  1. Just want to say that JLinfan#1 is probably running the best Jeremy Lin site ever, even better than Lin's official site. Really appreciate your hard work for so many years. Reading the old posts is really like getting to experience the ups and downs of Lin's career all over again. Also much respect to your bball insight. I think we all like to hear more of it!

    4. Really? It's a credit to the founder of this site and many contributors that even Lin read here. But I bet and hope he doesn't read anymore. He just needs to do the work and should not care so much what people think of him whether it's praise or criticism. He still might hear a lot from his twitter though. BTW does he have someone to filter the twitter comments for him? Can't imagine how many messages he receives every one of these days. Haha.

    8. Not at all! You guys have as strong perseverance as Lin! Never gave him up even when he's down. These several years must be like going through the ups and downs with him. That breakthrough was not only a huge relief for Lin but for those of his fans from the very beginning too.

      Are you one of his teammates in Harvard?
      Do you know him personally?
      Were you also a student in Harvard during Lin's college time?
      Were you one of the opposing team's fans that witness Jeremy destroying your team (LOL) ?

      I know I have a lot of questions but I really want to know. Because I didn't even know he existed before that Lakers game. The first time I saw him in the highlights I thought he was a rookie. Like I said I never really follow the Knicks so I was so late with any news about him.

    13. Hear, Hear! Thank you @JLinfan#1 for all the hard work and great insights on what to look out for Jeremy's games. I still remember the time when Jeremy barely got playing time, you were on point to nudge Coach Smart to give more time to build confidence after he played well even if it didn't happen. Those were the lean years :)

  4. You guys see the newest "NEXT J LIN" article?

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1311815-why-penns-zack-rosen-is-the-next-jeremy-lin


    It's great they are trying to find talented over looked players, but I think it's another article that is just gone fishing.

    This Rosen kid is 3.25 inches shorter than Lin with a wingspan 4 inches shorter than Lin. Rosen measured a 30 inch vertical. I can't find Lin vertical numbers, but he can dunk 2 handed with ease, and beat out John Wall -40/43 inch vert- on a jump ball. I would figure Lin would measure out around 36 inches, possibly more with the extra training he has had. Plus, I don't see any clips of Rosen grabbing boards over 4s and 5s.

    The article acknowledges Rosen is not as quick, athletic, or drive capable as Lin (and I watched some highlights). The author thinks Lin developed his driving attributes, athleticism, explosiveness after college so Rosen will too...... and that Rosens shooting capability will make up for it. UHHH LOL?

    I wish that kid the best.

    Two things that are hardest to teach:

    Functional Size
    Athleticism/Explosiveness

    One thing that is easiest to learn and improve and be successful at:

    Shooting




    Sorry Rosen, I don't expect him to go off like Lin. Given the right team though, he could be a solid contributor. That goes for most any prospect though.

    8. Does he jump higher than Wall or at least near that level? Its really hard to see in the game since he doesn't really like to jump as high as he could when he's playing. So I was just curious in his vertical leap.

      Thanks anyways!

    10. I can't imagine Jeremy Lin beating out John Wall in a slam dunk or leaping contest.

      On the other hand, Jeremy Lin is every bit as quick as Wall and appears taller to me. Whatever, they are two of the best athletes of the true point guards in the NBA.

      A guy like Iman Shumpert likely has both Wall and Lin beat in speed and leaping, but he doesn't have the innate basketball talent than Lin or Wall have.

      For the most part, I view Jeremy Lin and John Wall as equals physically and even skill wise. John Wall would look a lot better if he had better teammates and better coaching. Keep in mind that Wall would be entering his senior year of college next season, so he is far from peaked out as a player.

      Delete
    11. Shumpert is very athletic and strong. He's also a very good defender. However, his offensive skill sets are pretty raw or mediocre. Like what KHuang said, he's basketball skills are not really "natural".

    12. AVERAGE SPEED

      TOP SPEED
      Wall: 19.30 mph
      Lin: 18.85 mph

      JLin is 1/2 inch taller than Wall.

      He had the 3rd longest wingspan (6’5″) of any other point guard his height

    13. Can't forget Westbrook and Rose as the most athletic PG's in the league.

      Check out Westbrook.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ga7Hz8RztXI

      I don't recall any PG's that can do this in recent years since Steve Francis, where he drives, jump stops and takes off over the top of a 7 footer.

      Delete
    14. I think Rose tested out as being slower than Lin and Wall. I would imagine so does Westbrook.

      Of course, physical attributes are of no importance if a player doesn't have game to go behind it.

      Having game without body can get a guy into the NBA as a end of bench player with wildly inconsistent production. Having a body without game keeps a guy out of the NBA altogether. Having a body AND game is a NBA requirement, and then it's just a question of HOW MUCH body!

      Jeremy Lin has body AND game, "despite" his Asian skin coloring!

