Should the Rockets trade Jeremy Lin?
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:45 PM
There's no reason to attempt to put words into my mouth. At no point have I said I hate Lin, also I'd love for him to be our point guard(although I think we could find a better fit). I would like for him to improve, whether it's by becoming a more efficient scorer, passer, or overall facilitator.
A few questions I have for you, do you think Lin is fine the way he's been? Do you believe he's earned/earning his contract by his current play? Do you think Lin is better than Harden?(this is a real question, based on your prior responses it warrants asking).
I answer for you,..do u think lin is fine the way he been?? YES, if the rockets let j-lin plays his natural role back...Do you believe he's earned/earning his contract by his current play? YES, when rocket aquirred lin, rocket need lin to do all the intangable, assist ,steal,rebound and ect, rockets org. said they have enough scorer already, and he does a fine job at his requirment so far....
Do you think Lin is better than Harden? NO.we all know who is better now in scoring the points, but j-lin does all the other thing better than harden. We know who is better NOW, but in couple more years, who know, j-lin might be better than harden. BOTH ARE VERY SMART PLAYERS. BOTH HAVE QUALITY TO BE A SUPERSTAR.

The questions were for Rocketrick, not for you, but ok lol.
blakecousey: make no mistake unless the top says rockets best fan it's not me talking as for your questions, j lin is a nice filler for now. my reservation in trading him would be who is going to replace him? unless we are getting a top point guard ie chirs paul or someone like that it would be stupid. we still need someome to play PG. lin is not an alstar talent wise, but he is a capable fill in. do we need to consider an upgrade at that position.......YES, but we can't just bring in anybody. j lin can help this team and if he learns how to cut the turnovers can really help this team. we can't have stars at every position. would I trade him? only if we are upgrading.

Now, as I've already said, I think Lin deserves at least a two year look before a trade. However, what would we trade him for? We would need a point guard in return so it has to be a three team deal because obviously the team trading for Lin does not have a good one. What team gives out quality point guards like they're candy???? Oh, wait...the Rockets do....
I see a lot of potential in this kid....I think everyone will look back on this thread one day and laugh at the thought of trading him.

Trade Jeremy Lin? No, unless you can bring in a young top point guard prospect. But I don't think Kyrie or Damian are available right now. And I don't think I'd pull the trigger on a Lin for Wall trade. I hear Kyle Lowry might be available... ;-)
Some perspective on the whole "Lin not playing well" issue -- I lived in Dallas from 1998 to 2003, and attended a ton of Mavs games. To this day, my sister still refers to Steve Nash as Boo Nash because of how Dallas fans mercilessly booed Steve Nash during games. Steve Nash!
The point guard position is a tough position to learn, and it generally takes great point guards 3-4 years of constantly playing to truly understand it (and yes, Kidd and Paul were exceptions here)...
So my point: give Lin some time -- this is the right time and team for him to learn this trade. Although we're sniffing at the playoffs right now, we're not near being a championship contender yet, and there's a lot of growth needed for everyone on this team (including Harden).
Trade Lin only if you can get a better point guard who is younger or at a similar point in their career, and one who has greater potential.
