I wasn't even aware he was available this year until I heard he was sent to the D-League. My reaction was WTF is that guy doing in that league, he's better than that, if anything, we should've signed him and tried him out in the D-League. That was my reaction before his hot streak.......I had no feeling that he would ever do what he is doing now....but with as desperate a need as we have I would be bringing in everyone with NBA experience.
I thought Lin did enough last year to show that he belonged in the NBA.....but of course with Monta and Steph.....GS was the worst place for him to be....they had no use for him.
If you think Houston was in desperate need of a starting Pg
If you think even today if Jeremy Lin was on the Rockets that he would be starting
WHY IS THIS SO HARD FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND.......MOST TEAMS DO NOT NEED A PG!!!!!!!
As for the Lakers scouting....they don't give a rats @ss, Jimmy Buss said that any guy sitting at a bar could be a scout and do as well as what they have.
The Spurs place a very high value on scouting and have tons of scouts all over the place....many are part timers. I know one of their scouts very well.
