I don't mean to preach, but, hype is hype, meaning it's never too much or out of control. The kid averages 25 plus points and 8 assist in his first three times playing meaningful minutes. That is just plain and simple something to be hyped about.

I don't see why Lin will fall off today. Fisher is guarding him and the last time I checked, he's got the foot speed of a slug. With that said the Lakers are healthy and the Knicks are not so I expect LA to win this one.

John Walls Era

I think it's cool, but if he were in Charlotte playing this well would anyone care? I mean, I think he's a fun player to watch, I just think it's ridiculous how hyped he has become after a few good games versus really bad teams. I mean, Wilbon (idiot) just compared him to Magic Johnson...no! NO!

Because Amar'e and Joe Johnson really struggled with a pass first PG in pheonix? If this is the real Jeremy Lin, Amar'e will be better than he's ever been on the Knicks. I hope 'Melo will make whatever adjustments he needs to, to win. It could be scary if they all buy in.

If I was Jeremy, I would sign a one year deal with the Knicks so that we get his bird rights. After that, we can pay him whatever he wants.

Why would he leave anyway? D'antoni's system is ideal for this guy. Any place else is a downgrade.

he went to harvard.. what player is drafted and actually plays in the NBA that went to harvard? they said people graduating from harvard have a better chance at becoming president of the united states than being an NBA player.

him being asian also has a huge factor. i've heard he was always picked on during games for being asian.

He was on the Laker's radar last year, but Golden State picked him up. He would've developed well with the Lakers I think, but whatever he's doing it seems to have worked out for him now and it's cool that he can star in NY.

Lakers are in disarray right now anyway, except as a big shiny showcase for Kobe's amazing superstardom and ability.

That's all the Lakers are right now, the Kobe show, and personally that suits me fine, I feel like the NBA playoffs have become like the presidential primaries or something, it's all about who they want to win and what calls the refs are gonna make.

It's actually more satisfying and fun to just sit back and not worry about the Lakers "have to win" the championship and all the pressure and all that. Like this year I know they won't win, and I'm actually enjoying the season much more, it is fun. You guys who support losing teams and are all considered with parity and all that just don't know how much pressure it is to ALWAYS have to win the title or your season is a failure. The stress is brutal.

It is so fun to just relax and watch Kobe play awesome and be able to appreciate the talent.

Keep amare and trade Melo. Amare with a great PG is like a blessing of the gods for him.

The knicks have no excuse to suck anymore
the core of lin, melo, amare, chandler and shumpert is more thaan enough. Now all they need is a coach.

i think they should trade either melo or amare though. package with baron davis and get some elite defenders. and a 6th man

Lin would fail so epically playing for the lakers. The only reason why Lin is doing well is because he has the ball in his hands. WIth kobe pounding the rock, he would never get a chance to create for anyone.

Early Bird exception

This is the lesser form of the Larry Bird Exception. Free agents who qualify for this exception are called "early qualifying veteran free agents," and qualify after playing two seasons without being waived or changing teams as a free agent. Using this exception, a team can re-sign its own free agent for either 175% of his salary the previous season, or the NBA's average salary, whichever is greater. Early Bird contracts must be for at least two seasons, but can last no longer than four seasons. If a team agrees to a trade that would make a player lose his Early Bird Rights, he has the power to veto the trade.

This is different thank the Larry Bird Exception. Also Larry Coon said because he was claimed before he actually cleared waivers his bird years "clock" did not reset

It was a waiver claim, so he didnít re-sign as a free agent. The league treats waiver claims as changing teams by assignment ó i.e., like a trade.

But, of the people Iíve talked to about it, nobody is 100% sure. You can interpret it either way, depending on how you read the CBA. I think this exact situation has never come up before, so the league may not have made a formal ruling on it yet. Iím still trying to get to the bottom of it.

with stern being a knick fan, i bet he will make something work.

with stern being a knick fan, i bet he will make something work.

Coon is off his rocker because it says in the cba that if you are waived your bird rights are removed. He was waived twice.

What team will give him 10 mill that doesn't have a PG?

We pay Jose Calderon 10 mill... or 8... close enough

can you donate it to my charity? I need beer money.

When he does donate, share some beer with me, man. I need it the way the Lakers are playing. :p

China has finally found a new guy to vote for in the all star game. Starting PG for the east forever!

ugh, seriously. He will get a $50 million dollar deal with Aquanet, and be an all star forever due to a billion votes.

Awesome.

we own his bird rights, we don't have to use the MLE on him, him and landry are both ours at w/e rate and it won't effect the MLE

No you don't and the most you can offer is 1mil sadly. You do how ever have the rights to fields.

So the first coach to play him is an idiot and the other coaches that cut him get a free pass, I don't understand....

I don't know if he was on other rosters THIS YEAR. I am saying if he was on the Knicks roster from the beginning of the season then he must have showed glance of brilliance in practice which went unnoticed by that ******.

This kid's the real deal. I freaking love it.

The 2011-2012 Seasons: The Year of The Hidden Gems in New York. First Victor Cruz, now Jeremy Lin. Gotta love it!

It's only been 4 games. Knicks fans are over-reacting

You're dumb. It's not just Knicks fans. It's fans from every team!

Do I really need to come to southern Asia and show you how to drink!
:p

btw, I competed against Indonesia's taichi and bagua teams, and every girl they had was knockout hot. And flexible. I want to move there. Like, literally I want to move to whatever location the female taichi teams lives at. I am not even picky. I will sleep on the floor if I can stretch you out.

Trolling over.

Lin is Taiwanese-American, Christian, and an NBA Point Guard. There isn't anything there that China likes or has made.

He probably has more in common with your neighbor than Yao.

Isn't there a time limit for a player to clear waivers?If they get picked up before that time it's like they were technically not waived.

Not on the Lin-wagon YET. I've said all season that Rubio has played only a small sample size, so i can't be inconsistent and praise Lin nonstop. Granted Rubio never did this, but we'll see. I know he can play, but I can't call him GOAT.

That's not true. While we don't have his bird rights, we can offer the full MLE, which is more than 1 million. Also you don't think that the Knicks will do whatever it takes to keep this guy no matter what.

My wushu coach for 5 years was the biggest korean nerd of all time, and he looked like my grandma could kick his ***. Yeah, not so much when he got upset. He crushed anyone.

Knicks front office should be concentrating on making room to sign this guy because some team is going to offer him a lot of money this summer.

All you guys saying this kid will come back to Earth or he can't keep up this level of play don't know a thing about basketball :facepalm:

Lin plays in the perfect system tailored for his skills and his performances thus far should prove that to you if nothing else. We can expect this level of play from this kid from here on out.
Your insane
