He can have a bad game he just has to show that he is worth keeping on the team. And by that I mean having mutiple games under 10 pts on top of the team losing

He seems to play his best basketball in NYC which included wins over the Mavs and Lakers but on the road he struggled against the Raptors and Timberwolves even though the Knicks were able to still win.

27 points, 11 assists, and hitting the game winner is struggling?

The Knicks needed a late steal from Shumpert to be in position to win that game in Toronto. Without that steal that's a loss. Now Lin did he thing and played well late in the game but they were losing all night.

You question if Lin will even be in the league next year but....27-11 is "doing his thing"?

He's going to have to do a lot to win me back because I don't believe in seeing a grown man with no confidence.
You must be kidding. The Heat intimidate a LOT of players, and certainly not just minimum wage bench players like him. He doesn't need to 'win' you or anyone else back. He is an overachiever, and while he does get a lot of hype in the media, it is well deserved.
