G79 MIN @LAL Game Thread+Best Coach/Team Poll

Thank God the MRI results didn’t reveal injuries on JLin’s left knee.

Jeremy should get plenty of rest if he still wants to play in any of the last 4 games of the season. Knowing his competitive and perfectionist nature, Jeremy probably hopes to have a strong performance to end his season on a high note to start his Free Agency campaign. Playing 1 or 2 games against Sacramento Kings to audition in front of Coach George Karl would be one good way to start the FA.

Keep Linning, Jeremy!  😎

  • Arsenium12 .

    Go JLin! … playing or not.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    JLin is free!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The troll has been banned

  • Yascar

    Thank you as always.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks! I can stop to delete the posts now:-)

  • CJSHYY

    Good. Really hate to read their nonsense post.

  • tin3ytina

    thank you!

  • MoominFloren

    Yes! Lin is fine. That’s just a move to cover up Dnp! Lin, please take a good rest, have fun in offseason, and come back strong and destroy the Tankers!

  • CJSHYY

    I think so. As for MRI, probably need it for before the contract talk. From Trudell…. Maybe more DNP to come. I don’t care he gets it now.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Agree 100% KB and BS are exposed for who they are. Let power struggle between KB/BS and Mitch/Jim continues!!!!!!!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    MRI-gate is just a coverup for DNP-CD. Nothing more and nothing less.

  • joyce ward
  • CJSHYY

    I really hate BS… can’t believe the whole Lakers org (not only team but also players. ) got mess up by him like this? smh!

  • thanks for doing so :]
    1 chance of grace then it’s OUT for good

  • MoominFloren

    I guess Lin will sit in the remaining games, they are using Lin to boost the ticket sales and may put him on day to day list

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CJSHYY

    I think w this re-evaluated… I guess they have to see when they can win the game then maybe Lin can come back to play…?! But I will not surprised he will be DNP to the end of season.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    The troll posted another 2 quick ones in this new thread. I deleted it almost straightaway. No need to give the troll a chance. It was warned on the other thread. So the throll knows it’s coming:-)

  • 1mtoldman

    hmm what i want to know is who is this melody ting? she sounds real smart.

  • tin3ytina

    i hope jlin fans planning on going to lakers game today know that he will not be playing. wouldn’t want them to waste their money to watch d-leaguers play. ultimate tank game tonight.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    This so-called “re-evaluated” is just want to sell more tix so that JLin fans will want to take the chance to see him play.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOLOL

  • CJSHYY

    I believe only the fans who bought the tickets early that will still come to the games otherwise I doubt anyone will pay the money for lousy game w uncertain that Lin will play or not. Glad Lakers got what they asked for it. W lots of empty seats due to tank.

  • Thanks, I was also waiting to hit the blacklist button :]
    Somehow I knew the troll wouldn’t be able to stop himself.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. Maybe the oversea ones still go but not many from the local ones.

  • @1mtoldman:disqus is right.
    Reading Melody Ting’s tweets makes me smarter, it’s like staying at Holiday Inn for 2 days :]

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    hehehe. I didn’t hit the blacklist button. Don’t believe I have hit one thus far:-) Haven’t deleted anyone post except accidentally once until the previous thread and this thread:-)

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! This year they sure lose big for their income…. BS should really be fired.

  • 1mtoldman

    after 5 years of steady attendance (8th in the league) lakers are slumped to 13th this year.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOL Thanks! Don’t make me blush!!! Just want to share my sense of being “sarcastic.”

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! Buss family should thank Kobe & BS for this result. LOL!

  • joyce ward
  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    Totally off topic, but I think it’s ok to be off topic today since Jeremy’s not playing.
    One of my favorite Mark Cuban interviews:

    Rose: One basketball question. I’m doing a profile of Jeremy Lin. What do you think of Jeremy Lin?

    Cuban: The Mavs were the first team to sign him as a free agent, and we loved him. He’s a kid that was fearless. He was obviously smart having got into Harvard. He was a lot more athletic than people expected. We really looked at him as a potential as another Steve Nash. We wanted to sign for summer league, wanted to sign him to a contract for the Mavs, but he wanted to go play close to home and he grew up in the Bay Area so he went to sign with the Golden State Warriors and the rest is history.

    Rose: Can he be another Steve Nash?

    Cuban: Yeah, he absolutely can. He’s that good. He’s got that type of talent. But, part of what made Steve Nash great, when Nash went from the Mavericks to the Suns and became MVP, it was a system that he just excelled at. So, Jeremy has got to play in the right environment with the right players and he can be a star.

  • good, you’re warming up hehe..
    I have patience for Lin fans and respectful non-Lin fans but not for trolls.

  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    Cuban was interested in Jeremy even before Linsanity, when he was still an unknown coming out of college. He MUST still be interested in Jeremy today. I’m sure Jeremy will get a lot of offers this off season. Rick Carlisle’s system would be perfect for Jeremy since it’s heavy in pick and rolls. Tyson is great at setting screens and Parsons could help spread the floor.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    NBA rules intended to help weak teams and/or small market improving to stay competitive with other teams. It’s the teams manipulating the good rules. What need to change is 1st pick should never be protected. Once you trade it, it’s gone.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL You have more patience than I’m. Guess we are getting more trolls now until next season. So, I might have the chance to do “blacklist” soon:-)

  • joyce ward
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Understand the reasons but teams are obviously taking advantaged of it. They need to tighten the rules or change the rules. So, if a team is obviously tanking like Lakers, they should be punished seriously and not be rewarded like to be banned from coaching or managing NBA for life. If there is such rule, no coaches and/or GMs dare to do it.

  • I also like this line
    Cuban: The Mavs were the first team to sign him as a free agent, and we loved him

    I hope Cuban still has that pride of being the first to ‘discover’ Lin. And he didn’t seem to resent Jeremy for going to the GSW home team, also Lin would’ve been toiling a lot in the D-League team in Dallas anyway.

    Perhaps it will be homecoming to Dallas Mavericks to the 1st team that put faith in Jeremy Lin after all!

    We’ll wait and see while eating our popcorn 😀

  • ah, gotta love a normal basketball fan who can see what JLin brings!

  • JustSayNo2HardensIso

    Haha. Love this! Didn’t Rick Carlisle also say something positive about Jeremy recently?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    When did this interview take place?

  • joyce ward

    Yep. These are the fans that actually go the games. BTW my niece, her dad, and my sister went to the fist game they played with the Cippers,where the Clippers blew them out. My sister said that fans were mad that lin didn’t play that much and that Clarkson was taking too many shots.LOL

  • JJ Hui

    How many did you ban? There are some bipolar, seem normal but sounded like troll at times!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Teams are taking advantaged because they’re competing too. All punishments must come with strong evidence not by fans’ feeling. By the end of the day, NBA is looking out for itself first.

  • JJ Hui

    Thank you!

  • John Lee

    What just happened while I was sleeping? Now I know how @Michael feels. 🙂

    Who’s the casualty?

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Open minded fan.

