Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Becomes More Crucial With Every Injury

Posted on 19 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

The season hasn’t even begun and the Los Angeles Lakers are once again full to the brim with injuries. Jeremy Lin is part of that epidemic, but nothing too serious, unlike Steve Nash, the supposed starting point guard, who has been held back with different infliction since he joined the team. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Still Not Playing and Everything Looks Terrible

Posted on 17 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

Sometimes the preseason results are meaningless, but there are losses and there are worse things. Jeremy Lin didn’t play for the second game in a row as the Los Angeles Lakers were humiliated at home against the Utah Jazz, losing 119-86, while Kobe Bryant got another example of just how bad of a team he has around him.

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Not Playing Means Looking Terrible

Posted on 13 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

Of all the preseason games we’ve seen so far this season, the Los Angeles Lakers losing to the Golden State Warriors 116-75 has to be the worst so far. Jeremy Lin didn’t play because of an injury. Is that the reason the team looked pathetic from start to finish? More

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Thrives When He’s in the Lineup

Posted on 10 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

Every time Jeremy Lin will be in the lineup with the main players for the Los Angeles Lakers, offensively the team will look much better than with Kobe Bryant or Steve Nash dominating the ball handling. As for defense? That’s a team-wide problem, not just a player-specific problem, as shown in the 120-105 loss to the Golden State Warriors. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe Bryant Looks Good, Jeremy Lin Great Without Scoring

Posted on 7 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

The best news for the Los Angeles Lakers after their first preseason game, in which they beat the Denver Nuggets? No one injured and no other health-related issues. Kobe Bryant looked rusty but dangerous, Steve Nash didn’t breakdown like a porcelain doll while Jeremy Lin, struggling to put the ball in the basket, looked at his finest when trying to make others do the scoring.

Los Angeles Lakers: Jeremy Lin Ready to Become an All-Star

Posted on 1 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

Starting a new chapter in his career, Jeremy Lin once again is facing an uphill battle. He’s right now designated as the backup quarterback (but it’s not that simple) behind an ailing, aching Steve Nash, and is going to share floor time with Kobe Bryant and Nick Young, who just love to hang on to the ball. But this first (and only?) year with the Los Angeles Lakers can become a great stepping stone towards greater things, on this team or another. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Should be Starting Over Steve Nash

Posted on 11 Sep, 2014, by in Basketball

If Byron Scott doesn’t change his initial thought and impressions of the Los Angeles Lakers through training camp, the team’s best point guard, Jeremy Lin, is once again going to find himself playing the role of a backup while Steve Nash, who hasn’t been exactly any good or healthy for quite some time, will remain the starter.

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Can Make the Most of Kobe Bryant Resting

Posted on 10 Sep, 2014, by in Basketball

Joining the Los Angeles Lakers and teaming up with Kobe Bryant means Jeremy Lin isn’t free from the curse of the ball-hogging shooting guard. Maybe things will be different on a new team, but the intended rest Bryant will get from time to time, meaning missing games, should help Lin be a bit more dominant on his new team. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin & Kobe Bryant Have Very Different Motivations

Posted on 4 Sep, 2014, by in Basketball

Every player, almost every new season, has something to prove. But that something? It differs from subject to subject, and maybe the two most important players this season for the Los Angeles Lakers, Jeremy Lin and Kobe Bryant, have a different set of goals going into the 2014-2015 NBA season.

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Makes Them Better But Not Good Enough

Posted on 22 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

We aren’t going to see too many changes in rosters between now and the beginning of the NBA season. The Los Angeles Lakers, adding Jeremy Lin, Carlos Boozer and Julius Randle among others to the returning Kobe Bryant, might look better than they did last season, but it won’t be enough to get them into the playoffs.
