ya Bosh hasn't really played well or been all that relevant this series (or during the last few weeks of the season for that matter), but does it really matter? the team may as well be penciled into the nba finals series the way the east has shaped up with the injuries....

oh well at least the west is and will continue to be exciting

the team is pressuring him hard to play becuase now they have bibby starting and toney douglas off the bench. both were getting absolutely zero minutes when lin and baron were both healthy.
but its a lose-lose situation for lin. they aren't gonna win anyways and lin's a free agent, not 100%. he's never played a playoff game before and its on the heat's home court. its almost a guarantee he's gonna have a bad game and end the season on a soar note and hurt his free agency. i hope he doesn't give in to the pressure and sit game 5

They won't. Because he'll be worth the money.

business wise he's worth a max, but he's obviously not getting a max so thats a bargain right there.
as for basketball wise, its debateable what everyone thinks he deserves, some overrate him others underrate him, so its even harder to gage what is considered overpaid. so theres no point getting into that.

Stoudamire needs a point guard that can shoot and give him the rock in the right spots. That's where Jeremy Lin comes in handy. He's tall enough to pass and shoot over the top. No way he should even think about playing on a gimped knee. Brandon Roy did shit like that, and he can't play at all anymore. Save it for the summer buddy. A Lin/Amare pick n' roll is required for the Knicks to improve.

as a player with two or less years of experience, other teams will only be able to offer Lin the NBA “average salary” (around $5 million) for the first two years. This is called the “Gilbert Arenas Provision.” The Gilbert Arenas provision does, however, allow teams to “backload” a deal after the second year of a contract, but there are certain salary cap limitations that make this unlikely. Nonetheless, the Knicks would likely be able to match any such deal. Further, if Lin keeps playing at his current rate, he probably won’t want to sign on to a $5 million deal for more than one year.

I can't believe Bibby hitting so many shots when he couldn't hit rim last season. I guess the Heat overworked him with their conditioning requirements.

My fault. I read it as "basketball wise" not "business wise".
