More bad luck. DAM...
MDA "rode him like a Secretariat" during Linsanity. And knowing Lin's work ethic, he wouldve played himself with a busted knee without ever saying much.
Lin was hurt during Linsanity but he kept on playing til he just couldnt play anymore!
Check out the tremendouns elevation he has against Wizard and the tentativeness in his dunk vs Mavs.
Huge difference between those two dunks!

Davis might not last but we need guys to step up like TD and Davis.
Melo has to keep it up.
Maybe we can sign Mike James and bring him up from the Dleague where he is averaging 21 ppg and 5 assists.

STAT & Lin were the following:
1. Inspirational (leaders)
2. Scoring threats
3. Prone to drawing contact and causing fouls
THEY WERE NOT DEFENDERS.
We need to:
Stress DEFENSE as a priority which means STARTING OUR BEST DEFENDERS.
This does not equal Laundry Folds.
It means Jorts, Shump, Jordan, (until JJ) etc...
That must be our staple.
Other scorers like Melo, Novak, JR need to replace Lin's clutchness and Melo is looking compromised. We need closers.
SOmeone needs to replace STAT's offensive presence.
Jorts et al. should do that.
BD needs to step it up as a facilitator.
Aw, I'm so sorry to read about Jeremy Lin's knee.
I hope he recovers 100% and comes back next season!!
Thank you for everything you did for the Knicks, Jeremy!

I wonder how dantoni is for the blame or our medical staff or just bad luck
