    Jeremy Lin exposed

    Through the first month of the season, "Linsanity" lol is putting up a jaw dropping 10 and 6 on 34% shooting as the starter......Houston wasted their money

    Sad but you could be right (about him being exposed but in terms of finance I need more figures). My biggest fear was that his jumpshot/isolation numbers were fluky. I always told people he didnt have good courtvision so him making those shots were of the utmost importance to his playmaking/scoring efficiency.

    Asik has been putting up pretty good numbers. Harden will be a superstar.

    Yea I was wrong on Asik, he can play. If his offense comes around even just a little he's a force. Which leads to another question. Why would CHI pay a soon to be 28 year old Gibson who is a mediocre starter at best, $8m+, yet pass on Asik for the same price?

    Well, for similar reasons that Houston took a gamble on Asik. The numbers belied a huge defensive presence that Houston could take advantage of. The Bulls bench was epic defensively the last few years but those same numbers also hinted that Gibson was the more important anchor of the 2. Hes also a player they can pair with Boozer/Noah more effectively than Asik could.

    Because without Taj Gibson we have to rely on Carlos Dumb**** Boozer, without Asik we have to rely on Noah. Simple as that.

    Harden isn't overpaid. Asik is fair value. Lin is arguably overpaid but he was brought in more for marketing purposes and potential.

    overpaid is that sg on your team. You're clueless.

    Asik has been worth it. Been DPOY good so far, and will be for a long time.

    why does everyone attack the other guy's team/players?
    this thread is about Lin/Houston and at least DMF kept it on topic.

    The point is NO ONE expected Lin to keep it up, nobody. That is not even the question, the thing is when people attack him because of that. The guy is playing decent basketball other than his shooting percentages. Yet people call him a bust or overrated because he isn't putting up 20 points a game when he isn't being asked/expected to.
