Kobe Bryant on Jeremy Lin: ‘I Don’t Even Know What He’s Done’

Linsanity may have hit New York City and the rest of the NBA, but Kobe Bryant has never heard of it. When asked about the Lakers’ showdown with the Knicks tonight, Kobe claimed to not be at all aware of the exploits of NYC’s new Harvard-bred point guard sensation Jeremy Lin. Jimmy Toscano of the New York Post has the story: “”What? No idea,’ Bryant said last night after the Lakers’ 88-87 overtime win over the Celtics. ‘I know who he is but I don’t really know what’s going on too much with them.’ Pressed further, Bryant said, ‘I don’t even know what he’s done. Like, I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I’ll take a look at [the tape] tonight though.’ … All Bryant could do was laugh when asked if he would cover Lin if need be—’I appreciate the question, though,’ he said before walking off to the shower.”

    I’m hoping the Lakers’ scouts don’t know much about Lin either for tonights game.

    Kobe on Raja Bell, who’s 2 years older: “I don’t know this kid. I don’t need to know this kid. I don’t want to. We go out there, we play the game and leave it at that. Maybe he wasn’t hugged enough as a kid. I look at him a little bit, he gets a little insecure or something. I don’t know.”

  • http://www.slamonline.com Nick Tha Quick

    Lol at all the sensitivity that will follow. Does it REALLY matter what Kobe thinks about Lin or that he fails to give him props for having 2-3 good games against really bad teams. We should all be livid that he totally snubbed Steve Novak too while we at it. At least he vaguely, very vaguely, recalls who Raja Bell is.

  • bike

    Wonder what a little trash talking between Kobe and Lin would sound like:
    Kobe:(after shaking hands)’Hey, they tell me you got a little game’.
    Lin: I have heard much about you oh Great Black Mamba. But you speak with forked tongue’.
    Kobe: ‘WTF does that mean? You dissing me or something?’

  • fruizm

    @bike…didn you try that joke already yesterday??? its not funny, man!! haha.

  • Dirtybird

    I heard the audio. Him saying “what” was kinda funny.

  • Fresh Boirdee

    @K Holiday… LMAO!! Lin is the flavor of the month… no disrespect, but ever since Yao Ming retired, the NBA has been looking for the next “Asian Sensation” to market the NBA in China. The NBA is always looking for the next “Great White Hope” to replace Larry Bird, the “Heir Apparent” to replace Jordan, etc, etc. The NBA needs their “Tokens” to market their product to their respective demographics, welcome to the real game Lin.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Philo. People with people decent is who Kobe clowns on. He doth not giveth even half a f*ck.

  • T-Money

    that was a polite way of saying that he doesn’t give a eff about an undrafted point guard having three good games in a row – and neither should he.

  • Dungeon Family

    I don’t think Kobe watches Knicks Basketball….The Knicks don’t really watch Knicks Basketball

  • tomtom

    Here comes the Kobehate lmao so pathetic, I think u need to realize that the guy has been.playing a ridiculous compacted schedule. If he had time to browse the top tens and watch the ‘linsanity’ highlights he wouldn’t be doing his job.

  • http://Slamonline.com bike

    Something tells me tonight is going to be the end of Lin’s joyride.

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    As much as I’d LOVE to see a Kobe vs Lin showdown (for the lol’s) it’s not gonna happen. Lin will put up 14-6 on 5-17 shooting.

    Bike, what the hell was that dialogue between Kobe and Lin?
    Why would a Harvard graduate who was raised in America speak like that? Come on man, you’re better than that.

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    Kobe must not like someone getting attention other than himself. So much arrogance with this guy.

  • ab40

    Lakers are a top 5 defense and have better players at every position. I’m gonna watch and I don’t expect anything fancy out of the amare/melo less Knicks.

