yeah **** that
Let him walk
Resign him and keep him long term
Resign him and trade him January 2013 with Amare
Good is just another way of me saying "AVERAGE"
I say Lins Average-- "im labeled a Lin hater"
I say Lins good-- "There's excuses on not responding to the point i'm trying to make"
Spare me please.
Either way i'm sure your getting what i'm saying he's OK OR GOOD OR AVERAGE SO/SO. etc etc
basically he's not ELITE OR GREAT whatever trying to make him out to be and you obviously have no argument to what i said except i re"arranged a word which makes this pretty pointless.
But if you would like to keep going ill edit the word "GOOD" and make it Average for you then you can continue to enlighten me on how he's not "average" im not confused or lost i know exactly what i'm saying.
LIN's an AVERAGE PG im sure everything is cleared back up for you now.. lets hear your debate please don't tell me he had a nice stretch because i heard that already, and made a argument about his "nice stretch"
If thats your only argument then i'm done.
At the end of the day
You have your opinion on LIn and i have my opinion on Lin, no point in debating about a guy that's not even on the team anymore.
I think we all can agree with that.
Lin also put up the most assists ever in that time.
That was NOT the system. Please explain.
Also, Lin brought us the 1st offer and measured our intentions, cool. Lin instead of doing the same, signed on for an offer that amounts to about $5mil more for him and about $40mil more cost for us (the team he claims he loves and wanted to be a part of)
Newsflash#4 RUBBER AND GLUE B***TH, You ARE the ignorant BIGOT. My father marched in the civil-rights movement of the 60's, was one of the first Black PHD'S from MIZZOU, and always told me white people had a problem with the amount of money he made. And that aint million $$$$ money either. Don't talk about what you don't know about. The very fact that 25 games makes LIN worth millions of $$$$$, yet a proven star like MELO "hasn't earned his money" and is criticized mercilessly around here makes my point for me. Here is a dollar so you can buy a clue B***TH So what if there are blacks that criticize MELO??? We don't all look and think alike.
Good to hear you don't know anything about Jeremy Lin or his background. Lin's parents were asian immigrants they came with what they could gather up and struggled through tough times while attempting to staying afloat.
* Try moving from a poor country to another foreign country with a totally different culture - with little to no english skills, and move to a few states while trying to survive, find a roof, and keep the energy bills paid so you aren't going to sleep in the freezing winter with no warmth.
* I've heard countless stories about the level of staunch racism against asians in the 70s and 80s in NY its another reason why I sympathize with latinos.
He went to an Ivy league school because NO D1 SCHOOL WOULD GIVE HIM A SCHOLARSHIP. Not one collegiate scout bothered to visit him or even take a look. After he left and his HS picked up 2 BLACK players - the SCOUTS CAME. How many times do you need to realize that Jeremy Lin was being held down by racism from fellow AMERICANS of other ethnic backgrounds.
Harvard was willing to take him into their basketball program, do some research before you start talking as if you know. Your ignorance is blinding. You may well be one of the most IGNORANT posters on these forums since the racism fad in NY took off against Lin. Your assumptions and stereotypes are damning.
You keep mumbling about games and stats like a parrot without realizing that Jeremy Lin helped msg pull in over 600 million dollars and was the catalyst in the cable deal.
He has legions of fans that admire him for his humility, humbleness, character, hard-work ethic etc.
To these fans that spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on merchandise, league pass, tickets to games wherever he goes.
YES HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
He gives people HOPE that hard-work and doing things the RIGHT way - with CLASS will pay dividends in the end.
He has dealt with racism all throughout his life and been constantly over-looked because he is an ASIAN MALE. Its a shame that so many people can't look past that and give him a fair shake as an AMERICAN. That they blindly latch onto 1 or 2 things and use that as the ONLY reason he has value without evening looking at his upside like : POTENTIAL and WORK-ETHIC.
If you can't grasp that he is going through the MODERN days of what Jackie Robinson went through in the past with baseball then your just a hardcore racist.
I thought the NY conversation on Lin would have died down and the racism and hatred toward asian americans and asian males would have settled but it looks like you would like to perpetuate the narrow-minded racism that still proliferates on the internet and a segment of the New York Knicks fan population. The internets a marvelous advancement for humanity but it also shows how ugly portions of the human race are, filled with hatred and ignorance - employing stereotypes at will and assuming and passing judgement.
Without even bothering to do research or getting to know the real deal and the full story.
At least Steven A Smith has some valid points - you on the other hand have some serious hate in your heart.

Rumor going around lin faked his injury due to lockeroom drama
This shouldn't be about race. It's about how Dolan and the FO put money ahead of the possibility to make the NYK a better team.
