?

  • deesee5

    Daaaaaam y’all catch that Milwakee buzzer beater!? Lol!!

  • deesee5

    It’s on and off to me

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t RT or Click for this article. Not a good one for Lin. smh!

  • What’s surprising was Byron completely didn’t trust Lin to facilitate if he didn’t score much.

    Coaches were panicking but they just plugged in players who can score enough next to Kobe.
    This BScott system is unbearable to watch.

    I hope Lin will figure out ways to score more in his limited in the next game.
    It’s a very tough time for Lin fans indeed

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That’s right, coach undermine.

  • sport

    I already did, you should too! I’m glad I don’t waste time watching Lakers. So sick and tired of the rigged NBA, if by next season Lin is still marginalized with his new contract, I’m done with the NBA for good. After MJ retired, Lin was the only one who made NBA exciting again yet they don’t want to see him succeed due to his race. I won’t watch any more Lakers game until Lin is on his new team that’s that.

  • sport

    That’s exactly the problem Lin isn’t consistent with his shooting and it doesn’t help with him getting less minutes from the bench and marginalized again! It’s been he same old crap for the past 3 years! Enough is enough!

  • Rick Johnson

    This reminds me of a horror slasher movie:

    https://twitter.com/LakerGirls/status/544716255576342528

  • blubell

    Another missing stat?

  • blubell

    A sinister smile?

  • Rick Johnson
  • sport

    To be honest when is the earliest they can trade Lin? I can’t stand watching him go through this horrible offense for an entire season!! I won’t watch if he needs to stay for entire season!

  • Rick Johnson

    Today 12/15

  • blubell

    Good job fighting off the haters and defending Jeremy, Robin.

  • blubell

    Tick Tock.

  • Pete Roces

    End of road for Lin. I really think it will be very hard for his career to prosper, there is a concensus among NBA teams that Lin is just a bench player, no defense, turn over prone. All these negativity starts in Houston and now it has been imprinted, a very very sad ending for Jeremy Lin’s NBA career. Only one man can resurrect his career, MDA, no one else.

  • sport

    I agree! MDA is the only one who can utilize Lin properly and less him play his game!!

  • sport

    Seriously hope a desperate Eastern team in need of a PG trades for Lin!

  • Yascar

    That actually isn’t true though. Everybody has off nights , its just that some people are given more minutes to make up for it. Harden, Kobe, CP3, even Lebron have started games at 0-5 or more but are given the opportunity to get into rhythm. I’m not saying Lin is blameless when he’s inconsistent or that he’s elite right now. But I do think even the elites are not as consistent as that stats show at the end of the games.

  • Brent Yen

    That is NOT a problem. Only his minutes is

  • Brent Yen

    Never underestimate Lin! LOL

  • unfortunately, the hard truth is Lin can’t play his best with ball-dominant SGs.
    He’s getting better playing off-the-ball but we can never have Linsanity with Lin playing as a sidekick. (Spurs 38pts, Phi 34 pts 9 3pts were done in HOU w/o Harden)

    And it’s okay. Nash can’t play well next to Kobe either.

    As for MDA, I have to agree. There is a special connection between Lin and MDA. And they need each other to make them look good. After the series of coaches (Woodson, McHale BScott) not 100% in on Lin, coaches faith in Lin is #1 priority for Lin’s NBA career. Carlisle and Karl would be next in the short list if MDA doesn’t get a NBA HC job next season.

  • Yascar

    Agree with everything except when you say its the end of the road. Jeremy has been written off many times before, but he’s still here. Besides, I can guarantee you Jeremy’s career will not end with basketball. The kid’s too inspirational and too big for that. So maybe its not the way we want it to happen, but I tend to believe that, basketball or not, the best is yet to come.

  • Brent Yen

    I can guarantee you his basketball will not end like this game either.

  • Briiick

    There are only two teams in NBA today still play around their “cornerstone” SGs, and Lin unfortunately has to play for both teams during his short 3 year contract. I think Lin is a top PG in today’s NBA and will excel in any other normal team.

  • Hm, is that Kobe beef?

  • Brent Yen

    Com’on guys/gals. Just another bad game with low minutes with a bad team. Lin is good. Just not treated well.

  • jolno

    On the bright side, Lin is finally allowed to play without Kobe after he was demoted to the bench. Lin had a total plus/minus of -168 as a starter playing strictly with Kobe. That averages to -8.4 per game. After the benching, Lin had a total plus/minus of +16 which averages to +3.2 per game.

    On the other hand, Kobe had an average +/- of -9.2 per game with Lin as starter. So BS is trying to make Kobe look better by benching Lin. The end result? Kobe averages the same +/- of -9.2 per game regardless of the starting lineup LOL. Hmm, there is this gigantic elephant in the room but no one in LA dares to point that out.

  • Pete Roces

    I hope so, but I’m not optimistic at this point. As Lin’s fans its so frustrating to see all of this, I am sure he will still bounce back.

  • Briiick

    I suspect today’s Lakers are out of the control of the FO. The FO could have told him that you could pad whatever you wanted but there would not be another contract after next season. So you saw the trash talk, the WOJ’s tweet about Lin…

  • grover chang

    Thank you. My new favorite Lin video. We do easily forget how much Lin can do. Hard to believe after a night like this that linsanity was created by the same player just about three years ago, those rocket fast breaks and pin point pass were just a year ago. The dagger threes were just a month ago and he was shredding the defending champions forcing pop to call timeout just two games ago. Linsanity still lives in the same person, it only needs to be unleashed.

