JLin Called Back Up To The Warriors?


Acie Law is seeing a specialist for his hurting wrist. If he is unable to play, Jeremy will most likely be called back up to the Warriors. Is this a good thing? First off, Jeremy is averaging 18 pts in 27 mpg, shooting 52% from the field, 79% from the line, and 40% from behind the arc in 4 games in the D League. It looks like he is improving with each game, getting confidence back in his shot, and making better decisions with the ball. More playing time is what Jeremy needs right now. Will he get any with the Warriors if he is called back up? Probably not. The one good thing is the schedule gets considerably easier in January once the Warriors get back from their current road trip. This would be a great time for JLin to get a chance. If he stays down, I'm fine with it as well. It's fun watching Jeremy get tons of minutes as he gets better and better. He still needs work on his ball handling and decision making. So, as long as he is playing and improving, I'm good with it.

  1. Jeremy can be sent to the D-League at least 3x, so if he gets called back. He can still get called back 2x. If Acie Law is really hurting, then maybe that opens up playing time for Jeremy.

    I like how he gets those oppurtunities to shoot in the D-League. Hopefully his confidences can transfer into the NBA.

  2. It is of course a big deal to be on the 12 man roster, but staying with the Bighorns wouldn't be a bad thing for now. It's fun to actually see him play and he is the team's leading scorer by PPG.

    The other good news is he is not likely to be waived now.

  3. I know those of you concerned about sample size will want to take a shot at this but I offer it because it's interesting. On www.thecity2.com he rates players defensively with a metric called DEF100. Kevin Garnett is the highest rated defender in the league with a DEF100 of 2.66 Jeremy Lin's rating is 2.82 (he is the only Warrior with a positive rating) It's true Garnett's sample size is 8x larger but I submit that the only way to get Lin's true measure is to give him playing time!

  4. 26 points in his last game, he's getting more confident with each game.

  5. yea... just wished he shot better than 9-19 they would have won =/

  6. Like many of you, I wouldn't mind Lin spending a little more time in the D-league. It is fun watching him improve and score a bunch and clearly his confidence is getting a boost (he was practically strutting in the 2nd qtr after his 2nd back-to-back hustle layup). But getting more minutes and working out some of his bad habits as well as tuning up his jumpshot would be real nice.

    If coach Smart coaches the way we all think he will, Lin will be back in the D-league in no time, which really isn't that bad.

  7. Those announcers really didn't like Lin did they? I don't think they had one good thing to say about him the whole game...

    ReplyDelete
  8. Unless Lin is going to get some meaningful minutes, I don't want to see Lin back yet. I want to see him get comfortable with shooting jumpers and 3 ptrs in DL, and show everyone that he is threat from outside. He's not going to get those opportunities riding the bench under Smart.

    PG is kind of like QB in football. Young QBs don't do well if you yank them quick and don't give them leeway to learn from their mistakes. Peyton Manning threw 28 INTs his rookie year, but he still played every snap. The following year he made the Pro Bowl. Not saying that Lin will be an all-star next year, but he would improve a lot more with experience/meaningful minutes.

    No, they certainly weren't that friendly to him. It was like he was an opposing player. They would only grudgingly praise him for a nice move but then quickly give credit to a teammate. But they were always ready to pounce when he missed a shot or turned the ball over.

    The doofus analyst at one point in the game said after an assist, "Miles always makes the right pass on the break", but seconds later on the next break, Miles telegraphs a pass and his defender jumps up and picks it off. Ha ha.

  10. The idiot commentator (you know who I'm talking about) despises Lin. There was one play where Miles passed to Lin who drove baseline and floated one in. Nothing about the finish. Instead the commentator praised the assist. The non-acknowledgement of Lin's good play and immediate criticism reminds me when Yao came into the league. The Asian man has to prove he is twice as good to be accepted.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Another "commentator" gripe I have is from the guy who said "by way of China.." Oh Well, I remmeber from my Asian American Studies class (never would have dreamt I would be quoting from this class on a basketball blog) that it is a kind of bias called the "Perpetual Foreigner" syndrome. I'm a 5th generation Chinese American and still get the "You speak good English" comment from time to time. One reason I like the JLin story is it is about someone who is excelling at something not normally associated with those of Asian heritage. Next thing I'd like to see is an Asian actor star in something that isn't comical or martial arts. Make room...I am now stepping down from my soap box.

