What would you offer him if he finishes averaging 15 and 7 or 8?

Im sure he will get the 1 mil QO, but 15 and 8 is definitely worth mid level, but I would wait for another team to offer it first, then gauge interest.

Also, Lin just can not split a trap/hard hedge coming off a ballscreen. The quickness and arm length of defenders make it basically impossible for him to pull off. Once teams realize that they will change how the play him. It will make the limited vision all the more apparent.

My main concern is that I don't want the team and fanbase to get sucked into his production for this month. The Knicks play a lot of teams this month that have just been horrible about defending point guards. I don't want to see them hand him a $5 million a year deal that they will regret in two seasons.
Maybe you saw more than I could, but I saw quite a few cross court passes, and deep kickouts during the game made by Lin.

The kid has been very solid in few games.

I think you may be a tad overly critical of his play.

Even when trapped, I only recall once when he gave up his dribble.

I'll make a true assessment when I can what he does with the full compliment of players.

What a great game today. I love this guy, he became my favorite player by far.

Also, am I the only person who is getting selfish about Lin? What I mean is, do you guys really want to keep this guy as much as I do on the team long term? I can't help but stress so early because of how much I enjoy basketball and our team play with him. Without Amare + Melo getting wins and getting our players involved I feel so good. How do we keep this guy with contracts like Amare + Melo + Tyson?

If he gets 15 and 8, I'd give him around what we gave Felton.

"can't go left".........did that.

"can't shoot the jumper"....did that.

"can't hit the three"....did that.

"fatigue factor"....he's 23, he ain't getting tired, and is strong as a bull.

Now I will tell anyone that the League is scripted, but this is incredible.

If Lin continues to play solid basketball until the end he's a lock for the Most Improved Player.

He doesn't need to put this kind of numbers,just a solid all-around performance that leads to victory.

Lin in his last 4 games:

28.5 points , 3.8 rebounds , 8 assists , 1.8 steals on 58% shooting
