Lin-derella?Posted: February 15, 2012
Jeremy Lin plays basketball for the New York Knickerbockers.
Jeremy Lin is a Harvard-educated
ChineseTaiwanese-American (thanks, SAR) who nearly fell off the National Basketball Association radar recently, but now he holds the NBA record for the most points (and the most turnovers) for an NBA player in his first 5 games.
Mr. Lin is old-school in his play. He passes before he shoots (unlike the 6th graders I coach), but he shoots fairly well (like the Creighton Bluejays, who shot 12-14 from 3-point land last night).
NBA teams will figure out how to stop Mr. Lin.
But then they’ll have to figure out how to stop the Knickerbockers, who have Amare Stoudamire and Carmelo Anthony returning from injury. IMCBHO (In My Correct But Humble Opinion), those stars will crash and burn the Knicks’s chances to make a playoff run.
Here’s Jeremy now–sorry about the Copy/Paste and commercial:
