Default Knicks lose 5th straight game as Linsanity fades

NY Daily News:

The clock on Jeremy Lin’s 15 minutes of fame has almost run out.

It looks to be on about 14:30 as the Knicks host the Sixers Sunday at the Garden.

It doesn’t mean that Lin is headed for the Knicks’ D-League team in Erie, Pa. But the team’s starting playmaker is showing us that Linsanity is over, as he’s struggled against better competition in recent games and with the Knicks plummeting under the .500 mark after he led them to nine wins in 12 games in his first 12 starts.

Now it’s a question of whether he can hold his own against the competition.

“He’s proven he’s an NBA player,” said one Eastern Conference GM. “But now we’re all trying to figure out what level he’s going to be at from here on out.”

Lin is not at the “superstar” rung or on the second “star” level, except maybe when it comes to all the attention he still is getting from the media. During the Knicks’ road trip this past week to Dallas and San Antonio, he had as many cameras and reporters at his locker after those two losses as Carmelo Anthony. If that isn’t crazy enough, he gets as many “State of the Knicks” questions as Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire.

On the court, Lin’s star has fallen dramatically, as many NBA people suspected it would, once teams started to really scout him and study his game.

Nothing you can do when teams adjust to you. Great PG's will be great PG's at that position and learn to adapt, you can't adapt you will be demolished. The guy put on a SHOW, he made ratings off the ROOF. He also brought the Asian community back, if they were gone. He must of made a shit load of money, he was the sensation. one I will personally remember for the remainder of my life. Wherever he goes, he proved to have heart, but that can't carry the team to the playoffs alone.

I hope they bench him and let Bdiddy play with the first unit.
2nd unit will always be better than 1st they can actually run defend and hit shots.

Our 2nd unit does NOT defend lol They hit 3s and outscore teams lol. I dont think Lin should get benched though. I know I said "F his confidence" but at the same time, no player deserves to get benched after a few bad games with the month he had. Besides, Baron hasn't been much better.

Fixed.
Lin at least attacks the basket and turns it over because of his aggression.
Baron has a very questionable shot selection and 90% of his turnovers are unforced,he turns it over because he wants to make a flashy pass.

Also Lin plays again tougher competition (starters > bench) and they also put much more pressure on him than on Baron.

Baron is playing like Marbury did his last year here. He was so worried about the media saying he was selfish (even tho he was getting 8apg) that he started over-passing. Ruined his game for the rest of his NBA career.