  • vctmac

    lin wnt do much tonight, hes very good pg who does abit of everything. i think his hustle and heart is what gives him a flip side to all these pgs. he wants it , not to say others dnt, but i like to see a rookie with passion. as for his descent it dnt matter, he ball well and hes starting for NY knicks! an accomplishment for him indeed, but kobe dnt need to ackonwledge him jus cause hes earned a starting spot or is holdign the 1 spot dwn well lol.

  • jacuuli

    @ Da-Meat-Hook That’s exactly what I was thinking. It will be funny if Lin drops about 30 points on the Lakers.

  • shutup

    I think Lin will do fine tonight LA’s guard play has been subpar all year, I expect a solid game out of Lin @allenp just because he went to Harvard and was raised in America doesnt mean he wouldnt have an accent or speak with idiosyncrasies normally associated with that culture. This comment by Bike was tame by comparison and actually pretty funny, is it wrong to have visioned that dialog before some samurai showdown intro?? IPPON SOMO SOMO. @datkid do you ever have an original thought??? its like your one of allen’s pub!c hairs.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Or maybe Kobe, like a lot of the NBA, doesn’t watch other teams play. Especially the Knicks. Carry On.

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    @ab40. I’d argue that Lin > Fisher. But whatever, Knicks will probably still lose this one.

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    shut up how often do you think about allenp’s pubes? must be a lot I’m guessing. I’m really not interested in discussing another man’s genitals like you and orange are you gotta take that sh*t some somewhere else.

  • shutup

    wow your so basic in your form of insulting people, is that your first thought to jump to the g@y defense? Freud would have a field day with you, how do you know I’m not g@y, and if I were would it be wrong to think about your delicious pinky of a c%^k? go put on your allenp underoos and grab your nbk teddy bear and go crawl in bed with your mother, maybe she wont deny you the teet this time…..


    SMH, we’ll have BIGGER FISH To FRY come real season, than worrying about what some attention whore shooting guard with a lot of miles on his knees says. Didn’t Kobe’s team have homecourt in the 2nd round, and still get swept by the Mavs? That’s right….Kobe’s ego is the Laker stopper.

  • http://facebook.com/tronjohnson Chief

    What has he done? Maybe a week of good play from the point? I mean D’Antoni has something to work with now but I’m glad to hear that someone isn’t riding social media’s schlong all the time. Kobe is old guard and you gotta love that.

  • http://Slamonline.com bike

    @Allenp. He wouldn’t. Unless he was trash talking. Mocking his Mamba nickname. Seriously, no harm meant. I was shaking the bushes and seeing if I could flush out that other bike – that nefarious troll!

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Typically, Americans raised in America who attend Ivy League schools don’t speak like bad kung fu movies. No matter what race or culture they are from.
    I think you know that. If cats laughed, they laughed. Everybody decides what’s funny to them.

    i don’t understand it. does that mean Lin and Chewbacca?
    i wish i can witness Chewbacca dunking…

  • shutup

    @allen it was a satire not really racist, and Kobes self proclaimed black Mamba title adds to the humor in it. and when you say typically its an assumption, how many asian american ivy league attendees have you been around? I just say that because I used to play at the Cole center when I attended NYU and one my favorite pastimes was watching kung-fu movies with my history of international film class and then we would all be running around flicking pennies at each other and mimicking the dialog while we played ball, Asians included (btw son of shaolin, Iron Monkey, and Drunken Master are all dope)

  • Dungeon Family

    @IAMORANGE4EVER……..Feelings Hurt Much?

    Knicks ain’t won a title since The Watergate Scandal which was 73

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    I used to work with one. Met a few others. Being that they were raised in America and around American accents their entire lives, they spoke like all other Americans.
    Some of them could code switch and speak with an accent or in a different language like many other people who are raised in immigrant families. Hell, I don’t even know if Lin is raised by an immigrant family, his parents might have been born in the US too.
    Anyway, different people have different types of humor. All humor I laugh at will not be funny to everyone else. I think that is a little strange to think that Lin would speak in a particular accent because he’s Asian. It hearkens back to all the horrible stereotypes about Asians that are in the same vein as stereotypes about black folks and how we all speak.
    But, I am not trying to argue with folks, just trying to convince cats to think about things from a different perspective. In order for that joke to be funny, it has to be rooted in the idea that Lin would speak that way simply because he’s Asian. Why do we believe that?

