Re: Lin Wouldn't Run Plays for Melo
Lin is a legitimate starting point guard. His upside is pretty big. He lacks consistency at this point but he's shown that he can control the tempo of a game and is a pretty big impact player.
Last year his biggest flaw was TOs. So he's reduced them this year. Then it was his shooting. Now he's at 43% and he's at 15ppg and over 50% shooting in his last ten games. He's a hard worker so he can only better.
He still needs work going to his left and needs to stop leaving his feet before passing. That should improve with more experience.
He's a good sized point guard (6'3 and 200lbs) who can score from anywhere on the court, plays decent/good D, and loves to pass the ball.
