I still hope Baron Davis can get back. That would give them 2 legit PGs.

Devils fan coming here in peace. This Lin kid is making me into a Knicks fan, and I'm normally not even a basketball fan. Just awesome.

Guess all he needed was a chance.

Great first step, love the way he drives to the rim.

my only concern is when Melo comes back,all the nice ball movement and player movement on offense stops.as for Lin,this kid is legit.its a shame he wasnt given a chance earlier in the year.Amare and Lin working the pick and roll together is going to be a thing of beauty.

Yeah the league is def happy about this story.

With him all over ESPN, it is bringing in a few extra fans. Esp with this win tonight over Kobe and the Lakers on ESPN.

Unbelievable! This kid has brought me back to basketball. What a beautiful thing when your team has an actual point. Look how different everything looks. How exciting. How artful. How amazing. How... you get the picture.

I'm still taken aback that D'Antoni didn't see this in practice.

I know they don't have much practice time but it shouldn't take a professional coach THIS long, to see he can play some.

The Knick players keep talking about that they saw this in practice.

Was the coach paying attention?

BTW, I believe Lin saved D'Antoni's job. If we lost to the Nets 4 games ago, I was almost positive D'ant was a goner.

Another Devils here to say that this Lin kid has made me a huge Knicks fan. What a game.

This Cinderella story is unreal.

I have been a Knick fan all my life, watch every game that doesn't intervene with NYR game. But this is the most exciting I have seen the Knicks in a long long time. You picked a right time to start watching.

Mind you I was young during our mid 90's Ewing days.

The only reason why GS and HOU cut him, was to make cap room for a Deandre/Dalembert. GS actually tried to get him back afterwards.

I go back as a Knick fan to the Frazier/Monroe championship team. What Lin is doing is something you expect maybe from a generational player. Frankly, I'm just stunned at the ease of how he's doing it. As the Knick PostGame pointed out, Lin is doing this within the flow of a team game. There is ball movement...this team is not standing around on offense.

I've watched casual for around 3 years, catching maybe a game a week. Finally got to my first game on Monday, haven't missed a game of the Lin Dynasty.

Should be amusing to see how many games after Anthony comes back he'll wait to start hogging the rock again. I imagine the first 3-4 games, he'll play it cool and let Lin run the show. Can't imagine that'll last, though.

It's Anthony that will be the issue, of course.
Brother, you know you and I have mostly agreed about the Knicks over the years.

But... I must admit that I did perhaps let myself hope (wish?) way too much for the best with the Melo trade - typical of my glass half full attitude since Slats actually made the right move and sold in '04. (Although when it finally went down, I absolutely excoriated Dolan for getting involved and costing the team unnecessary assets to get Melo.)

So, admitting that mistake, you know the best thing about the Lin phenomenon...? He's achieved such national, and even international, notoriety, that if it doesn't work with Lin and Melo on the same team, that star-****er Dolan may realize that Lin is the more important player.

Melo has shown flashes of the ability to play in a team system - and to be very dangerous doing so. But after a game or so, when it gets down to the final minutes, he always seem to feel the need to play hero ball again.

Now that Lin's here, if he comes back, plays that **** and the team loses as a result again...? Who do you think goes...?

I'm very curious to see the next couple of games.

Melo has to go. Maybe Denver will give us Gallo back?
