G41 LAL @ UTA Game Thread

Without Kobe, will Byron let Jeremy play more min? If it makes Kobe look bad by winning, expect Byron to reduce his minutes.

Keep smiling and play your best, JLin! There is light at the end of the tunnel!

  • I knoww hehe.. I knew Lin will bring it but I knew Byron will suppress it.
    Argghh =)

  • Rick Johnson

    But Lakers want to tank. What a quandary. If they lose to Utah they will be sure to get into the bottom 5.

  • nodomo

    Wow! I’m watching the game for sure tonight!

  • Arsenium12 .

    Watch this block by Lin in the Rocket’s March 17, 2014 game against the Jazz. In fact, the block was against Trey Burke, who might be starting tonight.

    See : https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=6KhmzOHPGco#t=185

  • nodomo

    Price was rubbing his elbow throughout the game last night. Now it’s clear that the injury was bothering him.

  • David Kim

    No kobe Lin Starts
    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    2 blocks.

  • Rick Johnson

    How did he get injured?

  • bolero

    I think he’s injured the whole season that why he can’t shoot much. Poor guy….

  • Frank

    Hope Price’s out for the season
    when ur old, elbow injuries aint a joke
    god always has a plan right?
    plz gift Jeremiah Lin, your devoted son another chance to prove his worth on his contract year
    do the right thing god

  • bolero

    I like Garcia ..

  • CJSHYY

    Hope Kobe can out of season ASAP.

  • Today is the LAST Day! And we have HIT $3100! Just surpassing JLin’s 3001 Career Points + 90 Career Blocks =)

    I’m sure it will bring a smile to his face on 1/19.

  • Rick Johnson

    Maybe JLin knew Price, Kobe out earlier when he quoted that bible passage. If you look more widely at the passage more in context:

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Corinthians%2012&version=NIV

    Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delightin weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

    We should call Byron Scott “the thorn”

  • 1mtoldman

    if bs is the thorn then who is kobe…or who mite be satan in your scenario? (other than satan).

  • LOL .. it reminds me of Nets ex-GM Rod Thorn!

  • MoominFloren

    Well, he can’t shoot in the past 9 years anyway 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Awesome Rick

  • Frank

    he will soon i can see dat

  • MoominFloren

    Can I pray for no BS tonight as well?

  • 1mtoldman

    long term injury then.

  • 1mtoldman

    that would be hitting the trifecta

  • MoominFloren

    since college? haha

  • John Lee

    You mean you want icing on the cake…AND eat it too? But of course! LOL

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Simply ignore that BS and play JLIN brand of bball.

  • Iane Baez has one of the most hilarious GIF in Twitter-verse LOL

    https://twitter.com/ianeBeE/status/555960522018160641

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes, BScott out, and Mark Madsen takes his place.

  • bolero

    Ok from now on “The Thorn” what about the Sith…lol

  • MoominFloren

    You know Lin will listen to the coach…..

  • bolero

    i wish…lol

  • John Lee

    @MoominFloren is right. I’ve spoken with colleagues from Utah who’ve been following, and they said Price was never good since college.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    It’s already a miracle to have both KB and Price out on the same night…

  • bolero

    maybe JLin will start from now on since it more than 20 games with price. NOT….

  • John Lee

    No disrespect to iane, but I still rank Rikki M higher.

  • Lymania

    Don’t get too high too early…
    No price no kobe, but there will be always somebody as long as BS wants~

  • John Lee

    If it happens then I’m gonna go out, buy an ice cream cake, and then eat it. LOL

  • MoominFloren

    I’m greedy…..

  • bolero

    what about McFlurry..

  • Singapore BB Fan

    ya, probably someone has to remind him it’s already 40 games over and LAL has not even half of the Win they got last season.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What do we have for Jeremy?
    Ed Davis, Jordan Hill, Wayne Johnson & that crucial ?
    This ? is the problem.
    Byron is looking forward to be blown out by the Jazz on this back to back game. This is why he puts Jeremy in. He thinks Jeremy is cooked!

    Don’t be too happy too early. Looking forward to being double teamed the whole night! Who is going to set picks for Jeremy?

  • 1mtoldman

    well hes’ never been able to shoot in the pros. 37% roughly this year and career. same. he’s just as bad as ever just for reasons which dont need to be gone into at this time he is (for only the second time in his quintesential scrub career getting minutes.

    no change in results.

  • Rikki M GIF is also hilarious and full-of-imagination!

  • 1mtoldman

    oh i just had an oreo mcflurry.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This same Utah team blew out Chicago by 20 points on Jan 7.
    What do we have to expect playing Utah tonight?

    The best option for Jeremy is still Ellington.
    Go Linsane, Jeremy!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Awesome news!!! Clap! Clap! Go JLin!!!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Where is Rikki M? Haven’t seen Rikki for a long long long time.

  • 1mtoldman

    chicago is not playing well. even rose finally had a big game and they still lost to washington.

  • Linja

    Ha.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nets looks really awful now. Wonder why some fans want JLin to go there.
    https://twitter.com/uuords/status/556240336964837376

  • bolero

    a lot of JLin fans got depressed and stop following him..

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! This is good one.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Good shooting form!
    Jeremy has picked up his shooting this season.
    The Birdman bounced off him; Jeremy is pretty strong for a guard.

  • 1mtoldman

    there are so many nba teams in disarray. its a time of change. many forces at work old not yet dead and new not yet fully born.

  • CJSHYY

    No wonder they want to get rid of DM, Johnson…

  • Rick Johnson

    I hope Hill and Ellington’s shot is on tonight. Hate it when JLin keep passing to Hill and Young and they keep missing and wasting the shot. Ellington as been sitting out the last few games, he will be motivated to do well and prove he shouldn’t be sitting out games. Hope we see some Lin / Davis PnR and Davis stays out of foul trouble but now they have Black to back up.

  • I don’t think he ever makes his way here yet.
    Maybe someday to say hi to old friends =)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep sad. Guess they are more disappointed at NBA as a whole. Am furious with how JLin is being treated by his own teams and NBA. Hard to root for JLin but still believe Linsanity 2 will happen no matter what.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hope and pray so:-)

  • 1mtoldman

    49% for jan 47% on 3’s

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    But the defense of Chicago is still intact. They still have Gasol & Jimmy Butler (PER of 21+), Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson!

  • hopefully Hill set decent screen and Davis/Black would roll well.
    Lin/Boozer would be nice. Not sure Swaggy can find his shots yet

  • Linja

    Then, how did he getta stay in NBA for so long?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They don’t have draft choices. Lin will be their starting PG for years.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    has a lot of meaning behind the “Ha”

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Even though KB and RP aren’t playing this game, I’m still skeptical on BS will play JLin more and use him right. He will want JLin to pass and do nothing else. Somehow I feel like BS will play Clarkson more if JLin doesn’t come out “hot” and/or appeal to his eyes. This is how much I have faith with BS.

  • 1mtoldman

    lin keeps passing to young because scott keeps stopping him bringing the ball up and orders him to pass to young and young comes around the corner and gets the ball and shoots and misses….and most recently just in case lin was considering taking his fans advice and ignoring coaches orders and not passing to young: they have young bring the ball up court himself.

    and we all know that once the ball is in youngs hands a fga is not far away.

  • 1mtoldman

    practice player. been around a long time dont have to teach him everything; naively i thought thats why the lakers got him. turns out there was more afoot.

  • bolero

    we’ve seen that before..

  • Linja

    Maybe he would be out for Liningitis ?

  • John Lee

    He’s stuck at the old turf.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    LAL Away record is better than Home. playing without KB on courtside makes a lot of difference…all the guys will play team bball.

  • John Lee

    If Alibaba’s Ma Yun buys the team, I wouldn’t mind Lin going there and conquer New York again. A slap in Dolan’s face is never bad.

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! I like the idea but Ma Yun didn’t show any interest in NBA at all… LOL!

  • Je Ballew

    have to remind myself many times melody but God is bigger than scott Kobe or anybody else. His will be done he knows what is best.

  • Ken Chatsworth

    When Lin is backup, he gets subbed in at no earlier than the 3 min mark in the 1st quarter. As a starter, guess when he will be subbed out? I am guessing 5 min mark.

  • 1mtoldman

    but butler has been dropping lately; ever since dunleavy went out and they starting shifting things around. dunleavy was not a good player but they had a stable rotation once he went down and they shifted butler to 3 instead of 2 since then he’s not really regained his momentum even back at 2.

    and rose (despite) that one big game (which again didn’t matter they still lost) has been not good all year. still highly suspect as to is he able to ever play at a elite level again

    in their four loses in last five games they have given up an AVG of 106 pts a game.

    prior to that there had been only about 6 games all season when they gave up more than 106 pts.

  • 1mtoldman

    can you explain the symptoms and causes?

  • John Lee

    I think he’s busy with philanthropy work.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He is still there??

  • CJSHYY

    I really do hope someone from Asia can buy Nets..

  • joyce ward

    Kobe is such a chicken. He keeps telling the media if the F/O wants to shut him down after All-Star game, that he will do it. He says he wants to play (yeah right, kobe). Kobe is tired and his game preparation is getting harder and harder for him to maintain. He wants too look good when he plays because Kobe has been reading all of the bad press about him. Old age is upon and he is struggling with his game. He has too much pride to sit on his own, so he kjust have the F/O make the decision for him so that he can tell the fans that he had no choice, because it was a management decision.LOL

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • MoominFloren

    Reasons:
    1. NY
    2. NY
    3. NY
    It is where Linsanity belongs to.

  • John Lee

    I remember seeing him there fairly recently.

  • real-dsb

    Hey Jordan Farmar’s available. Maybe the Lakers can sign him to save their season. LOL

  • bolero

    first out..last in..

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know and understand but as long as BS is still in Lakers. His heart is like Phoroah’s heart is hardened. Let’s put it simply, God has a lot more patience with sinners than me:-)

  • KHuang

    Good call.

    Lin joining the Nets would SAVE THE FRANCHISE.

    Good players – and quite a few petulant superstars too – would want to join the Nets if they installed Lin as a properly used point guard.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That sums it up well.

  • KHuang

    I’d feel better about the Nets if Lionel Hollins were gone.

    No more 80s retread illegal defense coaches.

  • KHuang

    PER means NOTHING.

    It’s a bogus stat which is completely made up.

    There is no way Kobe Bryant can sport a PER of over 20 this season.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Ok. Haven’t been back there for at least couple months or more now. Last check was so awful that I just left without reading more than the page that I was in.

  • bolero

    Hmmmm..

    Byron said he is considering changing lineup for reasons beyond injuries. Said he would reevaluate after 15-20 games after first switch— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) January 17, 2015

  • KHuang

    Same percentages as Jimmer Fredette last year, only Lin has less coaching and more minutes and more defense played against him.

    I wrote that Lin could be a Ray Allen level shooter if he repaired his jump shot. He HAS – and now it’s RAY AL-LIN!

  • Sophie Paris

    I’m watching the game tonight!! Time to have another great game for Jlin. 😉

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol season would be done already.

  • Not sure if blaiyan’s highlights was posted but here it is.
    I actually haven’t had time to watch it

  • dolphin2k2

    Davis or Black at center would be ok since they hang around the post, Hill and Boozer can play pf since they like to shoot from the elbow and stretch the spacing. Ellington is starting so probably Wes will be playing in the starting line up also.

  • Sophie Paris

    Thanks he played really good for 15mn. Smh

  • Alaingrvis

    won’t be pice

  • Alaingrvis

    scott has been delusional for to long to believe all of a sudden he found sanity

  • Yascar

    He’s gonna put Black and Clarkson in. The reason other than injury is the tank.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s my take on KB. He won’t bow out on his own. Last game was his “high” for this season. He should be able to bow out now with whatever dignity he still has but…. Anyway, I give up on BS and KB and just want JLin to play for God, have fun, improve games, stay healthy until it’s time for him to shine again.

  • 1mtoldman

    there are already rumors to that effect. actually getting farmar would be a good move, cause he is one of the few players in the league whose numbers this season would define him as actually worse than price and therefore a good backup point guard. (to price)

  • CJSHYY

    Good game from Lin even he only played such short min.

  • 1mtoldman

    a lot more will get depressed 2nite if both kobe and price are out and bs still continues lins amazing declining minutes.

  • Wear his jersey! Maybe tonight we’ll get OLin-sanity! YEah :]

  • CJSHYY
  • Sophie Paris

    Yes jersey&beers haha 🙂

  • BobbyH

    Did it confirm Lin will start? Maybe the tweet implies Clarkson. Whatever he says, I won’t believe a thing.

  • yes, make it Happy OLin-sanity! lol

  • real-dsb

    agh, last day for group donation? i’m such a procrastinator

  • Rick Johnson

    Maybe they will build up Lin to showcase him for the February 19 trade deadline?

  • dolphin2k2

    Didn’t he get waived by Clippers because he is injury prone?

  • real-dsb

    > injury prone

    perfect for the Lakers then

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin will start…

  • Alaingrvis

    could be

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t think so more like try to show nice to sign him to me.

  • Lymania

    Because in lin we trust?

  • joyce ward

    Teams know what lin can do. No something else is going behind the scenes. Kobe so willing to shut it down if management wants him too. No something is up, and I don’t think it’s a lin trade.

  • John Lee

    I got Sophie to come over via Twitter. Don’t want to poach in public lest I draw the pests over too. Perhaps we can PM Rikki M somehow.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You can do it in no time:-)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agree. Seriously doubt that FO will trade JLin away as they need JLin and his fans to keep Lakers afloat. Wish JLin is traded but doubt it’s going to happen.

  • CJSHYY

    Me too. Not trade.

  • John Lee

    I hear ya. I couldn’t last more than 10 minutes there, before getting uncivilized response with obscenity. It’s amazing the things the mods there allow, the whole place just smells rotten with profanity and racial slurs.

    It’s really sad because I met some of the best Lin fans there (many of whom are now here), and at the same time I’m grateful that psalm and co. had the foresight to create this sanctuary and maintain our sanity.

  • joyce ward

    Yeah , and here goes Scott saying he will looking a changing line ups. No kobe will sit down after the All-Star game that is what’s happening and to keep the fans in the seat they will use Lin.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! If they wanted to trade him, they would showcase him like they did to Hill… not let him played less than 20 min per game w 15M price tag.

  • real-dsb

    question about the donation form:
    1. If we use alias for first and last name, is that what is printed for the tax receipt? I saw that they’ll put the name in the Recent Donation list, but I want to use my username, not Anonymous.

    2. Where is the Recent Donation list?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Received a surprised Christmas present from my niece last night when I refused to receive JLin’s Lakers jersey. I’ve got Linsanity T-shirt:-)

  • CJSHYY

    Feel the same way. Saw Lin was on their magazine cover…

  • Rick Johnson

    But if their nice to him and let him play they will start wining games and lose their top 5 draft pick. Hmm, what a predicament.

  • CJSHYY

    Kobe still will play some games so no need to worry… LOL!

  • joyce ward

    Think about, what PG are they trading for, Rondo BTW he is on the bench in Dallas with an Achilles injury, don’t think so.

  • Brent Yen

    Rondo injuries again?

  • real-dsb

    Eh, I’m sure it’s fine to use alias. I can always show IRS the credit card statement to match anyways.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I see the coach is giving lots of excuses for KB and Price when they are not shooting well….such a loving coach.

    edited: should I use “step father” instead of coach.