  • 100% true.

    Lin is always good but had the unfortunate events of playing with super ball-dominant SGs.
    He’ll be fine sooner or later. He always rises above these challenges.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL, he gets it….he will be fine

  • Yascar

    I would say yes. And back up is better than nothing.

  • livyrlife

    If Jeremy continues to shoot poorly, can’t adjust to b2b game so doesn’t have fresh legs, plays very limited minutes and can’t find his rhythm, at the rate he is going, he probably ends up with the worst FG%. Worst case scenario, I use the last 5 games average to extrapolate the remaining games, Jeremy may end the season with 33.33% FG%.

  • sport

    Except no one cares about +/- only how many points the star scores! Lin’s getting less than 20 minutes as a bench player compared to Price who had 20+ minutes as a bench player taking away Lin’s minutes as a starter! Now that Lin’s benched he doesn’t get the same minutes but less than that! All this bias and not to mention horrible offense to cater to the “star/stars” to succeed over everyone else in Kobe just like in Knicks with Melo or Rockets with Harden is sickening!

  • sport

    No Lin played for 3 of them! He got kicked off of Knicks for Melo, marginalized for Harden in Rockets even though he was the better facilitator and efficient scorer, and now with Kobe the old timer given more minutes 35 while everyone only gets 25 minutes.

  • sport

    We keep saying that but it’s been 3 years with the same crap and treatment due to racism and tailoring to the ball hog SGs!

  • GoodDayLA

    What tweet?

  • Spot

    Jeremy and his agent must stop to choose teams just for marketing reasons.

    Anyway, we’ll see what will happen…

  • Briiick

    Said Lin won’t be a Laker next season. But who wants to be a Laker this or next season ? LOL

  • deesee5

    That’s true, but to me elite players take over. I haven’t seen enough of that from Lin imo.

  • GoodDayLA

    Oh haha I think we all know that.

  • deesee5

    Good. I don’t want him to be a laker! Lol

  • jolno

    Well, it is true that Lin can not seem to escape from the politics of NBA no matter what. However, I believe his time in New York and Houston helps him become less affected emotionally by the discrimination he is facing now in LA. That is not to say he won’t be affected at all. Lin is still a human being just like the rest of us, so games like tonight are expected. Nevertheless, I choose to take on a positive view towards this because being negative and angry is not good for your health.

  • Briiick

    Melo was jealous, but Lin could still play a large part of his game, unlike with these “cornerstone” SGs. In fact, the age of SGs has passed. Teams are trying to copy Spurs and give their largest contracts at the PG + a BIG.

  • JT

    here’s a question…if Lin get DNCP, do you think he will finally ask for a trade? Or just stay silent….

  • Brent Yen

    Probably something in between

  • Alaingrvis

    sometime jeremy has to stop blaming himself for stuf its kind good he does but really what did he do to lose his job as a starter. he lead the knick to the playoffs and the rockets as a starter. so what are the chances its his defense that cost the lakers to suck. also he plays very little minutes 10 plus spirts. as a back up he isn’t the same. he is at his best as a starter. also what did scot expect. the starter was playing terrible so instead of adding offense quick he waited till normal subbing time to put in lin . he is often the last guy off the bench. another thing when the lakers made a run scot waited for the pacer to get it back to 30 to put the bench in. should of put them in as soon as it got to 20 or 19. my point is lin is too cocky. he can’t save this team especially when he is rarely given the chance.

  • GoodDayLA

    I would lmao

  • GoodDayLA

    Lol it would. Both go to kings! Or nets!

  • GoodDayLA

    I hate Kobes game. Just saying young guys cant expect him to stop being a tyrant

  • GoodDayLA

    Mda to king? Lin and Nash traded?

  • JoeTeam

    Follow the money … it’s the former. NBA owners are minting money.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    That would be fun. I could buy tix and drive up bcuz GSW tix are outta sight.

  • BuzzerBeater

    you mean DNP-CD? because that is not even possibility!
    I dont think Jeremy would ever demand a trade no matter the situation.

  • CJSHYY

    How come this is so short?

  • GoodDayLA

    Imagine if Lin got drafted by the lakers? He’d be out of the league today lol. He’s been pretty lucky even with all this current crap

  • Alaingrvis

    its one year haif of it is close to over

  • JT

    they wouldn’t draft him becuz if Lakers drafted him then that means they liked him enough to use a pick on him.

  • JoeTeam

    ouch!

    Take heart. This week, the following Gs played v poorly as to efficiency:

    Danny Green
    Cory Joseph
    Gerald Green
    Lillard 2 games ago 7 for 22
    Teague
    Wade last night 7 for 18
    IT on the 14th 2 for 9
    Bledsoe last 2 games low output
    JJ Barea
    Kyrie Irving

  • JoeTeam

    see above. This week bad week for guards. Esp SAS with Joseph and Danny Green off the mark.

  • CJSHYY

    It really makes no sense to me if Lakers really wants to trade Lin then why no show case for him at all? His stats looks bad now I doubt any team will pay for his high salary w low stats?!

    If they just want to sign him cheap so cut his playing time and so on…What makes Lakers so sure Lin will stay in Lakers after all the bad treatment from them?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Frankly speaking, this is a game that Jeremy ought to be ashamed of himself. Boozer was benched and he fought hard to get his double double. Jeremy just wasn’t himself. Not ready to play but fool around with his poor shooting and concentration. Don’t you thinnk U R glorifying God by what U did?

