I think the "shot" is that the 73 days with Kanye overlaps her 72 with Kris.... *shrugs*

It's amazing seeing the thread +%** on the Knicks for matching when that troll "reported" it and now #*@!#@%* on the Knicks for letting him go.

Carry on.

I expect nothing less from the geniuses here.

The flip flopping within the last few weeks on Lin has been ridiculous, even for NT standards.

Sorta like how Knicks fans wanted him back. Lin signs updated offer sheet and character assassination reports all of a sudden leak out and Knicks fans get swayed and now prefer the Knicks didn't match.

I don't understand the NYK criticism. If they match or not, it's a no lose situation. Don't match, cool...one less contract to worry about. Focus on building chemistry with Felton/Kidd running point.

If they did match and worse case scenario, Lin is a bust after year 2, they can waive him and break that $15 mill down over the following 3 years. Or move that $15 milli contract to another team. Expiring contracts are attractive and NOBODY can't be traded. We've seen Luke Walton and Joe Johnson be traded....somebody will trade for Lin.

Best care scenario for NY, Lin reaches his potential as a marketable and more importantly, productive starting point guard. The knicks are already in cap hell for the next 3 years and if Dolan wants to spend that money, who cares?

I don't see how they go wrong.

Why do people continue to say this?

Kidd, Terry, Barea, Dirk, Butler, Marion, Haywood, Stevenson, etc, etc. were all there the previous season or more before winning a championship. No, it wasn't like two years ago. It was like last year, but a younger version. Cuban lost key parts to the team after winning the championship and threw the rest of the roster together with misfits. He's doing the same thing this season.

Shocked to say the least. $40+ mil lux tax penalties are nothing new to Dolan.

He was going to be in luxury tax anyway with without Lin's $15 mil 3 years from now, so I thought he would've decided to go all out for the city's first title since '73

Oh well.

No one cares if you sign him or not. It's just ALL OF A SUDDEN he's a bad guy, he could have played in the playoffs, we made him, who cares about marketability?, other players worried how much he's making, He's trash. You guys just sound bitter and it's funny to NT smiley: laugh

I love how Frank Isola cries about the Knicks organization and how they treat him but when another reporter for another paper gets the report out first, whines that credit should be given to who released the info. Can't have it both ways Frank

Trust...when I'm referring to all the smart guys on here, it also includes a bunch on our side as well. It's disappointing seeing numerous people fall for the propaganda being pushed forward from our dysfunctional %@* organization.

Dub said it best. This type of nonsense doesn't occur w/ Lakers or Spurs for a reason. It all starts at the top...our owner is a moron and gets involved with everything. Well, Mark Cuban does too but at least he knows what he's doing most of the time.

Cuban also isn't enforcing a 'don't talk to the media' policy while having leaked reports coming out every other day that undermine the team. smiley: tired

My stance on Lin's been the same since the beginning. I don't blame him one bit for getting his money...I feel like both sides could've handled things better (ESPECIALLY the Knicks' brass) if they wanted to continue their relationship but things are what they are now and nothing will change. Knicks better hope Felton isn't stuck to the Halal stand on 53rd Street and Kidd isn't running into any more telephone polls during the season...

Monday’s MSG market-cap drop would have paid for Lin contract

July 16, 2012, 2:28 PM

Much has been made already about the New York Knicks decision — reportedly at this point — not to sign Jeremy Lin. But another way to look at the move is that the Knicks’ owner, Madison Square Garden Inc. MSG +0.08%, has already lost more money in market capitalization than the cost of Lin’s contract.

The 64-cent drop in MSG stock equates to a market capitalization loss of about $49 million.

Estimating the cost to MSG of matching the Jeremy Lin contract offer from the Houston Rockets is a bit trickier. The roughly $25 million over three years that the Knicks would owe the Harvard graduate is almost irrelevant, because the Knicks will be paying the NBA’s full salary cap, and then some, with or without Lin. The only real direct cost comes from the luxury-cap implications.

This piece by Business Insider does a pretty good job of laying out different scenarios for 2014, when the Lin contract could be considered, to use Carmelo Anthony’s terminology, “ridiculous.” The one this author feels would have been most likely is not actually presented — getting rid of Marcus Camby and Raymond Felton, and keeping Iman Shumpert — but the approximate difference in luxury tax between keeping Lin or not is somewhere in the order of $35 million to $40 million.

And that’s assuming no business impact at all from the revenue side. (Even if a Lin-inspired boycott by Knicks fans is short-lived, it does seem there will be at least some  negative revenue element from not bringing back the popular player.) And when  you factor in the time value of money — e.g., money now is worth more than money later — the Lin non-signing is even more a negative for MSG stockholders.
