Exactly How Stupid Are the Knicks for Letting Jeremy Lin Leave?


Slate executive editor Josh Levin hands it to the Knicks for their stupidity in letting former Harvard bball player Jeremy Lin head to Houston. “The Knicks prove that no matter how much the league tries to help its least-competent franchises, stupidity always finds a way,” he writes. “New York was smart to pull Lin off the scrap heap, but it took James Dolan’s franchise just a few steps to transform good fortune into the morale-killing eviction of the player who’d revitalized a long-moribund team.” At least we can look at the bright side: New York’s loss is our benefit.
