Jeremy Lin shared True Success is Love at Beyond Dreams Charity Event

“Success does not lie in what you accomplish, True Success is LOVE”, Jeremy Lin
Understanding God’s love and sharing that love with others.

That was the main message that Jeremy Lin shared on 8/8/2015 at the “Beyond Dreams” charity event to inspire China youths.

On August 8, 2015, POP’s Foundation hosted the charity event “Beyond Dreams”, together with UBG Foundation (in HK) and the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (in China). Guest speakers and performers such as Jeremy Lin, and other famous artists from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Korea shared the stage to perform and share their successful life stories and challenges.

This was the first time ever where Overseas and Mainland Chinese join hands together to host a charity event to promote positive values through cultural exchange, arts and entertainment to inspire our youths.

In his 18 min speech, Jeremy shared his message that true success does not really lie in accomplishments but it is really about LOVE [mark 17:54], particularly understanding God’s love and sharing love with others. In practice, he encouraged others to help orphans/widows, marginalized people in society. Also befriend bullied students at school or lonely colleague at work.

Several notable keypoints in his speech that Humans is Wired to Love:
[9:27] Study by Stanford professor: psychologically abused child, only 1 nurse who cares for him.
Harvard Nurse Healthy study: not having close friends are as detrimental as smoking

[10:51] Mom sided with ex-GF in college during a phone conversation
“Girls are like flowers. They’re delicate & need to be watered everyday”
Jeremy concluded all human are like flowers. Men & women need to be watered with love everyday

18:02 “Success does not lie in what you accomplish, True Success is LOVE”
Understanding God’s love & loving others

    i dont know if this is a speciality thread that will slip back and a more general post come up later but anyway not a lot going on anywhere so will put this here for now:

    Charlotte Hornets beat writer, Rick Bonnell, of the Charlotte Observer has tweeted that in a first draft of the league schedule for games next season that the Charlotte Hornets would open up against the Miami Heat in Miami, followed by a home-and-home against the Atlanta Hawks.

    Bonnell also stated that this could be subject to change when the final schedule is released tonight.

    If the Hornets do in fact open up against the Miami Heat, then it would be a great way to start off the year for Charlotte. It would be a test to see how good Charlotte is at the beginning of the season against a veteran team like the Heat which many expect to make the playoffs in the East this year.

    thanks. seeing lots of commentary but no link to actual sked.

    looking at it how many games you guess team can win? (obviously just for fun at this point). but knowing who they are playing gives you more of an educated guess.

  • wandertheglobe

    Hornets get no love, only one ESPN game, last game of the season against the Magic. The other 5 so-call national TV games are on NBA TV.

  • wandertheglobe
  • JW

    Depending on how they are doing by the end of the season, April schedule might not be too bad if they are trying to move up in the ranking. Got Cleveland and Washington, maybe Toronto as tough teams. Other ones are wildcards like Hornets.

    Fri, Apr 1 vs Philadelphia 7:00 PM
    Sun, Apr 3@ Cleveland 3:30 PM
    Tue, Apr 5@ Toronto 7:30 PM
    Wed, Apr 6@ NY Knicks 7:30 PM
    Fri, Apr 8 vs Brooklyn 7:00 PM
    Sun, Apr 10@ Washington 1:00 PM
    Mon, Apr 11@ Boston 7:30 PM
    Wed, Apr 13 vs Orlando 8:00 PM

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah thats a good run other than clev and maybe as you say wash. toronto never seems to really make it thru to the end of the season.

  • 1mtoldman

    charlotte fans like to point out that mj always pushes for weekend games which lead to more back to backs than most because charlotte market only draws big crowds for weekend games. one thing to check out on sked this time.

  • CJSHYY

    It’s OK. ESPN is not really that friendly to Lin anyway. When they play well, they will come to ask for it.

  • I am The Jason

    The Hornets are starting the season with playoff contenders. Miami, Atlanta, San Antonio and Dallas(maybe). Wow. The dates I have circled is Nov 11 vs Knicks, Jan 31 vs Lakers and Mar 12 vs Houston.

  • 1mtoldman

    dec 28th game with lakers too right? which is where?

  • I am The Jason

    Small Market team with little star power. I expected this.

  • JW

    wonder why they throw that last game in there for. They probably have the option to change it if there are not a lot of interests.

  • I am The Jason

    That game is in Charlotte

  • 1mtoldman

    thanks to posters below who put up (not one but 2) links to actual schedule. now that even i have managed to find it, everyone should have…by now…looking at who hornets are actually playing and which are home games.

    any thoughts with that added info looking game to game how many games would see (as things stand now) as winnable and give a guess rather than a prediction at # of games hornets might win this year.

  • JW

    i guess nba still kobe biased. the guy still playing on xmas day.

    https://twitter.com/ESPNNBA/status/631589482236669952

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Plus I think Lakers is still the biggest market team right now so they are still on X’mas game. NYK is out maybe due to they are #30 last season. LOL!

  • JW

    Just looking at LAL’s TV sched. They got bunch of them too. Completely undeserved.

  • CJSHYY

    Well, money talk. If Lakers is still #1 making money team then NBA will give them any favor they asked for it. Like it or not… it’s all business$$$

  • Alain Gervais

    well won’t be watching any them….thank goodness

  • CJSHYY

    Me too. I am not interested in any of them for my X’mas day. LOL~!

  • Alain Gervais

    maybe rox v spurs. altough rox have always won but that was when lin was there

  • CJSHYY

    I like Spurs but… right now I am more care about Eastern Conference teams vs Hornets…LOL!

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t think Rox did good in FA. But Spurs did good. So Spurs probably will win this season.

  • Alain Gervais

    the first 5 games are a little brutal

  • Alain Gervais

    yea lol i forgot they got aldridge

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! But I believe Lin will do his best to win this season. Heat didn’t really improve a lot in FA so you never know… right now no one thinks Hornets is good…. will see.

  • I am The Jason

    Pffft. Who cares about Dec 25th. Dec 26th is the game to watch. Memphis vs Charlotte.

  • CJSHYY

    Also the guy from Pacers? West?

  • Alain Gervais

    maimi is a toss up. have to get 1 in atlanta. three games after that dallas is a must win.

  • Alain Gervais

    david west

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Lakers vs Clippers? smh! Lakers fans will not want to watch the game… sure will be bad. LOL!

  • CJSHYY

    Rox also lose J Smith. That’s bad move to me. w/o him they couldn’t beat Clippers.

  • Whitman Lam

    ESPN is known to switch broadcasts if a team is doing poorly and another team is surprisingly good. Like when they dropped the Lakers and Knicks games last season.

