Jeremy Lin unchained: NBA discrimination could finally end with recent run

By Chris Baldwin
04.10.13 | 02:39 pm


It started with James Harden sidelined, Chris Paul in town and Kevin McHale holding few other options. The Houston Rockets coach almost had to play Jeremy Lin heavy minutes. Lin — long discounted and downgraded — finally would be treated like a regular NBA starting point guard in Houston.

Just like how Mike D'Antoni treated Lin for the few magical weeks that changed the underdog's life last winter.

To his credit, McHale hasn't stopped since either. He's given Lin at least 29 minutes of playing time in six straight games. His reward? The Rockets have cruised into the playoffs for the first time in four years, going 5-1 over that stretch to lock the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz into their own two team death match.


Lin's averaged 17.8 points and 7.6 assists over this playoff clinch stretch, numbers he probably could have averaged for the season if he was guaranteed the type of playing time Harden and Chandler Parsons are. Those are awfully close to the type of numbers that elite point guards put up, of course.

More than the stats, it's the Lin moments that have steadied the Rockets playoff ship, even as Harden and Parsons have gone in and out of the lineup with injuries, though. It's the cold-blooded, shot-clock-expiring 3-pointer he buried with two minutes left in Sacramento. It's the dead-on shooting in that road rout of Portland. It's the fearless drive to the rim off a scramble, the foul drawn and the two game-tying free throws against Phoenix Tuesday night.

The Rockets never get the chance to clinch on the brilliant Harden's "game-winning missed shot" — as CSN's postgame voices memorably kept referring to the freakish Jermaine O'Neal goaltending call — without Lin putting his head down and driving the possession before. No one called that moment for Lin. He made it himself.


Lin's NBA Reality

It turns out Jeremy Lin is still pretty clutch — even far removed from Linsanity. Maybe McHale's realized this. Maybe he's over his phase of leaning on the limited, but suddenly much celebrated Patrick Beverley over Lin late in the fourth quarter.

Six games is too small of a sample size to say for sure — especially with heavy minutes man Parsons having missed four of those games. But it's an encouraging sign as the playoffs approach. Harden is the superstar who changed everything for the Rockets this season, but they have no chance of putting any kind of first round scare into Oklahoma City, San Antonio or Denver without Lin playing a major role.

In a week in which the 60 Minutes profile that detailed the discrimination Lin felt in the college recruiting process came out, the NBA discrimination he's faced could finally be on its way to ending. And make no mistake, the tired belief that Lin really couldn't be as good as he played in New York has always come back to stereotypes about Asians and basketball.

David Stern allowed for that possibility on Lin's draft night. But it didn't stop there. People who harp about Lin's turnovers — while failing to recognize plays like that alley-oop in traffic to Greg Smith Wednesday night — don't tend to make the same criticisms about other point guards.

Someone might want to check out how the turnover numbers of the still-Houston-media-hyped, vastly-overrated point guard of a 23-55 Phoenix Suns team compare to Lin's. If you think the Rockets would be better off with Goran Dragic rather than Jeremy Lin in the long run, you're about as big a basketball deep thinker as Dick Vitale.

Lin's now shown what he can do when not chained to the bench for long stretches of the fourth quarter. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey still rightly lusts after a second superstar, but that quest will play out in the offseason. For these playoffs, there is no doubt that Lin needs to be the secondary focus.

The Rockets need both Harden and Lin attacking the rim to have a puncher's chance. They need them both moving the basketball, making sure guys like Parsons and Smith get open shots.

It started with that win over the Clippers sans Harden, with McHale marveling at how well the ball moved. It carried over into this playoff clinch run. Now the Rockets coach has to make sure he doesn't end it — and his team's season — prematurely.

Dude, you're showing signs of Jeremy Lin addition.

Effects Associated with Chronic Use
Tolerance (needing more of the Jeremy Lin to get the same effect)
Jeremy Lin craving
Temporary weight loss
Withdrawal symptoms including depression and anhedonia
"Jeremy Lin Lip" where lips can get big and fat.
Jeremy Lin-related psychosis (may last for months or years after Jeremy Lin use is discontinued)

It's not make believe. I am not sure the word dislike is true but McHale doesn't trust Lin, at least till recent.

Texans will rue the night they took Pizza Boy J.J. Watt over Nick Fairley, Houston lover

BY CHRIS BALDWIN
04.29.11 | 01:26 am
A star fell right into the Houston Texans laps on draft night, like a blessing from the football gods — only Rick Smith, Gary Kubiak and Wade Phillips didn't grab him. Instead, they punted Nick Fairley right back into the boo-y night.

Fairley landed with the Detroit Lions, where he'll collect Pro Bowl berths for years to come. The Texans took a former Pizza Hut deliveryman instead. But that pizza boy sure has a lot of character.

