Well, those two games have just been dynamite haven't they? I've watched mouth agape. It's not just what Jeremy Lin is doing, but how he's doing it. The way he moves, it's so easy to flashback to so many great point guards. I swear I've seen Nash out there once or twice these past two games.
Which brings me to the important question we all don't want to ask ourselves: What is Lin's future?
I think he's at the very least proven he belongs in an NBA rotation. But I don't think anyone thinks he'll continue to replicate the performances he's had thus far.
How far will he fall back to earth? Certainly, most of the things he's doing seem like things he can do every single night, but I think we don't really know who he is as a player yet. We haven't seen enough of him. It's only two games.
I think everyone views him as a quality backup, but can he develop into someone who plays like he has all the time? Will he be our backup or is he our PG of the future?
