Hey P&ters, this is my first fanpost, after reading this site for a long time. So if I'm not doing this right let me know.
Since the beginning of D'antoni's tenure in phoenix we have seen what a good-great distributing pg can do for d'antoni teams. Throughout D'antoni's time here when we even had a pg like Duhon we've been a good scoring team. From after the melo trade we have not had a good distributing pg and blamed it on melo. Which is ludicrous. We have always known that d'antoni teams live and die by pg play.
Since Linsanity started everyone has been saying what happens when either : a)Lin comes crashing down to earth. Or b) when melo gums up the offense. Well melo is back now and after Miami, the first half of Cleveland, and Boston the pundits and many posters here have been saying "Lin is a scrub, he either put up his numbers against bad teams, or 70 yr old pgs". Well I have news for you Lin isn't going away. The only bad games he had were against Miami and Boston. Miami's other players besides for the Three Little Pigs, are there for D only, therefore they have one of the best Ds in the game. In the Boston game a) The officials stunk. b) He got into early foul trouble messing with his rythm. c) A lot of shots that would normally fall for him were not falling. and d) The Knicks were doing their best to blow assists for him. For gawd sakes He put up 28/14 against one of the best defenders in the league Shawn Marion. So please everyone step off the ledge, and see your psychiatrist for Reverse Linsanity Disorder.
