for the last time im not taking anything away from him. im being realistic. obviously people get overlooked, but theres always people that only flourish under certain circumstances. chris duhon was borderline all star status before he came back to reality. now hes practically a ghost. the fact is if anything causes this kid to stop performing like this, itll be the media coverage and the not so die hard fans that are the cause of it for gassing him up. theres not a chance in HELL he lives up the expectations people are setting for him now. and thats going to affect him eventually. hell, with 10 turnovers its probably already affecting him.
for him to come out and average 25-8 or whatever it is, is unreal. im just pointing out there were a lot of factors aiding him. the system, the fact our top 2 scorers were out and there were more points to go around. its not him i have the issue with, its the people hyping it. hes not going to average 25 and 10 lol thats being real. and if anyone thinks he will, you dont know basketball. if that makes me a hater, so be it. we'll be lucky if he averages 13 and 8, with under 4 turnovers when melo comes back.
obviously there not gonna even think about trading him, from the marketing stand point alone. he could not do sh*t the rest of the year and hes more than made dolan money from the sh*t thats sold already. my point was we are never the team to trade when stock is high. we're the team that trades players after their stock drops, and then they resurge somewhere else.
ill be the first to admit im wrong 2 months from now if hes still ballin like this. but i know none of you guys will say a peep if its the other way around.
No one is saying he's going to average 20+ points with Melo and Amare and JR in the lineup

What the fu*k kind of fu*k boy thought is this

Lin is an extremely young player that will develop.. a better jumper... he hasn't even gone through an OFF-SEASON with a team but people are already talking about his downfall.

What about his game will go bad that will cause him to suck bad magically?

I do agree that Lin got lucky because of the system he's in, but he's performing at a high level within the system. Even Steve Nash had between 3-4 turnovers EVERY game within this system. You talking like he'll average 7 turnovers a game forever, that will OBVIOUSLY have to drop in order for him to sustain solid team play. And it most likely will, it's not a matter of physical ability, it's a mental part of the game that any smart PG can improve on.

Chris Duhon's numbers were no where near as close as what Lin is putting up...and Felton shot a horrible a.ss percentage. Those PG's played completely different from Lin too.

I watch Lin play and it's clear that he plays a smart game and puts the offense in good positions. I don't see why he can't develop into a Steve Nash like player... he's a 6'3 PG, that's a huge advantage.

People talking about his downfall has to answer the question of, what part of his game is going to go away that's he's shown?

You bring up Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo as comparison's of who he'll never be... that alone tells me where you meter is on the knowledge of this discussion.
i agree lin plays smart MOST of the time. ive said 9 times hes down to earth. hes also made some dumb a.ss plays, and tried to do too much, which we're watching right now with him taking bad shots and turning the ball over. but people will say "everyone has a bad game".
and is that really your response to me bringing up derrick rose and rondo? lol look at my post history. i been here for like 10 years, and i damn sure dont talk out my a.ss. i didnt say he will never be this or that. i said hes not them RIGHT NOW. i only brought them up because there was another thread titled "point guards lin is better than" and people were saying hes better than rondo. thats insane to me. did i say is was you? no.
hes shooting an unreal percentage off the bat, thats not going to stay up there. thats a fact. hes not ray allen. its one thing to play off adrenaline, and have this extra energy. his legs arent going to be there soon enough for him to be making all the jumpshots hes making. as for a.ssists, if a point guard has 8 a.ssists and 7 turnovers, do you consider that a good game? yeah hes had a lot of a.ssists but to me thats a wash because his a.ssist to turnover ratio is all that matters, and its terrible. hes also below average on d, which was clear when trying to guard rubio.
i dont say sh*t just to say it. i also dont hop on bandwagons. if i dont think someones going to have this success a month from now, its not being a hater. its being a fan of basketball and giving an opinion.