  • oh wow.. that 28pt massacre?
    I’d have gone mad watching that game too :]

    I feel bad true Lakers fans are being hijacked of true Linsanity experience due to bad politics

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    I do believe had Lin been given the same kind of support Clarkson is getting, the Lakers could have gone far up at 7 to 10 seed

  • recently? I don’t remember but there were some great quotes in 2012-13

  • JJ Hui

    Seeing him and KB by the courtside make me sick, that bad!

  • Here’s the old Rick Carlisle quote in Jeremy’s 1st year in HOU (Oct 2012)
    @JustSayNo2Hardensiso:disqus, there might be another one in 2013

    Great to reread them again. It shows how much a smart coach like him sees Jeremy (even after a bad exhibition game)

    http://sportsblogs.star-telegram.com/mavs/2012/10/mavs-want-to-control-jeremy-lin-tonight.html

    “He’s an aggressive player, he shoots the outside shot, he’s a great penetrator and he’s a great pick-and-roll player,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said. “He’s got a lot of things going for him and you’ve got to work in a lot of different areas to keep him under control.’’
    Quote:
    “We tried to sign him,’’ Carlisle said. “But someone else offered him a longer deal.’’
    Quote:The San Antonio Spurs held Lin to just four points on 1-of-10 shooting during their 116-107 win over the Rockets on Sunday afternoon in Houston. But Carlisle saw that as an aberration.

    “I think it’s the exhibition season and I don’t think it’s a big deal,’’ Carlisle said. “The guy is a really good player and he’s a guy you’ve got to game-plan for.’’

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Those are powerful quotes. So good to hear that from a coach with a championship ring.

  • well, we can’t really tell. 1 person can open many accounts
    only the bad troll ones stay there permanently.

    true Lin fans get many second chances :]

  • Idk but it’s a certifiable troll LOL
    not @Michael:disqus for sure, we keep the nice trolls hehe

  • bolero

    like Brent? lol. jk.

  • JJ Hui

    Thank you Psalm!

  • John Lee

    Who are we talking about? Curiosity is killing me!

  • Rookie75094

    Now that Jlin is ok ( Thank you Lord)….. I can focus my energy trashing the rockettes and rondo….hehe

  • real-dsb

    Cuban should replace Ellis with Lin

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    No idea. The troll was using different name in each post but it was an obvious troll because of the content.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Please don’t do it too much here. Don’t want to read those too much:-)

  • yup, it really showed his intelligence to really know JLin’s strength.
    I’m imagining Carlisle and Parsons have casual conversations where Lin’s name would randomly come up

  • 1mtoldman

    just a random newbie 3 posts under different names obviously all from the same person all total trolling. alerted and then responded; attempted to continue over on this thread banned.

    no one you know.

  • real-dsb

    My favorite idea is by Adam Gold, a statistics PhD:
    The draft order is determined by the # of wins AFTER a team is eliminated from playoff contention.
    Read the article for more explanation: http://www.businessinsider.com/reverse-standings-tanking-2015-4

    It’s not perfect, but it’s way better than the current system.

  • real-dsb

    Great news about the MRI. Lin should shut it down the rest of the year. Nothing to play for.

  • JoeTeam

    it’s like taking finals early and then just having fun before moving home for the summer. Lin aced his finals, now let’s get a job worth having!

  • John Lee

    I had a similar idea, first 14 picks go to the non-playoff teams, top pick going to the highest ranking and last place getting 14th. This way the teams would fight hard to get higher picks. I don’t agree with only counting the number of wins AFTER a team has been eliminated, as this fails to stop teams who were determined to tank from the get go.

    What I have yet to decide is how to distribute picks 15 through 30 of the first round.

  • John Lee

    Trashing anyone is negative, and here we promote positivity, as in celebrating when the Rox’s opponents win big. LOL

  • Winner
  • tin3ytina

    Did you guys read the article on rondo by Baxter Holmes? Thought it was interesting..

  • tin3ytina

    Spurs big three should be the mvp. Plus Leonard. They’re so good

  • real-dsb

    Yes it does. Curry! =)

  • 1mtoldman

    funny. another possible opporutnity to be positive 2nite.

  • Winner

    championship ring> regular season mvp. 😛

    brook lopez 12

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    All set for Lakers to make an offer that can’t be refused.

  • Yascar

    Just read it. It’s very interesting. No wonder Kobe wants him. Rondo is an alpha, no doubt about that. People forget though that it’s a team sport. He can’t win by himself, and he certainly hasn’t been that effective in Dallas. All ball players have to work with some structure, otherwise the team ultimately loses. Period. Having said that, go get him Lakers. I’ve got the popcorn ready.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I can’t believe that a coach like Byron Scott did to a team. BS tore this team apart and messed it up inside out.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Boston, Brooklyn, Indiana all played as if they are possessed.

  • Yascar

    Guys, read the Rondo article by Baxter Holmes. That’s the kind of guy that Kobe wanted Jeremy to be. Good luck to them next season. The fireworks will be epic.

  • CJSHYY

    What did Baxter talk about Rondo? Pass only to Kobe? LOL!

  • John Lee
  • John Lee

    Nine min into 1Q, Spurs down by 12, Rox with 12 FTA, Spurs ZERO FTA. ‘Nuff said.

  • Filler-up

    I thought that was a well done article.

  • Grace Nsns

    no biggie, Spurs win this one I say.

  • 1mtoldman

    2 update: rox 15 fta’s, spurs zero; love that home cookin.

  • John Lee

    I have no doubt that Pops’ guys will fight through it, just that the crookedness of it all is absurd. 15 FTAs in one single quarter by Rox, and Spurs none. Too obvious.

  • Rick Johnson

    Lakers play the Mav’s Sunday. Think they will let him audition for his next team?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop. JLin is done for the season:-)

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Kobe sure wants Rondo to do well against Lakers. Don’t think Lin will play.

  • Rick

    Wow, that’s very well written.
    And I learned something new about Rondo.

  • tin3ytina

    I liked it. Good read

  • 1mtoldman

    if lin plays again it will be in sacramento.

  • tin3ytina

    Also didn’t know rondo was so smart. He’s also a thinker on court. We all know how bs feels about that lol

  • Rick Johnson
  • John Lee

    Fake drama, worse than Kristen Stewart’s acting.

  • Alain Gervais

    he will play next game likely

  • LAJane

    Very interesting profile of Rondo. Like tin3ytina says below, BS isn’t keen on players who think. Especially players who think orders of magnitude faster than him. Kobe might be having some floater wafting through his brain that he’d mesh with Rondo, but these two uber-alphas would last about 10 minutes together. Neither one has control over their intelligence or their emotions. (The polar opposite of Lin, who has the smarts and the emotion but does not let them run him around the mulberry bush). Actually, it wouldn’t surprise me if a motivation Kobe can’t acknowledge is that what he really wants to do is get Rondo into his web so he can do to one more talented player what he’s done to others…suck him in and then spit him out. Prove to himself that he really is the only MAN alive.

  • real-dsb

    finals mvp > championship ring > regular season mvp =)

  • Yascar

    This video is for free agency. Hello world! I’m not injured! Lol

  • LAJane

    Thanks SO MUCH for your vigilant moderating. We have a little paradise here thanks to you guys.

