I mean, give the kid a break. He overcame a lot, and for a moment, he shined on one of the biggest stages of Pro-sports. Hey, look, no one has denied that he had an incredible run. But here's the thing, Jeremy Lin is one of the most overrated players in the NBA.
I have to agree with you on that one. Who knows what kind of season you'll have? Now that he's one of the leaders in this young team, but I'll tell you one thing. He's sadly not gonna be an All-Star kind of a player. I'm sorry to bring it to you all, but Linsanity is dead!
THE LAST PICK
Uh, yo, Big Joe.
Hey Guys! Uh...
Hoo! Hey guys, I made it. Hoo! I'm here. Let's do this.
Hey, Michael, pick me! I won't let you down.
Just give me a chance. I'm practicing a lot.
Not. Ah-ha-ha-ha. Isaac, buddy.
Go home, man. Hey, I told you to go home. Go home!
Hey, is this your ball?
You can have it.
It's alright. I already have one. Are you alright?
Leave me alone! Wait, are you...
What's wrong, man?
My brother stinks. He never picks me to play on his team. How can I be so short and so bad?
Well, you're young. You're gonna keep growing. Just try to get better everyday.
Man, I'm only eleven years old. I'm not trying to play in the NBA. I just wanna play basketball.
Alright, well, let's go play some basketball then. Let's see what you've got.
Alright, take the ball. Drive around me. Shoot the layup.
可惡!(Damn it! 的較文雅口語說法)
C'mon, he ain't that good!
You're like two feet taller than me.
I'm not gonna go easy on you. Let's go!
No. My brother was right. I'm not good enough.
Look, you're getting better. You're getting there. It's not about your brother. You don't do this for him. You do this for yourself, alright? C'mon, one more time.
That's right! Who's the boss? Who's the boss? Yeah!
Yeah. Ya! Uh-ha, Coach really thinks I can play college ball! Yeah, he said if I keep growing like Anthony Davis or...you know what I mean? Just because I'm fast, and I've got the foot work, and... Dude, can you imagine that? Dude, and then I'll get drafted. I might even move out this dump. Ya, man. Doesn't that sound good?
Jeremy: Hey buddy, hope your test went well. Remember to follow through when you shoot!
Yo, get outta here, little man. I don't have time to play with you.
One chance. That's all I want. One chance.
Alright, fine. But somebody gotta pick you first.
Ey, yo, who else wanna be captain?
I'll be captain.
Yo, it's Jeremy Lin. Oh, Shoot! Yo, it's Jeremy Lin!
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright... What's up, J! Welcome to my court.
Alright, since you're our guest, I'll let you have first pick.
I'll take...I'll take the little guy in the back.
Are you serious?
Alright, alright! Well, I got Scott.
Ok, let's go. Let's do it, little man.
Are you sure?
You're doubting I was gonna take anybody else? C'mon, man. We got this. Let's go!
You know I'm excited for this. We've waited all summer to see if Jeremy Lin can really do it. The undrafted Harvard graduate will be facing the Portland Trail Blazers in his home court debut as a Houston Rocket. Can he do it? Is Linsanity just a fad, or is it a real thing? We'll find out tonight.
With this third turn-over, Jeremy Lin is looking a bit rusty out there. C'mon Jeremy! And another shot missed by Lin. And there you have it folks. In a tough loss, the Houston Rockets fail to the Portland Trail Blazers 95 to 85. Jeremy Lin really had a disappointing performance. Maybe he left some of that magic dust in New York City.
Chris: You're young and you're going to keep growing. Just remember to keep getting better everyday.
THEREFORE ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER AND BUILD ONE ANOTHER UP. JUST AS YOU ARE DOING.
