Game on ESPN 7:30pm PT.
JLin will go off in this game. Mark my words.
Also, please realize that JLin has been treated this way or worse by every NBA team he has played for. I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter what team he is on. He just needs to be that much better than the next guy and keep producing over and over and over. Things haven't changed and won't change anytime soon. This is mainly because he is the first and only of his kind.
He is looked at differently by all involved and obviously it's hard for others, especially players and coaches, to take a back seat to an Asian American star/leader on your basketball team. This, I believe, is just human nature and not something overt or purposeful for the most part.
Make no mistake, Jeremy is like a modern day Jackie Robinson and Rocky Marciano rolled into one. He will continue to face obstacles thrown at him by his opponents as well as his own organization. Not to mention scorekeepers and refs. I now understand why John Stockton is the all time leader in steals and assists by such a wide margin. These stats are very subjective and I can't believe how many steals JLin has lost to this subjectivity. He also carries the pride and self respect of an entire race as did Marciano which is an unbearable load for most.
Lastly, JLin has much to improve on. I'm not saying that he is great at the moment. However, if Jimmer Freddette had come out and played like JLin, what would people by saying? How much rope would he have? People ask: What is his ceiling? Obviously, Linsanity is his lower ceiling. That was all-star, Hall of Fame level play. Eventually, we will get to see where that ceiling really is. We just may have to wait longer than we want.
