    I'm pretty tired of talking about the Portland series. Am hoping to talk more about Lin as an Atlanta Hawk as this thread is supposed to.

    Dude, if we had a strict rule where non-rockets fans can't join Clutchfans we'd wouldn't have but a few pages.

    Can you imagine if every player had a cult like following and invading Clutchfans?

    We'd have 100 pages on Lonzo Ball or Josh Hart

    The Blazers performance got Lin traded period. We all know this. We=Rockets fans. And it should never get to the point where insecure fan bases go on our site.

    Utah fans aren't spamming us, and we know that history . But Lin fans are.

    There should be ZERO player only fans here.

    Yup...Wall was the only player faster than Lin at the pre-draft combine when they were coming out of college.

    He's actually a better overall player in the NBA.

    And he actually starts.

    Yup. Wall was the number one pick overall in his draft year. If he wasn’t starting, he’d be considered a huge bust.

    They call the streak that Harden is on 'MVP'

    Yao Ming never got a streak named after him and he was 5 billion times better than Lin

    Speaking of John Wall, bummer to hear he will be out for a year...

    The Nets look so good without Lin.
    What a great trade!

    @Zboy
    Even Shabaz Napier looking good

    I remember this being plastered on espn(and everywhere else) when it happened.

    Casual nba fans remember this.

    Call me a skeptic, but I find it extremely hard to believe a Lin fan of your caliber missed this.

    A guy who joins a team fans site to constantly bump Lin threads and try to dilute real basketball opinions is binge watching Jeremy Lin media like it was a Breaking Bad marathon

    your assumption is correct

    I remembered the stat about his first 4 starts but forgot about the stat about his first 5 starts.

    I wish you would post more real basketball opinions rather than the rehashed stuff you always seem to go to.

    As I've said before, I don't think Lin is in a very good situation for himself...he's in Atlanta mostly to give Trae breathers and is often not in the games at crunch time. But I do think that Lloyd Pierce treats him fairly given the circumstances and it also seems like his teammates appreciate and play well with him, so it's good from that perspective. I wouldn't be surprised if the Hawks try to re-sign him to a more reasonable contract to keep him on the team for another couple of years.
