G40 CLE @ LAL Game Thread

Kobe will play so JLin might get only 16-20min unless the game goes to OverTime when Kobe is not supposed to play to exceed 32min

Keep smiling and play your best, JLin!

    GO GO JLin!

  • Nitron

    2nd

  • Bearness

    3rd QQ

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Where is everyone else??? No take as we know we are going to see limited JLin plays again??? Let’s see which team is going for another loss. Personally my evil Melody would like to see Lakers loses big and JLin plays well:-)

  • pandaboy99

    hopefully someone records the tnt overtime so we can get some interesting gifs of lin

  • John Lee

    It’s not evil if you’re wishing justice.

  • Bearness

    The game thread doesn’t show on home page for me. Maybe it’s the same for others.

  • CaliUSMC

    Im here 😀

  • orLinaryjoe

    Did you guys see this kobe frozen parody? Hilarious!

  • Maknusia

    Its fine for me, might be some caching issue

  • golfhacker

    If the Lakers fall behind early like last game, the fans will finally have enough and really boo loud. Perfect for national TV broadcast 🙂

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes it goes viral in Twitter and FB:-)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You need to refresh it if you are already checked in with another thread. Only refresh will see the new one after you check in previously.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good. Are you going to watch the game marine?

  • orLinaryjoe

    LOL, I’m last to get it. Still at work.

  • Bearness

    Haha, gave me a good laugh.

  • Bearness

    Tried refreshing, closing browser, etc. Still not working. Never happened before. Very weird. But, I already followed your link to game thread so it’s OK.

  • orLinaryjoe

    RFLOL. Didn’t see Lin in it though. Disappointed in that.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Anybody know how to stream game on Samsung S5?

  • golfhacker

    I have the same issue.

  • BobbyH

    17. Olaf.

  • orLinaryjoe

    haha. Didn’t even see that on my phone. Duh

  • BobbyH

    One of the scenes, Olaf took the ball out of Kobe’s hand.

  • LW

    The Lakers probably need to be at least .56 to get into playoffs in the west. Which means they need to be 46-36. They are 12-27 now so they have to be 34-9 starting from today. Anyone think this is probable? No! So like Magic said, they will play to lose the rest of the way to make the most out of this season. Expect any illogical or dumb rotation by BS because that’s really just logical.

  • cali7

    This doesnt answer your question but if you are having trouble you can listen to nba radio as an alternative. You can pick the feed also.

  • Bearness

    ROFL I missed that!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Oops Forgot to say that. You need to open a new tab and get in the site. Then you will see the new thread. Refresh doesn’t solve it unless you are on http://www.jlinportal.com/

  • Rookie75094

    It is sickening to see the hustun rockets get to play shorthanded teams. Lucky bastards

  • golfhacker

    This will be game 40, 20 games now since Jeremy and Boozer moved to bench. Didn’t BS say he would reassess the lineups after game #40?

  • Rookie75094

    Yes… we are waiting to see what the bs liar will do

  • Bearness

    Doesn’t mean Lin is coming back to starter line up unless Price gets injured.

  • John Lee

    Kobe and Price starting lineup doing stellar tanking work as is, no need for further adjustment…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He said 10-15 games and last interview he said he liked the lineup. So, no change.

  • Solo

    Lol, our #17 popped up at least twice!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    What’s the point? hate to see Lin be kobe’s ball boy.

  • BobbyH

    A word comes to my mind when I thought what he would say as I know he will just continue his inventive excuses: Narcissism

    Then I just realized it is an insult to that word.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin to play free like Olaf! take the ball from K!

  • Alaingrvis

    he loves price forget about it

  • Brent Yen

    Unlikely to happen. He will say he liked this line up

  • Let’s go, OLin! =)

  • Bearness

    Psalm King of Lin puns!

  • BobbyH

    As in OLaf?

    Edit: Didn’t see the pic.

  • blubell

    Scott just admitted he is ill-prepared for this game lol.

  • It’s not me. It’s in the Youtube video LOL

  • blubell

    Hmm. Don’t know about that… lol

  • BluBelLin, the real Queen of Lin puns!

  • Yascar

    I really love this. JLin is so Olaf. The one that saves the movie from becoming too melodramatic. Changes the narrative in so many unexpected ways. Willing to sacrifice himself for the good of all. Definitely worth melting for! 🙂

  • I think the Youtube video maker is trying to send a message.

    Kobe was making a magical frozen ice basketball then passing it to ‘OLin’ as you can see on the back jersey of Olaf 😀 (see snapshot below)

    It could be saying Kobe should be handing over the magic to OLin now!

  • blubell

    All hail psalm!

  • CJSHYY

    OMG, I think Jeanie & Jim should fire him now… how could he say so? smh!

  • blubell

    He said he doesn’t watch CLE… meaning he didn’t do the homework. Max n marcellus made fun of him.

  • John 3:16

    my boy lin going to have a fantastic season post all star break mark my words

  • Maknusia

    really!…was kinda buzy, didnt view any recent interviews…sigh!

  • CJSHYY

    I read somewhere said why he rest Kobe bc Kobe wants to retire in high point…? If so right now it’s the best timing.. LOL!

  • there is auto-caching feature that’s refreshed every 15-30min.
    Usually I refreshed it manually but this time I scheduled it so that’s why you didn’t see it immediately on homepage

  • Maknusia

    i’m looking forward for today’s game…maybe too high of a hope from me 🙂

  • MoominFloren

    It’s not a pass, OLin jumped and stole the ball (spotlight)

  • Bearness

    Why is no one surprised? LOL

  • yes, that’s the punchline =)

  • JC

    40/15/8

  • Brent Yen

    40tovs/ 15 fgas / 8mins?

  • JC

    That is good news,

  • given up by Kobe? =)

  • JC

    Lol I just watched Frozen last night…

  • Maknusia

    by the whole team

  • blubell

    Very active..

  • hm, maybe only then Lin will play a lot in garbage time

  • golfhacker

    A little off topic here, but looking ahead to the Feb 1 game at Knicks. I live in the NYC area and fans here are ripping into Knicks ownership, FO and coach. I can’t wait to hear the Knicks fans at the game chanting “We want Lin, We want Lin”!!!

  • Lakers Magazine Cover: @JLin7
    Apparently, Librafree said it’s sold pregame at Staples Center and also presented to VIP member.

    https://twitter.com/Librafree/status/555914006712442882

  • hm, maybe BScott will be given direction to play Lin 36min for a trade bait LOL

  • So Olaf grew hair overnight then, hehe..

  • MoominFloren

    Why Beverley ???

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s what I thought…? from his haircut looks like the first game vs Rox?

  • Linja

    Lin Tin Tin always reminds me that “what is intended for evil, God intends for GOOD.”
    Have faith and enjoy life. Cheers,

  • leeda harun

    I am more interested abiut the content

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! We won this time… but not sure how long Lin can be on court…?! Happy!!!

  • leeda harun

    who ever made this video…I just want to say…I love it ang thanks.

  • Rick Johnson

    Well, pre-game the camera is on Bryant. Rigged, just like last year.

  • CJSHYY

    Talk about his D?! Do they have this magazine every month?

  • Alaingrvis

    okc is a lot worse this year

  • nodomo
  • CJSHYY

    Oh! Sucks.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Watched 1st Q only… can’t believe how bad they played today? Plus Rox 3P shooting is good tonight so… smh!

  • Alaingrvis

    harden foul calls

  • Maknusia

    its a good game though…KD and JH going at each other

  • FrankW

    Holy smokes, 96%! Where are the Kobe fans?

    LeBron + Kyrie only 76%?

  • golfhacker

    3 mins game time left in OKC-Rox game – which means another 15 mins real time left. SMH.

  • FrankW

    Is that James Harden?

  • blubell
  • blubell

    Did Jeremy just dunk? 🙂

  • John Lee

    Ok now guys, let’s do our best in acting surprised. LOL

  • pandaboy99

    Well now we know the TNT overtime vote was rigged

  • golfhacker

    Oh-oh, Reggie Miller on broadcast. Lin hater.

  • Love Lin

    Am I out of the loop? JR Smith is in CLE?

  • MoominFloren

    Still better than Stu

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    weeks ago

  • blubell

    Tru dat.

  • FrankW

    April 2012-2013 average, 34.7min, 6.9ast, 17.3 points as
    the starter for the Rockets.
    Hope he lit it up from the bench tonight with a great game.

  • sport

    Rigged for Kobe! Lin was leading with 96% right before the game!

  • Love Lin

    Thx! Guess the only player Ive concerned is Lin.. 🙂

  • John Lee

    Would love to see Lin school him!

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs killing it

  • ETC

    I think lakers has the talent to have a decent season but wrong coach.

  • sport

    JR Smith can replace partially Ray Allen’s success for Lebron. JR is lucky to go from a bottom of he league to a “contending” team.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe + Jordan Hill –> fatal attraction

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    double digit lead for Cavaliers.
    Go Cav.

  • sport

    Against these scrub, bench players posing as starters and an oldie in Kobe, not that hard.

  • Love Lin

    Bench mobs fight.. 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs defense is crap though

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs are shooting 72 percent lol nice defense

  • Lymania

    and I won’t surprised if Knicks beat the lakers……Then we won’t hear the chanting of “we want lin”.

  • sport

    Lin coming in, on the side lines = BS wants to win against Lebron and Cavs for Kobe.

  • LAJane

    I’ll start paying attention now 🙂

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lin will not play a lot. i expect 32 mpg for price

  • sport

    Price should be going out after shooting his foul shots, got pushed hard to the ground, ouch LOL. OK maybe not until after 3 minute mark. =/

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs take a lot of bad shots

  • Lymania

    Diva gets all the attention.Diva needs no votes.

  • Alaingrvis

    no wonder they have loss 6 in a row

  • Pete Roces

    first DNP-CD for Lin?

  • Alaingrvis

    lin wasnt thats kelly coming in

  • Lymania

    How much? What if you pay the money and realize lin is only showing on the cover and no where found in the magnizine. Haha

  • 311

    Maybe my feed is slow but I see Lin sitting on the bench while Price is shooting FTs.

  • LAJane

    ya…back to cleaning out the freezer

  • BobbyH

    That’s a sign of TradeLin.

  • sport

    He’s on the side lines with his jacket, should be coming in with or before Nick Young.

  • sport

    Lakers don’t want any salary back, at most they’ll waive him.

  • Alaingrvis

    no he is not

  • blubell

    Price playing the whole quarter? lol

  • sport

    What? I could’ve sworn he was sitting on the sidelines seconds ago, false alarm sorry ><"

  • Pete Roces

    He is at the bench.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • LW

    Scott grooming Price as starter and Lin as bench sub.

  • Pete Roces

    since pre season, thats BS’s agenda

  • blubell

    2 fouls for Price..

  • Yascar

    Looks like it. He’s playing a little bit better today. Which is to say 2ft, 1ast and 1rb so far. Please note the heavy tone of sarcasm.

  • sport

    OK why are the 2nd unit all sitting on the sideline at 3 minute mark and not going in until 36 seconds?! What THE?!

  • ViNuyork

    really?? -JLin is DNP-CD…

  • Pete Roces

    BS is such an AH, subbing Lin in with only few seconds left.

  • LW

    Kobe got touch today, so BS will play him 40min.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • JJ Hui

    Now Lin is coming out 36.8 seconds left 1st quarter! Bs coach!

  • MoominFloren

    #$%^&*!@

  • Tim Pham

    this is a game lin might as well get dnp-cd. kobe is going to hog for the assist records now. even when kobe’s not scoring, he’s going to be selfish for something else.

  • Alaingrvis

    price will play 17 minutes this haif. 4-5 for lin

  • MoominFloren

    I am expecting Lin to have 16 min…..it will be lucky if he can get 10min at this rate

  • sport

    The 3, 2nd unit players looked like poor puppies waiting for their Snack at the 3 minute mark on the sideline and BS refused give until 36 seconds left!! SMH! Who are the defensive players, starters or bench?!!

  • Frank

    Lin needs to speak up
    He is obviously being mistreated
    his last interview was like oh we have to play with more intensity and all

  • Charlie Sun

    You could say that the starters have been very inconsistent in first quarters. But all you’ll see is “let’s see if JLin can find his consistency”

  • Alaingrvis

    4 months left just wait it out

  • MoominFloren

    3 months

  • Joe what do you know

    That’s not nice to say. But he’s a cancer himself for the Lakers…

  • sport

    Yea and pigs will fly!

  • Alaingrvis

    season end april 15

  • JJ Hui

    Kobe in there and the score is decent so they dont need second unit to help! BS coach! His name stand for that!

  • kauaiblue

    Does anyone in LA know whether people at staples have in jlin? As in like its fun to watch when he gets it on? Or do they just think hes a scrub? To us its obvious… when he gets a chance to do his thing then well we know.

  • blubell

    Price is in foul trouble… what will Scott do now?

  • Alaingrvis

    play him more

  • Pete Roces

    same situation in Houston, just deal with it and move on, being an Asian American, its really hard for him to speak up.Most people will notice the mistreatment unless you are blind.

  • kauaiblue

    30 30 excellent defense

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Who is playing PG?

  • ETC

    Play anyone but lin

  • sport

    Yet BS had them sitting on the sideline around the 3 minute mark! I knew I saw Lin on the bench before the 3 minute mark. Guess he was just on the sideline to stretch. And all 3, 2nd units waited there desperately wanting to go in but BS didn’t let them until 36 seconds! BIAS Coach!

  • Dorothy

    3333333333333333333

  • Rick Johnson

    What a scam, the TNT cam is still on Kobe even though he’s on the bench. SMH Votes don’t mean anything.

  • blubell

    Swish!

  • Dorothy

    3333333333333333333333

  • blubell

    3333333333

  • sport

    Lin with 5 points already woot woot!!

  • Love Lin

    Gr8 start !! Lin..

  • Charlie Sun

    OOOO He’s feeling it. Damn it he’s going to get benched

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Love in? Wow C starters playing against LAL bench

  • ETC

    Well at least bs is making it obvious how he feels about Lin. No need to guess.

  • JJ Hui

    Yes,Lin is swaggggggg!

  • Alaingrvis

    soon

  • golfhacker

    More arc in his shot now. Much better.

  • Frank

    not same
    this is worse

  • sport

    Lin’s happy to play against a great player like Lebron, giving his best for the game and happy, having fun! Great!! Just keeping shooting!!

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Singapore BB Fan

    What took KB the full qtr to do…JLin took half the time…

  • pandaboy99

    this camera thing is awesome

  • Jxfo

    JLin, be strong and courageous. Keep your smile!

  • Pete Roces

    LIn said enough is enough!!!! FU BS KB!!!

  • Lymania

    Blame khuang. He puts the idea in BS’s head. *jkjkjkjk* (⌒▽⌒)

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is on good start.

  • Frank

    BS told Lin to stop shooting

  • dons

    Lin needs to meet the Assist challenge by Kobe. Just don’t pass to Young — oops, just as I type, pass to Young, who totally bricks a mid-range shot.

  • Brent Yen

    Of course Scott calls the play for nick

  • Frank

    Lin stop listening to bs just shoot

  • sport

    LOL Lin raised his hand and wanted to take the foul for Black but not happening.

  • golfhacker

    Don’t worry, Swaggy will kill Lin’s momentum.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Can’t watch, but GoLin!

  • blubell

    Scott can even look Jeremy in the eyes….

  • Promo Sports World

    Showcase jeremy

  • ETC

    Waiting for lin to get pulled. Thankful he got 5pts

  • blubell

    Assist!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The bench flows with ease?

  • JJ Hui

    Tonight i didnt hear STUpid as commentator! My ear is a lot happier! LOL!

  • dons

    Yes, showcase Lin for a trade.

  • sport

    Man, Young always does the stepback so Lin doesn’t get assists from him! <.<

  • golfhacker

    What is he thinking there?

  • Promo Sports World

    Cavs look slow

  • Alaingrvis

    iso ball all day

  • sport

    Same here, no STUpid commentator, makes the game so much more enjoyable. They don’t mention Lin but at least they aren’t hating on the Asian guy! SMH

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Black in foul trouble

  • sport

    Dude Lin, don’t listen to Scott keeping shooting for your stats!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    What happened there

  • sport

    Bogus foul on Lin!! Opps nevermine!! On Black!! Pheww!!

  • ETC

    Someone has to slow lin down. It might as well be the refs

  • Dorothy

    so everyone is PG now? BS just does not want Lin to shine

  • Frank

    Lin just ignore them play ur ball

  • sport

    They “WANTED” to give Lin that foul, and Lin looked at them like What THE BEEP?!!

  • Brent Yen

    Did Cavs got a game yesterday? LBJ looks completely out of sorts..

  • Alaingrvis

    young is shooting no matter what

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lol Lin made LBJ nervous

  • BobbyH

    Cave tied on Lin for that play.

  • Dorothy

    exactly, it can not get worse than this, so just play your ball

  • Charlie Sun

    I think JLin just caused a LBJ TO

  • blubell

    He makes me nervous too 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Iggy made him dumber

  • Pete Roces

    I will just wait for the highlights, all these ballhogging is hurting my eyes, Young is so selfish, he is playing all by himself.

  • sport

    LOL can’t play bad against the Asian guy, plus Lebron knows who’s the best player and defender on the team and it’s not Kobe LMAO.

  • Alaingrvis

    that offense suck. they have zero chemistry

  • Charlie Sun

    Bench JLin. Can’t outshine head of snake!

  • blubell

    Wes is blocking the view…

  • Lin kept patting him on the butt between FTs so he’s confused if Lin is friend or foe LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Me too

  • sport

    BS wants to win this game for Kobe vs Lebron rivalry. New King vs Old King!!

  • MoominFloren

    BS: I make your wish come true

  • Brent Yen

    Once lin gets 7pts…Scott….will

  • sport

    LOL, Lin just respect Lebron for being unselfish star player, Kobe? Not so much!!

  • Dorothy

    but I believe he has BS blessing to do so

  • Pete Roces

    Lin will only excel again if MDA is the coach or he is playing for Spurs, no more no less

  • blubell

    ….explode

  • Pete Roces

    precisely, BS is tanking so definitely he wants young to brick.

  • John Lee

    That’s been pretty consistent, at least 2 to 3 each game.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lebrons hairline is insane

  • joyce ward
  • Charlie Sun

    With the big guys getting into foul trouble, BS may have to go small which means more time for JLin

  • sport

    Note box score very slow, Lin has 2 assist already according to play by play!!

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin can get killed

  • sport

    Lin please keep shooting!!

  • Promo Sports World

    No stopping Nick Young chucking

  • Joyw2

    Finally come to his senses and keep Lin for 30 min tonight!

  • Promo Sports World

    Chuck

  • Promo Sports World

    Lucky chucker

  • Brent Yen

    Hill was lazy…wth

  • Alaingrvis

    lin will be out soon

  • ETC

    Yes. Cavs are not betting against nick. They are betting he will miss.

  • dons

    I’d even take Clarkson over Young, who might share ball a bit more?

  • Frank

    already out

  • Promo Sports World

    After the break man lol

  • 311

    Lin was on Love, why did he leave him alone under basket?

  • Frank

    Lin you know youre sitting soon but still passes to Swaggy
    thats not team play or following coach’s instruvtion anymore
    thats just pure stupidity

  • sport

    Box score finally up to date! Lin 5pts, 2rebounds, 2 assists!!! Keep shooting!!

  • dons

    Can you imagine Young, Clarkson, & Randle all playing at same time — plus a 38 yrs old Kobe next year?

  • blubell

    Let Price pick up a 3rd foul.

  • BobbyH

    Let Lin play his game.

  • sport

    NO……!!!

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol its come to waiting for a scrub like price to get a foul so lin can play

  • blubell

    Lets enjoy the bench cam 🙂

  • Frank

    and you enjoy it? cool
    cuz a lot of us dont enjoy lin being screwd

  • Brent Yen

    Because hill finally ran back..he thought the big will switch back

  • joyce ward

    Are they showing Lin?

  • occupatio

    how was that not a foul for lin?

  • blubell

    Come on… it was like this in HOU.

  • Charlie Sun

    Solid coaching as always… not

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is Lin

  • BobbyH

    You can vent at the other site.

  • blubell

    yes but they’re showing young because both Jeremy and Kobe are on the bench.

  • Frank

    u can go back to lakersground
    cuz Lin deserves better

  • occupatio

    he hit the ground hard too. so obvious. unbelievable

  • sport

    Why does Lin listen to BS when it’s obvious he’s being marginalized?! Just ignore him and look for his own shots!!

  • 311

    So he was too slow to switch with Lin?

  • Love Lin

    Missed the dunk n missed the FTs.. 🙁

  • MoominFloren

    If not listening to his BS, I bet Lin will be DNP immediately…..

  • sport

    Lebron is not taking this game seriously, missed the dunk.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    price getting a lot of calls today

  • sport

    He’s already DNP!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well seem like JLin is going to play less than 15 minutes. Min lower and lower each game:-(

  • Frank

    Lin its time to call it a quit

  • Love Lin

    Hes been DNP-CD 4 a long while thou..

  • Alaingrvis

    kobe rewarded for not running back

  • Brent Yen

    What transition defense?

  • Alaingrvis

    also cavs have bad spacing

  • Frank

    I’ve always been agaisnt tweeting at Jeanie Buss but this is it imma curse her the fk out

  • sws94

    I’m sick now, enough is enough of Lin getting cheated with minutes.

  • Pete Roces

    DNP-CD will come sooner than we think, we have to brace for it, BS is going to do it as per Kobe or FO’s order.

  • Alaingrvis

    why

  • MoominFloren

    Lin wants to play, even it is 10 min per game…..

  • Alaingrvis

    i told you he will play very little

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is Lin!!

  • webattorney

    It seems whenever Kobe is on the floor, Lin sits. I would guess Lin will play around 14 minutes or so this game.

  • sport

    Dude there’s no point! She can’t do anything, Jim Buss is in charge of basketball operations for remaining 3 yeras! Kobe is still going to be there for 2 years and they need to protect their “old franchise”

  • ETC

    If lin doesnt get minutes, hopingthe team tanks.

  • JJ Hui

    Dont use the word stupid on Lin, no respect!
    I know for sure he is a lot smarter than you

  • Brent Yen

    I think it is when ever there is irving

  • Pete Roces

    we can’t do anything about it, sorry folks, NBA has done it again, no Linsanity 2.0…..Lin is just a scrub.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • Tim Pham

    lin is totally killing in the little time he’s given. im not hoping for anything, reality is bs wishes lin never played. the lakers still suck,

  • Frank

    chill im not gona do it

  • ETC

    I think that is prefered

  • sport

    Lin with the least minutes again!! It’s a miracle he had 5 pts, 2 rebounds, 2 assists in 6.58 minutes!

  • BobbyH

    Why?

  • JW

    what? had to do something earlier and I missed Lin already? crap

  • Rick Johnson

    Only way JLin gets to play is if Price is in foul trouble or breaks his nose.

  • Frank

    So how is everyone dealing with their angers?

  • Tim Pham

    kobe would stop for a white girl…sorry if joke is too racy for families lol

  • Frank

    well im wishing injuries on him idc

  • sport

    Nose won’t do it knee or ankle maybe.

  • JW

    so close game. I thought LAL were down bad early. Did 2nd unit bring it back again?

  • Tim Pham

    im not angry. how can u get angry at something that you already know will happen? i just laugh at how mad they must feel that lin plays good in the little time they try to play him to make him look bad..look price get burned, lakers suck..i laugh

  • Pete Roces

    Jeremy, just stay healthy and preparing yourself for next team. LA is done.

  • with patience… I’m just waiting for Chronos to visit

  • LW

    Lin 2-3 2ast 2 reb but only 7 min. BS is really afraid to win!

  • Frank

    nah achillies

  • ETC

    Praying

  • webattorney

    I must say Kobe is passing pretty well this game. He might end up with 20 assists.

  • Pete Roces

    not angry at all……….FU LA!!!

  • cshot

    lin comes in the latest, gets pulled out first.. lakers

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs have terrible defense

  • Dorothy

    or BS is really afraid of Kobe being mad at him for not restrict Lin

  • CaliUSMC

    wtffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

  • Frank

    oh how noble
    all i can thik of is how i wud torture Byron and make him suffer both physically and mentally

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    what

  • only 2 TOs so far

  • sport

    What are the chances Kobe and Price will both drop like flies this game due to over playing to prove themselves?

  • Frank

    damn im too young to have any patience

  • sws94

    What’s going on with Ellington?

  • CaliUSMC

    7mins is not cool…

  • sport

    Either getting ready for trade or, in the doghouse. I think it’s the later.

  • Pete Roces

    I retweet everything Ido Amir tweets, its more meaningful and I am not watching the game, pointless.

  • Brent Yen

    Not really…I think it was pretty even

  • probably sitting too close to Lin

  • sws94

    This is one of Kobe’s best games. He’s playing very well.