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    But the big news is, Ivan Johnson doesn’t even know who Kobe Bryant is!
    Now that’s bad a$$ Kobe.

  • OTB

    If you guys actually saw the video of this conversation, you’d notice that Kobe genuinely had no idea who Lin was since he hadn’t watched game tape yet. He was actually asking reporters what he’s done. I’m sure he’ll see who he is tonight.

  • davidR

    OTB, nobody cares about context!

  • OTB

    I come from Toronto, where there is a large asian population. I have quite a bit of Asian friends. I have yet to meet one Asian person I know who GREW UP HERE and attended university that still speaks with an accent. It doesn’t happen.

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    LakeShow, you’re becoming a walking joke right now. I got angry at Bike, who has made constant racially incentive comments about black and asians on this board all the damn time, from using the joke yesterday. You’re going to stick up for him? Really? Just to shove it to Allen? Try having your own damn opinion, son.

  • http://Www.slamonline.com TADOne

    Kobe seems to be a very self-centered….type of a human being….arrogant….egoist….Jeremy Lin is a college graduate (Harvard)….kobe is a high school graduate….imaturity?

    got to grow u

  • http://twitter.com/KingAkai Alpha-bet

    Why are they asking a 5 time NBA Champion, future hall of farmer about a guy who had a couple good games on a bad team, playing against even worse teams?

  • shutup

    I have no clue about Lins backround but having been around copious asian americans- thats what will happen if you go to a gifted school in NYC, I will use my first GF’s mother as an example, moved to the states as a teenager went to school here earned a masters degree and still mispronounced some words, the accent really showed itself when she got upset, like when I got her daughter pregnant, lol. just kidding. But my experience with Asian American culture is more extensive than most, btw I have played in many all Asian tournaments from ones held at the Y at grand street to the annual tournament at RPI, fun fact many of these tournaments only allow one non-asian on each team, and require proof of asian ancestry otherwise.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Who’s opinion am I agreeing with? lol. Pretty sure i’m on a boat. It just wasn’t anything that big of a deal at all. What did he imply? That Lin would have an accent. Wow, so offensive. Get over yourselves and your insecurities. My Asian friends would have been the first to laugh at that “joke.” Yes, college graduated, english speaking, no accent, adult, Asian, men, and women, would not be offended by implying an Asian person would have an Asian accent.

  • Paul H

    I think this solves this ridiculous debate:


  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    shut up you should just accept that your gay and in love with a man on the internet. after that comment you CANT not be. You might also be in love with your mother. Someday you’ll learn how pathetic it looks to constantly jock another man on the internet, and then try to harass him for having an opinion. Now go elsewhere and let NBK make you look stupid for the millionth time in a row.

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    LakeShow: He implied that a Harvard educated Asian “AMERICAN” would speak not only with an accent, but used corny, pseudo-racial terms like Kobe having a “forked tongue.”
    Was it THAT terrible? No, it’s just one of those off-colored jokes your friend would make that you’d pretend to laugh at but in reality, you just want to change the conversation from there. But Bike pretty much makes these off-color jokes every day. I know you’re around here to see that. He called the Wizards a bunch of apes a while ago. So stop being the first one to defend him because Allen rightfully took offense to it.
    And stop it with the “your asian friend would be the first person to laugh at that joke” bullsh*t. I’ve heard you use that before. You don’t know how your friends would act, they ain’t here to tell you that.

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    And what’s this insecurity nonsense? You feel secure because you can laugh at a racist joke? Good for you, buddy.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    How is saying that Kobe,(THE BLACK MAMBA™) speaks with a “forked tongue” a negative Asian stereotype? I have never heard of an Asian person saying that anymore than a black person, or white person so on… He implied he would have an Asian accent. That’s not offensive. Maybe bad taste. But racist? Offensive? Nawww, but who am I to decide. I didn’t laugh. It wasn’t a funny joke. Any who carry on.

