Another stupid move by McFail. I am not a LOF but Lin is clearly a better player.

I think it is a good time to experiment with JLin helping out the second unit. Best of luck to the team.

It's worth a shot I think, better then blindly put Lin as the starter for every game and not give Bev a chance.

No NBA coach deprives a NBA player of the starting job like this. If you want to try something new, you can reduce Lin's minutes. But this is clearly a vote of no confidence. I am afraid this would widen the rift between McFail and Lin.

I'm no LOF, but I don't agree with this call either. Even if it's pre-season.

ehh, get over it. let him experiment with it. better to learn now than in the season. besides, Asik will probably be doing the same, and hes on starter contract too!

McFail is just a Lin doubter. Raves about Bev all the time but never gives credit to Lin.

Dont get me wrong, I agree that Coach McHale appears to treat Jeremy a little differently, and rarely gives him credit, I also dont agree that he should start Bev. But for the sake of enjoying the game, I ain't even mad, just let him experiement and see how it goes.

well if they think playing lin with 2nd unit helps the team more, then what can we say. pretty sure the next game lin will start.

No coach would experiment like this. This move is simply a slap in the face to Jeremy.

We also dont know what coach's plan is.
He may sub lin early, using bev aggressivly before he fouls out lol

Fellow LOF's, I beg you. Just chill. If everything goes south THEN unleash. Until then, just support the team and hope for a win!

I feel really bad for Jeremy. I hope he gets traded. The way McFail handles Lin is so irritating. I have never been this mad at a coach before..
