G77 LAL @LAC Game Thread+New Coach/Team Poll

Only 6 games are left before Jeremy can focus on his summer Free Agency!

Despite not fully recovering from URI, losing some weight, it’s good to see Jeremy had fun when playing on court. He just liked to play and will continue to give his best on court. Let’s hope he can finish strong

Let’s start a new Coach and Team Poll to see where fans want to see JLin go next season

Continue to give your best, Jeremy!

MEMBERS POLL

Guess JLin's stats in Game 78 vs DEN
Which COACH do you think Jeremy Lin should play for next season? (choose up to 2 answers/day)

 

  • 1mtoldman

    haiz. just 2 tempting. this time for sure i promise. no mas. cause baseball season is on and lins lakers time basically done. no mas. no mas. 6 and out. no doubt.

  • haha .. I thought no more first to give others a chance.
    I guess the temptation is too great :]

    So who are your Top 2 Coaches for JLin?
    I got MDA and Carlisle for now, whoever will give the most faith and PT to JLin

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    geez, this 1st post is nothing to mod. Why is it so hard for you to resist the temptation?

  • Sunny Sullenberger

    I just hope that Lin can make some shots. That is all.

  • Brent Yen

    Makes all of it!!!!

  • @1mtoldman:disqus has been first for the past 4-5 threads.
    Let’s ask him why the temptation was so great LOL

  • Tiger Dad mode for today :]

  • Brent Yen

    LOL, it does not hurt to wish for the unlikely……..LOL

  • blubell
  • Sometimes I think what Coach Musselman tweets is so appropriate in JLin’s situation.
    Perhaps he’s been sending subliminal messages to Jeremy :]

  • 1mtoldman

    i dont think any particular coach matters; what matters is an organization that is fair and a system where and circumstance where there aren’t clear hidden agenda’s working against him.

  • 1mtoldman

    cause its just sitting there. virgin. untouched. i actually waited this time. i waited for someone else. it seems a big deal to people to post first, they get so excited and say “first”. i dont say “first”. and this is the last absolutely cuz as i said baseball season is on and lin’s lakers purgatorial stint is basically over.

    i probably wont be posting here again till next fall. when nba starts up again. so a farewell. acheivement (of sorts, even tho geez its nothing to s.s. above)

  • yes, achievement is still an achievement :]
    You can also stop by in July when Lin decides which team he decides to join for the next 2-3 years and why.

    Melody has been good in providing the countdown to FA & NBA draft. We’ll add countdown counter on homepage so people know when the next important dates will be.

    Great job figuring out how this Disqus thing is actually supposed to work!

  • FrankW

    That would drive out the evil doers from this fan site for the day.

  • LAJane

    Enjoy the Lin hiatus..hopefully when you come back it’ll be because of great news.

  • joyce ward

    I have been thinking, this whole thing about scott who he wants in the foxhole is why to DNP-CD Lin/Boozer/Davis, and if Young were playing, then he definitely would be in the group.LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I think Lin/Boozer/Davis are not BS’s favor bc these players are not Kobe’s favor… Boozer maybe a little bit better sure not Lin & Davis. Kobe hates PnR. But since Lin & Davis will be free soon. Young is another story.

  • joyce ward

    Kobe pretends with Boozer, but Booze has his number. Also that wanted lowball Davis, and not play him, but he spoke up. I think Scott’s move is a powerplay.He doesn’t want them to resign lin/davis/boozer. All he has is a bunch of young players, who he can bully. I am sure they willl try to trade Hill/Young in the offseason.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I doubt Young is still injured and unable to play. This has to be a fu to bs.

  • joyce ward

    7 mores days and a wakeup left before this nightmare ends for lin.

  • joyce ward

    Scott was the one saying Young will be gone for the rest of the season. I think Young wanted to play.

  • CJSHYY

    I totally agree that they will traded Hill/Young. BS & Kobe want to be in charge the whole team & they don’t want Lin/Davis/Boozer to resign w Lakers. Specially Lin. I hope Kobe & Rondo can be in the same team next season. Can’t wait to see their lockers room story… LOL!

  • Brent Yen

    And a party!!!!

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Young wants to play but BS will not let him. I don’t believe Young is injury at all.

  • lleepar

    Wow. Strong. Read the following tweets from the bottom, up.

  • joyce ward

    Yeah, I am about that life…LOL

  • Brent Yen

    What is that APP…looks cool

  • joyce ward
  • dolphin2k2

    Why the switch? They were featuring Clarsanity vs CP last game.

  • Samuel

    Yep, both ESPN and TNT know who is the most popular player on the team, whick Laker should they sell one next year?
    Rondo? Clarkson da Westbrook 2.0??

  • Samuel

    I wanna know what would Kidd say about coach Scott..

  • Brent Yen

    LOL…they are using Lin AGAIN!

  • tin3ytina

    Always… It’s getting sickening

  • CJSHYY

    They? NBA or Lakers?

  • Brent Yen

    NBA

  • CJSHYY

    I think this probably from your team to NBA…

  • lleepar

    APP: Tweetbot for iPad

  • Brent Yen

    Could be

  • maybe the @NBA Media people is a closet Lin fan LOL

  • tin3ytina

    6-game night around the NBA and we've got you covered with Gametime tonight at 7 PM ET on NBA TV! pic.twitter.com/x1IRwCv7me— NBA TV (@NBATV)

  • tin3ytina

    they used clarkson here.

  • CJSHYY

    From Rox period, I read somewhere said so… I guess the picture it’s from your team to NBA, TNT, or ESPN.

  • CJSHYY

    Bc that’s old picture from last game so they continue to use it…

  • tin3ytina

    it’s the same one??? that’s lame

  • CJSHYY

    I guess so?!

  • 7 more days before Lin’s freedom so I got the Champagne bottles ready .. plus the Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream LOL

  • tin3ytina

    sharing is caring 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    c this is the old one (above) cause masked marvel still masked– in new one (below) unmasked. (as is now). also one above is generic can be used for any date; one below is specific to 2nites games.

  • 1mtoldman

    do u pour the champagne over the ice cream or drop the ice cream into the champagne?

  • tin3ytina

    oh you’re right.. nba twitter lazy sometimes.. just reuse old ones

  • absolutely, we should have a virtual toast after April 15 =)

  • I prefer to swim on it but it’s free-styling for everyone … hehe..

  • 1mtoldman

    uh yer aware thats also tax day.

  • some of us may have double toasts then :]

  • 1mtoldman

    “When a team is enduring a tough season, the ideal scenario would be that the players and coaches lean on each other to get through it. But Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott does not think that’s the reality on his team. After practice Monday, Scott said that a fair share of his players would turn on him if given the chance.” –For The Win

    Los Angeles Lakers, Byron Scott, Coaching

  • It’s not surprising that so far MDA is leading the Lin’s Next Coach poll with 72% of votes, followed by Rick Carlisle (24%) and George Karl (4%)

    At the end of the day, the coach is the one with the power to utilize a player’s strength or marginalize it.
    I don’t want to see BScott-like treatment anymore to bench Lin when he gets hot

  • probably something along the line of “I wouldn’t hesitate to get him fired all over again” lol

  • MoominFloren

    For Hello Kitty fans…..one more reason for LA to root for Clippers than Tankers

    https://twitter.com/laclippers/status/585549613790203904

  • 1mtoldman

    oh i got hello kitty toaster!! its supposed to imprint a hello kitty face on the bread but it doens’t really work but it is an attention getting kitchen piece. (toothbrush holder and one thing i dont know what is, but its cool cause its got hello kitty on it; someone was gonna throw it out, i think maybe its an ashtray.)

    do you know they actually have hello kitty stores that sell nothing but hello kitty; wierd, i can’t remember where i saw the first one, maybe in l.a.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Who made that poll?

  • bolero

    Can't wait to watch @ScottiePippen & @JudahWorldChamp spreading laughter to the world. Tonite on #FreshOffTheBoat 8p pic.twitter.com/0XKN64nkfN— Forrest Wheeler (@wheeler_forrest) April 7, 2015

  • MoominFloren

    No idea about the store location coz I’m not in states.
    Please come to Japan / Taiwan / Hong kong, and you will find yourself surround by infinity Hello Kitty….we even have Kitty DimSum restaurant in HK

  • MoominFloren

    A Good place for celebrating Lin’s out of LA 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah it was probably in taiwan or hong kong then i saw it.

  • bolero

    My mom got to meet @JLin7 at her office party last night. What a baller. Jeremy's not bad either. pic.twitter.com/otxl5vaRmb— Sophie Dichter (@sophiesdichter) April 7, 2015

  • bolero

    @JLin7 Thank you for the card Jeremy!! My brothers and I really like it. Thank you again!!!! pic.twitter.com/15h2bwcYYO— Ben Kim (@southpawdrblr) April 7, 2015

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Because Byron knew that he had betrayed the trust of all players and he’s afraid of Karma and retaliation from the players.

  • Rick Johnson

    He’s always been especially good to young kids.

  • Rick Johnson

    Are players expressing their opinion to the front office of Byron Scott’s incompetence? Jason Kidd all over again.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m certain if the coach is MDA, this team will make the playoff. Jordon Hill is easily the big man who can shoot 3s. That will space the court enough for Lin-Boozer-Davis-Wesley Johnson. The front line of Lin-Davis-Boozer-Wesley-Hill will be a strong team to beat.

