    me either, but I Just skip reading some of them because they are so dumb. but the other spectrum is you have people making threads that could easily go into a game thread or another. people are just so attention seeking these days it's pretty annoying.

    He's saying this in public, but when he meets with Morey he's gonna ask that Lin+Parsons+picks be traded for Rondo.

    I liked what Lin did last night and I liked that he actually hold on to the ball. I give him props to that. But the series isn't over yet, he still has a lot to do.

    what's the advantage of acquiring Rondo?
    we already got a PG "Harden" dribbling all the time.:confused:

    Dwight has lost faith in Harden. With Bev sick and injured he's praying another guard shows up.

    Dwight is showing his leadership, and has taken over the team. It's still H-H's team, but Howard is obviously a more vocal leader.

    this is good news i guess, the offense looked well structured when Lin was using PNR and wheeling and dealing to his teammates

    So your analysis is that it's cool that Dwight works to build Lin up, and his next step should be to tear Harden down?

    Yes we somehow need to get Harden to play defense, but the juxtaposition there is a bit jarring.

    It's like this team and the team 20 years ago have so much in common, it's scary. The fact that they believe they can still pull this series off shows something, the toughness and mentality is there. Damn it is Friday yet?!

    Well, it could also be argued the Linsanity is a rip off of Vinsanity (Vince Carter).

    Still, Linsanity/Vinsanity makes a TON more sense than Beardsanity.

    Vin/Lin/in is a play on words. I've never been a fan of "beardsanity". Beard/in is kind of just forcing the words to fit.

    Now Fear the Beard... that works. :grin:

    I love the quote from Dwight. I have liked him all season, but he has been, for the most part, phenomenal during these playoffs.

    We have played two games in Portland. Both of which, neither Jeremy Lin or James Harden had very good games, but we still won 1 and were close enough to say we could have pulled off the win in Game 4 as well.

    We can win Game 6 in Portland. Even if one of those guys doesn't perform as well as they are capable of. We have a balanced enough team with enough players who are capable of stepping up and filling those voids if we need them.


    It won't be easy. We will need guys to step up. If we build another double digit lead like we have had in every game of this series so far (I think?), then we need to do a better job of holding on to that lead and to keep attacking!

    When was the last time Rondo has been good? I haven't seen a good Rondo on the court in what seems like forever.

    If Harden invoke a trade will be fun for Howard. Post up all day. We can bring back C.Lee at 2 also trading Harden. Lin/Bev - Lee - Parsons - Asik - Howard. First round exit bound.

    Got to love Dwight, get Lin to watch Linsanity to hype him. He's so positive I could see DH's personality being a selling point for a guy like Melo wanting to play on this team.

    It's nice to see Dwight pumping the young fellow-up. That might explain why Lin is playing better despite his troubles.

    I think Linsanity is the perfect name for him. He drives us all linsane in the 4th quarter and he seems to be a bit of a mental case himself. You never know what you get from Lin - it could be greatness, it could be horror. It's truly Linsanity.

    And then when you throw in all the LOF's and LOH's, it becomes LINSANITY!!!!!

    Forget Linsanity, just show Lin the tape of game 5!
