Jeremy Lin, Is it New York Knicks or Houston Rockets?
According to ESPN New York, Jeremy Lin is upset at the New York Knicks for not making an offer for a new contract before the Houston Rockets. The Houston Rockets who had Jeremy Lin in training camp last season is finally seeing Linsanity’s worth. It is said that the Rockets made a generous offer to Lin with a contract having an estimated worth $28.8 million for the next four seasons (broken down to “$10.2m the first two seasons and over $9m each of the last two”)… compared to last seasons payout of $788,000, $10.2m in one season now that’s an hefty amount. However, According to a correspondent ESPN New York, the Knicks can easily match and “will match any offer on Lin up to 1 billion dollars.” Only time will tell if New York City will go a few more rounds with the Linsanity… or will Houston be the next city for Emperor Lin to reign.
I think it’s dangerous when people are super “proud,” but I must admit I’m loving the “Linsation,” and I haven’t really cared about basketball since 96 (half jokes with the year drop). This particular moment was so epic, but the whole story is like Might Ducks feel good.
