Knicks got lucky, but again, let's give it some time too. I hate to start another Lin debate, but I've yet to see a team play great defense on him (FORCE HIM LEFT!).
Not alone... I'd have brought him in because he showed something... at Harvard, against UCONN, and in summer league. The risk also would have been minimal compared to the great rewards (even if those only would have been in ticket sales).

Both Minny and LA gameplanned for Lin. The Jazz did too (in the 2nd half of that game). He just played well enough to spoil those plans.
