    Highly doubtful. Lin has been horrible this season overall as well, so Rockets would have been unhappy with him. At least Pbev is a superior shooter and IMO still a better defender.

    Thx. Fwiw, I did enjoy watching Zo, Grandmama and Mugsy back in the day...but that team technically is now the Pelicans, so not sure how to resolve that. Right now I will root for them and follow the team...

    Has he been horrible this season? Most of the stuff I see coming out of Charlotte from fans and media has been how well "The Jeremy's" (Lin and Lamb) have been playing together and contributing to the winning. Lin has been one of the team's best defenders (extremely important since MKG got injured), and his versatility has really helped the team overall...he's played a lot more SG than PG this season, so his assist numbers are down, but there's no question he's been one of the reasons the team has been successful.

    Perhaps my definition of "horrible" is different from yours. Ty Lawson has been "horrible" this season. Kobe Bryant has been more than "horrible" this season. Jeremy Lin has been a good (not great) 2nd unit player for the Hornets.

    I have just one question for you, have you seen him play this season? Granted, he is doing better the past few games, but he hasn't shot as bad as he has this season since his rookie year. His AST/TO ratio is still atrocious as well.

    From what I've seen when I do catch streams of the Hornets game, he is still basically the same damn player that he has been in Houston; reckless and stupid. He will have his moments, but he usually ruins it with some of the dumbest decision you would ever see a basketball player make.

    Yes, I've watched most of his games this season. His shooting is down, but his defense is way up. His turnovers are way down compared to when he was with the Rockets (1.6/g vs. 2.7/g with the Rockets), tho acknowledging that this is in part because he isn't playing PG as much...resulting in his assist totals being down as well. But his Ast/TO ratio is still around the same.

    His defense is WAY up, and its pretty clear to most Hornets fans that the ball moves much better when he is on the court...and the games Lin has had the highest minutes are mostly wins.

    I am guessing this is a joke reply. If not, I could care less what ethnicity either player is.

    If you could care less, does that mean you care a lot about his ethnicity?

    I love that the meaning of "Beverley" is "Beaver Clearing"...

    Jeremy's hairstyle looks like this guy's now:

    It must be working somehow though, he keeps playing well and the Hornets keep winning.
