2021 UPDATE: |
It appears Jeremy Lin has become a full-time activist for the plight of Asian-Americans, especially with all the Anti-Asian hate going on. This is the most important issue right now, and I'm glad he's speaking out as with other Asian-American personalities.
Recent appearances, podcasts and interviews (most recent on Ellen) are bringing this issue to light.
As far as his career, it could be over. Jeremy Lin could wait until the very last second of the season, but I've always been skeptical as most realistic fans. Through Lin's career - we should know by now that in a white / black industry such as sports, Asians or Asian-Americans
are usually overlooked or not given any benefit of the doubt (usually scapegoated). This is the type of subtle racism that Jeremy Lin is never going to admit to or speak about (perhaps he might be aware inside). GS might have signed him to the G-League to help mentor their youth - with no intentions on signing him. Well - Lin did get playing time for whatever that is worth with Santa Cruz.
My focus is on other industries far more important than sports for Asian-Americans. I'll still keep track on any Jeremy Lin news, but if he has return to the CBA or if he plans on retiring, Jeremy Lin has other career options. With his popularity still at a high, and business ventures galore, he'll be well off.
As opposed to most bums from the league who have to leave it. Jeremy Lin said his Foundation is going to be his focus.
The future of this fan page - might be archived or removed at some point.
Good luck Jeremy Lin and Santa Cruz - I hope they make it to the Finals and win it all. I believe they can. Jeremy Lin is always going to be a team player - we need to stop with the "He needs to" otherwise. He can get his own as well.
Jeremy Lin can score 100 points, and I still don't think it would make any difference. It is very challenging being Asian with all the obstacles and enemies we have to face. But it just makes us stronger, more laser-focused and more proud to be who we are.
Certainly for me - I would hell not want to be any other person or race at this point.
Jeremy Lin returns! Jeremy Lin's improved three has been lethal, but his ability to drive, PnR, and make plays are also lethal. That's a dangerous player. We just want or hope that Jeremy Lin does not take unnecessary risks
that would further injure his back or other. But from this game, he looks healthy. For sure, stay away from taking charges.
I posted this on my blog as well: "I absolutely applaud Jeremy Lin for continuing to speak out against the racism / violence against Asian-Americans, because he just recently experienced one in the G-League. I'm glad the Warriors organization and the league are looking into it,
and the culprit (or culprits) need to be punished. If you allow this to happen, it'll continue to happen. Jeremy Lin is not about calling out any individuals, but some of us like myself won't hesitate to.
Asian-Americans / Asians should no longer be submissive and quiet. The stereotypes have harmed us for decades, for the longest time. In my opinion, it's more important for us to continue to spread awareness in building an army of support, and to continue
to become more happy and successful across all industries. Self-esteem, self-assurance and confidence are indications that you are the real deal - you can even laugh at yourself."
I'm glad that Jeremy Lin is speaking up about the recent wave or spate of violent racism / discrimination against Asians / Asian-Americans, and from his own experiences. The more awareness, the better.
His back spasms have been a "oh no" situation or a grave concern to fans. Is his career over? If he cannot play extended games even in the G-League, what does that say about his longevity now that his body is gettin' old.
I always believed that Jeremy Lin still has that youthful energy and a lot left in his tank. I heard he's just being cautious and nothing too serious.
Jeremy Lin is ballin' for sure. We hope he'll keep it up. I'm very skeptical of a call-up however. Jeremy Lin is never given the benefit of the doubt due to institutional or subtle racism / discrimination. We all know Jeremy Lin is better than a lot of bums
currently in the league. His playmaking, improved 3 and D are still difference makers. He might not be as young as the youth of today, but he is still young / youthful than most.
The only concern is his back, however minor as it might be. We hope he'll limit taking charges or stop it altogether. Jeremy Lin is going to be Jeremy Lin, and he'll keep doing his thing.
Happy Va - "Lin" - tine indeed. During the height of Linsanity, that game winner never gets old or tiring to watch.
Jeremy Lin should keep the momentum going, and remain aggressive / confident in his plays. Absolutely he has plenty left in his tank.
02/10: It Has Begun
Good luck to Jeremy Lin and the Santa Cruz Warriors. Goddammit - give Jeremy Lin playing time and he'll shine through!
01/30: Let The G-League Begin
Training camp is around the corner, and we all know that Jeremy Lin is ready. And he should just ball out.
I would purchase Jeremy Lin's new signature shoes or "kicks" - the JLIN1's. If I was able to fit it in my budget that is. Unfortunately, our budget is quite tight.
Jeremy Lin is off to Santa Cruz - he is lookin' forward to gettin' his game on.
I'm glad to hear that the Jeremy Lin Foundation is donating for AAPI causes. It donates to a lot of worthwhile causes. But for me - AAPI causes are priority above all else.
I think Jeremy Lin should have been in Jay Chou's "Mojito" video (almost matching shirts) haha. Or at least a collaboration on a "J-Style Trip" episode on Netflix. I can imagine Jeremy chillin' with Jay Chou and the gang, drinkin' them Mojitos, smokin' them cigars
and dancin' the night away. He has some moves at least in the "Ice Cream" video.
Jeremy Lin joins the Santa Cruz Warriors, and game play begins next month. Fans are excited - we are certain that he'll ball out. The most important thing is that he finds a situation where he is given enough playing time and an acceptable role - none of this
mentorship bullcrap or being used. His talents have been wasted for so long.
It has been confirmed - Jeremy Lin is heading to the G-League as a way to return to the NBA. We already know he is ready anyway, with a lot left in his tank. But there are no other alternatives unfortunately. After all this silence and uncertainty, we had no idea in which direction this was going to go.
Either way, I would have just wished J-Lin good luck in any endeavor.
