G51 LAL @CLE Game Thread

Knowing Jeremy & bench can only get 20-23min if they are leading 10+ points, we can hope the Cavs will play a great game so Byron has to play the LINCREDIBLE Bench to counter the Cavs  without totally obliterating LA tank!.

Let’s keep hoping, cheering and praying for JLin to give his best no matter what if there is trade or not!

Go JLin!  😎

    Possible audition today? Let’s hope Jeremy puts on a show.

    Cleveland Cavaliers Trade Rumors: Norris Cole, Jeremy Lin, Reggie Jackson, Mo Williams Options For Kyrie Irving Backup?

    http://www.sportsworldreport.com/articles/43387/20150206/cleveland-cavaliers-rumors-trade-for-norris-cole-jeremy-lin-reggie-jackson-mo-williams-options-for-lebron-james-kyrie-irving-support.htm

    “The Cleveland Cavaliers may look at some trade support at the NBA trading deadline and names like Norris Cole, Mo Williams, Jeremy Lin, Jose Calderon, Reggie Jackson, Lance Stephenson, Tyler Ennis or Gerald Green could be options, as the team wants some offensive depth behind Kyrie Irving and on the wing as the Cavs try to make a title run with LeBron James and Kevin Love.”

  • grover chang

    The smartest part of that article is the title. There are like 8 different players in the title. Plenty of hits, especially Jeremy Lin, the biggest name of the bunch.LOL.

  • sws94

    Reggie Jackson is the biggest name of the bunch, at least in terms of his on-the-court play.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clippers’ bench who need to look for equal opportunity to compete, need to get out of LA.

  • grover chang

    Reggie Jackson was better before, he has become more selfish and just trying to score. Maybe if he kept a better attitude okc would not be shopping. Jackson seems to think he is another Westbrook.

  • 1mtoldman

    i tend to see it the opposite way: jackson was getting his minutes before but now with waiters there’s been kind of “lin’d”

  • 1mtoldman

    well jackson hasn’t been getting the minutes lately; his on the court play early in the season was based on his starting due to westbrook. n.a.

    but broadly over all last season and this lin and jackson are pretty much equal as the best non starters point guards in the league.

    clearly they both deserve a starting opportunity. jackson is more likely to get it and also thereby less likely to be desirous of a continued back up role.

    course he may have to wait till next season (as lin i would think will) to seek that.

  • 1mtoldman

    i read again some posting that bs said clarkson was the “future” of the tankers at point guard.

    i suppose makes as much sense as anything he says but if you assume that at some point at least theoretically he would have to be pretending to be interest in winning and winning would require a point guard capable of assists (which is a prime part of the point guard requirements, in theory)–

    an astounding stat on clarkson: he is the only point guard (defined as someone playing the point guard position) playing any significant minutes with less than 2 assists a game.

    the only one.

    clearly he is not (among other things he is not including “the future”)–a point guard.

  • Rick Johnson

    Well just confirms Dolan is the jerk we all thought he was and why we shouldn’t wish JLin to go back to the NYK just to make this guy richer:

    New York Knicks and Cablevision CEO James Dolan lashed out at a lifelong fan over email, suggesting the fan was an alcoholic who should start rooting for the Nets “because the Knicks don’t want you.”

    http://deadspin.com/dolan-start-rooting-for-the-nets-because-the-knicks-d-1684489469?utm_campaign=socialflow_deadspin_twitter&utm_source=deadspin_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

  • blubell
  • grover chang

    And that is an illustration of what is wrong with the thunder. Why should a shooting guard take minutes away from a point guard? Because they have no true point guard. They are a horrible 28th in the league for assist to fg ratio. If Lin for some crazy reason was on the thunder, they would think he came from another planet because they have not seen a pure passing guard like him.

  • Martinez

    He is trying his best to make the Knicks better and then this letter. What do you expect? If he wasn’t trying, then he wouldn’t have gotten this upset over one letter from a fan. The fan obviously went overboard as well, and Dolan needs to work on his grammar.

  • Rookie75094

    Jimmie dolan is a jerk… there is no ifs or buts about it. I feel sorry for the Knicks fans

  • Rick Johnson

    ‏@robinlundberg
    I would describe Dolan’s email as petty and dumb. The pettiness is obvious, and it was incredibly dumb to think it wouldn’t be made public.

  • Rookie75094

    I just read the email from the fan…there is nothing overboard in it. … This really validate my opinion of dolan. .. he is and always has been a Jerk

  • Rick Johnson

    Why? Something wrong w Blake Griffin?

    Oh! Thanks.

    BS will make it 10 straight today.

  • 1mtoldman

    staph infection; one report says will have to have surgery.

    OKLAHOMA CITY — Los Angeles Clippers star forward Blake Griffin has a staph infection in his right elbow and will be sidelined at least through the All-Star break.

    The Clippers announced prior to Sunday afternoon’s game against the Thunder that Griffin will undergo surgery Monday to remove the staph infection and will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

    Griffin has had to deal with bursitis in his right elbow throughout his career and routinely has it drained during the course of the season. He most recently had fluid drained from the elbow Feb. 2, when the Clippers were in New York to play the Nets.

    “When you have diarrhea and vomiting, you may say you have the “stomach flu.” What it’s really called is gastroenteritis.

    Although it may make you feel bad, it’s an illness that has nothing to do really with flu. In gastroenteritis, your stomach and intestines are irritated and inflamed. The cause is typically a viral or bacterial infection.

    Symptoms of Gastroenteritis

    With gastroenteritis, the main symptoms you probably have are watery diarrhea and vomiting. You might also have stomach pain, cramping, fever, nausea, and a headache.

    Because of diarrhea and vomiting, you also can become dehydrated. Watch for signs of dehydration, such as dry skin and a dry mouth, feeling lightheaded, and being really thirsty. ”

  • CaliUSMC

    Kind of glad he’s not playing.

  • Rick Johnson

    Being held out of game for potential upcoming trade? Or got something from sushi in Orlando?

  • CaliUSMC

    too bad Lillard has been stinking up it since he found it he was snubbed for the all star game.

  • 1mtoldman

    why not? everyone else is doing it: davis (shoulder) griffin (staph infection) melo (“recovery”).

    all the big names.

  • 1mtoldman

    speaking of “no true point guard” see my comments somewhere above or below on the “the future” tankers point guard.

    (oh well ill repeat it here to save the trouble):

    an astounding stat on clarkson: he is the only point guard (defined as someone playing the point guard position) playing any significant minutes with less than 2 assists a game.

    the only one.

    clearly he is not (among other things he is not including “the future”)–a point guard.

  • 1mtoldman

    an excellent summation.

    new sequel these days would have to change the slogan to : “lose one for the gipper”

    (tankathon days)

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sushi he ate yesterday?

  • joyce ward

    Yep, probably. Lin cooks when he is home, but I suspect that he tries to eat healthy on the road, but sometimes it’s hard.

  • jolno
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Sushi is healthy but very careful eat the restaurant you know. Raw fish.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Double shot of Scotch will solve the problem. Lol

    Hahaha

  • joyce ward

    LOL

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Good for you kd

  • David Kim

    down 30 now LOL

  • FrankW

    Bench points last five games:

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • DLin

    He needs to play to showcase his abilities to CAVs – potential landing spot for him.

  • joyce ward

    I love that he gave a disclaimer about his gastroenteritis, just in case he doesn’t look his best.

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • Charlie Sun

    Time for an epic game like MJ’s flu game? A man can dream =)

  • joyce ward
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Some nice history

  • Martinez

    A lot of people are jerks
    at least he’s not being hypocrite like so many hes honest and felt offended by the email
    you dont think the fan was rude because you dont like Dolan

  • joyce ward
  • Martinez

    He got them zen master

  • Charlie Sun

    I blame BS. Giving JLin a stomach bug to continue the tank =P

  • Charlie Sun

    Opening video and picture for this game had JLin featured a bit

  • Charlie Sun

    So far Lakers have been able to drive and score

  • Alaingrvis

    wes alone has outscored the starters

  • Alaingrvis

    kyrie plays zero defense

  • Grace Nsns

    like always.

  • Alaingrvis

    so both jr smith and kyrie plays zero defense. if lin goes to cavs he would play atleas in smiths role

  • JW

    how did cav win 12 in a row? no interior defense at all

  • 1mtoldman

    not surprising since no one in the “starting lineup” is averaging in double figures scoring for the season.

  • Alaingrvis

    well they don’t respect the lakers which is why they show less effort today till the second haif. a lot of teams do that to lal

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah thats why tankers stay in games in the first half and it doesn’t look so bad. but come the second half….

  • Grace Nsns

    They look sleepy.

  • Promo Sports World

    Kevin Love plays no D so be is a big minus

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Because they play against junks. No motivation

  • 1mtoldman

    lin comin in ?

  • Alaingrvis

    yea

  • Keith

    Lakers gotta put in Jeremy Lin if they wanna win— Nate |-/ (@NateTheGreat_15) February 8, 2015

  • Keith

    Not yet.. 🙂 after the break maybe

  • Promo Sports World

    Kevin Love is not the same guy on the Cavs which proves good stats on bad teams mean nothing

  • 1mtoldman

    he was at the scorers table from about 5 minutes i think but no break.

  • Promo Sports World

    That nick young shot was wow

  • JW

    BS saying trying to lose game will back fire. What is it? might actually win?

  • 1mtoldman

    a little off center but bob dylan was big story couple nites ok at pre grammy events. i always think of a dylan lyric when i see bs on the sidelines: “the lampost stands with folded arms”.

  • Promo Sports World

    Kyrie looking to embarrass Jeremy geez

  • Alaingrvis

    well lin is sick so i expect a little dip defensively

  • Promo Sports World

    But kyrie destroyed lillard too so make sure to point that out to the haters

  • grover chang

    Kyrie has been hot for the past two weeks. Pray Lin could adjust and shut him up.

  • Promo Sports World

    Irving is a handful for everyone

  • Alaingrvis

    lin just has to fight through the sickness

  • Promo Sports World

    lin will get his back now

  • Alaingrvis

    yea add sick into it and houston we have a problem

  • Alaingrvis

    yea

  • Promo Sports World

    Bigs need to help on the screens

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    K Irving apparently hasn’t forgotten Lin dropped triple double on him.

  • Alaingrvis

    davis will have to help a little more then he has

  • JW

    just seems LAL so slow in getting into their set.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea idk why

  • joyce ward

    The thing with lin, he has to outplay everybody on the team to get props. It is not fair, but that is the politics of the NBA. Lakers are the only one pushing the Clarkson narrative. Lin needs to let his game speak for itself when given the opportunity.

  • JW

    it just makes Lin makes like he’s wasting time dribbling out there

  • Promo Sports World

    This will be the way it is for his whole career

  • Promo Sports World

    Jeremy needs shots to come will be out soon

  • Alaingrvis

    young not getting back on defense

  • Promo Sports World

    Wanted this to be a showcase game not sure I’m going to get it….holding out hope

  • Alaingrvis

    he is sick

  • sws94

    What’s wrong with him?

