    R.I.P. Linsanity Feb. 2012 - Nov. 2012

    I've been watching and playing basketball for a long time. Linsanity ranks as one of the most enjoyable stretches as a fan of the game, ever.

    I was hyped up for this season; Lin had a chance to prove himself in a new town, for a new team. And now, those hopes are all but shattered.

    Lin is playing in a "system" which works against him and therefore works to the disadvantage of the rockets. Lin is most effective with a high usage rate, initiating the offense. Instead, he's been assigned a passive role, doing nothing but shooting an occasional spot up jumper.

    Meanwhile, harden is struggling with his predictable iso-ball/1 on 1 mandate. He's shooting 43% from the field and has more TO's than assists.

    The glorious run during Linsanity, and the promise of being one half of the flashiest, and best backcourt in the league, will soon become nothing more than a distant memory as Lin fades into mediocrity and obscurity.

    RIP Linsanity, and thanks for the memories.

    It's still so early. I think you're being a tad hard on him.

    He barely knows where he is. Give the kid a break to figure out his environs. His game will follow.
    "Why can't we tell the world that [as the Raiders' coach] you refused to play games in the segregated South, holding out to the point where they were canceled?' And he would stop me dead in my tracks and say, 'Hey, kid -- I didn't do it for publicity. I did it because it was right.' "

    Lin is still recovering from a knee surgery. He is 2-4 months away from 100%.

    Even so he is still putting up 12/6 with 2.4 steals per game.

    Wow lol just some opinion, I thought it was news that he tore his other knee up or something, that would've been terrible. Give him more time.

    Not sure if that is a shot saying he will never be a star or that his knee may never actually recover. But that is true, much rarer now days with medical advances but he could never full recover but he would likely get to at least 90-95%.

    That's ********. He tore his meniscus in late March and had surgery on April 1st. There is a six week recovery period. Ronnie brewer had the same surgery in July and is pretty much at 100%. Stop making excuses for him.

    Bro it's an MCL injury he suffered 8 months ago. Either he has glass knees or he's a *****

    i dont know if you're being sarcastic or not, but no one takes 1 year to recover from minor meniscus surgery. his timetable was 4-6 weeks. not 1 year...lol.

    Ronnie brewer had the same surgery in preseason and hasn't even missed one game or talked about it.
