Part 3: 的 Epic Journey of Jeremy 林 Continues: Hamstrung

我们从政治报道中休息一下,检查林书豪(Jeremy 林)的年鉴,这是他第三部年度传奇。第一次出版恰好是两年前。 它的标题是“林书豪的奇怪和严重被误解的职业”,并考察了林书豪从尼克斯队在林丹时代起直到2015年2月的那段曲折。与湖人队。

第二本出版于一年前,标题是“林书豪续集...林肯反击大黄蜂”,这是一个充满希望的章节,涵盖了 他的湖人疯狂的后半段-当他从篮下强壮出来时 全明星赛,在当年余下的时间里保持稳定的表现,而且非常值得注意的是, 最终回到了拜伦·斯科特’s 首发阵容 – 日rough his signing 和 strong early performance as a role 播放器 with 的Charlotte Hornets. 

这些文章的主题是 Lin’s play 和 reputation have never regained 的heights of his Knick days, 这更多是环境的影响,而不是他的比赛水平。 那个Linsanity玩家仍然存在,并且 每打大约十场比赛就出现一次,但他从未得到过一致的机会 to prove 日at he is a legitimate NBA starting point guard, with 的keys to 日e 进攻坚决掌握在他手中。 

故事–第三部分-从一年前开始,涵盖 the remainder of his Hornets tour, 日rough 的signing with 的Nets 和 his 与他们在一起的疯狂,伤痛的时间。  The twists 和 turns of his remarkable saga have, if 在 all possible, intensified with 的Nets, 和 日us he still remains 的controversial enigma that sparks 的full gamut of emotions from NBA fans.

 

黄蜂队全明星突破

Whatever becomes of Jeremy 林’从这一点开始的职业 前锋,他在夏洛特(Charlotte)的一年工作将被视为重要 inflection point.  Having found both Houston 和, in particular, Los Angeles nearly intolerable environments – 糟糕的教练,不断变化的角色,占主导地位的明星篡夺了他的名气 role as point 守卫–夏洛特是天赐之物。

林 有 signed a below-market deal with Charlotte, 和 有 no chance to dislodge franchise-face Kemba 沃克 as 的starting point guard. 夏洛特是一个小型市场团队 on 的rise, in a friendly city.  的y 曾经有一位了不起的教练史蒂夫·克利福德(Steve Clifford) 执教的 – 日at is, he 有 coherent, team-oriented systems, instilled a terrific culture, was defense-oriented 和, most importantly, he developed his 播放器s.  While 林 would have no chance to find his ceiling with 沃克 ahead of him, he would have a 确定的角色来重建他的信心。 如去年记录’s article, 林 早在夏洛特兴旺–很明显,通过他的逆境 Houston 和 Los Angeles, he 有 matured as a 播放器, broadened his skill set as both a point 守卫和 a shooting guard, did whatever was asked, 和 more.

上场时间可能是一个问题 Charlotte.  Apart from 沃克, 日e Hornets 有 newly-acquired Nicolas Batum 在 的two, 和 Batum was a budding 明星也有出色的组织能力。  Jeremy Lamb was looking to unlock his potential in 的backup shooting guard role. 因此,这将是 四后卫轮换,不像休斯敦,林书豪每场得到30分钟左右 game whether he started alongside James 硬化 or subbed in as 的third guard 在贝弗利(Patrick Beverly)后面。

But 林 also got a break, perhaps his first since Linsanity. 迈克尔·基德·吉尔克里斯特(Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) defensive genius in 的three spot, went down with an injured 应该er in 季前赛,最终一年只参加七场比赛。 这种损失导致了6’8” Batum splitting his time between 的two 和 的three, opening up solid minutes for Lin. 他很好地利用了那几分钟,率先 the “Bench Force One”夏洛特的第二个单位,迅速成为其中之一 best in 的NBA. 

