Jenopogi commented on The Jeremy Lin Knicks era was fun while it lastedHear, hear . . . I never got interested in NBA again after Michael Jordan retires. Yes, there was Kobe - OK i watch some, then there was Lebron - wow lot of drama, still NBA is like something to check if there are no other things to do. Then I was on a business trip and one of my colleages says - hey, heard of Linsanity? You say what? Linsanity!... uh-huh. Then he pulls out some laptop and do some search.. Ok, interesting, I check it out when I am back in the hotel. Whoa! what happens next was I get hooked in Linsanity. Watching You-Tube was not enought, I bought NBA Leauge Pass to follow him. I started to know more about the Knicks, I know guys I dont hear about like Jeffries, Novak, Fields, JR Smith, Toney Douglas, Bill Walker, Jerome Jordan, etc.. etc.. I even ordered online and waited for my Lin Jersey #17. For me, anyone who does not know Knicks and Lin are out of touch people - hehehe.. that's how crazy I am (even my non-basketball colleauges at least heard of JLin). Anyways, call me bandwagon fan (yeah I know, I started to spend hours on discussion boards during Linsanity - heck till now, though I toned down a bit), but I am jumping to the Rockets. Yeah, yeah.. good riddance to me "real" knick fans. The point is: JLin makes the Knicks the team to watch, root for and be attached to. With all the post-season drama and letting Lin go, I dont care if knicks win or loose. I am rooting now that rookies like Lamb, DoMo, Jones, White, 2nd yr player Patterson or oldest K-Mart (@ 29), heck even Asik can mesh well with Lin and give us an exciting ball game. Heck, Rockets win or loose, I still gonna maintain my NBA leauge pass to continue watching JLin.
