Being the rabid Knick fans that we are, we were crushed to hear about the departure of Jeremy Lin this past week. Last February Linsanity swept the nation and nearly leveled the city to rubble. Even if you never heard of basketball, clever nicknames like Super Lintendo combined with phrases like “Linning!” made the Lin saga impossible to ignore.

“Now and then I think of when we played together…
Like when you shot a jumper right in Kobe’s eye…”

From couch camper to new kid on the block to $25 million man, Linsanity left faster than it came. The Rockets paid him a mil for each game that he played during his stint as a Knick and now Jeremy Lin can buy all the couches his heart desires. Sure, we’re hurt but the dudes over the  did a parody of Gotye’s smash hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” that embodies our wounded indifference.

Now and then I think of when we played together
Like when you shot a jumper right in Kobe’s eye
Bought a ticket back to MSG
Activated my cable TV
But that was back before you tore your left meniscus

Why’d you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they’re still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could’ve won a title and then maybe we’d retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you’re just Jeremy that I used to know

When I think of all the players who screwed us over
Part of me believing it was always something that we’d done
Haven’t seen the finals since Sprewell played
Could have had a ticker tape parade
Now you’re an Asian in cowboy clothes
And we won’t be crying for Jeremy that we used to know

Why’d you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they’re still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could’ve won a title and then maybe we’d retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you’re just Jeremy that I used to know…
