Knicks’ fans settle with Carmelo as last hope after Linsanity

Last year it was the over hyping of a one, Jeremy Lin, just after a few games.  Most of us were scratching our heads to why the New York Knicks fans were blowing this “Linsanity” thing way out of proportion.  Especially when we watched their counter-parts, Jets and Giants fans, scratching their heads over the “Tebow Mania” fiasco.  I am still not understanding why...
