It may be noted that I was never in favor of the hype surrounding Lin, but I never wished for Linsanity to end like this.
Godspeed on healing Jeremy. You are a Knick and we Love you!
"One last issue I have with Lin pertains to his minutes and how he attacks the rim and draws contact. In San Antonio, Coach Popovich has always kept Manu Ginobili’s minutes around 30 per game in effort to keep the Argentine pinball healthy.
Lin plays with a Ginobili-like reckless abandon and, if he’s going to hold up physically, Coach D’Antoni can’t keep playing him close to 40 minutes every night. Lin will need to learn to pace himself and pick his spots.
He has already taken a bunch of brutal hits; at this rate, he’s bound to have an injury any day now." * Delshayno comments
It seems that Stephon has proved many Knicks fas wrong after they criticized Marbury for his insistence that he would go to China and become a star. He seems to have found great success, happiness and a new basketball home in China as he and his huge new fan base embrace each other. Stephon, known as Ma Bu Li in China, has led the Beijing Ducks to a 2-0 lead over the defending Champions Guangdong Tigers in the CBA Championships which continued today at 7:45 am ET. The fourth game will be held n March 28th in Beijing, also at 7:45 ET. It can be seen on www.firstrowsportseu.com.
Aaron Brooks, who signed a big contract with the Tigers as a restrictive free agent after his rookie contract expired, leads Marbury's opponents who were favored to win the CBA championship. Aaron Brooks, who is averaging 21.2 ppg, 4.7 assists, 1.9 steals and has 84.9 free-throw % and is second in 3-pt % (41.6) and third in field-goal % (54.0), is expected to return to the NBA at the end of his contract after the CBA concludes. He may not sign a new NBA contract until July, but Marbury is expected to stay in China and continue to enhance his growing brand.
Earlier this month, Marbury seemed to relish D'Antoni's abrupt and unceremonious departure from the Knicks which he predicted long ago. In a twitter moment, he called D'Antoni a "coward" and used the hashtag #DANPHONY. He sounds so much like a fanatic, doesn't he?