  • pandaboy99

    So Rondo is basially Shikimaru of Naruto lazy super genius

  • real-dsb

    “I don’t agree with only counting the number of wins AFTER a team has
    been eliminated, as this fails to stop teams who were determined to tank
    from the get go.”

    Yes, there is no perfect solution. But there would be very few teams that will tank from the start. For example, the Lakers were not tanking from the start. There may be teams that tank in the middle to be eliminated from playoff contention earlier. But once they are eliminated, they will be playing to win for the rest of the season.

    In your idea, I can see some bubble playoff teams tanking to not make the playoffs in order to get the #1 pick. They may figure that it’s better to get the #1 pick than to be #8 seed and get swept in the first round. Whereas legitimately bad teams who are not tanking may end up with a non top-10 pick. But still a better idea than current.

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! I hope the fans will boo BS. LOL!

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Its possible Lakers are deliberately trying to scare off potential suitors from bidding on Lin during FA. So Lakers can attain Lin on the cheap. Its obvious Lakers want to keep Lin. BS admitted Lin has been playing pretty ok which is a huge compliment coming from this man.

  • Alain Gervais

    lol rox crying saying spurs flopping. what irony.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Miraculous recovery! Just the other night he couldn”t play. Amen.

  • CJSHYY

    Of course, if they don’t want to keep Lin then why needs to pay 15M to get him?! If not for Kobe & BS then Lin sure will have a great season in Lakers. smh!

    Not watching the game. Is Lin on the bench or is he in the training room receiving “treatment”? Hope he doesn’t give an interview.

    I guess this is a D-league game again. lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Seem like NOP and OKC are fighting for the 8th spot on the west and Boston, Brooklyn and possibly Indiana and Miami are fighting for 7 & 8 spot in the east. All of them have 3 games left.

  • 1mtoldman

    i think lin is on the bench now in a suit but i can’t really tell well enuf lost my good feed and just got a sketchy jumpy feed. but it appeared he wasn’t on the bench at first then now in a suit which would make sense since he was working out (below) before the game previously.

    but if anyone else knows for sure has good feed would like to know the answer.

  • John Lee

    NOP, BOS, IND and SAS all won today, I’m so happy. Too bad SAC couldn’t beat OKC, but with 4 out of 5 I’m not complaining. 😀

  • John Lee

    Spurs at 3rd right now, will move up to 2nd if MEM loses today (now trailing Jazz by 6).

  • Rookie75094

    I think Jlin in in suit on the bench… I could be wrong though

  • 1mtoldman

    thats what i thought too; he wasn’t there when game started which would make sense cause he was out doing dribbling drills before game; would have 2 change.

  • C Chan

    You’re right, he’s on the bench.

  • Rookie75094

    Yup Jlin is in suit sitting behind Jordan hill

  • TTNN

    yeah, he is in the second row next to Ellington, behind Hill.

  • CJSHYY

    Second Row? Not w the players?

  • TTNN

    only Kobe in the first row with players.

  • CJSHYY

    Kobe was there… no wonder… smh! I guess Lin didn’t want to sit next to him.

  • TTNN

    Young in first row too.

  • HY C

    I don’t like to see him in suit on court <– brought back my bad memory of his first year in ROX, during playoff, I flew from NJ to HOU just to see him coming out of the locker room in suit, I was so disappointed.

  • blubell

    Price too, I think

  • CJSHYY

    Oh! But normally Players w suit all sit near the end of bench so it’s more likely have to sit together… Anyway, I am glad Lin doesn’t have to sit next to Kobe for the whole game.

  • Rookie75094

    Let’s go J!!!! I don’t care if you are on the bench…. you are still dominating game with your presence!!! hehe

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Is JLin the only player sitting at second row?

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Memphis is up by 3 now. Just looking at the scores:-)

  • TTNN

    no, with Ellington, Randle…

  • blubell

    no there are couple other players

  • CJSHYY

    I think probably bc he came in late so…

  • Rookie75094

    Jlin mere appearance is causing meltdown in cf ( at least I hope… hehe )

  • TTNN

    yeah, must be

  • CJSHYY
  • Kianainhi

    Not Price. I recall Price sitting next to coaches.

  • Jang

    Lin was actually sitting in the first row next to Kelly during the end of the 1Q, then Kobe came and Lin moved to the second row behind Hill…

  • bolero

    yup. I saw him too behind Hill.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • bolero

    JLIn could barely see because of Hill..

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh hello there Mr. Jeremy Lin in charcoal gray suit. We meet again….

    In this photo, Lin is the one standing in front of the guy in green (Swaggy P, I think)

  • Rookie75094

    I rather watch Jlin sitting on the bench out-shining kobe through out the game , than watching the game itself…hehe

    Just check box score, Davis was on for 6 min but no ball?!

  • John Lee

    Mavs in 2OT with Nuggets, hope they lose all remaining games so they’d get rid of Rondo.

    2 OT w Nuggets? That bad…LOL!

  • lleepar

    Rondo isn’t playing tonight. I don’t know if he’s injured or just being rested,

  • Rookie75094

    yup…even with rondo not playing in the game…hehe

  • Acbc

    Oh man please, I like Shikimaru. The guy uses his brain instead of his brawn. Rondo is nothing like him. Lol

  • CJSHYY

    But today no Rondo…

  • Rookie75094

    rested I think… not that will make him play any better… haha

  • orLinaryjoe

    “Ouch, the sharp knee pain made me jump up!”

  • John Lee

    He’s on rest tonight, but I assume he’ll play the remaining games, so I’m hoping Mavs lose all of those.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Believe the game is still on. It’s 143 v 139 in my screen with 2:04 left.

  • Rookie75094

    kobe is gone from the bench….. can’t handle Jlin brightness…hehe

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    144 (Dallas) v143 with 1.5 left.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Really??? Charmin KB!!!!

  • Alain Gervais

    cant see both

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    WOW Dallas won the game 144 v 143. Many people don’t want to hear this:-)

  • Rick

    Felton made the clutch 2 pt layup shot

    but with Felton? lol

  • Rookie75094

    J is still behind hill..next to ellington

  • Rookie75094

    no worry about fwlton… heck he is so insignificant .. I cant even spell his name correctly..hehe

  • Kianainhi

    This is too funny. Everyone discussing other games except the Laker game.

  • Rookie75094

    is it my imagination… the whole fan section behind J is just looking at him and not at the game action…. could be my imagination”” it would be so funny if nba tv camera just focus on Jlin with the game audio… probably would get high ratings…hehe

  • John Lee

    Irrelevant in terms of playoff standing, Mavs are locked in at 7th. And since Rondo didn’t play tonight, a W isn’t that bad.

  • Rick

    Lakers vs. Minny is just a pick-up type game

  • Rookie75094

    probably the only game left now

  • Rookie75094

    did I just heard billy mac says kelli Clarkson.. the singer?

