Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin had another jaw dropping performance last night at Madison Square Garden. He finished with 38 points (highest by any player on the Knicks this season) and 7 assists, to help the Knicks continue on their 4th straight win. More impressively Lin defeated Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
This was the first game I had the opportunity of actually watching. He is surely impressive to watch. He had 18 points and 5 assits at the half, and kept his magical run going the second half.
I feel like New Yorkers are easily amused, and always appreciate an underdog story; and of course the media went and ran with LINSANITY and all these other corny names. So who’s luckier, Lin for being discovered by the Knicks or the Knicks for acquiring such a gem of a player…..?
Although he had a fantastic performance, I feel like other team’s defense just haven’t studied him enough. Once they do, he will be stoppable. Overall his game can use some work, but his presence on the floor last night outshined everyone, even Kobe.
The “Jeremy Lin” frenzy that’s arose is surely nothing to stay quiet about. Let’s say he does go on to be an All-Star callobor player. Lin has a rapid first-step to the rim, great pick and roll player, has seem to be on his shooting, and seems very coachable–I mean he did go to an Ivy League school. However this is all still HYPE.
I’m sure this won’t be my last blog post about Mr. Jeremy Lin.
All he does is “Lin”(win) but I’m not yet a “LIN-EVIER” (believer)……….Yeaaaaaa, I tried. Lol.