  • MoominFloren

    Haha yes i almost forget this scene

  • Rick Johnson
  • Sophie Paris

    That’s my kitty there

  • 1mtoldman

    spurs keep rolling 23 8 over unmasked man and whatever else is left uninjured of okies.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol nice. I went to the hello kitty store when I lived in Tokyo it’s huge *_* Got some straps for phone. Oh yeah I also have a top pajama hello kitty too haha

  • Sophie Paris

    Taste the Linsanity OO
    (I’m thinking about something else than ice-cream lol)

  • Sophie Paris

    Westbrook cannot do everything. He already gets 3D every game. Lol

  • 1mtoldman

    i’ll trade you the toaster for the pajama top! haha (first time ive ever said haha) smh.

    i think the store i saw must have been in hong kong.

    why do you need straps for a phone? what do they do?

  • 1mtoldman

    westbrook got a quadruple double; 2 points, 2 steals, 2 rebounds, 2 fouls.

  • 1mtoldman

    can you say that here?

    idk

  • I did. it’s up above inside the post

  • Sophie Paris

    Ikr!! The toaster I might be interested xD

    There’s no use really it’s just for fashion. It was the trend on those phones:

  • Sophie Paris

    Exactly ;D

    (Getting hungry btw)

  • joyce ward

    So nothing from Scott today since he dropped his little bomb threats yesterday>>LOL

  • sport

    Jordon Hill don’t like MDA forgot the reason why, he openly complained about him.

  • lleepar
  • joyce ward
  • Sophie Paris

    Idk either but I didn’t say anything really. I just read the ice pot 😉

  • John Lee

    Bwahahahahaha!

    Funniest quote of the year!

  • 1mtoldman

    see if you had that toaster you could be eating bread (du pain) with hello kittys face on it.

  • lleepar
  • Yascar

    No it’s not. It’s called cluelessness, favoritism and complete lack of leadership. He’s so pathetic idk whether to laugh or cry.

  • Sophie Paris

    Lol I root for the Spurs anyway

  • 1mtoldman

    not new but i dropped in a new post with a slightly different emphasis by the commentator below that just showed up recently;

    ” After practice Monday, Scott said that a fair share of his players would turn on him if given the chance.” –For The Win

    (theres more below)–so its still generating buzz.

  • John Lee

    And it’d be for a good many legit reasons too. At least BS is not completely clueless, only 99.99%. LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron just lives in a planet of his own.

  • John Lee

    Spurs in full playoff mode now, crushed OKC last meeting and mopping the floor with them again tonight.

    68 to 44 one and a half minute into 3Q.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    There are already a pile of players under the bus before Nick was thrown there.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’m rooting for NO who is fighting with all they have against GSW in order to stay alive in their playoff race.

  • John Lee

    Rooting for BOS and IND/CHA for the last two berths in the East, and DAL and NOP in the West.

    Hate Miami (Dragic(s)), BKN(Deron), OKC(PED Westbrook) and PHX (Bledsoe).

  • MoominFloren

    You know how to coach?!? Hahahahahaha

  • tin3ytina

    that looks good!

  • joyce ward
  • 1mtoldman

    only negative here apparently parker tweaked achilles; sitting out rest game. hope is mainly just cause not needed and not because serious.

  • John Lee

    Spurs is the only team where I don’t mind Jeremy playing off the bench. Manu is starting material anywhere else, but has no issue taking the bench for the team. TP and Manu both getting long in the tooth, and Pops rests his players, if based on merits alone Jeremy will get his chance to shine.

  • 1mtoldman

    no up now; difference here davis 2/10 first half 6/7 second half.

  • FYI
    Due to some requests, I created 2 Off-Topic Sticky Posts (Recent News & FUN things) on homepage.
    This will allow us to:
    1. focus on Lin-related news in Latest Thread and
    2, provide longer discussion in the Off-Topic threads (i.e. Fun Videos, Clean Jokes, latest news, education, etc.)
    So hopefully it will provide the best of both worlds.

    Note: @takemeback2reaganyears:disqus, please feel free to use the Off-Topic News thread

  • John Lee

    You have so much Asian in you for a French gal. Best of both worlds. 🙂

  • Interesting comment from Ed Davis about BScott’s foxhole comments.

    https://twitter.com/MarkG_Medina/status/585621906520461313

  • guest

    Didn’t Wechat the same thing about Lib playing back up to Nash? See what happened to Lin on the Lakers?

  • lleepar

    That mystfies me …

  • John Lee

    Please…just PLEASE…DO NOT compare BS to Pops. And who’d be Kobe’s counterpart in Spurs?

  • John Lee

    Ed Davis confused with another type of hole.

  • tin3ytina

    there’s just too much locker room tension… those coming back to lakers vs those who are not. players are not on the same page with each other or the coach. and it shows on court.

  • 1mtoldman

    funny. (but idk if you can say that on here). maybe they give special compensation when directed at bs.

  • MoominFloren

    hehe

  • John Lee

    Ambiguity is your friend… 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    yes my imaginary friend. glad you see him 2.

  • guest

    Please just stop saying Lin be a back up to any player. LinLin can shine anywhere as long as he is the starting PG.

  • Maknusia

    Yeah….my recent visit to Philippines, showed hello kitty was huge there as well

  • John Lee

    That is NOT the argument here at all.

    Lin’s starting now, but in name only and without control of the ball. How’s that really better?

  • Brent Yen

    Man…Spurs are completely ready for playoff…

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What an honor psalm, I’d be glad to but it’ll be night without lin playing. this is your great idea for us since we will have a long summer. Off topic would be fun and to keep all of us in touch.

  • Brent Yen

    I wonder once Lin left LA, will that Linsanity sandwitch be taken off from the menu?

  • John Lee

    East coast Spurs too. Just wrecked the Suns with their near-max Blahd…I mean, Bledsoe.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Mark Medina deserves a promotion.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Hating is not coaching

  • you’re welcome 🙂 Great idea BTW
    It just took me a while trying to create a good format for the off-topics.

    I really hope Lin’s off-season will land him to a good coach/team worth rooting for next season!

  • joyce ward

    you guys i look at davis/Lin, they really don’t hangout with a lot of the players on the team.Lin has always been straightforward and honest and when he has disagreements with Scott.Lin has taken it upon himself and went to scott to find out what he needed to do better.I think Young/Hill/Boozer having been saying things to the Rooks about Scott and it got back to him. I think Davis was just saying that it was not right.jmo

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Me too. Let us also be active here to update for our other lin fans around the world.

  • Brent Yen

    GSW lost…OKC lost..

  • now we understand why Byron Scott is such a poor leader with miserable poor coaching record
    He doesn’t inspire, he just attacks in media and works out his players too much

  • joyce ward

    WOW, what does this mean?

  • 1mtoldman

    means pelicans got the 8th spot for now (i think).

  • Brent Yen

    meaning OKC is now outside looking in

  • 1mtoldman

    davis first half 2/10 second half 8/11

  • joyce ward

    LOL

  • Brent Yen

    NOP holds the tiebreaker over OKC…if I am not mistaken

  • hm, that could really happened that way.
    After Hill/Boozer/Young got DNP-ed, they must have held some grudges.
    Young has been outspoken to the media about what he really thinks of BScott.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Boozer/Hill complained about BScott’s coaching to others.

    I think Byron is afraid this is deja vu with JKidd and Nets players plotting to get him fired.
    That’s why he’s paranoid now

  • yes, I don’t doubt some of us will scour the Internet daily to get hints of what Lin’s plan next in the summer 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

    “” After practice Monday, Scott said that a fair share of his players would turn on him if given the chance.” –For The Win

    paranoid.

  • yup… he might even suspect JKidd has been talking to his LAL players 🙂

  • joyce ward

    Lin has been very open and candid when scott tried to make him look bad. Often times Scott has been the one to really look bad. I think Lin is straightforward and not about the backbiting. I really think that scott is talking about Boozer/Davis/Hill because they seem to have have all access to the rookies.

  • joyce ward
  • I think you’re right that the vets (Young/Boozer/Hill) could be who Byron is afraid of.
    Good ESP =)

  • Brent Yen

    LOL WT…..

  • Nice Lin photobombing =)
    In the summer, he should show up in random weddings to create fun videos hehe..

  • joyce ward
  • John Lee

    Jeremy would be the world’s most welcome wedding crasher!

  • joyce ward
  • Brent Yen

    So looking forward to this game! because 3 hours later, only 5 games left!

  • John Lee

    If true, who do you think was the little snitch?

  • k.smith

    I need to hang around here more. You guys are so civil and you know, act like adults. I’ve missed this da.mn place.

  • blubell

    woohoo! 333333333333

  • Grace Nsns

    3 pointer!

  • Alain Gervais

    this looks better

  • blubell

    Another 3!~

  • Grace Nsns

    another one! Yes!

  • blubell
  • Grace Nsns

    finally got his touch back, about time. Go Jeremy!

  • Alain Gervais

    nice crossover

  • blubell

    Great move though…

  • blubell

    Jeremy doing well on nationally televised game!

  • Alain Gervais

    jordan is a problem

  • Grace Nsns

    got killed by Jordan again, isn’t this guy the one JLin was cut for when he was with War?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Is the solution playing PG yet?

  • That was a great crossover/drive by Lin. Lakers have no bigs that are an offensive threat so DJordan can camp in the paint. On any other team, the big on Lin’s team would have taken his man out of the paint.