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly

  • JoeTeam

    ouch!

  • Brent Yen

    Why..he gave his best effort…there is NOTHING to be ashamed of…

  • PPP

    Woah. Relax and take care of your BP or you will regret.

  • livyrlife

    I tried not to look at Jeremy’s situation as a huge fan who takes a selfish standpoint. Objectively, Jeremy isn’t doing well despite all the whining and complaints by his fans(me included) if you equate him to another other employee in the regular job. Of course Jeremy is playing in the NBA so it might not be fair to make the comparison.

    I spoke to a friend who is very talented but she has always been not put in a situation to succeed due to office politics, etc. So she hops from one company to another. She doesnt complain much but I know she prides herself to be excellent and above the rest yet she refused to adjust. Very visibly she’s stressed out..I spent 5 days with her and some other friends on a short missionary trip. Did some soul searching and goodness, that’s the time when Jeremy got his benching and started all the bad games… 🙁

  • Brent Yen

    LOL…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    How many draft picks that Lakers have given up and let it rot.

  • leeda harun

    Maybe the FO afraid that other team s will offer him a good contract.
    .

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It doesn’t make sense. A player is only worth something when he plays well and he’s on a contract.
    Right now, I haven’t seen any of those. At present, there are many teams who would sign Jeremy at veterans’ minimum.

  • JoeTeam

    I know what you mean. It means the world to have supportive people close to you. And, if you have a way to make money or do your sports with supportive successful people, it means a world of difference. Warren Buffet said in a book 20 yrs ago that you only make a few investment decisions that change your life.

    Jeremy is riding a winner in his career, but his company now is a losing one. Due to CBA, he can’t get off. Ah well. He’s set for life, and he can be a team co-owner someday easily given his all-around smarts, parent’s geography, and good guy.

    We’re just in line again for this Disney ride … like going to Radiator Springs. A thrill when you are on, and then you debate getting back in line and you do, and it’s boring and then it’s … well, just FANTASTIC!

    Tiger dad you … get out the switch and hit the kid jk. I’m not one for spoiling people esp when getting parts moving on a team. But hey, this team has only one part hammering and everybody else is just trying not to knock the piston out of whack. It’s not Lin – it’s this whole season. Be like Swaggy – have some fun.

  • blubell

    Yeah, hope he is ok. Another rookie with injury.

  • JoeTeam

    God is carrying him right now, like a dad for an exhausted child. methinks.

  • leeda harun

    well when it is about Jeremy anything can happen lol

  • JoeTeam

    I vote for 60 game season when games mean something. This grind is not good for players, and fans cannot afford the $ and time. You end up getting more fans with less love for the game, less knowledge.

  • livyrlife

    Taking a neutral stand, Jeremy hasn’t been performing. Great people change the world. Ghandi didn’t have the whole troop behind him yet he made such a huge impact. I know Basketball is a team sport but individual skill is also an integral part of the game as Jeremy fans put the blame on the lack of talent of his teammates…well, ok, Jeremy is just an ordinary man next door, but I will take him to be my beau anyday..lol

  • TTNN

    I listened to the radio and it was much longer for his interview.

  • PPP

    The title misleads that its lins fault. Can it just mention “lakers crushed by x team”.

    If its a win, then “lin crushed the x team” will be fine with me.

    I hate paul.

  • TTNN

    I don’t know what that means. He has an expiring contract, thus it is not like he could ask for the team to trade him, as no team would trade for an expiring since if they like this player, they could just sign him in the summer without giving up anything. And it is not Jeremy will be with Lakers any longer, so Lakers don’t really care whether he want a trade or not. I think it only could mean something if you have longer term contract for team to care your spot and money.

    On the other hand, with Lin’s contract, no team will trade for him unless they desperately need a PG, say a playoff run, a major injury in the team etc. He is pretty much a half season rental with pretty high rent.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats always the title weather they win or lose.either laker and lin destroy ….. or lin and lakers was destroyed

  • TTNN

    lol

  • Alaingrvis

    lol its very theatrical

  • PPP

    He needs to be smart enough who he is dealing with, know your teammates, eh i mean readers, and be assertive.

  • be patient, Kwok :]

    Lin got a different order from Byron to faciliate and play great D than Boozer to simply score.
    He did great facilitating but had trouble scoring when not touching the ball enough.
    Today Kobe played until end of Q1 because Byron was panicking.

    It’s a tough position because Byron trusted Kobe to do everything and Lin to do nothing.

    It’s a really tough time to be Lin fans. But it must be harder for him who experienced the lowest point of his BB career as he said. Not having a go-to-big-man who rolls to the basket really suppressed his game.

    Byron is either clueless or biased not to use Lin/Davis. Lin will figure out ways out of this messy maze

  • TTNN

    don’t want to be negative, but looks like Lin is in Byron’s dog house, I think we can see it coming and Lin can see it coming. Can’t do anything about it.

    In today’s interview, Lin mentioned that his usage rate was his career low, that’s kind of sad, and he is showing that he is really unhappy, but I don’t think that will help anyway. Byron after the game said Ronnie had a good game, smh, that’s telling.