  • Promo Sports World

    If there was every bad timing…I wanted him to kill delladova

  • Grace Nsns

    GI issue

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Must have been served by 3 days old fish

  • JW

    bad chipotle?

  • Grace Nsns

    or sushi

  • joyce ward

    If lin is not feeling it, he needs to sit down…smh

  • Alaingrvis

    bench defense is off

  • sws94

    Byron could play Price.

  • joyce ward

    Is lin playing?

  • JW

    yes

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yea, probable. Sushi in Orlando?

  • joyce ward

    what is he doing?

  • JW

    great no look from Lin to Black

  • Rene#17

    Lin not feeling and playing well. Coach BS will play him more minutes since the game on national tv.

  • JW

    Ellington should’ve made that layup, but great put back by Black again.

  • Alaingrvis

    lead down to three the defense is picking up

  • Rick Johnson
  • Alaingrvis

    bench looked very fatigued to start but defense is picking up. also cavs are not contenders. defense is blah. while offense is a lot of one on one

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin needs to keep going for a chance to go to the ft line instead of pulled back for bank shot

  • Alaingrvis

    when you are sick fatigue is an issue

  • orLinaryjoe

    Thumbs down for that thumbs up sushi chef.

  • joyce ward

    So how is lin looking so far?

  • Promo Sports World

    16 mins tops tonight

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No one cares.

  • Promo Sports World

    Nothing to report about…1-3 I think and a couple of
    Dimes

  • Alaingrvis

    lin got it down to 3 back to 9

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Bs rotation is beyond stupid

  • Rick Johnson

    6-0 run since Lin out

  • Promo Sports World

    Would be nice to play clarkson and Lin together but won’t happe.

  • Rzo Vlade

    nick young garbage

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    9 now

  • orLinaryjoe

    NoLin, no Win as they say. More disappointed Lin not able to showcase himself.

  • kauaiblue

    Just like starters giving up lots

  • Promo Sports World

    And just like that it’s a blow-out when Jeremy and the vets go out

  • 1mtoldman

    beat me 2 it.

  • Alaingrvis

    like that 3 point lead to 15

  • Rick Johnson

    12-0 run since Lin out

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin just got rythm n you know what happens next

  • Rene#17

    Wow the passing by Cleveland so sharp. Lakers looks so sad.

  • 1mtoldman

    im 2 slow

  • kauaiblue

    Ur not watching?

  • joyce ward

    He is sick. I think GM’s will over look that , and realize that he is their game changer when he is allowed to play his game.

  • Grace Nsns

    Clock went off.

  • Alaingrvis

    this game is likely over before lin gets in there

  • Rene#17

    It’s too bad he got sick for this game.

  • Grace Nsns

    Lakers scored 0 for 3min, Cavs woke up already.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Does the laker to have any standard for their team¿

  • blubell

    So he should just rest…

  • 1mtoldman

    the plus side is; if lin is feeling well enuf to play dont have to worry about having him pulled later because score is getting closer “starters” have opened up a nice big padded lead. whats the run? from 3 points down (dangerously close to not losing) to 15 down.

  • 1mtoldman

    all starters must average less than double figure scoring would be one.

  • blubell
  • Rene#17

    Why isn’t a laker sitting on Love at the 3 pt line?

  • 1mtoldman

    what was that then? a 20 to 2 run once lin went out?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Mosgov is so active big man

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Why does b Scott still have the job?

  • 1mtoldman

    tank commander.

  • Alaingrvis

    this is embarrasing. bench wasn’t there to save starter although lins parting gift was only a 3 point deficit. now down by 15 which is very lucky

  • joyce ward

    I hope lin comes out in the 2nd second half and figures out what he needs to do to help the team. I know that he is sick, but unfortunately NBA will not give him any alilibies

  • 1mtoldman

    im pretty sure it was a 20 to 2 run once lin went out; went from 41-44 to 43-64

  • Alaingrvis

    him being sick idk. also the lakers are down by 15 who knows what deficit he will come into.

  • orLinaryjoe

    We see it. Not sure they do, unfortunately.

  • CJSHYY

    Agree. BS just wants to tank….

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Meantime, do you guys remember the Cavs hired BS as their new coach hopefully to keep LBJ but instead he left to Miami?

    The result was the Cavs ended as the worst team

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Me too

  • sws94

    If they played a decent team ball offense, he could. But the way they play, not likely. The only thing is if his adrenaline takes over and he just raises his game, but I don’t know if that’ll happen.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just wonder what happened to Kelly? He only played 2:20m.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blubell
  • Sophie Paris

    I just like watching scott getting killed by his ex team.
    And it’s love night lol 😉

  • blubell

    He has several ex teams so we’ll see him getting killed multiple times this season 🙂

  • Rzo Vlade

    cavs just shoot and shoot lmao

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW It’s 57 v 81. JLin better stay in the bench:-)

  • BobbyH

    Hear hear.

  • Rick Johnson

    Clarkson not even looking to pass.

  • Rzo Vlade

    cavs now dont run play they shoot and shoot hahahaha

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No point to save this sorry BS pathetic rotation.

  • 1mtoldman

    these laker starters, tanker starters are just so bad. they’re an embarrassment to professional sports.

    i dont think i can watch any more of these tankers games just to see what lin does in the minutes hes given.

    they have 3 decent players lin boozer davis and they get the least minutes. its absurd. outside the logic of the tank.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Stats

  • Alaingrvis

    calling clarkson a pg is a joke

  • 1mtoldman

    see my note previously that clarkson is the only point guard in the nba playing any serious minutes who has fewer than 2 assists per game.

    the only one.

    period.

  • blubell

    lol

  • 1mtoldman

    again: wont repeat it again but bears repeating if it hasnt been seen:

    among current nba “point guards” playing more than 25 games 15 minutes a game jordan clarkson is the only one with fewer than 2 assists per game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Bs a coach is even a bigger joke

  • CaliUSMC

    I’m not watching the game.. But this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7pQW3QJ-Ec was the first vid in my youtube feed 🙁

  • justice

    I like your motto so im coming here from now on. Good Job!

  • blubell

    We now have justice! 🙂

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL What to figure out with BS? Lakers love him to death. So, BS is the combination of bad c and tank commander. Perfect matchup for Lakers.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Cavs play with a system, Lakers are like in summer camp

  • justice

    I guess Jlinportal good heart and donation really got into me..

  • Rookie75094

    It makes my blood boil to see these starting lakers scrubs getting humiliated and then Jlin getting blame for the result.

  • blubell

    Welcome and make yourself comfortable!

  • Rookie75094

    Clarkson is a freaking joke

  • sws94

    Actually, Lin played him well and didn’t go for all the change of direction dribbles. He got away from Lin due to a pick.

  • Alaingrvis

    hee is a rookie given to long of a leash not his fault

  • Rookie75094

    And bs is a bigger joke

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Rookie75094

    Like clockwork. ..Jlin got the lakers to within 3…bam…bs bring in clarkson

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The dirty about it is bs want clarksom to get points so LA media like stu can inflate him to the future

  • justice

    It is a blow out game maybe the bench and Lin will get more minutes. Oh wait, the starters are bench player…#nominute4linandboozz

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Regret waking up to watch this pathetic game again:-( Should know better. Just a slightly hope JLin will show more because of national TV game:-(

  • sws94

    He has 20 points.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Confusing

  • Rookie75094

    And the freaking game is a blow out…so what’s good about that

  • joyce ward

    Clarkson has 20 points against lebrons/irving…smh. Lin needs to wake up and smell the coffee..smh

  • Briiick

    Similar to a player in the 76ers.

  • sws94

    He has 20 points, he can score. He doesn’t look like a great player to me, but he isn’t exactly a joke either.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is sick with 9 minutes played

  • Rick Johnson

    Doesn’t get teammates involved in offense. They start slacking on defense. Hence blowout.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin do need to take more shots… but I doubt he will…. smh!

  • joyce ward

    Oh, the Lakers will make it a big case why lin is not a good PG. Most of the media will buy into it.

  • sws94

    He has lots of flaws but unfair to say he is a joke.

  • Grace Nsns

    So you got up for the game, kudos for you.
    Just another 8-9min, you can go back sleep. lol

  • Rick Johnson

    I didn’t say he’s a joke. I’d say he’s a SG not a PG.

  • Rookie75094

    I guess the laker bench will get bench for the rest of the game…lol

  • Bearness

    That’s not bad defense at all. Irving couldn’t get away from Lin.

  • Dan Cohen

    yes, but then again, it’s like 20 point deficit… that also say something

    Also lin is scared.

    He is scared of linsanity again because he doesn’t want all the attn on him and does his teammates a disservice that way. This in psychology study is call self -sabotaging.

  • sws94

    That’s true, but he’s been outscoring Lin badly. Lin needs to pick up the scoring when he’s feeling better.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What can u do when you only allow to play 8:41??

  • BobbyH

    50 games into the season, you should well know why Lin couldn’t do it while a rookie can

  • kauaiblue

    I know the feeling

  • Dan Cohen

    was he really sick.. i didn’t hear anything about that…

  • Alaingrvis

    probably let the bench finish the game. let the starters play whole quarter

  • Keith

    Hubie said that Clarkon can be a great back up. Not starting type of player.

  • Dan Cohen

    scouting report

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Can’t. It’s 8:18am now and I have an appointment to go @9:30:-(

  • David Kim

    Clarkson can be a back up SG not PG

  • blubell

    They’re not taking Clarkson seriously…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    If Lin keeps feeding boozer he deserves benchin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    NBA in general aren’t as dumb as most media or F/O wants to portray JLin. If so, why they always put double/triple on him?? Not going to worry about JLin unnecessarily.

  • Grace Nsns

    Sorry to hear that. Hope everything go well with you.

  • joyce ward

    The thing is that Lin has been in the NBA for a quite q awhile, and he needs to use his wisdom when it comes to the tricks of the NBA.. If he was sick, he needed to sit out the game.

  • Dan Cohen

    lol and reamember they (haters) were saying lin is not even a pg, he is a sg.. when lin was doing well.. sm

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin does exactly what bs wanted, guess what happened? Still benched

  • sws94

    OP did. I also think he is a SG.

  • Grace Nsns

    I saw 1 assist was taken off Clarkson’s stats.

  • Rookie75094

    Haters will start calling him soft for not crawling out of his deathbed to play

  • BobbyH

    Meaningless games and you want him to play while he is not 100%?

  • Dan Cohen

    that is why I say lin doesn’t understand. there is no point now…should just play his game.

  • sws94

    Sick players never sit. I don’t agree with that. I think he should get his shots going though when he’s feeling better in the next game.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is a guy. the warrior type mentality says if i can walk i play. its how all athletes think. as well as guys if they are strong. lin is strong. also he played 9 minutes what do you expect in 9 minutes

  • Keith

    KEVIN DING asked on Which Lakers player are you most interested in watching play right now? After only retweeted ones saying “Jordan Clarkson ” , he concluded that Lakers want to see Jordan Clarkson .

