When a fan favorite or star leaves LA or New York you never really hear from them again.
Just with the Lakers you have Mark Madsen, Ronny Turiaf, Travis Knight, Luke Walton,
At your player choices. Come on now. Madsen and Turiaf and Walton? These guys barely did anything with the Lakers and aren't even comparable to what Lin did in NY.
And when Shaq left the Lakers he was still a big star and it wasn't because he left LA that his career died, it's because he got old and hurt and eventually just became fat and couldn't dominate as he did.
I still say they need to keep Lin and just trade away one or two of the 4 players that will bring them to luxury tax in 3 years, maybe even amnesty Chandler or something, if anything these guys are trade baits. Hell I'd even trade Melo at this point.