    And when Young was asked how does he feel about the second team right now, Young was saying that there are a lot of guys in the second team like to have ball in their hand, as long as they are keep current playing, it should be fine. So, looks like Lin would lost his ball to Young, Boozer, and today, even Ellington. Not sure how long Lin can play his “right way of play basketball” though, I do think he is struggling in that area, he might question himself whether he should continue his “right way” or give in, and start play a bit more selfish. Unfortunately, he don’t really play well when he play selfish, but he does give up too much.

    I don’t like the way he played in the second half, even the game is gone, he was totally not aggressive and not trying to do anything.

  • Alaingrvis

    bravo

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha … then you have every right to tell him to get off his duff and put up a few points.

  • MoominFloren

    Aww…..did BS really say that Price had a good game? Smh

    Doghouse no matter what…..that’s why Lin said this is the toughest time for him.

    I think all players can feel who is the coach’s darling who is not.I didnt watch the game, and I dont know his body language on court. But if Lin allows the bench to take the ball out of his hands, it will be very very bad. No one is able to save him then.

  • JoeTeam

    Just FYI, JHill has had terrible numbers except this week. Without Lin on the starting team, he’s not producing anywhere near a starting big’s requirement.

  • Brent Yen

    Well Scott did blame Lin about not passing to him enough.

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy is supposedly better than these guards as claimed by his hardcore fans that Linsanity isn’t a fluke so you know he gotta be much better than these players. No, I wouldn’t compare him with these players if I still carry the belief that he is one hella talent. Now I know I should lower my expectations and yeah, he is just another guard and this is just another bad game… then I become less engaged. sigh

  • livyrlife

    Because JHill simply isn’t a very good player. plain and simple. 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Or some teams need to unload bad contracts

  • Brent Yen

    ooooooops u figured that out..now you need to run for your life

  • JoeTeam

    how Brent loves ya …

  • JoeTeam

    from the bench? Or for the v limited overlaps where Kobe is asking for the ball? V hard team to lead, from the trunk of the car.

  • sport

    Lets talk about something other than JLin that is more happy. Who should be MVP of he season? Anyone else glad it isn’t flopping Lebron James as main focus?

    Marc Gasol, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Davis are all great candidates hard to choose from with each having their good and bad. In terms of scoring and team record it’s be Curry but Davis’ offense and defensive ability is just plain amazing and legit not inflated by chucking 20 shots.

    http://www.nba.com/2014/news/features/sekou_smith/12/05/week-5-kia-race-to-the-mvp-stephen-curry-powering-golden-state-warriors-to-top-of-west/index.html

  • Alaingrvis

    curry probably

  • JoeTeam

    Oh, I’d love to compare him to the best too, and they have bad weeks, games as well. I had Duncan on my fantasy team last years, and some weeks I would not play him either.

    I hope Lin can give himself and us some great way out to have some fun. This year should be fun for him, before FA and collecting his balloon payment.

  • livyrlife

    As it’s clear to me tat Steph Curry is not better than Jeremy, Marc Gasol should be the MVP of the season. JMO.

  • leeda harun

    oh yes, as a big fan of jeremy
    I will always support him..

  • sport

    JLin needs to get it through his stubbornness that shooting more does not equal selfish unless he’s chucking 20 shots like Harden and Kobe! He needs to look at top10 PG shooting attempts and realize his is way below the average!! TOP10 PGs shooting from 12-15FGAs per game while he’s shooting 5-8! He plays better when he’s looking for his own shots. Forget what he dumb coach says, they all want to see him fail and ruin his stats so he won’t be considered an elite player! It was his shooting/scoring that got Linsanity all this attention certainly not his assists! Look at Rondo, dude can’t shoot, no matter how many assists he gets he won’t be considered the best PG in the league.

  • sport

    Exactly! For once he should just be like Swaggy, he hasn’t had fun playing and smiling an entire game since Linsanity. He has so much baggage the minute he’s on the court and not being confident. Just have fun, forget about what the coach says, forget about everything just go out there and do what you want to do which is score! We all like to play basketball obviously because of the shooting, stop thinking about assisting teammates who won’t give a **** about you.

  • Briiick

    Scott is playing with fire. Without allowing enough Lin’s contribution, he is starting another losing streak which could be long enough to further damage Kobe’s image and cost him his job.

  • TTNN

    He shoot too much outside shots, as a guard, 48.9% FG% is good, but as a big, that’s no good. He simply did not shoot enough inside shots, where he should have way higher FG%. He settles with his outside shot, even it has been okay, but that is still low % shots compare to near rim ones.

    Ed have 61% FG%, and was considered no offense on this team.

    BTW, Ed Davis since starts, got lower performance compare to Boozer, even lower rebounds.

  • sport

    But there’s no doubt Curry is a far better and more consistent and efficient off dribble shooter posting many 30 points games!

  • leeda harun

    I think scott is safe as long as kobe wants him to be a coach and afterall the team is tanking

  • sport

    If Scott was going to be fired, he’d be fired already, Lakers are tanking, so long as Kobe get his stats, he’s going to stay! Lin isn’t in Lakers’ long term plans that’s certain.

  • TTNN

    I don’t know about that. I was hoping the team could keep winning so there will be a demand for them to win more. If they keep losing, more people would want them to tank, then they don’t care how he utilize Lin. But if they are winning, people might want to win more, and then there is pressure for them to play Lin more.

