Super Lin-tendo!
 
I'm kinda a passive follower of the NBA, but man, what a great story! Never got drafted, sent to the D league numerous times, almost cut before this season. Now an NBA super star for the moment.

He has played 5 games (good ones) in a 82 game season. I don't understand the hype? I mean I can see Knicks fans being excited but otherwise I think a lot of it is the media needs something to hype and the NBA is desperate for hype.

That league is dead to me. How can NCAA basketball be so exciting and the NBA is just a step above WWE?

best story of the year in the NBA, always been a closet Knicks fan. I just think its funny Melo was suppose to the be the savior and this kid is the truth. Also it was nice to see Lin out play Kobe last friday night in the garden dropping 38 on his ass

Five good games??

Nobody has scored more points in his first five career starts SINCE THE MERGER. Not Jordan, not Kobe, not Shaq, nobody.

He's All Lin. Kid's balling.

Re: Super Lin-tendo!
 
Last night was my third time watching him play. I almost fell off the bar stool when he hit that three. He'll probably fall back to earth, so to speak, but the kid is a really good basketball player.

Oh, he was in the Wizards camp too.

Re: Super Lin-tendo!
 
When was he in Wizards camp?

Regardless of whether he's forgotten in a year, which I seriously doubt, why dismiss what he's accomplished these past several games? It's a historic performance.

2 of the top 10...might want to rethink its popularity?

Doubt it. How could he be worse going forward than other very good players at his position like Jrue Holiday and Ty Lawson? He'll at least outpace them.

You're probably right in saying he won't sustain this level of Rajon Rondo/Derrick Rose ish production. But he doesn't need to do that to keep the Knicks winning. He doesn't even need to be Steve Nash. It's all up to Carmelo, if he meshes with Lin and changes his ball-hog mindset, that team will run deep in the playoffs.

You might forget his name because you're not an NBA fan. I don't see how he drops out of the sport world's consciousness, though.

I love the NBA have watch as long as the NFL it is just gotten to the point where it seems fake to me. Thus my WWE reference.

I was not questioning it's popularity but it's realism.
