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 league’s history. The dude averaged a triple double!
…. Sorry, there was a chunk of sneezed Corn Flake on my screen over the “GP” column. My B.
Still, a triple double in your first D-League game? That has to be promising, right? No? Ok.
Jordan, meanwhile, didn’t look too shabby himself.
…Oh, and Stephen A. Smith is “reporting” — you know what, let’s just call it Stephorting from now on — that the Magic have lately inquired about a trade that would bring Dwight Howard to the Knicks, with Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler heading South to Orlando. So there’s that.
