Brooklyn Nets start promoting Jeremy Lin to New York's Chinese and Chinese-American community

That didn't take long. Nets reps were in Flushing Tuesday to promote Jeremy Lin's arrival in New York, meeting with local community leaders and explaining what the arrival of Jeremy Lin means for the Nets and New York's Chinese and Chinese-American communities. There are 570,000 New Yorkers with Chinese or Taiwanese heritage and 200,000 of them live in Brooklyn.  Flushing hosts one of the city's biggest Asian communities. Joe Grande, Senior Account Manager for Group Sales at the Nets was on hand. He told NTDTV, a local Chinese language TV station, "We went all in on Jeremy Lin and we would...

Jeremy Lin opens up to J. J. Redick about basketball, life and Kenny Atkinson

On Wednesday,  in between the press conference and Open House, Jeremy Lin talked by phone with J.J. Redick, who in addition to playing shooting guard for the Clippers is an interviewer (and quite the good one) at Adrian Wojnarowski's "The Vertical." Lin talked about a lot of things, everything from his faith to his hair, but for Nets fans, the big takeaway has to be what a big deal Kenny Atkinson is to him ... and the main reason why he signed the three-year, $36 million free agent deal with Brooklyn. "If there had been no Kenny there, I would not have come even close to considering...

Jeremy Lin fan helps him make money off Brooklyn move

The proud owner of the trademark “Linsanity” has applied to expand his portfolio. A quick-thinking Jeremy Lin fan filed for the trademark “Brook-Lin” on July 1, following Lin’s signing with the Nets, and subsequently transferred it to Lin, according to NetsDaily. The pending application on the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website says the term “Brook-Lin”...

Is Jeremy Lin trademarking "Brook-Lin?"

During LinSanity four years ago, two people not named Jeremy Lin sought trademark protection for the phenomenon. Using his Washington, D.C. law firm, Arent Fox, Lin ultimately won the right to use "LinSanity" as his own, stopping others from making money off his name. As Darren Rovell, ESPN's sports business reporter noted in April, it took a while. More than four years after he first filed for it, Jeremy Lin was granted the trademark to "Linsanity" just 53 days ago. — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) April 24, 2016 That won't happen again. According to records on file at the U.S....

Jeremy Lin on Nets, Knicks, fans, racism and everything else

Jeremy Lin gets the Steve Serby treatment this weekend.  Serby, the Post columnist, often welcomes new players into New York with a lengthy interview that often yields insights that you don't get in post-game interviews or even press conferences. Serby talked with Lin about LinSanity, the Nets, racism, fans, Kenny Atkinson, Brook Lopez, and this being the Knicks-centric Post, what he thinks about New York's off-season acquisitions, one-by-one.  SMH. Here's a sampling. On LinSanity and leaving the Knicks "I was really, really sad. I was sad the way everything went down, ’cause nothing...

In editorial, Post hopes for return of LinSanity

Jeremy Lin and to an extent the Nets have downplayed a return of LinSanity, this time on a Brooklyn stage.  Lin in fact has said referring to him as a phenomenon rather than a man dehumanizes him. But others, including the New York Post, want it back. In and editorial Saturday entitled "Hoping the Linsanity can return,", the Post recalls that magic moment in 2012 and fondly hopes for a second chapter much like the first (even if unlikely ... and it doesn't get it all right.) The chances of fresh miracles are low; he’s had repeated injuries in his post-Knicks career — but when are...

Hoping the Linsanity can return

Linsanity II? New York can hope. The original Linsanity, of course, swept the city for one month during the winter of the 2011-12 NBA season, when Jeremy Lin came out of nowhere to make the Knicks magical again. Now he’s back, sporting fresh cornrows and a multi-year contract with the Nets. The chances of fresh...

The Bond: How Jeremy Lin and Kenny Atkinson's fortunes are intertwined

Jeremy Lin and Kenny Atkinson shared one shining moment four years ago, protege and mentor.  But LinSanity is nothing more than a prelude to what will start in a little more than three months. Lin is not some backup thrust into the national spotlight and Atkinson is not some player development coach. Now, their fates are intertwined as starting point guard and head coach. One doesn't succeed without the other. Mike Mazzeo notes that the bond started with Atkinson doubting Lin's readiness as an NBA player. Lin was getting torched during a 3-on-3 practice game ... by another assistant coach....

Hive Talk Live: Can the Hornets replace Jeremy Lin, Courtney Lee and Big Al Jefferson?

Free agency claimed a big chunk of the Hornets offensive punch and bench strength. "WHOA...this logo and audio embed look way different?" Read this. The Hornets front office was open about wanting to keep as many of their free agents as they could. Unfortunately they fell victim to their own cap limitations and their own success. Jeremy Lin, Courtney Lee and Al Jefferson all experienced better play under head coach Steve Clifford's system, play that would lead them to starting roles and bigger paydays from other teams. We relive their contributions to the team and explore how each of these...

... And about that hair, Jeremy Lin's newest hairstyle

It takes 30 minutes, the braid. But it's eons since he limited himself to a buzzcut as he did in the Garden. Since then, he's experimented with the man-bun, the mohawk (more the motified mohawk) and what TMZ called the "Miley Cyrus." Hair-raising. But on Wednesday it was braids, more specifically French braids. (Some thought it was cornrows, but a press room poll agreed braids). So why? "I’ve been wanting to do this and a bunch of different hairstyles for a long time,’’ Lin told the team’s website. "I’ve got all these different hairstyles. I don’t really know any braiders in...

No more LinSanity, just Brook-Lin?

The Nets are invested in Jeremy Lin and Jeremy Lin is invested in the Nets.  He said so.  They said so, but he said something else.  It wasn't quite, "LinSanity is dead, Long live Brook-Lin," but it was close. "I'm in a much, much different place mentally as a person than I was when I was with the Knicks," Lin said. "So when you talk about that platform, I want to embrace it. I am not just saying Asians. If you look at what is going on in the world and a lot of violence that is going on in the world in terms of the justice system and all of these different things that is real life....
