$36 Million Man: Jeremy Lin Headed Back To NY With A Trade To The Brooklyn Nets + Shade Getting Thrown Already?

Friday, July 01, 2016

Add up the money - nice work if you can get it.

Add up the playing time - great views for lots of Asian American kids hoping to hoop for a living.

Add up the fact that he gets reunited with Kenny Atkinson of the Linsanity days - and maybe Linsanity spreads like wildfire again.

Biggest contract to date.

Averaged 11.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists last year.


Apparently - or possibly rather - maybe not everyone was happy about it including former Nets' point guard Jarret Jack who was just released by the Nets (because they couldn't trade him):
Now, to be fair, we don't know for sure that Jack's tweet was about Lin getting $12M per year -- nearly double what Jack has ever made for a season during his 11-year career. He could have been catching up on "Veep" on his DVR. Or maybe he was in a hot sculpting class and his instructor made a funny joke. But based on the 3,000+ retweets on Jack's tweet, it's safe to say the Twitter audience thought it was about Lin's contract.

Jack has since said he was not tweeting about JLin's contract.
