Goodbye New York, Hello Houston!
After weeks of speculation, Tuesday night the New York Knicks announced it would not match the Houston Rockets' offer.
Emotions have been running high with Knicks fans. To quote writer Ian O'Connor at ESPNNewYork.com, "Jim Dolan just made one of the dumbest moves of his basketball life"...
Meanwhile, Lin remains a gentleman, thanking the Knicks and showing enthusiasm for Houston.
Twitter comments: (@JLin7)
"Extremely excited and honored to be a Houston Rocket again!! #RedNation" "Much love and thankfulness to the Knicks and New York for your support this past year...easily the best year of my life #ForeverGrateful"

July 5, 2012
This afternoon Jeremy Lin agreed to a multi-million dollar offer sheet by the Houston Rockets. Numerous sources say that the Houston Rockets' offer is reportedly a four year $28.8 million deal with Lin. The contract cannot be signed until after the NBA moratorium ends next Wednesday, July 11, 2012, then the New York Knicks have three days to match the Rockets' offer or let him go.
This story is evolving day by day, and in some cases hour by hour.

Have you heard this before? “Love or Business, you have to choose.” The message is direct - you have to decide what you value more, something/one you love or your work/business. Actually, there is a more factual statement – Love is Good Business.
February is the month of love. A great deal of thought and energy will be spent on expressions of love, usually for a romantic partner.

How do you harness the immense power of love in your business? You’ve guessed it – love what you do. Wait, you say, I work for money, I don’t love my work. Or, I used to like my job but over the years it’s gotten boring; now I am doing it because I can’t think of what else I can do to earn a living. Uh oh, we need to talk. It is highly unlikely that you are going to be able to excel in your business if you are just going through the motions.

How can you love your business and become more...
