The real Linsanity

Look, I don't think Jeremy Lin is worth $25 million, either. But this is the best breakdown I've seen yet on why the Knicks were Linsane (see what I did there?) to let him go to the Rockets for nothing.

I mean, seriously? You're ticked off Lin hired a publicist without consulting you, so you sulk like a 5-year-old? And in so doing, you cost yourself the only guy to make the Knicks nationally relevant since Patrick Ewing retired, and the guy who was largely responsible for your company's $600 million bump in value?

Most telling line in this: The revelation from Nate Silver of the New York Times that the Madison Square Garden Company's stock immediately dropped $50 million when word got out that Lin might leave. Expect that to accelerate now that he's gone.

Dumb, dumber, dumbest.
