G44 LAL @ SAS Game Thread

How many minutes will Byron give Jeremy in Kobe’s absence?

Will it be 15, 20, 25 min? Noone knows so we’ll have to watch and see.

Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLin to give his best no matter what the results will be!

Go JLin!  😎

  • Tey Ling

    First

  • Tey Ling

    Postings in Clutchfans – Harden to score 81 on 25th Jan. hmmmm we shall see. Guess every team thinks Lakers is an easy “meat” to slaughter.

  • Sophie Paris

    Ok I’m so gonna watch this game and the one of sunday vs rox 😉

  • Alaingrvis

    you’ve watched every game this year don’t lie lol

  • Briiick

    He is the PG and SG, even DH12’s field goal attempts are under his control. I hope he takes 30 shots, then DH12 will be pissed and let Lin do whatever under the basket.

  • BobbyH

    It is a Lakers Home. Hope refs don’t make those ugly call.

  • Ah.. if Lin can create a spark of Linsanity today followed by a full explosion on Sunday, that would be perfect! LOL

  • BobbyH

    Hope is on BS’s leash.

  • Alaingrvis

    a dream come true but scott won’t allow it

  • Tey Ling

    That is my Prayer … Please God.

  • pandaboy99

    Who wants to bet Sut lantz is going to bring up the fact lin got stolen twice in a row last game

  • JW

    Linsanity not gonna start until Feb. Playing at NY on Feb 1st.

    Linsanity 2.0.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Tough game for you, lin vs parker.

  • lleepar
  • Sophie Paris

    I just enjoy twice more 😉

  • Alaingrvis

    doubt it but could happen

  • JW

    It just did.

  • Tey Ling

    What?????

  • JW

    One way to stop Linsanity. Not play Lin.

    DNP-CD?

  • Alaingrvis

    oh lol wow

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Awesome new lineup!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Greedy girl

  • Alaingrvis

    scott has insulted lin all year

  • BobbyH

    Now what is the reason Clarkson starting over Lin? Tough, Defense, or XXXX?

    Well, no need. Everybody knows.

  • Tey Ling

    New lineup means new starters?

  • Alaingrvis

    davis back with lin

  • Sophie Paris

    Hahaha good catch. I missed some or fall asleep tbh. But I’m particularly ready for those!!! 8)

  • Alaingrvis

    given if lin is the back up

  • BobbyH

    Maybe with Price.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea the hey no injury for him let them tank

  • John Lee

    Might as well bring in Acie Law and Brian Scalabrini.

  • pandaboy99

    Looks like the tank mode is in full force. dont take it personally guys.

  • pandaboy99

    To lose of course

  • JW

    Problem is Lin and others are in contract year and need to show some stats for new team. hard to do not playing much.

  • CJSHYY

    What? Can’t believe this?!

  • pandaboy99

    you wouldnt start sacre if you were trying to win in any and all situations

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly

  • Alaingrvis

    i can tank mode

  • pandaboy99

    lin is a wild card and has proven to be quite formidabble against tank plans, scott and front office had to put a lid on him

  • Alaingrvis

    zero chances lin returns

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol I confess

  • JW

    You should not destroy people’s NBA career but benching them and giving them inconsistent minutes.

  • Sophie Paris

    Gosh

  • Alaingrvis

    boozer like scare starting above me really lin just like w/e ill leave then

  • pandaboy99

    the plan all year for starters to be into a huge hole but make it entertaining enough for the second unit to try real hard to come back only to lose because hole was too big. makes it look like the lakers are competing but in fact want to lose.

  • BobbyH

    BS is running a circus, it seems.

  • Alaingrvis

    hey look the don’t even want to showcase him or see what he has so its very unlikely

  • Alaingrvis

    this year was the kobe show now thats over it full tank mode

  • pandaboy99

    well lakers front office hope lin gets no offers and can swoop him up for vet min. its a win win for them

  • Sophie Paris

    Lmao seriously we gonna have fun tonight xD

  • sws94

    Sacre starts. Amazing.

  • Tey Ling

    BS just endorsed to the world that he is the most s……. Coach and there is nothing in his brains.

  • pandaboy99

    they know exactly what lin offers, and its not worth 10 million if he averages 16 and 8 and lose their 2nd round pick.

  • BobbyH

    Maybe Lakers FO will try hard to trade Lin now that they are in apparently tanking mode.

  • Alaingrvis

    i think management said tank

  • Tey Ling

    Who starts from the bench as PG?

  • BobbyH

    That’s why the Lin’s tweet the other day.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lin I hope… mmh

  • Tey Ling

    If Lakers in tanking mode, I doubt it.

  • Sophie Paris

    They are tanking anyway. Then just make him DNP CD… no need to play 5 min. XD

  • Grace
  • Alaingrvis

    why should lin play if the goal is to lose

  • sws94

    How is that possible when he talks Price up so much? This is a total dumb move by Byron. Let Clarkson play more, don’t start him.

  • Alaingrvis

    trade lin

  • Tey Ling

    All teams in the league may just swap their bench with the starters when playing against the Lakers? I mean it is an insult for opposing starters to play against Lakers new lineup “starters”.

  • Alaingrvis

    what happen to price is tough stuff. trusting scott is like trusting a mental patient

  • Rick Johnson

    Spurs going to embarrass that lineup. Full tank mode.

  • pandaboy99

    why ask questions to answers you already know…. tank

  • BobbyH

    Just DNP – Tanking

    Rest and gear for next year.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea

  • Alaingrvis

    idk why play this year anymore and risk injury

  • BobbyH

    Exactly.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    “Please don’t tell the coach that my son is also half asian” Mrs. Clarkson

  • Grace

    his next contract is in jeopardy

  • Sophie Paris

    Lin is good with 2nd unit. Not price. Whatever let’s see and have a good laugh of that 1st lineup…

  • pandaboy99

    anytime you wonder why? why does byron? why does the lakers? why do they? tank…

  • BobbyH

    1/2 > 1

  • Grace

    I pray a contending team will trade for him.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Still risky

  • BobbyH

    All right, 0>1/2>1

    Happy?

  • Alaingrvis

    nothing he does will change the free agency options. teams that want him will give him a shot other won’t

  • sws94

    Something is seriously wrong with Scott. He’s incompetent.

  • Linja

    BS’s Lin-preservation program is in full swing. PTL.

  • sws94

    You see Price not playing, after all that Byron said about him? I see Lin barely playing and maybe not at all tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    tbh honest this choice today is well for the lakers especially since they don’t see lin as the future understandable. tank play the rookie. lin leaves laker get zero in offseason.

  • bolero

    No, he said his not worried with his next contract .

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • bolero

    Price? LIN DNP CD

  • Yascar

    Agree. Only Lin fans won’t like this one. This is the tank line up. I just wanna know if they will play Lin more for trade bait.

  • kauaiblue

    Lol

  • bolero

    GM and coaches knows what Lin brings

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Let’s vote and see how many min JLin is going to get!! JLin = DNP – CD.

  • Jeremiah

    I’m confused. The head of the snake is now on the bench? And Jeremy is third string? Is this what Jeanie meant we should wait patiently for?

  • BobbyH

    DNP – Tanking

  • grover chang

    The joy in coaching is bringing a group of players together to combine their strengths into a mighty force to win. Scott does not attempt this? Does he even like coaching?

  • MoominFloren

    Excuse me. Is it real? Lin, Boozer, Young Davis, none of them starting???

  • kauaiblue

    Spurs is the only reason i watch nba other than jlin…

  • Tey Ling

    Is Price playing ?

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lakers new lineup it’s not only in full tank mood but also sort of wants to see these 3rd level players who’s never on court that long to show case for their next contract w Lakers.

  • joyce ward

    I think that they might be show casing this group for possible trade. Lakers don’t have any assets to bargain with another team, let’s see if we can sell them in a trade. just some thoughts. Remember Feb 20 is right around the corner.

  • David Kim

    BS is BS

  • CJSHYY

    I think maybe Lin will not play…?

    https://twitter.com/billoram/status/558780480657444864

  • Yascar

    I wonder if BS got a memo to play the young guys. He couldn’t stomach Lin starting so he put Clarkson there. But he may have to play him. This may not be DNP CD yet.

  • Briiick

    kobe enforced the tanking.

  • Yascar

    Yes

  • Tey Ling

    Could they not be showcased as bench players with extended minutes?

  • kauaiblue

    Jlin has a bizarre career man!

  • bolero

    I give up already. Just waiting for Jlin FA

  • sws94

    I don’t know if there’s any logic here. I think Byron is let me just try some new combo of guys and play Lin the least amount of minutes I can.

  • Yascar

    After this game, I’m with you.

  • JJ Hui

    I am going to watch comedy unfold for LAL! LOL!
    Spurs might put the good one against Lin, Young, Boozer, Davis? And where is Wesley Johnson, not starting?

    Wow, this is new Lakers lineup: Clarkson, Ellington, Kelly, Hill and Sacre!

  • Grace Nsns

    Yes, it’s official.

  • kauaiblue

    Sacre is probably what??

  • MomentousPetey

    Perhaps the ethnicity of the fathers side holds higher significance?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin should be in soap opera career in the teams that he is with:-)

  • CJSHYY

    How come no Lin or Young? Maybe they will not even play at all?!

    https://twitter.com/Lakers/status/558761939518898176

  • Tey Ling

    And if Price starts from bench, then the message from BS is Lin is just a 3rd stringer!

  • jolno

    The Lakers have taken TANKING to a new level. Forget about aiming to keep the top-5 pick, they are swinging for the fence (No.1 Pick LOL). Look out Phil and New York, the Lakers are coming to get you to surrender your worst record in the league. As for Lin? DNP – Rest for TANKING

  • JJ Hui

    Seriously fun to see what BBall IQ from BS tonight!

  • Jeremiah

    BS needs an huge kick in the seat of his pants.

  • kauaiblue

    Reality show!

  • grover chang

    Is there an accepted text shorthand for LOL so hard that I’m crying!

  • Alaingrvis

    its a lotto so it isn’t guaranteed also who knows what these draft picks will become

  • gasparthe2

    Lincredible 🙁

  • kauaiblue

    Has anyone seen anything similar before? Just wierd… dont they care about fans?

  • CJSHYY

    I feel sorry for the fans who bought the ticket to see the game now…smh!

  • Tey Ling

    Have to sign off, my heart just burns with rage …. Need to do something else. Ciao…

  • jolno

    Yes they might also strike out while swinging for the HR. But their odds are good for at least a top-3 pick with the worst record in the league. This is truly embarrassing for the Lakers organization. Guess Phil’s full tank in New York really inspired them to try to tank even harder than the Knicks LOL.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Watch a comedy show:-) Let’s see how Pop responds to this lineup!!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s right!!!

  • Jeremiah

    Now I understand. When Kobe plays, Lin has to come off the bench. When Kobe is so injured that he cannot play for the rest of the season, Lin goes to the end of the bench. Lakers are a class organization.

  • MomentousPetey

    Are this year’s draft prospects even any good?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It’s playing @SA right?

  • Alaingrvis

    i heard they where 5 really good players who knows really

  • CJSHYY

    Ya!

  • Jeremiah

    The LA media should be screaming bloody murder. This is FUBAR.

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    I know this lineup is bogus, I am just trying to stay in the positive:)

  • LOL .. they don’t even pretend anymore.
    The Tank is Strong!

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Keep calm.:) going by the number of comments here …probably you’d have guessed… Spurs to BO LAL and JLin may not be too involve in this one.

  • Briiick

    This is why so many educated fans stop watching NBA and its beloved cancers:
    NBA cancer rule number 1. If a cancer plays then no player in his team should outplay him;
    NBA cancer rule number 2. If a cancer doesn’t play then any one potentially better than him should be benched as well.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol come on kobe gets hurt and a rookie starts lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Look at how Kevin Ding explained the lineup. Even more funny!

  • Bearness

    I think this pretty much proves Lakers are not showcasing Lin. So, he won’t be traded. I think Lakers want to lower his value as much as possible so they can make a low-ball offer kind of like what Knicks wanted to do a few years ago. I guess Lin will do whatever he needs to do. But, I am going to be extremely disappointed if he resigns with Lakers under these conditions, especially with BS as coach. Not sure if I will follow his games anymore then.

  • Arsenium12 .

    This was retweeted by the _Lakers_ if you can believe it. Lin can’t be harbouring any illusions now.

    https://twitter.com/TaylorDalton24/status/558789316139155456

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Please tell us how can we be patience ms Buss?

  • joyce ward

    Yep, that s what I think too. I don’t think lin will sign with the Lakers. I think he will have better offers from contending teams.

  • Bearness

    I really hope so. Otherwise, I don’t think I can stomach it.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    please don’t go….watch BS getting sh.t all over his face ….

  • JT

    gratz Lakers, u managed to do wut Houston couldn’t do, Lin to 3rd string! Finally exposed.

  • MoominFloren

    I don’t know wth is going on with this la tankers. What i know is i won’t spend my precious time on watching this cr@p, better for my health.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JC’s brother?

  • here’s a nice picture to go along with it

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/558795040663674881

  • Rick Johnson

    Maybe players with trade value are being held back for an impending trade?

  • joyce ward

    They are tanking

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS applying Sun Tzu Art of War…if you are confused…confuse your opponents as well…

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not going to worry that JLin won’t get any offer from other teams. Too many teams respect his game more than KB. It’s a matter which teams will make offer. JLin is too good for BS to damage his value. He can dim a little but not much. Don’t want JLin stay in Lakers if BS and KB are still in the team. Take any other offer than Lakers. Agree that Lakers won’t trade him this season. This is just BS’ way of belittling JLin to defiant from F/O. Hope and pray F/O has the gut to fire him soon.

  • Briiick

    Kobe drove DH12 out of town, now he is driving Lin out of town. Buss’ children are weak, LAL will be struggling like Knicks for many many years.

  • joyce ward
  • CJSHYY

    That’s what I saw… I guess Lin & Young maybe will not even play tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    wes bench as wel

  • I don’t think Lin will resign with the Lakers.
    Based on history, he’s about loyalty and wants to achieve his All-Star goals.

    He can’t do so playing 15-20min as a backup PG for the Lakers.
    Knowing him, he’d sign somewhere else just so he can prove his game vs Byron and the Lakers!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I want to watch this game to see how Spurs slaughters BS. Can’t find any better to see the reality show.

  • Alaingrvis

    maybe

  • nodomo

    BS expecting a loss against the Spurs, so might as well throw in a tank lineup…

  • no worries, I can’t see Lin resign with Byron/Kobe after his worst treatment in the NBA

  • Bearness

    I don’t think he will resign with Lakers either. It’s simply nonsense no matter how you look at it. Hence, I’d be extremely disappointed in Lin if he does. But, I really don’t think that will be the case.

  • Rick Johnson

    If Lin with bench Lin may finally get to play with Davis.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS’s Gambit: If this lineup did not turnout well…it’s expected…but..if by the stroke of luck…BS can become an overnight genius..

  • Alaingrvis

    if

  • Brent Yen

    This is not about tanking or not

  • Briiick

    The more accurate explanation is that BS/KB can’t risk a win against Spurs without KB on the floor.

  • Alaingrvis

    at this point boozer lin should rest like kobe

  • me too. I’d be shocked and disappointed if he resigns with LA.
    It’s just not in his nature, I think. He turned down more endorsement money in NY

  • Alaingrvis
  • Alaingrvis

    what did lin do to this guy

  • Bearness

    I have a feeling Lin will get even less minutes now, ironically.

  • joyce ward
  • Alaingrvis

    if any at all

  • Bearness

    Yeah. Since Kobe is officially done, BS doesn’t even need to pretend to win anymore. So, no need for Lin who only plays to win.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • joyce ward

    Kobe afraid lin will still the spotlight from him. He has to preserve kobe’s legacy. LOL

  • MoominFloren

    At least they can pretend they are fighting? That’s an insult to the opponent, loyal fans and the ones who pay for watching..smh

  • Alaingrvis

    at this point 3 month preserve till offseason.

  • joyce ward

    Lin knows what’s up. He is not worried..You go lin

  • Bearness

    I think Lin might as well go take a vacation with Nash.

  • Alaingrvis

    3 months

  • Alaingrvis

    lol why not

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He all figured it out back before new year. He is all good!

  • John Lee

    Jeremy scared him with his Harvard degree AND high basketball IQ, now BS insecure.

  • Alaingrvis

    leave laker and never return

  • MoominFloren

    SunTzu?? I doubt BS has any idea on this. A Chinese dish? hahaha

  • bolero

    He’s not worried. So we shouldn’t be worried either. Go JLIN

  • Rick Johnson

    I bet Hill is going to look pretty bad without anyone to feed him.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Really? ya…must admit he isn’t that bright…

  • Yascar

    He’s fine. That’s our boy for you all.

  • Alaingrvis

    clarkson isn’t a pg

  • orLinaryjoe

    Run as fast as you can and never look back. Lin’s fast break away from Lakers.

  • grover chang

    I pray Lin may still have some fun and joy tonight. May he end the day with a smile during this crazy situation.

  • LOL Lin doesn’t even bother to try to get in the team huddle
    “Go Tank!”

  • Promo Sports World

    Starting from scratch be great if they release him

  • Singapore BB Fan

    I think so….food dropped all over the place…mess up his face too!

  • Briiick

    LOL, Robert Sacre is the starting C !

  • Alaingrvis

    yep but w/e 3 month

  • nodomo

    Clarkson and Kelly were DNP the last game…and now BS is going to give them starter minutes???

  • Alaingrvis

    well

  • whichever of Price and Lin might not break the Tank, will play more tonight!

  • Alaingrvis

    tank

  • Rick Johnson

    Isn’t Hill the Center? Sacre probably playing PF

  • Briiick

    Could someone put Kobe and BS pushing behing the tank ?

  • joyce ward

    Tank

  • grover chang

    You know you are taking, when Barkley can’t name anyone on your starting line up.

  • Briiick

    OK, it’s still an insult to Spurs’ starters.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    After kobe, bs days are number

  • Alaingrvis

    this will be embarrassing spurs spare them please

  • dave lam

    This is a tank starting lineup

  • nodomo

    Maybe that’s BS’s idiotic strategy – you get to start after a DNP. Ellington also started games after he was DNP.

  • Alaingrvis

    idk

  • KHuang

    I CALLED IT.

    Racist Byron Scott has accelerated Lin’s march toward DNP CD.

    I wrote a few weeks ago that Scott was trying to develop Clarkson and Ellington into suitable replacements for Lin.

    With Price on the bench, Price will get ALL the PG minutes.

    I doubt Lin plays tonight.

  • Yascar

    No Spurs go for it!!! lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just saw pop shake hand with bs saying thanks for benching lin.

  • Brent Yen

    Oh well

  • Alaingrvis

    he failed kobe which was his main job. so if he still got his job who knows

  • Singapore BB Fan

    do you think BS is indirectly insulting Spurs by fielding this starting lineup?

  • Brewkowski

    That means Lin starts next game.

  • Briiick

    Yeah, season ticket holders please demand a refund !

  • Alaingrvis

    rest till free agents

  • Promo Sports World

    Byron ain’t part of the rebuild….just the hack coach while praying for the lottery

  • KHuang

    If Lin doesn’t play, I hope the Lakers get absolutely crushed.

    I’d place a curse on the Lakers, but I don’t need to.

    The Lakers have CURSED THEMSELVES.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No need for hoping.

  • joyce ward

    Yep, he is definitely not a part of the rebuild for this team

  • joyce ward

    Here the Laker are featuring Lin’s Hollywood Nights jersey…smh

  • David Kim

    I like this guy’s comment.

    Timothy Spencer
    Lin is a highly talented player and these sports analysts in this article are WAY off base passing judgement on Lin who was benched for a perennial 3ppg player (Price) and given less minutes than that scrub.

    Folks, I don’t know what is going on between the NBA and sports media, but let’s be real here. Jeremy Lin is WAY better than he’s being treated and I haven’t read ANYONE on the internet trying to make the argument that Ronnie Price should get 28mins a game to Lin’s 18mins a game that has been the recent distribution.

    These “sports analysts” in this article call Lin inconsistent. Well, let’s look at the following facts:

    1. Lin’s minutes are inconsistent.
    2. Lin was benched in favor of a player who arguably isn’t even NBA caliber and wouldn’t start on ANY NBA team. (How does that happen when Lin is actually a capable starter at point guard?)
    3. The Lakers (both in coaching scheme and players’ play execution) aren’t setting ANY screens for Lin so that he can generate scoring….and we all know Lin CAN SCORE.

    The Lakers are obviously marginalizing Lin and if I didn’t know any better, the Lakers coaches and teammates seem keen on ruining Lin’s career. You simply can’t look good as a point guard if your ‘team’ doesn’t want you on the court playing for them, regardless of WHO you are.

    Lin has the talent, but the league and the Lakers seem to not want an Asian ‘star’ player. For what ever reason you want to insert. The facts speak for themselves and the media in this article ought to be ashamed of themselves for not watching the games and not mentioning the amount of minutes and lack of team support in the offense that Lin is afforded.

    Go Spurs!!! Go go go!

  • KHuang

    The Lakers are so looking forward to getting Lebron, Love, Gasol, and Rondo to go with Kobe next season.

