Jeremy Lin’s rise shouldn’t be so surprising

The circumstances are Lincredible. The meteoric ascension to stardom is one of a kind. The hype is more than deserved for this Linderella story.

What does Jeremy Lin mean for the New York Knicks?

Jeremy Lin led the New York Knicks to a win over the Los Angeles Lakers while pouring in 38 points and 7 assist. Now allow me to repeat that without laughing. Some dude from Harvard has won 3 straight games, and he just led the Knicks to a win over the Lakers with 38 points (damn…

Golden State Warriors, Victims to Mark Jackson’s Strategic Tunnel Vision

It doesn’t surprise me that Mark Jackson employed his hack-a-Howard last night. It didn’t surprise me when he did it on Christmas Day to Deandre Jordan and the LA Clippers.
