And if you want differences between last year and this year is last year his offense was much more efficient, he brought the ball up for the Knicks and always initiated the offense, and he had some guys (Novak, Shumpert, Chandler) who he made much more efficient by his presence.

He's less efficient this year, and having less effect on the game, and half the time he's waved off and someone else brings the ball up and starts the offense. It's what's making him take bad shots, he's winding up off the ball as a shooter. That's not ideal.

Note: I ACTUALLY WATCH HIM PLAY unlike some of you who reflexively just get pissy when he is criticized.

Have you seen the many, many anti-Melo threads? People call him fat, lazy, a poor team player and a bad character, etc.

Guess what - Melo's black.

I think you're much more racist than the people you're accusing.

There are more people on this board who will argue Lin is great based on 9 pts than admit Melo is an all star when he scores 30. Based on the numbers he's putting up and the impact he is having on games, a Knick fan who said he was very good last year and not as good this year is just being honest.
Find me a post where someone said he was a stellar all NBA defender? He's just been holding his own, and he is the 5th leader in steals per game, so he has decent hands and reaction.

Everybody here just needs to keep in perspective:

- He was not offered an athletic scholarship
- went undrafted
- averaged what, 5 minutes of play time in his rookie year with GSW
- sent to D-League multiple times his rookie year
- Cut by Rockets in preseason
- was on the NYK's bench for while and almost cut

now look at his numbers.

Dont bother trying to argue with niko/milwad/shepseskaf (the same guy) about Jeremy Lin.

They are clearly lin haters, and probably only hate on lin because they were raped by an asian pedo when they were young.

He's not a good defender. I kept getting told decent and then told he makes steals, etc. He's not decent. He's not a good defender. Don't tell me "yes but" and i won't argue it.

I think that's arguable whether he's a decent defender. He has some deficiencies with overhelping and getting picked off, but he is competent when it comes to man to man d. He's surprisingly also not bad at guarding mismatches.

Whats messing lin up this season is that he is tryin to live up to that fat contract!

I think it put a lot of pressure on him.jeremy lin if you out there listen to me.


Calm down,focus,remember the ancient chinese proverb "patience is a virtue",and last but not least eat some sushi befor every game.


If he does those things he will be fine.

There are tons of people critical about Lin's game. There was when he was a Knick. Don't act like this is something new Knick fans made up.

Very true

I remember when Mike James average 20.3ppg on 47% (44% from 3) shooting and 5.8 assists over 79 games on a crap team much like Lin and no one gave a shit. Jeremy Lin over 35 games on a crap team averages 14.6, 6assists on 44% shooting and the hype is beyond insane

Terrance Kinsey over 12 starts avg 18 and 4 assists for Memphis

Andre Miller career averages are what Lin average over his time in NYK no one gives a crap

Hell even Dan Dikau (who's white) avg 14 and 5 on a crap team no one gave a crap

There have been countless other players do what Lin has done and the media didn't give a crap.
