Jeremy Lin Saving the New York Knicks Vs Jazz and Nets

Jeremy Lin who jumped from obscurity to fame when he played with New York Knicks last season 2011- 2012 averaged 14.6 points , 3.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 35 games, seems to leave the Knicks after a tempting proposal made ​​by the Houston Rockets for a three-year $25 million deal.

According to the New York Times , Knicks have decided on Tuesday night not to match the offer of $ 25 million for three years : "The contract with Houston includes a third-year balloon payment of $14.9 million, which would have cost the Knicks another $35 million or more in luxury-tax penalties had they matched the deal. The so-called poison pill was designed to dissuade the Knicks." NYT reports.

The Knicks fanbase who tried to keep its young star to stay in NY, have been disappointed after that news , as they did their best , in 15 July they made a petition to keep Jeremy Lin : "Jeremy Lin is the best thing that has happened to New York Knicks basketball in the last 20 years. With Jeremy Lin as the team’s leader, the team won. He averaged 18 points and 7 assists as a starter – All-Star level performance." click here for the full description of the petition.

While on 16 July , Knicks fans go wild to match the offer tendered by the Houston Rockets as topless dancers fans work at Rick's Cabaret |New York Gentlemen's Club plead to the Knicks management to Keep Jeremy Lin.
