Melo And Amare Talk Linsanity

After the Knicks Monday practice, Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire chimed in on Linsanity. 

Carmelo Anthony: “I love it. I love it. It’s crazy. Everywhere you go, it’s Lin, Lin, Lin, Lin. I’m enjoying it. My son told me to tell Lin, “What’s up,” [laughs]. I’m kind of sad that I’m not out there to be a part of it, but I love what’s going on right now. The underdog story — a guy who’s been sent down to the D-League numerous times and then to actually come back and give New York a spark, give our team a spark. It’s something that we’ve been looking for, trying to figure out different lineups, different experiments. He’s thriving right now.”

Amare Stoudemire: “I mean, he’s playing well. Only in New York would he become an international icon over night. He was about to get cut and he comes out and has a phenomenal week. It’s those Cinderella stories, man, that really capture the fans and also the media. It’s something that you can’t really explain. New York just captures that Cinderella story. They love the underdogs, they truly do, only because New Yorkers themselves are hard workers, and they want to feel the success from the athletes and from their teams. That’s what they’re feeling from us right now.”
