At the beginning of the NBA season, one basketball player kept going back and forth between the NBA and the Developmental League. This smart Harvard graduate made his way into the professional Knicks roster, and made a statement while filling in for teammates. If you haven’t already heard of him, his name is Jeremy Lin.
Jeremy Lin is a very young, talented player. He may not be like LeBron or Rose in my opinion, he is still close to that grouping. He is one of the best point guards in the NBA, and he’s been so good lately that teams have to double team him very hard to stop him on defense. That’s one of his major weaknesses. That may be what it takes to stop Lin-sanity.
Jeremy Lin has been a huge clutch player.for the Knicks, scoring game-winning free-throws, three-pointers, or just making good shots. This is a Lin-sane player, and within two weeks his Jersey became the highest selling in the NBA. But sometimes it seems that he forces things to happen on the court. He has been very good at getting his team involved in play, but sometimes he’ll get himself trapped in the lane while driving. The double team makes Lin very vulnerable. If he improves his skills even more, and gets himself out of those trap situations, I’m excited to see the Knicks in the playoffs. The Heat knew how to play Lin. He needs to make sure he knows how to fight and adjust to all different defenses. I’m excited to see Lin in the future.