  • Dan Cohen

    he will stillget bench regardless if he is sick or not.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No one cares win or lose. Get your stats n get out

  • Rookie75094

    Omg…Jlin sighting

  • Yascar

    It doesn’t after what Clarkson or Lin do right now. jeremy is going, JC staying.

  • Dan Cohen

    as a lin fan.. I expect a lot from him in 9 miutes.

  • Grace Nsns

    good logic, lol

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Another pass?

  • Keith

    Haters will try to find anything to bash Lin. Lin wants to play, let him be. Good or bad.

  • Grace Nsns

    Oh, one more TO, come on Jeremy!

  • Briiick

    Lin cares and that why I am a fan of his, not someone who cares stats more than wins.

  • JW

    Shumpert knew how the offensive set is. almost got a steal.

  • Rookie75094

    Let me guess..24 pts 10 ast?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Pass again

  • Dan Cohen

    see that’s what I mean.. he pass instead of shooting .. things would’ve been better if he shot that from the arc.. he is scare. and end up a to

  • JW

    Lin’s not doing well . they stopping his dribbling path

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin got killed both ends

  • joyce ward

    he always gives them that script to doubt him.Lin needs to understand that he needs to play better than any player on the tea. Until he understands that , he will always be criticized more for his poor play. It is not right, but it is not a level playing field when it comes to him. Until he understands that , he will always be a day late and a dollar short…just sayin…

  • GoodDayLA

    30 minutes right? Maybe it’s time to start trusting more in gooddayla and less in yourself. I know what I am talking about.

  • blubell

    Nice drive!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Too f k late lin

  • webattorney

    Didn’t see the game, but checking box score, I see Clarkson got 20 points and 4 assists. I guess he’s improving with more PT.

  • Rookie75094

    He shoot and scored…everybody put down your pitchfork now

  • Alaingrvis

    he score while we was down by 25

  • Dan Cohen

    it’s too predictable compare to pnr… it’s always an entry pass to booz or nick or whatever..I even figure it out by now..so bs is idiotic.

  • JW

    so was Lin sick mentioned during this game?

  • sws94

    So, if Lin can drive to the hole like that and score so smoothly, he should do it more. If Kyrie scores on him, he should come right back and score on Kyrie. He’s lost that aggressive you get me I’ll get you quality that he had that put him on the map.

  • webattorney

    In GoodDayLA I trust.

  • CJSHYY

    Did they put the D on him?

  • Bearness

    No passing. Just took it himself every time pretty much.

  • joyce ward

    He has been scouted, which should not be new to him. That is why most GM ‘s in the league consider him a backup, because he doesn’t know how to adjust his game when some new defense is presented to him,

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    You’re right as I totally underestimated the bias n stupidity of BS.

  • Rookie75094

    So it is not good for him to score now… tough crowd

  • BobbyH

    Sine when this site becoming a Lin bashing site with all negatives?

    Lin is not doing well, but what he could do? He could not even lift his legs normally.

  • Alaingrvis

    lin is slower today because of sickness. he looks fatigue. he is fighting through it so love the heart

  • Dan Cohen

    that would be nice…IF his teammates are also that good for his assist.

    seriously at least 5 points and at least 2 assists.

  • Dorothy

    And one of the commentator said Clarkson has excellent vision. SMH

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    He didn’t even try

  • webattorney

    Agreed. Why does he want to play when he’s sick and can’t give 100% effort and Lakers are clearly tanking?

  • Alaingrvis

    well he is sick so idk

  • GoodDayLA

    It brings me no pleasure. The tank is blatant. It is an organizationAl Lakers effort to tank, We must all unite and wait for Lin to explore fee agency in thesummer.

  • JW

    I don’t take it as Lin Bashing. Some people might not be watching live. Just an observation. People have an off game.

  • GoodDayLA

    I trust in webattorney as well

  • blubell
  • Charlie Sun

    Any L4D fans? (It’s a video game).

    TANK!

  • Dorothy

    33333333333333333333333333333

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No he wasn’t. He went coast to coast to score

  • joyce ward

    Sit his azz on the bench and not play…duh,,,,

  • Rookie75094

    Oh he hits a 3

  • Grace Nsns

    a 3pointer?!

  • blubell

    Looong 3

  • LAJane

    Avoid the slough of despond. “Whole career” is too big a mouthful.

  • Alaingrvis

    every now and then. but is fatigued

  • Dan Cohen

    not scouted yet…

  • webattorney

    I don’t trust in myself. Ha, ha.

  • sws94

    He is, he obviously doesn’t have his usual energy and why don’t you cool it with the ragging on him.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Let’s gooooooo lin!

  • JW

    WIth his 3 year contract, he might tie that for the LAL’s worst 3 seasons in history.

  • GoodDayLA

    What I wanted Lin to do to protect himself with the lakers was play like Clarkson does. But Lin is too good a player to just score 20 And lose by 20. But it would have protected Lin’s own NBA relevancy more

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Just drained a long 3

  • Alaingrvis

    this year is 1 so off to a great start

  • Rookie75094

    Ask and you shall receive… that why I will back Jlin no matter what… unlike some….

  • Alaingrvis

    soo

  • webattorney

    In a tanking team, that’s not a bad idea. Can’t blame him for doing that, because how is he going to improve his offense unless he takes those shots? He can always work on playing more team style when he needs to. He basically has a free ride to play a selfish ball; that’s awesome opportunity for him to improve his game.

  • blubell

    Yup… game still not over.

  • joyce ward

    How many points does lin have?

  • Grace Nsns

    What happened to Young’s touch? If he does a little bit better than this.

  • Alaingrvis

    he is a top athlete he can play sick but he is clearly slower

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    3 to for over passing. Better if those 3 were missed shotrs

  • Grace Nsns

    7, from 3/5, 1/1 of 3pointer.

  • LAJane

    Not much time left. Let’s see if BS will let him finish garbage time or pull him before he can get dbl digits. Not really basketball. Tanking chess.

  • GoodDayLA

    The only thing that matters is his summer free agency plans. I try not to get worked up game to game from this point. We all understand the tank is real and the horrible way the lakers play is unreal.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin can’t overcome the deficit. He will finish the game.

  • blubell

    J to Ed. Chemistry is there 🙂

  • Grace Nsns

    Look like coach Miller’s prediction of 8/5 pretty real, SMH

  • GoodDayLA

    Jeremy is playing smart, just trying to stat pad and show he can play hoping some lazy gm is watching

  • blubell

    Mr. 4th quarter!

  • blubell

    another 3!!!

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin finally getting the NBA way, selfish stat pad. Bravo Lin

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin getting some!

  • LAJane

    Oopsy doopsy, Scott was sleeping on the job. Lin in dbl digits.

  • Grace Nsns

    stats padding? Great move JLin!

  • Gigi

    Finish the game strong, Jeremy!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Not selfish. Called competing!

  • GoodDayLA

    Young and Lin understand this is just time to stat pad. Lin should be stat padding from the moment he enters games for the rest of the season, if I was his inner circle, I’d tell him to score as much as possible without being obvious about it.

  • blubell

    nm… that was 2

  • Grace Nsns

    Ok, at least get some stats padding!

  • Rookie75094

    Lead down to 20 and going lower…keep on fighting Jlin!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    all i care lin gets double figure while sick

  • GoodDayLA

    I guess u are a kobe fan then

  • sws94

    He’s not playing selfish at all. He took a few shots, but he isn’t looking and calling guys off and still playing D and looking for guys.

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    And your disguised as a Lin fan?

  • Alaingrvis

    well he is clearly stat padding but selfish is name calling grow up

  • GoodDayLA

    He was passing off those looks earlier in the year, he should have been scoring this way from game 1 jacking Jumpers left and rights.

  • blubell
  • Alaingrvis

    that isn’t lin you know it by now

  • GoodDayLA

    I dont mean it in a a bad way, I am happy to see him call his own number, he was too selfless to start the year and passed off too many shots

  • Charlie Sun

    Yea I thought BS was trying to rest JLin (thus the fewer minutes). Guess I was wrong.

  • GoodDayLA

    Yeah but he is finally doing it now

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    The problem was bs play clock is the same every game

  • Rookie75094

    Yes…Jlin and the bench took the lead down to 15…. that is a win in my eyes

  • Alaingrvis

    well its hard being a pg who can score. if you pass you are passive btw as a pg this is your job. if you score you are selfish. its either or all the time

  • GoodDayLA

    Lol look at coach Scotty and Kyrie embracing laughing and hugging

  • Grace Nsns

    I’ll take it, -2 of +/-, looks much better now.

  • Alaingrvis

    i don’t think so to start the gme he will try to win. if he is still in with no chance of winning then he will score

  • blubell
  • webattorney

    Wow, this guy is a militant Lin fan. LoL.

  • Alaingrvis

    young boozer lin in vs 2nd unit with no chance of winning is an insult

  • GoodDayLA

    Some games he should come in just to score. It depends on the game and how he is guarded

  • Rick Johnson

    Why do they put Lin’s picture? Clarkson should take responsibility for the loss.

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin photo again?

  • blubell
  • Rookie75094

    With his selfish 20 points… I still think clarkson and bs are a joke and joker

  • LAJane

    If you were part of his inner circle, you’d have vastly more information than any of us have and it would all look bigger and different, so you might be saying something different than you think. Also, it’s hard to score as much as possible and no one notices that and benches you immediately. We all have lots of ideas…like we’re the only ones with ideas. Says Miss Smarty Pants.

  • GoodDayLA

    The nba should have at least removed the lakers from Sunday national showcases while tanking like this. The NBA is totally broken,

  • Brent Yen

    I did not realize this was an afternoon game…….missed it

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lakers are training to compete between starters and benchs not with another team

  • blubell

    Didn’t miss much… as usual.

  • blubell
  • Rookie75094

    That is not selfish Stat pad like clarkson…. that is scoring in the flow of the game

  • Brent Yen

    Lin seems had a good stat line….I thought maybe he played gr8

  • blubell
  • Acbc

    Lucky for you!

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin will not be traded. I can tell. Unless George Karl gets hired or Dantoni does and requests orlando or Sacramento or Denver to trade for Lin, there is 0% chance is traded. Even if mda or karl gets hired, I highly doubt Lin gets moved.

    Luckily summer is coming soon. If lins resigns in la, I would be devasted because it means I was totally wrong about him and didn’t get him at all.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Brent Yen

    Lol…that bad?

  • blubell

    He “stat padded” in the 4th when the loss was certain.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL I see,,,

  • LAJane

    No one clicks on Clarkson.

  • blubell
  • Acbc

    I just close his comments and move on. Works great

  • Rookie75094

    You just missed Jlin going to the mavs…………jk

  • blubell

    Yeah, Clarkson padding his stats throughout the game.

  • Brent Yen

    And Rondo going to LAL…I know, I know…lol

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell
  • LAJane

    Dude…sometimes you have great things to say…but why waste your energy imagining such a dopey devastation scenario. Self-regulation, man. Less is more. Serenity now, etc. We just want you to have a happy life 🙂

  • Rookie75094

    Seriously though…. you missed some Jlin bashing by some so called Lin fan…until the end of the game when Jlin turned it on and scored a bunch of points

  • Chipdip

    Actually better than I expected, given his treatment by the Tank Commander and Jeremy not well today.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lol sounds good

  • Chipdip

    Then he is the greatest Tank Commander of all time or may be except one???

