Chandler Parsons was the exception last year.


He'll get more and more freedom as the year goes on.






Just go to rotoworld or even better basketball-reference. On the first page you'll see the teams in the league and their records. You'll also see a $. Click on it. That's the team salaries page. You see options, you see money that's still on the books (I saw Karl Malone being owed money by the Lakers this year).

cool thanks!

he just needs time and experience to build up his confidence, the rockets games I caught he looked a bit timid and hesitant whereas during linsanity he was playing with maximum swagger. linsanity is out of reach but he will obviously improve from his current play

Look like Rondo type numbers. Just today he got 12 points, 10 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 6 turnovers in 38minutes and lost to the damn Pistons.

Lin top 5 PG?

Too bad for Rocket fans that Lin doesn't average 13.3 points on great 52% shooting like Rondo and that Lin doesn't average 13.2 assists per game this season.

Lin is a disaster this far, I hope he'll step up soon because his shooting has been so freaking bad. There's no way Houston can live with a point guard who only makes 35% of his FGA and who who shoots many 3's but only make 26% of his 3 point attempts..

Can you imagine what the Rockets would look like without the Harden acquisition? Probably historically bad.

Chandler Parsons is a player, though.

Rondo is eons better both defensively and offensively. Honestly the numbers (as awful as they are)don't tell the whole story. He constantly makes boneheaded plays that don't show up on the stat sheet.

+ 1 Machado for Iona RIPPED UP, the dude has insane in terrific passing skills and is a good playmaker and every bit as good athlete as Lin, he can create his own shot althought i don't think hes a high % type shooter, give the kid a go he can't be worse than Lin and Douglas and also brings something to the game nethier have.

Lin sucks period. Throwing balls outta bounds, can't shoot to save his life. Can't even drive any more. Bonafide scrub

Lol, hope ur not srs about that list, otherwise it's a pretty crappy ranking, it's like you're trying to rank some by reputation and others by the past few games. Also, you forgot Mario Chalmers.

Who would you rank behind Lin?
I've seen your posts on clutchfans, LOF:er..

Lin is one of the worst starting point guards in the league, period.
