You and some others have been running around GT's (prior to us winning) screaming about how dumb D'antoni is because Lin is playing too much, and that Lin won't be able to finish games for us, and that you can see how tired he is.
Besides Lin and D'antoni having constant communications about how Lin is feeling during the game, and when he should be coming out,
we've straight up won (as a baseline) 3 games on our streak simply because D'antoni didn't take out Lin a moment less than he has.
D'antoni has clearly played Lin beautifully, as evinced by the play of Lin. It's really that simple, unless people have crystal balls idk about, and D'antoni has one, too, and he just doesn't follow it.
Is there some track record prior to MDA, showing what an excellent, consistent NBA player Lin could be, or that Lin has been? And that D'antoni has somehow handled him and his game worse than someone else could be expected to in such a reality?
