He had a monster game tonight off the bench with 25pts 7 ast and 5 rebounds. Dont get me wrong, I've watched Lin since the summer league where he took over a game and went neck to neck with johnwall and practically locking john wall down. Hes seeminly productive stat wise and his stats per 36 minutes are alot better. Given the oppertunity and more minutes I think he can be quiet of use for he knicks.

Yup, Easily the better PG out there over Rose, Paul, and that ***** Williams. He'll make his run for MVP in the next season with 35-8-10 numbers on 70% shooting

hey guys stop mocking the knicks. I know I find it funny everytime a PG of their gers overhyped but I've been watching this kid for a while and I always thought he had something good to contribute. He is a very good passer, he can become a solid 10/8 player given minutes.

No it is not just one game. For a while now he has been contributing well and has opened a lot of eyes with he way he plays and it has beeen impressive to know someone like this wasnt even in the nba a year or so ago. Given the oppertunity to play big minutes he can provide his team with a lot of soupport and he proved many peoples theorys today.

He might not be a great starter, but he can be a solid back up. This is one game and it wasn't against a good team; however, it was against a great PG, against someone who many consider a top 2 PG. His defense looks solid and he has good court vision. As of now I think Lin can be a solid back-up PG.

From a Knicks fan-

Personally, I don't think this is a fluke. Lin plays a lot like John Wall, and people always have a hard time sticking to him. Especially if he’s able to develop a jumper. Hit the gym Jeremy!

Anyway... yesterday Nikola Pekovic had a career high 27pts.. take a minute to digest that... ok so today the "Scrub of The Day" brought to you by your NJ Nets; meet Jeremy Lin!!!

The Nets are a depleted team with no C and therefore no interior defense whatsoever. The Knicks doubled the Nets with points in the paint tonight. Thats more telling than what Jeremy Lin and Jared Jeffires did tonight.

The Nets defended their Big 3 really well considering they have NO frontline and forced a scrub to beat them. That scrub just happened to play really well tonight.

Hope he keeps it up thou cuz a good PG is the key for the Knicks to play well and i doubt Baron is gonna play more than a dozen games this year.

Punk
02-05-2012, 12:00 AM
Yeah, It's not a fluke because he did things like this in small doses. I remember he got his big break in the summer league killing John Wall and the Warriors ended up out bidding him from the Lakers.

So, yes we found a future PG for our bench and possibly as a starter. I'd compare him to a taller JJ Barea.

Pushes the tempo, finishes around the rim, great defense, good court vision and a high IQ. He's a keeper to develop.

Did Pekovic play against a top 2 player at his position? Yes the Nets' interior defense was bad, but Lin was defended by Deron Williams. Williams is a good defender he didn't just beat your interior defense he also beat Williams. His defense against Williams was good as well. Defense and court vision are two aspects of the game which stay with a player and Lin showed he has both. He likely wont become a great starter, but a solid back-up is more than possible.

Also Pekovic looks like a decent player too.

Deron Williams was NOT defending him most of the night. That was Mr Farmar although Williams did defend him at times.

Lin played with great energy. Thats it. Nets on the second game of a back to back and Knicks on the back end of their back to back to back so Lin who gets NO playing time was the freshest body on the floor therefore he was all over the place.

I never said he cant be a decent backup. just saying that this thread (which i knew would happen) is premature.

The taller J.J Barea comparison is ok i guess but like i said. Wait till he does it against a team that actually has a C to at least pretend to defend the paint.

Doubling the opponents in points in the paint screams fluke to me and proves that this was more the Nets lack of an interior presence than the Asian Mamba taking over.

U won with that same team the other night . And Lopez was never this super defender in the paint so let's not pretend the nets have ever been great defensively. Ur hate for the Knicks knows no end. Maybe when u get D12 u will find something else to do than throwing jabs at the Knicks

His Shot isn't great but his ability to penetrate defenses is crazy..hes shown he can do this on more than one occasion.. The crazy part..

Typical Knicks fan reply...

Brook Lopez while not elite defensively is at LEAST average. Lets not pretend like you know anything about Brook Lopez. The Nets struggles even with Deron Williams should prove how much he helped the Nets. Either way ANY C would have helped tonight. Lets not pretend like Mr Lin would have been driving the paint all night if the Nets had a had a any semblance of an interior D.

That team we beat the other night BTW was on a days rest and was against the worst team in the league and a team that has sucks offensively and has trouble generating points in the paint.

Lets not try and compare the Knicks and the Pistons. While the Knicks are indeed playing like garbage.. they are not playing bad like DET.

Anyway back OT... your PG abused a team with absolutely no C and i would wait till Mr Lin does this against a team that has a C before claiming him to be the "PG of the future".

knicksfan42
02-05-2012, 12:49 AM

Absolutely unequivocally untrue, Lin was not only guarded by Williams most of the time, but scored the vast majority of his points against Deron Williams. I don't know what type of **** you're trying to pull with this "Farmar defended him most of the night" bs.


Lin played with great energy. Thats it.

He played good D and showed he has good court vision.



I never said he cant be a decent backup. just saying that this thread (which i knew would happen) is premature.

Yea what you tried to do was make it seem like the prevailing opinion amongst Knicks fans about Lin was similar to the quote you posted (one which didn't even include a username by the way).


The taller J.J Barea comparison is ok i guess but like i said. Wait till he does it against a team that actually has a C to at least pretend to defend the paint.

Well the taller JJB comparison is about as far as possible overrating of Lin has gone, no better than John Wall sentiment.

He's looked good with NY so far. D'Antoni must start him next game. See what he has. At worst, he's a servicable backup PG when Davis arrives.
Once teams figure out his tendencies though, that's when we'll know how good he is

True. D'Antoni needs to play him more to see what he's really made of. But there are players like this. Barea was "trash" before he got minutes....then ended up tearing the Lakers and Thunder apart last season. Also look at Gortat. Had basically 10 minutes a game in Orlando, once he was traded and got minutes, he's basically averaging 16/10/2 blocks a game. Let's hope this kid develops well!

I wouldn't call him Knicks PG of the future, but given his performance tonight and comments below from Chandler, I believe he deserves more minutes:

nyknicks NBA New York Knicks
"He has been breaking down guys in practice for awhile now. He just needs to play more minutes." - @tysonchandler on @JLin7 #Knicks


JaredZwerling Jared Zwerling
Tyson on Jeremy Lin: "When we play 3-on-3, he kills. He's a problem. It wasn't just 1 guard. It was all the guards. Coach had to play him."

If Chandler statements are true, then D'antoni just proved that he just sucks at coaching, especially with putting Tony Douglas all this time, instead of trying out Lin with more minutes.

Knicks do not have a run and gun system with this current team so thats false. But anyways yeah it was only 1 game and there needs to be some consistency. He knows how to get into the paint and looks to pass first, which is what the team needs. I don't think he'll be a consistently good defender though but we'll see. If he can play with energy and get into the paint I can't really ask for much more.

okay this post will address majority of whats being said in the thread


Its only one game, typical knick fans overating and the OP probably only saw this one game
No, Lin has many other good game and solid games. I watched him in the summer league a year ago and heard about how he was doing in golden state. If a teamate like tyson chandler can recognize lin who he sees more than us, then it is true that lin does deserve more playing time. D'antoni just sucks and coaching and is wasting time with toney douglas and that new rookie.


Overating knicks players after one game?
Look at this game against the lakers. In limited 17 minutes he scores 13 pts in a win against my lakers.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=403ZUJxiS7w


he wont play like this again it was a one time thing
I dont know **** about the knicks but I found it interesting that a harvard man was in the nba and always watched over his progress. He can do this again and again, after his career high against the lakers he got even better and led the knicks to a win. everyone just needs playing time. he has very good ball iq and knows how to pass. People with High ball IQ make great decisions.

And yes I'm not a knick fan and I dont know anything about them . I'm typically a person to laugh when I see iman shumpeet sigs and comments, but Lin is for real.

Get him some playing time and he will develop, get better, and at least be a solid backup.

