If he never played in New York, his new contract wouldn't even exist.
4yr/28.4m...now that's Linsanity!

It is a marketing move more than a basketball move, in my opinion. A brilliant marketing move, but a marketing move all the same.

He was on a hot streak and ESPN was marketing the heck out of him..He blew up in just 2 weeks then BOOM injury and not to be heard from again.I think his market value will drop off drastically no matter where he plays! Now he has some added pressure with the new structure of his contract,With pressure of having something to prove i simply don't see it with this kid...It was a heck of a 2-3 week run he was on and ESPN made sure we got to see every shot and assist,but stick a fork in his card hype!That got topped out already nowhere to go but down from here on out.
i may be wrong but i am going with my gut and what i have seen from him as a player
