And I love Jax as an analyst; I think he'll make a fine coach. Very heady player and one of the best creators of all-time.

Besides, the real reason those teams didn't lose any sleep over losing Lin is that they don't need PGs. The makeup of their rosters makes a little bit more sense than the makeup of this team's roster.

Regardless of how those teams ended up getting rid of Lin, the Knicks still ended up getting him. This is a guy who no one ever thought was getting a real shot. D'Antoni deserves credit, not blame, for going with him.



Lin is fine. Looks like a legit NBA player. Makes up for whatever he lacks in athleticism with brains. Understands how to play, even if he physically can't do everything you'd like him to. Could be a good back-up, for sure. Needs to improve his shot. I just can't stomach the laughable criticisms launched against D'Antoni, like blaming him for not realizing that Lin was "this good" until this point in the season. And when Lin has a few ****** games in a couple of weeks, it'll be D'Antoni's fault for staying with him.
Ah, okay - in that case, we're 100% in agreement.

Melo out for 1-2 weeks and Amare isn't expected back until next week or so.

Lin is going to take over baby!

Poor John Wall. He's getting dumped on by Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak.

Remember when I said Lin embarrassed J.Wall in the D-League and somebody said "oh, it's just the D-league?"

Well then.

Generic off the bench player with a knack for the corner 3.

Basically, this years Shawne Williams. Glad he's finally getting playing time, we needed a guy who could consistently drill the open 3.

One of the best 3pt shooters, but that is basically all he can do. Liability on defense.

Bill Walker needs to get off this team.

He falls in love with the 3 but is not a lethal shooter.

Defense is suspect.

Low BB IQ.

DD for J-Lin.

Wow.

I can't wait till we play good teams to see where he's at, but so far he's outplayed two good PGs.

Does anybody think lin is now the official starter at pg? Lin, shumpert, melo, stat, and chandler. Too bad stat and melo cant be on the same court at the same time.

Hahaha. No, he had an infection in his arm, which apparently got pretty bad and set back his recovery. He's probably not playing until March at this rate.

What the hell is going on with this kid Lin? He actually looks like he fits this screwball system like a glove. I know they have been playing chumps but even then... I mean this kid does not look like a fluke he looks like he can play.
