    answer me this:

    1) did the quick signing of felton show that we're unaware of the stretch provision?


    2) would the knicks still part with lin in a way to say "up yours, prick" for trying to leech every dollar out of us that he could?

    maybe they knew about it all along but theyre just dragging it out..

    felton lin and kidd can all play shooting guard and right now, JR is our only shooting guard until january when shump comes back. maybe they work Kidd and Lin a little into the SG rotation..but when shump comes back, who knows what will happen. i cant make a prediction on what will happen with lin because it still seems very foggy

    Are you certain it had nothing to do with the overall market being down?

    We aren't going to be using this stretch provision. No one wants to pay 5 million a year for a player who isn't even on your roster anymore for the next 3 years. This really changes nothing in the Lin decision imo.

    What Lin did with Houston should not have anything to do with it. Wasn't it a couple of days ago we saw that article on Lin being upset that the Knicks didn't make him an offer before Houston did and that "Lin needs to realize it's a business". Same goes for the Knicks except double, they cut and trade guys all the time after telling them you're in our plans, look at what they did to Billups.

    Knicks Now Seem Set on Letting Lin Go

    The Knicks plan to cut ties with Jeremy Lin on Tuesday night, according to a person briefed on the decision, ending a brief, spectacular and now bittersweet love affair between the 23-year-old point guard and his adoring fan base. Lin will play next season for the Houston Rockets, who signed him to a three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet that the Knicks have elected not to match.

    Lin will be a Rocket. Knicks deliberations over.

    I won't believe it until midnight.

    It's just mind blowing to me that they would let Lin walk.

    well this sucks.... somewhere the Nyets owner Provalone is licking his lips over all the casual basketball fans Dolan just gave him. I mean the Nyets roster sucks but they haven't traded away a fan favorite player either....

    Dude, if Lin walks, I don't know what to think.

    I think Dolan forced some pretty stupid moves over the years, culminating with the terrible Melo trade, but this takes his ineptitude to another level.

    Dolan has absolutely NO touch with reality. He's gotta be heavy on the prescription drugs or something worse. This is not a sane move, letting Lin walk.

    How the f*** do you let Lin walk? I can't wrap my mind around this.

    The Knicks fan base will be fine. All the bandwagon asian Linsanity fans will migrate to HOU and we'll have our core/loyal fan base at the forefront again.
