Jeremy Lin teaches us to how fit-in in the NBA.
In South Africa, Rugby is a religion. For Japan to pull off a victory would require a miracle. So was the final outcome miraculous?
Joseph Lin signed a two year contract to play overseas for the Taiwan team Fubon Braves. JoeLin played college basketball as a point guard at Pennsylvania’s Hamilton College. He graduated this year.
I went to the Braves’ website to check out the roaster and I swear the coaching staff looks like the Chinese Mafia… LOL. BTW, JoeLin isn’t on the site yet. None the less, congrats! Two pro basketball players from one Asian-American family is a FIRST! And it won’t be the last! Mark my word!
The Staples Center promised fans free Jack In The Box tacos if the Lakers scored 100 points or more against the Orlando Magics. Lin hits the 3 pointer at the last minute which brought the Lakers to a final score of 101.
Side note, Lin secured the win for the team in the 4th and led the team in scoring. Hop, step and skip on my brother.
This may or may not be a good thing for Lin. In-depth review and analysis by Paul F. Villarreal the number #1 Jeremy Lin expert on YouTube.
This is painful to watch.
Some people see a commercial for Yeo’s. Some people see a message about celebrating every victory in life, no matter how small of a victory it is. All I see is KevJumba’s long lost brother.
Lin made plays and drew up a play in a tough game against the Blazers that went into overtime. The Rockets won, with Lin scoring 26 points and having zero turn overs. I see a future NBA head coach in the works lol! I’ve included video highlights of the game in this post.
This is the year to be cheerful, skillful, witty, and being prudent with your money.
This years winner is Li Na of China, winning over Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. And just in case you have no idea what the Australian Open is, the Australian Open is a major tennis tournament held annually over the last fortnight (A fortnight is a unit of time equal to 14 days or 2 weeks) of January in Melbourne, Australia.
The four Grand Slam tournaments (also referred to as the “Majors”) are especially popular: the Australian Open played on hard courts, the French Open played on red clay courts, Wimbledon played on grass courts, and the US Open played also on hard courts.

for those of you who have no idea what LINSANITY is, for those of you who missed out back in 2012, this post is for you! i will provide as many links and videos in this post as i can, and i will break things down in true shonblog fashion. it’s never too late to catch up, and it’s not too late to relive the moment. so let’s do it.
those of you who followed jeremy around the time of the summer league (july 2010), i’m talking about the game against the #1 draft pick, john wall… knew that we were watching something special. it was in your face poof that there can be a star NBA player of high caliber and of asian-american background. it was only a matter of time and it was about damn time.
(pause) i won’t focus too much on how much of a roller coaster ride it was for jeremy in this post. if you think you have ups and downs in your life, you have no idea… imagine being at the absolute top, being hailed as greatest in your profession by people, the media and experts because you made history and broke records set by other who are regarded as the best, simultaneously, imagine having people who’s sole purpose in life was to watch you fail, they made it their job to make sure you tripped and fell at every opportunity…. imagine every little mistake you make on the job and off, then have those mistakes blown out of proportions and used against you, to down play your success and achievements or even to say that they were a fluke… you see why i don’t want to go into this topic? just go watch the movie! i want to focus purely on the hype and excitement.
flash forward to february 4th 2012….i still have hd recordings of the game (knicks vs. nets) where Jeremy earned his NBA contract! there was no doubt that Lin was going to be cut from the knicks, BUT then he got his opportunity, he got his chance to get what he wanted the most in life. since basketball is jeremy’s life, he was essentially fighting for his life in this game but what was special was, he was smiling and having the time of his life. it was as if everyone could relate to him on another level, as if we could feel his pain, his struggles..
after three consecutive wins, Lin was the headline for the game against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on 2/10/12. This was the game that changed everything. If you didn’t know who Jeremy Lin was at that point in time, you had a friend that did.
“He’s the toast of New York…” as if scoring 38 points against Kobe wasn’t enough, a few days later, this happened…
but that was linsanity 2012… who knows what the future will hold.
Whether or not you want to call playing video games a sport and the gamers athletes, the gears have been turning to make professional gamers athletes at the legal level since July 2013. Five months later, we have our first gamers to obtain such recognition, Kim “Violet” Dong Hwan, a 23-year-old South Korean StarCraft player, followed by League of Legend star Danny “Shiphtur” Le of Canada.
What does this mean for gamers? International gamer gamers are now able to obtain P-1A visas which will allow them to live, compete, and earn a salary in the United States for at least the next five years. In the bigger picture, the sky is the limit for games and gamers everywhere! Look at it this way, waaaaay back when, people kicked spherical objects around with one another for fun, then they made up rules and made it a game, then they called it fulball/soccer and before you know it, the game became legally recognized as a sport and the players athletes. Same thing here with games, I’m just saying….
Sometimes you just have to read between the lines. It’s not about the positive things people say or the negative things. It’s about what you see and and what you hear with your own eyes and ears. It’s about taking it all in and drawing your own conclusions.

HI All, Sorry if some of you have seen my comments about the Knicks game before, but I have been asked to post my courtside observations again because people missed my previous comments. It was an amazing game. When Lin made his entrance on to the court, fans at the Garden cheered (though in traditional NBA style, they booed him during free throws). Although most people around us were cheering for the Knicks, people admitted they wished Lin success and that he was back at the knicks. Lin seemed very subdued when the game began.He had just come off a 48 min game the night before. He gained momentum and exploded in the 3rd and 4th quarters. I had seen several Rox games last season and witnessed coaches yelling at Lin, that was not the case last night. They let him play, and he was confident. His team mates obeyed when Jeremy called a play, and even Harden passed the ball to Jeremy on occasion. Parsons was the one exception, hogging the ball and ignoring Jeremy constantly. Jeremy and Amare hugged it out, and spent time laughing and talking. After the game, Jeremy came over to us for high fives and pics. My kids were decked out in J Lin jerseys and Lin said” Hey, nice shirts!” He took the bracelets off his arms and gave them to my boys. The bracelets say “In Jesus name I play”. What an inspiration! My son has his first game of his first team tomorrow, he will wear that bracelet. Jeremy is so much more than a gifted athlete and a spiritually beautiful person, he is a wonderful role model and a testament to the American ideal that hard work, perseverance and faith will bring fulfillment in life.
