Watch out for Steven Adams, he's a 7 foot Kiwi centre, athletic as hell. He's committed to Pitt next season and there's been talk of him being a one-and-done lottery pick. People are saying he could go #1 in 2013 but it's obviously way too early to say for sure. I'm banking on him being NZ's next big thing, can't wait for next years college season.
Lin's production is not gonna last. Right now he's a completely unknown commodity. Let the scouts work their magic on him and he's going to be a TO-machine in a couple of weeks. Factor in Melo and Stoudemire coming back and playing ISO and you get rid of all the stuff a true PG gives you.
It is interesting that Knicks nation is so starved for success that this dude has become so huge over the course of 4 games, 3 of which were played against non-playoff teams.
Correct, Sohum. American media is unreal, how they hype up players. Hes playing out his skin but 'MVP' haha what a joke. You can't chant that to a bloke playing his 4th game. But yeah he will get figured out, hes a good rag from riches story though.
Oh and make it 4 teams Sohum, the Lakers are going to be lucky to make the 8th spot if they keep playing on the road like this.
More linsanity today. When he wound that clock down I just knew he was going to hit the game winner.
People can go on about all of his turnovers, and sure, he needs to work on that like many areas if his game, but at the end of the day he's 6-0.
It's not going to last at this level, but he could be a solid starter in the league.
