Ok I have to start a thread to finally bring to the forefront; Jeremy and his propensity to drive and "kick".
It's more or less like: Jeremy Lin's drive and "oh god I hope somebody is there to catch this!"
Why is it that our point guard is doing the right thing by driving and yet fails miserably by throwing the ball aimlessly after hitting traffic? It seems like a routine gig as a part of his driving nature and yet he still fails to see a teamate before he kicks the ball out. I have seen Patrick bail him out numerous times when he tosses the ball backwards hoping someone will be there to receive the wayward pass.
Please someone tell me they have noticed this throughout the season?
Lin's drive to the basket...

I think the announcers like to call it "over-penetrating" (which just keeps sounding worse the more you think about it). But Lin seems to do what a lot of rookies do and just drive in and get cut off or caught in the air. I know he doesn't have Chris Paul handles but this is basic "don't pick up your dribble" stuff. I think priority number 1 for Lin is to develop Tony Parker's tear drop. Once he can hit the floater I think he will get caught in the air less.
