    Does not want to shoot even when he has a open look.

    In his last game as a Houston Rocket (Playoffs Game 6 vs. Portland), Jeremy Lin left the court with a 2 point lead and 0.6 seconds left on the clock.

    He has to step on the line first, remember?

    Jeremy lin left the rockets and the rockets made it to the western conference finals with pablo and jason terry as our point guards.

    Jeremy left the rockets, so lof need to leave clutchfans and the planet earth

    Agree with the first point; James Harden is a cornerstone of the Rockets, and no quality PGs would be successful; Pablo and JT experiencing career lows in almost every statistical measure playing with the Rockets. Thank goodness Jeremy Lin was able to get out (he did suffer in LA, but not as bad as Pablo is suffering in LA).

    And the only reason why I'm on Clutchfans is because there is a thread titled "[2015-2016] Jeremy Lin as a Charlotte Hornet"...thought it looked like an invitation to be here...

    Lin is indeed helping the Hornets in their winning ways. He is the cornerstone of what is known as "Bench Force One"...one of the top benches in the league. For perspective...Walker's plus/minus is +.5, Lin's is +4.7.

    Attempting to suggest bench player lin is better than a starter is a trait known by the species of insects called lin fans.

    Their capacity of true knowledge is minimal, they have no limit for jealousy

    Tinman's responses are so very incredibly not worth responding to.

    Lin is a better PG than Beverley, Ronnie Price, and (rookie) Jordan Clarkson. To suggest otherwise puts your capacity for true knowledge in serious doubt.

    In Charlotte, Lin is finally backing up a legitimate starting PG in Kemba Walker. So having him be a back up there is reasonable.

    Just because lin is doing well in this point in time doesn't make the decision to get rid of him by both teams to be an incorrect one.

    If you failed a test in 3rd grade and now can past the test, doesn't change that at that point in time you were a dumb kid.

    Charlotte's good play masked lin's weaknesses.

    Just like when he was with rockets. Until the playoffs come, when the intensity is much higher.

    One thing has not changed. Lin fans are insects in any point in time.

    Kemba walker is the starter.

    Never said the decisions to trade nor not re-sign Lin were incorrect by their respective teams. Houston was clearly committed to Harden, so their PG needs were different from what Lin brought to the team, especially at $15M for the last year of his contract. And in LA, it was similar except for the obvious clashes with Byron Scott.

    Lin/Lamb are the top bench guard combo in the league right now. How is Charlotte masking Lin's weaknesses? Also, Lin's biggest contribution to Charlotte this season has been his defense...which was supposedly his biggest weakness in Houston and LA. Maybe it was Houston and LA that were masking Lin's weaknesses?

    Insects will inherit the Earth, so you should be nice to them.

    And yes, Kemba Walker is the starter. He is the first PG that Lin has played with since Linsanity that is a starter-worthy PG. He is better than Beverley, Ronnie Price, and Jordan Clarkson. Lin has embraced his role as the backup PG in Charlotte (and actually plays more SG than PG).

    what part of him is doing well? lowest FG percentage in 3 years, lowest 3 pt percentage in 3 years, lowest ppg in 3 years, and lowest APG in 3 years.

    Like a true LOF, your capacity to understand the dynamics of team basketball is in serious doubt.

    Lin is at a good place now. The expectations are not like here is Houston and the affects of his time in the Knicks with Linsanity has now die down. The focus is to play his best with his role on the Hornets.

    Lin is now 27 and going into his prime years. It will be interesting to see how he does the next couple of seasons.

    Yeah, it's amazing how contract/expectations will change the way a player is evaluated. He's the exact same player he has been the past 3 years, but he's very well liked on Charlotte boards.

    His shooting is definitely off, but ppg and apg are less meaningful since he's playing fewer minutes per game and playing less at PG than he has in the past. His per36 points is actually the highest it's been since his Knicks days. His defense is also vastly improved (he is arguably the Hornets' best defender right now with MKG out of the lineup), with his per36 rebounding and blocks significantly higher than in past seasons.
