G80 CHA @ WAS Game Thread

With 3 games left, the Hornets is still at the 6th seed and 1 gamesbehind the 3rd seed Atlanta Hawks. The Wizards game is an interesting game against a team who missed the playoff but will only play for pride.

  • Jeremy’s elbow received a timely treatment from Mr. Lo who hopefully will help to treat injured shoulder and all kinds of bumps and bruises before the rigorous playoff round will begin.
  • There were glimpses of teamball in 3-4 plays in the Nets game that’s very encouraging to see. The Hornets will only have a chance to advance in 2nd round of playoff by playing unselfish teamball to give them open shots and strong defense. Heroball will continue to be their demise by creating inefficient offense and lackadaisical effort in defense because teammates are not very involved in the game.

Let’s go, JLin! Let’s hope and pray JLin continue to hit his stride and carry the momentum to lead to big wins.

Guess JLin's stats in Game 81 vs BOS
  • bolero

    1st?

  • BobbyH

    2nd.

  • blueCypher

    He should get that elbow as close to 100 by playoff start next weekend

  • zxcvb

    Not very optimistic for the playoffs.

    1) Because of the reliance on Kemba Ball, CHA has a poor record against top teams. They don’t have any tie-breakers against any of their potential 1st or 2nd rd opponents, so getting homecourt will take a minor miracle.

    2) Kemba Ball doesn’t work against legit good teams. And especially not in a 7-game series where teams can adjust and plan ahead. The only “playoff caliber” wins this year have been all Lin-led (@TOR CLE, SAS), and Lin will not be allowed to go off more than 1 or 2 games TOPS in a series. Their goal is not to win. It’s to #WinWithWalker.

    Annus Horribilis last year followed next season with Annus Mirabilis? – Indulge me please…lol

    No revelation last season was JLIN’s “Horrible Year”:
    – Byron Scott & Kobe constant denigration & vilification
    – Benching in favor of Ronnie Price
    – Tanking Lakers team
    – Rockets by hook, crook and luck make the WCF
    – No offers other than CHA

    No jinx intended; but cosmos beginning to correct itself in JLIN’s favor…
    – Signs of retribution: McHale fired, Sam Hinkie fired
    – Rockets miss playoffs (60% chance) & Morey possible firing
    – Lakers wipe JLIN name off record setting worst team with even worse year
    – JLIN performs spectacularly when allowed chance to lead CHA against league’s elite teams
    – JLIN glue player for bench and critical piece that corrects huge deficits by CHA starters
    – JLIN receives NO BLAME when Clifford does not use him & CHA ousted first round
    – Colangelos’ completely takeover Philadelphia 76ers
    – Mike D’Antoni imminent as new 76ers Head Coach

    Next season be JLIN’s “Wonderful & Amazing Year” ?
    – JLIN free agent signing to lead 76ers as new starting point guard
    – JLIN & Mike D’Antoni produce high-octane offense predicated on P&R, ball movement, find-open man, intelligent, unselfish basketball.
    – JLIN leads group of enthusiastic, athletic youngsters to 40 wins & make playoffs
    – Sixers low seed shocks with a surprise first round victory over Toronto Raptors
    – JLIN lauded as hero in Philadelphia with worldwide media writing Linsanity 2.0
    – Hornet’s bench collapses after bringing back Brian Roberts (or whatever) at backup PG
    – Hornets miss playoffs falling back to 33-49, Clifford job under pressure
    – Lakers fire BScott
    – Rockets again miss playoffs & trade Harden to a team who uses him as 6th man

    this is awesome. I hope NBA starts investigating.

  • sws94
  • steven ko

    don’t think hornets can get the third seed. best to rest JLin and stay in 6th. it is not good to be a 4th seed with Cleveland waiting in round 2 and a complete disaster if they end up with the 5th seed.

  • Sundown

    Good for them but 30 days till we know for sure.

  • Yascar

    And there it is. Silver making a stand on discrimination. Let’s see if the flagrant fouls video touches a cord.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • blueCypher

    Good for em. Put pressure

  • CJSHYY

    No wonder Hornets push so hard for Kemba to get the MIP now… It’s going to be hard for Kemba & Batum be AS next season if Hornets can’t host the ASG.

  • Win

    They knew it all alone but never do a damn thing about it. But now the video has gone viral, hopefully they will take action. It will lower Lin TO ratio as well.

    What a great Job Lin’s fan have done. Salute!!!

  • John Focker

    Karma strikes HUGE time!

  • John Focker

    I don’t trust the Suns’ current F/O, and I dislike Bledsoe even more. Best for D’Antoni to stay with the “real” Suns in the Colangelos.

  • cdblue10

    Not a possibility,the chance is zero to none.D’Antoni is taking over the76’ers …everything is already written on the wall.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • CJSHYY

    I think so. MDA to 76. I thought Nash already turned down Sun’s talk before… he said he wants to stay in CA. I am thinking Nash will be Lakers’ next coach.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • blueCypher

    Well, thats that… 🙂

  • Rick Johnson

    I think MDA has had it with big ego star players. No Sun’s.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Big win for the Hawks. Current standings — Atlanta (48-32), Boston (47-33), Miami and Charlotte (46-33).

  • noob

    Refs swallowing their whistles int e GSW MEM game. Stephenson was definitely fouled on his shot attempt at the end of the game.

  • gandychan

    bulls offense so stagnant with the starters back on the floor. Looked way better with Aaron brooks penetrating. Drose not looking comfortable at all.

  • grover chang

    Elbow must really be bothering Lin. He has too much pain to do his infamous hover hand. All palm and fingers over that woman’s shoulder. 😉

  • grover chang

    Brooks led the bench back for the win. +23 Aaron Brooks. Another former Rocket pg producing.

  • NONONO

    I think Hornets might have better chance past 1st round if they were at #6 and Hawks at #3. Hornets would have hard time to compete with either Heat or Celtics no matter at home or on road.

  • NONONO

    Kemba Hype is over. It is good for the team to focus on winning instead of Kemba’s stats

  • rookie75094

    what’s wrong with that? hehe

  • Brent Yen

    Why?

  • I thought the Hornets match up very well with the Hawks but lately they’ve been playing very well beating the Raptors and the Celtics so they might be gaining momentum.

    Maybe the Heat and the Celtics will be a better matchup

  • Brent Yen

    I think ATL will pose a bigger problem….But again…we talk about Batum, Kemba, and Lin…..the real problem still is about bigs…

  • K

    You have Wizards game listed as April 9.

  • Rick Johnson

    Charlotte got to win out especially against Boston to have chance at home court advantage.

  • bolero

    JLin funny face on snapchat. Couldn’t watch Pacquiao fight because he has a game tomorrow. “Go Pacquiao”

  • This game thread was published 1 day early but the game timer on top right shows correctly on April 10 with less than 11 hrs.

  • yes, no reliable big men in the Hornets … back to rebounding by committee again but then allowing 3pt shooters to be open. A real weakness of the Hornets this season

  • Brent Yen

    So….Hornets will have chances on smaller teams….

  • Arsenium12 .

    Here are the probabilities for the Hornets and competitors, following Saturday’s games (from playoffstatus.com) :

    I agree. ATL is not a good match up for Hornets. They are better off playing Miami, even though, Whiteside is a big problem for Hornets bigs.

    https://twitter.com/NBALineupsDaily/status/719015316978688001

  • Whitman Lam

    Whiteside’s weakness is Al posting him up and drawing fouls. Hawks and Celtics have big men who can defend the post up, and hit 3’s at the other end of the floor.

  • Phoenix Rising

    And if these things do not happen, we now know who to blame 😉

  • xeroid

    Cleveland will always be in the second round unless Hornets finish 3rd, or the 3rs place finisher loses the first round.

  • JLin Fan from Australia
  • Yascar
  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    If I’m the Hornets, I’d rather face the Celtics because they really have just one game-breaker type of player in miget Thomas but even Thomas can be contain if played properly.

    Guys like Bradley, Turner, Smart, Crowder..these guys simply doesn’t scare me much in compare the Hawks’s Teague/Hortford/Milsap or Miami’s Wade/Dragic/Whiteside

  • NONONO

    I fund one more (big) reason Lin should leave Charlotte and come to Philly or NYC (Nets) after I watched the “Too Flagrant Not to Call” video with sadness and madness. It is true that some “star” players (especially Kobe and Melo) treated Lin in very dirty and harmful ways. It is true that some Refs treated him with more or less racism. But the home town fans, teammates and coaches are supposed to stand up for him, shout for him and protect him. They can influence refs and opponent players in muc more effective ways. They did not, they are just watching when bad thing happened to Lin. I really do not believe Nets and 76ers fans, chances, players would keep quiet like that. Please come to big city and be a starter.

  • lleepar

    Kobe’s final NBA game gets bumped off television?
    https://twitter.com/ArashMarkazi/status/718996313707294720

  • David Ly

    Lin considered candidate for 6th man of the year according to NBA TV.

  • donsmacau

    The tone should start with the Head Coach.

    Head Coach sets tone by forcefully arguing for his player in-game. Clifford rarely does that for any player, much less for JLIN because he is a “defense” oriented coach. He feels if he argues for his player, then they may not get benefit when Hornets make hard fouls.

  • John Focker

    How shallow, only showing scoring stats…

  • John Focker

    Must retweet!

  • sws94

    Flagrant. Cody gets leveled.

  • Lefon Jang

    Washington playoff basketball lol

  • KWC

    If Lin, offsensive foul.

  • NONONO

    After NBA toke ASG away from Charlotte, i hope we would not see more KW hype.

  • Lefon Jang

    Yeah they’d call Lin on the charge!

  • NONONO

    or no foul

  • sws94

    Lee doesn’t look like he can create his own shot late in the shot clock. Two bad possessions by him.

  • KWC

    No John Wall makes it harder

  • lleepar

    The announcement was a fake …
    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/718988772289806336

  • JoeTeam

    Go Lin top right of any graphic is always good lol.

  • JoeTeam

    cool that NBA had to talk about it, maybe someone should announce a special ref rule for calling Jlin fairly, lol.

  • Phillycheese

    bring in Lin

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin in

  • IsabeliJane*17

    12 AM my time. I don’t know if I should keep watching this game with these Wizards commentators’ voices kind of lulling me to sleep.

