"Linsanity" Director Evan Jackson Leong said in a new interview that Christian NBA star Jeremy Lin's story is both universal and transcendental, as the DVD of the movie was released on Tuesday.
"There are a lot of different elements for a lot of different audiences, but at the end of the day, this is a universal story that transcends sports, race, and culture. This a story about chasing your dreams," Leong told The Blaze in an interview.
The film, released in October 2013, tells the story of the NBA star who exploded onto the basketball scene with the New York Knicks and made headline news in February 2012 with a series of impressive performances. It documents the rising success of the first Asian-American to play in the NBA, and highlights the importance of faith through both his success and failure. more >>
Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin could be in line for a three-team trade according to some reports, which could end up with him moving to the Chicago Bulls before the winter trade deadline.
The Houston Forward Times noted that the Rockets have "desperately" been trying to trade off defensive center Omer Asik, and a deal concerning Lin could lead to the Turkish basketball player going to the Atlanta Hawks.
Lin could be traded to Chicago, while the Bulls' small forward, Luol Deng, could be headed in the opposite direction. more >>
As Jeremy Lin continues recovering from back spasms and other injuries that have kept him on the sidelines for the Houston Rockets, trade rumors are pointing him toward the Chicago Bulls or LA Lakers next year.
"Two teams that have been rumored for a trade and in need of a point guard are the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls, with injury riddled L.A. holding as many as 12 expiring contracts, and the Bulls figuring out their future with Derrick Rose likely sidelined for a full season once again," the International Business Times reported on Thursday.
Houston Rockets star Jeremy Lin suffered a new back injury on Friday in the 116-112 win against the Golden State Warriors, just two games after coming back from a sprained and bruised right knee. Rumors, meanwhile, are swirling that he might be traded this summer.
"I only played him 14 or 15 minutes in Portland because you could tell he was out of rhythm," said Rockets assistant coach Kelvin Sampson, according to UltimateRockets.com. "The game kind of dictates your substitution patterns, … but I certainly made an effort against Golden State to get him more minutes. He needs to get in a rhythm. We're disappointed that he's out, not nearly as disappointed as he is, I'm sure."
The popular Christian athlete sustained the injury on Friday after running into Warriors center Andrew Bogut, which forced him to leave the court after 21 minutes of play. Although Lin returned in the final few minutes, the injury is a setback to his recovery plan coming back from six games out due to the knee injury. more >>
