When will this kid stop!? I asked the question in my poll a few days ago – vote in the poll to give your opinion. So far Jeremy Lin is averaging 26.8 points and 8.5 assists per game as a starter (last 6 games) for the New York Knicks. Tonight was the first time Lin and Stoudemire got the chance to play together and with their victory, thanks to Lin’s game winning 3-pointer, they didn’t disappoint. The big question is will ‘Melo be able to blend in with this “new” Knicks team? Did he blend in with his “teammates” in Denver? Has he blended in with Tyson Chandler and Stoudemire in New York? The Knicks were 9-15 the game ‘Melo injured his groin. Since that game, and without ‘Melo, the Knicks have won 5 in a row, including 2 home wins over Utah and the Lakers and 3 road victories. One player can’t be blamed for an entire season – but when the supposed best player on the team is taking almost 20 shots per game and shooting less than 40% from the floor and less than 30% from the 3-point line it’s hard to look past those numbers.
