    Believe it or not, as bad as Airemy Lin is, there is actually some limited use for him in the NBA.

    He is good to have in practices where other players can boost their confidence playing against him.

    Beverley was practically a nobody until he started to regularly destroy Airemy Lin in practices. So much so that McHale was forced to take away Lin's starting spot and give it to Beverley.

    Same with Jordan Clarkson, a rookie. Once he started to destroy Airemy Lin in practices, Scott had to demote Airemy and give his spot to Clarkson.

    These players built their confidence up by playing against and destroying Airemy Lin in practice everyday.

    In their heads, once they started to destroy Airemy in practice, they thought, "Wow! If this scrub can be in the NBA, I can be a star", and their game improved significantly.

    The trick is not to depend on Airemy in actual games. That's where you pay the price.

    Let's talk about when will Lin lose his starting job this season?

    Before the start of the season?

    Before the All star game?

    20 games into the season?

    By the end of the season?

    I will say before the all star game if they are under .500 and in last place.

    Lin is a great player, he is constantly brought down by the racist media. He would be Lebron if the league wasn't racist against him

    Can't say I agree. No way Lin can do his hair like Lebron's...

    He is better suited as the 6th man for the Nets now, since they now have Russell and he will be the center piece of the team like Harden became when Lin was here with the rockets. LeVert will be the PB of the Nets and take Lin's starting spot.

    Secure fans don’t join team fan sites to tell the team fans that their idol is great when he’s clearly not

    Lin looks pretty bad in 4 games, Dlo looks like a stub and will have a breakout season like Harden did playing next to Lin.

    What made you think DLo look like a stub? He's 6'5".

    Also, JLin's PER this preseason is 19.33. DLo's is 15.36. Just saying...

    DLo can do more for the Nets than Lin. Younger and more talent than Lin.

    Agree that he is younger than Lin, and more talented than Lin was at his age. But Lin is more experienced, and the two of them together will do great things for the Nets.

    That said, I still don't understand why you call Russell a stub. Or did you mean sub? In either case, it makes no sense.
