    Lets be real on this board and stop the bull ****
    Well, I have something to say about the numbers.
    I believe Lin could average more points if he wanted to. He's just too team-centered, or say win-centered. That's why his value is times and again under rated.

    After all, winning a title is our ultimate goal, right?

    That's a good point! Very good point. It's rude to point.

    Sounds good!

    Can't wait to have another high risk injury salary on the books!

    It's unfair to nitpick and select all of Curry's best stats against Lin's, sample size is small. With 2 years as a starter on the Knicks Lin should be putting up better stats than he is now. PPG, RPG may stay similar but his turnovers will be down and his FG% should improve and hopefully his assists creep up.

    Plus it's becoming pretty clear Curry is going to have a long term ankle injury.

    I'm not under rating him he's pretty over rated though to be honest and Stephen Curry is better than him so if we can't be real then I guess the argument I'm trying to make isn't getting through to you

    and who cares about off the court **** if anything I want less of a spot light keeps expectations down and allows our team to handle adversity better

    but to get my point clear I like Lin I just wish for once we as s fan base let a player grow rather than put them on an unreachable pedestal

    I mean future all star pg and mvp candidate no way unless the entire Asian race votes him in and fans could vote for mvp and it meant something

    Lin will be more than good for us if he keeps s little faster and fixes that dreaded left hand along with learning how to deal with ball pressure these are things I see either holding him back or making him a great pg

    1. The best way to do that is to KEEP the current lineup and not trade away and start again.

    2. Curry will be added to the Greg Oden/Brandon Roy injury list. He is already injury prone and is showing chronic ankle injury warning signs.

    I know that that's why I want to keep this team in tact but my argument is a healthy Curry is better than a healthy Lin I mean back in 2009 we were all hoping to get him right anyway I wanna keep Lin don't get me wrong just think Curry fits better

    A healthy Curry ........I think Eddie was healthier this season.....
    dude the guy has chronic ankle issues.......
    as for LIN in the games he played for the Knicks he look like he can more then handle our PG position......Since we know we are not getting a Deron Williams or Chris Paul...lets run with him and look to upgrade at the SG position and then use SHUMP to back up both

    While I basically agree with your point, New New York is right in that the Knicks tend to overpay their players. I am not fully sold on the Linsanity Cinderella story.

    If Lin's performances turn out to be Flip Murray-type fifteen minutes of fame, his marketing value -- let alone his value as a point guard might turn out to be very limited.
    While I think that sign and trade is a coward decision, only signing at a contract which would make moving Lin an option would be reasonable.

    it would be oxymoronic to trade the most marketable young player in the league.

    plus you don't trade a potential star player who hasn't played a full season.

    dumb-idiotic idea all the way..
    how the hell can you start a thread like this?


    and trade for Curry whose value went down all the way due to injury proneness?
    Even the dumbest GM can't come up with this idea,.

    Knicks fans were supposedly some of the smartest basketball fans, but online discussion forums prove otherwise

    If we do not overpay LIN I am sure will just end overpaying someone else...

    Linsanity is definitely bigger than Jeremy Lin, the player. You pay for both and there's no way around it.

    Personally, I think Curry is better than Lin but not by a whole lot (based on what i've seen so far).

    I wouldn't trade Lin right now. We can all agree that he has potential and you have to explore that. I understand the OP's concern about over-paying but he's going to get his $5 mil (max) unless he agrees to take less, which his agent won't allow him to do.

    Let's just hope the word "trade" in the CBA is ruled to also players picked up after being waved.

    Why has this thread last even this long?

    The three words used should have been......

    Can Not Happen.


    Lin cannot be signed and traded per CBA rules.

    Only if he signs an offer sheet first

    but then we'd have to max him out so 5mil the 1st year which means we'd be capped per CBA rules

    but I digress

    I really hate these type of threads. We've had one lockout shortened season hampered by injuries and a mid season coaching change and people are already calling to make changes left and right with the team. How about we pass our judgement till we actually have a normal season?

    I hate the Celtics but if there's one thing I respect about them it's the fact that they've been able to keep their core group of players together so they can learn each other's strengths/weaknesses and develop team chemistry. Rondo would not be the PG he is if the Boston front office signed, traded, and let go of players left and right.

    Keep as many of our guys as we can and our coach and let them work it out. In my opinion, the only changes to consider right now should be based off injuries.