  • pandaboy99

    Heh Worthy said Lin he would be the leading scorer tonight

  • Rick Johnson
  • maybe it’s okay. Remember, send directly to JLinFoundation, not JLinPortal
    since Paypal charges some exorbitant fee!

  • joyce ward

    Everybody is on to their game now. Scott is such a inept coach, he couldn’t make it look lie a real tank job. His own agenda clearly got in the way. Playing his favorite players with no obvious skill as a starter. That was the first clue. Then that cartoon video from bleacher report that went world wide starring Kobe in Let’s Tank” It was hilarious. They media is really clowning Kobe .LOL

  • after you donate directly to jeremylinfoundation.org you’ll get the receipt.
    Just forward to me (jlinportal@gmail.com) then I’ll add username to the list.
    You may use real name on the card if you prefer.

  • pandaboy99

    If there was ever a game for Linsanity to show up this is the one

  • joyce ward

    Yep. Raymond Felton was the starting PG…LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Omg…..Hahahahaha….not laugh at the injury……just…….on man…..

  • CJSHYY

    What? Rondo? w Achilles injury? Wow! I didn’t know that…

  • CJSHYY

    If so no one will sign w Rondo this summer.

  • Good choice!

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, that is the cover that you can buy at every game. Jeannie Buss is in charge of the marketing of all Laker products.

  • Brent Yen

    That is like a monthly mag?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Haha, much better. Anyone want to buy my jersey? Good thing I didn’t buy league pass or travel to a game. Would want my money back.

  • oh, Thank God!!!!
    Hallelujah LOL

    Some of us will watch in person :]

  • Brent Yen

    Lol…….some of us has some personal agenda….lol

  • Arsenium12 .
  • pandaboy99

    Ronnies arm must be damn near amputation levels if Byrons choosing not to play him

  • yeah, like real money+driving+pulling-kids-from-school early+other real life hassles involved =)
    No Price-sanity for me, sir!

  • JoeTeam

    eh hehe, this is Byron’s way to change Lin to starter and not have to admit ANYTHING!

  • joyce ward

    Scott is one loon. He acts like he is really in charge. yeah right.Mitch must be back at work because hit seems that he has reeled in Kobe with the statement that if the management wants to shut me down I will comply because I understand their position.

  • JoeTeam

    I want you to have a Ton of Fun! for all that effort.

  • joyce ward

    Exactly, especially since Kobe will shut down after All-Star game.

  • orLinaryjoe

    News alert: bone broth break though is helping Kobe play tonight. Oh dear, had to have a chuckle.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • orLinaryjoe

    Fans on BS: he is just bad. Not a little bad, but just plain bad, or horrible even.

  • JoeTeam

    Freedom days coming up fast. Just want Mr Lin to be healthy rest of this season, this record doesn’t matter. FA, new team (as LAL too if new coach, teammate attitudes), what next? More thorns in his side to keep him from being conceited, and then … wife and kids lol.

  • CJSHYY
  • JoeTeam

    chokes my craw, this unwelcome visitor to my browser page.

  • Linja

    More than happy to:
    1) whenever he sees Lin, his spirit got crushed, thus his bones would dry up. (Prov. 17:22)
    2) whenever he sees Lin analyzing the game in Linterviews, he would feel so inferior, his hatred erupts inside, causing big headache.
    3) whenever Lin dunks, his eyeball roll back with disgust, causing his vision blurred.
    4) whenever Lin’s teammates embraced Lin, causing him to wonder why the players don’t hug him, causing him to vomit when he goes home.
    5) (please add to this un-curable disease…)

  • Sophie Paris

    Lin signing Kobe’s jerseys hahaha

  • orLinaryjoe

    Please don’t sign the 24 jersey. SHEESH.

  • orLinaryjoe

    U beat me by split second

  • Sophie Paris

    No comments 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    that’s gonna make the signature worthless hehe.

  • CJSHYY

    I hate this coach.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Just cut arounder it, and throw the rest away.

  • Linja

    What’s up with that ?

  • LOL …Olin stealing his signatures too!

  • John Lee

    Kobe pwned! by Lin.

  • thanks, Bro! 🙂

  • John Lee

    _ _ _ _ you, BS. (Insert own expletive)

  • joyce ward

    You know what, we can all agree that 90% of the carp that comes out of Scott’s mouth makes us realize that when he opens his mouth all doubt is removed from everybody mind is that is just a straight up loon

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agree. Glad for this website any day. @psalm234:disqus and posters keep me sane:-)

  • Lymania

    Can’t help it but bring my kitty out~~~

  • Linja

    BS definitely got Liningitis. (See its definition below:
    1) whenever he sees Lin, his spirit got crushed, thus his bones would dry up. (Prov. 17:22)
    2) whenever he sees Lin analyzing the game in Linterviews, he would feel so inferior, his hatred erupts inside, causing big headache.
    3) whenever Lin dunks, his eyeballs roll back with disgust, causing his vision blurred.
    4) whenever Lin’s teammates embraced Lin, causing him to wonder why the players don’t hug him, causing him to vomit when he goes home.

  • Lymania

    Hahaha

  • blubell

    God is good 🙂

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin to take the carp, place it in the pond, and meditate.

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Hopefully this will begin the JLin trade.

  • CJSHYY

    I know… Besides Kobe, no one he likes… all negative comments… smh!

  • sport

    LOL good one!!

  • John Lee

    He DOESN’T think, period.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. I was really happy with my first JLin’s shirt. Too small for me to wear though.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can’t believe sign KB’s jersey.

  • LAJane

    Smart guy. Stick with what you know (which is not basketball), and stay out of the NBA swamp.

  • John Lee

    Not true, he loves Price…and his bagels.

  • real-dsb

    Byron Scott on Ronnie Price: “I don’t think he’s been great… he’s been exceptional! I don’t know where the Lakers would be this year without him.”

  • sport

    The guy even disses Nick Young, there’s no limitation for him. Only cares about his beloved scrub Price and haggard Kobe LOL.

  • joyce ward
  • orLinaryjoe

    It’s not the bagels, but the head of the snake!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sign on the name or number Lin. lol

  • John Lee

    BS is changing his rhetoric, I think FO sent some sort of clear message and the tides are turning. Joyce may be right in that Mitch is back.

  • Lymania

    Seriously, these people who hand over #24 for lin to sign it, what are they thinking?

  • Brent Yen

    He just said lin was just an ok player

  • LAJane

    LOL See…this is how you guys help keep me sane 🙂

  • orLinaryjoe

    Oh wow. Just wow, so revolutionary from BS

  • JoeTeam

    exactly, why collect this stuff if you destroy it’s value. Take off your other shirt and wear the 24 before you get the autograph.

  • orLinaryjoe

    That’s as positive as it gets

  • Brent Yen

    Lin asked in a earlier event…..”who is number 24?.

  • John Lee

    Actually, it’s kind of flattering. After spending real cash on Kobe jersey, they’re thinking scr*w Kobe, I’m getting a Lin autograph!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Of course after all the shackles you put on him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS, it’s never BS’s fault. SMH

  • orLinaryjoe

    No class. Unless they really cut it out.

  • MoominFloren

    How about “It’s entirely my fault” coach? The one who preached defense since preseason but nothing comes out, and openly admitted he did not study opponent before the match.

  • John Lee

    Don’t underestmate how difficult that must’ve been for BS. He may have had to clench his teeth just to sputter that out.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol

  • orLinaryjoe

    They know true value.

  • Linja

    “What’s intended for evil, God intends for good.”

  • JoeTeam

    Boy Scouts tonight, no game for me. You guys/gals hold the fort down and go Linsane! My hope? Lin controls the team well and they play beautifully. 7 ppl in double digits, a gentle win, some good team interviews, and we move onto next game without Kobe and Ronnie.

  • Lymania

    Hahaha. But still it kinda makes you look silly and lin silly too for signing it. They should do like what Joeteam said,

  • John Lee

    A: the playoffs.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin should write 17 over it

  • KHuang

    Not “entirely” Lin’s fault?

    Lin’s been playing LOCKDOWN DEFENSE.

    Nobody can get past Lin 1-on-1, including Lebron James who had multiple cracks at it last game but failed to get past Linfender.

    Lin gets screened because the Lakers don’t practice modern day defense that runs opponents off the 3 point line and thus prevents picks from even taking place.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Oh common, how can you miss that? But we’re here keep you up to date as possible.

  • Lymania

    Exactly. I say if you have Twitter , you should twitt your idea to them. Great suggestion.

  • FrankW

    Based on his judgments so far, in particular on Lin, I could
    say now Bryon has the analytical ability of a dead tree stump. “It’s entirely not
    his fault” on coaching, was born that way.

  • John Lee

    Even better than pissing on the hydrant. Kobe would fume and light up in envy green! LOL

  • Lymania

    Playground! Or school backyard. Haha

  • KHuang

    No, SIGN IT!

    That way the fan will remember Lin every time he sees his Kobe jersey – just like Kobe does!!!

  • HY C

    will tank commander allow that to happen?

  • Lymania

    True. True. Hahaha
    And thinking, Jesus, these fans turn on me so quick!

  • sport

    Unless BS benches Lin for 9 minutes stretches which was what he did when Lin was starter while giving the scrub 22 minutes!!

  • Yascar

    Well, he has to back track. The head of the snake has been eaten up alive by every darn PG out there.

  • KHuang

    Stoopid coach.

    He’s ANGRY that Lin’s defied his DNP CD projections.

    I have never seen a coach hate a producing player this much, not even when Charles Oakley and Tim Floyd constantly criticized each other in the press. Even PJ Carlesimo who was choked by Sprewell never hated on Sprewell as much as Scott hates Lin.

    Scott is blistering mad that Lin has PLAYED GREAT in the few minutes Lin has gotten.

    If that Lin hate troll and Price lover Metalogic7 from the other forjm was an NBA coach, he’d sound and act just like Byron Scott.

  • KHuang

    Liningitis.

    I LIKE IT.

  • Yascar

    Prayer request makes me nervous. Means there’s a lot on his mind. Hope he plays free. C’mon Jeremy!

  • John Lee

    KHuang pulling a Byron and changing DNP-CD rhetorics… 😉

  • sport

    LMAO, and Kobe wanted Lakers to sign him!!! Imagine what a laughing stock Lakers would’ve been!!! Ahahahaha! Too bad for Cuban, lost his better bench players for nothing!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin being marginalized, but we still here having fun. Remember when this site was just the mods?

  • KHuang

    DNP CD has been put on hold this game.

    Credit goes to Price and Kobe for going down.

  • joyce ward

    Just to be clear, Rondo has a bruised achilles heel. They don’t know when he will play

  • joyce ward

    Yep it seems so..and the plot thickens

  • webattorney

    Wow, I have never seen any coach not try to prop up his own players. With a coach like this, who needs an enemy? The worst I have seen any coach say something negative of his own player is something like “He is trying to adapt.” or “He is not playing up to his capability”. BS is basically saying Lin is a mediocre player. Wait to go instilling confidence in your own players!

    Can you imagine BS saying “I don’t think MY WIFE has been great. I think she’s been OK. But I don’t think she’s been TERRIBLE, either.” No wonder his wife is divorcing him.

  • KHuang

    No, Scott like Tarik Black and Wes Johnson and Ed Davis.

    Carlos Boozer is not a guy that Scott likes, but Scott will at least play Boozer.

  • joyce ward

    My starting line up with Lin:Booze/Ellington/Davis/Black

  • KHuang

    Price got his arm wrenched when he was playing his customary lazy Beverley style defense and got tangled up in a pick.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Sounds like nursery rhymes…I don’t think he’s been great, I think he’s been OK. But I don’t think he’s been terrible, BS!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Defected product, Cuban should sue those Celtics. Lol

  • JoeTeam

    Ha ha I thank you for giving me the reprieve. Sounds like Price is out for the Phx game too, so go with psalm’s kids!

  • FrankW

    Tipoff in a few minutes.

  • joyce ward

    That is why Cuban was smart, he didn’t panic and sign him to a big contract. Cuban just wanted to see how he meshed with the rest of the players

  • JoeTeam

    maybe not, but some days you have to let the cream rise.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    waiting for JLin Post Game Rebuttal

    edited: with a Smile 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    expected this from scott

  • MoominFloren

    Hmmm…….I don’t feel the change yet….

  • JoeTeam

    somebody give me the reply link lol. Maybe I can watch box scores on my mobile.

  • Dorothy

    I am concerned too. It makes me believe things are not going well even though he is handling them ok.

  • Alaingrvis

    did rando sign long term to dallas?

  • Lymania

    No~it never just the mods. It’s always mods and other posters. ^_^

  • joyce ward

    I agree, we will have to wait and see,but I will always have hope that things will change

  • CJSHYY

    No.

  • KHuang

    Celtics actually got the better end of the Rondo deal!

    My man Jae Crowder is now the Boston starting SF because of his extreme intelligence (comparable to Lin but doesn’t have Lin’s athletic gifts) and rugged toughness (also tough like Lin).

    I proclaimed in Summer 2012 on the other forum that Jae Crowder was one of the best rookies coming in. He has actually exceeded my expectations because I viewed him as a low minute utility player who’d play 10 years, not as a starting NBA small forward averaging double figure points!

  • Alaingrvis

    they may let him go

  • webattorney

    Can you imagine BS saying “I don’t think MY WIFE has been great. I think she’s been OK. But I don’t think she’s been TERRIBLE, either.” No wonder his wife is divorcing him.

  • 1mtoldman

    in the beginning it was like 75% mods.

  • KHuang

    NO WORRIES.

    Lin derives his strength from prayer.

    He tends to pray before big games. It settles him, focuses him, and helps block out the negativity.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Like it “the plot thickens”

  • 1mtoldman

    funny

  • KHuang

    Cool.

    JE Ballew and I are going together, like we typically do. He knows more about the modern NBA than I do and is a real expert.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    All of that remain to be seen, anything can happen til the end of the season.

  • Frank

    he lost all his credibility so nothing he says means anything any more

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW KHuang get this right:-)

  • webattorney

    With a guy like that in the Revolutionary Army, America would never have won against the British. What a sense of covering his teammate’s back.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Thanks for a good laugh before game web.

  • Dorothy

    What I am not happy about is which coach ditches his starter in public right before the game?

  • KHuang

    I don’t see any change in rhetoric.

    Byron Scott hates Lin more than ever, especially because Lin has being playing like a league MVP in the few minutes he gets!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    But he still can make the public laugh.

  • Arsenium12 .

    What a bizarre press conference / interview. Who would be asking questions like this?

    https://twitter.com/MarkG_Medina/status/556269519211999232

  • webattorney

    Forget before the game. You never should do this as a coach. No matter what, you are on the same team. I could never fight for a commander like this. There is a reason why soldiers would have died for General Patton. BS is a disgrace of a human being, not just as a coach. It speaks a volume for NBA that a person like BS could have gotten a HC job. I could never imagine coach Woodson saying this about his own player.

  • Lymania

    some one has to take the stage~~hehe. Glad them come this far.

  • KHuang

    Let Scott twist and shout.

    Let Scott know what it’s like to be LINBARRASED.

  • Bearness

    Lin throwing a wrench in BS’ tanking plans tonight! Linsanity, baby!

  • 1mtoldman

    got news for you bs ronnie price is no “kid”.

  • Frank

    i meant byron scott lol

  • John Lee

    Yeah yeah yeah, and Price also makes some mean bagels.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Good question actually, they want BS to say those are injured comparing to Lin.

