Lin is also benefitting from a condensed season with no practices. You really think a good NBA coach couldn't figure out a scheme to stop him? Check out his shot chart this season, I counted a whopping 11 shots ALL SEASON from left of the paint.
Yes I have watched him, yes I agree that you have to watch the Knicks to get what he does for the Knicks (which can be summed up as: their other PGs are so horrible that they can't afford to play him less than 36mins/game).
But he's not only breaking scoring records. He is breaking turnover records left and right. I'm not saying he's awful or brilliant. I'm saying a) it's too early to judge anything seriously (because even if teams adjusted to the shot chart I showed, he might adjust his game back the other way) and b) if you HAVE to make a judgment, there is no need to be extreme about it. I could see him being a lower tier starting PG or an excelling 2nd-unit guard who specializes in igniting the offense off the bench (rich man's JJ Barea)
