Frank Isola explains why Knicks let Jeremy Lin go
Isola said that the Knicks were going to match the Rockets’ original offer, but then Lin went back and got a new offer that proved to be too much.
Isola tried to explain what Knicks owner James Dolan was thinking: “He felt somewhat deceived. And he felt Jeremy Lin wasn’t being loyal to a Knicks team that gave you a chance.”
Isola said New York fans are upset about this and now are looking squarely at Carmelo Anthony, who is Dolan’s guy.
Isola also said that the Knicks’ free-agency strategy — going after Steve Nash and signing Jason Kidd — showed that they had their doubts about Lin.
