Here’s what I hear on the street on the subway and in my office: talk of Jeremy Lin and the Knicks.
No question the bandwagon is filling up. I’m a bandwagon Knicks fan. First jumped aboard in ’83-’84 when Bernard had that great playoff run. Then a few years later when Pitino coached the team. I rode the highs and lows of the Riley-Van Gundy Era with great passion. I’ve never stopped watching the Knicks but I stopped caring about them or watching them with any kind of devotion.
Now, I’m on the bandwagon again because a New York winter is better when the Knicks matter and the Garden is thumping. And it’s fun to hear people who don’t care about basketball talking about Lin.
