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.

Posted on 20 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

It’s good to have confidence, but James Harden saying about himself that he’s the best player in the NBA is closer to comedy material, when you consider he’s probably the main reason the Houston Rockets lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs, and being “so good” is part of why Jeremy Lin was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Has Himself to Think About Too

Posted on 9 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball

Contract years are a different kind of breed in the NBA scenario. Players often focus on padding up their own stats in order to get a fat juicy contract when they become free agents before reverting back to their “real” selves. Jeremy Lin is in that kind of situation this season with the Los Angeles Lakers and even though it’s slightly against his nature, he has to start playing for himself as well as the team. More

Posted on 7 Aug, 2014, by in Basketball
