The New York Knicks
Warriors didn’t need another high scoring guard
They needed a big man. Had to cut him to make an offer sheet for Deandre Jordan. I’d make the same choice every day of the week. Hello Jeremy Lin. Knicks have a big man. They needed a high scoring guard. Now they have one.
Interesting story on JereMelo, both need to give each other some Vday love, but not too much, especially jeremy lin. If melo and amare and tyson buy into letting jeremy lead anf feed, i say watch out. D’antoni system run/gun team…. or it could just collapse. I hope it works.
Knicks at Raptors: The Linsanity show continues. Love watching this feel good story. Guy’s amazing outta nowhere.
Which undrafted D-Leaguer came out and scored as much in his first 4 starts? He came out in the Nets game where Carmelo and Amare were still playing and the Knicks were losing. He came off the bench and turned that game around. His race does make it a story as well. The press rarely addresses the negative impact being Asian American had on his career and how he worked past that with sheer determination and skill.
The New York Knicks players never put up these numbers. Not a single person. the Knicks start the season with high hopes, they play like crap, their 2 best players are unavailable for an extended period and a guy from the D league comes in and averages 27 pts and 8 assists a game, leading them to a 5 game winning streak. That’s never happend and it’s happening in NY, that makes it a story. Add the Asian/Harvard thing and it’s a bigger story. But it’s a story first for what he’s done and second for who he is, not vice versa.
Jeremy Lin is legit. The Knicks Are Rolling I think Rondo would suck in pick up ball but put him in a game. different animal. Same with Lin. People were intrigued but never really give him a chance. The Knicks represented the perfect storm of opportunity. It’s hard to fake being that effective for 5 games in a row. take that from a guy who’s been paid to play!
why would Lin go to the Knicks bench? He’s not going to the bench unless Baron gets healthy. And maybe not even then. They should just release Baron, he’s not the good soldier type to play a back up role. but, of course he’s not going to play at this level and the Knicks arent’ going to win every game, but Lin is their starter for the forseable future and deserves a long look. NY has no other point guards. Lin was fortunate that Amare and ‘melo were hurt. Melo is a ball hog and Amare doesn’t pick and roll. Lin and Chandler are great together.
The thing is that the Knicks are playing hard. They are outhustling and out rebounding. Chandler is rebounding and blocking. This is how the new york knicks should be playing.
Thank goodness Jeremy Lin wasn’t on Knicks last year
Dolan would have included him in Melo deal
Actually, Lin was not traded. He was waived
first by the Warriors, then by the Rockets. The Knicks picked him up from waivers and sent down to the D league, where on Jan. 20, he scored a triple double and was called back up. Amazing performance tonight!!
I call knicks ny 3… Linsanity ignites, kobe
fizzles. hopefully llamma and bynum got gassed last night, so the knicks bigs can bang back.
Knicks Vs Lakers

Kobe likes to go off in that stage
A tough call. Linsanity still in fever pitch, amare won’t be back, though. Gasol and bynum gonna be tough for Knicks, with their big guys out. containing kobe is gonna be the test. Gonna say a close game, Knicks by 3.
$188 and up for a tix in the 400′s section
for tonight’s Lakers vs Knicks. Kobe plays ridiculous in MSG this one should be good folks.
why dont any knicks let lin crash with them?
im sure there’s a spare bedroom in the lineup somewhere. i remember when ken caminiti signed with the padres he stayed at greg vaughn’s house. or maybe it was phil nevin.
Knicks now look like a balanced team
The kind of team they had before the Melo trade with Felton running the point, Gallo and Chandler on the perimeter and Amare in the paint. Except now it’s Lin at PG, Fields and Novak taking the shots and Chandler grabbing rebounds and getting easy dunks from Lin. Lesson to all GMs: Don’t blow up a team for one player. Especially a shoot-first, me-first player like Melo. Everyone agrees he’s a great scorer, but he doesn’t make his teammates better or add to team chemistry.
so it seems the knicks are a much better Team without melo and amare. at last the other guys are gettin a chance to play some ball instead of standin around and watchin