  • Alain Gervais

    already more then yesterday

  • Grace Nsns

    out as clock, SMH

  • blubell

    why!!!!

  • Maknusia

    6pts in 6min!

  • Rick

    No tanking tonight
    It is showtime (only to Adam Silver)

  • Sophie Paris

    Tank tank

  • Take out the leading scorer who is shooting well AND getting to the basket. Tank mode in full effect.

  • blubell

    BS BS

  • Alain Gervais

    this game will be over soon especially if the 3rd pg plays

  • sws94

    Had a nice looking assist to Black too. Lin more involved in the offense in this game.

  • 1mtoldman

    make sacre yer first sub; tank mode in full effect.

  • Maknusia

    pretty much standard 6min substitution…sigh!

  • 1mtoldman

    yes first game since he was sick where he looks to have his strength back.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Lin is out, so next time he steps in, the gap will be too large……..

  • Maknusia

    whats new??!?!

  • Rick Johnson

    Half the Lakers points. BScott takes him out, Clippers go on a run.

  • Brent Yen

    I am torn between to go watch NCIS or keep watching the game

  • what’s up with pulling Lin at 5min mark consistently in the past 5 games?

    ensure the tank + mess with Lin’s rhythm?

  • wandertheglobe
  • Brent Yen

    to tank…

  • Alain Gervais

    dodgers game

  • how about Fresh Off The Boat? hehe..

    our house is former NCIS fans too 🙂

  • Brent Yen

    Do not like baseball

  • blubell
  • IsabeliJane*17

    Playoffs can’t come soon enough. *sigh*

  • Alain Gervais

    lol you sound like a robot but i compute

  • Maknusia

    Oh Kelly!

  • TTNN

    they put Wes on JJ Redick, big mistake.

  • Maknusia

    2pt game…became 7pt game in 2 minutes!

  • Brent Yen

    Vets back court is schooling rooks right now

  • if Lakers manage lose the Top 5 Draft Pick, idk what will happen to Byron 🙂

  • Maknusia

    I’m not even mad…knowing what BS is

  • Brent Yen

    LOL

  • blubell

    Sacre is tanking well…

  • Brent Yen

    That is just ridiculous

  • John Lee

    Let’s see how Silver stays in denial about tanking after this game.

  • orLinaryjoe

    The voice

  • John Lee

    How ’bout Agents of Shield? haha

    On a more serious note, I do think BS works for Hydra.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    With Jeremy out of the game, I got entertained by that Kia Optima commercial by Blake Griffin. Got a good chuckle from that one.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Exactly. Effortless

  • Brent Yen

    Actually now, NCIS, NCIS:NO, FOTB, Agent of the SHIELD and Person of interest are there in my DVR waiting for me.

  • wandertheglobe

    Lin broke Paul’s ankle, too bad the layup was blocked.

  • Brent Yen

    I feel he works for Thanos

  • Maknusia

    Hey…I own one! 🙂

  • MoominFloren

    I think Lakers are doing a pretty good job on developing rookies and d league players. They are our future…….. Silver

  • Maknusia

    Thats Tankulous!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Mind the gap

  • John Lee

    Not as effortless as Kelly though.

  • Hydra will have strong Taiwanese branch soon =>

  • oh man, you gotta send me that DVR brand hehe

  • Brent Yen

    LOL just a Tivo

  • wandertheglobe

    Ton Loc is on Clips bench

  • orLinaryjoe

    The Lakers future is effortless with effortless coach

  • Brent Yen

    JB only think about shoot now…..completely been assimilated by BS

  • JW

    Davis playing aggressive. he knows he won’t have a lot of minutes.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Good for you. You’re in great company.

    I’d like a Dodge Charger though. Dominic Torretto’s fault for making it fierce on my eyes. 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Yee-haw

  • John Lee

    The Borg Queen looks sexy despite being bald, BS bald is just unsightly.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Yes, agent of shield. Tanks for reminder

  • Maknusia

    Dodge is pretty good as well…use to own an Intrepid

  • John Lee

    Not just any tank…a not-quite-invisible quintank! LOL

  • Brent Yen

    I would love to put BS into that cube, and kick in the hper-wrap for him. Sent him to Omega quadrant..

  • orLinaryjoe

    Nooooo. Rented one. All looks, terrible drive.

  • Alain Gervais

    scot don’t want the same embarrassment like the day before hint why Davis is playing

  • John Lee

    Ah the Intrepid…from the cab-forward LH era when Chrysler’s vehicles actually looked good.

  • Rick Johnson

    At the end of the 1st, Lin only played 6 minutes and still leads all Lakers in points.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    0_0

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Ford for me, they didn’t take any taxpayer bail out money.

  • blubell
  • 1mtoldman

    well here’s an even better not “small sample size” stat for you i bet even u didnt know: for the season at this moment right now lin leads the lakers in points scored for the season despite starting only 29 games.

    (also leads in steals and assists).

  • Maknusia

    true enough! 😉

  • Brent Yen

    I was wrong, it is only a 2pt game.

  • Alain Gervais

    6 points

  • blubell
  • akgul

    thought they said buycks would only play on emergency situations….that was some buuuuuullcrap

  • Brent Yen

    The shot was too good, it was counted as 4 pt

  • @JLin7 leads Lakers with 6pts in Q1 but benched after 6 min.
    #FullTankModeActivated

  • Alain Gervais

    the not nab player is in. scare as well

  • sws94

    I hate Byron. Playing Buycks. Why? Lin was doing well and he is just going to waste on the bench? Let LIn play point and bring in Buycks as insurance only. He’s not any good.

  • blubell

    That was BS indeed

  • Alain Gervais

    who cares 5 games left

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    close game so far. Lin still on bench. I guess he’ll be limited to about 20 minutes no matter what.

  • blubell

    Kaboom!!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    #WereNotInPlayofffsSoWeWillSulk

  • blubell
  • sws94

    I care. I don’t care about the Lakers, Lin was playing well. I’m watching for LIn.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I’ve seen Jeremy on the receiving end of that Davis foul on Austin many times and that never gets a whistle and replay review. Just because that kid’s daddy is a coach they’ll review it? ah well…

  • Lol 1extra point for artistic value

  • akgul

    Buycks for 30+ min he is the truest PG there will ever be!

  • Brent Yen

    Why was that a foul?

  • Brent Yen

    Kelly almost always makes the right play. Just could not execute…too bad….I wonder who will sign him

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • John Lee

    Daddyball…wins!

  • Brent Yen

    Lin is already leaning on the door now…

  • John Lee

    Leaning? He already has one foot out of the door! LOL

  • Brent Yen

    Then I guess indeed, he should mind the gap…

  • orLinaryjoe

    Miserable season, humour needed

  • blubell

    Jeremy coming in.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Google eyes? Shiny!

  • Brent Yen

    Shoot…I was just about to tune away…

  • blubell

    Coming in with Clarkson so….

  • Brent Yen

    Good pt

  • wandertheglobe

    Ed out Lin in

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I was about to switch to VS until Jeremy went to scorer’s table…

  • LAJane

    Yeah. Too bad Davis can’t play with him.

  • PPP

    You need to go to staple center.

  • blubell

    At least Black is in…

  • Alain Gervais

    and not hill

  • Brent Yen

    LOL even Lin agreed it is LAC ball..

  • wandertheglobe

    BS wants to make Lin a SG.

  • blubell

    or Sacre

  • Brent Yen

    He wants Lin gone

  • blubell

    Shhhh lol

  • wandertheglobe

    He doesn’t want Lin in his Foxhole

  • blubell

  • Brent Yen

    He is afraid

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron is determined to ice out Ed Davis with D-leaguers.

  • blubell

    Good job deflecting.

  • Alain Gervais

    lin rush that last shot

  • sws94

    Not impressed Clarkson. Too much one on one and not involving the team mates.

  • blubell

    iso iso iso

  • LAJane

    That’s a very funny little genuflection.

  • Maknusia

    Fox bite can be disastrous as well!

  • IsabeliJane*17

    I think Clippers will still not go further this playoffs.

  • orLinaryjoe

    iso boring

  • blubell

    It was indeed littl 🙂

  • blubell

    I so agree.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Pick and rolLin

  • sws94

    So TNT didn’t notice that pass by Lin. Come on.

  • Grace Nsns

    got a block, right?

  • IsabeliJane*17

    “Who’s the Real MVP?” discussion

    PLEASE PICK CURRY. OR LEBRON. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! NOT HARDEN OR WB!

  • Alain Gervais

    mvp talk

  • Alain Gervais

    curry

  • sws94

    Which they could have talked about after saying nice pass by Lin.

  • Keith

    curry

  • LAJane

    He was always an eager-beaver rook. Now that it’s foxhole season, there is no reason to learn how to be part of a team. Friendly fire, and devil take the hindmost….

  • orLinaryjoe

    Like some spicy gold and blue Curry

  • wandertheglobe

    BS wants Lin to guard Barnes and Wes guards Crawford. I guess he doesn’t think Lin can guard Crawford.

  • grover chang

    The one principle of analytics that Morey did follow, put the ball in the hands of your best player as much as possible increases your production. He certainly did that this year with Harden and to his credit Harden responded. Curry is more entertaining but can’t fault if Harden gets the MVP. He carried the Rockets to the 2nd best record in the west and he is now clutch.

  • blubell

    Look at Clarkson demanding the ball…

  • Rick Johnson

    This is how BScott should have managed Kobe’s minutes. 6 min beginning of 1st & 3rd, 6 min end of 2nd and 4th. Total 24 minutes.

  • Grace Nsns

    got the call!

  • Grace Nsns

    He’s given all green light.

  • blubell

    made both FTs!

  • orLinaryjoe

    FTs!

  • grover chang

    “Hydrants, charmin, head of snakes, Foxholes, Tanks.” WTH is this team talking about this season? Is this what low IQ basketball people talk like. No wonder the reporters crowd around LIn for quotes. He is the only one smart enough to talk about basketball in professional terms.

  • blubell

    Kobe should do the right thing and just retire and take BS with him.

  • Maknusia

    end of season….I guess everyone just wants to pad their stats

  • blubell

    assist #2?

  • grover chang

    yes big ZERO minutes for both of them next year please. I say this as a Laker and as a Lin fan. When Lin first got to the lakers I thought I was in basketball heaven, BS turned it into a nightmare.

  • Grace Nsns

    yes!

  • JoeTeam

    I can praise Clarkson’s floater if it gives JLin and assist lol …

  • Rick Johnson

    Dang, they got TNT announcers fawning over Clarkson now? SMH.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Black is in foul trouble. Looks like we can see Lin-Davis connection tonight.

  • blubell

    *gasp* lol

  • Maknusia

    wow…looks like Lin is trying to nail his 3s this game….Go Lin

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Clarkson’s shot selection is pain in the eyes, especially his attacks on the basket.

  • joyce ward

    It is all about the ROY race, that is it. We all know that once Rondo is signed Clarkson will be a faded memory.

  • Alain Gervais

    its amazing how much focus dander has on lin so much so he let clarkson straight to the rim. clarkson still missed

  • Rick Johnson

    Kelly should shoot 3’s from the gutters. His shoot chart shows he’s much more accurate there.

  • orLinaryjoe

    My, Kelly 1 for 12, ouch.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron wouldn’t mind losing the game. He insisted on playing Sacre and Black with Jeremy. Davis is still out with 2nd lowest minutes.

  • JoeTeam

    fifme: “May I praise Clarkson’s floater if it gives JLin an assist?”

  • John Lee

    Ryan Kelly with 2 pts off 1/12 shooting, played 20 min and Wes also 2 pts off 1/5 playing 21 min.

    Mr. Silver does not think this is tanking?

  • TTNN

    Lin made the only 2 3s for Lakers this game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron still let him play while Boozer got no minutes.

  • Alain Gervais

    12 shots when?

  • Rick Johnson

    Don’t know why Scott needs to try so hard to lose. It would be tough for the Lakers to beat the Clippers if they tried.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    No matter what Byron Scott throws at Jeremy, He just keeps his cool.

  • blubell

    30+ minutes for Kelly would be BS’s “logic”

  • orLinaryjoe

    Somebody else 0 for 5. Guess who?

  • Yes, 2-13 at the half!
    Amazing stat

  • blubell
  • orLinaryjoe

    Kelly is tanktastic!

  • LAJane

    Totally agree. It’s worse than bullies and mean girls in high school, or twelve-year-olds hiding in the internet to spout obscenities. It’s been going on for most of the season now, and I still can’t get used to the immaturity and unprofessionalism of it all. Shocks me afresh every time.

  • blubell

    That is a good tanking stat 🙂

  • blubell
  • yes, especially it ends up with 4-26 with Lin making 4 threes LOL

  • joyce ward

    come on li and get in double digits tonight for points.

  • LAJane

    I don’t think it’s even that it’s the end of the season. That “foxhole” comment just destroyed any last shred of team possibility and abandoned the rooks to mosh-pit mentality.

  • blubell

    Beautiful ending…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott insists on keeping his better players on the bench. Boozer, Hill got no minutes. Ed Davis only the 2nd lowest. Ryan Kelly, Jordon Clarkson, and Wesley Johnson got about 20 minutes. Then Lin and Sacre played about 13 mins. Then JB played 11 mins. Ed Davis played 7.5 mins and Dwight Buycks played about 6 mins.

  • I like how Lin kept smiling while making FTs.
    Just him and the net

  • blubell

    Very close to it 🙂

  • blubell

    Tune out the BS.

  • webattorney

    Agreed. Harden Most Valuable Player to his team.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Kelly and Wes got 20+ minutes, and they’re ice cold. Between them, 4 pts. Must be in for defense.

  • wandertheglobe

    Ryan Kelly (2 first names) can’t shoot, no D and doesn’t pass. Only on this tank team he’s getting the minutes he’s getting.

  • Swish!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott is good at allocating the most minutes to the ice cold players.

  • CJSHYY

    That’s why they got 20 min bc good for tanking. LOL!

  • LAJane

    Drunk with power. “I can do whatever $h*t I want and you all will have to eat it.” I think his own bile is starting to corrode him from the inside.

  • Hans

    Wesley Johnson and R.Kelly combined for 2-17 in the first half. what did BS do? he gave them 20 min each. Ed Davis (4 rb), Tarik Black (8 pt 6 rb), and Jeremy Lin (8 pt, 2 ast) got 7, 11, and 12 min respectively. commender BS should drive this tank to the middle east and the war would end in no time.

  • joyce ward

    I guess Silver is there to make sure Lin plays.LOL

  • CJSHYY

    I guess Silver just wants to know how bad Lakers is tanking now. If he can he maybe will fine Lakers… LOL!

  • LAJane

    LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Guess who wouldn’t want to be in foxhole with Byron Scott?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott is very good at losing games but he can’t win.

  • PPP

    Guarantee johnson and kelly will be in the foxhole with bs. lol

  • sws94

    I think he will but I’d like to see him get to 50% FG as well. 6-12 would be fine.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I admire that Jeremy can still keep his cool on this inept coach. This must be the worst coaching he ever experienced. It’s not easy with Sampson and McHale the years before.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I thought Byron Scott didn’t believe in 3 pointers.

  • Grace Nsns

    nightmare 3 years.

  • LAJane

    I couldn’t imagine anyone worse than McHale…but BS really seems worse…d’ya think?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Be conservative Lin. This is not your team.

  • nice find by Lin for Wes 3

  • blubell

    Assist #3

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, no, bombs away!

  • John Lee

    No real point in comparing which one stinks more, BS or horse manure. But yes, BS is worse.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kelly no match for Griffin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    If it’s Boozer and Davis instead of Kelly and Black, Laker would be able to compete.

  • John Lee

    Kelly has as much chance at stopping Griffin as I do.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sub Boozer in for Kelly, dumb coach.

  • blubell

    Destroy the tank!

  • Alain Gervais

    black is challenging jordan too much

  • LAJane

    LOL…skipper’s got a point…why pick at a scab 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boozer>>>Kelly
    Davis>>>>>>Black

  • Black is good but Ed Davis would have the quick hops for the easy putback

  • blubell

    In conclusion, BS is at fault.

  • Rick Johnson

    JLin seems to slip a lot. Adidas got to do more research.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Trading baskets! sigh!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Nike shoes didn’t slip that much

  • John Lee

    Jeremy’s steps too powerful, shoes need even more traction. (I used to do the same back in high school)

  • blubell

    Double Digit!

  • Grace Nsns

    lay-up!

  • orLinaryjoe

    LIN!!! With left!

  • JoeTeam

    Nice 2nd elevation with the ball for the JLin layup.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    In Reddick’s face…

  • Lin did a nice job clogging the passing lane between Griffin and Jordan. Great Help Defense!

  • LAJane

    Woot woot!

  • Grace Nsns

    Yay!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin threads it to Black!

  • blubell

    Beautiful assist #4

  • Grace Nsns

    nice assist for Black dunk

  • orLinaryjoe

    Clarkson does his best imitation.

  • Alain Gervais

    thats was an easier pass

  • Grace Nsns

    5min mark, time to yank lin, I hate BS!

  • Alain Gervais

    i find it funny how aback is alway waiting for lin but never for clarkson

  • Alain Gervais

    jordan

  • orLinaryjoe

    That was his best effort, LOL.

  • LAJane

    It’s getting to where I like Lin’s defense as much as his offense. Not all fans can see it…heck, half the so-called sports writers don’t see it. To me it’s like Paris couture…nobody sees the seams inside the dress, but they are all finished off with hand stitching. A thing of pride and beauty.

  • sws94

    There is an electricity about Lin that Clarkson lacks. Clarkson has good enough athleticism, but that spark isn’t there.

  • Rick Johnson

    Of the starters Black is the only one with less assists than the starting PG.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Don’t care about game out come. Lin is back!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Linning!

  • Alain Gervais

    refs are letting a lot go

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Black certainly can pick up his confidence playing with Lin.

  • Alain Gervais

    lin sits

  • sws94

    Lin over dribbled that time. No big deal, just play his game.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin is out because you’re playing too well!!!!!!!!
    Byron’s logic.

  • blubell

    10pts, 5 asts.

  • Keith

    Watch how Lin uses the switch from one side to other to generate power on off foot layup https://t.co/SCPTeI30iE— BBALLBREAKDOWN (@bballbreakdown) April 8, 2015

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jordon is aiming at Lin’s shot but Lin uses the board well.