  • Frank

    who cares
    they lost all ther credibility
    nothing they say means shyt

  • Alaingrvis

    31 is old for a kid

  • JoeTeam

    Dad sending off his kid with a pat on the back. Price is done, lol.

  • occupatio

    lol

  • 1mtoldman

    and has never tripped over the half court line yet bringing the ball up to hand it to kobe. wow. (actually i think it was stu that pointed that out).

  • Alaingrvis

    ill watch the laker feed hope it goes well

  • John Lee

    So…Lin’s gonna tank the tank? LOL

  • KHuang

    No I’m not.

    Byron Scott STILL wants to DNP CD Lin, but he is being forced to play Lin anyway because the Lakers don’t have anybody left after Price to dribble the ball upcourt without losing it.

  • Dorothy

    Exactly. BS has no decency.

  • JoeTeam

    really, you guys are buds? Cool. Go Lin!

  • Bearness

    Lin is going to place a landmine under that tank!

  • Frank

    Byron can say whatever the heck he wants but Lin has been great #truth

  • joyce ward

    Scott is just ring to justify why he played Ronnie Price over lin for his own agenda. The more he talks the more he digs himself into a hole.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Have a feeling Stu will soft down attacking Lin.

  • webattorney

    He now saying Lin is not tough. Wow.

  • 1mtoldman

    wow with this quotes i mean im familiar with coaches throwing a player under the bus after the game but i dont think ive ever heard anyone backhandedly doing so before the game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    truth

  • MoominFloren

    Shut up BS !

  • KHuang

    Lin is the MOST VICIOUS postgame interviewer I’ve ever seen.

    What makes Lin so biting is that he’s trying NOT to antagonize anybody on his team but it comes out that way anyway!

    It’s like when Kobe Bryant screamed and cursed at Lin for not taking that late foul because Scott ordered Lin not to. When asked about it, Lin didn’t even flinch because he said he didn’t notice Bryant!!! Lin basically said that he IGNORED Bryant and Lin didn’t even realize he just BLEW OFF KOBE!!!

  • LW

    so the people around BS must be all be feeling Lin ‘s been terrible!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    see Novak.

  • joyce ward

    Because he has not finalized his contract with TCW. Bill McDonald has, but not him.:LOL

  • octaviaaa

    Why does he mention Westbrook? Wasn’t Jeremy already coming off bench when Lakers played Thunder.

  • Lymania

    Why did you talk about Price, when the question is asking about Lin?

  • KHuang

    I don’t.

    This is a racial issue, and RACE TRUMPS EVERYTHING.

  • Promo Sports World

    Why those BS comments on Lin are amazing….I’ve never heard anything like that on a player….tough love???? I mean that can only be the explanation because the Front Office wouldn’t want to alienate their whole Asian community

  • Bearness

    Not tough love. No love.

  • Dorothy

    exactly. I think he is forced to start Lin and trying to deter Lin having a good game.

  • Promo Sports World

    It’s amazing

  • joyce ward

    He did Nick Young the same way. He said if Nick came in early to practice and put up some shots and sart taking it seriously then perhaps he would hit some shots.LOL

  • webattorney

    Lin playing turrible, as if he’s trying to justify what BS has said.

  • cali7

    I don’t think bs can admit he is wrong. Pride cometh before a fall.

  • joyce ward

    Scott needs to pay off the ex-wife before she produces some incriminating tapes on him..LOL

  • Lymania

    Oops somehow it vomits again. Didn’t mean to insert it again.

  • occupatio

    such a stupid turnover

  • joyce ward

    what is he doing?

  • Bearness

    Playing very hesitant. Not fully committed on his attacks.

  • occupatio

    its maddening watching lin sometimes.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    “Deleted” 🙂

  • Dorothy

    Is it because BS is afraid Lin may take off tonight but he has to start Lin, so he is playing some mental game on Lin to deter Lin have a good game????

  • MoominFloren

    I think BS is so angry that he cannot play his beloved sons in this game, must be the reason why he keep dissing Lin.
    His tank job is gonna ruined tonight

  • rookie75094

    only bruise heel…. kobe played with torn achiles heel…rondo is soft like charmin…hahahaha

  • Bearness

    2 turnovers. Got stripped once for easy basket the other way. Jumped with nowhere to go and threw it to a Jazz player for easy basket the other way.

  • joyce ward

    He will get it together

  • KHuang

    That’s another hateful stupid post by Byron Scott.

    Lin’s out there throwing his body around, taking illegal hits, going through full coaching punishment in practice, shutting down league MVPs like Lebron, bringing the team back game after game, standing up to everyone and winning just about everybody over, and playing every game.

    While Price sits out injured and beaten with a wrenched elbow that he himself caused by defending a pick weakly and getting tangled up with a big man, this stupid coach has the gall to criticize the toughest player in the NBA?

    Racist Byron Scott is lucky he doesn’t post on our site here. People like me would TAKE HIM DOWN and send him cowering back to the practice gym.

  • webattorney

    If he starts to handle the ball like that, his teammates are not going to pass to him.

  • rookie75094

    And Yes my Jlin to dallas campaign is back on!!! Yehaaa!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This like new teammates.

  • LW

    lin has 2 bad TOs as a start and his teams mate don’t trust him with the ball after that.

  • ETC

    I was thinking about the difference between kobe and Jeremy. One plaus for himself while the other plays for God. One that cares for God’s glory while the other cares for his own glory. I am hoping that people see the contrast. Who do you want to choose? I think it is more than just basketball in my mind.

  • KHuang

    Good call, webattorney.

    Would you rather represent Scott or his wife in divorce litigation (I don’t know if divorce is your field?)

  • Bearness

    In Lin’s defense, spacing is terrible due to players on the floor.

  • Promo Sports World

    It’s still basketball

  • KHuang

    yes yes yes.

  • Promo Sports World

    No excuses play well jeremy

  • webattorney

    In BB, I rather Lin plays for himself. I don’t get what exactly it means to play for God on BB court.

  • Promo Sports World

    Word

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Even Hill brought the ball up and refused to pass it to JLin. What a heck!

  • occupatio

    an offense that gives hill the most shots in the unit. smh

  • KHuang

    To me, it doesn’t matter.

    As long as Lin PRODUCES out there, that’s the main thing.

  • webattorney

    You know what I mean, right? I mean BB is just BB. It’s like saying I play Monopoly for God.

  • Bearness

    Basketball is men’s game. I am not an expert, but I don’t think it means much to God.

  • Brent Yen

    The more hill touches the ball…the worse the ball movement will be.

  • sport

    Looks like Hill and teammates are icing Lin out! Lin was wide open but Hill didn’t pass to him!

  • Promo Sports World

    Hill is not Shaq come on with the feeds

  • Linja

    Thank you for asking. 🙂

  • occupatio

    lin is not even making himself available for the pass out to reset sometimes.

  • Promo Sports World

    Exactly the whole God and basketball performance thing is a little too much…play well on the court

  • Chipdip

    Hill playing PG? LOL

  • webattorney

    I get that he lives for God off BB court, but on BB court, it’s just a game.

  • orLinaryjoe

    It was, but sign of success

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I know …some of us here are hoping BS rid of the “starters” but leave JLin in the game with the bench..

  • joyce ward

    Lin needs to step it up and figure it out

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy playing like this is playing into the backup narrative

  • Rick Johnson

    Lakers starters so sloppy!!

  • KHuang

    Lin playing with people that he hasn’t played with in MONTHS.

    Lin is essentially a brand new starter with guys that are totally unfamiliar with his game.

  • Chipdip

    OK the real Lakers are coming in now…

  • sport

    OMG these selfish teammates are suck at passing!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Great point

  • Brent Yen

    This starter lineup is build for Kobe…

  • Promo Sports World

    But Khuang you still need to play your game

  • Singapore BB Fan

    These “starters” have been relying on KB too much that they panic without KB

  • Bearness

    So, Lin must start chucking shots and stop passing to Hill.

  • occupatio

    hill has no concept of dishing out for 3 pts. again on byron

  • Dorothy

    Lin out already?

  • sport

    What the Lin taken out?!!

  • LW

    wtf! they throw away the ball 3 times in a row! the 1st team is so bad!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes

  • Rick Johnson

    Clarkson so soon? Jeeze never see JLin in so soon.

  • webattorney

    Clarkson deserves a chance with the way Lin has been turning over. I want to see what Clarkson can do.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    that is the reason why the bench outplay the starters

  • Brent Yen

    He will have to play either way

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy will come back stronger… give him a chance to get use with the “starters”

  • cshot

    hows lin doing?

  • sport

    Lin won’t be able to play well with starters since he hasn’t for months! And Scott benches him when the real starters (bench) are in!! So intent on making Lin look bad!!

  • KHuang

    HOW?

    These starters have no idea how to play with Lin.

    They’ve never spent time together on the court!!!

  • occupatio

    jazz at least know to kick out for 3.

    lakers are just re tard ed

  • webattorney

    I am not going to argue with the rotation this time; there was a reason for it.

  • joyce ward

    Lin better figure it out…smh

  • Singapore BB Fan

    fundamentally the starters (minus Davis) sucks!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He wants Jeremy to become a ballhog chucker in a five-man sport.

  • Promo Sports World

    Got to put up shots man

  • MoominFloren

    A trap game and Lin smells it

  • occupatio

    can’t really blame byron for starting lin. come on

  • KHuang

    Actually, I won’t go that far.

    The only way for Lin and the starters to acclimate themselves to each other is to GET IN GAMES AND PLAY.

  • Promo Sports World

    No I’m smarter than you think….take it to the rim play your game

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He will Joyce

  • IsabeliJane*17

    In short he wants Jeremy to play like Kobe and Harden.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    only way is to play with the bench…no way out.

  • joyce ward

    Lin will figure it out.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeah okay.

  • Promo Sports World

    Again you don’t understand the point…he is an aggressive pg no? So be aggressive. I play and coach the game and see jeremys game with open eyes so he shouldn’t be hesitating

  • Bearness

    Although it is true he hasn’t played with them much, at some point, he also needs to step up. It should be obvious to him that there is no one to lead Lakers in today’s starting line up. Yet, he didn’t even have a shot attempt in first 8 minutes.

  • occupatio

    when your job is to ‘facilitate’ with ballhog blackhole teammates, there is not much to do except to chuck.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea give time to figure it out

  • I’ve seen enough of Clarkson to know he’s not a point guard. He just doesn’t have the court vision. He reminds me of Shumpert.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    WTH BS doing? Lin should play 35 min tonight.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    O-kaaaaay.

  • KHuang

    OF COURSE he will.

    The starters are FROZEN SOLID from months of being shut out by Bryant and Price.

    Lin will work with them, talk to them, encourage them to cut and move for their shots. They’ll come around.

  • LW

    ok, they are 12-28 for a reason.

  • Bearness

    Time to not do his job and facilitate himself. He is going to get benched when Kobe and Price are back anyway.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    should have done that during practice ….not during game time..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin always starts slow to get his teammates going.

  • occupatio

    if lin cant show up this game, there is no one to blame but himself

  • Frank

    nah weve all seen this coming no biggie

  • Alaingrvis

    what practice

  • Singapore BB Fan

    team….

  • Frank

    Lin please double digits tn
    ur teammates are no good

  • Promo Sports World

    Oh well I tried you always hammer me if I go a tad critical

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Okaaaay.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    exactly…no practice

  • Promo Sports World

    U win …. I’m done lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    O-kayy…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    How can BS be a coach?

  • KHuang

    Stop.

    You’re acting crazy.

    There are 4 other starters who have not played a NBA regulation game with Lin in MONTHS. And those guys have been FROZEN because Kobe Bryant and Ronnie Price have stunk up the game with their bad selfish defenseless play.

    Do you really expect them to suddenly start cutting and defending and scoring just because Lin is with them for once?

    Besides, haven’t you noticed that the Lakers are not down 18-0 like they have been lately?

    One guy cannot unfreeze four beaten down guys in a single quarter!

  • Chipdip

    No need to blame himself. It just a game and playing for a coach who hates you is not that easy. Try the best!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    coach decision….i guess

  • MoominFloren

    But how about the first 20 games they had played? It still counts right? I will say they are sort of icing him…

  • KHuang

    WRONG.

    This is an actual GAME.

    Lin and those guys are feeling each other out.

  • Chipdip

    Just need to be snaky … full of vernom…

  • Promo Sports World

    12-14 please….could easily happen. Utah is not a juggernaut

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Now I know why I don’t have million dollars.

  • joyce ward

    Is lin still on the bench?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes sister.

  • joyce ward

    What is the score?

  • Chipdip

    same here… same…

    Those are special species… talk like a human … but…

  • sport

    Lin just needs to look to score right now, that when he’s doubled his teammates will open up!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    28-27 jazz

  • orLinaryjoe

    Starters stink of kobe

  • LW

    and so is Utah, I guess.

  • occupatio

    nice cut by clarkson. boozer actually passed it

  • MoominFloren

    Voldemort?

  • Bearness

    Exactly.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Humbly disagree…

  • Chipdip

    Haha… thanks for the reminder! That’s it!!!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Joyce you’re still at work?

  • JC

    He really said that about price?

  • occupatio

    oh that female ref is doing this game.

  • Promo Sports World

    Guys and Gals clarkson being agressive hurts our heroes minutes…..some of you best me up asking Jeremy to be agressive but with Price out we all know BS is looking for Clarkson to step up and throw mins his way

  • joyce ward

    yes

  • Chipdip

    Clarkson! Good Job!

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin has to come out hot. He gets so little opportunity and such a short leash he can’t waste time trying to get teammates going.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We post the score when we can. timeout now. 30-29 Jazz

  • Clarkson made that play because he got the outlet quickly from Boozer. Hill takes forever OR never passes to Lin.

  • sws94

    I think one thing Lin should be doing that he wasn’t in there is pushing the ball down the court fast. He hasn’t been doing that enough this year. Clarkson just did that and it winded up being a nice lob to Black.

  • Chipdip

    The “starters” are slow…

  • Brent Yen

    If hill is willing to give the ball to lin…then yes

  • Bearness

    Ugh, bench actually runs. Starters do not.

  • Alaingrvis

    1st unit plays slow this is expected

  • Singapore BB Fan

    you got the point

  • occupatio

    remember the time hill decided to bring the ball up himself? lol
    dont expect an outlet to lin

  • Rick Johnson

    But when Lin attacks and looks to score Scout tells him to be a facilitator pg and pass

  • ty

    a quick 3 from top of the key would be nice

  • sws94

    Then encourage Ellington, Davis and Wes to move faster. Only slow guy is Hill.

  • joyce ward

    Lin better come out blazing and stop the nonsense.

  • sport

    Lin never allowed to play with 2nd unit when he’s starter!!

  • Chipdip

    Clarkson bad pass turnover and a steal … it happens… good recovery!

  • occupatio

    yep yep

  • Promo Sports World

    Rather him have points than not man…increases his value…why listen to scott anymore

  • BobbyH

    A team plays like this, it is on the coach.

  • sport

    If he doesn’t I’m turning off the stream, BS is intent on making Lin look bad. When it’s obvious he’s more familiar with 2nd unit!!

  • occupatio

    bad pass by clarkson, but the problem is the offense has no plan B if the first option pass isnt available. its so laughably pathetic.

