    Default Lin never practiced with Amare and Chandler

    As a coach, isn't it your job to have every possible match up to see what works?

    After Jeremy Lin's 9 points, 3 rebounds, and 6 assists in one half performance against Houston, he said in the post game show that he never played with Amare and Chandler in practice...ever.

    How is it possible that Jeremy Lin, even being the 3rd or 4th string PG, never practiced with Amare and Chandler? EVER!?!?!

    How is this possible?

    I give you one guess and two hints: Begins with "m" & ends with "i"...

    Default Macaroni

    Macaroni

    from Wikipedia:
    There is indeed a kind of animal, neither male nor female, a thing of the neuter
    gender, lately [1770] started up among us. It is called a macaroni. It talks
    without meaning, it smiles without pleasantry, it eats without appetite, it rides
    without exercise, it wenches without passion.

    The Italian term maccherone, figuratively meaning "blockhead, fool" was not
    related to this British usage.

    Dude. This is the same coach that saw JORTS walk into his gym and immediately thought 3 pt specialist.

    He's an idiot...

    Lin looks nervous on the floor at times, but i do like his penetration to the basket , i also like how he doesn't rush things he plays at his own pace

    Don't be surprised if you see Chandler running our offense and shooting corner threes... that's MDA, let's go!

    Here's to Lin getting 15-20 minutes tonight. We're playing the Pistons, so I mean, c'mon.

    The guy has never practiced with the starters.....
    Dantonio has probably never said a word to him....
    Every minutes this guy plays can be his last so he is always pressing...


    Detroit got crushed last night.....Let Lin start

    People chill out! Lin is trash, he didn't make it on the Warriors and Rpckets, both lottery teams.

    You guys are so obsessed with D'Antoni...this forum has become a place for whining about D'Antoni and how he's slowly killing polar bears, because he's melting the poles.

    Honestly, get a grip, we got your point.

    Lin wouldn't play a single minute besides garbage time for Phil Jackson either and why should he practice with the first string? He's a 4th string PG, I'd rather have Shumpert or Bibby practicing with the first string, because they're playing most minutes.

    You guys crying for Lin to play or even start is embarrasing, he's complete trash and a D-League player.

    Jorts is 6 10, 275. Williams is 6 9, 230. Williams should have never been allowed to play PF. He was abused by bigger stronger guys. Jorts shooting 3's should have been the furthest thing from MDA's mind.

    I cant agree at all. We have a coach that is prone to make the incorrect decision regarding a players talent & skill level. We've seen it plenty of times. I'm not saying Lin is Rubio, but because MDA makes the calls we honestly dont know whether the kid can play...
