Well let's see he was actually drafted, he had one great game as opposed to a string of good games, and he's making about 5 times as much money as Lin.

He hasn't done it in consecutive games, but he has been more successful over a longer period than Lin. His sample size isn't bad. If you want to look at his season numbers and say 9-7 go ahead, but over the last month...12 and 10, and the last 2 weeks...17 and 11.7

In the recent stretch he has had games of...29 and 25, 14 and 10, 23 and 7, 17 and 16, 17 and 12, 9 and 12, 9 and 14, 7 and 19, 10 and 11, and a few other pretty good games too.

But yeah, SAMPLE SIZE lmao

The Lin hype is overblown but his story is beyond basketball which is why its more talked about.

He did play a good game against the nets and is quietly putting up above average numbers this month. Props to him though

Lin's story is so overrated & overblown its getting annoying, if he wasn't asian and didn't play for new york no one would give a ****. The NBA is milking every penny of this "great story".

Players that have accomplished much more then Lin like winning championships never got the hype or praise he's getting, for example Jason Terry, that dude hit so many meaningful shots that was key to Dallas winning the championship and he didn't get anywhere near the recognition he deserved.

Lin is getting a lot of undeserved hype is all I'm saying.

Next thread that has "sanity" in the title should be about how people really lost their sanity about small things. Seriously, I kinda feel bad for people who really takes something seriously that it somewhat bothers their lives with irrelevant things. I know that you know what i'm talking about. It is nice to be a fan of something or someone, but sports teams/players should really not take over your life unless you have great correlation with it.

You still don't get it do you? Can you not relate to guy desperately trying to make his dreams come true? Lin is undrafted and is NOT expected to do the things he is doing. He has dealt with racism and a lot of other ********. He is the reason for the Knicks winning 8 of 9 games. He is the reason the knicks season is still relevant.

Wait so why isn't there a Yi-sanity. So you're telling me all you have to do is be Asian to get hype? You think Americans (non asian) care that hes asian? No. Majority of fans love the Harvard-Underdog story.

Ben Wallace was undrafted, has won 4x DPOY, 4x Allstar, he's one a championship, he didn't get the hype Lin is getting.

I'm from Turkey;
i watched Ersan a lot and i know his game...if i'm not mistaken a lot of people were considering him a lottery pick, he had a great leaping ability with good height and long arms, but he broke his same ankle twice before entering the draft, and he slipped down in the draft.

But he is a really good player,i've been watching this league for 12 years, and i can say this, Ersan could easily be a 17/12 player if he plays 30+ minutes, at the same time he can give you 1,5/1,5 in steals and blocks categories with great defense and hustle.

i just don't know how players like Lin/Ersan are getting overlooked and can't get PT unless a lot of injuries hit their teams. If Ersan can begin to play a starter role on any NBA team, he would surprise a lot of people.

KnicksPain
02-20-2012, 07:42 AM
I thought the reason for the Linsanity was because he was breaking records and winning games? Im a knick fan and Ive been sick of all the coverage, but the reason they are talking about him besides his race and unlikely story is the fact that he is breaking records and winning games for a team that was losing. And espn actually called it Ersanity on sportscenter.

Ersan is the perfect example of a player who can produce when he gets the minutes. There's a ton of NBA players who can put up numbers if they get 30+ minutes consistently. Before Bogut got hurt Drew Gooden was averaging like 5 ppg and then when he got the minutes he was putting up 17 and 8.

Last I looked, Lin has done it for a lot more than one game. In ten games, he has raised his PPG average by 12 friggin points. There's a difference. If this is more than a one game wonder, I'm sure there will be plenty of hype for this guy. And since he's not a Knick, PSD will call him a star whereas if he were a Knick he'd still be a bum.

Lin deserves the hype, he is becoming a superstar in the NBA and he was almost cut once again. It's a great story because he was finally given a chance and he was one of the game's best kept secrets. You don't like the hype, don't watch.

In the recent stretch he has had games of...29 and 25, 14 and 10, 23 and 7, 17 and 16, 17 and 12, 9 and 12, 9 and 14, 7 and 19, 10 and 11, and a few other pretty good games too.

But yeah, SAMPLE SIZE lmao

:rolleyes:

With the teams 13 - 18 record he has clearly made them a better team. I say they ship bogut for picks at this point clearly they dont need him anymore. They have a certified stud!

You cant compare this kid to Jeremy Lin. Lin is a PG this guy is a good rebounder. Lin is the main reason why the knicks went on this winning streak due to his scoring and facilitating. Ersanity lol has helped his team stuff the stat sheet and still stay mediocre. His impression on the game is clearly not as impressive as Lins. So yes lets compare sample sizes. :rolleyes::facepalm::rolleyes::facepalm::facepalm:

I made that title as a joke, and a point that there are other players doing good things. Lin hasn't been doing anything thats insane, he's just playing good basketball and so happens to have a story and plays for a big market team.

If espn and other media's focused more on every team and not just the big markets it would improve the NBA and it might actually help the smaller market teams get some respect and give them a better chance at keeping their players or improve their chances to attract players to come play for them. The media makes it an unfair playing field.

This thread wasn't a shot at Lin, it was a shot at the media and how much of a joke it is and how easily they brainwash people.

I've already posted how it's not just 1 game...but I'll repost for those who can't find anything, or look at a stat line for a player....