    The Bighorn analyst not only makes overly critical remarks about JLin, there is silence when #17 makes a good play. I know nothing about this guy but have the same feeling about him as I do Keith Smart. They are ex-players with marginal skills who never made it and they're griped about it. I hope for their own sakes they get over it. Kudos to Musselman who is doing a good job. I think he deserves another shot somewhere coaching at a higher level.

  12. Agree with those who say it would be good for Jeremy to go to the Showcase where other teams will see him play. The W's should let Charlie Bell get some run while Law is out. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thought the commentators for the Bighorns were absolutely pathetic. They were extremely critical of Jeremy while everyone else on the Bighorns could seem to do no wrong. It became obvious after awhile that they were actually cheering against Jeremy. I agree that this is one small example of the negative bias that Jeremy has to face constantly in the NBA.

    At one point, Jeremy drove baseline for an easy score and their comment is that the other team can't just give uncontested layups like that. At another point, the one guy kept harping on Jeremy's missed alley-oop opportunity and practically blames him for Aaron Miles committing a hard foul on the next play and having to be pulled from the game. Every time Jeremy drove the lane and drew a foul, the comment was that it was a bad decision and that he got "bailed out." There were numerous other little jabs and needless side comments about his game.

    While the D-League has been really helpful for Jeremy's game, one good thing about him going back to the Warriors is that I won't have to listen to these two jokers anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I thought I was the only one who heard what the commentators were saying about JLin. I mean Jeremy Lin did have a few bad plays, but there was no need to start bashing him like that. If they want constructive criticism, they should relate to how the team plays, not just target JLin. For instance, they kept saying how they need to give the ball to Lauder(or whatever his name is), and Lauder with a great look at the basket(but misses), and nice try Lauder. I mean Lauder is good but I don't see anyone praising JLin for his 26 points or even when he makes a shot. This is definitely the reason why JLin has to be in the NBA, to defy stereotypes and not "By Way of China" but by the way of JLin.

  15. I did finally manage to see Jeremy live (in Reno no less) and had a great time watching his talent showcased in this D league forum. The added benefit was not having to listen to the commentators. If JL does repeat a stint with the Big Horns, I highly recommend his supporters to make the drive. It's an intimate forum that is also very kid-friendly. My wife and I met many of the players afterwards including Jeremy.

    As for his game, I had a better appreciation of his leadership skills. He played a very well-rounded game. His performance a the end lagged somewhat, but overall a great back to back performance.

  16. this commentator is not friendly to JLin. yesterday game, when AMile missed a layup with the ball not even touch the rim or board, the commentator did not say anything.

  18. Someone should "backseat commentate" on the commentators in Reno to balance those jokers out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The "China" comment was actually made by the Jam commentators but they were exponentially better than these reno homers. The Jam commentators knew what they were talking about and gave praise to JLin when he made a good play saying no wonder the warriors were quick to sign him as a free agent. LOL at the reno morons saying that the reason JLin was able to finish at the rim was because the DLeague taught him that skill. Uh how about no. JLin was always able to attack the basket. These idiots need to get fired. If there is a next game then I'm watching with the mute on.

    So the beat writers are saying that law will be back in time to play in orlando tonight. I guess we'll have to wait and see if JLin is still in reno or if he's on a flight to orlando.

    Lin has been recalled despite Law's hand being okay. Great news. JL will rejoin the team in New Orleans.

  21. "Golden State Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson tweeted this morning that rookie Jeremy Lin will be recalled from the D-League Reno Big Horns tomorrow. Lin was sent down to the Big Horns last week and has made a very solid impression in a short amount of time. Since debuting with Reno on December 28, Lin has appeared in four games, starting the last two, pouring in 18.0 points per game. While he has not led the team in scoring in any one game, he currently has the highest points per game on the roster. He's fourth on the team in field goal percentage, but is also leading the team in turnovers with 3.5 turnovers per game.

    The Warriors can recall a player as many times as they want from the D-League but they can only officially assign a player to the D-League three times in one season. This was Lin's first assignment to Reno. The Warriors split Reno with the Sacramento Kings and it includes a fairly impressive roster for former college stars, including Aaron Mile, Nick Fazekas, Patrick Ewing, Jr, and DJ Strawberry (son of Darryl)."

