I am amazed with this guy. Coming out of nowhere, he is taking the NBA by storm. A Harvard graduate, undrafted coming out of college, he played briefly for the Golden State Warriors before moving to New York as their third-string point-guard (basically the backup of the backup).
Then, on February 4, 2012, he scored 25 points, hauled 5 rebounds, and dished out 7 assists—all career-highs—as the New York Knicks beat the New Jersey Nets. In the subsequent game against the Utah Jazz, Lin made his first career start and had 28 points and eight assists. In the next game against the Washington Wizards, Lin had 23 points and career-high 10 assists—his first double-double. And, in an epic game against the LA Lakers, Lin scored an incredible 38 points, otuscoring superstar Kobe Bryant, who had 34 points. He scored an “ordinary” 20 points in a narrow victory against the Timberwolves before amassing 27 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer, against the Toronto Raptors.
