Re: The Official "Discuss Jeremy Lin's Performance" Thread
The hype and contract is why people hate him. But don't forget this guy was undrafted and close to being cut.
Put it this way, if he was a 2nd round draft pick in his rookie season playing the way he is playing now, would he be hated or seen as a steal?
You can't blame him for getting paid. No one here would have done anything differently. Just seems that people want to see him fail and I just can't get behind that, especially when he seems like a decent person on and off the court.
That being said, if it weren't for that near airball at the end, I would have said the Heat game would be good for him as he played MUCH better than the first time around. I hope he shakes off that horrible ending soon and focuses on the positives.
