    So you are acknowledging that Lin is a decent player in the NBA?

    No question that Fisher and Beverley are better defensive players. I've agreed with that from the beginning. They are both better 3pt shooters. They are 3-and-D guys who fit well playing along side All-Star SG's...they fit better in that role than Lin, nobody is disagreeing with that. But if you followed this entire conversation, my point is that those guys have not/did not reach their potential as a POINT GUARD (not just 3-and-D, but playmaker, scorer, etc) because of the situations they were in...and had they been in situations during their developmental years (eg. age 22-27-ish) where they had the opportunity to build their game thru experience, they would have become much better point guards than they ultimately have become. And Lin has had a similar experience...playing next to Harden and Kobe limited his opportunity to develop as a point guard...and sure, it was harder for him than for Fisher or Bev because Lin is not a 3-and-D guy, so playing the 3-and-D role was not a good fit (although his 3 and his D have both improved more than they would have had his situation been different).

    Do you disagree that if Beverley or Fisher were able to play PG for teams where they handled the ball more and were in playmaking situations for more of their time early in their career that they would have become better PG's than they ultimately have? Imagine if Beverley were playing for MDA for the last 5 years on a team that didn't have a ball-dominant SG...you don't think all that experience would have made him a better PG than he is today?

    What about his performance over the last two seasons makes you think that?

    Agree. Saying that "he sucks" is just plain wrong.

    Airemy Lin sucks.

    Got demoted by Rockets for an unknown PG.

    Got demoted by Lakers for a rookie.

    Downgraded to Hornets.

    Further downgraded to the Nets.

    Nets bring in a new PG just a year after getting Airemy.

    Airemy Lin keeps sucking.

    At least he is consistent lulz...

    At least he is always nice to his teammates....I read he is getting new suits for each and every player on the team for the first game of the Nets Season.

    I remembered he brought Gold Beats Headphones as christmas gifts to all his teammates when as was with the lakers or honets.

    What a nice dude and giving person is Mr. Lin.

    Airemy the scrub was trying to buy love and admiration of his teammates with gifts because on the court he was a disaster.

    "Black Mamba" still called him a pussy and chewed his head off, and Lakers still dumped his ass.

    The scrub is now buying gifts for his teammates on the Nets!

    You know you are done when you have to buy love on the worst team of the league!!!

    lol sad...

    Pat Beverley, Isaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic....players that LOFs have said Airemy is better than...

    All in NBA Top 50 players list.

    Airemy Lin? Not even in Top 100!!

    LOL!

    Airemy Lin, what a scrub!

    Even the new PG that Nets acquired from Lakers, A'Angelo, made the Top 100 list.
