I agree, he's a good player that went un-noticed for so long. Lin is what the NBA needed this season to take the attention away from the near season ending lockout. It would be nice to see him stay consistent this season to prove the naysayers he's a competitor.
I'll tell you what though, the Knicks and Rockets made a few grand slam moves this offseason. The Knicks chose to go the nursing home route, and the Rockets chose to go the D-League route. It'll be fun to watch them "battle" this season.