  • John Lee

    “Byron’s logic” is an oxymoron, like James Harden’s share, or Miley Cyrus’s aesthetics.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    better than pass for a TO

  • blubell
  • Rick

    6 pt game, and obviously BS is afraid the Lakers are too close to win the game, so he takes out Lin and puts Davis back (but not play Lin and Davis together cuz that will be too dangerous, haha)

  • 58-64 Lin with 10pts/5a in 19min
    Tank is tilting so Byron sat Lin with 5min left in Q3

  • Alain Gervais

    if lin don’t olay its ok he played great against a pretty good team

  • sws94

    Drove into a lot of traffic. Lin needs to reset when the spacing isn’t there. But no big deal, he’s playing well overall.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin-Davis is lethal to the tank!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Laker has to play against Clipper and Byron Scott.

  • Grace Nsns

    2 more points we got season average. not bad.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Once LIn was taken out, the defense collapsed.

  • JoeTeam

    I thought he was just avoiding the block with the left hand elevation, but it’s interesting the catch on the off foot layup. Hmmm … maybe that’s why he needed the other hand to elevate the ball above the block. So maybe it’s not power he generated, but elevation through switching hands.

  • Rick

    Wow, 4 clippers against Lin

  • blubell

    and the lead balloons.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Do you think Byron would let Jeremy come back?

  • TTNN

    JC lost CP3 all the time

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Lin not getting any calls again. Last game was the same. Lin got fouled on that last shot attempt. Two guys were holding his hands.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin is in the game for a reason, their Ds has to watch him seriously.

  • JJ Hui

    Super sick with bs coach! Took Lin out and put in Ed Davis! Such a moron!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    That will never change

  • Rick Johnson

    It will be garbage time by then. Probably won’t play anymore.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I thought Refs were starting to give him calls. Not the last 2 games.

  • blubell
  • JoeTeam

    Hey what is good tonight is it looks like Lin is over his URI and playing physically well. Hopefully he will be breathing well for Mile High tomorrow.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Then JC started scoring on Chris Paul + 2nd team.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Lakers is at least playing much better tonight. They’re at least in the game with a small chance of winning it.

  • CJSHYY

    I think CP3 & Clippers are nice to JC tonight. They don’t want to make him looks bad again.

  • blubell
  • blubell

    or not giving him respect.

  • JW

    Doc gave LAL no credit at all for staying in the game.

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It is the 3 pointers that keep Laker in the game.

  • MEL LIN

    watch out guys kelly coming in hahahahahah

  • blubell

    NO credit to BS who doesn’t like shooting 3.

  • chan c

    awesome!!!

    and many are blind to this … smh

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bench has changed

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lin and Davis are best in team chemistry, while BS is doing everything to separate them.

  • QuietLinFan

    I think Byron Scott has just showed the world his true colors with his recent comments about his players. So sad, I liked him at first because he was part of the original Vancouver Grizzlies. Now, I’m even embarrassed that at one point, he represented my city. Not professional at all. Wonder why NBA is tolerating such behavior!

  • tin3ytina

    Have they played together a minute this game?

  • chan c

    coz Lin became starter … lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s why they are not playing together. Byron wouldn’t allow this.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    No but even a minute or two wouldn’t make any diff because Lin is not the pg.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Jeremy played 20- minutes.
    JC played 30+ mins.
    Both are starters.

  • chan c

    which is travesty!

    oh , well.. whatever… 🙂

  • Byron Scott is an insecure coach so he needed to look “tough” to appear he has control.
    JKidd and Nets players plotted to get him fired. He’s getting more paranoid now

    The truth is without Kobe, he won’t get another job in the NBA with his losing record

  • blubell
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    5 points separation. Danger! LAL is getting too close

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clippers will not go far in playoff as their bench are garbage.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    4 points separation. LAL could win the game.

  • joyce ward

    What is the point of Silver being there if he doesn’t police this up. I have to say that the Chinese are much more passive than African Americans. If this had happened to a black player in the league, black players would have called them out.

  • Byron is thinking, “Davis is on floor. Note to self: Don’t put Lin in yet. The tank might explode w #LinDavis”

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2 points separation!
    LAC timeout
    What would happen if Lakers win this game?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Egg in face for coach!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clipper’s starters are coming back.

  • JoeTeam

    ha ha but there are no other Chinese American players to call them out lol.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Message to Clippers.
    Lakers 2nd team is blowing up yours.

  • chan c

    Yep. I don’t even understand why he’s out there coaching. He’s clueless. He doesn’t know what he’s doing… smh…

  • CJSHYY

    No need to worry bc Lakers will find a way to loss the game.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    …your second unit.

  • Rick Johnson

    LOL, Byron Scott looks worried. It’s not garbage time what’s his excuse for not putting Lin in? If he does they might win.

  • orLinaryjoe

    The one chinese player would be labelled cry baby. Very unfortunate. And fans are crazy Lin fans.

  • blubell

    Jeremy is all alone 🙁

  • HeroBallJLIN

    The only way Lakers will win this game is if Lin comes back into the game. No Lin No Win. Duh

  • JoeTeam

    not for long heh heh.

  • QuietLinFan

    Yes, you’re right — that’s why he shows his “toughness” through the media. haha smh… kinda like “little kids fighting in the playground”

  • Alain Gervais

    well all the players are black so i doubt that. its the fact he is a minority in the nba that lowers his voice. not the fact he is asian. like jackie robinson who could also be called passive but he just had no power since he was the only one of his kind.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The first team of Clippers is coming back but the first team of Lakers is still sitting.

  • John Lee

    How’s that so? He’s got you, IJ, Lily, Sophie…and the list goes on and on!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Tank Mode reactivated

  • Byron is good in 1 thing .. Smiling while tanking LOL

  • pandaboy99

    20 and 10 per 38. Lin can sit iM satisfied

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a disgrace. Byron you should at least put the starters in

  • Arsenium12 .
  • blubell

    You should just stop at “He’s got you” 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Oh Lin coming back

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Looks like Lin will be coming back in.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    BS wants to win, Lin in.

  • blubell

    What is Sacre doing?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin-Davis finally!

  • Rick Johnson

    Making Jordan make FT’s

  • blubell

    Maybe BS wants to win.

  • Byron is thinking, “88-89 1pt behind Clippers. So yup, play 3-16 cold shooting Kelly to save the #Tank!”

  • Rick

    BS, is full of BS.
    What is the reason behind the sudden change?

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin slips too much.

  • joyce ward

    You know what, if Jackie Robinson thought like that, where would he be. The fact of the matter is that the African American community got behind jackie Robinson. They didn’t care about the consequences, but they recognized that it was a significant piece of history to break a color barrier.

  • Alain Gervais

    davis out

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I’ve been noticing Lin slipping and sliding around. Maybe bad shoes?

  • blubell

    Come on Kelly…

  • QuietLinFan

    short-lived. =(

  • Really Kelly? How much more open do you want to be??

  • blubell

    of course…

  • Alain Gervais

    why is kelly out there

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    lol

  • Alain Gervais

    on the moon open

  • chan c

    What’s with this back to back with the Clippers? They’re really rubbing it on the Lakers… lol

  • he will keep the #Tank safe with 3-17 shooting

  • orLinaryjoe

    Very

  • blubell
  • Rick Johnson

    Kelly has blown so many assists for JLin.

  • sport

    I think so too, Adidas really not that great compared to Nike. Assuming those are new Adidas and not worn out. =/

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS wants to look like he wants to win. Lin in. Davis out.

  • HappyTank LOL

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    But he’s retarded. He reacted too slowly.

  • blubell

    Happy to Tank.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Dave Miller on who would be the best 3 point shooter this season, Kelly.

    Dave you’re fired.

  • The “Uncontrol” theme might not be a good idea

  • orLinaryjoe

    Come on, Addidas. So not clutch with the shoes.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Kelly agian?

  • Alain Gervais

    lakers missing open shot with bad defense

  • orLinaryjoe

    Who is this Dave guy?

  • blubell
  • sport

    Not watching game but Ryan Kelly must be really bad on defense, 5 fouls really?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Inept coaching of Byron Scott is exposed.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    TW lakers

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Ugh…. this is so….

  • chan c

    and it’s only us here that notice it … nobody seem to care out there…smh

  • blubell

    BS calls.

  • Alain Gervais

    refs letting lin get roughed up

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    What was that?

  • Lin is super upset the refs didn’t make any calls when he got hammered inside

  • BobbyH

    Refs begin to chip in.

  • blubell

    listed as “stepped out of bound” smh.

  • TTNN
  • blubell

    I think I heard him say “you gotta watch the hands”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Look like he got push and BS stand with crossed arms.

  • blubell

    probably thinking Jeremy is turnover prone. smh.

  • Alain Gervais

    fourced to play davis

  • BobbyH

    Pushed out of bound.

  • TTNN
  • orLinaryjoe

    Some one needs to make a #LinGotHammeredAndStillNoCall vid

  • blubell

    exactly.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Late f k call.

  • Alain Gervais

    i don’t like how lin is being pushed out there

  • Matt Barnes got extra shove on JLin there

  • blubell

    seems to be pattern in every Clippers games. What is going on?

  • orLinaryjoe

    Who’s paying refs, LAL or Clips, LOL? Refs: why did we get paid twice?

  • sport

    JLin still short handed by BS coach, 23 minutes compared to inconsistent Johsnon’s 39 minutes and Clarkson 35 minutes! BS playing him as starter with bench minutes since day one!

  • Grace Nsns

    another miss, 🙁

  • Alain Gervais

    lol 5 more game

  • Alain Gervais

    tough shot

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Doc probably gave his men an ultimatum to “play against Jeremy Lin hard or bust” since he doesn’t really know really know how to defend him, with Jeremy picking their defense apart.

