It could happen but if he is let go it's because of the luxury tax not basketball reasons. I would love to see the Knicks keep Lin and really screw the rockets. I mean it would kill their season.
    I would love if Gruny kept Lin. Linsanity was the best story for the NY Knicks in years. Just don't see it happening, if they were going to keep Lin they would gotten a SG instead of Ray and Felton himself said someone told him the Lin deal was off.

    Idk about what Felton said but I do think Felton might be the best available player who was willing to take what the Knicks had to offer. I mean it foye is cool but is he really gonna outplay JR and Shump in the end? And the guys who can outplay JR and Shump want more than the mini MLE. Felton on the other hand will get his minutes more and more over the next 3 years as Kidd grows older. Also he loved it in NY that trade severly hurt his career.

    No sir! I am not one of those who had bytched about their contracts. The difference is Melo and Stat's contracts count against the cap and Lin's doesnt.

    Kill any flexibility? What flexibility are you talking about beside Dolan dolling out more dough??

    Lin's contract has ZERO affect on our cap, now or 3 years later!
    Lin's deal does have an effect on our cap after this year his balloon salary in year 3 might essentially effect us from making any major moves as all we would have is this 3mil mle and draft picks or lack there of

    I'm using a cell phone right now but from my understanding if we match there is no way we can compete outside of this year as our ability to effectively add role players will be shot, what if Lin is not the answer at PG and he flops, then we have a huge deal deep in the luxury tax and no room to grow


    Felton, Kidd and Prigioni should get the job done, if we maintain Lin I'll be fine with that but realistically its a big risk

    I didn't create this video, but we cant say this wasn't a good memory as a knicks fan.

    I know I personally would have kept Felton over Billups in that traed for Melo, he was the piece I thought didn't need to go.

    Default Lin, Kidd, or Felton Starting PG?

    This is assuming Lin gets resigned anyways. I still believe the knicks when they say they would sign Lin up to 1bill.

    I say Lin keeps the starting Gig in the beginning. We see how chemistry works throughout the season

    Kidd should see more time at Sg and Felton can get 15-20 off the bench at whatever gaurd spot (hes a bit short @ 6ft for a SG)

    I would be happy with this rotation

    Lin, Felton, Kidd, Pablo
    JR Kidd, or Kidd JR, Lin at times
    Melo, Novak, James White, JR
    Amare, Thomas, Melo, Novak
    Chandler, Camby, Parakhouski (maybe)

    When Shumps back

    Lin, Felton, Kidd, Pablo
    Shump, JR, Kidd
    Melo, Novak, JR (White may not be needed)
    Amare, Thomas, Melo, Novak
    Chandler, Camby, Parakhouski (maybe)

    TommyBeer: Jared Jeffries, on ESPN radio this morning, say he believes the #Knicks will NOT match, and Lin will play for the Rockets next season.
    TommyBeer: Per @NYPost_Berman - NY will NOT match Lin, in part b/c they felt Lin deceitfully shared in-house info w/ Houston: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    FWIW, I still think the Knicks are going to match that offer. As many posters have said, he's too valuable of an asset to just let go.

    Default LIN is the only COMBO guard on team

    Kidd and Felton are strictly PGs. Shumpert and Smith are strictly SGs (and/or SF).

    Jeremy Lin is the only player on the team who can play at a high level at BOTH PG and SG.

    That is why you match the offer sheet.

    Also, you can always make a trade in two years to alleviate the tax penalty.

    Default Read my other thread

    Lin was a SG in college.

    He is the true combo guard, not Felton and not Shumpert.

    The Knicks really are turning into a retirement home for old NBA players looking to supplement their retirement incomes. If we get him we have to be the oldest team in the NBA.

    Default My history on this forum

    I also predicted the Billups amnesty for Chandler on this forum BEFORE it happened. Look it up.

    I rarely post and I keep it simple, clear, and to-the-point.

    I believe my posts may be read by Knicks executives (so there).

    Can everyone CHILL out for a few minutes...

    Can we look at this from the Knicks side. Why would you not resign a young money generating icon. A team who in 3 years will be in wheelchairs, giving up their young youthful PG. It makes no sense even for the Knicks.

    Except, maybe they have a reason.

    The Knicks were bitter because they told Lin immediately the club would match the original offer and Lin apparently shared the information with the Rockets. Lin and Houston then plotted to redo it.
    Lin secretly flew into Las Vegas without informing the Knicks to renegotiate the contract and sign it.


    Read more: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    As we have good evidence that Lin did not want to be a Knick, through bitchblood or whatever the reason LIN decided not to be a Knick, as you can see the Knicks were going to match but Lin said "F*ck them" and ampted the offer up so we wouldn't match. He wants nothing to do with winning or Melo.

    So please everyone stop blaming the Knicks FULLY because its also in part due to the actions of

    bye bye OSh*t! Felton is a true PG, and insurance. he played well for the Knicks and it's great to have him back, he helped STAT shine and god knows we need that more than anything. to get him in a S&T is a great move, IMHO. now chill.
