The Windy Apple:
Season Averages: 4.4 PPG, 3.9 RPG
Season Highlight: Like fellow Knicks Landry Fields and Steve Novak, Jared Jeffries played his best basketball with the rise of Linsanity. Over a stretch of 9 games (2/4-2/15), all wins, Jeffries nearly doubled his season averages- averaging 7.8 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.2 STLPG and 1.2 APG. Also take into consideration that taken charges are not included into those stats- something that Jeffries excels at. He was a vital piece of the teams success during that period, especially being that they were undermanned.
Season Lowlight: Unfortunately, Jared Jeffries re-aggravated a knee injury in a road win vs. the Sixers. He would be forced to sit out for two weeks with an inflamed right knee and even upon returning was limited to 10-15 minutes per game. Jeffries, who had been such a huge part of the team, would essentially be a non-factor for the remainder of the season- including a tough 1st round series matchup vs. the Heat.
Final Judgement: Persona...

Grunwald said Woodson's postseason interview was as impressive as his 18-6 regular-season...
Jeremy Lin isn’t even sure where he will be playing next season, but he knows that he will be getting a huge pay raise no matter where he signs, and he will be able to profit off the term that became synonymous with his play during the unexpected run he had with the New York [...]
