There is this one very annoying guy who frequently makes senseless comments in the Yahoo! Sports page during Rockets games. He’s basically a hater of Jeremy Lin. So what he does is he sucks the balls of either Patrick Beverley or Isaiah Canaan. He’s pretty annoying. That’s all I can say. I am hoping that the Yahoo! Sports page will get rid of annoying commenters. But that’s just impossible. So I’ll just have to press those “thumbs down” icons more often.
I am an avid follower of Houston Rockets games as stated in my previous post. I don’t have the luxury of watching NBA day so I check out the games on Yahoo! Sports. One thing that’s been really bothering me is the barrage of Jeremy Lin hater comments in the game tracker page. Of course there will be “Lin only fan” comments that are equally annoying but the Lin haters have taken it to the next level. It seems like they are just trolling around just to piss off the “Lin only fans”. I am starting to wonder of those hate comments were created by only one jobless dude who’s got plenty of time to create multiple Yahoo! accounts. No one knows.
The title says it all. To all those guys saying that the starting point guard should be Patrick Beverly, they’re probably missing out some things. This is just my opinion. But I would like to emphasize the fact that Jeremy Lin is still better than Beverly. Lin only needs to work on his turnovers and be more aggressive on defense. Beverly still needs a lot of polishing.
Lin has better court vision. Lin is very good in pick and roll offense which is most likely the go-to play of Rockets with Dwight Howard around. Lin is a great back up scorer for Harden and he is over-all a better court leader. Beverly can scrap it out with other PG’s head-to-head. He’s a tough defender and a good rebounder. He’ll get in your face and he’s going to dive for hustle plays. That’s what Beverly is all about. But he’s definitely not a starting player caliber, YET. For now, let’s keep Lin in the starting line-up.
James Harden scored 46 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and made 6 assists to lead the Houston Rockets past the Oklahoma City Thunder, 122-119. Jeremy Lin added 29 points and 8 assists while Chandler Parsons chipped in 17 points and 6 boards.
Russell Westbrook score 28 points and made 10 assists for the Thunder while Kevin Durant was only limited to 16 points but managed to finish the game with a triple-double. Thabo Sefolosha also lead the scoring for Thunder contributing 28 points.
