By the way, only 3 teams have never lost 60 games in a season. It looks like after this season, they'll be just one - the Utah Jazz. THe Lakers and Knicks are the 2 other teams.
Someone good enough to start on teams weak at his position but you can still be a decent team if you have real talent elsewhere. In other words a legit NBA player who is decent but not all-star. You have superstars. All-stars. And guys below that. Lin is a guy below that. Belongs in the NBA but no one is dying to get him (aside from his marketing benefits). But he can still help you. And, of course, worth a max-contract.