  • http://sdjfklf.com Jukai

    Million dollar question: why was it in bad taste if it’s not racist or offensive?
    Good luck trying to find a way to answer through the hole you just dug.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Because bad taste is up to YOU to determine if YOU think it is or is not of “bad taste.” Racism is just racism. That joke was of bad taste to you it sounds like. It was not to others. Racist to none. Peace buddee.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    I’m going to forgo the whole “is Bike too racist” argument even though I’m Taiwanese. Kobe not knowing what Lin has accomplished this past week is normal, especially since he’s in the league and has had games for 4 out of the last 5 days. People getting bent out of shape that he doesn’t know what Lin has accomplished IS weird, especially since most of you weren’t keeping tabs on Lin yourself, at least not before he averaged 25 and 8 for three games. I’m so excited about tonights game that I DVR’d it since I’m working too late to watch it. But if Lin wasn’t having a great week, I wouldn’t have even bothered to watch the highlights to a Melo/Stat-less Knicks vs Lakers game. Stop getting mad that Kobe is arrogant – either you’re late to the party or you’re butt-hurt he doesn’t think Lin is as good as you do.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    Actually, I take that back. If you’re surprised that Bike would’ve said something that could be considered racist, you probably would be surprised that Kobe said something that could be considered arrogant.

  • shutup

    your so cute datkid, your man crush on allen and nbk is evident to all that read here, and I have my opinion despite it being against popular opinion, I have a mind of my own, you on the other hand not so much you cosign and jock these men like a jilted stalker and it always seems like your the first one to try to label someone as gay, are you covering something up? I know it must be hard but im sure you wont be judged to harshly if you just come out the closet, and I understand its hard to come up with original material when youve just been spoon fed your opinion but the whole in love with your mother thing is what i was alluding to about Freud ask Allen or NBK to explain it to you.

  • robb

    Kobe’s just messing around, of course he knows who he is, but enjoys doing that kind of stuff. Remember the finals against the Celtics? (the second one) Every reporter was asking him how important was to beat the Celtics in the Finals and he said “It’s not important at all” when they defeated them he said: “I was lying of course it was important”. It’s his game before the game

    is it safe to say this kid is here to stay? dunno how long he can keep this pace up, but he has a promising future.

    So, it goes like this for Kobe;
    Larry Hughes – 40pts
    Allan Houston – 53pts
    Ray Allen – sets record in Kobe’s house
    The King – parades through L.A. with his calvary leading up to “Decisiongate”
    Jeremy Lin – T.B.A.

  • http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=pawtucketymca Gametimeweezy

    How many of those guys are/were Hall of Fame material?
    How about all stars?
    Hell, Hughes is virtually the same age, no real injury history, and is basically washed out of The League.
    Lin wasn’t even drafted.
    Which leads me to contemplate that Kobe Bean Bryant, Joe Bryant Jr., The self proclaimed Black Mamba himself, is overrated.
    He is a product of politics, and he acts like it.
    More than The King does.

  • DW44

    34 Points and counting.. Plus it looks like he is going to come up with the Dub!

  • Ken

    That “30 and 10″ comment was pretty prescient. And yeah, Kobe shot around 33% tonight, and was outscored by Lin, so he should know now who he is.

  • BBaller

    The Lakers should try to trade for Lin, then Kobe can really get to know him. 38 points, this should make people stop with the doubt. 38 points is impressive even if it’s after 5 games or 500.

    Say my name like destinys children , biotch

  • startown

    Not taking anything away from the guy but it will probably be his career high, how many point guards get 38 points in a game, and their two best players were out, so he put up a lot of shots.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Dude, he put up 22 shots. That’s not much at all. Unlike Kobe, who shot close to 30 time yet scored less than Lin. Say my name, say my name.