  • jimmyL

    Lins been missing a lot of wide open 3’s this season

  • aras

    yep

  • sws94

    Mostly, his shot has been off.

  • aras

    shooting 38 percent from 3 since asg break but still open jumpers gotta capitalise.

  • aras

    he cant create period thats not his game really. he has 1 move the shot fake and midrange pull up

  • sws94

    A few hot games. But that’s a good number.

  • sws94

    Nice assist there by Lin. Kam knocks down the 3.

  • KWC

    Perfect timing

  • Win

    3333333

  • aras

    reaaal nice pass from lin there

  • jimmyL

    On the season he’s shooting worse than Kemba actually

  • sws94

    If Kemba plays D like this in the playoffs, Hornets don’t stand a chance. He’s truly awful today, worse than usual.

  • David Ly

    It’s rare to have a pass instead of a one-on-one shot at the end of of quarters, but it happens more often when Lin has the ball. Good that Al have him the ball after the rebound.

  • blueCypher

    Did someone videocap when they talked about 6th man of the year on nbatv pregame

  • aras

    he cant defend sws Playoffs will be different from regular season they’ll target him 24/7

    hes gonna need help on the defensive end

  • David Ly

    I did. If you scroll down.

  • Win

    Come on Al, gotta pass that one.

  • blueCypher

    I meant a video of them talking about it 🙂

  • Alain Gervais

    These no calls

  • sws94

    Yep. Hope he makes adjustments are starts going to the floater. If they don’t call, like they probably won’t in the playoffs, he has to use the floater.

  • JoeTeam

    high glass would have been a try …

  • aras

    Lins gotta find that in between game its crucial for him being as he does not get calls for him that often its even more crucial he practises the in between more than ever.

  • Alain Gervais

    Hornets need more pace to help Lin catch the Defenders off balance

  • cdblue10

    You shoot the basketball what the defense give you

  • David Ly

    YouTube is your best bet there. Maybe NBA TV will upload something about it.

  • Alain Gervais

    3 assist

  • aras

    good to see

  • JoeTeam

    honestly, it’s more a matter of team d right now.

  • Alain Gervais

    agreed

  • David Ly

    Lin assists for three pointers have been working today.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Time to get those shots Jeremy.

  • sws94

    Looks like Lin ball out there now. Lin’s not scoring, but guys are getting good looks, converting on some.

  • jimmyL

    Jeferson get out

  • JoeTeam

    hey you back with the asterisk?

  • Win

    Al is too slow.

  • Win

    Wizards are doubling Lin.

  • aras

    Lin is distributing real well right now hope cliff keeps him in

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Hello @joeteam:disqus I miss this turf hahaha

  • KWC

    No screens at all

  • JoeTeam

    well, you joining us for playoffs?

  • Alain Gervais

    Thats not true

  • KWC

    Another missed open 3

  • aras

    come on lin with these open misses 3s

  • DX

    Lin’s shoot is still off. 0-4, no excuse.

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Oh yeah.

  • NONONO

    i think Lin is bothered by his back injury. he dribbled the ball high and a bit slow than usual.

  • sws94

    That wasn’t a bad miss. I’m more concerned that he’s not handling the ball with as much confidence as he should today.

  • JoeTeam

    ok. that’s cool.

  • aras

    looks tired when he plays real slow out no speed…injuries taking a toll on him?

  • takeme2cruz

    I’m seeing that too.

  • DX

    How this team compete in playoff. Suck!

  • JoeTeam

    oh well, that wasn’t a fun shift … next one!

  • Alain Gervais

    They are not playing with the same intensity defensively

  • John Focker

    Welcome back, haven’t seen you in ages!

    You’d be real proud of me, I know over 30 Pony names now! LOL

  • aras

    they are playing some rough D on lin so far. this is how they’ll play in the playoffs. Lin and Kemba better be prepared

  • IsabeliJane*17

    Yay!!! #TeamRainbowDash

  • DX

    Wizards neither.

  • KWC

    Nene should be able to abuse CHA bigs.

  • jimmyL

    These bigs are so lazy
    doesnt matter who they play on the first round they will get destroyed
    lucky to have one W

  • Alain Gervais

    These last few game will be tough. We look tired.

  • sws94

    No one is playing well today. The whole team is flat. Lin had some nice assists, but can’t score so far.

  • sws94

    Thankfully this one and then 2 more. They are very tired.

  • aras

    This is where you try out Batum kemba and Lin cliff its a double digit lead right now might as well try them out for an extended period of time second half.

  • KWC

    What? Try something new? Preposterous.

  • sws94

    He seriously needs rest. But that’s not Cliff’s style. Plus, with the way the team is playing, they need everyone. But it is just a tired, blah looking team.

  • aras

    lol not really new though -.- but he should be trying to make them gel a little bit more it might be needed come playoffs. Lin and kemba will get roughed up on.

  • sws94

    Lee is ice cold and Lin/Batum/Kemba was the best unit out there. I agree.

  • HVJoy

    Hornets are behind Wizards by 11? What’s up? Is it the noon game time that has the player tired?

  • aras

    2 slicers and 1 distributor thats how they cut the lead down.

  • Lefon Jang

    Hornets are not going all out so they’re not too tired for the playoff. Wizards are playing like they should be in the playoff.

  • KWC

    Should have passed that Cody.

  • grover chang

    Who are we rooting for next game. Lakers or Rockets?

  • Lefon Jang

    Lakers

  • TTNN

    Lakers

  • jimmyL

    Rockets

  • HVJoy

    I see. And, Wizards do not have John Wall on court.

  • aras

    bahaaha these washington commentators are hilarious like 2 old men complaining about stuff today.

  • HVJoy

    Lakers.

  • BobbyH

    Lakers.

  • Lefon Jang

    Is that a typo? lol

  • sws94

    Not the most energetic crew.

  • KWC

    Depends on whether you want Rox to get a pick.

  • Lefon Jang

    or if you want them to be in the playoff.

  • kauaiblue

    Lakers. Despise rox.

  • kauaiblue

    Hows he doing??

  • Win

    Lakers.

  • HVJoy

    Lin did not shoot well like the rest of the team — 16/41, per NBA halftime show. He does have 3 assists though.

  • kauaiblue

    Ok, thanks!

  • I am The Jason

    These are horrible choices, but I will go with the Lakers.

  • grover chang

    Looks like walker catching fire again and game is close.

  • Alain Gervais

    Both lee and datum 1-7

  • David Ly

    Lin in way earlier than usual.

  • kauaiblue

    Oh no, losing recipe.

  • kauaiblue

    It wont matter. They have a totally loser culture there. And to think i almost took a vacation there to see jlin play.

  • kauaiblue

    No playoffs. They wouldnt know what to do with a draft pick anyway.

  • grover chang

    Smart. Brought out the big guns. Daniels with the 333s

  • sws94

    Right, none of the team is shooting well.

  • KWC

    Can’t buy a basket

  • aras

    yep

  • sws94

    Needs to take closer shot. Drive in and shoot shorter jump shots.

  • Alain Gervais

    Wide open 3 miss again.

  • Alain Gervais

    All of his misses are just off

  • aras

    can lin get a point maybe?

  • kauaiblue

    Maybe tired.

  • grover chang

    Needs to follow through

  • sws94

    Not bad misses. He really hasn’t taken many shots. A lot of players go 0-6 or 7 and then hit a few.

  • aras

    wide open 3s at least 3 of them

  • KWC

    Thing is when he misses the first few then he tends to shoot less.

  • kauaiblue

    Why is he even playing with that elbow? Geesh… he needs to be more selfish sometimes…

  • sport

    Been hoping someone would do this, only took them 5 seasons but about time.

  • sws94

    Lee’s missed a lot too. Finally hit one. I think Lin should take shorter shots. Lin just missed another one, not open, contested.

  • sport

    Because that’s what NBA and fans only care about and why JLin needs to be average 20+ points if he wants to be All-Star.

  • aras

    My god these misses….distribute lin

  • Alain Gervais

    He is

  • Alain Gervais

    Lin has to get going and stop settling for threes

  • jimmyL

    They did go to conference final last year and 2 rings with Hakeem

  • grover chang

    No Lin. No win. He is off today. Can’t win with Lin playing badly.

  • aras

    Lin cant play like this come playoffs way to passive settling for 3s not even attacking

  • DX

    Come on, Lin! 0-6, 2TOs.

  • aras

    how ? he has 0 points

  • Alain Gervais

    He is the point guard missed all his shots.

  • aras

    who said PG? i meant get points

  • Alain Gervais

    lol sorry watching game and reading. Misread. Idk . He is not driving much

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    clifford gotta give up on Big Al now or risk losing the first round

  • aras

    …..screw this im out waste of a time cliff should take him out not play him rest of the game.

  • sws94

    OK, that’s what he needs to do. Get to the line.

  • DX

    Lin, please sit if you are injury, don’t play like this.

  • David Ly

    Good thing he got some free throws. Could have been a 0 point game today with the way he was shooting.

  • Alain Gervais

    Game is far too slow right now.

  • Alain Gervais

    was too slow last game as well

  • aras

    I’ll say let Lin play like this and they will chew him up that goes for kemba aswell let both om them play like this its going to be a field day for the opponent.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    too much Al-fense

  • BobbyH

    Lin is always the easy target for Ref.

  • Alain Gervais

    not true . We had no choice but to play that

  • sws94

    Lin is having a poor game. No way around it. Has to be injuries, he just has no energy to do what he can do. For some reason, Cliff is sticking with him.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    it was kemba iso then al-fense. always has been

  • Alain Gervais

    yup

  • KWC

    Feels like a loss tomorrow if they play like this.

  • aras

    Games like this is why lin gets called inconsistent.

  • sws94

    Is it unfair? I don’t think so.

  • aras

    nope its totally fair he is inconsistent

  • sws94

    He’s had one very impressive game on NBATV and 2 very poor ones. Unless he does something big in the 4Q, which he may. But he looks very off today.

  • DX

    Can’t argue.

  • Alain Gervais

    ts his shot. New form has been up and down

  • vincent

    We are losing to a wallless wizards

  • Whitman Lam

    Injuries + plus super biased ref calls = Bad game

  • aras

    untill he is predictable as a player he will always be like this 1 good game 3 bad games and so on

  • Whitman Lam

    Wizards Big men >>> Hornets big man.

  • aras

    lol its not his shot this is Lin in a nutshell his whole career.

