His shot? That'll be the big question mark.... we'll see.

Like Acie said, a lot of PGs leave their feet to make a pass, but they have an idea of where they're throwing it.

Lin yesterday often left his feet without knowing where the throw it. Actually, he would drive the lane, jump to make a shot but he's being contested. Only then does he throw the ball, but often at the last second. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

Yeah... talking about MMA and Survivor on a BASKETBALL WEBSITE is the very essence of lunacy.

You're right 'trane.... by all means please do your best to educate the "unwashed masses" here and dazzle them with your wit and vast amount of knowledge on all things deemed "important".

PM me cliff notes when you're done m'kay?

Why is it that in most seasons the hot chick gets voted off in the first few weeks. They should have an all "hot chick" version of survivor.

Sweet. Guess that's what the "ignore" feature is for.

"MMA" and "Survivor" have about as much place on a basketball website as "Skyrim" and "Guitar/Bass Appreciation" threads. Difference is, no one's throwing THOSE interests in your face now are they?

too bad you can't ignore a mod.


my point is that all of those things have a place, and i participate in almost all of them. but i don't go around saying nonsense like 'religion and politics are pointless', when i participate in plenty of pointless stuff all the time.

That would probably be highest-rated show of all time. Seriously. Show has a lot of female viewers though... maybe you'd just have to make it "Survivor: SuperModels Edition" and have male and females all between the ages of 18 and 25.

Oh I can ignore anyone... don't believe the hype.

And I never said that Religion & Politics are pointless... you drew that conclusion on your own. What I said was "Religious and Political DEBATES (with strangers over the internet being implied) are pointless". And they are IMO. People tend to have strong feelings on those topics and are rarely willing to hear another side of the issue without wanting to tear it down.

If the term "Asian-American" bothers you so much then you're certainly more than welcome to refer to Lin as "that Chinese-Taiwanese guy born and raised in Palo Alto, California". A bit of a mouthful though.

people gotta stop being difficult for the sake of being difficult and just talk ball in a ball thread.

on a main note, very impressed with this kid. pretty great inspiration story if you ask me. kid comes into these games with so many factors against him and proves himself. lets hope he can keep it up.

starting at post #7, this pretty much ceased to be a thread about ball.

If you add "crazy" to "hot chick", they DO have an all-chick version of Survivor.

It's called The Bachelor. And it's awful.

Actually not bad SJ.

He is alot of fun to watch...he is at least of Asian decent....why do we have to complicate the matter.

I for one, am pulling for the kid. Thats a big stage he just kicked ass on.

this has nothing to do with being pc. don't get the idea that i'm somehow offended. i just don't find it interesting to care what race he is. he's much more interesting as a human, and the rest of the lables are just window dressing.

I dunno I think its defiantly relevant he is of Chinese decent, there isn't many in the NBA and its newsworthy for sure.

I don't believe he is the victim of any racism but you can't ignore that he is a minority in the game.