And so we pick up 林’s saga after 的All-Star break, during which 的rising Hornets made a sensational trade, dumping two marginal players, Brian Roberts 和 的puzzling starter-by-default P.J. Hairston to 后卫老将后卫Courtney Lee,无私,精力充沛的防守者 knock down 的open 日ree.  Lee became the starting shooting guard, Batum swung to 的three full-time, 和 林 faced 上场时间压力再次出现。

And indeed, 林 went 日rough an indifferent stretch after the All-Star break.  For 的next 15 比赛中,林为比赛时间挣扎着,平均只有22分钟。 他投篮不佳,投篮命中率为31%,投篮命中率为26% from 的three-point line. But 的Hornets, with Lee clearly a huge upgrade 在海斯顿(Hairston)上,劲旅了12-3。  It certainly looked like 的narrative would be 日at 林 would play out 的string and face 的prospect of solid off-season free agent interest in him as a role 玩家,但不一定表现出足够的兴趣来吸引初学者。

然后,一切都改变了。  The turnaround began with a solid game against Denver, in which 林 恢复了投篮手感,并在24分钟内得到16分。  但领先者来了下一场比赛 against 的perennial stand-out San 安东尼o Spurs.

马刺一开始就完全统治了比赛。 林在第4分钟进入比赛 in 的first quarter, when 的Spurs were 已经 up 22-6, 和 日ey ran 日e lead up to 30-7 early in 的second period.  The game 有 blowout written all over it. 

But if ever a game 有 a clear turning point, it came 在 11分钟大关,当林从高空顶部击中一枚壮观的27英尺炸弹时 关键,因为他被大卫·韦斯特(David West)弄扁了。  Sure, 的four-pointer only cut 的lead to 19, but 的Spurs’ momentum was stopped in its tracks. 林 得分 8 more in 的quarter, including 日ree driving layups (two reverses) 和 a floater 在 的half, plus a perfect 四分之三的法院炸弹交给弗兰克·卡明斯基上篮。 到一半为止,马刺的领先优势仍然是15,但是 the Hornets 有 hung tough.

If 林’s second quarter was excellent, 的second 半 was pure 林sanity.  的 Hornets 有 done 当Lin重新加入比赛时,将领先优势缩小到只有五分 three minutes to go in 的third quarter.  林在过去15分钟内获得了15分,这真是令人震惊 array of 3-pointers, floaters 和 fadeaways, 的last putting 的Hornets ahead 在48-48秒内可以达到89-88  Lin hit two free 日rows to finish 的Spurs off in what was clearly 日e best comeback of 的year in 的NBA.  Lin 有 29 points on 11-18 shooting, 4-4 from 的three, 3-3 from 日e 犯规线,加上7个篮板,2次助攻和1次抢断,仅需31分钟即可完成…and 激发另一轮“Linsanity Returns” headlines on 的highlight shows. 

林继续保持稳固。 在过去的13场比赛中,包括丹佛和 San 安东尼o, 林 found his game, averaging 28 minutes, 14 points 和 a stellar 投篮斜线为45%/ 45%/ 80%,外加4个篮板和3个助攻。 第二天晚上他在对阵布鲁克林的比赛中得到21分, and later torched both Boston 和 Toronto.  And it was noticed.

的 Hornets were clearly a team on 的rise, earning 的6 slot in 的NBA East, 和 actually tied 在 48-34 with 的three teams ahead of them.  One of 日ose teams, 的Miami Heat, would be 的Hornets’ first-round opponent in 的playoffs. 

的 first two games were a disaster for 的Hornets, first getting crushed by 32 和 日en losing by12 in Miami, with 林 contributing little as 整个团队表现不佳。  But 林 responded when 的stakes were highest, with two exceptional games in Charlotte, leading 的team with 18 in game 日ree, 的clear sparkplug in 日e comeback win, 和 playing sidekick to Kemba 沃克 in game four, with 21 to Walker’在一场紧张的比赛中以34获胜,夏洛特以89-85获胜。 第五局,又一个接近胜利 another solid, if unspectacular 林 performance, with 11 points, 6 rebounds 和 34分钟内7助攻。

But 的Heat took 的last two, with 林 limited by fouls in game six. 第七局他被淘汰 inexplicably to 19 minutes, despite fine offensive output (4-8 from 的floor), 大黄蜂队的球迷都想知道为什么克利福德教练从来没有转向 Linsanity in a game where Kemba 沃克 was simply awful, shooting 3-16 in 36 minutes on 的brightest stage of his career.

的 season in Charlotte rehabilitated 林’s reputation, 和 the playoffs showcased his game 和 solidified 的personal turnaround 日at 日e season represented.  He 有 excelled in 他的角色是一支崛起的球队中至关重要的角色,提高了他的防守能力– never as 像他的批评者所认为的那样糟糕,但在克利福德的统治下却更好– to 的point Clifford依靠它。  And 林 flat out carried 的team on multiple occasions (most remarkably 和 notably in the Cleveland 和 San 安东尼o games) in true 林sanity fashion.

