Lin is a GUARD. And he's a guard who's STARTING and EXCELLING at the spot.

If he was a 7'0" PF I'm sure that people wouldn't care as much.... because they've seen it before (although it's still pretty rare).

I don't ever recall Yuta Tabuse starting for any team and dropping 20+ pts in back-to-back regular season games. If that had happened, maybe Lin wouldn't be such a story right now.
