Re: The Official "Discuss Jeremy Lin's Performance" Thread
Jeremy Lin would make a good back-up PG in this league. He's not got the cojones for being "the man" or even a regular starter. He'll have good games as the starter but he'll have passive games like last night.
12 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 6.4 APG, 2.4 SPG in 35 MPG - Decent stat line. Great FT shooter, horrible FG %. Not a great 3 point shooter. I'm actually impressed that he's able to average that many assist given how much Harden dominates the ball. And to that point (in relation to my point about Lin being a back-up), I'd like to see them actually bring Lin off the bench and start Douglas or Cook. Douglas is basically a defensive specialist at this point (meaning that's what gets him on the court, not that he's a lock-down defender). Cook would really play limited minutes but could give the team some scoring punch early. 2nd unit would be Delfino, Morris, Lin, Smith/Aldrich, Jones.
