Point guards have a knack for attacking the basket causing chaos against the Heat. He was just too passive. It seems like he was just letting Harden do the playmaking which was basically isoing. Luckily the team caught fire from three.

If he gets so good or so bad it's moot i will stop the thread.

DISCUSS.


Making it obvious you're a hater. So if he starts scoring a bit more, you won't bother with this thread? This is only made to mock his lack of amazing statlines?

It's not Jeremy Lin's fault that the basketball world put him on a pedestal last season, one that he couldn't really sit on.

And he could've played better. Just too damn intimidated. Just gotta attack and draw fouls on the overly aggressive Chalmers.

If he is scoring 20/10 and is an all star what is there to discuss? I'll make a new thread, called EVERYONE WAS WRONG, LIN IS GREAT PLEASE DISCUSS>

I also said if he gets so bad im stopping to so we don't have endless bashing. Basically i mean discuss while there is shit to discuss. Do we discuss Chris Duhon's performance?

People are uber sensitive.

Default Re: The Official "Discuss Jeremy Lin's Performance" Thread

The hype and contract is why people hate him. But don't forget this guy was undrafted and close to being cut.

Put it this way, if he was a 2nd round draft pick in his rookie season playing the way he is playing now, would he be hated or seen as a steal?

You can't blame him for getting paid. No one here would have done anything differently. Just seems that people want to see him fail and I just can't get behind that, especially when he seems like a decent person on and off the court.

That being said, if it weren't for that near airball at the end, I would have said the Heat game would be good for him as he played MUCH better than the first time around. I hope he shakes off that horrible ending soon and focuses on the positives.

What team are you a fan of? I only see you post in Jeremy Lin/Houston Rockets related threads, this is probably the most neutral/positive post I've seen you make when it comes to them.

He had one nice little flurry yesterday but he didn't play that well overall. He didn't have much impact, the final shot wasn't the big deal (although it was funny). "Linsanity died" started trending on twitter because of that.

The weird thing to me is he doesn't bring the ball up or initiate the offense that much. (On the Knicks he would do it unless he got pressured and had to give the ball up.) That's strange, no? Symptom of a balky knee?

His knee is fine. He's either lost his confidence or his being told to pass the ball more to Harden to ....hell...I have no idea why if that's the case.....

Left out steals? As he is one of the top leading player in steals in the league

But yeah I don't get this thread. Nobody realistically expects this guy to drop amazing stats. He's just going to go along with a statline like this and it's fine. He hasn't even played 1 whole season yet, there has been worse performances by rookies. He's playing bad now due to lack of confidence, and not inserting himself into the game, but at least give it a couple more games man.

People just want to hate on him based on publicity generated by ESPN (Shepseskaf), his contract (Millwad), and ditching the Knicks (Niko). These 3 guys will shat on him no matter what (unless he starts playing like MJ ) and I expect more hate posts coming from them in this thread

Jeremy Lin would make a good back-up PG in this league. He's not got the cojones for being "the man" or even a regular starter. He'll have good games as the starter but he'll have passive games like last night.

12 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 6.4 APG, 2.4 SPG in 35 MPG - Decent stat line. Great FT shooter, horrible FG %. Not a great 3 point shooter. I'm actually impressed that he's able to average that many assist given how much Harden dominates the ball. And to that point (in relation to my point about Lin being a back-up), I'd like to see them actually bring Lin off the bench and start Douglas or Cook. Douglas is basically a defensive specialist at this point (meaning that's what gets him on the court, not that he's a lock-down defender). Cook would really play limited minutes but could give the team some scoring punch early. 2nd unit would be Delfino, Morris, Lin, Smith/Aldrich, Jones.

What, are you a member of the Anti-Lin Police Patrol?

Newsflash: this is a message board and people can post what they want, as long as there's no direct personal attacks/profanity/offensive content.

If someone wants to post negative things about a player or team, they're free to do so. No one owes you any explanations for what and why they post.

When Lin was a Knick i posted basically he had good potential, he didn't "suck" and i looked forward to him trying to mesh with Melo and Amare. He never seemed to want to mesh, he got hurt, he then left. Basically i argued he didn't suck, not that he was an all star. That was practically every Lin argument i had. ANd when i argued he was good, it was based on the numbers that he was actually putting up. He wasn't scoring 9 pts and getting 6 assists and looking lost. He was putting up ridiculous numbers.

Now i'm being told he is absolutely fantastic on defense (what?) and also things about his game that are not true. Basically people who saw him play 6 minutes want to tell me now that he's gone, he's become this transcendant star. Despite me literally having seen every minute he's played since last year.

There are more people on this board who will argue Lin is great based on 9 pts than admit Melo is an all star when he scores 30. Based on the numbers he's putting up and the impact he is having on games, a Knick fan who said he was very good last year and not as good this year is just being honest.