    They’re just trying to clear the decks of temps like Lin so that they can hire max contract players at every position.

    I can’t wait for the Lakers to try because the ensuing failure will be BLOODY HILARIOUS.

    7-0 Good job Spurs!

    Never been so much fun supporting the opposing team….

    The only idiots trying to make the case that Price is better than Lin are the race hate trolls on jeremylin.net that insist that Lin is worse than their boy Ronnie Price.

  • KHuang

    The Lakers are clearing their salary decks of unwanted winners like Lin.

    They’re so convinced that Lebron and other max free agents are DYING to get to the Lakers.

    The plan is for the great Byron Scott to coach those max free agents to Showtime!!!!

  • KHuang

    Lin OWNS CLIPPERS and has for quite a while!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    bench or at the box sweet lol why not

  • Singapore BB Fan

    BS called TO….that’s new…

  • Briiick

    Buss children are soft, no match against a Microsoft founder.

  • Promo Sports World

    You’ve been right man….but I’m hoping he will be seen as a backup for a contending team

  • Yascar

    Scroll down for the drama.

  • Promo Sports World

    Lin to clippers….I’m in

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Fun to watch. It’s like an adult toys with little child.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Have feeling pop won’t need to play his staters long

  • Briiick

    Spurs don’t mind playing against a D-league team for an easy win.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Hill and Sacre…Exposed!!

  • MoominFloren

    BS could write his own…………..Art of Tank – The Ultimate Tanker

  • KHuang

    In less than one brutal quarter against the overmatched Jordan Clarkson, Tony Parker has matched his entire scoring output in an entire game against Lin!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Leonard scores

  • Promo Sports World

    What caused the jlin hate? Beyond race????? Thoughts

  • KHuang

    He won’t go there.

    Lin has BEAT UP CHRIS PAUL so badly that Paul actually respects Lin now!

  • Alaingrvis

    this is a toy for spurs

  • Promo Sports World

    And the Spurs got whipped last night

  • kauaiblue

    Religion too dont forget ivy league

  • KHuang

    Nothing BUT race.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Leonard +1

  • MoominFloren

    exactly

  • sws94

    Clarkson can score OK but he looks like a shooting guard.

  • John Lee

    Not true, jealousy is also always there. BS never got the same amount of attention Jeremy did, not even during Showtime Lakers era.

  • KHuang

    Gets scored on easily too, plus the Lakers are GETTING KILLED.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol no lin

  • Alaingrvis

    price in

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Ok price in

  • John Lee

    That’s because he IS a shooting guard. Don’t know what the deal is with the PG label, as he’s got ZERO court vision and rarely passes.

  • BobbyH

    Lakers wants to trade Lin.

  • Promo Sports World

    Race/religion/ivy and fanbase I think…..cause it’s not his play….at his worst he is a top tier backup

  • rookie75094

    well this is the start of Jlin dnp-cd… what bs!!!!

  • KHuang

    No, Lakers want to WAIVE Lin.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin will be DNP tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    well avoid this blow out

  • BobbyH

    That’s even better, right.

  • Rick Johnson

    Was it unexpected?

  • KHuang

    I HATE BEING RIGHT.

    Somebody shoot the messenger (Joeteam, bash me NOW).

  • Promo Sports World

    He needs to pipe up man…..make it uncomfortable

  • Alaingrvis

    either or

  • John Lee

    Love your brutal honesty. LOL

  • KHuang

    Jealousy can be race based too.

  • Linja

    Any nice person here knows how to see the game on line? I guess Lin would be DNP-CD tonight. ??

  • nodomo

    This is total BS…

  • kauaiblue

    I have to say… it has got to be jlins race… no one else would be so abused this way

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What a steal Spirs from NY’s hands. Lakers is very good in this game (being very sarcastic here)

  • bolero

    OK , turn off your PC. Or whatever

  • If Lin is DNP tonight, I will find your original post and tweet it for all the world to see :]
    “@JLin7 DNP – Reason Asian!”

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy make it uncomfortable for the lakers….your smart make it about more than your play

  • KHuang

    I don’t always like it.

    Believe me, I’m not smugly strutting around like a Lin hate troll.

    I feel TERRIBLE for Lin because he’s the Lakers’ best player and it’s HIS TEAM no matter what anybody says or does.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • kauaiblue

    Why dont they?

  • Alaingrvis

    laker have become unwatchable or has alwy been worse today

  • KHuang

    … you are right …

  • Promo Sports World

    Boozer playing

  • rookie75094

    about time …. the world need to be aware of this injustice!!!

  • dave lam

    If Lin doesn’t play.
    Can we root for Jordan then ?
    He is part Asian and he shares the same initials as Jesus Christ

  • BobbyH

    Lakers FO memo to the rest of NBA teams:

    As of tonight, we will DNP -CD Lin. You all know how good he is. We will accommodate your request by keeping him healthy. Please contact Mitch if you are interested,

  • KHuang

    Not after Lin was the BEST PLAYER last game and all the games before that!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    can you tank this obviously

  • kauaiblue

    We should all do that!

  • dons

    Lin is listed in the lineup just above Randle, Bryant, and Nash. Maybe Lin should simply join this group, and the heck with it. Just get paid. Lakers and coach want to totally tank anyways. So disgusting.

  • KHuang

    I cannot root for Clarkson.

    I root against anybody who undeservedly starts over superior players.

  • John Lee

    Jeremy Lin DNP-BS Decision

  • Promo Sports World

    Cavs did this to get Lebron

  • MoominFloren

    I think we can do it RIGHT NOW

  • KHuang

    DNP CD: ASIAN

  • MoominFloren

    He’s not good enough for me to root for him

  • BuzzerBeater

    Yup, not watching a single more minute of the Lakers.

    Hopefully Jeremy lands in a much more desirable spot next season so I can enjoy watching him play again.

  • Yascar

    The Lakers might get away with obviously tanking at away games but what will it be like at Staples? Honest question.

  • Promo Sports World

    Yup

  • John Lee

    Obviously, difficult to root for when it’s NOT merit-based.

  • KHuang

    My BFF Je Ballew from this site reminded me of something:

    Lin will be LEAVING THE LAKERS SOON!

    A small solace to me, but solace nonetheless.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hahaha 28-12 with Joseph knocked down 3

  • Singapore BB Fan

    then we are also guilty of being race bias

  • 1mtoldman

    the la tankers new lineup displayed 2nite by tank commander scott. tanks for the memories.

  • Promo Sports World

    Okc good landing spot in offseason….Jackson will cost too much….feel like Westbrook and Durant will embrace Jeremy’s game

  • Promo Sports World

    Like this season I hope

  • Carol Tiu

    And I thought Ding is respectable.

  • MoominFloren

    Maybe I should watch it……give me a big laugh to start on my sunny Saturday

  • Rick Johnson

    One good thing, don’t have to listen to Stu and Bill trashing Lin

  • Promo Sports World

    All about that draft pick

  • Alaingrvis

    3 months

  • KHuang

    Lin being PUNISHED for KOBE’s INJURY!

  • rookie75094

    final score will be 124 to 60 spurs

  • Linja

    I am afraid to download anything that could bring crap into my computer. Do you have to download Media Player?

  • Rick Johnson

    With $15 Mill

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nope all about not to allowed linsani ty

  • Alaingrvis

    lol looks like it every game

  • nodomo

    Price with a huge mistake – shot the ball with 6 secs left in 1Q and plenty of time on shot clock, he missed, and gave Spurs a chance for last shot. If that was Jeremy, BS would have lit into him…

  • To honor KHuang’s foresight, here’s the tweet
    Please VOTE by Retweet or Favorite

    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/558806983185162243

  • KHuang

    Hopefully in 3 games.

    Just WAIVE Lin and get the Asian guy out of that toxic racism pit.

  • nodomo

    I hope so. If your employer/manager doesn’t value you, it’s time to leave.

  • JJ Hui

    Other Spurs players know Lin is good but intentionaly benched! Lakers dont want Linsanity repeating! I hope Lin comes out and play well to showcase himself!

  • MoominFloren

    No, he’s being punished for outplaying Kobe, stealing the spotlight, being an Asian….

  • BobbyH

    To me, I don’t need to root for the other opponents any more as I won’t waste my life watching Lakers.

  • Guest

    What? Price is IN? LIN is 3rd string? Byron Scott should be tomatoed.

    Turning off this cra#, and watch OKC vs Atlanta (3Q 66-62) — until the Warriors vs Kings game at 7:30.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    LP (31-15)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just watch it for fun. See how Spurs toys with Lakers.
    http://intsports.net/str9.html

  • Rick Johnson

    Can the Spurs just hand JLin a Jersey and come over to their bench now?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    35 vs 15 Go Spurs!!!

  • rookie75094

    I am rooting for the spurs to win 180 to 50 this game

  • KHuang

    YUP YUP YUP

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Spurs thanks BS for not playing JLin!

  • nodomo

    Spurs play such beautiful basketball. Team ball with passes…

  • KHuang

    okie city dokie

  • dons

    What? Price is IN? LIN is 3rd string? Byron Scott should be tomatoed.

    Turning off this cra#, and watch real BB via OKC vs Atlanta (3Q 64-66) — until the Warriors vs Kings game at 7:30.

  • rookie75094

    lets go spurs…make it 200 to 55.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • Linja

    Don’t want to say this, but, KHuang was right on, long ago. an eventual DNP-CD. wow. Take a deep breath.

  • dons

    I go for 140-60. Don’t play Lin, give him a DNP.

  • rookie75094

    lol now the racist refs are helping the lakers look better than they actually are.

  • spiderman

    Play without Jeremy, Byron…. you’ll get a well-deserved blow-out

  • Brent Yen

    So Lin will play garbage time? lol which basically starts now?

  • BobbyH

    Is this DNP BS’s own decision or FO directed it? If it is latter, that would mean a trade is coming.

  • Linja

    cannot believe this is unfolding in front of our eyes.

  • KHuang

    Spurs, KILL KILL KILL!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    no

  • BobbyH

    If that’s the case, I hope Lin refuse to play. No matter the fine would be. Just send a message.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hahahaha 38-20! Go Spurs and slaughter Lakers!

  • KHuang

    I can’t take a deep breath.

    I’m TOO ANGRY at being right.

  • rookie75094

    Jlin will decline to go in the game now… since it is already garbage time

  • Carol Tiu

    Wonder what’s going on through Jeremy’s mind now.

  • Great call Khuang. I had my doubts it would happen but I was wrong and you are right. 🙁

  • Rene#17

    Is Lin getting traded and that’s why he is not playing?

  • KHuang

    Spurs trying to DOUBLE the Lakers score!

    I have no doubt that the Spurs are giggling that Lin isn’t playing.

  • Alaingrvis

    lkers will lose every game from now on.

  • sws94

    So we won’t get to see Jeremy play tonight? Future games?

  • Alaingrvis

    scott just dislike him

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No idea. I have media player in my laptop.

  • KHuang

    Done for the season if he remains a Laker.

  • BobbyH

    So this is the way to honor Kobe, I guess.

  • KHuang

    I’m SORRY that I was right.

    Nobody is unhappier than I am.

    I saw it coming MONTHS AGO, but it happened sooner than I had thought. I figured post trading deadline.

  • JJ Hui

    Nope, never ever dowload anything, they are as bad and poisonous as Byron Scott!

  • Tim Pham

    khuang is a freaking genius. called it way back. i never doubt khuang!

  • rookie75094

    this is Jlin response to bs if he put him in the game now…

  • Tim Pham

    at this rate, i’d rather have lin be dnpd than be a scapegoat and misteated by bs. let them lose..let lin rest and just collect his $

  • MoominFloren

    Lin, please text Nash to play golf & soccer. You have 3 months free time to enjoy your life

  • KHuang

    Like all the anti Lin garbage the Lakers have done, Kobe still gets no respite from getting PUNKED by Lin.

    It would be a true honor to Kobe of the Lakers were winning this game without the Asian guy, but instead the Linless Lakers are DYING!

    Poor Kobe. He’s all busted up AND he cannot even escape the CURSE of Jeremy Lin!!

  • Briiick

    Agreed. Better pull an Asik than play with hands tied and stats ruined.

  • Brent Yen

    This makes me wonder….maybe Lin did speak up…

  • KHuang

    Don’t just play golf and soccer and shoot fun videos with Nash.

    Pick his brain and max out his hoopz skills!

  • BobbyH

    Just hope he got pissed and call his agent to demand a trade if FO doesn’t move already.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes JLin is DNP-CD in this game.

  • Tim Pham

    yep. following orders from bs didn’t get him any pt

  • Peter Truong From Riverside CA

    Clarkson back in

  • KHuang

    AARGH, I hate being right!!!

  • Rick Johnson
  • KHuang

    3rd string PGs ACTUALLY PLAY.

    Lin is a NO STRINGER.

    Lin is no longer part of this despicable Lakers team.

  • Alaingrvis

    we saw this a while ago so

  • BobbyH

    Can Lin refuse to play as 3nd String PG?

  • dons

    Is Tarik Black injured, and that’s why Lin is listed between Black and Randle? I’m watching OKC vs Hawks — exciting game, but checked Bryson’s box score.

  • KHuang

    It makes NO DIFFERENCE.

    Scott has EJECTED LIN from the Lakers.

  • Alaingrvis

    or go on vaca. start looking of new teams now

  • KHuang

    Tarik Black badly injured, cannot play.

    Julius Randle would get into games before Lin does.

  • nodomo

    Hope Lin can stay confident with the DNP-CD. He needs to have that mentality when he was riding the bench in NY before Linsanity – the mentality that he’s going to come in when he gets a chance and prove everyone wrong AGAIN.

  • JJ Hui

    BS is sick and disgusting! Might be KB’s instruction!

  • Linja

    Guess Lin unintentionally out-smarted LAL’s coach. That lowIQ BS just can’t stomach it. Poor BS. pity on him.

  • BobbyH

    I meant legally.

  • Promo Sports World

    Spoke up a while ago….strong minded kid after Houston

  • KHuang

    I KNOW that Lin is remaining confident.

    His UTTER DOMINATION in 2015 indicates that he’s a properly prideful player who beats off all race based hate and plays his game.

    Lin is a GREAT PLAYER with GREAT PLAYER MENTALITY. And I’m right about this too, just like I’m unhappily right about DNP CD Asian!

  • Bearness

    I don’t think it’s just one thing. Probably many thing he has said over time. So, BS was probably itching for this day and now he doesn’t need to pretend anymore.

  • cindystar111

    i think lin’s ok now, he couldn’t possibly still care about BS’s bs.

  • Carol Tiu

    Wonder if Jeremy will grant a postgame interview – or if FO will let him.

  • David Kim

    This game shows lakers BS kobe doesnt
    want Lin to stay lakers next season.
    who will stay when they get treated like this?

  • Alaingrvis

    spurs really not trying hard

  • Bearness

    Totally different situation now and Lin is different too. He will be fine.

  • Promo Sports World

    Start naming realistic destinations folks…

  • deesee5

    I can’t believe that you could be right about DNP-CD… You proved me wrong again! LOL

  • Carol Tiu

    I wish they would though and put 100 over them to make LAL the laughing stock of all NBA.

  • BobbyH

    That’s very interesting. That will hint if FO is behind this.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Lin was promoting Wang’s new album…guess BS is not happy with the…songs in the album.

  • Bearness

    Me neither, but good call. Credit where credit is due.

  • Chipdip

    Toying with the LA Lozers…

  • pandaboy99

    Look how easily clarkson scores

  • KHuang

    Watch.

    The Spurs will CLAMP DOWN on the Lakers after the halftime, especially the rookie who they’ve never faced before.

  • BobbyH

    Boston? As they just said they will take salary dump?

  • KHuang

    Wait until HALFTIME.

    It’ll be OVER for Clarkson once the Spurs return to the court.

    This is the NBA where great teams like the Spurs intentionally allow rookies like Clarkson to go off before CLAMPING DOWN on them.

    When Lin was in Linsanity, teams tried to clamp down on him but got ROASTED EVEN WORSE.

  • cindystar111

    really outrageous, but i believe lin knows BS/FO well by now, he won’t be affected emotionally by this nonsense.

  • Carol Tiu

    JLin might be traded after all. I thought otherwise before this game.

  • Linja

    I take pride to say that Byron Scott’s Lin-preservation Program is in full swing. HA.

  • Carol Tiu

    I certainly hope so.

  • sws94

    It should be Lin/Clarkson/Price. Clarkson can score at least. Clarkson is definitely an up-tempo player.

  • KHuang

    just watch.

    I’m a Spurs fan and this is what they do.

  • BobbyH

    No more Lakers lineup. No need anymore.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Deleted

  • Promo Sports World

    Still blows to see this happen….doesn’t help him….been a real pro and got this in return

  • Carol Tiu

    You’re our nba prophet here now. I believe you.

  • KHuang

    Lin can refuse to play, but he’d be suspended by the Lakers.

    I expect the Lakers to try to suspend Lin in order to get back some of the $15 million, and that’s where Lin and his agents will FIGHT BACK.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I have an emotional rollercoaster right now AND ALL I GET IS THIS? JEREMY NOT PLAYING? WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS?

  • ETC

    I can’t believe no more basketball. It was fun watching while Lin was on the court. If it continues like this, I will need to go back to reading. It was so much fun…. Hope Lin gets traded. He played better this year and gets the bench.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol this game is a joke

  • grover chang

    Anyone have a good movie to recommend?

  • Spurs toying with the Lakers. Manu doing whatever he feels like right now.

  • Brent Yen

    The Asian in the dog house

  • KHuang

    Ginobili is just as physically incapable as Bryant is.

    He’s able to toy with these terrible Lakers when Lin’s not on the court.

  • JJ Hui

    Into the wood, LOL!

  • JW

    only reason I think maybe LAL is in talk to trade Lin. Can’t afford to have Lin get injured.

  • Alaingrvis

    he also know his limits also a lot better off ball shooter and passer

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Most positive comment so far….thanks

  • MoominFloren

    hahaha yes

  • Yascar

    That’s what LG thinks too. But you’ll just never know with BS.

  • KHuang

    No, I think Lakers are moving to WAIVE Lin.

    They want him out of the NBA entirely. They don’t want him to be playing minutes for another team.

  • Alaingrvis

    scott just dislike him

  • Rene#17

    Haha and Price still has ZERO points.

  • xeroid

    Boyhood, probably will win the Academy Award for best picture.

  • JW

    what about this then.
    Byron Scott is a God send to keep Lin’s minutes down so he doesn’t get injured.
    Too much?

  • KHuang

    LG is WRONG as usual.

    NBA traders don’t artificially reduce their trading chips by punishing them for playing well.

  • deesee5

    That could be the truth. Lin is too good to be a third stringer. Makes no sense to me to say Lin is a third stringer because he’s Asian.

  • Rene#17

    Maybe that’s why Lin was doing his lip sink video and looks so happy.

  • BobbyH

    You are watching it now, the art of tanking.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    for whatever reasons …JLin packing his bags and get outta LAL is good.

  • rookie75094

    yes please waive Jlin!!!!

  • CJSHYY
  • KHuang

    Simply a BETTER PLAYER.

    Alain, I know you are a Kobe fan. I respect that.

    Please understand that when I bash Kobe repeatedly, I’m not coming at you at all. You like Kobe for the right reasons and I won’t bash you for them.

  • rookie75094

    lol…the spurs don’t dare to look at the gift horse in the mouth…. their announcers didn’t even mention Jlin once.

  • Carol Tiu

    Aren’t you even gonna ask why, Kevin Ding?

  • David Kim

    Lin! I feel so bad for you. I am sorry there is nothing I can help you right now. But I will give you an advice.
    LEAVE LAKERS ASAP!!!!!
    -NASH

  • JW

    Was Lin’s name mentioned at all during the first half? Even the half time show Lin’s name is not to be mentioned.

  • Alaingrvis

    he didn’t play

  • KHuang

    It is NOT A DISGRACE for Lin to be ejected by this evil racist Scott.

  • dons

    That would be the BEST result! DNP to avoid INJURY before trade.

  • KHuang

    That prediction of mine will likely come true too – and this time, I hope it happens SOON.

  • BobbyH

    How confident is Laker’s FO for trading Lin that they DCP-CD Lin right after Kobe’s done for the season.

    Maybe they were already in talk with some teams already. It is like as quick as flipping the page.

  • rookie75094

    true but they did mourned kobe though… and he didn’t plkay either.

  • Acbc

    Just fake an injury and sit out rest of season.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Kevin Ding is slower than KH on this one….

  • JJ Hui

    Sick and disguting BS coach!
    Lin is just too good, smart and talented, athletic and strong and classy, they are jeolous and couldnt swollow all these!

  • CJSHYY

    It’s different bc Kobe maybe out for the season not Lin…

  • Dan Cohen

    OMG khuang.. can’t believe it.. you are like so right when you say he is trying to get lin to dnp.. Never thought that would happen because you just don’t dnp a 15 million dollar player unless injured. wt??

  • cindystar111

    so kobe can’t play, lin can’t too. just plain ridiculous.

  • Carol Tiu

    Could FO be having talks with Boston right now who made it known that they are willing to take salary dump?

  • KHuang

    I keep saying it:

    NOT trading Lin.

