Hold That said:
Yes 15mil with a poision pill. If the Knicks are looking to move him then what team would want him at the 15mil last year with no ability to amnesty ? That's a large chunk of a teams cap for him.
Lin didn't fit well with NY, specifically with Melo and Amare. Lin also didn't play in the playoffs because he didn't want to hurt his stock.
As a fan Knicks need to get in the habit of thinking "if he's no good against Miami, fu*k itbwe don't need him" He fan k!ll against any other team but if he can't score double digits against the Heat thwn why are people sad he's gone? Heat are the team to beat afterall.
what are you talking about there is always a team willing to pick up a contract like that ,don't act stupid. Look at Joe Johnson, look at Rashard Lewis etc. Plus Lin is young and marketable, last yr was basically his rookie year, he was continuously getting better. And trust me I wasn't the type of fan that was all hooray on Lin. I watched his gm saw that he really had no left, turned the ball over a lil, and at the beginning couldn't hit a shot, but he kept on improving as the season went on and you could see him strengthening his weaknesses. Now is he gng to average his 26 and 8 when amare and melo come no. He was getting like 13 and 7 with the possibility of having a huge game once in a while and thats what you want
And to say that stupidity that he didnt want to play bc he didnt want to hurt his stock? Some of you guys watch to much tv, listening to stephen a. smith and what not. People think everyone is Wes Unseld or some sh*t. I tore my meniscus just last yr playing bball, its all good till a couple of hours then the swelling is rediculous. I wanted to play so badly that I decided to thug it out. If I was to get surgery which i ended up doing like 7 moths later i would initially hv to wait like 6 plus week and rehab to hopefully get back to normal. I waited like 3 weeks swelling went down, i played but i was not playing like myself, i ended up messing up my knee some more and didnt play the rest of the season. All im saying is that playing would be dumb with the possibility of fu*king your knee up more like I did, and only people have had an injury liek that can tell you
