"Lin's rapid rise from benchwarmer to crowd favorite also stoked a 13-percent spike in average prices for the game [Friday] against Kobe Bryant's club, to $312.51 from $276.39, and bump of 36 percent for next Wednesday's more affordable matchup against the Hornets ($89 to $121)."

I don't know if this cat is for real or not but i picked him up in my fantasy league after his first two games. Keep it rolling Yellow Mamba.

Yes. If he became a superstar, he'd definitely be the biggest.

I don't see it happening once scouting reports come out. The range on his jumper isn't big enough. It is super exciting to watch though lol. Don't forget this is the lock-out season, Chandler is playing his ass off, and the Knicks needed to step up their game anyway.

Nope.An undrafted, undersized center, with 4 all star selections, 4 DPOYs, a ring, 5 all nba selections, 6 all defense selections takes that crown.

Jeremy Lin is the second best player on the league.



We are not lin-worthy

BRoy was the yellow mamba, but Lin is a better yellow mamba.
“Hey Quick. I’ve got a new name for him,” Outlaw said.
“What’s that?” I said.
“Yellow Mamba.”
“Yellow Mamba?”
Roy interjects.
“Yellow Mamba. Like Kobe is the Black Mamba? I’m the Yellow Mamba.”
Why yellow I ask.
“My skin,” Roy says.
“Or we can go red,” Outlaw says. “You like yellow or red?”
“Well, I don’t understand red.” I say. “I get the yellow, but not red.”
“That’s what I said. I can explain the yellow when we talk about it,” Roy said.
Then he looked over to Outlaw.
“Yellow. Yellow.”
“OK. Yellow Mamba then,” Outlaw said definitively.
“Yellow mamba,” Roy said.
“We need to get that out there,” Outlaw tells me.
I ask Roy if he likes the nickname.
“I like it, it’s pretty good. Because the Black Mamba is the most deadly snake in the world. I’m not the most deadly, but …”

If not mistaken Duhon have the Knicks record for more assists in a game.

So yeah D'Antoni system great for stats, not so great for everything else.

In Lin defense D'Antoni system is gone this season, that's why the Knicks have been struggling offensively, the man doesn't know anything else beside make his players run, and needs a decent PG to do the rest for him.