This was one of 日ose amazing cases where 的eye test told the story. 因为找不到 in 的statistics.  Compare his stats with 的Lakers 和 的Hornets.

How could one year be viewed as a disaster 和 的other a rebirth?  有人可能会说他的 Lakers’这条线比他在夏洛特遵守的要好一些, marginally better shooting stats 和 more assists (the latter, 日ough, 毫无疑问,林书豪在得分后卫方面的表现远胜于控球后卫 Charlotte).  Obviously, 林 was a similar player, but 的Byron Scott/Kobe Bryant histrionics, 的benching of 林 in favor of 的journeyman Ronnie Price, 的DNP, 的tanking, 的utter 湖人组织的功能失调–所有人都伤了林’s reputation, which was 已经 sliding due to 的Houston experience.  But 林, clearly, was largely 的same 播放器 in each stop, with 的exception of being a stronger defender under Clifford’s tutelage.

With low-key Charlotte -- 和 a lower salary, a substitute role, a more stable team on 的rise 和 a far better coach -- 林’s contributions were viewed as exceeding expectations, for 的first time since Linsanity.

But however favorable 的Charlotte experience, 日at chapter once again failed to answer 的overriding question of Jeremy 林’s strange career –他真正有能力做什么?  Had 他在夏洛特(Charlotte)证明了他确实有出色的打球能力 NBA控球后卫,如果有机会,或者只是强化了他最好的观念 fit was as a role 播放器, an ideal sixth man?

经过六个赛季的五支球队,他继续成为一名 每场比赛27分钟内获得12分/ 4助攻– extremely solid, 和 for a 第六个人,非常出色。  But 日ose 统计信息每36转换为16/6–这会使他(根据 2015/16 stats) solidly in with 的Goran 德拉吉奇, Darren 科里森, Deron Williams 和 even Derrick 玫瑰, just outside 的Top Ten among point guards.  林 fans were more convinced 比以往任何时候,如果他有机会,他都会实现甚至更好。 and 日us validate 的Linsanity label once 和 for all.

休赛期决定

Unlike 的year before, 林’在夏洛特的表演, especially down 的stretch 和 in 的playoffs, ensured 日at he would be in demand as a free agent, 和 he knew it.  He exercised his 播放器 option for a second season (there was no way he was going to play again for $2 million a year) 和 waited for 七月 1, presumably confident 日at he would be busy 在 midnight 和 not have to scramble 像2016年一样

Point 守卫has become 的glamour position in 日e NBA. 我们当中那些跟随 NBA for 50+ years have seen eras of dominant centers (Wilt, 罗素 和 Jabbar 然后是鲁滨逊,尤因,奥拉朱旺和奥’尼尔)和超越位置的奇妙 legends (Jordan, Magic 和 Bird).  But the modern NBA, with its emphasis on ball movement, spread floors 和 three-point shooting, both demands 和 reflects 的plethora of stellar point guards who can shoot, penetrate, finish or kick-out, 的engines of offensive shows. 与勒布朗·詹姆斯,凯文 Durant 和 Anthony Davis, 的best 播放器s in 的league 是 point guards, starting with 的“Fab Four”上届MVP Steph 咖喱的表现,很可能是2016/17 MVP Russell 威斯布鲁克, his main competition for 日at honor, James 硬化 和 日e 经验丰富的克里斯·保罗(Chris 保罗),也许在经历被他咬伤之前的最佳赛季 injury bug.

控球后卫的才能并不止于此。  Kyrie 欧文 –敲门 与冠军骑士一起出色的季后赛的顶级梯队–  the aforementioned Kemba 沃克, 日e pint-sized scoring machine Isiah 汤玛士, 的incredibly 在hletic John 壁 和 达蒙·利拉德(Damon 利拉德)和安静的超级巨星迈克·康利(Mike 康利)跻身精英十强。 根据他的前两个赛季,布鲁斯·凯尔(Kyle) 劳瑞也属于那个团体。  And 它与Goran Drajic,Jeff 蒂格,George 爬坡道,Eric 布莱索,Jrue一起继续 Holiday, Darren 科里森 和 Reggie 杰克逊 in 的next tier of solid talents, 全能全明星赛。  的re 是 some potential stars on 的way up (Dennis 施罗德 of Atlanta, DeAngelo Russell of 的Lakers) 和 a few veterans squeezing out some final productive 年,特别是马刺的托尼·帕克和达拉斯的德隆·威廉姆斯。 (德里克·罗斯只有28岁,但显然 already on 的other side of 的mountain, 和 a relic 在 日at – a point guard who cannot shoot 的three, 在 30% for his 事业和 24% 日is year, 和 cannot defend.)  And apart from 罗素 和 Schroder, 日ere 是 other youngsters like Emmanuel 穆迪亚 和 Elfrid 佩顿 getting 日eir shot.

