Default Re: The Lingend is over

Lin was the dude dropping 38 on the Lakers like it was nothing, and now he can't score for shit I think he's at his best scoring and being aggressive, he can't just defer on this Rockets team they don't have many scorers at the moment.

Lin is playing in the presason kind of like Rubio did last year for wolves. Running the team well, making good passes, playing good disruptive defense, and helping the team win. It's just that he's shooting piss poor (kind of like Rubio did last year).

Lin gets trashed for being a crappy point guard, and Rubio gets praised as the next Jason Kidd.

Lin is supposed to be a scorer. Rubio isn't.

What he's supposed to be is irrelevant. What he's doing is playing sort of like a Rubio-lite... since his shots not falling. Seems to me the Rockets are doing well in the preseason with Lin running the offense.

Lin is not playing anything like Rubio.

A facepalm and a declarative statement of fact with nothing to back it up equals typical post from IGOTGAME.

Lin is running a team with good offensive efficiency? Check. (Houston is amongst the top teams in offensive efficiency this preseason.)

Lin is making good passes and limiting turnovers? Check.

Lin is playing good defense and getting a lot of steals. Check.

Lin is helping the team win. Check.

Lin is shooting piss poor. Check.

Lin seems to be doing a lot of Rubio things this preseason.

And my beef is not really Goran, Lowry had the cheapest contract in the NBA compared to what he actually did on court. How hard was it to please the guy, seriously. And trading away a really good player with an extremely good contract should result more than a first round pick..

Gotta say, this was easier than expected. First result on Google

"“I don’t think so,” Lowry, 26, said. “I honestly think it would be tough. Things have to be addressed. The situation would have to be addressed.

“If things aren’t addressed coaching-wise, I guess I have to be moved.”"

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I believe I read somewhere that we sent Goran to Phoenix as a slight favor to him. We blew up the roster; we'd be wasting his best years. Likewise with Lowry.

But regarding Dragic's player option - Morey said that with a player option, the chances of ending up with essentially a free agent (not desirable to other teams) or a player that few teams want is much higher. I know it's coming from the man himself, but still.

Tbh, I'm just glad we're not stuck in mediocre-land with players that have already plateaued or were on the decline.

http://news.yahoo.com/lin-needs-knee...4839--spt.html

In early (first week) of April Lin had surgery that would keep him out a maximum of 6 weeks. It's now been approx 28 weeks.

He hasn't played NBA level games since then
He's getting back into game shape, getting his timing back etc

He's also getting fouled, and not getting any calls, you know bumps make you miss. Lin went to the line an average of 8 times a game last season, so far not so much.

He got bumped on this play, the only shot he made, last game - no call