  • Rookie75094

    oh pun intended…Kelly and Clarkson show

  • Rick

    3 games to go.
    I don’t think Minny and Philly plan to win any one of the three games.
    Therefore, Lakers are locked in the 4th worst position for the lottery draft

  • John Lee

    How about Jeremy (and) Clarkson?

  • CJSHYY

    Can’t believe they both played more than 34 min? Why I thought Lakers wants to loss this game?! Keep let them pad the stats?! Weird.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Love Kelly Clarkson………..the singer!

  • Acbc

    You’ll have to visit an Australian Holiday Inn to find out. Lol

  • sws94

    I’m watching Wiggins.

  • sws94

    Clarkson is helped by Black. They have some chemistry. If MN had any interior presence they may have been able to come back and tie the game up or even win it.

  • Rookie75094

    what a great team mate…Jlin high five Clarkson for the good assist

  • joyce ward

    I wonder why lin was out shooting in the beginning of the game, if he wasn’t going to play?

  • joyce ward
  • Rookie75094

    crowd cheering for tacos

  • CJSHYY

    I think to show to his fans or teams that he is OK. Nothing wrong w him. I just don’t get why Lakers win this game? I thought they don’t want to win?!

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOLOLOL Like Carlisle’s comment.

  • Rick

    I agree.
    It is not like the Nuggets are going to make playoff by winning this game

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Just want to let his fans and other orgs know he isn’t bothered by so-called “knee” pain or nothing wrong with him. It’s BS DNP-CD him.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Nice suit for Lin tonight. He’s upping his style game.

  • joyce ward

    3 more games & lin is outta this h*** hole.

  • joyce ward

    They have to give a good show at home games. They will play Dallas on Sunday. They are pretty comfortable at the 5th spot. They will get their draft picks. The thing is that Timber wolves are in a much better spot for the 1st and 2nd draft pick.

  • joyce ward

    I wander what Boozer sai that was so funny.

  • John Lee

    I *****ing hate the Lakers. I will not forgive them for what they’ve allowed KoBS to do to Jeremy this season…unless:

    1) Fired BS AND buyout Kobe.
    2) Offered Jeremy a five year contract north of 60M.
    3) State on written contract that Jeremy will be starting PG with ball-handling duty, never less than 32 minutes unless injured or ill.
    4) Heavy promotion and Jeremy getting to ASG and deep into playoffs.

    Only then, I would consider forgiving them, otherwise they’re dead to me, lower than the Rox. And that’s saying A LOT.

  • joyce ward
  • John Lee

    Technically that’d be a low-five.

  • CJSHYY

    I hate Lakers too. Why they will allow BS to mess up this team like this? smh! I think to most of the players in this team, this year is really bad for them special w contract year.

  • CJSHYY

    Don’t know why BS let starters to play such long min?

  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • joyce ward
  • John Lee

    BS is so full of it he might as well have said the same about Acie Law and the White Mamba.

  • CJSHYY

    Bc he is #1 draft.. BS tried to say that Lakers should build around their #4 draft?!

  • CJSHYY

    Are they going to trade Kelly? Package him now?

  • John Lee

    BS can get a standup comedian gig after Lakers fire him.

  • Kianainhi

    Well, all the starters except JLin.

  • tin3ytina

    Lol mark medina messed up on this tweet. Scott said rookie of the year, not mvp. At least, according to all the other reporters..

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Bc Kobe is so afraid of Lin will bring in Linsanity to LA.

    I really think it’s these players are all trade assets. That’s why they need good stats.

  • John Lee

    Well now, wouldn’t that be a slap in JC’s face?

  • John Lee

    Because Jeremy wasn’t in the starting lineup tonight.

  • CJSHYY

    JC has no chance. Wiggins is #1 draft.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Of course he isn’t. It’s an excuse BS use so that not receiving wrath from JLin fans.

  • Yascar

    Yup!

  • tin3ytina

    Yea. Lol.. Not surprising coming from bs. He keeps praising other teams players, not as much his own. He has player envy!

  • John Lee

    Not disagreeing with you, just dissing Lakers boasting JC to crazy levels.

  • John Lee

    BS is a brown-noser through and through. Reminds me of how canines sniff others’ rears.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CJSHYY

    I really think JC is trade asset.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • John Lee

    Or more accurately, trade bait.

  • CJSHYY

    Ellington.

  • CJSHYY

    I think so that’s why he got free ISO every game & tons of playing time.

  • Kianainhi

    Is that Wayne Ellington? He’s sitting to Lin’s left in second row.

  • Kianainhi

    And he can take all his fans and corporate sponsors with him.

  • you’re welcome. Good posters like you deserve good mods :]

  • hehe.. he has PhD degree LOL

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Every player gets one… When is Lakers exit interview?

  • blubell
  • Brent Yen

    I hope it is tomorrow, maybe?

  • Tim Pham

    what time should we come?

  • Brent Yen

    Given it is Lin we are talking about, You need to go now, and camp there. Might get some money if you sell some hot food. lol

  • blubell

    I’m planning on being there before 12.

  • blubell

    Profit… I love it 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    Haha! Normally after season end… Coming soon I think.

  • Brent Yen

    When I was young, my family and a lot of cars stranded on a mountain road because of landslide. There was a family start to sell instant noodle, because they have portable stove. Let’s just say the profit they made that day was beyond amazing.

  • real-dsb

    So it’s okay for Kobe to smile and crack jokes in a Lakers loss but his teammates can’t celebrate a win?

  • real-dsb

    LOL

  • real-dsb

    Lin’s not even going for hover hand LOL

  • Brent Yen

    It is not a win if he is not the reason for that win

  • real-dsb

    you called it! Dropped the Rockets from #2 to #6 seed

  • Kianainhi

    After the last game before players leave for off-season.

  • Tim Pham

    holy moly! do you think it’ll be that long? starts at 3pm

  • blubell

    I think last event the line started forming around 12 so…

  • Tim Pham

    crap. i won’t be able to make it till like 2:30. hope i can still see lin. if not, then i guess never cuz he’s leaving la lol

  • MoominFloren

    Love his show! This gonna be his last season with BBC.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Depending on the site and how the line is formed. Not sure you will have the chance to see him.

  • MoominFloren

    Banker Lin……about time for haircut

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    What is the point as most of them are one year deal anyway??

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS has been planning to replace Jeremy by boosting JC minutes and trying to make him look good just like what he tried on Kobe Bryant. The only thing that BS could not cheat on is getting more wins from the opposition. Just so happened Minnesota are doing the same things and they have put almost all their starters on the bench except the rookies. Laker got this win not because they are good but because the opposition did not use their better players.

  • Brent Yen

    THat is why I am asking…..seems…….unnecessary

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yep. What can you learn from BS??? Negative.

    Another note: Don’t believe JLin got one last year if my memory served me right.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Laker are locked in the 4th worst position no matter what Minny and Philly and NY did.

