19 points, 13 assists and 1 turnover for Lin and you want to bench him? This guy just went from potentially being a career-long dleaguer to carrying a failing team. People rightfully pointed out his TO numbers. He comes back after the Allstar break, delivering a 13 assist 1 turnover performance. Here is the bleedin' obvious: He is working on his game. He is able to make adjustments and he is smart enough to see what is working and what isn't. Why would you shatter his self esteem by taking the starting spot away from him. And seeing the NBA as a business, why would you the Knicks No. 1 sales argument?
QFT. Statistically he's playing better than 80% of the starting point guards in the league but not good enough to start for the Knicks? Ridiculous...
I just don't get your point. Nobody with basketball knowledge would agree with you that Melo isn't a good shooter. What does Durant's shooting mechanics have to do with Melo??? They're both top 3 at their position so...??
Why are you even criticizing ANYTHING about Melo when he had a good game???? Just doesn't make sense and makes it look like you just need to nitpick at something.
You spent the entire game thread criticizing Lin when he performed like one of the best PG's in the league.
