Jeremy Lin Signs With Rockets: As described in one of my previous posts http://theteenagesportswriter.sportsblognet.com/?p=19, the Jeremy Lin saga will be the talk of this offseason, simply because every single person in America was certain the Knickerbockers of New York would sign Lin's offer sheet. Combine the shock of the signing with the NBA's most popular and marketable player, and nothing will top it. When Peyton Manning left Indy, at least we all knew he was going to leave. Even when Lebron passed on Cleveland, it's not like he was guaranteed to resign (although people seemed to forget that over the course of their Lebron hatred.) The Knicks told the man to explore his options, and that they would match the offer no matter what. Now, Lin is a Rocket and the Knick fan base hates Jim Dolan even more.

As quickly as "Linsanity" took over all of New York City, it seems as though it's come to an end just as fast.Just twenty-five starts in, and Jeremy Lin's Knicks tenure officially (somewhat shockingly) came to a close as the team opted not to match the guard's $25.1 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets.Though the Knicks had publicly made Lin a top priority...

New York Knicks officials and the casual fan may have had trouble gauging Jeremy Lin's value to the Knicks, but the stock market makes it pretty clear Lin was quite an asset. Since the Knicks declined to match the Rockets offer sheet, letting Lin go to Houston, Madison Square Garden stock has dropped $93 million, according to CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell. ...
As the Knicks decline to match the Rockets’ offer for Jeremy Lin, we can only wonder if “Linsanity” will continue or will it fade faster than the Triple XL T-Shirt phase. When Lin decides to take his talents to Houston, the Lin memes will continue, but will it be as big? Up until his midseason explosion in February this year, he was virtually unknown. Since then, he’s been...

Although he mixes up the position of Dolan in the Knicks organization, hats...