    WAIVING Lin.

    The Lakers are trying to depress Lin’s value so that nobody wants him.

    It’s a cruel race based tactic that is ALREADY BACKFIRING.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    Boston is trying to shed salary, not add it.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Bravo!!!

  • Rene#17

    Worthy and Antoine not saying anything about Lin. So Lin must be traded. They are probably sick that this is the kind of game they have to announce every game

  • grover chang

    Wait! If waived no one could pick him up?

  • CJSHYY

    I got the feeling that TWC couldn’t talk about why Lin was not on court…?!

  • BobbyH

    I respect your opinions, KHuang. I know you are calm. But could you be calmer? ;-D

  • rookie75094

    like I said… they are not looking the gift horse in the mouth.

  • nodomo

    Lakers getting blown out by 20 pts at halftime. Announcers are being strangely positive about it all, talking about Clarkson doing a good job. No one is mentioning the poor play that led to a 20 point deficit…

  • xeroid

    If waived he can sign with anyone.

  • Carol Tiu

    Weren’t they calling up GMs around nba saying they will take salary dump? There was a tweet to that effect yesterday, I think.

  • KHuang

    Scott is trying to gift wrap a consolation prize to Kobe Bryant’s injury.

    See, Scott knows that Kobe was pissed that Lin kept outplaying him. So Scott decided to send a “gift”
    to Kobe to make Kobe happy that his nemesis Lin isn’t a Laker anymore.

    However, the curse of Lin is causing the Lakers to be shockingly bad in such a way that Bryant cannot feel consolation at watching his Lakers DIE LINBARRASINGLY!

  • Rick Johnson
  • BobbyH

    The phase of developing young players began tonight. Those who are not in the future plan will be phased out gradually. Lin is the first to go.

  • xeroid

    and he gets the full $15 million in addition.

  • KHuang

    Boston regularly does STRANGE STUNTS to gauge NBA trade interest.

    If they take Lin, they’ll want at least a 1st round draft pick.

    Never go by what teams say. Go by what they DO – and Boston is dumping salary to get draft picks.

  • Rick Johnson

    Ya Bill and Stu have said nothing negative about any Laker player. So much different than when Lin plays.

  • KHuang

    Announcers are simply relieved that the Asian guy isn’t playing.

  • nodomo

    Jeremy is 5th on the team in PPG, 2nd in assist, 3rd in steals. Makes no sense that he is benched.

  • John Lee

    Makes excellent tanking sense.

  • gasparthe2

    I say that this denigration of Lin’s value started in Houston. Sure it’ll ‘backfire’; where ever Lin goes, his Grace shall follow.

  • KHuang

    I’ll bet that this is the same Josh Slater that Daryl Morey used as a “better” statistical player than Lin when Morey wrote that Feb 2012 HATE ARTICLE about Lin.

  • dave lam

    Watching the Lakers tank is like watching the WWE. People pay to watch and The players give a good show but the ending is rigged

  • KHuang

    RACE BASED SENSE

  • cindystar111

    that’s really twisted, don’t they want their team to be winning, what’s so bad about linsanity for the lakers. the FO is out of their mind playing along with them. anyway, i still believe lin will be able to join another team, hopefully not every team is as sick as the lakers.

  • kauaiblue

    It seems too coincidental that lakers losing so badl and jlin not playing…

  • KHuang

    No.

    If tanking were the case, then guys like Hill who are outscoring Lin would be benched too.

  • Yascar

    What Silver Screen &Roll did is just plain low and unnecessary. They want to mock Lin fans that’s fine, but Jeremy has played for the Lakers all season. He deserves no ridicule at this or any other point of his time with the Lakers.

  • Brent Yen

    If Lin do not play garbage time, I guess it is simply Mitch on the phone right now. If Lin does play the garbage time…then……m….

  • Carol Tiu

    Boston is the one dumping salary and not taking salary dumps?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Bs is a @$!#. Show me one play that Clarkson has to walk the ball and feed to boozer or hill in the post? None

  • KHuang

    You and all of us here know that Lin has CARRIED the Lakers this season.

    He’s been their best performer. Of course the Lakers stink without their best player.

  • rookie75094

    bs is a known liar…. !@#!# BS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • xeroid

    You maybe correct that Kobe was behind this, but I think you are wrong on Laker not trading LIn, there are teams in playoff that knows Lin’s value and wants him.

  • kauaiblue

    What was that crazy show in the beginning where jlin was featured? What was thaf about?

  • BobbyH

    Lin decline to play?

  • KHuang

    Yes.

    That’s what the Rajon Rondo trade was all about: clearing the salary of a nonperforming expensive overrated player.

  • Brent Yen

    Not really

  • KHuang

    I’m NOT WRONG.

    Watch.

  • BobbyH

    Job obligation? Legal?

  • Cookiemole

    Dnp-asian?

  • Brent Yen

    Both..

  • BobbyH

    Cited stress incurred stomach pain that he can’t play?

  • rookie75094

    lol the spurs are toying with the lakers….bs must have made some kind of promise to pop to take it easy on the lakers

  • BobbyH

    What if he does?

  • kauaiblue

    Contractual

  • xeroid

    I predict Jeremy will be a Celtic.

  • Rene#17

    Wonder is BS is fighting with FO and making his statement by benching Lin. Hope so fire BS.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I like how cool Popovich looks like from the sidelines. He’s like, “yeah I’ma just chill….”

  • KHuang

    Byrom Scott and Kobe are angry that an Asian guy Linsanitized them and other African American players.

    Those two fools believe that the NBA is not for Asians and have been hellbent on proving that Linsanity was fake.

    Unfortunately, Lin put up some STELLAR PERFORMANCES against them.

    I wrote that Scott would learn that the only way to stop Lin is to DNP CD Lin. He learned indeed from Linstructor, just as I said Scott would!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Spurs played last night too

  • KHuang

    It did not start in Houston.

    It started the instant Carmelo Anthony got angry that an Asian guy was stealing his spotlight.

  • KHuang

    Not really.

    None of us Lin fans should be calm when Lin is DNP CD ASIAN!!’

  • kauaiblue

    But remember beginning of the season, he was praised and all that… what happened?

  • Acbc

    Phil Jackson used to clip his nails on the sideline.

  • Brent Yen

    Lossing money? and build a image of a selfish player? etc

  • JJ Hui

    Karma will haunt LAL if they are so cruel towards Lin!

  • grover chang

    At Lin preseason press conference did Mitch say I hope you (Lin) finds a home here? Or did he say I hope to find you a home?

  • KHuang

    Today’s beatdown is JUST THE BEGINNING.

  • kauaiblue

    Defensive too.

  • BobbyH

    Well, Lin won’t do that. He will just play.

  • rookie75094

    I hop Jlin get traded to the hawks… who just won 15 straight

  • ETC

    I guess the only way to make Jeremy look bad was to take him out of the game. Mission accomplished BS! You did it. You figured out how to tank the team and Jeremy at the same time!

  • Dan Cohen

    he read this site and lin.net

  • KHuang

    No.

    Byron Scott is trying to prove to the FO that the Lakers play so much better without the Asian guy.

    The FO obeys Scott unquestioningly.

  • ETC

    He said this ain’t your home.

  • Carol Tiu

    They may be trying to pry away from LAL the first round draft pick that came with Jeremy, too. But I don’t think LAL will give it up.

  • grover chang

    No. Risk too high lin disrupts the chemistry. He would then be blamed. Chemistry could be a tenuous thing.

  • BobbyH

    He is not that diligent.

  • Rick Johnson

    I said Hill would be bad without Lin feeding him:

    https://twitter.com/LakerFacts/status/558820710517596160

  • joyce ward

    He didn’t make lin lok bad. He made himself look bad with the tank full on board.

  • dons

    Wasn’t Boozer waived by Chicago?

  • KHuang

    Byron Scott learned the hard way that Lin is such an EXPLOSIVE PLAYER that he can easily score 7 points in less than 5 minutes like he did last game.

    Scott learned that letting Lin stroll onto the court for even minimal time results in BURSTS OF LINSANITY!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Indeed

  • ETC

    The Lakers are getting it done. They are really done.

  • BobbyH

    yeh, just to a eastern team with a striking distance for playoff spot. Boston? Heat?

  • dons

    or Clippers, so he can stay in CA? or Sacramento?

  • kauaiblue

    Wow… really crazy that on 2015 racism against asians is so acceptable… imagine if martial arts were a popular team sports and someone of another race was exiled like jlin… people would be going crazy…

  • ETC

    Well, I guess need to find other entertainment. I also believe that Jeremy needs a hobby during the benching season. I think he should be able to knit or something. Make some Jeremy line scarves or something. More constructive than video games. Maybe go play golf with Nash as someone here suggested.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I feel bad about Jeremy. I’m holding back tears. I know how it feels to be rejected. I know how it feels to be given hope that some people like or believe in you, but then they actually don’t.I know how it feels knowing that you can contribute a lot, but not given the chance. Excuse me while I go get a hanky.

  • gasparthe2

    You know… it would suit that demon Kobe to think that way: SCoTT: “Don’t worry Masta Kobe, watch me sit that Lin fella for you, papi”.

  • JW

    OK. turned off the game. for them not mentioning Lin’s name at all is just strange. Even if he’s DNP, you would think the conversation would come up. Something is definitely up.

  • Brent Yen

    exactly

  • Pete Roces

    Be strong, guys, Jeremy’s good days are still ahead, be optimistic!

  • xeroid

    Come on, you should feel happy that Jeremy is out of this bad situation. He will be traded shortly, mark my word.

  • JW

    Not gonna feel bad for him yet. I really believe he’s getting traded. If he’s to be waived like KHuang is saying, why no mention of his name at all.

  • ETC

    Praying for him!

  • Linja

    OR, Bs is convincing FO this is the only way to get to the top 5.

  • kauaiblue

    Wish i could give u a shoulder… how about a virtual one?

  • Brent Yen

    Not too many of us are really down I think? Not really a surprise….

  • Rene#17

    Save those tears when JLin gets traded this weekend. Tears of joy!!!

  • nodomo

    If DNP was going to happen, Lin should have just gone rogue and got his stats in prior games instead of running plays for BS…

  • gasparthe2

    “LINSANITIZED” HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I feel bad for how Jeremy is feeling right now while seated at the bench or in the locker room.

  • Acbc

    Time to move on and wait to see what will happen to lin next year. May have to take on a new student to coach to pass the time.

    Lin will be great at anything if given a fair chance. It may be time for him to ramp up his legacy by taking his game to China. Help develop a new generation of Asian players and win an Olympic medal, while spreading his ministry.

  • joyce ward
  • IsabeliJane*17

    That’s nice. Thanks.

  • Yascar

    I feel for you. I hope you get through whatever it is you’re going through. Jeremy will be fine.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Im still optimistic he’s involved in a trade!
    Yes yes yes, a new team please.

  • cindystar111

    didn’t he say lin dressed too formally? maybe he wasn’t really care about the signing that’s why the treatment now. well, anyway, LA’s fans are still miles better than houston’s, hopefully lin signs with a good team next season. leave all these bs teams behind.

  • Rene#17

    Don’t see JLin on the bench any more

  • BobbyH

    BS can do anything. Not a surprise. It is just the timing and the speed of phasing out.

  • xeroid

    He’s stronger than you think, to have faith he has to be strong, although I am an atheist I applaud his faith.

  • gasparthe2

    Yeah, well, There 😀 …. sure with Carmelo and J.r Smith too.

  • Linja

    maybe waived at the half time ????

  • MoominFloren

    Maybe he’s packing now …..i hope it’s for the trade

  • kauaiblue

    Hes there

  • grover chang

    Even Philly coach and players are not trying to tank, but BS has no sense of subtlety and obviously goes to tank after Kobe goes down. This is the same man who I watch win three championships. Tragic to see a championship caliber competitor like BS become a shadow of himself. Who ripped this mans heart out and where did they put it. BS is coaching like the walking dead.

  • Sophie Paris

    I hope Lin doesn’t play at all

  • Linja

    Or traded tonight to a contending team. !!! ha

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He’s still human. I don’t count out his human side.Of course faith is the only thing he-BOTH of us-have right now.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Thanks. Pray for Jeremy more please.

  • Linja

    ok, wishful thinking.

  • nodomo

    He’s still on the bench. Maybe a restroom break?

  • JJ Hui

    I hope BS has a really bad dream tonight, that is Lin chasing him into a black hole and never come back!

  • Alaingrvis

    can lin where a suit to the game

  • Briiick

    Yeah, save the mileage for winning a ring in another team!

  • John Lee

    Was on Spurs bench working out details? 😉

  • rookie75094

    I like to see Jlin get up from the bench and go straight to the locker room…. to pack for his new team

  • Carol Tiu

    They know Hill is not the driving force of the team. He’s incapable of carrying the team, so they let him be.

  • Rick Johnson
  • sws94

    I’m disgusted. I really dislike Byron Scott now.

  • Rene#17

    Omg price handling the ball. Sorry just so funny.

  • kauaiblue

    Why did lakers take him in the first place?

  • BobbyH

    Walk to Spurs’ locker room? That will make sense and save a lot of trouble.

  • occupatio

    so have LA announcers said anything? if they know something, they will not say.
    if they dont know anything, they would at least comment about lin’s absence.

  • Acbc

    I’d like to see lin ride his bike at games again.

  • Alaingrvis

    for clarkson is this really experience losing by 20 with zero real defense. this isn’t serious defense he is facing. but what ever

  • kauaiblue

    Well said robin!l

  • rookie75094

    I am ok with that lol

  • joyce ward
  • sws94

    Jerome is wrong. Lin takes some of the fewest shots of any PG.

  • Rene#17

    Then why does Clarkson get the green light to score first.

  • Briiick

    F/O liked him. But Kobe succeeded again in pushing out a competitor as he had done to DH12.

  • Rick Johnson

    Hopefully getting fitted for a Spurs jersey.

  • JW

    is anybody listening to Spurs announcer side? are they saying anything?

  • Tim Pham

    damn sucks…i really wanted to see lin play at msg vs knicks…smh

  • gasparthe2

    Hey, Missy… OUr man Lin has only just begun. Gotta Luv him.

  • rookie75094

    nope … not a word

  • grover chang

    I pity any Lin fan who bought tickets for this game

  • JW

    really? I would guess LAL announcers, but even Spurs?

  • Alaingrvis

    scott did

  • kauaiblue

    What is lakers facts?

  • John Lee

    Or NBA League Pass.

  • Rene#17

    Screw you Stool.

  • ETC

    They should give every Asian that went to see Lin a refund.

  • David Kim

    i wanted to see lin play vs Nets

  • Yascar

    Is Lin at the bench? If he isn’t its usually a sign that he’s been traded. Remember Waiters earlier in the season. My feed as usual is slow. Just asking.

  • John Lee

    NDA until trade is finalized? 😉

  • Alaingrvis

    didnt

  • Tim Pham

    do you think lin will just sit and wait or force a trade or buyout?

  • nodomo

    Announcers finally mentioned Lin is on the bench tonight. Camera then panned over to LIn on the bench

  • joyce ward
  • kauaiblue

    No more leag 4 me…

  • JW

    LAL announcers?

  • grover chang

    I think he is sitting there

  • JJ Hui

    May be FO already told him something, lets see if he tweets something unusual tonight. May be something good happening!

  • Rene#17

    And Stool disses Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    yep

  • Linja

    I do. and the game got black-out in Austin. My LP value just went down to zero.

  • occupatio

    what does he say?

  • Tim Pham

    who cares at this point

  • John Lee

    …then Jeremy gets traded to the Spurs, and you’ll eat crow. LOL

  • nodomo

    LAL announcers. Bill seemed a bit perplexed, mentioned Lin averages 10 PPG and had 20 minutes the other night. Stu said it’s hard for the 3rd guard to get minutes and with Clarkson starting, Lin is odd man out.

  • grover chang

    I think I will watch spur and Atlanta games.

  • ETC

    I think Lin is going to have the best +/- tonight on his team.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • BobbyH

    LOL. That’s the spirit.

  • David Kim

    Will Lakers trade Lin before trade deadline or just let him walk away next summer?

  • Tim Pham

    for once i hope lin asks for a buyout or trade. it’s clear the team is tanking..he doesn’t fit or is wanted..

  • joyce ward
  • sws94

    What is Price doing to be in the game?

  • Linja

    Is that true ESPNLA said that Lin refused to play?

  • rookie75094

    I am officially hate the whole lakers organization starting with bs the liar!!!!

  • ETC

    If he gets traded, it will be easier for me to have a little bit of respect for the Lakers Organization and BS.

  • Lymania

    Hope GOD indeeds brings out something positive and hopeful after all this to his faithful follower like Jeremy Lin.

  • Tim Pham

    i mean, i do understand letting clarkson play if they are just tanking but just let lin go then.

  • nodomo

    I hope the DNP finally pisses Lin off enough that he will not return to play for the Lakers…

  • CJSHYY

    Who said that from ESPN LA? I saw Lin on the bench looks OK to me.

  • John Lee

    Asik was right all along.

  • JW

    OK. then i’m totally confused. was hoping was a trade and they got the gag order

  • kauaiblue

    Then i will buy! No first i will check to see how he is treated… i had a wierd feelin that lakers was not was as good as it seemed… thats why i didnt buy a jersey and why i will never buy one

  • cindystar111

    no buyout. at least get the pay he deserves for all these nonsense.

  • Tim Pham

    at least now lin will only have to wait half a season or till all-star break…he will finally be the chooser agaiin

  • Linja

    Ha, on jeremylin.net.

  • grover chang

    I have faith He will

  • occupatio

    bc it could indicate what is going on. they may know something

  • Briiick

    Yeah, the Buss children didn’t realize BS was real.

  • grover chang

    If Lin plays in garbage time I may lose it!

  • ETC

    This is a teaching moment to our children. Even if you are good at what you do, life isn’t fair.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol wow spurs at a toy store

  • cindystar111

    why not, get paid to watch NBA games unfortunately, it’s lakers games he has to watch though.

  • kauaiblue

    Wow at rate we will have to despise every team… knicks rox lakers…lol

  • Michael

    Scott should play in garbage time.

  • kauaiblue

    Nice one ronnie price… byron scotts responsible

  • Tim Pham

    if that’s the case, i hope he doesnt even shoot..just pass lol

  • nodomo

    Price with 0 pts, just had the ball stolen on the inbound and Mills converted a 3. BS calls a timeout…how does this type of performance deserve playing time over Lin??

  • Chipdip

    The let the Losers come back a bit and now running all over them again

  • Alaingrvis

    laker will lose 15 straight. knicks vs lakers is a toss up

  • ETC

    What are you talking about. This whole game is garbage time.

  • Chipdip

    A Snake play…

  • MomentousPetey

    PATTY MILLS! YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

  • nodomo

    It will suck because he will get 1 or 2 minutes and his PPG will drop

  • Tim Pham

    anyone feel like me? im sort of happy in a sickening way. it’s like the feeling of knowing bs hates lin, and finally confirming it once and for all. it’s like…yes, show your true colors..i’m happy. lin can finally see the truth if he hasn’t before. just focus his energy on the off-season and improving his overall game. he can finally be just a paid “spectator” watching the lakers crumble and laughing from afar

  • nodomo

    Someone needs to ask the obvious question in the locker room. Why is Ronnie playing ahead of Lin? Ronnie with 2 pts last game and 0 pts this game

  • MomentousPetey

    YES! F***C ‘EM UP SPURS! Show the league wut a dispicable organization the Lakers are!

  • Brent Yen

    Man……Ginobolli really looks old now…

  • dons

    Byron’s star PG Price: 15 min 0 pts. Worthless

  • TTNN

    Just got time to the game. KHuang! I HATE YOU!!!!!!!!

  • ETC

    Maybe BS was thinking about a different animal and snake came out of his mouth.

  • joyce ward
  • Michael

    You hate him with love 😛

  • John Lee

    At this rate, 45 game losing streak not out of the question.

  • ETC

    He is playing because he is the head of the snake. It just so happens to be a headless snake.

  • Promo Sports World

    Father time is real man

  • Linja

    Hey, just found out, Lin always plays well against Spurs. Remember? No tanks ? Tank you, bro.

  • Promo Sports World

    Crazy how little play this jeremy treatment gets

  • ETC

    At least it is almost over.

  • David Kim

    I feel so bad for Lin fans who went to watch the game today…

  • ETC

    Yeah, they paid money to support the lakers organization.

  • TTNN

    Price is trying hard to score, now 0-4, and he don’t even bother to defend, walking on the other side of the court.

  • David Kim

    Please refund my league pass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    while earning 14 million lol i feel sorry as well

  • John Lee

    BS officially most elite tanker in the league. Will definitely get more offers by other tanking NBA teams in the future.

  • joyce ward
  • MoominFloren

    I will burn my Tankers Lin jersey once he’s freed!

  • Promo Sports World

    Price is a pawn too….they are all pawns….all about Kobe passing MJ and throwing Shade at Jeremy for actually wanting to win

  • joyce ward
  • Dan Cohen

    wow..interesting.. minutes…. VERY well balanced.. averaging 22 mins PER player.. EXCEPT lin. = zero.

  • sport

    Why wait?