    However, if Lin don’t show flashes of nice games, people will forget and settled with Price. And looks like Byron would rather start with Clarkson than play Lin. And if you listen to Byron and Kobe, what they ask for Lin to do are totally opposite to each other, Kobe would want Lin to keep shooting, and Byron want him to get others involved, that kind of discrepancy basically just saying Byron don’t really have a plan for Lin, and there is no clear goal for Lin to achieve in order for him to gain his position back, and they don’t really have a clear thought about that, Byron just want Lin be on bench, that’s it.

  • Brent Yen

    Seems like even Blaiyan is giving up on lin….lol

  • MoominFloren

    Are there many bad contracts right now? DWill? Joe Johnson? Amare? I can only think of Kobe …….

  • sport

    Byron obviously wants Price his golden boy to start, it’s been like that since training camp! Lin should forgot about what BS says and just do his thing when on the court and if they bench him for scoring then so be it!

  • Brent Yen

    Lol….yeah…one of the worst contract in the history…

  • TTNN

    no way Scott would be fired. Lakers are not contending, they don’t need to win now, what’s the point of firing him? Lakers are paying 3-4 coaches at this moment, they don’t need to pay one more coach. Plus, they just hired this coach, it is really hard not to give him at least one season.

    Just read that Lakers TV rating was 15% down than the same time last year, and getting to historically low, as the team income is coupled to the TV rating, I do hope the team will interfere if the team was playing really bad, and also in a really bad way, and then hope that would force Byron’s hand a little bit to play Lin.

    I hope Lin could hire a better agent. IT just fired his agent, guess he might not be happy to his signing in Suns. I hope Lin do the same thing, and see whether his agent would do something or not.

  • Brent Yen

    When he was a starter…

  • Brent Yen

    Btw…price really had a good game….I don think he can play any better. Scott is not lying…

  • TTNN

    no, it is not about Price to start, it is about Lin not to start. I don’t think Byron care whether it was Price or it was somebody else. He just don’t like to play rookie, and I would not surprise Clarkson would start over Lin.

    It is so easy when they have an okay game, the coach could go out of his way to say he did great. And when Lin had a good game, Byron would go ahead say he need to get others involved, even when Lin had a double double. That will obviously deliver the message.

  • Rick Johnson

    Do they still pay D’Antoni if he resigned?

  • Rick Johnson

    Let’s see how he does against Westbrook Friday.

  • TTNN

    I thought they are still paying Brown, not sure about D’Antoni though.

  • blubell

    He has a low standard then… for price? lol

  • blubell

    What do you mean? He’s still uploading Jeremy’s highlights.

  • Brent Yen

    I think lin will get a contract……..definitely not a league minimum…lol

  • leeda harun

    Jeremy fans are divided now but for me fans come and go….only family and true friends going to stick with you until the end

  • TTNN

    any game Price do not have 0 pt is a good game for him.

  • Brent Yen

    From his comment, I think he is just a highlight seeker….

  • Brent Yen

    Let’s hope the end is good!

  • TTNN

    that’s not fair to Blaiyan, he follows Lin since his GSW days.

  • Brent Yen

    Or made a three will be even better.

  • TTNN

    well, with his %, he will make a 3 every 4 games, so that’s not that bad.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin has been through all this…..cup of a McFlurry for him now. Easy!

  • Brent Yen

    U have rondo shooting FTs at that rate,,,,,I think price is elite…lol

  • Brent Yen

    Btw..I do not think system was really the problem for lin. Nothing bball about his performance. Simply just not used enough. Correctly or not.

  • TTNN

    I hope that’s not the last straw on his back. Can’t image how he would take it if Clarkson start over him and he is playing less than 20 min

  • Brent Yen

    No matter how Asian lin is..if Scott pulled that trigger,
    1. It is better than start price over lin.
    2. He is just shooting him self in the foot.

  • TTNN

    it is more like don’t allow him to do anything he tried to figure out. He figured the way to play together with Kobe, then push him down to bench, he find way to push the second team, and they might want him to involve others, and he work well with Ed Davis, and they never play together…..

    Byron is pretty good in taking out things one by one out of Lin’s hand.

  • TTNN

    I don’t care whether Byron is shooting his foot or his face, just feel sorry for Jeremy though.

  • Brent Yen

    Scott is not stupid or incapable as a coach. He just has a agenda. So. Lin will just have to sit out this yr….with low pt games. Things can change rather quickly, who knows.

  • TTNN

    I hope Lin continue to fight back. And still play his game like last game.

  • Brent Yen

    i am sure he is not feeling sorry for himself.

  • Brent Yen

    It will be more in consistent this yr dut to the minutes….that is inevitable

  • leeda harun

    Only God knows when things going to change

  • Brent Yen

    That is good enough for lin I think…lol

  • Brent Yen

    The proof that scott is not stupid. Those preseason games. So many brilliant sets. Kobe basically just ditched all the set that requires him to run. So only a select few slower sets left for him and boozer.

  • Brent Yen

    Nick young plays losing basketball. But lin needs him for now.

  • PPP

    But the question is why bs tries to do that to lin? Just because he wants price starts?

  • JoeTeam

    no lin … that’s the thing. Whomever doesn’t have Lin does worse. Good post, your right.

  • Brent Yen

    I think we should think the other way around. Lin simply is just very low on his list….not that he put lin on top of his bucket list and try to bench him. Results are the same tho

  • JoeTeam

    hmmm … from my eye test, he got lots of look pass kickouts to Hill for that planted midrange. Kobe got a lot of possessions form Lin. Where else did the ball go (not a really serious question).

  • JoeTeam

    I’m with you. If Lin has more fun, jokes around, since they look like they are tanking, we’d have more fun.

