I get called "Jordan" a lot...but only when my midrange game is a bit off. When it's on like donkey kong, I get called "Kobe".

Just because im asian its funny to call me jeremy lin? think about it like this, if your black and i call you lebron james is that suppose to be funny?

so some advice for you ish hoopers, if you see an asian kid on the court and you make a jeremy lin joke, you look really salty to him because its barely funny and hes heard it 100 times before.

what players have you been called before while playing basketball? ive been called yao, kobe, rose, artest, even manny pacquiao

i aint going to lie.

i dont hoop like that around here.

I just try to shoot around and 5 niggaz would come out of nowhere and be like "aight let go! 3 on 3! who got first?"

one of my homies showed me this place at Brookfield that i go to.

That's outstanding if you're being honest. That might be the best reference I've heard on a 2012 streetball court, next to a chubby dude at my courts getting the Clarence Weatherspoon label last year.

If you show you care and remain salty people are gonna exploit that weakness. Stay Linning...don't care.

Im the only white guy at my court so...
When my jumper is on, i get called novak.

When i play good defense or run the floor well, i get called kirilenko.

Once i blew by some guys, took it to the rim, and dropped a dime and got called nash. Doesnt happen much cuz i play mostly off the ball tho...