  • sport

    So glad I’m not wasting time watching these last games. Once Lin told Lakers he’s not signing they completely turned down his minutes and forced him to play SG waiting at the corner.

  • Grace Nsns

    ED out again? BS!

  • blubell

    Kelly 37 minutes….

  • BobbyH

    I gather Lakers will continue to exercise the art of Tanking, which means limited PT for Lin with no PnR.

    So much for ending the season with high note.

  • Matt Barnes is one dirty player.
    A shove and poke in the eye on Lin now

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Considering it’s lucky that they even play Jeremy.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Seriously, Clippers? Trying to be like tough 90s Detroit Pistons “bad boys”?

  • blubell

    scratched Jeremy’s cheek… it is visible.

  • sport

    Wow Lin actually got a foul call late in the game, thank goodness!

  • BobbyH

    I would rather LIN just DNPed.

  • Grace Nsns

    please make the 2nd FT!

  • blubell

    Made em both.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Oh My God! It’s a 3 points game!

  • Grace Nsns

    12pt! not easy

  • orLinaryjoe

    Whoot, 2 mo made FTs!

  • BobbyH

    12 points. I will take it.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Let’s go to OT.

  • sport

    Lin for the clutch 3 pointer next? With this BS coach fat chance but one can wish. 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    Kelly -18 SMH

  • Good thing he missed!
    I hope Lin will give his other cheek (bottom one) to bump him out-of-bound

  • Grace Nsns

    oh NO!

  • Brent Yen

    ???

  • Let’s do it!
    In-your-face 3 😀

  • sport

    Only watching last few seconds of the game but really want OT game!

  • sport

    Come on Lin make these Fts again stat padding time!

  • blubell

    More freebies coming up!

  • BobbyH

    Bonus extra 2.

  • Hope Lin’s FTs will get Lakers to OT

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    1 TO of Clipper would make the difference

  • Grace Nsns

    his 1st foul, nothing serious

  • orLinaryjoe

    2 mo! 14pts

  • sport

    3 point game again, seriously can BS just trust Lin with a clutch 3 pointer?

  • Grace Nsns

    3pt game again!

  • blubell

    Clutch FTs!

  • JW

    is that mark on his cheek from Barnes? pretty obvious and Barnes was complaining?

  • Brent Yen

    Lakers does not have the set for that…at least I have not seen it yet..

  • sport

    Lin can make that happen, he’s the best defensive player on the team along with Davis!

  • blubell

    Barnes is a known dirty player

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin with only LAL block, shesh.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I told you that this team had never been used at its full potential.
    The retarded coach doesn’t let it happen.

  • sport

    It was an obvious foul and I’m glad Lin got the call! He gets cheated of fouls way too many times!

  • Grace Nsns

    ok, Johnson fouled out.

  • sport

    Now Johnson is out with 6th foul just like Kelly.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Lai, not you told us but us/we told the world.

  • JW

    I guess that’s why he didn’t wanna foul. Was wondering what he was doing.

  • blubell
  • Grace Nsns

    Buycks got so lucky, got to finish game for lakers

  • Grace Nsns

    BS’ so scared now.

  • blubell

    I see, that explains the delayed foul.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Clarkson will shoot 3, told by BS.

  • orLinaryjoe

    No, win win for him.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL what the H was that last drive? lol

  • sport

    No foul call for Lin.

  • blubell

    Refs want to go home so no call.

  • Alain Gervais

    this was much better then last game

  • Grace Nsns

    got blocked by Barns, 14/5 I ‘ll take it. lol

  • sport

    Um I’m not sure, Lin should’ve just pulled up for a 3 pointer.

  • stam

    I just hate how the refs are always cheating Lin. I wonder if he can sue for discrimination?

  • Lin’s not happy with the refs tonight

  • sport

    refs rarely call last second fouls unless they’re rigging it.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lin looked po’d walking off

  • orLinaryjoe

    Robbed him of 2 mo pts.

  • sport

    Clipper refs are always bias for their own team!

  • Brent Yen

    Not really, you want to go to the line to extend your possessions.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    every night.

  • maybe a quick 2 or got fouled since it’s a 5pt game

  • blubell

    Robbed him more than 2 pts.

  • sport

    Except refs rarely call fouls at the last seconds.

  • nodomo

    Lot of trash talking from the Clippers towards the end regarding Barnes’ foul on Lin. Glad to see Lin jawing back. Looks like something along the lines of Barnes “that was no foul” and Lin’s response “…please”

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Good news, no waiting, game tomorrow that means the season will end faster.

  • tin3ytina

    And gave him a to when he was obviously pushed out

  • at least 3 fouls got robbed

  • blubell

    I don’t like thieves

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Barn is just being jealous, forgive him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL @psalm234:disqus Since JLin is 14pts/5asts, am I winning this poll????

  • blubell
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    We all got that from shaving all the time.

  • blubell

    I kinda gave up. No chance to catch up with #1 LOL.

  • blubell

    Is Barnes your razor? lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Just have fun here while dealing with shameless Lakers:-)

  • sport

    Checked stats Lin got 14 points in only 24 minutes with 1BLOCK, 2 rebounds, 6-6 FTs, I’ll take it! Been saying it, Lin needs to keep making at least 1 block shot, want him to be the no.1 PG in both total block shots and block shots per 48 minutes! Breaking that false narrative that he can’t defend!

  • hehe.. maybe you will.
    I’ll check later

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    The sole on the adidas maybe does not have the grip Nikes have.

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    Lol yeah I think so too.

  • especially those wearing stripes and know Vegas odds

  • Rick Johnson
  • joyce ward

    Lin played his game tonigght. Stayed within the limitations of his game and was a game changer down the stretch. He gave the Clippers a lot of headaches duirng the end of the game.Not worried about lin’s next contract, he is set for a good contract with a good contending team or him leading a team to contention. Clarkson just proved that he is a scoring guard and nothing else.

  • TTNN

    CLIPRs players complains about every call.

  • joyce ward

    If you notice the Clipppers were really focused on lin and nobody else.

  • Brent Yen

    You shoot 3s if you are out timeout.

  • TTNN

    he got blocked 3 times today. 🙁

  • Brent Yen

    I know, I am laughing at refs. They obviously just wanna go home

  • CJSHYY

    They knew if Lakers would win all bc of Lin.

  • Grace Nsns

    that’s why JC got a bounce back game.

  • sport

    Chris Paul and Rivers weren’t going to let that rookie show them up. I hope more teams game plan for the purposely hyped “rookie of the month”.

  • blubell
  • CJSHYY

    Also CP3 & Clippers were more easy on JC.

  • Brent Yen

    That is expected…

  • blubell

    Because they respect Jeremy but not JC.

  • sport

    Deandre Jordan is there, that’s expected.

  • sws94

    They didn’t pressure him as much. Clarkson played ISO ball too much. I didn’t like his approach much this game. His stats look better than he played.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Byron Scott is not that stupid. Scott wanted the win badly so he put Lin back in, for final 5 minutes. Lin was playing point guard because Scott knows Lin is his best PG on Lakers and his best player.

  • blubell

    You’re right. Can’t let the Lakers take away our fun 🙂

  • sws94

    Lin is more dangerous because he can lead the team on to runs with doing more than scoring.

  • joyce ward

    They know that that they can shut down Clarkson at anytime. Lin made the Clippers compete tonight.

  • Brent Yen

    This game would turn around completely if JC can get rid of the ball sooner.

  • sport

    All opposing coaches respect JLin except his own coach. Can’t wait for JLin to phone Mike’D and tell him we really need to reunite, I’ve had enough of these hater coaches!

  • CJSHYY

    But why he pulled out Davis? I guess he still wanted to loss.

  • blubell
  • HeroBallJLIN

    Yes of course Davis would be better in but Black was warmed up and was playing well tonight.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    In terms of dirtiness, he is on par with Tony Allen

  • Brent Yen

    Kelly is not in game shape at all, and he played 37 minutes…

  • blubell
  • sport

    Tanking key piece. I’m sure every time Kelly misses an open shot, Lin misses Novak!

  • joyce ward

    GM’s and coaches in the league know that lin is a game changer….just saying…

  • Brent Yen

    I like Kelly, I hope he will have a good summer to turn things around. Lin is not gonna feeding him next yr.

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    Of course

  • akgul

    Good game from Lin some errors he made along the way but all around good game…Clarkson had a good game aswell individually…as a teammate not so much…

  • blubell

    what about Psycho T?

  • Brent Yen

    Most of the time he was being pushed.

  • Brent Yen

    M…good Q….I am not sure

  • Brent Yen

    I just realized JC took 17 shots…

  • sport

    Except how many are will to give the Asian guy the keys to the team besides Mike’D?

  • Brent Yen

    Those who really wanna win

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! His good stats was not surprised bc he always took lots of shots. Wait until Kobe is back & Randle…

  • blubell

    so did Kelly.

  • Brent Yen

    Kelly took a lot of wide open shots tho. Well…he was open for a reason, I know I know….lol

  • Alain Gervais

    it was 16 by halftime so atlas he slowed down lol

  • Brent Yen

    LOL WTH

  • blubell

    1/8 from the 3 point line… a lot of the wide open -_-

  • Brent Yen

    Lin really needs REFs’ protection for challenge bigs like DJ or Ibaka.

  • Brent Yen

    oh yay…..

