HoopsHype Jeremy Lin rumors

November 20, 2014 Updates

The Rockets played a video tribute to Lin on their much-prized giant scoreboard in the middle of the first quarter Wednesday night, finally recognizing the impact he had on their team. Earlier, James Harden went out of his way to call Lin "a warrior." The notion that there was some big conflict between Harden and Lin was long overblown, but the Rockets star acknowledging that Lin faces near constant criticism nevertheless means something. The fans in Toyota Center cheering loud for Lin means even more. The Lin Only Haters always stood out as an angry, vocal minority populated by plenty of bigots, but their actual numbers have never come close to matching their message board bite. CultureMap

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
