The Daily Peep, March 7

D’Antoni discovered Lin’s humility the first time the 23-year-old showed up at a Knicks practice session when he joined the club from the D-League.

“This kid literally was standing around at practice asking me if he should bring his car to the East Coast, or were we going to cut him, too,” the Knicks coach said.

“These guys came into work. They came in relatively humble. You want to see that, because we were all young guys. Contrary to a lot of kids’ belief, you’re not owed anything when you get here. That’s No. 1. No. 2, we have a good time with them. They’ve got good personalities. They’re funny guys. They can take jokes, they can give jokes. It’s all good.”

“You always want to test a rook to see what he’s made of. And at the end of the day, it is your job. Look, it’s either your family eats or my family eats sometimes. You go at a rook to see what he’s made of. If he’s going to give it to you, you take it from him. We’ve got pretty good rooks. All of them have got a scrap about ‘em and a willingness to compete.”
