Header contest! and Great Fit for JLin!

Our graphics person is away on vacation so we want to have a contest for a new temporary header for the site. We're going to have a new slogan "AllLin" to go along with JeremyLin.net. Please email us your designs through the contact button on the right. If there is not a clear cut stand out design, we'll put it up to a fan vote...


The Charlotte Hornets were definitely not on my radar and not a team that instantly excited me, but after a little research and thought, I'm very happy with this situation for JLin.

The biggest thing for Jeremy right now is playing time, and with the current roster, Jeremy should get at least 30 minutes per game. The Hornets currently don't have a true starting 2 guard. Jeremy could easily be the starting 2 and slide over to the 1 as needed. Even if he doesn't start at the 2, he should still get lots of playing time. Mo Williams was the backup pg and played over 30 mpg last season putting up 17 and 6. I'm confident that Jeremy will at least meet but likely exceed these numbers.

I also like the make up of the team in terms of attitude and ego's. I don't see Jeremy having to deal with guys not passing him the ball on the outlet or jealousy and pettiness that we've seen over the past 3 years. The new additions of Nicholas Batum and Frank Kaminsky bring high IQ, shooting and versatility to this team.

Here are some lineups I can envision:

Starters:

Kemba
JLin
Batum
Marvin Williams (Kaminsky possibly)
Big Al

Small ball:

Kemba
JLin
Batum
Marvin
Kaminsky

Big:

JLin
Batum
MKG
Kaminsky
Big Al

Shooters:

Kemba
JLin
Batum
Marvin Williams (poor man's Harrison Barnes)
Kaminsky

All Def:

JLin
MKG
Batum
Marvin Williams
Cody Zeller

I'm really excited about the versatility of the roster and I know that Jeremy is hungry and ready to show everyone what he can really do when given the chance and the backing by his coach, teammates, and organization. I can't wait! Let's go Hornets!


Jeremy's hops and 3 point shot are looking good:
