    Hawks have 35 wins and are currently 5th in the east. Being competitive with them is a good sign even if, yes, wins/losses are the only thing that count towards your season record.

    I'm sure the 20 win mark doesn't really matter to Lin or the team, but to get 9 more wins with 19 games remaining would be a confidence-builder to the team heading into the off-season. That's really all anyone who supports the Nets can really hope for right now.

    Is there a special party for Lin fans so they can pretend they care about the Nets winning 20 games?

    Of the 2 former Rockets, Parson and Lin, it appears Lin has done better since they both left the team.

    what is your definition of better? Working less and getting overpaid?
    Then it's really close.

    If Brock Osweiller were a different race and played basketball, he'd be Jeremy Lin

    If Tinman did not have to work in a Chinese restaurant and had the money for plastic surgeries, he'd make himself less Asian and actually white. Milky bar white.

    I won't argue with you about that (I disagree, if you must know). But why would you compare Lin and Yao then? Yao said he is "a Rocket for life" because the team treated him great. Lin doesn't consider himself "a Rocket for life" because the team traded him away. Um...doesn't that make perfect sense?

    Of course not. Isiah Thomas is a Hall-of-Famer. But what does that have to do with anything?