  • Alaingrvis

    the whole bench is playing less I’ve notice

  • webattorney

    Yes. And he’s shooting pretty well. Must be the National TV. 15+ assists against any team is pretty good.

  • cshot

    omg best comment ever

  • blubell
  • blubell

    lol

  • webattorney

    Agreed. I guess he wanted to show LeBron that he can still play.

  • webattorney

    Nothing wrong with having some ego. That’s not something Amir should attack.

  • golfhacker

    He hasn’t played bad, considering his mins. I’m guessing trade.

  • MomentousPetey

    David Blatt don’t teach defense huh?

  • Rick Johnson

    Did the marginalization of Lin start after that incident when Kobe told Lin to “get the f… out of the way”?

  • Alaingrvis

    price will play 34 minutes today

  • MoominFloren

    91 days……..Lin will be out from this ugly organization

  • Tim Pham

    bs doesn’t like lin simple as that

  • blubell
  • MomentousPetey

    Agree, “some” ego. =)

  • Brent Yen

    He was not aware and was ball watching..

  • That’s why Lin is out of the job in LA.
    Kobe 32+min as the PG

  • ETC

    Bs chooses his players based on subjective like and dislike. Nothing to do with quality play. That is why he will never beva good coach

  • golfhacker

    Talking about Ellington here.

  • MomentousPetey

    Lin don’t wanna play with Bryant either..=)

  • Alaingrvis

    idk if you notice but lin played little even when kobe sat

  • CaliUSMC

    I think it was a little after that… but pretty close.

    Kenny and Chuck needs to speak the truth about this mistreatment!!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Kobe’s frozen parody did it!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Am I allowed to call Kobe names now?

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs playing 3 vs 5

  • LW

    Who wants to play with Kobe?

  • Briiick

    not on his, but on Kome’s.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is trying to convert Nick… say no to hogging 🙂
    https://twitter.com/kianainhi808/status/555947836412411904

  • webattorney

    I mean if you (Ido) are going to criticize, you should pick something worthy. Criticizing Kobe for wanting to “pump his ego” is NOT worthy, and makes Ido look petty.

  • they probably just say Kobe reinvents himself as PG and Lin is out of the running for the PG job

  • ETC

    Sure. Mamba ,black mamba, kobe , Bryant

  • CJSHYY

    What’s their face expression? Mad or not? I turned off the TV when Lin was not on… smh! I am mad.

  • Briiick

    Kobe doesn’t want to play with any top players, unless he was forced to by PJ.

  • joyce ward

    Calm down everybody, this is Hollywood. This is the LBJ/Kobe rematch and everybody else is insignificant. Trust me, there are scouts in the Laker audience and they like what they see from Lin. Remember the contending teams are looking for assets to shore up their bench. Scouts know that lin is being marginalize. so i refuse to get caught in kobe/scott’s drama anymore. i will just follow lin and watch things unfold.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not what I had in mind of course.

  • CJSHYY

    I think Scott did it on purpose to limit Lin & Young’s playing time… Even Kelly played more min than Lin & Young?!

  • Briiick

    Kobe can’t stand any good one in HIS backcourt.

  • BobbyH

    Exactly. National TV show. What’s bigger than that in this entertaining business. Just looked at the rigged TNT vote.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s for sure. I know Lin is always the target but now even Young too?!

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, we’re disappointed and want to be entertained. Lakers have no future with kobe. Lin has no future there imho.

  • Brent Yen

    What lin is doing is trying to have the total number of his points and assists more than his minutes played in every game while maintaining his fg% as much as possible. Full audition mode…..basically

  • joyce ward

    Lin/Young are the two players that are getting the press from Laker office. If you notice, they are still handing out the Lakers magazine with Lin on the cover. Also lin had 96% of the cam votes. This is not going unnoticed by the F/O. So let LBJ/Kobe have their little show down because nobody cares because both their teams have the worst record in the league. It will just be one more kudo to massage kobe’s ego.LOL

  • Briiick

    Sure, anyone that can shoot in the backcourt, including Clarkson.

  • grover chang

    I have a short commute home. I get in the car, Lin is in. I get home and he is already benched. I better not go to the bathroom in the second half or I’ll miss Lin completely tonight.

  • joyce ward

    Is that true

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    The only good backcourt in Kome eyes is the one who can’t shoot (think of Rondo, Price ).

  • Rick Johnson

    Kobe will choke in the 4th quarter. Always does.

  • james brown

    it is to limit explosiveness of 2nd unit!

  • BobbyH

    And Lakers bench was against Cavs starters for a chuck of time.

  • blubell
  • Pete Roces

    LOL, nice one

  • joyce ward

    The joke around the NBA is that lakers 1st unit is masquerading as starter, when the real starters are the bench. One of the journalist actually wrote that. LOL

  • sport

    Even if Kobe goes out, Price will still get to start, rather wish Price out!!

  • joyce ward

    Yea they were.LOL

  • ETC

    For those of you with kids. You can point to kobe as to how not to act. Thank goodness jeremy lin exists. At least the jlin of today.

  • LW

    Of course, BS is trying to lose here. Hope they don’t win by accident!

  • Pete Roces

    Brick is the name of the game, keep bricking guys, I’m talking to you KB, NY, RP

  • CJSHYY

    Really? The other day Magic commentators also said Lin, Boozer, & Young all should start… ?!

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • Brent Yen

    Let’s hope so

  • Love Lin

    Just glue urself on the sofa..ha

  • LW

    Where is the 20 point lead?

  • Frank

    what if im the kid

  • BobbyH

    It is a shame that Kobe is going to leave his legacy in a negative note.

  • dons

    Price slashes to the basket, and …

  • webattorney

    Who wants to see Lin request openly (and respectfully) that he wants more PT or to be traded? Is that advisable?

  • kauaiblue

    Bring ur toilet out into living room. .. duh

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Love watching the 3rd Q when the LAL starters start to meltdown….:)

    Bench standby to the rescue..:)

  • Frank

    I do
    they will prolly just ignore him thou

  • blubell

    Scott still loves him.

  • ETC

    Learn from lin. To give is better than to receive.

  • BuzzerBeater

    some of these comments on Lakersground XD

    “Ronnie Price needs to be arrested for impersonating an NBA player. I am sure that its a felony in 9 states”

    LOLOL

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    OK, kobe will kill himself tonight and have to have 10 days to recuperate.LOL

  • blubell

    Only in 9 states?

  • Brent Yen

    Scott’s face after that airball…….

  • dons

    And now a badly missed 3.

  • BobbyH

    added another 3 air.

  • Maknusia

    as always

  • Wow.. Price just missed, TO and air-ball.

  • Frank

    Some people are just pure hating on Lin
    “Lin is garbage”
    “Why does Lin still have a job in this league”
    I dont know what game they are watching
    If I actually meet them in person I will try my best to beat them up
    just ridiculous
    I once insulted my friends mother because he was calling Lin out
    and most of the haters are…black i dont know why but just a trend

  • webattorney

    I literally laughed at Price’s two air balls. I mean I know Price is horrible at shooting, but he is too much. I actually feel sorry for Price because he sucks at shooting so much.

  • how? =)

  • blubell

    He’s going all out because this game is on TNT and he’s resting tomorrow and probably couple more games after that lol

  • Kyrie just left Price on the dust

  • Brent Yen

    Like a father watching his son shoots airball in an AAU game

  • LW

    Sure enough, Lakers loses the lead, as planned.

  • kittyhead

    BS must enjoy what Price brings now.

  • Yascar

    Since he’s been benched that’s kind of the way I’ve been judging his game. He’s doing well so far.

  • Maknusia

    is only they could give a little more minutes to the second unit, they would be far by now

  • sport

    Several times already with no screen, just embarrassing!!

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Byron on Price Airball: “That was a practice shot”

  • sport

    Price has 3 fouls, hope he gets 2 more!!

  • BuzzerBeater

    He hustled on that airball!

  • Dorothy

    LAL may go after Bev off season as starting “PG”, he does much better job than Price LOL

  • David Kim

    Love D is laughable. LOL

  • he’s gonna try too hard to compensate and hurt himself.
    It’s BScott’s responsibility if that happens

  • Alaingrvis

    back spasm

  • blubell

    love him no matter what.

  • BobbyH

    Charmin shot.

  • Brent Yen

    This is true

  • kittyhead

    He airballed with so much toughness and energy.

  • webattorney

    Let’s be serious; Bev does a lot better job than Price. I am not even putting up Bev when I say Bev is twice the player that Price is. Bev can actually make those corner 3s.

  • Maknusia

    and kobe?

  • Tim Pham

    they think they own the nba or something. insecurity coming out.

  • Tim Pham

    cavs d suck. why would you double and triple kobe ? let him try to beat you shooting. he’s shooting like 38 percent

  • kittyhead

    Still the precious head of the snake.

  • MomentousPetey

    Blatt’s gotta put someone on Hill, lol

  • BobbyH

    His arms wave higher.

  • Briiick

    What a fit backcourt for Kobe !

  • sport

    They were double teaming Price and I was like, he’s not Lin guys LOL.

  • webattorney

    Seriously, Bev is much, much better player than Price.

  • Frank

    yikes
    its just one asian guy so unneccesary

  • Maknusia

    he is racking up his AST today

  • sport

    No defense, Kyrie and Hill cancelling each other out with 18 points LOL. No wonder the Cavs are so bad!!

  • Frank

    nah id rather byron kill himself

  • blubell
  • nodomo

    Elllington must seriously be in the dog house – DNP-CD last game and looks to be the same this game

  • Dorothy

    and commentator was saying Hill is a much underrated player LOL

  • sport

    What all this hating on Lin, you’d thin he have some anger and things to prove when he face these teams again. I have yet to see Lin give Rockets a beat down with 30+ points. If he ever faced Kobe and Lakers again I hope he finally goes 40+ points on them!!

  • Maknusia

    Bench time

  • webattorney

    Price doesn’t want to take shots even when he’s open because he knows he sucks.

  • Cavs don’t look like a team at all.
    Kyrie with 5 TOs already

  • occupatio

    this is just streetball

  • Maknusia

    Lin is IN

  • webattorney

    Yeah, what’s up with Ellington? Weird stuff.

  • Maknusia

    lets push the lead now

  • sport

    OMG Finally , Lin is in!! ><"

  • but Kobe is still in so … yeah not getting any ball soon

  • sport

    Black with 4 fouls, so much for “more minutes” for playing well BS is dumb, too bad that wasn’t Price with 4 fouls. Kyrie should just charge at Price for 2 quick fouls, he’s a star, will get the call his way! =P

  • webattorney

    You will see Lin play for 7 or 8 minutes for around 14 minutes.

  • JJ Hui

    I noticed now we cannot see who upvote our comments, i saw the vote going up but not knowing who upvote me. What changed into something not fun anymore?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lol, lin in kobe starts shooting not passing

  • Frank

    typical
    hes insecure

  • CaliUSMC

    Kobe 15 asts? wtfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

  • occupatio

    exactly

  • Maknusia

    at least he is passing

  • Frank

    I do not like Byron or Price

  • Briiick

    They only have one legit star, the other two are only good for stats and shows who have never carried their teams to the playoff.

  • CJSHYY

    He always like that… w Price he AS but w Lin he shoot.. smh!

  • sport

    Lin better shoot! Don’t pass to Kobe, forget the insecure ego maniac!

  • MoominFloren

    You sure?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hill makes jump shots

  • 15assists is really good but I’d like to see him pass to Lin once or twice here

  • sport

    Yes Kobe OUT!!

  • BobbyH

    Kobe 7 minutes to go for 32 hard limit. Oh wait, it is a national TV game, let’s make an exception.

  • Frank

    in our wildest dreams lool

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LeBron: I’m sick and you’re old. We make good this game. Let’s not rush it.
    Kobe: I like this game. We can walk to the front court.

    LeBron and Kobe are cool!

  • David Kim

    Lin 2-3 5pts 2assts in 7min
    Price 1-5 5pts 1assts in 26min

    Kobe and Scott really doesn’t like Lin…

  • BuzzerBeater

    totally something Stu would say

  • sport

    LOL Lebron and starters playing mostly against the bench?!

  • Maknusia

    Young is in

  • ETC

    I say keep kobe in. Tire him out.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a sick game of basketball.

  • Maknusia

    too late

  • MoominFloren

    yep…..can end this drama a little bit sooner

  • Singapore BB Fan

    So Lin only gets in with leftover minutes….