    38 @ MSG @ 3rd start…@one of the greatest player… Still fairytale story even if he has to stop playing today. Got a lot story to his grandchild later

We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but be reasonable…no amare, no melo..no problem..Jeremy Lin has single handedly brought team basketball back to this formerly lost ny squad that is constantly under pressure by its fans…(they had it for a little before melo came) Remember when melo was almost in tears when the Knicks couldnt figure out what to do. Everyone is waiting for Jeremy to have a subpar or terrible game just so they can bring him down….but he’s doing things that have never been done from a guy that was at the end of the bench. His stock is only rising.You are blind to think that he hasn’t proved anything yet. This team is still Melos and amares, but you best believe this team is a going to dominate now that Lin is on the scene. Amare will start playing the way he did in Phoenix cause Lin will find him the way Nash did. Chandler will be feared on the pick and roll. The double team is now eliminated because Lin and melo can score at will. Fields, shumpert will play with confidence. The bench will be utilized to its full extent. Steve novaks career has been resurrected because of Lin. The options are there now because the Knicks finally can put the ball in someone’s hands that create in such a simple system with many options. D’Antoni is an excellent coach, he just needed a point guard like Nash.

    Congrats to you Knicks fans…I’m a lakers fan, but r.i.p lakers (unless u make an epic trade)

    This comment section had to explode after this game.
    Lin is hungry and competitive. I like it.
    Sorry Kobe.

  • ChipS

    What I find funny, is that people haven’t given Melo a chance to show he can play with Lin. The Knicks started getting it together before Lin. The two losses to Chi and Bos, Melo moved the ball and guys missed their shots. It won’t be the first time Melo played with a good point guard, Billups,Iverson, and Andre Miller who Lin reminds me of, just more athletic and doesn’t post. When you take a natural scorer like Melo and tell him to run the offense, the ball is going to stick. He’s a SCORER not a Point Forward. The media and the fans don’t realize that. It’s like telling a running back go play quarterback. All the talk about Amare needing a point guard, Melo needed one too, and now they got one. Knicks will be fine, Lin won’t put up 25-30 points a game but 12-15 with a couple more assists.

    LOL AT that NAZI bike , leave your whack style home coz here you wont be needing it + Jeremy Lin just gave the Mamba a little taste of what Shaq was offering. Lovin it. NBA where the truth always comes out happens.

  • Rik Smits Mullet

    lin putting up nba2k12 numbers lol nice stuff.
    Why are people referring to him as a rookie, he played last year for the warriors so that makes him a sophomore. But that are just details. Iam no knicks fan but hope this guy can keep it up. Also kobe fantasy beef to make his games more interesting and make him look more legendary are making him look foolish.
    Also swap melo for lin in the all star game. Lol

  • MikeC.

    And if you don’t know, now you know…

    I just hope he can get the turnovers under control.

  • Yesse

    I’m sure he will remember who he is now, lol.

  • DeeDre

    These are the list of excuses that people will give if Lin plays well against the following treams:

    Bulls- they didn’t have Rose to guard him or the Bulls isn’t as solid defensively as when Bogans was starting

    OKC- he did it against a mediocre defensive Thunder team and Westbrook isn’t known for that

    Heat- “insert bogus excuse here” just wait till the playoffs!

    Celtics- the Celtics are old man, Rondo can’t do everything (this coming from a Celtics fan)

    Mavs- JKidd isn’t the player he used to be so he has trouble guarding him, and their overall defense has gotten soft since Chandler left

    Pacers- they’re a young team with no real guard play, not a surprise. You guys are overreacting

    Lakers- “insert bogus excuse about how Pau played too soft and how they need to trade Fisher here” just wait till the playoffs!

    oh I jock them? shut up your only reason for commenting on this site is to try and prove nbk and allenp wrong, you wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for them.

    38 points later, Lin: You’re welcome.

