    Yao had a much harder road to the nba and he succeeded without being so whiny and soft. I sucked today so it's just gods obstacle.
    No dude, you suck cause you aren't improving your game promoting your brand and religion and preaching to your brainwashed fans

    Yao's road was hard but different than lin......Yao did not express or shared his feelings due to his language difficulties,..Yao's not an American and Lin is dude!! Also, if you ever watched "The Year of the Yao"...he complaint alot about being in the NBA..the pressures of being in the spot light both media in the US and China...does this make Yao a mental midget too?

    You just have an issue with Lin and what his Fans had done to you in the past...Lin is a solid NBA player and a good team players that is liked by his team mates....especially his bromate Chandler Parson...lol

    I thought that finally that was a good post until the last sentence..that screwed up all the rest.
    WTF?? Do you realise that this is racist? You still attribute his perfomances to his race? So basically you conceded nothing only found the same old excuse.

    He is an american. There is no language barrier or culture shock or learning to plaly with new rules nothing. No excuses. You are just being a racist.

    Lol the lof trying to sympathize lin's journey to Yao's.

    Lin grew with in the ultra exclusive town of palo alto with rich Facebook people and Stanford University.

    Yao grew up in a crammed apartment in china.

    Lin ate in and out burgers.

    Yao didn't know about that, he came to America with no friends.

    But he built his relationships here and learned the culture and soon he was eating chinese food with mutumbo and Patrick ewing.

    Yao was the 1 pick, he had massive expectations for an entire country on him and he never folded under pressure.

    Lin was exhausted while playing for his home state lakers who didn't even make the playoffs.

    Please lin fan, cry me a California river with palm trees and in and out burgers

    The year of the yao was a better documentary than Linsanity.

    Especially for rockets fans, because it was about someone who really represents the rockets and real loyalty

    Considering where Lin was rated as a prospect - NBA bench player should be considered a success story for him.

    Lin's road was hard though. He probably would have gotten a D1 scholarship. At least some sort of mid-major...

    And ALL d-leaguers who eventually carve out lasting careers in the NBA have a pretty tough road.

    But I don't want to get sucked into this thread (too late?). All in all, I think it fair Lin did encounter some unique obstacles. But those same very obstacles made him a global celebrity...

    Let's just say he's a decent NBA player who has had a weird NBA career (from D-League to Linsanity to huge contract).

    How can any idiot LOF still defend Lin?

    On any team where he has a lot of minutes the team has gotten significantly better as soon as his sorry butt was gone.

    NY had their best record in a decade and we had our deepest run in 20 years.

    He can't produce quality numbers on a winning team (with us), or on a losing team (Lakers).

    Racism? He is mainly popular because he is Asian and an Asian GM gave him another contract. If he were another race he wouldn't have large contracts and these legions of insane fans who follow him everywhere and live their beta lives through him. Sounds to me like his race helped him more than anything.

    The only thing I would give him credit for is even after all his crying nights in bed (his words) he didn't quit. Now that he went to the East on a losing team, he officially tamponed out.

    Let's not just say that. Lin is a average or below average NBA player that has yet to live up to his Linsanity fame. Lin didn't have to play all year per the communist party as Yao did either.

    This post will end this thread.....Lin as a rocket did not live up to expectation for both his fans or the rocket fans. He's not a scrub or mental midget. He was not held down by his coach, harden or anyone due to his race. He did adjust to whatever role was asked of him by his coach and played hard. He helped the rockets make the playoffs for the first time after many years. He made two critical errors in the playoff lose. He helped win one playoff game with a good game after being the goat. In conclusion, he was a solid player for the rockets but did not fulfill the expectation we all was hoping when he join the team.

    Anyone who disgrees with this summary is either a lof or loh.