  • Maknusia

    lol, thats because Kobe is running the PG

  • Alaingrvis

    14-16 minutes for lin

  • Lin had a great anticipation of LeBron passing to Marion.
    Too bad it’s a foul

  • Maknusia

    we notice that! 🙂

  • Frank

    Lin dont pass jesus

  • Singapore BB Fan

    again…CAV Starters vs. LAL Bench

  • ETC

    he needs to get what he can

  • CaliUSMC

    STRONG DRIVE LIN

  • Nice attack by Lin!

  • Pete Roces

    Lin no pass – bench, Lin scores- bench, Lin taking over – DNPCD, Lin sucks – stays on court, which one you prefer?

  • Maknusia

    need def!…Cav is pushing the lead

  • Maknusia

    finally good FTs

  • blubell

    Good.. made both!

  • Brent Yen

    Did lin made both?

  • CaliUSMC

    YEZ

  • Pete Roces

    Jeremy please dont go into Linsanity mode, you will be benched and led to DNP-CD

  • Brent Yen

    7pts…Scott is mad now

  • blubell

    He’s always mad

  • occupatio

    nick is trying to match lebron’s 3. lol

  • ETC

    I would enjoy some linsanity right now

  • kittyhead

    Get 10 plz!!!!!!!!!!! Go OLinnnnnnnnnnn!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    young 2-7

  • joyce ward

    Let lin play his game. Even if he gets benched, he will be out of this kobelite organization soon.

  • Frank

    Lin scores- bench

  • Brent Yen

    Four more minutes, let’s go!! lin!!

  • Frank

    whynt u shoot Lin? jesus

  • webattorney

    Bad pass there by Lin. He should have lobbed it softly there. Or a miscommunication.

  • Rick Johnson

    Put Ellington in for Young.

  • occupatio

    got doubled off the pick

  • cshot

    lol look at BS shaking his head and being a little girl after lin passed it to butterfinger boozer

  • JW

    was he going cross court and boozer tipped it?

  • BobbyH

    BS, don’t shake your head. It is your quarter Princeton offense that causes the TO. Too predicable.

  • MoominFloren

    Hmm…….maybe Lin should learn from Nash to carry a grocery bag

  • webattorney

    I thought Lin was trying to pass to Boozer, but the pass was too strong. It was neither this nor that.

  • occupatio

    i dont think so on first impression

  • blubell
  • sport

    Come one Lin, take the contested last shot instead of dishing it to Boozer for a TO! SMH ><"

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hidden Agenda….just to make JLin looks bad….

  • occupatio

    bs used to like ellington a lot. now what?

  • Frank

    yah i overreacted

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    He got kelly and black

  • orLinaryjoe

    Why is Price +2, and Lin -6? Anyone?

  • Charlie Sun

    Welp, 4th qtr time. Enjoy 6 more min with JLin

  • Frank

    Lin make a 3 and 3 more assits then go rest let the lakers lose

  • occupatio

    i like kelly too but this is extreme

  • JW

    maybe ellington spoke up for Lin and pissed off bs

  • Maknusia

    i think even prior to those 2 coming in to lineup, Ellington time had been reduced

  • CaliUSMC

    STRONG DRIVE LIN X2

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Good match up…CAV has respect for JLin….fielding James and Love verses JLin and Kelly

  • sport

    Yes Lin to the rim!!

  • occupatio

    sacre has been perma-benched. not that i mind, just saying those guys are totally out of the rotation now

  • blubell

    Uh oh 😛

  • Maknusia

    nice layup…he is listening to @Frank:disqus

  • blubell
  • Pete Roces

    Kindly change your profile picture, Mak, I’m having a stomach ache when I look at it….

  • Brent Yen

    LAL has no solution for LBJ

  • Charlie Sun

    You know, if JLin reaches a point where he averages a point a minute, people are really going to start wondering why he’s on the bench

  • Frank

    1 more point

  • Pete Roces

    Price to the rescue!

  • Maknusia

    had high hopes! sigh!

  • occupatio

    yeah wes is worse than kelly for that

  • CaliUSMC

    HI RIRI

  • blubell

    Nobody is passing to Jeremy…

  • Alaingrvis

    bye riri

  • joyce ward

    it’s time for lin to get his own rebounds and score. LOL

  • webattorney

    Only reason Cav will win is because of LeBron.

  • Charlie Sun

    Kelly wanted to, but the passing lane closed pretty fast

  • CaliUSMC

    GOOD D BY LIN ON LEBRONIE

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin stops LeBron!

  • webattorney

    Yeah.

  • Alaingrvis

    why is lin on lebron

  • Maknusia

    that was a bad 3secV to

  • 311

    Kelly foul trouble I guess?

  • Brent Yen

    They went for zone defense

  • Alaingrvis

    lin guarded lebrun pretty well but why is he on lebron

  • kittyhead

    or a steal for one-man fastbreak!

  • Rick Johnson

    Did well, refs stole that one from Lakers

  • sport

    Lin just needs to take the shot even when doubled!

  • Alaingrvis

    wow

  • Brent Yen

    Zone d

  • Tim Pham

    haha i’m surprised lebron faded away on lin…thought he would use his strength..go lin

  • webattorney

    Lin played pretty well this game given his minutes. Maybe he could have scored 2 more points, but that’s it.

  • Alaingrvis

    wow kelly black in foul trouble so lin is on lebron lol

  • blubell

    I saw that but what was Young’s excuse lol

  • grover chang

    I think Lin got tired of watching Lebron do whatever he wanted.

  • Tim Pham

    dude lin played excellent in his minutes…10 mins is not really 10 mins…swaggy hogged a bit too much too..he had sporadic chances..converted on most..

  • blubell
  • ETC

    Go jeremy!

  • sport

    Come on Lin, score some 3s to get 18/20 points before BS benches you!!

  • Alaingrvis

    ohh ok

  • 311

    Lol, I really don’t know. Just a wild guess.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Told u three times..down there..lol

  • nodomo

    Ronnie and Kobe both on the bench and both still tied for team lead in minutes at 26 min.

  • CaliUSMC

    NICE PASS LIN!

  • blubell

    NIce!

  • sport

    Great pass by Lin!!!

  • What a great assist by Lin and Black to finish! And-1!

  • ETC

    praying for 5 more points

  • Charlie Sun

    Deja vu! Black again

  • CaliUSMC

    CHANTING KOBES NAME? SMH

  • Kobe has 26 min. He should enter at 6min to reach 32

  • Charlie Sun

    No charge call?

  • Brent Yen

    Lin was not at the position

  • CaliUSMC

    THAT WAS IN YOUNGS FACE lol

  • blubell

    That was BS.

  • deesee5

    Crowd wanting Kobe? Lol no matter how bad Kobes been playing LA forever loves him

  • webattorney

    That was a charge. Correct call.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes

  • blubell

    And game over…

  • Alaingrvis

    lin done

  • Mr Chuckles

    No it wasn’t. Love’s left foot was on the restricted arc.

  • occupatio

    lebron and others showboating for rihanna

  • John Lee

    I want Kobe too, to shoot the last shot before losing the game.

  • Charlie Sun

    15 min. The trend is real.

  • deesee5

    Barely tuned in and Lin looked good from like the 2-3 mins I seen him play.

  • grover chang

    Yep, they leave that out on the replay.

  • If there’s OT, will Byron play Kobe more than 32 min?

  • webattorney

    Didn’t see that; just saw the top half.

  • blubell

    At least NBA noticed Jeremy’s nice pass.
    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/555964889668128768

  • Brent Yen

    It was not on tv, I can not tell. I thought he lifted his heel

  • Tim Pham

    lin did excellent in 15 mins..amazing actually..the charge was lin trying to take one last shot because he knew he would be subbed out..still great agressive move. eff bs..if lin didn’t attack he’d still be taken out…lin did great..lost because lebron is too good

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Ok, James and Love now are tired….can’t do much….time for LAL starters to come on stage and “shine”…bye bye JLin…

  • webattorney

    So, how many minutes is that total for Lin?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    14:51m

  • Alaingrvis

    15

  • blubell

    14 minutes… is this the season low?

  • Brent Yen

    15

  • sport

    Do you need to ask?

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • webattorney

    Ha, ha, I was close. I said 14 minutes. I guess 15 is the norm for Lin.

  • Charlie Sun

    Crazy times we live in

  • Love Lin

    less than 15min., 16 min. for the last game.. getting less thou.. 🙁

  • Frank

    Can Byron Scott just fking die already

  • nodomo

    this is truly crazy and insane what is happening to Lin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well I presume it will be 12 minutes in this game. Glad JLin did well with the minutes that he played.

  • he promised Kobe not to play in OT once he reaches 32.
    It’ll be interesting if he has no qualms breaking it

  • Briiick

    Time to go to the bed guys. Don’t forget to vote for Lin in ASG !

  • Frank

    Lin should have shot more

  • occupatio

    reminds me of those mchale benchings on nationally televised games…

  • LW

    Lin is -12, how come?

  • blubell

    Insanity….

  • Charlie Sun

    Head of snake will have the team high minutes from doing something in BS eyes

  • Maknusia

    but the bench played bad today, except Lin…they lost the lead

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Please refrain from cursing. Thanks!

  • blubell

    Lebron James

  • Lymania

    Let it tank~let it tank~can’t hold it back anymore~let it tank~~~~~~~

  • Alaingrvis

    lol true

  • Singapore BB Fan

    whichever way….JLin is the scapegoat….If LAL would to lose this game…all becos of JLin and the bench…if LAL would to win…its becos of Price and Kobe…they came in for the rescue…

  • Frank

    sorry the frustration is real

  • sport

    Lin was too nice, look to dish out assist to Black and Boozer and for what?!

  • Briiick

    Lebron is so much like a bigger Lin.

  • MomentousPetey

    teammates unable to contain James

  • grover chang

    Unless Lin gets to guard Lebron, then he goes 0-2, scoreless!

  • blubell

    Poor OLin.

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Funny that JLin is playing with Cav’s starters esp LBJ.

  • Charlie Sun

    I have had it with these god damn snakes on this god damn team

  • occupatio

    cant even get mad. this is just absurd.

  • Pete Roces

    relax, he will surely go that path one day…..

  • LeBron made a run going solo vs 2nd unit. Young has -12 too now
    No Kyrie to turn over the ball

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just saw ree play, Kevin love foot was on the restricted line

  • golfhacker

    So Kobe now PG and Wes SG? SMH.

  • Brent Yen

    No his heel,was not..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    KB definitely doesn’t want to play with JLin.

  • Charlie Sun

    Lol Kobe TO, and a really big reach by Kobe (no call)

  • Byron is following a movie script for Kobe.
    Lin has no part

  • blubell
  • FrankW

    Team drop 10 points with Lin in.

  • blubell
  • JJ Hui

    Where is Ellington?

  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • Tim Pham

    so obvious kobe is “hogging” to get assists. stat-padding.

  • occupatio

    nick is like harden falling down on 3s all the time looking for fouls

  • nodomo

    Lin looked pretty dejected during the timeout. Didn’t want to get up off the bench to join the team

  • Singapore BB Fan

    HAHAhahahaha….

  • MoominFloren

    You know the answer……good night AJ

  • Maknusia

    far far away

  • LW

    Calm down! Remember the coach is trying to lose not to win.

  • Pete Roces

    We are all deceived by KB’s friendly gesture towards Lin during the earlier part of the season. Very few sees it coming….

  • Tim Pham

    it’s actually not so bad . lin is making everyone look bad by playing so well in few minutes…lakers lose…lin can save his body for free agency….cash his money..of course we would love lin to play 30+ mins and be a pg..but this is best he can do in this situation

  • Mr Chuckles

    He got Uncle Drew’d.

  • Briiick

    That’s why we like Lin, who always tries to play the right basketball.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    That is RESPECT…

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    Kobe with 16 assist with the ball in his hands every play and moving slow. Kobe became the new Kendall Marshal

  • occupatio

    it is actually pretty bad, including for free agency

  • occupatio

    lol

  • Tim Pham

    i hope lin realizes it’s a no-win situation. he plays crazy well and cannot get 15 mins..what more does he have to do? at this point, it’s not even about bball

  • deesee5

    Did anybody see that Lexus commercial? Dude looked a lot like Paul Walker!

  • Alaingrvis

    price out no lin

  • MomentousPetey

    ya thats been around for a while now..

  • joyce ward
  • true, the best thing he can do it to keep good stats w/ high efficiency so teams know he’s underutilized.
    Just need to stay healthy and wait his chance.

    Trade would be good, I think since new interested team will utilize him more

  • blubell

    another low for BS.

  • FrankW

    Off to bed I’m going too, no Lin no watch. So much BS. sweet dreams everyone.

  • Maknusia

    so he found his new role!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    was that Harden?