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! So no need to worry about it. If Lin plays well they will come to him.

  • jakey

    Trying to buy tickets to the Lakers vs Hornets on Jan 31 but its so expensive haha

  • zxcvb

    It’s good to be in the East! So many weak opponents for Lin to clean up on, even from the bench.

    After the break, he had All-Star caliber games against Boston, Philly and Charlotte as a 6th man. And we’ll get to see that more often now that he’s playing East teams 3-4 times a year instead of just twice.

  • zxcvb

    Not scared of ATL or SAS. Even if they win (Spurs probably will), they won’t have the quickness to stop Lin. Miami has Bosh and Whiteside, so they could definitely give Lin a bad game. Dallas ain’t sniffing the playoffs.

    a poster on a hornets fan site said espn analysis of hornet sked showed it one of the easiest sked in the league.

    and not nearly the back to backs team has had before (attributed right or wrong by hornets fans as organizations choice to get weekend games to get more fans).

  • 1mtoldman

    Here’s the breakdown of combined ABC/ESPN/TNT games:

    Cleveland and Golden State — 25 each

    Clippers and OKC — 24 each

    Chicago — 23

    San Antonio —- 21

    Lakers and Houston — 19 each

    New Orleans — 13

    Heat —- 11

    Memphis — 10

    Atlanta — 8

    Boston, Dallas, Indiana and New York — 7 each

    Minnesota, Phoenix, Portland, Washington — 5 each

    Milwaukee and Sacramento — 4 each

    Utah — 3

    Toronto — 2

    Orlando, Brooklyn and Charlotte — 1 each

    Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit – 0 each

    why care for the schedulw when all I have to do is check out this site and the other site on a daily basis where it will note the next up coming game =D

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    LANDSLIDE loss for sure.

  • CJSHYY

    I can’t believe there are 0 for teams?! smh!

  • JLin is always doing his part for charity. Showing everyone what a great person we already know he is. I have so much respect for the man, we do not hear enough stories of influential people trying to better people’s life’s and I’m glad JLin is an advocate for this. All we hear is talent-less celebrities, I won’t mention any names. Oh yeah, I’m also liking the new look JLin is rocking!

    For those who have read my latest article on JLin, please ignore this. I have wrote an article on my most memorable Jeremy Lin game. Feel free to check it out https://jhaposts.wordpress.com/2015/08/12/most-memorable-jeremy-lin-game/ . Just want to add thanks for everyone’s support for my previous articles. It means a lot.

    I think Lin’s Lakers last season would have been a 7th seed in the East.

  • Brent Yen

    That is possible

  • JoeTeam

    that means they are wrong, Hornets are higher than 7 seed this year.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Most frustrating two weeks for me in term of mobile and laptop. Both of them gave me so much of trouble in the past couple months but finally died on me one after the other. Had to get new mobile on Tuesday and then new laptop this morning. Hopefully it’s back to normal after this mishap.

    Glad that I didn’t miss much in term of JLin news:-) Can’t wait to hear what JLin is going to share this coming Saturday @Jubilee Conference. Believe he will share the similar theme: Redefining Success if I have to make a guess:-)

    Counting:
    51 days to Preseason Game 1 vs Miami Heats (4 October)
    75 days to 2015-2016 Game 1 vs Miami Heats (28 October)

  • Brent Yen

    Electronics are made to perform that way (dies quickly for profits)

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know but do they have to come together???!!! That’s the most frustrating part:-( They died before I had the chance to update…. Lost some info as a result.

    One thing I learn: Hard to live without laptop. I can live without mobile:-)

  • Brent Yen

    that is too bad, backing up things is really important…

  • Steppen03

    It’s really Not Fair game for some teams… Why? anyone knows the reason?

  • Steppen03

    Well, my bros here, thanks for all the info. Let the Hornets have a good Winning season and close out the season with a BANG!
    Cavs -they’re better than us.
    Boston -back to back -Not so easy…
    But let us take the rest with the W.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    I know. I was very upset with myself for the past few days. I wasn’t thinking when I started something “innocent.” Totally unexpected with the total breakdown of my laptop as a result. Normally I would have done the backup after major tasks that were accomplished or when I knew I would have done this act. Oh well, water under the bridge, not much I could do but re-update info now:-(

  • Steppen03

    We are Ready for the Buzz!
    Top Four Teams in EC, I want to see: The Cavs, Hawks, Heat, Hornets.

    Why is the Christmas Day game such a big deal? Does it get extremely high ratings?

    Do people have nothing else to do on Christmas Day except watch NBA? I would have thought spending time with family or friends, or at least playing with your new toys. =)

  • real-dsb

    Really, what’s the market price?

    Better off waiting until last minute to buy tickets. By then, the Lakers will be in tank mode and everyone will be trying to offload their tickets for cheap!

  • real-dsb

    yeah seriously. I was really hoping Lin would go back to Eastern Conf!

  • real-dsb

    I thought he was reducing carbs?

  • real-dsb

    I assume this can change during the season, right? Like if a team turns out to be horrible, they would drop some games, and if a team turns out to be a huge draw, then they would increase games?

  • real-dsb

    I guess we should be glad Hornets have 1!

  • real-dsb

    It’s all about $$$. They’re going to put teams that draw $$$ on national TV. So it’s either top teams (CLE, GSW) or large markets (LA, NY)

  • real-dsb

    wow, amazing graph

  • real-dsb

    sounds about right to me

    That’s why I still use desktop because it’s durable. It doesn’t have heat problem and usually you could use for at least five to ten years before your software really outdated.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    I have grouped the East Conference teams into 3 categories: contenders, playoff teams to beat, and outsiders.

    Contenders:
    Cleveland Cavaliers
    Chicago Bulls
    Miami Heat

    Playoff Teams to beat:
    Atlanta Hawks
    Toronto Raptors
    Charlotte Hornets
    Washington Wizards
    Milwaukee Bucks

    Outsiders:
    Boston Celtics
    Brooklyn Nets
    Indiana Pacers

    Without a doubt, the contenders are contending for conference championship.
    Playoff Teams to beat are so solid that they deserve to be in the playoff.
    Outsiders are teams that they need to play above their norms to make to the playoff.
    Outsiders are really mediocre teams.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    How do u do the automatic back up service?? Please share wisdom. Thanks!

  • Brent Yen

    Those are paid services…..e.g. CrashPlan…you can google it….many similar things out there I think.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Thanks!

  • 1mtoldman

    actually you grouped them into 4 groups w/ 76ers as “the lottery team”. tho i agree that probably only the 76’ers will actually be from the beginning to end intentionally tanking i actually think looking at the skeds off the top that they will win more games than the nicks.

    so if you have the hornets as a playoff team how many games do you think it will take in the east to be a playoff team, how many wins?

