NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- A month after "Linsanity" hit its peak in the New York area, there is a trail of winners and losers on and off the court.
During seven straight wins with Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin in the lineup, New York hoops diehards, fair-weather fans and even the governor were crying foul on a standoff between Madison Square Garden (MSG), the owner of the Knicks television rights, and Time Warner Cable (TWC), a powerhouse cable provider to the region.
While the standoff benched Lin in the living rooms of nearly 3 million local viewers, a truce brokered hours before the tip-off to Lin's eighth start may have been the high-water mark of Linsanity.