  • JJ Hui

    Hey, we all are frustrated too! I want to eject BS and STUpid to the moon and they can enjoy their wonderful time there! LOL!

  • Charlie Sun

    Almost another TO. This rotation is nothing new. Just very very TO prone

  • Mr Chuckles

    Actually, his heel was down when contact was made and lifted afterwards as he took the contact.

  • Alaingrvis

    young finish game 3-11

  • Alaingrvis

    lin sits 3-4

  • sport

    0 fouls on Kobe, only player playing 0 defense throughout the game!!

  • Charlie Sun

    Gotta keep feeding Young huh?

  • Lymania

    What’s next? It should only getting better if this is the worst we are seeing here. Hm…truly unexpectable season.

  • Brent Yen

    Cavs are toying LAL….

  • Mr Chuckles

    I take it Silver Screen & Roll are not Price fans.

  • blubell
  • deesee5

    Wouldn’t know. Haven’t watched tv for some time. I catch these games once in awhile lol

  • MomentousPetey

    Only Lin haters are Price fans

  • David Kim

    Defense specialist Price hurts the team again. Price 5pts 1assts in 27mins Irving 22pts 3assts in 35mins.

  • sport

    With Lebron laughing at Kobe at the timeout.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep it was over at 4 minutes left

  • Maknusia

    I wont blame Price, its Coach decision

  • Pete Roces

    19 year veteran with 5 rings no need to defend, full support from LA’s top to bottom, no worries. Is KB qualify to be a HOF?

  • occupatio

    aside from lebron kobe nick trying to showboat, no one is really trying.

  • LW

    Good execution Scott! 1 down 42 to go!

  • occupatio

    i always feel pretty dumb when i watch this long. why why why

  • Charlie Sun

    Watch Kobe take all the shots now

  • joyce ward
  • sport

    Price is so great that he’s out during crunch time LMAO.

  • TK Wong

    Did anyone else see the no call – clear charge when Jeremy was knocked down playing defense In the lane ? Then bad charge call against Lin when Love’s foot still touching the circle line in the paint? Refs applying double standard again. Crazy.

  • Alaingrvis

    3-12

  • Maknusia

    NYoung is really having trouble with his shots

  • occupatio

    whos counting? haha

  • Alaingrvis

    this is the kobe show

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! But he is close out the game? smh!

  • Charlie Sun

    Great D by Kobe? Commentators drunk

  • Tim Pham

    makes sense…tank and let kobe do a farewell tour…

  • Mr Chuckles

    Yeah, I was surprised the no-call wasn’t a blocking foul on Lin the way the refs were calling things.

  • occupatio

    BS thinks nick can turn hot any time. its so funny

  • deesee5

    That was! Lebron couldn’t get past Kobe and he went to shoot but missed.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Not sure how many of us here are hoping LAL to lose this game?

  • occupatio

    the MVP chants. bleh

  • CJSHYY

    I am. Hope they make the shot.

  • Charlie Sun

    Don’t have to hope. I know 😉

  • Alaingrvis

    all

  • MoominFloren

    Me!!!

  • Mr Chuckles

    I was hoping for OT.

  • Tim Pham

    kobe will have one of these games every 10, that is if his body can even hold up..and guess what? they will still lose…lakers are trying to tank, let kobe enjoy the farewell tour,

  • CJSHYY

    Lakers fans did that all the time.. no big deal!

  • grover chang

    Maybe we could get overtime and Lin plays 2 more minutes.

  • blubell

    And this is why Scott lets Young on the court… Kobe’s orders.
    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/555969932706320385

  • deesee5

    Ok so I only pretty much saw just the 4th qtr. Lin played well, Kobe played pretty well too. Swaggy killed the game for me.

  • ETC

    Kobe is the driver and nick is ms daisy

  • Frank

    Lin doesnt even look pissed being dissed like this
    mans got off the bench cheering for this shyt team
    thats too much man

  • Tim Pham

    haha me too. like exercising, i keep saying i’ll start next time.

  • Charlie Sun

    Kobe is proud of Kobe Jr

  • JJ Hui

    I mean is he sitting on the bench or not there at all?

  • Pete Roces

    Job well done, tanking mode still on.

  • KHuang

    I saw it coming 3 seasons ago!

    When Lin was on the Knicks, I was writing that I didn’t want Lin playing on a Kobe team.

    I wrote for the last three seasons that Kobe would never let Lin touch the ball and would scream at Lin for mistakes made by others.

    I was right then and I’m right now.

  • Brent Yen

    Kobe defended like Beverley…….and it worked…….for LBJ of course

  • Alaingrvis

    he seem to be pissed by the fact he is showing zero interest in the game

  • Frank

    he shud be proud

  • Alaingrvis

    a lot of activity yet zero impact

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lakers losing, yay!

  • MomentousPetey

    LOL

  • deesee5

    Telling you no matter how bad Kobe been playing, LA still loves him!

  • Charlie Sun

    He’s like a lazier Beverley

  • Alaingrvis

    is it me or did kobe just start playing defense

  • CJSHYY

    Of course everything it’s from Kobe… smh!

  • KHuang

    Stop with the ridiculous posts.

    You are being negatively influenced by the Lin haters on jeremylin.net.

    Just stay here and appreciate Lin’s intelligent efficient approach.

  • Lin’s a stand-up guy.
    Noone can blame him for being a great teammate

  • occupatio

    he only tries to play D on lebron

  • Pete Roces

    I will never respect Kobe Bryant the way I respect Michael Jordan. They are miles apart…..not even close, specially after how he treats a good person in Lin.

  • grover chang

    Well I doubt Kobe going to play tomorrow in Utah.

  • Alaingrvis

    well mj wasn’t good at treating people as well

  • CJSHYY

    He will not..

  • Job713

    Chronic sleep deprivation staying up watching these west coatst games not worth it. I’m done with it. Back to watching DVR version and fast forward the non Lin bits.

  • yup, that’s it

  • deesee5

    I was about to point that out! Lol

  • occupatio

    ive seen this movie before.

  • Yura

    Aw.. didn’t work today :/

  • blubell

    Lots of fast forwarding…

  • Pete Roces

    but still KB is the worse one…

  • blubell

    He likes the attention.

  • sport

    See Lin, how hard is it to just stop and pull up for a 3 pointer like Young? Just shoot more and pass less, cause people won’t respect you unless you get high PPG average!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL I did see it very quickly during startergate but confirmed it in the beginning of the season.

  • KHuang

    But Michael Jordan knew when he crossed the line of bad behavior.

    Besides, Michael Jordan had so much more game than Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    he will not but still lin won’t play a lot

  • JJ Hui

    Me!

  • Yascar

    Thank you Cavs! I didn’t want LAL to win this one!!!

  • Frank

    well they already dont respect him

  • CJSHYY

    He is not allow to do it.. Kobe & Scott didnt’ want to let him do it.

  • MomentousPetey

    stop putting your insecurities on him…smh

  • Frank

    he needs to yell at teammates and coach

  • joyce ward

    Please people know that lin is being marginalized because of kobe.

  • Yura

    YES YES YES YE SYES I tried watching the online ones to hear opposing commentator in the past but failed …. wish we can listen to these commentators every game!!!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lebron > Kobe

  • KHuang

    Lin can be pissed at the coach but cheering on his teammates.

  • occupatio

    for those two, they dont really care that much about who wins this one. its just a one-on-one fun mini game for them.

  • KHuang

    Kobe got LIT UP as usual.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    com’on give up…

  • Pete Roces

    great point!

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! So glad Cav won!!!

  • KHuang

    Stop.

    Do you know how INSANE you sound criticizing Lin for 3-4 shooting??

  • Singapore BB Fan

    is LAL trading Ellington? DNP?

  • KHuang

    NO.

    Lin needs to keep being a great teammate so that he can put up great numbers and hopefully get to a new team.

  • joyce ward

    I don’t think that is true, they are more afraid than anything. Lin has proven he is no scrub. Anyway who care about Scott/ Kobe. Lin will be long gone when kobe finally gets re injured or his boy completely fails and Scott is fired and blamed for all of the Lakers woes.LOL

  • Frank

    really hope bad things happen to scott
    and did u guys see how pissed ronnie was?

  • CJSHYY

    More like they tried to trade Hill.

  • sport

    Or just wait for offense and defense highlights from this channels, few days after each day! https://www.youtube.com/user/ christinecheng60

  • occupatio

    what was ronnie mad about?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    tot Ellington is shooting better than NYoung…

  • CJSHYY

    Who cares about him?

  • occupatio

    gossip gossip.

  • sport

    Lin played so few minutes that his offense and defense highlights are already up, opps nevermine.https:// http://www.youtube. com/channel/ UCM3cKJG-yHjy7bUrzY_GrvA

  • CJSHYY

    They tried to help Young on his poor shooting.. smh!

  • KHuang

    What you say applies to us West Coast fans too.

    Even though the Lakers are in our time zone, the poor stagnant lazy Lakers play when Lin’s not on the floor causes us to sleep during the game.

  • Frank

    with all due respect
    this team does not deserve Lin’s kindness
    they should all be damned to h3ll literally
    Lin was the best player oon the lakers tn
    nobody passed to him and coach gave him the least mins
    he cant put up good numbers like this

  • KHuang

    NOT LIN’S CALL.

    All he can do is maximize what few minutes he gets.

  • CJSHYY

    I believe it’s team highlight not only him…

  • sport

    Oh the scrub mad he was benched during crunch? Good!! His head is getting too big, dude really thinks he’s the head of the snake!!!

  • Pete Roces

    @AsianHawk78 @IdoAmir @lemonbar4948 @JLin7 @Lakers Granny Bryant's agenda: No one wins without me and no one outshines me, I'm the boss.— Azalea Lee (@ZeliMoua) January 16, 2015

    Just step down, old man, your time is up!

  • occupatio

    heat lol

  • KHuang

    Hopefully the scrub was mad at being OUTPLAYED BY LIN.

  • Frank

    this is the wort mistreatment of Lin ive ever seen
    im beginning to think Hou was fair to Lin
    if he continues to be treated like this
    Lin will be a career back up

  • blubell

    Highlights

  • sport

    Nope Christine channel only does JLin’s highlights. but I saw wrong, Heat uniform confused me haha.

  • sws94

    What a joke. Price over 30 minutes again , at least he scored tonight. Lin has less. Ellington again didn’t play while Young stunk it up. Byron should be fired. Now.

  • Frank

    Exactly
    then why still play nice to these disgraceful animals

  • KHuang

    If Lin’s a career backup, it will NOT be because of how the Lakers treated him.

    Any nonAsian player who puts up Lin’s production in Lin’s minutes would be handed a HEFTY CONTRACT and a starting position.

  • Frank

    not closing the game

  • JJ Hui

    Please dont forget, you are not living inside Lin’s body and his brain is not your’s!

  • Alaingrvis

    price was bench late so 27 minutes but not for lin

  • sport

    LOL opps, deva-ju!!

  • Frank

    exactly but wish Lin had that in him too

  • KHuang

    Because this is the NBA which is a TEAM SPORT and even Lin needs to play teamball so that he has passing targets when the traps engulf him like in this game.

  • sws94

    OK. But still. What’s with Ellington? How is Byron allowed to get away with total incompetence out there?

  • cindystar111

    those fans saying kobe just has no good teammate to play with are so delusional and blind, can’t they see the players or lineup that could outshine him are frozen on the bench by BS already. it’s kobe’s insecurity that loses so many games for the lakers.

  • golfhacker

    Yeah, now Price will play 35 mins next game.

  • KHuang

    Yup.

    For that, I am very grateful.

    I wouldn’t be Lin’s fan if he behaved the way Frank wants him to.

  • kittyhead

    She is a die-hard Lin fan!!

  • Frank

    i didnt forget we are excahnging opinions
    u can kindly leave
    Lin should yell at them thats what he shud do

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    At least Lin still gets to play. Ellington doesn’t get a chance now.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    They worthship Kobe to so long

  • KHuang

    That probably will change soon.

    Expect Lin to be PUNISHED for yet another stellar performance!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Great milestone…one step at a time…

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    wow…JLin -12….Bsc has a mathematician whispering in his ears….

  • Frank

    Okay but how many ppl actually play teamball
    not many

  • sport

    Did Lin honestly think that listening to BS and passing more would give him more minutes? He came out hot and should’ve just kept shooting!! Who cares what BS says, not like the hating and benching is going to change!! Lin needs to look out for himself!!

  • KHuang

    The Lakers ownership WORSHIPS Byron Scott because of his 80s championships as a player.

