    I haven't been to any games this season, but in the games I did go to last year, all the guys yelled at each other. Parsons yelled a lot, Harden yelled, even poor little Lin yelled at his teammates.

    If you wanna feel sorry for someone, it's Asik. He plays hard all the time but still always gets yelled at for not catching the ball when the whole team should know better than to try some fancy bounce pass to him.

    Not around here dude, and media-wise it's a lot closer than you think.

    he should be used to it. Someone post that "asian father" meme!

    I think he is, but he is strong mentally. it's not going to phase him. He has matured his game that he could easily be the third wheel in a big three situation. With just 14 shots, lin could be averaging around 19. Turnovers are always going to be there.

    I'm kinda confused. Why is Lin being scapegoated, if true? He's the only one who's been solid and consistent in all our wins and losses. Maybe Lin should join Asik in being vocal about being moved.

    Mentioned it before, won't be surprised if Lin being moved to the bench leads to him being traded by Feb, latest.

    Harden is a great scorer, poor defender, and a turnover king.

    Is Asik fairly treated? I want to know about Asik's treatment.

    if Lin is the turnover king, then Harden is the turnover God...averaging 4.8 TO/game compared to Lin's 3.0/game.

    Bro, I don't think that at all. Just sick and tired of the arguments about him and the hate he gets. He is a class act guy on and off the court and he gets **** from everyone.

    It took just one poster for me to go from feeling bad for Lin to rolling my eyes at his deluded fans. Good job.

    Sui generis, A mild case of Jackie Robinson?

    Don't over-generalize.

    Harden superstar my ***. He's just a volumn shooter and trying to draw fouls. His shooting percentages are terrible. Lin is the only efficient player in Houston this season so far.

    I'm a harden fan but I'm starting to hate his ball hogging and jacking up crappy shots.

    Lin, on the other hand... Deserves more respect. Heck, he played better than all of the lakers players tonight.

    Yeah, Im guessing both :(
    The Twin Towers lineup is a disaster, totally disrupts the offense, so at some point Asik is gonna go to the bench.
    That would be $16mil sitting on the bench, just too expensive.

    It makes me sad cuz I really did think they could all work. :(

    He has himself to blame, he can always stand up for himself if teammates yelled at him for nothing

    That's actually a good point. But we know what Lin's personality is.