      Overall Bam - JLin most comparable to Rose. Irving & Wall have the advantage of vertical jump & leg strength.

      JLin's superior acceleration & comparable speed puts him at par with the most athletic NBA pt guards in terms of penetration & fast breaks [w/ the lone exception of finishing with dunks.]

      Delete
    17. I think Lin has more skill than wall. Lin has a higher basketball IQ, Better passer and a Better shooter. Wall has the advantage of jumping higher and having more length.

      Delete
    18. Here's Lin out jumping John Wall in a jump ball. Lin was clever in timing his jump with a one step, but that only adds a couple inches to your vertical. On the other hand, John Wall's wing span is 6'9", so he has at least a couple inches reach advantage on Lin:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whVEiYap1F4&feature=player_detailpage#t=334s

      Now, this is a standing (or one-step) vertical. John Wall almost certainly has a 2-4 inch advantage on running, two-footed vertical so he'll be able to do some spectacular dunks. Overall, Lin's faster first step gives him the advantage athletically in my opinion.

      Delete
    19. The guys like Westbrook and Rose tend to rely on their raw athleticism more than other skills. Lin is not a freak athlete by NBA standards.

      I think Lin is uber effective because he has a great blend of skills to be a great player. Very good athleticism, great timing, anticipation, hands, high IQ, very good passing and great finishing ability.

    3. Before Linsanity, probably yes because he seemed the type to like to surf on the internet and read what people talked about him (not a good habit, but I would do the same too if I were him, haha). You could read his twitter, before, he even retweeted his fans occasionally. But after, all disappeared. I remember I read an article that his Harvard former teammate saying that Lin received over 300 texts after his 1st start. Those were just texts. Phone calls, emails, tweets... no more time to read here lol.

    4. He's probably got his team to gauge public and fan sentiment for him.

      And perhaps his younger bro, since would be naturally interested JLin news and college kids tend to have a lot of free time to, among other things, surf the net.

    1. I gotta see his shot in game against actual nba competition.... The way lins people made it seem before..... He was already shooting pretty high percentage if I recall in drills.


      Anyone remember "catch the ghost?" and "460!".


      I'm sure it has improved, but until I see him do it versus real competition, not gonna get giddy on it.

      Delete
    2. I wonder what would be his ranking this season.

      Those percentages sound good but it is different in game situations.

      Delete
    3. I think last summer Lin was "only" shooting 71% in practice: "On one occasion, Lin made 17 3-pointers but lost 21-17, then kicked the ball in anger, Scheppler recalled with a chuckle. He refused to stop until he beat the ghost. It took 14 games. When Scheppler tallied up all of the scores for the day, Lin had converted 71 percent of his shots from the arc." (Link)

      By the way, what is "460"?

      Delete
    4. @Aids Bike

      Actually its 467; its his ESPN ranking at the start of last season

      Delete
    5. If Lin can shoot around 38-40% from 3s, it would be easier for him and his body. It will also make him more difficult to defend.

      I'm pretty sure early in the season, his defenders will dare him to shoot by going under the screen. So hitting 3s and mid range shots will be very helpful for him and his team.

      Delete
    6. Hmm, neph. Good observation.

      I would figure that opponents would blitz Lin off screens, sending two defenders at him while rotating a defender off the ball into the lane if Lin beats the trap.

      The goal would be for opponents to make guys like Royce White and Omer Asik beat them on offense instead of Lin. It's the reverse strategy of what opponents do with Rajon Rondo - let Rondo shoot and make sure Allen and Garnett and Pierce don't take shots.

      Opponents already tried the "let Lin shoot, go under the screen" thing. He roasted them by scoring and dishing off to teammates for easy scores. Then teams figured out that Lin had to be the primary focus to guard against even if Anthony and Stoudemire were on the floor. Hence the doubles and triples.

      Now if Lin suddenly loses his touch, the opponents will back off. If Lin's teammates aggressively score the ball when Lin is doubled, that would reduce Lin's defensive coverage.

      For those reasons, I am expecting a season long diet of double and triple teams and other crazy defensive schemes designed to get the ball out of Lin's hands and make anybody else on the Rockets win games if possible.

      Delete
    7. Like what I've said, the key is to hit those outside shots. I think he's a pretty consistent mid range shooter. Its his 3pt shooting that teams will try to test. If he hits his jumpers, it will suck the defense away from his teammates.

      Delete
    8. That's a pretty accurate prediction. Teams are going to start hedging and jamming him off the high PnR once he begins to roast defenders early in the season. CAN'T WAIT!

      Delete
    9. I do agree that a consistent three pointer will allow him to be even more effective and maybe also save his body if the result is that he drives less.

      JLin should aim to drain open 3 pointers, but isn't 38-40% quite a bit high?

