    that statement right here alone just shows your lack of knowledge. you can just tell from the interview that he's a very humble person and not any of the adjectives you spat out . how in the hell is he a back stabber when he was told by the Knicks to seek out opportunity. He did that. Before he signed the offer sheet, rumors of Nash and / or felton was swirling out there. what was he supposed to do? even Lin and Houston didn't think it would happen but THE KNICKS NEVER MATCHED THE OFFER and decide to go other ways. and that's fine for both parties. You can even turn it around and say that Lin and not Melo had put the Knicks back on the map again. the exposures the team had and the finance that Lin brought to New York and the team should be more than enough to bring him back but the stupid owner Dolan was and still is being a douche.

    yup. and despite the whole linsanity hoopla, he didn't have a lot of opportunity to make it in this league.
    he, and a lot of scouts/GMs, know that he probably will never replicate that level of play in the league (as we are witnessing now). he has to take that offer while his value is still high, or risk going back to the d-league or overseas, or out of pro ball forever.

    bosh/wade/lebron can and will get paid anywhere they go.

    c'mon strahan92osi72, you knowledgeable knick fan. you know better than this. a casual fan could've called this.

    The knicks made no offer to Lin. They told him to go out and test the market. He came back with and offer sheet from houston and the knicks elected not to match that offer.
