and on the otehr end? lin is taking advantage of him. drives, step backs, ball movement. nothing jose can do to stop it. and on teh game-winning play he's forced to give him half an acre of real estate to offset the blow-by potential, and lin just sticks it in his eye.

solid player, but not the right guy for our system, and he just can't stop dynamic point guards at all. he can put up good numbers - even great - over the course of a game, but when it comes down to an intense finish he just can't make it happen. i wish it was different, but it's not.

sell high.
If it wasn't for Jose we wouldn't be in this game.

Check out all those "fans" going nuts...

Log into facebook, and see just about every single asian friend I have, especially the girls, who have never watched a basketball game in their lives, going nuts for Lin. Example:

_______ Says:

"OMFG LINNNNNNNNNN, 6 in a row!"

Apparently she's a Knicks fan now.

hell yes i do. you can help children and poor people without prosthelytizing about fairy tales. making charity conditional on faith is paternalistic and offensive.

Man, I'm seeing all this #Linsanity on twitter...

I know Linas played well but that seems excessive...

If we need to trade Jose after this game then I guess the Nets need to trade Deron.... the wolves need to trade Rubio.. the Lakers need to trade Kobe (since he couldn't stop Lin either).

Seriously... between this and the Durant @ C thing last night I don't know what's gotten into you.
truth hurts breh.

Need a lullaby? It's bed time. BTW I also think he is over-hyped and I also think he gets an undeserved support and I also think that these "fans" (fanatics of their own nation since the only reason they were there was to support their nation, which to me is ultra-nationalistic) are no fans of basketball.

But wishing harm on someone because of this is wrong and I bet you know it too, but you were just waaay too angry. Happens to all of us time to time. Just admit (to yourself, not to me or others) that you were overboard; believe me you will feel better.
