Congrats to the USA Women’s Basketball Team on their Gold win.
This is their SEVENTH consecutive win in the Olympics.
The most won by a women’s team.
In ANY sport.
Imma need to know WHY NBC just said that in the past 20 years no one has done more for American sport than the US soccer team. What happen to these ladies? What tradition of excellence the women soccer team has over these ladies? Who makes people famous and makes people aware of their greatness? Psst the media. And whats the difference why the soccer team has been embraced even tho women’s soccer is having a hard time even keeping a fucking league alive whereas women’s basketball is thriving and doing better every year? Why… the white people overwhelming the soccer team vs the mostly black people in basketball. And our white supremacist media, including NBC.
“My 5 year old Naim was devastated by the Knicks deciding NOT to match Jeremy Lin’s offer sheet from the Houston Rockets, the video reached many viewers and also reached Jeremy Lin. Jeremy was so touched by the original video that he decided to reach out to us and offer a skype virtual meet with Naim. Naim was so shy :) he made me do all the talking. Thanks again Jeremy hopefully we’ll see you at the bb game when we welcome you back to The Garden.”
“Still support the Knicks!” - Jeremy <— one awesome man!

Jeremy Lin signs three-year offer sheet with Houston Rockets
It’s your move, New York Knicks.
Jeremy Lin has signed a three-year offer sheet with the Houston Rockets, according to a source close to the talks. The deal is worth a little more than $25 million — $5 million in the first year, $5.225 million in the second year and $14.8 million in the third year. The Knicks have three days to match the Rockets’ offer.
Initial reports had the Rockets offering Lin a four-year deal for around $28 million. That deal included salaries of more than $9 million in each of the last two years, which would be a big hit on the Knicks’ cap. Still, the organization seemed intent on matching.
“They will match any offer on Lin up to $1 billion,” a source told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein last week.
It’s not clear, however, if the new deal changes that thinking since the third year of the current deal carries an even bigger cap hit.
Houston had a verbal agreement with Lin before the team emerged as a serious suitor for Dwight Howard. The Rockets will use the amnesty clause on forward Luis Scola, sources told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, creating salary-cap space to take on bad contracts from the Orlando Magic. But the Lin offer sheet and an identical offer to Bulls center Omer Asik complicate the financial details of any trade with Orlando.
Lin, a restricted free agent, made $788,000 last season when he averaged 14.6 points, 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 35 games with 25 starts before his campaign was cut short because of surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee.
But in the 35 games he was healthy, Lin went from an end-of-the-bench afterthought to an international phenomenon. The undrafted guard out of Harvard, who was cut twice in the preseason (once by the Rockets) and played in the D-League, set the league on fire in February, leading the Knicks to seven consecutive wins. He scored at least 20 points in nine of 10 games during that stretch.
