I repeated the contentions of Time magazine that suggested that Lin's presence could be responsible for the reasons.

You've said that that's ridiculous, and offered that it's win-loss.

If you want to refute the contention, then it's easy for you to prove. All I have is one data point, February 2012 for one spike in asset value.

You have multiple years with multiple win/loss records correlated with asset rise or fall.

If you want to step in and say that Time is wrong here, and shouldn't have mentioned the rise in asset value in a Lin article, do the work.

Quick thought Time is a weekly magazine based out of NY, their goal to sell copies... Lin is a sexy story, draws interest.

I know they have quite a few opinion pieces in that magazine.
Its like how every magazine makes a top ___ list... It draws attention even though for the most part its speculation.

I mean logic does say winning = financial success, not the likability of character.

V. Dwight - He's still one of the best big men in the NBA and in his prime
N. Horford - All-star type player in his prime on a very good contract making 12 mil per year for 3 more years.
