He hasn't even played a playoff game yet. I wouldn't jump the gun in the regular season when he only just started getting major minutes.

Heat vs. Knicks tonight... televised!

Hmmm... Lebron's already said that he'll prob. spend some time guarding Lin... hope the kid is ready lol.

The Knicks will have to be red-hot from the outside (Melo, J.R., Novak) for them to stand a chance and they'll have to keep the TOs down. I don't like their chances but it would be a great story if they could pull it off.

You do realize Lebron guarded Rose for significant stretches during the Easteron Conference finals last year, right? Lebron's extra length gave him some problems, at times.

I think Lin might rise to the challenge, but Lebron is not an idiot for suggesting he could guard a PG.

Let me take this opportunity to steal some of Lin's thunder and say that Chris Bosh is playing the best basketball of his career. Doesn't matter his stat line, he is doing all the little things this season, and he has the second highest clutch shooting percentage in the NBA next to Hedo Turkoglu.

Bosh is proving this season that his name belongs with the best when talking about the best big men in the NBA.

Rose average 25 a game against Miami in the playoffs no?

Im not saying he can't guard him now and again to throw him off rhythm, I'm saying lebron cant guard him....as in, he couldnt guard him for a game.

Preach on mah boy.

I've heard some Knicks fans talking about how "Bosh v. Amare will be a wash". : |

It's pretty sad to see how blind some people are to the guy's talent.

I think he could buddy... pretty easily. Bron is a damned freak of nature that runs like a gazelle and jumps to the moon. Lin is smart but there's no way in hell that he goes anywhere if he's in an iso against "Da King". It'd be like Pippen against Mark Jackson back in the day.

Okay sorry Panda, I should have been clearer.

And to the other guy, of course I was referring to Lin. This is a Lin thread afterall.

Rose shot 42/120 in that series. That's 35%

Rose took 24 shots to get 23+ ppg.

Lebron's defense did exactly what Miami wanted.

Fine. That's your opinion. But based on what he did against D-Rose, I don't think it's fair to call Lebron an "idiot" for saying he could guard Lin.

Anyway, I hope it's a good game.

Miami don't need Lebron guarding Lin. Chalmers will start and if Lin finds ways to be effective they will switch to Wade. Lebron's focus should be on Melo. I predict 6 assist and 8 turn-overs for Lin tonight.

Take away the one game where he shot pretty well, and he was right at .300. Pretty dismal.

It won't just be Lebron. If they need to, they'll throw all kinds of looks at Lin, and it'll be team defense making mincemeat of the Knicks pick and roll, if Miami doesn't win with offense alone, which they've been more than capable of his year. If there's any problems it's quite likely that Lebron gets the assignment at the point of attack down the stretch. It probably won't come to that though.