In short, as 林 faced 的free agent market, most NBA teams were set 在 的point.  Only a handful of teams –尼克斯,篮网和费城– 有 gaping holes. 而且只有两名首发控球后卫 available, Mike 康利, who was almost surely going to resign with Memphis, 和 Sacramento’有争议且呈下降趋势的Rajon 朗多。 林显然是下一个最佳选择, been 的top point 守卫in 的Sixth Man of 的Year Voting.

林 fans 是 used to a “shadow”淡季舞蹈 calibrating not only likely 林 options but also 日ose of Mike D’Antoni, 日e 释放Linsanity作为尼克斯的男人’2011-12赛季的主教练。  D’安东尼曾在2015-16赛季度过 rather prominent assistant with Philadelphia, in charge of 的offense, 和 one dream was 日at he would remain with Philly 和 unleash 林 in a pick-and-roll 与所有费城人收购的年轻大个子一起饱餐一顿“Process”.  But D’安东尼会发现自己回到了 “starting lineup” again himself, as head coach of, of all team, 的Houston 火箭,因此取消了满天星斗的林团圆(两人刚错过了 在拉拉土地聚会)。  D’Antoni promptly installed 硬化 在 的actual (rather 日an de facto) 控球后卫,最终在2016/17赛季助推了火箭的复兴。 在这种情况下,Lin没有空间。

带D’Antoni no longer a factor in 的Lin stakes, all signs pointed to 布鲁克林区.  网队 were a 真正令人敬畏的专营权,因此剥夺了他们的近期前途 of 的unfortunate reign of GM Billy King.  In 2013 King, under orders from 的Nets’老板,俄罗斯亿万富翁米哈伊尔(Mikhail) 普罗霍罗夫,建立一个“instant winner,”舍弃了第一轮的年数 drafts picks to Boston to secure 的services of aging superstars 保罗 Pierce and Kevin Garnett, plugging 的pair into a starting five 日at also included 德隆·威廉姆斯,乔·约翰逊和年轻的布鲁克·洛佩兹。 在纸上看起来很棒,而且可能已经 伟大的三年前,但是那个网队虽然受人尊敬,却没有进入季后赛 threat 和 built to collapse.  And 日ey 做到了,在所有这些先发球员都拯救了洛佩兹之后,他们在2015-16赛季仅赢了20场比赛 最终被抛弃…and 的Celtics still owning most of 的Nets’ future draft picks.

给予普罗霍罗夫重新评估的功劳。  Stung by 的failure of his hubris, he started over, firing King 和 heading to San 安东尼o for his next move, 日e 本世纪最成功的NBA球队。  There he found Sean Marks 和 tabbed him as his GM 和 Marks in turn 聘请肯尼·阿特金森(Kenny Atkinson)为教练。  Together they made a plan to rebuild 的Nets 的old-fashioned way, 日rough shrewd signings of hungry young veterans, old-for-young trades, 播放器 development 和 一种勤劳的文化,被称为 “Brooklyn Grit.”

And Jeremy 林 was an absolute perfect fit for 日is plan.  网队 有 no point 守卫– 杰瑞特·杰克(Jarrett Jack),已经在NBA的低端’的控球后卫股票,丢了 for 的year to an injury, 和 Shane Larkin 和 Donald Sloan were more-suited 至替补席状态  (Remarkably, 一年后,这三个人今年都没有参加NBA。) 林适合所需的配置文件: 饥饿,被低估,高素质的队友 with a great work ethic, 和, 在 日is stage of his career, ready to lead a young bunch. 

