Who haven’t heard of the new basketball sensation? Jeremy Lin.
Jeremy an Asian (Taiwanese) guy in the NBA.. he used to stay on the bench all the time.. Nobody really paid attention to him, he was sleeping on the couch of his family’s friend. He is Christian and soft spoken. And I forgot he is also graduated from Havard. To make it the perfect context, he is not that tall and got turn down by a couple of teams.
2 events in the Knicks team brought him to the light. The 2 star players had to leave the team temporarily .. So the Knicks called him to play. Then happened what had to happen like Clark Ken, in one week he made history.
Lin had a career night on February 4, 2012, when he scored 25 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and dished out 7 assists (against only 1 turnover) in a 99-92 Knicks victory over the Nets. The statistics for points, rebounds, and assists were all career highs for Lin. After the game, Knick coach Mike D’Antoni, while being interviewed by the MSG Network, said Lin has a point-guard mentality and “a rhyme and a reason for what he is doing out there”. In the subsequent game against the Utah Jazz, Lin had 28 points and eight assists, new career highs. On February 10, 2012, Lin scored a new career high 38 points and had seven assists, leading the Knicks in their victory over the Los Angeles Lakers with a score of 92–85. He scored 89 points in his first three career starts, the most by any player since the merger between the American BasketballAssociation (ABA) and the NBA in 1976-77.
