Kobe Bryant wants Jeremy Lin, teammates to play 'relentlessly'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant said after Tuesday's loss that Jeremy Lin and his Laker teammates need to learn to play "relentlessly," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Lin was being more aggressive and taking shots. I think the biggest thing for him to learn is to play relentlessly," said Bryant.  "The most important thing [for my teammates] is that they understand the relentlessness they have to play with. I'll go out there and I'll leave on the floor everything, and compete and not be fearful of criticism or fearful of not playing well or missing shots.  That's the same way I want the guys to play, Jeremy in particular, because he's a really good player.  He's just getting used to playing with that kind of effort and attitude."

Bryant scored 39 points in Tuesday's loss but shot just 37.8 percent from the field. He said the loss "was upsetting, but we have to stay determined."

Fantasy Basketball Blog: Jeremy Lin's new role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, we took a look at the Fantasy implications of Steve Nash's injury, and how his absence will impact Jeremy Lin now that he is the de facto lead point guard for the Lakers. Here's some of what I had to say about Lin:

"Lin has appeared in four preseason games in Byron Scott's offense, and has looked to have a solid command. He is averaging 8.8 assists per-36 minutes in his preseason action, and gives this team an element of off-the-dribble creativity that might be sorely lacking if Kobe's athleticism is missing. Lin is going 74th on average in CBSSports.com leagues, and that number should only creep up now that there are no real roadblocks to him getting 30-plus minutes per game."

Lin should be considered a top-30 guard in all Fantasy formats at this point, and he could be good for 15 points and 6 assists per game this season. 


Lakers PG Jeremy Lin to return to action Tuesday

Scott could opt to start PG Jeremy Lin over Steve Nash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Byron Scott is considering starting Jeremy Lin at point guard for the Lakers this season rather than aging and injury plagued Steve Nash.

The 40-year-old Nash played in the preseason opener before sitting out the second game and pulling himself out of the third game because of injury. He is in the final season of a three-year contract worth $28 million.

"I have no doubt in my mind that if I went to Steve and said tomorrow, 'You know what, I'm going to start Jeremy and the games you're available, we're going to bring you off bench,' he's such a professional that I don't think it would be a problem whatsoever," Scott told the Los Angeles Times.

Nash was limited to just 15 games last season due to a back injury.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Scott plans to start Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill together this season, with Wesley Johnson or Nick Young being considered for the small forward spot. That means rookie Julius Randle and newly acquired guard Jeremy Lin will come off the bench, and he is leaning toward bring Nick Young off the bench as well.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jeremy Lin returns from injury, still slumping


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
