Hanging Out With Jeremy

  1. Oh that teacher knows what she is talking about. Id kill for a good bowl of pho. Wonder if JLin ever tried. Pho restaurants in Cali are real melting pots. Asian people, afro americans, latinos and even white folks all sitting around, slurping out of their bowls :) hmmmm delicious!

    2. true, pho is the modern day peace pipe. You get so comfortable and sleepy after eating it that you don't have the energy to fight anymore... lol

    3. yeah and it's all the msg that makes you all tired and loopy. hahha

    4. I think that a lot of non vietnamese folks know pho because of Anthony Bourdain (no reservations). He ate pho on several occasions (on his show). One time he said:

      "Honestly Id jerk a - like a rusty butter knife across my best friends throat - just for this (pho)..."

      @fighton1999:
      Japanese, chinese and vietnamese people eat MSG all the time and still manage to work 12 hours a day. If youre lazy -> say so. Dont blame the MSG :)

      There are people who claim to be msg sensitive. They say it makes them feel bad. However - these people only seem to feel bad when they eat asian food. They dont seem to have problems with tomatoes, parmesan cheese, mushrooms or any kind of food that has a lot of proteins which is funny - cause all that stuff contains a lot of MSG by nature. These people also dont seem to have problems when the pop a whole box of pringles chips (contains MSG).

      There was a test conducted by Tarasoff und Kelly in 1993. 71 people were given MSG. Only one person claimed to feel bad. That person claimed to be MSG sensitive. However - that person was not really given MSG. That person was given a placebo...

    5. my mom uses mgs so i'm used to it.. just makes me really thirsty afterwards. but i'm also not gonna pretend that it's good and natural. anyway.. it does make food taste better and that's all it counts. haha.

      and i no longer eat msg but am still tired after lunch so yeah i'm a lazy ass, aint' gonna lie. :)

    6. :) Thanks for being honest about it. I dont put MSG in my food either. I just use more bones and meat to get the taste I need in my soup and so do good restaurant chefs. If you dont like MSG - call the pho restaurant and ask them whether they are using MSG before you go there.

      Im not saying MSG is good. Im not saying it does not effect you when you eat too much of it. But - keep in mind - an overdose of salt, vitamin c or coke can kill you as well. MSG thats being put in the food is being produced in factories - but MSG also occurs in nature. Like I wrote above - parmesan cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, protein rich food...

  2. The Nuggets just played yesterday so I expect the Rockets to take advantage of this opportunity. This game is a MUST WIN game for the Rockets.

    I expect no less than a 20+ and 8+ game from Jeremy.

    Rockets by 14

    1. The Nuggets are also a very deep veteran team who's bench is almost as good as their starters. They will not be tired at all for this game, they never give their starters 40 minutes a game.

    2. The Rockets didn't play for several days.

      NO EXCUSES ANYMORE

  3. Andrew Bynum to the Rox, is it a possibility? What's everyone's take on this?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I originally was like "No way", but then I completely did a 180 degree turn.

      Bynum is a terrific player. He's one of the NBA's true "battleships" in the low post on both ends of the court. He's also injured A LOT, which is my sole concern. His legs are fragile and would probably have him missing 20 or more games a season.

      On the other hand, the Rockets have something that very few NBA teams have: a high quality affordable backup center behind Bynum already under contract. Omer Asik would provide quality minutes behind Bynum and also play beside Bynum in a Twin Towers lineup. Asik's presence drastically reduces the wear and tear on Bynum.

      Bynum provides a lot of the same positives that Yao Ming does. Just as Dikembe Mutombo provided excellent quality minutes behind Yao Ming (that 22 game winning streak happened when Mutombo was starting with Yao injured), Asik would cover for Bynum. I don't even think Asik would even play less minutes if Bynum was healthy.

      With Bynum, the Rockets can match up against "battleship" teams like the Lakers, Spurs, and Thunder. I'd get Bynum if I could because Asik is there!

    2. Has potential but:

      1. Broken commodity = He's already injured again
      2. Has Jeremy Lamb syndrome = Lazy
      3. Poor Mobility = Poor Pick n roll defense
      4. Inconsistency

      Delete
    3. Twin Tower of Asik and Bynum = SLOW

      They need Lamarcus Aldridge / Paul Millsap / Kevin Love

      Please no Josh Smith ; Way overrated and low bball IQ

    4. @neph

      5. Poor attitude. that was his biggest knock as a laker and being in LA i concur. just a big immature kid and I see no sign of things turning for the better.

    5. 6. FAT
      7. Poor Basketball IQ (will suddenly shoot threes)
      8. cannot be coached
      9. Invisible in the playoffs

    6. I'm SICK of reading neph's haterade.

      He has the right to disrespect NBA players here and us Lin fans too, and we have the right to dislike his unending flames.

