Jeremy Lin: Working on my jump shot is job one this summer

In a post on his official website, Jeremy Lin told his fans that his training emphasis this off-season will be shooting, shooting and more shooting. "So this summer, my number 1 priority by far is my jump shot. Working on all types of jump shots: catch-and-shoot 3's, off-the-dribble 3's, mid-range jumpers, iso jumpers. I've always had a knack for attacking the rim, finishing or getting to the free throw line, but if I am able to really consistently hit shots from the outside, it would take my game to a whole new level." Lin even revealed that it's not just practice, practice, practice....

Hive Talk Live: Should we expect Kemba to raise his game again?

It will be tough for Kemba to improve off his career year, but he may need to if he wants to get an All Star nod. The Hornets had to replace their depth at point guard after the departure of Jeremy Lin and they did so by adding two familiar faces in Ramon Sessions and Brian Roberts. They will be backing up Kemba Walker who is coming off a career year...just short of an All Star year. Nick Denning profiles the suddenly shaky point guard position in the first of five depth chart breakdowns. PLUS! HTL Correspondent Dustin Phifer drops by with the most important numbers from the Hornets NBA...

Kemba Walker, Nic Batum on loss of Jeremy Lin

Think the loss of Jeremy Lin wasn't much of a loss for the Charlotte Hornets? The Hornets had eight free agents at the end of last season.  They kept their big name, Nicolas Batum, but lost three others: Al Jefferson to the Pacers, Courtney Lee to the Knicks and Jeremy Lin , of course to the Nets. As Kemba Walker told the Charlotte Observer, "it sucks" for the Hornets.  He also said the loss of Lin presented him with mixed feelings. "I hate to see him go, but at the same time I’m definitely happy for him," Walker said. "He deserves to be a starter in this league. He’s such a great...

Here's their take on the starters and where the Nets rank... PROJECTED LINEUP: Jeremy Lin, Bojan Bogdanovic, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Luis Scola, Brook Lopez Everyone wants a sequel to Linsanity, and Lin is a better all-around player than he was when he broke out in 2012 with the Knicks. The...

NetsDaily Off-Season Report No. 16

The week was a bit newsy. Three undrafted college players were given partially guaranteed deals. Greivis Vasquez decided after talking to the Nets and his surgeon, Dr. Martin O'Malley, that he would drop out of the Olympics. Then, there was Jeremy Lin's Space Jam parody which as of last count, had three million views on YouTube. Roster math The Nets signed three undrafted college players to training camp contracts this week.  Officially, the deals are the same NBA standard contracts veterans and draft picks sign, except that the salaries -- $543,471 in all three cases -- are not fully...

For a lot of Asian Americans, Brook-Lin is a cultural phenomenon. Ask the Fung Bros.

The Fung Bros are a trio of rappers and comedians who focus on Asian-American topics.  They have a thriving YouTube channel and a TV show on A&E Network's FYI channel entitled "Broke Bites: What The Fung?!" So when Jeremy Lin, one of their favorite topics, signed with the Nets, it was only a matter of time before they produced a video -- nearly 10 minutes long-- on how Lin will "save New York again."  Some of it is laugh-out-loud funny, but all of it deals with the effect Lin has had  and will have on New York and the Asian-American culture in the U.S. There are also suggestions about how...

Jeremy Lin’s oddball version of ‘Space Jam’: Your move, LeBron

Michael Jordan. LeBron James. Jeremy Lin? The new Nets point guard – and social media icon – joined that list when he took the starring role in a “Space Jam 3” video. And it’s comedy gold. James is set to star in a big-screen “Space Jam 2.” Lin beat him to it by creating the...