    Scott has told them that he needs better players than the ones he has, and the Lakers are going along.

  • cindystar111

    unbelievable, i guess swaggy is allowed to play because he sucks lately. only scrubs are allowed to play with kobe now to show how superior he is. if he’s a better leader and allow good players to shine along with him, they would have won a lot of games.

  • jolno

    This is a result of playing all his minutes against Lebron with Kelly defending Lebron LOL. The +/- for Lin tonight is very deceiving as a result.

  • Frank

    exactly eric bledsoe, collison
    thats true
    america is an ugly country
    so many haters

  • CJSHYY

    Thanks God, Lin made his first 2 shots otherwise he would be even worst… smh! They asked him to pass to Young but he just couldn’t make the shots…

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • Yascar

    Relax. Lin is doing well with the time he’s on the court.

  • grover chang

    Pretty good for a guy who was suppose to have zero points in the NBA

  • Maknusia

    his average seems to be 9pts 15min now! sigh

  • Charlie Sun

    Makes you wonder how many points JLin could have had if he got to shoot 13 times like Young.

  • blubell
  • Nice! .. I was hoping the JLinFoundation fundraising will be close to his total pts.
    It’ll be close on 1/19 LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    we would still lose

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Really? Crazy fans… smh!

  • blubell
  • Frank

    theres no need to tell lin what to do

    He is doing a good job being a wonderful teammate
    unfortunately the whole NBA community wants Lin to fail theres nothing we can do
    now i see why khuang said the NBA wants to eject Lin
    hes being obviously mistreated no one says a thing
    and ppl on twitter keep shytting on lin thats no basketball thats pure hate based on race
    american dream my azz
    its a very very ugly country
    of very disguting human beings
    hope china takes over this shytty country soon lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    There has to be a lot of bruises on Kobe’s @$$.

  • Pete Roces

    Stay the course, @JLin7! Take it easy. Do your job. Then FIND THE RIGHT TEAM. A bit more patience. As always: We've got your back! #TeamLin— Ido Amir (@IdoAmir) January 16, 2015

    Ido Amir, You’re really a great fan of Jeremy, we salute you! #TeamLin

  • cali7

    The only reason I can think of for BS playing Young so much when he is doing so horribly is that Young is one of the only people on the team that is under contract for next season.

  • Pete Roces

    o.O

  • CJSHYY

    That’s true also Kobe agreed to help him out for his poor shooting.

  • sport

    Sorry but China is a worst country than US, land of the free!

  • KHuang

    No, it would be DISASTER if China took over.

    The Chinese government would run the US into civil war within 2 years or less.

  • Frank

    at least Lin will take over lol

  • Brent Yen

    You better edit your comment

  • Frank

    let the us suffer for what theyve done to the asian residents

  • Pete Roces

    Ido Amir just unfollow @Lakers, I might as well unfollow mine too, just my small way to protest. LA you’re done, disgusting organization.

  • KHuang

    You are POSTING CRAZY STUFF.

    See all those uncalled fouls Dellavedova delivered to Lin? The traps too?

    When people don’t watch how opponents defend Lin, they criticize Lin’s hot shooting and passing like you do.

  • Love Lin

    Its been tough 4 Lin since he demoted as a bench. He always devotes his efforts to the play althou its w/the limited time. Got half season left, still hope Lin’ll get his starters back. If not, just get traded 2 the new team. Stay healthy n root 4 him, These r what weve been doing.

  • KHuang

    Sigh?

    That’s FREAKING LINPRESSIVE!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just relax guys. The NBA is a disgrace organization but let not carry away.

  • KHuang

    Relax.

    America is still a great country.

    Asians will always be mistreated here, but it could be a lot worse.

  • KHuang

    Oh, Kobe’s doing that only because Lin started it and Kobe wants to IMITATE LIN to get Lin’s success!

  • Alaingrvis

    less then haif left

  • Pete Roces

    Unfollowed @SerenaWinters @LakersReporter @MarkG_Medina Nothing personal guys. Just not interested in @Lakers anymore Waiting for Lin exit— Ido Amir (@IdoAmir) January 16, 2015

    Thumbs Up!

  • sport

    Refs are so bias that why he should’ve looked to shoot more off dribble 3s and mid range jumpers.

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I understand. All JLin fans are frustrated including me but we stay classy as JLin is.

  • KHuang

    Ever since Lin said that he wants to get Nick Young going, Kobe now wants to do the same.

    This is not about Kobe wanting to help Nick Young. This is strictly about Kobe trying to ONE UP LIN.

    The problem for Kobe is that it’s NOT WORKING!

  • Pete Roces

    If there is a ring for Tanking Champions, Byron Scott wouldn't have enough fingers and toes to wear them all.— Jackjack (@supjackjack) January 16, 2015

    LOL, so true

  • KHuang

    If Ellington could play point guard minutes, he’d be handed Lin’s role.

  • Chipdip

    That is 90 days too long… for his suffering fans

  • jolno

    Look for Ellington to start tomorrow night (the DNP-CD guy tonight lol) at Utah with Ronnie Price dominating the ball to pad little impact assists like Kobe did tonight. Lin will only be in to let Price catch a breath on the bench.

    At this stage I am convinced that BS is determined to phase Lin off the team. This could be his own idea or instructed by Kobe. After all, Kobe and BS are like the same person LOL. Kobe has completely shifted his focus into padding assists while dominating almost every Lakers offensive possessions when he is on the court. It worked tonight because the Cavs played NO DEFENSE and Hill was unconscious from outside but in the long run this is simply a recipe for disaster.

    Lin is still trying to play the right way throughout this whole mess which is really admirable. He could have scored 13 points while perfect from the field with only one turnover if the refs didn’t cheat him blatantly AGAIN. Look, the refs were even bailing Price out repeatedly but Lin still got shafted all the time. At least we got to watch Lin managed to stop Lebron after Young and Kelly repeatedly failed to do so. Hopefully, at least one team took note of Lin’s dominant performance tonight and offered him a contract in the off-season so that Lin can escape this poisonous environment.

  • blubell

    Jeremy’s post game interview

  • KHuang

    He WAS looking for those shots, but Lin was being BLUDGEONED out there with uncalled fouls to the point where he could not take those shots.

    Stop hating on Lin when opponents bash him illegally.

  • sport

    LOL never followed them in the first place.

  • KHuang

    It’s Scott’s idea, not Kobe’s.

    Scott phases Lin out whether Kobe is playing or not.

  • cindystar111

    hmm, i guess some people never grow up then. hard to imagine being with a person so childish/insecure/jealous. poor lin, let’s just hope he escape as soon as possible from this mess.

  • Maknusia

    i’m not saying in relative but as a whole, with that kinda production he should have been given more minutes

  • Rick Johnson

    Actually he has 84 post season points too so would actually be 3085 points.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol lin said pretty much when kobe is on I’m off so i got to see his assist

  • cindystar111

    me neither, never follow or join their forums too. never really like a team led by ballhog.

    My initial thoughts after watching Lakers games, esp this last one… pic.twitter.com/sqfZGIWBMs— chat alvarado (@aymchat) January 16, 2015

    Right on!

  • CJSHYY

    Did he look mad or upset? I can’t watch it… so upset by myself.

  • Alaingrvis

    more like idc attitude

  • joyce ward

    you guys just don’t get it about lin. I am very sure lin is not happy with his minutes, but lin is happy that he is becoming more efficient with the little time he plays. They way Scott/kobe are treating him, makes me think that F/O has already told them that they are not trading lin. So it is their little petty way of trying to get back at the F/O. Notice how they have stopped giving the bench a lot of minutes. Lin even less because he leads the bench.Lin/Boozer have been credited with the bench doing so well.Lin played well tonight.My question is why did LBJ and Kevin Love feel like they needed to play against the bench, because they knew they had to make sure lin would not take over the game against their bench. I was glad that they only had a 10 point lead against our bench lead by lin against LBJ/K-Love two of the best players in the league. That is some awesome respect for lin.

  • CJSHYY

    I think he knows Kobe did it on purpose to make him out of Lakers…

  • Frank

    my bad

  • Alaingrvis

    im 100 percent sure lin will not return to the lakers. pfv was way off

  • Yascar

    No he just looked ok. Let’s hope he doesn’t lose his spirit and keep playing aggressive.

  • sport

    If FO doesn’t care about Lin then there’s nothing he can do. Point is Mitch and Busses care more about Kobe than develop Lin who’s a marginalized star player!

  • Maknusia

    true…thus far he been great

  • CJSHYY

    Good. I hate what Kobe did to Lin but I got another idea… Let’s who can stay longer in the team then… really hate Kobe.

  • Alaingrvis

    three months he will just leave

  • Yascar

    Agree with you. Jeremy is going and I think he’s fine with it.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • sport

    Lets hope he goes to an Eastern team or the Spurs!

  • Rick Johnson

    Hope the Lakers will become pitiful like the Knicks when Lin leaves.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    the idc attitude i saw last year with the rockets i saw it this game. not involve in the game while on the bench. very uninterested

  • Maknusia

    Good one Ido…if more people to do this…it will show fans are fedup with the Organization

  • cindystar111

    they are already pitiful now. hope lin leaves this pitiful kobe team asap.

  • Alaingrvis

    the future is bleak

    Kobe on possibility of being shutdown: "It's tough. I want to play, but I understand management's position." #Lakers— Bob Garcia IV (@bgarcia90) January 16, 2015

  • Alaingrvis

    what are top teams for lin this offseason

  • CJSHYY

    Wait … what did he mean by management’s position?! Is he out soon?

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    True

  • Keith

    Joyce was right.

  • Alaingrvis

    knicks have zero player would you be ok with lin going there. i still think lin needs a big market

  • bolero

    maybe the this game is the last hurrah for him..

  • Tey Ling

    Does BoB Garcia knows something is brewing ie shutting Kobe in stages ASAP?

  • cindystar111

    no way, melo’s as insecure as kobe. no one wants to play with him too.

  • sport

    Yup, major respect from LBJ and K-Love for knowing who the true starters were! Bench play most if not all of their minutes against the starters! Lets hope you’re right about FO but at this rate, Lin’s not staying in LA.

  • Rick Johnson

    Knicks still have Melo. Don’t want Lin with Melo again.

  • blubell

    It’s a lot better than w Kobe or Harden.

  • Brent Yen

    [but I decide what they can ask]

  • bolero

    I noticed some of the team were playing their starter against Lakers bench..

  • Keith

    I think Lin should stay in LA. Kobe is about to end his career.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol average 12 mpg

  • cindystar111

    really fake, he’s the one responsible for their losing season but he acts like he’s the one carrying his teammates.

  • sport

    Only if Kobe + BS are out and what contract offer they will give him. But I doubt Lin can stand another year of Kobe + BS so he’s out.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Actually, the way Scott and Kobe are treating Lin makes it look more like that the Lakers are DONE WITH LIN and are already making space for next season’s max contract point guard.

  • CJSHYY

    So that’s why he & Scott didn’t want Lin to play too much now? smh! Hate them both!!!

  • cindystar111

    see, he means he’s too old to carry such a sorry team. when he’s actually one of the weakest in the team.

  • Brent Yen

    This one is really cool

  • Alaingrvis

    if the offseason was a game of tg lin needs to get on a plan and go to another state so lakers cant touch him

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    we have passed that already

  • Tey Ling

    Who is the “you guys”?

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s what I thought too. smh!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Neither.

    Lin looked DISINTERESTED.

    He regards himself as a spectator, not a participant.

  • joyce ward

    No, I think Mitch/F/O playing hardball with Kobe and he has nothing to bargain with. It is interesting when you are pushed into a corner. It is called the survival of the fittest. Mitch/Buss have 3 years to turn this team into contention before they are fired. Now Mitch is telling Kobe, it is you or me, and it;s not gong to be me., Mitch said i have lived to my end of the bargain, so it’s your turn. F/O realizes that nobody wants to come and play with him. So when he said I understand management’s position, it was more than him being shutdwon this season

  • kittyhead

    Pray Lin is going to a team coached by D’Antoni this summer.(crossed fingers)

  • cindystar111

    yeah, sorry excuses, only his fans would really fall for it. the rest of the laker circle just pretend to fall for it.

  • joyce ward

    I would be surprised if Lin was traded. I don’t think they will wave him because he is playing very well for that and all the fans know that Scott is not giving him the minutes to succeed.

  • Keith

    Lin said : Pretty much everytime Kobe is on the court, I would be on the bench… (HINT that Kobe doesn’t want to play w/ Lin?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVCu4xefrLc

  • CJSHYY

    Looks like FO wants Kobe to out of season ASAP. Ya! Do it now. So glad they lose today bc even less chance to make it to playoff so Kobe can out now.

