    because if you haven't noticed, Tinmac has some inner demon where his only respite is posting pathetic threads on Clutchfans.

    Check out all his recent threads. The majority of his past 10-15 threads are 1 or 2 stars.

    The guy is a legitimate joke and more and more people are realising. It's astonishing he still has new thread posting abilities.

    Jeremy Lin is the Harvard graduate professional athlete with a niche following. I find it too much but you have to be really sick to berate me as a Lin fan because I'm not. I think the guy is over rated.

    New York is the financial center of the United States. Deal with it.

    OP is clearly an idiot.

    What the other poster meant in that thread was: Lin brought a lot of cash for the Rockets because of his popularity domestically and internationally, and the reason why NY could let Lin go was that NY is the center or the nation, so even if Lin leaves they can still sell tickets and jerseys, while Houston would become a dump Houston is not NY. It was so obvious that every person with decent IQ could understand what the original poster was saying, yet this idiot here couldn't and decided to make a new thread showing how stupid he is to all the clutchfans. You are really making yourself a moron OP.

    Lin is bringing so much money to Houston . They use money he brings to build football stadiums and dog parks .
    I heard they got new monkeys at the zoo because of him

    So you don't live here, and based on your comments you have no idea what it's like to live in New York either. Please stop commenting on the respective economies and qualities of life between both places. I agree with you, there are pros and cons to both, but most of what you have said is wrong. Don't worry, as you get older you will learn to stop putting your foot in your mouth so often. It's been a learning process for me too.

    Lin leaving would unravel the very fabric of the universe. Fire would rain down from the heavens, the earth would split open, and the dead would rise and walk the earth. Probably, it's just a guess.

    Lin actually did save me money. I was waiting till the second round to go see us play the Spurs after my finals were finished. Thanks for nothing Jermy!
