|NBABrothers Thoughts & Theories
One Knicks opportunity is lost almost as quick as it was found. Jeremy Lin, the sophomore star of the New York Knickerbockers, took the Big Apple by storm for 25 games in February. I cannot imagine how the Knicks would just let him go after such an amazing run that he had scoring 38 on Kobe, hitting the game winner in Toronto, and dunking it on the Wizards. The Houston Rockets offered Lin a 3YR/$25.00M contract, with the last year of his contract earning 14.8M out of the 25M. At first I thought to let him go, but then I looked back at some of the highlights with Lin doing incredible moves around people, and then I thought that he was definitely worth it. According to James Dolan, owner of the Knicks, he truly was not enough.
Jeremy Lin said he was 85% ready to play in the playoffs, but the coaches and staff told him to relax and not play. I could not believe what Dolan had done. They should definitely fire him and hire a new owner. Any owner has more experience than Dolan. Even though we acquired Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, and Kurt Thomas, I still think that Lin is more important than them. Anyway, we lost the players we wanted to get rid of like Jared Jeffries, Toney Douglas, Josh Harrellson, and Jerome Jordan. I think that Lin will do extremely well with Houston, and maybe even give the Rockets a 7 or 8 seed in the playoffs. Also, the situation with Brooklyn acquiring Joe Johnson, for a bunch of nobody's to help out D-Will. Did we just let go of the superstar that could help Carmelo?
