    David the mod starter 3 different threads. This one is about Jlin, another on NBA trade/ FA, and a third one on Nets.

  • lleepar

    Has Lin cut his hair?

  • CJSHYY

    Looks like he did.

    Thank you Jeremy Lin, you inspire me every day to work or try to work as hard as you do, on the basketball court. You play with a tonofheart

  • Love Lin

    Whoa!!! His haircut.

  • NONONO

    are you sure the picture is new? I think we need ask Nets to sign Spencer Hawes.

  • ProLin

    I guess a JLin buddy posted it, who knows.

  • CJSHYY

    My friend said it’s not new. No earring. But why Lin wanted to put an old picture?

  • Kianainhi

    This is an old pic. 2014.

  • NONONO

    Nets might add some bonus in the contract for his hairstyle. 🙂

  • Maknusia

    Happy Independence Day! 🙂

    And Happy LIndependence to Jeremy…Go Nets Go Lin
    May he has the Liberty to run the team as he always aspired to do

  • Maknusia

    @psalm234:disqus I think having multiple thread under the rules/features of Disqus gonna be tough to moderate and follow the discussion.

    Because a member could reply to any message deep in the page and at times with personal attacks and its gonna under the radar, unless someone call us out by name

    Multiple thread only works with Forum format because new messages are always the last post..

    something for you to ponder…. 🙂

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! I think KD will like to work w Curry more than RW.

    NBA》他一句話打動了杜蘭特的心

    史提芬柯瑞「我只在乎總冠軍,球隊一哥讓給你」,這句話打動了杜蘭特的心,讓杜蘭特甘願背負著奧克拉荷馬球迷的謾罵,毅然離開雷霆轉戰勇士。

    柯瑞在杜蘭特加盟勇士的過程中扮演了關鍵角色,柯瑞不但親自出面遊說,而且還寫了一封短信,內容表達了柯瑞的誠意,其中最重要的是柯瑞願意讓出勇士一哥頭銜,也不在乎誰的球鞋賣得比對方多,甚至杜蘭特如果能在勇士拿到MVP殊榮,他會第一個站出來鼓掌叫好,他只希望能與杜蘭特攜手再奪一座總冠軍。

  • Maknusia

    Oh! I see….

  • Maknusia

    no worries…. 🙂

  • occupatio

    i dont like how there are so many threads. ppl dont know where to post things, and its not clear what threads to check.

  • Maknusia

    initial glitch…they will get use to it… 🙂

  • Lam

    I actually think its an improvement! For example this thread , people can post all those Lin social stuff, pics which for some people(and myself) may not be so interested it.

  • JoeTeam

    Yep, I have experienced those buried attacks, and mods don’t see it. It’s not worth feeding, but mods need to see those.

  • kittyhead

    It’s inconvenient for me to browse the different threads on the cell phone.

  • kittyhead

    In my poor memory, Lin posted the photo in the summer after he was traded to the Lakers?
    Another similar photo.

  • Parent of Lots of Kids

    Please combine all into one thread.

    Sooo excited for Linsanity to come back to NYC, but stinks that I can’t watch all of his games via League Pass now (I live in the NY area so all the Nets games will be blacked out).

  • HVJoy

    Glad to see another NY article by John Harder supporting Lin to Nets. The writer will “take this signing over Joakim Noah to the Knicks as a better signing” because (quoting him):

    1) AN AUTHENTIC POINT GUARD – Not since the Nets traded for Deron Williams in 2011 have they had a legitimate threat at the point guard position. More so, I think Lin is more versatile that Williams ever was. Lin will truly use his high intellect to help make plays with Brook Lopez. In fact, the pick-and-roll, which is an INCREDIBLE strength with both Lopez and Lin, will be highly utilized to the fullest…

    2) THE FURTHER INFUSION INTO THE ASIAN-AMERICAN MARKET…
    back in 2011-2012, “Linsanity” was a worldwide phenomenon and helped grow the NBA into Taiwan and China… Plus, with him being in the number one media market, Lin became an inspiration for young Asian-Americans. Now that he is back with Brooklyn, they have an opportunity for a second chance of lightning in a bottle…

    3) STICKING IT TO THE KNICKS – … I want the ineptitude of the Knicks to regret every time they play against Lin in a Brooklyn jersey. I want Lin to dominate the seemingly powerful 2016-2017 residents of MSG. I want J-Lin to be Knick-Killer on the court. And most of all, I want Lin to bring a title home to Brooklyn and become the #1 team in New York, something that would eat at James Dolan and Cablevision…

  • Guest

    Nets is the worst team in the NBA????

  • ManuGinobilin

    Is there a way you guys could add a chatroom?

    Would be nice for games. Forums/Disqus would still be active, and would take over post-game.

  • ProLin

    a mod would be present at all times though or some famous lin fans will go at each other again…

  • ProLin

    Would you like to know more?

