    It's only the start of his 2nd full season in the NBA.

    Yes the turnovers are a major problem but Harden/Bev can deal playing some PG which will lessen them.

    I like that he can drive, score 3's, and assist. I see a lot of potential once we get a PF or better coach decisions.

    If he maintains a 70% TS on high volume, he can be our primary star for all I care.

    I think it's at least a possibility

    What is TS?

    I think whoever has the hot hand (Harden or Lin) should be our primary star at the end of the game. I do not believe Howard can handle the pressure, but is a tremendous help on defense

    Doesn't matter if we're a mediocre team. Please win more games first.

    Our big 3's members have become flaccid when it's time to stand up in crunch time.

    True Shooting percentage. It's basically a measure of how efficiently a player has been scoring when you incorporate Free Throws and 3 pointers. If Lin shoots 70% on high volume over a season, he'd essentially be a scoring God.

    Too early to tell, small sample size. I think he will have a great season but I don't know about big 3 material. Time will tell...

    I'd much prefer this team to just freaking win. Don't care about big 3 or not. Just beat the teams we're supposed to beat!!!

    We need to win a lot more games. I want to see him play better against good competition, not just to scrub teams like the Raptors and Sixers.

    Agreed, if we can't close out games doesn't matter the talent level.

    Big 3 cliche is so damn overplayed. What are the Kings supposed to call Cousins/Isaih Thomas/ & McLemore their big 3? Are the Lakers supposed to call Gasol/Henry/Blake their big 3?

    The Rockets need a big 8 (as in 8 man rotation), and a big defense... which by the way is HALF of the game right now. scoring points, and putting up stats is just window dressing. Winning games with a team effort night after night is the framework & the foundation for which the house is built.

    I think he already is part of the big 3?

    But Dwight and Harden are both top 10 players in the league

    Forget big 3, the team needs to work on FTs. Shooting 50-60% from the line is what is keeping all these games so close.

    Lin has the ability to play at a very high level. We are all witnesses, we just have to see if he is able to do this on a consistent basis. If he can I don't see any reason why he can't be a top 10 pg.