  • blubell

    He did the exit interview last year.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS from now on is trying to show how good the Laker is without Jeremy.
    That sore knee thing is just a cover up for DNP-CD.
    Byron is not playing Nick, Jordon Hill, and Boozer too.
    The only difference between the lineup used in the last Clipper game and this game is Jeremy.
    (Byron wouldn’t dare to use this lineup w/o Jeremy against the Clippers)
    Sure wish that JLin won’t come back to play for this coach.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Ask and see if Andrew Wiggins wants to play for him.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Really???!!! So my memory fails me:-( Thanks for the correction!

  • blubell

    Hmmm… why hasn’t Jeremy tweeted about this event…

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    2 of the best centers of Minnesota are sidelined. Laker was playing with their 3rd string center.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS really wants to say is Lakers should build around whomever he chooses. His choice is his job security, just like Chris Paul in the past.
    (The ultimatum is to build around him, Byron Scott.)
    This is what he has been trying to do. To stay in this franchise, he wants to build the team around him, himself, to add to his job security. Chris Paul did help him but the team owner fired him anyway.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    To get the stats.
    He only give less than 30 minutes to Jeremy to avoid giving Lin better stats.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Oh, I get it. The reason that Lin is taken to MRI test instead of just giving him a DNP may have something to do with the corporate sponsors of Lin.
    Without corporate sponsors, Lin may be just DNPed like Boozer and Jordon Hill.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Lin called Boozer ‘the brother’ in this team.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    more accurately from corporate sponsors who spent million dollars on the Lakers for Lin.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This Laker organization really stinks up the league.
    It will continue on their sinking for years with their favouritism and politics.

  • John Lee

    You sound like a Ferengi! You will make the Rules of Acquisition proud. LOL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • Kianainhi

    OK, you took it one step further. lol I was thinking of Maxxis Tires who follows Lin to every team. The advertising monies go straight to the franchise and not split among NBA teams like the jerseys. When Lin left Houston, the $$$ left with him. Also, his Adidas video has Lin wearing the Laker jersey even if its for a couple of seconds. Lakers org must realize Lin is free PR for the org. Who else on the team has sponsors/endorsement deals (besides Kobe)? Maybe Nick Young but I haven’t seen any.
    I don’t know specifics of next contract, but possibly his agents can use this as leverage in negotiating his salary. But then, cap space gets involved & I’m lost trying to understand it.

  • Kianainhi

    Silly thought….when Lin leaves the Lakers, will they change the jersey on his wax figure? lol

  • JoeTeam

    Think JLin’s tailor might want to consider a looser look at times – gives the man more power. Too tight = young, less comfort. JMHO. Looks v sharp, though, just saying because $ negotiations are coming up.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The whole organization and BS are stingy mess.
    Who would like to get involved with this black hole?
    God save Jeremy.

  • tin3ytina

    can’t wait! so curious where lin will end up though… hope he gets many offers

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS would try to avoid a blowout like the first game against the Clippers. How long this lineup will stay depends on the opposition which BS has no control.

  • tin3ytina

    it’s nice and looks sharp. looser = looks older. tight fitting is more modern. i like it~

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes. There will be a Lakers REALITY Show plus JLin FA show. Next 80 days will have many dramas/rumors… Won’t get ups and downs until JLin makes his decision.

  • JoeTeam

    That’s always been the case – younger guys wear tighter cuts. I’m just saying, a little loser, not the wide pot belly cut, gives a more self-assured swag. Having said that, Sean Connery’s suits in early James Bond were pretty tight.

  • tin3ytina

    oh possibly! men who know how to wear suits = thumbs up!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    BS is taking this team down with him but he of course will keep on throwing his players under the bus to acquit himself.

  • Filler-up

    Suit fit him well. Looks tailored. Young dudes like the tighter cut and shorter jackets. But JLin’s suit looks fine.

  • Filler-up

    OK, suit is a little too tight on Lin. High arm holds suggest tailored but the tailor cut it too tight. Lots of horizontal folds, especially behind the neck.

  • Filler-up

    The wax museum is in LA right? So they might just keep that jersey.

  • tin3ytina

    do you think he bulked up more on his upper body? it does seem tight in this photo, especially compared to ellington, but he is slightly leaning forward so that might be why. still looks good to me though! i like it~

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Brooklyn and Boston are at least 1.5 games ahead of the others in the East.
    Indiana and Miami are having the lightest schedule.
    Miami: TOR, ORL, @PHI
    Indiana: OKC, WAS, @MEM
    Boston is having the toughest schedule: CLE, TOR, @MIL
    Brooklyn seems to be in the driver seat to the playoff: @MIL, CHI, ORL

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nop it is in SF. Believe they can change the jersey with no prob. They change the one in China when JLin was traded from R to L last year.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Comparing Lakers with Boston and San Antonio, you can’t help but feel sorry for the Laker fans.

    Boston is on its way to playoff and their young players are great but Lakers got stuck with the old timers who refuses to let go.

    The Spurs with Tim Duncan is having a winning team every year and is on the rise with Kwahi Leonard. Tim Duncan passes the rein to Kwahi and is having his better years ahead of him winning. Kobe is going to be the losing factor for the Lakers for years to come.

  • Maknusia

    I think he likes to wear a little tighter than normal…had been him on similar wear since day one

  • Filler-up

    Ellington’s suit fits him well. Tight but not too tight. Everyone wants to look like TImberlake it seems.

  • Maknusia

    yeah…tell me about it….just cant wait for this drama to end

  • Maknusia

    so you are saying Lin is old fashioned and following 60s style?!…lol…kiddin 🙂

    “Byron Scott On Jeremy Lin: ‘He’s Thinking With A Point Guard Mentality’

    This season has not gone the way Jeremy Lin hoped it would when he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in the off-season. With Steve Nash being ruled out for the season, the opportunity was there, but Lin struggled with inconsistency, losing his starting role to Ronnie Price after only 19 games.

    Lin, however, remained a key piece of the Lakers and he began playing some of his best basketball of the season in March. Head coach Byron Scott has been critical of Lin at times during the season, but according to Mark Medina of the LA Daily News, Scott praised Lin for his improvement in the second half of the year:

    “From a point guard standpoint, I’m still old school,” Scott said. “It’s a new age point guard where they score first than pass first. But the next step for Jeremy as far of running the team, which I think he did a pretty good job in the second half of the season, is just that. He’s thinking with a point guard mentality in getting guys involved first.”

    Scott has come under fire at times this season for criticizing players consistently in the media. Nick Young recently spoke out saying he has felt unfairly criticized and Lin has been a constant subject of Scott’s criticisms as well.

    Whether or not Lin is one of those players Scott wouldn’t feel comfortable in a ‘foxhole’ with is up for debate, but there is no denying Lin’s improvement. Scott wouldn’t talk about Lin’s future with the team as he prefers to finish out the season first, but Lin has definitely proven himself as a capable player.

    After Lin left NY, my nephew’s wife who used to work for Madam Tussaud’s in NYC told me “He was there in Knick uniform until he went to Houston”. I was not sure from her vague response if she meant they changed his uniform, or removed him altogether.

    But when Lin went to L.A., I could not ask the same question because she was no longer employed there then. I don’t even know if they still have him there in NYC now. Emails to the museum went unanswered.

    If I have to guess, the one in Fisherman’s Wharf will make the change to his new team. I hope.