  • 1mtoldman

    aww come on you know lin doesn’t hold grudges: where is the love? (beyond…what was it..love beyond success)?

  • 1mtoldman

    i knew once it got to 55 days someone should be counting down; btw, has the hornets actual full preseason sked been released? if so got a link or just post it.

    i havent seen it.

  • 1mtoldman

    yeah my son had an old old big mac for years; it finally died tho this summer. but it got him thru college and well beyond.

    i have a big notebook that these days would qualify as a desktop that i never take off the desk and never connect to the internet that i use for writing and accounts.

    you modern folk; nothing compared to carlyle.

  • 1mtoldman

    reminds of some old clothing ads….or tintin

  • 1mtoldman

    plus or minus with the edge to minus. 500 team at this point. much easier to make some kind of educated guess tho with a schedule to see actually who playing (and which are home games).

  • 1mtoldman

    u been busy (bc) putting all that up.

  • 1mtoldman

    they do but not often like last year they pulled knicks and lakers at least once i think because they were so bad.

  • 1mtoldman

    id give 6ers a negative if possible for their proud progressive tanking which has polluted the entire nba.

  • 1mtoldman

    notice the hashtag (i think thats a hastag, i actually have no idea what a hastag is).

  • 1mtoldman

    yep the most tickets on stub hub and like are always not for teams no one would want to see but for teams at the beginning of the year you would think if they were good someone would want to see but then if they’re not lots of tickets available.

    btw wont have to wait till “last minute” for lakers to be in tank mode. i actually think looking at their sked and expecting kobe to be out wiht injury again soon (as two previous seasons, why would it be any different now, has he suddenly reverse aged?)

    that they will win fewer games than last year and have a real good shot at keeping their top 3 not 5 this time protected pick. (which is what i think they will be doing anyway).

  • 1mtoldman

    see d. jordan comments on the significance of xmas day game.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Ok, should be renamed “chip on shoulder” matches

  • KL

    I would probably swap the Wizards and Hawks with the Heat and Bulls. I think the Heat and Bulls are in decline. Dragic is overrated. Bosh and Wade are too old and injured. Bulls have a new coach and they are still beholden to oft-injured Rose.

    Hawks will want to prove that they are not one-season wonders. Wizards have John Wall who is a reflection of what Jeremy could have achieved if he only had consistent support from his organization and team.

    Otherwise I agree with your list.

  • KL

    Hey everyone. I live in Asia and sometimes travel to the United States to visit relatives, though usually in the summer. This December I am planning a trip to the United States and plan to catch a Jeremy Lin game! Can anyone suggest a suitable website that I can book tickets?

    I have tried booking through the nba.com website but I am not sure if that is the best way to book. Advice please?

  • adele

    Try ticketmaster.com or go to the specific team website where the game is.

  • Brent Yen

    Game report please!

  • Brent Yen

    Do you have to book the ticket now? probably should wait until the time is close

  • CJSHYY

    I don’t think Heat is a contender team bc they didn’t even make it to playoff last season & their FA didn’t have any big different.

  • David Kim
  • I am The Jason

    The Heat did not make the playoffs because of multiple injuries. Atlanta vs Miami would have been a lot better than the Atlanta vs Brooklyn we got.

  • KL

    Thanks. Tickets for December are not available yet. But at least I know where to look.

  • KL

    Thanks.

  • KL

    Thanks, will definitely do a game report. It seems that some people have suggested that the tickets would be cheaper later on, closer to the game date. But that seems counter intuitive to me.

    Cuz if when Lin goes Linsane, then the price will sky rocket like NY.

    What’s your favorite NBA player ritual?

  • real-dsb

    My advice is to book through the official Ticketmaster NBA website, but look for official Resale Tickets. Those are usually cheaper than the full price (but not always, so make sure to check against the full price). You’ll probably get better deals closer to the game since people want to get rid of their tickets.

    http://www.ticketmaster.com/nba

    There are plenty of other third party ticket exchanges (like StubHub, eBay, etc), but since you are traveling out of country, you don’t want to risk fraud. Stubhub does have a guarantee policy that covers fraud, but that’s after the fact. You will have already fought traffic to get to the game, paid for parking, lined up to get in the stadium, only to find out that your tickets have already been redeemed by someone else.

    I find that Ticketmaster Resale tickets are not much more expensive than Stubhub. But the big difference is that Ticketmaster, being the actual ticket issuer, will cancel the seller’s tickets and reissue a new ticket to the buyer. Third party sites cannot know if a seller from selling multiple copies of their PDF e-tickets.

    If you just want dead simple solution, just use a cloud drive like Google Drive. You just select a folder on your hard drive, e.g. My Documents. Then everything under that drive (including all subfolders) will get synced to the cloud continuously. You get 15GB free, but it’s very cheap to increase ($2/month for 100 GB)

  • real-dsb

    Of course Nike was not going to match that.

  • Acbc

    Lol, being a good competitor is to follow the Warriors code. Love is expressed by making one another better.

    We often mistake kindness of the real world by taking it easy on weaker opponents. As is the case with tanking teams like Phili. Opposing teams often play soft on them partly to save energy and partly to make it seem like a palatable product for fans. As a warrior and a player, when opponents do that, they are totally disrespecting you. It’s not love, it’s disrespect.

    To respect or love another warrior athlete, you must bring your best in order to push them and yourself to become better. Beating up badly some other team, even a tanking team will only show them what they need to do to become better and not delude them into complacency.

    My random guess is that Lin got $3-5M/yr from Adidas.

  • Brent Yen

    It usually goes up to a peak then fall to the bottom when the time is too close…for a regular non significant game I mean…

  • Infini

    Adidas makes good casual shoes and decent jogging shoes, but I feel their basketball shoes suck.

    Hope Jeremy can sign with Nike sooner or later.

  • Briiick
  • Guest

    What season is he in? Fall? Lol.

  • real-dsb

    It’s not an exact science, but here’s the general scenario: Seller has tickets to a future game (often because they have a season ticket package). If the game is still months out, they may as well keep the price high and see if they get any takers for the high price.

    Let’s say they didn’t sell the ticket yet, and now the game is only a few days away. Assuming the seller cannot attend the game, they are highly motivated to get rid of the tickets or else they will eat the entire cost if they don’t sell it.

    Now, there is an opposite scenario that could happen too. If the game is sold out and in very high demand, then market supply/demand could jack up the ticket prices well beyond face value.

  • Rick Johnson

    JLin might have just visited with him since he was in town. He’s dressed to casually to be at that conference too. At least compared to others in the picture.

