HoopsHype Jeremy Lin rumors

October 31, 2014 Updates

But only two games into an already trying Lakers’ season, Lin has encountered a new challenge. How to play with Kobe Bryant. “He’s used having to look over his shoulder all the time and playing with players who like controlling the ball a lot,” said Bryant, referring to New York’s Carmelo Anthony and Houston’s James Harden. “I told him, ‘That’s a big urban legend of me. I want to score. That means coming off of picks, catching and shooting. You handle the ball and you run the show.’” Los Angeles Daily News

“I have to do what I have to do sometimes if things aren’t working,” Bryant said. “I have to manufacture (scoring). But I’d much rather have him run the show. That’s what he’s good at doing. He’s good at getting into the lane and running it for other people. It’s a matter of him pulling the bull by the horns.” Los Angeles Daily News

The latest Laker to suffer a minor injury in Byron Scott's first training camp with the team is Jeremy Lin, who sprained his ankle in a scrimmage during Saturday's practice. "I think Robert Sacre kind of stepped on him when they were playing 5-on-5," said Scott. "Stepped on the ankle and just kind of turned him a little bit that way. So we'll see how (Lin) feels tomorrow." NBA.com

Jeremy Lin played 27 minutes in the Los Angeles Lakers 98-95 win over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night, the Lakers first preseason game of 2014. Lin had a rough shooting night (0-6), but excelled facilitating the offense and getting the ball down in the post, racking up 10 assists and committing just one turnover. After the game, Lin says he needs to do a better job of finishing and discusses what he hopes to capitalize on in training camp. “I just want to figure out how I can bring my strengths and apply it best to this system. It’s kind of like a chess match in learning and figuring it out. I think I’m more prepared for it just having gone through my time in Houston, and playing off the ball and learning different ways to try to be effective.” Lakers Nation
