    Big break for Lin. No doubt in my mind he comes out a better defender and ballhandler after this experience. Goodluck and high five to JLin.

    Exactly what I was thinking... This is better then anything a player can do in individual work outs with a trainer. Only way to get better is to play those better then yourself.

    Hopefully Chandler, Lin & Melo will gain a bit of extra chemistry and feel for eachother in the Olympics.

    I'm hopeful that he'll be well monitored and take the right frame of mind in regard to exceeding his physical limits. If he does that, it's an excellent opportunity for a big brain like his to go up against the elite, expand his repertoire and study the game.

    It's a Lin Lin.

    Lin needs to prove he is durable enough to be an elite PG,

    this is a good test for him to see if he can handle the workload plus the regular season

    It's a Lin Lin situation! Hahahahahah.

    Look, they threw the guy to the sharks. He went from 0 minutes to 35+ a night, and he was getting banged around like a bum, because the players were initiating him.

    He will be okay, just needs to get some rest and come into next season PREPARED to be the starter. He will come in ready, no doubt in my mind.
