Linsanity…off the Bench?

Pretty sure there would be a riot in NYC if D’Antoni actually decided to have Jeremy come off the bench. Personally, a more intriguing lineup would be B Diddy at the 1 and Lin at shooting guard, the position he primarily played at Harvard.

So will D’Antoni look into tinkering with the starting five, even bringing Lin off the bench?

“It could [change],’’ D’Antoni said. “I’m trying to find the right combos. But it’s got to be determined over time. It’s not going to be over one game. Not going to just throw people under the bus for one or two games. Over a length of time, if they prove they need to be out there, they’ll be out there.’’

I Have a Man Crush on Landry Fields

I’ve had a man crush on Landry Fields ever since the Modell’s commercial he did last season. And then there was the Andy and Landry Show. Today at an event for Knicks season ticket holders, Landry showed off his pipes with this absolutely breathtaking rendition of Bruno Mars/Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”…I think I’m in love.

Jeremy Lin's #1 Fan

In his third game in as many nights, Lin didn’t play much in the Rising Stars Challenge.He did have a nice lob to Blake early on, as well as a reverse layup finish in the second half. Despite Lin’s limited floor time, he was the talk of the town in Orlando. Here are some of the highlights from yesterday’s coverage:
