    His debut vs the thunder in the playoffs was a disaster
    And obviously Portland was the last straw

    Morey saw that. Don't need to be a statistical genius to see Lin needing to go

    Yup. Airemy sealed his fate on the team after that disastrous showing against Thunder and that deer in the headlight look.

    He was on trading block since.

    Him with those bonehead plays in the Blazers series was the one that shattered the camel's back.

    It was such a relief amongst Rocket fans when this scrub was finally dumped. We were all glad to get rid of a liability on the basketball court.

    I'm still a bit confused as to why an LOF would keep posting on these forums, tbh. Bitterness can lead to long term health problems as has been proven in the medical community. It's a form of serious depression and people who have it should seek medical help for it.

    McHale was fired for having opinions like this. I like Mike D'Antoni. He gets guys to be their best, he even made Jerry a legend. MDmA should get credit for Linsanity, not Jerry.

    Anyone have an opinion on why Jerry was left off the TOP 100 list? Maybe we could make a nice list.

    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.

    Rafer Alston was so much better than Lin.
