    its all about Jim Dolan's spite and grudges coming before intelligent decisions - as usual .

    Lin could have been traded at least - for a decent draft pick if he didnt out competed Felton in training camp.

    Frustrating that we didn't get anything out of Lin. Grunwald was stupid for letting the market set Lin's price. He should have negotiated with Lin the second that front offices were allowed to talk to free agents. But what's done is done.

    I understand where you're coming from, but I don't exactly blame them. I just would have rather keep the asset, and maybe turn it into something else in a trade if need be. Maybe they felt their best bet to keep some semblance of the fan base on their side, was to let Lin walk to a team offering an absurd amount of money for 35 games, and cite reasons of "it's too expensive to keep him" -- as opposed to signing him, then having to deal with screams of "give him a chance!!!!!!" when it came time to trade him.

    I don't think Lin is terrible, but I don't think he's an All-star talent yet, if at all. I would have to see him operate in a good portion of an 82 game season, against terrible defenses, marginal defenses, and great defenses, all with advanced scouting, before I could even approach any sort of conclusion. It's just to early to truly know, and if the Rockets are betting $25M that he's that guy...more power to them.

    I can't completely bash the FO for not matching tho, whatever the reasons were.

    That's the one thing that I'll say was extremely foolish on the FO's part.

    Unless they never really intended to sign him but wanted to make it seem as if they did? So they went thru all of the motions, and when it came time to get a deal done, they let him test the market hoping a team would overpay for him? They announce they'll match any offer up to $1 billion, and when the offer goes up a bit, suddenly "it's too expensive."

    Is Grunwald that smart? Or am I reaching?

    I'm tired.

    Default Bad Move Knicks. Very BAD MOVE...

    Lin Gone? After rescuing a season in which we started 8-15. The Knicks were going absolutely NOWHERE. This kid brought the excitement back to the team. Not only excitement, he brought wins with him. I dont know the intricacies of this move. The internal reasons, but no matter what they are this is just plain idiotic.

    I'm sure Dolan has his (what he believes are valid) reasons, but this move reeks.

    I've been a Knick fan since 1970 and have always appreciated Dolan spending his coin to try to do better. But, he's listened to the wrong folks. Who advised him on this? We are further from a chip than we were at the end of last year.

    I'm extremely disappointed in this move.

    It was obviously an "emotion" thing.

    James Dolan clearly got extremely butthurt about the Lin/Rockets dealings.

    So much so that he would not even sign him to use him as an asset for CP3 or whoever in the long run.

    I'm fine with it. A turnover prone guard with no proven worth. Let the Rockets have him.

    If we get CP3 before the trade deadline, everyone is going to be kissing Dolan's ass. Could be just another Knick pipedream, but I guarantee the Clippers won't let him just walk for nothing this coming summer.

    LIN IS GONE, LET'S MOVE ON!!

    It feels like someone just told me my grandma died. Then told me she might make it. Finally putting a full page article in the paper saying she is officially dead. Which then goes on to regale me with wonderful stories of gingersnaps and picking out my favorite movie at blockbuster. Only to end with she is officially dead and not just messing with the Houston rockets.

    I don't think anyone is going to get it until he steps on the floor at msg and they treat him like Willis reed.

    Either way I think he's going to light up Felton in his return.

    I understand the disappointment, but I don't get why I keep seeing people associate Lin with the team's aspirations for a chip. Don't we need to see Lin against a myriad of defense, with advanced scouting, in an 82 game season, before we can truly gauge his talent?

    35 games isn't nearly enough.

    I would have liked to see him start next season as a Knick, and if it wasn't working, and there was a potential trade...ok, fine. I'm not 100% on board with letting an asset walk. But I can't see how Lin factors into a ring more-so than any other "don't screw it up" PG. He doesn't have free reign to do whatever, whenever, when STAT and Melo are out there, he would be a good PG on a really really good team -- not Linsanity.

    If the Knicks think they can get that production elsewhere, I can't complain. Now..if it doesn't work with Felton and Kidd...then all bets are off.
