I like Lin's ability to attack the basket but other than that, he really lacks how it is to be a great PG, from court vision, reading the defense, making an accurate entry pass etc. I can't believe Steve Nash who is getting paid like 9 mil this year would not offer to tutor him.

He was never a great starter. He's a guy who had a hot streak of games on a team that had absolutely nobody on it who could score in 'antoni's offense.

That streak was pretty incredible man. He played very well and got the Knicks into the playoffs. He was in a system that benefited him but to act as if that was the only reason is ridiculous. He has game, unfortunately he has not been able to adapt to systems that are not the best fit for him

To think he has that much game is just incorrect. It was a hot streak. Nothing more. I've said it from the beginning when it all happened. He's just mediocre. It was not Lin that got the Knicks to the playoffs.

I guess it's a good thing to know that Jim is going to have to step down in the future.

We've been discussing Nash + picks for Rondo apparently
