Recommended reading: Jeremy Lin’s “Rocket Man” November GQ cover story by the estimable OG NYC blogger, Will Leitch. Leitch drove with Lin from Manhattan to Bristol, CT where he was taping an ESPN commercial segment (proof that he’s made it into the pantheon of world’s most recognizable athletes). They talked about everything that’s changed in Jeremy’s life, his brother and sister-in-law’s couch, and—of course—what happened with the Knicks. 

It’s gonna be tough without him on the Knicks, but I have a hard time with those fans that have dropped the Knicks simply because Dolan and Co. dropped Lin. I’ll root for them regardless of their owner and players. Yes, I’d prefer we kept Lin (this is an understatement), but they’re my team. Maybe it’s because I’m also a Bills fan that I’m so stubborn about this, but if you really want to call yourself a fan, you stick with your team even when they make atrocious and borderline evil moves like not matching Houston’s offer sheet and leaving a befuddled Jeremy headed to Texas.

James Dolan is an awful owner and a more awful person (still not as awful as Donald Sterling though), but I don’t cheer for James Dolan; I cheer for the Knicks. It’s an important distinction. 

That’s a Harvard expression, right?

"Goin to the ESPYS…trying the bowtie for the 1st time… The “how to get into harvard” glasses might be making a comeback lol” - Jeremy Lin (@JLin7)


Perhaps in spite of Stephen A Smith’s diatribe on Monday morning, Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson has stated that Jeremy Lin will not play in game 5 against the Heat on Wednesday. Woodson said that Lin is not physically ready for action yet. 

The Knicks have lost Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis to major knee injuries (Davis is expected to be out for a year) in this series. Everybody’s favorite, Mike Bibby will start on Wednesday night.

Due to the fact that I was at the gym at the time, I only heard bits and pieces of Stephen A. Smith’s rant about Lin’s inactivity in this series. Smith believes that if Lin is able to get shots off in practice, then should be able to play for maybe 12-15 minutes off the bench for the Knicks. It is an all hands on deck situation for the Knicks; they are the walking wounded, but how effective is Lin going to be if he’s just at 70%? We all saw how effective Lin was against the Heat in mid February at the height of Linsanity…
