Kevin Ding: Why Jeremy Lin Has Been Such a Bad Fit with the Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers brought in point guard Jeremy Lin this season to take over for the injured Steve Nash, produce on offense and take some of the scoring load off Kobe Bryant.

Lin hasn't been an answer on offense, was never a reliable defender and, due to his recent struggles, has not proved to be of much use to coach Byron Scott, who took Lin out of the starting lineup.

Were expectations too high for Linsanity? Why has Lin struggled so mightily in Los Angeles this season? Is Lin just a one-year rental for the Lakers, or are they considering holding on to him long term?

Find out as Bleacher Report Senior NBA Writer Kevin Ding explains why Lin hasn't produced for the Lakers and what his future will be in Los Angeles in the video above.
