    As a kid, I spent a week each summer in Chicago visiting with cousins, and we'd play pickup ball every day, and every kid played with their tongue sticking out like we were all some kind of Michael Jordan in the making. Jordan was our hero, the greatest of all time, but we were all too young to realize what we were witnessing.

    I followed the Bulls because of Jordan (and because my cousins were such big homers), but my team was the Celtics. If the Internet had existed back then, I don't know for sure how I would have behaved on the Bulls forum. I'd like to imagine that I would have been respectful to longtime Bulls fans, not zealously debating or defending against every single perceived criticism of Jordan.

    at least you exercised your fingers, better than smoking a cigarette which is unhealthy.

    Damn did he hit on your wife or gave you a hastily scribbled autograph on a napkin or something? This sounds way too personal! You thought he was a b!itch in ny? Did he totally destroyed your view of what a nba starting pg should look like? Is that it? Can't really think of a logical reason for this type of hate.. My goodness..

    Who are you kidding? Go look on YouTube and compare the # viewed for Lin vs Kobe vs MJ videos. Even Stern calls Lin the biggest thing in basketball. There was a reason why Lin was the Number One in Time's 100 last year (uh, Time is a magazine in case you don't know that).

    youtube hits??

    why don't you look at how many hits Chocolate rain or William Hung got too?

    I knew Lin fans had some mental issues, but the word:

    MJ

    ANY MJ,
    Jordan
    Jackson
    Johnson

    should NEVER EVER BEE MENTIONED with Jeremy Lin

    you got that Billie Jean?

    Some of you fake ass fans liked the Bulls with that punk Scottie Pippen?

    All of y'all need to be in the room so they can play " The Rains of Castamere "
    Rocket fans send their regards

    As it stands I feel that Lin is so toxic to some people on the boards.

    its as if they want to see him trip and fall smash his head on a metal pole.

    Wow. Word.

    Finally someone who has the bravery to be honest! So many Rockets fan who feel just like do, sir, come on this blog and put forth all kinds of talk about Lin's underachieving play, why he doesn't fit into the offense, why he can't play alongside Harden, why he should be traded--when you and I know the real truth of the matter is that they simply don't like Jeremy Lin as a person, and that the basketball talk is just a cover. Even if Lin went out and scored a triple-double every night--they would still want him off the team. It is very, very personal with them. They see Lin as maybe this weak, goody-goody whom they'd all but like to squish :mad:: it has nothing to do with the basketball.

    No, Michael. You get it straight in your head that the earth is round and there is a bigger world out there than Houston and the rockets, oh, and CF (sorry, Clutch but think you already know that). :grin:

    No Rockets fannwants Lin to fail,

    they just want the Lin fans who joined Clutchfans for the sole purpose of spamming Rockets fans to suddenly have their internet access revoked until they find another planet with water in the solar system or when the First of the North star finds his woman or when Guns N Roses makes another album.

    Then why are you on a site that was created for the Houston Rockets then?

    there is a bigger world yes, go spread the word about Jeremy Lin to every human being on every continent,

    no why not tell every creature about him too? Tell the frogs in the pond about Linsanity.

    You don't need to do that here, cause we get that you go on youtube and watch jeremy lin videos on repeat