  22. I'll tell you what's going on with the two commentators. the white guy thinks he can relate to jeremy lin because he's white and can't play ball, obviously inferiority complex but trying to hide it. the black guy is a fat man who's never seen an asian baller, and as an ex-player he thinks asians are taking jobs away from black people, this is how black people think.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Jeremy Lin will be recalled from the NBA Development League tomorrow and will join the team in New Orleans.

    Lin will be available for Wednesday’s game for New Orleans. GM Larry Riley is calling him up because he’s gotten quite a bit of playing time with Reno and he’s looked pretty good in their eyes. Riley saw him in person once.

    RILEY: “He played pretty good. He’s played four games and we got what we wanted. He’s gotten minutes and worked on his shooting a little bit and is playing with confidence.”

    In four games, two starts, Lin averaged 18 points (a team-high) on 52.3 percent shooting in 26.8 minutes. He also made 4 of 10 from 3-point range and averaged 4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 3.5 turnovers. He took 28 free throws (making 22) in four games.

    Lin will likely go back to Reno. If Acie Law is healthy, there will be no minutes for Lin on the Warriors, save for the occasional garbage time run or extreme foul trouble. Riley said he wants him to get a good 20 to 30 games with extending playing time this season. If not with the Warriors, then it has to be with Reno. So, chances are he will be sent back down at some point. The Warriors can do that two more times this season.

    While he’s here, they will now get to look at his progress up close. He can do some work with the assistant coaches, who can evaluate him and give him more to work on. Riley pointed out that it will be good for Lin, a hoop junkie, to get to watch Chris Paul up close. Plus, Lin will almost assuredly get a bit of motivation from being back with the big team.

    ******************

    Lin was expected to stay in Reno a little bit longer. But Riley called him up because of the uncertainty surrounding Acie Law, who flew to New York to see a specialist about his ailing right wrist.

    Law is in transit right now, from New York to Orlando. I talked to him while he was in a cab to the airport. He said his flight arrives at 5:30 Orlando time. With traffic, he should be able to get to Amway Center at about 6 p.m. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

    He was cleared to play, but he does have an issue with his right wrist, which he injured at Utah on Dec. 13. His wrist has been taped since then, and he said he has no problem playing through the pain. Law said the specialist said he couldn’t do more damage to it, but he may have a slight tear. For now, it is officially listed as a sprained right wrist.

    Law said he can play and wants to play. The Warriors were the ones who insisted Law gets his wrist checked out. All contracts become guaranteed on Jan. 10. So before they lock him up for the year, Riley wanted to be sure he would be able to play. They didn’t want Law to play until Jan. 11 and then have surgery and be lost for the season.

    Riley said he does want to keep Law around. Smart does, too. He’s locked Law in as Curry’s back-up for the immediate future and created a rotation to get Law about 15 minutes a night.

    Seems like Smart and Riley have some man love for Law, and that Lin could contribute more off the bench than Law, but I still would rather see Lin starting for Reno and getting 30 minutes a night, vs. riding the bench with the Warriors.

  24. you are wrong. the black guy is just looking out for his guy who obviously is miles. the white guy is looking out for his own, trying to say everything right but who knows what he actually feels about the whole thing. these guys are bad but do you know who are worst? fitz, barnett and the rest of the warriors' media mouths.

    ReplyDelete
  25. January 10 is coming and it looks like the Warriors will keep Lin's contract. That's good news but I still would prefer that he stayed with the Bighorns for now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't know if the call up is so great. What's the sense in bringing Lin back if he just ends up sitting on the bench game after game? It doesn't help the warriors and it sure wouldn't help Lin. If one can improve by just watching NBA games, I should be an all-star by now LOL. Maybe it only works in those magical courtside seats.

    Acie Law took Lin's spot as the b/u PG. Now he's impeding Lin's development with this "visit" to a specialist... lol I am kidding!

    As for the reno analyst, it's unprofessional, very similar to cliques in an office environment. It's almost as if something went wrong when Lin was introduced to those guys behind the scenes.... But hey, it doesn't effect how Lin plays at all. Any NBA scouts watching the video wouldn't pay any mind to the commentators anyway.

