    Asik got us a pick because he didn't suck.

    Airemy cost us a pick because he sucked.

    Lakers didn't sign Airemy because they didn't want to because he sucked.

    They rejected him.

    He wasn't wanted by their fans.

    He wasn't wanted by the management.

    Airemy Lin was a disaster.

    But keep making excuses for your disgraced hero, because that's what you LOFs do.

    Lol

    Lin is not better than Rafer Alston. That's another Lin fan lie because they are insecure of Lin's crap play at a point guard.

    Rafer actually played in the NBA Finals, a team trusted him with his ball handling unlike Lin, who keeps getting his position demoted or switched to 'combo guard' because his ball handling is terrible.

    Just because you went to Harvard doesn't mean you're the only one that knows what a retard-free-agent means.

    He left because the Lakers did not offer him a contract. Why?

    Hey, he is still in the NBA while drafted players like Dmo are on their way out.

    I'd rather have DMo than Jerry. But neither seems better.

    Both are not exceptionally good players for the NBA of today. But I would say Jerry did have more impactful games with New York than Dmo ever has.

    And considering that Jerry was undrafted (I am not even counting in that he was among a handful Asian Americans that made this league) he did decent enough.

    Hey, yeah, he declined. Well, others did too.

    You dun see a whole lot of other Asian Americans play in the NBA do you?

    Rafer Alston actually knew what being a PG means. He took care of the ball and set the team offense. He was under control and did not make boneheaded decisions. If his shooting wasn't erratic, he would have been really good.

    Airemy on the other hand is a selfish bonehead that thinks he is much better than he is and is always trying for the hero ball. Weak dribble, bad decision making, inconsistency, mental midgetness, just some of his glaring weaknesses why he is playing for the worst team in the league now.

    Do you think JVG would hand over his team offense to Airemy like he did with Rafer lol??

    Airemy hero ball and Gundy! Haha...

    Airemy Lin would have been in Gundy's doghouse just like Vaisillis was.

    Airemy sucks. There is no other way to put it. And no one except a LOF like yoeddy would pick Airemy over Rafer to run the point.

    Rafer wasn't great but Airemy just plain sucks.

    What does Asian have to do with this? Who cares. He sucks and that's all that matters. He ruined a playoff run for us so Uncle Les told Morey to send him packing regardless of the cost. Two picks later and we were able to void ourselves of his piss poor quality. He sucked for us, he sucked for everyone except those 14 games for the Knicks. He was awesome for 14 games. Can't take that away from him, but his inconsistency is awful. His boneheaded plays are not forgivable. McHale was dumb to play the guy as much as he did.

    He declined? Kevin McHale thinks he's become a much better player than when he was with the Rockets. The Hornets fell apart with out him...so did the Nets, for that matter when he was out with injury.

    https://clutchpoints.com/kevin-mchale-praise-jeremy-lin/

    “He’s a better shooter, a better defender. He’s more disciplined, a better decision-maker. He’s a better shooter, which sets up his ability to drive more. All those things he got better in. He’s much better in a lot of different ways.”

    I think the biggest tradegy of Lin was we let Dragic walk so we can sign him lol. Imagine Dragic, Harden, Dwight and Parsons (as opposed to Portions) with Bev as 6th man. I think that tean would've been really good offensively and defensively

    Don't forget Livingston as well.

    We gave Airemy the scrub a huge contract when we had several better options.

    And how does Airemy reward Morey? By killing Rockets in the playoffs against Blazers by trying to be a hero

    Airemy Lin keeps sucking.

    Seriously, he should try something else because he sucks at basketball.

    And let's not forget, this "Christian" didn't give a penny of this $60 millions plus lifetime earning to the city of Houston during our hours of need.

    James gave $1 million. Curry himself donated over $100k. The city of Houston gave this dude $25 millions and we didn't get any support from him. That ain't Christian like, y'all.

    No wonder ESPN left him off the TOP 100 list

    I am not going to say anything about this event specifically but overall most of Airemy's "Christian" work involves hyping himself up through social media, rounding up his followers. and using Bible quotes in a passive aggressive manner against his "wrong doers".

    It's a marketing ploy that his knucklehead followers are more than eager to eat up.

    A scrub like Airemy has to do all this to stay relevant.
