    lol...unconfirmed rumors.

    More like wishful thinking of folks at LOF forums which is his permanent home base.

    They are hoping for Bulls, Indiana etc etc...

    Instead., their own Hero decides to run to the Nets.

    Don't know, but most of the talk about the Pelicans was focused on pairing Lin and Anthony Davis in the PnR, so I assume yes. The talk around the Bulls was about how they would replace Derrick Rose, but then obviously they signed Rondo and were set. I don't remember the specifics around Indiana other than their PG situation being unsettled and that Lin would be a good fit.

    it looks like all talk and rumors

    they didn't really officially make an offer to Lin, because if they did, any competitive, confident, and mentally strong bball player who wants to win would have jumped on any of those over playing in NJ with BLopez

    Ha! Not even!

    Pairing Airemy with Anthony for pick and roll.

    Running the PG on the Bulls by replacing Rose.

    lol...like I said, nothing but LOFs pipedreams going into free agency thinking their hero is going to be stat padding while running pick and roll with one of the best big man in the league. Or the Bulls is going to hand their franchise over to him.

    Hahahahahahahaha.....

    The harsh reality?

    The worst team in the league.

    @FTW Rockets FTW

    Everything you need to know is here.
    "treated in Houston". There were players and coaches that weren't treated well by the Rockets and we're still Rockets fans.
    This shows LOFs don't understand 1 thing about being a team fan.
    And I don't buy this I've been a fan since Mookie Blaylock.

    Credibility on the purest Rockets fan forum is questionable to say the least

    While we are exposing Lin fan frauds, Let's not forget this other Lin fan idiot

    Thankfully, he was smart enough to stop posting here.

    Lol....

    Yoeddy keeps getting exposed as a fraud. Tinman on a roll.

    We all know exactly why you are here.

    You are here and on other team's forums (couple, which is not same as one) to defend your scrub hero's honor. You have invested so much time and energy on that scrub and have spent so many days of your life living vicariously of off him that you see his failures as your own failures.

    As for krxsnoopy, oh geez...thinking Airemy was better than Isiah, and making fun of him. Those quotes lol.... Ouch, those are some embrassing quotes. He probably ran away hoping no one will dig them out. But FTW goes FTW.

    Lulz...

    Jeremy Lin was not treated OK with the Rockets, he was treated WELL.
    He just didn't treat the basketball well or the shot clock .

    Same with every team he played with.
    Especially the Lakers. HE'S FROM CALIFORNIA.

    LOFs were ecstatic when he joined the Lakers, it was their dream come true.

    then reality happened.

    Hometown Scrub.


    I warned them as soon as the trade went down.

    Told them he is a one year rental and that he won't be on the Lakers the following year.

    But they were in denial. They were dreaming about the Airemy and Kobe plays and the Lakers embracing Airemy.

    Kobe bitch slapped all that nonsense away soon enough lol...

    Here's the reason why he's not on Lakers Ground or likes it.

    Lakers Ground had the benefit of watching what happened here and implemented strict rules against LOF.

    Rockets and Lakers fans don't want this trash on their sites.

    I'm getting exposed for writing stuff that I stand fully behind? That I have never wavered from since I wrote it? How is that "getting exposed"? I guess you can say that I've been exposing it from the very beginning...

    Sure...and unless Beverley actually signed a contract with the Cavs, that was all talk too.

    apples to oranges

    that was a trade.. cavs and bulls were interested with bev.. but its not as simple as bev accepting it.. both teams have to agree nothing to do with the player being traded unless he has a no trade clause..

    but free agency is simpler.. a team offers a player a contract, player simply agrees to the contract or not..

    lets go back to pelicans, bulls, and indy offering jlin? links where you heard it..

    His mission on this site and all the other sites he joined is to spin Jeremy Lin into something positive.
    Either it being something that really happened or rumor or just lies, it will be spun into Jeremy Lin is in the right for everything.

    This is the problem with having these type of posters joining our board.

    The thing that I dont get about Lin fans is how much they victimize lin. They act like he's some sob story where some evil coaches/gms always plot against him because of his race.

    The rockets treated him great. Les (mistakenly) wanted him really bad by all accounts and gave him 24 mil guaranteed before the salary cap spike when 8 mil a year was quite a lot for an unproven player at the time.

    Also McHale gave him plenty of chances to start and hold the position before he lost his job to beverley.

    When did anyone ever treat him with less respect then he deserved?

    And nobody come at me with the pic of melo wearing the number 7. Number 7 is not a retired number and there was nothing disrespectful about that.

    The paranoid victim mentality of LOFs is nauseating.

    I will say this though. It seems like eddy acknowledges part of reality sometimes and can be semi reasoned with (although obv a lof that isnt a true fan of any nba team) but mig0s is on another level of being delusional.

    Best one was where Airemy fans were trying to save Airemy from himself.

    Clutch gave a collective beating here to a bunch of LOFs like yoeddy in that epic thread.

    It is their duty to spin Lin negatives into positives any way they can.

    This is what happens when you like vicariously off of a scrub.

    Just look at yoeddy.

    Bottom line. No one forced Airemy Lin to go to one of the worst teams in the league. He did it happily for his own selfish reasons and it wasn't for winning basketball games. He made a decision to play for the worst team in the league because he himself knows he is a scrub and that is the only team where he will get starter minutes. Coming off the bench on a winning team did not interest him.

    Eh...anyone will come out ahead when compared to mig0s. He has consistently been one of the worst posters on this board when it comes to anything basketball related as pointed out by several folks here.

    IMO, he can make much better use of that $10 a month that he has saved up for a gym lol...

    Maybe a basketball stream subscription so that he can actually watch some games.

    $10 a month should get him one at 144p resolution.
