Let him walk
Resign him and keep him long term
Resign him and trade him January 2013 with Amare
I just thought if we want to talk about Lin, we should discuss, at least some of it, in this thread.
Here's what I want to discuss:
Can Lin bring us a title? He is, to many people, just an average PG, or a B- type PG.
I'd say YES! He can bring us a title. Why?
You can't just look at numbers. Kobe shot 3 for 20 last night against the Utah Jazz but he's still a star.
Lin is capable of scoring more, but he'd rather sacrifice his numbers to get a team win. He once said the reason he didn't like D-League was becasue people there only cared about numbers/statistics. He's definitely got the agressiveness needed to fight for the title. And it will happen. Mark my word.
My thinking is that no matter how well Jeremy Lin plays, if the rest of the team doesn't play well, then there is no title. If he plays lousy, and the rest of the team plays well, who knows for sure as it only takes one extra point to win a game.
It has to be a group effort.
Glad that Woodson is bringing the accountability hammer to the court.
Jeremy Lin went to the bench midway through the third quarter on Wednesday with a terrible stat line: 1-for-11 from the field, two points, two assists and a turnover.
One veteran Knick had a simple message for him as he sat down.
"This is when you have to prove that everything you've done up to this point is legit, [prove] what you're made of," Jared Jeffries told Lin.
Consider the point proven.

Any good player might get cold hands sometimes. We just need to keep supporting them! And have faith in them!
I don't know if I'm seeing right, or if this IS a problem,
but I notice that Jeremy plays better under pressure.
I also notice that he plays better when he's the only point
guard for the night. Anyone else?
I noticed Lin was only given - impact minutes for maybe 20? It seemed like Baron Davis got his wish and/or the Coach Woodson got his chance to find out how the offense and defense would play with the impact minutes largely given to Baron Davis.
One thing I did notice in the recent games is that Lin had not handled the ball as much as before. Maybe the lack of touches had thrown Lin off his game but he did cut down on his TOs lately with less burden of handling the point all by himself.
