Is that properly translated? The bit about him struggling vs black players as a yellow skinned asian? Do they really talk that way?

Yeah, it seems he likes to stay out of the limelight in the US and turns down interviews. But when he's on his annual overseas trip, I guess he's kind of forced to do these interviews since he's under obligation to his corporate sponsors on the trip. At least it's subtitled.

It would be funny if the subtitles were totally not they were saying, cause it's clearly post-edited from the acutal station lol....

Jeremy Lin is like that loser kid that played tuba for the school band, then one day he got a leather jacket and everybody started to think he was cool. So he ditched his old loser band geek friends to hang out with the cool kids. It's only a matter of time the cool kids find out he's not that cool.

Oh now he's a trash because he's not a Knick anymore? How do players become suddenly better once they put on the Knick uniform and become scrub once they leave that uniform is beyond me.

homie would prbly say Shumpert was mediocore if we were to trade him. Honestly I just think he's going to shut alot of people up in 2 or 3 mths. From all the tapes I've been watching, he's improved his left, added muscle mass, has more better hops than he ever did in his career. I couldn't picture homie doing a 180 one handed dunk last season falling away from the rim, I saw this on a video from a chinese poster just this week. He's shooting no less than 78% from the perimeter on a jumper scale machine and learned more fallaway moves to keep himself from receiving major hacks from the NBA players. David Lee is out there training w/ him and he swears Jeremy gonna blow up next season.

Yo true story, let Jeremy drop 30+ on CP3 or Westy, Oh I'll be all in that thread gloating.

you know what i mean. If he wasnt of asian descent he wouldnt get the hype he is getting. he isnt even a top 10 pg in the league. I have him at like 15

The exact opposite happens my friend. Everyone that comes to the knicks underachieve and once they leave, they become better. I want Lin to succeed and there is seriously no reason for anyone to hate on the kid. He is just a prime example of how messed up the media can become. To my fellow knick fans, hes the same god damn player that everyone wanted to bow to when he played for us, so stop putting on a front

were agreeing here bra. lol

i didnt leave them out. i said i would even consider them over Lin.

Im saying for a guy whos not even top 10 or top 15 at his own position he gets way too much hype.

There were 5+ major factors that contributed to "Linsanity", his ethnic descent was only one of them. He was the perfect storm for media attention:

- Parlaying being a bench warmer on the verge of being cut (literally the next day) who was sleeping on Landry Fields couch to instant personal success on the court.

- Playing in New York in a year where expectations were sky high and they were already making all the headlines for their signings and still having their usual on court woes.

- Turning that personal success into instant team success and a big time winning streak (accompanied by game winners and some of the best stats a guard has ever put up in NBA history as a new starter) WITHOUT their two monster/headliner signings on the court.

- Being of Asian ethnicity.

- Being a 4 year graduate of Harvard.

- Absolutely revitalizing the Garden (aka the 'mecca of basketball') to an energy level we haven't seen since John Starks, Reggie and Spike Lee were running the show there.

You'd be ignorant to think the hype was simply due to the Asian-American factor. His story was a melting pot of media frenzy on many fronts.

09-01-2012, 07:37 PM
Smith n West, you remind me of the guys who think Tebow's media storm is simply due to the fact that he's an open Christian with your Lin Stance. It's so much more than that on both fronts.
