All these posts still come back to poor coaching.
D'antoni is either afraid to make Stat & Melo play both ends of the floor or he is just at a loss on how to coach.
Really, would JVG watch Lin get pressed / double teamed like no other PG in the league and not give him help?
When Kidd forearmed Lin to the floor in Dallas why did no big man step up and send a message to Kidd?
Lin is really a rookie, plays his ass off, tries to cover defensive mistakes by Stat & Melo, etc., and never complains. Lin just about has a Wanted Poster Dead or Alive on his head and gets no help from his coach or star players.
Would Ewing or Oak allowed their PG to get hammered constantly? No!
Our coach is in over his head and he knows it, so he just takes his paycheck until he gets fired.
