From Larry Brown Sports:
Here’s something MSG probably would like to take back. During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the Knicks’ 100-85 win over the Kings, the network displayed this unfortunate (get it?) graphic of Jeremy Lin‘s head over a fortune cookie.
The Knicks are now 7-0 since Lin began playing significant minutes. In that time he’s averaged 24.4 points and 9.1 assists, posting a career high in assists (13) Wednesday. He has delivered constantly and revitalized New York’s season.
You would have figured after what’s already happened that MSG would be conscious about not crossing the racism line when it comes to Jeremy Lin. They used poor judgment on this one.

Yesterday, Chasing 23 contributor Lochpster wrote that Tyson Chandler was the backbone of the New York Knicks. If that’s the case, perhaps we can fill out the rest of the Knicks’ body parts:
Carmelo Anthony, the large intestine: the part of the body that completes the digestive process and whose primary output is waste, without returning anything really productive back to the...
The New York Knicks say Carmelo Anthony is doubtful for their game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night.
Anthony has missed the last five games with a strained right groin. The team had said he was expected to be sidelined a week or two after he was hurt during a Feb. 6 victory over Utah.
The Knicks hoped Anthony would be available to return this weekend. If he doesn...
The Knicks and Raptors were about to make a trade with the NYK sending Jeremy Lin to TOR for Anthony Carter.
When the Knicks were struggling like crazy before "Linsanity" happen. They were searching for a legit point guard in the trade market.
Having Anthony Carter over Jeremy Lin would be a disaster to watch and thet would've worsen if they made that trade.
Jeremy Lin, who wants to be a minister when this is all over, raised the Knicks to Seventh Heaven and the .500 mark last night.
No miracles or scoring heroics needed, just solid point-guard play Mike D’Antoni will take every game.
Before a celebrity-studded Garden crowd that included Mike...
TORONTO — Amar’e Stoudemire has a new tattoo teardrop near his right eye in memory of his deceased brother.
On his return last night to the Knicks, that teardrop represented a tear of joy as Stoudemire celebrated wildly on the court with Tyson Chandler after Jeremy Lin’s “miracle’’ 3-point...
NEW YORK (AP) - MSG Network won't say why it decided to air a fan's sign that depicted Jeremy Lin's face above a fortune cookie during Wednesday's Knicks game.The image with the words "The Knicks Good Fortune" immediately caused a stir on social media. Lin is the NBA's first American-born ...
The New York Knicks won their 7th straight game last night with a 100-85 win over the Sacramento Kings. And that graphic above is how the MSG Network decided to celebrate it.See New York, this is why you can’t have nice things. Instead of just letting this great story just happen you have to attempt to be all creative.Via @darrenrovell
Jeremy Lin has ignited a nationwide craze over the past two weeks, as "Linsanity" has spread like wildfire, and the NBA front-office has certainly taken notice. Lin was invited by the league to take part in next weekend's Sprite slam-dunk competition during NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, according to league sources. The second-year point guard is expected to assist...
I went to my local watering hole yesterday after work to enjoy a few sophisticated beverages before I attended the Orlando Magic game, and the barkeep tuned the image box to SportsCenter, which devoted about 70% of the show to New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin. A few dozen Linsanity puns later and my enjoyment of the rise of this unexpected Knicks star was pretty much over. But the...
We said recently that it was coming down to the Clippers and Knicks, and while L.A. was a MUCH better fit on the court, J.R. Smith is taking his talents to the Big Apple. He tweeted “New York Knicks It Is!” earlier this morning and will be combining with Iman Shumpert, Landry Fields and of [...]
Well for the first time since opening the season at 2-0 the New Orleans Hornets have come out victorious in their past two games to match that win streak. Monday night they stormed to a huge lead then were able to hold off the Utah Jazz late for an 86-80 win. They followed that with a close 92-89 thriller over the Milwaukee Bucks to improve to a mere 6-23 on the season.
