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.
