Default Jeremy Lin Becoming Vocal Leader Of Rockets

http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/conf...s=iref:nbahpt1

Teammates talking about him being the best player on the floor. The most confident. A floor general. I'm really going to keep my eye on Lin this year because I DO feel dude is going to be an all star level talent this year and going forward. There is no such thing as 15-20 game flukes. The guy is going to improve and has been working his ass off.

I could cut my foot off, put a Rockets jersey on it and it'd be the best player on the floor for Houston

True best player on Rockets isn't saying a lot but this guy is special.

of course you would.

If you were 7 feet tall you would be the best center in the NBA too?

Lin sat out a playoff game for NY he was healthy enough to play (smart or not, he did sit out). He spent the whole offseason promoting himself as a brand. You'll excuse me if i want to see this first before i believe it.

The whole "85%" issue was not saying Lin was 85% healthy to play (and thus physically able to play and probably should have played). He said he was 85% to being at the physical threshold of being able to play (meaning he was still in too much pain to suit up). Whenever he moved, he had pain and he couldn't even touch the rim. Lin has refuted this 85% thing a few times but some people keep saying, "He was healthy and was 85% to being perfect, near 100% health" and that's not what happened.

The guy can play, if given the freedom. Speed and quickness from a defensive team bothers him some but he should be one of the better point guards out West. Two things I wonder about. If he doesn't go all out with his play, its a special talent to do the Wade, Rose, AI, KG thing for 80 games, is Lin still good. I don't think he can go all out for 60 games, but I can be wrong. The other thing is zones. With the Knicks his game did dim a bit once the scouting reports got out so his grade was incomplete.

He's a baller, no doubt. Endurance is the biggest question. Another thing to add is that they play more wide open out west so his game could flourish even more. But I think the scouting will balance that out, tho.

He was healthy enough to play, his injury was not something you cannot play through. He didn't because he had a contract coming up. Was it smart? YES. Does it scream locker room leader? NO. (Note: and the whole board said as much, my take was always he doesn't need to if he thinks he will get reinjured. But again - that's not locker room leader. Not at all.)

I was 85% of the minimum requirement i can play, get the **** out - who talks like that?

Some of u r stupid as hell.. If u were in his shoes.. U had 20 games of fame n aint get paid yet.. Knee injury at 85% w ur team alrdy being down like 3-1 w most of them being blowouts!

Not hating. Saying i don't see him as the vocal leader. He wasn't in NYC.

And not playing hurt is not something the "leader" would be worried about. The "leader" would get his ass in there and inspire everyone else.

EVERYONE LETS GO! LETS WIN! OH, im not playing, my knee hurts. BUT BE INSPIRED!

Probably people coming off knee surgery.

I think it's bush league for you to question his decision being that you really have no idea what kind of condition his surgically repaired knee was in.
