    I'm not the biggest Lin fan and think that "Linsanity" was wayyyy overhyped. 25mil in 3 years is too crazy for an unproven talent. If he performed well for a full 82 game season, why not. But, coupled with the knee injury toward the end of the year, that contract is too much from a pure basketball standpoint.

    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.



    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.
    This is what disappoints me the most of this entire situation. Lin got his name when Glen Grunwald, Mike D'Antoni & the Knicks organization gave him a shot when all other teams in the NBA gave up on him & relegated him to D-League status. Of course he deserves credit as well he earned that name with how great he played, i'm not disparaging any of that. But now he goes & pulls this back ally stuff on the Knicks by working out a new poison pill offer sheet after the original offer was going to be matched by the Knicks. I would have had a lot more respect if he had been upfront with the Knicks & told them of the situation to begin with & said he didn't want to remain on the team if that indeed is how he was feeling (no one knows for sure what his motivation was, it could be the money, it could be other reasons). Whatever the case, I think he would have been much better off staying with the Knicks, for both his own marketing value & his own personal development being able to play on a contending team & learning under Jason Kidd. I hope for his sake this decision doesn't come back to haunt him. Sometimes money isn't the end all & be all to make a decision right for yourself or your family.

    Yeah nah I mean I hear you but WTF did they give Kidd that Mini MLE? That's what really bugs me. If you know you had a limit to what you would match then make the smart move. Go after Felton and get someone young who could be a long term asset. Don't sign an old as f*ck PG an talk about him imparting wisdom. How many old PG's have to break down during the playoffs for that lesson to sink in?

    I agree the contract is a bit much, but its only for 3 years. He is one of the rising PG's in the league and will ONLY get better as he plays more and more. He has the potential to become an allstar one day.

    Instead we decide to bring back a DECLINING felton and dinosaur jason kidd. So basically we are dealing away ALL of our young talent like Jeffries, Lin and Landry for old players like Kidd, Felton and Kurt fricking thomas.

    Its not even like adding these players would improve the team. In fact, we are probably in a worse position than before.

    At the end of the day though its all about melo chucking up 25 shots and putting in a "heroic" performance only for us to be ousted in the first round.

    We have NO clue how to build for the future.

    Don't understand why we wouldn't want to keep Lin. If anything he will only get better and we've already let Landry and Jared go...with Novak probably soon to follow.