That's really what it seems to have come down to for the Texans again with the selection of Wisconsin's J.J. Watt. This franchise may never make the playoffs under Bob McNair, but it's sure going to have high-quality gentlemen on the roster. (As long as you dismiss a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs or two.)

Nick Fairley is a character, but he's not of high character. He's something of a dirty player, a cheap-shot artist who is apt to literally kick an opponent when he's down. Fairley may not always say "Yes Sir" to his coaches. He'd bring some challenges to say the least.

But, he's also the most dominant defensive player available. Fairley — not do-everything quarterback Cam Newton — controlled the national championship game for Auburn. He disrupts offenses the way that Charlie Sheen disrupts hotel rooms.

Yes, he's also nasty, mean and hard for coaches to completely rein in. Sounds like exactly what the do-good Texans need. Sounds like some of the best defensive players in NFL history.

Bill Parcells never asked Lawrence Taylor to be a choir boy. Or even to stay awake in meetings for that matter. You can't have a roster filled with those type of problem talents. But you'd better have one or two, if you want to win. The Texans are too often paralyzed by their niceness, by their inability to find a spine when the game's on the line.

Fairley isn't in Taylor's league as a player or a problem. He's more along the lines of the Texans' reclamation running back Arian Foster on the difficulty scale. And how's that turned out for Smith and Kubiak?

Still, they couldn't bring themselves to take a chance with the 11th pick in the draft. Instead of going big, instead of grabbing the best defensive player in the draft (a guy who Mel Kiper was touting as the No. 1 overall pick not long ago), the Texans played it safe and went with the pizza boy.

Watt could turn out to be a fine enough player. With his "high motor" that new Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips keeps talking about, Watt should be at least a serviceable defensive lineman for years to come. He'll work and work, just like he did in going from being out of football for six months, stuck delivering Pizza Hut in his little hometown of Pewaukee, Wis., to walking on to the Badgers as the lowest of scrubs to becoming an impact player in the Big Ten.

"He's an off-the-charts human being," Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said of Watt leading up to the draft.

Watt is a great story. But it's hard to imagine him ever being a star. It's hard to see him changing games for Houston on defense.

That's what the Texans desperately needed. There were two players in this draft who could have done that. One, LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, was long gone by the time the Texans turn came up, with Smith unwilling to pay the price to move up to grab the best player at Houston's most-needed position (another questionable move, but at least one that can be justified). The other sat right there though, still on the board and Houston said no thanks to Fairley.

It's one of those moves that can define a franchise. When the Minnesota Vikings had a chance to go bold in the 1998 draft and they did, stealing Randy Moss with the 21st pick when other teams ran from his issues. Moss eventually drove himself out of Minnesota in embarrassing fashion (some might even say, franchise-embarrassing fashion), but his seven seasons as a game changer paid off that risk a billionfold.

The Texans had a chance at that type of impact risk force ... and they ran smiling politely the other way.

As much as anything, this is why the Smith, Kubiak and now Phillips regime will never completely work. Too safe. Too fearful. Too unimaginative.


Fairley won the Lombardi Award in Houston. He chose to come back and train in Houston for the NFL Draft, understanding innovative training techniques live here. His agent is based in Houston. He's a perfect fit in the 3-4 scheme that Phillips plans to employ in Houston.

You couldn't script a more perfect landing. And the Texans' now three-headed brain trust punted.

Something you still can't expect to see opposing offenses doing too much of in Reliant Stadium this fall. Not without Fairley, not without the star who was sent back to the sky.

"This is fun town," Fairley told me during his Lombardi visit. "I love the chill vibe even though it's big city."

Houston would have loved him too. Only the Texans don't believe in stars. They just want to feel safe.

Journalists are the dumbest and most unoriginal people on the face of the earth yet they parade around as though the opposite were true. When your big accomplishment in life is making up stories that get published as pseudo-fact and is based largely on taking a controversial angle to any and all situations, you are nothing more than a cancer to society. Now that that is off my chest, who here on clutchfans thinks that any coach in the league wouldn't have played Yao Ming for 48 minutes a game and 82 games a year if the guy could hold up?? This race baiting B.S. is so played that you ought to get fired for even presenting it to your boss. I want to go just 1 damn day without hearing something from the media about racism! If anything, they are creating issues amongst people that don't even freaking exist. To hell with all of them!

What happened to bolding something to make fun of in the article that's referred to in the title of this thread like last time? Instead of going through other articles by the same author to prove whatever point you are trying to make, how about focusing on the points made in the original article?

I agree with most of the points made in the article, except for maybe the discrimination angle. The reduced minutes and 4th quarter benchings earlier in the season may be due to other reasons unknown to us. But looking at the recent games, JLin should play starter minutes and has shown in a few situations that he could be clutch in the 4th quarter. The Rockets should count on him to play a key role along with the rest of the starters to help the team in the playoffs.