    I agree with the views expressed here that the Lakers will try to re-sign Jeremy. But I think Jeremy will at least get a few offers from other teams. I had my doubts about Kobe before this season but now I virtually have no respect for him. He is several rungs below MJ as the greatest SG ever.

  • Acbc

    Bazinga! That’s been KOBE since he joined the lakers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This year marks the comeback of two franchises to playoff. Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics are contenders for the playoff and most likely earn themselves playoff berths again. They all have made tremendous improvements since last year. The similarities lie in they all have an excellent coach leading their ways to success despite some heartbreaking losses in the beginnings.
    Milwaukee started the season with 2-4 and then improved to almost 50% winning record. Boston started their season with a 4-11 record struggling until now. But all is well ends well. They are the most likely teams to make the playoff to join the contenders in the East.
    Lakers however hasn’t shown any sign of recovery from dismal seasons. Based on the roster and not the coach, most predicted a far better record than now at the beginning of the season. Byron Scott however has made it to the bottom of its division. The sinking of the Lakers was joined by Phil Jackson’s Knicks.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Damage control piece. At this point, who cares about what BS thinks. He may be old school, but applies “New Core” thinking. Throws common sense and obvious conclusions out the door, and over thinks. Any parents here who works with kids homework will understand what I am talking about. Maybe even giving him too much credit here. Even common core is concept driven.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Hey guys, I’ve enjoyed “hanging” out here with you folks. Even with the recent series of events, can’t stop checking back here even though can’t stand watching the “games”.

    Remember all the excitement of Lin getting the “call”. Now that the season is finally almost over, we can’t wait for that next “call”. The experience for Lin is “tough”, but I believe it has made him stronger. He will get there, to a place he deserves.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The Laker is having a 21:58 win-loss record this season but the coach BS wants us to believe that his lineup changes, rotations, and game time decisions are just for evaluation of talents. The won-lost record was not important because his usage of players were just for evaluation purpose. The excessive minutes and shot-taking of Kobe Bryant were just for evaluation of Kobe using the same kind of reasoning.

    It seems to me that BS wants fans to come back next season to watch this team because now with more talents coming into the team for him to evaluate, Good luck Laker Fans! The games are not going to be for real unless BS says so.

    Wesley Johnson has got some attention that he deserved. I hope to see him play for Portland instead of Laker and Byron Scott.
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2421410-the-one-2015-free-agent-each-nba-team-should-already-be-eyeing/page/26

    Of course, I wish to see Lin leave LA and play for another team too. BS is not the type of coach who would use his talent properly. On top of the lists, I love to see Lin play for Mavericks, Utah, Milwaukee and Atlanta. These teams all have the coaches to use Lin’s talents properly.

    Laker put Lin through the MRI examination really hurts Lin’s free agency. Now everybody is informed of Lin’s abnormality on his left knee, the knee he had meniscus operation. Is this a way to lowball Jeremy? However Byron is on his way to look for a superstar prospect for Laker and this is certainly not Jeremy Lin in Byron’s mind. Better leave this toxic coach ASAP.

    Note Milwaukee has a defense that can use Lin’s helping defense a lot more.
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2424336-jason-kidd-leads-milwaukee-bucks-nba-learning-experience-this-season
    Atlanta has the coach and the play style Jeremy likes. Utah is in need of a PG badly. Mavericks has the coach second only to Pop in team offense and team defense. Just hope Jeremy would leave LA next season.

    I don’t think the MRI hurt lin’s FA. The MRI was basically negative. It was on track with somebody who had a surgical repaired knee. The good thing was that it showed no further injury to the knee, that is what GM’s are looking for.

  • HeroBallJLIN

    Hands down the most dedicated Lin fan! Thumbs up!

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Mark Median’s reporting of Lin’s injury is so conflicting and puzzling:
    http://www.insidesocal.com/lakers/2015/04/11/lakers-jeremy-lin-sits-out-of-saturdays-practice-with-left-knee-soreness/
    (1.1) Lakers guard Jeremy Lin missed Saturday’s practice so he could receive treatment to heal persistent soreness in his left knee. (??? treatment; persistent soreness!!!)
    (1.2) After practice ended, Lin emerged on the court and completed some dribbling and shooting drills with Lakers player development coach Thomas Scott.

    (2) Lin has missed the past two games because of his latest injury. (??? what injury???)
    (3) A recent MRI confirmed an abnormality in his meniscus that has existed since having surgery in 2012. (abnormality; that is questionable, a scar, a contusion, a swelling or thickening)

    (4.1) The Lakers (21-58) have not ruled out Lin playing for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.
    (4.2) “He’s getting better,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said of Lin. “He went through his treatment. We’ll just see how he feels tomorrow in shootaround.”

  • Brent Yen
  • JLin Fan from Australia

    It is just DNP-CD. Not going to worry about this one iota. His MRI just showed normal after surgery. Nothing to worry about. We know this is just another game from BS to shut JLin down without getting reprimand from his fans.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    I think it’s best that Lin not play in the remaining 3 games….Since the Lakers will officially go after a Rondo + the emergence of Clarkson + Kobe, I see no reason for Lin to play in a Lakers uniform if he’s not coming back next year….

    I also don’t think Scott will give him enough minute to pad his stats..In a way, it makes no sense for Scott to give Lin the chance to shine for his upcoming free agency…This time is better use for their other guards that have better chance of being in L.A next season.

    He was lookin’ a little weedy there for a moment 🙂 …but sometimes you have to grow it out a little to give the stylist something to work with. I like this.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Perhaps Jeremy should consider playing for Boston too.

    Brad Stevens:
    “I think our job, when someone walks through our door for the first time is to focus on what they can do well and try to get the most out of them, and tell them we believe in what they do well,”
    Evan Turner has grown this year, especially of late. Marcus Smart’s defense has always exuded ferocity, but he’s now added
    vast intelligence to the bit, a horrifying combination for any opposing player. Jae Crowder fits. Isaiah Thomas fits. Kelly Olynyk fits.

  • Arsenium12 .
  • LAJane

    Great to see the pics. Crazy not to be there, but have unavoidable responsibility demanding attention. Big crowd, even organized into groups it seems, and meet/greet limit of 300 fans. Will just have to live vicariously ;-]

  • joyce ward

    I think his haircut looks sexy>>>LOL

  • Yascar

    I’m with you! LOL

  • joyce ward
  • guest

    he looks so thin. Esp. his face.

  • Yascar

    I do think he’s lost weight since his illness. But did you notice him climbing those stairs? He looked perfectly normal. Is that usually the case for people with knee soreness and pain? Serious question.

  • Sophie Paris

    Exactly! Sexiest haircut 😉

  • joyce ward
  • takemeback2reaganyears

    So disgraceful what BS has done to Lin particularly this season.

  • Brent Yen
  • Yascar

    Wow! Is that “our” blubell? The one that posts here?

  • Brent Yen

    I can neither confirm nor deny that info…lol

  • Yascar

    In my book, that means yes.

