PLAYERS: Jeremy Lin
TEAMS: Houston Rockets
Is Jeremy Lin overrated? Will his star fall back to earth in Houston? Can he mesh with the Rockets and continue his run of improbable success? No one knows, but this much is sure: Tons of people love Lin's story, and that story got 10 times cuter when Lin posted a photo of himself from a Halloween of yesteryear this week. Lin apparently went trick-or-treating as Bambi (insert jokes about him not signing with the Bucks here), and he was just as awesome in a deer costume as he's been on the court at times. Check out Lin as a youngster in the photo below. Photo via Facebook/Jeremy Lin

Would you believe me if I told you James Harden’s encore was even more spectacular than his debut? What if I told you he dropped 45 last night, and that only Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain have scored more points in a team’s first two games of any NBA season? It’s all true, folks. Remember, I have no reason to stretch the truth. I, like many, have been critical...

What I Learned Last Night: Nov 3, 2012

(one thing I've learned is I need to find a photo of Harden in a Rockets jersey)Every night (well - perhaps not EVERY night) I'll be firing up my NBA League Pass and scanning that night's box scores to bring you, my beloved reader, what I learned from the NBA that night.  Because the internet was invented for knee-jerk, totally premature, irrational reactions to things...

Matthews slows Harden in Blazers' win over Rockets

HOUSTON -- Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews seemingly did enough by burying the game-tying 3-pointer with just under a minute left in regulation time on Saturday night at Toyota Center. But when he stripped Houston Rockets guard James Harden in the waning seconds, preventing Harden from hoisting a potential game-winning jumper at the fourth-quarter buzzer, he gave Portland...

With Attention on Felton, Pablo Prigioni Could Soar For Knicks

If Jeremy Lin has a very productive year for the Rockets, he'll make it difficult for the Knicks to forget him so easily. In Houston's inaugural game of the season Wednesday night, he propelled himself to a strong start. The Harvard grad scored 12 points, dished out 8 assists, and grabbed 4 steals. Perhaps more impressively, Lin's had a team-high plus/minus of +23 (the...

Playing small ball and the pick-n-roll in today's NBA

There is one thing we do know is that the NBA is a copycat league. When the Boston Celtics revived the 'Big Three' theory, Pat Riley decided that he wanted his own with a slight twist. As a result he got the 'super-brats' together in South Beach and won the 2011-12 NBA title. This year, for some reason, the NBA is not only obsessed with small-ball but the pick-n-roll...
