    If we wanted a spot up shooting guard, we could've just traded Kyle Lowry for Jose Calderon.

    Hey, lets put even more pressure on Harden than he already has by having him ISO every time down the court - guaranteed way to lose the ball and not score any points on offense!

    JEREMY LIN 11 assists tonight, just let the man initiate and run the offense, why do coaches insist on Harden having the ball in his hands? He's a great player, but he's not Jordan. Everytime I see the Harden ISO in the 4th quarter, I know we're gonna lose.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    Quote agree! Harden should not run the ball in the last minutes.

    If Lin was not injured, there was absolutely no reason for Lin not to be out there in OT.

    Ok if you go back and review the game, the few times Lin got a pick, he got to the bucket at will and got a charge, and a missed shot. Thats probably all Sampson remembers, instead of all the good things that came around with it.

    Also in overtime, we should have been running morris harden pick and roll if lin was out and not patterson harden.

    Why doesn't Lin play 200% of the time?!?! Lin Should coach the team and run point guard, stupid Rockets holding Lin back from reaching full potentiallllllllllllll.

    Lin needs to show he can lead this team at point guard by just doing what Lin does... Just like the Harden in his first two games. Lin has to play his game then coaches will adjust the team according around him. Lin simply is not producing consistently enough yet

    Agreed and to think some CF members think TD was a better option befuddles me.

    Can't believe I'm saying but bring back McHale!

    Remember how Toney Douglas didn't even play a single minute in McHale's last game before his leave of absence ? Sampson has lost his ****ing mind here.

    Lin wasn't as aggressive as his stats may seem. Harden was on the bench and he would give up the rock to Douglas for some reason. I say just go out there and go crazy; what he so scared of. Shoot all the airballs you wont just shoot that s**t.

    Total BS.

    Sampson is either (A) a moron... or (B) a racist

    Only two options at this point... he just threw away a fking game to stick it to Lin... fk him... Sampson needs to be gone YESTERDAY

    P.S. I'm not especially a Lin fan, not Asian, never followed the Knicks... just calling it the way it is

    harden is the max contract superstar morey wanted so they should accommodate to him and lin should learn how to play with another superstar :confused:

    lin is not the star of this team, it's harden

    11/11/6 today with the best +/- on the team today. What are you smoking?

    I like how you mention the 2 games Harden did well when we are at game 9 already. 2/9 is consistency amirite?

    Sampson: Jeremy. Jeremy. HEY JEREMY I'M TALKING TO YOU. CHING CHONG CHING
    Lin: Dude, what's up?
    Sampson: I'm benching you for the OT.
    Lin: What?
    Sampson: Oh, I forgot you don't speaking American. CHING CHONG CH--
    Lin: No, I mean, why are you benching me?
    Sampson: You have too many assists. You're playing like a PG. We can't have that.
    Lin: Dude, are you serious?
    Samspon: Hey, those are my rules. Take them or leave them.
    Lin: I camp out at the 3 all the time. Today I tried to do something different and I had one of my best games. I even made that great pass to Harden to save us back in regulation. Remember?
    Sampson: Yo, TD. It's your time to shine.
    Lin: I'm calling Morey. This is ridiculous. Hey, Daryl?
    Morey: Hello? I'd like a large chow-mein with the General Chicken. I'll pay it with Royce White's fines.

    That was a really good game tell the end...I don't mind the team losing if they played hard, but if Lin isn't injured...speechless.