But there seems to be a glimmer of hope for now. Let us continue to support and root for J-Lin: if not for his funny videos and facial expressions to keep us entertained heh.
12/20: Stick With It
Jeremy Lin's Weibo: "Stick With It". Apparently, the rumors of Lin negotiating a deal with GS for their G-League team hit a snag; as release papers were not provided. Whoever's fault it is - agent, CBA or the team themselves.
Well, it's a moot point. It appears to be too late now.
It could mean that J-Lin might have to wait out for most of the season - until there is another opportunity or chance. But it remains to be seen whether it really is too late.
As with any rumor, never take it seriously. As with any article or outlet, treat it as clickbait. In what he calls a "complicated" situation or what I call "a mess", Jeremy Lin does not appear dour or gloomy. Instead, he is upbeat and happy. Well,
who wouldn't be if your brand of shoes have become insanely popular.
Several scenarios could be true - teams are wary or distrustful of Jeremy Lin's abilities at his age (which is very much a part of the racist agenda of the messy league). Teams already have a glut of guards, and do not consider Lin a priority. Teams are "threatened"
by Jeremy Lin's popularity, fame and his playmaking / improved shooting abilities (again - another racist agenda from the league). We know he is better than a lot of the bums there anyway.
12/15: The Jeremy Lin Update
We still have no idea what Jeremy Lin's situation is or his plans. Except what he is posting on Weibo, TikTok, or IG Stories. He is still training, enjoying his new life as a business entrepreneur and modeling career with Coach. Jeremy Lin's popular xTep shoes -
unfortunately, I do not have the funds to buy a pair.
Brother Josh Lin's new kid - never knew that. Jeremy Lin usually playing around more with his nephew. Cute is not the word anymore, perhaps chubby hahah.
With nothing going on these days, here's some humor. Jeremy Lin's "Say What??" expression when confronting Josh Fan's attempt at the Butterfly dribbling (via Josh Fan's TikTok) hahaha.
10/24: Nothing Stops Me
I love this. This should be the rallying cry for all Asian-Americans who have to endure discrimination and injustices. But the overall message is to not let obstacles get in the way in your happiness and success.
Jeremy Lin looked fluid and smooth with his jumpers in the recent video from J-Law. I would take it as a light workout or scrimmage - I don't think anyone went "all out". We are all anticipating and hoping for the right situation with Jeremy Lin in regards to his future. In Jeremy Lin we trust as well.
Oh yea - his xtep shoes about to go global. Nov. 04 - if it's available for domestic shipping, this might be something worth getting or certainly paying attention to.
The Super Lin Bros. indeed - brother Joseph Lin repping Gillette. Jeremy Lin gettin' an action figure, and his xtep shoes are going to be released at the end of the month.
You know a person becomes well-known and like a celebrity-figure once the person gets endorsements, and especially an action figure.
Overworking can be a problem - but it's not a problem to want to work more or overwork. It's not easy to balance your goals or desires with what is actually practical or efficient.
10/10: Farts Over Faith haha
C'mon, Jeremy - just let them farts rip even in the presence of the great Josh Fan haha.
10/02: Faith Over Fear
Damn right, or more like - "Fear does not exist with Jeremy Lin, does it?" haha. If you have faith (or better yet for me at least - confidence and swag), nothing can stop you. Or trivial obstacles, adversity and hate have little to no effect on our own happiness or success.
Tomorrow, Jeremy Lin is going to share / testify on this important subject matter. This always makes for a worthwhile listening or worth listening or watching - and you know it.
09/25: Xtep is The Next Step in Shoe Evolution
Jeremy Lin: "And you know it" haha.
I'd certainly be up to buy some of them kicks.
Whether you agree or disagree with Jeremy Lin's decision (although my initial reaction was in disagreement), you have to respect his determination and confidence. It's unwavering and absolute - for any Asian-American personality in any industry, that is extremely important
in continued happiness and success. Never let any obstacles or injustices get in the way - there is always around it, by avoiding it.
If the past season is any indication, he appears fully healthy and sharper than ever.
09/13: Jeremy Lin to re-sign with the Ducks?
It is just a rumor or speculation at this point. But hell yeah - I would like to see Jeremy Lin win a championship with the Beijing Ducks. But it is his call.
He just got a citizenship over there, and the Ducks signed Li Muhao (with Lin's influence).
I find myself continuing to follow Jeremy Lin (not as much as before) - since there is nothing else going on in this drab society (other than what I am a fan or supporter of).
After getting battered and bruised throughout the season, let Jeremy Lin rest and relax for awhile. He already has millions of fans / supporters, business ventures, endorsements, etc.
I no longer think about his basketball future or his future in general - he'll know what to do.
Jeremy "Mr. Emoji" Lin haha.
08/09: From Jeremy Lin's Weibo
Here is an excerpt or snippet from Jeremy Lin's thoughts on his Weibo (Amen, Jeremy. Amen to that):
I heard and found about Jeremy Lin when he participated in Summer League years ago. Since then, I became a fan. But before that, he was already an accomplished and skilled basketball player with a lot of potential, helping the teams that he was on win. Regardless, he went unnoticed or went under the radar mostly because of his race. Whether you've been a fan since Jeremy's Palo Alto and Harvard days, or became a fan when Linsanity occurred,
it shouldn't matter. In the end, we support Jeremy Lin through both the good moments as well as the rough ones.
And what is important is that through all the adversities and obstacles, he always retains a positive spirit. Jeremy Lin is certainly a person I respect as both an NBA player and an individual. He is also an intriguing individual as well, outside of basketball.
It's good to know that there are fan sites out there for interesting thoughts. This is a personal fan page just to convey my thoughts and other interesting things as well.
