It's Yao's Fault

Pretty funny, now Spike's blaming Yao Ming for Jeremy leaving the Knicks! (15:48).




It's pretty amusing listening to all of these Knicks leaked excuses.

Anyway, training camp starts in 43 days on October 1st. I'll start this week to break down the current roster and let you know what I expect out of Jeremy and the Rockets this season.

    1. Again this clown is from New York. Every on from New York thinks its the best city in the world. They think that all players want to play in New York (Carmello, Fat felton ) even at a discount. (Jr smith)

      They think that a players can make money off the court becouse of endorsoments. (This is an old outdated idea) Lebron James made 33 million in Cleveland.

      Spike is just listening to what the knicks PR person told him. Remember Spike is not a regular fan like you and me he gets perks from the knicks becouse he is known to be the most famous knick fan.

      That is why he cant say Dolan is a fool. Look at what Chris Rock said. He said that if Lin was black no one would say a word about his contract or play.

      "They think that a players can make money off the court becouse of endorsoments. (This is an old outdated idea) Lebron James made 33 million in Cleveland."

      - Peyton Manning makes more commercial money playing in Indianapolis than Eli.

      Here's the world's 25 top athlete endorsers, none of them plays in NY.

    3. Agree. Chris Rock is known as a dary commedian mostly but I really like him. Hes not just funny as hell on stage but off stage he is also pretty courageous and straight forward. Just watch all his late night appearances and interviews. What he says is either funny as hell, wise or he simply keeps his mouth shut.

      Spike Lee is not half the man Chris Rock is. Spike Lee is a local phenomenon. His role in this is not the one of an independent person. He is not just a celeb who is a Knicks fan. He is a celeb partly because he is a Knicks fan - a lot of people dont understand that. He has to go with whatever is good for the Knicks (blaming it all on Lin).

      Im very disappointed of Spike Lee. I mean - is he a mind reader now? Does he run an intelligence agency or where does all this info about JLin/Yao/Rockets come from? Sometimes you can only stay a philosopher if you keep your mouth shut. Otherwise your outing yourself as an idiot. Well - point proven Spike!

    2. Every single attempt to copy asian movie hits have failed so far. I dont think Spike Lee is going to be an exception.

      Why not just watch the original ones? Asian people watch movies with exclusively caucasian actors all the time. They dont have a problem with it. Why doesnt the american market accept asian movies as they are? Americans like to talk about the melting pot and so on but there is still a lot of resentment. Yeah sure - a caucasian samurai in japan is fine. People watch that. But an asian male lead, a caucasian female lead and a romance between them? No way. BTW - I its a real movie - I just cant remember the name. It was quite a success in europe and asia...

      Delete
    3. And also - the movie I described was based upon a real life story (vietnamese man and french woman, daughter of a diplomat I believe during colonialisation).

      Delete
    4. I dont think so. I just googled the movie you mentioned. It was pretty successfull in europe, too. But the storyline is different to what I remember. Also - big Tony plays the lead character in it. Im a fan of big Tony so I would remember him.

      I believe that in the movie I mentioned the lead character was played by a Korean-American actor. I just cant remember the name. One is not getting younger you know :)

    5. If Tom Cruise faced me with that samurai sword, I'd cut him down and turn him into a California roll.

      Asians are not allowed to win in Hollywood's racist movies. They edited all of Bruce Lee's romantic scenes out of his Asian movies. And in that evil racist play "South Pacific", there is no way that ethnic tribal warriors like me would look up admiringly to any other race as our superiors.

      I've edited Hollywood out of my life.

    7. @KHuang:

      Well - thats Hollywood. I grew up in europe - in an area where there were hardly any other asians - so I have always dated caucasian girls.

      Cung Le the strikeforce champion has a caucasian wife. Bruce had a caucasian wife. I have a few asian buddies who are in mixed relationships. Generally you see a lot of mixed couples in Canada and California. Unfortunately Hollywood producers arent that progressive.

      I only know a handfull of asian actors who have appeared in romantic scenes with non asian girls:

      -Garrett Wang (chosen people magaz. 50 most beautyful people in the world).

      -Kal Penn

      -John Cho

      -Tony Leung

      -Sung Kang

      -Ken Leung

      -Tim Kang

      All asian guys should be portrayed like this (starting at 1:00)

      Whatever. I wonder when we will see JLin with a grilfriend. Any ideas what kind of girl he likes? I really dont like to see him with a Kardashian...

    8. @willydilly

      An Asian male friend of mine is happily married to a very beautiful European blonde. He isn't tall and has slanted eyes. A lot of Caucasian girls actually find Asian men charming.

      As for Jeremy, oh please, Kardashian isn't his cup of tea!

    10. Daniel Henney [Korean-American] plays opposite Eliza Coupe in Shanghai Calling.

      Godfrey Gao [Taiwanese-Canadian] had just been cast for the role of Magnus Bane [a gay wizard] in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. So I guess he'll play opposite a non-asian female & male character. Hmm...

  3. LOL - HELL NO HE DIDNT WANT TO STAY.... NOT FOR THE DAMN MINIMUM. What an effing idiot. You would think Spike Lee would know money a little better.

    Psssshhhhhh, go ahead blame Yao Ming, his friend. Not like anyone from the Knicks was showing love and trying to keep him. The Knicks had all that time to talk to Lin and be friends, pretend to be friends. Eff the Knicks.

