    Okay, although I started watching basketball because of Lin, I root for
    the team as a whole. Obviously, it's a group effort and there's talent
    throughout.

    But, I've never been a fan of anyone or anything before. I never under-
    stood why people became so "fan"atic. But, now I do. Kind of.

    So, please don't despise (and I'm not addressing this to you personally)
    those of us who are on cloud 9 because we happen to enjoy one of
    the players more than another.

    Lin + Amare for Gasol. You would get a player who relies on Skill not athleticism for a player who once had athleticism but for some reason can't use it any more and an up and coming top 10 PG. Baron could keep the seat warm putting up similar production to Lin while we searched for another League Average Point Guard.
    B hyphen, or B minus?

    B- for a rook he's great. We all know what he does well. He still gets exposed on defense by more athletic PG's (i mean...Norris Cole?!?!) and has a hard time fighting through NBA screens...which i guess gets better with time.

    Any exceptional and dominant player can lead a team to mutiple championships, doesnt matter what position he plays.

    Magic Johnson - 5 x as a PG before his premature retirement
    Michael Jordan - 6 x as a SG and SF
    Bill Russel - 11 x as C

    Too bad those players only come along once every decade or two.

    I started watch NBA, because i very like Cinderella story. I think knicks make amazing job in team strategy and media, because Jeremy Lin is something good.

    Yes, Lin can't run like Rondo, and yes Lin can't dunk like Rose, But Lin have one thing who dont have Rondo, CP, Rose, and mass NBA players. This one thing is Basketball IQ.

    And for me great pleasure to watch, how play smart guy agains best atlethes in league.

    2012: I knew exactly what you meant! And, I agree that it's a pleasure to watch the Knicks, and that Lin is something good, indeed!

    Just different standards dude.

    To me there are many great NBA players now. Truly!

    Do you know how good they must be (and must have been for a long time) in order to earn them a spot in NBA?

    So they are all good players to me. And whoever shines a lot in this kind of competitive world is a great player.

    This is Jeremy Lin's team. He's running the offense and getting everyone involved.

    Agreed.

    He is becoming the leader of this team. It's strange though, because he's basically a rook and he commands that kind of respect. Turning the team around and being able to handle himself in crunch time will do that i guess..

    And he can grow into an allstar caliber player.

    It's his personality. He does it quietly and humbly. Though, I caught (for the first time) his hand signals last night to get the players closer to the hoop. He's so likeable (to me) and the team can only get better. There's a lot of talent there, and the excitement level is tremendous.
