I was 85% of the minimum requirement i can play, get the **** out - who talks like that?
But stop hating on Lin -___- he saved the knicks chances to be in the playoffs ! & it was a knee injury!!! U could risk losing ur whole career as a rookie w no contract!!! R u ****ing kidding me? Some of u r stupid as hell.. If u were in his shoes.. U had 20 games of fame n aint get paid yet.. Knee injury at 85% w ur team alrdy being down like 3-1 w most of them being blowouts!
OHHHH and ur asking a guy recovering from knee surgery to play in a series where we saw 2 of his teamates shumpert n barron davis destroy their knees.