  • Ldub

    Of course it would come down to everyone blowing up. But how many times did KOBE actually guard Lin last night? I can only recall a few (will have to go back and watch the game), but Lin passed every time I saw him with KB on him. And how many times did Lin guard KB last night? Its not a typical KB vs Lin matchup…and all the posts after the game seem to be favoring Lin. IDK. Kid has played 4 great games. If he can keep this up for 13 seasons, then he is worth talking about. And someone did mention Melo and Stat were both out. How many shots is Lin going to get with them 2 back in the lineup? I HIGHLY doubt it will be enough to drop 30. Unless he gets to the line.

  • Lintendo

    NYK should trade TRADE Davis to Miami<3 before Trade Deadline ends or else… they don't need Davis but there so much troubles ahead when Davis, Melo and Stoud return…

  • shutup

    you show your ignorance more and more, I could give two sh!ts about proving anyone wrong, but I wont back down from a debate, Im pretty sure thats why these comment sections are here, and if anyone is the troll its you , your a nuthugger a comment jockey and its kinda sad. are you just gonna keep taking my comments and trying to retype them? You have no idea what I understand, I should have realized your a simpleton by the use of dat in your name, and why do you keep bringing up orange? secretly wanting him to reply to you? do you miss him? and heres a little psychoanalysis for you, your use of “we’ll” when refering to slamonline shows that you think you have visions of grandeur and an inflated ego. whens the last time you made a comment that fueled a discussion? besides calling someone gay, which I’m not, not that I would be ashamed of it if I were. one last point, whens the last time allen or nbk cosigned something you said? think about it…..so sad

  • shutup

    and just for the record I find it offensive that you continue to try and use gay as an insult, the nba released a commercial about this…”not, cool. Not in my house” lol. having played basketball in one of the best pickup courts in america for 15 years (West 4th NYC)which is also located in the Village btw I have had the chance to meet many people of different lifestyles and there sexual orientation was never an issue for me, I’m secure enough in my manhood, thank you very much. I think its time for DATKID to GROWUP.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85Bl3GRdULQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player 1982

    Click my name for Kobe’s response when a reporter asked if he had any tips for Jeremy Lin post game. It’s less than 20 seconds long, but it’s priceless.

  • hugo

    if he keeps this up for 13 seasons hes worth talking about?? if he plays like he did the last 4 games for 13 seasons hes gonna be the best knick ever man wtf u sayin?


    This thread has been so entertaining. So much hate/love in it. Move over TNT, “we know drama.”

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    you don’t care about proving them wrong shutup? your username when you first got on here was shutupallenp you wanted our attention and to finally prove the man you were obsessed was wrong. don’t deny it. Stop projecting your own comment jockey ways on me. I listen to nbk and allenp for the same reason we all do. They’re generally right about a lot of things, and you can learn a lot from them. I don’t care if they cosign me That’s completely different from you perusing and making yourself crazy over their every comment and if you can’t see that your more of a fool then nbk could ever make you look like. My name is my name son. don’t wear it out. and I brought up orange bc you guys are sad similarly pathetic trolls. Orange wasn’t always like this tho. He was cooler before.

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    I don’t care what you find offensive shutup. Is it wrong for me to say your gay? yes. But it’s hard not to make fun of your weird obsession with commenters on this site. Your creepy obsessions and sexual orientation aside nobody with any real manhood to be secure in cares so much about people he’s talking about basketball on the internet with… sh*t I sure don’t. and the more you say i’m a comment jockey only proves my point about you projecting your insecurities about slurping certain commenters onto me. but cook on tho. I’m done.

  • http://bulls.com airs

    Sorry datkid, but speak for yourself. We all don’t agree with nbk and allenp.
    But yeah, quit with the gay stuff, its not helping prove any points you’re trying to make.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher


  • shutup

    Wanted OUR attention? the way WE all do? you sound like a a kid trying so hard to be down. I’m a grown a$$ man, I have my own view on life and opinions about things, already hashed the name out thing, it wasnt to prove anybody wrong but to call allenp on his pompousness which during the lockout I felt was on full display, since then Ive moved on and removed his name out of respect; but I still call it like I see it, despite what opinions others might have. If you want other people thinking for you so be it. You bring these guys names up like they validate your existence, but really all your are is a lil b!tchmaden!$$a , f%^k your name it dont carry no weight anywhere, I hope your not a d!ckrider in real life, were you the equipment manager for your school or like a male cheeleader? You calling me gay doesnt offend me, you using gay like its an insult offends me, some of the smartest hard working people I know are gay and btw some of the best female ball players on the planet are gay, try to wrap your mind around that one, I’m out, gonna go watch Ellen….

