I have to disagree with you. He won the defensive player of the year award in high school. At the college level, he averaged 2.4 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. In summer league, he shown good talent offensively and defensively.

If you check the scouting Lin is most likely to be on an NBA roster as a third string PG fighting for minutes so no one is over rating him by inquiring if he could come here and become that 3rd tier PG that has potential to become even better (as all rookies do)

Plus he has some real nice moves and a high Basketball IQ

Just saw that clip. He is actually a really good player. I don't know if we need him but for young talent I think it would be good if we picked him up

i saw that game too. i was like damn! didn't expect that kid to play THAT well. cant blame it on competition either because John wall was guarding him.. unless your going to call wall a scrub also then you gotta admit Lin is good.
He's got a lot of confidence, quickness, and pretty good court vision

Why would we pay banks 5 million a season to sit on the bench and never play? His contract is ridiculous and you can expect him to be dealt.

He won't sit as much if Jack is our starter. And if BC wants flexibily he allow him to expire next summer. Evans goes Banks probably stays.

This kid is nice. Solid defender and some nice moves. He has a quick first step. Also can shoot the ball. I'd bring him in, even just to develop now. I think you give him a season or 2 developing with the young gunz he could be a solid back up or potentially starting PG pshing the ball.

Just cuz a kid aint hyped like mad doesnt mean he can't play.

To be honest, NONE of these guys has proven a thing yet so liking lin holds as much water as liking John wall IMO

Omg no! its SL nobody in SL is actually any good!! There all scrubs playing agains scrubs!!!

Ok now that I'm done mocking all the fools that keep saying that over and over. I think hes great, I watched the game vs the wizards cuz I wanted my chance to watch wall, and he did amazingly well considering. I think he'd deff be worth a shot if we got rid of all these other damn PGs lol, we have plenty thats the problem.

I know one thing.... if we picked up this kid and he produced it would sell a HELL of a lot of tickets. Huge asian community here. Would be a feel good story. I'd give him an invite for sure to see what he can do in camp.

With his IQ, he'll probably invent a whole defensive scheme that we'll use for the next 5 years.

hahaha you guys.

SJ is right he just wrecked John Wall, not that I think John was trying his hardest.

The crowd, announcers were even impressed.

with solid promoting... yes... Lin could get the Asian community more into the mix of things especially if he does lots of work within the Asian community.


Anyways I like Toronto's youth movement, this would for sure be something I would support yet it is unlikely to happen.

Precisely. It would give more visibility to the team and brand.

That said, if he was from China or Taiwan (instead of USA), he would score more points with BC.

Exactly. And he'd be getting in for garbage time until he proved he could crack the lineup. Even with 5 min/gm.... do I think that the asian community would pay for that?

Damn right I do.
