“You can’t ask for a city or a fan base to embrace somebody more than they embraced me,” Lin said in a 4,300-word piece hitting newsstands today. “I know it’s kind of silly to talk about it with only two years under my belt in the league, but going in before free agency, I was like, ‘I want to play in front of these fans for the rest of my career.’ I really did.
“I really wanted to play in front of the Madison Square Garden fans for the rest of my career, because they’re just unbelievable.”
Is it safe to say that we have moved on from Lin yet?
I was happy when the team let him go. Melo was not wrong in calling his contract ridiculous. It was. Having seen Felton, Kidd and Prigioni play through the first two preseason games, I am confident in our trio at the PG spot. Felton has looked in shape and determined to not only prove his doubters wrong, but also to help this Knicks team to win under the radar – much like he is flying under the radar.
However, there are still fans and people across the country who ask me about Jeremy Lin and how the Knicks could let him walk.
My guess is that the Lin talk will fade away as the season gets started.
Let’s go Knicks!
