    Guys, guys, stop fighting, we all want the Rockets to win, right? Let's not let Lin turn into T-Mac and divide the CF, save it for Laker fans. :)

    if hes playing well, yes! If not, sit em! Simple right??? take the LOH hate and LOF love out and do whats right for our team. If Beverly is playing better, ride the hot hand... It takes adjustments to win, lets take all of these feelings out, they stir unethical arguments.

    this is the rebuilding year, we're already ahead of schedule. why don't we use this year to grow our starters and backups? let them make mistakes and learn, let starters see starter minutes and backups see theirs.

    and let's wait and see whom our GM will bring to our team this offseason, and let the coaches install a system for our team this offseason.

    oh, I forgot OP's question :)

    sure, of course, lin is our starter and he needs to (learn to) close the games.

    I agree that Lin should play the first 5 minutes so that Les can meet his end of the contract on all those in game ads with Asian advertisers. Then they need to bench him the rest of the game.

    It's unlikely that Lin will be traded, so you're forced to stick with him either way.
    He's shown that he can play at a high level once in a while, why not use that time to develop him as a PG by letting him during crunch time? If he pans out later, great. If he doesn't, we can at least shop him around as a backup PG.

    Beverley still hasn't shown that he's starter material, Brooks is unknown at this point. It's not like we have other options.

    This loss was a total team break down. No flow everyone just watching each other....You can probably put in Beverley and we still probably came out a loser. What a shame this should've been an eeeasy win.

    Sad but true. Lin can't be traded as long as Les still has those in-game ad contracts from Maxxis.
