Carmelo Anthony called the contract that the Rockets offered Jeremy Lin "ridiculous", when asked by ESPN if he thought the Knicks would match it:
 
A team source tells ESPNNewYork.com’s Ian Begley that the third year of the Rockets’ offer — worth $14.8 million — makes it unlikely the Knicks would match. If the Knicks were to match the offer, they would also be subject to a luxury tax in the third year, bringing their total out-of-pocket cost for Lin to approximately $30 million in 2014-2015.
 
When asked by Newsday on Sunday if he thought Lin would be back with the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony was unsure but took a swipe at the Rockets’ contract offer to the point guard.
 
“It’s not up to me. It’s up to the organization to say that they want to match that ridiculous contract,” he told the paper.
 
Melo is back to being the man on the team Knicks, so he can take swipes now. He wasn't this arrogant when Lin took his shine during the season, while he was out injured, and the whole world was wondering if Melo could fit in with the way Jeremy Lin played. Linsanity is all over now I guesss, but there still are teams that would give the former Harvard star baller a nice check. The Knciks have Jason Kidd and Raymond Felton now, I doubt they will match the offer. They don't really need Jeremy Lin anymore.
