Let him walk
Resign him and keep him long term
Resign him and trade him January 2013 with Amare
Thankfully when scouts look into Asia, it won't be for 7' glass-cannons. (Seriously, from Yao Ming to Manute Bol to Shawn Bradley to Keith Van Horn... what's up with picking skinny giants? At least Dirk bulked up a it over the years.)
I don't think Williams is one of the worst, I've seen Williams play some great defense in his career.
Lin was just seeing plays ahead of people.
Lets not get too ahead of ourselves. Jeremy Lin looks like a decent rotation player, but he's definitely not anywhere near elite yet.
Things will get harder for him once teams actually start scouting him and start forcing him out of his comfort zone.
Some games he's gonna look terrible and others will be encouraging. Welcome to developing a young inexperienced player. The key is letting him develop instead of freakin going into a panic every time he has a bad game.
Seriously these boards are really discouraging on how fast people ride the wave. You want to have a player's babies one game and the next day you want to trade him for next to nothing.
next game he isnt going to do what everyone is expecting him to do then shizzee is going to package him to guam then every one will get mad at him then the "jeremy lin is a fraud" threads will come then d'antoni will be fired again then somehow stat is going to be blamed then melo will be blamed then ca7 will suck his dick then baron davis will return then his back will get soar then his return will be postponed to next week then the cycle will go on
****** He is the only point guard on the Knicks with an understanding of how to make AMARE and TC better.************
Bibby is one who is so past his prime he can no longer defend the current speed in the league.
Shumpert needs to come off the bench. He would be an excellant 6th man...come in , make some steals and a few fast hoops with his amazing intensity but he CAN NOT RUN this team yet from the PG position.
Landry can score WHEN IT DOES NOT COUNT...his last shot in the Boston LOSE was a real CHOKE.....
I know MELO..he's playing very hurt.
He's more of a Rajon Rondo then a Lin. He has absolutely no shot. Every point he mad except for 2 mid range jumpers were off of driving inside (not that there is anything wrong with that). That being said he has great ball handle, hes really smart on his drives i loves how he tucks the ball into his chest and doesnt try anything fancy, he just looks for a score and is always aware of who his nearest man is just in case he gets in trouble. Hes an extremly smart player. He doesn't need to have a 3 point shot as long as he can shoot at least an open mid range jumper he will be fine.
I'm agreeing with Metrocard -- Lin is looking like Marbury. That doesn't sit too well with me since I still view Starbury as more of a SG or Combo-Guard than PG. As shown recently by Derrick Rose, it's a highly effective mix if you can work the rest of the team around it, but it's still not a pure PG.
The kid is the truth.
The other night wasn't a fluke.
The Golden Child is shaking out... fearless... and making Harvard like decisions.
9 points 7 assists. Zero turnovers.
Lin is making a starless team compete pretty well. Imagine when carmelo and amare are playing instead of walker and novac and jefferies.
has a couple turn overs today, but he's a rookie and should really be learning as a backup. But he will learn.

At this pace it is Failbury who will want to look like Lin fairly soon.
