Jeremy Lin Returns to New York to Face the Knicks

We’re only 1/4 of the way through the season, but it sure looks like the Knicks made all the right moves in the offseason.

Jason Kidd – his boozy summer accident has been forgotten under a wave of 3-pointers – is thriving. Rasheed Wallace, technicals and all, can still make it rain. You know what they say about the oldest – also the wisest!

And yes, New York’s successful offseason moves (so far) include dumping Jeremy Lin for Raymond Felton. Maybe that means Carmelo Anthony will be a GM one day!

Lin returns to MSG tonight for the first time since the Knicks let him sign with Houston, and for the first half, I’ll be wearing my Lin t-shirt (around 8:25 I’ll switch into my Sanchez smedium). The Rockets lost to the lowly Raptors Sunday, and Lin struggled, making 3-of-9 and finishing with just seven points, three turnovers and two assists. Wonder if he had the Knicks on his mind.

The Knicks are 10-point favorites, and I expect the Knicks to roll, with JR Smith and Melo (if he plays) attempting no fewer than 40 shots combined.
