I am very disappointed. The coach does not seem to like JLin at all. Next thing you know they will not give him playing time on Asian heritage night either.
Relax. He's not going to be cut or even go to D-League. He just needs to learn the plays and keep practicing against Curry/Ellis/Williams/Carney.
Coach wants to make smooth transitionfor Jeremy.His time will come,just get prepared and ready. Too much expectation and hype would shorten his youing career. Easy does it.
Don't feel too bad, JL & fans. Charlie Bell played 5 minutes. Jeff Adrien played 1. Radmanovich and Gadzuric make a combined $14 million -- they combined for 9 minutes. Even Reggie Williams only played 17 minutes.Tonight's game was regulars-only.
I wouldn't take Ellis out if he's having a game like he did tonight. Honestly, there is so much rest in NBA games with time outs, commercial breaks, official lags, free throws...the game is very chill. I can run 5 or 6 pick up games like nothing, where there are no free throws, no time outs, and no subs. There really wont be much of a need for JLin since ellis and curry are much better players. He'll get his chance one day, just not anytime soon with this roster. Curry is young and won't need that much rest anyways.
hmmm... I doubt your pick up games are as intense and physical as any NBA games...
Maybe "Anon 11:07" is Keith Smart.
I drafted him on my fantasy team, wanted him to play one game before i drop him :( when is he going to play, against the clippers?!
"Anonymous said... hmmm... I doubt your pick up games are as intense and physical as any NBA games..."You are kidding me with a response like that right? It has nothing to do with intensity or physicality. I said there are a lot of breaks in organized ball..especially the NBA. With these players being in better shape than 99% of the population, they shouldn't have any problems playing 48 min. a game. So what does all that mean? It means Jeremy will not be playing many minutes. Game 1 already proved that.
On an upnote: The Golden State Warriors won the game. Isn't that what we all really want?
not a big deal, he'll get his shot. a number of non-injured second round draft picks that made the 15-man roster (i.e, dexter pittman on miami) left off the active list.
Lets see, this website is supposedly called the Jeremy Lin website. I guess all we really want is for the Golden State Warriors to win. By the way, I didn't realize that Jeremy Lin was so polarizing that people who did not like him would come here and post comments. I thought that people who do not care about Jeremy would just ignore this website. Well, at least they are helping drive up the popularity of this website.
My mistake, I thought that because Jeremy Lin was from the Bay Area and a BIG Golden State Warriors fan that everyone was also Warriors fans or would become Warriors fans. I'm pretty sure Jeremy would take a win over his on personal agendas. Why so defensive?
Because many of us are not from the Bay Area. We are not necessarily Warriors fans. He can play for any team and we would still root for him.Is every Kobe fan from L.A. ? Do you think every Lebron fan lives in Cleveland ?Fans can be from every part of the world. And they want to see their favorite player on the court.
Curry hurt his ankle again last night and missed practice today -- not serious, but sore. JL might crack the active list tomorrow, after all.Meanwhile, John Wall looks very shaky in his debut -- confused running the point, 3-13 FG, poor defense, and got swatted twice by Dwight Howard. Everyone needs time and minutes to get adjusted.
I wish that Jeremy get a chance to prove himself sooner versus later. He needs to be given a solid chance if he has any chance of making an impact in the NBA. Give the Jeremy a chance!!!!
Realistically, the entire league is extremely deep at the guard position; Team USA had 6 point guards at World's 2010, and that's speaking only POINT guards. Dubs have been ESPECIALLY known for this before trading away Watson, Morrow, Jackson, and Azuibuike. Heck, Morrow even had to play power forward last season 'cause we have so many guards; but that was more Don Nelson just being a douche. People have to realize that Jeremy Lin isn't entitled to playing time, and the guard position is especially competitive for those minutes. He has until February to make his mark, the end of the guarantee of his contract. Keep rooting and supporting him. What Oaklandr8er said is right, sooner is better than later.P.S: Not trying to be pessimistic, just realistically optimistic. My mind is boggled and joyful more than anyone at the fact he's in the league--'HUGE Jlin fan.
Another thing people should keep in mind is that JL has already shown: 1) He can succeed if given 10+ minutes. 2) He sucks if given 1-2 minutes of garbage time.3) The crowd will chant and boo if JL is active but not playing.So there's no rush to activate him right now, since he'd only get 5 minutes of garbage time, tops.
Pretty sure Lin doesn't care if he plays our not.. HE ALREADY BANKED $250,000 GUARANTEED!!!! Thats more money than any of you all can make in 5 years! Playing or not, Lin will say "sayanora suckers!".
I think he care very much about able to play and contribute, it is the right Godly charactor to have. It is already shown that he works very very hard, it is a great start and wonderful witness, I just wish him the best blessing from Lord Jesus!
