    I think I make a lot of posts centered on other players and took your previous post as directly addressed to me - due to the fact that your post happened to appear after a series of mine in the Lin thread.

    Looking forward to seeing Shumpert have another career high today and the rest of the team play at the top of their game.



    Lets go Knicks!

    Shumpert has been adding some consistency to his game. He's our best perimeter defender by far. It will be interesting to see if he can continue to shoot well or whether he's having a first year Landry Fields syndrome. Either way we should win this. The Hawks have over exerted themselves this week. I'll leave the rest of this discussion for the game thread tonight. Good stuff.

This team is far bigger and far more important than one player. How many of you will actually stop supporting the Knicks if Lin leaves? Continuously posting about someone who is recording 14/6 is borderline spam. We win as a team, and we lose as a team.


    EDIT: I understand this is a Jeremy Lin thread, so can we at least contain the constant spamming on here.
    I'm confused. Isn't this a Knicks fan site? I agree that the New York
    Knicks are far bigger and more important than one player.

    But, aren't there fans everywhere, including this site, who appreciate
    and are fans of one player more than another? Why does it bother you if some of us post
    about one player? Do you criticize other people who post about other
    players? And, yes, I take your post as a criticism of Lin fans.

    I just don't understand why it should bother you so much? Are there
    rules I don't know about? If so, please, moderators let me know!

    AND, how is discussing a Knicks player SPAM???!!!

    Miracles do happen once in awhile. Look what happened to game 1 between Clippers vs Grizzlies. I watched it and didnt change my channel and still couldnt believe what happened. Down by 24 with less than 8 min in the 4th, they came back and won in front of a sellout Grizz crowd. If you dont call that a miracle, I dont know what is.

    Even if Lin comes back and plays on Sunday, he is doomed. The deck is heavily stacked against him. Might as well just kick back and enjoy the game from the sideline in his blue suit and tie.

    If Lin comes back and leads the Knicks to 4 straight win, we have to trade Melo, Amare and build around him.

    Only way Lin can lead us to 4 straight wins is to convince his alumnus Barack Obama to sell Florida back to Spain to reduce national deficit before game time. Knicks win by default and Heat become a FIBA team.

    Edit: Obama is a big fan of Linsanity and it just might work!

    Lin ruled himself out of G4, G5 (if we got there) also very unlikely. Next season, brothers, next season...

    Announcement OFFICIAL: Knicks don't match poison pill - Lin now a Rocket.

    The Knicks could pay as much as 35 million dollars in luxury tax if they match Houston 30 million dollars offer. I don't think Dolan would go for that.

    Check out this link from Forbes:

    You're talking about the same owner who ended up paying Larry Brown $40M for 1 terrible season of coaching in NY. The Knicks are not gonna let Lin go to the Rockets, trust. Especially after how they owned us in that terrible Tracy McGrady trade. Dolan is not gonna let Morey make a fool of him twice (well, hope not anyway). Lin brings in easily more than $35M worth of marketing value to the Knicks franchise, which more than covers those luxury tax penalties, IF we end up having to pay them. Once again, the Knicks can still search for opportunities to dump 1 of their big contracts after the 2014 season to solve that problem. No one thought the Hawks would be able to dump guys like Joe Johnson & Marvin Williams, that is until they just did this summer.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the Knicks are expected to "match any offer" for Jeremy Lin after missing out on free agent point guard Steve Nash Wednesday. Which means that even if the Mavs have a genuine interest in bringing Lin-sanity to Dallas, it's likely a moot point.
    Lin is reportedly in Houston meeting with the Rockets, but the Knicks have the right to match any offer sheet Lin signs because he's a restricted free agent.
    It was first reported by Marc Stein on Tuesday that the Mavs could have an interest in Lin after Deron Williams announced his intentions to stay with the Brooklyn Nets. In 35 games last year, Lin averaged 14.6 points, 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds with the Knicks.
