Pass The Pill:
Jeremy Lin said he believes he’ll be an All-Star It would be a fair and accurate assessment to say Jeremy Lin has been mostly hype in his brief stint thus far with the Houston Rockets. Averaging 10.5PPG, 6 APG and 4.5 RPG is nothing to sniff your nose up at, but hardly what the Rockets thought they would be getting. His air ball against the Heat that could have propelled the Rockets to victory just added to his personal struggles against the team that was responsible for killing “Linsanity. Still, despite having some struggles with the Rockets, the former Knicks’ point guard still thinks he’ll eventually be an All-Star. “At some point, for sure. Right now I have a ways to go, but at some point, yes. I try to get better every year, and if I do that and work on the things that are problems for me right now, I definitely think I’ll have that chance.” Although Lin is shooting only 34 percent on the young season, he has had some good games. Against Atlanta Lin put up 21 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds. It’s the inconsistency that has been his biggest problem thus far. His Rockets are 4-7 and struggling, but that could all change Friday night when Lin sets out for a victory over the team that let him walk…the New York Knicks.

Jeremy Lin is getting ready to play the New York Knicks for the first time since leaving them during the offseason to sign with the Houston Rockets. Naturally, he’s facing plenty of questions from the New York media about his time with the team and his departure. His first game against the Knicks also marks a perfect time to reevaluate the Knicks’ decision to let him go, which...
Whenever Lakers' Metta World Peace is on the court, expect anything to happen. Of course when anything happens, it usually involves some sort of physical altercation.
From the "Malice at the Palace," his confrontation with Kobe Bryant to his blatant elbow to Rockets' James Harden's neck, needless to say, World Peace isn't so peaceful.
Well it seems...
Last Monday, the Rockets decided to send rookie Royce White to their D-League affiliate. That was the story anyway. White was actually already not with the Rockets, apparently upset with the organization for failing to live up to its promises in accomodating his anxiety disorder. White has asked Houston to give him permission not to fly on the team's plane to road games and...
Metta World Peace is clearly one crazy dude on and off the basketball court. He's had his fair share of fights and other incidences that are frowned upon by the NBA. Last night he added some more when the Lakers took it to the Rockets and beat them on the scoreboard (119-108) and World Peace took it to Jeremy Lin and beat him literally. (in the face) Check out the video...
Jeremy Lin says his life has been more peaceful so far in Houston.credit: images.christianpost.com
We all remember the media madness that surrounded Jeremy Lin last season when he started playing for the New York Knicks. Linsanity took place in one of the few places where it could be so overhyped: New York City. Lin become a folk hero literally overnight, and the world suddenly started...
During last night's Los Angeles Lakers/Houston Rockets affair, Lakers forward Metta World Peace wasn't exactly happy with Jeremy Lin's ability to get to the basket.In the third quarter of play, Metta was going to the hoop on a fast break attempt and Lin fouled him at the basket.During the end of the play, Metta accidentally swings his elbow and it accidentally hits Jeremy in the face:
Royce White is having a difficult time transitioning to life at the pro level, and the Houston Rockets may be already regretting selecting the versatile forward in the first round.
Jeremy Lin became a global phenomenon with the New York Knicks last season.
Now, "Linsanity" has faded, and his struggles with the Houston Rockets is partly why.
Lin will try to bounce back from one of his worst performances of the season in order to help the Rockets continue their dominance of the Knicks in his first meeting with his former team Friday night.
Omer Asik has been one of the NBA's best defensive bigs though he struggles offensively still.
Jeremy Lin blew up over a strong month last season in New York, and that catapulted in to a pretty good 3 year $25 million dollar deal in Houston. Lin is in Houston now, and coincidence or not, Lin is now in the same place that allowed Yao Ming to capture All Star vote year [...]

The Knicks will be taking on Jeremy Lin who is now on the Rockets for the first time this season later on tonight at 8:00 pm in Houston.
But if Jeremy Lin was a Knick today, he thinks himself and Melo would've worked out well which nobody is buying into it.
Last season, Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin both struggled working together as they tried to make it work, but it didn...
James Harden scored 28 points, Patrick Patterson added 20 and the Houston Rockets snapped a three-game losing streak with a 93-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
Toney Douglas swished a 3-pointer and sank two free throws in the final 1:11 as Houston won for the 33rd consecutive time when holding its opponent below 90 points, the NBA's longest current streak...
Chalk up another L for the Dallas Mavericks (their fifth in seven games), but color me impressed by OJ Mayo. In overtime, Golden State pounced on Dallas and scored the first seven points. The Mavs were able to recover, though, as Mayo composed an individual 7-0 run to tie the game. He got started by answering a Harrison Barnes three, then brought his boys to within a bucket...
