    How seriously do you guys take D'Antoni's comments about the possibility that Baron Davis could replace Lin as a starter?

    I think this is nothing more than D'Antoni being respectful of Baron Davis, and that it would actually take a huge drop-off in Lin's production before something like that would seriously be considered.

    Absolutely no chance. End of discussion.

    MDA talking about Boom taking over the starting PG spot is nothing more than a way to keep both Lin and Baron motivated.

    Today's NYT has a story, already reported elsewhere, about the possibility of Lin and BD playing together. According to the article, Davis would take primary point responsibilities, and Lin would play off the ball.

    I would not like this for extended time, mostly because it would screw up the rest of the rotation. Also, I think they would be a very poor defensive combination.

    But for playing a team like Miami which is capable of exerting an unusual amount of pressure on the ball-handler, it might well make sense, at least for stretches.

    Good point. Baron is the better ball handler and that's why coaches like D'Antoni get paid millions to figure this out.

    He can't handle a good defensive team on the road yet, his handles are to sloppy and he's outta control.

    Kid is just thrown into deep. It takes time before he knows how to adjust his game. You can't call a rookie who's been playing that well a fraud, especially looking at the money he makes. He makes typical rookie mistakes, he deserves some credit, but when he gets tough times we should play Baron with his experience. No big deal.

    It's to early to say he's a fraud. But if you ask me was he the reason we lost the game today, my answer would be yes.

    *Lin had the same number of TO's as Baron, in 11 more minutes of court time

    4 boards, 5 assists, some clutch baskets late.

    And how about all the misses around the rim by Melo and Atari, off Lin passes?

    Not a good game, but not horrible. If these are his "****" games, which I think they are, he is far from a fraud.

    Especially w/ his novice experience, and playing teams who won't roll over for him.

    If our max contract superstars ever start playing like it, and with the authority and expert control you'd expect from them, it will only make the job of Lin easier.

    On top of everything else, Lin has been asked to stabilize the entire ship of the team, and harness the performances of Melo and Amare -- on top of his own game.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... Ooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhh....

    Aaaaaaaaaagggghhhhh. iSaYughh!!!

    That is one of the more perfectly written posts I've seen since the cretaceous period. An attempt to add to it would do you injustice.

    + green.

    I'm a huge Knick fan but it pisses me off how people have no reality of life because they are so biased by their team

    I dont understand how anyone thinks Lin is better than Rondo. The only thing that Lin is better than rondo at is shooting. And in all honesty thats not that important especially in Dantoni's offense when Rondo would be surrounded by all of our talent.

    That being said there is no way Boston would trade rondo for Lin

    Rondo is okay. Still overrated.
