Number 7 and Number 13, "The 713"

Help us chose a catchy nickname for the Rockets incredible backcourt duo.

How amazing is it that their numbers combined is area code for H-Town??!!

Vote on our poll at the top right. We'll be using this on our inaugural JeremyLin.Net t-shirts!

  2. Most Rockets fans would probably just call them Rush Hour Reloaded.

    2. 713 is cool but a bit esoteric. I believe most rocket fan sites and the media have already labeled them rush hour.

  3. For the five lucky US fans hanging out with Lin later today, please keep the rest of us posted. Details, please. Thank you.

  7. 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.

      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".

  13. 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." ;-)

  14. 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.

    1. agreed and well said. all in good spirit can easily and usually does turn annoying and racist.

      Delete
    2. 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!!!

    3. 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.

  15. I hate these puns. Just call them Lin and Harden, the dynamic duo or something.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Like ABC Baller, I hate these puns. It is not my thing.

    I prefer to have a 3-0 record than a cool nickname.

    1. I just have to settle for 3-1 after the nuggets game.

  17. My proposed nickname for Lin and Harden: "Those Two Guys Who Play for the Rockets."

    It will be marketing gold! Guaranteed.

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.

    3. 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!!!

  24. 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.

  25. JLin does not like those puns, either.
    I like what ABC Baller suggested: just call them "Lin and Harden, the dynamic duo".

  28. 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?

    1. Uh, because this is a Jeremy Lin fansite and we have the right to have a little harmless fun?

  34. @ 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...

  37. 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.
