thank you. been saying this to ad nauseum
Has got to stop.. Yall acting like we just lost Chris Paul or something. It's someone we know little about in terms of what his full value and potential is. We'll be fine..
Im not just mad about Lin leaving, Im mad that we have nothing to be excited about at the PG position going into next season. Almost every position we have someone who can on any night really light up the court, but now we've settled for felton who looks SO out of shape that it is just sad more than anything. Looking at him actually depresses me.
What really makes me angry is we did nothing to get a deal for Dragic or Lowry, we didn't decide to let him go sooner, we once again got screwed over and ended up with jack like we always seem to.
We didn't loose Chris Paul but we lost our most exciting player next to carmelo for absolutely nothing. And it sucks badly.
Sillyboy .... Jeremy Lin was as close as the Knicks will ever get to having a Chris Paul. The incompetence of u dating a virgin woman for a year and your homeboy comes along to pop her cherry.
Winning the arbitration for Birds Rights became a waste of great luck when our Knicks management incompetence showed no interest at all in one of the NBA biggest $$$ comodities since Lebron & MJ.
Did Lin-Sanity lose any fans? Hell No! he gained more.
Did the Knicks lose any fans? Hell yeah! watch all the Knicks jerseys in the new Brooklyn Nets stadium.
Interim Grunwald would not be the Knicks new GM if there was no Jeremy Lin...
1st bold: Lin might have cost the Knicks 43 mill in the 3rd year. Fixed that for you. There are things you can do to make sure this doesnt happen.
2nd bold: So the heat backcourt exposing Lin, would this be similar to how the Heat Front Court exposed Melo? You wanted him to play at less than 100%/ wouldnt that make him likely to be exposed by the Heat backcourt more likely?
As far as saying "Lin is the closes thing the Knicks had to having a chris paul". I don't see how that's possible because Jeremy Lin is nothing like chris paul, not even close matter fact nowhere near close to bringing the type of Impact chris paul has on games. Chris Paul is a GAME CHANGER and FRANCHISE PLAYER. Jeremy Lin is an average PG with many flaws to his game and still has along way to go before he's in the league with the big boys.
Lin will never be anything close to Chris Paul especially not in this system where woody runs the offense through Melo and Amare.
To say Lin was the closes thing the Knicks will ever had to being a Chris Paul is grossly Naive.
Lin was the closes thing the knicks ever had to being a "Prime steve Nash"... but a Chris Paul ?? NOT A CHANCE.
