Knicks @ Wolves, True Greatness?

Statistically speaking, Jeremy is on the verge of the All-Time greats in regards to 5 straight games of at least 20 + points, 6+ assists and 50% shooting. See article attached. Click here. However, the one unfavorable factor that is talked about of no one seeing this coming is completely hogwash. Kobe Bryant was right on the money when he said "Players don't usually come out of nowhere,""If you go back and take a look, his skill level was probably there but no one ever noticed." Actually, the reason no one noticed was that he wasn't given a chance. So, no matter what happens tonight, I'm on record saying the Jeremy Lin will be one of the All Time greats. Again, we'll hear all of the naysayers and doubters, but as I've been saying for over 2 years, the numbers don't lie.

Enjoy!

  1. Really looking forward to tonight's game. Glad to see all the love for Lin.

    If anyone's interested I found some pretty nice looking t-shirts at www.teamlinsanity.com. Seems to be a nice alternative to the tees at insanity.com.

  3. The yellah mamba will put up the usual - 20 or more pts / 7 or more asts / 50% or better fg - throw in several rebounds / a few great defensive plays / couple steals / maybe a block or so / and if feelin real good then throw in a thunder jam!

  4. After the 1st:
    9pts
    3 assists
    1 reb
    1 steal

    Unreal. Rubio is the real deal too.

  5. First Half stats
    15 pts 4 ast. Not bad but he looked sloppy out there. He needs to get his teammates more involved. We also need to double team Love and let Rubio take the outside jump shots.

  8. Lin looks tired tonight- he's not getting the ball up above the rim on his drives. we'll have to see if he's saving it for the 4th quarter

  12. Great, ugly win. Lin has an off-day shooting, but he comes through in the home stretch. Superb team effort. Shumpert, Fields, Novak.

    It's really important and impressive to win games even when you don't have your best. Lin and Knicks showed that tonight.

  13. So the announcer says Lin has an off night- looks fatigued, but he still gets 20 pts.

  14. The yellah mamba was tired but still came through with solid numbers except fg % -

  16. Really ugly game from Lin tonight. Too many turnovers again and not finishing at the rim (a couple of easy layups missed). Knicks stole this game from the Wolves. Played great defensively. Steve Novak really should be starting over Walker. Walker is absolute garbage. Lin probably would've had 10 assts+ if he played with Novak more. Lin definitely outplayed Rubio though.

  17. I find the Lin vs Wes Johnson stats most compelling.

    While Lin has an "off night" by scoring a career low 20 points as a starter (ha ha), Wes Johnson amasses a mighty stat line of 0-1-0.

    Wes Johnson was the #4 overall pick in 2010. That was the year Lin went undrafted. Minnesota could have had Lin AND Ricky Rubio starting in the backcourt together.

    Bad drafting destroys franchises.

  18. I'd take 20-8-6 and a win damn night... Rubio, LOL.... He was all over Lin too....

  19. I thought Kobe's comments were very telling. From someone who had instant notieriety to be able to comment on the other side of the spectrum—saying perserverance and hard work.

    Kobe is right. He did go unnoticed and i'll tell you why: he didn't fit the profile; he went to Harvard and he's asian. The commentators, just like some others, don't know how to make sense of it, because they never seen anything like it, or more importantly, they didn't want to see it (refer to Kobe's quote).
