As of this writing, the Miami just hosted the New York Nicks and refused to be part of Linsanity, which has been hyping up sports media and fans for the past weeks, as they pounded the Knicks to a 88 – 102 victory. They held Jeremy Lin to only 8 points in a very poor 1-10 shooting. But I don’t blame him for the loss. I can play and my well become a superstar but he still has a very long way to go before he can reach that level. It is yet to be seen how he will adjust to top defending teams such as the Miami Heat in the future. He simply had a bad night and I believe all the fatigue is slowly setting into him. But this post is not about Jeremy Lin’s basketball career.
Despite his Lin-popularity for the past weeks, I bet there still millions who have not heard or who are simply just beginning to hear about Jeremy Lin. Yahoo now calls Jeremy Lin the “Sports Illustrated cover boy” because he has recently been in the cover page of Sports Illustrated’s magazine for three consecutive times. But behind all the popularity, the thing that has endeared him to many of his fans is his character and humbleness. Traits so hard to find in today’s generation of sports superstars.
