so, what exactly are lin and fields doing in their pregame handshake?
Reading book, put glasses in shirt pocket, hook pens on shirt, and point upstairs to God.
yo, the #1 JLin hater has removed his comment filter & changed the title from "SUCKS" to "FAIL". HAHAHHAcheck it out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCCUNTwhwRk
Jeremy Lin is EXTREMELY gracious, he keeps giving credit to D'Antoni's system, his teammates, says he also got better. He could say the TRUTH which is that his game has been legit like this for years and all the "experts" were DEAD WRONG. These "experts" downplayed good plays Lin made in front of them and amplified his mistakes, in order to fit their prejudice of what he was as a player. Nobody had the balls to say this kid could flat out play. Even Kobe Bryant agrees, here is Kobe post-game implying that all the "experts" were idiots:-------------------Kobe Bryant on Lin:"He has been phenomenal," Bryant said. "We have watched some tape on him. We came up with a strategy that we thought would be effective, but he was knocking down his jump shot, penetrating and he got around our guards. … "Players don't usually come out of nowhere. If you can go back and take a look, his skill level was probably there from the beginning, but no one ever noticed. … It is a great story. It is a testament to perseverance and hard work. It is a good example to kids everywhere."
Hubie Brown at 2:40 on the video above says: "when you look at him, he's deceiving because he's 6'3" and he's 200 lbs, he can take the hits without losing control of either the shot or the pass...." and then the other guy continues and says: "it's not like he's this diminutive guard....."I still don't know what's deceiving about being 6'3" 200 lbs. If that's your height/weight, isn't that, like, your height/weight ? And doesn't that further imply you're not a diminutive guard ?Ok, well I do know: if he was a white or black guy, noone would be saying there's anything deceiving about, um, er, facts. But when its an Asian dude, for some strange reason, none of these guys can get over their innate/unconscious prejudice that an Asian dude is really supposed to be just a scrawny weakling that's supposed to automatically lose control when he gets hit.And that's really why noone picked Lin up, lets be honest here. This is just what a lot of the guys on this board already knew (I've been lurking since Day 1, great site BTW). The facts never mattered, the high efficiency and per 48 never mattered ("statistical anomaly"), the high school championship never mattered, what Diepenbrock said about his insane play-making didn't matter, the 25+ point games against Uconn, BC, etc never mattered, the top 10 in 8 statistical categories in the Ivy League never mattered ("its the Ivy League!" and witness Steve Smith ragging on the guy from Harvard 2 weeks ago- remember that fool ?), the video where he outduels Wall in summer league didn't matter, awesome games in the D-league, including a triple double, and what Musselman said didn't mattered ("it's the D-league!"), even the games against the Nets/Jazz/Washington didn't matter ("those teams' records are like a combined 10/40 !").He was an Asian guy, and none of this could ever have been real until dragon lit a fire up under Kobe's ass.
Jeremy has always had good fundamentals but he's improved a lot since last year. Remember how he was struggling with his free throws? Remember how he would over penetrate and get blocked or commit an offensive foul? Remember how he stuggled with his outside shot? Remember how he had trouble going to his left? This guy is a student of the game and works hard. He worked on his free throws, he worked on his shooting form, and his dribbling is vastly improved. He focused on getting better and being the man God wanted him to be. Then when God opened the doors, he was ready. What a great example of the sovereignty of God and man's resonsibility.
Another nice highlights videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iWWFk6TX18&feature=player_embedded
The look on Derek Fisher staring at Jeremy Lin is just priceles, considering the way he shoved Lin back when he was in Golden State. 6:59 - 7:01
I don't mean to bring up old news but yall remember that team photo shoot Spain did during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing??? I like Rubio as a player but I hope Karma bites him in the ass...
karma already bit Gasol today.....
LOL, Kobe and the rest of the gang too....
The next photo shoot Gasol and Rubio do have them squinting because they are blinded by Lin shine
Had to do it, went and bought League Pass. Rewatching, I noticed the big bruise on his arm that someone else mentioned. It brought back memories for me as a kid growing up in Chinatown. I'd get bruises like that, and I would go over to my Paw Paw's house where she had this jar of something called Heet Da Jow. It was this weird stuff. It had a snake in it! Whatever it was, it was great on black and blue bruises. Wish I still had some, I'd send it to Lin. The way teams guard him, he'll need gallons of that stuff. lol
interesting backstory about what happened with stanford and jeremy linhttp://www.zagsblog.com/2012/02/10/coach-says-jeremy-lin-was-misled-by-stanford-coach/
First quarter: Y'all saw the floater that was 'no good'? U know how hard it is to do that? How much u have to play to have that sort of feel for the game? Oh boy...he's GOOD all right...and he CAN be great. He is basketball, what I mean by that is, he knows the game so well that, he knows exactly what to do when he's on the court. Basketball is his home, God's taken him home, the journey ain't over, but he's definitely where he belongs. We're all overjoyed and making a raucous, but why are we pretending to be surprised? For those of you who's been playing basketball and really know the game, should know by watching Jeremy Lin that not only is he fundamentally sound, but he's a floor general, like a quarterback, so your understanding of the game has to be high, but in the case of Jeremy Lin, it's superior. Look, he's obviously on fire and in the zone right now and it's a beautiful thing, but come on boys and girls, he's an athlete and not to discredit what he's been doing, but hey..... sometimes when you got it, u got it...basketball is second nature to him. He's no different from a Chris Paul(CLIPS NEWBIE), Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose(Go BuLLS!!Sorry, it's been 20 years...I'm loyal as F*) um...u get my drift... Dude... Wait, did u see that piercing glare in his eyes... The guy's got funnel vision right now and the only thing that's unrestricted is the basketball court.

Fouled in the process while double clutching in the air then finishing w/ a floater...Hubie Brown said it best, "LEGIT".ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME NOW!
In a nutshell: MOFO's FEELING IT!!! YAAAAAAH!!! I feel like singing...in the shower, in the rain, WHATEVER! DOESNT MATTER... DUDE...Jeremy, call me!?!?!?!? I wanna challenge u 1 on 1.
Taiwanese, Chinese, Asian AMERICAN, who the F* cares... Basketball SUPERSTAR... YES SIR!
Don't forget his defense. The charge he took and the boxout of Gasol. those plays should also be part of the highlights.
Did he call for the ball against a Kapono/mismatch in the Lakers game (I think Shumpert was late on giving it to him) and then he still took it to the hole ? Did he miss the bucket ? I don't see that on any highlights.