I think Lin is going to have a long career in the NBA. The kid hustles and plays a very smart and controlled game for being so young.

I've seen him live up in person in a pickup game during the lockout and he shut Gilbert Arenas down while at the same time destroying him on the offensive end.

One thing I know for sure, at this present time, Lin is a lot better than Gilbert Arenas. #Witness

He's not 6'10. He didn't just score over 30 points. He doesn't have two first names.

HOWEVER, I thoroughly enjoyed his time on the Warriors. He made that team a contender and I don't understand why my Golden State Warriors let him go JK. I kinda wish we still had him lolz.

Yeah, I didn't get to finish. I watched up to the end of the 2nd quarter (then the feed went out on the stream). I followed the game until it was 72-71 ....I went to bed thinking that I'd find dantoni fired today :(.

1st half, which I saw...Lin was ok. Drive and some good passes.
3rd quarter, which I followed comments & statsheet... He ended up 10-5-5 but was missing shots. His offense just isn't that good.

So, that's what I saw. Maybe u should I stayed till the 4th?

A lot of these posts are comical, at best.

The kid had a great game against a very good player and pretty bad team playing for a team thats a mess right now. Give him credit and move on, seriously.

Is he "the answer" or any non-sense like that? Who knows... Its not the point right now anyway. Point is, he has played the position well enough in his limited time to earn more time and thats about it.

The fact that D'Anphony hasn't given him any burn only reflects his inabilities to actually "coach" a team.

what happened to Iman "Jesus Christ" Shumpert?

Iman still plays. He's good. Better than Lin. But the Knicks seriously need a pure PG, and Lin is the closest to that.

Iman is more of a scoring PG or Combo Guard. Iman is doing what we EXPECTED of him when we drafted him: getting steals and playing pretty ok Defense. He's made rookie mistakes, but they are what they are. He needs to get better at passing the ball (which is still better than Toney, or Bibby). But Lin is even better than Iman at passing/setting plays. btw, overall, they're all still below what you want, but this is what the Knicks have.

The problem is that TOney Douglas has been putrid this year for some reason. Yet, D'antoni kept playing him. That is why everyone was happy to see Iman get some of Douglas' minutes before, and why people are happy that Lin got some of his minutes again.

Toney is good, but damn, has he been bad this year. His defense has deteriorated under D'antoni (yes, he started out real good when he came into the league). and his offense this year has been so, so bad!

Lin can be a stopgap starter this season and a good backup next year. Lin has shown flashes of good play, albeit in garbage time, but last night against the Nets was definitely a cause for optimism, but not necessarily a thread considering the hate that Knicks fans get for threads they don't even start. Lin is the only true point on the whole damn team, which is why there is excitement in the fanbase. When you are deprived of something for so long, just the slightest glimmer of hope can tend to lead to overreaction. So while I doubt Lin will ever be a star, he can be productive off the bench and maybe as a starter.

Only time will tell. I'm hoping he can be a stop gap for now and then eventually a solid backup pg. Knicks don't need him to put up great numbers every night. They just need a guard who can get into the paint and make the right decision from there, whether its taking the shot or dishing. Also, finally a guy that can run a pick and roll. He even made jared jeffries look good tonight LOL

no knicks fan thinks lin is the answer or savior to knicks troubles.... but it would be nice if he could keep toney douglas on the bench a bit more and become a rotation player. This was a career night for lin that i dont expect to repeat, but i expect him to continue to do a better job finding our stars and moving the ball better than toney.... which should help this team.

All I ask of Lin or any other Knick PG for that matter is to run the offense and make the right pass.. Hit the open jumpshot to take pressure off of our Superstars.. If he can do that he will be great for us..

No matter what.. The missing ingrdient for the knicks is a capable PG. Once we get that then we can truly gauge this team.. Until then we will continue to stink..

I would like to see what Lin can do against a very good defense.. Utah should be a good test on Monday..

I never crowned him pg of the future. If there is a Knicks thread ur all over it with negativity.