  • blubell

    So he didn’t take any shots until that pass from Jeremy for a wide open three? lol.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol i just remembered it was kelly with 16 by haif i remember cause of all the misses. jc didn’t shot much in the fourth i noticed. although scott took the ball away from him.

  • Alain Gervais

    i was wrong mixed kelly with him he was at 8-9 by haif took a lot in the 3rd 1 or 2 in fourth

  • JoeTeam

    yep, he has promise but this team and how they play messed with him, I think.

  • blubell

    If he doesn’t get waived first…

  • JoeTeam

    he cannot, he is trying for his own or an easy score for and assist.

  • blubell

    Highlights from footwearfoot

  • sport

    Yes even more than Young’s average which is 13 shots. In fact start players take average of 12-15 shots per game! Lin really needs to do the same and look out for himself!

  • blubell
  • Chipdip

    Paul, OK but does it work at all for the Lakers?

  • blubell

    ha ha ha… well he is the star of the team right?

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Nobody on Lakers take hits and takes charges like Lin, nobody. Lin is definitely the toughest Laker. He has the scars to prove it.

  • JoeTeam

    at 25 secs, Lin through the legs beautiful move that gets him major separation from Barnes. That’s the kind of no-fancy moves that win games then you need it.

  • LAJane

    Eeks…I never thought of that. “If you can’t stop him playing basketball, then just switch to rugby.”

  • sport

    I’d rather they played Kelly than Lazy Hill, really can’t stand that player. Never seen a center who doesn’t want to play under the rim and just shoots mid jumpers all day, doesn’t know how to box out and can’t play PnR! Dude wants to be PF then play PF not Center!

  • JoeTeam

    … we got the call & we got the ball!

  • blubell

    His head and heart is in the right place. Always thinking about the team.

  • Brent Yen

    Those injuries really was unfortunate for him. He is completely out of shape

  • JoeTeam

    yep, no set role, no set way to play, no set teammates, just random. Hard to stay focused and get on track for being reliable. That also says a lot for Lin’s focus and concentration – v admirable. His spiritual life probably helps a lot.

  • Brent Yen

    Anyway, I feel Kelly is done for the NBA.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Is Lin going for that do too?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL JC is getting very good in isoing “pg.” Learn from the best — KB.

  • tin3ytina

    why keep asking this question? Lin could care less about lakers rivalry with any team. if anything, Lin’s biggest rival will be the Lakers soon. my goodness..

  • It’s Lin’s way of saying, “I’m OUTTA here” LOL

  • Brent Yen

    biggest rival…? LOL Laker is not even a legit NBA team

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop. Not giving the power to Lakers, BS, KB, haters, doubters… for taking away my fun of watching JLin. Learn from the best — JLin. Look at how he smiles when he takes those free throws:-)

  • tin3ytina

    after lin hit 2 of those 3’s in the beginning, i think defense shifted to lin, not clarkson. then, when clarkson was on the floor without lin, defense shifted on clarkson. towards the end of 4th quarter, defense locked in on lin, but he was able to do well by drawing smart fouls.

  • Brent Yen

    Lin was never left open, before or after the 3 tho. The only difference is they were afraid of his drives more.

  • tin3ytina

    hahahah true true. bad choice of words from me. but he will still make sure lakers get crushed next year by his team. sure of it.

  • blubell

    He sure is good at crushing his former teams 🙂

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • tin3ytina

    sad he couldn’t do that to rockets this year due to this crappy lakers team. i’m sure he wanted to.. 🙁

  • Brent Yen

    Where can you ask for a team player like this? Maybe only Sacre are on the same level…lol

  • blubell
  • sport

    Nah he’s going for the Steve Nash rocker long hair style in his prime LOL.

  • tin3ytina

    his drives can be lethal if defense doesn’t stop him.

  • Kianainhi

    Dirtiest plyer is Hollins. I recall that was his name. He was the one who kicked Lin in the chest when Lin was going down.

  • When was this?
    Are they celebrating Kobe not sitting on the bench & marginalizing them as bad products?

  • Brent Yen

    THe reason why it is lethal is because defense has to do something to stop it, but can’t.

  • tin3ytina

    omg, imagine the look on kobe’s face if they celebrate like this during game. such a mood killer!

  • blubell
  • ah .. yes, this is the beauty of team-ball.
    No Diva-ball

  • blubell

    From Lakersground.

    Lin — — He got leveled by Griffin to take a charge in transition and was also nailed in the face on a reach by Barnes, leaving a long scratch. Throw in a few more bumps to the floor and Lin will feel this one tomorrow. Painful. He sank a couple of threes in this one, but nothing came easy. He had to scratch and claw to get his tonight. Good overall aggression. We ran Buycks at backup PG, but Lin and Clarkson both play that PG/SG role pretty well together when on the floor, where they can stick to their strengths and pick their spots pretty fluidly. “We were just in attack mode all night,” Lin said, liking their assertiveness.

    The Stats: He scored 14 points on 3-10 shooting (2-4 from three, 6-6 from the line) to go with 2 boards, 5 assists, 1 block, 3 turnovers and 1 foul in 24 minutes. He was a -5.

    The Action: He swished a three off the split action for the Lakers first score. He missed a wing three. He swished an open wing three in early offense. He crossed over a man badly but was rejected at the rim by Jordan (extra pass there would have been nice). He attacked the paint and bounced to Black for the dunk. He tried to put on the brakes in the paint and coughed up the ball. He airballed a step-back jumper. Nice setup in a tight space to Black on the baseline for FTs. Quick first step to get into the lane and draw FTs with the shotclock low, he made both. He missed a wing three. He scored 8 points on 2-6 shooting.

    Second Half: He attacked and threw a pass away, getting off balance with no call. He kicked out to Wes for three. Quick attack in early offense and he scored a lefty layup. He circled through the lane and no-looked to Black for the slam. He was stripped on a drive. Wow, he took a hard foul from Griffin in transition to stop a hoop, painful. He attacked and was called for stepping on the line, he yelled at the ref for the no call (I like it). Bad off-balance 20-footer with 20 seconds left (I don’t like it), we were lucky to get it back. He was fouled on an inbounds with 15.7 seconds left, he made both FTs. Quick attack baseline on an inbounds for more FTs with 11.2 seconds left, he made both. He was blocked on a drive when we needed a three.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    BS on Jeremy Lin ” he played ok, he was aggressive, made FTs, no one’s shots were particularly falling for the team, no one played great”

  • John Lee

    Hint hint…Jeremy’s so good at this!

  • Sophie Paris

    We’d shoot you in front Byron lol

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Translation: Our head coach doesn’t play each player in a position to succeed.

  • Sophie Paris

    He always has nice things to say about the opposite teams. Hehe

  • teyling

    Hint: our coach does not know what is players positioning ie no game plan strategies…

  • Sophie Paris

    ‘MFW my gf kisses another guy on kisscam’ xD

  • Sophie Paris

    In 5 games he’ll talk!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Byron Scott wants to advertise JC as the future of Laker as much as he wants; giving him more minutes and putting him in a position to succeed. JC basically has been playing with the same players in practice.

    Jeremy is always the one who is moved around and most notably away from his favourite target Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer. Jeremy still gets to play but Boozer and Davis are all deprived of their play time. Byron set them up with D-leaguers.

    Byron Scott is good at making some players look good in stats. The only thing that he couldn’t is to win the game because it’s up to the opposition.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Sure glad that Lin’s recovering. From what I can see it, he’s still not 100%. His energy level is still not there yet.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    DeAndre Jordon has targeted on him but Jeremy made him pay several times by passing off to Black for dunks.

  • Sophie Paris

    I’d like to see that

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    so much the better.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Good that JLin was able to hit couple 3’s in the very early of the game:-) Glad that another game and day have gone:-)
    5 more games
    7 more days to free from Lakers imprisonment

    2015-04-07 Lakers vs Clippers

  • John Lee

    No worries @MoominFloren and @Yascar, there’ll be plenty of things to celebrate in the near future.

    Ex: D’Antoni going to Team X, Lin signing with team X/Y/Z, BS getting fired, etc.

  • John Lee

    You got it! Lin did his best to say it without actually saying it.

  • JW

    too bad reporters didn’t do the follow up question. “So do you think BS is putting you guys in a position to succeed?”

  • orLinaryjoe

    All of the above except D. Lin should always shoot the ball when there is a good look. He went to Harvard and tiger mom raised a good test taker With high bball IQ.

  • orLinaryjoe

    DB is always fair in analysis. Now the lounge forum, uggg.

  • orLinaryjoe

    BS encouraged him to shoot until he got shot in the back. I would actually like him, just not following through tho.

  • orLinaryjoe

    “Heck no, I ain’t gonna kiss Boozer!”

  • sws94

    In some ways Lin is saying the Lakers are outcoached in many games. Here he says they do a great job in putting players in a position to succeed where it’s hard for him to say that Scott does anything positive for his own team. That is, his own team for the time being. I think Scott knows Lin doesn’t think highly of him as a coach, but practically very few do except for the rookies and D-league players.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Sacre actually sank a 3 and a hook shot. Could’t believe it last night. Almost sank the tanker!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Lakers have many rivals. We all know how teams they can’t beat with this coach.

  • Acbc

    UCLA could be their rival….maybe, if they actually get a coach. Lol

  • ViNuyork

    w/ BS negative IQ, i wonder if he realizes dis is the shot he was looking for in his foxhole..goog job JLin, hit him w/ ur harvard IQ right inside ur locker room aka foxhole 🙂

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    For instance they don’t let Reddick to play point guard or CP3 to shooting guard.