  • LAJane

    LOL! We’ve got a genuine Losing HOF medalist!

  • JoeTeam

    smart hire by LAL, I guess.

  • blubell

    Unfortunately it started when Jeremy only played less than 9 minutes in the 1st half.

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Joe what do you know

    Man at this rate, I’d rather watch political debates on TV than Lakers game….

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • blubell

    haha. in a twist way, yes.

  • ViNuyork

    like this guy…true Jlin advocate :)…yep– BS is really a BS–sadists n etc–.just yoyo his players playing time…bench them for no reason..demote them without informing them n etc….no heart and respect for his players –am sure he lost d locker room…

  • Rookie75094

    And instead of bashing bs for playing Jlin only 9 minutes. ..these so called Lin fans proceed to bash Jlin instead

  • blubell

    Unfortunately, he only says this when it is regarding Kobe.
    https://twitter.com/forumbluegold/status/564563111294681088

  • JoeTeam

    well. as LAJane says, don’t waste your energy. Why entrench yourself in positions when you have no idea what promises FO or $ FO will offer Lin? we have no clue.

    That’s the prob with these sites … ppl take a position to contribute on a daily basis, and over time, the positions get entreated artificially. I mean, I’d love to see KHuang back talking about bball, but he spent a lot of energy noting DNP-CD and how it relates to Lin’s treatment as a Chinese American. When it happened, I did ack that he was right, but then it got very amplified to tie it to racial bias. JW and I think Brent tried to cool it down as I did, and now we are here not having his great posts on bball.

    Really, lots happens outside of our knowledge base, and it rolls on. Best to flex and just understand what we can daily, and just talk it up to figure out more. Nobody is going to call us and tell us what’s up, and even if they do, we won’t share it else our insider friends won’t tell us anymore.

    (BTW, the upside of these predictions are not worth it, because you would have to come on here and remind each of us of your prediction, and nobody remembers that far back here and nobody likes an “I told you so” post.)

  • Chipdip

    that is because Byron is doing a fantastic job in tanking… FO loves him.

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    He’s an eager beaver rookie. It’s a rare rookie that can resist “showing his stuff”. He’s been handed the keys to the car (or so he thinks, silly rookie) and can’t resist the vroom-vroom. It may still have the shiny muscle-car shell, but the engine is only 4-cylinder…not the best vroom-vroom.

  • MoominFloren

    I think Lin is doing well, given he’s having gastroenteritis before the game.

    I used to think the BS may want to win this, just want to prove something to his former team, but apparently not. His hate on Kidd is real lol

  • blubell
  • Arsenium12 .
  • Promo Sports World

    Let’s talk about what we saw today…the 4 or 5 man could never give jeremy any help agsinst one of the leagues point guards….the bench came into to tonight’s game way off…and Swaggy played into that big time….he is a guy who is beyond frustrated…waiting for him and bs to get into to it soon

  • Promo Sports World

    11 points in 20 horrible minutes is not bad….he is playing or a tankig team and is not imploding like Nick

  • Promo Sports World

    Byron is an embarrassment as a coach….I’ll givr fisher a pass because he is getting the most out of bad guys but Byron act is crazy

  • Promo Sports World

    You know why Byron got 3 interviews because he was negotiating money….he knew he was chosen to tank so he said if this is going to be my last coaching stop pay my behind

  • blubell

    “I could do a better job… managing Kobe’s minutes” is the best we’ll get out of BS.

  • Promo Sports World

    Finally….if the Cavs pick up another rebounding 4 who can give them some scoring in the low post—amare anyone (limited minutes) they could play Atlanta very good well….love Atlanta game

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • jolno

    Better job? BS has done as well as he possibly could in tanking. I mean, 2nd worst winning percentage all time for all coaches who have coached more than 900 games is really not easy to achieve LOL.

  • LAJane

    So I guess his point is that he’s actively trying to maximally insult his players?

  • Promo Sports World

    The only game he wanted to win… word….

  • LAJane

    Snore. This is why the reporters have to resort to interviewing coach Lin.

  • blubell

    And relaying Kobe’s message?

  • blubell
  • LAJane

    My old philosophy prof used to call it “hardening of the categories”. Also…my insider friends are keeping very mum…darn ;]

  • blubell
  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Not feeling well but still doesn’t want to disappoint the kids.

  • blubell

    Even when the kid is wearing Cav’s jersey 🙂

  • JoeTeam

    I have friends who know stuff, but I can’t post them here and anyway, what does it matter. All I can say is Lin is wanted, but the cost is very prohibitive. I’ve actually asked, and that’s the answer. What ppl have said is true, that Lin is good enough to deserver a big K, but they have not show his PG leadership so he can be worth the salary cap hits, so the next step is to get a K that gets him there. In the past 3 years, he’s proven he can stay healthy, produce consistently even with bad roles, bad coaching, bad FO, and inconsistent minutes/freezeouts. By that, I mean no more than a 2 to 3 game slump.

    Lin’s next step is business navigation, to meet the challenges of taking that salary cap hitting K but without a longstanding track record which of course he could have had by now had teams not been biased against him in favor of the ball dominant guard. Or whatever, it doesn’t matter … the challenge is there, and he’s proven other factors are not the challenge.

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Hopefully he will be wearing a JLin Cav’s jersey when he gets traded. : )

  • JoeTeam

    he he, with Byron’s winning %, the record and tank are in the bag!

  • blubell

    LAL, Kobe, and Byron breaking so many (negative) records this year. Tank is strong!

  • Rick Johnson
  • Arsenium12 .
  • JoeTeam

    When you walk down the street and see all the beautiful people who need resources to make the world better, and you judge them to be worthy, it’s v sad to know these 2 guys make lifetimes of money and they cannot muster some grace about all this. Hence, I’m a Lin fan in or out of the career situation, in or out of the public light. I guess if Lin leaves the NBA, I’d follow him and if it ever gets to celeb stuff, I’d fade too and look for another person’s story to give me hope, hope against the narrower people who can really help society but signal the wrong things.

  • rookie75094

    serenity now…. Linsanity later… lol

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    “the tank is strong with these ones” –yoda

  • 1mtoldman

    i wouldn’t give him that much credit but clearly a point guard he is not.

  • blubell

    PFV short

  • 1mtoldman

    exactly that was the only game he wanted to win the only game he left the only real decent players the lakers have (lin/davis/boozer) in to the end.

  • Grace Nsns

    some ‘post-game greeting fans event’?

  • Jedi

    Pretty sure he told Mitch that he could do a better job at losing sometime after they won a few games.

  • 1mtoldman

    yep the right man for the job. at the right time. (tanking to the top).

    clearly now after their loss in the tankathon to the only competitor orlando the lakers stand alone as the absolutely best at tanking team in the league.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah good comback game for davis after a few sloppy games. look at lin/davis/boozer stats per total minutes versus everyone else.

    got to limit those guys minutes to preserve that favorite tanking season.

  • Jedi

    BS has no vocabulary.
    He needs to go back to elementary school to learn a few more words.

  • MoominFloren

    With Davis & Kelly as well (his best friends on this team:-))

  • Acbc

    I didn’t watch. May watch on fast forward to skip all the BS. But the comments were soooo negative that I was wondering if I was on the old site. Lol.

  • blubell

    People tend to panic when Jeremy doesn’t score well in the first half…

  • Charlie Sun

    BS calls the team soft? Well they learned from the best

  • webattorney

    Probably not; therefore, not a very risky prediction. I do see some chance that Lin will re-sign with Lakers though. Would not be totally shocked if that happens.

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Davis value has appreciated a lot this year playing with Lin. Too bad BScott kept them apart much of the season.

  • Je Ballew

    The Cav’s short 55% from 2 & 3. Thanks to BS coaching Lakers don’t have a semblance of a defense.

  • joyce ward

    OK, why is Kevin Ding back in the mix. He has been quiet and all of a sudden, he is trying to toot Clarkson’s horn…

  • Dorothy

    I am wondering about the same thing.

  • Sophie Paris

    Never leave the tank!!!!

  • Acbc

    The colour commentator said at one point that the game feels like a summer league game. So true.

  • leeda harun

    is kevin ding in kobes camp?

  • Kianainhi

    Not only Ding. TWC Sportsnet been hyping Clarkson every game.

  • Acbc

    Yeah sounds like he’s been bought.

  • joyce ward

    They are trying to sell it and nobody is buying it. Nobody cares about the Lakers.

  • Kianainhi

    Clarkson ended with 20pts but 8pts was due to FT.

  • Yascar

    My take is they are drumming him up so that they can justify featuring him, then Price goes back to the line up after ASG as BS himself has said. Then they DNP CD Lin for the rest of the season. Let’s brace for it.

  • joyce ward

    I tweeted im and said as an Asian American with a voice that he could help change the narrative on lin, but he is afraid and looking out for himself.

  • Dorothy

    You are my hero.

  • JoeTeam

    Ding Ding Ding ! 🙂

  • Kianainhi

    I heard that. I love Hubie and his commentaries.

  • joyce ward

    I think Price is done. The Lakers are either trying to trade Lin, when most GM’s are saying we will wait until FGA and offer him a contract.Lakers are stuck. Ish Smith’s tweet where he said that he was coming to the Lakers was legit. So we will see what happens

  • JoeTeam

    not me, I don’t need to brace for it.

    Look at it this way, nobody gets out of Life alive. So, should we brace for it, or just know each day is precious? Me, I don’t care to predict what BSc or LAL will do, because that gives them control over me. I just surf the waves when they come. Though I don’t surf, I can surf that story pretty well by now.

  • GoodDayLA

    I think BS started the season and ruined the team. Wasn’t create or imaginative nor knew how to deal with players not named Kobe. He never manned up once and took ownership of his failures as a coach.

    But as a tanking coach, BS has gone a commendable job. He even covers himself by constantly putting down the players on his roster who won’t be here past summer like Jeremy Lin and Nick Young. It’s great.

  • GoodDayLA

    Byron apparently has inferred all season long Lin is soft as a human being and player LOL. I guess lin should be REALLY insulted then.

  • joyce ward

    I am so sick of him playing half way in and half way out. I also asked him, why hasn’t he sat down for an interview with lin to get his side. Lakers trying to sell Clarkson is not working at all and they know it. Lin is still the hot ticket item, not because of basketball, but because of the role model he represents in the NBA. The NBA/Adam Silver is not lost on that fact,.

  • JoeTeam

    NYK too, but maybe they are trying.

  • Dorothy

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!

  • Yascar

    Nice. I sometimes think we Lin fans always feel worse than Jeremy himself does. But I guess not all of us are so easily discouraged by things we can’t control.

  • joyce ward

    Lin will not be a DNP. I think Price will be traded for Ish Smith. Smith is a younger version of Price. The Laker’s dilemma with lin is that kobe feels threatened by Lin’s popularity. I think Mitch/F/O playing a cat and mouse game when it comes to kobe and lin. We will see where it all lands.

