Damn. First comment and already people were getting racist. Why's everyone mad at Lin for trying to get more money? He spent so many years getting paid next to nothing (by NBA standards) so he had every right to jump on the best offer.

It is the easiest and most hurtful card to play, it will always be used first.

For the record, does anyone else think the current system for signing RFAs is completely biased towards lesser teams? Why Houston can throw out a back heavy offersheet that they don't have to commit to themselves is silly, imo. They already have the advantage of structuring the deal to suit their financial situation perfectly, why can they throw out a structure that they don't have to commit to?

So Knicks fans rip a player for leaving, when his own teammaates thought he was shit The Knicks entire situation is so dysfunctional, Dolan is the worst owner of all time, a delusional fan base, politiking teammates, etc.

I always felt like Carmelo was jealous of the attention Lin was getting.

You really have to be a nontraditional PG to help out your best player that utilizes isolation so often. I mean, yeah, a better point guard could technically put the ball at the elbow for Mello and let him do his thing. So, by default the point guard ends up being a spot up shooter and halfcourt ball handler (this isn't even always true).

Carmello is not a pick and roll player, Carmello is a decent spot up shooter but he rather prefer to put the ball into iso and Carmello is usually the end of the line for the Knicks offense. Don't get me wrong, Carmello is amazing, but if he would just slightly change his game to improve those around him, oh, and play even a little bit of defense it would make me mark.

Carmelo's not even a bad defender to be honest, he's just lazy.

I live the New York area, and Jeremy Lin was "breaking news."

I hate New York media.

One source familiar with the talks, though, cautioned to not make too much of that shift just yet.

The Cavaliers would land Lakers center Andrew Bynum for a package of draft picks and veteran power forward Anderson Varejao, according to one league source. The Lakers would receive Howard for Bynum. Orlando would get Varejao and draft picks. The source said this was merely the framework of a deal being discussed.
Why would Orlando do that? Think Bynum will walk after 2013?