  • joyce ward

    Stop with the clarkson play by play..smh

  • Singapore BB Fan

    hey Coach…need JLin in to calm the bench…

  • Chipdip

    Come on Joyce, he is playing well and I like him, haha

  • occupatio

    jazz execution is not bad at all, but shots not going down is all.

  • Promo Sports World

    Let’s go

  • joyce ward

    I don’t care. this is a lin fan site

  • Bearness

    Finally.

  • MoominFloren

    This reminds me the time when Lin had to played against 14 (5 opponents, 4 teammates, 3 refs & 2 coaches) in Houston…..

  • Chipdip

    Jeremy’s good teammate

  • joyce ward

    He better do something to redeem himself

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    NBA refs, who are you?

  • That wasn’t a foul?

  • Alaingrvis

    refs like what going on this year

  • joyce ward

    yeah, yeah, lin needs to step us his game tonight

  • sport

    Lin not getting foul calls.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin b2b no call

  • rookie75094

    danm racist refs…Jlin got fouled twice … no call

  • cshot

    lin getting hammered

  • occupatio

    that female ref is always awful. ALWAYS

  • Brent Yen

    Hahahahaha this is so ugly to watch

  • Promo Sports World

    Well he went agressive and the refs ate the whistle

  • Lin-tin-tin

    Not only does B.S. get Liningitis, but I’ve heard Kobe gets Linfluenza. Everytime he looks at Lin he begins to ache all over and rest in bed. When Lin’s points equal or exceeds his, he gives a full heave. We all witnessed it after the Hornet game. Lin’s picture the same size as Kobe’s kept Kobe hurling until now.

  • Chipdip

    Not much a team play so far. Not sure how they practice team play. None

  • kauaiblue

    How was that not a foul??

  • Frank

    black female the white one the other day was nice

  • Brent Yen

    Because he is Lin..

  • occupatio

    i didnt know there was a white female ref

  • Bearness

    I would have preferred that he started hot. But, at least I think he will get plenty of minutes and chances in 2nd half today, which is when he usually does better.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hahahaa it’s easily turning from black to white to black again…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to watch out, many are very anti Christian, ask Tim Tebow. Again, who are you NBA refs?

  • rookie75094

    oh no there is the black female ref…

  • joyce ward

    Lin needs to find another way to score. Lin should always have a plan B for these crooked refs

  • Alaingrvis

    i cant believe no calls

  • occupatio

    yep

  • ty

    not a single word about Lin’s no call……. makes no sense

  • Frank

    black females always jealous of sucessful asian ball player

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin is not getting any calls, he needs a few mid range Js and a couple 3s to get it going.

  • occupatio

    they need to replace that ref with joyce

  • joyce ward

    exactly. what he needs to do. Lin should always pal for this .

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • occupatio

    it just requires an abduction and some mistaken identity comedy. lin fans, make it happen!

  • John Lee

    Valerie something…IIRC.

  • Bearness

    That doesn’t even begin to make sense. There weren’t even that many Asian basketball players to be jealous of, not to mention “successful”.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    her again

  • Alaingrvis

    lol lin foul wow

  • rookie75094

    the BF ref strike again… smh

  • LOL. Touch foul on Hayward but Lin got hammered but no call for him.

  • JAD2456

    The biased female ref Violet Palmer is doing her dirty job again!

  • joyce ward

    You know what if they had a rule that for every bad call the refs made they would have to pay $500.00 dollars, i bet you would have a lot of fair calls..LOL

  • Rick Johnson

    Violet Palmer smh

  • Singapore BB Fan

    ultimate injustice

  • Chipdip

    The Lakers are standing around. It’s going to be a long night

  • deesee5

    Lol that dosen’t seem to be stoping them.

  • Frank

    shouldve shot that one

  • joyce ward

    lin needs to figure out another way to score if this is the game they are playing. Lin needs to figure out that refs are not going to give him calls, so he needs to out think them

  • Singapore BB Fan

    funny …the ref in NBA are well protected….I still prefer the rules in soccer…2 linesmen and a ref + goal-line video

  • deesee5

    Do the starters really suck that bad? Always a – on the +/- even with Lin there.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    beyond redemption….for the starters

  • occupatio

    ed davis controlled the block so it would go to lin. nice

  • Chipdip

    Yes. But the Jazz is bad too

  • Why is Wesley Johnson trying to be a PG?

  • joyce ward

    I will be back later. lin has no chemistry with this first unit.

  • Why is Wayne Ellington trying to be a PG?

  • Rick Johnson

    Stupid Johnson should have passed to Jeremy. Rather turn it over

  • Promo Sports World

    It’s ugly

  • occupatio

    this team is one pass before the shot

  • sport

    Teammates just takes the shot the moment Lin passes to them!! Not playing like a team at all! Everyone playing for themselves! Lin needs to worry about his own points!!

  • joyce ward

    Scott’s orders. so that Kobe will keep his spot.

  • Alaingrvis

    i prefer lin with the bench guys. the starters annoy me

  • Brent Yen

    Scott has to move hill away from the basket to win this…

  • Frank

    and Lin still wont shoot

  • occupatio

    lollllllllllllll

  • Chipdip

    Experts here, are the Lakers playing iso most of the time? I don’t see any PnR etc… Help!

  • MoominFloren

    Has to move Wes as well

  • Frank

    he should be talking 10 shots by now lol

  • occupatio

    i think that was ellignton

  • ty

    did anyone hear Stu or the other Stoodge say ” Lin gets to come in” when Lin checked back in …… since when did a starter coming back in become a favor….the ridiculousness is contagious

  • Brent Yen

    Scott called it…hill is the 1st option after kobe

  • sport

    He took a jumper but missed. Only 3 shot attempts. Teammates also not passing the ball back to him when he’s open!!

  • MoominFloren

    Lin got a memo NO SHOOTING tonight

  • sport

    Jazz announcer also dissed Lin say he got his 15 minutes of fame!

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy is in no man’s land, and that lesbxx ref adds salt to the wound!!

  • kauaiblue

    It is very strange that violet palmer is so inconsistent with calls… jlin touches someone andnits a foul… he gets hammered and no call… lets write to nba

  • occupatio

    clarkson’s skill profile works fine in everyone-getting-his.

  • That’s a trip Matt Harpring. Gobert’s leg was stuck out.

  • Chipdip

    Exactly… two bad teams

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Playing with starters WHOM HE HAS 0 -1 CHEMISTRY + that black ref = THIS GAME.

  • joyce ward

    I hope lin wakes up soon..smh I hope he doesn’t give up.

  • livyrlife

    Jordan Hill is happy that Jeremy starts with him.

  • occupatio

    hes obviiously angry. you see him barking stuff at teammates to get to certain spots or whatever

  • sport

    What was Lin doing with that last shot, dribble in place for several seconds then just passed to Hill?!

  • Only if Lin passes him the ball. Hill never passes back.

  • Bearness

    Yep. Lin passed to him more than anyone passed to Hill like past 3 games.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    but in their eyes…JLin is nothing but a bench player…

  • Frank

    so dumb

  • occupatio

    indeed

  • livyrlife

    It’s obvious to me BS told the team to play PG anytime they wish despite Jeremy is the starting PG.

  • cshot

    running the game clock lol. it was the last 25 seconds

  • BobbyH

    BS’s call.

  • sport

    I hope Lin’s fine after being trip, looked like he was in pain. Gotta wake up!!

  • David Kim

    Scott doesnt want Lin shine. He wants Lin to pass Hill.

  • sws94

    Well, he just hasn’t found his rhythm. He needs a strong second half because the first half wasn’t very good.

  • Bearness

    Hesitated too much (like he has been for whole night) so he didn’t have a good rhythm to shoot. He had to pass.

  • pandaboy99

    Lin with the ROnnie price stat line.. looks like he might be starting in the future

  • occupatio

    thats the offense. serious. its to pass to the big, and then go set a useless screen.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats the offense . which he rrly pass back. zero pnr all iso.

  • kauaiblue

    I was sooo excited for this game… its worse than usual!

  • Frank

    Lin what are you doing like just when he gets a chance to play meaningful mins
    he just has to mess up
    this has been the case for 3 years now
    I dont why he keeps messing up chances

  • Chipdip

    That’s it I guess… ugly night…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    becos the bench had humiliated the starters for too long..

  • BobbyH

    Even if Lin starts, he is still on a short leash.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Eh, hello.. BS it’s obvious your directive is this:
    to Price: Shoot more for this team.
    to Jeremy: Set up your team mates. That’s all.

  • occupatio

    halfway into the season, and the offense is still like 2nd grade.

  • Alaingrvis

    as i said scott dislike lins style.this slow haif court style with the ball out of his hand is not lins style.

  • BobbyH

    The infamous 1/4 Princeton O.

  • sport

    Not going finish the game, if Lin does well I’ll just watch highlights. Starters don’t trust Lin nor respect him.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The “Starters” are Kobe’s men…they will not dare to back stab him in Utah…

  • occupatio

    i think its esp funny when a big walks by lin on the top and doesnt even set a screen before heading to his spot. its such a rigid ‘system’

  • David Kim

    Yup. But What if kobe or Nick had the ball, Scott will let them shoot.

  • cali7

    Sounds like playing with lin is too much work for the starters.

  • kauaiblue

    Does anyone think he looks slow?

  • Frank

    this is partially on Lin
    he isnt getting it done
    he keeps deferring
    needs to show some character
    like he did against the celtics
    now hes just being timid

  • Brent Yen

    Seems ok to me

  • Alaingrvis

    the offense is slow also bad spacing

  • cali7

    Deferring or trying to set up teammates?

  • Chipdip

    I think because the “starters” not moving much (and they are slow) that is hard for Lin to organize meaningful attacks

  • Singapore BB Fan

    although Kobe is not physically present but his spirit is there….the starters are afraid to offend the king of chucks

  • livyrlife

    An elite PG should be able to play in any system, whether it’s run and gun or slow, half court, off ball system..

  • kauaiblue

    If his teammates wont play, at least shoot!

  • sws94

    I think Lin relaxed as the game went on. Needs to shoot a little more and run the offense, also ask for screens early in the offense.

  • wandertheglobe

    Worthy just said “Clarkson found him” on the Lin’s assist to Davis, LOL

  • Chipdip

    They seem to like to stand around, get the ball and shoot…

  • Alaingrvis

    true lin isn’t there yet

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Gray Payton didn’t play well when he was a Lakers

  • joyce ward

    I hate to say it, that is why lin will never be a starter on an NBA team. He has to have the guts to tell the starting unit I am the starting PG and the offense runs through me. He doesn’t have hat umf to say it, whether the coaches backs him up or not. Lin should have figured out that the starters on this team were loyal to kobe, so he should have come with a different game scheme. Don’t just play into their hands..smh

  • Pete Roces

    if only he has the trust and support of coach and team mates, remember, Jeremy Lin is all alone in NBA.

  • KL

    Add Steve Nash to that list

  • sws94

    I think he’s going slowly.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats not scotts system

  • Singapore BB Fan

    you gotta be on the court with 4 fellows walking around to understand how difficult to get things moving…

  • BobbyH

    No offense, but easier said than done. Everyone has to buy in first, which I don’t think there is anyone in the start unit.

  • sws94

    He’s not there yet but he’s better than he played in the half. I don’t know if he put too much pressure on himself or he just isn’t inspired or what. At any rate, PLV’s observations are correct imo.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Youre right, Lin is too nice by playing what the coach wanted. He needs to takeover too which I hope in the sec half.

  • Chipdip

    Agree with you but on the other hand it is almost tied at half so Lakers has a chance to win this one even though it is a ugly game so far

  • occupatio

    someone pls tell me when the game starts. i cant listen to those TCW commentators.

  • cali7

    I don’t think that’s true bc offenses revolve around elite pgs.

  • Chipdip

    I guess Lin figured it out.. haha

  • Brent Yen

    Test

  • sws94

    I’m not sure the players don’t trust him. I think it’s all on Lin to run the offense. Call for picks, speed things up, cut more, etc.

  • joyce ward

    No it’s not. Lin played with the rockets. he should know how better to handle these situations. The first unit is nothing but scrubs, why play into their hands. lin needs to get his own rebounds and get his shots, like he ha done in past games.

  • Bearness

    True, but Lin needs to take his own advice and play with a sense of urgency. His next contract depends on it. He will get a job for sure. But, he will have a better control over his destiny if he can show he plays well in any system so he will be in demand.

  • occupatio

    he doesnt even box out or clear area for himself for rebounds much anymore.

  • CJSHYY

    What about them?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    It’s tough when the starters and coach did not want to win this game without Kobe…

  • Promo Sports World

    Can’t be nice on the court….kobe while an egomaniac is right with the mark your territory comments and jeremy lost that while in Houston…I think he is lost as a basketball player right now

  • Pete Roces

    Jeremy always sux on B2Bs

  • BobbyH

    Lin seems not himself today. Something is bothering him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I tuned out.

  • Alaingrvis

    hope lin gets a better second and settle down

  • Alaingrvis

    not last year

  • Maknusia

    He had more attempts/ast/pts coming off the bench compared to today

  • occupatio

    its not their coverage of lin per se, that show is simply terrible. unwatchable

  • Alaingrvis

    chemistry

  • Maknusia

    Test verified

  • joyce ward

    That is why , I don’t get about him sometimes. Perhaps in the 3rd quarter he will figure it out and wake up..smh

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers today look like the cavs yesterday

  • Alaingrvis

    cavs

  • dave lam

    Don’t worry. I seen Lin have terrible 1st half then look good the 2nd half

  • KL

    Relax everyone. Lin has had a bad half before. He will pick things up.

  • Chipdip

    Seems he is playing on his own. His teammates not really in tune. Hope he turns around in the 2nd half.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin don’t have chemistry w starters… & they all took the shots by themselves that’s why Lin couldn’t get the AS.

  • Bearness

    I am disappointed so far, but I do think he will be much better in 2nd half.

  • joyce ward

    Lin only plated 15 minutes in the last game, no excuse. he needs to get his head out of his butt and bring it in the 2nd half.,

  • Pete Roces

    Houston is a fast paced team, LA isn’t…Lin excels in fast paced games.

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy can play we know this but he is lost on what to do on the court….I don’t know if he physically can do it but he needs a good couple of secretariat minutes right now

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He always has b2b game because of abusive practice.

  • BobbyH

    BS: You need to facilitate today as starting PG. Run it slow.
    Lin: But Kobe is not playing.
    BS: So is Price. To be a head of snake, you need to follow the script.
    Lin: But but but …
    BS: Not but. This is not your team even if Kobe is not here.

  • occupatio

    i think lin got rattled after getting bad calls or not getting deserved calls several times in a row

  • Promo Sports World

    My sister your going in tonight but I feel you the kid frustrates the heck out of me on the court

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy has his prayer request email sent out this morning and I dropped everything to watch the game so as to give him support!!!

    Godspeed Jeremy!

  • joyce ward

    Well lin needs to figure it out. He has played with some of the best ball hogs in the business, he needs to box out and get his own rebounds and get his points and stop trying to play team ball with this scrub starter unit. H infuriates me when he does that.smh

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wes Johson stop playing point

  • Acbc

    More likely LIN was told to play a certain way before the game or else. Please, how many of us would dare to say to our bosses you’re killing the business, I’m going to do it my way whether you like it or not. You’d be fired the very next day! It’s all politics. LIN may be the starter tonight but it would not be beyond imagination that BS has already told LIN to feed the other starters and not to take too many shots.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    “Many opinions and voices are out there..” -EXACTLY!!! ESSATAMENTE!!!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    to match Price’s zero points?

