The sugar content of this jersey is Linsane (via @jlin7 on Twitter).

The New York Knicks, who trail the Miami Heat 3-0 in their best-of-seven first-round series, need all the help they can get. In the first three games of the series, they've been obviously out-classed. Help may or may not be on the way, but chances are they're heading for a quick exit.

One of those players who could return is Jeremy Lin, one-time source of international insanity and a functional point guard on a team that really needs backcourt help. According to various reports, Lin could return for Sunday's Game 4, though it's doubtful. Chances are we won't see him on a court again before the Knicks leave us.

Jeremy Lin gloats about his candy jersey.

As he waits, Lin will have to entertain himself with his many toys and treats. One of those, it turns out, is a special jersey made out of fruit roll-up material (fabric?), courtesy of the candy company Fruit Snacks. Lin tweeted the image above (via the great Knicks blog Posting and Toasting) on Wednesday night, and pretty much anyone who ever peeled shapes out of his fruit roll-ups as a kid got immediately jealous. Check out the tweet after the jump.

I have no idea how long candy lasts when framed, or how Lin could possibly hold off from breaking the glass in a hunger-fueled rage and eat the whole thing in a single sitting. What I do know, though, is that Derrick Rose must be really jealous right now. Sure, he has a custom Skittles machine, but does he have a Skittles mosaic of his face? Get it together, Mars, Inc!