  • sws94

    Finishing at the rim is down too.

  • sws94

    His highs are very high. He looks like a star player when he’s on. That’s what is so confusing and frustrating.

  • HVJoy

    The Wizards commentators said, ” Lin is trying to see if he still has teeth,’ after Lin was fouled by Nene.

  • aras

    Teams want a predictable PG. someone who can get you at least double digit in points and 7-8 assist a game…sadly with Lin its like a rollercoaster.

  • aras

    sadly

  • Alain Gervais

    If your shot is consistent then you are consistent. He is getting his shots but he is missing.

  • aras

    its the most frustrating thing to watch in the nba….thats why these days if i see he is not having a good game i change game. not worth it to watch i’d rather watch a terrible bulls team.

  • aras

    dude Lin has been like this since the rockets up and down one game his handles are real good he is slick with the ball passing is crisp shooting is crisp. next game its like a D-league player lost in the game.

  • Whitman Lam

    The question is, should coach Cliff play the starters extra minutes to try to win this ? …. Or should he just rest them, pull out the 3rd stringers and get ready for tomorrow night’s game at Boston.

  • DX

    Stop finding excuse. Bad is bad, no one care what’s the reason. If Lin want to improve, take it.

  • Alain Gervais

    Its not the same. Before it was big center he would struggle against. Now it don’t matter. Its curly on if he makes his shots

  • KWC

    If they lose this one then tomorrow doesn’t matter right?

  • Lefon Jang

    it’s only a 7 pts game and lots of time left

  • jimmyL

    Not many players get 7-8 assists a game thats rare now

  • sws94

    Batum? Westbrook? Wall?

  • sws94

    Cliff is going with Lin today. Hope Lin finds something.

  • aras

    dude he cant even get by ramon sessions….are you serious? we are watching the same game he looks bad out there…Lin on a good day demolishes sessions….he looks so unsecure out there its like watching a different player.

  • Lefon Jang

    4 pts game. It’s show time!

  • Whitman Lam

    Lin just needs to play good defense, make good passes, be a positive on the floor instead of a negative.

  • Alain Gervais

    Defense is a team concept.

  • sws94

    Somehow, the lead is cut to 4. Nice play by Kemba there to Al. That’s the best way to feed him.

  • Whitman Lam

    Lin out, Lee comes in. And Sessions hits a 3 pointer right after.

  • aras

    Chris paul,Rubio,Wall,Westbrook, lin could easily average 7 assist a game.

  • sws94

    Lee in for Lin now. Might be it for Lin. If so, 1 point.

  • jimmyL

    5.8 apg for batum and only 7 players in the entire league average 7+ apg only 5 of wich are PG

  • Alain Gervais

    Game over

  • Lefon Jang

    of course the lead up by 12 as soon as Lin’s out

  • Alain Gervais

    Another 1 point game second this season

  • aras

    Ball handling is individual, defend him all you want but it’s the truth. Lin is incosistent as a player. Lin on a good day is confident with the ball and brings the challenge. Lin on a bad day is like this. what did dwight say again? Lin with confidence is great but without?

  • Whitman Lam

    Lin comes out, Wizards go on a run from 4 to 12 pt lead. Coincidence ?

  • vincent

    Everyone has off nights just frustrating cuz kemba and batumget to play through their mistakes

  • KWC

    Well don’t think it would have been be much difference if he was in.

  • Lefon Jang

    It would coz he’s the only one rushes out to shooters

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    last year’s hornets for the lose

  • jimmyL

    only 5 PGs average 7+apg is that not rare? Lin is not a top 10PG i dont expect him to average 7apg hes not even starting hes more of a score first pg who can also dish out some assists but not a 7+apg not many PGs can do that anymore

  • Whitman Lam

    It would, because he’s a better defender than Daniels.

  • jimmyL

    They are franchise players so they get the privilege

  • aras

    as a starter i mean not as a bench. i can see lin averagin around 7 assists if he starts. when he gets his stuff together as player definatly…will that time come is the question?

  • Alain Gervais

    Im not defending anything. What dwight said is true. Just less so now then before. Had 3 wide open shots at the three if he made it the defense would step up. Which would open the lanes. Teams are trading his PNR and leaving the three shot open. Which is why he takes that shot. Not because he “cant get passes session”

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    they’re pretty crappy

  • BobbyH

    2 more games to forget. Comes payoff and see if Lin can gear up. Just rest and stay healthy.

  • Lefon Jang

    Playing with Al is the worse thing that could’ve happened to Lin. I’m sure Kemba doesn’t want Al in the first unit ever again!

  • Alain Gervais

    Thats not true has no effect. Just missed shots

  • KWC

    Does not look like a playoff team.

  • jimmyL

    His inconsistency probably won’t go away
    He’s working hard but he still looks lost in some games or like he lost confidence
    He’s still a decent player so I think 6th man suits him well

  • noob

    This hornets team is too soft on the inside. Gonna get killed in the playoffs

  • Lefon Jang

    It affects a lot of the inside drives and ball movements with give Lin momentum.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    can’t wait to see a REAL offensive system next year when Lin joins the Sixers

  • aras

    this has happened several times this season this is not the only time Lin has played like this…it has not changed for him i dont see a real change yet. maybe a minimal one but a real change in lin as a player ? nah not really if im being honest. maybe his tempo has slowed down a bit but other than that? same things keep happening. he has a good game followed up by 2 bad ones usually. id take Lin averaging 11-12 points a game every game than seeing him blast for 30 and then gets 1 point next game.

  • Alain Gervais

    Its not “Ideal”. Lin has develop enough where it don’t matter. If he makes his threes which all was wide open its a deferent game. All his game depend on theater his shots are on or off. All the shots he wanted he got. Just missed

  • aras

    inconsistency will keep him on the bench i honestly dont know if he’ll ever get rid of it…

  • sws94

    Lee. Just missed 2 open 3s. Tough day like others.

  • Lefon Jang

    A lot of the 3s that he made are off the dribbles where the defense went under the screen. But with Alfense none of that exist. All Lin does now was feeding Al.

  • sws94

    He’s looked great with Al at times. Sometimes they look good, sometimes awful.

  • Whitman Lam

    This whole Hornets team is out of whack. Can’t defend a simple pick n’ roll. Bigs are too weak in the paint. Thanks for wasting my Saturday morning, I could’ve been out shopping or jogging.

  • Alain Gervais

    Well thats what makes Lin different he does have flashes of brilliance. Its a question weather he fully releases it or not. Hope the new form settles because his shooting has been worst then last year.

  • HVJoy

    Lin appeared to play injured, should’ve rested for this game.

  • sws94

    Lee is in with the 3rd stringers.

  • Whitman Lam

    Game is totally out of reach now. Might as well rest the key players and give Gutierrez and Hansbrough some play time.

  • jimmyL

    they are doing fine

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    Big Al is so bad. can’t even move on defense leading to wide open lanes for guards. hope the Hornets keep him next season

  • Lefon Jang

    Hardly when Al’s in with him the offense always runs through Al. With 20 minutes games it’s hard to get into rhythm if all he does is set up Al. When he’s starting Al wasn’t there a big chunk of the time!

  • jimmyL

    another inconsistent player
    good defense though

  • sws94

    By choice. He couldn’t get his own game going. He wasn’t getting inside on cuts on give and go’s. The ball movement in the Knick game with Al and Lin was superb. They can move and mix and match Alfense with Lin ball when they want to. Just didn’t materialize this game.

  • aras

    Sessions gets flashes of brilliance JJ barea gets flashes of brilliance. Want me to be honest? if i had a Nba team i would not pick Lin as my PG thats being honest because of inconsistency. no matter how much of a fan i am of him i’d rather Pick someone Like a jeff teague or isiah over him.

  • Alain Gervais

    that’s was the only option he couldn’t make a three or drive. Or make a midrange shot and he also had no mid range game today. Just had nothing

  • KWC

    They haven’t really done well against BOS this season so probably another loss tomorrow.

  • Alain Gervais

    yup

  • DX

    It seems Lin’s worst game this season. 21 minutes, 0-6, 1 points, 3 asts. 3 TOs.

  • Alain Gervais

    Then why follow him?

  • Lefon Jang

    What are you talking about? In the Knicks game he fed Al all night long. one of the 3s that Lin shot was at the end of the game where he shouldn’t have shot it.

  • gum

    My son in law, John, are at the game..I hope this subpar game would not discourage Jeremy and his team mates..Also Jeremy Links
    devoted fans..

  • aras

    because i am a fan. note that i said because of incositency. If lin was consistent i would pick him in a heartbeat. would you pick someone who you were not sure what he was going to give you night in night out?

  • Lefon Jang

    There’re also 3 other guys on the floor beside Al. Between them Lin hardly has any offensive looks! Lin’s better shooting off the dribbles.

  • Alain Gervais

    Well i think He is close but to be honest eve been close for so long. Lin will keep trying hard no matter what. I believe eventually he will get it. He is closer this year then he was last year. Would you agree?

  • sws94

    It’s not ideal, but Lin can play well with Al if he takes it to the hole and plays his game and uses Alfense strategically. Of course, some of it may be on coach and what he’s calling. When Kemba is in, he still plays his game and mixes Alfense in.

  • Alain Gervais

    He missed those as well

  • HVJoy

    You are not alone in your frustration. Well, it’s not too late to go “shopping or jogging”.

  • sws94

    He doesn’t seem that inconsistent. His defense is quite good. Lin is a more impactful player than Lee who is a complementary player.

  • sws94

    Horrible game. But, you know, Lin can play great tomorrow if he isn’t too injured. I hope so. Forget this game.

  • aras

    i dont know dude i honestly dont know..this season i was hoping was it…too many seasons where you get let down. Next season is probably last chance to prove to the nba he is a starter. do i have faith in him? yes i do because i know that if he just fixes these mental problems he has its a done deal. this is why its so annoying its got nothing to do with basketball its in his head.

  • Lefon Jang

    Of course it’s not ideal. That’s what I’m saying, Lin’s offense suffered playing with Al. The second unit is all about Alfense now. It wasn’t like that before.

  • Alain Gervais

    Unless he gets a starting spot i wouldn’t want him to change teams. His inconsistent playing situation with coaches and players is not helping the issue.

  • Alain Gervais

    He had a 1 point game before

  • aras

    that is true. If he is changing teams i hope it will be the last one in a looong while. for better or worse to be honest. its not always going to be sunshine and rainbows.

