Lin the knick DIDN'T play, and the board gave him shit. TONS of shit.
Lin the future Rocket DIDN'T play but heroically wanted to and was practically restrained by his teammates against his will. Board understands.
That's strange. My memory is that most rational posters didn't give Lin shit about it at the time. I haven't been here recently, but even on the Rockets forum I frequent the perception that Lin was restrained by his teammates is nonexistent.
