This NBA offseason so far has created more questions than actual answers in the Jeremy Lin saga but soon we will find out his NBA playing destination.
Currently, it looks like that he will be a member of the Houston Rockets since it believed that the Knicks are unlikely to match Houston’s offer sheet for Lin.
As you may figure, some Knicks fans aren’t exactly pleased with this decision and one fan in particular decided to create an online petition to keep Lin in NYC using the website, Change.org.
Check out the reasons to sign the petition provided by the creator, “I Am Linsane”:
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.
He has the largest fan base of any player in the NBA, by an order of magnitude. He’s got the personality and character that fans love. He’s the one player the New York Knicks need to keep, not lose. Don’t let Jeremy Lin go – match the Rockets’ offer.
Over 1,000 people have signed the petition and it doesn’t surprise me that Linsanity was the reason why.
