Jeremy Lin‏: Wanted to address this… I spoke with JJ today on the phone for a long time. I truly believe he didn’t say a racial slur and that he has a great deal of respect towards Chinese people. I also reached out to Adam Silver and David Shoemaker. Everyone knows that this word should never be used in referring to Chinese people and everyone is committed to Chinese fans being treated with the equality and respect that they deserve. Being Chinese is so important to me and I will do everything I can to work with the NBA to help continue teach fans about the depth and beauty of Chinese culture and the importance of China to basketball culture. To the fans, I encourage you to not use hateful language towards the NBA and JJ. Hope everyone continues to have a Happy Chinese New Year!

Nets officials have noted repeatedly over the last several months that Tsai, like Prokhorov, has bought into Marks long-term rebuild. In November, during a short back-and-forth between him and Bill Walton in Huangzhou, Tsai told the Hall of Famer that he expects his ownership to be “an interesting journey” and “a long-term project.” He also described Jeremy Lin, a Taiwanese-American, as his “favorite player.”
In Brooklyn’s first game of the year, Jeremy Lin’s season ended with a ruptured patella tendon. Then, D’Angelo Russell had knee surgery and missed a little more than two months, paving the way for Dinwiddie to have the keys to the offense as the starting point guard. “It’s wild,” Dinwiddie said. “My situation is similar to Jeremy’s, actually. Injuries had to pave the way for Linsanity. I think that’s the story of a lot of non-lottery pick guys. For them to have that opportunity, usually someone has to get hurt because you’re not going to promise a spot to somebody who is not of that pedigree or doesn’t have that whatever it is. There’s always a pecking order.”
Zach Lowe: One little wrinkle about who the Cavs chased with their first round pick. The Cavs had talks with the Nets about Spencer Dinwiddie. Like … would the Nets take our pick for Dinwiddie. The Nets wanted a LOT for Dinwiddie. I love the thinking though. A) Dinwiddie has been pretty good, fills a need and B) take him off the Nets and what does that do for the Nets’ pick that we own. Thats a fun one. A fun one. Brian Windhorst: In terms of Nets business, what about Jeremy Lin picking up his contract for next year … yesterday. ZL: Hey, why waste time? BW: We all knew he was picking it up. It’s funny, he’s ‘FYI, I’m picking it up.’