To lose because of Jeffries and Lin stings you but it shouldn't . And speaking of typical is there ever a time when ur not throwing jabs at the Knicks . We stink right now and ur in the lead for D12 in a two team race between Nets and LA. Why are u so mad???


Typical Knicks fan reply...

Brook Lopez while not elite defensively is at LEAST average. Lets not pretend like you know anything about Brook Lopez. The Nets struggles even with Deron Williams should prove how much he helped the Nets. Either way ANY C would have helped tonight. Lets not pretend like Mr Lin would have been driving the paint all night if the Nets had a had a any semblance of an interior D.

That team we beat the other night BTW was on a days rest and was against the worst team in the league and a team that has sucks offensively and has trouble generating points in the paint.

Lets not try and compare the Knicks and the Pistons. While the Knicks are indeed playing like garbage.. they are not playing bad like DET.

Anyway back OT... your PG abused a team with absolutely no C and i would wait till Mr Lin does this against a team that has a C before claiming him to be the "PG of the future".

What I find absolutely hilarious and extremely indicative of PSD and the majority of sports' forums is that 90%+ of the people criticizing or even talking about him are people who didn't even watch the game. Most of the people talking dislike the knicks, could be on the west coast etc. yet somehow find time in their night to turn on the knicks vs nets game on a saturday night?? It's all just posturing at this point. If you actually watched him play and compared it to the pg play we've had of recent, you would know that our offense tends to stagnate with TD in or in the fourth quarter, but not with Lin. He can dribble penetrate, which opens up the rest of the floor.

Yes, it wasn't against an elite defense, but looking past that you can see the skills that he has. If the kid can put up 10 pts and 7 assists than that's all you need in the Knicks' offense. You just need someone to give Amare, Chandler and Melo the ball in places that they can succeed in. I'm cautiously optimistic, but it seems most of the people should just give their opinion and just take a wait and see approach, instead of acting like a petulant child and baiting everyone.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIIo6GNW70k

Here are all his highlights from that night. Only about a 1/3 of his points came against Deron Williams and it mostly Deron going under the screen and Lin being hot but you cant expect Lin to drain those all the time. He was just hot that night. You think the scouting report on Lin said to play him tight cuz he is a deadly shooter or did it say to force him to drain the shots that he made? His penetration has always been there but the way he scored just shows how little the Nets have in the way of interior D.

When he penetrated against Deron it was mostly off of picks against one of the worst pick and roll defending teams in the league and we had no C to defend the paint whatsoever. Lets not forget that Lin was also the freshest player in the game. The Nets playing the end of a B2B and 4 games in 5 nights while the Knicks were on a B2B2B. Lin killed the game with high energy.

Yeah, It's not a fluke because he did things like this in small doses. I remember he got his big break in the summer league killing John Wall and the Warriors ended up out bidding him from the Lakers.

So, yes we found a future PG for our bench and possibly as a starter.

Pushes the tempo, finishes around the rim, great defense, good court vision and a high IQ. He's a keeper to develop.
...and yet, the dubs still let him go.... :facepalm:

I feel stupid even having to make this post cuz i know you cant be this much of an idiot and you must be joking but..

Lin who gets no playing time was the freshest body out there against a team on the end oa B2B and 4 games in 5 nights, one of the worst pick and roll defenses in the league and a team that plays without a C or any semblance of an interior D.

The Knicks were also on a B2B2B so Lin abused a bunch of tired legs when his team was playing tired.

Like i said, Lin is good at penetrating but since when has he been a good finisher? Ever since the Nets decided to play Jordan Williams and Shelden Williams at C because their 2 C's are out.

i provided a link to all his highlights from the game. How about you watch it. Lin was only guarded by Deron for a portion of his plays and i only saw like twice that he penetrated against Deron and those were mostly thanks to high picks, not ISO plays so idk what your talking about.

The rest of his plays against Deron were again either off a high pick where Deron went under the screen cuz Lin is not known for his shooting and when Deron gave him a lot of space daring him to drain the J... Lin just had a hot hand. Nothing that can be done.

It was enough of a stretch for the Nets to hope to contain "The Best Frontcourt In The League".. which they did for the most part and an unknown scrub who had fresh legs decided to use his high energy to kill the Nets. :shrug: What can we do?

