When Jeremy Lin signed a three-year, $25.1 million contract with the Houston Rockets this offseason, speculation ran rampant about whether the overnight sensation could live up to his new deal.

So people have been saying that Jeremy Lin is not going to play as well this year as he did when he was part of the New York Knicks. Although he was a rookie earlier in the year, he had chemistry with the other players, like Landry Field, Steve Novak, Jared Jeffries, Iman Shumpet, and Toney Douglas. Yes, they aren't the biggest basketball stars out there, but they worked diligently as a team and rose the Knicks to fame. Now, Jeremy Lin has been receiving tons of pressure as to whether or not he'll do well in the Rockets. He was a great player during his high school and Harvard years, and he still played amazingly well when he joined the Knicks. So even if he is now part of the Houston Rockets, he has the skill and potential to rise even higher than he did before. The Rockets have also added several other new players but I believe they all have the potential to become stars as long as they keep their passion to the sport. I also believe the Rockets will rise as one of the most unique and skilled teams, leading all the new players to a bright future. As a sincere fan of Jeremy Lin, I wish for everyone to give him all your love and support and to always have a positive view for him and his future. I can't wait until October when the season starts so that I can cheer them on!

Get your facts straight. Jeremy Lin was born in Los Angeles and graduated from Harvard. Sadly, you are ignorant or stupid.

Unless he can produce a birth certificate that shows that he was born in America, I presume he was born in China, he looks Chinese not our stereotypical America who is white. I hope he does not influence our American players too much because being Chinese, he is a communist first, Taoist, Confucianist, Buddist and a small chance that he is a Christian. Obama our prez who is black had to produce a BC why shouldn't JL. In America whites are still the majority.

Racist, that's how the average typical American feels. I am sure if I was in China they would feel the same way about me.

If JL can play PG well this year, he will be fully accepted, BB should not have color barriers, it did not worked before and it will not work now.

Another drug cheat.

See.. African Americans start juicing in their teens and get used to it.. the feeling of "power/superiority/invinc ibility". So their confidence doesn't grow when entering the NBA, and in fact it drops when they learn everyone else juices.

But Lin on the other hand.. was just a typical good "little" Asian kid who never done drugs.. then was encouraged to use them by perhaps his trainer(s) or "team doctor".. and then felt the magical power of PEDs for the first time, felt like God, and made this nobody confident enough to take on the NBAs best and run circles around them without breaking a sweat.

But they didn't tell him that taking drugs won't make him immortal.. he pushed it too far.. and he got injured.

You are clueless.
You think these athletes who depend on their PERFORMANCE for MONEY, fame, championships, careers... don't use PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS?!
You think the teams/players don't have "team doctors" (drug suppliers) giving them drugs so they play at their very best at all times?

LOL @ your ignorance and stupidity.

You are from Australia, you do not know how strict and intolerant we are towards drugs. We don't use them, the few that do are the very very exceptions.
they say JL is not one of them.
