"Drinking the Kool-Aid" is a metaphor commonly used in the United States and Canada that refers to a person or group's unquestioning belief in an ideology, argument, or philosophy without critical examination. The phrase typically carries a negative connotation when applied to an individual or group. The basis of the term is a reference to the November 1978 Jonestown Massacre, where members of the Peoples Temple were said to have committed suicide by drinking a "Kool-Aid"-like drink laced with cyanide.

Now lets examine Flavor. The Flavor of this Kool-Aid is Jeremy Lin. It seems many of the long suffering Knick fans are Gulping down the Flavor of Jeremy Lin.
It is certainly understandable why. However, for every Two "Gulpers" there are Two sippers and ONE not drinking at all. I will go on record as being a "sipper."
I am not ashame of being a sipper and I refuse to join in when I feel reserved.. just to be one of the guys! However, I am still a drinker, even though I am Just sipping. Lets look at other sippers, Gulpers and Not drinkers views.

Well, its true. 1) They let Lin go to try and make a run at DeAndre. 2) Lin wasn’t going to get the same oppurtunity he has in New York playing behind Ellis and Curry.

Can't decide. Is the guy next a Sipper or not drinker?