  • deesee5

    True. He might show up in 4th.

  • FrankW

    Violet Palmer is not straight – with Jeremy Lin.

  • Maknusia

    he is playing as he was in houston standing in the corner

  • KL

    He is Mr 4th quarter. Not Mr 1st quarter. Haha.

  • Bearness

    I don’t care whether Hill makes the shot or not. I am so sick of watching him stand on top of key and shooting jumpers.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Wake the f up Lin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Different directives are very OBVIOUS when watching him as a starter vs watching him play second unit.

  • Promo Sports World

    Who knows he doesn’t look comfortable

  • Maknusia

    But still with the talent he has, he could do more

  • Really Jeremy? Just fkin shoot.

  • Chipdip

    Here it comes…. go Lin go

  • occupatio

    youll be sick for a while. thats byrons offense

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Yes pls

  • Rick Johnson

    Yes finally scores

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hurray!!!

  • Maknusia

    nice run to the basket, thats what I meant

  • livyrlife

    Jeremy, did you sleep last night? I forgive you if you thought about me the whole night!!! ^.^

  • Promo Sports World

    Secretariat

  • Bearness

    Yeah didn’t really watch these days. Forgot how unbearable it is.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Aggressive!!! Like it

  • Chipdip

    Sorry it was not you,,, it was Byron kept Jeremy thinking all night long

  • Maknusia

    when you get the starting opportunity, you need to show case.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Not enough for the aggressive-demanding crowd.

  • Promo Sports World

    Now if I’m coaching let him play 3rd and 4th with this energy

  • Chipdip

    Good job! Keep yelling and Lin keep scoring.. we need it… 😉

  • Promo Sports World

    Nope not tonight

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Woooo!!! Yes

  • Yeah Lin! Take that shot! Nobody else wants to shoot.

  • Maknusia

    nice turn around and the shot/!!!

  • Promo Sports World

    More minutes please

  • Bearness

    Finally a jumper!

  • MoominFloren

    YESSSS

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Still this Jeremy playing now will not be enough for the aggressive-demanding crowd..

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I have to agree with Stu, Lin stood too far from his man. Result wide open 3.

  • occupatio

    what was that nonesense stu was sayng? after the made s hot

  • Maknusia

    looks like, with all our yelling, he just woke up’!!!!

  • Bearness

    Too much help D.

  • occupatio

    happened twice.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    About time to bench Lin….

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Please… you should mold Jeremy into your kind of aggressive player.

  • Bearness

    Can you blame us? We are hungry for Lin action after all the benching.

  • Alaingrvis

    lakers are sloppy but very good defense

  • Promo Sports World

    14 shots for Jordan hill lol

  • BobbyH

    It is a trade off. But I guess it all depends on what the opponent O gives.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Please.. I’d rather take it the way he does.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS’s offensive system = fail.

  • livyrlife

    Jordan HIll is showcased for a trade.

  • Promo Sports World

    No I want to see the player we know he is…and deep down you want to see that player night in and night out

  • Rick Johnson

    Lakers have poor interior defense, they have to play off the 3 pt line more.

  • cshot

    since when did jlinportal become so angry lol

  • BobbyH

    A loop of repeating feeding to Hill, in this case.

  • MomentousPetey

    Jordan Hill: I’m a 2pt specialist!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Wasn’t he rumored to be garnering interest from some other team?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lucky, Jazz is soo bad.

  • MoominFloren

    No one will take this super LAZY centre who always stand 15ft away from the rim

  • livyrlife

    Not sure but most likely he’ll be traded by 19 Feb.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    O-kaaay…

  • BobbyH

    That’s a good point. That could be what BS told Lin to keep feeding Hill.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Still no call

  • livyrlife

    somebody is abusing her power to with hold my posts?

  • Acbc

    Yeah, why all the negativity?

  • Bearness

    No problem. Normally, I would agree. But, I’m antsy because I don’t remember a game where Kobe and Price were both out. So, I feel like it’s a golden opportunity.

  • MoominFloren

    Pls don’t remind BS for that

  • Dorothy

    No call, even Jazz commentator said that

  • IsabeliJane*17

    What withheld post?

  • more posters from the other site have come over 🙂

  • BobbyH

    Stu, getting low and lower.

  • Alaingrvis

    its amazing

  • Maknusia

    they are another “tanking” team

  • joyce ward

    No negativity, but for m, just frustration at lin sometimes.

  • Promo Sports World

    Hill is a goner for sure….cavs wanted hill not sure what happened

  • livyrlife

    Not you but my post reply to you is still awaiting approval by JLinPortal. I know who does it though!!!

  • joyce ward

    what did he say?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    need to practice shooting FT (Davis)

  • livyrlife

    some very shameless ones hide under other ids…smh

  • Promo Sports World

    Oh boy there you go again

  • BobbyH

    refresh

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t see one pending from you on the “waiting to be approved” list though.

  • Promo Sports World

    Only 6 assists for the Lakers…ISO ball ugly

  • Brent Yen

    Hill is u just so bad.

  • Brent Yen

    Lol

  • Chipdip

    That’s the BS system???

  • Promo Sports World

    Showcase game gone wrong…can’t blame him he wants out

  • Dorothy

    This is what happened when Kobe is not on the court, everyone trying to score while he is gone.

  • Promo Sports World

    Really horrible

  • Wayne Ellington going under screens on Hayward and getting Rodney Hood motivated. Not a great night for him…

  • livyrlife

    already approved by now. she’s giving me “warning”…smh

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    This game is too slow and too old for today bb

  • Promo Sports World

    Wow Westbrook

  • joyce ward

    What?

  • livyrlife

    By not shooting, maybe Jeremy has hurt the team in some way?

  • Alaingrvis

    everything about this game i hate the spacing, the play calling, and the refs. this is the most annoying game i have ever seen

  • occupatio

    thats it for me. too boring to watch this, even with lin in

  • Frank

    i do
    but lin needs to yell at them

  • Frank

    same thing when ur teammates are this bad

  • Promo Sports World

    17 15 17

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We all know his name but what is wow?

  • Promo Sports World

    Stats 17 points 15 reb 17 assists

  • joyce ward

    I don’t care…smh

  • Brent Yen

    So funny….

  • MoominFloren

    Wow

  • Promo Sports World

    Shots aren’t there no spacing….he needs a stretch 4 and pnr center

  • Bearness

    I think Lin pushed the ball only once all night.

  • joyce ward

    What?

  • Brent Yen

    Even clarkson gets the call…m…..interesting

  • Chipdip

    Tanking in action… or no action tanking… I don’t know any more

  • Promo Sports World

    I know I’m sorry just got caught up

  • Alaingrvis

    wow utah least have energy

  • golfhacker

    Does Boozer know how to dunk?

  • joyce ward

    I still ave faith that lin doesn’t want to lose and he will pull it out

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Now we know why Hill can find minutes under DAntoni, he stands a lone outside the paint stationary.

  • blubell

    Mr. 4th quarter coming up!

  • Alaingrvis

    i know

  • Brent Yen

    He is pretty aggressive….just not on the same page with team mates..

  • Chipdip

    Agree… and waiting for him to come back and turn it around. He needs his teammates to attach too and that will be difficult tonight

  • Frank

    this team is so bad its nit eveb funny

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Only if BS trusts him

  • Brent Yen

    That three by jazz. LAL was not guarding at all..wth

  • Frank

    he only knows how to push

  • Maknusia

    obviously, as a starter with the highest minutes, he should have taken more shots, probably he was lost on how to start?

  • kauaiblue

    who cares if lakers win… except that jlin started…

  • joyce ward

    Has Boozer and Nick young done anything tonight. I haven’t a peep from them?

  • Promo Sports World

    Losing teams shouldn’t be running the Princeton offense…in fact in the last 15 years the only team that did it well was Cwebb and the Kings

  • Maknusia

    Jazz seems to be making a push to lead…they were neck to neck last Q

  • Bearness

    I don’t think Lakers starters just standing around is Princeton offense. LOL

  • Frank

    Hill is a fker so are elington and big nose johnson they never pass to lin

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS is so bad as coaching. No adjustment.

  • Promo Sports World

    I sometimes question it too but they claim that’s the offense

  • joyce ward

    So lin needs to get his own rebounds and score

  • golfhacker

    Would you like a pushing foul from Boozer? He’s about due for one.

  • Chipdip

    yes, I only see them standing around …

  • joyce ward

    what have they been doing from the bench?

  • Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors are in the way.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Tired of seeing Lin feeding Hill or going alone and I mean alone.

  • Chipdip

    Must be Byron’s version of the Princeton Offense?

  • Solo

    only one 3pt attempt for LAL, and 21 from Jazz???? BS’s order???

  • joyce ward

    I hope lin just gets his points

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The female ref is just so awful.

  • blubell

    Violet Palmer is one of the ref…. hmmm.

  • Promo Sports World

    Dantoni for his faults understood playing slow hurts the less talented team…playing fast puts defenses on their heels…doesn’t work in the playoffs but better than this

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    So much iso

  • livyrlife

    You done on the other site?

  • Frank

    He really can do it hes talented ebuf

  • blubell

    Haven’t been there in ages. I’m very comfy here.

  • joyce ward

    Lin get your points..smh

  • Brent Yen

    Nick young is considerable slower going left

  • Promo Sports World

    Ryan Kelly with some empty minutes…needs to play with jeremy to knock em down

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Following BS’s system is following dead.

  • livyrlife

    really? don’t think so.

  • blubell

    ???

  • livyrlife

    lol

  • Jazz are smart enough to take the open 3s that the Lakers give them. But the Lakers rather shoot tough ISOs than take 3s. Is this Byron Scott’s plan or are all the Lakers dumb?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What was the point of running and conditioning when your offense is 5 mph, BS?

  • livyrlife

    she just kobe’d me.

  • joyce ward

    What is lin doing?

  • BobbyH

    Glued

  • What game are you watching? Lin’s not playing righ t now.

  • BobbyH

    She is working.

  • joyce ward

    OK. that is why I was asking/ I am at work..

  • Chipdip

    Expecting to come back real soon to finish the game now. Break now.

  • livyrlife

    warming the bench..

  • kauaiblue

    i almost bought one but thought i’d see what happened… glad i never did!

  • LOL, now that makes sense!

  • kauaiblue

    nothing much… sigh

  • Bearness

    At least Young is doing his job and providing scoring punch tonight. Hopefully, Lin can come in and close it out.

  • kauaiblue

    still? what do you do?

  • kauaiblue

    BS is not the sharpest knife in the drawer

  • wandertheglobe

    Novak is injured? He doesn’t get PT on the Jazz today.

  • Alaingrvis

    notice scott like the bench playing fast and starters playing slow

  • kauaiblue

    is he coming back? smh

  • Chipdip

    Other coach would put Lin in right now to play with the 2nd unit to win it. Not Byron.

  • Promo Sports World

    Makes no sense to play lin with the starters

  • Bearness

    Probably around 5 min left.

  • Rick Johnson

    Clarkson energetic but still raw

  • blubell

    Jeremy is about to come in

  • Promo Sports World

    Ok I’m feeling optimistic

  • kauaiblue

    hope you gut is right…

  • John Lee

    He’s not sharp at all, hence not a knife of any kind. Don’t know which kind of tool he is.

  • Bearness

    ROFL I knew Clarkson was going to take it himself once he saw Lin waiting at the side line.

  • Chipdip

    hehe…same here…waited all night for this five minutes

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Joyce, it’s your fault too bc you’re not watching.

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin is back in.

  • kauaiblue

    come on jeremy!!

  • John Lee

    Let’s hope @Michael is sleeping…

  • David Kim

    When Lin was in houston, he played well against Jazz. Scott offense system is so awful a lot worse than Mchale’s.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lin gotta shine now!!!

  • Why is Ryan Kelly in. They need Tarik Black’s inside game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s BS coahcing

  • Promo Sports World

    All about swaggy

  • Bearness

    Wow, Nick Young getting enough fouls to make up for whole team.

  • Maknusia

    lets not wake him up

  • livyrlife

    he is wide awake.

  • Brent Yen

    Young just died on a screen

  • CaliUSMC

    r.i.p..

  • kauaiblue

    what a boring game… why do we watch this crep?

  • Just leave. It’s okay.

  • joyce ward

    what is lin doing? that is all I care about?

  • CaliUSMC

    Im watching cle vs lac

  • Bearness

    Still passing the rock to others…

  • joyce ward

    is he at least getting assists?

  • blubell

    so close…

  • Good shot by him. Nobody else can shoot 3s.

  • Bearness

    Hockey assist, maybe.

  • CaliUSMC

    wth is lin doing smh

  • Brent Yen

    Too bad…

  • Alaingrvis

    tech by young ended this game

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Oh well :-/ game over

  • Has no confidence on that jumper and bigs are sagging back to cut off his drives. He needs to shoot confidently because nobody else on the Lakers is doing anything.

  • Alaingrvis

    got traped no one came to the ball should of shot it straight from the pass

  • BobbyH

    A washer game. Shake it off and move on,

  • Bearness

    Oh well. They wouldn’t have been in the game tonight without Young anyway.

  • Sophie Paris

    Well let it tank ^^’

  • Brent Yen

    Hoped lin would just pull up a three there

  • blubell

    OLin!

  • Promo Sports World

    Yeah man

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin feed to Hill, Lin feed to Young, Lin feed to Boozer…….

  • Rick Johnson

    This was JLin’s rare chance to break out. He used to do it in Houston with Harden out. Now I don’t know anymore

  • Bearness

    Too much uncertainty in his moves for all night, except briefly in 3rd quarter.

  • livyrlife

    That’s a very good 3pt shot, Jeremy, just keep shooting!!

  • blubell

    Lin starving…

  • BuzzerBeater

    I thought of this.

    I hope next season Jeremy can find that mojo back.

  • joyce ward

    what was his problem tonight?

  • Brent Yen

    4pts it is

  • He’s on a lame duck contract with other guys looking out for themselves only. A losing team with no team ball is a bad combo for Lin.

  • blubell

    finally! score!

  • Bearness

    I think he forgot how. He needs a team who trusts him so he can build up his rhythm again.

  • blubell

    make that 6 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    6pt it is..lol

  • Alaingrvis

    this game has a feeling of the year just crap

  • Promo Sports World

    Jump shot not there but he got his shots….just a continuum of a hard very hard season

  • Alaingrvis

    waste of my life watching basketball played this badly

  • grover chang

    I’m not surprised. This is a relatively decent game for Lin because it is back to back. Lin usually stinks in backs to backs, even in houston.

  • Bearness

    That did NOT feel like 11 FGA. =/

  • Brent Yen

    Hahaha…now blame games begin

  • Promo Sports World

    Would getting released be a good thing?

  • Tim Pham

    the early non-calls took lin out of rhythm. add that in with a very poor offensive scheme, makes it extra hard for lin. took tough shots, blah, just blah.

  • Alaingrvis

    we look like the cavs with out three all stars . all iso

  • Maknusia

    he is not himself today, thats obvious…so whatever reason, i will give him a pass for tonite’s game. He had all the oppotunity to show case himself that he is being marginalized in the bench and could do more as a starter.

  • Tim Pham

    i dont understand why the lakers don’t run any pnr. it’s always the same pass it to jordan hill, then screen for nick or ellington.. or watch hill go to work.

