Lin coming off the bench gives two things:
Up tempo energy & from what we have on the bench would be the scorer
Jeremy Lin needs to improve his ball handling, recognition of what he is seeing, understanding he is the couch on the court, on the ball defense as well could improve...
Lin could become a spark off the bench, but Knicks and Melo want to win now, to do that you want a Veteran Point Guard to guide these 3 scorers is the best way to get it done. Is Kidd the best option, yes he just won a Championship two years ago from doing what he will do for us be pass first point guard.
Lin is our future, not our now. But you see the $ dollar signs on why he should start you are as foolish as those comments that were made by the coaching staff. He will be a part of the team, and learn from experienced players in his position while training and proving he is ready to take those reigns.
LinSanity was a fad, something made to sell Merchandise. 25 games NOT the full season... LinSation was all good points but we saw the negative ones because we are the true fans... Jeremy Lin won a few games but because of his turnovers we lost just as many... Lin is getting paid because of his hot commodity right now, is it justified ~ NO!
Everyone is looking at the marketability of the New York Hype surrounding this kid, unfortunately he is still 50/50 on what type of player he could be! We hope he will be that guy, but from a skill set Jeremy Lin has "RAW POTENTIAL"!
Get your facts straight!
