Wow, I mean WOW! What can you say? This is as crazy as Acie Law getting PT ahead of Jeremy at Golden State. This is crazy like giving up JLin because you draft Charles Jenkins to replace him. This is crazy like cutting Lin instead of Jeff Adrian in Houston. This is crazy like having an over the hill Mike Bibby play in front of Jeremy. Now the topper, giving up JLin for nothing! What's another 6 million + luxury tax for a Billionaire?
This was not about money. It couldn't have been. That wouldn't make any sense. This was about Melo, Dolan, and Jeremy. Make no mistake about it, this was about power and ego's. The Knicks said from the beginning it was about business. We won't offer you Jeremy. Go see what you can get in the open market. Then the Knicks offer Jeremy's starting point guard position to Steve Nash, offering him 12 million a year. This must have really surprised JLin. So what is Jeremy to do? Well, he needs to get the best offer for himself, as everyone is saying the Knicks will match no matter how much he is offered. Seeing that business is business, the Rockets up their offer from 4 yrs/28 mil. to 3 yrs/25.1 mil.. Now all of a sudden, Jeremy is the bad guy? How can it be? Wasn't it about business?
After Jeremy's business team made that shrewd move, Dolan had his feelings hurt. Just like Melo during Linsanity. Big ego's can't take it when someone else is getting theirs. Don't get me wrong, Jeremy has a big ego as well. You can't be a great player without it. However, you'd think they could all work it out if they really wanted to win. But just winning is not what Dolan and Melo are about. They need to be the men. They both couldn't take Jeremy one upping them. But we all know what Jeremy Lin is all about. He is about winning and about playing team ball. I can't wait to see the start of the next Chapter to this great unfinished story!
It will also be fun teasing the lame NYC sportswriters as they have to watch IsoMelo while we get to watch the relaunch of Linsanity 2.0! By the way, their great max (next 3 yrs /$64,470,000) Melo was 1-7 for three points last night. How ridiculous is that contract? LOL!
I can already see the quality of writing compared to the NY pens (except for Howard Beck):
