    Cyberx says that the Rockets leaning towards Mike D'Antoni is a way to show Dwight Howard the door. Could it also be a way to show Jeremy Lin the welcome mat?

    Some people say Jeremy Lin is one of the better pick and roll point guards in the league and we all know Mike D'Antoni is the PnR coaching gawd. Some people think that with Lin's improved play this year, he is worth more than the $2 million he is scheduled to get next year and will opt-out.

    If we hire D'Antoni and Lin opts out, should we bring back Lin?

    We might as well bring back the Rocket's dildo jerseys back from the 2000's

    considering he'd be the best PG on the team by far, yes.

    If Dwight leaves Lin would be the second best player on the team.

    Bringing in Pringles is essentially tanking, so might as well stick with Terry

    how about with a pre-emptive, all-out ban of LOFs on Clutchfans? i.e., never let them get a foot in the door. :grin:

    Harden + Lin = 20 TOs per game?

    BTW Lin averaged 1.9 TO/game last season.

    Lin wasn't all that great with the Lakers. No defense period, all offense, and Boozer too.

    I answered "no," but ClutchFans is already great. Poorly worded option, OP.

    It depends. If we're full on tanking, then sure, why not? If we're serious about trying to win, then hell no.

    Word of warning, Lin may command similar $$$ as the $8 million a year he got the first time around. And we all knew how the Rox organization and most of fans felt last time around paying him that.
