    I said when we got him Lin would be an Horatio Alger story, just didn't get the country right, said he would be a star in China but damn it might be right here in the Big Apple.

    Kid has a future, he even made JJ look good, speaking of JJ the other JJ Jerome James said something about Lin when he was down in the D-League. Seems Jerome followed up his first 25 point D-League game with a pretty poor second one and he said it was because Lin wasn't in the game to create shots for him. Lin can make the game easier for every front line player we have.

    Here's his highlights if you haven't seen them.

    We all know to take this with a grain of salt. I think the funny thing is we were so excited to begin the season and still remain starved for consistent solid play...

    Lin has flashed.

    And Tyson the "Mad Byson" (thanks 8's) Candler is representing, win or lose! I still see potential with our current squad, Mike better recognize.

    Default Hustle Lin Agin

    so, is coach Macaroni a genius for finally playing Hustle Lin, or is he a moron
    for not recognizing what he had, until he was forced to play him because of
    the back to-back to-back schedule? we've seen this throughout Macaroni's reign,
    NOT playing bench players and then surprised by performances (N8 the great).
    Perhaps Jordan is the next great undiscovered talent, sitting and sh*tting on the pine,
    while Girafferies gets starters minute. Granted, the Giraffe had a career game as well,
    but I think Hustle Lin had a lot to do with that. I hope D'oh-lan realizes that Macaroni
    is clueless unless the answers are dropped in his lap.

    Anyway, I'm glad there's an official Lin game thread, because there's just no need
    for 5 threads at once, unless folks just love to start threads to see their name in lights.

    Whether the kid can keep this up remains to be seen, but this was, by far, the most
    enjoyable game of the season, watching Hustle Lin come into his own, and cementing
    what a dozen KO posters have been saying all along, we need a PG, we have a PG,
    play the f*cking guy!

    Congrats to Hustle Lin, a well-deserved MVP of game, and thus far, of the season.

    Looking at those highlights, Jeremy was simply Lin the zone last night.

    Listen lets not kid ourselves....No coach has given LIN an NBA shot ...
    Dantonio just like Larry Brown ( has rings ) is very stubborn and set in his ways .

    Antoni did start Landy as shooting guard in his rookie season and has stuck with him through his slump this season and we are now seeing Fields playing better then he ever has.....Not sure Landry would have that shot on another team...

    whats mind boggling was the Celtics game.....If he played LIN in the second half would we have back to back to wins ?

    Lin stated " against the Celtic"s you cannot get open shots you need to pass the ball due to their trap defense "........There is no way that though ever crossed Shump's mind or TD's mind during a game...

    The guy has a high Bball IQ.....so at least we now have HOPE...

    If he starts at PG and Fields at SG....we will have the smartest backcourt in the NBA....too bad their is no Q and A for all-star weekend

    If I had seen aliens landing on my back lawn I would have been less shocked than I was when Lin sat out the second half against the Celtics and Toney Douglas took his minutes.

    Just proves what a moron our coach is. Let`s be honest, if last nights game wasn`t the third game in as many nights then Lin wouldn`t have got a minute.

    One wonders what might happen if Jerome Jordan would get a chance. Under this coach he has two chances. None and none.

    Jeremy Lin , as he said, he still hasnt practiced along with the starting line up... wait til he gets more used to them... and he'll get better at shooting.... anybody can get better at shootin.. but no one can get better at basketball IQ that jeremy has.. so i think he'll do great

    I have been saying he is worth a look, his limited playing time with the knicks since his call up, has been very productive in small minutes. We need a PG, he doesn't have to score, but needs to keep his assist numbers up.

    I have been saying give the guy a chance...that said, NJ is terrible,so lets not get ahead of ourselves. He's a young rookie, who has potential...he undoubtedly will have some bad games and growning pains, Undoubtedly will have a lot of pressure to deal with as a rookie especially because we are PG deprived. For now I think Lin would be a great back up(better then TD,bibby and shumpert at PG. TD and Shumpert styles not true PG, better for shooting guard)....eventually Lin maybe a good starter if he progresses, but he should be eased into it. Not thrown to the toughest position as a rookie to save his teams season and coaches job.
    I'd like to see him get 20-25 min a game...increasing if he stays consistent.

    I love Lin, I'm happy he has started getting minutes. but this was his first big game. His first big minutes and He came through big time in this one game...lets see if he can play consistently before we put him in the top 5...
    the potential is there! but I expect hime to settle into a 10-14 PPG with 6-9 APG.

    The high IQ players are taking over

    1. Nash
    2. Rubio
    3. Lin
    4. Rose
    5. Andre Miller

    Rose is the only exceptionally athletic player in the top 5. He's also not dumb.
    see above...he's not top 5 untill he closes out the season after performing top 5.

    The biggest criticism if Lin was he plays out of control...well when I watched the highlights of last nights game...he did look a little wild, but his speed, passing and wildness reminded me of someone...steve nash. If you ever watch him play, he plays fast and looks out of control penetrating, but his passes are true dimes and he doesn't turn the ball over so much. Nash is controlled , just looks wild because of his speed, I see that in Lin, maybe a pipe dream but I hope he can develope to that level!
