Is Jeremy fairly/unfairly being treated as the scapegoat?

    see, if this is true, i'd like Lin to break his character and become one of these NBA divas in responding

    he should yell back, argue with them, and get in their face on national television. he's making himself way too easy to be targeted

    he should say "if they have a problem, they can come tell me and we can handle it"

    by assistance coaches? they should be his water boys

    We just had a heartbreaking loss. Everyone is acting in the heat of the moment. Calm the f down, Lin can stand up for himself. He wouldn't be where he is today if he didn't have the mental toughness. This is nothing to him.

    I love Lin, love his play and fist pumps every time he scores. But I disagree that he is the face of the Rockets or a leader. He came to the Rockets the same time as Harden, but he lacks the confidence to lead a team. Harden has that swag, that "I'm the man" attitude. Sadly, Lin does not have that. I want Lin to have that.

    It's clear that Lin is a polarizing figure both on the Rockets and with the fanbase.

    Wrong, his defense is worse than poor.

    Sure b/c then we get a PF but are stuck with a PG that shoots 1-10, can't initiate any ball movement and get the rest of the team involved but is the most overrated defensive player on the team.

    How about trade Bev and Asik?

    It's not a lack of talent. You can trade whatever players you want, but not fixing the bigger, underlying flaws in the team's game won't solve anything. Then you're back at square one wondering why.

    I always find it funny how vicariously Lin fans live through this guy. They take it as a personal insult whenever something happens to Lin or something is said about Lin.

    Looks like Lin being yelled at by both Harden and Dwight have been caught by BBall bloggers on twitter. Here's another one.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Dwight Howard grilling Jeremy Lin on how Blake ended up wide open. Like he didn't miss 89 FTs</p>&mdash; Marcus Thompson (@gswscribe) <a href="https://twitter.com/gswscribe/statuses/398685379433205761">November 8, 2013</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    But this one isn't a surprised, we all saw this on TV.

    Lin is a grown man you weirdos. He should learn how to fight his own battles.

    If Harden hates Lin so much why is he allowed to take part of the ritual bowing at one another thing before a game starts. I think they were just in the moment. If Lin is no longer part of the bowing ritual, then I'll start worrying...lol. I heard Lin, Harden, and Parsons still does it even when Lin doesn't start.

    Like a swarm of bees these Lin fans. Any player that is perceived to have slighted Lin gets attacked.

    I'm sure he is. He wouldn't be in the NBA if he doesn't know how to. Guy got cut twice but is here and making millions. Still, that doesn't make him as the Rockets' whipping boy right especially if he doesn't deserve it. He's the most consistent player we've had this season so far and you'd be a flat-out hater to deny that.

    Yes, I think he is. Thus I think Lin needs to be traded and LOF should stop visiting this forum.
