Lin's got game -- and room to improve
By Ian Begley
There's an Eastern Conference scout who, like the rest of the sports world, has been "completely caught up" in the Jeremy Lin story over the past four weeks.
"It's the perfect storm. It's the perfect system for him and he's the perfect person for it," the scout said.
Of course, it's not all perfect for Lin, despite the New York Knicks' 9-4 record in games Lin has started.
According to the scout, weaknesses have emerged in Lin's game over the past month -- weaknesses that opponents will key on until he forces them to do differently. His ability to correct those flaws is key for a Knicks team hoping to make a deep postseason run.
