Guard Jeremy Lin will miss 2 weeks with a right knee sprain suffered Wednesday. Will be re-evaluated then.

Also, I wanted to encourage everyone with strong data to support our guy and where he is headed.

Sorry, I know the table above is hard to read but if you go over it, there is not too much difference. The top has better FG%,3P%, STL, the bottom better AST, REB. Basically, if you're looking at it just by numbers, you wouldn't be able to say one is better than the other statistically speaking.
The bottom #'s are for the first pick in the 2010 draft, who has the ball in his hands all the time. He has the team built around him. Has played mostly in meaningless games where he can just put up numbers and not worry about trying to win. He has almost twice the amount of minutes.
The other is for an undrafted player. He has been yoyo'ed in and out of the starting lineup. Has for most of his career not had a defined roll and not used to his strengths. Is usually at best the 3rd option offensively.
Yes, these are career 36min stats for JLin and John Wall. I think this really shows everyone how the eye test and the way people are perceived by the media, can be very deceiving.
So when you hear people raving about John Wall, realize that JLin is right there too and he has just as much upside as even though Wall is younger, Jeremy has played way less minutes.