  • KHuang

    NO HE WOULDN’T.

    The Kobe of 5 years ago would be playing just as poorly of the Kobe of today if he didn’t have max contract big men and Coach Phil Jackson protecting him.

    The last time Kobe didn’t have his max contract big men was 2006
    when Kobe forcibly ejected Shaquille O’Neal off the Lakers. Kobe barely got the Lakers into the playoffs and got kicked out in the 1st round. That was with Phil Jackson coaching, and Kobe did everything he could to undermine the team.

  • Alaingrvis

    where is dantoni coaching. hope he gets hired by anyone. lin follow. at this point we know one coach like lin

  • Yascar

    I prefer a contender in the east. Don’t care which except don’t want him to go back to NYK. Even if he gets 15 min PT he might just see the playoffs and get good experience. Not really sure which teams can get him though.

  • cindystar111

    not surprised, good players won’t make kobe looks good.

  • Tey Ling

    The MVP chants are set up to show FO that Kobe is needed? Otherwise why would BS mentioned it.

  • KHuang

    Love is NOT one of the best players in the NBA.

    He’s wildly overrated and has a lousy attitude too.

    That said, he is highly regarded even though I don’t like his game.

    To me, Jordan Hill and Kevin Love are the same bad player.

  • Brent Yen

    exactly

  • kittyhead

    It was reported he still has lots of passion for coaching. Really hope he and Lin could reunite this summer. (pray)

  • Rene#17

    Hahaha. Coach BS making more BS.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hope u r right Joyce. Really would like this sick drama ends yesterday.

  • Alaingrvis

    reports are he will be at denver.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! I think so.

  • John Lee

    D’Antoni or Pops, I’m not picky. 😉

  • joyce ward

    You need top stop drinking the Koolaid that Scott is trying to sell. I think there are two factions running in this Laker organization. One(being lead by Jeannie Buss, because she wants her brother out) and the long going Kobenites within the organization. If lin stays or goes is really up to him for whatever reasons. We are all just commentaries from the peanut gallery. The age old adage that I live by is “believe half of what you see and none of what you here”

  • Chipdip

    Frank, this is too much. I had a lousy night watching the game already and would not like to read this nonsense written from a Lin fan like you. Have some respect to that country please.

  • KHuang

    D’Antoni for me, no Popovich.

    Popovich is a superstar worshiping crusty old screamer who would be doing all isoball if his superstar wasn’t Tim Duncan who’s the most unselfish superstar in NBA history.

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    I don’t mean to be hash. Hope you understand

  • John Lee

    He’s still better than BS and McHale…combined. BTW, what do you think of Brad Stevens?

  • Tey Ling

    This sick drama has impacted my mood swings, not good for my health and upsetting my staff! Lol

  • Chipdip

    I hoep all Lin fans will unfollow as well

  • KHuang

    NO.

    If there is kool aid being imbibed, it’s the notion that the Lakers are building a future around Lin.

    If they really were serious about Lin, they wouldn’t be decreasing his minutes and saying nasty things about him in the press or shopping wildly for “better” point guards.

    Lin is a GONER – and likely much sooner than I had even thought.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    It is not me being right or wrong, it is just an opinion.Scoot/Kobe have made this organization look bad. Either way, I am just glad that Lin’s resolve has not been shaken.

  • CJSHYY

    I think so. Kobe wants that extend contract so bad.. that’s why he & Scott were so mean to Lin bc they knew FO want Lin … Kobe didn’t want anyone to come & also plays well on court. If no one comes then Lakers have to sign him again. IMO, it’s all about extend contract $$$$$ that Kobe is against Lin.

  • joyce ward

    No, this is about Scott having a job for next season. Scott care nothing about Kobe. Scott is always looking out for himself.

  • blubell
  • jolno

    BS looked a lot happier tonight in a loss where Kobe “performed” decently than the win against the Magic where Lin dominated. The agenda can not be any more obvious. It’s not about winning or losing for BS, it’s about making Kobe look good.

  • John Lee

    I’m surprised that many still don’t believe that the Lakers’ plan for this season is to tank and keep top 5 draft pick.

  • Tey Ling

    It is sad if Kobe can’t see BS’s motives?

  • jolno

    I guess you can kind of look at it this way. Lin is like the Lakers’ third string point guard now after Kobe (starter) and Price (backup) lol.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is trending @ #9… but Sacre #8? LOL.

  • KHuang

    I have followed Popovich ever since he was nearly fired for constantly screaming at his nonsuperstar players while he tanked the Spurs so that they could draft Duncan.

    I doubt that he’s any better than McHale or Scott.

    Brad Stevens? Until he starts GETTING RESULTS, I won’t regard him as a real NBA coach.

    The clueless way the Celtics play, it’s obvious that they’re underachieving for the talent they have. That’s a coaching problem, not a personnel problem.

    I see no reason why Brad Stevens would be a good coach for Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Who is on the list besides them & Kobe?

  • blubell

    refresh… you’ll see screenshot.

  • Alaingrvis

    celtics have a young pg lol if price a 31 year old free agent start over lin then a drafted pg sure will

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Then u shouldn’t watch Lakers game anymore:-) Few have decided stop watching Lakers game now.

  • John Lee

    Never said he was. Admittedly, I don’t know much about Stevens, but have seen others recommend him on this forum, hence the question.

    Who else besides D’Antoni (and Karl) would you consider to be a good coach for Lin?

  • joyce ward

    Are they shopping for PG’s or it is the some of the Kobenites doing this. The Lakers had an opportunity to trade lin for Rondo earlier in the season, but they chose to try to sell Nash. Look I am not saying that the Lakers want Lin, butt I am saying that Scott is a liar and he tries to confuse the issue, like he is doing what the F/O wants, but many times it it his own doing. Ex. he states that he talked to Mitch/Vitti that he was going to shut kobe down for the rest of the season, then he comes back the next day and says that the management doesn’t want to shut kobe down, and now it’s kobe saying that I understand the management’s position. So Scott gives off this false bravado like he is speaking for the Lakers F/O when he really isn’t. I said all of this to say, that I will wait and see how everything pans out.

  • KHuang

    I read nothing into this.

    Kobe has sung this song and dance before.

    Last time he said that he’d acquiesce to management’s desires, he went out and played so much bad basketball that he messed up his legs and came back only this season.

    So I’m not buying a word of what Kobe says. Never have, never will.

  • cindystar111

    yeah, they don’t want to win. or BS will be forced to play lin like mchale.

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Thanks. But why Sacre on the list? LOL!

  • jolno

    LOL. Try to ask the same question after the 3/19 bricking game and let’s see if Kobe’s answer would still be the same.

  • joyce ward

    No because Kobe doesn’t have a relationship with his father. Scott is acting like a father to him, something that , I think Kobe wants

  • cindystar111

    both he and kobe talk a lot of BS. all sound like jokes. i wonder if reporters/commentators are laughing at them secretly when tweeting about them.

  • KHuang

    I can’t say I can recommend anyone specifically.

    Most NBA coaches will mistreat Lin just because he’s Asian. I assume that all coaches hate Lin until proven otherwise.

    Eric Musselman would be a good coach for Lin. Musselman coached Lin for the D League Reno team. Musselman used Lin properly as Reno ran over everybody.

  • blubell

    exactly what I’m asking! But I’ve noticed he has actually been on the list many times before… don’t ask me why lol

  • John Lee

    Only watch highlights. Also, if Lin himself is facing the unfair treatment and obstacles in HIS life with a bright smile, there’s ZERO excuse for us to spout and doom and gloom.

    In karma we trust. 😉

  • Tey Ling

    Have stop watching my international league pass (waste of monies) and only watches the highlights and this site. Sob sob ..

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    Notice how he mentioned NOTHING about WINNING.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    I beg to differ. I have been following Kobe for a long time and he has never said anything like this. He often time was very smirky toward management in the past when they aked him to do something.

  • Tey Ling

    Next question: any timeline?

  • CJSHYY

    Soon? Ya! I am happy…

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    Lin is actually Kobe’s backup and that is why he is so pissed at lin. Lin is not Price’s backup. Lin and Kobe are never on the floor together recently, so lin really is kobe’s backup.

  • blubell
  • John Lee

    I learned from my mistake during Lin’s first year in Houston, and held on to my money. 🙂

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Also funny Nash is still in the list. WOW! Hahahaha No one cares too much BS’ priceless Price.

  • John Lee

    I like Musselman too, don’t understand why the teams would rather invest in unproven rookie coaches like Fisher and Kerr (he just got lucky on a finished product).

  • joyce ward

    First of all, Nick Young has always been a streaky shooter much like JR Smith. Also I think that Nicks’ broken hand might have thrown off his shot. The thing about those kind of injuries is that competitive usage does not make it better.

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Franchise owners are blinded by the garish glare of media hype, so they hire big name coaches that talk big but never get results.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Oh, poor thing. Glad I didn’t spend money on this. Still able to watch games via free access in the past 1.5 seasons. Try it next season:-)

  • blubell

    From Lakersground

    Lin — — He sank his first couple of jumpers, the second of which was a three which looked very calm, comfortable and smooth. I thought he might have had a chance to have a big game, but didn’t play much, just 15 minutes. The fewest of any Laker tonight, but he was still able to score 9 and dish 3 assists in the limited time. Scott didn’t go with either PG to close the game. On Kobe: “He got people in really good spots,” Lin said of Kobe’s passing game. I had wished Lin could learn a little from Nash this season, but Nash has bolted. Kobe orchestrated a pretty strong half-court passing game tonight. The team was on the same page, which is rare, but this can only help the playmakers as guys improve their spacing and know where each other will be on the floor. A little bit of nice chemistry between Tarik and Lin tonight.

    The Stats: He scored 9 points on 3-4 shooting (1-1 from three, 2-2 from the line) to go with 2 boards, 3 assists, 2 turnovers and 3 fouls in 15 minutes. He was a -12.

    The Action: He iso’d and swished a pull-up from the sideline. He drained a calm, controlled three straight away off an inbounds. He attacked and kicked out to Young who hit the step-back three. He attacked lane hard but couldn’t finish. Second Half: He attacked the heart of the D with speed and drew FTs, he made both. Sloppy two-man game pass trying to hit Boozer and he threw it away. He attacked off the high screen and scored a layup to start the fourth. He attacked and fired a pass to Black under the hoop for an And-1. Same trip down court after we got the missed FT and he hit Black cutting baseline for more FTs. He was called for a charge on Love (who was clearly in the restricted circle with both heels), should have been FTs. He sat after that as Kyrie came in. X**

  • jolno

    If that’s the case, Lin would have played a lot more minutes when Kobe sat out of games to rest. Lin only played 18:57 against the Trail Blazers on 1/11/2015 (a game Kobe didn’t play) to Price’s 32:50 so I don’t think Lin is Kobe’s backup.

  • Tey Ling

    It doesn’t matter because Kobe wanted to break MJ record.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hope that it happened yesterday but now we still have to wait. Getting more unbearable each game:-(

  • CJSHYY

    This statement also tell that Kobe wanted to win the game all by himself that’s why Lin was not allow on when Kobe was on the court. smh!

  • JoeTeam

    diva swan song. Happy = nobody on floor taking ball from him. He said ball has to go through him. That’s what’s up.

  • blubell

    Price’s grade: not one but two sleepy heads.
    http://forums.lakersground.net/images/smiles/icon_sleepy.gif
    Price — Scott was matching Price up with Kyrie, which meant 27 minutes for Price until Scott finally pulled the plug on that match up and went with Wes, Young and Kobe on the floor to close the game. Poor shooting night, making just one shot. He did manufacture some FTs, however. Kyrie had 22 points.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Believe JLin is no one backup. He is allowed to play because FO forces BS and KB’s hand in playing him with as much as they can get away with. Otherwise JLin is DNP-CD like Sacre now.

  • CJSHYY

    I know… but I like “I’m not going to be here much longer…” think about that makes me so happy.

    Subscribed to the LP was to watch Lin’s good games repeatedly especially after a stressful day. Ha ha ..

    Had also subscribed LP when Lin was in Houston, guess I was just hoping that each year would be better for Lin.

    Actually there is also a free website u can go to watch after games to your heart content. It’s in Chinese website. I watched Linsanity games via that web. Learn all these treats from JLin fans:-)

  • Brent Yen

    SO be it……#AuditionModeON

  • Alaingrvis

    idk why people are saying its about kobe. its plain scott doesn’t want lin as a player.

  • Brent Yen

    I do not think there is only ONE reason.

