The thread is for player analysis, news and game reactions and items not normally related to the Knicks.

Please show a little respect and keep it strictly on the post and not the posters themselves.

Thank you and good night.

I think a lot of people said this before they got harden, and they were right. Replace harden with K martin and I believe they're 9th seed. Be realistic, having your point guard turn the ball over 7 times is disaster in the playoffs. Not to mention his inconsistency.

With that said, as i stated, the offense run smooth, the defense is suspect ... do you disagree?

:roll: :roll:

Guess you a "hater" and out in "full force" if mention anything negative about lin on a Knicks site... smh.


I just point out when people are stretching to bash a player. And the hate is unwarranted, especially when we are talking about a good character guy who played his heart out for the Knicks.

The offense runs smooth largely due to Lin. When he's not on the court, things get ugly fast. The defense is not suspect- it is average, which you would expect with this style of play.

Lin has fewer turnovers this season than Rondo, Westbrook, Knight, Curry, Holiday, Vasquez, and Lillard this season but you never hear anyone talk about their turnovers. And he is also among the league leaders in steals. With the Rockets style of play, you are going to have turnovers- Harden has more than Lin. Lin more than makes up for turnovers with his steals and rebounds.

Harden. That is the difference. Not lin, not asik, not parsons but Harden.

He is the reason they are in this position. I WISH they had never made that trade so you and your like would have disappeared.

Was D'Antoni looking at the Rockets' offense with a face of envy? Save for the heavy use of pick and rolls the Rockets play like how D'Antoni wants the Lakers to play.

Yup, but everything's contained in this thread so I don't mind. Though it's a pain to sift through the posts to find comments about the other teams. :lol:

Why does every Lin post turns into a Lin v Felton debate? We could've had both for $7 mil. Lin at $5 mil would've been one of the biggest bargains in the NBA this year; when the poison pill comes up he becomes an expiring contract. Lin's playing every bit as well as he did during Linsanity; the only reason his stats are worse is that Harden brings the ball up half the time so he doesn't get as many assists. And he's 23 and still has barely played one season worth of games. Dolan just gave that away for free, like he was selling a lottery pick. It's still infuriating. There is absolutely no reason why Lin shouldn't be helping this team win right now and in the long-term future.

it was a big game cause everybody likes to see the Fakers lose. This game pretty much ends their playoff contention. They have to win like 66% of their games from this point on

Oh my. You are something else.

Anyway, The rockets play at the fastest pace in the NBA. turnovers aren't a problem. A lot of there turnovers is because of them trying to push the pace.

You are very right. But when he has a great game you all come out with your nonsense. Both parties embarrass themselves. For someone that doesn't want to hear about Lin anymore you are ALWAYS involved in the conversation.

Average on defense? They give up 100pts per game, and currently ranked 29th. Only ahead of the bobcats.

Also, I advise you to look at other boards. I post on the Pistons site as well, and posters always complain about B. Knight, but the difference is ... no one is calling him an allstar or a top pg in the league. As far as Westbrook, Rondo and Curry .. no one really complains about their turnovers because of theirs assists, points. consistency, and defense.

As for Lillard, dude is a rookie .. come on. And Holiday has improved every single year he's been in the league.

Not saying Lin is a bad point guard, but he needs to be more consistent and cut down on the 6/7 game turnovers. There is area for improvement. Just don't think he's the allstar you make him out to be, especially when you have point guards in the league like Chris Paul, Toney Parker, Kyle Irving, Rondo, and Westbrook.

Houston rides on Lin more than you think. Not a coincidence that they were down double digits in the first half and Lin was playing like crap. When Lin started playing better, they won the second half. Their recent 15 game run has also come on the improved play of Lin. Its not all Harden, look at the rockets record with Harden and with Lin playing like crap versus the last 15 games where he has stopped sucking.

Nobody calls Lin an all star. Lins defense is solid and has been so for the entire season. Lin is also a rookie in terms of experience hasn't even started a full nba season. If Jrue has improved every year why can't lin do the same get real. And how many PG's who have less than a season as a full time starter under there belt are all stars? And how many PG's who have less than a season as a full time starter under there belt are consistent. He is young he is supposed to be inconsistent. A lot of what you said makes no sense.

Points given up is not the best way to determine defense. The Rockets play at a faster pace than anybody in the NBA. As a result, opponents end up with a lot more fg attempts. FG% is a much better way to determine how good a team is defensively.
