If you haven’t heard already from numerous sources, Jeremy Lin has officially taken the $25 million offer from Houston Rockets after his home team, the New York Knicks, refused to match the offer. If I was in his shoes, I would take that offer because I could certainly use the payroll upgrade. But then there is that question of loyalty and being grateful to the people that made you a standout in the first place. It’s pretty clear that this is not sitting well with a LOT of people.
In Audrey Tse’s Our Chinatown article, one of the commentators left this on Jeremy Lin’s official FB page:
You sellout chink you should have stuck to the team that made you..your lucky ny even was lucky to sign you again after the way you played ur last few weeks..sicking..a true new yorker would have been loyal
Never mind the awful grammar (I guess writing in the Internet these days gives you a bad grammar pass) but this is only one of the few hostile sentiments from Lin’s supposed “fans” that are tearing up like diva queens in a hot flash.
So what do you guys think? Is Jeremy Lin a traitor for taking the better offer? Thoughts! Angry sentiments! Hot flashes! Lend us your thoughts!
