I bet LINS turnovers will drop, now that he doesn't have to handle the ball 40+ minutes a game.People loved giving C'ANToni credit for lin, but his system actually hurt lin also, 7+TO's a game was a direct result of handling the ball so much, TO's will happen when you have to do everything for the system to run.
I stopped watching the knicks after Ewing left.
If Lin is gone, i would stop watching Knicks basketball and i'm sure many here would feel the same.
WHY DO THE KNICKS ALWAYS FOCK UP A GOOD THING?
We baby 2 so call fake stars that can't play defense or finish in the paint.
Lucky you. I've been watchin the Knicks since 1990. I don't know if I have the stomach for Starbury part II though. Let's hope it doesn't go that route.
They can't play:
Handle the rock
Finish in the paint - every game they get their balls sent back into their face 2-3 times a game.
What aspect of their games are they good in?
It's been debated over and over again. Lin's turnover on a per minute play isn't that bad. The guy essentially handles the rock over 70% of all the offensive plays. Take a look at Lin's number and compare it to the other rookie point guards. Why do people think Rubio & Wall have better potential to be superstars in this league?
Lin knows there is greener grass out there, i mean who the hell wants to be on the back of the newspapers everyday made fun of. look at todays ny post they put up a tombstone linsanity is dead. he got all from Knicks as they got off selling his merchandise. maybe if he went to Lake Wales high school he wouldnt understand money isnt everything, but hes Harvard material and should see the Knicks are not the place to play for.

Lin is not a superstar nor a star in the NBA yet, but the potential is there.
He's essentially a rookie folks. We all know what Melo & Stat bring to the table and there's a reason why these 2 guys never won a championship. If Lin can win 8 straight with scrubs, why can't we surround him with less selfish players and play Basketball the way it's suppose to play. Team! team! team!
EFF this ISO BS!
i find this whole melo amare vs. lin stuff funny because it's all the same. either melo/amare are controlling the team or lin is controlling the team. either way somebody is hogging the ball. melo and amare need to be the top guys on this team, and i don't understand why it's an insult to ppl if jeremy lin becomes a 14 pt 7 asst a game role player. evrybody needs to know their roles on this team which is something d'antoni clearly didn't do a good job in establishing.
p.s. hopefully now under woodson landry fields won't take anymore wild layups with 3 guys waiting in the paint for him.
For me, it's hard not to take sides. I've read so many other posts from people who became fans solely because of Jeremy Lin. So, I guess we're all rooting for him to not only do the best for the team, but for himself as well.
At this point, even if he is pushed to the side, he can only learn and continue to grow as a player.
