And for Dolan money is at the first place.
Jeremy Lin is such a huge cash cow for the Asian market worldwide. Just off of him being a starting PG in the NBA it brings in so much attention/revenue to the Knicks that any owner whether its Dolan in NY or cheap Robert Sarver in Phoenix would never let him go. I wouldn't either.
You can almost guarantee by the time we start next season that every single advertisement involving the Knicks will feature Jeremy Lin. Melo & Amare are going to be dogged out this offseason for this loss to Miami.
Im just waiting to see how long it takes for one of the columnists to suggest we trade Melo & Amare and re-build around Lin.
