He's not Terry Allen, but he's definitely NOT Stat.

I would drill down into the statistics of why Stat is horrible, but the naked eye actually tells the story as well as the statistics do in Stoudemire's case.
and it doesn't in Lin's case lol??

Go check out almost every game Houston played, the PG's seem to have very good games against them, has that for a metric

I have not read one article this year saying Lin is even remotely an average defender, this year its been he's been bad defensively, but no way you would see this, right?