  • Brent Yen

    All in all….I think no matter where lin goes. He will be at least a very good back up PG. This is what he is perceived right now. It is not like he is going to be out of the league after this contract.

  • Rick Johnson

    With all the injuries on this team. This is ridiculous.

    https://twitter.com/LakerFacts/status/544770903108616193

  • JoeTeam

    wish I could have seen them like you did. To old to learn lol.

  • JoeTeam

    what’s that, his dribble shot game jr harden?

  • PPP

    He is not stupid, he is just retarded. lol

  • Brent Yen

    That why this is just all BS

  • Brent Yen

    He kills ball movement. With him, even lin had to play one on one. Which is very inefficient.

  • JoeTeam

    ah, pre-bias.

  • Brent Yen

    Now, whoever thinks lin is not trying to get better, to perform better should just rethink 10 more times…

  • leeda harun

    h doesnt want an asian kid on his team and hoping jeremy to ask for a trade

  • Brent Yen

    So maybe the plot is to overuse Kobe…..lol to get it over with…

  • JoeTeam

    of course it will be my friend. Life is not so rigid. There is a wonderful baby, or maybe a trip to Bora Bora with a gf, or an investment in the next team or hot startup. Lin will have a great future, way more adventure than his detractors will have. How bit the universe is …

  • JoeTeam

    I avoid listening to Kobe and BSc.

  • Brent Yen

    Exactly…

  • JoeTeam

    ah I see … yes. Not fast ball movement. Some fun some times, i guess. Fragile. What they call unstable convergence point in multivariable regression (I think … you would know better).

  • SamC89

    Was there someone that did a stat that when Lin’s usage or minutes played went up he performed a lot better?

  • Brent Yen

    WU kong did it. She killed her sites tho

  • JoeTeam

    roberlin had lots of those 30 min numbers.

  • SamC89

    I guess that’s progress. At first they said he wasn’t even Division 1 material. Then they said he wasn’t D-League material. Then they said he wasn’t NBA material.

    Sooner or later they will see he’s an All Star.

  • JoeTeam

    yes, let’s give him jia you.

  • Brent Yen

    Even half of the lin fans think he does not deserved to be voted…well u know

  • SamC89

    Curry is definitely the better shooter. But overall it’s hard to say who’s a “better” when each different weaknesses and strengths.

    I think either Gasol or Davis will get the nod right now.

  • leeda harun

    i always believe that jeremy try to get better but scott always ahead of him and take every thing bit by bit so jeremy needs to figure out how to perform better each game … that is a huge stress

  • Brent Yen

    It is a fact the Kobe knows all the tricks, all the foot works on both ends of the floor. But it is time that he writes a book on those because he can not do it any more.

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha, I can reply through the filters – hit refresh …

  • Brent Yen

    He just has to do his best with what ever is still given to him.

  • JoeTeam

    11

  • Carol Tiu

    That thought comes to my mind a lot, too.

  • livyrlife

    I believe Jeremy is trying his to get better. IMHO, he doesn’t need to improve his hard skill, rather his soft skill needs improvement…strange that he still hasn’t found a way to counter the effect of b2b after 3 seasons.

  • Brent Yen

    Eventually lin has to play slow bball anyway in the end of his career. He might as well just hone his skill now.

  • sport

    True but right now JLin hasn’t posted consistent 20, 30 point games since Linsanity. Basketball is all about scoring and Curry can do that. Defensively JLin is a bit better and he can get to the rim well but so can Curry.

  • JoeTeam

    I really want him to see a sport psychologist and hire a media trainer. But, I think fundamental Christians don’t believe in therapy. Is that true anyone know?

  • Brent Yen

    He is not the only one. The big reason was because he was asked to do too much on D

  • JoeTeam

    now that’s making lemonade …

  • Brent Yen

    This is weird. So u think curry can put those number in this LAL team? With only19 minutes? Curry can not go to the rim without picks…but anyway…it seems unrealistic.

  • Brent Yen

    @psalm234‘s favororite drink! Lol

  • Brent Yen

    Forget about Lin’s production. It is not gonna happen with Kobe and scott. It is what it is.

  • sport

    Yes from stats it should Lin needs more than 30 minutes to perform well. The fact that BS held JLin to 29 minutes and benched him for 9 minute stretches didn’t help since he’s a rhythm player.

  • Brent Yen

    Thing is why does he keep separating him and Davis when everyone including himself acknowledges they have a good chemistry? Even if Lin is low on his list, that’s pretty much a no-brainer to run more plays with them, but it seems like he deliberately ignores this.

  • 311

    http://stats.nba.com/player/#!/202391/tracking/passes/?Season=2014-15&SeasonType=Regular%20Season

    There’s a fliter to set date range but I’m too lazy to look up the dates of him starting.

  • Acbc

    It’s very disappointing that Lin doesn’t have a chance to play his game in LA. Melo probably told KOBE not to let ever recreate Linsnaity in LA because of what happened to him with the Knicks. Melo had to get MDA fired and replace him with someone who would put the ball back into his hands. I remember saying that the timing of Lin’s sudden dog house treatment began with the game where he out shined KOBE and had 21 points.

    It’s now obvious that Lakers from the top down only cares to make KOBE happy and the rest of the team are interchangeable scrub pieces. The fact that Mitch and the Busses don’t do anything is complicit to the marginalization of Lin and the rest of the team. It’s like JFK said “if you are not part of the solution, you AREA part of the problem”.

