Isn't Lin worth the $5MM it would cost in each of the next two seasons? The $30MM is a myth. The Knicks could use the Stretch provision of the CBA, waive Lin and all he'd cost is $5MM for 3 years.
Lin didn't just have a good game or 2, he showed enough vs. some tough competition that he is at least a very good PG in this league.
Funny how people question Lin's sample size but many of the same people have christened Kreider an untouchable after an even smaller sample size.
And now Lin will probably wind up in Houston because Dolan's team was stupid enough to show their cards - "we'll match up to a billion dollars!" - and they gave Houston the opportunity to revise the deal. Some stuff never changes at the Garden. When is Isiah returning?
