There are several minute stretches with Lin on the court where Harden barely touches the ball and doesn't take a shot. You're just making stuff up. And also, apparently paranoid.

I think he's returned his glass slipper and back to Golden State Jeremy Lin.

Fisher>Lin
in his prime. He might not have been a great player compared to lin, but those intangibles!!!
I am forever in his debt! :bowdown: :bowdown:
People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true?" Merely vague concepts...

Look in the mirror to get some resolution on the stupidity issue.

Obviously, when a player's minutes go from 10 minutes to 35, there will be more production. However, the shooting % tells the story -- .389 GSW, .353 HOU.

So, actually it pretty much is the same.

For starters was he a spot up shooter in the Mecca? No right? If you WATCHED his games he's being used as such. He's struggling right now but TOP 5 among PGs in almost evry other department. Look it up so you dont look like a box score Hubie Brown.

Not really. He isn't in the top 5 in minutes played, points, 3pt %, FT %, or assists per game among point guards.

He is in steals and blocks, and his turnovers are down so I guess it isn't a total loss.

Still not worth $8 million a year.

He ' isnt top 5 in minutes played' is the key son. His usage rate is among the lowest. How do you expect Linsanity type numbers if youre just another player?

Oh, I get it now. If Lin were only used more, his shooting % would jump up to maybe.... 38%?

Maybe. You tell me. You have a knack at making 'educated' guesses with box scores anyways.

I wonder what Rondo or earlier career Kidd's shooting % would look like if they are asked to exclusively spot up for 3s.

It would really make you look smarter if you didn't mention Lin in a direct comparison with either Rondo or Kidd.

Do you know what direct comparison means?
