Re: Rockets/Jeremy Lin at Knicks Dec 17
As for his former teammates, Lin hugged each of the Knicks’ five starters before the opening tap. But he received one hard “welcome back” when Tyson Chandler leveled him and drew a flagrant foul for a smack to the head on one Lin drive in the second quarter.
“I totally understand. When someone comes in your lane you want to make sure they think twice about coming back. He hit me hard, but I still kept coming. It was fun. It was friendly. It wasn’t malicious. I got to talk to him after the game. Tyson was like a big brother to me last year. So it was fun to play a game (against) him.”
