NYT: Surprisingly, Offense Is a Knicks Weakness

A snippet from my latest entry for the New York Times Off the Dribble Blog. But a funny thing happened on the way to the newly renovated Madison Square Garden.

Knicks recall Lin, Jordan from D-League

It’s being bellowed across the Twitterscape that recent D-League castoffs Jeremy Lin and Jerome Jordan will be recalled back to the big leagues. While I’d love to tell you Lin and Jordan turned a career corner during their Erie fortnight, really the Knicks needed two more bodies to conduct full schrimmages — why with half the squad nursing nagging injuries, Josh Harrellson expected to miss at least six weeks with a fractured wrist, and Baron Davis reportedly ready for burn. A quick look at Lin’s career numbers in Erie that he’ll easily go down as the greatest player in that …continue reading
