Jeremy Lin belongs in China not the USA. In China he would start in several teams but not in America. He is not even an American citizen. Beverly played much better that is why McHale made him a starter.

Hi, Ginobili aka Snowflake aka Indian aka (two or three other smurf accounts in the China forum). You are just trying to be a troll and stir up trouble.

You know that Jeremy Lin was born in Los Angeles, California. You know that last night Lin shot 5-8 for 16 pts, 3 assist, 3 steals and 2 blocks in 31 minutes of play. While in 33 mins of play Beverly was 1-10 with his lone basket being assisted by a pass from Lin. Beveley also managed to rack up 5 personal fouls as he had trouble containing a 39-year old Steve Nash (who is a future Hall of Famer... but he should not be able to beat Beverly one-on-one with crossover moves at his age).

There is only one Ginobili. All thru the pre-season Beverley was much better than Lin and last year in the playoffs Jeremy Lin choked big time and Beverly was great. Heck why pay Lin so much, he is not even American he was born in Beijing, heck in China he would only play daily for three bowls of rice. Last night he was no different, Beverly outplayed him or otherwise Kevin would not play him over 30 minutes. Patrick is a much better defender than Lin. And Patrick pays taxes to america not China.

If hasn't done yet, Ginobili shall call Sara Palin or Michele Bachman or both. They will instantly become soul mates because they indeed belong to the same leagues..

Like Bachman and Palin and Donald Trump would do, I will have to check Jeremy Lin's DNA and birth certificate to make sure that he is legit. Well anyways Berverley will start ahead of Lin tonight again. Why pay a foreign national so much money.

Look ,McHale is no dummy he did not start Patrick in front of Jeremy Lin for nothing. I am no racist like some ppl tried to paint me, I just tell the truth. Lin and Hardin both too turnover prone, the Rockets need Beverley in there, way less t/o prone than either. Beverley is the same kind of player like Shane Battier, a winner.

Look, Pat is starting ahead of JL again tonight. Pat is to McHale more valuable than Lin, Pat very seldom turn it over.

Yes Lin scored 34 tonight but those eight t/os were costly.

That's 34 pts and 12 assist by Lin to 12 pt and 5 assist by Beverley. I agree turnovers are not the best... but that is a lot better than shooting 11% from the 3pt line (30% overall) as Beverley has the last two games.

After watching the Rockets for several games and looking at Pat. His numbers and his lack of size does not warrant him as a starter. His low turnovers are a plus but he does almost nothing else well. Lin have improved a lot overall but handling the ball. He should start in my opinion but McHale is the coach and I tried to backed him as I am also a coach. But starting Pat ahead of Lin is ridiculous.

Yesterday's game , Lin and Beverley's defenses were just horrible. Lin has been good in the other games but he gorgot how to play defense against the 76ers.

I thought Lin would be tired after playing in two overtime games and a back-to-back, he did look a little shaky in the beginning (his 3pt shot was off)... but he still ended up having a good night overall against his old team (Knicks).

Jeremy Lin - 21 pts, 2TO
Patrick Beverly - 5 pts, 2TO
Raymond Felton (Lin's replacement on the Knicks)- 8 pts, 5TO

Yes, JL have improved a lot. He looks more comfortable as a sixth man and not playing along with James Harden as much. JH demands the ball a lot and so does Lin, so their playing styles collide. I like to see Lin as a facilitator and Harden as moving w/o the ball. That Iso-Harden does not work well. Lin sees the court much better than Harden.

Fishes, JL was born in Palo Alto ,Calif not too far from where I live. His family lived in the LA area for awhile then moved to Palo Alto and had JL. Hwe has an older brother and a younger brother, Christian family. Say Ginobili told you no one else. JL is better off playing with the second unit, Harden and him do not match. But to win a championship, Lin has to be the PG not Harden, Iso-Harden will never work against better teams. That ball hogging looks good on Harden's stats but does not help the team. With the team that Houston have, they can do better .

Lol... You are starting to argue with posts you made yourself from the SAME Topix account in this thread.

Seems like you are getting lazy in your trolling attempts and are forgetting to switch which Topix accounts you are posting from (Ginobili aka Snowflake aka Pinoy aka Tongan aka Indian, etc...)
