You meet a man on the Oregon Trail. He tells you his name is Terry. You laugh and tell him: "That's a girl's name!" Terry shoots you. You have died of dissin' Terry.

One of the most overhyped overrated players Ive ever seen. He wasn't worth it to the Knicks and I don't blame them. Linsanity was a media created hype.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

1. Lin was pretty good for stretches last season.  Remember he's essentially a rookie getting his first playing time of any substantial amount. 

2. The contract is so backloaded that it is reasonable for the next two years, in the third year you have the option of renogotiating for a long term deal if he is doing well, trading him and his expiring contract if he sucks.

3. The Knicks are replacing him with a 39 yr old alcoholic and an overweight guy who was run out of Portland.


Best case scenario, he's a better version of JJ Barea, who the Mavericks do not win the championship without 2 yrs ago.  Worst case scenario, he's an energetic scorer off the bench.

Thrilla will be ecstatic to learn that.  I get the sense his kind is suspect in Decatur.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.
