    As much as I hate to say it, Pat Ewing has now become my #2 all time favorite NYK player. :/

    I'm sure Mike Brown will have the Lakers trap Lin on a consistent basis. This will be a good litmus test to see what we actually have in Lin (starting caliber PG that can lead this team or solid backup PG that can keep the system flowing when the starting PG sits on the bench).

    Note: Not being a hater. I love what Lin has been doing. Just trying to bring a balanced and fair critique.
    Ok. He's for real. He was trapped all game but played it perfectly by scoring and not forcing too many passes. He's a smart player. He played to what the defense gave him.

    We still need a backup PG though. The offense really went stagnant when Lin was on the bench and we can't have him playing 38 mins a night in this brutal shortened season. Remember, last year the Knicks started to falter when Felton began to struggle because he was getting tired. He had to play too many minutes out of necessity because the offense looked horrible when he went to the bench.

    Hopefully Davis can make it back at some point. At least as a backup.

    If BD can make it back as the back up PG for the Knicks that would be a really good look for the bench

    But do you guys really see Davis being a team player and only getting to play 10-15 minutes a game after being a starter his whole career.Im thinking that his injured back will help him make that decision that much easier.So hopefully he will!!

    Haven't really watched any TNT games but I'm sure Chuck will look for something negative to say about Lin since he plays for the Knicks.

    ^ Lol last night they did a segment of where players who are currently overseas should go when they return to the NBA. When they got to Aaron Brooks he said "I thought NY was a good place for him until that Lin kid came in" looks like even the chuckster is buying in..

    WOW!!!!!!!

    Mark Stein reports

    that I'm told Knicks had begun lining up potential replacements for Lin, chief among them vet Mike James from their D-League affiliate in Erie



    Sources with knowledge of the Knicks' thinking told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that the Knicks had been giving strong consideration to waiving Lin before his breakout game last Saturday against New Jersey.

    Sources told Stein that the Knicks, given Lin's unguaranteed contract, were leaning toward releasing him before Tuesday's 6 p.m. deadline and had begun targeting replacement point guards to take Lin's roster spot, with veteran guard Mike James from their affiliate in the D-League (Erie BayHawks) chief among them.

    But after Lin's 53 points combined against New Jersey on Saturday and Monday, New York scrapped its plans, with Lin's contract becoming guaranteed for the rest of the season when Tuesday night's deadline passed.
