yep IMO lin should have been player of the game.
once Kemba started to let Lin make plays, game got a lot easier for him.

knicks feed gave Kemba player of the game.
probably Lin had 3 TO's in the 4th turned them off.



WHO CARES WHO the Knicks picked as the Player of the Game ???

To the Charlotte fans,
Jeremy was the Player of the Game !!!

And Jeremy was a happy man after the game.

Knicks feed named Lin as "key performer"...commentators had some good things to say about him, too.

Lin got excited when the knicks came to town. He's more active than before. Although we don't know if he want to score to improve his performance and statistics for the summer market.

The rumor now is Lin for Derrick Rose after this season is over. If Hornets can't make the playoffs, it's only less than 3 months left.

The Hornets must have to trade away quite a few of their players just for Derrick Rose and Jeremy's contract is just a FILLER !!!

It's pretty clear that Lin's aggressiveness is dependent on what sets and plays are being called by the coaches. No question that they called more plays for Lin in this game...maybe because Kemba was shooting poorly early in the game, but many more plays called for Lin to handle the ball than in other games. Also, Knicks seemed to trap him less off screens than other teams, giving him more room to work.

Lin's also excited because his chance to step up arrives. So many players were OUT last night, Batum, Lamb, Zeller, etc. So it was Linsanity situation again.

Lin/Batum is the supposed SG position, but Lin's more like a PG. So when he first came to this team, he's supposed to be Walker's substitution. However, Walker plays EXTREMELY well this season, especially after Big AL is OUT. He's kinda like the Jordan of Hornets now. Lin HAS to move on and find other opportunities. And last night Batum was not able to play...

Lin has to polish his shooting skill and jump shots. If he wants to play the substitute for Batum and let coach trust him more and give him more minutes, he needs to be more steady and avoid turnovers. Too many TOs last night too.

Overall, the road in front of the hornets is still tough....

Lin is the backup PG and SG. When Walker and Batum are healthy, Lin will lead the bench...either as the PG or the SG depending on who else is healthy and/or playing well. Eg. if Lamb is playing well, Lin will play PG...if Lamb is not, then Lin will play SG with Roberts at PG.

That's his role, and until they decide to sign him to a longer (and more market-appropriate) contract, that's what his role is going to continue to be.

OK. I thought he could only play PG. Maybe I'm wrong.
