  • Knicks don't match offer...

    HOUSTON (AP) — The New York Knicks decided that Linsanity would have only a one-season run on Broadway.
    Lin is headed back to Houston after the Knicks decided on Tuesday that they wouldn’t match the Rockets’ three-year, $25 million offer for the restricted free agent.
    The 23-year-old point guard, who went undrafted out of Harvard, became an international phenomenon and the biggest story in sports during one dazzling month in the Big Apple. But the Knicks decided keeping the show in town was too costly.
    “Extremely excited and honored to be a Houston Rocket again!!” Lin posted on his Twitter account.

    “Let’s put this in proportion,” games chairman Sebastian Coe told reporters. “This has not, nor will it, impact on the safety and security of these games, that of course is our No. 1 priority.”
