I’m sure you know what Lin means to us diehard Knick fans. For many of us, myself included, whose first memories of Knicks fandom are Antonio McDyess’ micro-fracture and 23 win seasons, Linsanity was the most fun we ever had watching the Knicks, period.
Now what’s done is done, but don’t you think you owe the fans at least an explanation of what happened? Of how the organization told us they “don’t see any scenario where he’s not back” to walking to Houston for nothing? Of how you lied to us by telling us “absolutely…he’s the starter”?
It’s a business , and things change, but isn’t the fan base owed an explanation? We got nothing. Even Lin, who saved, the season says he doesn’t know why he’s not a Knick.
But then I realize the Knicks don’t care for the fans one single bit. Instead of an explanation we got an embarrassing smear campaign against Jeremy. We were left twisting in the wind for a decision till 11PM when I’m sure you decided much earlier in the day.
I just have one question: Why did the Knicks let a huge asset walk for nothing? Did your organization really choose to be frugal NOW? Did your organization really not think he was better than the minimum salary player who will take his roster spot?
I could go on and on pointing out the lame excuses put out there and countering them because you will never give us an official explanation for this move. We will never get a moment of closure because the Knicks don’t care for their fans.
And that’s a damn shame considering the unwavering loyalty we’ve showed the last decade.