  • ProLin

    #2 is not true… he just doesn’t know much about Taiwan and China… NBA has been big in Taiwan since the 70’s… we have Lin today simply because Papa Lin was such a huge fanboys of the Showtime Lakers. China only got into NBA due to Yao Ming, years before Lin.

    I do love the rest of the points. I forgot how much NYkers hates Cablevision. Lin is fighting for the people!

  • ProLin

    that’s more a disqus issue.. their forum sucks on phones and their iphone app is a slow pice of crap. I wish we can use real forums here but people just got use to this thread format I guess.

  • psalm234

    It takes time to get used to it but I believe it will benefit everyone in the long-term to have forum-like experience with multiple threads.

    With 1 thread, important Brooklyn Nets discussion get lost so easily with non-related NBA FA moves so people can’t follow what’s happening.

    Also, we can have Sticky Thread dedicated for fans who want to buy Nets tickets, JLinPortal Fundraising, etc.

  • psalm234

    Hi @manuginobilin:disqus 🙂
    We had a chatroom but deactivated it since it took a lot of resources and people like the Disqus threaded feature more during game time.

    But we can try it again next season if many fans want to try it again

  • psalm234

    Sorry for inconvenience :[
    For watching games, there might be other options (cable, HD stream) to consider when season starts

    I know It takes time to get used to it but I believe it will benefit everyone in the long-term to have forum-like experience with multiple threads.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    glad Papa Lin wasn’t a fanboy of Kobe or else we’d see Lin chucking up all kinds of shots

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    i’m with occpatio and kittyhead. it’s not fun browsing on the smartphones. my biggest problem though is i’m super lazy and don’t like to click out of one thread to get to the other treads

  • ProLin

    Papa Lin is big Magic Fanboy.. he raised Lin right, being a PG with bball smarts is for the real winners, lol

    Look at the view Lin will enjoy soon during practice…

    That is absolutely horrifying!
    The 2 executioners pretending to be cops need to be brought to justice quickly.

  • ProLin

    It really looked like an ISIS video, until you realize this is the USA where this is happening…

  • ProLin

    any chance of another forum format? Or is discus it? somehow people like it, but on mobile it’s a nightmare.

  • joy

    I guess the basket that placed right in front of that grand view is on purpose. ’cause if the players don’t focus, they might throw the ball out of the window. Haha~

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    funny how 90% of the replies from whites are defending the cops and preaching “all lives matters”. when i hear someone say that, i automatically know he’s a racist or a serious dummy and that’s a lot

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Some commentators, typically black one, continuously has venoms against Jeremy Lin despite their effort to disguise it. They suggested Jeremy Lin is making Steve Curry money in Brooklyn. That is a very unfair comparison. Nowadays, most starting PGs, unless they are rookies, make more money than Steve Curry. Mike Conley is making about twice as much as Steve Curry. Does it make him twice as good as Curry. I didn’t hear anyone complaining.

  • heart

    And this guy, Antonio Davis, is supposedly to be a “union guy” whom should want equal pay for ALL players NOT just a certain group of players. To SINGLE out Lin’s pay, the only AA NBA 6’3″ PG, revealed his envious heart towards Lin and let the world know that he’s a LOH! SMH! Thanks for calling him out!

  • GoJLin!

    Or may be two, one for the “JLIN & Net”, one for “Other NBA or whatever ….” 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Look at the expression on his face in the video, you would notice that he does his smearing in a planned, premeditated and systematic way. A crook, if I may call him. He is using his position in the Union to cover up his unfair comparison.

  • DrewBear2

    The main job for these commentators is to not be boring. Note that the blonde moderator had to prompt the guy (I don’t recognize any of these people) to actually make the Curry comparison. The black dude’s primary point was that this year’s free agency contracts are simply outrageous. He says it’s great and he’s happy for the players, but what he’s really saying is he wishes he had made that kind of money when he was an active player. Good grief. Imagine what guys like Kareem, Dr. J, Jordan, Magic & Bird are thinking?

  • Uh-Oh

    Well, it’s true all lives matter.

    Brooklyn starts to fall in love with JLin 🙂

    They’ll love him for his passion to make a difference through social causes, especially children
    https://twitter.com/JLinPortal/status/750782187679559680

  • ProLin

    That’s just who he is, so yeah, even though Lin is pretty conservative NY will still love him.

  • ProLin

    no wonder he bought a BBall team.

  • ProLin
  • freemind

    read somewhere that he is 6’8″

    he has some crazy skills lol

  • psalm234

    It’s definitely the action that speaks louder than words so NY would love him through his work with JLin Foundation to help under-privileged kids with local charities.

    Lin is already NBA Cares All-Star in real-life

  • psalm234

    Yoga helped JLin’s hips feel loose so he feel like dunking again soon

  • ProLin

    he can do a lot more in NYC too. There’s a large number of people in poverty, and a crap tons of Asian kids looking up to him as role model. He’s gonna be doing so much more than just BBall.

