How much is Jeremy Lin worth? The Houston Rockets offered him $25 million and the Knicks just decided today to let him go. To these fans, Lin is priceless–a gem the team couldn’t afford to lose. They started a petition to keep him on and they have over 12,000 signatures.
Jeremy Lin is the best thing that has happened to New York Knicks basketball in the last 20 years. With Jeremy Lin as the team’s leader, the team won. He averaged 18 points and 7 assists as a starter – All-Star level performance. He has the largest fan base of any player in the NBA, by an order of magnitude. He’s got the personality and character that fans love. He’s the one player the New York Knicks need to keep, not lose. Don’t let Jeremy Lin go – match the Rockets’ offer.
You know what James Dolan responds to you guys? The everyday fan. He just loves you. He listens to what you have to say. Get to 25,000 signatures and I’m sure he’ll ask Isiah Thomas if this sounds like a good idea.
Keep up the hard work Knicks fans. Your team’s going places!
