His legend began in a Bobcat-Knicks game in Charlotte.... And that is all I can say about that.

Lin is too pricey to be a backup which is what he is.

http://www.opposingv...ats-or-pistons#

The Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets and the Detroit Pistons would be absolutely perfect.

The latter squad made a big splash signing Josh Smith, but they still need someone to run the offense. Smith may love to jack up bad shots like a combo guard, but he isn’t a combo guard. Lin is. He would instantly make Detroit’s offense fun to watch and he’d fit in perfectly with a group that’s stacked from a bigs perspective, but is lacking when it comes to impressive guard play.

Charlotte is a less ideal landing spot than Detroit, but it also would be a pretty solid fit for Lin. Although there is a lot of hoopla regarding his contract, who exactly besides Al Jefferson has willingly come to the Bobcats in recent years? They need to make a splashy move of some sort, and Lin dominating the ball here wouldn’t be much of a problem either. From both a PR and basketball standpoint, it makes sense. And whereas Houston clearly always had its sights set on acquiring a big name star, Charlotte’s aspirations are much less lofty. They’ll be satisfied with Lin so long as he produces.

At the end of the day, regardless of where Lin ends up, the Rockets do want to trade him. Fans can delude themselves into thinking otherwise if they want, but that won’t change the facts at hand. One way or another, if there is a move to be made, Morey will make it before the season begins.

We've got no need for him here. He'd sell jerseys but I've got my wagon hitched to the Kemba train.

With Al Jefferson and Zellar...Im all in on Kemba as well.

Lin is a better deep shooter but if Kemba gets the pick and roll down he will be a star...or at least a just outside All star level guy.

Tony Parker could not hit the side of the backboard his first three seasons so there is a lot of promise with Kemba.

Gary Neal being a free aagent now that SA recinded their Free Agent tender on him is interesting.

No argument for me but I am more alarmed the Bobcats are mentioned in a trade thats looks to be a PR move but not a move that makes sense for the team.

My only thought of a Lin fit is to take the minutes from Sessions but... Not for Lin's salary.

Is this rumor legit? Whatever but it is curious..

When Kemba is on it is poetry.

The article isn't loading through my phone, but from what you quoted it seemed more speculative than scoop.

It is definitely speculative....but hey not a whole lot of Bobcats news at the moment.

If I can get a good Kemba You tube highlight then the thread was well worth it.

Agreed on the article being pure speculation. I would only see Lin as that "third point guard" that Clifford has been talking about. With that contract there is no way. I would even say that I have no idea what thought process the author is using here. I don't think Lin makes a lick of sense here...

I don't want Lin at all, but could you imagine what that would do for the Cats/Hornets image?

Dont want him this year. Love to have him next year. Not sure how true this rumor is though, still dont see it happening. I would love to see Lin in a Laker jersey.

I have to agree, it seems like the article is pure speculation due to the fact that not once does if say the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets have interest in Lin.