    Man, Lin looks way to girlish with his hair and earrings…I wish he’d consider getting rid of the earrings, at the very least.

    Glad to his parents don’t support this look.

    The only reason I dislike the multiple threads is: it makes me very busy clicking here and there which I shouldn’t, not until October.

  • ProLin

    wow, he speaks English well.. is he on Russian national team? Played in Euroleague? seemed to have some real skills.

  • Arsenium12 .

    If you’re not a native New Yorker, and I’m not, you might be interested in the map shown below. It shows the location of the Nets’ new training facility, their arena (Barclays Center), and the airport they use (Newark Liberty International).

    From Barclays Center it’s about 3 miles to the training center, 15 miles to the airport, and 5 miles to Madison Square Garden, where the Knicks play. What I’ve shown as “Manhattan” is actually lower Manhattan. Madison Square Garden is in mid-town Manhattan.

    what map?

  • ProLin

    I suspect it’s not “girlish”. I kind of have a profile of what his family is and I think it’s because it looked too Japanese.

  • Whitman Lam

    I’ve been concerned with Lin’s chronic back injury that he’s had since his 2nd year with Rockets. He’s gone through long slumps of bad shooting and missing layups at the rim. But he has mentioned that there’s a good chiropractor/acupuncture doctor in New York, that he sees whenever he’s playing in the area.
    Maybe Jeremy can see them more often and it would help him play more consistently.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Good read on Lin.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2650527-brooklyn-nets-offering-jeremy-lin-a-perfect-moment-of-truth

    “To make space for Lin, the Nets waived last year’s starting point guard, Jarrett Jack. Brooklyn also previously traded starting power forward Thaddeus Young to the Indiana Pacers for two draft picks, selecting Michigan Wolverines shooting guard Caris LeVert at No. 20 and Coney Island’s own Isaiah Whitehead, a Seton Hall point guard, at No. 42.

    Power forward Trevor Booker and center Justin Hamilton have been signed (the latter returns to the NBA after playing in Spain for a year). The Nets extended an offer sheet to combo guard Tyler Johnson, which the Miami Heat have until Sunday to match, and there are no moves yet to re-sign Wayne Ellington (who opted out) or Shane Larkin.

    Thus, Lin is the biggest acquisition—in name and in game—but does he have enough to work with, both on the roster and in his own skill set?”

  • psalm234

    Another excellent article by Greg from Sportige to analyze JLin’s Biggest Challenge with high risk/reward

    Jeremy Lin on the Brooklyn Nets is the Biggest Challenge of His Career
    http://sportige.com/expectations-new-nba-season-brooklyn-nets-jeremy-lin-97715/
    ..The Hornets was Lin’s choice. A calculated one. He knew he wasn’t going to be the starter on the team, but he took less money and what turned out to be a sixth man role most of the time. The goal? Bring up his value. It worked for Lin. When he got the minutes and the ball, he played well. That didn’t go unnoticed, and he signed with the Nets to play for a coach he knows, and for $12 million a season over three years. He probably could have gotten more money, but the whole package is probably better for him in Brooklyn, considering how other vacant spots played out in the first 48 hours of free agency.

    What’s special about this test, this challenge? The Nets still have room to make changes, and more cap space than anyone else. Tyler Johnson might arrive if the Heat don’t match his offer, and they will still be about $10 million under the cap, with some interesting names still available, although none of them very lucrative in the long term. But along with Brook Lopez, this is Lin’s team, and it’s not going to change any time soon. And that’s something he’s never had before.

    There’s the risk of failure, because the reward is bigger. Lin is going to be 28 in a month. This is the prime, although his wear & tear is relatively small, with just six NBA seasons behind him, and only 386 games (64.3 per season). If there was ever a time to establish himself as a starting point guard in the NBA, and not just on one team, it’s now. Careers change. Lin might not be in Brooklyn for life (probably not). He can grow with this team and lead them to great things. And whether or not there’s team success at the end of the line, Lin has the opportunity to show a league that has often lacked faith in him, that’s often not valued him correctly, that he’s a #1 point guard type of player, and more than that. As I wrote two or three posts ago, don’t be surprised that if things go well for Lin and Brooklyn early on this season, he’ll make the All-Star game. He gets a lot of votes even when he’s on the bench and not at his best. Imagine how big of a story it’s going to be, imagine the hype, if Lin and the Nets click right off the bat.

    As far as team success, we have to be skeptical. The Nets, just by reviewing their current roster, aren’t good enough to make the playoffs, probably. But the challenge this season, for Lin personally and for the Nets in general, is establishing something to work with next season, and the one after that. Lin plays the biggest role in this project, which is something he’s been waiting on for his entire NBA career.

    “We are excited to welcome Jeremy to Brooklyn,” said Nets’ General Manager Sean Marks. “He is a high character and competitive individual who will fit our culture moving forward, as well as the style of play that Kenny will be implementing. Jeremy is a proven veteran point guard with strong leadership qualities, who is an obvious fit in this system and city.”
