08:06 AM ET 10.16 | Rockets guard Jeremy Lin was given the night off Monday against the Mavericks -- an absence planned by coach Kevin McHale and not as a result of the guard's progress. [McHale spoke] with Lin after Sunday's game and again Monday morning about not letting his preseason struggles hurt his confidence. "We had planned on this already," McHale said. "This was his day off in his knee rehab, 28 days of October plan that we had to get him where we need to have him by the 31st. He's finding his way, as always happens when you haven't played in a long time," McHale said of Lin, who had not played since March prior to training camp. "He had surgery and took a long time off. He's just getting his confidence back, trying to get his mojo going which is very common."

Agree with McHale. Right now, it's just conditioning. Lin did not do great in the last pre-season game, but wasn't a disaster. This is what pre-season is for.

Exactly. Jgb summed it up. It could be a thread about tennis and it will turn into a Knicks bashing thread. It's ok. It comes with the territory of being the greatest city in the world. People want to be you but can't and so they look to exploit any weakness, real or perceived.(I figured I'd get the haters wound up by posting that over the top declaration)

Chicago is the greatest city in the world. And that's not bashing New York at all.

Somehow this will turn into a Knicks bash thread

Of course Dolan knew Lin is one season wonder like Curry so he didn't want to get raped twice by the same chick... that's why he let Lin walk. It's all about the Knicks baby...

Prague is actually better than both. Though I do love NYC and ChiTown.