  • KWC

    So, can we say Lin is a high variance player

  • Alain Gervais

    This is why i don’t want Lin to change teams like he does clothes. He needs a constant situation in order for him to finally be consistent. If every year you moved from school to school how would you do in school?

  • Alain Gervais

    agreed . Be patient…….Any day now

  • I am The Jason

    Lin with only 1 point. Thats gotta to hurt. Clifford should let the starters and Lin rest the last two games because I don’t see them moving up higher than the 6th seed.

  • HVJoy

    Does John have any insight/observations to share about the game today?

    Lin had a forgetable one, perhaps due to lingering elbow and back injury. Hope he does better in the next game vs. Celtics.

  • aras

    Im telling people this now Lin should go to the spurs if he gets the chance and never leave if he can. Stats dont mean bull over there winning like a team does.

  • Did Lin struggle with shooting/scoring due to his elbow?
    He should get plenty of rest for next 2 games if that’s the case

  • sws94

    Alain, I’m not going to get a good reaction but I think Lin should stay put right where he is. He’s had a very up and down season offensively and overall, he’s been down. He’s now established he is a solid defensive player. Cliff does trust him in the clutch and will give him minutes and Lin knows what he has in Charlotte. Lin needs stability. Same system, same core players and maybe he can then get back to the best Lin he can be. He wasn’t this season. He hasn’t strung together a consistent season of overall good play. He’s a roller-coaster with big extremes. Today he was awful and he’s been awful in many games. In many games he’s played like a superstar starter. But he has both in his output, objectively.

    If he’s an FA next season, he has far more potential because he would have worked out his shot hopefully, has another summer to do what the Hornets suggest to improve offensively, and will get his TS and finishing at the rim and 3 point percentage and FG percentage all up. I’m not one who believes if he gets to start it will be in an ideal situation and his 12 start percentage will be his norm. I don’t think so. I think it is a great 12 games, but 78 or so he’s likely to play. I question if he can sustain it. and that’s my honest opinion and I think it is fair. I hope he has a great playoff, but he’s very unpredictable.

  • sws94

    I don’t agree. He’d frustrate Pop now. Maybe after next season.

  • kauaiblue

    No way. Out of that kessel. Starter. Dont settle jlin.

  • steven ko

    get ready for a JLin vs Schroeder show down! colangelo and d’antoni will be watching closely.

  • kauaiblue

    Oh man, sorry you didnt see a great performance. I almost shelled out big bucks to jlin against knicks and nets. Glad i didnt.

  • aras

    just saying Lin might be better off in a team that focuses on playing basketball the way it should be played.

  • sws94

    Starting on a bad team would be settling IMO. It’s all perspective. Play on a competitive team and get as good as possible after a somewhat down season.,

  • kauaiblue

    Jlin gonna shut that chump down.

  • kauaiblue

    Thats what im saying too. Why risk playing on an injured elbow when u dont have to?

  • rookie75094

    What if he turns that bad team into a competitive one? He has done it before…many times

  • kauaiblue

    No, u give him the keys and u wont be disappointed.

  • sws94

    I saw Pop go crazy on Green after leaving a 3 point shooter open and nowhere near as open as Lin tends to leave them. Pop would be all over Lin about that, especially after the 3rd time he did it. I’m not sure Lin would play that much and in what position. Parker is starting PG for years to come and Mills is his backup who doesn’t get the minutes Lin gets in Charlotte.

  • sws94

    Lin has had good games against him. But Schroeder is on a roll now and his team is playing way better than Lin’s. He’ll get screens and he’s fast. He shoots OK also. And his D is very good. He’s a challenge, don’t underestimate him Lin fans.

  • kauaiblue

    All jlin needs is someone who will give him the oppt. Every team and coach other than dantoni have taken affirmative steps to deny him success.

  • aras

    I think the spurs would be the perfect place because of everything you just said about pop yelling. pop yells at everyone. pfft mills? please Lin is miles better and pop probably knows it. I believe pop and the staff would mold Lin into a better player. Pop is a as fair of a coach as you will get. He is a REAL basketball coach.

  • sws94

    Best case scenario, sure. But his PT may be down considerably to near 20 PPG, not the 26/27 he gets on Charlotte. It would be a tough season of tough love on Lin.

  • steven ko

    it’s time to talk about…

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iwmRMCC1L7A

  • FrankW

    You mean like AAPL and TSA? Heart attack in the short run, low risk high reward in the long run, for those who could take the heat without losing sleep. I would not short JLin

  • aras

    and everyone should be alright with that because why? the best man plays if Lin plays better he’ll play more and that would be it. and Lin with the spurs playing with the kind of players they have? i believe it would be a piece of cake for him to play basketball with that team more than any other team.

    Aaaaand he’ll have legitimate big mens….

  • sws94

    I wouldn’t bank on that. I’d like Lin to work on his own game and play with the highest talent possible at this stage of his career. That’s a bigger challenge than making poor players better. And Lin needs the right bad players to do well. He can’t do it with just any bad group of players.

  • HVJoy

    Hornets let a winnable game slip. The whole squad seemed to be lack of energy. I don’t know if the NOON game time has anything to do with the lackluster performance. Even the SG-minded Walker had only 16 points, way below his season average.

    It appears that Lin is still coping with the lingering back and elbow injury. I hope he would rest for the final 2 games of the regular season.

  • steven ko

    Lin will have to completely outplay Schroeder for the Hornets to even have a chance

  • sws94

    Yes.

  • sws94

    I can deal with it. I’m not sure many Lin fans will enjoy that. May turn on Pop. How come Lin doesn’t play? etc.

  • sws94

    It was best when Lamb had it going. It was arguably their best unit. That said, sometimes Al and Lin work well together.

  • aras

    and? lol i know there would not be any bias towards Lin if that happens. If lin plays well he’ll play

  • sws94

    He’d say no. Watching him, he didn’t look right. never got into his rhythm and his shots just missed, most of them.

  • donsmacau

    What you “want” won’t matter to JLIN. … and its just one final move left, from then on it’s many successful years leading.

    JLIN moving to his starting point guard job with Sixers.

  • sws94

    And that’s possible. But Lin better be ready for suffocating defense. That’s what Atlanta will do to him in the playoffs. No space.

  • donsmacau

    He’d say yes.

    Hope he sits out since anything above 6th seed is basically unrealstic now.

  • sws94

    Well, I don’t think it is likely he’ll go to the Spurs. I won’t be upset if he does and we’ll see what happens if that’s the case.

  • HVJoy

    Or rather, Lin should rest for the last two games to recover.

  • Spot

    Happens. Move on. And it happened to everybody in the team. Maybe they weren’t prepared to play at Noon.

  • donsmacau

    JLIN has an ankle injury, lower back injury, shoulder and elbow.

    Clifford has mad him play 75+ games even while hurt – there would be variance for any player

  • gum

    I am answering for John..He thinks the entire team looked flat..Jeremy seemed to be least effective with his penetration.

    John is driving now..so I am his spokeswoman..He missed his social dance party to keep his favorite mother in law happy!

  • sws94

    Ball moved back to him in the Knicks game. Not so much this game. Lin’s PG play in the Knicks game was fantastic and Lin scored in double figures.

  • sws94

    Sorry, he only scored 6. But his facilitation was excellent in the 2nd half of that game.

  • HVJoy

    I agree.

  • donsmacau

    Kembatum didn’t even really face suffocating defense today which they invariably wilt under against playoff caliber teams.

    Kembatum just missed shots and couldn’t defend the perimeter or paint.

  • donsmacau

    “Big time players, make big time plays” – Kemba Walker
    … unless it’s in big time situations against big time (elite) teams in this case even against a small time team

    Kemba a STARTER – started slow again and really needs to see a sports psychologist – can’t seem to win the big game. This single game would have given them a shot at Home court and he blew it again.

  • sws94

    Not only Dwight said that. IMO, well, I won’t say it. I want to stay positive on Lin as is the spirit of this forum that psalm234 created. My positive is Lin has great bounce-back games after subpar ones. So, if his body and spirit and whatever else that makes up for his confidence appears in the next game and a few games in the playoffs, Lin will be that crisp ball handler, passer, effective driver that he is when he gets it going.

  • Spot

    Jeremy isn’t allowed to brick shot after shot like other stars. I mean, Curry can shoot 3-14 from downtown and no one questions his skills. When it comes to Jeremy, the whole world falls apart.

    Calm down. Happens. Hopefully Jeremy will have his team next season to find his rhythm even in his bad games.

  • sws94

    Lin’s flashes of brilliance or brighter and more potent. That’s my bias. That’s why I’m here.

  • donsmacau

    At this point it’s abundantly clear that the starters will fair no worse against CLE or TOR because if they play like this against MIA, BOS or ATL the end result and the manner of the result will be the same.

    Only one player on the Hornets can LEAD a playoff round victory over those teams and that player won’t be allowed to lead any games.

    There is no reason for JLIN to play any more regular season games – in favor of resting injuries and hope beyond hope that Clifford comes to his senses before turning to JLIN when down 0-3 in round one.

  • Spot

    Schroeder isn’t half as good as Jeremy. And if MDA is the coach no way he could ask a different player than Jeremy.

  • sws94

    I want him to delay by one season that starting spot. I’ll be honest. Because he has problems handling the ball sometimes. I can’t say why sometimes his handling is sharper and crisper and he handles pressure well and sometimes he doesn’t. I just see that as one of those things that varies from game to game. But he needs that handling to be trusted by coaches as a starting PG. And if he starts, I want him to continue to start and not go back to the bench.

    If he doesn’t get the starting role on a competitive or nearly competitive team, then he can still be great as a 6th man type. But I think he needs another season to fine-tune his game and get consistently confident in it.

  • sws94

    That’s almost 6 for Batum, and off-guard. At PG, Lin is capable and the league knows it. But they also think he can be disrupted off of the dribble. I think, when Lin gets it going. Teams foul him because they can’t stop him from penetrating. When he isn’t, the ball gets slapped from him on the drive or he is forced into picking up the dribble in the paint. That’s his dilemma as a PG in my analysis. Could be wrong of course, those are my observations.

  • HVJoy

    It has to feel good to have such a devoted son in law! He would put aide other social event to attend the NBA game to keep you happy.