    John Wall is not in Lin’s class as a player.

    After all these years, Wall remains a brick handed shooter who lack fundamentals and isn’t a great team player.

  • KHuang

    One of the many things that enrage me about this article is that it places higher value on Nathan Gottlieb’s account of events than on Lin’s himself.

    To us Lin fans, nothing Gottlieb said was new because we’ve witnessed Lin saying these things many times himself.

    Then the tired false notions of Lin playing poor defense and can’t go left and commits too many turnovers are raised, even though all those were video and stats debunked FOUR YEARS AGO.

    WEAK article.

    Dies anyone know if Lin keeps in touch with the charity he started in Houston.

  • real-dsb

    which one was that?

  • real-dsb

    it’s ok, no big deal. Just letting you know, in case you wanted to look at previous conversation about it.

  • grover chang

    Jeremy lin foundation. Was suppose to work with other organizations in Houston (at the time)

  • real-dsb

    Ah, okay. I expect JL Foundation to continue wherever he is. Last year, JLF served in LA area, East Palo Alto, Boston, and globally via online. I doubt he will serve in Houston since he will not be there physically, but I’m positive he will work with local Charlotte non-profits to serve the community.

  • Charlie S

    The optimist in me says JLin will finally be utilized correctly and they will finish 10 games above .500. The pessimist in me says another frustrating season to watch, just below .500. So I guess it evens out to that 44-38 record lol

  • 1mtoldman

    bleacher report in predictions w/l and standings for all teams has hornets 11th in east with 39 wins which is actually 5 wins more than atthehive hornets fan site has them at.

    and 44 wins needed to make the playoffs; 46 in west…would think their would be more of a difference there, certainly was last year but maybe the preception is that east teams have improved versus west in off season.

    interestingly they have the knicks 10th above the hornets; just looking quickly at some teams game to game sked (some not all but did do knicks) i thought at this time looking at who’s available now and who they are playing knicks could arguably have the worst record in either league this year. in any event i certainly wouldn’t expect them capable of winning 40 games (which is what this report has them doing).

    Well Adidas is really stupid to throw money away like that. I don’t know anyone who even wants a beard shoe. First hint is you have to fudge the numbers and use the backdoor every year just to get JH into the ASG.

  • blubell
  • zxcvb

    It’s not very good, but it’s important for a non-Asian fan/writer to provide some ardent support for Lin. Most people won’t listen to reason if it comes from an Asian(-American) fan.

    “Lin was playing alongside the two most ball-dominant SGs in the game, Harden and Kobe”
    “NO YOU’RE JUST A CRAZY ASIAN LIN FAN [insert racist insult]”

  • zxcvb

    Yet just because this NONAsian speaks these things, it’s suddenly more valuable than the mountains of quotes uttered by the Asian guy?

    That’s exactly what it is. Sad, but true. And unfortunately, it’s necessary. Black/LGBT/women/Asian… you can’t get fair treatment if only the minorityin question supports you.

  • sport

    I’d say for apparel Adidas but for shoes definitely Nike and you just can’t beat the amazing designs for their Jordan line!

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Anyone here can also make prediction so why should we care someone had his?

  • “44 wins needed to make the playoffs; 46 in west…would think their would be more of a difference there”

    well, the west teams do have to play each other more, which might explain the closeness.

  • KHuang

    Bleacher Report HATES Lin.

    They automatically assume that adding him to any team will destroy that team.

  • KHuang

    I am Asian American and so everything I write is automatically called “trolling” by the mainstream media unless I am on this site only.

  • takemeback2reaganyears

    Does anyone here know how many national televisised games did the Hornets have last season?

    Thanks.

  • KHuang

    Total truth right here.

    I give total kudos to the NONASIAN fans (Nathan Gottliev included) of Lin who are courageous enough to stand up for Lin and Lin’s Asian fans. Lin’s nonAsian fans invite race hate and flaming and ostracization on themselves by standing with us Asians, yet they’re strong enough to do it anyway!

    The irony is that if there’s only one Asian Lin fan who truly doesn’t give a hoot about Lin being Asian, it’s me who didn’t even like Asian Yao Ming. Entire threads in the other unmoderated site have been filled with race hate troll flamewars accusing me of liking only Asian players and trashing all other nonAsian players.

  • Rocky

    I’m not happy about this statement, “Beverley was a lot better defender than Lin (at the time)” , either. However, I feel that Nathan sort of attempted to balance his arguments to be not totally against the prevailing perception. So, he balanced a bit negative on “worse defense(at the time)” with all positives to make his position more neutral/objective and hence trustful (or more appealing) to the general public. It is good to have an outspoken professional sports writer to clarify a lot of misconceptions on Lin, even though there is one flaw. It is much more convincing or powerful than the rest of us. The NNTT’s article on “Hornets Guards — Passing” is on the right direction. Just provide the stats, analysis, no judgement or criticism. Very objective. And, hence trustful.

  • KHuang

    Balancing the facts to be more palatable to the mainstream is called “WRITING WRONG STUFF”.

    Why should any journalist in the 21st century be afraid of simply writing the hard truth – that Lin beat Bev defensively in stats and video highlights?

    An article praising Lin is so dang counterculture, a little TRUTH TELLING is not going to make the racists any more angry than they already are!

  • Steppen03

    KHuang: You’ve made me looked at it in a different perspective. I’m Totally with you!
    But I can’t criticize what Nathan Gottlieb got here. It may be, in part, for his own good or benefit and was not entirely for Lin’s sake but nevertheless it’s another positive article about our boy, Lin. Sometimes, the truth has to be told over and over again in order to open deaf ears. And Lin has gained few more fans somewhere. In all honesty, I truly believed that he is a true Lin fan. And one word from him is like a thousand words coming from me. But, I’m afraid it won’t be that easy. I KNOW it’s not going to be that easy. JL #7 have to get his 20+ pts & 7ast on 45%FG, 42%-3P, 85%FT in order to command his due respect in this league. JL #7 have to be much more productive than his peers in order to open eyes. I KNOW this coming season will be JL #7 breakout year. He IS a Freeman. He IS like a bird – can fly freely once more.

  • Arsenium12 .

    They had 5 games on NBA TV and 2 on ESPN in 2014-15. None on any other network. But, that was as of August, 2014. The ESPN games were in April, 2015, and the Hornets might have been bumped from those.

