Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

It would be better to have Asik as their 3rd big and Patterson as their 4th. They are a legit PF and C away from doing anything significant in the West regardless of what Lin and Harden do... case in point, they lost tonight despite Lin's virtuoso performance.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

The Rockets' best 5-man unit so far this year in terms of +/- is Douglas-Delfino-Parsons-Morris-Smith. Interesting.

It's not one night though, it's a consistent pattern when the ball is put in his hands. He can do this. Again, I don't think you should build a team around him to put up 20+ shots a night but he can do what he did tonight, it's not a fluke. Guys with his skills have a place in the league, it's a matter of him finding the right situation and molding himself into a better all around player.

Not exactly the same, but he should look at the career of someone like Jamal Crawford. He's not a perfect player. He has very glaring weaknesses and you shouldn't build your team around him, but he has a very specific set of skills and abilities that not a lot of people have. It took him some time, but he's learned to use those skills and become a good NBA player with a defined role that he's now embraced and learned to excel at. Jeremy Lin needs to do the same thing, but he has time.

And a career-high from Asik.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

Also, in Lin's breakout game as a Rocket, he gave up Tony Parker's first career triple double on the other end of the floor. Just saying.

So that unit is up against a lot of second units I take it.

Those 5 lead the comeback from 17 down against the Lakers 5 of Hill-Clark-Ebank-Meeks-Morris

This but I think Lin has a shot of having a big impact without being relegated to a 6th man.

Re: Rate Jeremy Lin

See the mods on this board are so lazy (not you RollWithEm). All they have to do to strike up activity is start one of two threads-

Jeremy Lin, sucks or not?

or

Kevin Love, franchise player or not?

It's the new Kobe vs ____________

Like I've always said, he's somewhere in the middle of the people who think hes a star, and the people who think hes a scrub. He's a decent starter, more so when used properly.

You put any PG who is used to controlling the offense and pair him with "Me first! I want the ball! Give me the ball!" Harden and they're going to underperform.

Harden is a chucker who absolutely dominates the ball any time hes on the floor. Its a terrible pairing with Lin. In Houstons defense, I don't think anyone knew he was such a ballhog prior to this season.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for rep, I can tell you I don't have any and I need to spread it around. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you continue to post like you did now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

You need to look up who Bryan Mills is.
