Valentine’s Day is a day of love.  It is a day that women can’t wait for and men pretend to like for that special lady. But last year, something made this day special for all Knicks fans.  It was the day that everyone fell in love with Jeremy Lin. Everyone except maybe Carmelo Anthony, who was out with an injury and wasn’t around for Lin’s success. On this day one year ago, Lin hit one of his biggest shots of his short career.  With time winding down in a game at Toronto, Lin pulled up 30 feet from the basket and drilled a three pointer with .5 seconds left and led the Knicks to a 90-87 victory over the Raptors.  Lin finished with 27 points in the game including 12 in the fourth quarter. After winning a job in the starting lineup just ten days earlier, Lin had already begun his legendary “Linsanity” run, but this was the shot that got everyone to notice.  Not only was he making noise in the United States, he brought his talents to Canada and showed Toronto what he was all about. The win marked the sixth straight win for the Knicks and was during a stretch in which the Knicks won eight out of ten.  “Linsanity” as a whole was something every Knicks fan remembers but the game-winning shot was the defining moment for the young man out of Harvard.  ”Val-Lin-Tine’s Day” ultimately got a new meaning after this game. So no matter what you are doing on this Valentine’s Day; whether you’re on a romantic dinner date with that special someone or sitting at home by yourself waiting for the Islanders to take on the Rangers, try to remember the greatness that was Jeremy Lin just one year ago. That should be relatively easy for most Knicks fans.
