Mike D’Antoni Praises Time Coaching Jeremy Lin


As the Knicks coach during Linsanity, (Mike) D’Antoni looked back on that time fondly.

“It wasn’t kind of fun. It was really fun. As a coach, it was fun doing it. Was really proud of him and what he’s done; and it couldn’t happen to a better person. It goes deep. That’s why you coach, for moments like that and people like him,’’ said D’Antoni, adding that Lin’s injury has hamstrung the Nets.