  27. Oh btw, JLin if you are reading this, buy Ethan O'Bryant and Dan Gustin a case of beer if you ever go back to Reno. Or better yet, a gelato machine for Ethan!

    Good job in the d-league! Keep workin on that jumper.

    ReplyDelete
  28. By the way, the reason JL is not joining the team tonight is that he's played two games in two days (and today is an early game, 4pm PST).

    Jumper will be fine -- already looks better. Passing is a concern. He doesn't have a great handle, so he needs to be extra smart with the ball (and stop getting himself in trouble in the paint).

  29. Lin and Law have had their contracts guaranteed for the rest of the season, according to Steinmetz.

    Carney appears to be on the chopping block for Jan 10th.

  31. I still think it is a little strange that Lin is being called up now when he most likely won't see any minutes. He was definitely improving, so why cut it short?

    Possible reasons:
    1) Insurance in case Law's wrist doesn't get better
    2) They are not that happy with Law's production (or lack of).
    3) They want to see for sure if they want to guarantee him past the 10th (even though Steinmetz reported they already decided to).
    4) Lacob jumping the gun and wanting his pick back up with club (perhaps ticket/jersey sales had taken a dip while Lin was gone).
    5) All of the above.

  32. I'm from the Philippines and watched Jeremy Lin play. JEREMY CAN PLAY BALL!!!

    His opening stint with the WARRIORS, no minutes, no trust which is primarily the cause of his stats not going anywhere. But that doesn't mean he CAN'T PLAY!

    Look at HEDO TURKOLU, he had BAD STATS with the PHOENIX SUNS, but suddenly out from nowhere, when he returned to MAGIC, he has now triple double statistics? Why is that so? Because he is comfortable playing with the MAGIC

    How can JEREMY LIN be comfortable with the WARRIORS when their HEAD COACH does not even trust him. Let's put that in record. The coach of the warriors send him in during GARBAGE TIME?

    And why do you think Jeremy Lin plays so good when the Lakers are the opponents, because Jeremy knows that the LAKERS have confidence in him which was one of the teams interested signing him up.

    I am player of basketball here in our Country. And All players will second to what will I say. If you feel that your teammates are looking down to you especially your head coach, your game even though how good or excellent it is will not show.

    So, simple. The Warriors SHOULD TRUST JEREMY LIN ONCE AND FOR ALL, after all they have nothing to lose, but more to gain. They are losing for god's sake!

    How many times in the NBA, a player not worthy of a basketball team when brought to another team SHINES??? huh? huh? how many times? And why do you think that happens? Did those players improve their game? or did they simply switch teams?

    Coach Smart, I hope you'll be smart enough this time to trust Jeremy Lin. If you don't trust him then you might as well send him to a team who will trust him more!

  35. law is possibly the worst pg in nba history and for him to even get any minutes over lin just because he is smart's little buddy shows how god awe full an organization like the warriors are. riley is the absolute worst gm ever who makes bad decisions year after year. what gm allows their rookie coach to make the personnel decisions beats the hell out of me. riley, smart and law all needs to be let go. and monta needs to be traded for a taller sg. he is getting raped every day by the likes of j.richardson. this organization is a mess.

    ReplyDelete
  36. this makes the 2-weeks dleague assignment even more suspicious. they obviously don't plan to play lin while curry and law are both active. so after the 2-weeks is up, what exactly were their intentions? did they needed the 2-weeks to decide whether or not to keep or waive lin? or is it they other way around with law? maybe that's why law rushed back to play against orlando, he knew that he had to perform within the 2-weeks or he would get waived by jan 10?