  • Sophie Paris

    They’ll beat that record no worries xD

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What coaching? There is NONE. He is infamous for tanking master. The great among greatest in his sub of his hiring tanking job.

  • JoeTeam

    Ha I love your narratives because they make sense even if over time not all of them come true. I’d say you have a good track record, though, especially when it comes to the human intelligence of what ends up being put out in the press by these not so connected/human intelligence players in the plot.

    On what’s happening here, maybe after all this time that Kobe got his feelings hurt, because he has not mentioned Lin since his benching, of any significance. He’s avoiding knocking Lin, so that may mean he feels conflicted about what has been done to Lin. Is that right from this track record, that he is more vocal when he’s not conflicted emotionally?

  • JoeTeam

    Gotta keep that which we cannot control out of controlling our lives, else it spills over to everyone around us …

  • Rzo Vlade

    horford and milshap went kaput against memphis

  • Joe what do you know

    Oh yeah. It’s a Panzer for sure

  • Kianainhi

    BS will not DNP Lin. Lakers F/O don’t want to see another negative backlash. I believe they didn’t expect the major fallout the last time.

  • Dorothy

    No, Kobe avoiding knocking Lin is because Kobe has Lin’s China influence in mind.

  • JoeTeam

    good call …

  • GoodDayLA

    Joyce, from a NBA broad perspective, there is no reason either team would trade Ish Smith for Price. I just don’t see it and I follow the entire NBA very closely. Neither team would benefit.

    What will Ronnie Price offer OKC, a team trying to break into the playoffs? We know the answer is nothing. It’s possible Price is part of a trade, but Price would not be traded for Ish straight up as the central part of such trade.

    For OKC to want to trade with the lakers, more likely HIll or Ed Davis will be the central part of it & Lin will not be involved. That is just my logic talking in closely following the NBA & sadly, my belief that few teams are interested in our guy, Jlin.

    Not trying to challenge your analysis or discount your points, just offering my perspective to add into the mix.

  • blubell

    Scott knocking Jeremy on behalf of Kobe.

  • Maknusia

    I missed the game…looks like Jeremy had a great Q4, Mr. Clutch!
    Q4= 9pts!

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin will just get 15-20 minutes per game rest of the year and go into summer free agency.

  • joyce ward

    I really believe that Kobe is a law unto himself. He doesn’t realize when he messes things up,until somebody brings it to his attention with threats. Notice how bad he treated lin, but never said anything negative about Lin, because Laker’s F/O reminded him of the Chinese following he had in Asia and in the US. He didn’t want to play with Lin, so they put Lin in the 2nd unit. They didn’t count on lin/davis/boozer making that 2nd unit one of the best in the NBA, that was talked about so much, that Laker 1st unit was not even mentioned. Kobe is a competitor. He is use to players speaking out and crying in the media when they feel like they are not getting a fair shake. Not Lin. Lin is an enigma to kobe, he doesn’t know how to take him . Laker’s know that if kobe comes back next season, they will get nobody from FA to come play with them, so Lakers are counting on draft picks, which sometimes work out and sometimes they don’t. Laker’s trying to boost Clarkson is way to give Laker fans hope for the future, because we all know that Clarkson will be dead in the water when Kobe comes backl

  • Sophie Paris

    It was the only interesting part

  • GoodDayLA

    this is exactly what is going on and Lin will go to greener pastures away from the purple and gold this summer.

  • joyce ward

    I am going by Ish Smith’s tweet, which he deleted and said that somebody hacked into twitter account. There was also a mention that Young was involved with that trade also. So we will see.

  • Maknusia

    This is not needed. Stating your view is fine, but dont get personal.

  • Maknusia

    This is not needed as well.

  • GoodDayLA

    Kevin Ding is an interesting guy. I read an article from Jeff Yang this morning in the LA TIMES. He is a Wall Street Journal TV/entertainment writer. His son plays the loud mouth kid on “Fresh off the Boat” on ABC.

    He said way back in the 90’s he was forced to write a piece on Margaret Cho’s sitcom that failed badly. He said he wrote a scathing review & Margaret was pissed at him in part because he was the lone Asian American voice with real presence that could have helped out her show.

    He said the show was just bad and he couldn’t lie.

    I wonder if Ding is cut from the same cloth – he just thinks like most mainstream media that Jeremy Lin stinks so he cannot bring himself to defend or speak out for Lin.

    Or is Ding a self hater? An Uncle “Chan” as someone here or on the other site called him. A sellout of sorts that will do whatever it takes to turn his back on his own kind to be part of the in crowd and move up in the world?

    Maybe Ding’s son will one day make it in sports and credit Lin more than we know, it would be interesting. I know Ding wrote a fluff piece about that back during Linsanity.

  • CJSHYY

    But BS said Price will play after ASG. I think he will also start since they don’t want to win… smh! I hope Lin can out of Lakers bc once he really signs the contract he will be next Young. See how bad BS to Young now.

  • joyce ward

    I believe that lin has several offers on the table going into FA already. I think Lin’s agents have put feelers out to test the waters on what lin will bring in FA. The biggest selling point for Lin this season, is that he run a 2nd unit very with efficiency if given the playing time. I would not doubt if lin/davis/bozer be snatched up together to run a 2nd unit for a contending team.

  • joyce ward

    I don’t believe anything that comes out of Scott’s mouth

  • GoodDayLA

    Yeah I know that tweet was probably legit. Ish did that I believe a while back in Houston during preseason too right? Was it last season he prematurely tweeted at Morey? It was some backup PG that did it.

    Young might be involved but I can’t see him going to OKC because Waiters is there. but maybe in a 3 team, Young can go somewhere else.

    It seems Young and Lin are both scapegoats for Scott. And being that he is so rude in his comments to the media towards both of them, it’s almost as if he is doing all he can to make them go somewhere else or ask for trades asap away from this team. I don’t expect either Lin or Young to last too much longer with this team after the season.

  • GoodDayLA

    Lin is just going to be a 10-20 minutes off the bench guy till the season is over. It is what it is.

  • chan c

    i missed it too. i wonder if he finished the game this time…

  • GoodDayLA

    I dont think they are willing to deal Ed Davis. I think they see his potential. But if they do, great!

    I mean that would be hilarious to have those guys go somewhere as an instant bench by trade.

    Atlanta could use a bench like that to keep them running hot. Or Toronto. I’d like to see that. Portland would too. We can hope right?

    The Lakers really messed up the Lin thing. He could have been part of the new post Kobe build where teamball reigns. Instead, they lack vision and are going to be dinausaurs like Dolan’s Knicks soon.

  • GoodDayLA

    I like Clarkson’s game. He’s just a rook finding his way. I can’t hate on any of the Lakers roster except for Kobe himself. Total douche. Other than that, every guy is jjust trying to stick in the NBA and keep in the league.

  • CJSHYY

    He did but it’s garbage time bc Scott made sure Lakers would loss this game by the end of 3Q.

  • joyce ward

    The thing with Lin/Young was that the Laker fans was on board with them after their Laker access video that went viral, and the fans calling them Rush Hour 4. Then there as the game that lin/young were the heroes.That is where the Lakers were going with this until Kobe shut it down

  • JoeTeam

    That’s so funny, the 2nd unit getting let out of the doghouse. You can’t keep good people down.

    Yes, good point on JC with Kobe mix – no way JC will match Kobe play so he’s a goner or at least he will be very dissatisfied deferring to Kobe after this free run and PR. So silly they didn’t promote JLin knowing Lin would bolt, so might as well get ratings up for the negotiations ahead on local adv revs.

    Ah well, to me Kobe is in the past. I will not watch Kobe play unless Lin is on the court because why spend any time watching a guy who is objectively so bad? I mean, i haven’t even had a chance to watch AD, Whiteside, KL’s return, Timmy and SAS, etc.

  • joyce ward

    I don’t buy it. I think Lin will continue to get 20+ minutes. I think that DNP was ramifications across the board to Scott. I don’t believe that Price will even play after ASG. I think that was Scott saying making up crap to explain Scott’s demotion

  • JoeTeam

    What’s the biggest K a 2nd unit leader gets? What a potent team that can be – a clear 2nd unit with Lin at the help, and team play on the starting team. That can be such a dynasty … naaasteee!

  • GoodDayLA

    Well it’s 100% on Laker’s management for whatever has transpired. Not the crappy coach, players, Kobe or anyone else.

    The Front Office acts like it’s powerless to deal with Kobe. The Front Office wants its cake and eat it too and because of that, everything has fallen apart.

    I don’t see the Lakers digging out of the hole any time soon. Your 5 yr window looks about right as long as they continue to cater to Kobe, who will barely be able to walk next season after 15 games.

  • JoeTeam

    pretty hard for anyone to be an Uncle Tom now because the facts are pretty much in. It’s the dollars … if you cannot fathom the guy’s rationale, follow his dollars. He’s not confused … there’s enough facts out there on JLin.

  • joyce ward

    ED Davis is saying all the right things in the press about wanting to stay with the Lakers, but if a team offers him more money and playing time, I think he will bolt.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    5 years only if KB retires at the end of his contract. If he stays for longer, I would say at least 10 years. Don’t care about Lakers once JLin leaves.

  • joyce ward

    After lin and other leaves, Nobody from FA will sign with them. If they sign Rondo, then I know that have hit rock bottom

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Of course, any decent player will. Who wants to play with aging egomaniac superstar and pathetic BS if there is a choice.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL They will be good for Lakers. They reap what they sow. Can’t wait to see the day!

  • Maknusia

    The only Q that LAL beat Cav was Q4…thats the Quarter that Lin played the full minutes!

  • CJSHYY

    I think so… In fact, BS was hoping Lin would not play today but since Lin wanted to play so… that’s why Boozer didn’t play in 2nd half bc BS wanted to loss the game.

  • grover chang

    Even afterwards Margaret cho regret letting the network taking over her show and running it like a regular network show instead of something more groundbreaking. I never heard of Eddie Huang before but he seems pretty outspoken about his displeasure of the direction of FOB. I saw the first episode and thought it was okay but when I did laugh I wasn’t sure if non Asian Americans would find it as funny.

  • GoodDayLA

    nothing you wrote in the 2nd paragraph makes any sense to me. First, Kobe is coming back to play scoring PG, Mark Jackson style. The LA media has already said this if you were listening. Jordan is playing SG and combo guard when Kobe goes into complete ball hog mode. They expect JC to switch hats as KOBE sees fit when Kobe changes moods.

    JC will NOT BE Dissatified. He is a 2nd round rookie who can be cut any time. He will do whatever he has to & stick in the league. He is a young 2nd yr guy awed by Kobe, whom he grew up idolizing.

    Why is it silly they promote Jlin knowing he would bolt? What is silly about that? It’s only silly if you think Lin is the next coming of Allen Iverson of Isiah Thomas or Jordan and they dont view Lin as more than a backup PG. Lin doesn’t sell enough tickets to Taiwan fan tours to make a difference. Games sell out regardless. So why is it silly?

