As always, the video is well done and should end up soothing millions of New York Knicks fans over the next few months.
Here are the lyrics transcribed for your reading pleasure:
Now and then I think of when we played together
Like when you shot a jumper right in Kobe's eye
Bought a ticket back to MSG
Activated my cable TV
But that was back before you tore your left meniscus
Why'd you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they're still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
BEST OF MAXIM

Knicks fans may need a few days before it officially sinks in, but Jeremy Lin is a Houston Rocket. Between the knee injury last season and New York letting Lin walk in free agency, Linsanity ended about as quickly as it began. With New York’s decision to not match Houston’s $25.1 million offer, Jeremy’s life will undergo yet another rapid change. During an interview with Pablo...
DON'T LET GO
Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly felt "deceived" by Jeremy Lin who opted to sign with the Rockets and leave New York.
According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, this whole free agency thing has gotten out of hand for Jeremy Lin. We’ve touched on how Lin still has some growing to do when it comes to the business side of the NBA. And his handling of his free agency continues to prove it.
In an attempt to get the most lucrative contract he could, Lin signed an offer sheet with the Houston Rockets...
Earlier on Wednesday Jeremy Lin –now of the Houston Rockets — opened up about free agency and how he went from the height of Lin-sanity to someone who fell from the graces of James Dolan. And in this frank interview with Sports Illustrated he conveyed his feelings of wanting to be in New York, that was preference, [...]
HOUSTON If the general manager of the Houston Rockets were in public office, Daryl Morey would be in big trouble this election cycle. Approval ratings would be way down. And it probably wouldnt even matter whom he was running against.
Are you better off now than you were even one year ago? Morey's opponent might say. No. One year ago you had Goran Dragic. Now you have Zoran...
With the trade to bring former Knicks Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas back to New York now official, hope that the team will match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet with the Rockets continues to fade.Losing Lin would be devastating, to say the least. His impact and value both on and off the court makes him a key potential piece to the puzzle moving forward. Whether he played alongside...
More than 150 media members packed the Houston Rockets' practice court to be on hand for the introduction of Jeremy Lin as a member of the Rockets. The Houston Chronicle notes that's more media than attended the introductory press conferences for either Roger Clemens or Andy Pettitte when those two joined the Houston Astros. "I don't see myself as a conquering...
The New York Knicks troubles continued as the team decides if Jeremy Lin is worth $58.3 million in 2014-15.
The New York Post reports that if the Knicks matched the Rockets offer sheet for Lin, owner James Dolan could pay the $58.3 million because of the new CBA's luxury-tax penalties.
The Knicks seem to have decided to pair Jason Kidd with a cheaper point-guard in Raymond Felton...

Some interesting stories are surfacing about Lin regarding him being a little soft and the fame going to his head. I’m not sure I’m buying those rumors, but I do think the Knicks will be fine without him.

It’s looking more and more likely that the Knicks won’t be matching the contract the Houston Rockets gave to Jeremy Lin. In light of comments made by Carmelo Anthony and JR Smith, for chemistry’s sake, it seems like that is probably not a bad thing. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Smith was extremely candid about [...]
While Steve Nash’s take on Marlon Brando’s captivating portrayal of Mafia boss Vito Corelone in The Godfather is awful, that does not mean it is not hilarious. Further, I’m pretty sure, knowing Steve Nash’s penchant for absurdity, the terrible impersonation is intentional. Watching Nash cram grape after grape into his mouth while quoting some of [...]
Carmelo Anthony had the media in a frenzy today when word of his unclear “ridiculous” comment, in reference to Jeremy Lin’s contract offer from Houston, spread like wildfire. Before Team USA’s practice at George Washington University yesterday, Carmelo Anthony was asked about teammate, Jeremy Lin’s offer sheet from the Houston Rockets. He said what was on his mind, but...

Actually, they’re going with the facelift, tummy tuck, liposuction on the arms and throwing in a boob job.After letting their 2-time MVP point guard Steve Nash go to the Lakers, the Suns have been throwing around money to bring in some replacements.
They’ve already signed Michael Beasley and Goran Dragic. They lost the contest...
