    What will the LOFs do if Lin to demoted to the bench this season? The Nets and Coaching Staff will be label as prejudice and DLo not deserving and not as good as Lin...lol

    In before Jeremy Lin fails to be top 5 in MVP voting and LOFs blame racist media.

    How has he looked playing behind D-Loading?

    Dunno...he's been starting along side DLo, so no real look at him playing behind DLo.

    Overall, Nets have looked pretty good. Given, they've played the Knicks twice, so maybe not a great indicator...but they've won decisively in all three games (Knicks 2x, Miami), and Lin is leading the team in assists while being tied for 3rd in ppg.

    Is Lin playing more like a pass-first PG or is he trying to create for himself first?

    Its been a pretty good balance...ball movement on the team has been getting better with each game. In Sunday's game vs. Knicks, they had 29 assists on 42 FGM, so the team has been pretty unselfish overall.

    Lin's shot form arguably looks worse, but it gets out of his hands a lot quicker and he doesn't have the long wind up he used to have. That's gonna help him a lot.

    It's just my subjective opinion from an aesthetics standpoint. I liked his old jumper.

    There was a bit written about him working with the Hornets' coaches on his shooting form when he was in Charlotte...so that's when it changed.

    He says Linsane like it's a good thing. That's right out of the LOF handbook.

    Wow. Good luck with that. BTW, Do you forgive Lin for not having heart?
