I think a guy like Paul Millsap would ever do them some good. Pau would be perfect, though. That would even be a good destination for Boozer once he's amnestied.

Where would you rate him on the Norris Cole scale?

As usual you're completely wrong. If he were playing in the Philippines Basketball Association system he'd be Michael ****ing Jordan. Even if Jeremy Lin is Hokkien for Smush Parker.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

He's not very good. At all. His best role is probably coming off the bench so that he can play with/against subs and have the ball in his hands to make things happen.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

Lin sucks. We let Lowry go for a pick and Dragic walking. What a **** up. Thankfully, Omar Asik has been awesome.

Considering players like Hibbert, Deandre Jordan and idiot McGee who are getting paid 10-13+ million per who are producing around or below Osik's current level, Osik at an average of 8.4 is a bargain.

My only faul against him is he needs to learn to finish around the basket better as he has missed some easy buckets. Hopefully that will come with time though as this is his first season with any significant playing time.

He rebounds and defends very well, but he's a horrible offensive player that really drags the team down. He's a bad passer, a bad shooter, a bad finisher, and has bad hands. He should not be a starting center in this league IMO.

The dude has only played 18 meaningful games in his career. His minute total in these 18 games is already over half his total minutes played last year (66 games) and the year before that (82 games). They guy has a lot to learn obviously, but he has not been some horrible terror on offense.

Other than his decent offensive rebounding, he's been pretty abysmal at the end of the floor so far. I'm not saying he can't get better. I'm just saying he needs to.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

I haven't watched enough of Houston to actually argue this myself, but I've been hearing Asik's passing has been a pleasant surprise.

Exactly. People talking about how he can be Mike Bibby and all that nonsense if he just had the ball in his hand non-stop, even if that's true, that team is winning 25 games a season. If you need all of those personnel and systemic stipulations, he's nowhere near a superstar. I really thought everyone got over the drunkeness of Linsanity, and through a vicious hangover realized in retrospect how foolish they looked dancing on the table tops and declaring him the next Steve Nash. I guess some are still drunk on him.

Steve Nash was averaging 7 pts a game and shooting 36%
from the field when he was 24 years of age. So, no one wants that.