  • BobbyH

    Sell it on eBay and donate it to JLIN Foundation.

  • Yascar

    Well at least some casual fans are realizing we’re not crazy after all. Everyone can see the bias now.

  • John Lee

    Byron Scott, the inventor of stopwatch coaching.

  • joyce ward
  • Carol Tiu

    He feels ashamed being used by a tanking team.

  • Dan Cohen

    I bet you any dollar amount that one question that BS in postgame will be asked is:
    “Why was Jeremy on the bench tonight”.
    Wanna go for double jeapordy.

  • MoominFloren

    Good idea

  • occupatio

    watch byron play lin in super-garbage time just to insult him

  • John Lee

    Depressing is suing for libel and defamation.

  • DJSlik

    cuz he’s TANKING!!!!

  • BobbyH

    Lin will play to honor his obligation. And most of the media will all favor Lin.

  • grover chang

    Why does Scott stand up looking tense. Is he afraid they may accidentally win?

  • Yascar

    SAS starters aren’t coming back.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lol

  • Filler-up

    I was thinking goat.

  • Alaingrvis

    hope lin goes to the spurs

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s trying to rehearse his lines what to say to the media postgame.

  • Keith

    Did Khuang say that Ronnie Price is going to play tonight after Byron Scott announce Clarkson will be starter?

  • ETC

    I think he needs to use the rest room and can’t leave.

  • Dorothy

    lol, pretending he is the coach

  • occupatio

    i am incredulous. this is just so sad.

  • Alaingrvis

    spurs have played 4 centers and 3 pgs. pop plays the best players

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He has been standing up for the whole time in my memory. Very defensive look!

  • MoominFloren

    His look……my heart is breaking…..

  • ETC

    See when you finally play the way BS wants you to, you get the bench. So rewarding.

  • Dorothy

    I know, same here. I really want to punch BS and LAL FO in the face.

  • chan c

    JLin asked for a rest night? Is this true?

  • joyce ward
  • BobbyH

    It would be interesting to see what BS say about Lin if at all. If nothing, trade is coming.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He’s said lin will have dnp cd long ago

  • joyce ward
  • Marie Simon

    he’s constipated…

  • IsabeliJane*17

    If he asked for a rest, it would be DNP – Coach’s Decision. So far his stat sheets are on, waiting to be filled.

  • joyce ward
  • Carol Tiu

    Why are the Spurs being kind to LAL? They haven’t even scored 100. Can you imagine that?

  • nodomo

    no, it was a joke by the announcer

  • BobbyH

    B2B and take it easy.

  • Rick Johnson

    B2B, players old, Pop doesn’t work his players more than necessary.

  • occupatio

    they dont overplay their players to chase empty stats. unlike some ppl

  • grover chang

    Who said earlier that Lin would have the best plus minus. That was gold

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Oh…I just realized Spurs was on a B2B…No wonder players like Diaw and Manu looked so slow

  • Yascar

    I think I’m gonna cry. Our boy!!!!

  • Chipdip

    What does BS want to prove? Clearly, without Lin there, the Lakers sucks even with Kobe playing. Tonight is another example. Lakers, please trade Lin instead of sitting him please/

  • ETC

    I did! Do I get the same prize as Khuang?

  • BobbyH

    He is above this.

  • Tommy

    Yeah I noticed that too. Lin seems to be in a good mood. He must know something. He normally just rushes to the locker room when he isn’t happy. Stayed and congratulated his teammates giving high fives.

  • Carol Tiu

    It might be his last time to do that.

  • Love Lin

    A player w/gr8 class.. Always~~~

  • Sophie Paris

    It’s okay Lakers can tank without him. He’s now officially paid for not playing lol

  • Sophie Paris

    I wonder is Lin gonna ever play again? VS Rox sunday?

  • Filler-up

    No way that is true.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • chan c

    Ugh. What is happening?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Don’t know what this JLin’s hater will do. Most likely he will DNP JLin again until FO gives in to trade JLin or BS is fired. Believe this is BS dares FO to fire him.

  • JW

    Maybe BS talked to Lin saying we are tanking. Lin refuse to tank any games so he’s DNP-CD

  • Carol Tiu

    I guess it’s an honor to be DNP-CD in a tanking team.

  • Linja

    Tank you.

  • Brent Yen

    lol good point

  • Marie Simon

    like that a lot…

  • joyce ward
  • JW

    what? so he wasn’t watching the LAL developing the young players?

  • Acbc

    Constipated with BS FROMBOTH ENDS.

  • CJSHYY

    I think they sure talked to him before the game… He looked OK to me just a little bit bored sometimes… I believe today’s about show case from Clarkson & Price.

  • ETC

    I thank everyone for keeping me company blogging. I am sure we had more fun making fun of BS than the laker fans watching the game. Even when Jeremy is on the bench, it can be more fun than watching them play.

  • BobbyH

    Hear hear. Lakers fans are stuck for a looooooooooong time.

  • occupatio

    =)

    im still stunned at what is happening, whatever that is.

  • Carol Tiu

    Lol. Magic is subtle.

  • BobbyH

    Lakers is for real too, starting tonight.

  • dave lam

    Tanking ought to be penalized not rewarded

  • Briiick

    I read some speculations from other sites, here is one that is interesting (sorry no link): KB is done for the season; F/O may have talked to Lin on signing up as a backup PG during the summer, and promised to let him play freely during the rest of the season. Let me say it for Lin, NO !

  • CJSHYY

    Of course, in his mind Lakers w/o Kobe it’s garbage… he will not watch the game.

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott: “Give Ronnie a look, I know what Jeremy can do”

    He doesn’t know what Ronnie can do? We all know what Ronnie can do, how long has he been in the league. He’s a career 3rd PG.

  • occupatio

    either the lakers reporters are totally afraid to stir the pot to even approach the org about this, or they already have and dont want to announce a trade before it is a official and completed. id go either way on this one.

  • Brent Yen

    He was…free…on the bench

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    what

    What a reservoir of good will Scott has for Ronnie Price.

    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/558837941212950530

  • BobbyH

    TRADE COMING

  • Briiick

    Yeah, being punished for it.

  • MoominFloren

    Don’t you see enough after several 0 point games and many single digit point games?!!

  • blubell
  • occupatio

    cuz we are 40 games into the season and hes not sure what ronnie price can do with all his minutes so far. lol. im not even going to try to get my head around that nonsense

  • ETC

    How many looks do you need ? LOL

  • BobbyH

    pit thicken…. Oops, I meant Plot.

  • occupatio

    its happening. new ronnie price is here.

    https://twitter.com/SerenaWinters/status/558837491352891392

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    no don’t play him

  • Briiick

    I am not sure what BScott is good at besides using tanking to mask his failure.

  • David Kim

    just trade him

  • Alaingrvis

    this

  • DaBoss

    Ronnie has certainly proven he can do …. not much!

  • Brent Yen

    I would be sad if it was Clarkson ended up being traded..

  • Carol Tiu

    Can it be any more disgusting than that?

  • Promo Sports World

    Nah he is staying…young and cheap with upside

  • ETC

    Next game BS: “Didn’t I tell you, I’m not going to play him again.”

  • David Kim

    i think Lin will get trade.

  • MoominFloren

    @#$%!^&%

  • Brent Yen

    I do not see the upside…but indeed young..

  • Alaingrvis

    other it lin but i just think scott dislike him

  • sws94

    0 TOs for Lin, Byron is happy.

  • BobbyH

    Yeh, I know.

  • sws94

    Good athleticism.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Brent Yen

    NBA should have look PAST athleticism a long long time ago…

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Chipdip

    BS does not know anything. He still does not know Price can play 3rd string PG.

  • Carol Tiu

    Lol. Will there be any takers?

  • occupatio

    if we take that at face value, it means ‘i already know lin isn’t very good’

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir…..

  • DLin

    To all Christian Lin fans – let’s pray for him tonight. Never underestimate the power of prayer. He needs it more than ever. The devil tries his best to crucify his followers – which our boy is one of. Pray that he will be in a better scenario and bring more glory to God and inspire more kids that it pays to live a Godly life (God Willing). Best scenario would be waived – It would save Lakers money if they plan is not to play him per NBA provisions below.

    “Released/waived players with guaranteed contracts continue to be included in their former team’s payroll. Players whose contracts are guaranteed are included in team salary in the amount they made while they were with the team. Players on non-guaranteed “summer contracts” are not included in team salary unless they make the regular season roster.

    If another team signs a released player who had a guaranteed contract (as long as the player has cleared waivers), the player’s original team is allowed to reduce the amount of money they still owe the player (and lower their team payroll) by the right of set-off. This is true if the player signs with any professional team—it does not even have to be an NBA team. The amount the original team gets to set off is limited to one-half the difference between the player’s new salary and a pro-rated share of the minimum salary for a one-year veteran (if the player is a rookie, then the rookie minimum is used instead).”

  • Martinez

    This is worse than saying Lin is no good he really couldnt find him any minutes

  • Martinez

    I think he meant it
    which is even worse than guaranteeing Lin would forever be a 3rd string under him
    because if Lin plays here and there like 5-10mins its not good for him
    back to GSW days

  • Job713

    Please trade JLin to a playoff bound team NOW. I’m done watching this team. I can’t believe I wasted my precious sleep staying up to watch Lakers game and subject my family to lack-of-sleep crankiness the past few months.

  • MoominFloren

    Oh this reminds me “I like Jeremy, I really do” …….

  • Carol Tiu

    Like he didn’t know kobe’s status after NO game.

  • joyce ward

    What does all that mean?

  • occupatio

    byron knows what ‘lin can do’ and therefore plays him only 20 minutes when he does play. he has already decided what kind of player lin is, and nothing will change his mind. that is the very definition of prejudice.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir~

  • Keith

    Sound like little kid to me

  • ETC

    He can still brag.

  • cindystar111

    even a rookie starts over lin. yeah right.

  • DLin

    They save money Probably several mllion by waiving Lin if he gets picked up (after waiver wires clear).

  • Brent Yen

    Sound like he is about “me me me”

  • cindystar111

    lin should just fly kick him in the face, just kidding.

  • Love Lin

    U just nailed it.. no team spirit, unlike Lin..

  • Carol Tiu

    So this is what he’s been rehearsing for postgame.

  • JoeTeam

    Green me.

  • cindystar111

    he’s just starting because “anyone but lin agenda”.

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    How in the world did this guy get any coaching gig? I can coach better than this for 1/8 of the money he is getting.

  • livyrlife

    sounds like the brainless hunk who likes to attract our attention at the gym. smh

  • Sophie Paris

    Like he wasn’t looking the past 20 games? Please…

  • occupatio

    hes very young, basically a kid. /shrugs

  • JJ Hui

    You know how low IQ this BS coach ! He is the stupidest coach of the year!

  • Alaingrvis
  • BobbyH

    So if Lin got waived and got another offer, said 3M, Lakers got 1M from cap space (3M-1M) and Lin got 8M + 3M?

  • Carol Tiu

    freely.. as in no need to play but getting paid?

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Brainless hunks are like stale bread to me.I don’t like them.

  • cindystar111

    isn’t the lakers a classy organization? i don’t feel they are any different to BS treating lin like this, no respect. disgusting,

  • JoeTeam

    Well, hello KHuang. I admit I was wrong. Bsc dnpcd’d Lin. Hmm… something good is in the wind. Always good when bad logic is taken to a conclusion (bsc’s).

  • occupatio

    cuz he knows he would lose his cool

  • cshot

    dont was yalls time with this uneducated soul Lin fans~~~

  • DLin

    Something like that. Even though Lin makes less – the drop in his marketability value will probably less, especially if Rockets or Spurs pick him up.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    He deserves NOT to speak to the media. He doesn’t owe them anything.

  • ETC

    So not right. I pray that the author of this article realizes someday what he said. You reap what you sow.

  • Keith

    What does he have to say when he did not play

  • BobbyH

    Make less? I thought 15M is guaranteed?

  • cshot

    if youguys want to see more idiotic responses, look for the tweets he sent back to me lol

  • Arsenium12 .

    It’s striking the lack of goodwill toward Lin. The beat writers are all tweeting this now. …

    https://twitter.com/billoram/status/558842041757487104

  • Keith

    After DNP, Lin went DNI

  • JoeTeam

    Oblivious guy …

  • Brent Yen

    Hahaha….

  • cindystar111

    well, maybe that’s what BS wants, he’s too jealous lin can talk like a real coach when he can only spew out bs after bs.

  • occupatio

    oh its bill oram

  • chan c

    Everybody’s fed up!

  • DLin

    Based on the language above – not so guaranteed.

  • joyce ward
  • chan c

    Ha ha I feel for your family.

  • ETC

    That is so not right. Praying for Jeremy. They not just kick him when he is down, they run the car over him a few times.

  • occupatio

    those asians, they are sneaky like that

  • livyrlife

    Not sure how those Jeremy fans who have bought Jeremy’s Lakers jersey feel…i’m glad i didn’t give the lakers a single dime. disgusting org!!!

  • blubell

    lol. who else?

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Why interview a player who DNP

  • jolno

    Guess BS’s answer to tank without Kobe “Tank General” Bryant is to play without their anti-tank leader in Lin. Now looking back, Lin was sent to the bench shortly after saying that he still believed the Lakers could make the playoffs. It’s an unfortunate situation for Lin who only wants to win.

    Obviously it would be naive to say that race did not play a role in BS’s actions towards Lin. Nevertheless, it’s not like the Lakers care too much about revenues from Asians after being the most profitable team again. I guess we can only hope Lin to stay positive throughout this circus.

  • Sophie Paris

    I don’t know what he could have said about the game since he didn’t play. But reporters just want gossips ^^

  • IsabeliJane*17

    This (bleep) deserves a high five… in the face… with a metal glove..

  • Carol Tiu

    Will he get paid if he’s fired? If he resigns, he might be able to bargain his contract.

  • livyrlife

    Look, i seriously believe that Jeremy’s dnp-coach’d decision is effectively kobe’s decision.

  • deesee5

    I really wonder what the reason was. Trade? Tank strategy? Injury? And lastly racism? It really makes no sense to me to DNP Lin like that. He is clearly better than everyone on that team. I’m looking forward to the answers.

  • Beidou

    What does Bill expect? What would Bill do if he was Jeremy?

  • occupatio

    it’s an absurd world. i now live in khuang’s world. crazy thought.

  • Alaingrvis

    chances lin leaves over 5000

  • nodomo

    OK Byron like you said you got another look at Ronnie tonight. He scored 0 pts. Last game he scored 2 pts. Your next move???

  • guest

    striking contrast between Bill Oram’s tweet below and more factual tweet from Holmes. Using words like “hasty” and “sneaked” is subjective and damning.

  • blubell
  • ETC

    Get him back as starter.

  • chan c

    Pathetic… Smh

  • cindystar111

    some people should just tweet this classless reporter a F word. what do you want him to say? what do you mean sneaked out?

  • Alaingrvis

    idc don’t play lin on this tank team. trade him. release him waive him

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t RT for BO.

  • Linja

    Clarkson back to the bench? Ha

  • Sophie Paris

    Next game Price gonna score -2 pts lol

  • Brent Yen

    LOL @disqus_SyuAk23JI7:disqus be like….wth did I do?

  • ETC

    That is so clever. Score for the other team!

  • Jedi

    LOL!!! That’s very nice to see, especially tonight.

  • Rick Johnson
  • livyrlife

    I can’t believe I declined a nice hitea invites to a 6star hotel just to watch Jeremy DBP-coach’s decision.

  • jolno

    Conflict of interest. Winning vs tanking Lakers. Blatant favoritism and racism on BS’s part. What else can you say?

  • MoominFloren

    See the reply by Lin on Twitter? “I was there…No one else had questions for me”

  • Keith

    @LakersNation @BaxterHolmes i was there and spoke to a reporter. no one else had questions for me— Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) January 24, 2015

  • Singapore BB Fan

    JLin wanted so much to play in all 82 this season. Now BS denied him this chance.

  • blubell

    Haha. Jeremy pointing out reporters’ incompetence.

  • CJSHYY
  • Yascar

    Good for you Jeremy!!!! Speak!!!!!

  • Beidou

    Do you think he should stay and talk? Mr. Baxter.

  • jolno

    Let’s not get worked up by this sorry excuse of a human being. He purposely chose those words to get controversies and it’s better to treat him like he did not exist rather than retweet for him.

  • Rick Johnson

    Jeremy LinVerified account‏@JLin7

    @LakersNation @BaxterHolmes i got you guys though! Lmk if you guys have any questions tmrw after practice…must have missed you guys!!

  • KHuang

    Price has ALREADY been doing far worse than -2 every game.

  • nodomo

    Technically he did when he lost the ball and Spurs scored

  • Job713

    JLin not letting anybody write the narrative.

  • KHuang

    Ya, wth did I do??!

  • Alaingrvis

    oh sh……

  • Sophie Paris

    It was even 3pts by Mills

  • Sophie Paris

    He gonna make an Asik lol

  • deesee5

    Lol, that could be it. Lin always put in the effort. His efforts could potentially ruin project tank!

  • Sophie Paris

    Yea or send him to me I’ll take better care of him ^^

  • blubell

    what is Lmk?

  • jolno

    Let me know.

  • Sophie Paris

    And no report of that reporter?

  • occupatio

    In Scott’s mind, that is not the real Ronnie price. He has yet to show what he can Really do

  • KHuang

    Hello Joeteam.

    I have faced this same DNP CD dynamic in my own life, TOO MANY TIMES.

    My whole life was a DNP CD Asian until I got older and meaner and punchier.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol thirsty

  • cshot

    I LOVE JEREMY!!!

  • KHuang

    RACISM.

    NO OTHER REASON!

    How many times do I have to keep stating that?

  • ETC

    Praying for him!

  • CJSHYY

    Maybe it’s from Spurs not Lakers.

  • Alaingrvis

    -3

  • Alaingrvis

    he one up’d it

  • Carol Tiu

    A little too presumptuous, aren’t you?

  • KHuang

    WHAT A LIAR!!!

    Lin is DONE for the season.

  • Linja

    A coach abusing his power: single-handedly destroyed KB, by allowing KB to chase MJ’s record without considering the reality of an aging body, single-handedly destroy JLin by publically humiliating him (Just because JLin is obviously much much smarter than the coach) , publically stating JLin has no impact on the team when it is just the opposite.
    I have never heard of such a Bond-headed “coach” that acts so un-coach-like.

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s just starting because it’s a tanking team.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin probably left early but was pissed they tried to paint him as disgruntle after the dnp

  • Singapore BB Fan

    After 40 games he had seen nothing yet from RP. So who he wants to bs.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Alaingrvis

    even if he is lol politics lin is good at it

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    lol please

  • Linja

    Tank you, full of BS.

  • cindystar111

    i won’t listen to any of his nonsense.

  • Jedi

    From his quick response to the tweets, it’s clear that Jeremy does read his media.
    So I wonder if he was thinking about what his fans are gonna say about his DNP as he was on the bench.
    Probably something like: I probably have to duck and lay low while the bullets fly. Better be careful what I say.
    😛

  • blubell
  • Beidou

    Good answer from Jeremy. Take the high ground.

  • livyrlife

    Your 1st line already got me tearing up, IJ.

    Godspeed Jeremy.

  • KHuang

    Lin PUNKING the hateful racist reporter Bill Oram about “sneaking” out of interviews.

    Good to see the hated Asian guy standing up to the evil racist American media.

  • Briiick

    As if we believe you are able to do something else besides tanking.

  • blubell

    thanks!

  • Brent Yen

    Took sometime to unfollow all LAL related accounts. Will just focus on Lin and Lin fans’

  • jolno

    Hmm, BS is either a liar or a comedian. Maybe he is a little bit of both lol.

  • KHuang

    Byron Scott LYING LYING LYING about “possibly playing Lin again”.

    Lin is DONE for the season.

  • John Lee

    Good reminder, gonna do the same right now.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol still technically he was there lol lin is smart.

  • Linja

    That is a person with character and integrity ! Lin, the true Witness.

  • Alaingrvis

    for his good he better be tnking lol or he may be the biggest buffoon ever

  • cindystar111

    i think he ignored bill orgm on purpose, haha.

  • Job713

    Has anyone posted a highlights video yet (of Lin sitting on the bench and cheering on the team)?

    I had this game on DVR, and kept on fast forwarding / skipping forward expecting Lin to come in. 30 seconds later, the game was over.

  • Rick Johnson

    Never thought I’d ever root for the Rockets again but if BScott plans to DNP JLin again I hope the Rockets mop Staples Center with the Lakers Sunday.

  • KHuang

    Nobody should be surprised that the American media is INVENTING LIES about Lin.

    The American media HATES Asians and will cheat and lie to make Asians look bad.

  • Sophie Paris

    Yep that’s what I do, my feed is almost full of jlin anyway 😉

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is competing with Sacre for the best bench cheerleader

  • Alaingrvis

    scare starting soo

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….2 years later, I learn to just focus on good things..

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    sooo

  • JJ Hui

    No more credit and every word spit of the mouth of BS is lies!

  • Carol Tiu

    You see things we couldn’t. You’re an nba prophet.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Why talk to a guy who DNP

  • Brent Yen

    I think so too

  • KHuang

    Translation: I’m pissed but at least I’m filthy rich and great at basketball!