He hasn't done it in consecutive games, but he has been more successful over a longer period than Lin. His sample size isn't bad. If you want to look at his season numbers and say 9-7 go ahead, but over the last month...12 and 10, and the last 2 weeks...17 and 11.7

In the recent stretch he has had games of...29 and 25, 14 and 10, 23 and 7, 17 and 16, 17 and 12, 9 and 12, 9 and 14, 7 and 19, 10 and 11, and a few other pretty good games too.

In his last 10 games previous to yesterday, he was shooting 39.5%.

Then the tread should have been created off of those games not just one outlier night against the Nets. I don't know why Lin was brought into this citing one ridiculous night for a role player.

Lol I love how the jealous fans of other teams now make a thread when one of their not-so-well-known players has a big game and compares them to Jeremy Lin.

If you want to look at one stat and throw away everything else he has done that's fine... by that reasoning....

It's time to stop all Lin talk, the guy has high turnovers

You were trying to say that he's been playing much better since his minutes increased with the injuries to Gooden and Bogut...And it's simply not true.

I said he's a role player and you told me I was wrong.

In his previous 10 games, Ilyasova averaged 39.5% shooting. You brought up the good games he had, and completely neglected to mention the bad and mediocre games he had.

Even with his explosion yesterday, he's averaging 42% from the field in his last 10 games which is still putrid for someone starting at the power forward.

He had a great game. He isn't a great player.

Hey Ersan!

ILY, sexy!

He's a nice young talent. Definitely flies under the radar because he plays for the Bucks.

No love for this guy?

29 pts 25 reb :speechless:

This is what I hate about the Jeremy Lin hype. Other players put up better numbers but get no recognition. :mad:

This is a joke, right? Is Ersan breaking records too that I didn't know about? Was this his first ever start and did he lead a team in the midst of a complete collapse to 7 straight wins an 8 of 9 while putting up those numbers in every game?

Lol this doesn't compare at all. Plus, everyone already knew Ersan was a solid player.

I reject the very premise of this thread. Jeremy Lin has single-handedly rose a team from the ashes and has put up consistent numbers and came out of nowhere. Keep drinking the hatorade bro.

I watch the guy play every night. He is a really nice role player who rebounds and has a nice jumper. Nothing close to Lin.

When he does that consistently and his team is winning consistently (at least 9 games and 8-1 record), then he'll get more love. But it doesn't help his cause that he's not playing in a media center like New York.

He had a great game. He isn't a great player.

Shooting percentage is apparently the only stat that determines how good a player is. Dirk career shooting percentage is 47%, which must make him horrible too, since that's only 5 percentage points above putrid for a power forward.

I won't sit here and say Ersan is going to the next big all star. But he can be more than just a role player in my opinion. Its not like he's just some 30 year old guy who's had one good game. His rebounding per 40 minutes is pretty good. He's 15th when you sort it on nba.com, and if you take out the guys who've played less than 16 games, he's up to 9th.

He's not an efficient scorer, but he's a very good rebounder, especially on the offensive glass. He plays solid defense, and takes charges well. He's only 25 years old, and although not efficient, he has a nice shot and has potential to play a poor man's Dirk type of role.

Well let's see he was actually drafted, he had one great game as opposed to a string of good games, and he's making about 5 times as much money as Lin.


1 game and you want him to get recognition?


Since when did 1 game = a run.

I love how everyone quickly dismisses this as "just one game" when he put up numbers that hasn't been done in 33 years:


Ilya-sanity Breaks Out In Jersey
From Elias: Ersan Ilyasova scored 29 points and grabbed 25 rebounds in the Bucks' 92-85 win at New Jersey. Ilyasova was the first player to record a 25-25 game in more than a year, since Kevin Love did it against the Knicks in November 2010, and he joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (10 times) and Swen Nater (1976) as the only Bucks players ever to do so. But it was the dispatch with which Ilyasova accomplished the feat that was truly remarkable; he played only 36 minutes. No NBA player had posted a 25-25 game in as little playing time as Ilyasova since Robert Parish, playing for the Warriors, did it against the Knicks in 1979.


______

I'm from Turkey;
i watched Ersan a lot and i know his game...if i'm not mistaken a lot of people were considering him a lottery pick, he had a great leaping ability with good height and long arms, but he broke his same ankle twice before entering the draft, and he slipped down in the draft.

But he is a really good player,i've been watching this league for 12 years, and i can say this, Ersan could easily be a 17/12 player if he plays 30+ minutes, at the same time he can give you 1,5/1,5 in steals and blocks categories with great defense and hustle.

i just don't know how players like Lin/Ersan are getting overlooked and can't get PT unless a lot of injuries hit their teams. If Ersan can begin to play a starter role on any NBA team, he would surprise a lot of people.

Exactly. He is a bona fide starter in this league. At least this game will secure him more minutes and what should be a permanent starting role.


Ersan is the perfect example of a player who can produce when he gets the minutes. There's a ton of NBA players who can put up numbers if they get 30+ minutes consistently. Before Bogut got hurt Drew Gooden was averaging like 5 ppg and then when he got the minutes he was putting up 17 and 8.


Oh?

Over the past 10 games (before last night) he was shooting 39.5% overall from the field. That sure is 'stepping up' when he gets more minutes.

Hilarious, you call it one good game but during this span you say he shot 39.5% he really only had one poor shooting game going 1 for 10. Take that out and he's shooting 43%. He can't have one bad game?


I've already posted how it's not just 1 game...but I'll repost for those who can't find anything, or look at a stat line for a player....

I don't think anyone read this. All they see is a player who put up one great game. No one realizes how he's come along this season.
