Yeah, he definitely shouldn't have talked up Melo's game like that. He made it sound like the guy could be on Lebron's level, and that obviously will never be the case.

Not being funny, but what is Lebron's level?

He may be the best player in the NBA, but he has flaws as well.

All I really want for Melo is for him to work within the offense, ala Paul Pierce.

He's the best player in the game, and far and away the best SF in the game. He's a legitimate superstar.

Actually, I would revise that: he isn't far and away better than Kevin Durant.

Some interesting sh*T

ESPN Sports Science - Lin as quick a John Wall...

http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/kni...nce-jeremy-lin

Quote:
To sum it up, he has a similar acceleration rate as John Wall. He has a faster average release time than Ray Allen (although since he is not very accurate that time may slow down as he develops a better shot).

The accelerate and quickness is what surprises me the most. He is on par with a player known for quickness and speed.

I recall in a game they said when New York tested him in some agility stuff for the draft his numbers were off the charts







The man who fixed Jeremy Lin's shot

http://www.newsday.com/sports/basket...-lin-1.3533733

Postby D Lee February 16, 2012, 4:47 pm
Jeremy Lin had a reputation for missing shots, and not one team took a chance on him in the NBA draft. So, how did Lin go from poor shooter to shooting star? Meet Doc Scheppler.

He's the man who helped the Knicks' sensation become a scoring threat by improving his jump shot and proving everyone else wrong.

"I laugh now when I hear people say he's not a very good shooter," said Scheppler, a 58-year-old girls basketball coach at a private high school in northern California.

Scheppler said he spent some 400 hours in the gym with Lin last fall. And it paid off.

The results were on display Tuesday night in Toronto, where Lin swished a go-ahead three-pointer with .5 seconds remaining, continuing his remarkable streak as the Knicks' new point guard. Last night, as the Knicks stretched their Lin-ning streak to seven games, he scored only 10 points in limited minutes in a 100-85 blowout of the Sacramento Kings after averaging 26.8 points during his first six games.

Lin's story is even more amazing because no one seemed to see this coming. Lin wasn't offered a college scholarship to play basketball, was passed over by all 30 NBA teams in the 2010 draft, and was waived by two NBA teams.

"I realize that's only because that's what people have heard or read about him," Scheppler said, "but I was in the gym with him and I watched him shoot and it's just the most beautiful shot when he's got the repeatable stroke going."

Lin credited Scheppler during his postgame news conference Tuesday night, saying he had the confidence to take that pressure-filled, tiebreaking shot because of their work together.

Scheppler, who has coached at Pinewood School in Los Altos, Calif., for 34 years and has won five state championships, says Lin sent him a text message later that night that said, "That was all you."

"He helped me a ton with my shot, and so I'm not going to stop shooting if I think it's a good shot," Lin said after Tuesday's victory. "I understand my percentage is low. That's obviously a criticism people have of me."

But according to Scheppler, that won't be a criticism for long.

"His shot has changed," Kings coach Keith Smart said before last night's game. Smart coached Lin with the Golden State Warriors last season.

Lin's high school coach, Peter Diepenbrock, introduced Lin to Scheppler a few years ago when Lin was at Harvard, but they worked together only every now and again, Scheppler said. That changed last August when Lin made improving his jump shot a priority. They worked together three or four times a week until the NBA lockout ended in December, Scheppler said.

At first, their work focused on rebuilding Lin's shot by improving his footwork, lowering his release point and training him not to jump so high before he shoots.

"The best shooters, it's not that their releases are quick, it's their feet that are quick," Scheppler said. "The best ones jump quick, but not high. So we did that with Jeremy, and we sped up his actual release time . . . and then it became just a thing of repeatable beauty."

Often they played a game Scheppler calls "Beat the ghost," in which Lin had to make 21 catch-and-shoot three-pointers before he missed seven -- or else start all over.

"That's where I saw how much of a competitor he is," he said. "He'd say, 'I have to win.' "

Scheppler said that by the end of their time together, Lin typically hit 70 percent to 75 percent of the three-pointers.

"Some of the shots we've worked on, he hasn't even brought them out of his bag yet," Scheppler said. "I would watch him shoot and say to myself, 'This guy is going to tear it up.'

"It was just a matter of getting the opportunity."

I'm wondering if Jeremy is playing so well because of what's around him or because of this system. People forget, Nate Robinson was dropping 18 a game off the bench in this system.

It's the system, every pg in it has played better than expected.

But none of his work is possible if his teammates don't hit their shots.

Kinda why I think his best game was against the Lakers.

They claimed not to do their homework on him, and you can tell from the outset they lied big time.

Lin had every single jumper he wanted in that game, because they figured his scouting report was he can't shoot.

When he made his shots, they completely just gave up, with no backup plan, and then he could drive in the paint at will.

He seriously gotta work on driving to his left though, which is where the bulk of "his" turnovers come from.

Derek Fisher came in that game with one mindset. I'm going to bully this Asian kid into thinking he can't play. I was impressed with Lin's poise. Fisher did nothing different from what the older cats at the park do to the young guys. Try to rough you up because they know they can't keep up. (Although I just had a birthday so I can't really talk )

I really dont think its a big game for the Knicks. I hope they dont put that much pressure on themselves to measure up to the Heat team clicking on all cylinders.

This is a game where I want to see who is going to step up and help Lin. I want them to win but I want to see who on the Knicks bring the energy and electricity. The amount of athletic bodies that Lin will face tonight might be to daunting of a task!

I will get hated on for this statement but I would have loved to see this game played when the Knicks were going good without Melo + Stat. It would have been electrifying!

I won't hate you for saying that last part, but come on man.

It's a big game no matter the result for the Knicks.

These are practice games for them, but I think this game will surprise quite a few.

I'm not predicting a win, but I don't think the Knicks will face the same fate of the other teams the Heat have played.

Those games were over by halftime.

Usually when I type something controversial I let it marinate for a while.....

I really think Lin made the Bteam play well above their abilities and I think they would have been uber confident played them close.


the only way its over by halftime if Lin gets utterly shut down and his teammates dont step up.

Do you see the rest of the team coming up SMALL?
