McHale: "We lost Asik and JeremyLin and Chandler. All three guys had big roles on our team. Other guys have to fill in."
Is it a problem for the Warriors to take a flyer on Jeremy Lin because they think he will endear himself to their large Asian fanbase?
I believe Jeremy Lin and Rasheed Wallace had similar quotes about injuries when they were Knicks, and never suited up for them again.
It's also Jeremy Lin's 26th birthday today. The other half of the likely LAL starting backcourt is exactly 10 years Bryant's junior.
Happy bday to Jeremy Lin, Pat Garrity, Rik Smits, Darren Collison, Seth Curry, Tom Boerwinkle, Allan Bristow and my main man Sean Marks!
