"We're making the playoffs," Lin said. "I don't care what anybody else tells me."
Going from worst to the playoffs may be a stretch, but Lin is confident -- particularly playing alongside new backcourt mate Russell, the former No. 2 overall pick, saying the new duo will do "serious damage" next season.
"I'm going to be at the 1, and then he'll be at the -- well, I'm not really sure to be honest. I'm pretty sure he would start at the 2. But it will be pretty interchangeable. When one of us is out of the game, the other person will most likely have the ball in their hands. It will probably be a little bit combo guard-esque, kind of like me and Kemba [Walker]."