    Oh, and my team stinks without me!

  • occupatio

    It’s gotten to the point of bible verses

    Last time that happened he got traded heh

  • jolno

    LOL jersey gate and now the DNP-BS gate?

  • blubell
  • Singapore BB Fan

    Ok quoting Bible verses means he is going thru tough times

  • sws94

    He’s comical.

  • nodomo

    His second rebellion will be when he joins his next team, gets playing time, and becomes an All-Star and leads the team to a championship

  • Job713

    Byron-speak is like Japanese Algebra to me.

  • Carol Tiu

    Lamentations of Jeremy.

  • Yascar

    MM defending JLin even just a little? Well well…

  • livyrlife

    This is why the America will always have social ills…people are just myopic and those who can help make a change however small aren’t doing the right thing.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t get what’s going on w this team?

  • steven ko

    12 of the 17 mil is guaranteed i believe…

  • Alaingrvis

    is that his first time seem like it they are making a big deal about it

  • Brent Yen

    So….we do we cheer for…HOU or LAL without Lin? LOL

  • ETC

    Rebellion? Trying to start something. He didn’t play. The only open rebelling is the media trying to start something.

  • Alaingrvis

    lol ha

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lakers access now promoting Clarkson like he has just won a game single handedly

  • Rick Johnson

    BScott freaking out because his meal ticket just shoulder injury and done for season, maybe career and while Ex-wife lawyering up to get a piece of his $17mil contract with the Lakers.

  • livyrlife

    I was watching OKC vs ATL while checking if Jeremy was allowed to play…cheering for ATL!!

  • Alaingrvis

    he is they’re rookie expected

  • Tey Ling

    Key word is “might” which means in B’S vocabulary is???@

  • JJ Hui
  • ETC

    Great translation. How about – God is with me and I know it.

  • Carol Tiu

    He’s shameless.

  • Yascar

    He did ok today. Wait till he faces the big boys though. SAS were toying with them, I’ve never seen a team looking so bored on the court.

  • ETC

    He should use more verses then.

  • Tey Ling

    Question: what is the FO going to respond with this stupidity from BS?

  • blubell

    Trade?

  • occupatio

    first world problems lol

  • Alaingrvis

    idk he broke kobe. if they allow that idk

  • blubell

    Problem nonetheless… lol

  • Briiick

    Opponent didn’t pay attention to him, he also cooled his teammates badly.

  • Rick Johnson

    Certainly better than Price.

  • occupatio

    it goes to ten overtimes and everyone passes out due to exhaustion

  • ETC

    Good point. We all get what we deserve.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Not about him, it’s about who the Lakers are. They failed on price now they use clarkson

  • Brent Yen

    And Lin get 40 pts in 5 mins…

  • Alaingrvis

    i have to think there are a bunch of playoff team could really use lin. likely laker wont want to take a player in return

  • KHuang

    Clarkson did OK when San Antonio LET HIM do whatever so that they could study his game.

    Once they adjusted at halftime, they SHUT HIM DOWN.

  • Yascar

    Nailed it.

  • livyrlife

    He’s shamelessly living off Jeremy.

  • Rick Johnson

    I’d say it depends on what Kobe wants to happen to BS. Which in turn depends on what Vanessa wants to happen to BScott. Therefore, if Vanessa blames BScott for Kobe’s injury then BScott will be gone.

  • Briiick

    Don’t expect anything brave and dramatic. The Buss’ children are afraid of Kobe and his tools such as BS.

  • nodomo

    He started hot, 4-6 for 8 pts in 1st half. Then Spurs locked down on him and he went 1-3 in the 2nd half only 3 pts. In my books, he was a non-factor in the 2nd half.

  • BobbyH

    Lin tweeted to fight back at media. 3 tweets in a span of 20 minutes. Lin is indeed pissed.

  • KHuang

    He also got LIT UP by Tony Parker in 3 quarters.

    Lin has shut down Parker repeatedly in the past.

  • livyrlife

    God gives Jeremy BBall IQ, the brains, humility. By God’s grace Jeremy will prevail.

  • nodomo

    I’m not sure why the Lakers media and BS thinks Clarkson did so well. Yes he started hot 4-6 with 8 pts. But then Spurs locked down and he went 1-3 and only 3 pts in the 2nd half. In my books, he was a non-factor in the 2nd half.

  • KHuang

    Good.

    Let the hated Asian guy FIRE BACK against the hateful racist American media.

    He’s the only Asian guy in a position to do so. GOOD FOR HIM.

  • Brent Yen

    They do not even need a scouting report to shut him down….can do in game…

  • cindystar111

    anyone but lin agenda.

  • KHuang

    Simple.

    Clarkson is the NONASIAN GUY that took Lin’s spot.

    He could’ve gone 0 for everything like Ronnie Price routinely does and the Lakers media would proclaim him better than than Lin.

  • BobbyH

    Is FO behind this? Or it is just BS?

  • CJSHYY

    That’s the way it is… no need to surprised… w Price it’s the same. smh!

  • Tey Ling

    We should encourage more noise on this Jlin dnp so that more knows the racism and stupidity of a brainless coach.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Fo now has bigger problem w kobe

  • KHuang

    BOTH.

    Franchise owner is very media conscious, and she BLAMES LIN for the barrage of race based criticism fired at the Lakers.

    Byron Scott is just a dirty lying troll racist who hates Asians like Lin.

  • MoominFloren

    Isn’t it funny? Not the owner / FO to make a basketball decision, it’s up to a player’s wife. Pathetic

  • sws94

    I think Clarkson did well in practice so Byron started him. His team one the 3 on 3 contest. Maybe he didn’t like how Lin looked in that practice. I don’t think this is the FO, Byron wanted to sit Lin so he sat him.

  • BobbyH

    So BS just took advantage of it in an away game.

  • blubell

    Problem solved 🙂

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Awww here’s a virtual shoulder for you…

  • Carol Tiu

    Both. They’re left and right hand of kobe.

  • Sophie Paris

    Life gonna be better without those irrelevant accounts you’ll see lol

  • KHuang

    What Linfuriates me even more is that Scott said that he’s not closed to playing Jeremy Lin again.

    That’s an UTTER LIE because Scott is DONE WITH LIN.

    Scott’s just trying to make it seem that Lin isn’t trying hard or playing good enough to win his position back.

    Lin’s Laker season is over.

  • blubell
  • sws94

    At least he scored. He didn’t make that many mistakes. He pushed the tempo and seemed confident. It’s a heck of a lot better than looking at Price that doesn’t score and is over-rated on defense.

  • KHuang

    FO supports everything that the “championship coach Scott” does.

  • nodomo

    well, technically Clarkson is part Filipino…

  • blubell
  • nodomo

    Was Scott wanting another look at Price to see if he could get 4 steals in a game like Jeremy did the last game? Or 9 steals in 3 games?

  • Marie Simon

    it’s been tough since day 1.

  • Alaingrvis

    rebelion begins

  • BobbyH

    The states won’t lie. So this DNP gate is not for basketball reason. It is either Tanking or Race or Trade or 2 of them or all.

  • Briiick

    Then she deserves it.

  • KHuang

    To US HERE Clarkson is part Filipino, to the racist American media Clarkson is NOT ASIAN.

  • DaBoss

    Yes but doesn’t look it so passes the “eye test”!

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    MISTAKES???

    A point guard is not passing and is getting lit up and we’re pretending that he’s NOT MAKING MISTAKES???

    C’mon, let’s not OVERINFLATE Clarkson’s very limited game here!!!!

  • CJSHYY
  • KHuang

    If the FO demanded it, Scott would have no choice but to PLAY LIN.

  • John Lee

    BS wants to take a look to see if Price is fit for playing baseball.

  • Love Lin

    We rnt blind. Lin is a typical DNP-CD.. BS is such a hypocrite.

  • TTNN

    now on ESPN LA, they are talking about Lin

  • KHuang

    or WAIVE THE ASIAN GUY.

  • kittyhead

    Or let’s kick the Asian guy out of NBA…

  • KHuang

    I’m sure that they’re CRITICIZING LIN like crazy.

    stupid racist American media.

  • joyce ward

    What are they saying?

  • BobbyH

    Then it is RACE

  • Brent Yen

    I am done following any of them…thanks in advance for your transcription.

  • KHuang

    That’s what I have been saying all along.

  • TTNN

    they kind of said the way the coach talking about Lin, shown that Scott really don’t like Lin. ….

    And saying that during Linsanity, it was really fun. Melo liked him at the beginning, and after he found out that people love Lin more than him, then things changed.

  • KHuang

    NO HE CAN’T BE SUSPENDED.

    Lin said that he waited to be interviewed and that nobody interviewed him.

    Lin is a TRUE PRO. He does his job and watches his money.

  • BobbyH

    So basically they said BS don’t like Lin b/c Lin is smarter than BS.

  • TTNN

    they were hoping Lin is the person that could light up LA, but does not looks like it now.

    If the coach like Lin, he would not say things like “I know what Lin can do”, it sounds like Scott is saying that he knows and don’t really care.

  • kauaiblue

    OverLINflate!

  • Brent Yen

    So they blame Lin too…m…ok

  • KHuang

    So MORE HATE being piled on Lin by the racist American media.

    Now everybody here understands why I constantly throw around the RACISM word!!!

  • blubell
  • kauaiblue

    Exactly… his name is clarkson

  • ETC

    Lin keeps on trying to work from the bottom up again and to rebuild. The problem today is that everyone is so cut throat. They don’t like competitors. They want to destroy the competition rather than work together to get better. Lin can’t win. Needs a team like San Antonio with adults and not a bunch of juveniles.

  • Je Ballew

    We don’t need to worry about Jeremy, his back is covered. The concern should be for those trying to destroy him. He made $ 180 K for watching the Lakers get analiated and can’t be blamed for the massacre. Seems like he did fine to me. “

  • KHuang

    Yup, I was right again.

    Like I said, I HATE BEING RIGHT.

  • TTNN

    they are joking that Lin will need to call his professor in Harvard up and say maybe he will need to go back to the graduate school……

    I think a while ago, they were talking about Lin is different from other NBA players, those players see basketball as their life, as if they are not playing Bball, they really could not do other things. But Lin is not, he is Harvard graduate, if he is not playing NBA, he could do other things……

  • KHuang

    voice of reason!!!

    ANALIATED!!!!

    very Christian of you, my friend!

  • thanks, I think we really need to ask the question if BScott bias can be racially based.
    It has gotten to the point that personal bias can sabotage one’s career.

  • TTNN

    Oh, Just let you know, I HATE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JoeTeam

    Hou bcuz kobe is worse than harden in imo.

  • KHuang

    The clock ticks . . .

  • Alaingrvis

    also stayed healthy after another game claps claps claps

  • nodomo

    I think this might be the real reason. Kobe also doesn’t like the fact that Lin is smarter than him

  • CJSHYY

    I feel the same way. Bc I just saw some of his pictures on bench he looked fine to me but just bored.

  • Brent Yen

    DNP does have this benefit….healthy ALL SEASON!!

  • Rick Johnson

    Sometimes I wish JLIN would give these reporters an interview like this “I don’t like you” LOL:

    http://youtu.be/6_E13tZNKyc

  • KHuang

    It hasn’t “gotten” to that point, it’s ALWAYS BEEN that way.

    Lin is an ABERRATION, the only Asian American male entertainer ever to have captured the national consciousness despite crushing racism.

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly. ll i saw was stat pading for 60 minutes. zero defense cause spurs thought while looking at the laker = lol really?.

  • occupatio

    lol WB. brilliant

  • occupatio

    and can repeat it with such a straight face

  • Briiick

    That is why you need a real coach (instead of a player’s coach) to align every player’s interest with winning.

  • KHuang

    What a DIRTY RACE JOKE by a bunch of foul American racist journalists.

    They want the Asian guy out so bad, they’re now trying to undercut his pro basketball prospects.

  • KHuang

    Sometimes I do too.

  • TTNN

    sure is. Just like Jeremy’s mom said, whenever Lin got a good game, coaches or scout always think the opponent did not have a good game, they will never admit Lin was playing good.

    Same here, whenever Lin got burned in defence, they would never admit the opponent has good offense, but blame on Lin’s defense, as they would think that is because Lin is not strong to stop them. However, when Price was facing them, the default would be Price tried hard, and if he could not defend, it is because the offense is better, but was never question Price’s defense. That’s all build on top of the bias that Lin has weak defense…..

    And then think about it, that is from racially opinion

  • TTNN

    you are the only one called it out, and I was never thought it will actually happen! God, I really really HATE you!

  • cindystar111

    or maybe a reporter from taiwan. reporters from taiwan usually only care about lin.

  • livyrlife

    noticed he couldn’t hold his smile at the end of the clip..;P

  • Jedi

    LOL. BS is messing with the wrong guy. He DNP’s Jeremy and Jeremy is trending.
    I hope the Tsunami sweeps BS away, and he makes an imprint on a concrete wall (without getting real life physically hurt I mean).

  • We definitely need to be outspoken in the social media and twitter with the race card.
    It has gotten to be ridiculous.

    It needs to be about merit. We can simply ask the blunt question of why the player with highest TS% in 2015 did not get played? What’s the reason? Personal Bias or Racism?

  • Rick Johnson

    But there’s no Kobe. If Lakers DNP Lin and somehow beat the Rockets that would be bad. Better if Lakers DNP Lin the Rockets blow them out and crowds boo the Lakers on their home court.

  • Je Ballew

    I don’t like that BS is smart enough to know that Lin is smarter than him

  • Sophie Paris

    Watching the warriors. Klay Thomson is having the game of his life, 37 pts in a quarter. 50pts overall and 4th hasn’t started yet. and 11 3 pointers. ^^’

  • Illbe

    I stopped watching the NBA years ago…never liked the punk kid Bryant when he came on the scene and only watched a few championship games since. Basketball is a team sport. Jeremy is a great team player, but he doesn’t fit the NBA mold. Race and Ivy leaguer, but by far and much worst is that he is an outspoken Christian. Three strikes against him. But he keeps coming, and they can’t seem to shake him off. I was shocked that he was made 3rd string tonight and angry that the media played dumb/silent like he doesn’t exist. If there was no Lin, I wouldn’t be here writing this or spending time watching the NBA especially LA Lakers. If no Lin, I would never have known who Beverly or Price were; are you kidding me.
    No matter what comes of this season, he will come out smelling like a ROSE because he takes the high road.

    “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” John 15:18-19

  • BobbyH

    Was there any great player be treated with DNP -CD by a coach like Lin?

  • KHuang

    NO, NEVER!!!

    My NBA memory goes back FAR, as most people know.

  • nodomo

    Tebow?

  • Alaingrvis

    please tebow sucks

  • blubell

    I don’t know what to call this… benchlight?

  • nodomo

    I’m not a Tebow fan and Tebow didn’t have a legacy, but he did win games and got hosed by the FO/coaching staff.

  • BobbyH

    Lin looked fine to me. A tough kid.

  • blubell

    He deserves to start in the ASG. Harden who? lol

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I enjoy it but at the same time I feel bad about it.

  • Sophie Paris

    Linlights 🙂

  • MoominFloren

    Yep. Relax & kind of “no big deal”….

  • Alaingrvis

    he still sucks but i will say its do a player who won that much not get another shot. but if pats coach say you cant throw then you cant. lin has played for crappy coaches for a while now

  • ViNuyork

    omg.. SATAN in a coat…what an evil look….

  • KHuang

    He just collected something like $200K for DOING NOTHING!

  • Je Ballew

    He deserves a paid vacation. Nothing or no one can destroy his life.

  • JoeTeam

    Well, I will root for a Lin-less LAL when Kobe is no longer with the organization. Harden is just a ball hog … he doesn’t come out in public with all this drama.

  • wandertheglobe

    I think Lin is at peace with whatever BS do to him, collecting his $15M, avoid injury and be healthy for his next team. I hope a trade is coming, though…

  • blubell
  • KHuang

    Or a WAIVE.

    Lakers should just CUT LIN.

  • KHuang

    COLD.

    Passive aggressive, more aggressive than passive.

    Lin just said that he has NO RESPECT for Byron Scott!!!

  • wandertheglobe

    Whatever it is….buyout, waive, trade, just get the h3ll out of there…..

  • jolno

    Hardon got another 17 FTA today to add to his already league leading FTA LOL. Guess Harden would be the most qualified to start in the AFG (all-flopping game).

  • So what should we do? Is it time to pull the RACE CARD in twitterverse?

    Ask the hard question why did Jeremy Lin with 2nd highest TS% in 2015 (56.2%) get DNP-Coach Decision
    while Ronnie Price did with 2nd lowest TS% (37.5%)?

    Is it #RACISM or #TANKING?
    Would that be a good question?

    http://stats.nba.com/team/#!/1610612747/players/advanced/?sort=TS_PCT&dir=1&Month=4

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Respective sarcasm.I love it.

  • MoominFloren

    So that’s from a Taiwanese reporter?
    I like how he mentioned D’Antoni, someone you respect……certainly not BS

  • occupatio

    given that byron was hired as the anti-dantoni, thats a pretty direct attack. haha

  • Brent Yen

    It is being pulled all over the place already…

  • joyce ward
  • occupatio

    stool lance. smh

  • Je Ballew

    I have heard the statement, “his reputation precedes him. :). Just check YouTube.

  • Good then. We should keep applying the pressure everyday!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Deserves an endless retweet.

  • cindystar111

    BS is embarrassing and not some people you respect.

  • KHuang

    Mainstream Americans TRASH ANYBODY who mention the race card, especially Asians.

    Anybody who defends Lin is trashed as a “crazy Lin fan racist” by mainstream America.

    The race card doesn’t scare me one iota.

    I’ve learned that when I throw the race card around in racial issues, ENEMIES BACK OFF because they smirk at me calling them out accurately!!!

  • blubell
  • cheapjing

    2 possible outcomes, Lin will be traded or Byron will get fired.

  • Tey Ling

    Is Sam Huang the reporter who interviewed Jlin?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Don’t go there, we’ll never win

  • KHuang

    3 possible outcomes.

    Lin will be WAIVED.

  • Bearness

    I think Lin will leave as a free agent and BS will get fired sometime after that, by the end of next season.

  • Bearness

    Exactly.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    It’s not about winning.

    It’s about INFLICTING AS MUCH DAMAGE TO DUMB RACISTS AS POSSIBLE.

  • Tey Ling

    Play the Race Card for this is the Truth.

  • Alaingrvis

    is this real

  • KHuang

    Where’s Lin’s mobile phone???

    He should be texting, tweeting, posting on this forum!

  • leeda harun

    so the FO going to keep quiet. or make an explanation.

  • grover chang

    I would watch tebow again in a heartbeat, every game was exciting, especially the ends

  • Ken Chatsworth

    The sooner the better.

  • KHuang

    FO doesn’t care at all about Lin.

    Lin’s just a temporary player, and an unwanted one too.

  • joyce ward

    lin is not going to get waived. They Lakers will try for a trade or something, but mu gut is telling me something different

  • cheapjing

    that will make the lakers look worse.

  • occupatio

    indeed they will. theyve been quiet so far. what happened tonight is not much different than before, only in degree. still the same BS

  • KHuang

    Doesn’t matter.

    Lin’s actions and words POINT TO THIS.

  • Tey Ling

    Why prolong the sufferings, either trade Lin or fire B’S, asap.

  • nodomo

    Remember when BS insinuated that Lin was soft, and Lin pushed back saying everyone has their own opinion but he is NOT soft, that reply probably pissed BS off and put Lin in the doghouse.

  • Rick Johnson
  • livyrlife

    I hope the Asian sponsors that fork out their money learn their lesson and put an exit clause on Jeremy be demoted to back up player.

    $200m to make the Lakers No1(toppled NYK Knicks) on Forbes list isn’t small money, Maxxis and East West Bank ($??) should know better by now. smh

  • KHuang

    Why wouldn’t Lin be waived?

    The Lakers are DONE WITH HIM and they’re trying to get more playing time for Price and Clarkson and the other guards.

    Lin is a 6’3 Asian thorn in the Lakers side.

  • grover chang

    Great verse.

  • Bearness

    I won’t miss listening to Stu’s voice. That’s for sure.

  • joyce ward

    I love how the Laker media has turned it’s focus on Klay Thompson all of a sudden.LOL

  • KHuang

    Good then.

    Lin’s way tougher and better than Byron Scott ever was as a person or player.

  • Tey Ling

    We need more tweets like John Fish, the FO cannot be so stupid as BS.

  • KHuang

    They’re just thrilled that the Asian guy is no longer relevant to the Lakers.

  • ETC

    Well that might be true but if BS was man enough he should be able to take the little poke that Jeremy had. I don’t understand how a coach can criticize a particular player so much and get away with it and when a player says stop, he keeps going? What a bully.

  • Bearness

    I’m not disagreeing with it. But, that’s our point of view. I just don’t think it is what Lakers are thinking.

  • pero_square

    Ugh…why do you have to be right, KHuang?

    This is the rock bottom, no, the bottom has fallen out. The Mariana Trench. The ironic thing is the victim is getting the blame and the perps are getting away with murder. The homicide of a NBA career. Well, it’s not going to work. You can’t bury Lin. He will be free in a couple of months and he will be back.

