    Honestly the date on that tweet is the most shocking thing of all.

    Yang Gang vs LOFs could create an extremely dangerous situation.

    Jerome James made:

    $29K for every point he scored in the NBA
    $125K for every game he played in the NBA
    $9.4K for every minute he played in the NBA

    He made $563K/hr while in NBA action.

    Most amazing thing is 2 different teams game him ridiculous contracts.

    Yang's first big gaffe -- that tweet looked like a Lin finger-rolled airball.

    I am a big supporter of Andrew Yang, although I am not a fan of his running for NYC Mayor. I believe his ideas are more impactful on the federal level and that being NYC mayor would take him out of the 2024 Presidential race.

    That said, I think he's right about the Knicks. James Dolan is horrible.

    Ironically, not bringing Airemy back was probably the only thing Dolan got right in his long and illustrious failure of a career as an owner. Although considering Knicks suck regardless, it would not have mattered any ways.

    I am going to give Yang a pass here. He is not a student of the game and let his LOFness get in the way of objectivity.

    Still support him as a candidate.

    It still pisses me off that Cruz bitched out 1v1 hoops with Yang

    if he wants to win New York, he needs to stop talking about the Knicks Basketball cause that's Loser talk.

    It’s not Houston. NYC loved Lin. Lin gave them the only hopes in years and they saw the rerun of past miserable years after Lin left. I don’t think it’s a gaffe. :eek:

    Even though he won Cruz looked pretty rough in his game with Kimmel and that was two years ago. It looked like he needed a few days to recover from that.

    Actually, that was Morey's fault.
    The infamous "poison pill" contract was a ruse he created from the new CBA.

    Pretty much.

    It's not like the Knicks going all in on Lin (the last feel good story to come out of that franchise... 10 years ago) would have made things any worse than they are now.

    I'm not gonna judge any Knicks fan for having weird takes or irrational feelings when it comes to basketball. Those people have suffered enough.
