    Not under the CBA - you have to trade something that *actually exists.*

    On this day I even have agreement with SamFisher.

    Perhaps there is hope for the Middle East!

    Best trade in the history of sports forums! The only way I would have been more impressed is if Morey figured out a way to get them to take DaDakota in the deal too.

    Sorry, DD. Couldn't help myself.

    To the LOFs Among Us:

    Let me state right off the bat that I do like Jeremy Lin. He’s an easy guy to root for and a solid character guy with a nice backstory. Lin seems to have handled any adversity thrown his way with a measure of class, and the positive support he receives from Rockets fans, Knicks fans, and the Asian-American community as a whole is well deserved. Lin is a good basketball player, capable of impacting a game on any given night. He is also a player with his share of flaws.

    With Lin’s departure I anticipate a certain segment of this forum’s voices to gradually fall silent. The thought of that brings me joy.

    I am not talking about those who are simply loyal fans of Jeremy Lin. I am talking about LOF’s, and we all know whom you are. I anticipate your departure with a huge sense of relief. I look forward to once again being able to discuss the merits or shortcomings of a certain coach or player without having the entire conversation derailed by your rabid and irrational defense of Lin, or by your mindless accusations that certain coaches and players are at fault for whatever negatives are associated with Lin’s performance on the court.

    You have been like termites, swarming into otherwise valid discussions and chewing away at their foundations until they collapse under their own weight. You have hijacked threads on numerous topics, somehow turning them into a false and bizarre sideshow of JLin vs The World. And as much as I admittedly do admire Jeremy Lin and acknowledge the uphill battle he has fought as an Asian American in the NBA, let’s not overplay that hand. The NBA is full of guys who have fought tremendous adversity just to survive, guys that did not have the advantage of growing up in the kind of stable and loving home that Lin seems to come from. Harping on Lin’s struggles and carrying that chip on your shoulders only diminishes their real value.

    So — goodbye.

    I wish you well, and I hope one day you will accept that we are all just guests on forums like these. We don’t own the place or use our own resources to keep it running. I hope the next place you visit welcomes you with open arms.
