713 - pretty darned good.I call Lin and Harden the "Hardliners".
"Hardliners" hardened up and ready to lin :)
Most Rockets fans would probably just call them Rush Hour Reloaded.

713 is cool but a bit esoteric. I believe most rocket fan sites and the media have already labeled them rush hour.
The Odd Couple
For the five lucky US fans hanging out with Lin later today, please keep the rest of us posted. Details, please. Thank you.https://www.google.com/+JeremyLin
713 is cool. I'll buy a t-shirt with 713 on it =)
Rush Hour 713
This Rush Hour-themed GIF with Harden and Lin is pretty funny and awesome.http://i1253.photobucket.com/albums/hh600/Rodman2124/beardsanity1.gif
713 BeardSanity Backcourt = The Beard + Linsanity
not too big on the area code thing...kind of excludes us that don't really live in houston but are just jeremy fans. something with his name is better.Beard Lin WinLin Beard WinLinsanibeard
"The HarLin Globetrotters."(I didn't come up with that. Just read it somewhere.)
Ladies and gentlemen, I have decided to publicly release my best backcourt names for free! Enjoy!"Asian Dragon With Beard""Super Backcourt""Mario and Luigi""James Lin""Jeremy Harden""Africa and Asia Union""Interracial Backcourt"
"Chocolate Lychee""Pokemon Masters""Harold and Kumar NBA""Oppa Houston Style"
"Revenge of the Nerds""Fried Chicken Wings""Backcourt Bloodz"
Chocolate Lychee !!!! hahhaha that actually sounds kind of yummy
sounds like an asian that loves him some abercrombie and fitch
Ugh, no wonder you're releasing them for free.
"The Stinky Tofu Duo""Double Dragon""Double Bubble Tea""Smilez and Southstar"
BTW good tweet of JLin being more active in practice.Daryl Morey @dmoreyVery happy w/@JLin7 & he keeps getting better-very active in practice 2day MT @sidmufc How happy are you with Jeremy Lin's production so far
be patient and be happy on the progress, @neph :)Chris Paul took 2 seasons in 2010-2011 to fully recover from his meniscus surgery.you don't want him to overdo it in the beginning and reinjure the knee after 25 games. Real haters will come out of the woods to say "I told you so".
Here's a couple I've thought of:harlinsdabomb713izforreal713FTWharlins4real
"African and Asian Mixed Race"
Coffee with soy milk.
Luckily, JLin and Harden's numbers are not 6 and 66 respectively. Otherwise, you'd get 666!And if you add in Omar Asik to Lin and Harden, you could use "Omar Lin Harden" as a nickname, which strangely enough sounds like "Osama Bin Laden." ;-)
I second omar lin harden. lol.
or Lin with Harden.
Nemo, surely there are aspects to draw from in addition to the racial element?Many Lin fans are tired of the media's preoccupation of Lin's race as opposed to his play, or offended by ignorant application of racial stereotypes; yet much of the suggestions you offered seem to fall in the same mold, reducing Lin/Harden to some racial caricature. I know it's all done in good spirit, I just thought we'd see more variety and creativity that's all.
agreed and well said. all in good spirit can easily and usually does turn annoying and racist.
It's racist if we CAN'T poke fun at ourselves or let others rib me. One of my best friends is a good ol' Southern redneck from Virginia (his self description). He calls me "Chinaman", which I thoroughly enjoy. I try to tell him that I'm a country hillbilly, especially since I live in the sticks. So when we gig together, we are the CHINABILLIES!!!
thats the problem, way too much tolerance on this poking fun stuff in regards to Asians. its no wonder an espn writer thought a headline story like that would be acceptable by the general public. and sadly it nearly was.
I hate these puns. Just call them Lin and Harden, the dynamic duo or something.
Like ABC Baller, I hate these puns. It is not my thing. I prefer to have a 3-0 record than a cool nickname.
I just have to settle for 3-1 after the nuggets game.
My proposed nickname for Lin and Harden: "Those Two Guys Who Play for the Rockets."It will be marketing gold! Guaranteed.
Off topic but anyone notice that when Lin makes a nice assist, the scorer rarely turns and points to Lin like common basketball etiquette dictates? I think this team actually doesn't seem to have a lot of fun together even when they are winning. Not a lot of smiles on good plays.
yeh, that was terrible...
Ball So HardLin
C'mon this one's so obvious...Beauty and the Beard LOLBut seriously, Linsanity and the Beard.

Haha, I've seen that on YouTube. It is hilarious. I like how there just happens to be a pommel horse in the middle of a third-world village.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPGUZxOCRcs
LOL! i remember seeing that clip in one of bill simmon's column on the olympics. freakin' hilarious - random pommel horse in the middle of nowhere.anyone remember bruce leroy?
Berry Gordy's "The Last Dragon" was one of my favorite movies of all time! Jeremy Lin could easily have starred in that movie. You could just imagine Bruce Leroy walking into a streetball park and getting DUNKED ON by Lin!!!
"The Dim Sum Duo""All-you-can-eat Chinese and Soul-food Buffet""The McHale Boys""Twin Cowboys"
Serious question...Who's going to buy these t-shirts you are selling? Are you trying to scam us all and take our money? Seems like this website has turned to the dark side in an attempt to take our money. Sad. Just sad.
good thing your terrible puns won't make the cut then
JLin does not like those puns, either.I like what ABC Baller suggested: just call them "Lin and Harden, the dynamic duo".
more trollIsn't there Carmelo site somewhere for you?
Harold and Kumar
"Harlin Globetrotters" and Rocketmen are my top two picks so far
These nicknames and puns are such gimmicks it reminds me of the new york media all over again with the "linsanity linsanity linsanity!" stuff. Why can't they just be known as jeremy lin and james harden and for their basketball skills?
Uh, because this is a Jeremy Lin fansite and we have the right to have a little harmless fun?
Just for us fans to have a few good laugh while waiting for the next Rox game. C'mon man, just laugh it off instead of making it an issue.

'just watched the google + hang out with JLin :)
From the Google + hang out video : Jeremy's rule to his friends : NO LIN PUNS!
BeardSanity is the best I think...Jeremy & Harden Show!J & H Duo
Jarden & Heremy! LOL
@ Nemo Network Media[saw the "halloween" thingy.]Remember how you felt about JLin when he was coming up, during Linsanity? THAT WAS REAL. IS REAL. Organic, not manipulated.[Here's Rushkoff talking about how JLin's emergence was 'Occupy'-like in its structure, the 99%. JLin's always been a Systems thinker, a de-centralizer, a distributor.]You're disillusioned by the commercialization. I know it looks like he's been co-opted by the mainstream. Please give it some time. Let's see how things turn out in Houston. His role is evolving, but he's still the SAME JLin, Nemo...
ViaThanks for the feedback and for providing some real conversation. Hoped you enjoyed the Halloween excerpt. There will be more to come if you are interested. :)Nemo

Maybe we should forget about the backcourt nickname. They don't play that well together so to combine their numbers is just odd at the moment. Jlin just gotta play his style of basketball and have fun. Be selfish and dominate. That's when it's really fun to watch.