      I also think JLin can still be quite effective even without shooting a high percentage three point shot.

      If a defender goes under the screen and JLin does not hit his open 3 pointers with the defender perhaps a half a step away farther than he should be, the extra space would allow JLin to build up a head of steam driving to the basket for a floater or maneuvering to the open spot on the floor for the mid-range jumper off the dribble.

      Parker's play comes into mind, since my impression si that Parker doesn't have a consistent off the pick three pointer and many defenders also go under the screen guarding Parker.

      Delete
    10. More consistent 3-pt shooting will definitely help to create more space to blow by defenders and either drive to the basket, pass or shoot floaters or mid-ranger jumpers.

      What is more concerning for me is who will be a backup PG or playmakers who can relieve pressure from Jeremy? With all the youngsters in Houston, teams know the focal point of offense is Jeremy so they will pressure him from the time he brings up the ball so he'll be tired on offense. In NY sometimes Melo brings up the ball and initiated offense as a point forward.

      Perhaps Toney Douglas will be the backup PG to relieve some pressure from Jeremy? Royce White is still a rookie so they shouldn't count on him too much.

      Delete
    11. Toney Douglas is really a tragic figure. Last season was really not his season. He should have played so much better. I certainly hope that he can start all over in Houston and play that role youre talking about. Whether he is able to - well have to wait and see.

      Delete
    12. Also - I wonder about Doc Scheppler. What people say about him is really amazing. Im really excited to see JLin play - see whats different.

      Better shooting percentage means more confidence, going to the basket less, means less contact, means less weariness, means even more energy throughout the game.

      Im glad to see that the JLin connection is getting some fame to. Somehow they deserve it. Scheppler used to coach Diepenbrock, Diepenbrock used to coach JLin, now Scheppler is coaching JLin. Somehow things go full circle :)

      Delete
    13. People go under Parker on the screen because Tim Duncan will pick defenses apart if he gets the ball.

      Duncan will get that ball in the high post pivot and survey the court. At his height, he can pass over the top of any defense to anywhere on the court. He also has a deadly outside jumper if defenders sag off him, and there is not a defender in his entire career that has been able to stop him in the post. No team has ever stopped or even slowed Tim Duncan when he gets the ball in the high post. Thus Parker is usually left unguarded in the Spurs pick and roll.

      Unlike Tony Parker, Jeremy Lin doesn't have Tim Duncan. Lin will have a motley assortment of young big men who lack Duncan's scoring and passing abilities. Therefore teams will go over the top to defend Lin. At least that's the way I see it.

      Delete
    14. I'm thinking Houston needs one great big man and one solid backup PG to prevent teams to triple-team Jeremy and make him overly tired on defense. They have some good shooters in Parsons and Martin to create a lot of spacing. Hopefully Royce White can fill the role of the big man in 2-3 years.

      If there is any truth to the rumor on Clutchfans board to send Gary Neal to Houston for Patterson, Gary Neal could be a solid backup PG to create sparks off the bench.

    17. JLin's daily training when he was in Dongguan:

      At least 3 hrs daily training =
      45 mins - 1 hr in the gym to work on body strength.
      2 hrs shooting practice.


      Throughout this summer:

      Focused on working on his left hand, [using his left hand to dribble, penetrate & pass.]


      On his shooting practice:

      A lot of penetration, catch-&-shoot, fadeaway, jumpers from different spots & 1-on-1 with coach who used a baffle to simulate stronger physical contest.


      He lost some weight to lessen pressure on his knees, but he felt he has become much stronger & muscular in his upper limbs.

    18. I think, at first, teams are going to overplay Lin again. They are going to hedge him out left and double team. The "proven" strategy against him.

      Delete
    19. The funny thing is, in highlights from Lin's college days, Lin beat the big man hedging with guard going under by reversing and driving the other directions.... I wonder if this was easier to do in college. It seems like Lin reacted more naturally to PnR defences in college.

    1. Totally true.

      Nemo is one of the many Lin fans here who really knows NBA basketball.

      On the other hand, Lin last year would have been a fine addition to any NBA team that needed a PG - including the Warriors that released him because they thought Charles Jenkins was a better player!

      Certainly the Warriors fans would have not have booed Warriors owner Joe Lacob as viciously during Chris Mullin's retirement ceremony had Linsanity been taking place in Oakland.

  13. Jeremy Lin has something in Houston he never had in NY:

    Shooting guards that can actually dribble and score at an NBA starter level.

    Landry Fields is a fine small forward who dribbles and scores like a small forward, not a shooting guard. He does not have shooting guard instincts in that he can't curl, doesn't know how to use a screen, has no real perimeter game, and cannot beat faster 2 guards on dribble drives. Opponents knew this and doubled Lin with impunity when Fields was at the 2 guard.

