    Ah thats what I read too, I guess fatigue can lead to bad decision making. I just read somewhere (you can tell I'm doing a lot of reading now since I don't know too much about the game in depth) that he has had a history of turnovers.

    Just looked it up while writing this post:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Don't know what to make of it. Looks like he had on average 4 TO a game over his career.

    There is this website bballbreakdown that I found and the guy said he is analyzing Jeremy Lin on Youtube by Monday afternoon. He did a video on Lin two years ago and was spot on. Lin has definitely developed since then which makes me excited since it means he can still improve.

    When you play like him changing speeds, looking for teammates and taking it to the hole, turnovers are bound to happen. Some are missed reads with teammates (which will improve with chemistry) and others are from exhaustion. Others are for going too nutty. But its part of the package.

    I recall having dudes like Iverson on my fantasy team and happy for the FGs, pts and FTs he would give me, but damn he would kill my stats with his TOs and FG%.

    I saw him in action against the Lakers last season. He's a high energy guy and listens to the coaches. Obviously pretty intelligent and he plays with a lot of effort on defense.

    His level of talent however is very limited....he's turnover prone and his decision making is questionable. Not a great shooter either.

    It's no coincidence that he was released by the Warriors after a few games and didn't make it in Houston either.


    I'd have taken Marcus Banks, NBA veteran who's a legit second or third string PG, played in Phoenix under D'Antoni.

    I pray that we'll never see Lin and Fields together on the floor, that would be a nightmare of a backcourt.....
    Just saw this, and I had to LOL inside at Marcus Banks over Lin Just goes to show that we can't judge a book by its cover.

    glad I was right with other posters on this thread knowing it was a good move to get him and that he was under rated.

    I should neg rep myself.
