Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year. Today: We’ll explain why the Houston Rockets are just another stop on the Dwight Howard circus tour. And that there’s no hope for the future.
Houston Rockets guard vs. non-athletic mayor wearing slacks and a dress shirt. How many shots will it take Lin to score?
Remember this guy? There’s a movie about him now, and it looks good.
California has, like, 30 million people. So if you win the “High School POY” award, it means something. Apparently not if you’re Asian. Even Lin’s hometown University, Stanford, didn’t give him a look after a 32-1 championship winning season where he averaged 15.1 points, 7.1 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 5.0 steals. That’s like painting a Rembrant and not getting in to a 4-year art school. In this sneak preview look at this Sunday’s 60 minutes, the Houston Rocket’s point guard sits down and discusses his whirlwind tour to stardom, and the racial obstacles he’s had to overcome.
The Rockets as a whole had a tough time last night, falling to the Clippers 106-96 without James Harden, but Jeremy Lin had an especially rough time. It wasn’t so much because of his performance – he managed 14 points and seven assists, though he shot just 4-for-12 and had four turnovers – but because of the physical pounding he took, particularly one second-quarter sequence when he just kept getting knocked down to the court. And one of those plays, many thought, was dirty. Watch the video above and see if you agree. [ProBasketballTalk]
What Happened Last Night: The Jets Lost In Depressing Fashion (Again), And The Rockets Triumphed In Jeremy Lin’s Return To MSG
Welcome to another edition of “What Happened Last Night,” in which we will talk about (ugh) the Jets. And also other things, so as to cleanse your palate of the Jets once we’re through with the necessary evil of discussing them. Let’s get this over with, shall we?
It wasn’t all rainbows, butterflies, and tender hugs for Jeremy Lin in his return to New York. Reigning Defensive POY Tyson Chandler got particularly defensive in the second quarter of Monday night’s contest against Lin, whacking him in the face and drawing a flagrant foul.
