Knicks Continue Silence on Lin Leaving

Friday marks the one-month anniversary of the Knicks’ decision to let (Jeremy) Lin leave for Houston. Not a single team official has stepped forward to explain the move. It appears no team official will say anything until media day, on Oct. 1.
By then, two and a half months will have passed, giving the Knicks a convenient and self-created loophole: That’s old news. The approved script will no doubt be, “We’re looking forward” and “We’re focused on the players who are here” and “Look, Raymond Felton lost weight!”
It almost surely will not include a meaningful explanation of why the Knicks let their most popular player in a decade leave, rather than match a three-year, $25 million contract. Commenting runs counter to the Knicks’ prevailing, almost-pathological culture of silence.
