Default Bench Lin. Start Davis

It's clear Lin isn't good against defensive minded point guards. He is just a turnover machine. Start davis and bring Lin out with the bench. Lin isn't taking a team anywhere in the playoffs. Thank god they have Carmelo

Lin needs to get less minutes. I agree.

i dont agree, kids still young. I mean maybe limit his minutes a little more. but the team generally plays better, more motivated with Lin running the point from the start. although baron is completely capable. Lin gets more comfortable, gets starter type stamina and mind set and he's gold for that team

It's funny cause most of the Knicks posters were acting like Davis was gonna save them before Lin emerged. Then Lin breaks out and all Knicks fans call Baron trash and will be injured all season Lin won't win you games in the playoffs

I think the Knicks should still give Lin his minutes, at least for now. His biggest problem seems to be that he rushes the game often and that he never does anything with his left hand.

Obvious you don't know sh*t about basketball. Come back with the same argument when Baron plays 1 on 5.

Landry Fields is a much weaker link in the starting 5 than Jeremy Lin. Putting Smith or Shumpert in the starting lineup would give the Knicks a better secondary dribbler too.

No where in my post did I say he couldn't play the 4th quarter. All I said was to limit his minutes cause he sucks. Just cause made open shots doesn't mean shit. He is the reason the Knicks were down with his scumbag turnovers
