    Hell, how about Lin or Lebron? My vote goes to Lin since he's the anti-Lebron. Lebron passed over to play in New York cuz he's a coward. Seems like Lin is handling the publicity well. :grin:

    Lin is the greatest player in the NBA.

    Getting close to Jordan level now.

    We had our chance at a superstar. Oh well.

    If you voted for Lin and you are serious then you need to go get a cat scan.

    Right now, Rockets won't trade Lowry for Lin. Knicks won't trade Lin for Lowry.

    Everyone's so amazed with Lin dropping 38 because of all the media hype prior to this game... What every other person failed to notice and should be more amazed at instead?.. Jared Jeffries almost had a double double!

    Linsanity over Lousy Lowry

    i Really never liked Lowry. I always still am a true Aaron Brooks fan. JEREMY LIN > Lowry all day.

    No other player will score 35 alongside Melo alone. That guy is one of the most selfish players ever. Ask Amare.

    I hope Lowry in the next game gets a triple double to shut all the band wagoners up.

    I just can't help but laugh. How about a full year before this? To much to ask? Also saw Lin for the first time and he looked clumsy a lot but he did have the handles to save him.

    True. The current Jeremy Lin will not mesh with a ball-hogging Amare and Melo. The dream or should i say the Lin-sanity will be over when they return .

    Hindsight is always 20/20. How the Rockets handle the Lin situation, they would do that 9/10 times. They knew he had game, but he was vying for a spot that we already had quality depth at. Furthermore, with the new CBA rules affecting cap room, Flynn had more worth as an expiring (not as a player). Again 9/10 you waive Lin in that situation. Unfortunately, even sound moves can backfire as the world of basketball is a complicated place. And again hindsight is 20/20 so it very easy to say "I told you so" and "Morey isn't a good GM" but it was the right move at the time. No debating that. The only way I see Lin becoming a Rocket was if Dragic or Lowry was traded and you had situation where Flynn and Lin were battling for the backup guard spot. Or Lowry/Dragic had a season ending injury in the offseason. It's a hard pill to swallow but again, it was the right move.

    He reminds me of Dragic actually. Although I'd have to say Jeremy Lin is a little better.

    No, if you voted for Lin and are serious, you need to get off of Clutchfans. Cat scan won't help.

    If I am an owner, I want Lin since there is a huge Asian and US market. If I am a coach, I want both of them.
