• Report: Lin upset that Knicks didn't act quicker

    Summary of 95 articles · Updated Jul 19, 2012
    The Knicks don't do this to Lin. He does it to himself. If he had it his way, Jeremy Lin says he'd still be with the New York Knicks. “Jeremy Lin is the best thing that has happened to New York Knicks basketball in the last 20 years. Torre's exclusive interview with Lin whom he profiled in a pair of late February pieces that made Lin one of just three NBA players to appear on back-to-back SI covers includes some amazing details about Lin's courtship by the Knicks. When the New York Knicks confirmed Tuesday evening that they had decided not to match the three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet tendered by the Houston Rockets to restricted free-agent point guard Jeremy Lin, many fans expressed sadness at what they viewed as the too-soon conclusion of Lin's brief, remarkably eventful tenure in Manhattan. Because of New York's current payroll and the onset of a new, nastier luxury tax, the team would end up paying Lin around $30 million for his services in the final year of his deal, and a tax hit of anywhere between $35 million and $45 million as reported by the New York Times. Whether it's the Dwight Howard saga that has long since bordered on absurd, the doling out of max contracts to players who are hardly superstar material, or the high-stakes games being played between rival teams and their respective payrolls with poison pill provisions and such, this has been the summer of silliness.
