So if you heard the show last night (Wednesday) you know I was bothered by a couple of sports issues and just kind of went off rambling. I’m going to see if I can clarify my thinking hear and see if it makes a little more sense.

Jeremy Lin goes to the Houston Rockets after the New York Knicks choose not to match his offer sheet. Help me out here; why where they acting like the Knicks had just lost a superstar to Houston? While Lin had some good games for the Knicks last season he also had one of if not the highest turnover ratio of any NBA point guard. While I think he’ll end up being a good, solid player for the Rockets I don’t think he’ll end up winning a championship there. Lin was an ESPN creation and they pushed him out their every chance they got. He was in New York and that made it a big deal for ESPN. If you’ve ever watched anything on the network you know that if it doesn’t happen in the east coast it didn’t happen. The Rockets did a nice job with their contract offer making it almost impossible for the Knicks to match it the way it was back loaded. I think the Knicks did the right thing in letting Lin go, but they’re far from innocent in all this. After they decided not to match the offer they leaked some info about Lin not playing when he was injured and I believe some other info, but I’m not sure about that. That’s very class less for a team to do. I still haven’t figured out why this was such huge sports news and was covered by ESPN like LeBron James switching teams. I’m not even sure Lin is a top 10 NBA point guard. I’d take Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Eric Gordon and Brandon Jennings ahead of him and that’s just off the top of my head; I’m sure there’s some point guards I missed. I hope I was able to make this seem more organized for you and would love your feedback.
