"The best BACKUP point guard in the league"??? Lin could start for half the teams in the NBA.

Greg Anthony was forced at gunpoint to explain playoff Linsanity.

If you look closely, you can see that he is blinking "SOS" in morse code.

Every time they do a segment on Lin, it's like, "kidding aside, but this kid Lin is actually skilled and deserves to be in the NBA." After a good ol' laugh.

Bottom Line, Lin make a lot of people feel uncomfortable. They constantly have "explain him" year after year.

Greg Anthony started to tear up when Isiah said that Lin has always had the game to play in the NBA.

Like I said in the other thread, the narrative was that Lin is a trickster and trash player. Heat with Charlmers and Coles shut down and ended Linsanity. So, every team or player that gets beat by Lin is worse than trash.

How ironic would it be if the Heat got eliminated in the playoffs by Linsanity?

That sht would be crazy.

However, I was thinking that bookies would make a sht load of money if Hornets won in game 5, and Heat won in game 6.

.


Lin's mom made this exact point in the Linsanity movie...that when he was growing up, people would say "oh, he's ok...but wait til he goes up against Joe Smith"...and then when he'd go up against Joe Smith and dominate him, people would say "oh, Joe Smith really isn't that good. Wait til he goes up against Joe Blow..."...and the same thing would happen.

Yes, it's like a version of the "no true Scotsman" fallacy and "moving goal post".

And, with the added goalpost scotsman now covered in sht.

I'm sure there is a canto victory in there too.

you guys are basically talking about clutchfans and I'm sure if you go to that forum there are rednecks and tyron doing canto victory.

Lin is the 2nd most important player in the series... won them at least 1 game maybe 2... and there will be guys repeating something about "Lin can't shoot" or "Lin not team player" as canto victory.

like

statement:
"Lin just scored 10 straight points and put Miami away"

reply:
"Lin can't dribble. canto victory"

or

"Lin isn't as good as Wade in his prime. canto victory"

or

"last year Houston went to the WCF without Lin, canto victory"

etc
