Lin plays awesome again tonight against Detroit's starters and basically showcases how bad of a coach D'Antoni really is. In 10 minutes, he's done more than Dogulas has done the season combined yet Douglas gets 23+ minutes a game. He drives, dishes, steals passes crisply and accurately, and knows how to finish at the basket.
Somebody please tell me why he's not getting Douglas' minutes? Somebody please try to say I'm wrong, I gotta hear this.
Jeremy Lin is proving that he is the second best PG in Knicks' history behind Stephon Marbury
Yeah, Knicks and long-term planning don't mix well. Hence the question of when he'll be gone.
MDA: "He shows he can run a pick and roll and he's got some instincts of a point guard and maybe we'll look at that a little bit more and see where we're going because that's what we need,"
I think what i like most about Lin is the fact that he see the Screen on Defense and fights through it. He's just fundamentally sound. Also he seems to have chemistry with Jerome. This clip is highlight of him playing non garbage time in Golden State. He can't really score but look at his defense. Everytime, pushes the big man off the screen and stays in front of his man.

Toney Douglas is 10x the athlete and plays much smoother than Lin, who always looks outta control, but Toney has terrible court vision...he stays running into the Pick every time.
Real Talk tho, if we want to be a better team we can't just get rid of Toney Douglas either. We need him off the bench to give some quick points. His numbers will probably greatly improve in a strictly scoring role.
Looking at the limited view of a stat line for j.Lin he's got one thing I like alot. It's not his scoring, it's his assists. Every game he's played he's gotten a decent amount of assists for his time on the court.
Granted I have not seen the games(time warner customer, F* dolan and his greed) So I don't know if he's getting burnt defensively...but I like his stat line. Dime heavy. especially since they brought him up...I don't see why they don't play him more.
I like T.douglas as a player, he is the kind of guy you want in your locker room and at your practices. He's a hussler, plays hard and seems like a good teamate. But that said, he's not a hugely talented scorer. he's average at best and he's a sub par PG. We can have any taller Guard that hussles will have the same or better results.
Defensivly, I like him covering the other teams PG, but if he's our SG covering the opponnents PG, who does our PG cover?
I think, ditch T.D. or trade him. he's got no place in NBA.
Baron and Lin, should be PG's
shumpert and fields, SG's maybe keep TD third string with a limited minutes as SG or PG
Carmelo and walker SF balkman
Amare and jefferies PF novac
Chandler and Jorts or Jordan C

The thread that started it all
Believe, when no one else gave him a shot
@JalenRose tweeted this:
BTW...ANYONE that says "I knew" or "predicted" that Lin could perform at this level is clearly not being honest [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Here's my tweet back to him:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] You're actually dead wrong. Knicks fans have been calling for linsanity for months. We saw the talent! [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
