Lin, Knicks in like Flynn again!

Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks 
are back to playing solid basketball since 
former head coach Mike D'Antonio resigned.
Jeremy Lin and the resurgent New York Knicks are back in the national spotlight after ripping off three consecutive wins since veteran head coach Mike Woodson replaced former leader Mike D’Antoni just over a week ago.

I know that a modest trio of wins isn’t saying much, but New York looks like a totally different team than the one that went belly up in D’Antoni’s final days – and Lin has responded as well.

I back-to-back games against Indiana, Lin scored 32 total points on 9-for-17 shooting from the field while dishing out 11 assists – and more importantly – committing just five turnovers

For the season, Lin is averaging a fine, 14.7 points and 6.3 assists per game while shooting an impressive 45.5 percent from the field. Whether you love Lin, like most everyone on the planet – or don’t care for him very much, like the idiotic Floyd Mayweather – one thing is now crystal clear NBA hoops fans … Jeremy Lin is undoubtedly legitimate – and has as much potential as any young floor leader in the game today.
