NBA VET STATES LIN’S CONTRACT MAY HURT EVEN HOUSTON

New Nets guard Jerry Stackhouse thinks the Knicks made the right move by not bringing back Jeremy Lin. Stackhouse, an 18-year NBA veteran, said in a video interview on SI.com that the Rockets’ three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet was too much to match “for a guy that’s only played 25 games for you.”  Stackhouse, who will […]

Like Linsanity Before It, Decision on Jeremy Fueled By Emotions

The New York Knicks decision to not sign the Houston Rocket’s offer sheet to Jeremy Lin was an emotional “don’t mess with me” decision by Knicks Boss James Dolan: Nothing more, and nothing less.

GOODBYE JEREMY AND GOOD RIDDANCE!!

     ROCKETMAN The pursuit of Steve Nash did show that the Knicks have big doubts about Lin’s ability to guide them in the short term with the win-now cast of characters in place. 25 million for a future D-league off the bench PG is absurd. Yell, Cry, stomp your feet but LIN is History in […]

HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM. IS LIN WORTH 42 MILLION IN LUXURY TAXES?

While both Lin and the Knicks are hoping for a reunion, sources have told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard that if any clubs offer Lin a back-loaded contract that pays him an eight-figure salary in the third and fourth years, the Knicks would be hesitant to match the offer. Lin will get $5M in year one, […]