    Great comments here…and I’ve always agreed about the Asian racism. It’s just that I see that argument as not big enough. I tend to indict the entire human species 🙂 Racism is just one more corner of the pervasive human vice of territoriality – me and mine vs. anything else. I was shocked while traveling in Iran to hear them contemptuously refer to the Arabs as “blacks”. No dogs or Irish. The earth is flat and if your so-called science suggests otherwise, the ruling theocracy/tenured professionals will happily burn you at the stake. Whatever the institution, the group, the meme, people are prickly, if not actually violent, in defense of their positions, no matter how thin the evidence. Because its THEIRS. So, yes, the negative scraps Gottlieb throws the lions to hopefully seduce them into giving in to his “expert” difference of opinion…it’s distressing. But it’s an ancient strategy that sometimes gets more results than combativeness. Where the line is drawn between persuasive skill and cowardice will always be a matter of debate. The MUCH bigger issue is the one Jeremy constantly addresses…how to LOVE when faced with such cramped souls.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

  • Acbc

    Unfortunately sports is lumped into the same catoragory of non essential junk pastime. It ranks even lower that Hollywood junk films or pop music because they are given a pass for being a semblance of art.

    Sports journalism therefore is even worst than modern junk news. It’s viewed not as facts or statistical truth, it’s all about sizzle and hits. The more outrageous the comments, the more hits they get. Sports journalism is all about who they want to be great and sell it to the sports junkies to create buzz, nothing more.

    WHAT IS TRUTH IN SPORTS JOURNALISM? ITS ALL ABOUT FEEDING THE MASSES THE TRUTH THEY ALREADY WANT TO BELIEVE.

    I’m criticizing the article’s author who blatantly acts as if Lin’s own words don’t count.

  • Ttt

    Not sure! It’s normally teams that play on Tuesday night and fans pick who they want to see! One way to get Charlotte on National TV.

  • KHuang

    Good way for Lin to SOFTEN UP Harden for future matchups

  • Acbc

    The reverse is also considered to be MORE truth when an Asian writer toes the Uncle Tom line and follow the herd by trashing Lin.

    We all want the world to look objectively at the facts but that’s not how the real world operates. Either we play the game of propaganda to squelch the lies or we give into its loaded deck.

    Nathan is brave enough to stand his ground to ignore the huge pressures by the collective weight of the sports writers that hold the seats of power. I’m sure he’s been already ostracized by his outlier comments. Let’s not split hairs about a few errors in his comments.

  • Acbc

    Should have paid him the same as Melo since Harden is on track to become the next Super-dud.

    Another bleacherreport by Timothy Rapp on Aug
    12, 2015 told us that Hornets is going to be a playoff team with probably a record of 44-38 and was seeded number 7 in the playoff.

    Byron Scott has discredited Jeremy Lin for being inconsistent but advanced Statistics tells us otherwise

    2014-2015 Player Consistency Statistics
    http://nyloncalculus.com/stats/2014-2015-player-consistency-statistics/

    Variance: By how much a player is likely to perform above or below his average on any given game. Represented by a value in which about 68% of games will be within a range of the Average +/- Variance. Higher variance = lower consistency.
    Highly dependent on volume of scoring. About 75% of players fall between a variance of 1.4 and 2.1, so anyone outside of that range can be considered to exceptionally consistent or exceptionally inconsistent. The average is 1.75.

    Consistency: How likely a player is to perform outside of the typical “range” set by his variance. Higher consistency score means the player is more likely to play within the range set by his variance. Lower means their performance is
    more erratic. Far less dependent on volume, but the extreme highs and lows are less dramatic. About 75% of players fall between a consistency of 1.1 and 3.6, so anyone outside of that range can be considered exceptionally consistent or exceptionally inconsistent. The average is 2.3.

    If you select only LAL (Lakers) players

    The most consistent player is Robert Sacre with Consistency=3.21 Variance=0.77
    Next is Ronnie Price with Consistency=2.98 Variance 1.21
    Next is Jeremy Lin with Consistency=2.86 Variance=1.19
    (Jeremy has a lower Variance but a little higher Consistency; result of Jeremy Lin is very close to Ronnie Price)
    Next is Wesley Johnson with Consistency=2.80 Variance=1.19
    Next is Jordon Hill with Consistency=2.62 Variance=1.14
    Next is Kobe Bryant with Consistency=2.62 Variance=1.80
    Next is Tarik Black with Consistency=2.06 Variance=0.90
    Next is Nick Young with Consistency=1.43 Variance=1.87
    Next is Ed Davis with Consistency=1.79 Variance=1.19
    Next is Carlos Boozer with Consistency=1.70 Variance=1.07
    Next is Jordon Clarkson with Consistency=1.21 Variance=0.89
    Next is Ryan Kelly with Consistency=0.33 Variance 1.03
    Next is Wayne Ellington with Consistency=0.00 Variance=1.01 (perhaps not eligible for
    this statistics for playing less than 68 games)

    Let’s compare Jeremy Lin with Kobe Bryant and Jordon Clarkson in details

    Jeremy Lin Variance=1.19; Consistency=2.86 (above average consistent)
    FG%=0.41
    FG% Consistency= 3.37
    PPG=10.49
    PtConsistency=2.01
    3PG=0.95
    3pConsistency=3.13
    3pt%=0.36
    3%Consistency=2.65
    APG=4.49
    AstConsistency=2.28
    RPG=2.63
    RebConsistency=3.60
    MinConsistency=1.28

    Kobe Bryant Variance=1.80 Consistency=2.62 (Average Consistent)
    FG%=0.37
    FG% Consistency= 2.67
    PPG=22.34
    PtConsistency=2.15
    3PG=1.54
    3pConsistency=2.96
    3pt%=0.26
    3%Consistency=3.80
    APG=5.63
    AstConsistency=2.33
    RPG=5.69
    RebConsistency=2.19
    MinConsistency=2.27

    Jordon Clarkson Variance=0.89; Consistency=1.21 (below average consistent)
    FG%=0.43
    FG% Consistency= 2.52
    PPG=4.86
    PtConsistency=3.32
    3PG=0.24
    3pConsistency= -7.46
    3pt%=0.35
    3%Consistency=1.50
    APG=0.76
    AstConsistency=1.86
    RPG=1.52
    RebConsistency=2.66
    MinConsistency=1.57

    Jeremy Lin has the lowest MinConsistency among them all with Kobe the highest MinConsistency.

    https://twitter.com/EdKupfer/status/623640011724976128

  • So Charlotte Hornets is ranked #2 for getting the least rested than their opponents.

