08:09 AM ET 02.15 | Beyond the question of whether Jeremy Lin can keep this up is whether the Knicks can keep him around. Yes, if Lin continues to perform at anything close to the level he's displayed so far, New York will have the means and the inclination to retain him for next year -- and most likely, beyond. Here's the deal: By virtue of the Golden State Warriors signing Lin to a two-year contract before waiving him in December, Lin becomes a restricted free agent after this season. Under typical circumstances, Lin would be eligible to receive a qualifying offer from the Knicks worth approximately $1.1 million. These, obviously, are not typical circumstances. ... In Lin's case, the maximum qualifying offer he could get under these new rules would be about $2.7 million.

Lol, are you high? Next three championships? Come on Lost, and that moron Mayweather needs to quit being a damn puss and fight manny.

Yeah... he's been phenomenal...

...for 6 entire games.

Seriously people. Lets hold off on the statue and renaming the entire NBA after him. No one likes a Cinderella story more than I do... but this "Linsanity" really is a bit insane.
