The Year of Sheltering Dangerously By Ben Fong-Torres
The Year of Sheltering Dangerously By Ben Fong-Torres   Well, hasn’t THIS been a fun 365? As we approached the anniversary of the shelter-in-place orders for the San Francisco Bay Area, on March 16, I thought of some of the changes we’ve been through.  In February, our calendar was packed with restaurant dinners and a large, loud gathering at Harbor Villa, saluting our friend, the civil rights attorney Dale Minami. And there was my 24th time as co-anchor of the...

Jeremy Lin to have knee surgery next week - expected to be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Jeremy Lin to have knee surgery next week - expected to be sidelined for the rest of the season.

By Suzanne Kai

On Saturday, March 31 at 7:50pm Jeremy Lin tweeted to his 694,889 Twitter followers and the 1,565,809 subscribers to his official website the following message:

"Thx for all the love! I'll return from this surgery stronger/better than before and hopefully in time for the playoffs! Ecclesiastes 3:1&11"

And on that note, Linsanity as we know it has been sidelined - at least for the next six weeks, his expected recovery time from the surgery he will have next week in New York.

An MRI revealed this week that his left knee wasn't just sore, it is actually damaged with a small, chronic meniscus tear.  

New York Times' Howard Beck writes about the Knicks pre-game press conference, "The room filled, the cameras rolled and the shutters clicked, rapid-fire - one last multimedia salute to Jeremy Lin, one noisy farewell to Linsanity."

Lin couldn't hide his disappointment at the pre-game press conference after enduring a painful work-out earlier in the day. While the swelling went down, he said the pain was still there, and on Saturday he decided to have the surgery. ..."I can't really do much. Can't really cut or jump, so it's pretty clear that I won't be able to help the team unless I get this fixed right now."

Lin said, "If this was done very early in the year, obviously... I don't know where my career would be. I could be, would be definitely without a job and probably fighting for a summer league spot." "But having said that, this happening now hurts...

Lin is happy with his recovery from his knee surgery - So far so good

April 10:

So far so good - at least in terms of Jeremy Lin's recovery from his knee surgery last Monday April 2.

Now Lin is in his expected six week recovery period. One week down, five more to go.

Best wishes on a successful and full recovery, Jeremy.

Goodbye New York, Hello Houston!

After weeks of speculation, Tuesday night the New York Knicks announced it would not match the Houston Rockets' offer.

Emotions have been running high with Knicks fans. To quote writer Ian O'Connor at ESPNNewYork.com, "Jim Dolan just made one of the dumbest moves of his basketball life"...

Meanwhile, Lin remains a gentleman, thanking the Knicks and showing enthusiasm for Houston. 

Twitter comments: (@JLin7)

"Extremely excited and honored to be a Houston Rocket again!! ‪#RedNation‬" "Much love and thankfulness to the Knicks and New York for your support this past year...easily the best year of my life ‪#ForeverGrateful‬"

This afternoon Jeremy Lin agreed to a multi-million dollar offer sheet by the Houston Rockets. Numerous sources say that the Houston Rockets' offer is reportedly a four year $28.8 million deal with Lin. The contract cannot be signed until after the NBA moratorium ends next Wednesday, July 11, 2012, then the New York Knicks have three days to match the Rockets' offer or let him go.

This story is evolving day by day, and in some cases hour by hour.
