FINAL SCORE: Knicks with 96 and Rockets with 109!!!
Ok…so another game that I had to miss because of other obligations But I am so happy to come home to see a win on the scoreboard!! And despite all the shit talk going down…how ironic is it that the Rockets were the ones to end the Knicks home town winning streak!! Jeremy also played very well tonight and had 22 pts, 4 rbds, 8 assists….showing that his return to MSG was not going to be one of failure, for the NY media and fans to find another reason to support the controversial reason of letting him go. I am sure the return to MSG was bittersweet for him. Can you imagine looking out into that sold out crowd and realizing that they will not be cheering for every basket you put in or for every assist or free throw you make? You are no longer their hero or the savior of their team. Of course, Jeremy publicly broadcasted only positive thoughts and love for all the fans who came out to MSG…regardless of whether or not they came to cheer him on.
The articles I read mentioned that he was greeted with cheers and even a standing ovation when his name was called out!! Regardless of the team trades, I think it is very hard for even a Knicks fan to deny how much Jeremy Lin had meant to them at one point…no matter how brief his season with the Knicks was. By some of the pics…you can tell that his old teammates still had a lot of love for him.
Looks like Jeremy and Stat had a nice conversation that left smiles on both faces.
Look at how much Tyson towers over Lin!! And Tyson’s hand on Jeremy’s lower back…umm *clears throat* looks like a scene for the Truly, Madly, Deeply fan fiction.
I seriously don’t know who is cuter…Jeremy signing the kid’s shirt or the kid lol!! I love how he is wearing Jeremy’s old jersey number with the Harden beard!!
I wonder how many other fans wore Jeremy’s old jerseys and t-shirts to show their support!
Notice all the cheers!!
Yea…that had to hurt!
I am hoping that a lot of other fans were able to watch this game…and maybe there were even some Lin Ladies in attendance??? Since I missed the game…were there any key plays or events that weren’t shown on these video highlights that I and other fans should know about it??
Also if there are any video highlights that I missed, feel free to let me know and I will add them to this post!!
YAY for a WIN!! Now I will definitely have a smile on my face before bed!!