  • Alaingrvis

    can we fast forward to the offseason.

  • Promo Sports World

    System….just like the Knicks why run the triangle

  • Alaingrvis

    the starters play slow it isn’t there style

  • golfhacker

    Yes.

  • Tim Pham

    passing it inside to jordan hill is a lost even when he scores. he isnt good enough to force double teams..and he will make some, but start to miss..and even when he makes it slows the offense and throws the team off sync. he isn’t duncan

  • Maknusia

    should be 10

  • Rick Johnson

    I Thought of that but he played only 15 minutes yesterday. He shouldn’t be tired.

  • Frank

    hes been mistreated by refs since day one
    no biggie old lin still got it goin but he cant anymore

  • sws94

    Just not a good game for him. If Lin could get to play more without Kobe, he’d do fine. But, it was a spot start, his shot wasn’t falling, he didn’t get calls, he didn’t really find a groove in assists either. I don’t know if it can work with the Lakers. At least with Houston when Harden didn’t start Lin played well. It really hasn’t been the case too much with the Lakers when Kobe hasn’t started. Almost to the ASB and Lin hasn’t had one game over 21 points. That’s not Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    Showcase

  • Frank

    yes looks good on ur resume when it says u got fired from ur previous job right?

  • David Kim

    Because BS coach doesn’t want PNRs.

  • blubell

    shot a long 3 at the end… hurt his %

  • Tim Pham

    lakers have no offensive rhythm. at least with houston, they had harden and dwight howard or even parsons who could stretch the floor..no 3point shooters…jhill isnt dwight

  • Rick Johnson

    Seemed like all the starters thought they could be PG and making turnovers all over.

  • kassiek

    7 assists for lakers

  • nodomo

    Scott doesn’t believe in PNR

  • Maknusia

    definitely not…he had only 3 AST

  • Frank

    its pro basketball
    aint nobody got time for u to figure it out
    u either got it or u dont
    Lin was put on the spot in NY and he made it
    now he aint got it no more

  • Maknusia

    no wonder we lost

  • Promo Sports World

    Houston system good for Jeremy’s game…politics ruined that potential good thing

  • Lymania

    Guess we are all humans after all. ^_^ it’s inevitable sometimes. Just remember not to call each other names, or say offensive words. Keep calm and carry on like the old proverb said.

  • Alaingrvis

    it more the iso heavy style that keeps lin scoring so low. he plays 23 mpg off the bench when he does play his style with the starters it isn’t his style.

  • Briiick

    Simple, BS only uses a system that Kobe prefers, even if Kobe is not on the floor ! BS wants to deliver a message to Kobe that his position is intact.

  • Bearness

    Great. I can hear the narrative already. Lakers offense doesn’t flow with facilitators Kobe and Price out.

  • wandertheglobe

    BS scheme is to setup JHilll & Nick Young for ISOs. No ball movement, no pic n roll, everyone standing still. Lin will not be effective in that offense.

  • MoominFloren

    Is this a record?

  • blubell

    still a team high…

  • Promo Sports World

    U know what I mean…josh smith got released and has played well….can’t predict these things

  • PPP

    Doesn’t matter Lin starts or not or whether Kobe plays. BS just doesn’t allow him to play his game. It’s all elbow or iso all game long. I really have enough and just look forward to next season. Hope Lin signs with a contending team even as a backup.

  • David Kim

    No 3pts, No fast breaks, No PNR
    What he wants to do in offense? LOL

  • MoominFloren

    Yep….I bet BS is excited to see that

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya, BScott post game interview going to blame loss on missing Price and Kobe.

  • MomentousPetey

    lol, because playing the NBA is like a regular job right?

  • blubell

    So Young is the PG now?

  • blubell

    Head of snake and mamba… I hate snakes

  • Promo Sports World

    To think 16/7 seemed legit 2 months ago….now he is fighting ronnie price…

  • Alaingrvis

    idk its just not a style fit for lin staying with the lakers with or with out lin doesn’t fit. not with scotts system. price fits his system better although when lin was able to find rhythm he looked ok but style capped from potential

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Lymania

    You mean people who born on the year of snakes? Or snakes as animal in general? (^∇^)

  • Alaingrvis

    the style fits ronnie lin looks like another player in this style especially with out kobe in there.

  • Keith

    Lin did not even say hi to his buddy Steve Novak.

  • Alaingrvis

    at least kobe ret better spacing

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    Because lazy starters never run & cut. It’s difficult to play with Groot

  • JC

    Maybe lin is tanking too…

  • MoominFloren

    Time to have snake soup tonight!

  • Alaingrvis

    how do you have spacing issues haif the season gone.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    And it should because lin fell for the ‘okie doke ” with scott. he need to wise p and play smarter. he more intelligent. All Lin id was play into their hands…smh

  • Lymania

    Still better than price! Even with just 6 pts. Still, he should starts over price!

  • Alaingrvis

    zero spacing

  • Bearness

    Current Lakers will always have spacing issues. It doesn’t matter how much time passes. They don’t have shooters and no one cuts. So… yeah.

  • blubell

    all snakes.

  • Grace
  • Maknusia

    hey snakes are beautiful as well

  • Lymania

    Good for you! Snakes soup are good. But I never dare to eat it. You know how some chinese like it.

  • blubell
  • joyce ward

    We see that, but the average fan is not going to see that, so it really is null and void at this point.

  • Briiick

    But the coach tell other starters not ….

  • Bearness

    True, but you do need coach’s support for that.

  • blubell

    Wake them from Kobe’s spell.

  • Maknusia

    sorry FF is not working

  • joyce ward

    lin should had a breakout game tonight, What i up with him? More reinforcement that he is backup PG in this league. I am the biggest supporter of lin, but he needs to realize that this is not a level playing field when it comes to him/ He needs to find way to beat the system. So lin needs to don’t let his guard down for these snakes. There is a verse in the Bible that stays that the children of the dark are more wiser that God’s children of the light. Lin needs to figure it out. Not mad at lin but just very disappointed. These are lessons that he learned when he played with the Rocketts. He needs to play his game.

  • Alaingrvis

    please . how does hill get 14 shots.

  • Rene#17

    Kind of hard when Coach BS tells the team don’t give it to Lin.

  • Maknusia

    Hey stop the blame

  • Lymania

    Oops….
    I generally dislike the animal-snakes. But then there are also other animals I dislike like rats, roach, fly…etc

  • Alaingrvis

    system is like foundation to a house. your not doing thing your not suppose to do

  • Lymania

    My cousin, a girl, found snakes cute. She’s weird to me…no matter how beautiful, they just scare me.

  • Maknusia

    i dont think that was counted

  • Alaingrvis

    lin has to wait 3 months

  • blubell

    Good.

  • PPP

    Wonder worthy was watching the game. smh

  • MoominFloren

    Not really like it, it taste like chicken though. Just because I hate snakes so much now, I’m gonna eat them all LOL

  • PPP

    Worthy, tell your showtime buddy about it.

  • Briiick

    When you have a coach who doesn’t want to win, just wants to screw you to show he is right, you got what we saw today. But even that can’t stop Lin from shining for too long.

  • Frank

    Its been 3 years he hasnt changed a bit
    regressed if anything
    hes stubborn in that way hes determined to make sure all his teammates are happy
    something is fundamentally wrong there he wont change hes stubborn
    he will always let people walk all over him and hes fine with it and he thinks thats what god wants him to do
    taking the preach of god too literally cost him a what cudve been a wonderful career
    asian pastors can go very extreme sometimes
    Lin definitely got influenced by those extremeists

  • blubell

    Good. no more snakes 🙂

  • LAJane

    There will always be some haters and doubters, but the truth is plain and other coaches, players, and actual bball fans know that between tanking and poor coaching Jeremy’s talents are handcuffed. Nobody is going to give credit to the MIA “facilitators”.

  • joyce ward

    Worthy was right, that Lin needed to take charge because it was obvious that scott didn’t have a clue. Sorry lin not ready to have a starting PG in this league, He needs to establish authority because he is the better player on the floor and he needs to get the under control to follow his lead. Lin is not there yet.

  • Promo Sports World

    U know Joyce he hits 2 more shots it’s different vibe we are feeling…to me he just looked lost on the court

  • MoominFloren

    Excuse me Maknusia, would you mind to change your profile pic? No snake no Mamba please

  • Alaingrvis

    yea one game after playing 15 minutes

  • PPP

    Not sure why you still follow him?

  • Alaingrvis

    chemistry is non verbal if it don’t fit it don’t fit

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Frank

    cuz hes asian and im asian
    and he aint a scrub like all the other asians namely not yao ming who have ever played in the league

  • Rene#17

    At least Scott didn’t through Lin under the bus in his interview. Reporters bring up his turnovers and defense but Bryon says its on everyone and not just Lin.

  • Yascar

    Joyce, I’m with you. I really wanted him to do well. But something about the last minute tweet and prayer request just signaled that something was wrong. I don’t know what and I guess we might never know. But I trust that Jeremy will find his way… whatever that may be.

  • Bearness

    He took on foolish task of trying to get starters going. First half I can understand, but continuing that in 2nd half? Not a good idea.

  • Alaingrvis

    i ask did lin force the knicks to follow his lead no. he didn’t have to. chemistry just work. like the cars yesterday. if it don’t work it just doesn’t work

  • CJSHYY

    I agree he needs to be in charge more but his teammates didn’t really work w him (1st unit) too bad, his shooting was not falling tonight..not a good game for him indeed.

  • Bearness

    Probably because Scott is happy with how Lin played tonight.

  • Lymania

    Snake 很补 and expensive! Especially those 野生One…my mom said I don’t know good things when I refused to eat it. It is indeed taste like regular meat as they said, but, still I am only dare to drink the soup.

  • Alaingrvis

    defense. his defense was good

  • joyce ward

    I will be offline until the next game because I am so frustrated with lin right now He needs to figure out away to get control of the team when they are chaotic. Scott is not going to help him because Sott doesn’t know what to do. Lin needs to let his natural leader instincts lead him..smh

  • Bearness

    Are we talking about Price?

  • Bearness

    Do you think Lin had a chance to hear the comment? I don’t know the exact timing when BS said it.

  • David Kim

    No screen for Lin, No PNR, Coach keep telling Lin to set up for others
    If Tony Parker or Goragic is in same situation like Lin, will they play better than Lin? I don’t think so.

  • blubell

    What did he say? I missed most of the game.

  • MomentousPetey

    NOPE =).

  • Frank

    they would show some resistance and get what they want

  • PPP

    I follow him not just because he’s Asian, but because of his attitude towards team basketball and his personalities as a role model and not just selfishly paddinng his stats.

    He has a bad game which I saw that he had tried his best to be a team player first but apparently failed this time.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    its a different system

  • CJSHYY

    The whole team sucks… everyone tried to be ISO ISO & more ISO… no wonder they couldn’t win.

  • MomentousPetey

    “get guys the ball” isn’t THAT THE ONLY THING he was LOOKING TO DO most of the time???

  • joyce ward

    What did he say?

  • ETC

    Well, when he takes charge the Coach benches him. When he doesnt takes charge, then it is his fault? We can’t have it both ways. We either let him take charge and trust him or we don’t. The mix message thing from the coach would confuse anyone including the fans.

  • Briiick

    Well said. BS deliberately set Lin up for the failure. He didn’t even empower Lin as the PG. I noticed that several times some guys just brought the ball up themselves and ignored Lin.

  • David Kim

    If Lin replaces Tony Parker in Spurs with training camp, he will average 18 pts 7 assts.

  • PPP

    Good for you

  • Bearness

    Something like Lin has not been great, but OK. Not terrible either.

  • Frank

    I believe everyone can follow Lin for the things they admire of him
    We may not agree on those things but doesnt mean some of us arent qualfied to follow Lin because we dont value Lin the same way

  • blubell

    oh, that… what a horrible coach.

  • gasparthe2

    His team mates don’t work for him…period. He’s alone there. At least he took his shots. It was a bad night for him, I too am saddene.d

  • blubell
  • Lymania

    I follow him because he’s handsome, because he’s all over the news on the cover of Daily News, because Linsanity make basketball so fun to watch, because he’s asian as well. But basketball don’t seem fun to watch these days now…sigh

  • joyce ward

    The coach is going to bench him anyway. The problem with lin is that he should have no fear in doing the right thing. That is what our Christian faith teaches us.

  • Lymania

    Respectfully disagree. Dont think it’s like that.

  • TTNN

    he also said as a PG, a lot is on Lin.

  • ETC

    We have to obey our leaders. I don’t think Lin intentionally did poorly tonight. Some of it might be because of his orders.

  • PPP

    I have never said you can not follow him and of course every one has the right to do so and you also have the right to unfollow him as well.

    But calling him regressed because of his stubbornness is a stretch for him imo but then again you have your right to ignore me.

  • Maknusia

    change to snake?

  • Briiick

    The coach sucks. It’s obvious when you don’t see any thing other than iso and the ball was shot when it left Lin’s hands.

  • ETC

    If Lin doesn’t follow orders, he gets zero playing time. It is that simple. It is hard to follow the blind but if that is what he is paid to do then so be it. I feel that this is tank mode.

  • Frank

    I do
    you have the right to unfollow him and ignore me as well
    but his having regresses die to his stubborness is just my humble opinion
    which i will not back down from because thats what I believe
    despite all that l will still support Lin because hes asian and hes talented
    somedday he will shine again again you dont have to agree with me on this either
    good talk

  • Alaingrvis

    this is the foundation. there is no other way. unless scot fired

  • Frank

    well i guess i went a little extreme there didnt i? 🙂

  • Maknusia

    true, but a PG should not be compared to the team, thats worse, unless its Kobe

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    by next scott is here lin should return. this is a philosophical debate. lin want lol needs fast scott wants slow.

  • gasparthe2

    I follow him because of Linsaity in NYC: and because he’s asian; and becuase he such a principled fellow. He also can be an excellent point guard (quite often).

  • blubell
  • MoominFloren

    This is the first game in 2015 which Lin didn’t play well. He tried to get his teammates going, whether it’s on coach order or not, Lin will always feed the team first. Lin did try hard to play the right basketball, I can’t blame him at all.

    Let’s move on!

  • PPP

    Good, not too sad and not blaming himself, keep the cool and move on.

  • BobbyH

    Just look at the shot attempt, Lakers 65, Jazz 85.

    See the difference? Slow vs moderate fast. How can you win a game if you have 20 fewer chances?

    TO: Lakers 19, Jazz 12

  • ETC

    The focus of this year is to glorify Kobe. That is it. Millions of people idolize him so they follow the money. Lin isn’t on their radar. Kobe likes being a God and most people like to follow him. He isn’t interested in doing the right thing… That is why previous coaches had such a hard time with him. He is always right.

  • blubell

    I know.. just trying to be positive… and failed 🙁

  • Lymania

    Guess you are. Might need to pause and think twice before we post sometimes.

  • Alaingrvis

    doesn’t fit lin at all

  • BobbyH

    That’s the spirit.

  • blubell
  • Frank

    agreed!

  • Frank

    yess

  • ETC

    At least he is defending himself.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • MomentousPetey

    He is pretty spot on with that statement.

  • Briiick

    Exactly. Too bad even some Lin fans couldn’t see it. Lin simply was not empowered enough tonight to play a PG, and worse, he probably was tied up to serve some ISO plays to lose so that Kobe and Price look better. Just look at the ASTs no more than 10 for the whole team, it was just some disgusting BS coaching !