    You must be a great mother in law in his eyes.

  • sws94

    Lin has a weird way of playing terribly in 3Qs and strong in the 4th. Doesn’t always happen but I stick with him. All game, no matter what.

  • donsmacau

    Jeremy is never discouraged, his teammates on the other hand.

    Was JLIN discouraged after 7-30 Q1 against Spurs?

  • BobbyH

    Bad game. Move on. Let’s go Lakers. Let’s go Mavs, UTA.

  • HVJoy

    Yes. Go Lakers. Go Mavs. Go Jazz.

  • guest

    Lin needs his afternoon nap to be effective. No surprise he didn’t do well in this game.

  • aras

    Yes psalm has created a positive atmosphere here in this forum. But Lins potential is big and the way he is playing is not justifying his talent thats why. I might sound harsh when i write like this but in my opinion the ones that are harsh are the ones that are labeling Lin as a bench player 6th man and being content with it.

  • BobbyH

    LOL. See if we can prove it with historical data.

  • JE Ballew

    Hornets had closed the gap 84-88 with Lin playing fourth quarter. He was replaced at the 6:48 mark by Lee. The score went to 84 to 96. at 4:05. It was 86 to 102. at 3:43.. Lin did not have a good game but they might have won if he hadn’t been taken out in the fourth quarter.

  • JE Ballew

    IMO, it be worth every minute.

  • HVJoy

    True. His shots may be off (due to lingering injuries probably), but his defense was strong, and he was impactful on court. As usual, he was a good facilitator in game.

  • Lefon Jang

    Numbers don’t lie! Lin’s stats clearly shows that he plays and shoots much better as a starter. He’s able to get into a rhythm with more touches and with more offenses running through him. His problem now with the second unit is clearly because Al is their no.1 offense. Al posts up on every possession that he clogs the paint making it hard for Lin to drive. Kemba’s offense didn’t take off until Al got injured!

    And don’t think for a minute that Cliff trusts Lin to close out the game. Ever since the Hornets got Lee all that has changed. Lin is only closing out games whenever someone is injured or the Hornets pulling the big and going small ball. You have to look at the facts and figures rather than staying with an unsupported viewpoint based on your gut feeling.

  • jimmyL

    youll be surprised

  • sws94

    Over 78 games? He played as a starter full season last as a Rocket. He’ll have better numbers, but there’s more than that for a team to consider him as the main ball-handler which is what we are asking. Lin, to me, will have a significant role on any team. He’s defining what role with his playing and there are different camps on what that is.

  • sws94

    Schroeder is a very good player. Sometimes he outplays Lin, sometimes he doesn’t. Lin at his best is better than Schroeder at his IMO. I don’t see Schroeder every game to see his ups and downs though.

  • Lefon Jang

    Rockets was really not a good example. Lin wasn’t allowed to run the offense because of Harden. Just look at Dwight Howard now. He’s being demised because Harden doesn’t want him on the team.

  • Spot

    Don’t think so.

  • sws94

    It’s all we have. NYK was a long time ago in a PG friendly offense for a few weeks and then another coach took over and his numbers went down. Lin will most likely encounter ball-dominant players.

    I think sometimes we should forget Linsanity numbers and just look at the situation Lin encountered most of the time on his team. A ball-dominant player, he has to adjust to a system that may not feature him because I don’t want to count on him finding a system that is geared toward him again. Many systems are going to multiple facilitators and ball-dominant players exist on many teams. Looking at Chicago, Butler had the ball in his hands more than DRose did in their Cavs win. That’s just the case now.

    Lin did well that year post ASG when his knee was fully healed. But I don’t expect the starter numbers he has in spot starts this season in a starter’s role next season. In those games Lin went into a mentality of I have to score as Batum or Kemba are out, different than what he’s shows in most games where he tries to get several other players going and takes a modest amount of shots, less than other PGs in the same amount of minutes. Every so often, he may get a scorer’s mentality but I think less often than most fans would like to see.

  • Steppen03

    Just checked in…
    WHAT the heck happened??

  • heart

    Didn’t have time to watch today’s game, but when I see certain poster(s) came out of the wood work to post more than usual, then I know Lin didn’t have a good game. Never mind that Lin had already told us in his Instagram video that he is injured. Anyone playing injured is less effective and Lin is no different. Lin is hurting all over his body and the coach still does not let him rest for at least one game to heal his body when the playoff is clinched and the loss makes no difference in their standing. What kind of coaching is this? The last game vs Knicks, when they were up 20pts+, Cliff still played Lin until the end of the game. If this is what Cliff wants, then Hornets might be looking at 4 straight losses and first round exit, SMH!

  • aras

    One thing i will say about Lin is this If he gets the mental side of him together his full potential will be released. Its never about the skill with him it’s about the mental side. its tough but i have faith he will get it together. more often then not we tend to act like prophets and act like we can see into the future about what will happen. only time will tell what will happen.

  • donsmacau

    Yes, across every single JLIN fansite it is the same. When JLIN does not provide the decisive plays – they come out of the woodworks.

  • sws94

    It’s mental. Agreed. The skill is there to play well against anyone. His thinking gets in the way and that’s not uncommon.

  • Jeremy Lin thanks fan create video about his non-call flagrant foul, hope the league can review it & get more calls

    yeah i often forget about the injuries i am guilty of that. always writing in the heat of the moment usually after the games i analyse.

  • sws94

    There are no prophets here. Mosf of us have been right or wrong several times. It’s a great unknown with Lin, and sometimes when he plays exceptionally well, it’s even more rewarding because of that.

  • donsmacau

    Clifford and the team leaders prepare themselves mentally to win without JLIN when playing “BAD” teams. Kembatum called for the ball virtually every time they were on the floor with JLIN even Batum this game.

    Clifford does not prepare the team to win without JLIN for “ELITE” teams because they know they can’t beat elites without JLIN.

    Kemba really needs to see a sports psychiatrist because he has a serious mental block which impedes his ability to lead WINS when the situation is dire or against elite opponents.

  • donsmacau

    For everyone who was negative about the creation of this video/letters you can all go RETURN to your huts now and speak amongst yourselves about how Cody gets it just as bad.

    JLIN has spoken definitively.

  • donsmacau

    Tomorrow is the press conference – will be very interesting if he speaks free agency.

  • sws94

    It’s possible Lin was asked if he wanted to go or not and he will always say yes. I think Batum was cleared to play but didn’t due to pain threshold. Lin just plays regardless, that’s his old-school warrior makeup. If he’s cleared to play, he’ll play.

  • Spot

    Draft Ingram. Sign Lin and Gallinari. If Embiid is fit, sky’s the limit

  • heart

    Thank you Lin for acknowledging the hard work of (JAD, Jenny, KP Chan) your ardent fans and some others at large who deeply care for you to bring attention to the NBA of your non-call of flagrant fouls. I appreciate hearing you say this. This shows that you do pay attention to your fans and what we see happening to you are true. You have been suffering alone, but no more, we are behind you. Sign, Heart!

  • Lefon Jang

    I’m not looking at Linsanity number. I’m looking at the number that he posted this year with the Hornets. He clearly played better as a starter. What he has now that’s he didn’t have then is his defense. No coaches can use defense as an excuse now to minimize Lin. He deserves another shot at the limelight.

  • HVJoy

    “What happened on the film, it’s exactly what happened.” said Lin of the video. I am happy to hear the gratitude from Lin of the unconditional support of his fans.

    I am so PROUD of the Lin fans who created and distributed the video and the letter to Commissioner Silver.

  • donsmacau

    Dario Saric coming from Euroleague next season also shoots better 3s than Batum is longer at 6’11” and is a high BB IQ passer.

  • Spot

    Saric will play PF.

  • heart

    Thank you for confessing, lol. Please ease up on him for now. He’s injured and needs time to heal. Thanks again.

  • heart

    You and I and many others have been praying and continue to pray for Lin to reunite w/ MDA. Hopefully, we hear MDA takes the HC reign soon, then it’s imminent that their fate shall meet again, God’s willing!

  • donsmacau

    The situation in Philadelphia is still quite sensitive so I can’t imagine Bryan would talk much about HC tomorrow.

    But it is reasonable that a GM must be allowed to work with a head coach that he feels comfortable with.

  • Spot

    I only hope MDA will ask Jeremy. I want to see Jeremy playing free. That’s what I’m asking since 2012.

  • sws94

    Again, I think that’s spot starting subbing for players that are depended on to score so he was more active than usual. I think a more realistic number for Lin is 14/6 or maybe 15 because I don’t think he looks to score that much. But also a lot is depending on system and coach/personnel. It’s not easy to predict. He played better with more minutes which happens to be starting. But it may just be minutes to work out his game as well as he has had big games from the bench as well.

    Some players deserve their shots. Barrea performs exceptionally well as a starter vs. off of the bench. Sessions has done well as a starter and he’s now off of the bench. I hope Lin gets the best chance but I still think his game has to be shown to be more consistent for competitive teams to trust him as primary ball handler. It’s based on what I glean on basketball forums and from people that like Lin. Say he’s a dangerous player, but not really consistent. And that’s been the case this season. His best chance at starting and being trusted to keep the job may be with better stats than he produced this season and not signing long-term anything this upcoming season.

  • Steppen03

    The game shows how this Hornets team really is without JL7’s full support.

  • sws94

    The whole team was bad. I can’t think of one team member that had a good game. All played below their standards. But I think Lin is needed to beat most teams for sure.

  • Steppen03

    Maybe the Lakers win one today for themselves. This is the game I’m rooting for… Let’s Go, Lakers!

  • heart

    After seeing the video showing BBrown sounded angry and upset over Hinkie’s departure, I would say he’s no longer fit in the 76rs future plan. Like his mentor, Hinkie, I pray that BBrown should also submit his 13-page resignation soon, so 76rs can move on asap. No need to hang around and be upset of the past, SMH!

  • donsmacau

    Truly was a 13 page manifesto, Hinkie even reference an extinct bird and Elon Musk — weird to say the least.

  • KWC

    No defense and down by 12 already. Not likely to happen.

  • Lefon Jang

    Whether it’s spot starting subbing for players or not, numbers don’t lie. It shows that he’s better as a starter. Base on that the argument of him as a bench player doesn’t really fly. You can’t keep saying that he should come off the bench when all his numbers indicate otherwise. So if he plays better because he’s active then be it. He should be given a chance to be active in that case coz he’s better active.

