Jerry Stackhouse put on his NBA veteran cap in an interview with Sports Illustrated and opined that the Knicks were right not to match the Rockets offer for Jeremy Lin and Houston may regret the move in two or three years.
"I think it’s too much, I think they're gonna look back three years from now and say we maybe could have used this to go out and get another player," Stackhouse said. ... "I think it’s going to hamper them." He added that "the cable man", James Dolan, thought the offer "was a little bit too much" and indeed he believes it was. Raymond Felton is "the better point guard right now," Stack added.
