    21 points and 9 assists, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals sucks?

    Basketball talk should be banned on this forum because you're all clueless.

    Might be bigger, but not warranted.

    Lin is actually an underdog story.

    Tebow, nomatter what ESPN says... is not. And never will be.

    And Tebow sucks all game long until he throws some fluke 15 yard pass that is ran 70 yards for a TD to win (vs bad teams only). Lin is actually good. All game.

    People seem to forget Tebow was a Heisman winner, and was drafted in the 1st round of the NFL draft. For him to suck as much as he does is the exact opposite of an underdog story.

    Not last night he wasn't, Lin blew several opportunities to come back. The Knicks trailed by 19 at one point, cut it down to 8, then Lin mishandles the ball, and missed 2 easy layups.

    It wasn't only Lin thou, the entire team screwed up.

    Bash Tebow all you want, but don't forget Lin has only beat 1 or two good teams.

    It's the NBA. Not the NFL where you get an entire week off to come back and play full strength.

    Kobe Bryant has off nights. Why would Lin be castrated for having one?

    I'm just saying. And don't go comparing Lin to Kobe, that's as bad as Kobe or LeBron. Compare him to Rubio, but not Kobe.

    *sigh*

    I used Kobe as an example of how the best player in the league even has off nights.

    Funny fact though:

    Lin already has as many career buzzer-beating gamewinners as Lebron James.

    Ouch.

    The very thing Lin has done so great the last 2 weeks, he didn't do last night. He didn't make his team better. I'm not anti-Lin, I'm just saying his little run the past 2 weeks in not bigger than the season Tebow just put together.
