“Linsanity” is over — at least in New York City where it all started with a bang back in February.

Jeremy Lin, the Asian sensation who lit up the NBA coming off the bench for the Knicks, is now a Houston Rocket. The Knicks passed on Lin before the Tuesday deadline rather than match the staggering $25 million offer sheet from the Rockets.

Sports purists say Lin isn’t worth $25 million, which includes a balloon payment of $15 million in the 3rd year of his contract.

Ironically, Houston dumped Lin before the start of last season. Many Red Nation fans don’t ever remember him in a Rockets uniform. Lin was claimed off waivers by the Knicks in December — and given a bargain basement salary of $600,000.
