I LOVE how he looked to the coach to ask for an isolation and coach gave him the "Let's go!" Confidence on confidence. This is inspirational in so many ways.

When do we get to have our Nike Air Lins?

It'll be on Star or ESPN. The guys over here bought a bunch of Knicks games to cash in on this craze.


Hmmm, I checked their tv listings online and no games listed.


If its in HD then its not on cable TV as there is no HD on Cable. Try another local provider like MOD and there is a schedule for the NBA games in HD. NBA games are also in HD and non hd channels on satellite as well.

Everybody knows ESPN STAR in Taiwan has very limited sports programming.


im after the Dallas , Knicks game Monday at 2am and I called ELTA HD on MOD and they won't be carrying that particular game.
ESPN star site not showing any games on their site. any help will be appreciated.

Interesting article in the NYT that focuses on the Taiwanese/Chinese identity question:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/16/sport ... wanted=all

While in the car, Lin’s uncle volunteered his views on one of the most contentious questions on the Internet about Jeremy Lin and his family: whether they are Taiwanese or Chinese. “For sure, they are Taiwanese,” Lin Chi Chung said. “I spoke to Jeremy Lin’s father, who is my younger brother, and he said, ‘Make sure you point this out.’ ”

Both of Jeremy Lin’s parents were born in Taiwan and retain dual citizenship in Taiwan and the United States, Lin Chi Chung said. Jeremy Lin was born in California and has American citizenship, but has been offered dual citizenship in Taiwan as well by the foreign ministry here, his uncle added.

Lin Chi Chung said that he and Jeremy Lin’s father were eighth-generation descendants of immigrants from Fujian province in southeastern China who moved to Taiwan in 1707. They were part of a large wave of Fujian migration then, from whom most of Taiwan’s current residents are descendants, and these descendants tend to identify themselves as Taiwanese.

Non stop coverage on his favorite foods -fried rice and duck-, merchandise, his family in Zhanghua -well, but even CNN had shots of that-, and his videos on YouTube -how to get into a big school, hillarious.

Interesting. I wonder if he's part of the slightly famous Lin family of this book. http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Pioneer-F ... 069103124X

I just saw the comments that were posted on facebook right after he was signed. Great to see some racist douches eat some crow. I'm getting sick of the culture of, "As long as it's funny, you can say anything you want online, and nobody can get angry at you for it, because they need to lighten up."

Right. I just noticed that the Apple Daily poster has the games calendar, too. :D :oops:
Saturday 2/18 at 9am, Weishu -that's Channel 72, right?
The game on 2/20 at 2am is "not certain". But it seems like a good time to go to a sports bar. :D
2/21 at 8:30am that's MOD, and 2/23 at 8:30 is Weishu.
