Which I think makes it more impressive that he's winning games with these guys. But it also makes his stats less impressive because somebody has to produce on that time. He has the second highest usage rate in the league after Kobe. The ball is in his hands the whole time and he's playing huge minutes.



Novak is a knock down shooter though, I know since he used to be a Clipper. He could make those shots with the right set-up. Jeffries is a good hustle guy and defender, he is a lesser Ariza in that regard. Walker also has big potential, he was just ridden by injuries iirc but those 3 are solid starters/bench players, they're no garbage time players that are on the verge of being sent to the D-League. Not saying they're legit stars but they are different from player that seats deep behind everyone else and only appears when the team is down by 30 with 2 minutes left in the game and still manages to fuck up every play.

What do the Knicks do with Baron Davis when he comes back? I've read one suggestion that they start Davis and bring Lin off the bench for energy, but I can't imagine they can bench Lin now. And doesn't Davis want to become an actor anyways?

There's a bigger chance Davis won't become healthy enough to play anyways than that happening. Plus come on, Lin is the Knicks right now, they can't bench him. I've read somewhere that the Knicks kept selling out his shirts and jerseys, Lin Jersey is also the #1 selling in NBA stores. The Knicks also hiked their ticket price by ~25% ever since Lin started so business-wise and if DAntoni wants to remain the coach, he better not bench Lin.

Eh. they aren't stupid. They won't start BD unless JLin loses 5 of 10, at minimum. He's earned a long fucking leash. I mean they were a .400 team before this shit started.

Lin could score 20 less per game from here on out and still be a far better PG than Baron. amnesty that POS

I love how douchebag Floyd Mayweather said it's only b/c he's Asian that he's receiving this attention... if he were black nobody would notice. No dipshit... it's because NO ONE in NBA history has ever done what he just did in his first 5 (now 6) starts!!
post #5758 of 27243
that's 7 starts not 6

nets, jazz, wizards, lakers, wolves, raptors, and today the kings

all garbage or mediocre teams


and then they play the hornets on friday. lol

i see this turning into a 10, 11 game streak until they play the heats next week. but hopefully melo will be back then

heats and hawks will be the first good teams they play. maybe the mavs. shit mavs game is going to be fun. i want to chandler to own them

fuck Floyd. he's a fucking racist piece of shit. he gets away with saying all kinds of racist shit because he's black, so he should just shut the fuck up while he's ahead (see Pacquiao, Manny)

Floyd Mayweather is still relevant? Who would have thunk.
