You are legitimately stupid. Lin is an above average perimeter D player in the league.

You have sipped ALL the kool aid that the Houston Media/coaching staff used to spin that Bev was SO MUCH better at defense than Lin.


When in reality, they both play very good defense.

Did you watch any Rockets games last season? He was at best an average defender. The biggest reason why Beverley started over Lin was because of his defense. Think about it you moron.

I don't think we've peaked. Harden isn't in his prime, Dwight is still getting healthier and McFail just has next season and he's gone!!! We have some contracts we can trade for a package for Rondo this season. This season will be a down one I guess, but then we'll be right back close to the top.

Great reason . You really went deep with your point! Nice job! ... Lol gimme a break. You pick on him but I bet you don't even realize he was just in his 2nd season as a pro and not to mention it was his 1st year as a starter. He was 21 years old when the season began so he's still learning and getting better. Last season, Terrence Jones averaged 12 ppg/7 rpg/1.3 bpg on 54% shooting. That's pretty good for a player who was so young and was selected 18th in the 2012 NBA draft... What more do you expect out of a guy like that? Next season he'll start off the year as a more improved player.

And yet you hate Lin so much

Jones was dismantled by Aldridge in the playoffs and any very good PF he faced late in the season.

I don't hate Lin

I just don't like it when moronic fans like you overrate the crap out of him. I've made fun of him at times for turning the ball over too much, or air balling a wide open 3... but I still don't necessarily hate him. Hate is a strong word. I've had mixed feelings about him in the time he was a Rocket. I've liked him and disliked him. Right now since he's a Laker I don't like, dislike, love, or hate him but I wish him success.

This season, we will have:

Beverley as a second year starter.
Harden as a third year starter.
Ariza's shooting and defense to replace Parsons.
Jones as a second year starter.
Dwight as a second year Rocket.

You're right, how could they get any better?

Another year, another playoff collapse. Maybe he'll give a shit this year!

Yeah, Ariza is known for his monster post-contract year seasons. Should be prime T-Mac level, at least.

Word has it he's still sobbing in the shower after getting raped by Aldridge.

Gonna be 29 later this year. If there's one thing we know with 100% certainty, it's that big men who rely heavily on athleticism improve into their late 30s, right?

I would love to see harden play pg so I can see how someone could think he'd be best as a 6th man (which in more than a few cases, even a majority of good teams) is a usually way better than the 6th most important role. It's just so important to have a guy come in that can take over and do most of it with the ball.


People get way too high on their definition of positions, and I know d is the problem, but I want to see him w the ball in his hands even more. F making him the 6th man, give him the go as the PG. Instead of playing him w a Beverly(just as a starter, begerly still a good fit and he'd be the backup pg and play w harden as well) you start an Iman Shumpert type.


Harden is one of the best players in the game. His effort D should embarrass him. Physical and mental laziness

Cause no first year starter ever improves in his second year. Fact.

Maybe, maybe not. Who knows, but nobody ever improves. This has been established in the line above.

And Lebron was known as a choker, until he didn't choke anymore.

How embarrassing it must have been, for a second year player to get beaten down by an all-star. The SHAME!! BOO THIS MAN!! /sarcasm. Since he can't improve in his second year as a starter (because from above, we know nobody improves), he is doomed for his career. May as well cut him now.

We know chemistry takes time to develop, and we know that injuries take time to heal. His per 36 scoring was higher last season than all but two seasons in Orlando, and his per 36 scoring, and his FG% was higher last year than his last season in Orlando, so he continues to improve. Oh, and when does 29 = late 30's?

Once again, you don't post anything useful, just mindless babble. It's okay, it gives you meaning in life, I understand. The Bucks are good.