  • HVJoy

    Proof is in the pudding — stats.

  • sws94

    No dispute he’s better as a starter. The dispute is what type of numbers he puts up as a starter over a season. His consistency is disputable. As is how he plays with some guys vs. others. I care much more about total minutes and who he plays with vs. starter or bench. If he plays the same amount of minutes and with players that compliment his style from the bench, I’d personally rather he do that than start with players that don’t fit well with him. If he plays with players that fit him well in the starting unit, that’s most preferred. What I’m not sure about is Lin over the course of the year. And injuries matter. They affect any player’s game and a lot of what he needs to do can be affected by them.

  • sws94

    Which don’t work in Lin’s favor for most clubs. They will look at his overall stats this season, see where he is down, and they don’t put the same weight on starter/bench that we do. Just TS, 3 point percentage, assists to TO ratio, etc. Also Defensive rating and such.

  • takeme2cruz

    Last 10 games starting right after historic come back and historic defeat the power team Spurs leading by Lin,

    -Hornets are 6-4 and all their Ws were against team under .500 (playoff eliminated).

    -3 of their loses were against Eastern conf. playoff teams and 1 today against non-playoff/non-Wall Wizards.

    Clifford’s new rotation and lineup are finally being exposed. He thinks he can win with Lin on the bench in the 4Q? 4 game swept is coming no mater who they’ll meet in the 1st round.

  • heart

    Yep. Read some of Hinkie’s writing, I’m not impressed w/ his communication skills, written or oral. Hinkie is a statistician. He’s good at playing the numbers game. He has no interpersonal skills like Morey. Hinkie rode the coat-tail of Morey into the 76rs GM job, IMO. Morey had Hinkie take on that player’s contract (forgot his name) who was afraid of flying on airplane. Do you remember? I felt bad for 76rs then.

  • donsmacau

    Lakers coming back 2pts

  • Lefon Jang

    But he’s not playing with players that compliment his style. Al doesn’t do PnR. He posts up all the time and clogs the paint. And Lin’s playing with others that can’t score and wasting his assists. As a starter he plays with better players that can finish plays. On top of that he has an increasing chance of getting the ball back instead of the one-and-done passes to Al. Why are we disputing the uncertainty of the future when the now shows that he’s capable?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I’s meaningless to play Lin now, Clifford. Let him rest.
    With elbow hurt like this, Lin needs time to recover and playing him that much every game is insane.

  • Lefon Jang

    That’s the reason why he shouldn’t be the bench. He is a wasted talent coming off the bench!

  • KWC

    Now down 13

  • KWC

    Looks like Rox is gonna win and Mavs gonna lose. All hopes on UTA.

  • sws94

    Start him for Lee? I think Lee fits the whole team better as a starter and that leaves Lin to be the game-changer off of the bench he can be and an optional closer. Starting with Kemba/Batum, and he’s not going to replace Kemba due to his high PPG and ball handling skills, he gets fewer touches than he does with only one of them besides him. Al is a new addition to the bench, and Lin does the best he can with him trying to get some chemistry with him. He sort of treats him like he did Dwight but Dwight is more mobile and has way better defense.

    It’s not a player’s consideration more than team consideration that will determine a coach’s playing groups unless the players are stats leaders who are definite starters. Lin isn’t one on this team. Lee could very well go to the bench next season as can Cody. Marv will probably continue to start if he’s retained.

    There is a lot of talk of Lin starting beyond this season, leaving the Hornets. That’s why I mentioned Lin beyond this season.

  • sws94

    Big picture, should rest. Lose the Boston game and maybe Orlando and rest Lin and maybe Batum too. Cliff will try to win with Batum and Lin, or just Lin if he has to. So, just hoping Lin doesn’t get any worse than he is now. The games played did not allow him 2 days rest much. But Wednesday is the last game and Cliff said the players will likely get reduced minutes that game.

  • takeme2cruz

    Agree with you but big picture is something Clifford is unable to see.

  • Lefon Jang

    From all that you just pointed out, what reason do you have for him to stay with the Hornets?

  • zxcvb
  • sws94

    Get better numbers to have a better chance for the following season. It’s more stay put, you know the coach/system and what to expect in minutes, rather than it is a good team or not. Work on some things, get better numbers then be in a position to get a better contract and starting PG somewhere competitive after next season (as I believe he wants to be on a contender). I think the change in shooting form and some physical things more brought his numbers down than the team and hopefully, they get a more Lin-friendly big man next season. It’s an option, not saying he should definitely do that however.

  • KWC

    Stars are lining up one at a time.

  • zxcvb

    Even with injuries, Lin would have beasted as starter (as stats this season show). But that’s not his role.
    When he plays backup SG, games like these happens just like they do for all bench players.

    I really don’t care about games like this. He’s elite as a starter, off and on as a bench player. Yawn. What matters is what happens when he starts or gets the ball against top teams.

  • cdblue10

    Change is coming as expected.

  • zxcvb

    If I’m Jeremy, my #1 priority is staying healthy for free agency.

    No need to strain yourself for a treadmill team like CHA that completely misuses and abuses your talents. If they won’t let the only player capable of beating top teams play his game for even 20mpg, let ’em lose. Even the playoffs are a waste. Kemba Ball will blow it as always in big games and Lin will stand in the corner as a 3&D SG for some reason.

    MDA knows what Lin can do and Lin has already re-proven himself this year with his stats as starter and his games against CLE and SAS and TOR. Just stay healthy and wait…

  • bolero

    Hinkie still has the pen that JLin used to signed that houston contract..

  • donsmacau

    I like it, the Colangelos have no qualms about announcing who is in control at Philly.

  • Rick Johnson
  • Lefon Jang

    How do you expect him to do better as a bench when he’s playing with Al and an offensive system that run through Al? How do you explain that he shoots significantly better as a starter than coming off the bench? Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with his shooting, just needs to get into the flow. When all the numbers indicate that he should move on why do you want him to stay on playing in an offensive system that is set to fail him?

  • Whitman Lam

    Schroeder is super fast but very skinny. Would be great if we can see Lin backing him down in the post under the basket.

  • donsmacau

    We know a guy from Harvard who has character…
    … and perseverance, integrity, superior intelligence, unselfishness, court awareness…etc…

  • zxcvb

    Exactly. He made a bunch of other remarks about “character” and “culture.” Lin is perfect for that.

  • heart

    Some more thoughts from Bryan Coangelos:

  • sws94

    Al may not be a Hornet next season. There is something wrong with Lin’s shooting. Starting or not starting shouldn’t determine how well he shoots when he either hits or misses wide open shots. He happened to shoot well most games he started, but he’s shot well games he didn’t as well like the Spurs game. He plays better when he has time to get into the flow, and that favors starting because of the rotations usually, but not always.

    I can’t say anything else about this starting vs. bench thing. The considerations of the coach is playing groups and balance and some coaches and organization like Lin’s ability to change the energy of the game from off of the bench as a big factor in their game plans. I don’t think the league sees Lin like we do and as much as I’ve mentioned that, the argument is always to start. I just want him to play minutes with good groups.

    But thanks for the civil discussion. Go Lin!

  • sws94

    A backup role isn’t crap. Is what Igoudala does on GSW crap? Or Whiteside on Miami? Just because a player is playing from the bench doesn’t mean he’s crap. It means that is what may fit the team better according to the coaching staff and front office, not that he’s an inferior player or not starter quality. I think a lot of people have it wrong about why some guys play off the bench and others don’t and big-minute bench players shouldn’t be denigrated nor should all starters be elevated simply because they start a game as complementary players.

    OK, everybody get a clue. Cliff doesn’t care if he wins anymore games. He did his part in the contract, he got the team to the playoffs, everything after that is gravy. IF he truly wanted to win, he would have went with what got him into the playoffs, Lin leading the bench to clean up after the starters. No he is going with Kemba so that he can pad his stats, and hope he gets the award for the MIP. Lin just needs to rest and save himself for FA. That’s my story and I’n sticking to it.

    Only if Cliff allows Lin to rest voluntarily, but we can see that he won’t. Seeing Lin struggling w/ injury, yet Cliff still sent him out to play. The time that we wanted Cliff to play Lin was when he was healthy and needed some PT to win some critical games during the season, not at the end of the season when the seed has already been determined. The only way I see that Lin can rest is to complain to the medical staff that he is hurting and injured, so that they cannot clear him to play. What is the chance that Lin will do that?

    I think he tried to win but Spurs couldn’t shoot. Backcourt of Green and Parker did not get it going. Leonard was kind of cold too, didn’t shoot as well as usual. LMA played well, but he needed help. Curry scored 37 but he’s so out of this world amazingly good, there’s nothing that can stop him really.

  • Win

    After the video go viral, I have visited a few Hornets forums to check out the reaction from Hornets fans and I just wanna share some thoughts on it.

    After a RealGM poster saying that he is impressed by Lin’s fans community and used JLinPortal as example which have held a fundraiser and arranged with the Suns for a special event night dedicated to them to presented a novelty check to the JLin Foundation, One of the charitably outreach programs that the JLin Foundation had done is with local Charlotte schools. So that means local Charlotte schools are indirectly being funded by members and posters on JLinPortal.

    Then he point out how JlinPortal engaging with Ronnie Nunn and getting his endorsement on their letter and video evidence to the NBA about all the flagrant fouls that go uncalled against JLin. He even point out how Stephanie Ready, Dell Curry, and Collins are joking nightly about how Lin gets hit in the head every game.

    There aren’t much comment except of cause from the loyal Lin’s fans @ realgm. However, what really caught my eyes was the comments from the so call loyal Hornets fans and GM Hornets Mods as below.

    1) A one liner from Forum Mod: Continue to be pretty creeped out by Lin’s fan base.

    2) A Senior Mod (over 15 years) He claimed he has watched the video and thinks that the examples used are about 50/50 which half are just ridiculous oversights from the officials and didn’t see anything should be considered flagrant on the other 50%. He went on and said people can easily made the same video for Cody Zeller.

    As you can see, these are the Mods of Hornets RealGM. They are down playing the obvious, being denial and try to make a case that Cody got the same treatment as Lin has.

    To me, I am not sure about previous seasons but I didn’t see any foul Cody has ever got this season was as hard as the one that Lin had.

