Lin returns to garden

 

Jeremy Lin was barely hanging on to an NBA job when he stepped on the floor at Madison Square Garden last February. He returns tonight having proven he’s a legitimate starter and sometimes star, capable of energizing a franchise and a fan base, a player who saved his team’s season and was rewarded with a lucrative contract. Linsanity was short but spectacular, and even the New York Knicks’ locker room is filled with Lin admirers. Yet on the court, his old team hasn’t missed him at all. “What he did was amazing. I mean, I was watching every game. He was hitting game-winners, he was doing all that. He was amazing,” point guard Raymond Felton said. “But it’s time to move on. We’re 18-5, whatever the record is, we’re 10-0 at home, so no need to talk about that no more.” – Associated Press
