    Yep, can you imagine. Guy leaves the team 2 seasons ago and after almost a year of the thread being started it's still on Page 1 with nearly 11K replies. All this for an unassuming backup guard making 2M a year. :confused:

    I want a ban on overseas IPs where the majority of the poster's historical posts are in the Lin threads.

    True. But Llull is not a young guy, fiba players with years of high level basketball on their shoulders doesn't seem to have big problems adapting in the nba...and to be a european player he has quite a few energy. Your point can still be valid, but personally i have no worries about him being ready for the nba.

    Do it.
    I want to see the internet burn.
    And when lin has it going on as a homerun hitter, he's fun to watch. when he doesn't he makes you want to cut yourself.

    The question should be "is Lin willing to come back to the Rockets, even with Mike Anthony"?

    Lin has shown he doesnt need Mike Anthony to be good. He just doesnt need a ball dominant 2-guard and a stone age inside out no spacing offense like Byron Scott's.

    I dont see why he would rejoin the Rockets.

    So now we've hired Mike D'Antoni and Jeremy Lin has opted out. Steps 2 out of 3 are complete. Should we bring back Jeremy Lin?

    Comical seeing as how Lin played at his best while in Houston, alongside a dominant 2 guard, in a lower usage role.

    errr if he was never a Rocket before I think most people would say hell yea exactly what this team needs. But we've already seen this before, it doesn't work, so no.

    what's comical is that those #'s also say his best defensive season came as a Laker.

    I don't want Lin mostly because his fans are sociopaths.

    This would be the only reason I wouldn't want him back lol. On a fair contract from a basketball standpoint he can play.