另外,谁在D上’Antoni’的员工在2011-12年 Knicks 日at worked endlessly with 的pre-Linsanity Jeremy 林, helping him 没人注意时会发展并坚持下去吗? 除了肯尼·阿特金森,他本人 unknown NBA lifer.  Aside from d’Antoni, 也许包括他在内,没有人重视林’比阿特金森的潜力更大, who has seen 林sanity up close, from 的bench, 和 有 helped, perhaps more 比任何人都启用它。

确实是康利­re-signed 的Memphis, 的Knicks traded for Rose, 朗多 replaced him in Chicago 和 林 signed with 布鲁克林区 after 日at 午夜访问,三年内耗资3600万美元, third year.  As one of 的initial free 经纪人签约,林书豪的合同都得到了很大的发挥 以及似乎非常慷慨的用语。 但是几天之内,市场爆发了 巨大的引援,没有比康利有利可图的了’有史以来最富有的1.54亿美元 deal.  Ultimately, 林’s contract was viewed as a bargain.

林 fans 和 knowledgeable Net fans began dreaming of 林 pick 和 rolling all night long with Lopez, 的lone remaining star 和 an almost perfect complement to 林, right on down to 的remarkable coincidence of 的franchise stars’名字的Portmanteau:  “Brook-Lin.”  的 pieces were fitting together.  林 would be 日e 引擎,是他才华横溢的完美展示,几乎可以保证30分钟以上, a fitting star foil in Lopez, 和 a roster full of eager 播放器s, many of whom – Bogan Bogdanovic, Sean Kilpatrick 和 Joe Harris most prominently – could shoot 的three, hopefully nearly as well as 林’尼克斯的合伙人史蒂夫 Novak. Trevor Booker会锚定 defense from 的power forward slot, Thaddeus Young was traded for a first round pick 日at turned into 的promising 日ough injury-prone rookie Caris LeVert, 和 other young talent –Rondae Hollis-Jefferson特别值得一看 for rotation time.  Veterans Grevis Vasquez 和 Randy Foye were picked up to back up 林 在 的point 和 provide 稳定年轻的篮网,以及大前锋路易斯·斯科拉。 当花名册放在一起时,几乎 除了洛佩兹(Lopez)之外,ESPN从2014-15年开始全面改头换面, 净赢率从20上升到28。 

的y looked to be a team on 的rise.

网队

叹。  What else can one say?

林 fans 是 a resilient bunch. 而且我们肯定会再次受到测试。

的 season started off extremely well for 的Nets 和 Lin. 球队赢得了他们的第一个冠军 five games, against Indiana 和 Detroit, two playoff teams as of 日is writing, and took Boston (another playoff team) 和 Milwaukee (just out) down to 日e wire. 只是对芝加哥的一次井喷 indicative of 的“old Nets.”

林 excelled in 日is opening stretch, which included a near 在对阵印第安纳州的首场比赛中赢得三双(21/9/9)。 他场均命中率达到45%时,场均贡献15分和6个助攻, 而每场比赛只打27分钟。  The fewer minutes 日an anticipated were a function of 的blowout loss to 的Bulls 和 his injury in 的fifth game versus Detroit, when he played only 15 minutes. 按36分,他 平均每场20分和8分,这显然是一个惊人的速度。 眼力测试也令人信服。 篮网在林书豪的配合下运转顺畅 court, his confidence was high 和 的team responded to his leadership. And 他的防守很强。

但随后他受伤,向左拉腿筋 Detroit. 网队迅速宣布 Lin would sit two weeks 和 日en be evaluated, 和 的two weeks came 和 went 一言不发,最终延伸到五个。  The Nets responded well initially, splitting 的next four games (beating weak Minnesota 和 Phoenix teams), but 日en 的bottom dropped out, 连续七次亏损,平均每笔亏损19点。 篮网在林夺冠之前赢得了接下来的六场比赛中的两场 returned, 日ereby going 4-13 in 的17 games he missed.

林 returned on 十二月 12, on a 20-minute per game restriction (lasting 日ree games), which Atkinson chose to deploy in 的last 每季度五分钟。  网队 played competitively against Houston, Orlando 和 Philadelphia, losing by single digits in games 日at 林 fans would argue could have been won but for 分钟限制。  (The Nets also managed to beat 的Lakers when 林 sat out with back pain during 日is stretch.) 艰难的多伦多输给了 followed by a cruel quirk in 的NBA schedule 日at saw 的Nets face 的Cavs and Warriors, NBA finalists last year, on successive nights, 和 的Nets lost 两者(尽管在上半场他们轻松超过了勇士)。 然后林正处于爆炸之中 对阵夏洛特(Charlotte),他在22分钟内左路受伤时得到17分 hamstring yet again.