    ReplyDelete
  37. has there ever been a player in the league who has been waived twice within a couple of months continue playing in the league? if law gets waived again, i highly doubt we will ever see him back in the league again. thank goodness. on a side note, i doubt there is anything wrong with law's wrist. maybe he is making up an excuse for his poor performance just so he can survive the jan 10th deadline before the warriors decide to waive him.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Really have mixed feelings right now about whether Lin is better off in the D-League or riding the bench with the Warriors. Even if he gets some of Law's minutes, his development in Reno is much more beneficial. Musselman is the only person I have any respect for in the whole Lin saga.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Boy, the Warriors coaching staff and GM are a bunch of clowns. They should be starring on "Days of Our Lives" not the NBA. Yes, I'm talking to you Smart and Riley! 1) Smart you can not coach, and you certainly do not belong in the NBA. It is a shame to have a looney run an NBA team when he has no clue on how to motivate his players, chew them out, or even set up some sort of noticeable game plan. 2) Riley, why in the heck would you want to keep Acie Lady with the Warriors? Healthy or not, the guy is simply "not that good" (I'm being kind). These two clowns are like the laughing stock of the NBA...and you got to love their comments. Smart always seems be a cheerleader and fan of his players, and Riley says he wants to keep Acie Lady around. When I look at the salaries for the players on the Warriors team, something is wrong...you have bench warmers (aweful players with no hope)...making millions and millions. How in the world did they get to this point?

    Please, Mr. Lacob, start chopping the trees soon. Chop it at the root, trunk and all...the disease you have now is spreading to the branches and its nipping at the bud, and killing it before it even has a chance to bloom...

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like Lin staying in D League longer. Smart already said that Lin is called-up only for insurance. In the D-League Lin is playing with aggressiveness and confidence. He has already improve in outside shots, scoring, etc. He will likely clean-up the TO and improve the assist next.

    As for the Warriors, I really don't see much difference in performance between Acie Law and Charlie Bell. Since W. is already committed to Bell's contract, why not play Bell instead of Law. What a waste of money! Use the money to get a shooter. When the other team is focus on Monte to drive, someone else will be opened. Warrior needs a pure shooter. (This guy does not even need to be mobile.)

    ReplyDelete
  41. So what's the story? Is he being called up or not?

    Personally I'd rather see him stick it out in Reno for a little while longer. Seems like Musselman is a pretty good coach and has a system in place (something the W's are seriously lacking under Keith Smart). There's really no point in him being called up to ride the pine again with a coach that won't give him a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It will be interesting to see who plays and who doesn't for the next 3 games. Smart will do everything he can to keep Law, but it seems like he will have to give Lin a few minutes to show that he does or doesn't belong. Either way, I would like to see Lin return to Reno to play January 12 and 13 in Texas.

    Agree too that they ought to take a look at Bell in place of Law.

    I kind of doubt we'll see Miles. He is a shade worse than Law. In the last game against the Stampede, he had two layups hit the bottom of the rim without a foul. Hard to do.
    Not great on D either.
    He does get his fair share of assists though which isn't easy in the D-league as the perimeter shooting is atrocious.

    Good analysis of Miles. Just a little frustrated about how Lin is handled. My preference is that Lin go somewhere else. Even if the W's try to give him a chance, a bunch of fans will say it's just a marketing move.

  51. Interesting question is coming up. Biedrins and Lee practiced today and will suit up tomorrow. Does Lin even make the 12 man roster? Carney is gone. That means of Bell, Lin, and Law two have to sit out. Which two would you pick?

  52. This is funny. ESPN's depth chart for the W's has Monte->Lin->Law->Curry as the order for PG.

    Hopefully it will be Bell and B.Wright or Law.
    But more than likely it will be Bell and Lin .

  53. good question. but if it's up to anyone of us here, even monta would have to sit in place of lin. so of course we'd say bell and law to sit. unfortunately it's up to smart and he's going to play his little buddy law.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No one's mentioned it here yet, but Jeremy Lin (and Acie Law)'s contract have been guaranteed for the rest of the season. It's an interesting move because one would think the Warriors would keep EITHER Law or Lin, not both. The Warriors have 4 guards 6'3". Losing Carney means Reggie Williams will play more small forward at 6'5". In theory, Lin can play the 2 guard spot instead of PG in a four guard rotation. I am surprised what went down today because Carney was more a natural backup small forward than Williams.

  56. Jeremy lin needs to improve on following things:

    His free throws: he needs to be able to shoot around 85% range in consistent basis.
    There are many games that I have seen this year, his free throw sucks.

    Lack of selfishness: He needs to be more aggressive and take the role of scoring when he feels there is a lack of it. Instead of passing, take the ball to the rim and take a foul and go to the free throw line.

    These are the things Jeremy mentioned he needs to improve on:

    Being a poing guard and being decisive on what he wants to do.
