Jeremy Lin to go to Houston Rockets Because God Picked Tebow Over Him
Jeremy Lin exploded in popularity after a successful winning streak with the Knicks last season. Unfotunately, things started going downhill for Lin after former Denver Broncos Quarterback Tim Tebow, was traded to the Jets , which made New York the holiest city in sports. Then, Lin’s knee injury proved that God prefers Tebow. It only makes sense that Lin would flee to another city.
A report in The New York Post, citing a league source, said the Rockets were planning to offer Lin a backloaded deal worth roughly $30 million. According to the same source, the deal would pay Lin $5 million in the first season, $5.2 million in the second, and then would increase to as much as $10 million per year in the third and fourth seasons.
“Jeremy Lin’s an excellent player,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey told The Post. “We got to know him firsthand when he was with the Rockets early this season. We think he’d make a fantastic addition to our team.”
While both Lin and the Knicks are hoping for a reunion, sources have told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard that if any clubs offer Lin a backloaded contract that pays him an eight-figure salary in the third and fourth years, the Knicks could be hesitant to match the offer.
This will be a good move for Lin, who will be able to get the clear uninterrupted support of The Almighty instead not playing second fiddle to Tebow in New York.
Tebow Heads to the Jets. Is New York the “Holiest City in Sports?”
The most recent NFL and NBA seasons have been huge for fans of projecting culture wars onto individuals who get paid millions of dollars to play a game and stay in shape. Yesterday, former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was traded to the NY Jets because they now have Peyton Manning. Tebow must feel hurt that the Broncos would take a broken QB past his prime over a Heisman trophy winning QB who kind of did better than expected for a few games.
With Knicks star Jeremy Lin already in NYC, this makes it the holiest town in all of pro sports.
More importantly, Tebow and Lin have the potential to become the dynamic duo of sports memes. After just one season of both in the spotlight, we got the boring “Tebowing” meme and the equally lazy “let’s make everything a pun of Lin” meme.
Hopefully, this tea-up will inspire sports headlines to new heights like, “New York has the Mandate of Heaven.”
