    I mean he couldve stayed in China like Marbury but he rather get a teacher's salary and try to get back to the league at his age. I think it's somewhat admirable. Just proves that he really loves basketball and wants to play to his full potential.

    @Zboy
    It’s amazing the dumb theories people are pushing here
    He left the China League cause he sucked
    That’s translates on any court on the planet

    Every excuse on the planet , Jesus probably got tired of his prayers to make the ball going into the basketball

    yep, certainly can appreciate that he wants to play in the best league in the world if he believes he can still play at that level. Nothing wrong with that. Add on top of it the pandemic and wanting to be in his home country with family and friends. He certainly doesn’t need the money, so why not go for it?

    He played in the CBA all-star game and scored a game high 41 points there. Don’t think he left the CBA because he sucked.

    He is still hasn't gotten over the demotion at the hands of Patrick Beverley.

    It emotionally scarred him for life.

    They don’t want him like you do
    At least Marbury got the ducks a championship
    They were just sitting ducks with Lin

    he should be in the NG league

    The Chinese league was too tough for Lin
    G league players like Jimmer can score 75

    Imagine if we sign JLin :eek::D, tanking would be guaranteed.

    Also this board would not survive the psychological trauma. :p

    I have always said that this is his best use in the NBA.

    As long as you have been bad all year, you will get a good draft pick, and he will bring it to you if he is the one running the show for your team.
