We should consider rebranding our team, New York Lins would sound appropriate. :D
No they are very different... Lin is a Harvard grad ... Marbury probably isn't smart enough to graduate high school if it wasn't for basketball...
Lin is a smart player... Steph not much...
Steph was much more atheltic but couldn't make his teammates beyyer even when he had KG in his prime...
Lin just beat the Lakers with the best player on his team being Tyson Chandler that Oman Landry fields...
LIN " Coach Dantoni is an absolute offensive genious "

In case you missed it
Man get the f*ck out of here you fake ass boxer, with your female style wide ass hook. Come to my gym with that weak **** you'll get floored.
205th Street and Jerome Avenue.
BTW...Marbury has made a lot of guys better in his career...he took this roster to the playoffs
Keith Van Horn
Most of those guys were injured and at the end of their careers.
Marbury did what he could, but a bum ass fool would hate so its really on you.
Whats up! My first post and I think I caught Lin fever. I've been a faithful since the Bernard King days, rode all the highs and lows of every year. But this kid takes me back of the days of Starks and Mace. Exciting players nobody knew about, that energized their team.
I read this post. And couldn't stop laughing.
But Marbury was an elite point guard, and young, by the time he got his career manhandled by Isiah and Larry Brown.
Brown did his best to destroy David Lee's career, too, let's not forget.
Steph is a wild man no doubt, but how many NBA players are these perfect players until they get into the perfect situation. How many mature in the public's eye into those "team players" everyone always talks about, when they finally get under a legit franchise and coach and team that works to their strengths and builds up their flaws.
I have no doubt that if Kevin Garnett came to NY during the age Marbury did, Garnett would be labeled with the "cancer", "basket case", "loser" tag lines by the time he left.
I see Lin as having superior pure PG mentality and mind, to what he lacks in Marbury's sheer athleticism. But it's not a bad comparison; better than Westbrook, imo, which ppl are starting to compare his game, too.
I think all the stars were aligned for this to happen...
Dantonio quoted " this is once in a lifetime "
Dantonio looks like we feel....its almost like you cannot contain the excitement...its that wirey feeling like the old days :smokin:
Lin's agility is insane tho...he has great control of changing speeds...excellent timing...tends to out smart his guy with his body movement.
iSay, you know how Wade penetrates to the basket? But you can't stop it? Thats how it reminds of Lin.
I see Lin having a Kevin Johnson type career.
Btw, am I wrong for boosting Lin's rating up to 79 on 2k12?
Type of player NYK fans can feel truly proud of.
His grassroots story and style of play -- especially coming from the PG role -- will help balance the pressure and lack of fun the team seemed to be mired in prior, as a whole. Takes so much pressure off Melo/Amare, on and off the court I bet.
I might have to buy league pass for truncated season if it does't look like Dolan is going to do right by NY Knick fans.
