    No it won't lol. Lin is a bench player, a 7th or 8th man, he really is not going to get much better. The guy works every summer on his handles, shot, etc and it never seems to help. He appears to be a decent role player (except at the end of games) and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Actually his handles are much better. Still below average, but no longer terrible.
    It seems he changed his shooting form, maybe why he's seeing a drop in shooting this year.

    I wish the Rockets had a decent role player like Lin. Instead, we have that scrub Ty Lawson.

    Sure you do. Remember how good lawson was before he came to the rockets situation?

    What exactly would happen if lin came back to essentially the same system he was in a few years ago?

    This isn't LaMarcus going to the spurs

    Based on highlights, his handles seem to have improved significantly and he seems quicker laterally (he's always been fast but lacked lateral quickness), maybe he's fully healed from his meniscus tear? Or maybe he's just more confident now because he's playing for a team under the radar.

    Tinsane..Tinsane..tinsane...You just indirectly admitted it's not because Lin is this scrub as you been calling him but it is when a good guard joins the team and they are not as good as they once were with the other team....like you just said it's..."the same system" .... man what is loser you are...you are one of the worst Rocket Fan on this planet.

    you are evaluating Lawson after a few months, I'm evaluating Lin after two years

    Lawson is a better point guard than Lin PERIOD. Even with his drinking problem.

    The Rockets problems are more complicated.

    But a real Rockets fan who watches every season could tell you that.

    A Lin fan only focuses on Lin. It never sees the big picture.

    You realize Golden State dumped Lin too. How they doing?

    Ty Lawson has played terribly with the Rockets...worse than Lin ever did in Houston over a 26 game stretch. But of course, Lawson gets a pass from the haters even tho the problems he faces are exactly the same as the ones Lin faced as a Rocket. A basketball fan sees the big picture.

    Not sure what GSW has to do with this. They cut Lin when they had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Monte Ellis as guards on the roster...not sure anybody has ever claimed that Lin was better than any of these players.

    False. Lin fans repeatedly said Lin was better than Curry. They said Curry was just a function of opportunity and support from the team. Now that Curry has blown up even further, they have retorted to saying Lin is comparable to Curry in certain aspects of the game LOL.

    As for Monta, Lin fans have always Lin is better than Monta.

    That is the stupidity and idiotic delusion you have from the worst fanbase in history of sports - the Lin fans.

    Sorry LOF, the only things that melt are ice cream and Lin fans trying to correlate that teams need Jeremy Lin to be successful.

    LOF? :confused:

    I'm not the one with thousands of posts dedicated to a bench player 2 seasons removed from the team.
