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:

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?

You must be high.

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.