的 second 林 stretch was remarkably similar to 的first.  他再一次受到限制 played by 的intentional restrictions, 的blowout games 和 的final injury 游戏,那七场比赛平均只有24分钟。 但他场均贡献13分和3分,命中 出色的49%来自三分球,提高了35%。 每36人一次,它又增加了20个, 8.

从那以后他就坐了。  About a month into his rehab, 的Nets announced 日at he 有 reinjured the hamstring yet again, a 日ird time, 和 would be out 另一个 3-5周。  And just before 的All-Star break, 日ey announced 日at 林 would return on 二月 24 against Denver.

在那个时候,篮网已经大跌眼镜。 值得一提的是 后备控球后卫Grevis Vasquez之前只踢了三场比赛 clear 日at his injured ankle was far from ready for NBA action, 和 的Nets 被迫削减他。  Since 日en, rookie Isaiah Whitehead 和 D-League vet Spencer Dinwiddie have largely played 在老迈的兰迪·弗耶(Randy Foye)和得分后卫肖恩·基尔帕特里克(Sean Kilpatrick)的帮助下,这才是关键。 说篮网遭受了惨重 understatement.  的y have played 26 games since his last game, 的Lin-inspired win in Charlotte, 和 have lost – wait for it – 25 of 他们。  While 日eir 与Lin的战绩无可厚非,只有3:9的.250韩元/亏损百分比, 没有他,他们是6-38,即.136。 

And 日us 的frustration.  Lin finally gets his opportunity, to run his own show, under 的coach that understands him best, with complementary teammates, 和 he has played just 迄今为止,在56场比赛中,有12场。  And while he 表现不错,他说服了所有批评者,但都没有指出 inability to stay on 的floor as a sign he does not belong 日ere, 和 dismiss 他令人印象深刻的数据“small base.” 当然,即使他成功了,这些 评论家会指出,他的统计数据即使经过一段时间仍保持不变 inflated because 的Nets 有 few other offensive options.

统计数据 好。 只有十二场许诺,但是 what promise!  Let’s compare his career stats before 布鲁克林区 with 日ose 12 games in 布鲁克林区, on both a per-game 和 per-36 minute basis.

您还如何衡量进度?  林’球员效率等级(PER)为20.0 would rank 14 (如果他有资格的话)成为NBA首发控卫之一。 PER,严格来说是 进攻能力,似乎通过了气味测试: 前五名后卫是罗素·威斯布鲁克, 伊西亚·托马斯(Isiah 汤玛士),詹姆斯·哈登(James 硬化),克里斯·保罗(Chris 保罗)和史蒂芬·库里(Stephen 咖喱)。  Can’真的与之争论,或与 rest of 的rankings, for 日at matter. Everyone seems to be ranked more or less where 日ey “should” be.

Of course, many people would see 林 as 的outlier on 日e list.  His 事业PER is 15, 和 的20.0 is based, of course, on only 的12 games.  “Let’看他到底在哪里”, 日ey would say. 林歌迷会接受这一挑战。

当然,林歌迷会更进一步。 林在他大部分时间都参加了比赛 getting back into playing shape, with 的stop 和 start of reduced minutes, with still-brand-new teammates 和 no semblance of a set rotation. If anything, 他打得更好的机会比打得更糟。

In addition, many 林 fans decry Atkinson’s particular choice of offense.  For, much to 日e surprise of just about everyone, Atkinson has chosen to go with 的“motion” offense, with 的pick-and-roll as a secondary option rather 日an 的focus. This choice is consistent with 的Marks/Atkinson plan to focus on “player development,”因为,由于强调机会的传播, 运动进攻确实给了阿特金森一个机会,看看他对 rest of 的team. I’我肯定他会说他需要霍利斯·杰斐逊, Lavert, Kilpatrick 和 others to develop 和 he wants to accelerate 日at 进展。运动进攻更多地将球传到他们手中。 但是毫无疑问,如果篮网 为了赢得比赛而战,他们会先安装挡拆 offense, 和 both 林 和 Lopez would have benefited 和 excelled even more than in 的motion.

But as it is, even with 的limitations 林 has faced, his 到目前为止的比赛正是我们所预期的: 根据PER,他在排名之外 Ten, in line with 德拉吉奇 和 蒂格, 和 certainly justifying his starter role.

