McHale on why Rockets cut Jeremy Lin

No, I’m not talking about Pau Gasol and Nene, but the Jeremy Lin story continues to roar and it seems someone on the team is asked daily about why they cut the point guard out of Harvard on Christmas Eve, letting his talent be discovered in New York.

On Wednesday just before the Sixers game, McHale was asked about what he saw in Lin and why the cut, and being in a seemingly good mood, the Rockets coach gave some pretty open answers about it.