  • Illbe

    Tebow was definitely mistreated. Now he came into the league with college championship(s) and the Heisman! No slouch! He wasn’t pretty to watch, but when given the chance he took a mediocre team into the second round of the playoffs, but he was too Christian for this world, and was ridden out of the NFL. Note the one thing these two have in common…boldness about their faith in Jesus Christ!

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, the Asian community needs to stop funding these reams who disrespect them. They need to put their foot down. AS a na African American, they way lin has been treated ,our community would have put a stop to this long ago. Also the Asian kobe fans in China, need to get a clue and realize that they are just using them.

  • cali7

    You won’t go anywhere if you don’t start somewhere.

  • jolno

    Embarrassing moments in life -> When you realized BS is your “coach” and you can do nothing about it LOL.

  • CJSHYY

    I just saw that from Taiwan’s fan but I asked her where did she get this statement? Have not heard from her yet?

  • Yascar

    I think he’s just a fan. Might just be paraphrasing actually.

  • leeda harun

    so whats the FO thinking…first its about kobe..than..BS..now Lin…I think the FO buying time..for what….?

  • joyce ward

    No. I think they are embarrass and don’t know what to say. They will just focus on other things. They know that it is not right, but they are powerless to o anything.

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! Finally more people saw how bad BS to Lin now… smh!

  • KHuang

    The reason I was right is because I as a proud and defiant race hated Asian American male have FACED THIS DYNAMIC REPEATEDLY throughout my life.

    I’m much older than Lin and have watched the NBA longer than he’s been alive, so you can imagine how much racial conflict of this sort I have endured.

    When this all started the instant Scott was hired, I was ON IT because I saw the racial warning signs from the start. They were not only clear, they were predictable.

    I have battled racism all my life. I know EXACTLY how racists think and behave. I always impress them when I call them out correctly – they ALWAYS back off in real life with a smirk on their faces when I aggressively go after them.

  • JoeTeam

    McAdoo very clean pick, the roll and Livinston passed for a Mc Dunk! Haven’t seen anyone do such a clean PnR on LAL. McAdoo only on a 10 day contract. Just a little lost on D, don’t blame him. I get to see them Tues!

  • blubell

    Yes I asked the same. No reply.

    Freedom of press is surely dead.

    Bunch of cowards now

  • joyce ward

    Look the Lakers are still all about the money. You can say what you want., but I will just take the wait and see what happens. I am a half full person, and that is what I chose to be. You do you, and I will do me.enuf said. That is the end of this conversation

  • occupatio

    that would be true for a media market like new york in which few have access to the team so its a free for all competition.
    but LA is still insular and access is still prized.

  • JoeTeam

    fired?

  • Rick Johnson

    I think the $15 Mil contract is too much for any team to want to trade for him. Even the $8 Mil hit to the salary cap is too much. They wouldn’t want to give up assets or picks. JLin should just enjoy the beach with Nash and collect his $15 Mil.

  • Bearness

    I don’t know why Lin is being mistreated, whether it’s due to race, because BS just doesn’t like him, or whatever. But, it is obvious that he is being mistreated without a valid reason, meaning this is something personal between Lin and BS. I really do hope Asian community would rally together to support one of the few sports icons they have.

  • Alaingrvis

    seeing joseph play a lot with mills there makes me think lin should go to the spurs. pops plays talented player. regardless of the position

  • KHuang

    Like in Houston, the Lakers front office doesn’t want ANY NEGATIVE PUBLICITY about this benching.

    The Lakers are trying to spin the DNP CD:Asian as LIN’S FAULT.

  • JoeTeam

    That’s Byron … I think JW is saying Byron is done. I thing this DNP-CD is just frothy stuff when things are about to break. Technically, you are right, but this DNP-CD is a good thing, trust me.

  • Briiick

    I guess they all know that Lin is a goner by the summer. Kobe succeeded again in driving out another talent after he had done to Shaq, DH12…

  • KHuang

    McAdoo is one of those terrific college players that NBA scouts insisted could not play.

    NBA scouts are IDIOTS.

  • I’ve been refraining myself not to go there. This could be the last straw
    But when coaches made personal bias over an inferior player, tough questions need to be asked so they take responsibility over their decisions.

    Byron’s reasoning of wanting to look at Ronnie Price didn’t make sense. He’s 2nd lowest in TS% and didn’t deserve to play on merit.

  • KHuang

    I know the American media better than they know themselves.

    They’re THRILLED that Lin’s out of the picture.

    To the Lakers, Klay Thompson is the guy they want to replace Bryant. That’s why the Lakers are fawning over him.

  • JoeTeam

    Hey psalm, you of all ppl know this isn’t the last straw. We aren’t at the crucifixion yet, and even if we were, there is Easter Sunday! Stay happy, bro.

  • joyce ward

    They need to do something. Kevin Ding is in the middle of the road with his Clarkson has a Filipino mother. Please that was so low. I tweeted him and said that WTH are you talking about. Is that suppose to be some kind of consultation prize.

  • MomentousPetey

    well,..dayum

  • JoeTeam

    hey, haven’t seen you in a while. Welcome back.

    I got it this is from Baidu.. Not today.

    “此前,林书豪在接受采访时候表示他并不担心首发的问题。他说:“这种想法(换首发)在任何地方都会出现,但是我会继续按照每场比赛的计划来执行,做自己该做的事情,应该如何准备以及如何打好比赛。”赛后林书豪被问到没有上场,林书豪说道:“在每个人的一生中都有很多让自己尴尬的瞬间,也有很多让自己值得尊敬的人{比如德.安东尼}!我尊重教练的安排!”

    LZ 这不是今天的新闻~
    是以前说的, 有关上场时间减少!

  • Brent Yen

    It was because they play LAL tho

  • livyrlife

    It isn’t about winning. At times, regardless of the outcome, speaking the truth is necessary.

  • spiderman

    Asia is being duped by Kobe

  • Illbe

    The Best is yet to come…as Jeremy quoted on his Twitter…God’s mercies are new every morning…tomorrow is a new day…things will be brighter! And I’m out!

  • Bearness

    I don’t expect any journalists to support Lin. It’s not that they are horrible people, but reality is they have to play politics and maintain good relationships with the team. Thus, they will always just be mouthpieces of the team. Or they will lose their job and/or access pretty quickly.

  • KHuang

    The Spurs could desperately use Jeremy Lin, especially on the bench.

    The Spurs are the only NBA team that I would be comfortable with Lin coming off the bench for. That’s because Pop hopefully would play Lin properly and give Lin the same chances that other nonAsian players would get.

    Then again, I have ZERO FAITH in Popovich because I followed him long before he had Tim Duncan. I know that Popovich is actually a closet superstar worshiper who just happens to have handed his life over to the most unselfish superstar in NBA history in Duncan. He was trained by his mentor Larry Brown to hate players like Lin that are hated by the media.

    Still, I’d rather Lin be in Popovich’s doghouse as a little used reserve player than as a DNP-CD in Houston or LA.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    That card looks familiar.

    Hey @psalm234:disqus.. where are the pics and the videos????? *tapping my foot impatiently*

  • JoeTeam

    I really wanted to see him more last game, because he is only on a 10 day contract. He monstered 13 mins first game, but DNP 2nd game because barbosa freelanced and Dlee could not handle the pressure alone, so Kerr had to bring Curry, KT, Bogut back in for last 3 mins. Bummer. Had a good 5 mins tonight.

  • joyce ward

    You know what dude, you might know some things, but you don’t know everything. Don’t go overboard with this race thing. I am African American and was born and raised in the south. know how to separate the bias racial thing from people justt being stupid and an in educated in situations in which they have not been faced with. I know the subtle’s of racism, so sometimes things are not always about race, but about people’s pride and stupidity.

  • pero_square

    Yes, only up from here.

  • Briiick

    With the owners being so soft, I guess Kobe will continue to have big influence in LAL after he retires, and no player dares to take the spotlight dares to join LAL.

  • Linja

    This is not a good thing here by posting something that was not said today.
    Misinforming is a crime.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think both the Spurs starters and bench would benefit greatly with Jeremy.

  • blubell
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks for the clarifications.

  • KHuang

    Tim Duncan would SHIELD LIN from Popovich’s superstar garbage.

    The instant Duncan retires, Lin would have to change teams though.

  • grover chang

    I didn’t believe it was possible but Lin was DNP-CD. Saying your team is carried by an Asian guy is emasculating because Asian men are feminine. That’s why Lin works as a back up but not the star. Well the star is injured, how could Lin stay the back up now. Asians could be support am, but not leaders.

  • JoeTeam

    word, Joyce. I get ya.

  • blubell

    Lets tap together in harmony.

  • Bearness

    Well said.

  • wandertheglobe

    True dat, Joyce!

  • KHuang

    David Lee can usually handle the pressure, but he can’t do that on this Steve Kerr team that plays strictly to Curry and Thompson’s 3 point shooting and FREEZES EVERYONE ELSE OUT.

  • Bearness

    Seriously! He has been enjoying them by himself for days! =P

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    I think she didn’t know this was not from today… I believe she saw the same tweet like me & she just translate the tweet into English.

  • blubell

    Should be considered a crime! lol.

  • Linja

    Lam. 3:22-23, I can still sing that song.

  • KHuang

    No, things can and will get A LOT WORSE for Lin.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    My guess is BS dares FO to fire him.

  • JoeTeam

    It’s not even bad here, just a sit down night and my fantasy team lost because Lin did not play.

    Look:
    1. LAL no good not on Lin
    2. Lin getting paid
    3. Why should Lin make BSc look good given his negative stance on Lin?

    Might as well have a relaxed night and let BSc flail around with zero points form RP and jumping bean (out of control play) Clarkson bragging about planning to brag by beating SAS all by his own start.

    Central casting and get the usual scripts couldn’t beat this … Lin is great.

    Tonight is a win by CONTRAST!!! I LOVE being wrong to KHuang just for now. It’s a high wave for Lin, believe me.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    You are NOT ASIAN AMERICAN and thus have not faced the specific racism that we Asian Americans face.

    Your African American experience does not apply to an Asian American like me AT ALL.

    This is why I can accurately predict the racism that precedes Jeremy Lin and you cannot.

  • KHuang

    I disagree with all of you.

  • JoeTeam

    I don’t agree. The surf is about to break. Things are about to be reshuffled, or not. 3 mos is nothing, and I’d rather have Lin not risking head, knee, elbow injury unless it’s for a run at the prize. This is just a practice team from now on.

  • KHuang

    NO.

    She DOESN’T KNOW what it’s like to be a hated Asian male!!!

  • KHuang

    POORLY SAID.

  • Love Lin

    Hes busy w/editing n doing photoshop himself in the pics.. j/k.. 🙂

    Hey KH…tone down…we all got your pts….ppl are on the edge tonight

    BS said, ““I just thought I’d give Ronnie more of a look tonight. I know what Jeremy can do.” ROFL!!!!!! Really?!!??! This would be comedy if it weren’t so sad.

  • JoeTeam

    They are on censorship … if they break ranks, and kobe is around next year, heh heh, cold shoulder …

  • MomentousPetey

    I understand Joyce, but I agree with KHuang.

  • Alaingrvis
  • KHuang

    I WILL NOT tone down.

    NOBODY tells me that they know my racist experiences and hard experience better than I do.

    Not even Asians are spared my wrath when they try to tell me that they know better about my life than I do.

    I’m not flaming anybody or disrespecting anybody. But I’ll stand up for who I am and my HARD EXPERIENCE.

  • Tey Ling

    Such as?

  • rookie75094

    In honored for the terminator movie I just watch… Jlin to his fans and haters alike… I’ll be back!!! ( in Arnolds voice)

  • blubell
  • wandertheglobe

    Yeah, Joe. Why play in a game when your team is going to lose anyway. Enjoy the night off. If anything BS should be embarrassed of making a mockery of himself.

  • joyce ward

    No you know what, you are so negative. You glorify in the fact when your negativism pans out. So please don’t come on her and gloat, because I for one am sick and tired of your Winnie the pooh, oh it’s a blustery attitude. so Please refrain from commenting on any of my posts. in that way we anc remain civil toward each otherr

  • Brent Yen

    true or not…it is irrelevant from my concern. I am not going to watch this conversation going ugly here

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m thisclose to stomping my feet loudly lol

  • KHuang

    It is NOT getting ugly.

    Joyce is not attacking me and I am not attacking her.

  • Brent Yen

    U made your pts. Let’s not agitate this topic for now.

  • MomentousPetey

    =).

  • Bearness

    Who is talking about your experiences? I was pretty sure we were talking about Lin’s.

  • KHuang

    There is nothing inflammatory or insulting about her points.

    I respect her stance, though I do not agree.

  • Brent Yen

    Consider this a heads up…I am not accusing you or her

  • Brent Yen

    This is the tone down I wished…thanks

  • KHuang

    I’M talking about my experiences because I’ve been through virtually all the same racial crap that Lin’s been through but WORSE.

  • JoeTeam

    We agree … it’s just bummer to read all this, but really, when Bledsoe end-zoned Lin and landed with Lin on his side/hip, I really didn’t like seeing that for this terribly coached and led (kobe) team.

    This is a great night, as the contrast if fine. Like a great black and white photo (good images are hard to see these days with all the noise). The contrast is beautiful on this picture. I’m going to savor it … way better than Lin 20.5 mins, 12 pts, etc etc with loss to SAS.

  • KHuang

    ok

  • IsabeliJane*17

    WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS? Damage control for his earlier tweet about Jeremy sneaking out? Du’h!

  • Linja

    The lethal part of being Lin is that not only he is Asian, who does not resemble them, he is extremely intelligent. Combining these two would create a phenomenon like Lin’s ill-treatment. We speak from life experiences . When people are in a position with power, they almost always abuse it. This is also true from our experiences. There lies the grace that is bestowed upon us from the God almighty who has a plan for Lin, and with his faithfulness, Lin will press forward and reach his promised goal. Meanwhile, maintain a cheerful heart – ’cause a cheerful heart is a good medicine – and use Tai Chi to fend off BS, so to speak. Take a deep breath. ALL GOOD.

  • joyce ward

    Brent don’t you even go there with me…smh

  • Sophie Paris

    So lame who’s following that dude?

  • MomentousPetey

    Teach me your ways KHuang. =)

  • Alaingrvis

    seems to be telling the truth

  • leeda harun

    this reporter should be bamboozied by lakers fan for his incompetent…stupid sport writer

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I don’t.I don’t mind attacking his incompetency though.

  • JoeTeam

    That is why I asked KH to stop posting the DNP-CD refrain. Really, tonight is BSc doing his thing. DNP-CD will not stick. Jeremy is too valuable. He might pull and Asik, and I really like that the gloves are starting to come off. Let’s go, let’s have some real conflict surface I am ready to see it so something positive changes.

  • Bearness

    I do think ““Why didn’t you play?” (Didn’t know) “Will he play next game?” (Doesn’t know)” part is true though. I really, really doubt BS spoke to Lin about not playing tonight before or after the game. When he first started benching Lin and Carlos, he didn’t say peep to them either.

  • wandertheglobe

    I couldn’t have said it any better.

  • joyce ward

    Dude, asian americans were not the ones getting the dogs sicked on them or water hoses let loose on them when they just wanted simple liberties to just go and sit down in a restaurant to eat in America

  • KHuang

    This Bill Oram is a DIRTY RACIST LIAR.

    First he LIES about Lin “sneaking out” of an interview, and then now he’s CAUGHT BALDFACED in his lie by the sympathetic Asian media!

    This is the kind of race based media hate that the Chinese government was constantly threatening the NBA over while their players Yao, Sun, Yi, Wang, and Mengke were playing in the NBA.

  • blubell

    Yup, stop following him when he made that “Lin fans are crazy…” comment.

  • cali7

    This is true about the community needing to step up.

  • Alaingrvis

    exactly its the truth. the upset stuff is likely true but her opinion

  • webattorney

    BS making a bigger fool out of himself than I thought. I now have NO respect for FO either.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think I have an issue with how he has to drag @XiaXuanyi into his Twitter feed.

  • Yascar

    Obviously. This guy tries every time to undermine Lin fans and Lin himself. Caught out today. So he had to clean it up.

  • Brent Yen

    What makes you say that…I mean the FO part?

  • Alaingrvis

    well she hasn’t shared any of the interview with anyone

  • joyce ward

    I personally think that Scott will get a lot of heat from this. Lin was the only player who did not play. How will he justify that with the F/O and the sponsors.

  • KHuang

    I’ll defy you by posting this one last time, not out of spite but out of politeness because I don’t negatively judge you but actually admire you.

    You just ordered me out of here, so I’ll respect your opinion and LEAVE.

    This is YOUR FORUM, and I respect it the same way that Lin respects Byron Scott’s coaching.

    I wish you the best – and I’m not lying either.

    Follow up with me on the other forum if you think I’m messing around with that.

    I’m OUT!!!!!!

  • Brent Yen

    Scott is making himself looking very bad now…..Lin has nothing to lose at this point. All he has to do is wait and see. I think we should do the same….I do not think he will be DNP-CD the whole season either.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I smell damage control for his “Jeremy sneaked out from locker room” tweet, so he just had to find that interviewer whom J spoke to and tweet about J’s interview answers.

  • blubell
  • Bearness

    Probably. She was probably trying add some sensationalism and credibility, “if” it is really true she spoke to this guy.

  • Marie Simon

    this is the same reporter that Nathan asked why Lin was even mentioned when he had a double-double and all he said he was given only 28 mins , what a big liar !! Definitely, a Jlin hater , smh.

  • JoeTeam

    That doesn’t matter, it’s clear people agree and disagree with you. You are overdoing it. You can’t be serious to accuse Joyce, and African American growing up in the south, of not knowing what it’s like to face racism. You’ve gone overboard. Leave Lin’s DNP-CD as the first of however many he may get. He had plenty before on GSW, I’m sure, and he sat in that DLeague bus too. I’ve had to eat bitter mellon too … I just don’t make it a big deal and I NEVER tell other’s who clearly live through racism daily that they don’t get me.

    Kindly reduce your drive, bro … you got a layup.

  • webattorney

    I am saying I have no respect for FO either for letting BS do this to their own player. Made the original poster clearer.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Brent Yen

    Oh my bad..lol

  • Alaingrvis

    she hs to write what he said she didn’t not anywhere

  • jolno

    Remember the press conference Mitch held after he finally acquired Lin? It’s almost comical (in a sad way) how things have changed since then.

  • Alaingrvis

    seem opposite of damage control. look like lin is pissed. will run away as soon as free agency starts

  • cali7

    He is being vocal tonight.

  • JoeTeam

    hey, we’re friends now lol …

  • Bearness

    Unfortunately, I am beginning to believe F/O is in on this. There is no other explanation that he can get away with this kind of stuff for so long without any repercussions.

  • Brent Yen

    He has to

  • grover chang

    Jeremy must be down, he doesn’t remember the one reporter who spoke to him when they look this pretty.

  • leeda harun

    BS really certain that the FO is behind him.

  • TTNN

    agree. Lakers could not afford to tank like 76ers. they had way bigger pressure.

  • cali7

    I’m glad he is being vocal that is. He doesn’t have to and hasn’t always

  • joyce ward

    Yep, I think he made a big boo boo with this one. Lin was the only player that didn’t play and Ronnie Price had 0 points. The F/o is going to have to address this. I wouldn’t even doubt that they are jut letting Scott sink himself, now that Kobe is gone. Jeannie busses response is that I don’t get involved in what the coaches do. That is her way of keeping her hands clean, so when it gets too hot and she needs to fire somebody, she will be free of all blame.

  • Alaingrvis

    so many disrespect has zero choice

  • kauaiblue

    it seemed so promising then. But now its a different story. That’s

  • Tey Ling

    Well the sole reporter Ms Xis who interviewed Jlin is the smart one, not wasting time on bullshits.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I meant damage control by Bill Oram for his previous ugly tweet.

  • blubell

    Not just Mitch but Jeanie Buss was thrilled with the acquisition…

  • Bearness

    Me too.

  • Briiick

    I like to watch Lin play. If he doesn’t play, I would not waste my time watching a tanking team.

  • JoeTeam

    I don’t agree. This team plays great ball around the 5. Speights get tons of play even with Curry on the court. Curry kicks out a LOT to Draymond Green. blah blah … And, Livingston is really a great PG not out for his own but is to me about the best standard of 2nd team PG I’ve seen (I count Lin as first team).

  • Brent Yen

    And I do not think the stupidity BS has demonstrated so far is going to be left unnoticed….

  • ETC

  • Tey Ling

    Ya and the FO is making themselves looking worst than BS.

  • Brent Yen

    More like he is dragging the FO along with him….lol

  • Bearness

    I don’t think DNP-CD will be for rest of season either, but BS already crossed the line.

  • livyrlife

    I like her already.

  • Brent Yen

    Last yr’s LAL, at least, was more exciting to watch I believe…

  • TTNN

    Jeremy Lin, postgame, as described by the one reporter to speak with him, @XiaXuanyi pic.twitter.com/Gpn7sHHvvB— Bill Oram (@billoram) January 24, 2015

  • JoeTeam

    Bearness, I include owners in FO. I don’t thing BSc said, “Hey Mitch, you have a problem with me DNP-CDing Lin?” I think it was more … “Mitch, now that Kobe is out, I’m going to have to see how much I can get out of Clarkson.” “Yeah, let’s have a look for SAS.” It don’t work, by the numbers (I missed the game, luckily.)

