Lin plays at a quicker pace. That fits in the back court with Lance. Also Lin and Lance have similar "handles". Would make for some very exciting and camera-worthy moments. Hill's style is painful to watch. I am not sure how anyone can like walking the ball every time. Wasting precious SC seconds. As for Lin's chemistry issues. As I recall, he never got a fair shot with GSW. They dealt him because he was an end of the bench guy. Much like they did Bazemore last season.
He wound up in New York with the Knicks. MELO..... convinced Woodson to play him. Woodson did, and Linsanity was born. Unfortunately, Lin wanted to get paid and the Knicks weren't willing to do it. So Houston got him. Unfortunately for Jeremy, Morey is sort of a douche. So after Lin got there, and Houston didn't improve much. Somehow, James Harden taking too many shots became Lin's fault. And that's when rumors of Lin for D. Williams and Lin for a Rondo package, and Lin for a salary dump and a bag of combos became rampant. I think Lin felt used, and lied to. So if he's "caught a tude in Houston". I can't blame him.
Remember, Morey also apparently wants to trade Harden for Melo. And Parson's for Rondo. After he hasn't even had either of them for that long. And both are good shooters and "key" guys. Morey is 'James Bond' evil.
