Heard from one source that last season D'Antoni would call a play for Melo and then Lin wouldn't run it. I asked Melo about this...

The only plays that can be run for Melo are Isoelbow and Chuckathree.

How difficult can it be?

If true, not very surprising at all.

I don't think it was Lin being malicious, he just couldn't run the offense when he wasn't running. He looked lost once the tempo slowed down.

Lin can't play half court basketball unless it's pick and roll.

Melo wants iso ball.

Lin's overrated trash. He was hyped just enough to convince casual fans he's of all-star caliber. Harvard grad, Asian descent, doesn't talk trash, says the right things during interviews - the perfect family-friendly, poster boy.

League's probably making a killing with all those jerz sales in China.

^^ he's overrated yes and he's more than likely overpaid.

But he is no trash. I just wished he would accept coming off the bench as a scoring guard for 20-25 minutes and play against the opposing team's back up players.

Get steals, score, pass some, rebound some. etc...

Personally I would've given Lin no more than $2.5 mill/year.

But he ain't no trash

Among other PG's:

4th in steals.
13th in APG, while sharing nearly equal ballhandling duties with Harden
3rd in RPG. (And he's playing with Asik- top 3 rebounders in the league)
Top 10 in FG% at 44%.
15th in PPG.

How is Lin trash? He's not Top 10, but he's definitely playing like he's in the #13-#19 range, which is middle of the pack.

$5 million for this year is actually accurate amount for his production.

He puts up a few good games now and then but most of the time, he's pretty much mediocre. Agree he's not totally trash, but he's getting paid waaaaay too many benjamins.
