The New York Knicks have said they wanted Jeremy Lin to remain on the team after becoming a free agent and it sounds like they got their wish!
That's right, the NY Knicks want Jeremy Lin!!
Remember a few months ago when everybody was losing their shizz over Jeremy Lin?
Whatever happened to that??
Even at a fancy restaurant!
Despite making bank off of a recent endorsement deal with Volvo, Jeremy Lin doesn't feel the need to look like a million bucks.
The NBA sensation reportedly walked into a classy Japanese restaurant for dinner with friends on Sunday night and was wearing
Jeremy Lin's new coach may not be too fond of utilizing him on the New York Knicks offense, but the rest of the world still wants to drain Linsanity for all it's worth.

Mike Woodson, who replaced head coach Mike D’Antoni, was predicted to prefer veterans to rookies and has since confirmed that strategy by saying:
“It’s everybody’s ballclub. But I want everyone to know that when it comes [crunch] time and I got to get a big shot, I’m going to Melo and Amar’e and guys who have done it. A lot of these guys are young and still trying to figure it out. Those guys have been around the block a number of times and have done it. They’ll be go-to guys coming down the stretch.’’
Unfortunately for Lin, that means he'll be forced to pass the ball to players like Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire instead of taking a shot at NBA glory.
Woodson pretty much dashed the popular athlete's hopes of continuing his astounding run, that started with 7 straight wins, as he said in a statement:
“I remember playing for a great coach in Red Holzman. He taught me rookies were to sit, listen and learn. He taught me a valuable lesson way back when. I listened and learned a lot as a rookie.’’
We're looking forward to see how the coaching change affects the Knicks' game, but one thing is for sure — Jeremy Lin better start accepting as many endorsement deals as he can before Linsanity is a distant memory!
