Isn't this fun? This is how it was like back in the day, with Magic and Michael. After watching Jeremy play this past week, I realize a better comparison for him would be a cross between Magic and Michael. These are the guys his dad loved and boy did it rub off on his son. The Lakers back in the 80's with Magic were the "Showtime" Lakers. Now, New York with Jeremy are the "Shu-HowTime" (Shu-How is his middle name) Knicks.
Also, a better comparison then Tim Tebow would be Kurt Warner, another man of "Faith". He came from nowhere to dominate and win the Super Bowl in his rookie year.
Here are the highlights of the Knicks @ Raptors. Jeremy with the Jordan like 3 to win it. Up next tonight, the Kings. Sit back and enjoy "Shu-HowTime"!
3x's on the TOP TEN!!!!ReplyDelete
Jeremy Lin is sick, just sick...ReplyDelete
The ShuHow-gun of Harlem!Delete

Had Lin's clone Micheal "Sugar" Ray Richardson stayed off drugs, he'd have been as good as Jeremy Lin.ReplyDelete
Lin appears to be a better pick and roller than Sugar while Sugar prefers isolation scoring. Defensively they appear equal.
I am amazed that NBA talent evaluators have had to call around the league to ask who Lin played like. All they have to do is go on youtube and see Sugar dominate the way Lin does.

i noticed that the spacing on offense was poor for most of the game. You can tell amare was just getting adjusted to the new system. They were going to him early for iso's and that's when calderon shot lights out. JLIN couldn't attack as effectively with the double teams coming as soon as he crossed the half court. Tyson and Amare will have to do a better job of setting up screens to break up those traps much sooner. i think novak should start in place of walker tonight. I know jeremy is aware of the TO stats. he's definitely going to do a much better job taking care of the ball tonight. i think amare still doesn't move around too much which led to their offense being stagnant. he sorta resorted to hang around the paint waiting for the dump off or receive the ball for a mid range jumper (his game, no ball movement). I'm thinking that melo's going to have the same problem too. But i believe they can quickly adjust to the new style. they stole this one!ReplyDelete
I like both your and bicylethief's analysis. Can you guys post these comments to Knicks website too? These suggestions are useful for them.Delete
Loving the Lin attention, but let's be objective too: his defense needs work. He was being lit up by Calderon in the first half. Shumpert was switched over and shut Calderon down which was one of the keys to the comeback. And with two more turnovers, Lin would've had dubious triple double. These things just add to the amazing ending, I think, for despite these negatives, he clearly didn't lose heart.ReplyDelete
It sounds delusional now, but at that point I considered Harvard my team. It was going to be the vehicle that propelled me to baskteball stardom. Hey, Jeremy wasn’t the only one with aspirations. It’s a little crazy to consider, but in 2007, I was running the show. A show that perpetually underachieved and would accomplish nothing of note, but at least I was running it.ReplyDelete
Then, almost all at once, it became Jeremy’s squad. He became the star of the team during my injury-plagued junior year, and by my senior season he was the focal point of the entire offense. That alone made me feel a little uneasy about my situation.
And then everything came to a head after the Boston College game.
That game marked Jeremy’s first foray onto the national stage. He single-handedly dismantled Boston College, a team that had recently defeated the number one team in the country. He was sensational. This was the first case of Linsanity gripping a group of people. We jubilantly chanted his name on the shuttle ride back to campus.
There were a few clips on SportsCenter about the game. At the time, being on TV at all was the zenith of recognition for a Harvard basketball player. The team watched the clips over and over, awed that we were actually on ESPN. That one game catapulted Jeremy, however briefly, into the national consciousness. It injected the whole program with a sense of optimism.
His team all seems to love him but melo was noticeably muted in yesterday's celebration. Me thinks the jealousy is setting inReplyDelete
I think Carmelo Anthony is going to be just fine.Delete
Once Lin starts creating easy shots for him, he'll join in the celebration.
The only real concern I have is for guys like Novak and Balkman who will lose minutes to Anthony. However, I can also see the Knicks beating down opponents so badly that it creates opportunities for the bench players to get back in the game.
As much as I enjoy Linsanity, it would be nicer for the Knicks to start winning games in the 1st half and then coasting the rest of the way.
Agree with winning games early, fewer heart attacks coming from a game like yesterday.Delete
basketball is a team game not an individual game. i wonder if d'atoni will have the guts to reduce melo's minutes and let the other bench guys who played well during the winning streak get some minutes.Delete
Dantoni won't hesitate to bench anybody on that entire Knicks team EXCEPT for Lin.Delete
Without a capable scorer and defender at the PG position, Dantoni cannot rest Lin. Nobody can come in and keep the Knicks in the game when Lin sits down.
As the season wears on, the Knicks will become a little like the Heat in which there are two and a half primary scorers (seldom do all 3 Heat All Stars have 20+ scoring all in the same game) and a rotating constellation of role players who can go off in any game.
LOL! from espn...ReplyDelete
Jeremy Lin's game-winning 3-pointer was the shot heard around Twitter on Tuesday night. Here are some posts:
"Floyd Mayweather I Hope You Watched Jeremy Hit The Gamewinning 3 Pointer With .005 Seconds Left.Our Guy Can BALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE.RECOGNIZE." -- director Spike Lee
"Chuck Norris may wear Tebow pajamas but I'm pretty sure he has a Jeremy Lin night light to scare the boogeyman away. Wow! What a run!!!" -- Heat forward Shane Battier
"Its crazy! I'm watching Linsanity hoping every shot goes in. Hope I never grow up." -- Suns guard Steve Nash
"OK, I GIVE IN!!!!!!!!!!! Its Legit!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!" -- TNT NBA analyst Reggie Miller
"@JLin7 's shot was great... His celebration ill say was fair at best LOL #Linsanity" -- Warriors forward David Lee
"I wish I was Jeremy Lin." -- CNN host Piers Morgan
"Vatican has been looking for that second miracle to make John Paul a saint...cld it be #Linsanity " -- talk show host Bill Maher
I can't take it anymore, how can this be happening!!!
My 4 year old son and I were watching the game, my son said he wanted to goto harvard.
I love this guy!!
Hey Guys, You may enjoy this list I made of Lin nicknames: http://www.appstorechronicle.com/2012/02/30-jeremy-lin-nicknames-for-jlin7.htmlReplyDelete
another GREAT article! these things seem to be a dime a dozen these days...LMFAO!!!! I'M LOVING IT!ReplyDelete
i think teams are still daring jlin to drive to the left. gotta keep defenders honest so they don't cheat to his right. i know lin is working on his left drive in practice.ReplyDelete
Does anyone have replays of the game where Lin has TO's? I want to see how the to's are happening. But man Lin keep it up! It's getting harder and harder to not get league pass.ReplyDelete
And I doubt Amare will not have two bad nights shooting. So it should be easier next few games versus Sac and NO. Dallas should be another interesting one.

He was driving into heavy traffic and forcing things because there weren't many other offensive options on floor.Delete
Honestly, really not concerned about the high turnover number right now. He's still learning where his teammates will be, and he doesn't have Stat and Melo and offensive options to spread the floor.