    I like this one since it means starters would need more rest then JLin should get more PT

  • CHA is ranked #4 in getting the least back-to-back games so this is good

    But someone hates MIL, LAC, HOU for getting the most B2B games 😀

  • gotta love the 6th grade violin practice story 😀

  • for charlotte it seems to get tougher towards the end of the season

  • Whitman Lam

    Some back-to-back games are easier due to the short distance traveled between cities: Lakers/Clippers/Suns, Knicks/Nets/76ers, Warriors/Kings/Blazers, Milwaukee/Chicago, Utah/Denver, etc. However the Hornets have only a few of these and many games like @Minnesota then Knicks @Charlotte the next night. These are hard back to backs due to the distance traveled and sleep lost due to time zone changes.

    That’s only if Lin plays enough minutes (30ish).

    The team simply isn’t good enough to win without Lin on the floor.

  • KHuang

    Probably not.

    James Harden probably doesn’t even KNOW about Lin’s tweet!

  • KHuang

    Urk, amazing stats and analysis.

    I got violently flamed and cursed at and called names by trolls for calling Lin “consistent” last season.

    As usual, the stats badly debunk the hate trolls. I KNEW the stats were showing Lin as being consistent, yet the trolls kept writing I was utterly clueless in all of my posts.

    Kwok Wai Lai is an amazing basketball mind and would be somebody I’d recommend to an NBA franchise as a stats analyst. This is not the first time Kwok Wai Lai has posted this amazing kind of analysis.

  • KHuang

    Thank God Lin had the good sense to abandon the violin for basketball.

    If I had a son as gifted at basketball as Lin was, I’d just about forbid him from wasting his time playing the violin!

    Besides, I’ve always had a saying about violin playing. The bigger the body, the smaller the tone. I’ve NEVER seen an exception to that self made rule.

  • FrankW

    So which is it? Vertical (y-axis) height or age? Assume graph is correct you should want more weighted on the first quadrant, or upper left section (6’9”, 25) – no? No idea why all graphs is elliptic and symmetric.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Thanks but the credit should go to Nylon Calculus. The website for advanced statistics.
    And they have proved that the only inconsistency for Jeremy Lin last season is the minutes that he received.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    We have seen Jeremy blew by Beverley so many times that Beverley’s defense is just overrated.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    About 50% of the games played. I think the Eastern Conference seems to improve in the off season and it should be reflected on the record. Last season the last team that made it to the playoff was Brooklyn Nets with a winning % of 46.3%. 50% of games played was about 41 games won; That was what Milwaukee Bucks did last season.

  • Arsenium12 .

    In developing the 2015-16 schedule, the NBA tried to drastically reduce the number of games for which a team had at least three days of rest. These extra days were then distributed in such a way that teams would have fewer back-to-back games, thereby decreasing the number of “four games in five nights” scenarios. See the chart below (from : Nylon Calculus web site).

    From a strictly skills standpoint, Lin would still not be permitted to play at Stanford because their scouts would insist that Lin is too slow and unathletic and too ASIAN to play D-1 basketball even after the NBA!

    mitch kupchak says russell/clarkson will be lakers backcourt for next decade. (at least that is his desire).

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The more you forbide, the more likely he would become a violinist. Well that’s what they would do.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    It’s not even debatable. Those are facts.

  • CJSHYY

    What GM said always can’t be trust. I remembered Mitch also said They want Lin to be a Lakers for his career?! Morey also said in SAS show that “We’re happy w what we had so far…” Next day he traded 3 players to King… smh!

  • CJSHYY

    PR PR… Kobe needs the good guy image. BS will do the dirty job for him.

    Do you know what kind of survey they are doing?

    The minute I see the phone number where I have to call to take the survey, my heart instantly say NO. But the minute I see $120 gift card, my heart immediately say YES!

    They forget that on defense, Lin leads Point guards for blocks, and he’s one of the best guards defending the pick and roll.

    I like this tall faux hawk hair.

  • blubell

    I got home about an hour ago. I will share more pics. Need to figure out how to share vids. I’ll try to upload to my youtube account.

  • Yascar

    When it’s fixed and done up like that, it works and looks really good. But if you check out the pics when he’s casual and hasn’t done his hair, it looks horrible. One word, Jeremy: GEL!

  • blubell

    Yup. Definitely lots of gel on that hair 😛

  • he’ll be listed at 6’5″ soon LOL

  • true, Jeremy GelLIN !
    Or GelLINsanity!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Sculpting gel or rather glue! He got his own MOJO style now. Man, he looks taller and bigger now! Watch out flabby Lebron, lol!

  • orLinaryjoe

    Are you gelling? Lin is!

  • 1mtoldman

    gimmee a head with (lots of) hair (gel).

    as ive attempted to point out previously this style of hair with the sides shaved and some sort of high top variant is called an “undercut” and is apparently the style for some time.

    popularized originally i guess by david beckham.

    in baseball by bryce harper.

    theres an asian pop star (dont remember if korean or taiwanese) has something similar. (one name artist can’t think of name tho, maybe initials?)

  • 1mtoldman

    based on links back that “little head” behind lin belongs to former lin fan site poster lily chen?

  • 1mtoldman

    going to attempt to pass “the shump” for highest hair in league.

  • blubell

    I will share few things before I figure out how to post vid…
    Jeremy is in LA for the conference and to move.
    Instead of sitting in a nice restaurant (except Sushi) for a 5 course meal, he likes his food instant, devour the food and leave.
    His grandma paid for his education at Harvard but didn’t support him playing basketball. She is now a proud grandma and Jeremy thanked her 🙂
    His family calls him overgrown child.
    After winning the ESPYS, Jessica Biel gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek to congratulate him. He didn’t know who she was so he stool there awkwardly. He later googled her.
    At one point during his rookie year, he literally packed all his stuff from the locker after morning practice and walked out. He told his agent that this is it and to tell the team to cut him. His agent convinced him to go back.

  • blubell

    Yup. That is Lily Chen. I met her at the conference. Super nice person.

  • Arsenium12 .

    Which team is going to playoff this season.
    last season three teams separated themselves from the rest with 50+ record in regular season: Hawks, Cavs, Bulls.
    Rightfully so, they are heading toward playoff next season.

    The next bunch is a tossed up:

    Teams that have significantly improved through FAs, drafts and returned of key players are:
    *Raptors (more defensively minded)
    *Bucks
    *Heats
    *Hornets (more offensively minded)
    *Pistons

    Can they beat out the Wizards, Pacers, and Nets, teams w/o significant improvement?
    Knicks has also improved significantly. Has it improved enough? Will they make the race more interesting!
    Gee, the East Conference’s race to playoff becomes much more interesting than last season.

  • JLin Fan from Australia

    Nash seems to be just saying the only thing he could to be nice. What else could he say about Jordon Clarkson who is obviously a marginal NBA player at this moment until Byron Scott gave him tons of minutes at the end of last season to demote Jeremy Lin further.
    The truth is Byron Scott didn’t want Lin back in LA despite Lin’s outstanding performance after the All-star break. So for some reason he put Lin back in the starting lineup and keep Lin away from Ed Davis as much as possible whom they figure they may retain in the next season. Jordon Clarkson got the call and had scored as many points as he can running the team offense. Lakers could only win over the weakest teams with Jordon Clarkson in the meantime.

  • blubell

    Last one… for now… i think 🙂

    It didn’t happen this time but kinda happened earlier this year when I saw him at an event 😛

  • blubell

    I agree. It was different. I was surprised with couple of the new stories he shared today.

    Actually, the Eastern Conference got WEAKER outside of Charlotte.

    A lot of teams made bad moves and added hyped but ineffective players.

  • Whitman Lam

    Hawks lost De marre Carroll (To Toronto) and Bucks signed Greg Monroe.

  • LAJane

    Thanks a lot for these vids! They’re a different thing than the big venue talks…up close, relaxed, very conversational. I can imagine now what a conversation with him across the kitchen table might be like 🙂 And like you say, some almost surprising new comments. We appreciate his diplomatic skill in front of the sports press, but I’m really enjoying how kind of fearlessly open and natural he can be about his personal experiences and feelings. bluebell, the best!!

  • TTNN

    this one is funny

  • blubell
  • blubell

    In one of the videos that I didn’t upload, he talks about how he is more relaxed because he knows Jason (interviewer). Also, he is relaxed in his Youtube videos because someone he knows (Josh Fan?) is behind the camera.

  • 1mtoldman

    have seen only 3 actual complete breakdown projections of wins and placings for all teams: bleacher report (referred to here by various posters as “that rag” and “lin hater”), sports illustrated (based on win shares) and my own (based on actual going thru the schedules of each team game by game and seeing what games at this point in time seem winable for each)

    interestingly all 3 pretty much agree on the west as to which teams will make the playoffs with only a slight % disparity on whether phnx or dallas gets the 8th

    (with g.s, clips, okc, sa, mem, hstn and n.o. the 7 making all 3 lists)

    but in the east its a little messier with only wash, atl, chi, clev, and tor all in (and wash only by a fingernail) and ind, mia, milw, charlotte and bost variously listed as making the last 3. (here again the margins are close).

    the primary desparity in the east lists would be over mia. with b.r. having them higher and the other two lists lower. and milw. which spreads from as high as 4th to as low as 9th (and out in b.r.)

    s.i. has boston mia and charlotte in and milw and ind. out

    br. goes with: mia milw and ind. in and has charlotte and boston out.

    and i have: milw, ind. in; charlotte and mia. tied for the last spot, and boston out.

    postings here of similar (for entertainment purposes only at this point of course) complete lists/projections or links to other on line would be desired, seeking to compile a composite further down the line.

    ,a href=”http://en.yibada.com/articles/53179/20150811/nba-free-agency-notes-how-jeremy-lin-outsmart-the-mavericks-avoid-lakers-liked-situation-this-offseason.htm”>NBA Free-Agency Notes: How Jeremy Lin Outsmarted the Mavericks, Avoided ‘Lakers-Liked’ Situation This Offseason

    Apparently, Lin just put his Harvard education to proper use by outsmarting the entire Mavericks front-office. And while the botched DeAndre Jordan deal was discouraging news, it’s not the sole reason why Lin had to take a U-turn in his negotiation with the Mavericks.

    As reports of Deron Williams’ impending buyout with the Nets and eventual homecoming to Dallas leaking its way out before it actually broke out to national audiences, Lin did his best to save himself from yet another dreadful situation in Dallas by signing with the Hornets. The rest is history.

    Lin did not only avoid sharing minutes with point guards in the twilight years of their careers (Williams & JJ Barea). He also averted a team projected to be lottery-bound after losing several key pieces from last year’s roster (Rajon Rondo & Tyson Chandler) and missing out on big free-agents this offseason.

    Coming off a nightmarish season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Lin picked a team that gives him a chance to take that next step in his career and compete in the playoffs once again. The Hornets, considering the moves they made this offseason (acquiring more floor-spacer and playmakers through trades, draft and free-agency), can provide all of that.

    With shooters around him, Lin will have the right personnel to create shots for himself and his teammates. Charlotte, on the other hand, is expected to be competing in one of the top-4 spots in the Eastern Conference next season following their acquisition of Lin, Nicolas Batum, Jeremy Lamb, Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky.

    Was it a smart decision for Lin to snub Dallas in favor of Hornets? The answer to this question will all depend on his performance next season, ultimately. But there’s no doubt Lin made the right choice by averting the Deron Williams’ backup experience. Just as Jarrett Jack.

  • Maknusia

    BreakOut Year…is what we are looking forward to! Go Lin

  • blubell
  • TTNN

    Is this reliable?
    “I heard that Coach Clifford stopped by the Bay Area last week for a day to spend time with Jeremy and watch him work out… He, Coach Clifford, came away impressed!”

    http://www.jeremylin.net/2015/08/nice-start.html#disqus_thread

    Given that they rooted in bayarea, must have quite some connection with people in Lin camp, like they were able to interview Lin’s shooting coach every year, I would take their words then.

    On the other hand, in at the hive site, there are fans don’t really trust their coach, and talking about how Hornets landed Lance is because they have a coach “who says one thing, and do other”. That really worry me as I could not take another year with that kind of coach with Lin anymore. However, I can’t see that in Clifford yet, but I could not see how he is going to use Lin with Kemba and AI together either.

    I still could not figure out why Mo/kemba and Lance/Kemba could not work, and then why they would think Lin/Kemba would work. I’m particularly worried about why Mo/Kemba did not work, and after a super good time Mo had in CHA, he won player of the week in East before Kemba come back. Then he was pushed to the bench and significant drop of the playing time there.

  • Brent Yen

    We share the same doubts…..

  • Acbc

    Human nature of survival will determine how it will all play out.

    Number one is MJ and how he wants to go forward with Kemba. He spent a lot of money on Walker so does he want to save face or does he want to win. The bottom line may be for MJ to weigh in the money and notoriety Lin brings to Hornets. For sure advertising will be up due to Lin and so will merchandising and attendance.

    Number 2 is what Is on the line for Cho and Clifford this season. If they feel they don’t need to win, they may decide to promote Walker and use Lin to develop the bench into a formidable power house like he did with LA. This scenario will mean Lin could wind up not getting the kind of minutes he was promised, especially if Walker starts to do the “star routine” to stop Lin from out shining him.