    Get WHAT negotiation on local ad rev? What the heck are you talking about? The TWC deal is LOCKED IN FOR YEARS. TWC TV sales teams have to get ad revenues up, not the Lakers. And it’s already up. I see tons of TV ads during timeouts, no issue there my friend.

    The Lakers only have to worry about some staples center advertising and how much does AEG or Staples get a cut of that too?

    Yeah to you Kobe sucks and is past news. You don’t even go to Lakers games. Go to the Staples center. Its’ 90% Kobe jerseys and Kobe believers. And you wonder why the Lakers have doubled down on him?

    His Kobe X just came out and I see every kid under 30 wearing these $200 shoes like its nothing. Why would Nike, Kobe, ESPN, NBA, Lakers give this up? For Lin jsut because you and I like him?

  • David Kim

    I think Lakers is trying to trade Hill and Lin for draft picks before trade deadline.

    Lin :showcasing until trade deadline. Thats why Scott will not let Price play until all star break.
    hill: showcasing not needed because he showed and played enough.

  • GoodDayLA

    Oh yeah I’m sure Ed will bolt. I just dont see the Lakers trading him short of a 1st round pick or some real talent in return.

  • CJSHYY

    I agree w you on Lin will get his min bc Lakers wants to sign Lin but I think he will let Price to come back bc he also hopes Lakers can keep Price.

  • joyce ward

    I don’t like Clarkson as player, because he is the type that bites the hand that feeds you. He has no sense of responsibility or control. Is that for the coach to develop, yeah maybe, but these should be things taught to you growing up. So I don’t want to hear that Clarkson, he is just a rookie bs, because I have watched Andrew Wiggins, and Marcus Smart games, they don’t play like Clarkson. They play within the context of the gamef or the teamm

  • grover chang

    How does BS look at himself in the mirror? This was a ABC showcase came on network TV. Every home in America had an opportunity to watch this game and he still made it trash. He did not even make it competitive. All you need to know was Lin and the bench got it to 3 point deficit, then sat rest of the first half and didn’t come in until the fourth until the deficit was 25 points. I think even the Cleveland fans were falling asleep.

  • CJSHYY

    I think Hill is but not Lin… but right now neither.

  • GoodDayLA

    I honestly did not comprehend what you just wrote. First of all, its possible for anyone to be an Uncle Tom or Uncle Chan in this day and age. What facts do you refer to? I’m lost.

    What’s in the dollars? I’m sorry you’ve honestly completely lost me. Can someone who understands explain what JoeTeam is trying to tell me?

  • JC

    I continue to follow Lin is because of his character. There are many NBA players who are more talented in bball than Lin, but I wont even care if they just walk pass by me on the street. Saying that, I do not doubt lin’s bball skill at all though.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s his plan for not play 2nd unit too much bc he wanted to loss the game. smh!

  • GoodDayLA

    Honestly, from the previews, I think the show looks lame. I get why Eddie is pissed. He wants the show to be raw & more authentic. Maybe he needed netflix or amazon or something like that to produce his show.

    I mean you already have a Korean dad and Chinese mom for a Chinese son. The casting alone is kind of off. Dad speaks English without an accent but some weird whiny pitch, mom does the fake Asian accent.
    It’s already broken from that alone.

    Still I hope the show succeeds. Asian Americans need to break through.

  • GoodDayLA

    I agree there is a chance of this. Fat chance any team pull the trigger on Lin though.

  • Briiick

    BS—the soft tanker.

  • joyce ward
  • GoodDayLA

    LOL!!

  • David Kim

    I have a question. If a team trying to trade a player for draft pick, does the team still have to match salary and take back a player?

  • kittyhead

    Actually Lakers can’t trade Hill without his approval. And now he is injured; I’m not sure if any team will trade picks for him. But I agree Lakers are showcasing Lin in those 20 mins because they know Lin wont stay and try to trade him for something.

  • joyce ward

    Lin is not going anywhere. His contract is too high. Most teams no know that he is a FA this summer, and they will wait to sign him. You best to be looking at the 1st unit. I think they all are trade bait….jmo

  • GoodDayLA

    I dont think Clarkson has the PG instincts and his handle in tight spaces is subpar for the NBA (that’s why he gets stripped a lot). But Clakrson would make a nice 2 guard. He’s a better version of Austin Rivers, which isn’t saying much I know.

  • MoominFloren

    Exactly. I think he well understands what a big man wants – a good pnr, a willing to pass PG. Not Kobe, not Price, not Clarkson. I hope he will follow Lin in future.

  • joyce ward

    Ain’t nobody going to bite for that. They can wait until Lin becomes a FA this summer. Lakers are stupid if they are wating for that to happen. They are dumber than I thought they were…smh

  • GoodDayLA

    well like today he got 21 min. So we’re not disagreeing. I’m just saying Lin is going to get like 12-30 minutes any given game.

  • joyce ward

    I agree…LOL

  • Acbc

    May the farce be with you Scottie

  • joyce ward

  • David Kim

    I agree that Lin not going anywhere. There is very very slight chance that lin will get traded but LAkers at least can try. Who knows if there is any team that will give 2nd round pick for Lin. A team can use lin just for playoff who lost their
    starting PG.

  • CJSHYY

    See… Now it’s all Young’s fault just like Lin before…

  • GoodDayLA

    why would Lin, an inconsistent backup PG, replace a starting PG? The team that lost its starting PG has a backup they can use just as easily. See DJ Augustine.

    Now I dont view Lin an an inconsistent backup but Scott sure has hammered that home to all of LA.

    dont know if vaughn was fired for not trying hard to tank. ?

  • 1mtoldman

    the more interesting stat to me is harden: his 45 points come on 25 fga’s and 23 free throw attemtps. blazers announcers openly contemptuous of harden “draw foul first” flopping.

    board commenters referring to the houston team as the “hardens”. as really the rest of players on the floor largely irrelevant.

    one man show. and lose by 11.

  • MoominFloren

    But used Lin’s photo to tweet every lost!!!

  • Yascar

    They hyped him so much last season because they hated Lin. Bev never was and never will be a better player, hyped defense and all. All I can say is what goes around comes around.

  • Acbc

  • 1mtoldman

    think of all the players that get hyped because of abl rules. what becomes of them when no lin there?

    clarkson will suffer same fate.

  • Yascar

    I actually think clarkson has a bit more upside. In any case, he’s very very lucky to get this much opportunity in his rookie year. Hope he becomes a solid player and doesn’t blow it.

  • GoodDayLA

    what does Bev matter? Lin was supposed to be the man on that team. It was never can Lin be a better Derek Fisher to Harden.

  • Briiick

    Morey wants to justify his $80M bet in Harden more than anything else.

  • Rick Johnson

    Scott is going to repel all the free agents

  • Charlie Sun

    So Portland, led by Lillard, slays Houston again. Bev was a non factor again. Must suck to not have JLin as the scapegoat hehe

  • GoodDayLA

    CNM is not a real Lin fan. I think he’s just tryign to make money.

    A
    REAL NBA fan would understand Lin was going to be the star guard of
    that team. He got supplanted by Harden. It proves Houston never had
    faith in Lin to begin with and he was signed as a marketing tool only.

    So the real discussion is Lin vs. Harden.

    Only really small minded Lin fans get caught up in this PB vs. Lin or PB vs. Tony Douglas or Lin vs. Clakrson debate.

    I don’t follow Lin to watch him be a role playing bench warmer or supporting role playing starter. Maybe some of you do.

    Otherwise, it makes no sense to accept the rationalization that Lin should be compared to PB or Price etc.

    It’s
    always Lin vs. Harden and Lin vs. Kobe. Because we see Lin as a legit
    guard able to take the weight of the team on his shoulders.

  • Acbc

    Not so easy when you don’t have the backing of the FO, coach and “star”. We all knew this was coming. AC Law, Felton, Bev, Price and Jordan Clarkson were all used to sell the agenda that LIN is worst than ______ (fill in with any d league levels player). It’s been a conspiracy to erase the memory of linsanity like it was some fluke. The funny thing is that their is a price to pay with Khama. Harden will be like Melo, Kobe soon. They are lions without a pride because no one wants to play with them.

  • GoodDayLA

    I edited my comment. It’s my way to acknowledge it was wrong to post that. I just dont agree with Paul who believes that Lin cannot hold a candle to Harden.

    Harden is Morey’s “fool’s gold” and can NOT be criticized for a loss by media directly or indirectly controlled by Rox, who is similar to Kobe after PJ left LAL. Someone has to be thrown under the bus, not even DH12 was immune from it.

    I mean no way ding is an Uncle Tom, pandering to ‘the man’. Follow the money, said Wily Loman. I mean the facts on Lin are in, and any rational person can see Lin transcends his race. If Ding is somehow doing Lin an injustice, it’s for his own economic reasons. It’s not because he cannot see the facts nor is likely he’s unconsciously selling his race short. There’s probably some incentive that we cannot see clearly.

    lol, someone just bumped up that legendary “The numbers are clear: Patrick Beverley deserves to start over Jeremy Lin” thread from fat Clutch, and here are some new comments:
    “JLin has better numbers than Pabrick Beverly. One is riding the bench, the other riding Harden.”
    “We need a point guard to handle the ball. We should trade for Lin.”
    “Major offensive liability and yeah, not really showing effectiveness on defense as much.”
    “Let’s be honest. Lin’s last season here wasn’t anywhere as horrific as what Bev’s been this season. (I’m not even a Lin fan.)”
    “I would rather Lin handling the ball.”
    priceless..

  • Briiick

    And these spoiled actors can’t play with any talented player either for fear of exposure.

  • JoeTeam

    Even if he does, he puts the time in, does his best, and if ppl want to listen to him he should make some $ out of it to support his work. You decide if he should make money by using ad blockers or not, or not watching or watching. It’s ad supported content, so PFV has every right to exist like Steven A Smith. JMO … I happen to like PFV because he tries to be fair. I don’t agree all the time, but I don’t want to have a youtube comment account because for the most part, it’s not a good place for discussions so I disagree with PFV here if I do, which has been once.

    When I saw this tweet at least 6 hrs ago, I understand this was what exactly BS did to Cavs. So, his record says it all. Lakers hires him to pamper KB and tank.

  • FrankW

    25fga to get 26 points without the free throws.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    For this, I’m being comfort that not only JLin sees the antics of KB and BS, but also media people. Just that for whatever reasons, people didn’t want to be the “bad” guy. If media people see it, then GM and coaches know it. So, JLin is in good shape.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    It’s no longer about BS the coach but it would rather be the GM and FO. Are they gonna put a stop on this madness?

Once Howard leaves in another year, he may finally realize that he could have had a real contender last year if he had treated Asik and LIN better.

    Addition to what Joyce said, the Staples crowd (from what I see on screen) really roots/cheer for Lin and Young. They are the crowd favorites.

  • Kianainhi

    Do players really know ahead of time what team they are being traded to? Lin knew nothing of being traded to the Lakers until it became “official”.

