I woke up this morning and it felt like it was a dream. Did Lin really drop 38 points on a Friday night ESPN televised game against Kobe Bryant's Lakers?
I know it's been the media talking point, but it's very true: have you ever seen Kobe play second fiddle at MSG like this? There was a stretch in the 4th quarter where Lin and Kobe were trading buckets, and Kobe looked sincerely frustrated.
I worry about Lin's stamina...he plays on hyperdrive, all game. He's got to hit a physical wall at some point...right? Tonight's game will be interesting because it's his first back to back, and on the road as well.
what's funny about lin is my and my buddy would make huge lin jokes...he became an inside joke, then lin just BLEW UP and my friend picked him up on his fantasy team the week we are playing LOL
Lin doesn't strike me as capturing lightning for a temporary period.
if you watch the guy play he has great ball skills, great court vision, is extremely dangerous with both hands, and has great body control.
the only thing he isn't great at is 3's but he can develop that over time.
this guy is a serious keeper.
and Melo and Mare being out have been a blessing in disguise....it's allowed Lin to establish himself so when these 2 guys come back he's already a piece of the pie...when melo and mare are back and with Lin rolling this team has no limits.
This brings up a good point. Can Lin throw a football? His lincompletion rate would probably be lower than Sanchez. His pious leadership and infectious attitude can win over the perturbed bipolar Holmes and can turn Wayne Hunter linto Anthony Munoz.
If I'm Tannenbaum I'm doing some due dilingence on this right now.
