08:34 AM ET 10.14 | More than six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus, not exactly a catastrophic injury by any stretch, Jeremy Lin continues to cite problems with his left knee for his early struggles with the Rockets. "My speed and my explosiveness and my agility (are not) there yet," Lin said the other day. So it was hardly ideal circumstances when the ex-Knick made his Houston debut against the Thunder's Russell Westbrook. even if Lin had two completely healthy knees, that's a mismatch, going up against one of the NBA's top athletes. Predictably, in his first action since injuring his knee last March against Detroit at the Garden, it got ugly in a hurry. Lin made only one shot and couldn't stay with the fleet Westbrook, who went for 19 points in 16 first-half minutes. While some Rockets coaches have confided that Lin needs to work harder to improve his play, he points to his knee as the chief problem.

Hey all you Jeremy Love lovers, "this is just the beginning. Houston got scammed, or quite frankly, they scammed themselves wit da Jeremy Love contract. The Love Factor dictates the he is a fraud, only you Rocketeers couldn't see. You're not the only ones, you had the Jeremy Love contingency as well, yeah, ya know the ones who told us how the Knicks were fools for not keeping this up and coming Superstar..."Lostwill" and a whole host of other illusioned ones. Apple is spittin da 411 on da "Love Factor"!