    Number 3 is that Cho sells Lin as his genius pick and use Walker as trade bait to get someone in return from teams desperate for a PG while his value is still high. This is all predicated on Cho and Clifford feeling the heat to show some proof of existence. If they need to win, Lin will be ridden like “freaking Secretariate”. This last scenario will bode very favorbly for a breakout year for Lin.

    Let’s hope for human nature to push these seats of power to rely on Lin to save their jobs.

    “I hope he retires, because I don’t want to see — I probably played two years too long. I hate to see Patrick Ewing, great as he was, struggle — I don’t like seeing great players just out there, you know?” Barkley said.“Michael Jordan playing for the Wizards, that didn’t do anything for me. Kobe’s obviously not going to walk away from $30 million. This should be like a farewell tour, play 20, 25 minutes a night. The Lakers aren’t going to make the playoffs. Could he play some more? Yeah, of course. His best days are behind him. I hear these fools on TV, talking about, ‘Kobe’s going to get healthy.’ Old people don’t get healthy; they die. Old people don’t get healthy. Father Time is undefeated. … You can get in great shape in the summer, because you’re playing against air. Air doesn’t hit back.”

  • Bearness

    I really hope Lin and Hornets will work out well. But, we have seen many NBA teams say one thing to Lin and then treat him in another way. So, I think this means nothing even if it’s true. We will only know how the coach really feels once the season starts.

  • I am The Jason

    The East got stronger. I don’t foresee any team making the playoffs below .500 next season. It will be a battle for the 7th and 8th seed in the East just like it is in the West.

  • KHuang

    The reason Mo/Kemba and Lance/Kemba couldn’t work is because Kemba’s lack of athletic impact requires the SG to be a dribble driving creative superstar.

    Since Walker has trouble penetrating and finishing, the SG becomes the guy that the team turns to in order to run basic plays. But that requires the SG to be a superstar who is athletic and creative enough to draw double teams.

    Lance and Mo were good players but not of superstar ilk.

  • KHuang

    I have a superfan (supertroll)?

    Anyway, I only care about the hoops analysis.

    If the Charlotte Hornets could conjure up an athletic dribble driving two guard that knew how to move off the ball and didn’t need plays run for him and was totally unselfish and was the best defensive guard in the NBA, that player would probably wear a Jeremy Lin jersey.

  • KHuang

    Maybe these teams can pile on their records by playing each other, but most of the Eastern teams are poorly run and have gained overrated players.

    Even Lin’s Hornets may not win much if Lin isn’t played enough.

  • KHuang

    If Lin was playing for any owner but Michael Jordan, I’d be deeply skeptical.

    But this is “Michael Jordan” we are talking about.

    I don’t know how Jordan feels about Lin. My guess is that Jordan has zero opinion good or bad of Lin right now.

    As the season unfolds, we’ll see how Jordan reacts when Lin plays his customary winning game.

    If Jordan is truly serious about winning, he should think about building the Hornets around Lin.

    Interesting side note is that Kobe so desperately tried to bury Lin while chasing MJ’s records on the backs of his LA teammates. MJ showed his contempt for KoBe’s desperate reach for personal records to try to best MJ. He pointedly said that the question isn’t about who is the GOAT, that it should be which team is the greatest of all time. Will MJ stick it to Kobe and allow Lin to become a star in his Hornets to snub Kobe?

    There are many reasons for MJ to allow Lin turn his team into an instant contender, an instant financial success in the same way Dolan’s Knicks stock values jumped, add in advertising, ticket sales and merchandise sales, MJ will be giddy with success fall on his lap. Will be pull a dumb move like Dolan? Who knows, but MJ hopefully has enough smarts to not take advantage of the windfall.

    Because Mo Williams, though not a superstar, can actually dribble and penetrate and draw defenses toward him a little bit.

    That’s what Walker cannot athletically do.

  • KHuang

    As long as Lin is simply allowed to physically enter games and not be a DNP CD Asian, it really doesn’t matter if Jordan or Clifford or teammates don’t believe in Lin.

    Jeremy Lin is an aggressive ballhawk. Lin is the best in the NBA at getting loose balls and cutting to wide open spots and being in the right place at the right time. Lin’s the only player in the NBA who can produce double figure scoring and put his team in the bonus even if he’s completely hated and frozen out.

    I wasn’t worried about him no matter what happened in Houston or LA, as I knew he’d be a winner. But now that Lin has figured out how to ballhawk in the NBA, I am REALLY not worried about him because he’s going to succeed big whether his team supports him or not!

    Finally… new Jubilee Conference 2015 thread is up!
    http://www.jlinportal.com/jeremy-lin-at-jubilee-conference-2015/

  • KHuang

    Lin’s more like Taraf De Haidouks –

    a band of Roma gypsy musicians that was completely dismissed in their own country of Romania because Roma gypsies are heavily discriminated against in not just Romania but all over Europe

    Taraf de Haidouks was a bunch of ghetto Romanian countryside musical geniuses that played low level weddings and parties. They were picked up by a French promoter and put on tour around the world. They instantly became one of the most internationally celebrated bands and toured constantly for 10 years outside Romania before they played their first major performance in their own home country. Today Taraf De Haidouks is in like its 20th year and is going as strong as ever because they are veteran solid musicians who came up the hard way before they had become famous.

    Lin’s still trying to get respect in today’s NBA.

  • Whitman Lam

    But then everyone is God’s Child. The question is, a word that describes YOURSELF.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    I don’t think Lin would have the same financial effect on Charlotte that he had with the Knicks.

    A lot of that have to do with Markets and the fact that Madison Square garden was starving for a super star…

    Then you have the big city big light atmosphere in New York + the large Asian population….

    Those are things that can’t be replicated in Charlotte.

    No doubt, Lin is a + for Charlotte financially if he’s successful there, but don’t expect anything close to the New York energy that he had during the Linsanity year…That was really unique moment at the right place

    It’s a matter of degrees. I’m no fool to know Charlette is no where near the massive market NYC is. It’s the difference of buying blue chip stock at $100 or a penny stock at $10. A gain by percentage is still a gain. We all talk about how Lin’s numbers per 30 minutes as an evaluation of his true talent. Well, this isn’t much different. Dolan is used to the big market of NYC, MJ definitely has a much lower expectations in Charlette.

    You will note that I never mention Linsanity because a small market team like Charlette may not embrace the “buzz” of it. Winning however is a different matter. Once a team gets on a roll in any city large or small, the bandwagon frenzy can give the Hornettes the international cashe it never ever felt before. For a penny stock like Charlette, the buzz will be heard not just locally or even nationally; it will be internationally. I’d buy that stock and ride it like “freaking Secretariate”.