    1. The Knicks could have offered Lin a contract in the first place. 2 years plus options for 10 millions or 3 to 4 years for around 20 millions, I bet Lin would have signed it. But they did not do it. Why? Because they never really wanted him (Woodsons system, Melo, Amare blabla). They would either try to get him cheap or let him run into a knife and use PR to blame it all on him what is what they did in the end.

      Thats why I wont stop repeating that they double/tripple crossed him. Fans (I mean normal fans and not extremist fans) can tolerate a lot - but at some point they gonna be fed up - especially when they have differnt local teams to choose from. Knicks better be good this year. Otherwise -> damnation!

  10. Spike Lee is just like all of the NY reporters who use Lin's name to sell their goods. We all know now that anything that has Lin's name on it will sell. It is very disappointing that Spike Lee is using Lin's name to get publicity for his new film.Spike Lee knows what is up, because if he really wanted to know the truth, he would have spoken to Lin himself. I have neer bought Spike Lee's act. I am African-American, and I was pretty disgusted with him when he published Zimmerman's address on twitter. I knew right then, who and what we were dealing with.

    6. Bruce Lee is NOT the first guy to come up with the guillotine choke or even the name for it.

      Jigoro Kano's original Judo textbook features the guillotine choke, arm bar, leg lock, and other moves that Carlson Gracie learned in a very pure form from Mitsuyoshi Maeda in Brazil in the early 20th century.

      Besides, it is very easy to break a guillotine choke when the so called "no holds barred" rules are not being applied. Simply grab one of the choker's fingers that is being applied to the top of your head using your fist. Tear it off and hopefully you break or dislocate your opponent's fingers. This is one of the many "illegal" moves that traditional kung fu does that MMA bans.

  12. At Webby Award, Lee called JLin "my man".

    If he really likes the kid, and appreciates what JL did for NYK, he would have done some research and googling on his own, instead of blindly believing the lies and propaganda spread by NYK.

    Obviously, he is not as intelligent as we thought.

Do some shopping, see, be seen, have fun. But noone with a working brain would choose to live in NY. After all - what does it stand for?

  13. Is blaming Yao Ming for JLin's departure the latest talking point/alibi that New York is peddling?

    I heard Stephen A. Smith insinuate this excuse a while back on BSPN.

    Now Spike Lee is trying his hardest to become the Stephen A. Smith of movies--a loud mouth, ill-informed jackass who stirs the pot with his idiotic comments in order to promote himself.

    Pathetic.

    To repeat for the trillionth time, if New York wanted Lin back, they could have matched the Houston offer. Period.

    New York could have gotten around the "poison pill" in Houston's offer by using the Stretch Provision in the CBA whereby they cut Lin after 2 years and spread out the luxury tax hit over several seasons.

    But it's not a secret that CAA (Creative Artist Agency) clients in NY like Carmelo Anthony, JR Smith, and others didn't exactly like JLin.

    JLin just didn't fit in to the CAA Knicks dysfunctional "family."

Blaming Lin for not wanting to stay.....of course not the knicks din give him a contract....fear for being cut for many time that is the only option n he sign it.......spike should get his fact right. Its so cool to see Tony D. On the same team as JLin maybe he will play better then i NYC. JLin make people around him better....its a fact look at Novak n chandler they look great in the short stretch. Lets go Rockets!!!!!!!! Imagine if they can bring in Lebron : )

  17. So I did a little research.

    Guess which agency just so happens to represent Spike Lee?

    CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY.

    Seems like Spike dumped William Morris agency for CAA in 2010.

    Spike Lee Leaves WME for CAA
    http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/caa-lands-spike-lee/

    This is the same Creative Artists Agency (CAA) that has its tentacles in the New York Knicks with CAA clients like Melo, JR Smith, his brother Chris Smith, Ronnie Brewer, head coach Mike Woodson, Knicks regime officials like Allan Houston and Mark Warkentien, and even Madison Square Garden.

    The same CAA that some say was a hidden factor behind the departure of JLin and even had a hand in the Knicks making Woodson head coach without considering Phil Jackson.

    Is CAA a Reason To Quit on the Knicks?

    So now, Spike Lee--who by wild coincidence happens to be a CAA client--pops up pushing some ridiculous line about how Yao Ming (and not Mike Dolan or CAA) was responsible for JLin signing with Houston.

    Welcome to the the CAA Knicks.

    You can't make this sh*t up.

    In the end, it seems the cynics weren't cynical enough about the cozy corporate connections that dominate the New York Knicks, NBA, or American sports/entertainment industry.

  19. Lol...I think Spike is as lost as the rest of NYC lookin' for an answer, and theorycrafting like everybody else. JLin leaving cause of Yao Ming as a possible reason has been around (btw I'd wager Yao probably DID pitch Rockets to JLin at some point, but that's par for the course, we all know ultimately Knicks screwed themselves on this one), I don't think this is Knicks PR, I'm sure he would have loved to see JLin stay a Knick, Spike is just filling in the blanks with something that makes sense to him.

    I do agree with him on the dream team tho, I'm sorry but Ewing/Robinson > Chandler/Davis...Heck I'd take Ewing and/or Robinson over D12 any day as well :D

  20. Now you know who your true friends are Jeremy. Just remember your best friends can be your worst enemies and vice versa. Spike Lee was just using Jeremy to gain more public attentions. Spike can be a NY die hard fan for the rest of his life but good luck with hoping to win a championship title. I'd consider Landry Fields a good friend who is still rooting for Jeremy regardless wherever he plays. Now let history tells the rest of the story.
