    Because he sucks

    He would definitely make the list for "Players that suck in the NBA"

    Let's do a Top 100 reason:

    #1 - He sucks
    #2 - He makes dumb play. How did this guy get into an Ivy League school?
    #3- He sucks
    #4- See #2. Why does this guy keep jumping up in the air and then decide to pass...to the wrong guy.
    #5- See #1, 2, and 4.

    It will mean no one wanted him and he kept rotting away on the Nets.

    Chinese people aren't stupid either
    They know the difference between the Yao Mings vs the Lins and Yi Jan Lians

    They believe somehow Lin = them.
    So if someone says Lin sucks, they would say "No Lin doesn't suck".
    If 100 people say Lin sucks, they would say "No Lin doesn't suck" to 100 people.
    Their self esteem is directly tied to Lin.

    When we had the Yao Only Fans, it was just national pride because we got a lot of foreign posters who related Yao to National pride.
    You can see that logic though.

    The LOF are more like a disease than a fan base. It's very zombie like.

    Believe it or not, as bad as Airemy Lin is, there is actually some limited use for him in the NBA.

    He is good to have in practices where other players can boost their confidence playing against him.

    Beverley was practically a nobody until he started to regularly destroy Airemy Lin in practices. So much so that McHale was forced to take away Lin's starting spot and give it to Beverley.

    Same with Jordan Clarkson, a rookie. Once he started to destroy Airemy Lin in practices, Scott had to demote Airemy and give his spot to Clarkson.

    These players built their confidence up by playing against and destroying Airemy Lin in practice everyday.

    In their heads, once they started to destroy Airemy in practice, they thought, "Wow! If this scrub can be in the NBA, I can be a star", and their game improved significantly.

    The trick is not to depend on Airemy in actual games. That's where you pay the price.

    Let's talk about when will Lin lose his starting job this season?

    Before the start of the season?

    Before the All star game?

    20 games into the season?

    By the end of the season?

    I will say before the all star game if they are under .500 and in last place.

    Lin is a great player, he is constantly brought down by the racist media. He would be Lebron if the league wasn't racist against him