Friday Nikola Pekovic scored a career high 27.. the Nets dont have the players to contain EVERYONE. They do their best on the stars and hope the scrubs remain scrubs. Solid strategy for such an injury depleted team.

Its 1 nice game. The guys in his 2nd year and has barely played. Theres no reason to label him as something he may or may not be. Hes plays smart and looks like he works hard, but 1 game at a time.

No Knicks fans are labeling him as anything other than a better option than Toney Douglas, which is undeniable. This thread is just fans of other teams who haven't watched the Knicks for more than 2 minutes at a time saying that his stats were inflated by a "run n gun" system that we havent run for years. This should be closed honestly nothing is coming out of it except the bashing of Knicks fans, and this time it's actually undeserved

Note to Knicks fan:

Deron Williams leads the league in TOs and the Nets AND Knicks were dead tired. Everyone was exhausted.. except Jeremy Lin who gets no PT.

Jeremy Lin simply killed the game with high energy. Thats it.

Haha the Nets were tired? This was the Knicks 3rd game in a back to back to back. Don't use that tired excuse here, every team is tired. Except the fact that Deron got out played by Lin. Get your haters goggles off.

Point was that your scrub gets no PT so there was not anyone on the Nets that could match his energy cuz were all tired.

If you're talking about the "Shumpert is the best two way player" thread that was an obvious troll thread.How can we keep threads in the Knicks forum,if non Knicks fans start threads?Lin is "the next big thing" on the Knicks,if he is a capable point guard.That isn't saying he is an all star.

I laugh at all the haters for a couple reasons. For all the posters who cant handle threads being made, very simple solution, dont post in them and ignore them. The real issue is that they want to kick us when we are down, but they know the Knicks are a threat nonetheless. We will get our acts together and they will only hate more. You call us overrated, I see it as not reaching our full potential.

Jeremy Lin isnt a scrub. He has the respect of superstars on his team. He has earned kudos from his teammates. He has shown with every opportunity he has recieved that he belongs in this league.

Golden State werent that bright to cut him in the first place and they knew they made a mistake thats why they tried to resign him. The kid can play and if he works out for us hes a cheap alternative to what we were looking to do next season.

Now for all the haters who are going to attempt to quote my post and all that crap let me be real precise with my next statement. By no means am I calling Lin the GOAT, MVP, a superstar ect. He fits the current needs of this team and he can be a surprise for us the way Starks was a surprise when he came to the Knicks. All he has to do is play solid defense, distribute, and control the tempo of the game. I think he is more then capable in doing that.

Haters gonna hate.

How are the Nets the worst team in the league? They are far from a good defensive team but they are nowhere near the worst team in the league. They are decimated by injuries and had to sign Bogans just to have 8 healthy bodies a few days ago.

These are the worst teams in the league

Yes...he has played ONE good game...and YES it was against the Nets...But keep in mind he was playing against D.Williams and had a hell of a game against him. Plus, he has better vision and a better presence than Douglas or Shump at point. I think they should see him as the starting point, with Shump playing the starting 2 guard and have Landry come off the bench as their 6th man. Shump is far superior in defense, but I think he is better off as a shooting guard.

At the Guard position, we have had Fields, Shumpert, Douglas, and oh wait til Davis comes back. The team is 9-15. Before we anoint Lin as the next allstar PG, lets see how he does for the rest of the season.

hey guys stop mocking the knicks. I know I find it funny everytime a PG of their gers overhyped but I've been watching this kid for a while and I always thought he had something good to contribute. He is a very good passer, he can become a solid 10/8 player given minutes.

Why would you make this thread in the NBA forum then?

02-06-2012, 11:16 AM
I always thought Lin had some game the few times I have watched him play in summer league and with Oakland, but after all this is said, the kid is averaging 5 PPG, and hasn't really done much in the league his rookie year or this season.

Premature and misplaced thread by the OP.

It's funny. So many people are bashing Knick fans for "overrating" Lin in this thread. Not only did a Knick fan not even make this thread, but the Knicks fans that are in here arent overrating him at all.

