@syntheticzero I agree with most of what you said - Lin elevates the whole team, and his high-scoring nights came in the context of team victories. Not meaningless superstar scoring that detracts from the team's efforts. Yes, this was very hard to see. Maybe he needs good, highly professional players to benefit from what he can do. And a system that gives the point guard the freedom to create in a way only a point guard can. The last Knick who really did this was Walt Frazier. His teammate, Earl Monroe, was a great shooter, but was not a point guard. People worried if they could coexist. The answer was another Knicks championship

On another note, I am new to this blog. I have to say, I'm very impressed by the serious and (mostly) intelligent nature of the comments I've read.

@gman711 I think you're really off in your interpretation of both Jeremy Lin and this article. Jeremy Lin is NOT giving the finger to anyone - he is positively asserting himself, to the utter joy and delight of white, black, Asian, and many other Americans and people worldwide. The fact that he is so considerate and unassuming while dominating on the court is part of the Linsanity sweeping America these days. full disclosure: I'm married to an Asian American, but I knew about Lin before she did.
