Isiah Thomas Was Not Sold On Knicks Matching Jeremy Lin's Offer; Rockets Now Know They Made A Good Move

Most tellingly, perhaps, Isiah Thomas is close to Dolan, Wesley, Grunwald, Woodson and others with the Knicks, according to sources. The former Knicks president and coach is still a very influential voice in Dolan's ear, and those behind the scenes say he is lukewarm toward Lin.

With Thomas' history of bad decisions as the Knicks coach and team president, and hearing that Lin was not worth that amount probably means that Lin will out perform his contract and be a multi-year All-Star while playing for the Rockets.
