James Harden's stay in Houston won't be temporary. A few days after getting traded to the Rockets by the Oklahoma City Thunder, the 2012 NBA Sixth Man of the Year has officially agreed to a five-year, $80 million contract extension with the team. He's expected to start alongside Jeremy Lin well into the foreseeable future and anchor a team that's hoping to regain relevance in the crowded Western Conference. Congrats on the big payday, James.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Carmelo Anthony pointed out one of the keys to playing in New York City was "to keep my mouth shut and just play ball." But as everyone knows, actions speak louder than words and over the last couple months, Anthony's mouth has overshadowed everything he's done on the court. From calling Jeremy Lin's offer sheet from the Houston Rockets a "ridiculous contract" to claiming that he gets blamed for everything that happens with the Knicks, Melo hasn't really been practicing what he's been preaching.

Jeremy Lin had a pretty crazy 2011-12 NBA season with the New York Knicks. He came out of nowhere and became the biggest star in the country—all within in a matter of days. So, it should come as no surprise that all of the Linsanity surrounding him got to his head. And, he admitted it during a recent interview with the Mercury News. "If I'm being honest," he said when asked if "Linsanity" got to his head, "in some ways, yes. I fought it every day. [Read More]

No surprise here, so we'll just cut right to the chase: Jeremy Lin is really glad that Tim Tebow will be playing in New York for the Jets next season. After Lin dropped 16 points in the fourth quarter to help the Knicks beat the 76ers last night, he was asked about the trade that the Jets made to bring Tebow to the Big Apple yesterday. And his response was nothing short of predictable. [Read More]

After a remarkable Jeremy Lin-led run that made them the toast of the NBA, the Knicks have lost 8 of their last 10 games. There's plenty of blame to go around, but while some within the organization are questioning superstar Carmelo Anthony, most of the fingers are being pointed at head coach Mike D'Antoni, according to several sources close to the situation.

Now that he's become super famous virtually out of nowhere, everybody has their own story about how they knew about Jeremy Lin way before the rest of the country. And that includes President Barack Obama.
During a sitdown with Grantland's Bill Simmons yesterday, the President talked about how he's been up on Lin for quite a few years now. "I knew about Jeremy before you did," he told Simmons, "or everybody else did, because Arne Duncan, my Secretary of Education, was captain of the Harvard team. [Read More]

New York Knick point guard Jeremy Lin is a one-man economic recovery that even Ben Bernanke couldn’t dream up in his Federal Reserve meetings. Lin-sanity has taken the country by storm and as a result created a spending frenzy that’s benefiting a broad range of companies, tax rolls and even the stock market.
Lin’s salary this season is a modest (by NBA standards) $800,000, but by some calculations, he’s turned into the $170 million man. The most tangible impact has been on the market cap of Madison Square Garden (MSG), whose stock has jumped 7% to close Thursday at $31.87 from its close at $29.77 on February 7th when Lin first entered the Knicks’ starting lineup.

The New York Knicks had us sighing and shouting “come on!” in front of our televisions for the majority of the game last night. Trailing by as much as 12 points in the fourth quarter, we couldn’t help but believe Linsanity had to roll on.
So, thanks to an impressive defensive effort from rookie Iman Shumpert, who came up with huge defensive stops late in the fourth, Lin was able to set himself up for the game winning three pointer that none of us expected. Absolutely crazy. Enjoy.

Despite the fact that the guy is still averaging less than eight points and three assists per game, Jeremy Lin is already causing the price of Knicks tickets to spike thanks to the impressive stats he's put up in the last two games. [Watch & Read More]