    As a fan of Lin, my own addiction of his life and trials often affects my psych. None of what we say ever affects what he does on court anyways. While the Internet is a way for lin fans to “connect”, it’s permanance is in “the clouds” somewhere for data scrubbers to make use of us. So my participation in these forums is really like an addiction that needs to be self regulated for my own sanity. Being a lin fan is a difficult task but his inspiration is what really draws people to him and NOT becasue he’s Asian. He is an underdog like a lot of people who have never been given a proper chance to succeed.

    The best thing lin has done recently is the creation of a prayer group. People often wonder if heaven exists. While I have never seen it myself, my guess is that it’s a bit like how we keep a place in our hearts for family and friends thousands of miles apart. I get to see my family once or twice a year and yet their spirit lives with me each day in a special place that is beyond physicality.

    I only learned this the hard way when a good friend and I had parted on bad terms over a silly incident. It was only afterwards that I realize how important each of our friends and love ones are to us. While this ex friend is living no more than a 10 minute drive away, his silence is felt deep in my safe place, my “heaven”. He is alive and yet he feels dead and gone now. This became clear when I could no longer feel his presence within my heart. My foundation of strength was shaken. When love is ever present its because we ARE connected to one another with our spirit. It is why even though my mom passed away many years ago, I don’t miss her the way I miss my ex friend.

    The best way for me to support Lin is not necessarily by declaration of physical support for him. It’s in adding my spiritual support to his foundation of strength.

  • 311
  • Tey Ling

    Why should JLin be so depressed with the loss when the coach, Kobe, Boozer, Nick are not when interviewed. Even the 3 commentators in TWC took it as a norm when it is 3 games in 4 nights. Likewise we as Lin fans should just forget about this game and move on.

  • Tey Ling

    However don’t forget to vote JLin into the ASG 2015 as a protest vote for coach treatment thus far in Rox and Lakers. Twink twink…

    Lin needs our vote even more this season. http://www.nba.com/allstar/ or by tweet.

  • KHuang

    Kobe is nothing like Jordan in anything other than stature.

    Their games are OPPOSITE.

    Jordan was a team player first, and he was pretty much a perfect player.

    Kobe Bryant is the brickiest and most selfish player in NBA history.

    The difference between Jordan and Bryant is akin to the difference between Jeremy Lin and Ronnie Price.

  • KHuang

    I WISH that the NBA was more money oriented.

    If it was, Jeremy Lin would be featured more because so much money can be made off him.

    Instead, racial issues that have nothing to do with basketball keep knocking Lin out.

    It’s sad to see that racism overrides money, especially when it comes to the way Lin is currently being phased off the Lakers for being Asian.

  • BobbyH

    If a team comes forward asking for Lin, would Lakers let him go?

  • KL

    Sometimes to get past tough times I focus on some event in the near future. Maybe we can just focus on the next game. Or mid season. I personally did not expect Kobe or Byron to change anything after Kobe surpassed MJ in points. However, things may change towards the end of the season.

  • 7iger

    Yup, that is why I stop voting for Lin stats in every game. I want to vote high but not going to happen with BS as the ___ and I don’t want to vote low because I know Lin is capable more than that.

  • KL

    The Lakers should not let Lin go for nothing. However Lin’s last 2 teams let him go for nothing, (or even worse!)

  • 7iger

    I was thinking of the same thing. May be the Lakers sabotage Lin’s stat so none want him and the Lakers can sign him during FA.

  • KHuang

    Elite players have to be ALLOWED to take over.

    Lin gets benched and punished for attacking and playing well.

  • MoominFloren

    Agreed. Was wondering why there was nothing after a win but they interviewed Lin after an awful loss?!?!. I was looking for BS post interview and unable to find a word from him!!! Yes Lin’s shooting was off but that’s not the reason of this shameful team performance. He played 16 min only, at least not the main reason of it.

    Both Lin and Lin fans should move on. Just keep cheering for him when he delivers, and Don’t be sad if he’s not performing. We should understand that Lin is under constraint currently, and we all witness how BS prevents linsanity from the beginning.

    I guess we can expect more from Lin if the game is on national TV. They will require to use Lin properly as to save the dignity of the franchise…….

  • Greg has excellent points in his latest article.
    I think it deserves its own thread for further discussion on what Jeremy can do to get more minutes in his currently marginalized role.

    Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Regresses, Kobe Bryant Simply Won’t Stop

    https://twitter.com/Sportige/status/544861280511594500

  • MoominFloren

    From the Chinese forum, not sure about the source.

    They said Lin once told Taiwan media that he was requested by BS to leave the perimeter and help the bigs to protect the paint. Later, BS criticized Lin for the poor perimeter defense, giving no effort etc. Hence, the bench.

    Many fans (including me) do complain about his help defense……if it is the case, I feel really sorry for Lin…….his situation is beyond our imagination, glad that Lin has the Faith to overcome it…..

    Please vote for Lin. He needs fans support more than ever.

  • SamC89

    I think there’s also a psychological factor to it. At some point, you just need to rest and relax when things are out of your control. And she probably felt the best way was to close it down for now. Hopefully she comes back someday.

    Just wanted to share some views from LG:

    http://forums.lakersground.net/viewtopic.php?t=171444

    The post game analysis on various players and coach is quite fair and to the point. Some of the comments below also reflects what fans think of Lin vs BS.

