    Wonder if the whole "trade my best buddy for Nash who plays my spot" thing has gotten to him?

    That was a good opportunity to learn a thing or 2 going in to next season.

    Love to know what Lin's thinking right now.

    Without trying to fall too hard in to a generalization, I bet his family are pushing him to take the most that's offered to help fund China's rise to exterminate the white race and take over the world. Book it.

    Good keep Lin away from any basketball action until the season starts, wouldn't want him to suffer some kind of next injury, Anthony Davis already got injured and had to withdraw from team USA.

    This is clearly the agent keeping Lin's financial interests in mind (not worth the injury risk before the contract is signed).

    Here's the important conclusion to draw from this tho: Lin's contract won't be finished soon. Keep in mind the Olympics aren't for a month.

    Also, it seems pretty evident that we will have to overpay for him, since the contract will reflect not just his abilities on the court, but also his revenue value in merchandising, tickets, TV rights, etc. Bottom line is it seems like it will be a long, taxing process, and keeping him will be a luxury.

    Default Withdrawal

    There is always the risk of an injury that could substantially impact a potential $24M contract with the Knicks or perhaps a backloaded contract with the the Raptors approaching $40M. Then again, is he concerned that he will not look good in that very talented company?

    It is the safe thing to do, but also a little bit cowardly.

    With all this bullsh*t on his mind, no wonder he withdrew. he's gotta watch his back and get ready to pack his bags for Toronto.

    Lin's got a new agent who's going for the best money he can get. If Toronto loses out on Nash, especially to the Knicks, you can only assume that Canadian poison pill offer's going come along. mo money. mo money. Knicks trading Laundry Folds and friends for one of the NBA's best PG's, how's that make him feel? just when he thought he'd have a chance at being #1, the Knicks will throw Linsanity down the drain to get Nash for 1 year, maybe 2.

    more wait and see from the Knicks to see what the market offers Lin (and Novak.)
    wait and see if some player from Greece will ever make it over here.
    wait and see if Amare will be worth $20M/year compared to other players.
    wait and see if Dolan can blow up this team again.

    Highly unlikely, since his family is from Taiwan. It's far more likely that his family gets him the highest deal so that they can help protect Taiwan from the communists.

    In all seriousness, this is probably good news. We all know that Lin is working on his game like crazy since that's the kind of guy he is, so who cares about whether or not he plays international ball.

    It's good he's withdrawing, Select Team is a joke anyway. I don't see how he could benefit playing with bums like John Wall, whose ass he absolutely tore up, he got in that ass.

    It's better he rest instead of wasting time ****ing around on some team that no one cares about. Who cares about the Select Team? No one.

    Rest up Jeremy Lin and get that paper!
