Jeremy Lin will probably never play for the Knicks again. But if the soon-to-be free agent signed with New York this summer, it would bring an added layer of attention to a club that already garners plenty of it. Is that a good thing? Landry Fields, Lin's close friend, weighs in: "If Jeremy comes back, great. I love Jeremy, I want him to succeed in whatever he does. For New York, I'm not sure that's the best fit. Simply because of the distractions," Fields told The Knicks Blog Podcast with Anthony Donahue and Moke Hamilton. "The media, being in the broadcasting world, I've see that people love to put a microscope on the Knicks, no matter how good or how bad they are. It's just that there's drama there, so this is what's going to sell and entertain fans."
