    I was never so happy to see a player I really like go - and that's for two reasons... Let's hope this thread is not premature.

    Just wasn't the right fit for you. Really respect your character and beliefs. You have got to "get it together" on the basketball court. Maybe the right system will do the trick.

    He's a good guy, had some bright spots but ultimately never really fit with this team. Going to Philly will be better for him and for us. We are trying to win a title and Lin still needs to develop his game. Perfect situation in Philly.

    Good bench player, but he's got to clean up on those bonehead errors to get to the next level. And to the good LOFs, its been nice having you guys here. To the idiot LOF/LOHs, GTFO!

    Good guy, inconsistent but good player, attracts a horrible fan base. Have fun in Philly

    I like you. You are a good guy, but it didn't work out. Best of luck. Just don't kill us next time we meet.

    Jeremy Lin you'll be miss...kinda.

    I'll still watch some of your games.

    But I won't be rooting for you when you face the Rockets.

    Goodluck!

    Thanks for all the effort you gave and hanging in there through all the ups and downs. Unfortunately, it just didn't work out as good fit. Hopefully you find success in your next team and your lunatic fans don't drive your next team's fan base insane.

    Lin was good but overpaid. Hope he stays in the NBA for a few more years.

    Love him or hate him, he's a big reason the team is where it's at. I'm a firm believer that he's a big reason Harden agreed to sign an extension as he made the Rockets media relevant in a year where they had no other star power. I'm not sure Harden would have signed a max extension for a team like the bobcats with no buzz factor.

    Also without Lin who was a major contributor 2 years ago we wouldn't have snuck into the 8 seed (he only needed to be worth 1 win that year to be difference maker) and wouldn't have been relevant enough to get Dwight. Regardless of the assets it will cost to unload ultimately a bad contract, I think he was a net positive on the organization.

    I like Lin, a lot.

    The man is humble with passion. Good player but unfortunate to be on the same team with Harden, who also needs the ball and has little defense.

    Lin will be a solid starter with some of the issues solved. Best luck, buddy.

    Great guy, hated the baggage you bring with you and the drama you bring to CF.

    Will kind of miss it too though :eek:

    I loved him as a person. I was indifferent as to his play. I am thrilled his fans can go torture another fan base. I feel bad that he has attracted the type of fans that you would expect for Justin Bieber.
