O/k, not saying Lin is CP, but I find the whole thing disturbing for the following thoughts I have:
1. Not about money, 100 MM on Stat proves that.
2. My gut tells me Melo did not want Lin owning the spotlight.
3. Knicks had options to get out before year 3 of the Lin deal hit their wallet.
4. Ask yourself this: If Steinbrenner was healthy and the Knick owner, with Lin falling into his lap so to speak, basketball & business wise, would Lin have left town with NOTHING in return?
No, I have no proof on the Melo statement, but I just have this gut feeling.