  • Kianainhi

    That infuriated me & tweeted them about it. The starters lost the game.

  • Chipdip

    I definitely hate the Lakers offense.

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! This is from CF?! LOL! I know Mc is not as high on PB as last season. He didn’t play 4Q most of the time.

  • David Kim

    who said it?

    If you feel, he his the understanding wrong, then state what is your understanding/definition… rather than “you need to dbl…” its just doesnt show a friendly debate here

    no highlights yet?

    We know. Trade is unlikely. So FA is the only way. Hope many contender teams that really want JLin to help of their teams.

  • bolero

    what happened to his son, ‘junkyard dog” lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Haven’t seen one.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Obviously from Cavs press people.

  • Acbc

    It’s becoming clear to me that the whole NBA is a mess. I don’t even watch games anymore becasue Only 1/4 of them matter. I taped the game today and watched it in fast forward and wasted 10 minutes instead of 125. There’s maybe 12 teams vying for a title while the rest are just tanking or thinking of it. Then there is constant reminder of the greed and selfishness in almost every team except for Spurs and Atlanta. Raptors are okay as well. It’s like pro wrestling! Maybe LIN is coming to the same conclusion, who knows. Yeah, I’ll stay a healthy distance to keep my sanity. Like you, I’ll continue to follow LIN as he traverses through the darkness and beyond. I’m more a fan of LIN the man than a basketball player.

  • Acbc

    The real Lakers offence is pretending that they are a real team.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    For some reason I enjoyed reading this… I thought they were happy to have Jason Terry to mentor Patrick Beverley? 🙂

  • joyce ward
  • Rookie75094

    The numbers are cleared. ..cf is in meltdown comparable to 3 miles island…hahaha

  • IsabeliJane*17

    No highlights yet?

    I hope our resident “highlighters” come up with some videos (jay, christinecheng, footwearfoot). I missed this game because it’s too early for my timezone, and J played through gastroenteritis. I hope his gastro is just a momentary sickness; I have a close friend whose gastro went severe and it wasn’t pretty.

  • John Lee

    Karma bites…just a matter of when.

  • Brent Yen

    I am waiting too…..even in my time zone, I still missed it somehow…

  • Arsenium12 .

    Here are some team highlights. If you start at about the 4 min 50 sec point (beginning of 4th quarter) you’ll see Jeremy’s highlights.

    See : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ki7D9sfGOMY

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I know. We have poster here who shouldn’t be here in the first place. Everything that the poster says is hot air.

  • joyce ward

    I am so glad that we only have maybe a couple of months before lin gets off this roller coaster ride better known as LA Lakers. I cannot wait for us to call it warp with this bogus team.

  • Linja

    Must see at 1:38 clip ! 6.2 sec. left in 1st Q.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yeah. From 97% of the posts here seems like he had a good 2nd half despite the gastro.

  • Brent Yen

    Totally….

  • joyce ward

    What is up with Nick Young lately? Laker media claimed that he didn’t feel well, which is news for a lot fans after the game.

  • Brent Yen

    He is just allergic to BS….

  • CJSHYY

    Begin another DNP ? BS is really not nice to Young lately.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’m just basing on the highlights:

    1. Cleveland FC is bad, with the exception of Mozgov
    2. Lebron looks slower
    3. Despite the gastro, Jeremy played FREAKIN’ GOOD on offense.

  • Kianainhi

    Per BS, NY wasn’t feeling well the past 2 days.

  • joyce ward

    I think so too . He seems very unhappy right now. That tweet that Ish Smith put out and stated that somebody had hacked into his account had Young s name mentioned as a possible trade.

  • joyce ward

    Really, do you believe that? Should that not have been reported? They reported Lin’s gastroenteritis.

  • Maknusia

    Yeah, he had mentioned during the interview…that he need ti put all the negativity aside and concentrate on his game

  • CJSHYY

    Really? Young? Wow!

  • joyce ward

    He needs to figure out a way to channel i. They talk about lin being weak. Look at what lin has gone through and he still comes out and plays a good game. too many double standards…smh

  • joyce ward

    Yep. They mentioned Young and a pick to OKC.

  • joyce ward

    LBJ injuries catching up with him. I agree lin played solid tonight. I did my rant and rave about his game, but he must have heard me and he pulled it together in the 4th Qtr…LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t believe what BS said… sounds like maybe another DNP for Young soon…? smh! This coach just so weird.

  • CJSHYY

    No wonder BS started the bad comments on Young now?! But I thought they just signed him 4 years?!

  • joyce ward

    He is just covering for Young for his poor performance of late. Scott can’t explain away that Tech that Young got called for.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Can’t say much on defense since they are not included in the video but I’ll take his solid offense in this game.

  • joyce ward

    I believe everybody on the Laker’s team is trade bait, yes even Kobe, but they know that nobody will take kobe…LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Did Hubbie said anything about Lin during the game? both good and bad?

  • joyce ward

    Lin trying to fight through screens for Irving. I think tonight he was not up for it because he was not feeling well.

  • CJSHYY

    It’s weird.. from the highlight, he didn’t talk about Lin at all only the other guy… I thought he used to like Lin a lot…

  • Brent Yen

    I am not sure if he likes Lin or not. But at least he will say something that makes sense..

  • Kianainhi

    Either Trudell or Medina tweeted it before the game. NY had a cold.

  • CJSHYY

    He did in the past but since Lin traded to Lakers… lots of NY media don’t talk about Lin now…

  • joyce ward

    My take is that many of the commentators are not on board with a tanking team. Barkley even said that it is hard to say anything positive when you know a team is tanking purposely.

  • Brent Yen

    PPL just crave for fanciness over substance…I did not watch the game tho…But I would assume Irving did not own Lin one on one…

  • joyce ward

    Didn’t see that.

  • CJSHYY

    But he talked nice thing about Clarkson …Anyway, in 4Q it’s garbage time so no need to say too much… but at least the other guy did mention about Lin when he got the points.

  • Keith

    He did talk bit about Linsanity .

  • CJSHYY

    Really? I didn’t see it. Anyway, if so why they asked him to play since BS wants to have someone DNP so he can let his beloved Price on court?

  • Brent Yen

    Play by play guy has to…it is about what color commentator says I guess

  • CJSHYY

    But Hubbie just didn’t talk or mention about Lin at all.. you can check the highlight….

  • joyce ward

    No he didn’t.

  • CJSHYY

    From highlight? I didn’t see it?!

  • Keith

    I did not see the highlight, but i saw the whole game

  • Brent Yen

    It is fine. I am just curious…Not really an important thing

  • CJSHYY

    Oh! I didn’t watch the whole game. But thanks that do make me feel better then. 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    I didn’t watch the whole game but someone said he did mention about Linsanity. 🙂

  • Kianainhi

    If NY is traded, it will be interesting if Iggy moves with him or stays in LA. At least, Young was hitting some of his shots. It wasn’t a 0 game for him tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    Iggy probably is 10x more busy than NY is….So…if NY leaves…….

  • Keith

    Yeah.. Hubie was saying something like Lin had great game against Lakers when he was in New York. He also mentioned Lin lead the Knicks beat Mavs, Cavs…etc..Mike Tirico said he was in New York during that time too.

  • Kianainhi

    I remember thinking..ok 2 Lakers not feeling completely healthy so wasn’t surprised when BS said it post game.

  • CJSHYY

    Really? Good. I hope he can back to NY. 🙂 Only NY really likes or trust him. So upset w Lakers. Buss family just don’t have guts to say NO to Kobe… if Lin really stays w Lakers… they are probably going to tank for a while… that’s really bad for Lin w Kobe & BS in the team.

  • Kianainhi

    It may have been Trudell reporting it courtside to the TWC guys before the game.

  • CJSHYY

    I see. But don’t you think BS is not nice to Young now?

  • joyce ward

    no she will stay in LA, and if they want to make it work, they will. I look at Keri Hilson(who is a R & B singer)and Serge Ibaka make it work.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think he and Iggy are already living together. Imo, something tells me his current struggles have nothing to do with his personal life.

  • Acbc

    He mention about the LIN magical night against Lakers in NYC in passing as well as how the game was like a summer league game.

  • Kianainhi

    BS is not nice to NY now especially to the media. But in some ways, BS was sarcastic about Nick from training camp.

  • Keith

    Lakers are using Nick Young for Lakers drama . I saw alot of fans bashing Nick Young now .

  • Kianainhi

    It works for some couples but not for others. Hopefully, it works out for them. Keri & Ibaka are still together? I read about them awhile back.

  • Keith

    Sad, feel bad for Jeremy Lin & other Lakers.

    Sportige: Jeremy Lin Shoved Aside As Lakers Are Tanking for the Future

    http://www.asamnews.com/2015/02/07/sportige-jeremy-lin-shoved-aside-as-lakers-are-tanking-for-the-future/

  • Kianainhi

    Didn’t NYK commentators say why do the Lakers have their best players on the bench which means they are tanking. Everybody is catching on. On LG during the Orlando game thread, majority of posters saying the team is tanking.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Another CNY greetings.

  • CJSHYY

    Everyone in the league knows Lakers is tanking…..

  • linspiredinla

    Lin didn’t even finish his sentence. It was cut short.

  • joyce ward
  • Kianainhi

    I’m happy that non-Lakers Media reporting this.

  • dolphin2k2

    Not sure why everyone is so keen on Lin going under GK, BS once said that he was a Lin fan and look what happened.

  • Maknusia

    Greg (Sportige) always been a Lin supporter from day one 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    I agree… I really think no need to take what he said for that interview or .. so seriously… sometimes just PR. Besides that was about 2 years ago not now.. smh!

  • Kianainhi

    I hope not. Wishing Nick to get out of his shooting slump.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • CJSHYY

    I really think what BS do to Young just like what he did to Lin in the past …. This coach is really sick person. smh! I guess sure bc Young did or said something to make Kobe unhappy… BS is just doing the dirty job for Kobe.

  • grover chang

    Also when the second unit was out, hubie said this group should get some easy shots and something like he looking forward to see what they could do. (He was probably thinking this game is so boring, at least lakers put five guys out there now that know how to play basketball at a professional level).

  • grover chang

    Yeah hubie seems nice. He is quick to point out what a player does well and rarely says something ugly about a guy.

  • grover chang

    They bought Selena Gomes former house together. Don’t ask me how I know that.

  • Kianainhi

    Thanks for posting. The tag game was funny.

  • Grace Nsns

    BS said “I like Lin, I really do.” Someone once analized that “really”, I shared the feeling that BS’ not sincere by saying that. One’s selection of words shows the line of thinking.

  • grover chang

    CF is a true cesspool. Never satisfied. The rockets are having one of their best season p under morey and are stacked with new free agents. I think these guys just like to have something to pick at.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Welcome. Didn’t finish watching the whole vid as we know what happened in Spurs game. So I quit watching soon after shootaround:-)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Understand where you come from. Yeah all of us become quite skeptical after BS. Believe somehow somewhere JLin needs to land a team with. Just hope that in FA those “teamball” teams will make offer to JLin so that he can choice the right team for him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    You are right. Supposed to be introd but they didn’t come back to him after that introd just like the other version.

