When Melo comes back and Baron can spell him, expect his numbers to dip, as well as the turnovers. Can he be a 20pt-7ast guy with Melo out there? Sure, and that's what I can see him becoming.
I have had this discussion with others on a Knicks forum...I really think Lin's game resembles the most of a Tony Parker/Steve Nash fusion.

He has Parker's offensive ability and the way he can take over the game it can lead and impact this team is the same as when Parker won the Finals MVP. However, parker was not this good of a passer and outside shooter...That's where Nash's IQ, vision, passing comes in.

Rondo's fire is in Lin also, but Rondo sucks from the outside and is probably better in the paint.
