    Default Linsanity

    We need to sign this guy quick! Firstly, he's gonna cost dirt cheap. Secondly, Lin is an extremely marketable player. Lastly, he's also exactly the type of player we're looking for: a high IQ, energy PG who can spell Calderon or Bayless from the bench.

    I was thinking the same thing when I was browsing through a list of cheap PGs on 1 year deals.

    Lin was picked up by the Rockets who now have Lowry, Dragic, Flynn, and Lin at PG.

    Definitely prepping for trades one or two of those outside of Lin.

    Sorry for the necro, but I had to get this out.

    Career high in points, minutes, and assists in his first real game with the Knicks. At MSG.

    We missed our chance with this guy

    I liked Lin in summer league and had hoped we would get him then and you can see above I was on board with the idea.

    He's having another great game for New York tonight. 13 points and 8 assists in 3rd Quarter.

    I can't for the life of me figure out how he's taking the most shots out of anyone on the team two nights in a row ... and they JUST picked him up. Those Knicks are a MESS. (I thought we were done saying that ...)

    Clearly a great pick up though.

    Hopefully he pulls a Wesley Matthews. i.e. go undrafted -> play well for a team -> earn big $$ in the offseason to start for a PG-desperate franchise (US!)

    You've probably seen the story in the star, but Lin isn't getting a place until NY guarantees his contract this weekend. :-)

    I suspect he will be getting a decent one year rental. Might wait to see who he signs with next summer before he buys a place in NY.

    Man if only we'd picked him up for cheap. Would've been better than Bayless!

    You could fill in the space in front of that comment with a universe of words.

    Life is harsh, judgemental fans are harsher. :-)

    Actually I like everything I see about Bayless, his demeanour, the way he speaks thoughtfully in interviews, how he supports his team mates, everything but the way he turns into "all on my shoulders, guys" when he is out there and the Raps fall behind. If he could get over thinking he has to take over to save the game, I would be a lot more appreciative.
