Jeremy Lin is taking the NBA by storm. The New York Knicks guard who has come out of anonymity to become a star in New York on the back of the 5 best starts string since the NBA/ABA merger. Just to showcase what he's done:
2/4/12 - Vs. New Jersey - 25 pts / 7 ast / 5 reb
2/6/12 - Vs. Utah - 28 pts / 8 ast / 2 reb
2/8/12 - Vs. Washington - 23 pts / 10 ast / 4 reb
2/10/12 - Vs. Los Angeles Lakers - 38 pts / 7 ast / 4 reb
2/11/12 - Vs. Minnesota - 20 pts / 8 ast / 6 reb
Something like this is the gift horse that David Stern has been hoping for. A player who came out of nowhere and has vaulted to stardom in the biggest market in the game.
My questions to the Gabitants is this:
Can he sustain it?
Will the returns of Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire reduce his impact on this team and its suddenly crazed fan base?
Time to pipe in.
