The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.
From a faux-glow phenom to the storm that ravaged the area and an incredibly tragic school shooting, 2012 was anything but a quiet year in the Tri-State. As we prepare for 2013, CBSNewYork takes a look back at the most talked about stories of the year.
It’s hard to separate the Jeremy Lin — the man from the myth.
Invaders beware: You’re going to have to bring your best to the Garden floor if you wish to escape MSG with a victory.
In the end it was Lin, with 22 points and eight assists, leading the Rockets to victory. A familiar romp on the Garden court.
His old fans booed him. His old friend clobbered him. Otherwise, it was Linsanity all over again at Madison Square Garden.
So far this year, Lin certainly hasn’t shown much to make anyone think that the Knicks did the wrong thing by letting him go.
Cheer him, boo him, whatever — The bottom line is that Jeremy Lin has been a non-factor since leaving New York.
Linsanity was a short, but spectacular time in Knicks’ history. Even though he’s gone, the New York Knicks’ locker room is filled with Lin admirers.
Kyrie Irving put in a memorable performance as the Cavs gave the Knicks everything they could handle. New York escaped with a tight victory.
It’s goofy, tone-deaf and weird. In other words, a total airball.
The Knicks’ hot start on the court is paying dividends for the franchise’s merchandise sector. The league released its latest sales-rankings list on Wednesday, with the Knicks leading the team-sales category for the first time since December 2004.
Jeremy Lin doesn’t know if he’ll ever perform as well as he did during his charmed February with the New York Knicks last season. For now he’s content to be a key contributor on his new team.
For those of you out there that hadn’t seen enough from this Knicks team, now you have it. There was almost nothing missing from the Knicks’ win in San Antonio on Thursday night. There is no better win than that.
“I went into an absolute shell for a few months in New York,” Lin said. “I went through a phase when I didn’t want to talk to anybody. I didn’t want to talk to my friends. I didn’t want to give anybody close to me a chance to mess up our relationship.”