Having said that, yes Lin is the Knicks PG of the future. He will be starting within the 10 games, so that would make him their PG of the future. Kid looks good, and he does exactly what the Knicks need. Just play consistent basketball and get your stars good looks in and get them in a rythym

I don't think thats a good comparison at all. What similarities to you see in their games? Nate can shoot, Lin can't. Lin can pass, Nate can't. Lin has I.Q, Nate doesn't. I guess the only similarity i can think of is their quickness but they play completely different games.

-He won't average the line he put up the other night.
-He penetrated and got the ball to Amare better than any other Knicks PG this year.
-You can't discount his Harvard pedigree, which means he should be able to play smart ball .... something the Knicks desperately need.

I hate all this, he went to Harvard so he is an intelligent player. I'm not going to get in to how Harvard is overrated, but I think someone who went to a school with a huge basketball program probably had a better "basketball education" than someone who went to a famous law school.

Lin will be ok, nothing to rave about but they'll probably put in Davis when/if he comes back and compared to what they have had in the past, ok at PG is huge upgrade.

I see you erased your original statement since, like I said, it didn't make sense.

And in response to your new statement, being the 3rd PG on a team in the NBA sure seems successful to me.

Although Lin is more likely the 2nd PG on this Knicks team all things considered. An even greater success!

If you attend/attended Harvard, you are reasonably intelligent. That much cannot be argued.

Now, I never said Lin was an "intelligent basketball player." I implied that he is intelligent, and as such would be able to learn a system/defer to better players/be the true definition of a PG, which inherently requires some intelligence to do well.

Add to that that Lin also happens to be blessed with relatively good talent, I think he can make a name for himself. He's already been the best PG the Knicks have thrown out there this year; PG being the operative phrase.

You can be mentored in the best collegiate program, from a basketball legend, but that doesn't guarantee anything. As long as you're smart enough to exploit weaknesses and talented enough to employ them, you will have relative success.

Lin last two games and really the only games he's been given minutes.

25 pts 7 assists on 10/19 shooting

28 pts 8 assists on 10/17 shooting tonight

Both games Lin look over late in the 4th and led Knicks to a win, especially tonight he put on a show in the 4th and they had no Amar'e or Melo tonight.

Its unlikely his points stay this high, but kids got talent and could be a very good PG and get this team back on the winning track.

yea, i really wish he didn't just say in his interview that he "thanks god, my lord and savior".

Thats why so many people hate Tebow

Please Lin! Don't give credit to anyone else but yourself! You earned your way and you're responsible for it. No one else!

People hate Tebow because he sucks for the first 3 Qs and does his Tebow Stance. A lot of players thank God before interviews.

EDIT: They also hate him because of Skip Bayless. And unfortunately for Lin, Bayless is already hyping him up (somewhat):

Jeremy Lin 2nd straight amazing performance for Knicks (w/o Amare, Melo). Harvard grad bounced around but knows how to play, not afraid.

Well, I was at a game when tony Douglas dropped 28 and 6 asts, so forgive me for being cautiously optimistic. Im not knocking the guy, he might've just became my favorite player, but yea its been two games.

Jury is still out, cant base anything on 2 games. To say otherwise would make you foolish or a homer. He looked good tonight though. Would have liked to seen him have some gas in the 4th, I dont think he had an assist in the 4th.

i agree... but to be fair he played 44 minutes and assists arent that easy to come by when the line up is walker, jeffries, novak, chandler. Ideally the Knicks will get another pg (maybe baron) and let lin play 20 min off the bench.

He played 45 mins and the entire 2nd half. He didn't have a 4th quarter assists but made some huge scoring plays in the 4th which ultimately sealed the game. Two 3 pt plays and a huge 3 pointer late. I'll take it.

No way I'm gonna knock him for running out of gas when he played 45 mins. Who plays that much these days? Plus, the kid was only getting a couple mins here and there and all of a sudden plays 36 mins then 45 mins. Of course he's gonna be tired at the end of the game.

I think the most impressive stat is 45 minutes played.
