Should the Knicks Match $25 Million Offer to Keep Jeremy Lin in New York?

The Knicks just don't seem to know a good thing when they see it. Jeremy Lin, the phenomenally "linsane" Cinderella story that had all of New York -- and China -- enthralled with the New York Knicks, is one day away from being let go. It sure seems like "linsanity" for the Knicks to pick up older players like Jason Kidd while letting a young, lightning-rod player like Jeremy Lin get dealt to Houston with no resistance. What gives, New York?

MSN.FOXSPORTS.COM reports:
Jeremy Lin offer sheet reportedly wont be matched by New York Knicks, which would make him Houston Rocket.

    I am still wrappping my head around the fact that the Knicks signed 39-year old Jason Kidd to a 3-year contract worth $9 million. That's 9 mil in less wiggle room to work with under the salary cap. Kidd is a dinosaur when it comes to the NBA. The 23-year old Lin, on the other hand, is a valuable asset to the team. The Knicks have their priorities screwed up.

    It should be all about money for Lin. The Knicks and other teams do not make full commitment to any player. Go with the highest bidder and play basketball.

    The Knicks just traded for a starting point guard-- I believe it was Felton from Golden State. Now, no matter how good Lin is, he just represents another starting point guard, and they can't afford him at this point. What they REALLY need is a great defensive center so they can move Chandler to power forward. How about a trade, Carmelo Anthony for Howard? Orlando might be just deperate enough to do this. Jeremy Lin needs to improve on defense, take less shots, and start racking up assists.

    The Knick's by their action have told Jeremy that they don't believe in developing young talent with proven potential. They would rather take an aging 40 y/o player who have seen better days. They also bring back for an encore a player who has not proven himself to be difference maker. Lin is a floor general who can direct a team, distribute the ball and make other players around him better. Jason Kidd has this ability but his best days are behind him. Anthony can score but does not play team basketball on a consistent ball and mostly win when he is allowed to play one on one and can dominate the ball.He does not get other players involved so if he is shut down in a game , most of the time the Knicks will lose. I wont be going to the garden this year. I wish Lin success and will be rooting hard for him.

    You are right. The Knicks made a big mistake. They made the mistake when they brought in Kidd and Felton. They should have left well enough alone and stuck with Lin. However, the Knicks seem to be prone to making mistakes. The Knicks signed Houston and let Lin go to Houston. Remember the saviour of the 60's, Ray Felix? Anthony is the best player on the team, and his JOB is to score, not to pass.

    They should keep him because, now they know exactly where he fits in. They should play him more with Carmello just for measure since he came in when Carmello was injured. The Knicks have more depth with him.

    He did not ask for it that is what the market was willing to pay. Ask Houston. Besides he generate world wide marketing and advertising dollars for the Knicks. Who else on the team comes close. Merchandise forget about it. He would easily surpass Anthony in merchandise. They would make their money back.

    I am selfish because I know that Lin is an exciting player who make want to watch the game. But deep down I know he is going to a better team and will have a better chance to reach a champion ship than staying here.
