Welcome to “Lindependence Day” because “New York is gone with the Lin” and Houston has him now.

“It’s like a blessing from God,” Lin said during a Thursday afternoon news conference. “I’m glad to be back with this organization”

Lin is back where he was less than a year ago. He leaves behind a backlash from Knicks fans. There are music parodies on YouTube reminding us how the Rockets are going to “suck” next season.

On Lin’s Facebook page some Knicks fans are upset and some comments even have a bit of a racist tone. New York fans should blame Knicks management. They decided not to match the Rockets $25 million offer.    

The “linconomics” of this are crazy. A little more than 200 days ago, the Rockets said goodbye to Lin and his $9,295 game paycheck. Next season Lin will earn $114,228 for each game--that’s a raise!

Let’s hope Lin is not a bust and continues the “Linsanity” he had with New York.

 Although here’s a bit “Linsane” Irony: He recently signed a mega-deal to endorse Volvos. The Rockets play home games in the Toyota Center.
