    Maybe Dantonio played him because the time was right and he milked all he could from Schump. If LIN looked foolish on the court or a D leaguer as some on this board said then Dantonio would have been ridiculed and for surly lost his job...


    Give the guy credit and luck......LIN got to watch the Knicks, practice, talk to the coaches and just maybe the time was right....

    That is because he has never been given the chance. The small min. he has gotten so far in the NBA he has some good stat to show for it!!

    A post rooted in the most basic and essential parts of reality, and logic.

    Amazing.

    Who'd of thunk that an undrafted kid, bounced around his entire, short NBA career, could benefit before being thrust into a heated New York Knick's starting PG role, by spending some time with the Knicks, and building up their game and confidence, D-league play notably included?

    Fact is, nobody knows (not that anyone ever even could) "when" Lin could have first started for us, at the earliest, and reaped maximum success.

    Throwing at points in time like mid-way through a Celtic game, or anything like that....is just retarded.

    We can add this to one more reason why any intelligent human, even if they didn't know **** about basketball, would heave huge money on betting on MDA being a good coach, vs a terrible coach, simply by looking at the people and caliber of arguments that go against him.

    It's comical, and borderline-pitiful, that so many actually have the balls and lack of awareness to act like they are arbiters of when this point in time was for Lin -- when he "should" have been starting, or playing.

    Just be happy D'antoni is doing more to run your basketball life, and not yourself, and sit back and enjoy the epic assurance and play of Lin.

    No doubt, if we win a chip with D'antoni, not much will change the kool-aid drinkers.

    *Lin received no athletic college scholarships

    *Lin declared, and went undrafted by the NBA

    *Repeatedly sent to the D-League by the Warriors, never received a fully guaranteed contract (even a basement level variety)

    *Picked up and almost immediately dropped back to waivers by the Rockets

    Now, 5weeks after being picked up and coached by Mike D'antoni, who Lin himself thinks, and anyone who knows **** about basketball knows, is a great pairing....is the starting New York Knick PG, and is lighting it up with his play.

    This is what we know. That Lin is exceeding expectations, to momumental degrees, under the coaching and system of D'antoni, which was rounding itself up prior to Lin starting, regardless.

    And that no other team, or coach, in the league could be reasonably expected to be capable of doing what has been done.

    But maybe D'antoni is just lucky that Steve Nash decided to go from aged and aging borderline all-star to lock-HOF'er....that Felton went from borderline starter to borderline all-star and gave us success last year from the point.....

    And that the entire NBA universe didn't have the genius of some of KO's finest to check out [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and see what a clear world-beater Lin is.

    How many slashers had we had since his stay here? Several.

    Lin may like D'Antoni's "easy going" basketball, but he might have been "forget that, I'm gonna attack the rim", which D'Antoni doesn't encourage much.