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    I’m not saying I agree with them all the time. I obviously disagree with them as I JUST did on the post up you read airs. all I’m saying is that both have proved that they’re good knowledgeable people. who I again think people can learn from.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    Lakers do know who he is now. Fisher and Blake made Lin look like the second coming of Zeke. Its sad to see a guy who was cut twice, I felt Lakers should have give a chance kill my team. Lin played well and I give him the credit. He can play, but when Melo and Amare get back, the ball will stop and Lin numbers will go down. The Knicks should offer melo for Howard or Joe Johnson or even Josh Smith. I am a fan of Melo, but he is J.R. Smith older brother. BOOK IT!!

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    shut up your a b*tch. you removed his name out of yours bc people took nothing you said seriously (and btw we still don’t) and bc everyone wanted you gone. if nobody had said anything about it you’d still be doing just what you were then. Nobody thinks for me, but hey, I listen to people and there is nothing wrong with that. People have earned my respect. you haven’t. In fact nobody on this forum respects you, so really your name doesn’t hold weight. even online I can tell you weak as Sh*t f*ckboy….. you f*ckn*gga stop all the grown man bullsh*t real men don’t constantly start arguments online. and you gon stop acting like your all politically correct all the time too like you didn’t say some terrible things about nbk’s half-black kid(s) I knew when you brought his family into sh*t that you were some oversensitive bitter b*tchmade @ss n*gga. You disgust me you worthless troll.

    lolololololol emotional much? still talking in groupthink? I removed his name because I wanted to, I dont run my life according to what people find acceptable. You wanna take what I said about NBK’s kid out of context so be it, but obv he has taken heed because now he speaks out about racism even if its just an undertone. At first I would only comment when I was offended by something people said, but since then I stopped trying to be the racial policeman, even though it still bothers me. and get the idea that I wanna earn your respect outta your mind, who are you and why would I care? you got roasted on the other postup today, see what happens when you venture out on your own? stay in the nice cozy nest of of allens and nbk pubes and youll be ok. oh and i understand it has a na on the end of it but calling me a f*ckn*gga- makes you look like a racist.

    oh so calling you a f*ckn*gga makes me look racist? But you JUST NOW called me a B*tchmaden*gga you idiot. and I’m black too dumb@ss so i’ll say whatever I want. Stop lying. You run your life on attention little man, which I’m done giving you. He would speak out about racism regardless of whatever irrelevant and retarded thing you said. I never said you wanted to earn my respect. and saying weird ish like “your in allenp’s pubes” is exactly how and why I just roasted you about being gay. learn from your mistakes B*tch@ssn*gga…. I’d say quit while your ahead but your so far behind at this point that bowing out now, when you still have a shred of dignity is your only real option. And just bc you were a male cheerleader all through high school doesn’t mean I was. Troll elsewhere homie.

  • http://slamonline.com. datkid

    oh and I got roasted on the post up today shutup? are you high? you clearly can’t read or think correctly. learn to do those things then come back and debate me.

  • BBaller

    @datkid even though you say you are black doesn’t entitle you to say the n word in a derogatory way,it comes across RACIST @shutup i cannot saying you are winning this little debate but you sound slightly more dignified than datkid.To both of you , this post is about Kobe who not at the time recognised who J.Lin is or what he has done, can you both agree J.Lin is now a competent player in the NBA today. Quit with the insults ( datkid never call someone gay and don’t pretend it’s not an insult from your behalf.. you look stupid)as neither person is winning but the edge is with shutup, the 4:49pm from datkid buried himself.
