    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.
