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.
