During the NBA season of 2012-2013, Super Star Jeremy Lin was signed as starting point-guard for the Houston Rockets. It was his first season with the Rockets, along with Super Star, James Harden and averaged 13.4 points and 2.9 turnovers per game. With the addition of Dwight Howard, the team will now have 3 Super Stars to build around; Dwight Howard, James Harden and Jeremy Lin. However, it is predictable that Howard will be dominating the post, leaving open opportunities for shooters; therefore, it is best for Coach McHale to surround his Super Stars with players who can both limit their number of turnovers and are capable of knocking down three point shots. The Rockets have a championship roster but without a solid point-guard, the offense will not be as effective. Lin’s habitual turnovers became a drag for the team, they were forced to deal with the mistakes and hope for improvement but they could only take so much. Someone needed to step up and someone did; it was time for change. Second-string Patrick Beverley proved he could elevate the game and lead the offense while the subbing of injuries for Lin. Not only was Beverley able to lead the offense, but his statistics also show he was better in steals, blocks, turnovers, and better shooting percentage. Coach McHale loves for “The Beard” (James Harden) to take over; he makes things happen. If you haven’t noticed, for every possession Harden holds the ball for at least half the shot clock, leaving his teammates in tough situations. He is the type of player who needs someone to be “clutch” during those crunch times and Lin is not the guy for the job. With five seconds left on the shot clock, both Howard and Harden will realize they will need the most consistent shooters on the court with them. Houston wants Patrick Beverley, he has proved himself to be more effective with less play time than Jeremy Lin. It is only a matter of time before Coach McHale realizes Beverley will be the foundation to his offense. Slowly but surely, Beverly is pushing to snatch that title.
