NBA Free Agency: Jeremy Lin is a Houston Rocket - as a Jazz fan how do you feel?

The New York Knicks did not match the "ridiculous" (thank you Carmelo Anthony) offer sheet Jeremy Lin signed with the Houston Rockets, and as a result, he is returning to the Western Conference. He has played well in spurts in the Eastern Conference. He's now going to be a primary focus every game he starts. And he's going to be going up against the Chris Paul / Russell Westbrook / Tony Parker / Stephen Curry / Jimmer Fredette (I see you, BYU fans) point guards of this conference every night.

He is going to have the keys to the team. And he has shown that in that situation he can be deadly. We know from personal experience when we faced the Knicks when they were down two starters -- and he gave us the business.

Yao Ming sized image here. Thanks to Basketball-Reference.com for the awesome stats!

All that said, how do you feel about him joining our hated rivals the Houston Rockets? We have a blood feud with them, and a hilariously one-sided streak going against them and trashing them in the playoffs. Linsanity? Or nothing to really be Linterested in?
