Yep, following the telenovela, biting my nails.... Well, Houston has no point guards. The fans comments on the Nicks remaining point guards are not kind -drunk driving scandal! yo-yo weight gain! harsh words from Mello!

Crazy, crazy first visit of Lin. Press harrassing his Grandma, 12 bodyguards... Insane, indeed.

And TV comparing clips to the other years/times he's been here. :roflmao:

Channel 52 for the broadcast on site. Thousands in line, banner with his likeness all over Emei street, metal barriers straining to hold the crowds back. Too hot, people fainting already.

Businesses in the area are rejoicing, though. Twice the normal weekend earnings.

It's live on the news right now. He's at Ximending, it's pure madness, the area is completely packed, a sea of people. I'm glad I didn't go to Ximending tonight lol.

He's on stage right now being interviewed by some ABC dude named Jason.

And it's totally free :) ...I like Lin a lot. (I learned a few things from watching him play, as well.)

The pride of Taiwan...is actually here in Taiwan. Who would have thunk it?

Umm, Cuban owns the Mavericks, not the Rockets. But apart from that you're right though. The Rockets are still huge in China.

So this is because of one player?
RIIIGHT!
Petty jealousy. I'm quite sure Lin is weeping into his wheatgrass juice because "downtownandrew" is having a bout of diarrhoea over his millions. :roflmao:
