everyone gives props to coach Macaroni for "discovering" Jeremy Lin after sending him to D-League
(for one game triple-double), and bringing him back to Knicks for beginning of Linsanity.
then today's NY Times has a piece on Lin playing with Steve Novak, as a sign of things to come.
what's been overlooked is Jerome Jordan's play with Lin, as well as JJ's going to Serbia and putting up decent numbers, yet he is a DNP with Knicks, or remains garbage time player, so who's to say he's not the next elite player languishing on the Knicks bench? with addition of JR and Baron, there's no room for Jordan, especially with Girafferies getting quality minutes.
from Erie Bayhawks site:
<<LIN PICKS UP TRIPLE-DOUBLE AS ERIE DROPS MAINE 122-113
PORTLAND, Maine -- The Erie BayHawks (10-12) picked up some firepower on Tuesday with the assignment of Jeremy Lin and Jerome Jordan from the NY Knicks, and they did not disappoint, leading Erie to a 122-113 win over the Maine Red Claws (7-16).
Lin was the story of the night, picking up a triple-double with 28 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds in his BayHawks debut. Jordan picked up where his fellow Knick left off, with 26 points and 8 rebounds on the night. The pair led seven BayHawks in double figures. >>
IMHO, Jerome Jordan deserves minutes, yeah, I'll say it, at Girafferies expense.
I would hate to see this guy let go and have him flourish and realize his potential elsewhere.
but with most big guys, coach Macaroni and his clown assistants just nod their heads and take credit
for Linsanity, with no minutes for Jordan on the horizon. IDK.
