The Knicks’ Linderella-season couldn’t have possibly been perceived nor anticipated by anyone in the sports-world. No one would’ve ever dreamed of an Asian dude, Harvard-grad, and fresh off of the bench, as a result of back-to-back injuries of Stoudemire & Anthony, the two most popular & until now dominant players on the Knicks’ roster. But, then, out of the blue, here’s comes Lin-He’s graceful on the court, knows how to control & dish out the ball to the open man, has confidence in his own shot, can drive to the basket, I mean, he’s the total-package.
He’s really shown & proved that he can play this game & deserves the recognition shown to him as of late. His recent rise to fame in the sports-world has the whole world buzzing, from Beijing to Berlin. He’s been instantly been made a figure that millions of Chinese & Asian youth, around the globe, can look to someone like Jeremy Lin & inspired, as he creates a platform, in a sport that’s always been seen as a sport for only certain types of people. Yao Ming was first; but, Jeremy Lin has surpassed Yao in such a drastic & explosive way. And not just as an Asian player, but as a player period-Afterall, when’s the last time that a player, fresh off of the bench, in the NBA, or any other professional team-sport, for that matter, has carried his or her team to a six-game winning-steak?
Things like this don’t just randomly happen out of mid-air. Rather, this is the direct result of tenacious drive, coupled with tremendous work-ethic, and the urge to prove to everyone who doubts you that you can do whatever others say that you can’t. He’s definitely proven himself to be a force to be reckoned with in the NBA, and has established himself as a serious player who knows how to take care of business.
