The Most Interesting thing about Jeremy Lin
Jeremy Lin is the NBA’s Tim Tebow for the moment. Except he didn’t play at a big name basketball school. He didn’t win a national championship. Nor did he lead his team to a 1 loss season or make any inspiring halftime or post game speeches (that we know of).
It’s not that since coming off the bench and starting for the New York Knicks that he has scored 20 + points in 3 starts versus other NBA foes. It’s not even the fact that he crossed over John Wall this past Wednesday as he led the Knicks to a victory over the Washington Gener…er um the Wizards.
It’s that this young NBA baller who’s contract was guaranteed this past Tuesday at 6pm (at around $800k) lives on his brother’s couch and has been for the past few months. Jeremy’s brother Josh Lin is a student at New York University where he is studying dentistry.
Here’s a guy who has overcome a lot in his life and when given the chance to show off on the big stage, he’s proving all doubters wrong.
Enjoy the ride for the moment Mr. Lin. Oh, and it may be safe to go ahead and grab that bachelor pad now. Your contract is guaranteed.
