God forbid ! Felton outplayed him last season for 3 mil, 14 mil? no thanks !
Lin would play better in a big market. He thrives in big time. But, last season Mchale had him coming off bench in playoff games. I mean his contract should be starter if not borderline all star material at 5 mil a year with a boost to 15 in year 3.
That contract makes him a trade chip in two years. But as of right now the Rockets should just keep him so Dwight has a suitable PG.
"The Knicks are back" - Amare
NOT NATE BECAUSE.....the BULLS could employ Nate without Heinrich or ROSE...but not the Knicks. We are not good enough to have a defensive liability like Nate.
I see theres still some Linsanity residue left over. I think the Rockets are ruining this poor guy by banking on his popularity more than his game. I havn't seen much of an improvement and that contract of his will have most teams running from him...if he dosen't take his game to the next level. First the Rockets cut him now they pay him too much money that no team will touch unless he plays up to his contract. One reason I wouldn't want him back is because he'll be more of an distraction then an asset. That contract he signed is going to haunt him.
I hope so, we could really use him. I know he is limited on defense but his offense surely makes up for it.
Oh, and he would not come off the bench. He would easily be the best point guard on this team.
He is about equal to Felton on offense, and much better than Felton on defense, and this is all the while he was playing on the team where he wasn't even the primary ballhandler, not to mention alongside a ballhog like James Harden.
He would easily be the best PG on this team but we would be stuck in the same situation with his salary.
u dont have to be a Jeremy Lin fan or rocket-scientist to know this article is BULL....,,
The Houston Rockets had a 45 win season with Lin playing all 82 games, averaging 32 minutes of playingtime, 13 pts, 6 ast, 3 rb, 1 stl, 3 turnovers, on 44% FGA, making 1 out of 3 from 3-ball line .. these are stats from a first full season NBA player. Did Lin rush to sign the Rockets first offer? NO! Do u think Lin have a NO Trade Clause in the Rockets 2nd offer? Hell Yeah!
As for Lin coming back to the New York Knicks organization, a team that broke off all communication with Lin the first day of the 2012 offseason. A interim GM Grunwald walking a tight rope of being FIRED (5-18 start), untill Lin-Sanity performance leading the point made all interim-Grunwald offseason pickups (Shump, Tyson, Jefferies, Novak) into (25+ minute) winning players in a 13-3 run.
There were to many games in MSG where the sell-out crowd only gave standing ovations to Lin & Tyson.
When Amare & Melo return, even Novak receive standing ovation over our two super-stars.
Lin's big mistake as a Knicks was wanting to win on defense creating the offense.
Which lead to a few games where Lin did not pass the ball to a no-defense ISO-Melo (Dolan's Goldenboy) ..
No more to b said.
The trio of "Mchale, Harden, and Lin" had a big misunderstanding the final 15 games of the regular-season.
It's a new team...
