It wasn't a Dolan hates Lin scenario. It was more of a Dolan's pride was bruised when Rockets matched the offer. If no offer were match and Lin came back with nothing, Dolan would have signed Lin.

And who are we to know that Lin wasn't going to start off playing like his old self again under Woodson? Rockets games are far, far different from Woodson. Woodson wants Lin to control the tempo and feed the ball to EVERYONE.

McHale wants Lin to feed the ball only to Harden and then park the corner 3. No tempo, no flux, no wavelengths, no chemistry, nothing. Harden stops the flow of the game all the time because EVERYONE around him spectates. Occasionally he'll pass the ball somewhere but you could almost always tell the guy is going to take the shot base on his dribbles.

Watching last night's Houston/New Orlean's game. I could almost hear Woodson yelling at Lin when he is parked on the 3 point line. "You're not the SHOOTER, Lin, MOVE...LET'S GO."

And during the timeout Woodson would grill Lin for camping the perimeter. "Position yourself mid-range, Lin, don't settle for outside shot. Attack, kick...pass. Draw your defender in with you and kick the ball out."

Andrew/Martin what is the longest thread in UK history?

Also in your expert opinion most polarizing Knicks player post Ewing/Starks teams

- Starbury
- Melo
- Crawford
- Lin

??

Of all 4 of those players I would think Lin gave us the most ridiculously fun stretch of basketball. Crawford gave us his crazy game winning shot in Denver.

Also, does anyone know if Ultimate Chicago Bulls has a thread on Omer "The Gift" Asik ?

I know i'm not one of the big 2 the question is directed to, but polarizing doesn't even begin to describe what Jeremy Lin is.

This to me is just below the realm of politics and two notches below Religion. I don't know what it is, but it approaches cult status imo.


Does Omer have a thread??? You don't even have to Asik.

You know what's hilarious. If you could go back in time, you could do some awesome stuff true. But on the way you could go back to last season and go on this forum during the height of Linsanity and say "By August half of you will be describing this kid as a selfish, two faced teammate and be glad he is gone." and just get the reaction.

I already did that. 98% of the people killing Lin now are the same people gushing about Linsanity in numerous old threads. Don't believe me Google it. If Brewer, JR and Felton were traded today people would be bashing them the same way. Some say this attitude makes you a "REAL" Knick fan

I can't speak for everybody else, but Lin had an all-time great 9 game run, but after that he hasn't been anything to "Julius Cear" anybody in the back over.

And I've felt that way for a while now, no Flip-Flop John Kerry in me.

I can respect that. You are part of the 2 or 3%

What were you saying during Linsanity though not late May?

Long story short is that Lin has not played well, thus far, and the Knicks came out for the better - for now - with Felton, Kidd and Prig.

Lin will improve but the Knicks don't have the luxury of waiting for their starting pg to improve since they are in a position to compete now unlike the Rockets.

I will say I did not think Lin would be as bad as he has. I am actually surprised.

THIS IS why i laugh at all the " good feeling threads" the love carmelo and love Brewer threads... how can you really take them serious when they were viewed as scrubs and knuckleheads adn selfish before they got here, and will be ridiculed as soon as they leave.... it makes no sense, whatsoever..

I am not one who likes to bump up old threads, but boy it would be interesting to see those bashing lin now had to say during linsanity...

take away his shooting % which is at 35% do you really think 11/4.5 boards and 6 dimes a game is BAD? really? I surely don't expect his shooting to stay at 35%.... If I told anyone pretty much a rookie player is avg 11/6/4, they would go nuts, we tell you his name is lin... and it is BAD... go figure..

Right. Plus 2.5 steals. I'd expect him to get his FG% up but he is in a pretty bad situation in Houston. Only 1 of his 14 teammates is a good offensive player.

exactly he's in a terrible situation but he chose to flirt Houston. I still think Houston is one frontcourt player and a new coach away from contending for the playoffs. They need to utilize lin and harden's playmaking ability with a big who runs PnR. Hell maybe they get desperate and take Amare off our hands. But the Knicks don't do trades without getting fleeced in the deal so Shumpert would be a goner. Despite how great Grunwald has been

Pipe dream but doubt Morey is THAT desperate. Utah has Al Jefferson and Millsap and have to choose one of them and trade the other. Probably keeping Favors.

I think they still have enough cap space for a max FA --> Josh Smith is a FA after this season.

I actually think they are just a coaching change away from making some noise. I like the front court players they have. Well, maybe not Parsons. So I will say that they are 1 coaching change, 1 SF and 1 backup PG away from making some serious noise.

The problem is you can't simply ignore fg% and a steep decline in his scoring simply to make him look better. You can't ignore his shaky ball handling in order to make him look better. His boards and assists are average for a starting pg. His steals are elite though. The totality of his stats are clearly underwhelming. I don't see how anyone can attempt to say otherwise.

Also, Lin is not a rookie. I wish people would stop pretending he were. Lin has been in and around the NBA for two to three years now. He was on an NBA team for practically all of last year. He is not a rookie. He is not on a rookie contract. STOP IT!
