Seriously. Defending mayweather as some sort of cagey intelligent strategist?

This dude isn't that smart, he's just smart about making money.

I'm not. I'm gonna get some pirated internet links and watch the fight for free. Most of my Asian buddies will do the same.

Lin had a nice game so far tonight. Everyone involved, high team FG%....a little too heavy on the TO's but overall a SOLID performance for a PG. Nice. Not like I'm gonna trade Derrick Rose for him but this is a D-leaguer up until 2 weeks ago whom is a SOLID starter for an NBA team. Damn!

Game just ended. 6 was the total. Given his minutes played, still pretty high.

However, he hasn't had 100-200 games with a consistent line-up to figure things out. So, it's highly understandable.

Might be the best time to be a Knicks fan since the delusional crew that used to think they could beat my Bulls.

His style is Nash and JJ Barea like. Driving in the paint and parking there to survey who is open to pass to inside or outside. The play at the end of the 1st half was really nice. The Kings were doubling and tripling him many times during the game to slow down the Knick's offense. I also noticed that he gets tired at the end of 3rd quarters for the past few games which results in quite a few TOs and sloppy with the ball. Good thing the Knicks were blowing out the Kings, thus no need for him to play the 4th quarter. If you notice when he isn't in the game, the Knicks offense has no flow and is pretty stagnant. It was really odd.

That's why Melo coming back is a GOOD THING not a BAD THING
