This isnt like 1997 with Messier. Messier was a captain and winner, and had a good 1997 despite injury. He was insulted when they offered a one-year deal for 4-million, and he and Smith stopped getting along.

Vancouver was ridiculed for offering Messier that contract and it blew up in their face. They never considered that Messier had a very bad 2nd half in 1997, was injured, and that he would divided the locker room and city since Linden would no longer be Captain.

Lin isnt Messier. He's not Carlos Beltran who banked off of the 2005 playoffs.

He could be Mark Davis. One-year wonder.

I agree with the Knicks if they decide not to match. I agree 100pct. Houston is Jesus Country and taxes are lower. Lin will love it there.