  • I created a new thread to discuss some ideas positively on what Jeremy can do to get more minutes in a system that takes away his PnR strength (no Lin/Davis), Kobe taking his PG job and under Byron Scott who favored a lesser player in Price.

    Remember we have to stay calm and positive in this frustrating situation.

    Whatever it may be, I’m convinced Lin is aware of this problem and is smart enough to know what he needs to do to survive and thrive in this system. It might take some time but he’s a survivor so I’m confident he will find away to overcome this latest challenge.

    If the situation with Lakers is not improving, I can see Lin and Lin fans be more open to these destinations rather than having Lin be marginalized on the bench with fewer minutes than HOU.

  • I like DancingBarry’s message for Lin to “go down with a fight” if BScott doesn’t run enough PnR and will replace him with Clarkson

    Lin — — “It’s just a game that I wish I could have back,” Lin said. He played uninspired ball out there. The game was practically out of reach before he entered the game, but he brought nothing to the table when he entered the game. When asked about two-man game with Boozer and getting that going, he talked about the usage rate of the pick and roll in this season and said it’s the lowest of his career. Basically, Scott isn’t letting him play to his strengths with much consistency. It’s true and pretty annoying. But if you’re going to be benched for Clarkson in the first half, screw it. Run what you want and just get it done. Go down with a fight.

    The Stats: He scored 2 points on 0-6 shooting (0-1 from three, 2-2 from the line) to go with 1 assist, 1 turnover and 1 foul in 17 minutes. He was a -1.

    The Action: He missed a lefty layup on an up-and-under move. He missed an open wing three. He pushed it up with a couple seconds left and drew a tripping foul with 0.6 left in the quarter, he made both FTs. He attacked to his left and missed the layup. He missed a 19-footer (looked like he had Boozer open under the hoop). He fumbled a dribble away, dunk for the Pacers. He barely hit rim on a step-back jumper.

    Second Half: He gave up a straight line layup. He went under the screen and gave up a wide open three as he and the big weren’t on the same page. He pressured his man into a bad pass and turnover. He attacked the paint and missed layup over a big (might have gotten away with a clear-out foul).

    I guess Lin already did his fight in that Boston game deviating from BS’s “game plans” and it did not help him at all. I kind of think Lin is playing with a mental tiredness now which is really hard to overcome. His mind is just very foggy with no sunshine, which have affected his concentration in shooting.

  • Blaiyan made a 45-sec highlights

  • The situation is so confusing for Lin.

    BScott benched him after the BOS game, then asked him to play D and facilitate. But there was no PnR to help him facilitate consistently.

    It’s hard not to think BS went out of his way not to feature Lin’s strength.
    He’s too busy catering to what made Kobe look good.

    At the end of the day, scoring is the staying power in the NBA.
    Lin would have no other choice than finding ways to score to “force” the coaches to use him in a game.

    Lakers and BScott coaching are simply a mess.
    I think Mitch chose him to appease Kobe+tanking at the same time because he knows BScott system won’t be good enough to compete.

    Lin needs to figure out a way to survive this “Keith Smart Part 2” where he was benched for Acie Law as @real-dsb called it

    yeah, that looks like the case, as it was the original plan for it, and that killed the 3 pt defense. And it is not like Price did any better than Lin, that part I totally don’t understand. Price was even worse. Price float a lot of times and totally just left his man. He don’t even tried to recover, so people would think it is other people did not rotate.

    good time for him to practice 1:1 iso play. He had a good drive yesterday, but just was not able to finish. He should try to do that more. Don’t rely on his teammates.

    Detroit, boston, and brooklyn. given if william and rando is traded

    one thing I noticed that since join Lakers, pre-game practice for Lin, I saw him practice way more long 2s, but not 3s. When he was in in Rockets, he practice 3s all the time, but here, he was shooting one step inside 3 point line, would that gradually decrease his range? His 3s somehow was not as sharp as last season. At least I was not feeling that way. Not sure what it is.

    Also for his defense, there is plenty of time that he was with his man, but looks like he is not strong enough to either stop them or force them change direction, so even he is there, they still fine a way to get deep into the paint, that’s another thing puzzles me, somehow I thought he used to be better than that, he used to have problem to catch up, but this year, he was with them, but still not able to do something, that’s kind of frustrate though. Why is that?

  • that’s the spirit :]
    We gotta keep fighting to overcome challenges!

  • OKC PreGame thread+Poll is open

    Let’s move forward to the next game. And hope Jeremy keeps fighting hard to overcome this challenge!
    It’s good to hear Jeremy expressing his frustration of not being able to bring his capability to the team (insinuating BScott and the system doesn’t run enough PnR utilizing his strength)

  • true, I like the starting position and a lot of minutes too!

  • Brent Yen

    All are not bad I guess…

  • Acbc

    They will lose him anyways at the end of the season.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir!!

  • spiderman

    Silly media targets the Asian guy to explain lakers blowouts.

  • grover chang

    He always seemed to funnel his player to a big for a block or slow them down so he could catch up. The Lakers big not helping as much. When boozer is motivated I notice Lin is able to stay with his man

  • JoeTeam

    I think by now enough players like JLin. Don’t know about racism in sports but I guess I’ve sat the bench enough to know you just have no say in what a coach wants to do. It’s a very sick feeling to know you can help win games, and you are sitting sitting sitting …

    I’m glad Dancing Barry has recognized the bad impact of Byron Scott’s mistreatment of Lin.
