Linsanity swept the nation in February as the Harvard man tore through the NBA and led the Knicks to a seven-game winning streak. He outplayed Kobe at MSG by dropping 38 on the Lakers. Unfortunately, a torn meniscus limited him to 35 games. The Knicks will be damned if they do pay him and damned if they don’t. The poison pill contract will pay him more than $10 million in years three and four. If they don’t match, then the fans and media will tear them a new one. This is the type of shit Knicks fans are probably used to by now.
