You're kind of a bully, seth. It's odd, you seem to love to pile on "mild" trolling of anyone in the minority opinion. But that's all besides the point, we can name call (which I'd rather not do) or we can discuss Lin. Your decision.
I think the biggest gap between what the pro-Lin (me, iggy) and the con-Lin (most others) seem to realize is just how awesome he's been.
This isn't Darren Collison performing slightly above average as a rookie starter (which is impressive). This is a guy who is playing as well (if not better) than any player in the league, aside from LeBron James.
He won Eastern Conference Player of the Week and it was 100% deserved. Collison didn't even come close to that award! So everyone knows that Lin will regress - no one thinks he's LBJ's equal. But even with some regression anticipated, his projecting based on his stuff as a starter is literally all-star caliber. He's also still young! In other words, those that are trying to peg a ceiling on him... Let's wait a month.
