Same. Lawson is horribly underrated. I was also hoping the Lakers would have made a play for him too but that guy Nash should do just fine.=)
Yea and Lin is over rated.

What he did with Knicks and what he showed, not overrated. This year barring injury he will be an all-star.

LOL! Lin is the Tebow of the NBA with a little less flukery and not all the Jesusing. Lin was an unknown, un-scouted nobody last year that nobody saw coming which meant nobody prepared for him until Miami said watch this and brought Lin's dream start to a crashing halt and exposed him and all of his deficiencies and thus did every team after that for the most part.

To say Lin will have upped his game 10 fold in one off season and be All-Star caliber is asinine but it's par for the course coming from you Angelinoflake.

I do wish Lin the best of fortunes but teams will prepare for him now and take him a bit more seriously and then we'll see what he really is and more so we'll see if all your "sources" are correct LOL.

Jusayin, just say u do not know BB and be honest about it. The Chinese take care of their own, he will have a good year and the votes will come in for him. Right now he is one of the top two most popular players in the NBA, right after Derek Rose.
If he averages 15 pts per game, 3.5 rebs, six assists, 1 steal and less than 3.4 t/o per game he will be an all-star. The truth is more important than the color of someone's skin, u guys are too racist, so what if JL is Chinese and pay no taxes in America, he is going to be an all-star.

In a very short time, JL will play his first pre-season game. I will see if my sources are right, I am curious just like all of you are. We will see if intelligence and hard work pay off or not. The man is more physical than you think-- 200 lbs, 42" vertical, bench presses 250 lbs, runs 40yd in 4.8 secs, sees court well and can finish and go to his now. But I still question his decision making and his rushing into and forcing plays, has that changed or not. The mental aspect of the game is of utmost importance not the color of his skin, who cares, you guys are too much into racism.

We need to check JL's birth certificate to see whether he is Chinese or American. If he is not American he should not be on the all-star team.

Ginobili aka Snowfalke aka Angela is a massive bigot and racist amongst other things that will post racist comments here and there and several posts later will then call everyone else a racist to try and get a rise out of them.

He's a worthless, multiple personality, d-bag troll. Period.

The truth is not weird nor racist. Let's face the facts, if JL was white he would not be an all-star this year. Blacks and Chinese are previledged, they stick to their own and will vote their men on.

If a black or Chinese were average they would be voted to the all star team easily because there are over five billion colour ppl in the world and there is only 8% whites in the world. Race matters my friend. You have to be super good to be an all star if you are white.

My god Ginoflake here we go again. Dude ask yourself or find out where the popular vote comes from. Number 2.. ah hello the majority of players in the NBA are black period. Chee not alot of white guys to vote for is there? You never think logically about anything before opening your trap.. Do you? Good grief. Enough already regarding people's skin colour, just shut up and enjoy the game. Better yet get out for good.

Thank you for reminding me, the blacks are over their quota for the NBA, they make up of only 10% of the USA population, the NBA should be only 10% blacks. I will write my politicians about this, they have already told me that they would do something to correct this.

Uh no...If Linn WAS white he would be super crazy hyped and maybe in the running to be the new NBA logo. Case and point: Tim Tebow. No other back up QB in NFL history has had this much hype for so little talent. In fact, you can probably combine every back up QB in NFL history and all of them wouldn't come close to the hype Tebow has generated and that's including names like Steve Young and Tom Brady too while they were back-ups.

Linn is a hype machine and it wasn't an accident that Tebow "reached out" to Linn last season and Linn also benefited from it too. He got asked Tebow buddy questions for a month.

Also, Americans of color no matter what color they are, are NOT privileged and it's a constant struggle for equality. Racism and segregation and bigotry are still alive and well here in the good ol US-of-A and you are a prime example Angelinoflake.

You and Sammy linked me with segregation, racism and bigotry, what a joke. I am preaching racial quotas to even out things. You are rooting for JL whether than the stereotypical American, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant American is a blasphemy. Whites should be the dominant force in the NBA both in players and in management and ownership.

No, you're not linked you ARE a racist and a bigot that believes everyone but white people should be put somewhere else away from whites or just eliminated and that's segregation you tool!

The majority of the owners in the NBA are white already including management and if white guys were better in bball there would be more there too but that's not the case.

I am BTW NOT partial to Lin either way. If he does well great but I don't want to see Lin become the NBA's version of Tebow where he's all hype but no real NBA game.

Go check yourself and your other 2 or more identities back in already.
