Without offering a lot of detail, NBA insider Alex Kennedy let fly that “rumblings from league sources” point to a possible Jeremy Lin return to New York, the Knicks and Madison Square Garden — site of the unforgettable and transcendent Linsanity moment back in 2012.
Some Lin fans, most of whom originally galvanized around the talented guard while he was wearing a Knicks uniform for those 35 indelible games, were intrigued by the possibility. “Big believer in Lin and Melo as clashing yin and yangs that can make something great together, even with friction,” says fan yuvilio. But there was a lot of this, too: “I don’t want any part of Jeremy Lin. Not even a little bit,” writes Knick fan Crispy Porridge. One fan thinks Lin’s too good for the Knicks, saying “taking an offer with the Knicks would render Lin’s Harvard degree null and void!” Kennedy’s tweet seemed about equally commented on by passionate Lin fans and by passionate Knicks fans. Both sets seem mostly to agree on one thing: Lin and the Knicks would be better off without each other.
There have been rumblings from league sources that the Knicks may pursue free agent Jeremy Lin this summer. No word what they would offer.