    But the main point is, even if Cody did received a lot of hard fouls and didn’t get the flagrant call he deserved, as a SO CALL LOYAL HORNETS fans, all they did were sitting their butts in front of a TV or PC and doing nothing about it for all these years. All they did was saying how Charlotte is a small market, no one or media care about them, unfair treatment, etc, etc.

    And yet he continue and say Cody doesn’t have as much as fans as Lin did so there is no outrage. My question is, it is not only about Cody, it is also about Hornets as a team. % of fans of an individual player have nothing to with it. As a so call die hard Hornets fans base, they can go ahead and do the same as Lin’s fan did to support their team but nope, they choose to sitting their butts in front of the PC and complains about all these years.

    IMO, these Mods are nothing but a joke, a clown and a coward.

    on the other hand, I am so proud of Lin’s fans especially (JAD, Jenny, KP Chan). Hopefully all us Lin’s fan can get alone and
    continue to support Lin.

    🙂

  • JoeTeam

    Green has not had many good O games this year, don’t know why. I love SAS, but being a GSW fan and wanting that 72, I was so happy every time Green shot it. LMA was able to midrange at will.

    Curry just has to get 8 for the 400 record, and he said 2 weeks ago if he’s close to 400, he’s going to chuck. Wed night will be fun. They have to keep Zebo from getting hot.

    I think on SAS GSW in playoffs if it happens, GSW will win because of age. Parker, Manu, and now TD is not really a factor … GSW are just deep. I was glad to see 2nd unit do better this Q3, because 2nd unit has been outscored lately, Mem game I think too.

  • BobbyH

    Lin fans stand out and I am proud of being one of them.

  • kauaiblue

    Agreed. Even if they dont do anything, there is a record that fans complained about a legit concern. If they do nothing, then they can be held responsible later when there is a record of not taking action for their own player who has contractual rights under the collective bargaining agreement…

  • kauaiblue

    Its still good. There is a record of a legit complaint. And if they do nothing, that can be highlighted later.

  • LinMad

    I don’t understand how they are comparing Lin’s hits to Cody’s hits. Lin gets hit in the head almost daily, Cody might get hit in the arm or whatever but not in the face as much as Lin does.

    If you don’t like something you see, do something about it. It’s the same reason Kemba Walker didn’t make all star game this year. It’s because these “die hard” Hornets fans are not as passionate as we are about Lin and I think there is some jealousy which is why they downplay Lin or are oblivious to the fact that Clifford doesn’t treat Lin fairly either.

    I wouldn’t put all Hornets fans in the same category because I know some Hornets fans think the same as we do when Lin doesn’t get a call. I also think some of them believe Lin can start on a team which is why they don’t really care if Lin leaves this season cause he can start on another team.

    Off topic. Just wanted to share this link – a piano performance by a blind young Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii. Just totally amazing.

    Image the efforts and hard work behind it. It can relate to Lin’s hard works and it just shows what human being can achieve with greatness and determination.

    “Jeremy Lin said he’s gonna come to Taiwan in June. Early than the usual.” As told to Denis Ginobili the female Taiwanese reporter

    This is at least one month earlier than usual. Not sure if it means much but perhaps he and his agent have business back in Philadelphia which forces JLIN to alter his summer schedule.

    This might have nothing to do with Jeremy’s change in plans, but I thought I’d note this change in 2016 free-agency process. According to Adrian Wojnarowski (Mar 17, 2016) :

    “the NBA and the players association agreed to shorten the July free-agency moratorium and allow verbal commitments to become signed contracts in a shorter period of time, league sources told The Vertical. The NBA and union agreed to make an alteration to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, shortening the moratorium this summer to July 1-6, sources said.”

    SORRY FOR THE LONG POST, BUT I NEEDED TO GET THIS OFF MY CHEST.
    I was a jeremy Lin fan since Linsanity, kind of stopped following him during his first year during the rockets, but then saw the Linsanity documentary immediately when it came out and have been a fan ever since. I must say I am really proud of Jeremy Lin and the journey he has been through up and down. We all know how good Jeremy Lin is, but thats not the only reason why we follow him, we follow him because of who he is as a person and his beliefs. Hes the type of guy that gives an underdog hope. If all we cared about were his stats we would all be on that Steph Curry train right now. Just wanted to say how honored I am to share faith in a player in Jeremy Lin with everyone here despite his up and down performances. Even when Jeremy Lin has off nights like tonight it is an awesome feeling to have so many people still supporting him on this website. Lin fans who only show up when he has a 29 pt game against SA or a 24 and 8 game against CLE are not really Lin fans (no offense). We all know that if Lin reunites as a starting Point Guard under MDA he will be an all star caliber player. Look at point guards like Isaiah Thomas or heck Kemba Walker and Batum are now considered to be great players. It really comes down to having an opportunity. Lin was given that opportunity in New York for less than half a season. Thats like playing a demo of a video game. Sure it may be great, but it is limited in every bit and is really only a sneak peak. Stephen Curry is a great player, but his team is built entirely around him. Put curry in a different system and he does not do as well. Let’s really pray for his reuniting with MDA this season I know it was destined to happen after the two kept reminiscing about it each year.

  • webattorney

    When you realize that Asian-Americans, who look different outside, comprise in total less than 6% of the American population, it’s not easy to have political power. IMO, a lot of it is purely numbers game. This is all the more reason Asian-Americans have to support each other.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Some of the quotes in the Wikipedia entry for Tsujii are remarkable. Here is just one :

    “In an interview after the November 2011 Carnegie Hall debut recital of Tsujii, Van Cliburn said on TV Asahi, “What a thrill to hear this brilliant, very gifted, fabulous pianist. You feel God’s presence in the room when he played. His soul is so pure. His music is so wonderful, and it goes to infinity, to the highest heaven.”

    Obviously not appropriate to say it publicly, but it holds some truth.

    If the Hornets continue to play Kembaball, and all signs indicate that they will, then losing the series 1-4 (2-4 at best) to the Hawks is more than likely.

    Coincidentally, I was just thinking about the exact same thing when I boarded the shuttle to work this morning.

    I agreed with you except about Curry. Curry is really a step above everyone. It’s not just the 3s. He can go to the rim, he can do circus shots like it’s a layup, he has court vision, his no-looks are astounding, his handles are better than CP3s. etc etc. Jlin is not out of it – to me he’s got the goods to be like Curry if given the rock. But he’s not going to be as good as Curry overall, nor will he be as good as KT in 3s. Curry is just a class above LeBron, so really it’s how it should be – every few years, you get a change in the guard. I’m so glad kids today get to look up to Curry, KT, and JLin, instead of Kobe or Lebron or I dunno … these few are amazing, and they turn bball around and we’ll be seeing more great players who love team, love game, and love to be good people.

  • vin ent

    Curry is without a doubt one of the best, but id like to see how well hed play under byron scott. Or have him play shooting guard alongside james harden under mchale. All im saying is hes in the perfect situation, which is something lin had in Ny when carmelo was out

  • JoeTeam

    Hey, just because there’s bias against lin, you cannot say the other guy who is really great is not as great. Doesn’t make sense. And though I loved Linsanity, watched every game many times, and it was by the numbers the best start of anyone, JLin doesn’t have Curry’s shooting this year. He does have the passing, when he has the ball. But this year, Curry just stepped a whopping 10 steps ahead of everyone. He’s verging on 400 threes. Lin is not close. So, even if Lin got to be starting PG, he’d probably be top 5 easily. But best? Not like Curry. He would be as effective (imo) as KT, but he wouldn’t shoot 3s as well. KT today would have the best 3s in a season were it not for Curry. I think KT will surpass all but 2 of Curry’s best 3s seasons. Nobody else is close, not even Harden. That’s not a function of opportunity – these 2 guys just outshoot everyone by far, even Lin.

  • zxcvb

    The worst part is knowing how far the team could go with Lin in Kemba’s place. Only CLE would be a major challenge. The East is so wide-open, but Kemba ball and Lin marginalization make CHA a non-contender.

    Kemba has failed to deliver a single elite win this season while Lin has delivered in every rare instance he’s been allowed to shine. Batum injured against TOR? Lin wins with a 35p game. Kemba injured against CLE? Lin wins with a 25/8a game. Batum and Kemba so awful against SAS, they let Lin shoot more than them? Lin wins with 29/7r game.

    Colangelo/MDA drama in Philly is much more exciting than the inevitable garbage of CHA’s playoffs.

  • Spot

    I’m hoping for next season too

  • zxcvb

    Good call. Probably both of the above. Lin has a potentially career-changing decision to make this summer, and the shortened moratorium means he has to be back earlier to make that decision.

  • John Focker

    CHA would be AT LEAST 2nd seed, if not top seed, in the EC if Kembaball was kept under control at least during clutch time.

    Oh well, could’ve should’ve would’ve.

  • John Focker

    I think the point is that even great talent needs to be cultured in the right environment to shine its brightest. If GSW didn’t get rid of Monta and bet on Curry, they wouldn’t be where they’re at now and neither would Curry realize his maximum potential.

  • JoeTeam

    That is well known. And Curry did work toward that too, as he was nowhere near this level even with the changes. You cannot take things away from someone just because someone else is being held back. It’s 2 different things. One can, however, wish for JLin to get the rock that’s for sure. Curry didn’t go to Harvard, and I’m not upset about that …

  • vincent

    Thank you

  • John Focker

    As long as there’s that common denominator… 🙂

    And for the record, I do think Curry is awesome talent AND worked really hard. Difference between him and Jeremy is that the latter has to jump through fire hoops as opposed to regular, non-flamed hoops.

  • james brown

    he was allowed to grow and be the man, that’s why the oozing confidence on his game..both curry and jlin has talents but we are seeing only curry’s greatness because it was allowed to blossomed unlike a jeremy who has been cut and trimmed to the point of being left for dead…the questioned posed was, what if, curry and lin gets the reversed fate? would curry still be the greatest right now or not?

  • james brown

    and maybe some will be surprised about it here!

  • JoeTeam

    Well, it’s up to you what you want to do. I don’t think too much about that because everyone has their situation and that makes one special for what comes ahead. I don’t focus on what others have, just what is there and what I can do.

  • JoeTeam

    we don’t know what Curry had to jump through. Anyway, I saw Curry as having fragile ankles, not being able to take contact, etc. These last 2 yrs, he’s really improved in health and ability to take contact. Local news said he can dead lift 400 lbs, the most of any GSW player. So he’s ‘deceptively’ strong, lol.

