Lin Lights Up Madison Square Garden

5 02 2012

 

 

Here is a small tribute to Jeremy Lin – Harvard’s first NBA player in over 50 years and the first American player with Chinese decent – and his big night in Madison Square Garden.

 

Last year, Lin cracked double-digit scoring only twice all season and had a season-high of nine points prior to last night. In the Knicks’ 99-92 victory over the Nets, Lin played 36 quality minutes and finished with 25 points, seven assists, five rebounds, and two steals. He also played this entire game with only a single turnover. Even though this might not be a glamorous statistic, the control Lin had with the ball is desperately needed by this struggling Knicks squad.

 

What a great story it would be if Lin could emerge as the next big thing in the Big Apple. He did not receive a scholarship to play college ball and went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft. He has never let any bumps in the road derail him as he has continued to work on his game whether in the D-League or sitting on an NBA team’s bench. I can’t wait to see what Lin has in store for the rest of this season.
