I’m not a New York Knicks fan but I don’t blame them for not keeping Lin. That contract is too much for the Knicks to handle with Chandler, Anthony and Stoudemire already on the books (even though NY has been notorious for giving ridiculous deals) and after adding the pass happy point guards Jason Kidd and Raymond Felton, it gives everyone more shots that Lin could have taken away. You can’t expect the Knicks to utilize shooters like Steve Novak and J.R. Smith if Jeremy Lin is taking 15 shots a night.
And in a perfect situation, Jeremy Lin should have known better that the Knicks wouldn’t match a contract like that. Good luck counting all your money while the Rockets have a hard time getting into the playoffs in a stacked conference. Have fun passing ball to your only option Kevin Martin.
