    There's no reason Lin can't become a solid point guard in this league.

    Yes, he's not going to be the next Tony Parker, but we don't need that. All we need is someone who can facilitate ball movement - in case you weren't watching the playoffs, our ball movement was DEAD against Miami. I don't know if Lin would've helped us beat them, but we looked SLUGGISH that series for a reason - no PG.

    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
    He's no JR to you

    Why do we have to build around someone to win? That's just asking for trouble. This is a team sports. This is a business. You don't build a business around one employee, do you? We build on and around everyone, all of them. Use all of their strengths as one. This is the problem when we just cater to one or two players and neglect everyone else on the court and wonder why we lost. smh.

    There is a reason why there are 5 players on the court. It can't be that only 1 or 2 players are shooting (or trying to shoot for that matter) and the rest are just running up and down the court. They are not being paid to just run, they are paid to contribute. Let them contribute. They will not be motivated to do more if they are not given that chance. Don't treat other players like they are just fillers, just to show that you have 5 on the court.

    Every team needs at least a dominant 2 players. You can't have a winning team with a bunch of role player talent (sans Harden).

    No, you don't build a business around one employee but the CEO is the guy that will take charge in growing the business. Can't have a successful business without a business savy CEO.

    How about a crew of GELLIN role-players that co-exist so well they become a lineup of Star-Role-Players.... The 2004 Championship Pistons or the Seattle Super Sonics aka the young OKC Thunder.

    Denver may have a nice group of players but theyll never be a true contender for a championship in the west with that current roster.

    I can't thank Jeffrey Kessler and @TheNBPA enough for all the work they have put into this Birds Rights case. A decision in about 2 weeks.
