The more we think we should revolve around Lin the less likely it is for us to win a championship
Lin has chance to win a championship in this lifetime, while Carmelo will win one if you gave an infinite amount of monkeys an infinite amount of type writers and they will create the works of Shakespeare. It's that type of thing.
What info do u have to base this from?
A PG main job is to improve his teammates performance on offense.......
During the time of Lin-Sanity our rookie Shump performance (and decision making) improve 60% on offense/defense to the point of being reliable as the 6th-Man and Finisher down the stretch of each game.
Do I have to mention the improve performance in other teammates.....Jefferies, Bibby, Walker, Fields, Novak.
Lin-Sanity co-exist better with Tyson Chandler than Stat & Melo.
Oh god with the Linsanity ****, thats how bad its become the entire Knick fan base is dying for easy ways to championship contention we're relying on a guy who beat up on 1. sub 500 teams 2. guys who played fresh vs guys who were playing in all those condensed games and were fatigued for the most part and 3. not realizing that it was not only Lin who played well everyone did and not because of Lin because of opportunity but even still that team would go no where in the playoffs
Lin got raped by Mario Chalmers and the Miami Heat D the defense we struggle against and you wanna go toe to toe with LeBron and Wade the next 5 years with Lin as our main guy. I like him as our PG but lets be realistic when it comes to expectations because as a fan base thats all we do and I've stopped it and let things play out
I'm saying TRADE HIM or HE SUCKS but he isn't as good as you guys are making him out to be I want him to be great but he isn't there which is my point, most teams built around PG's rarely win titles, Magic, Isiah and who else really, teams are built around dominate wings and bigs because serviceable PG's are good enough to help teams get over the top
Thats what I'm saying
Yes, there are about 10 PGs who are playing at a better level than Lin but Lin certainly is not ranked around 25 like you had ranked him. The grass is not always greener on the other side!
So that one game against Criami is a good indication but 25 games is not enough??
Maynor and Session are better PGs?
If you stay out of Melo and Lin, you are a great poster. That's all i am saying.
Regardless he's young and still learning and we have to realized that if we dont and anoint him the savior and he flops then we're back to what? nothing
I just want to be realistic that its
and yes I cant really get into it when it comes to Melo and Lin only because I feel some under value Melo and over rate Lin but thats my opinion say way you guys feel I under value Lin and over rate Melo
But I think they'll be great together if Melo gets more explosive and better off the ball player as far as cutting, coming off screens and running the floor and Lin gets better at gettin the guys into the right spots for Melo's iso's and understands that the spacing needs to be right for isolation to work
I'm just bumping this post because the arbitration date is coming up.. June 13 will decide the direction this team goes in and could dictate our lineup for the next few years. but what i've been reading on twitter suggests that the knicks will not win this appeal. im still hoping though
has the summer forum really boiled down to CA7 and orange whining about melo and lin?
I dont come hear to bitch and moan I wanna talk about how we can improve as a team.
For the record I like Lin as a player when we got him I was excited but I just have my limitations regarding his potential