  • Tey Ling

    Ya no point watching further, BS & FO putting a show to compensate for the ridiculous losses thus far.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Wish there is less BS’ face in this vid.

  • Tey Ling

    At least JLin is the Starter ….. Ha ha

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Have been rewatching lots of Linsanity days highlights, interviews (both D’Antoni and JLin), news…. in the past few days. Literally days and nights as compared what JLin is getting this day. Really enjoy D’Antoni’s interview. Unlike M and BS, he really knew what he talked about and didn’t throw players under the bus. Appreciate him even more after witnessing the repulsive behavior of M and esp BS.

  • Tey Ling

    To lift my mood the remedy is watching JLin’s – Knicks highlights. Thank God for youtube!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I rewatched all these to take my mind off from my own health concerns:-) Last week or so went thru so many medical/health issues appointments–almost everyday. As my next surgery is looming around the corner, the “dread/dislike” of going thru another anasthetics is just quite overwhelming at times. The best way to take my mind off is watching JLin’s youtubes and others:-)

  • steven ko

    She’s too “fancy” for him…

  • JoeTeam

    Linsanity happened for me at a tough time and watching the whole game really lifted my spirits. Over and over …oso I get what you mean. Take care, I’ll pay for you.

  • Maknusia

    But Charmin had always been rated but than Scott…so?!!! lol just couldnt resist

  • sport

    Just looked at the stats, Lin has been shooting very well lately too bad he doesn’t get more minutes. He would have more than 20 points if he had Clarkson’s 14 shot attempts instead of 9.

  • Maknusia

    liao anton – 2:42min

  • 1mtoldman

    was reading some interesting comments on lin thread elsewhere by lakers fans primarily it would seem not lin fans debating lin and young; the agreed upon point i would like to repeat here is–

    you can’t evaluate anyone on lakers based on this years performance with a terrible coach and a team that is trying to lose. (and a coach who it seems was hired for his ability to facilitate that prospect)

    that being said: yes since his dnp/cd lin has responded with what he was given in a relatively positive way more quickly than he did to his previous benching in place of the head of the snake.

    or put another way he has responded to being replaced by jordan clarkson more quickly relatively favorably than when being replaced by ronnie price.

    think of all the nba players who should be greatful to lin for getting their

    (it will be brief as witness “the wolverine” in houston’s current plight being strung up by fans of the “houston hardens”–

    after harden took 48 shots, 23 fts and 25 fgas, in their loss to whoever last nite some yahoo board commentor called them that, the houston hardens–anyway to continue largely divided now thought)

    moment of fame and or at least opportunity via the “abl” rules. .

    some think clarkson will be an exception to the rule but i see no evidence to suggest that much less that he is (a repeated theme now by embedded lakers writers) “the future” at point guard there.

    primarily because there is no statistical or visual evidence to suggest he is a point guard at all.

    point guards have assists. clarkson does not. (the only point guard in the nba with significant minutes this season with less than 2 assists per game).

    perhaps as someone here suggested at best a future back up shooting guard, even that i see unlikely, he doesn’t shoot well. just often.

    (evidently learned from watching kobe and young i would say except he was already doing the same thing in pre-season so appears to be a natural at it).

  • 1mtoldman

    its less that people thing gk is a lin fan more just that gk’s teams play a different style of basketball that would be more in lin with lin’s ability and approach to the game.

    that being said it seems unclear why gk would want to go to sacramento if the reports are true that it is cousins agents who are blocking the deal.

    maybe hes just using this to get leverage to get the orlando job instead?

  • 1mtoldman

    so like the huangs saying “love you”. ?

  • 1mtoldman

    its hard to play in this tank town.

    Is it just me? Since the Orland Magic pregame thread I don’t see any thread after that one in the front page. I only got here by the link that @psalm234:disqus posted in that thread which leading to another link to get here.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Personally, I wasn’t too convinced by “I like Lin, I really do.” statement. It’s too general. Still I gave the person who said it a chance to prove what he said. Turned out I was so disappointed.

    However, the other statement, “I still think he’s the motor of their team, and when he plays well, they have a good chance of beating people. …” somehow tells me whoever said it must have been watching Jeremy’s game somewhat closely. I will give that person who said it a clean slate to prove his thought about Jeremy’s game and how he’ll use it on actual games.

    A Series of Unfortunate Lakers Events- Part 3 – A Culture of Everybody-Knows-Except-You

    After a heart-wrenching OT loss to Magic – another team that is struggling to find its magic to win and finally snap a 10 games losing streak with its HC fired – a bunch of players gathering, talking about team’s mid-season situation:

    JC: Damn, we could have won it. Last game against Bucks too. We could have won these 2 road games. Only if I didn’t miss that last layup in OT.
    RK: Only if you didn’t shoot too much.
    JC: What did you mean?
    WE: Take it easy. It is only a game.
    JC: But I wanted to carry this team to win, now that Kobe is done.
    NY: Wait, wait, wait. That’s my line. Take a number and sit, rookie.
    JC: I wanted to step up, now that no one in this team can.
    JH: Kid, you are the delusional one. Everyone knows except you.
    JC: Know what ???
    RP: Give the kid a break. He still got a lot to learn, not just basketball.
    RK: Look who is talking? Head of the snake!
    WE: It is more like tail of the snake nowadays.
    RP: Now give me a break. I just wanted to feed my family. I know my places.
    CB: As in tank’s tail light?
    WE: Why would a tank need a tail light?
    CB: Stupid, this tank is for practice target. They need the light to know where we are.
    WE: Oh, right. I forgot.
    RK: Well, we all know who is the commander.
    CB: And the gun man, now that the gun man is taking a long hibernate sleep.
    JC: No, you are all wrong. I believe in our coach. Our GM said our coach is to establish and maintain a culture to win.
    RK: Excuse me, our GM didn’t exactly say a culture to win. He implied a culture to everybody-knows-except-you.
    CB: Kid, you are so naive. Our GM also said “A top-five pick is always a good thing.”
    JC: But but …
    NY: I will be the gun man.
    WE: Yea right, an aimless gun man.
    CB: Doesn’t matter. Too bad the commander has a hard grasp on the control knot to the engine. No matter how fast the engine coulld be. No matter how good the tank is.
    JC: Engine? What engine?
    RK: The best payer in this team, rookie. The guy that got DNP against Spurs.
    JC: Oh, him?
    RK: Yea, still having post game interviews. The media just couldn’t let him go.
    CB: You know, this tank is a good tank. Even though the parts are not that great, but pieced together, it could actually win some wars, you know with the crazy engine.

    A janitor cleaning the locker room couldn’t help but overheard and bravely cut in: “I admire your coach’s strategy. It is a ingenious move to keep your so called starters in 4Q and OT. Bravo, bravo! Now our team could sleep well with snapping a10 games losing streak.”

    CB: No argument here. We are a team with established culture.
    WE: Well, at least we outdid that to you, and the Knicks. 76ers is next.
    JC: When is the game against 76ers? Couldn’t wait to drop 30 on them.
    WE: Dream on. You might get DNP by then.
    CB: Don’t worry. Our commander will be in full control. This is the culture of inconsistent roles, inconsistent PT, inconsistent strategies, no 3 pointers, no time-out in less than a minute in a close game, outdated Anti-Harvard offense, hard drilling practice to make every game like a B2B, find millions ways to lose a game, and most importantly – cross the arms and be cool and ignore all the criticism, with big talks emphasizing on soft, soft and ultra soft. That’s the art of “everybody-knows-except-you.”

    All players except JC: Yes, a culture of “everybody-knows-except-you”.

  • CJSHYY

    Do you know the rating for the show? I hope it will be hot too.

  • JW

    I thought they tried too hard with the stereotype jokes. I thought it was OK. I’ll watch a few more episodes. Hopefully it picks up a bit.

    Kinda remind me of the Wonder Years with the narration from that kid’s POV, but Wonder Years seemed to more natural. This one might be a bit forced.

    Heard there is a bit of anger with the stereotype from asian community, with the mom being cheap and stuff.

  • JW

    Swaggy was always promoted to come off the bench. Lin was told he will be a bigger part of the team.

  • Brent Yen

    That is true…I guess you just can not please everyone. I rather they force a bit tho…otherwise it would be just like other shows…

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/tv-ratings-fresh-boat-starts-770490

    Promising midseason launch news seems rare, but ABC’s Wednesday samplings of Fresh Off the Boatproved fruitful. Airing at 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., two new episodes of the comedy fetched respective 2.5 and 2.4 ratings in the key demo. The show fared especially well in its first slot, growing three-tenths of a point from its Middle lead-in (2.2 adults). The show was down half of a point from Modern Family (3.4 adults) but up from Black-ish’s recent performances in the time slot. Fresh Off the Boat now faces the unfortunate challenge of moving to is regular Tuesday time slot — which hasn’t been particularly kind on comedy.

    Is this another ‘Must-Lose’ game as both Lakers (12-38) and Nuggets (19-32) are contending to tank?

    The difference might be DEN players are ones who want to tank while Coach Brian Shaw tried to save his job.

  • yeah, BoringTankGate LOL

    I think the longest TV drama with 13 episodes was Vanishing
    Son starring Russell Wong and Wago Chang way, way back in the mid 90’s.

    there were actually multiple headlines on line recently with shaw saying just that: brian shaw afraid players tanking without him.

    yep they lost the tank bowl (tankathon) to orlando the previously last. orlando trying to make it up tho by losing an easily won game against chicago i think last game.

    scott will have to be at his best tank commander status to insure that steady climb ever downward to upward to ping pong balls.

    BS never said he was a fan. When asked directly, He said “I like Lin, I really do” almost as if to convince himself.

    Now KARL, he without being asked mentioned Jlin’s contributions to Houston’s team. ON HIS OWN.

    If you cannot see the difference or just dont follow closely enough, that’s on you.

    GK might not be a savior to Lin, but he would give Lin a shot to run backup PG for real.

    fresh boat is the first since then; my asian ex however considers it (boat) an embarassment and just something to show to white people to reinforce their comedic and stereotyped ideas about asians.

    i think shes right however i see it more in the context of abcs overall bland sitcom alignment of all inclusive ethnicities and sects: blackish (black folks) boat (asian folks) cristela (hispanic) modern family (gay) goldbergs (jewish) and whats the actual white folks one? the middle or maybe something thats already been cancelled dont know dont care.

  • 1mtoldman

    see my remarks above of one asian i happen to know and who is usually right about such things opinion; huang himself of course is attacking the show.

    The late Pat Ohara, from the famed “Karate Kid” was one of the originals (1974) from the Happy Days sitcom series.

    “Ohara” 1987 TV drama series starring Pat Ohara, lasted 2 seasons.

    The very first Asian sitcom (1976) starring Pat Ohara, “Mr. T and Tina”, lasted one season. Was pretty funny. No idea why it was canceled, perhaps America wasn’t ready for Asians.

    Hence the quotation.

  • yes, I read the same article that DEN players might be in mutiny to get Shaw fired
