Funny thing is.... the Knicks could have extended him with a cheaper 4-yr contract before the season was over.... but they chose to gamble and lost.

Not sure how that makes it Lin's fault. Oh well.... :police:

'fuck u nigga' perfectly summs it up

I'm starting to feel like the Internet should be avoided at all costs.

I went over to the NYK RealGM forum. It's hilarious.

these facebook guys though, they're morons.

Don Vito 07-18-2012 04:12 PM

Was Lin a franchise player in N.Y? Sure seems like it :roflmao:

Kirby 07-18-2012 04:15 PM

I hope these guys are happy with JR Smith. Taking less money to stay loyal to NYK. :cookie:

LOYALTY HOO HAH.

How is this in any way surprising. New Yorkers are extremely arrogant and feel entitled.

I really really doubt he would have taken a cheaper 4 year contract over playing it out.

Aamir 07-18-2012 04:18 PM

They gave him a chance? :roflmao:


There was no one else to play at the point after Douglas was playing horrific. Yeah New York, you really took a gamble didn't you.

Knicks could have got him for cheaper contract, as he would have been guaranteed with the limited role in NY (probably supporting Melo and co. for their stat building), while he is capable of growing further.

I'm pretty sure Fields will have a chance to score 10+PPG (with sweet passes from Lowry/Jose) with possibly 7+ RPG (with Bargnani on the court).

The only concern is whether he could defend those top class SFs, like LBJ, KD, Melo, PP, etc. If he can effectively defend them, then Field's 20M/3yr contract is a crazy good deal :)

lol, this makes the lingering hate here for Vince, Bosh and Nash seem rather mild..

Knicks fans can now switch to being Brooklyn fans. Good for Lin though to leave the team that has sucked after the Ewing era.

I have to say it, they are right on all counts

NY fans hyped him up and he got double money he's worth

I'd love to hear this explained. He got a contract with one year too big to ensure they'd get him. NY declined, and never made an initial offer. He signed the only off he had and hoped NY would match. Please let me know how he was a traitor or not loyal. Pleaaaaaaase let me know what he should have done differently.

Superjudge 07-18-2012 07:49 PM

Ultimate sign that you are loved.

tommysdu 07-18-2012 08:04 PM

It would suck if Lin doesn't live up to the hype. Those NYer's just going to say how their team did the smart move of not signing him
