The discussion about the Jeremy Lin non-signing has mostly portrayed the Knicks' decision to let Lin walk as the deeply considered output of a complex financial calculus. Well, apparently not! The Knicks didn't match Houston's contract offer because their owner, James Dolan had his wittle feelings hurt by Jeremy Lin's totally standard and predictable decision to hit up the Rockets for more money. (The Knicks weren't exactly cagey about their eagerness to re-sign Lin, remember. "They will match any offer on Lin up to 1 billion dollars," someone told ESPN's Marc Stein. Why can't the Knicks play in my poker game?)
Anyway, a very good and very popular Knick is in Houston now, apparently because James Dolan had a sad. In light of this news, there's only one question left to answer. Is James Dolan an asswipe? Or is he a schmuck? You tell us in the discussion below.