  • blubell
  • jolno

    It’s almost as if BS is daring the Lakers to fire him. We will see how the FO responds soon enough.

  • TTNN

    come on, the way he totally murdered Kobe, everyone saw it, just those guys in LA either worked with him in ESPN or played with him in Lakers don’t really want to call him out, but….. LA is not the whole world….

  • cali7

    There may be disconnect Btwn FO and BS considering lakers tweeted lin’s jersey before the game and lin was dnp. Lakers defrauded everyone with that act

  • Brent Yen

    exactly…..while I believe race is an issue here. I think something else is going on in the management level

  • JoeTeam

    Oh gawd, don’t pull this drama KHuang. You were right about the ONE DNP-CD and you got the credit. But you posterized everyone and took it to Asians against the world and really, this is just about a dumb losing coach so let’s don’t flame board relationships over this. Just take the layup and stop POSTERIZING those who don’t think 100% with your view. I can handle being wrong, getting a layup or 2 put on me. Go ahead and let’s keep up the tempo and competition!

  • webattorney

    I am just going to say this just one time and stop. I have no respect for Asian-Americans and Asians who support Lakers or Kobe financially.

  • joyce ward

    Here you go, being all dramatic. I just asked you not to comment on what I post. I won’t comment on what you post. This has nothing to do with anyonelse posting on here. Some on here find your posting informative and thought provoking. I am not one of these posters. That is why I don’t comment on your posts often. my theory is always that we can agree to dis agree without drama.

  • Brent Yen

    So far I have not seen anyone who actually calling him out yet. A mocking here and there maybe…

  • Rene#17

    Exactly…. He doesn’t look Asian.

  • Brent Yen

    You just saved a big portion of respect that your were giving…:P

  • sorry 🙁 I tried 4 times to edit the video but got watermark all over it
    so I’m going to restart with Lightworks (I think) ..
    got meetings tomorrow too *sigh* so hopefully this weekend =)

  • CJSHYY

    I think so & BS did it on purpose.

  • Bearness

    I guess we will never know how it really went down. But, no matter the details, this is an insult to Lin. Although I like that Lin overcomes the obstacles and always comes out stronger, I do wish at some point he will have a team and coach who truly support him so he can enjoy some good times in NBA.

  • JoeTeam

    have always disdained Kobe and LAL because of that. First jersey for my son is a Curry 30 though I wanted a JLin17 NYK badly. I’ll get one one day.

  • Tey Ling

    Well said.

  • webattorney

    I said several times I refuse to give money to Lakers or NBA. Do not renew your League Pass.

  • JoeTeam

    I can’t wait, I tend to agree. BSc has no value that he brings to the table – you see, even if he’s tanking, he could do it AND keep ratings from plummeting. He’s not doing that. So anyway … can’t wait for change in the wind.

  • John Lee

    I think Byron was a Jim hire, and he’s now playing with fire.
    Wait, that rhymes!

  • cindystar111

    she didn’t say lin’s “helpless” bill obam is still a liar. i would send him numerous angry tweets if i remember my twitter account password. hope many people tweet him all sorts of f words let him know the power of justice. (just kidding)

  • Briiick

    FO has been too soft and spoiled Kobe. He has gotten away with ejecting Shaq, Dh12, …, and now Lin.

  • John Lee

    I was burned buying League Pass during Lin’s first season with Rox, and have been cautious with my money since.

  • TTNN

    uh, really don’t need to go that far…..

  • Mr Chuckles

    League Pass is total crap anyway. From a technical standpoint, awful. From a customer standpoint, putrid. I mean they blackout NBATV games. Why? It is the same organization! Ridiculous.

  • webattorney

    Clearly, BS/Kobe hates Lin (never liked him), but for what reason, I am not going to go there, although I have my guess.

  • JoeTeam

    yes, it’s just the froth you get when things get stirred up. In chemistry, you can use that to purify …

  • Briiick

    Add Rox to your list.

  • Keith

    I second to that..

  • JoeTeam

    and when he waits, he’s paid $180k per game waiting so he’s seeing smiles …

  • Keith

    Yup.. Rockets started.

  • Briiick

    FO is soft and BS/KB are hard, smh.

  • webattorney

    OK. 🙂 O wasn’t even thinking of them because I don’t live there.

  • JoeTeam

    I think it’s ridiculous that his assistant coach had to alert him to Kobe tearing a rotator cuff. I mean, a left handed air ball? Kobe is bad, but not that bad … oh, and it took him 4 minutes to react to that alert.

    The only thing I can say is there are CEOs being paid more to be similarly incompetent, so one cannot expect karma or meritocracy in the world. Just live and spread goodness …

  • Brent Yen

    I believe that is not what he wants. ….it is not what I want or wish. A LA fan just told me to shut up and stop defending Lin because Lin is a millionaire and he is not paying my rent..this is a very twisted value…

  • Briiick

    BS must be a Kobe hire, the owners surrendered as always.

  • Tey Ling

    Noted

  • Brent Yen

    LOL….let’s see how bad Scott can get…

  • John Lee

    The one who had power but conceded was Jim Buss, a total wuss.

  • Briiick

    Poet

  • webattorney

    I know when I am being shi**ted upon.

  • blubell

    You’re on a roll! must be that UCI education 🙂

  • LAJane

    very much with you on this, Joyce. Keep tellin’ it. Racism is there, but it’s not the whole story. KHuang has said a lot of compelling stuff about 80’s coaches stuck with obsolete vision, yet discounts this when the racism argument gets going. Racism, persistent jealousy from “stars” demanding compliance from owners, inept dinosaur coaches….there are many STRONG currents at play in this story. “Pride and stupidity” are color blind.

  • linspiredinla

    He was not ok with benching. See @billoram tweets. JLin said he didn’t know why he didn’t play or when will he play again.

  • webattorney

    Jeremy, if you give a finger to BS, you will become my hero. And I will forever support you. OK, at least give him a disgusted stare.

  • JoeTeam

    It’s not what I want for him either.

    But we have to see the reality and clicking in $180k each ‘painful’ game goes a long way to his life vision of service.

    Here are some examples of good values in learning how to relate with money well:

    $180k =
    – 2 people-years of salary for fund raising to keep his foundation humming. That multiplies like teaching people how to fish
    – 1.5 engineers to upgrade his site to build a real community around his message
    – 2 years college by the time his kids get there (maybe 1 year)
    – a church building upgrade that so many churches need.
    – teams of ppl to to Africa to build school buildings for the kids. 1 game sitting the pine can pay for 10 teams going, I bet, for ten schoolhouses.

    And so on. It’s not the money, but what you will do with it and every game Lin sits is one more game he can play later, and I would trust him with every dime he earns.

  • webattorney

    Curious to find out which is it.

  • bolero

    As far as I’m concerned Lin fulfilled his NBA obligation to talk the reporter..He’s not going to wait for everyone..Harden skipped all the time and he doesn’t get in trouble.

  • blubell
  • Briiick

    I have never been a fan of Kobe, always thought that the Lakers treated him as their own and used their media influence to give him more credit than he deserves. Shaq was a much more impressive player to me. And I remember KB was barely able to take LAL to the playoff after running Shaq out of LA.

  • Marie Simon

    I am pretty sure BScott or his circle of friends are browsing this site or the other and got some ideas to DNP JLin.

  • webattorney

    Is it just due to BS just being stupid, or due to something else? We really don’t know which it is.

  • bolero

    yah. lol

  • John Lee

    Zot Zot Zot, fire Byron Scott!

  • Brent Yen

    I think it is time to stop thinking this is about bball…lol

  • JoeTeam

    Lol, good repartee!

  • webattorney

    She might have been serious.

  • John Lee

    You’re absolutely right, it’s all about BS love for delicious bagels.

  • Brent Yen

    Well….that is irrlevant to what happened to him tho….He can play 30 minutes and still do good with that 180k…I am well aware of the reality. I am just saying it is irrelevant how much he made sit or not.

  • JoeTeam

    like LAJane said, it’s probably all. For sure 2 things are easy to see: incompetence and pride.

  • Bearness

    Haha, Lin giving BS a death stare would make a great meme.

  • blubell

    Zot Zot Zot never sounded so good until now. Bravo, sir. Bravo.

  • Brent Yen

    very true…either way, they are dragging Lin with them…

  • Acbc

    Never was, it’s all about BS and KOBE.

    The sad truth is thye think we are the crazy ones. KOBE and BS is taking the Lakers on a one way trip to the bottom but no one dares to speak up. Lakers will have their legacy ruined just like the Knicks in less than 5 years of KOBE selfish send off.

  • JoeTeam

    Yes, well he’s 26. When he’s a little more mature, he will hammer back. Right now, he’s on track to have more power and wisdom. He will learn to exercise power each year that passes. Right now, the younger fans want him to rebel, scream out attacks on ‘the man.’ I get that. When I was younger, I was telling my Asian American friends to speak out too. When you get older, it’s not so raw. You just exercise power naturally, and yet, each day, you see yourself in the mirror and it’s not the man limiting you anymore … it’s what you were raised with. So there you go … Lin has that to look forward to discovering … what in how he was raised is going to hold him back in his mid 30s? You know how it goes …

  • Brent Yen

    totally. The good thing is they did it so bad that Lin actually looked like a victim…not some bad players who deserved to be DNP-CD…….

  • Mr Chuckles

    I think this was BS telling Jeremy, “you probably think you will get to run this team now that Kobe is lost for the season. well not so fast.”

  • Brewkowski

    It’s easier to call out Lin’s performance than anybody else. I wonder why?

  • Alaingrvis

    lin not stupid he knew

  • grover chang

    LOL. If that was BS reason then he really is stupid. He sure showed Lin and then team by being embarrassed by the spurs. I don’t think the spurs were even trying on a back to back.

  • blubell

    BScot relaying Kobe’s message is more like it.

  • Bearness

    BS can do that without DNP-CD. For example, by playing Lin few minutes. The fact that it was DNP-CD and only for Lin meant this was personal.

  • 7iger

    Why don’t people get it? It is not about how good Price play. It is all about BS want to see every moment of Price.

  • Brent Yen

    M…is that a trick question?

  • John Lee

    Magic and Worthy both became quiet after BS antics grew ever more obvious, they must be fed up and disgusted by the way BS tainted the storied franchise.

  • blubell

    Priceless moments…

  • Mr Chuckles

    True, Scott is Kobe’s charmin. Bryant wipes his rear-end with Scott.

  • John Lee

    Like…literally! LOL

  • 7iger

    That money can’t buy.

  • grover chang

    Idk. People only remember the rude act. Horry throwing a towel at his coach Danny Ainge has still been a blemish for Horry. I don’t know why Horry threw that towel but no one thinks Ainge as the coach deserved such disrespect.

  • Mr Chuckles

    Squeeze-ably soft.

  • joyce ward

    I totally agree, because you have fans asking , where is Lin and I am sure TNT and the NBA took notice of the fact that Lin was the only player who didn’t play tonight especially when they are displaying his jersey fo r Hollywood nights. I am intrigued to see what happens in the next game.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! That’s what BS showed tonight to Lin… smh!

  • joyce ward

    Yep

  • Brent Yen

    exactly

  • JoeTeam

    Well. I actually do get you. You have no idea now much I’ve had to deal with along the same lines, but that doesn’t matter here. I’m just thinking you are posterizing ppl when it’s just a good old fashion KHuang’s right night. No need to get all hot about the race thing. We ALL live it. Enjoy the moment, tomorrow there will be more wins for Lin, for us, and more loses all around. Live well and don’t get too riled up at what is unchangeable.

    But hey, here’s some hope. My son asked me tonight if I ever punched someone. I said yes, when a guy called me “ch*nk”. He said he’s never heard that word. KHuang, that’s good news you know. My son goes to school with East Indians, Filipinos, Latinos, African Americans, Chinese, Vietnamese, Koreans, Causcasions … his best friend is African American. Times have changed. I know it isn’t all roses, and new injustices have come along.

  • snowynm

    i unfollow them long ago, instead i put all of them into a twitter List i created. create this List under your profile first, then add them to that List, this way they wont mess up your timeline. you can look up twitter help on how to use the List feature. the main thing is you do not need to follow them in order to put them into a list. its a new feature and a better way to organize your followings/followers.

  • jolno

    Kobe is a copycat who stole all of Jordan’s moves. Too bad he can’t steal Jordan’s fundamentals or team-oriented plays and that’s why Kobe is just a lucky chucker piggy-backed on dominant big men and best coach of all time to championships. Kobe is really all about making difficult shots (i.e. good for Hollywood showcase). Too bad those shots are not efficient nor counted for more points LOL.

  • Brent Yen

    Oh…thanks for the tip…..I will try later…

  • Bearness

    I’m betting he starts so BS can do some damage control.

  • Brent Yen

    They must know something that we do not too…

  • jolno

    I wonder if Timmy was bummed about not being able to talk to Jeremy on the court tonight. I think Duncan really likes Lin from the way they interact with each other.

  • CJSHYY

    But BS still did whatever he wants… smh! I started to think Buss family are not tough enough to in charge this team. Why they allowed BS treated Lin so bad & they didn’t even stop him at all?

  • JoeTeam

    that sparks me to think … post game:

    Timmy: “Whaszzah, J? When are you coming to throw me some lobs?”
    Tony: “Monsieur Jeremie, ca va?”
    KL: “My man, you weren’t even there for me to pick, what’s wrong with you?”

    Heh heh …

  • Brent Yen

    SO he sits earlier too…LOL

  • rookie75094

    And Jlin will shine to further embarrass bs.

  • John Lee

    Right now I feel the same way I did in June 2014…

  • Bearness

    What was June 2014?

  • 7iger

    Well, Magic and Worthy have a hand in the tainted Lakers franchise because they saw it but didn’t do anything to help. They care more about saying BS face than saving the franchise.

  • Brent Yen

    when Lin is still stuck with HOU?

  • jolno

    LOL. Well, you can tell Pop never took the Lakers seriously tonight because he never asked KL to go guard Clarkson. If KL can get over all the freak injuries he had earlier this season, the Spurs is probably still the team to beat in the playoffs.

  • LAJane

    I don’t think BS worries about damage where Lin is concerned. I think it’s personal enough that he’s very willing to take the heat in return for the pleasure of insulting him. He also feels emboldened because he’s doing king Kobe’s bidding. His contract is guaranteed, so he has no real fear of the FO…who are at best MIA and at worst in agreement. The fans, sponsors, and TV ratings are of no interest to him because they don’t directly affect his employment or his salary. He feels he can do and say as he darned well pleases.

  • Linja

    Monday morning QBing, just think if Lin were to come out after the game and said that he is glad for the guys who got to start. That would have made BS a pebble on the highway that even a tank would crush over. Just saying…..

  • blubell

    Yeah, not reporting a crime is a crime.

  • JoeTeam

    You are objectively right. I’m just calling in the relativistic framework to say … what the hey, it was a good night.

    As the recoils settle down, we’ll wake up to realize … Jeremy has upstaged Kobe again despite BSc’s effort to push him down. Just by sitting the pine, he’s upstaged Kobe’s season ending announcement on Monday. For, nobody cares about a whiny old guy making stuff up, Jeremy is a good guy, a great player that changes teams from ok to great, and his fans all over the world have show their faith in him. They tried to take Lin down with them, but they are on their own.

  • Bearness

    Oh, I think this is way worse. But, at the same time, the end is much closer.

  • Brent Yen

    On the contrary, I feel he doing those because he wanna gain control….

  • jolno

    Magic is probably more worried about the Dodgers than the Lakers which he had no ownership of lol.

  • Jack

    That wouldn’t have done anything glad lin left

  • JoeTeam

    heh heh, you called this right. But, let’s just see how the adv revs end up on BSc head.

  • LAJane

    But what control? Doesn’t he already control? He’s been diminishing minutes, punishing, and dissing freely already.

  • Brent Yen

    No doubt…..future is always bright…

  • Brent Yen

    IDK…only to Lin tho….Does not seen in control otherwise…

  • Rick Johnson

    As long as BScott feels he has Kobe support he doesn’t care what the Busses or Mitch think. Not even sure what they think though.

  • Tey Ling

    You are right, they are being “accessory” to the injustice and stupidity.

  • Bearness

    Unrelated stuff, but Klay Thompson hits 13-of-13 shots with 9 3s to notch a NBA-record 37 points in the third quarter. Wow, talk about having the hot hand!

  • JoeTeam

    … for Lin. I think for many too, and we are called to pray for those whom it doesn’t look good for.

  • Spot

    My thought:

    This was going to happen. Probably that’s the reason why Houston gave 2 picks for Jeremy, just to ruin his carreer.
    The only thing Jeremy could do is buy out his contract and find another team. But that will be much harder cause probably Lakers don’t want to do that and if there is a team interested, they will try to sign him low this summer.

    Jeremy breaks too many stereotypes for basketball: Asian, true Christian, kind and polite on court, from Harvard…

    Tough situation. All we can do is support and pray

  • John Lee

    June 2014 was when we were awaiting and hoping for a trade, but no news yet.

  • Tey Ling

    Just like rolling a snowball downhill and then the avalanche .

  • joyce ward

    It is s interesting that the Laker beat reporters have gone silent about tonight game. Even the LA time mentioned only Nick Young and that Lin didn’t play. I think Scott knew he messed up when he said I know what Jeremy can do, but I wanted to see what Price could do. The reporters were giving him the side eye.. So it will be interesting to see what happens next game. Also tonight indicated to me that if Lin was upset that he isn’t aware of any impending trade. This was all on Scott.

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir~

  • Tey Ling

    It has been and is still IS PERSONAL!

  • John Lee

    To be fair, Magic did push for Lin to start over Price on the media, and Worthy always spoke in favor of Lin as much as possible without dissing Price.

  • Bearness

    Good points. I guess it won’t be pretty for Lin during next 3 months.

  • Brent Yen

    Wait so are you saying Lin was upset or not?

  • Tey Ling

    It is either BS just have air in his brains or it is disgust with JLin. Poor Price is just a scapegoat.

  • JT

    man, LA has great fans, I feel sorry for them that they have a toxic FO.

  • Brent Yen

    Some of the fans are gr8 indeed…some are……

  • 7iger

    But they never criticized what BS did or do.

  • JoeTeam

    Hope we’ll see KL peaking in POs.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL I guess they do respond to fans somehow..
    https://twitter.com/Maxxis_Tyres/status/558889524353597440

  • TTNN

    uh, it doesn’t work. Currently Lin only have 8M on book, if he buy out, all his money will show up in Laker’s space, so unless Lin take more than 50% pay cut, otherwise Lakers will have more cap space taken, and will need to pay tax. And taking more than 50% pay cut is too much. So, no, no way to buy out.

  • Brent Yen

    Not a penny less!

  • JoeTeam

    lol, that would then be aok by me, for BSc to have to sift through all the ‘truth’ about him.

  • jolno

    Good for Klay for having teammates willing to pass the ball to him when he’s hot and more importantly, coach not to take him out when he’s feeling it.

    If it were Lin, we’re probably looking at BS sending Lin to the bench after maybe 5 for 5. Nah, Lin wasn’t even allowed to play tonight so 0 for 0 it is LOL.

  • JoeTeam

    LMAO, this is very cool.

  • joyce ward

    I think that Lin was a little pissed, because he knew where Scott was coming from. That is why he refuted what Orim tried to say that he wasn’t available and Mark Medina trying to clean it up. I just think Scott made a boo boo, because clearly the F/o assumption was that Scott would play Lin as a starter , that is why they treated his Hollywood night jersey.I think lin thought that he would at leas get to play, not the only player that didn’t play, and that is what is more pissed about. He is use to Scott’s pettiness, but not playing him at all , broke the camels’s back for him

  • CJSHYY

    They do.

  • Bearness

    I can only dream of Lin playing in a system like Warriors or Spurs…

  • joyce ward

    Lin will be fine. He will come out better than you think. Tonight Scott tried to make him look bad, but he is #4 trending in the NBA, and It brought out a lot of questions from fans and the NBA, why Lin wasn’t palying

  • Spot

    OK, got it. Let’s see what happens then…

  • CJSHYY

    You think bc Lin was on trade table so he didn’t play tonight?

  • Brent Yen

    Oh I see…darn…I am too tired to read properly now….

  • LAJane

    IDK, Joyce. I’m not sure Scott thinks he messed up. Obviously reporters are gonna ask but they’ve uncritically swallowed every astonishing blather he’s barfed up in the past, so he just fearlessly pulls more thoughtless junk out of his backside. He’s not so stupid he doesn’t know DNP for Jeremy would be highly noticeable, so if he went ahead and gave him not just few minutes but NO minutes…then I can’t help thinking he’s not concerned about messing up, he’s happy to stick in the knife and watch the bystanders accept it.

  • rookie75094

    Is it possible that after running a laker legend to the ground… bs is now trying to protect the team remaining best player from injury?…. NOT!!! bs is not smart enough…. I have no doubt even Forrest Gump is a better coach than bs .

