    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.

    They have 3 overpaid role players in Harden, Lin, Asik that are paid like superstars

    It takes a real LEGEND to win a championship in Brooklyn, and I think we've found that special person. Deron Williams only a matter of time before the gold comes home. If there is one guy who can do it, its you! We love you Deron and hope you retire in Brooklyn!

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

    Lin was a marketing strategy from the start for the Rockets, I hope he picks up his play eventually.

    Signing Lin wasn't a horrible move, but its perplexing because they let 2 superior PG's go in order to sign Lin.

    Dragic at $7.5m is putting up 16 & 7 on 47%.

    Lowry at $5.6m is 18, 6 & 6 on 55%

    Lin at $8.4m 10 & 6 on 34%

    Imagine if HOU had kept Dragic & Scola

    Asik
    Scola
    Parsons
    Harden
    Dragic

    That's a really good team actually.

    LMFAO show me a superstar making Asik money. Thats the kind of money Emeka Okafor laughs at, is he a superstar.

    Learn how to measure market value plz

    Are we sure they didnt need the assets from trading/releasing those guys to get Harden+Asik?

    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?

    The only asset they used in the Harden trade was TOR's lottery pick.

    They could still have signed Dragic and traded Lowry and gotten Harden.

    Also, even without that TOR pick HOU had pieces to make a deal, it might have cost them Morris instead but HOU was clearly the team targeting Harden all along the hardest.

    I think they could have still made a deal.

    Glad to see you back. You got 2 of 3 right. Harden will be a star in this league.

    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.

    So they had the cap space to get Asik even without releasing Scola?