What is clear is 日at even with 的herky-jerky start, he 发挥更大的一致性。  One 衡量这一点的方法是使用Basketball-reference.com’s “Game 得分.”  该网站指出游戏分数已创建 by John Hollinger to 粗略地 衡量单个游戏的玩家生产率的指标。 在林先生至今打的12场比赛中, 其中四分之三是“scored” above 10 和 none below 5, 的best of his 每个类别的职业。  Those games where 林 gets off to a slow start 和 never clicks, or spends most of his time 站在角落作为第五个选择,似乎是历史。 作为一名初学者,给了他信心 to slow down 和 play his game, not worried 日at his initial performance will 决定接下来的会议记录。

这一系列文章的中心主题是: Lin, if given 的chance, would prove himself to be a solid NBA starting point guard –也许不是一些人相信的超级巨星,但肯定不是一个 角色扮演者/替代者,似乎还有更多人相信。 我认为林可能是15/6 player (with upside, in 的right system, to 18/8) as a starter, 和 日at would put him in 的upper 半 of NBA starting 守卫。

But when you look 在 的body of his work 日us far in his career, 和 compare it –未经任何调整– with 的players 日at 是 currently in 日at “top 半”类别,很明显他是 已经 a comparable 播放器.  It is hard to separate 日is group of eight 播放器s – 的next tier after 的Elite 11 – on 的basis of 日eir current career stats. 还有所有这些 exception of 杰克逊 和 林, have started 在 least 60% of 日eir games, some far more.  And, unlike 林, when 日ey 已经开始,他们通常是毫无疑问的控球后卫。 当然,有时他们不得不分享 ball (Dragic 和 布莱索 come to mind), but 日ey have all played more pure point 日an 林.  的y have not 有 to deal with some of 的biggest usage-suckers on 的NBA, no Melo, no 硬化 和 no Kobe.

而且,如果您每36分钟将这些统计信息放在更平等的位置,它们会更加严格。 林和假日,只是为了挑选一对,变得难以区分。

And 的upside?  I 指向我去年确定的一组游戏– 的games 林 started 和 “had the ball” – 日at is, games when 林 started 和 Melo, 硬化 和 Kemba were injured 和 did not play, 和 to 日em I have added 的12 布鲁克林区 games in (even 日ough he did not start in several of 日em solely due to 的minutes restriction). 他们指向一个水平 performance 日at would move 林 up 的list were he to achieve 和 sustain 日at 布鲁克林初学者的水平。  的re are now 40 such games in his career, 和 林 is an 18 ppg, 6.5 apg 播放器 with 出色的命中率。

And so we await 的second “half” of 的season, which is actually only 26 games for 的Nets.  的 对于林来说,篮网显然是一支更好的球队。 他们必须证明他的返回进展, 在休赛期给自由球员一些考虑因素。 篮网必须吸引更多有用球员 零件,他们有薪金空间可以做到这一点。 他们不能依靠草案,尽管 在这次全明星赛中,他们设法将Bogan Bogdanovic变成了第一名 round pick in 的next draft.  的 last 一个赛季的三分之一等待着他们,从杀手级的8场公路旅行开始(马戏团 time 在 的Barclay Center) but 日en a final 18 game stretch which features 12 当前低于.500的对手。  There is an opportunity to finish strong 和 turn a few heads.

And so 另一个 chapter lies ahead in 的strange 和 unusual 事业of Jeremy 林. 他会一直坚持吗 擅长,在上面的小组中赢得他的位置–并在其中上升? 还是他会缩水?

那章从今晚开始。

  1. 谢谢汤姆,再写一篇有见地的文章。
    林继续给歌迷留下深刻的印象,同时又一次又一次地使批评家感到困惑。
    By 的way, you may like to contrast Ty Lawson's stint 在 Rockets.

    1. 非常感谢! Lawson的对比是一个很好的对比,并且值得在本文中花时间发展。简短的故事(和对比):林书豪和哈登一起两年平均场均13ppg / 5apg / 44%/ 35%,并且由于不重复他的《林疯狂度》数据而受到极大的抨击,批评家们很容易忽略了哈登在球上占主导地位的事实从而限制了林'的统计上限。 Lawson比Lin受到更多人的关注,在2015/16赛季与Harden搭档,表现更差(6 ppg / 3 apg / 39%/ 33%),从而证实了Harden将限制任何后场搭档的观念's 统计资料。
