(It's funny, i bitched he ditched the Olympic team and was planning a trip to Taiwan, little did i know he wasn't our problem anyway.)
I'm sure Lin worked on his game, but he spent a lot of time brand building this offseason. I'm curious how this would have played in NY, because the rumbling from the Rocket fans is doubt about Lin's work ethic and toughness. Which is about 180 from what you'd expect, even if it's small rumblings.
in the offseason, you wont really know what a player does or not until you see his resulting play in the regular season. so its stupid to judge him now for little shit like for missing Select Team practice when you dont know really if he was still healthy to play at the time. who knows what else he was doing in the offseason or what he wasnt doing. its not fair to judge him on that criteria when no one else is judged on that same criteria.
so to judge lin based on a couple preseason games is judging him unfairly at the moment.
