    Lin and Rubio are both big and strong. Lin is 6-3 200, and Rubio is 6-4 180. Not exactly small at the point.

    Watched Lin for the first time against TWolves. He was great 1st half, stunk it up a bit in the second. He was fatigued, it was obvious.

    Melo will fuck that rhythm up with his long stretches holding the ball. Lin and Chandler seem to have a great understanding.

    He's more aggressive than I expected. When you watch highlights it doesnt come across but he basically drives almost every possession and opens things up.

    Weakness so far is that he doesnt seem to have a 3 and I also noticed he doesnt go to his left very well.

    Interesting thought on the Lin-sanity business: I don't think it would have exploded quite as hard during a normal year, if it would have happened at all. The compressed schedule gave us a whole shitload of games really quickly, and also produced a bunch of the injuries that pulled him off the bench. Also set up weird trade timelines, so the Knicks might have traded for someone during a normal year.

    Marc Gasol is a load inside. the US Olympic team is going to be undersized vs Spain. and with Rubio running the point....I hope these guys don't catch lightning in a bottle