      Delete
    7. Ok Neph, so you don't really like the guy. Got it. But you all were dead right about Bynum. The talent's there but the attitude for the game and his health weren't.

      Delete
    8. Bynum played alongside the NBA's biggest ballhog in Kobe Bryant.

      When games were on the line, Bryant would hog the ball (his 4th quarter struggled were documented by truehoop) and Bynum would be wide open.

      Many players don't get along with Kobe Bryant. Andrew Bynum is one of those players, and for good reason. It's unfair that a hardworking pro like Bynum gets labeled as lazy by people who don't know how hard NBA players work.

  4. Will Andrew Bynum join Jeremy Lin and James Harden ?

  5. 6. Jeremy Lin's off-ball defense.

    The early knocks on Lin's defense centered around his alleged lack of quickness and inability to stay in front of opposing point guards. But the larger issues might be off the ball, where Lin is vulnerable to smart back-cuts because of his tendencies to ball-watch and bait opponents into passing to his man as if he were an NFL cornerback with closing speed.

    _______________

    I'd have to say I agree. Lin is supposed to be a better off-ball defender, but he loses sight of his man way to much and often over-helps. Why hasn't anyone pointed this out to him, if it hasn't been done already?

    1. Agree, he tends to gamble too much

      Delete
    2. I disagree. He's one of the best off-ball defenders of the NBA.

      No one in the NBA can 100% be efficient in defending their opponent. Even Micheal Jordan got beat by his man.

    3. Etymology, don't fall for the Linflammations.

      You're being baited here. These guys are trying to START A FLAME WAR AGAIN.

      This topic was supposed to be a harmless post on Lin conversing with some fans, but it's been hijacked by the haters.

    4. @TVN..lovin it. You make a statement without any concrete evidence or empirical data to back it up. In other words, you speak fluff. I know you intentionally ignore me, and yet I don't care - a non-response is a response in itself. I'll keep responding back to you :). Great posts...need my laugh for the day.

  6. Thank you for posting the video. Much appreciated.

  7. Why doesn't anyone talk about Brandon Knight's & Kemba Walker's game? They are busts! But why are they still the starting point guards for their team? They are not even close to Jeremy Lin level.

    Brandon Knight was top 5 draft pick of 2011 UGH!!!

    1. "Why doesn't anyone talk about Brandon Knight's & Kemba Walker's game? "

      - Why should we? They're not good

      "why are they still the starting point guards for their team?"
      - Because they have no one better


      Who said those point guards are on Jeremy Lin's level ?


      You are stressing yourself over point guards that are average at best. Also, they won't be the last lottery picks that will be BUSTS or will show no star potential. It will always happen.

      Delete
    2. My point is it should not "always" happen.

      I'm not stressing about them. I'm proving a point that below average point guards should not be starters in the NBA and should receive the most criticism about their game.

      There's a lot of point guards that are good that they can pick up that's not currently playing in the NBA, but they choose to try to develop below average guards just because they came from prestigious Universities like Kentucky & UCONN.

      Delete
    3. "I'm proving a point that below average point guards should not be starters in the NBA"

      - If they continue to suck, I doubt their respective teams would continue to start them. As of now, they are still developing them to check if they have the potential to be good.

      "should receive the most criticism about their game"
      - Wrong. Because guys with no future in the NBA will eventually be forgotten and ignored. Would you criticize Sebastian Telfair? Never

      I agree in your last paragraph but what can we do? That is the NBA way. If teams rather draft non all-star pgs then let them; that is their franchise anyways.

    4. Etymology, don't fall for neph's trap.

      Like I said above, he's trying to get you to get angry so that he can make fun of you by flaming Lin in the process.

      Unfortunately, he has hijacked this thread. Hate is is message.

      Let it go and don't bother trying to respond to him. He's trying to TAKE US ALL DOWN.

      Delete
    5. no one talks about mediocre players, politics, artists, etc. and neph is right about that. why should we talk about those players? i rather spend my time praising jeremy than criticizing other players i don't really care for

      Delete
    6. @nando

      Obviously you're missing the point. It's because of players like Brandon Knight & Kemba Walker that the Jeremy's are not recruited & go un-drafted. If these below average players who are overrated and were the top 5 draft picks keeps on happening and no one talks about it, then YES it will keep on happening and players who actually have the NBA level skills are overlooked and forgotten.

      I know I should have posted this on another thread, but I was looking at all starting point guards in the NBA, and I just couldn't help but complain about some of these overrated & top 5 draft picked point guards.

  8. Great! thanks for posting the video!!
    why don't you guys just enjoy this video and stop arguing? whatever "hate" you guys mention here!