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh yes Byron Scott, Ronnie Price’s tough. He looks like he has tough skin…. LITERALLY. Really tough skin that can be made to a great hide for a sleek Louis Vuitton bag. I’m 100% sure you mean that.

  • nodomo

    Lin shoudl have added “I watch the film, I think I play tough D and try to make plays.”

  • PPP

    Your opion is not humble at all.

  • ETC

    I feel like we have the wrong team for this coach. Last year we had the wrong coach for their team. We need the right team with the right coach. This is just a repeat.

  • nodomo

    7 assists for the whole team is horrible. That means they are just playing ISO chuck up contested shots

  • Rick Johnson

    Looking at some of those turnovers, should Hill be dribbling the ball?

  • blubell

  • MomentousPetey

    SPOT ON AGAIN!

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    We know, BS wasn’t giving him any power to play the PG, just look at the horrible ASTs for the whole team. Wake up guys, it’s the BS coaching which wanted the team to lose to make Kobe look better.

  • ETC

    The team just doesn’t care. It isn’t a JLin issue and the coach knows it. If everything is going to Kobe, who cares how you play when the focus is tanking. You just want to get yours. It is simple.

  • PPP

    Here you go. Love this.

  • MomentousPetey

    I was gonna say something similar, but you articulated it pretty well =).

  • MomentousPetey

    EXACTLY

  • MoominFloren

    Or Lin eating or killing snake ? Kobe is such a liar, so fake at the beginning of the season…..

  • Alaingrvis

    yea i wasn’t calling lin soft btw did you here lin is softer the ronnie. yep again not calling lin of- signed scotty

  • Briiick

    It’s on the BS coaching. I didn’t see any thing other than iso, just disgusting.

  • Lymania

    I see! The only difference here is you do not think he’s handsome like I do(hahahaha,which is very understanding (≧∇≦) other than that, we are completely in the same boat!

  • Maknusia

    Good to see that he is not giving in

  • ETC

    The reporters want to keep on giving these subliminal messages to Byron about Ronnie. Yes, we know…. Why bother.

  • Lymania

    LV overrated. I like channel better. Hehehehe~~

  • Maknusia

    politely debunking the coach

  • PPP

    LOL, everyone offline now to chill?

  • BobbyH

    You know, nowadays it is more fun to read post game tweets than the game itself. How ironic.

  • BobbyH

    Good night from NY.

  • Briiick

    It was disgusting BS coaching if you watched the game, worse than McHale’s Iso.

  • David Kim

    Nathan Gottlieb @zukovka

    Nobody moves, nobody cuts, nobody sets screens. Lin forces shots to try and make something happen and looks like crap.

  • PPP

    Goodnite, I’m from NY too, but now can’t sleep for all the non sense against Lin, haha.

  • Briiick

    Even a pickup game will have more than 7 ASTs. I told you it took the BS coaching to get 7 ASTs and a loss in order to justify Kobe’s Charmin statement.

  • CJSHYY

    Can’t agree more…smh!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Knew all along BS wanted to throw this game from the onset. He is proving to the FO that JLin can’t lead…he is not great neither terrible…just ordinary..

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hey…its Kobe’s team…who dares to win without KB..else backlash in LA

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Next to be DNP-CD

  • CJSHYY

    W Kobe, they couldn’t win either.

  • Maknusia

    you are all good, since you recognize it. We all loose it at times

  • Singapore BB Fan

    The starters plus coach were prepared to throw this game.

  • blubell

    lol why?

  • Maknusia

    for speaking like Lin!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Just saying…out of frustration i guess

  • blubell

    persecution?

  • PPP

    May not be a bad idea. It’s painful to watch the way he was asked to play.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Gave up watching the game after JLin was taking out in first qtr. Frustrated to see how JLin was treated by the starters. Tried to watch off and on but still it was very slow motion and nonexcited. When it’s so hot and humid here in Brisbane, I just couldn’t bother to watch game that will put me to sleep.

  • Maknusia

    I still cant believe thats Kobe. I think there is more to it…i know i know…I may be naive 🙁

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Wow…standing up against the bs coach..#RespectJLin

  • Acbc

    I’m very disappointed in how many posters are saying things like Lin’s just not a starter or isn’t taking charge. First off, LIN is given an assignment to execute OR ELSE. Let’s be real, none of us would be able to in real life go against our bosses and say to them screw you, I’m right, I’m going to do it my way. Not when this boss has been reducing your PT the last few games already. BS has shown that he has absolute control over lin’s PT, so what’s he to do? Go rogue and get to sit on the bench and not even get any PT? It’s a fine line he has to toe. I’m sure that BS has told LIN to pass like Price and run his offence just like Price, or else.

    The real problem is that the offensive game plan that Scott has in place is so dumb that it is bound to fail, just as how Kobe and Price keeps failing. Put it another way, this team is like an old school football team running 3 downs to move the chains. It will not work anymore. In the old days, a quarterback just snapped the ball and handed it to a running back, just like Price is doing bring the ball to Kobe. Modern American football is ALL about short pick passes that moves the chain with a variety of screens and runs to keep the defence from blitzing the defence. Modern day quarterbacks are chess kings of the pieces under his command. Scott is running an old style offence built for ISO midrange shots that used to work just like the old days when pounding the ball with a strong running game used to work. LIN’s real talent is in utilizing ALL of his players including the wide receivers, tight ends, slot backs. If Scott has told LIN that all he wants LIN to do is to hand off the balls to his running backs then LIN can’t ever be successful in running an offence becasue the scheme sucks!

    7 assist, the low 3 points attempts and the low offensive possessions all point to a total failure of the coaching. Asking LIN to defy his boss and risk not playing again is just too much to ask of anyone and totally unfair.

  • Pete Roces

    Lin was asked to play like scrub and Worthy tells him to take charge, are you kidding? If LA wants to tank and glorify Kobe, so be it, why do it at the expense of other players, specifically Lin?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Cats out of the bag…too obvious

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I think a man has to do what a man has to do…some day…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I missed the entire 4th Q…sensed this going to happen

  • PPP

    As I said it before, some posters are just fans of linsanity, not fans of lin. And worst yet, some of them are not even watching how the games was played and making comments based on how many points he had scored or how many assists he had made.

    Pathetic.

  • blubell
  • ETC

    Lin doesn’t care and he shouldn’t. Ronnie is a starter?

  • Maknusia

    I agree with you if Jeremy is a rookie, but as a veteran and to be a leader one need to be assertive and aggressive in your moves. I’m pretty sure, in our work experience many who had climbed the leader had gone against their bosses or mgmt to be where they are now.

  • Briiick

    7 assist = coaching failure = BS’ agenda.

  • PPP

    Well, he can’t say BS system is trash. Got to pick a scapegoat.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Just be tactful when defying orders…may not turn out the way we want…esp there is no support from higher authorities..JLin just doing his job…blame is on BS

  • Acbc

    It’s very easy to say when your not the one whose job is on the line. Do you really think coaches like a player who doesn’t follow orders? Would you have the guts yourself to go against your own bass and risk being fired? A career in the NBA ISNT ended by LIN not showing his talents. He has done that already. It will however be ended if he goes too far and makes a bad name for himself as a selfish player who thinks he knows better than his coaches. Linsnaity happened by divine Karma of convergence of chance. If LIN isn’t on any roster with out a job, that chance would NVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

    Only fools fight a battle they can’t win. The war is won by attrition of will.

  • PPP

    You should know who Lin is and why we follow him.

  • Brent Yen

    word…..so I stayed quiet until the next thread…lol

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Took him so long to figure it out

  • Maknusia

    I’m not blaming Jeremy, My blame from the beginning is on Bscott, to where LAL is. My comment is just about being and being portrait as a leader one has to take it on himself, at times, especially when you are pressed against the wall.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hope he is turning the corner soon. Just frustrating.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The problem is he is NOT the appointed leader in this team.

  • Maknusia

    its good that people are recognizing how bad BScott coaching philosophy is

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    We all want JLin to do well but bb is 5 persons game. If 4 of them basically frozed you out most of the time, you couldn’t do much. JLin wasn’t superman that could force people to play teamball. If the starters and BS had the mind of playing teamball and not isos all game long, this game could be won.

    Another thing the starters are still Kobeball in mind. They are very very slow. Without Kobe, they still walked up to the court instead of running. So so so slow like Kobe was still in the game. It wasn’t JLin game at all.

  • Maknusia

    Leaders are not only appointed but those who cease the moment of opportunity as well…just saying 🙂

  • Maknusia

    fair statement

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agree. A leader needs followers but no starters want to be a follower. They all want to be a leader and don’t see JLin as the leader. What can u do??? Kill the starters/BS?

  • PPP

    You have to have the right enviornment to cease the moment?
    天時,地利, 人和, 缺一不可?

  • Acbc

    It’s a loaded deck LIN is playing against. He fights his own caoch, his own teammates, the refs, the media and his own fans. It’s enough to make you go crazy. LIN however is above all that garbage. He isn’t playing against the bball game, he is playing against a way of life. The selfish players, GMs, coaches, scouts, college recruits and coaches all are protecting their turfs to make sure to wipe away the “fluke” of linsanity. They want so desperately to remove it from history that they all complicitly have lied to each other about it back and forth to make each other believe it.

    Yeah, Lins too nice a guy, but someone has to be the first to say enough is enough. LIN just happens to be strong enough to accept the responsibility to say “. You don’t have to step on others to get ahead “.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    We know Ido has unfollowed Serena Winters on twitter. So may not get a response from him.

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    I like to think of the after effect in New York to fall upon LAL after chasing Lin out….I shouldn’t be thinking of evil. #confession

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks for bringing this obvious to many posters here. Just reading some of the posts below make my blood raise higher than BS and starters now:-)

  • Brent Yen

    CP3 just stuck in the paint and did a pivot move..lol

  • Maknusia

    Its very subjective, so I’m gonna let it go 🙂 peace

  • sws94

    What did Worthy say? I don’t think Lin played that well tonight so if Worthy said he could have done more, I’m sure Lin would agree with him.

  • Lymania

    “天时,地利,人和”
    Sound Like linsanity era. The time is there, the environment is there, and the support is there. ^ _ ^

  • Allen Wayne

    Triple up votes from me for all your posts today.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t worry Ido will show up soon.

  • Tey Ling

    We were happy when Lin was to start this game, but did not anticipate that BS has ISO game plan for this match. How short lived was the happiness, well that’s life and it is tough to stay positive as a Lin fan.

  • blubell

    What would Stu say about this? lol

  • Maknusia

    even on a bad shooting night, he is trying for a triple-double

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Can’t wait

  • PPP

    Unm, linsanity wont be wiped away. It will be forever remembered at least for my livetime.

    Many have concerns about the amount of his next contract if he doesnt provide good stats but ignored that if he fights against his coaches and the team management and be well known in the league,, he may not even has a chance to get a contract at all. They completely disregard that lin is not yet considered a star in the nba and can force his way like melo.

  • Briiick

    Well said.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I anticipated somewhat. I wanted to see what BS was going to pull so that JLin couldn’t outshine KB and made him a fool. He did it right and many people blamed JLin for this stunt. They bought into the bs of BS.

  • Maknusia

    what a night for KIrving – 12-18 shooting with 37pts

  • Brent Yen

    And he was wide open for so many occasions…lol

  • Allen Wayne

    I know! I was about to name names. Quite a few frequent posters should pack up and move back to the other site.

  • Briiick

    Well said. You guys have got to realize how easy it is for a coach to screw any player if he doesn’t want to win. And the BS coach is one.

  • Brent Yen

    Not that bad……lol….just move on….

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Please don’t suggest that…I want to stay…just vending …

  • JoeTeam

    Thank you, I missed the game and got creamed in fantasy do now I know it’s bsc

  • Allen Wayne

    Yes, a lot of ” Jeremy you got to do this. Jeremy Lin you got to do that” today. Seriously

  • blubell
  • Tey Ling

    If a team has only 7 assists, it is the game plan that is the issue. Hopefully people take note of it. Previously there were several postings predicting a loss for this game as Lakers mission is to tank, so why should BS be upset or is he pretending to be upset? If tanking is true, guess similar results as today should be our expectation. What a crappy thought.

  • Brent Yen

    Too bad some of Lin’s shots were not ideal…..harder to make. Let hope he can knock down some more next game! Out of the curl….Hill never handoff to Lin. He ALWAYS give it to Kobe. at least 10 possessions were broken because of this.

  • JoeTeam

    That’s why I say he’s where the soul wants to go.

  • Brent Yen

    vending? lol I want some Snickers…

  • MoominFloren

    Forget about the game & posts. I’m enjoying my lunch at Moomin cafe 🙂

    You will feel better when you know it’s only 89 days left to free Lin!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    You see LAL is competing with Jazz to get the bottom spot

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Ya take a break..:) the frustration vending machine..

  • blubell

    mmmm. my favorite chocolate bar when i want to vent lol

  • JJ Hui

    Seems like a lot of gangsters came to this board and suddenly this board is not a good place to be anymore!

  • Briiick

    There is obviously a fight between BS/KB and the F/O. I guess the F/O likes Lin
    and wants to shut down Kobe, but BS is fighting back to screw Lin
    since he doesn’t want to win when Kobe isn’t on the floor.

  • Brent Yen

    This is always a good place to me

  • jolno

    Toughness is so overrated in basketball. We’re not talking about boxing of MMA here! Being tough will not help you make more shots or defend better lol. You know Price is really horrible compared to Lin when BS needs to resort to use “toughness” to give Price the edge. Well, it is simply BS spewing BS again (pun intended lol).

    As for the game itself, Lin got shafted by the refs AGAIN. It’s really a joke how the refs can just cheat him like tonight without facing any repercussions. The repeated no calls resulted in either turnovers or missed shots which really hurt Lin’s stats. That and-one “foul” on Hayward just left me shaking my head because I don’t think Lin even touched him. It’s already tough enough for Lin to go against his stone-age coach, all these biased refereeing just made it even more difficult for Lin to excel. It’s good to see that Lin is really not backing down from all the random criticisms BS threw his way. Only roughly four months to go before Lin can become a free agent to leave this mess!

  • blubell

    what gangsters?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    How can he seize the leadership role when the other on team don’t recognize it as well. Jeremy is a leader on his OWN. He doesn’t have the followers though.

  • Brent Yen

    I think toughness is important, however, I do not see how Ronnie is any tougher than Lin is?

  • JJ Hui

    Not you, dont worry!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No prob of “vending.” Shooting the anger on the right person is the key:-)

  • Briiick

    It is even excuse for Kobe to get away from his selfish play. Just look at how he treated DH12.

  • Maknusia

    i dont think so….its pretty much same all posters…we are human too, so at times the frustration gets a little overboard 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin’s D is not as bad as people said… & Scott just copy exactly what HOU did to Lin in Lakers again. smh!

  • Maknusia

    Some pictures….with nice smiles…should cool our day!

  • CJSHYY

    Kobe to D12 is not new to him… after 19 years in NBA, Kobe sure knows how to fight for it.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Thanks..venting…not vending…just bad England…oh…English..

  • Maknusia

    More pictures

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes, we are all frustrated/disappointed that JLin isn’t to cash out this opportunity but knowing BS, as long as there is BS in Lakers, forget it. It isn’t going to happen. That’s why for a long while now I want KB to retire and BS to be fired. Both of them need to leave for Lakers to be a remotely a team again. If they stay, I want JLin to be out as simple as that. Don’t believe JLin will flourish under KB and BS. They may have different agendas but have the same poison toward JLin.

