Hmmm? A good sized guard who plays defense. I guess that's not what the Warriors need...
Also, the complaints about him being just a marketing ploy are out the window...
Obviously, Jerry West was not a big JLin fan. Looks like they didn't want him beating out their 2nd round pick. That's OK, I believe this is just what Jeremy needs. He needs to play with a chip on his shoulder, like he did against John Wall in the summer league. Honestly, I haven't seen that player since. Now, he may also get the chance to play on a team that actually plays and values defense. This will be a very interesting few weeks before the start of the season.
Also, very nice to see the support and respect JLin got from his teammates on twitter:
