I’m not sure what my favorite part of the Jeremy Lin free agency drama has been. Perhaps it’s that the previously unheard of Harvard grad, who was sleeping on his brother’s couch before getting a second chance last season, has parlayed his brief success into a huge contract. Nah, that’s boring. Maybe it’s that the team that gave up on him before even giving him a chance had to eat crow and give him that huge payday. Nope, that’s boring, too. What about how much Knicks writer Frank Isola is kissing Knicks owner James Dolan’s ass by assaulting Lin’s character and integrity in the press? That’s fun, but it’s not my favorite part.Is it that Carmelo Anthony broke an unwritten law within the fraternity NBA players by commenting on another player’s contract? Getting warm. Could it be that Anthony’s remarks have led to hilarious opinion pieces, such as one GQ writer calling him racist against Asians? Getting warmer. Or is it simply that, throughout this all, Anthony just doesn’t give a crap
