when he & taj were on the court together, they were rebounding/defense hounds.

as far as stamina...it's always been there. the big man coach is going to have his work cut out for him on the offensive end. he has to have his shot set up and his hands aren't great. he does finish strongly at the rim though.

asik's out for blood *****

yep, dude has a hell of a motor and good instincts to go with above average quickness and athleticism. Definitely a good pick up for houston, probably better than lin.

anyone who expected him to is a dumbass who very limited reasoning. That 14? game stretch was a perfect storm that played to lin's strengths and allowed him to play above and beyond himself. It wont be matched. his stat production during that stretch was comparable with some of the best lines in history (granted it was only 14? games).

But he will be a decent and serviceable pg on that team. McHale is a smart coach and lin is a great fit for how he runs an offense. Cant wait to see Asik's improvement, both with a larger role and mchale's influence.

I never said such a thing. I knew he couldn't keep that up (averaging 25/8 or whatever during the whole season). But I said it wasn't impossible for him to average 15/7 over the longer time period which I still think he's able to do if he gets enough shots and touches.

Jeremy Lin got his payday. Doubt he cares anymore. He's set for life.

How would you know that? There are a lot of players that make more than him, are they all just coasting too?

He didn't have a bad game (9/7/2 with only 2 TOs) and even if he did it doesn't matter because it's just preseason.

Thread fail.

I imagine Lin will put up something like 14 and 7 on a decent clip. If he can keep his TO's low, probably will be a top 20 PG.

I really do hope he wasn't all hype though. That would be truly disappointing.

He will still have his moments. Once you've tasted the sweetness and the glory of dominating a game, you are changed forever. It is a mental thing. Most NBA players have not experienced it but Lin has. He will find his way back.

Generally he will be fairly average but there will always be that potential lurking. I will appear again. Definitely.
