    real knicks fan can love/hate the decision but at the end of the day is still a Knicks fan.
    How about sitting out of the playoffs vs. the HEAT so as not to hurt your market value so you can take the money and RUN???(still on the high horse).

    ...the cause of suffering is our clinging or grasping from the mental forces of greed & possessiveness,
    of hatred & aggression, and of ignorance & delusion. And this clinging or grasping must be let go of.
    The cause of most human suffering on the earth right now, is in our hands. Individually we grasp
    at how we think it should be; we don't want things to change. Or we do want them to
    change. We don't want to grow old and we don't want to lose certain things. We don't
    want certain things to happen the way they do. So when you're suffering, see where
    there is attachment, where there is grasping, clinging.

    To unclench the fist of clinging doesn't mean that we don't respond to the world,
    that we don't try to help. But we can let go of our clinging to an outcome--
    deep down the cause of suffering is this gut level grasping of how it should be.
    The more we cling, the more we suffer.

    Jeremy Lin is gone... just let go.

    pretty much everyone and their mother told him to sit out the playoffs and now you want to use that as an excuse. that statement is such weaksauce and you using it as an argument pretty much sums up your bias towards lin.

    why don't you blame melo for being greedy making the Knicks trade their whole team when he could've signed as a FA at the end of the season or why he came into the season so out of shape. (FYI: I don't care, it's for argument purposes)

    im just ready to see the knicks play.

    ?


    my post wasn't directed at you, you never posted anything significant or noticable for me to stop scrolling, I simply was stating my lack of interest in Lin.

    I was probably one of the biggest Lin supporters, now he's an overpaid media hype job; worst contract in the NBA behind Humphries.

I think real Knicks fans should be mad at Jeremy for taking the money and running.
    Then i would never let you negotiate a contract for me ever, because I would be severely underpaid.
    Thats not negotiating when you leak what your going to do and then back out of it once you realize that he has assessed value on the open market. Thats just putting the cart before the horse. They wanted to short change his contract, he gotta better deal end of story. Its not like Dolan is so broke he couldn't match.
    Obviously there was no contingency plan on what they should do if Lin was offered a poison pill contract, and Dolan felt "betrayed" whatever the hell that means in business

    And you have to admit you type ignorant sh*t in here. Don't act like this is something new. I'm not re-inventing the wheel here. Its been pointed out to you by several posters on more than one occasion.

    Yeah I agree he should of definitely ran out there and blew out the rest of his knee so that "true knick fans" don't have to worry about the media hype that is lin. And then he could just get a job on wall-street because you know he graduated from harvard, hell be alright

    He wasn't injured at all but he knew his market value went down a bit by getting isolated and schooled by deron and didn't want a repeat to go down. He can't play a lick of D. It was a bitch move. But Glenn made a bitch move hiding from Houston.

    Uhhh wrong, wrong and wrong. Actually, what Dolan did is EXACTLY how you negotiate. It starts with a figure in your mind. Dolan already knows what he is willing to pay for said asset. I don't want to hear about t-shirt sales and crap like that. Guys like Dolan aren't just "trust-fund" babies as has been thrown around this board. He is an expert at assessing value. So he told J Lin to go get his number. Perfect because Dolan does not want to overpay. Lin's mistake was going back and getting the SECOND number. Jeremy OVERPLAYED HIS HAND. Dolan wasn't going to pay a one hit wonder 15 million in the 3rd year that in real money would have cost him 40 plus million. And the contigency plan was obviously bringing Felton back and signing Brewer today at a fraction of the cost. Hello. Lastly, I really don't care what 98% of the posters on KO.COM think. I told you guys Lin wasn't going to be back because point guards are a dime a dozen and aren't required to win championships and you guys laughed at me. Who is laughing NOW???? ME. Lastly, I negotiate big-ticket items for a living everyday for the last 10 years and I am pretty good at it. So if you lost the "tude", I could probably negotiate you a pretty fair pay RAISE. My normal fee is 20%, but for you I would settle for 10% just to help a "sista" out. Some of us do wear shirts and ties to work you know
