"Let me be great!!"
Deep breath. Word is Blake Griffin us fine. He only withdrew from USA camp so he'd be 100 % next season
Blake: "I want to focus and dedicate 100 percent of my energy on improving and preparing for the upcoming season with the Clippers."
Blake Griffin announces that he will not participate on the USA Basketball Men’s National Team this summer.
Another day, another rumor.
We dont mess around...gotta stay game ready lollll http://t.co/KC3Pnp2YxD
Lin said the key breakthrough for him mentally is being pressure-free: "I’m not trying to recreate a Linsanity."
Lin said he learned to love game from his dad, whose favorite player is Kareem Abdul Jabbar. So there's a Lakers history there.
Lin's hope going forward is to maintain his relentless "attack mode" but also keep control in doing so like Chris Paul and Tony Parker.
Lin on Lakers not having a coach: "Me and my trainer have our goals....right now, it doesnt affect it as much.
Jeremy Lin said there's a YouTube video out there with him and Steve Nash. There's a time waster for you Lakers fans at work to go look up
Lin: "I definitely enjoyed the perks (of Linsanity)." He mentions GQ cover shoot. But didnt like lack of privacy.
Jeremy Lin: "I feel I have the least amount of pressure on my shoulders than I ever have." Has reached a peace with his NBA standing.
"Always support through the ups and downs the support of the Asian community." Lin will have that in L.A.
Lin said he's not trying to recreate "Linsanity". Im not trying to be the phenomenon I was in New York. Im just trying to be myself."
Jeremy Lin: "I'm not trying to recreate 'Linsanity.' I'm not trying to be the phenomenon I was in New York. I'm just trying to be myself"
Lin on Nash: "When you consider players who have made the most with what they have, he has to be at the top or near the top of the list"
"I can't wait" Lin said of playing with Steve Nash.
On pic of Melo wearing his No. 7 Rockets jersey: "I wasnt outraged. I just felt like maybe they could have kept it internal."
Lin on HOU showing Carmelo images in his jersey: "I just felt like maybe they could have kept it internal. But it wasn't a big thing to me."
Came into the D-League wearing No. 17.
Why No. 17? Couple reasons...I like No. 7. It has a lot of meaning but X has No. 7
Lin: "Im excited to learn from him (Kobe)." Says they have texted each other. Kobe told him they have a lot of work to do
Jeremy Lin: "I've had the privilege to play with a few very good players in Carmelo, James (Harden) and now Kobe..." No mention of Dwight.
Jeremy Lin talking about trade from Houston at Lakers introductory conference: "I’m seeing it as a new start, a fresh start."
Chemistry with Kobe? I had no idea (trade) was coming. "I was stunned....what the Lakers?"
Lin on the past yr: "I think I've learned and grown a lot as a person and Christian."
Jeremy Lin will wear No. 17....
Mitch Kupchak starts the Lin presser by telling the story of how the Lakers made two previous attempts to acquire Jeremy
Jeremy Lin showed up in formal blue suit....Kupchak jokes about him being "overdressed" for SoCal
Lakers won championships with the last two players who wore 17 (Rick Fox and Andrew Bynum), so I’m cautiously optimistic. I guess.
Jeremy Lin is back from Adidas tour of Asia (contractually obligated to complete). Ready to be introduced formally by the Lakers in an hour.
Pac-12 Network will be available internationally on YouTube. So you can watch it in China but not in L.A. if you have DirecTV.
Rose Bowl really needs to get it together. Been in traffic for 2 hrs since arriving Old Town Pasadena. Haven't parked yet, already halftime
On Tuesday, it was revealed Doc Rivers told the Clippers interim CEO that he doesn’t think he wants to stay if Sterling remains the owner.
People realize Doc Rivers signed a 3-year contract, right? He can't just quit and coach another team tomorrow.
Hi Twitter family - letting you know that I read your tweets (good & bad) but I cannot comment on all of them. I do appreciate them all.
The Lakers have officially signed Jordan Hill, which may or may not end the Jordan Hill sign and trade rumors. BK
Kupchak specifying Jordan Hill's "on-court" work ethic... Ha-ha...
Kupchak on Hill: "Jordan’s frontcourt versatility is a benefit to our roster and his on-court work ethic is something we value on our team."
Per the Lakers, Jordan Hill has been officially signed. Been a busy week for the El Segundo pen. AK
