Resolution: Get a bionic hamstring


by Ben Nadeau


It goes without saying, but there were incredibly high hopes for the Jeremy Lin era in Brooklyn -- and, up until now, it's been a false start. Over his seven-year career, Lin has been a very healthy athlete, even playing in all 82 games during the 2012-2013 season. What's most unfortunate, however, is that the Nets border on a forever-burning dumpster fire without Lin on the court. 


Lin is not a world-beater, nor will he ever put up a line like Russell Westbrook's assault on the triple-double record books, but he is the most important cog the Nets have had in years, considering the dried husks of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Kevin Garnett that they hauled around in recent seasons. 


With the ball in Lin's hands, the Nets have moments of electric bliss, but Atkinson's right-hand man's left-leg hamstring has really thrown a wrench into the operation. While on the court, Lin's  three-point shooting has provided another element that Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie cannot provide yet -- without him, they're borderline hopeless at points over a 48-minute contest.


This season is wasted in terms of wins and losses, but the sooner he can return, fully healthy, the quicker the rest of the organization can evaluate the moving parts around him.


Get well soon, Jeremy.