  • Brent Yen

    Back from the event. Got there around 2:15 pm. Shopped for about 30 mins (you have to purchase at least 30 bucks to get a wristband. Got in line till 5:00 pm to meet him. We were busy taking pictures and the line was moving so quick that I don’t remember if i looked at him .

    I think they only let 300 fans to get in. Saw someone came late and had to leave.

    Here is my pictures w/ him

    So I locked eyes with Jeremy Lin. It was a great day 🙂

  • orLinaryjoe

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Did u say anything to him??

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    LOL Thanks! Beautiful Anna:-)

  • orLinaryjoe

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Did you go?

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Arsenium12 .
  • orLinaryjoe

    No. Though I could have driven 8 hrs to see him. I meant it was nice to see LA posters here with their fruits of their labor and faces to go with.

  • blubell

    My friend took some pictures… need to get them from her.

  • orLinaryjoe

    You should have “handed” him your pen to sign, as your hand accidentally takes hold of his. Note: the smaller the pen , the better, lol.

  • Yascar

    YESSSS!

  • webattorney

    Cool photo.

  • sport

    Pretty sure Lin isn’t going to come back just for a few games. Now just wait for end of season in April so reporters can ask Lin about FA!

  • webattorney

    Some die-hard Lin fans. I was too lazy to meet him to drive 10 minutes when he visited some church here in Irvine, CA. Lol

  • Rookie75094

    My daughter name is Anna too…. nice

  • tin3ytina

    So jealous of everyone who got to go to the event! Meanwhile, stuck at work. Feel like sulking today

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Miami is going to lose a heart breaker to Toronto soon. Lou Williams a veteran SG breaks loose and scored 29.

  • blubell

    I said God bless you and he looked up.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Thanks rooting for Jeremy.

  • leeda harun

    so happy for all jlin fans out there.Thanks for posting the videos and pics for us here. 🙂

  • 1mtoldman

  • blubell

    Well now you tell me. Lol.

  • bolero

    @_bk_chino @ianeBe @JLin7 thankfully I didn't faint!!! But my brother in law had to pull me out of the store cuz I didn't wanna leave

  • 1mtoldman

    brent was trying to keep your identity secure thru the typical adminstrator answer to all questions.

    i think the bigger deal is that “our bluebell” got a reply text? thats what that means above right?

    i think that constitutes celebrity status now.

  • 1mtoldman

    2 bad i missed this hair discussion. always up for hair talk.

  • tin3ytina

    Yes. Glad so many fans went 🙂 jlin has some super awesome fans!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hassan Whiteside is 4 out of 16 in FTs.

  • Winner

    curry would have a chance to be finals mvp IF gsw wins championship. sorry to burst your bubbles,
    i think spurs gonna win another ring this season. 🙂

    So long as Kobe is still there for 1 more season, Lakers aren’t going anywhere.

  • sport

    Glad JLin got to meet with LA fans, probably the last chance to meet him in person cause he’s obviously not staying on Lakers.

  • Filler-up

    Keep an adidas shirt on and retweet him bro.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blubell

    They only allowed one autograph per person but I dragged my best friend, who knew nothing about Jeremy, with me and made her get the other one. hehe.

  • CJSHYY
  • Brent Yen

    I have been saying this for awhile now.. Oh man…Lin had bad luck in terms of his bosses for yrs now. Let hope his luck will at least regress to the average….lol

  • sws94

    Lin’s hair is getting out of control, lol.

  • Brent Yen

    That’s good! He is not under anyone’s control!!

  • blubell

    I didn’t really like it first but it has that “I just got out of bed but I still look good” sexiness to it 😛

  • Rick

    中国人中有“蓄须(发)明志“一说
    Jeremy可能是故意养的吧

  • chan c

    that hair though .. is so high school 🙂

  • chan c

    lol

  • orLinaryjoe

    U go girl! Smart!

  • blubell

    Thanks to my best friend… she truly is the best!

  • chan c

    he’s a rockstar! 🙂

  • knibb

    I am not gonna get no haircut until Lin gets his.

  • blubell

    I must’ve been very nervous… I took couple of selfies but they’re are all blurry 🙁
    I really hope my friend took some good pics.

  • blubell

    I can now die happy 🙂

  • man, 10 min? hehe
    still waiting for that 5-min drive, I see LOL

  • Brent Yen

    lol oh com’on….many more good things to come….

  • you should’ve said, “God bless you … with me and my home-made sushi!” LOL

  • awesome picture, bro!

  • blubell

    lol. fine. I’ll continue to live.

  • blubell

    Spoken like a true winner. He loves winning and he needs to go to a winning team!

  • congrats! Mission Accomplished!
    Now Jeremy remembers you :]
    Can you sleep tonight tho? LOL

  • blubell

    I arrived at WSS around 11 and I was 14th in line. I met @LisaTarng and took couple of pics. She even let me take pics with her famous signs 🙂 Jeremy arrived a little after 4. Jeremy was busy and looking down autographing one item to another. When it was my turn, I said “God bless you Jeremy” and he looked up and said “oh, thank you!” Thats when we locked eyes and sparks started flying… probably… lol.

  • Brent Yen

    LOL great!!!

  • Brent Yen

    So…is this WSS store a very big one in LA?

  • MoominFloren

    I’m so jealous…….

  • JoeTeam

    lol, probably good one!

  • hahaha… were there more ensuing conversations, exchanging phone numbers after the sparks settled down? =>
    I’d have taken good pics or videos for you if I don’t have to wait 5 hrs.
    Bravo!

  • blubell

    No need for words. Our eyes were saying plenty 😛

  • Brent Yen

    He is so bigheaded….

  • hehehe… ‘words can’t express how 2 pairs of eyes are intertwined’ kind of thing. Nice! LOL
    Good luck trying to sleep tonight!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    That’s pretty cool!

  • blubell

    I don’t think so. It wasn’t that big and to be honest the area was a bit shady.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Jeremy to young girl : “Study Chinese and don’t fight with your brother …”

  • Brent Yen

    M so how could they hook up with lin? Must be Adidas….

  • sorry, I cannot upvote this one LOL

  • blubell

    Jeremy is awesome 🙂

  • blubell

    come on. you can do it! lol. Messy morning hair can be sexy 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    This is funny. LOL!

  • Rick

    Wow

  • blubell

    I think Jeremy was pleasantly surprised when I said “God bless you” because people in front of me were just saying “thank you” “you’re an inspiration” etc. He truly loves God and on his mind constantly. I really admire him for that 🙂

  • blubell

    I didn’t faint but my hands were somewhat shaking!

  • tin3ytina

    My favorite picture thus far!

  • Keith

    She was in front of me at the line.

  • Rick

    The poor guy came here to ask Jeremy to tell his girl “study Chinese, don’t fight with your brother”

    Guess this girl is a huge Jeremy Lin fan and will probably listen to Jeremy

    But, but, that is bad parenting

  • Keith

    Thanks

  • Keith

    Lin looks skinnier in person than he is on TV. ( I am saying it not cuz I am fat 🙂 )

  • Keith

    Thanks

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Yes he is. That’s great! He always appreciates people who pray and support him.