    Anyway, my point is let’s not tear down Curry to uplift Lin, and let’s not worry about what Curry has that Lin doesn’t because JLin has his and will get his … but ya, bro, if you want to tear down JHarden or Melo or KW, ha ha, I’m game to be a hypocrite (jk).

  • Rick Johnson

    More media exposure. More there is the harder for the NBA to ignore:

    Nextshark: Video of Uncalled Fouls on Jeremy Lin Raises Suspicion of Racial Bias in the NBA
    http://nextshark.com/jeremy-lin-flagrant-fouls/

    As an Asian American playing basketball in the US, Jeremy Lin has experienced all sorts of racial prejudice, especially during his college years at Harvard. That’s why when he entered the NBA, he vowed to break racial stereotypes.

    “I feel like Asians in general don’t get the respect that we may deserve whether it comes to sports, basketball, or whatever it might be,” Lin said in an online interview in 2011.

    Five years and five NBA teams later, the undeniably talented point guard of Taiwanese descent, still seems to be battling racial bias on the court.

    A YouTube video posted by JAD 7534 early this month points out that Lin has been experiencing a ridiculous amount of unfair officiating throughout his NBA career.

    In the video, Lin is seen getting hit in the face or head too many times. Instead of referees calling a flagrant foul, however, they only call regular fouls or at times, none at all. Lin was also shown once in the video getting hit in the face, making his nose bleed but no foul was called.

    Suspecting that racial bias is somehow connected to the chronic no-calls, the video creator included a letter attributed to Jenny & KP Chan and directed to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver saying, “As fans of the NBA and its players, we care deeply about the quality and integrity of the game and the safety of the players… When we see dubious officiating by the NBA referees, we cannot help but question the integrity of the game at its very core.”

    He also points out how referees’ officiating can be faulty, “Throughout Lin’s six years in the NBA, we have continuously witnessed Lin as the recipient of numerous hard fouls with unnecessary and excessive force by other players. In these cases, the referees either didn’t make the calls or made incorrect calls.”

    “It’s disheartening to see Lin’s mistreatment by the NBA referees. As fans, we ask you to please review this matter seriously and to take action,” the note said.

    While the video is making rounds in social media, there is no official confirmation if an investigation or review is underway as of press time.

  • Steppen03

    Man, are we comparing Curry to JL7 ??? Like comparing Curry to MJ, or to Lebron, etc… It’s apple to orange for me… But I’ll bet on Curry to shine “even” playing alongside Harden, Melo, etc… He’s one of the greatest pure shooter and much more. With that said, is JL7 any less talented – I think not. But truth is: Curry > JL7. Will JL7 be fine with that – go ask him, shall we ? With that said, who do I like more ? JL7 all day, any day. He can be a great player one day. He has miles to grow. So does Curry, I believe.

  • LinMad

    Why Lin should win the 6MOY?

    Hornets made the playoffs this season against all odds and Lin has lead the team to win games against some of the top teams in the NBA. Defense also improved a lot. He’s also playing way above his contract.

  • Steppen03

    Honestly, I’m over it.
    JL7 doesn’t have to prove anything more to other people than to himself. Just play for God. Just play for himself. Just have fun out there. This game is about having fun. Joy. Don’t care what others think to themselves. They will only look like fools when they eat their own words.

    who was curry before? well he was also TO prone and seems nowhere to go with lots of potentials thats why gsw think it very clearly who to support with during that time? he was also injuty prone before and commonly called glass ankle…but , curry arrived at his destination and goal somewhat free from what jlin had..not to take anything from curry achievements because he is great right now and maybe with the right environment, jeremy can be too later, who knows!

    right now, no comparison is jeremy wit curry for curry already achieved his peak, while jlin has lots of road and detour to pass by right now!

  • james brown

    i do too but it seems the question post was not understood why the poster inject that even a great player will struggle when not promoted or pretected and harnessed to the point of being pushed out of the league. factors and right formula is still needed for one to achieve his greatest potentials!9that includes also one’s talent.

    and if this one is missed too, move forward!

  • dave lam

    I agree with you. Lost interest in the NBA until Linsanity . I think what made me a Lin Fan was not really what he was doing on the court but his post game interviews He speaks about faith and self beliefs.
    I lot of the success in sports has to do with having the proper mind set as well as the physical talent. Jeremy has both.

  • heart

    Yep. Each time Lin shines in one game, the coaches or whomever from FO make sure that he won’t do it again in the next game, in order to prevent Lin from overshadowing their franchise/preferred player(s). We fans clearly see improvements on Lin’s skills & game, but the org./coaches won’t let him thrive by providing continued support and/or favorable conditions for him to flourish. These types of nuisances and impediments that Lin has faced have happened w/ Rox, Lakers and now Hornets. In addition, the NBA referee is another factor that has subtly hindered Lin’s game. If Lin gets fair calls, imagine the type of games that he would have night in and night out even when he doesn’t shoot well. His bread and butter is in driving to the rim, and the refs know that that. They usually help the opponents by getting Lin into foul trouble early on certain important games. Lin gets some of the hardest fouls occurring right in front of the refs and not one whistle was heard nor one eye was blink for Lin’s health and safety on court. SMH!

  • CJSHYY

    Last year he didn’t come back before July 1st…. hope this year he will.

    I agree. He’s great but if he’s under the same situation like Lin probably will not good either.

  • There is no need to be sarcastic and antagonistic.

  • heart

    Not shock that the major sporting news, such as NBA, ESPN, Bleacher Report, etc. have not YET even mention nor cover this complaint even once. They’re blacking out this on-going embarrassing news. Their non-action speaks of their knowledge and deliberate ignorance/avoidance. Yet the news have made to Taiwan and China, and I’m glad they are beginning to cover it. Hope they continue to put more heat on the NBA. Kobe, Melo, Harden and whomever follow their violent acts need to be exposed. A picture is worth a thousand words. Lin fans need to keep track of not only these NBA players but also the referees names and numbers officiating the games whom allowed these egregious fouls to occur w/o calls. We have to print out this list to call them out along w/ video proofs if/when the injustice continues in the future.

Stewards, man …

  • JoeTeam

    I give you that, that every human if beaten down will have a different path. My point was you cannot compare JLin to Curry and discount his place just because we are Lin fans. Curry is today making LeBron obsolete. Let that sit for a bit and then enjoy a few GSW games and you will know – for whatever reason., Curry was starter when JLin was a rookie, and not he’s tops and JLin is probably tops on 2nd unit. Let JLin and he still be friends, and one day soon, JLin will be top 5. But as a fan, I cannot wish for him to be Curry because Curry has a different path and probably will be the best player of a few decades.

  • JoeTeam

    You are right, that’s why I won’t compare Lin to Curry but I feel right about wishing JLin had the ball over Melo, Harden, Kobe+Price, etc. Yep, that’s the difference that makes it not hypocritical, so thanks for letting me out of the moral dog pound.

  • Rick Johnson

    I think only way is if they see a decline in sales of Kobe, Melo, Harden merchandise and people start complaining to the companies selling their merchandise.

    We have to build the case first w/ documentation and proof, then send out to news media to cover. When the media starts picking up, the companies will take notice, simultaneously, the consumers/fans will react accordingly.

  • new game thread
    http://www.jlinportal.com/g81-cha-bos-game-thread/

    With only 2 games remaining in the regular season, it seems the Hornets is entrenched as the 6th seed unless they can win out the last 2 games and other Eastern teams lose games.

    1. Jeremy’s shooting was definitely impacted with the elbow bursitis as he has shot 23% FG (6-26) in 3 games after he shot well in the Raptors game with 46% FG (5-11). It would be better for him to rest in the final 2 games so he will be ready for the playoff.

    2. Will Coach Clifford try to win this game with a small possibility to secure a home-court advantage? Then if it doesn’t work, he will rest key players for the final game vs Orlando?

    Let’s go, JLin! Let’s hope and pray JLin can heal his injured elbows and shoulders to be ready for the playoff
    http://www.jlinportal.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Lin_LINE_YouCanDoIt.jpg

  • my guess it he’ll try to win today to get any home-court chance then rest key players on Wed vs Magic

  • yes, it’s actually a predictable outcome if the Hornets relies on hero-ball vs the Hawks. Even MJ said they need to win as a team but there have been too much hero-ball being implemented. It will be hard to change to play teamball in the playoff

    Wonderful report by you and thank you for sharing it.

    I do notice Zeller didn’t get calls often. We didn’t track his non-calls of course, and it’s not our interest either. But in fact, Cody just got a flagrant foul 1 called for him during last game against Wizards. The foul was on Mark Morris @11:41, Q1. So Cody did get a Flagrant foul called for him. Just don’t know how many flagrant fouls have called for him.

    In March, Reggie Jackson also committed a Flagrant 1 on Walker. In both cases, the refs called it right away and the Instant Replay Center reviewed them right away. But, both instant review and fagrant fouls never happened or called for Lin. Why is that? Our video is not about those 50/50 calls, those are contact on hands, arms, bodies and refs missed them sometimes. It happens to every players and we know that. Our video is about the excessive contacts in the head/face/neck. By rules, these contacts should be reviewed and assessed as flagrant if necessary. Why didn’t it ever happened to Lin? So they have no case, Lin still got the worst treatment.

    Like you said, they can do something for Cody if they feel Cody got mistreated. But they choose to do nothing for Cody and then they laughed at us and didn’t show any support to one of their own players? Yes, you’re right, they’re cowards, jokes & clowns. And I say they’re pathetic and cold.

    Anyway, it’s not about what they think about the fouls. Commentators (including opponents’), Ref Nunn, even the non Lin-fans, thought those should be flagrant after they saw the plays (look at the comments on Reddit). So it’s just them who are cold and unsupportive. It’s ok, we don’t need to engage them too much anyway.

    Or you are being too negative
    You might have experienced something but doesnt mean the asians as a whole have been mistreated

  • jimmyL

  • kauaiblue

  • kauaiblue

    uh, no again…

  • jimmyL

    what the rox accomplished last season is just as great as linsanity

  • kauaiblue

    Uh, no.

  • jimmyL

    or even greater
    They were a contending team throughout the season and in the post season
    if you call that a fluke, then how would you go about claiming Linsanity was not a fluke?