  • BobbyH

    When a person made a remark like this, that implies he would do the same thing in that situation.

  • joyce ward

    I like this interview, especially when one reporter asked lin was he ok, and kind of smiled and said the usual complaints and that it was part of the game. I liked the fact that he was very matter of fact when asked how did Clarkson play.Also reporters asking about FA, because Lin is not giving that “I would love to come back to the Lakes”…LOL

  • Rookie75094

    The biggest Jlin hater was at the game last night….adam silver. …that is why the racist reference were over the top against Jlin. … F!!! Them all!!!

  • Rookie75094

    The main one that will shoot him in the back would be kobe…. Jlin will just pray for him in front of his face.

  • TTNN

    no, BS put you in a fox hole.

  • Rookie75094

    Yeah they banned me… so I don’t go there anymore.

  • Marie Simon

    Is he really ? Then Jeremy is totally against all odds, amongst all races as well as religion. Jeremy a full pledge Christian, Asian, Harvard grad plus his personalities and traits are all factors that detriment his success in the world of NBA. I still believe that Jlin will have a major impact in NBA and our country as a whole. Slowly but surely he’s changing people’s mindset about races, religion, however it will take a great deal of effort for him and I hope he won’t fumble. Jlin is huge, bigger than NBA and his followers will be countless.

    I also thought it strange that lin said he won’t talk about FA until in the middle or end of April.

  • CJSHYY

    He seemed to be in good mood in last night’s post game interview. Maybe I am over thinking… he said this is my first year here in…. I hope he didn’t mean more to come..?!

  • BobbyH

    I think he said August.

  • dolphin2k2

    I think BS was trying to take pressure off JC by having Lin around.

  • CJSHYY

    No, April end of season.

  • sws94

    April, end of season.

  • BobbyH

    Yes, I rechecked. End of April it is.

  • TTNN
  • joyce ward

    Yeah he seemed to be. Also it was strange when he said end of April, but the playoffs will be going on up until May. Also Silver was at the game last night, i hope he took note of the non fouls on lin last night.

  • joyce ward

    Did you listen to it?

  • CJSHYY

    I think he will not really say which team he will go more like what he wants from the team, leave it open staff like that…

  • joyce ward

    I agree

  • TTNN

    yes, a little section about Jeremy. Baxter Holmes was pretty careful, trying to clean up for Byron, but still admit the truth. He did say that every one can see this is not the right system for Jeremy, if Jeremy is under a different coach he could be a very solid player. He was saying that we could see confidence is slipping away from Jeremy….

    Praise JC a lot for sure, also saying that JC is in great position and he is making full out of it, saying that JC is okay to play through his mistakes, since the team has nothing to play for, so he could do a lot of things other rookie do not have the opportunity to do. They talked about the draft pick, free agents, whether people want to play with Kobe or not….And does not feel Byron is on hot seat….. Talked about Kobe was shooting for MJ record at the beginning of the year, and Byron just let him.

    I think he is fair, maybe not a Lin fan but not a Lin hater either.

  • Maknusia

    Thanks!…Genuine comments on Kobe and how he plays…and How Scott let Kobe to do whatever he wants, even though it was effecting LAL and their players

  • TTNN

    yeah, I think he was fair.

  • CJSHYY

    I think from a reporter point of view, he is fair in most of the parts… I really think FO still wants Lin & maybe will surprise lots of people if they offer Lin contract to stay… Whatever … I still hope Lin will not stay but FA is so unpredictable….

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lin is the only player from Lakers who never said “I would love to come back to the Lakers….”?!

  • Maknusia

    Yeah…I too liked the way he re-caped JLin’s performance…and saying…” I dont if the situation from the beginning was setup for Jeremy to succeed” he gave credit to Pablo’s article as well…

  • FrankW

    Why is that Kelly (3-17) get 37 minutes while Black 22 minutes, Lin 24 and Davis 23? Johnson with 40 minutes before fouling out replaces the injured Ellington with maximum minutes from now on? Would last nights results be different if Davis starting and Kelly coming off the bench? Somehow I don’t see the coach want to win games, even home games.

  • CJSHYY

    They are tanking what’s why… no need to use normal good coach will do to think why BS didn’t do it?! BS is BS.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Because BS is not just a moron, he’s a stubborn too.

  • CJSHYY
  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    Sounds like he got in trouble with comments about the team and now he is trying to do damage control…LOL

  • Maknusia

    lol…the players are the one who are frustrated!

  • CJSHYY

    I think so & I really can’t stand him at all. Hope FO can really fired him after this season end.

  • Maknusia

    they most likely need to tank next season as well, so I dont think they would fire him…but you never know…lets see

  • joyce ward

    If Lakers tank another year, they won’t have any fans left, especially the ticket buying fans..LOL

  • CJSHYY

    Somehow I think Lakers FO will surprised everyone in this FA. Just like they never said anything but sent out Linsanity DVD for fans?! Really can’t wait for FA to come bc it sure will be more interesting than listen to BS talk. LOL!

  • CJSHYY

    I think so. In the past, road game w Lakers always sell well but not anymore…

  • Maknusia

    sure…pretty much like NYK….

  • joyce ward
  • chan c

    Lin made it competitive at the end.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Nice young man but how many more out there haven’t read the truth?

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward

    Lin is one of their targets.

  • Brent Yen

    No more April fools? lol

  • Linja

    In his small capacity brain, this guy spews out words without going through that little brain of his. That is what low IQ does to him. He always says things that should not have come out of a COACH.

  • CJSHYY

    But I don’t get why Lin has to be their backup?! smh!

    “Right now we don’t exactly know the market for Lin’s services in free agency, and Dallas probably doesn’t want him as their starter even if Rondo walks, but with J.J. Barea coming off the books Lin should definitely be in play for the backup spot.”

  • joyce ward

    I just think that they have not seen lin really play. His views seeem like the old narrative on lin.

  • Rick Johnson

    Kelly offered no resistance, Griffin could do anything he wanted.

  • CJSHYY

    I know… Even I think the system will fit well w Lin but not sure Cuban is really that high on Lin or not? I know Cuban had always said nice about Lin but he never gave him the chance after Linsanity. Have to wait & see then… This FA is more & more interesting now. Can’t wait.

  • Playing Kelly with poor 3-17 shooting is definitely an obvious Tanking move. Too obvious, I might say.

  • TTNN

    they will be stupid not to consider Lin. At this stage, Lin’s market price is not that high, and teams might think they could get a bargain. Lin should fit in any team very good as the third guard, and have the capability to step up as starting guard and have the capability to carry the team when needed and give a chance. Just think what kind of security Lin could provide if the coach could use him right.

    I really wish he could go to a championship caliber team this summer. Instead of looking for starting position, as that could change…..

  • If we watched the highlights, it’s interesting to see that only 1 player got up from the bench to cheer for Lin 3 times when he made the 2 threes and a beautiful assist for the dunk in the 1st quarter.

    He sat next to Sacre. I think it’s Jabari Brown. I think he knew he owed Lin for giving him the balls to secure a 2-yr contract.
    Lin’s always good to his teammates on the bubble since he’s been there before.
    I hope all his good deeds will be rewarded richly with great team/coach next season.

  • TTNN

    I don’t know. I totally could see Lakers will have a hard summer. Just look at their highest target: Love and Rondo, and they over lap with their current best young player, Randle and Clarkson. Either one comes in will hinder the young player’s development, and neither one is an no brainer for the team that could carry the team far. Laker’s real season is next summer, they want to keep the space open for next summer so that super stars could come with his own friends, so they could sign a group of them as a package, no team could offer that.

    And for Lakers to do that, they could not lock their space to middle level players, so Lakers will be like this year, if they could not hit their target, they lost the opportunity for players like Lin. They will not wait for them, and I don’t think they want to go to lakers to fill gap, and got replaced once their super star get in.

  • Alain Gervais

    lin will have to fight to start anyway honestly. but i think he can and will do it. with a great coach like the mass coach he will win out like the knicks days. bad coaches cant tell talent from scrubs.

  • Rick Johnson

    For a backup spot.

  • 7iger

    Nah, the Lakers deserve to keep BS since Lin is leaving.

  • Game 78 vs DEN is open
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g78-lal-den-game-threadbest-coachteam-poll/

    Only 5 games are left before Jeremy can focus on his summer Free Agency!

    It’s great to see Lin got his legs back as he drained 2 threes to start the game vs Clippers. Although Byron continued to mess with his minutes playing Jeremy only 5 min in Q1 and benching in Q2 as he got hot, Jeremy still finished with 14pts/5asts as he managed to get a lot of FTs towards the end of the game

    Let’s continue the new Coach and Team Poll to see where fans want to see JLin go next season

    Continue to give your best, Jeremy! Only 5 games left to leave Byron in his imaginary foxhole worrying about which player will shoot him in the back (Young/Hill/Boozer?) LOL

  • JoeTeam

    You might be right, there was a role for him on a losing team. He’s had enough unproductive minutes it will be hard for him to come back unless he goes to another country and comes back in one or 2 years with a different track record.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    JLin is def a focal point by opposing team thats for sure. Lin can make the biggest impact on team.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    I think most of the time Lin just was sliding because his shoes did not provide enough grip. Lin’s athelticism requires a higher end shoe that can withstand his lateral movements.