    Iman Shumpert is the second coming of Michael Pietrus: fabulous body, matchless athleticism, so so defense (still got lit up), and nonexistent offensive ability or even potential. NY tried him every which way, but his NBA niche is as a defensive low usage player. Once again, not a player that could make teams pay for doubling Lin.

    Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, particularly Lamb, are totally different. Martin is one of the best shooting guards in the NBA and is a solid veteran who knows how to play. He alone will be a huge help to Jeremy Lin.

    Jeremy Lamb is an even more interesting prospect. He reminds me so much of former NBA All Star Latrell Sprewell with his creative instincts and explosive style of two way play. Unlike Kevin Martin who is strictly a scorer who looks for his own shots, Jeremy Lamb is just a "guard" who can excel at either guard position. Lamb absolutely can take pressure off Lin on both ends.

    Lin essentially played a 1-4 offense with the Knicks where he was the sole ball handler and passer. He WAS the Knicks backcourt last year, essentially playing both positions simultaneously. With Houston, Lin will thrive in more traditional 3-2 sets simply because of the additional ball handlers and perimeter scores.

    Replies
    1. Is Lamb a 3pt specialist? Does he move well without the ball?
      If he's excellent at doing those things, then definitely it will be an upgrade even if he's only rookie.

      I agree on Landry, he's not really good creating his own shots off the dribble; Same as Shumpert who is physically gifted but lacks offensive talent.

      Delete
    2. Yes, Lamb is a 3 pt specialist and moves extremely well without the ball. Think Richard Hamilton but with more strength and explosiveness.

      UCONN has historically produced many NBA quality shooting guards. Ray Allen said that one of the assistant coaches really taught him how to play the position. Jeremy Lamb learned his lessons well, and I don't regard Lamb as being any less a player than Ray Allen was coming out of college.

      Lamb fell in the draft because scouts felt he had a "sleepy look" that caused them to question his motor. Yet Lamb PRODUCES, and that's more important than anything else.

      I predict that Jeremy Lamb will be starting sometime next season, whether Kevin Martin is on the roster or not.

    3. Jeremy Lamb definitely moves well without the ball. He has moves like roaming on the baseline and coming off a screen and then receiving the ball near the elbow and either shooting a quick jumper or going to the basket in the middle. He can also play a little 2 men game with a big man like give and go. None of the Knicks players of past year could do those moves. I think Rip Hamiton is definitely a good comparison. Like Hamilton, he also appears to have nice handle although from a few highlights I watched, I am yet to see him pass the ball as well as Hamiton. He appears to be able to shoot off the dribble better than Hamiton though. I hope Lamb hit the weight room hard and get stronger in his upper body while still keeping his quickness. That will help him absorb contact while going to the basket and fight through screen both on offense and defense. I definitely see Lin and Lamb complement each other well in the backcourt.

    4. Lamb on one wing, Martin on the other.... Sprinkle in some delfino.

      Martin, if I recall, never stops moving on offense, without the ball.

      They could have a 1-2-3 combo averaging 50-60 pts a game..... Driving, bombing, dunking, and popping.

    5. I think the best thing about Lamb is that he's a versatile scorer. Be it spot up shooting, shooting on the move, catch and shoot, off the dribble, running on the break or driving to the basket. I hope McHale's offense will allow him to do all these, not just standing behind the 3 point line. The good thing is that McHale's offense seems to be simple and allows players to have freedom.

      BTW, KHuang's theory of Lamb being overlooked due to how he "looks" is interesting. It definitely seems like nba scouts care more about how a player fits into their mold of a prototypical nba star than how the player plays the game.

    7. Lamb's mediocre 3pt shooting % in college is a concern for me. He often has that big leg-kick, which throws off his long-range shooting form (Jeremy used to have this in college as well).

      That leg kick is fine for mid-range (he uses it to create space, IMO), but from NBA 3pt range, those inefficiencies in form will show up big time.

      That's why I want Kevin Martin in Houston for the year. Or at least through the trade deadline. Lamb needs to work on that shooting form...get rid of that leg-kick.

    1. I don't think so unless CCTV overlooked that part. I like the interview conpares to others done in the States. He totally let's his hair and his guard down and revealed a more down to earth and the 'real' side of him.

  15. Absolutely. That interview was deep. Did you guys see his parents cry? Anyone know what they were talking about when they were crying?

    1. Mama Lin: He loved to play bball so much, but he will say "I feel like I have to force myself today to practice." But he knows if he doesn't do this, there's no way to go forward & improve. [tears]

    2. Mama Lin cried over all the bad press and comments by even from friends about Lin true capability as a NBA player. The press insinuation of the NBA making Lin as a star as a money making machine in Asia/ Chine, replacing Yao Ming. His family is the one how Jeremy pain and all the negativity he received since playing bb and Mama Lin can't contain her emotion during the interview.
