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!

“He’s working his [butt] off,” Redick said after Friday’s shootaround. “I understand that fans want to see his progress, but this is maybe going to a longer process than we all hoped for. He may be back on the court soon. I don’t know. That’s not my thing. “But I don’t get the coming in here every day to like watch him shoot pull-up jumpers. That’s a little obsessive.”
On his most recent episode of his podcast, however, he claims that was misunderstood. As noted, he did say he knew in his heart that dinosaurs were real – even if his explanation for why he thought they didn’t seemed pretty complex. From his recent podcast with friend of FTW T.J. McConnell: “This is the first podcast that I’ve actually recorded since the episode with Kyrie was put out … so I haven’t had the chance to really explain my stance on dinosaurs. I just want to be very clear about this: I do in fact believe that dinosaurs existed. I believe that dinosaurs fossils are reals. My intention with Kyrie, and I believe this was his intention as well, was just to talk about how we gather information in the digital age, where that information comes from, the abundance of that information and how that information can inform us and shape our beliefs and whether or not those beliefs are real are not is irrelevant because that information is out there and there are people that believe in that. I believe in dinosaurs.”