  • nodomo

    True. It was obvious Hill doesn’t want to pass to Lin.

  • Maknusia

    more coming 🙂

  • Maknusia

    not enough?!!!

  • blubell

    Jeremy is the only one hustling…

  • kittyhead

    Because he is Lin…lol Anyway I never like Hill for he kept bashing D’Antoni publicly not give him more playing time and allow him to take those long jumpers while he admitted having drinking problems then. He’s a selfish player who only cares about his stats IMO.

  • Briiick

    Kobe was good at using the media to do some damage to the teammate he felt competitive. He doesn’t have to say a negative word and often pretends to be a friend.

  • jolno

    I don’t see how Ronnie is any tougher than Lin, either. But BS’s definition of “toughness” is certainly a lot different than ours. How can we measure toughness? Is there an objective way to measure it? I just find the word “toughness” often used to justify irrational decisions such as starting Price over Lin because “toughness” is not measurable.

  • Maknusia

    lol, the way Wes looked…darn, how am I going to run with that speed!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hill even brought the ball up in one possession and another one he would rather have the turnover than passing it to the open JLin just in the first few minutes in the game. These weren’t even the only twos. When I saw it, I knew JLin would have a hard time to do anything. He wouldn’t do well when starters didn’t respect him at all.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! He is good to use media to spread the infor out… right now his best partner it’s BS bc Kobe didn’t need to do or say anything bad about Lin or any teammates. BS will do the dirty job for him.

  • blubell

    Hill is not even moving… I think he is still trying to figure out what just happened. lol.

  • JJ Hui

    I suspect some of those are gamblers, not really Lin fans!

  • Maknusia

    no point wasting my energy for something that i cant do…lol

  • blubell

    Never enough… more!

  • blubell

    I just noticed Stu and Bill in the background (second pic)… should crop them out 🙂

  • Briiick

    Exactly. Before he left LA, DH12 asked the F/O why there were a lot of negative articles blaming him for losses he was too injured to even play. It is not hard to take an educated guess about the motivation/sources of these articles, to take the blame from the real cancer of these losses.

  • blubell

    LOL. I wasn’t worried but thank you.

  • blubell

    There are a lot of things he can’t do… he must be full of energy.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    When saw Lin he sees MDA.. will drive him back to drinking again

  • Briiick

    Vote for Lin in ASG ! This is the only thing fans can do to fight back at the BS.

  • Maknusia

    stop probing…just look at the foreground pic

  • KL

    From my observations Hill always passes to Kobe / Price. Boozer often passes to Lin. Honestly I think Hill, Price, Wes Johnson are in a clear little political clique with ageing emperor Kobe.

  • Briiick

    His defense is even worse than Kobe.

  • kittyhead

    Everytime when I see Lin drives to the basket and is fouled hardly and falls down badly without calls and stand up, no complaints,go on to defend, I think he is the toughest player in NBA. BS should be very ashamed of his questioning about Lin’s toughness, full of bias and stupidity.smh

  • Briiick

    Hill understood what BS really wanted when I guess BS asked Lin to pass to him.

  • MoominFloren

    Didn’t notice that…..I can only see Lin in my eyes

  • blubell

    Yes, I love SmiLin 🙂

  • blubell

    Thus no criticism from him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s why they are the chosen starters by KB no matter how they play. JLin is the odd persons out. Unless KB and BS are out of Lakers, JLin is going nowhere with these players. New coach won’t tolerate this kind of players.

  • Maknusia

    I only want BScott to be out. As for Kobe, I just want a coach who can really coach without biasness. And man up to limit Kobe’s minutes

  • blubell

    Agreed. Coach sets the tone and Scott’s favoritism is setting a bad tone, ruining the concept of teamwork.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No coach is able to. Otherwise, Lakers won’t have to face this kind of dilemma. KB is the cancer of this org and needs to be removed so badly. He has come back nicely on Cavs. Now he can leave NBA in a high note.

  • blubell

    highlights

  • Maknusia

    lol…this was pretty close!…

  • webattorney

    Glad I didn’t watch the game after first 7 minutes. It’s telling when Lin and Clarkson have similar stats, and Lin gets worse stats as a starter than as a back-up. If he’s going to play like this as a starter, I rather he plays as a back-up.

  • Briiick

    BS dares the F/O to fire him this season.

  • JoeTeam

    PFV short:

  • Briiick

    BS used to need KB to help lose more games. But now I find that he has learned to lose to some of the worst teams without the help from KB, what an improvement in his coaching skill!

  • Pete Roces

    Time to stay away from LA games, same results as usual. Marginalization of Lin, ISO plays, zero defense etc all lead to more losses, great tanking season by LA, but I’m done, will wait for FA and hopefully, Lin can find his “HOME”.

    Just finished watching the Utah game rerun since I missed live… what a disappointment. All Jeremy was allowed to do was pass pass pass!!! This team can’t position themselves. Full of IDIOTS. Jordan Clarkson played a horrible night, yet STU KEPT PRAISING HIM. They kept playing rerun of Jeremy’s first turnover again and again as if he’s the reason this team sucks!!!! Stu pisses me off. Criticism after criticism. UGH going to bed MAD

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. In my secular job my boss told me to just follow instructions…sure by speaking up you will risk your job..but isn’t it right to speak up and tell the truth than to submit to foolishness?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    You know..I have learnt a lot about Human Resource Management by observing JLin’s journey in the NBA. Think about it there is a wealth of knowledge that we can pick up esp. how we treat our colleagues and subordinates.

  • spiderman

    Good points.

    How does one play an effective brand of basketball if the other 4 pieces are also instructed to play an ineffective brand?

    It would be like asking someone to turn Caesar salad into apple pie. Or like asking Lin to steer a boat to Alaska while everyone has been directed to set the sails toward Mexico. Simply impossible, unless there’s significant mutiny.

  • spiderman

    Severe coaching failure.

    Byron is NOT a coach & Kobe has demolished his legacy from those who are able to appreciate the art of true team basketball

  • spiderman

    Seize …. Yes. But additional important factors are also required.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy Lin has played in every game. I couldn’t say it for Ronnie and Kobe. Who is tougher?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron clearly throws Lin under the bus. Ronnie is not playing. Ronnie is tough. Lin is playing in every game, Lin is not tough enough.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    When Kobe has the ball, everybody keeps moving.
    When Lin has the ball, everybody stands.
    That’s the difference.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy Lin has played in all games this season.
    How many games Kobe and Ronnie have missed?
    I rest my case in toughness!

  • Yascar

    I happen to be an HR Director and I know exactly what you mean. JLin’s time in the NBA is a fascinating study in favouritism, bad bosses and the absolute lack of direction and teamwork. In my humble opinion, Jeremy has done a fantastic job in standing up for what he believes in and staying true to his values. There are lot of people who are far less courageous.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Discovering talent, Equal Opportunities, Organisational 360 Appraisal, Team Bonding, encourage staff Feedback…great stuff. gone are the days of quite submission. Baby Boomers, Gen Y, Gen Z…surely a great divide.

  • KL

    I have noticed generally based on body language (during various interactions) and on court behaviour that Jordan Hill and Wesley Johnson are not close to Jeremy at all.

    I think a rift has started between Lin (plus bench) and guys like Jordan Hill, Wes Johnson and Ronnie Price who are favoured by Kobe / Scott.

    Frankly I cannot see Lin gelling with the starters now. Kobe / Scott have undermined Jeremy so much that these “in-guys” see no need to listen to Jeremy.

    Today was a bad game but at least Lin has played well for a few weeks. We move on.

  • kauaiblue

    I did.

  • kauaiblue

    Fo calls the shots…

  • kauaiblue

    How dumb to side with a weakening power

  • Filler-up

    Wrong – no one moves unless Kobe is playmaking. Lin was not playmaking today.

  • kauaiblue

    I used to love lakers ESPECIALLY byron scott… i remember when he got bashed by sam perkins in 1988 western conf finals going up for a dunk… he got up and made the ft… lakers won… now, i see him as a biased buffoon… and lakers i dont care for… same with nba… im ajlin fan thats it…but he needs to get some fire and stop this serve my stupid teammates crep…

  • kauaiblue

    Ive come to the conclusion that the nba (run by silver and formerly by stern) like hollywood do not want an asian megastar… and that the treatment of and lack of support of jlin are evidence of some hidden agenda to prevent an asian invasion (my theory)… like ivy league schools, there is a “cap” on admissions to prevent asians from taking over student population… holly wood has long been an anti asian bastion… and i believe that race has ALOT to do with it… look more closely

  • Dorothy

    HaHa You just realized that? I have known that for a long time since Lin’s ill treatment at Htown. They want Asian market but they want Americans (either Caucasians or AA) to dominant that market. In their eyes, Lin is not an American. Hope China Kobe fans can wake up and boycot NBA and Kobe.

  • kauaiblue

    Im slow! Lol… and yes i hope those kome fans in china ditch his azz

  • gasparthe2

    IT’s revolting, isn’t it?

  • Bearness

    I was not happy about the game last night. But, after I had time to digest it and read Lin’s comments, I feel much better about it. To me, it seems like Lin is thinking, “OK BS, you want me to do that, sure I will do it. Whatever.” I think he has already mentally separated himself from Lakers and is just biding his time. There is only so much he can do in a toxic environment. Free Lin!

  • Dorothy

    Guys, looking at the treatment Lin has received from every team he has been on and from NBA ref. I feel sad for the future of my own kids. Lin is 100% American with added Asian flavor. With his popularity he is still being treated this way, I do not want to think how my kids will be treated when they grow up.

  • Dorothy

    I think BS strategy worked. He ditched Lin in public right before game to show his dislike of Lin and it did have impact on Lin’s game/confidence. Which coach does that right before the game? BS is worse than McHale. I can not believe anyone can top McHale, but BS achieves that.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    where r you located?

  • Dorothy

    US, I regret that I stayed and my kids were born and raised in the States.

  • Dorothy

    I still remember when I learned Lin was traded to LAL, I could not wait for the season to start. Now, I could not wait for the season to end. Thanks to Kobe, BS, FO and NBA ref.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    US economy is huge…I think you & your children will do well.

  • Maknusia

    no worries, many like me were born and raised here, and we didnt go thru much discrimination or biasness in our life

  • kauaiblue

    Really? Ok

  • Dorothy

    I used to think the discrimination I and my friends receive are due to our less than perfect English and thought my kids would have no problem, but now I do not think so. I think it is against the skin color/race. I am sure my kids will be able to survive and have a descent career, but they will never be given a fair shake just like Lin. That I concluded.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Only now you realize that!!!! I knew that from jerseygate. That was when I was about to give up on NBA. But then I thought JLin was bigger than NBA. I went back to the reason why I root him. It was because of his faith in Christ and he lives to what he preaches. Hence, I held on. Having said that, it was hard to see JLin was dissed by BS, KB, teammates like Hill, Johnson, and Price in lesser degrees, Stu, refs….

    Sometimes I wonder how I can continue to root for JLinwatch Lakers??? What keep me on is because of JLin global family is playing a huge part. Because of JLin, I get to know lots of people. It’s awesome!

  • Dorothy

    I know. If it were not for Lin, I would have quited NBA long ago. There were many times I wanted to give up following Lin because it is too painful, but I still hang on to it after all.
    I really hope Kobe Fans in China understand what kind of personality they are supporting. He and BS basically abuses Lin under the daylight and have no fear of the consequences what’s so ever. I really think it is time for China to boycot NBA and Kobe until Lin gets a fair shake.

  • Dorothy

    If I can survive with descent career, I am sure my kids will too, but we will always be the 2nd class citizen. They will never have the same opportunities their Caucasians friends do. They will always face the unfairness. That is what I did not know. If I have known that, I would have gone back home after I received my education.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Envy you guys making out there in US. Probably “we” Chinese shed that “victim” mentality then we be ok anywhere…Hang on…there will be another Jerry Yang….Ma Yun and others….

  • Brent Yen

    Lin will survive and thrive….just wait and see

  • Brent Yen

    I hear this “2nd class citizen” talk all the time from my relatives who lives here in US. While it is a fact more or less to some depends on the situation. I usually take “If I do not think so, then it is not the case” approach. LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Guess all oversea Chinese feel that way. Sometimes it is worse than others. Among countries that I’ve lived for an extended period of time, US provides the best opportunity as long as you are willing to work. Discrimination wise, US isn’t that bad comparitively. No country is ideal. Every country has its own problems and issues.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Well, sooner or later Kobe fans in China learn this just like JH13 suffers the consequences because of JLin fans.

  • I didn’t get to watch the game last night but it looked like haters (LakeShow Morales, Bresnahan, BScott) were ready to jump on Lin even when other starters (Davis, Wes) struggled in B2B game. Such is the journey of Lin. So many haters but the good thing is a lot more supporters!

    Let’s get ready to move on to the next game. I’ll be out and about today in preparation for 1/19 game.
    Let’s hope and pray that JLin will once again come back strong to silence those doubters!

    I realize being a supporter of Lin is to develop our character of Perseverance and Resilience. Doesn’t matter how many bumps on the road, he’ll always come back up strong. Let’s also persevere and be resilient.

    Get your rest and get ready to go, JLin!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I look forward to your ingame report. 🙂

  • BobbyH

    Hear hear.

    Lin got nothing to lose. Not those haters. When you are facing a wounded amimal with nothing to lose, it is the most dangerous you will ever see.

  • PHX PreGame Thread is now open
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g42-lal-phx-pregame-threadpoll/

    Let’s move on to the next game vs Phx on 1/19
    With 2 days rest, lets’ hope Lin recharge from the B2B game and plan on how to perform well.
    Haters will wait for him to stumble again but if we know Lin, he’s always ready to bounce back strong to silence doubters

  • Brent Yen

    YES!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks for the great reminder. Glad that I have my assessment to take my mind of from all these. Looking forward to hear the best report with pics. Hope JLin will play well in Phoenix and get a win:-)

  • webattorney

    Well, as long as you are in a minority group, there are certain disadvantages. Even Blacks are discriminated in certain settings. Also, USA is going to become more Hispanic, so Hispanics are going to re-conquer USA with their population and numbers. At the same time, how you as an individual think and act do make some differences.

  • webattorney

    Yes, in any country, there are bigots who go out of their way to hurt you. Look at Klanville, USA in some Carolina state.

  • webattorney

    I actually found some discrimination good for my character, in that it made me tougher and more sympathetic towards different groups. So, being discriminated against has some benefits.

  • webattorney

    If it makes you feel better, Blacks also get discriminated in many settings, that I can assure you. My father drove taxi in Wash DC, and he said a majority of taxi drivers, even Black taxi drivers, don’t want to pick up Black customers. One time, he picked up a Black customer who was passed by many taxi cab drivers, and the Black customer was very grateful.

  • Maknusia

    agreed 🙂

  • webattorney

    I am more in line with Joyce Ward’s attitude, except I don’t need to take time off because I only watch Lin games when I got nothing better to do. I watched first 7 minutes yesterday before going out.

  • wandertheglobe

    acbc, I hope you are one of Lin’s advisors or you should be.

  • sport

    Most ABCs grow up being proud as Americans, rarely have I seen them feel like they’re second class citizens even though if immigrate here at a very young age are Americanized with successful careers if they have the leadership skills.
