  1. Great video Aman2k! Very good overall play by Lin. I'm glad he's getting an opportunity to work on his game. I also believe this is a better for him in the longer term.
    Lin wasn't bringing the ball up but he was creating a lot of the offense and handling the ball quite a bit.
    Among things I think he needs to learn is how to throw an alley-oop pass and the ideal spot for it.

  5. Nice article on www.nba.com. JLin is admits having misgivings about being "demoted", but now is taking advantage of the opportunity. That's the attitude! He did everything he was supposed to and I hope he hones his game a bit more. He will play more NBA games this season and that is my prediction. Next time though, I think he'll get more meaningful minutes.

  6. BTW, think about what will sell NBA League Pass - a fan-base for a player with many fans out of the core team market. For what it's worth, JLin is not just a great marketing tool for his team, but for the whole NBA. I hope his agent takes full advantage of that variable.

    Good tip on the Musselman interview during the Texas/Iowa game (see Futurecast) It's on during the 2nd quarter.

  8. It seems like Lin missed several opportunities to get easy assists with players cutting or rotating to double cover Lin. Still needs to work on his PG skills especially his vision for Assists.

    But looks good that he is playing the offensive side with confidence.

  11. "It seems like Lin missed several opportunities to get easy assists with players cutting or rotating to double cover Lin. Still needs to work on his PG skills especially his vision for Assists."

    He has only been with current teammates for two games; give him time.

    His free throw motion looks very good, but he seems to miss a lot more on fourth quarter; don't know if that is just physical or mental fatigue, but he does need to hit those as he doesn't have the athleticism of Ellis to finish strongly at the hoop; he has to earn his points at the free throw line.

  13. He got hit on the head while drawing the foul. So probably he was shaken up and couldn't convert on those free throws or the wide open jumper on the next possession.

  14. Thanks everyone. I hope to be able to make more Lin video highlights in the future.

  17. curry and monta will make everybody else's offense look bad. especially the jumpers since their's look so good

  18. coming from a avid ball player myself, it seems like lin needs to focus on court awareness, passing and playing the 1.

    if he wants to make it in this league, he needs to start studying tapes. he is trying to prove that he is a scorer right now, and that is pointless. there's way too many 2 guards that can score better than him and some of them are out of jobs. so he should formulate his game after luke ridnour/ steve nash type players.

    also spot up shooting needs to improve.

  19. for his own sake, i hope lin doesn't read this message board and just concentrate on what he thinks he needs to do to succeed.

  20. I kinda agree with anon 8:43p. I'd like to see him be a Nash-type player. Smart, skilled, controlled, effective, and makes his team's offense flow. However, I have trouble seeing him develop into that with the Ws. I think if you dropped a young Nash into today's Ws, he would be in the D-league too. Before people jump on me for the comparison, I am NOT saying Lin == Nash (yes, I am a programmer).

    As for Lin's jumper, it can look bad at times and the form is not the smoothest, but his shooting % is a lot better than I expected (esp from 3-pt range).

    On a side note, Law quietly drops yet another dud against a bad road team in the Clippers (3-12 away) 15 mins 2 asts 1 reb 2 pts -7 (2nd worst on the team). I wonder how much longer the front office will put up with such paltry production.

  21. Lin = "nba player"
    mrChuckles = "programmer"

    function Nash(occupation)
    {
    match1 = /programmer/
    case occupation.search(match1) == "programmer"
    return "nerd"
    else
    return "nba player"
    }

    if Lin == Nash (yes, "I am a programmer")
    {Lin = dleague}
    else
    {Lin >= Monta + Curry}

    j/k

  22. He's not Nash -- he's a stat-stuffing defensive specialist. Like I've said before, he's a dirt-poor man's D-Wade. He's capable of being an average starter or an outstanding backup PG/SG.

  24. interviewer: "does golden state sux?"

  25. I love jeremy lin, but although he's making points in this higlight ... it is imperative that Jeremy improves the form of his shot ...

    his shot does not follow the basketball mechanics that we knew ... it's for the better ... he should add back spin all the time so that the ball does not appear to be just thrown away rather than being shot ...

    then again ... i love jeremy lin

  26. In today's Mercury News, Keith Smart is quote as saying he has a "reject squad" of players, Law, Gadzuric, and Radmanovic, who were rejected by other teams. He says he likes them because of his days as a journeyman player (by the way he wasn't even good enough to be a journeyman) Thus it is easy to see he would reject an undrafted rookie that came in with much fanfare. The point is, either Keith must go or Jeremy must go. I prefer that Lin leaves, he's proven his NBA potential and the Warriors hase shown they will be mediocre for a long time. That said, I will continue to root for both if they are separate things.

  27. The only thing that separates Lin at this point is his defensive plays, his drives to the rack, also did he get a block or not?, he didn't get credit for it in his stat sheet, it is easier said than done to become a Nash-like player, that in no way happens overnight, but I see ur points, in that Lin can more-so penetrate and dish, instead of just penetrating all the time, and of course we all know Lin needs to work on his shooting, did u see Lin with the two post moves? Nice; overall fairly entertaining, it could be better, but better than watching him with his 2 minutes with the Warriors games. Let's be honest, the media is giving Lin some preferences at times, giving Lin attention sometimes when he doesn't always deserve it, and part of that is because of crazy fans like us. But at the same time, this is sports, and part of sports is entertainment, intrigue, sometimes even drama and inspiration. And Lin has that potential solely from his backstory, that no other player can replicate.

  28. I've lost all desire to watch the NBA since Yao has been injured, Yi is struggling, and Jeremy isn't playing. I liked the NBA before but having the taste of people I can identify with play and then having them leave has dampened my enthusiasm. I would rather watch more Asian players in the D- League with steady rosters than the NBA without a doubt. Baseball has thriving minor leagues. Why can't the NBA?

  29. going left off the dribble, missed badly bankshot and nearly banked it in doing the same at the top of key.

    Needs a LOT of work. Driving, defense, passing off the drive - NBA level. Passing off a set play- needs A LOT of work
