Oops, posted the wrong link in the last thread. This is Steinmetz talking about Lin (the last question)http://www.csnbayarea.com/03/10/11/bSteinmetzb-NBA-mailbag----Time-to-play-/landing_steinmetz_v3.html?blockID=437700&feedID=5986&qv=1#bp
Jeremy has always been a humble and respectful guy.
Nice interview. He's certainly not the type to complain and become overtly antagonistic about playing time, for instance, as is the case with people these days about a many things not just pertaining to sports. It's a cultural thing for sure, but I think it would do him good to carry a certain 'swag' or an aura of intellectual prowess about him. Not everything should be about a 'degree'.
Jeremy holds his own on the court and will exert his leadership skills. Unfortunately he is still trying to earn the respect of his coach and teammates. He became a leader very quickly in Reno and ran that offense well. The key for him is to maintain a level keel and be a little patient. His world will change for the positive next season.
really? just exactly where did Steinz "compliment" lin.. you all smokin something? lmao
@anonymousCan't seem to find the word "compliment" posted anywhere except in your own words. Your opinion is allowed here, but please try to give the impression you've actually read things. Thanks
you can be technical if you like but didn't you implied it with "The most interesting thing is that Steinmetz has changed his attitude about Jeremy." so where exactly did his attitude change about lin?and, are you the blog admin or something that you feel you have an authoritative say whether someone's opinion is welcome or not? why are you complaining about technical things when you posted a wrong link to steinz's comments. talk about hypocrisy.
@ anonHey anon, you are a punk and I hate you. Why are you being so mean? Get a life!!!
steinmetz changing his tune a bit about jeremy:http://www.csnbayarea.com/03/10/11/bSteinmetzb-NBA-mailbag----Time-to-play-/landing_steinmetz_v3.html?blockID=437700&feedID=5882
Dude always looks and sounds tired like he didn't sleep the previous night.
Yea,he always looks like he is lazy or just trying to fall asleep when he talks.Anyways,good interview by Lin.http://www.jimmynews.co.cc/
Welcome back, Anon, I knew you'd come back. =) 10e8, thanks for posting the link to the Steinmetz mailbag. I'm always interested to read what others are saying about Lin. Here's the text for those that didn't click on the link:Is Jeremy Lin part of the future? If so, is it time to cut Ellis' and Curry's minutes and let Lin develop some more? --Steve, Bay Area.Steinmetz: Well, I don't know how many minutes of Curry's I'd want to give him, or even Ellis for that matter. Let's not get carried away. But I certainly would be willing to give him a good chunk of Acie Law's minutes. I don't think there's any doubt Lin is part of the future. New owner Joe Lacob made that pretty clear during an interview I had with him a month or so back. Lacob called the Lin signing "phenomenal" and said he'd be very surprised if Lin isn't on the team next season. So, yeah, it looks like he's part of the future.It doesn't sound like Steinmetz has changed his attitude about Lin. If you read between the lines, Steinmetz basically thinks Lin is not NBA caliber, and will never be. Steinmetz also knows that Lin is favored by Lacob, so Lin will be a part of the Warriors future. Whereas Acie Law probably won't be back next year, since Keith Smart mostly won't be back next year. Hence, Steinmetz is okay giving Acie's minutes to Lin. Steinmetz's attitude is comparable to how many people view affirmative action. They resent that person because they feel they've received preferential treatment and don't deserve to be here (even if they've proven they belong).
