    Gonna miss the guy. I hope Madison Square Garden's stock drops by 5% tomorrow so Dolan's wallet hurts a bit more.
    I think this is the problem with all you LIN fans, Lin wasn't the only reason we made the playoffs.WTF do you mean Melo didn't help us win, did you even watch the APRIL games, when LIN was so called injured.The dude sat out on us, to get his payday.That showed me where his heart was at, but nobody gives melo any credit for trying to play through a Wrist and Groin injury most of the year(what a double standard some of you have).Peace LIN and all the B*tch *ss fans you brought with you, thank god it's over.

    LONG LIVE JEREMY LIN!!!

    May he drop many buckets for the Rox.

    Forest, I don't know what the Rox are doing but I am sure they are running circles around Dolan in the way they operate their franchise.

    I trust their moves a lot more than I do anything Dolan puts his fat fingers on.

    Long Live JEREMY LIN!!!!!! YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

    JEREMY LIN, you gave us the best Knicks memories since 1994 and you made sporting history with your Linsanity run.

    I love you, Jeremy Lin.

    I do, I select only the best things to remember.

    1999 was cool but, to my mind, Linsanity was more fun to watch.

    1999 was a near miracle. "Linsanity" was a predominantly media manufactured fad that has a very specific expiry date. Lin has more or less been figured out. Initially no-one saw him coming, but it didn't take long for them suss him out. You can expect him to post average (at best) stats next season.

    There was nothing media manufactured about the way I felt watching Lin take down the Lakers. For me, Linsanity stands right behind the 1998 Croatia World Cup and 2001 Ivanisevic Wimbledon.

    Few guys in the NBA league today could put together a similar 10 game run. The only thing that has been figured out is that Lin is an above average baller that has a strong shot at being a perennial All-Star.

    How monumentally stupid are the rockets. Makes absolutely ZERO sense.. Let us just take a look back at all the bone headed moves they have made recently

    -let Goran Dragic who is CLEARLY better than Lin go for absolutely nothing so they could over pay Lin

    -Traded away Dalembert who is a very servicable two way legit center so they could give a ridiculous amount of money to Omar Asik who is just such an offensive liability.

    -Amnestied Luis Scola

    -Are about to trade away all of their draft picks and recently drafted players and add a crap ton of salary just to rent Dwight Howard for one year only for him to leave after one season

    WTF are they DOING? Who is running this ****ing place?.. Now we have to pay for their idiocy. Why get rid of two clearly superior point guards so you can steal someone elses??? Makes zero sense..

    I hope this joke of a team enjoys missing the playoffs again next year and the year after because they aren't going ANYWHERE.. They had a great team that was just another decent big and forward from making a good playoff run. And they throw it away for nothing. COmpletely ridiculous.
    The answer is simple, Lin brings fans to the games. Dragic & Lowry do not. It's all about the dollars & cents in the Rocket's eyes. It's a smart business move to get Lin over to Houston. Was never really a smart move to let him go to begin with, so they're doing what they can to correct their own blunder.

    Monetarily speaking, the Knicks should have easily matched that offer sheet, they stood to make much more money than they would have had to shell out. This was all about Dolan not being happy with Lin not being upfront with the team & going behind their backs to work out a different offer sheet than the one he originally had verbally agreed to sign. If Lin had dealt with Dolan like a man & been upfront about what he wanted monetarily & notified the Knicks that it was going to take more than the original offer sheet to get him to agree to sign, the Knicks could have made their plans accordingly, but it didn't play out that way. Lin did what he did & squeezed the extra $5M on his deal assuming the Knicks were going to match anyway, he wanted his cake & eat it too. You don't mess around with Dolan. Lin is clearly aware of this now, & the only ones left to suffer are the Knicks fans as per usual. I'm so over how Dolan runs this team, I'm done getting upset over it. There's really no use, he's going to do things the way he wants to do it regardless of what any of us think, so why bother? I just hope Felton is back motivated next season & Kidd stops drinking & driving & focus more on what he's gonna bring to the Knicks on the hardwood next season.

    That first guy is a straight up racist. I think that post should come down, stuff like that should not be posted on a public forum. The fact that 2 other people Liked that comment is beyond pathetic & sad.

    That twitter thing from Fans is funny. Like people wouldn't go sign the best deals they possibly could. They talk all this loyalty stuff but Fans aren't loyal anyways. I now hope that Lin busts out of the NBA because if he is a legit top 10 PG every year putting up 18-8 i will be really tight.
