    Default Should the Knicks Sign Lin / Match Houston?

    OK, it seems the Knicks Online camp is divided on whether the Knicks should
    sign JLin and match Houston's offer, or let Linsanity walk.

    this here poll is for all KO members to voice their opinion on the issue,
    once and for all.

    yea bro its easy to make a poll...epic fail

    I choose to match the offer.

    You are paying a very good PG that put the team on his back when Melo and Amare were injured and played remarkable only 5 mil a year for the first two years...then 9 mil in years 3 and 4....in 3 or 4 years he should be worth 9 mil

    the 4th year is a team option so the rockets helped the knicks in a way, the contract is not that bad

    We should resign Lin without a doubt

    You match the offer, because he is a PG who is a hard worker and willing to learn.

    There's the poll! Nice thread CoolC. That 3rd option is another CCC - CoolClyde Classic.

    1 million percent agreed.

    To add to that, he's played with these players and knows their tendencies. Which, as the PG of this team that can now truly vie for the EC crown, is pivotal beyond recall.

    He knows the coaches' M.O.

    He plays decent D and can only improve as Chandler talks him through it.

    He now has Kidd coming in for the ultimate tutelage from one generation of PGs to the next. Again, adding to that defensive learning curve, never mind the offense.

    His injury has been blown WAY out of proportion.

    Dolan won't even sneeze at the luxury tax. As if that pompous little pop off is going to have another billionaire outbid him in the Lin stakes.

    It's a Lin Lin.

    We already anticipated the amount for his first and second year. I can only assume he'd be even better the third and fourth year. So the question is, does he worth what Houston is paying him for the 3rd and 4th year? I'd like to think it's a YES!

    Lin has that rare ability to singlehandedly get wins for a team...... That alone is worth the contract and then some.........

    Lin does four things as well as any starting PG in the league, defense (only Chalmers, and maybe Teague are better), breaking down the defense with the dribble (only Rondo, Westbrook, Paul, Rose, and maybe Irving are better), seeing the floor (only Nash, Rondo, and maybe Rubio are better), and clutch play (only Chris Paul had a better 4th qtr PER last season).

    Lin's only weaknesses are shooting from the field, turnovers, picking up the dribble in traffic, and taking unnecessary fouls. All will likely improve.

    good points...Lin's clutch ability makes him worth a big contract

    LOL the guy played 25 games.

    I am as big a Lin fan as the next person, but stop touting him in the Top 3 and 4 when we've yet to see even a 1/3rd of a full NBA season from him.

    It's ridiculous.
