The point distribution among them is impressive, double digit scoring for the entire starting line-up and most of the bench. Nice to see all-star ballhogs (Amare & Melo) under 20 points each and still win by blowout.

The departure of D'Antoni has made all the difference...As I said time and time again, D'Antoni's offense and Melo's style of play simply could not co-exist.

Wow, I'm impressed by Lin's character and humbleness. He takes time out of his busy schedule to call the ESPN reporter that got fired for using a racial slur against him in an article, and arrange time to have lunch with him.

Not only did he not bear any grudge towards the reporter, Lin takes the time to have lunch with the dude.

Big thumbs up to J. Lin.

“@alanhahn: That is some major news that explains a lot of the secrecy over the last week. Lin is essentially out for the season unless Knicks advance.”

“@nyknicks: #Knicks Injury Update: Jeremy Lin will be out approx 6 weeks after an MRI revealed small chronic meniscus tear. Lin will speak w media soon”

I hope they miss the playoffs; they don't deserve it. I'd much rather see a team that is overachieving due to heart make it to playoffs than a team that is underachieving because of selfishness......Think Warriors in '07...

Think that changes things? Isn't he a free agent at the end of the season?

Due to the new CBA rules, the most any team can offer Lin as a restricted FA would be around $5 million per season.....Given Lin's play and the global attention he has brought to the Knicks this season, it's likely that the Knicks will match any offer for him.

I mean does it change the deal they give him? He misses the entire last third of the season and needs a new contract. I know in the NHL that would cut a player's potential value if they have an injury filled contract year.

Lin doesn't make "great" plays. But he sure sells tickets. So teams would sign up for ticket sales.

Stupid; Way too early for talks of a documentary. What if he comes back next year after knee surgery and ends up being nothing but a bust. This is putting far too much pressure on him right now, as I don't feel he has full established himself. He is not in a stable position quite yet.

agree to what trdood said

but regardless of injury of not, i dont see how they wouldnt resign him, provided hes still playing technically his "second" year in the NBA, first as a starter

with or without injury this season, he was due for a raise but despite all that the NYK organization isn't that stupid to offer him a ludaris contract, and Lin knows that and hes expressed to the organization many times that he loves it

maybe im bias but i dont think he'll get any less despite an injury, lin just had surgery last week and hes on the road to recovery and reports acutally say hes ahead of schedule and even he himself is targetting the first round as a potential for his return, just be aware this injury isnt to the extent of brandon roy's injury

only way i see him not being resigned is if somehow knicks land nash.. but hows that possible lol