  • no comment =]

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Indeed he lost quite a fair bit of weight since he was ill. It’s so obvious. My guess is at least 10Ibs or more.

  • I’ve always said the camera adds 20lbs =)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    He is a fan from Jeremely only Lin Garden:-)

  • Keith

    Guys I saw Jeremy Lin at the mall

  • blubell

    fine… lol

  • blubell

    He lost weight….. and height. lol

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • TTNN

    same hair though

  • blubell

    Always love SmiLin 🙂

  • wandertheglobe

    I’d love for Lin to sign 1 yr deal w/GS to be Curry’s back up. Test the water and be a FA in 2016 when the new CBA is in place.

  • Filler-up

    6’3″ and 200 lb is slim build since he’s all muscle.

  • Filler-up

    Most area of LA and major cities in US are shady.

  • Filler-up

    You sure that wasn’t static from the carpet?

  • blubell

    No carpet. Hardwood flooring, I think. So… 😛

  • JoeTeam

    no no no, that’s not enough …

  • blubell

    lol.

  • ManuGinobilin

    Brad Stevens is a REALLY good coach. He excels at managing/treating players with respect, holding quality practices, and makes solid in-game situations.

    The Celtics have had pretty underwhelming talent these past few years, but imo, they’ve overachieved every year Stevens has been there. I’m sure that if Lin signed with Boston, he’d be in good coaching hands.

    On the flip side, the roster situation in BOS is probably not ideal for Lin if he wants to play more than he has been this season. BOS is going to continue developing Smart, IT will get his minutes and Turner is a ball-dominant player too. On the Celtics, Lin would have a lot of his opportunities to handle the ball minimized just by nature of their roster.

  • Maknusia

    sweet!!!…picture picture…please!

  • Maknusia

    awesome…thanks for sharing mate…you lucky dude!…jealous

  • Maknusia

    Nice to see so many fans here get to see him…the best thing of the season!!!!

  • Kianainhi

    I love this pic. Kids bring out the big kid in JLin.

  • Kianainhi

    Wait….your best friend don’t know who JLin is? The love of your life.

  • Maknusia

    Yeah…I think so too….he lost some weight during his sinus, most likely due to lost of appetite

  • Filler-up

    Livingston is still under contract next year?

  • Filler-up

    I admire your dedication to line up so early. Glad the sparks were worth it.

  • Filler-up

    You should have gotten the guy in line in front of you to take some snaps.

  • Filler-up

    Nice. She’s probably 5’8″ or so.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • JAD2456

    I think he looked more like he just got out of shower instead of bed.

  • Filler-up

    “You wanna share a sushi roll with me?” or “You start on one end and I’ll start on the other and we’ll meet in the middle.”

  • blubell
  • Maknusia

    Now he has a chance to start all over again! 🙂

  • Maknusia

    I wonder..if during off season Lin would have his meniscus abnormality re-done?

  • kittyhead

    Why? I think abnormality refers to the place where he had surgery before,perhaps the shape looking different from noraml ones, not meaning it’s injured again?

  • 1mtoldman

    objection. calls for speculation.

  • 1mtoldman

    what i dont understand is why this story keeps getting buzz but the story that initially came out at the same time about the morris brothers being accused of assault as part of a gang of guys that about killed somebody quietly disappeared.

  • 1mtoldman

    there was a serious hair discussion among the ladies here previous. i regret i missed being in on it.

    always ready to talk hair.

  • 1mtoldman

    can you say that on here?

    and again: objection, calls for speculation on the part of the witness.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah. the last thing you want to do if yer sinus’d up with what i call “green slime disease” which ive had for months at a time in my life (jlf f a above sez also has had same for similar periods of time) is to eat.

  • 1mtoldman

    actually it look like the kid who plays eddie huang on boat. sort of. from behind.

  • 1mtoldman

    exactly. that was the point of the mri; and the conclusion: the “abnormality” is “normal”. no new or reaggravation of previous injury; just the as you say “shape” of what would be the consequence of the previous surgery.

    ie. that the “soreness” (alleged) currently (sounds like asik/boozer disease to me) is not the result of renewed problems with the old inury.

  • webattorney

    Not shopping malls.

  • webattorney

    God is on my mind a lot also but not Christ. Lol

  • webattorney

    I never had any problem with cops in my life because I say “Sir” when I talk to them and am very respectful. I had more problem with racist non-cops.

  • webattorney

    Question to anyone who was there: Out of 300 people who got autographs from Lin, how many were non-Asians or Whites or African-Americans? Seems from photos, 90% plus were Asians. Just curious.

  • webattorney

    Liberal media. Believe me, media is not interested in being objective but getting most hits.

  • 311

    Less competition that way. 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I would rather call them officers.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    comparing to Milwaukee and Boston, Lakers is not going anywhere. Don’t blame the players. Blame the coach.

  • K. P. Chan

    So bluebell: You looked into the window of his soul, and he yours. Nothing needed to be said. Lol!

  • 311

    She was one of the lucky ones to get a reply from Jeremy. Love his response.

    https://twitter.com/JLin7/status/587048341868953600

  • K. P. Chan

    Lin fans: Any buzz about today? The game will be on NBAtv. But If Lin doesn’t play today I will not see him in a Laker uniform again because my Ballstreams contract has expired.

  • 311

    If you dressed up as a giant In-N-Out burger, you would have had his undivided attention.

  • Acbc

    According to Malcolm Gkadwell in “The Turning Point”, it happened. Hush Puppies were dying out until a fashion designer started to show his models wearing them. Within months they were sold out everywhere. Lol

    Sheep to the slaughter.

  • webattorney

    Mine till Sept. Will decide after I find out where Lin will be.

  • Maknusia

    not sure, if there is some irritation that is causing the intermission swelling? The report posted are not through…hence I was just wondering….if its causing any problem.

    For me it adds WAAAAY too much weight. The camera hates me!

  • Maknusia

    you sure its not the other way around? you hate camera ;0)

  • chan c

  • Acbc

    Nah, I’m perfect. Lol

    What? Are you sure it’s liberal media that’s making the cops shooting people in the back, ganging up on someone whose already lying facedown with hands ready to be cuffed? What the heck are you smoking!

  • Arsenium12 .

    Yesterday, Jeremy was photographed at the WSS store with John Chiang, Treasurer of the State of California (scroll down to see some pictures). It reminded me that in September, 2014, Jeremy met Steve Westly, a venture capitalist and former Controller and Chief Financial Officer of the State of California. It’s great that he’s making these connections that might open doors for him after the NBA.

    Objection to your objection!

  • JoeTeam

    Generally true for me too except once when my brother and I drove through a wealthier neighborhood in a beat up car. Very tough on me, that stop. They do profile, and it’s a hard job because they could get attacked at any moment by anyone they stop,

  • JoeTeam

    that story is really bad, the one that involved the morris bros. They are privileged, to be able to play in the NBA. There are at least 1000 guys in line after them to play.

  • Tell me about it lol

  • I see you’re experienced

  • webattorney

    Tx. That’s what I thought.

  • hehe..