  • leeda harun

    next game against the rox…oh my I have a bad feeling..

  • Brent Yen

    No one can beat Gump…..just to be fair…

  • Briiick

    I guess BS/KB are trying to insult Lin as much as possible so that he won’t accept any possible offer given by the FO, similar to what KB did to DH12.

  • rookie75094

    Yup even Gump knows bs is” stupid as stupid does”

  • Bearness

    Don’t worry. Can’t really get worse than this. When you hit the bottom, no way to go but up.

  • Spot

    Well, if we look at the bright side Scott is killing all Lakers players. In this way Jeremy is fit and motivated more than ever

  • Tey Ling

    Aiyo yo (Malaysian slang of OMG) if after 40+ games a coach still want to see what a player can offer that coach is truly clueless.

  • I created a new post about what we can do with the clear DISCRIMINATION case against Jeremy Lin by Byron Scott

    Did DISCRIMINATION cause First DNP – Coach Decision for Jeremy Lin since Feb 2012?
    http://www.jlinportal.com/discrimination-cause-first-dnp-coach-decision-jeremy-lin-since-feb-2012/

    There should be more media uproar if LA reporters are not afraid to ask the hard questions in fear of losing access to Lakers locker room.

    What will happen next? Noone knows but I hope there is a sense of justice of right and wrong in the Lakers organization and Lakers media.

    For JLin Fans, we have the right to be angry but we would need to band together.

    Let’s Keep Calm, and see what’s the best way we can support JLin by providing proof of the discrimination.

  • 7iger

    Don’t think BS is smart enough to understand he messed up. All of his excuses has been shallow and repeteively shallow.

  • Brent Yen

    yes sir

  • nodomo

    Bs will get his day in reckoning. Just like Keith Smart…after Lin leaves the Lakers and recreates Linsanity for another team, people will interview BS and ask what happened this season….

  • jolno

    I still don’t understand why there are people blaming BS for playing Kobe too much when it was Kobe who decided how much he plays and BS is just a puppet taking the fall for Kobe’s own failures in fighting against father time. It’s fair game to blame BS for his awful treatments towards Lin but I really don’t think BS has any control over Kobe.

  • Briiick

    Why does KB care so much about the team after him ? I guess he wants LAL, at least part of the team after he retires.

  • Tey Ling

    Gosh isn’t the DnP treatment on a healthy player with better stats to be a PG starter sufficient proof?

  • LAJane

    If you really believe the FO assumed Scott would at least play Lin, then it suggests a big rift somewhere…like a BS/Kobe + maybe Jim Buss group, versus Mitch/Jeannie? Because BS is behaving like he’s only responsible to himself and Kobe and everyone else can drop dead if they don’t like him trying to kill Lin. And of course he’s got that nice fat guaranteed contract.

  • Tey Ling

    Would you as a human being be motivated? Most will be disillusioned.

  • blubell

    Perhaps FO is waiting for BScott to make even more mistakes so they have sufficient reasons to fire him and at the same time undermine Kobe, forcing him to retire… kill two birds with one stone? Finding a way to keep Jeremy and maintain all the sponsorships from Asia?

  • Tey Ling

    And The brainless BS would just say ……eh?..

  • 7iger

    Gosh I miss McHale , again

  • Spot

    To prove them wrong, again, i’d say yes. More than ever. More than when GSW waived him. And i think he’s much more hardheaded than me

  • JoeTeam

    Ouch!

  • CJSHYY

    Did this mean Lin was supposed to be starter tonight?

    https://twitter.com/LakersReporter/status/558811222573735938

  • blubell

    So it has come to this… 🙁

  • joyce ward

    If Mitch/F/O not saying anything to him, he thinks he is fine. But I watched Mitch/F/O let Mike Brown did what he wanted to do with the Lakers and they fired him 5 games into the season. The only saving grace for Scott was Kobe, now that he is out, he is trying now 2 develop Clarkson, which will not work because Scott is not that coach. Anyway lin will get offers from contending teams and it will be his choice. Scott will continue to put more snmite on the Lakers and this will really be on Mitch/F/O especially when Jeannie Buss sets them up to fail when they will not be contenders in three years.. Scott is doing everything he can now to save his job, now that kobe is out. He will try to boost Clarkson so that he can somehow keep his job during the rebuilding process, Lin will have moved on to a contending team.

  • Tey Ling

    Wishful thinking …

  • blubell

    Hence the question marks… lol.

  • Tey Ling

    SuperLintendo?

  • Tey Ling

    It means Lin is DNP

  • jolno

    Miss his awkward smile towards the Taiwanese media when the Rockets played against the Pacers in pre-season? LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Not sure what to believe anymore in this so-called “classy” org:-)

  • 7iger

    Yeah, never thought it would has.

  • GoodDayLA

  • Charlie Sun

    You know what? I will take solace in the fact that the Knicks have sunk so low since Linsanity and the Lakers are joining them at the bottom. And my faith in the basketball gods lends me to believe the Rockets will sink soon enough. The gods punish teams that squander basketball talent!

  • Briiick

    It seems KB=BS as Young mentioned a while ago. The more the FO wants to feature Lin in order to improve TV ratings, the more jealous the spoiled child of LAL feels and the more insult BS will put on Lin.

  • GoodDayLA

    yes i have thoght this too

  • CJSHYY

    This statement sounds like it was supposed to be Lin but they changed before the game…? “Looks like his minutes are going to Clarkson”

  • LAJane

    I guess. Mitch must be knowledgeable of Lin’s advanced stats and how valuable he has been, and how great he could be on a rebuilding team…you’d think he’d really want to keep him. But maybe if Kobe really retires they will opt to try for a new “star” and let Jeremy go without much of a fight. Feeling so sorry about that…but have to have faith in Lin’s strength and an ever-ascending path for him.

  • Rick Johnson

    BScott like the drug dealer, Kobe the addict. Scott was an enabler.

  • Briiick

    Oh you steal my prediction, LOL.

  • GoodDayLA

    thank you

  • Keith

    NO, i still remember he ignored reporter when was asked about Lin. He was the first one who benched Lin. SO NO>>>>

  • joyce ward

    I hear you but best believable that the Lakers organization is all about the mighty dollar and anyone who stands in the way of that will not be aboard the Lakers orhgalvanization. I suspect that they are waiting if kobe has surgery or not and he is done for the rest of the season. oh things will definitely change. I am not concerned about lin because he has shown himself to be an asset to any contending team.

  • 7iger

    At least he has never DNP Lin. When you miss your ex then you know the current relationship is over LOL

  • John Lee

    Worthy did gently question BS action on more than one occasion…within the social etiquette of former teammates.

  • linspiredinla

    No they didn’t.

  • blubell

    Yeah, I remember he did say couple times that Scott should look into playing Jeremy more.

  • deesee5

    But but Clarkson is half Asian. Can’t really call BS racist! Lol

  • exactly, we just need to bring awareness by politely pestering them

  • KL

    I have been quite speechless. I think part of the problem is that the internal dealings are not known to us. So I am just going to speculate wildly.

    For example, Kobe is furious at the losing. Scott, instead of owning up to his mismanagement, blames Jeremy for the team losing and calls him a bench player (the real reason for losing was Kobe’s decline and Scott’s poor coaching).

    Scott follows up with all kinds of tinkering but is further embarrassed when the bench becomes the NBA’s best bench. However, Jeremy still can’t win with Kobe because Jeremy cannot cover up all of Kobe’s flaws and Scott’s bad coaching.

    The front office is paralysed. It is divided because the Buss kids are fighting for power. Jeanie is the heir but Jim controls the front office people. Mitch is grieving.

    Or maybe Scott just hates Jeremy. Race and other differences. Scott is a thug (like McHale) vs classy gentleman Jeremy.

    Nobody knows but surely things have to change at some point.

  • Keith

    I don’t miss my ex when I know the current relationship is over. I know it is over because i want a new relationship.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    The Rockets are starting to sink deeper.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    KHuang,
    Don’t feel too bad. Your comments are welcome for many. I feel for you.

  • joyce ward

    What? why are you here again? I thoughtt you had band yourself. Don’t even start with me.

  • joyce ward

    Lin will be alright. Thus Laker organization will be struggling for the next 5-6 years. Lin will have already won his championship ring.

  • joyce ward

    What happened?

  • linspiredinla

    Yes, guaranteed.

  • joyce ward

    Why are you back?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Going to be very interesting after practice (if there is one) tomorrow. JLin will answer reporters questions as he said in his tweet. Just wonder what sort of drama will BS continue to create. Reality show continues…

  • Yascar

    Scott cancelled practice. It’s in the LA Times article.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    It’s already midseason. Those games against true top contenders has shown how much of a pretender they are.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Whatever the reason, Byron Scott has given Lakers a really bad reputation and has demoted fans from many areas. Lakers once a very popular franchise outside USA would one day find itself losing out. NBA would also one day find itself not welcome internationally. If this is just an American Sport, people should stay with baseball and American football.

    I think basketball is something special that would cross countries and races. It hurt to say that this is not the time yet. Perhaps people might think that Lakernation should die for Kobe, but I couldn’t agree. Perhaps it’s about time Lakers would be run out of town by the Clippers. It shouldn’t take too long with the franchise currently running by the Buss family.
    The Buss family and the FO is every bit responsible for the results of the team.

    That Byron Scott could do whatever he pleases with such a horrible won-loss record is beyond comprehension to me.

  • Keith

    Whatever this article means.

    http://sports.qq.com/a/20150124/023974.htm

    腾讯体育圣安东尼奥讯 北京时间1月24日,洛杉矶湖人做客圣安东尼奥挑战卫冕冠军。在这场比赛开始前,湖人当家球星科比被曝因右肩膀旋转袖肌腱撕裂,赛季或提前报销,整个湖人队似乎都蒙上了阴影。虽然身处圣安东尼奥这座小城,虽然这里的华裔甚至亚裔人口都非常少,但是在有林书豪(微博)比赛的时候,无论是曾经的尼克斯、火箭,还是如今的湖人,AT&T中心总会出现比往常更多的亚洲球迷身影。但是出人意料的是,今晚,林书豪根本没有上场。

    林书豪:不知道何时能上场

    科比受伤休战意味着林书豪会获得更多出场时间甚至首发?在比赛开始前,跟大多数人的想法一样,我也认为今晚书豪可以把握机会证明自己。但是,出人意料的是,书豪根本没有上场。在赛前训练时,林书豪依旧按部就班进行自己的投篮练习,只是当上半场打完林书豪还没有出战后,我们心里便明白,他今天应该根本不上场了。可是问题是:为什么?

    赛后来到更衣室采访林书豪,当被问到为什么没有出场时,他只是说教练决定的,自己也不知道为什么。他也表示自己没有任何的伤病困扰,所以他也不解。当记者问他知道自己下场会出战吗?他张望了一下更衣室的其他球员和球队工作人员,然后很无奈地摇头说:我也不知道。看的出来,林书豪确实情绪很低落,整个球队都在经历低谷,而自己在球队经历低谷的时候,却被按在场下,只能旁观这一切,确实很无奈。

    林书豪赛后推特:只有一个记者跟我说话

    对于一个球员而言,没有办法出场比赛已经够糟糕了,赛后采访时,甚至记者都对他没有兴趣和问题,或许林书豪也按捺不住内心的波动,在赛后他更新了一则推特,内容是:“我就呆在那儿,有个记者跟我聊了聊,没人再问我问题了。”当然,我相信事实可能并不像他想象的那么糟糕。

    作为这件事情的亲历者,事实是这样的。依照NBA的惯例,比赛之后球队教练先接受采访,然后球队更衣室会开放,记者便会进入更衣室采访球员。今天在湖人教练斯科特赛后接受采访中间,湖人更衣室便已经开放,记者们都在专心采访斯科特。当湖人更衣室门打开后,记者就站在门外,球队公关看到记者是唯一的亚洲人,便跟我说:“书豪今天会先接受采访,所以你可以进来采访他了。”于是,记者便径直进入更衣室,采访了林书豪。

    任何一支球队输掉比赛后,赛后更衣室都安静到压抑。一进门看到林书豪已经换好衣服站在那里,记者便上前对他进行采访。可以想象 ,当时的林书豪情绪很低落,在简单的寒暄和采访后,他问我你还有其他问题吗?记者表示没什么问题,林书豪便也离开了。

    湖人主帅斯科特赛后表示,也许林书豪会在下一场比赛得到机会,或许这样的消息会让林书豪以及他的球迷振奋一些。

  • linspiredinla

    She posted on JLin7 twitter that she was the reporter. I asked her what she asked him. She didn’t respond.

  • joyce ward

    The Asian fans overseas who support Kobe, need a reality check. When you treat as Asian American player the way they have treated Kobe, should give them food for thought. If they think the Lakers will treat them better , not gonna happen

  • linspiredinla

    How?

  • Tey Ling

    A joke ?

  • joyce ward

    We can agree disagree. Scott is a flim flam man.. He talks a good game, but when things are brought into the light, it is a different story, Lakers F/O is a really weak organization. Scott will be the one to run this organization into the ground because nobody wants to step up. This Lakers organization is about to get a reality check. No FA will sign here. Lin will get his contending offers and move on. LA will become a Clipper’s town because of poor management. Lin has served his purpose here to reveal all the shadiness that that Lakers claimed to revere as an organization. FA will not come to an organization with shaky management

  • Yascar

    No, I just read it. Mike Bresnahan reported that Scott cancelled practice.

  • Tey Ling

    Guess BS was afraid of JLin’s Q n A with the press.

  • Tey Ling

    What is brewing for the coach to cancel practice t’rrow?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe is all set to play for the ASG.
    Suddenly, we hear that he suffers from an injury on his shoulder which could have been avoided by playing less time. Both Jeremy, Ronnie and Clarkson could use the play time. Byron went with Kobe and Kobe can’t play in ASG this season. KARMA or it’s a Divine Truth that God’s choice is above human choices.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I doubt if Byron would be available for interview then. Both Byron, Kobe and Lakers might be run out of town LA already.
    I doubt if Byron would still be a coach. Kobe would have to face his destiny; that doesn’t sound too good.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I like your conclusion. It’s all on Scott.
    He’s the coach and he is deemed responsible for everything on and off the court in playing basketball.
    Taking Lin off the court and being flat humiliated by the Spurs on a back to back game is a bitter pill to swallow.
    The Lakers had never been in the game; the Spurs just toyed with them.

  • joyce ward

    Maybe Mitch summoned him for what happened tonight whith lin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It is distressing, isn’t it Joyce? I would think basketball is a game that players can compete without politics involved. That really takes all the fun away from the game.

  • John Lee

    We’ll find out soon enough. With what happened to Mitch recently, he can’t possibly be in a very good mood.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That doesn’t make the FO less responsible.
    The organization is sick!

  • JAD2456

    But in the beginning of the season, I remember when they two discussed about the minutes Kobe should play, BS said he was surprised that the number of minutes in Kobe’s mind was even lower than the minutes BS suggested. He refused to reveal the minutes they thought. Then he just said between 30 to 40. So I think he did have a say about how many minutes Kobe played.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’d better be.
    Taking the fun out of a game do the fans a disservice.
    The game with Jeremy would definitely have been more interesting than that.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It will take more than a season for Clarkson to develop unless Byron thought that Clarkson could be an overnight star like Linsanity. I daresay that Byron would be disappointed. Clarkson is not a game changer that Jeremy once was to turn around a franchise.

    Today the Lakers was humiliated and blown out by the Spurs on a back to back game. The Spurs had just been blown out by Chicago. That didn’t add up to Clarksonsanity. Clarkson is a scorer but not a playmaker.

    Byron is taking on the FO head-on. He’s virtually telling the FO that the trade for Jeremy Lin was stupid. We all know that the FO thought the trade for Jeremy Lin was smart and something special. Byron was virtually telling Mitch that you were a fool trading for Jeremy Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I sure hope you’re right.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Magic has helped to put Jeremy in the starting position at the beginning of season but Byron managed to make Lin look bad. However, Jeremy came back in the last 2 games and played absolutely brilliantly at the defensive end with 3+ steals in each of them. Jeremy even put up 10 assists in the game against Phoenix.

    Frankly, I’m impressed that Lin came back after the Utah game. It is so clear that Byron want to demolish Lin’s professional career as a basketball player. It’s a horrible thing for a coach to do.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It makes Byron’s excuse of playing Ronnie Price instead of Jeremy Lin a lame excuse.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Action on the court speaks louder than words and the finger.
    I hope Lin play well and prove Byron completely wrong about him.

  • Tey Ling

    What a mess for The team with this latest stupid act of BS. Confused, disheartened, directionless, upset etc etc are all emotions going in their head.

  • joyce ward

    I b notice how on social media how how Laker r media i s going out of their way to praise Clarkson. they have been totally silent. tonight. They had the scott interview, and nothing else. and now practice has been cancelled. Might not be nothing…..but……..just sayin

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    There is no turning back for Byron Scott.
    If I were the FO, I would have one assistant take over the coaching and sit down Byron Scott for a few games. That would teach him a lesson.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m more inclined to look for Divine Intervention.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is dragged miserably and helplessly.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Have a good feeling that you’re right, urgent !meeting among management

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s a real civilized response considering the situation that Lin was in.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Byron is all but fair to Jeremy. Byron is on his way to sabotage Lin’s career by his comments about Jeremy. However,

    Lin has proved him wrong lately with his performance on the court. The only thing left for him to do is to keep Lin from playing and proving him wrong again and again.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    On the contrary, Byron didn’t know what Jeremy can do and there’s nothing left to look at for a 31 years old journeyman in NBA who had played in NBA for 9 years. Byron dissed Jeremy by praising Ronnie in the most abnormal manner. He’s trying to break Lin’s confidence.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s a good question!
    But it seems to me that the FO has been lame but somehow they jumped on the opportunity to get Tarik Black off the waiver. They aren’t that lame. Are they really aware of what the Lakers is heading? They are lame in not seeing that most fans do. Have they waited too long to fire Byron Scott before Byron took his actions at the next level? We have yet to see.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    That’s right. Well guess Lakers is an entirely different org when old Buss passed. Go LA Clippers!

  • Carol Tiu

    hmm.. so now they won’t be able to interview Jeremy again because practice has been canceled. Darn!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I would recommend Timberwolves rather than he Spurs. Lin could join Mo Williams and have fun in taking Minnesota back into contention.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep. It’s just a practice ground for Spurs. What a fun night for Spurs!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I would think God has already had an answer for Kobe the Bryant.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That meant LAL should sell the franchise.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s impossible. Lin is too smart to give them any clues on this.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Kobe won’t be around next year with his glass shoulder, and Achilles tendon.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep I’m surprise for not seeing any tweets from media people. Seem like all closed down like that. I wasn’t sure as I don’t follow that many media people anymore but didn’t see any tweet from anyone is just a little bit unusual.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Well Spoken!

  • Andy B

    Fire BS and hire George Karl already!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Good! my lady!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Hopefully so. Fire BS!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Make no excuse. Lin has been in the doghouse fighting his way out all season.
    What Byron said makes the FO look real bad!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Thank you.
    It is comforting to know that Laker fans are still kind to Jeremy.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ronnie is a 9 year NBA veteran and not a rookie.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Think of how much he must have gone through in the game time. That $200K means nothing.

  • John Lee

    Cancelled practice is a good thing, it means something is up and BS is being called away. At this point there’s nowhere to go but up for Jeremy, be it a waive or a trade or…dare we dream, BS dismissal (or at least a reprimand and orders to play Lin).

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    You could say whatever opinion about Jeremy’s performance on the practice. Who is going to argue?
    Everybody knows what Byron is doing with the exception, perhaps, himself.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Amen.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Please keep us informed. Thank you.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron is virtually calling him out a fool who traded for Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Better sit him out and let him watch his assistant turning the team around.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    and a clueless coach.

  • Maknusia

    They sure do, better than ROX, it goes the same to media as well

  • Maknusia

    except for the coach, they remain the same, sigh

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s about keeping Lin away from the court.
    Byron is afraid that Jeremy will go Linsane when Kobe isn’t there.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron’s contract would be the very last one he received.

  • Carol Tiu

    That’s truly encouraging…. But what if they continue DNP-CD him? BS thick skin can take everything thrown at him. He’s willing to do the dirty work and lie left and right as long as the price is right.

  • John Lee

    Then you watch out for two dates: February 19 (trade deadline), and if nothing happens wait until on or after April 16 (day after end of Lakers’ season).

  • CJSHYY

    The practice has been cancelled right after Lin’s tweet about reporter can talk to me after practice tomorrow…. something going on in the team for sure. Bc in the beginning Lakers showed Lin’s jersey in the tweet for tonight’s photo or.. But later they changed to show Clarkson’s pictures…due to new lineup …

  • grover chang

    Feel bad for Mitch, he doesn’t need this stuff now. Let the man grieve. I wish we could use a few expletives at least for awhile on this site. I think the times are warranted. (;-)

  • joyce ward
  • 7iger

    No one can take the heat from JLin fans so they rather stay away from twitter

  • Linja

    That is an idea:
    let’s trade the bench players Lin, 6′-3″, 200lb, 26, $8mil, for Rondo, 6′-1″, 186 lb, 28. $12mil.

  • Brewkowski

    Same number of points as Price.