  • Maknusia

    Bcoz, some believe that Kobe is dictating BScott

  • Alaingrvis

    well either way scott or whoever controls him prefer price as a player

  • blubell

    In case you missed the great Price D

    lin doesn’t fit his style seem very simple to me

    we are kinda cross the line here for name calling…we are all frustrated, but we are smart enough to have some decorum 🙂

    It is about

    what do these faces mean?

  • Alaingrvis

    or scott dislike lins game

  • Brent Yen

    I do not think that is the case. He just dislike “Lin”

  • Maknusia

    why?

  • Alaingrvis

    if its about kobe why does lin play little when kobe is out

  • Brent Yen

    I just said it is not just about Kobe….

  • blubell

    6. Media ask him too many questions

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    I think the coach has been trying to push things through him hard, which might be extra load on him. If Scott let Lin run the offense, and get Young more catch and shot opportunities, things might get better, but Scott want to run Young ISO……

  • Brent Yen

    LMAO

  • PPP

    7. He acted like a great coach

    5. Don’t run faster then me

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Long vid.

  • KHuang

    Lin did take the clipboard earlier this season.

  • KHuang

    The fabulous way Lin’s playing, he’d be Nash’s MENTOR by now!

  • KHuang

    Well meaning advice by Kobe, but this isn’t the 90s of the illegal defense era where one didn’t have to cut and read the court and be all intellectual to play well against modern day zones.

  • KHuang

    3rd leading scorer despite being the 9TH MAN!!!

  • KHuang

    If Scott departs, another coach who hates Asians will take Scott’s place.

  • KHuang

    Lin played “as much” as he did only because Ronnie Price messed up his elbow on that one screen where he played soft defense on Kyrie Irving and got his lackadaisical arm tangled up in a screen.

  • KHuang

    It’s really just #4.

  • KHuang

    Does anybody speculate about how well Lin would play if he was fairly officiated and properly utilized?

    I feel that it would be Linsanity EVERY GAME.

    My guess: 22 points, 10 assists, tons of happy teammates, and a championship caliber team.

    There is no better per minute performer in today’s NBA than Lin, in my opinion.

  • John Lee

    Easy, whatever Wall’s doing multiplied by 1.2 or 1.3 on personal stats, and better team winning percentage leading to at least Conference Finals.

  • gasparthe2

    I know that Jeremy Lin is an excellent ball player constraint only by favoritism or bigotry, profit, and the fame of Kobe bryant. The Lakers can deprecate on him, if you will, while showcasing their franchise man, but Lin doesn’t have to take it (like the song says).

    …And he’s not. Jeremy Lin is a tenacious man and so he suffers the consequences; and I can’t blame him. I expect the forces of fairness to intercede sooner or later; after all, what we see others see as well.

    Plenty of teams can use his expertise. He might have to exchange playing on an elite team to being the deliverer of a poor team like the Knicks, let’s say.

    Like Paul F V says: Kobe may be on his way out and these games could be his Last Stand.

    None of us know the end of the story for Jeremy’s life. He is a person of impeccable character and given the circumstances he has had to play basketball he has been elite. To me, he has nothing else to prove in character or basketball. I am sure when the time is right the conditions that he is playing under now will improve greatly. May we continue to pray for him and patiently wait for that time.

  • KL

    I think it would just be a lot of WINNING. I think Lin will take what the defence gives him. The 6 game winning streak with Melo was a good indication.

    Lin was already famous and defences were built around stopping him. He put up solid numbers whilst winning decisively.

  • KL

    Oops but then again Lin is an even better player now. Yeah Linsanity every game!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes patiently waiting for Linsanity 2. Don’t believe God brings JLin thus far for.him to be like this. As long as he continues to improve, he will flourish in due time. As JLin said, miracles do happen. I will wait for that day. It may seem tough now but sure glad that JLin has turned a corner in his bb journey this year. Still have another 3 months to go. Only God knows what will happen tomorrow.

  • joyce ward

    Exactly. I would be different if lin wasn’t playing well, but he is playing really good basketball and becoming very efficient in the time he has on the floor. The best part of this situation is that the whole world is seeing how he is being marginalized. After the dust settles, Scott will be the scapegoat for the whole Laker organization

    That’s the good part for being in Lakers. Everyone sees it. Glad that JLin has played very well despite being marginalized/handcupped by BS and KB. Wonderful he has learned how to get go with the time that he has given. Am glad to see opponent teams respect his games even though BS and KB aren’t.

    Thanks for the tip, unfortunately I do not know Mandarin.

  • MoominFloren

    I’m so regret that I have bought Lakers Lin jersey & T shirts once he landed. I should have donated the money to his foundation instead.

    Thank you Lin for bringing me back to NBA. I’d stopped watching it after Alonzo Mourning retired. I was crazy for him when I was a teen girl. I remember Zo was the shortest centre at that time, but he was a great shot blocker, played excellent defence. (You lazy Jordan Hill, please watch what is a big man play!!!) He’s a fighter. He came back from a fatal kidney disease, never give up and, helping children off the court etc. I was so happy that he contributed a lot in the final and got the ring before his retirement.

    And Lin, another fighter, a real fighter, and is still fighting against the bias. No doubt Lin will shine again. All he need is just one chance, a fair chance, to make it happen one more time.

    At the time Lin leaves the NBA, so do I. I will go back to watch soccer, which requires a lot of team play, less flopping, less iso, and no chance of crazy benching 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    No need to regret about that… I believe Lin will stay in Lakers even there are so many rumors about trade or news… But after last night the talk from Kobe & how Scott cut Lin’s playing time tell me… Lin is a big threat to Kobe that’s why Kobe & Scott were so mean to Lin. This is not the first time Kobe did this to his teammate… read the statement from D12… Lin will win this time bc Kobe is old.

  • joyce ward

    You know I find it very interesting that the conversations about whether kobe will shut it down for the rest of the season is just going back and forth. At first Scott said that he had spoke with Mitch, F/O and that they might shiutdown Kobe to preserve Kobe for next season. Then the reporters said a couple of days ago that management was not ready to shut Kobe down for the season, then Kobe came out and said that will shut him down and that he wasn’t happy about it, but he understood management’s position. So there is some factions inside of the organization fighting among themselves So that is why I say Scott is not representative of the F/O. Scott has own agenda

  • lleepar

    Reading tea leaves. What are they saying? I don’t think the message is very clear at all. But reading through Twitter this morning, there’s no shortage of tweeters who are absolutely, positively sure they know.

    From any viewpoint of “normal” basketball decisions, most of us will agree that none of this makes sense. For example, if Price really does have an “elbow problem” (which seems more like the last available excuse for continued ineptitude), why would a coach who alledgedly values Price put him into physically punishing game minutes with a bad elbow? Another example, why has “Kobe the co-coach” we heard so much about at the season’s beginning suddenly been demoted to “Kobe who has no say about his minutes or who plays?”

    Something is cooking alright, but it may not have anything to do with Jeremy. It affects him, certainly. I’m not denying it’s about Jeremy either. But I just don’t know. It’s like one of those problems whose variables can point to two or three equally valid solutions. And the tweets from the “often in error, seldom in doubt” really guys don’t enlighten very much.

    Will Jeremy still be a Laker on February 20? Don’t know. Is everything being done between now and the ASG mainly to keep the spotlight (only) on Kobe to hype his votes? Almost certainly.

    If Jeremy is traded before February 20, I’ll reserve any enthusiam until I see where. (Been through the “frying pay into the fire” situation already).

    I’m more interested in whether we’ll see a different type of Laker game after February 20 when Kobe has made his ASG bows (current Lakers main objective) … and if Jeremy is still a Laker and maybe given a longer leash finally.

  • Rookie75094

    Counting down to Jlin DNP-CD. … KHuang and I have been right the whole time…. at least his body will be rested for next season with another team….. why sacrifice for a team that does not appreciate you.

  • Rookie75094

    If you start out expecting DNP-CD for Jlin…. any minutes he gets to play will be a bonus, icing on the cake.

  • John Lee

    While it is still being reduced, I don’t believe Jeremy’s PT will actually get down to DNP-CD. A tanking Lakers team still needs to maintain viewership, and Kobe fan base Is no longer able to sustain it ALONE. It should be glaringly obvious by now that the loyal Lin fans will NEVER give watching Lin, and the Asian audience is a large one, so while they can abuse the golden hen, they’ll never be stupid enough to kill it. Lakers FO needs to run Kobe fan base AND Lin’s army in tandem to ride throught the muddy waters of tankhood.

    I say worst case scenario 12 minutes give or take when Kobe’s playing, best case 16, based on Kobe’s 32 min cap. 18 to 22 minutes when Kobe’s resting.

  • John Lee

    You truly get the spirit of 置之死地而後生。 LOL

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I would like to think of it this way….God the potter JLin the clay…how will he be moulded in His hands….no one knows at this time..
    I see Linsanity as a prelude to something greater…foretold what is to come…a story not of JLin but a reflection of God’s greatness.

  • webattorney

    Agreed. Only way Lin’s PT is going down to DNP-CD is if Lin openly asks to be traded. I also feel bad for Ellington. I even feel bad for Jimmer.

  • sws94

    I don’t know if Scott can get away with that. He has to play Lin a little bit, so he plays him the minimum.

  • KHuang

    Ah, Alonzo Mourning.

    I remember watching him in the 1988 US Olympic Trials as a high school senior. He matched up briefly against his future mentor, Patrick Ewing.

    I thought that Mourning had his best years as a Charlotte Hornet. He was terrific, though like all Georgetown centers he lacked some post fundamentals. In later years, scouts complained that Mourning was relying too much on power and brute strength instead of using actual skill.

    Mourning was still a marvelous player and earned that richly deserved championship. He was a truly great center.

  • rookie75094

    sorry what is it? I can’t read that.

  • John Lee

    Roughly translated, back yourself into a corner (no win situation) and then fight your way out.

  • CJSHYY

    Only 3 days left. Let’s vote for Lin in ASG by tweet, FB & http://www.nba.com/allstar/

  • rookie75094

    k.thanks…I like it.

  • JW

    Guess BS is settling in with the 10 players rotation. With only 10, Ellington is the odd man out. Guess if BS is to play him, then Lin will really be DNP-CD.

  • Rick Johnson

    If it was Lin, Stu “Jeremy Lin can’t guard Kyre Irving” If it’s Price: “Kyre Irving is just so good, nobody could stop him”

    If Lin traded I’m looking forward to him doing this to Price:

  • webattorney

    Lin should get away from doing his interviews by saying: “I think you should interview guys who played over 15 minutes.”

    Reporters: “Because you are on the bench so much, you have more time to observe what is going on; that is why we are asking you questions.”

  • Rick Johnson

    Annoying thing was Ireland asked Lin “were you ready for Kobe to be passing so many assists?” Lin should have said “he didn’t pass any to me”

  • webattorney

    I know, the reporters are so afraid to ask relevant questions. It’s shameful.

    The Great Tanking Race + Kobe Retirement Show

    So let’s call the previous game what it was. “Kobe vs LeBron” Show for perhaps the last time before Kobe retires.

    Kobe played well with 19pts/17asts/6rebs/3TO with good 50% shooting (7-14) and Cavs underwhelming defense.

    It’s becoming undeniable that Lakers becomes the Kobe traveling show and losing is a welcomed outcome for tanking purpose. More LA Media is calling out for a full tanking season by losing more games to keep Top 5 draft picks.

    It’s imperative for Lin fans to adjust the expectations that both factors will point to Lin’s reduced minutes since JLin is about team and winning. Perhaps that’s why Lin’s minutes are dwindling because his playing style and goal conflicts with Kobe’s personal goals and Lakers wish not to win games.

    Let’s hope Lin keep’s his high efficiency in his 14-15 min and he will attract attention for contenders knowing Lin will help them for playoff run. Lakers is no longer “cheer-worthy” as normal basketball teams who want to win so basketball fans would need to adjust our expectations since winning is not the team goal.

    This Utah game is probably no different since whoever loses will be leading in the Great Tanking Race. Lakers (12-28) vs Jazz (13-26)

    If Kobe doesn’t play, let’s hope by a fluke that Lin is allowed to lead Lakers to post 20+min with great stats. Wins are probably not the desired outcome by BScott when Kobe’s absent.

  • 22cents

    For a team trying to tank, that is EXACTLY what they should do. Poor Lin. 🙂

  • LAJane

    Pay the most attention to the “It doesn’t matter.” part. The meat of the message is BS is irrelevant. Just one more guy to be used with whatever message of the moment serves Kobe’s rep.
