Well he has a BIG GAME tonight and you better believe he better step his game up. This will be his 3rd game on the road against a winning team and so far he is 0-2 with poor production. So if he stinks it up again tonight on the road against the Mavs then he maybe on his way to the bench.

He certainely needs to pick it up, because after being exposed Lin has been bad and Baron Davis is getting closer to ready to take his job. And unless you get pts instead of 3 for a basket, then how being a minimum wage bench player means next to nothing.

Come on people face it the reason that he got all of the hype is mainly because he is an asian with an ivy league education playing in a league dominated by blacks and whites. For the most part he is an average NBA ball player

Below average on the road against winning teams

Actually let him go head to head with premier guards in the league and then you can properly gauge his real talent

I'm evaluating him on what he does against wining teams on the road, not losing teams at Madison Square Garden

good point I was just thinking about pitting him against another guard and comparing. My reasoning is that their are below average guards on good teams and good guards on sad teams

How many pro-football players have they made a movie about? Why some borderline roster player that had a minor pro-career? Probably because he's white right?

What about that Rudy guy? He must have been a 4 time all-american at Notre Dame for them to make a movie about him....either that or he was asian.

------------------------------------------------------------------
To recap: A walk-on scrub gets playing time with a struggling Knicks team solely due to injuries and they go on a win streak without their stars.

Can you see any other reason besides his race that might capture the interest of the US public which loves the underdog?
