    Default My answer to Linsanity in 3 words; sign and trade!

    I liked Lin this season, I thought he showed a lot of potential, but there is also this huge potential to over spend on him this summer and that is the last thing we need!

    This reminds me a lot of David Lee, at the minimum salary he looked amazing but a player losses value the second he signs his big contract!

    Lin was this season at league min, but full MLE is the very least he'll make and I don't see it man! Teams will pay for "Linsanity" and I think we should pass because we need wins more than hype right now.

    Look Linsanity will stimulate teams such as Golden State and Sac who are up agains 2 highly popular teams in Califonia right now! Linsanity helps that almost dead basketball market in Toronto! If Deron Williams bounces this off season it will give a moral victory to The Nets....but we need a player that is going to take us to The next level, popular or not!


    Now teams are going to try to backload his contract and throw in trade clauses to get us not to match, which ultimatley is as big a risk for them, so if we let it be known that we will hear trade propositions (which keeps teams from assuming that risk and us having to overpay or lose him for nothing) then it may be worth looking in to.

    Teams listed to be intersted

    Nets-can't see us making a deal with them because of how competive we are with one another, but they do have draft picks and King is not shy about trading away!

    A 2014 unprotected first round pick and Anthony Morrow

    Gives us some help with shooting, first round pick is good because we lose a pick every other year until 2016! But of course means we have to go hard w/ MLE to get a PG


    Golden State-Lin knows the coaching staff and they known him and want him back! They have Steph Curry, but my hunch is Mark Jackson wants a more cerebral PG (like himself). Lin,Thompsan,Jefferson,Lee, Bogut makes a very solid team!

    Straight up deal for Steph Curry

    Lights out shooter for Knicks at the PG position that would open the floor for us and can make passes, knock is he does not have Lin's strength and height and will not hit the boards and play w grit like Lin, yet Lin's shot is not even on the same planet!


    Toronto- The need excitement, period! Lin is a lateral move, but will put fans in the seat, they are also strapped for cash, not having to back load a contract and to still get Lin would be huge for them!

    Lin/Douglas for Calderon!

    How much will we spend to re-sign Lin? Isn't it a public information already? Like 5 million? And you're worried to death like that? You do know how much we pay Melo and Amare right?

    Tell you what, he's definitely worth the money. Every penny of it! Don't you worry about that!

    LOLz!

    Lin is not going anywhere.

    I think it's a red flag about your brain that you would want to get rid of Lin but you like an absolute MORON of a player in Melo.

    Lin prints cash money. You will see Melo move before Lin, that's the bottom line.

    And you know what? Lin is 50 times better than Melo OR AMAR'e at the game of BASKETBALL, the game that's played with 5 guys, as a team.

    The Knicks will never let Lin leave New York. Lin could play awful but he will still bring in Advertising dollars from companies interested in marketing to Asians.

    Lin only played regularly two months here and MSG received money from TV contracts to broadcast Knicks games overseas (China & Taiwan), Coke ads in Chinese at MSG, ads for Taiwan Tourism, boost in ticket sales, boost in MSG stock price, extra TNT/ESPN/ABC games added, money from Lin merchandise (Lin jersey was #2 best seller for entire NBA).

    Not bad for a player that sat on the bench for two months and played regularly for two months. Lin will never be traded or released for business reasons, and not for on court performance.

    Proves you know nothing. He got a lot of attention because he was playing well. Look at all the other Chinese players that were imported over here, that were mediocre, them fools didn't get the same treatment. Quit talking out of your ass. If Lin was playing like your comment, no one would give a ****. Smh.

    Posts wanting Lin gone never stop, do they? I wonder why? Are people really blind? The kid can play. When I read posts during the Linsanity games, everyone give praises and are happy, ecstatic. Do people really have this short memory?

    Anyway, it really doesn't matter whether Knicks keep Lin or not. It will be for the best. He can play really good. The fans love him not just in NY but worldwide. He has a lot of supporters. In fact, he has more supporters than the Knicks team itself. Ever wonder why every game he is in no matter where is like a home court crowd?

    Lin is a 4 year 13 million dollar player who is going to get paid more than that because of the hype he generates (that will die down quickly next year)

    Everyone thinks the full MLE is a discount for Lin because of a 30 game run, however after 30 games Channing Frye was considered a better draft pick than Deron Williams! If The Knicks had to sign him off those 30 games he'd still be making 10 million plus!


    So to answer your question about "what's my concern"....over payment!!!

    You just proved you know even less, fool.
    Jeremy Lin was not imported here, he was born in Los Angeles, CA. Lin is an American that speaks fluent English so his international marketability is far greater than those of players that have been "imported over here" and can't communicate without an interpreter. So you're comparing apples to oranges.

    Lin had an Asian following well before Linsanity. Here's a link to videos [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    During the 6 game Knicks losing streak, his Asian fans still got up early in the morning to watch live games even though Knicks were losing.
    Go check his facebook page, see what his fans and following post even when he plays awful.

    So Goknicks!, is that how mommy and daddy speak to you when they disagree with you..."Proves you know nothing. Quit talking out of your ass."
    I bet you're as charming in person as you are in online forums.

    Can't you see the possibility that he'll play well at all?
    What if he made it happen? Will you cheer for him then?

    Too early to give up on Lin now, lets see what he gives us in 12-13.

    All that writing without any reason, understanding, or fact for "3 words" that would make our Knicks organization GM Grunwald look like a worldwide imbecile. Grunwald name would be mention in every household as the " 3 word F....... ??? ".

    The past 6 seasons David Lee performance has been worth $12M per.
    Stephen Curry is a star combo-guard who need a PG in his lineup (Iverson & Snow).
    Caldron's past 4 season performance has been on par with TD performance (Caldron offense equal TD defense).

    Lin-Sanity has two important things in his favor:
    1) Lin co-exist with half of the starting-lineup, and all of the bench-players.
    2) Lin performance gives all his teammates energy going down the final stretch of a game.

    Stephen Curry would be the only one worth doing nonetheless I say keep Lin but can the fans stop over rating him he is good, not very good and not great but he can get there right now I'm hoping he comes back faster and more explosive as well as Melo, if they get on the same page oh boy they'd put us into the top 5 around the league let alone the East
