I dunno. But (again to go "off topic") to me the number one difference between now and the beginning of the season is Kidd doesn't have enough in the tank to be all leadershippy and take over in critical moments. He needs to play the stabilizer, not be leaned on throughout the game. The way Kidd is being used is an abomination.

Pacers routing the Pistons by 30+ again. If the Knicks lose tonight Indiana is officially the 2nd place team in the Eastern Conference. They play the Pistons tomorrow night too, so they would look to pad the lead should the Knicks lose to Toronto.

Lin shoots 4-11 as I predicted, got abused by Deron....and surprise surprise, his disciples are nowhere to be found. Dudes were in here with kneepads on a couple nights ago. They must be thinking of excuses.

You're an idiot. Lin guarded CJ Watson the entire night due to JJ being out and Deron was being guarded by Parsons and Harden. You didn't watch the game so please stop talking.

ps. do you ever leave your house?

You didn't watch the game then, cuz he conducted a symphony in the 1st half ~ and the rockets play team ball. Last time I checked winning games was the most important goal. Don't recall Lin saying it was team lin and a 1 man lin-team vs the league. #winning see Charlie Sheen for more info.



Have fun ~ :)

Dude, he was Magic Johnson in first half, passing between Brook's legs to Motiejunas, no look pass to Motiejunas, another no look to a trailing Motiejunas on fast break, and passing bullet pass (vid below) to you guess it... Motiejunas. Lin made Motiejunas like Tom Chambers lite. He was the reason why there's so much spacing, ball movement, player movement on that team.



Delfino was on fire, and no need for him to take ova.

Good thing Houston won. We still have the division.

Lin was pretty good in the first half, but he had some really stupid TOs in the 2nd and he couldn't hit a shot. Same with Parsons. Idk why McHale lets Parsons handle the ball so much. He tends to develop tunnel vision and then ends up getting stripped.

DMo impressed me tonight. Seems like Morey's been hiding him from other teams all along.

You've been quoted enough, but yeah..

Lin was getting his team involved throughout the game. I mean 5 players scored in double figures. Also sank a clutch pullup in the 4th. Not his best outing obviously, but he kept players moving.
