If you haven’t started to ride the Jeremy Lin wave yet, you better go polish your surfboard and get ready! Jeremy Lin has won the heart of New Yorkers and New York Knicks fans, and he’s definitely the talk of the city right now. NY is my home town, so I definitely support this guy. I’m not going to get into Jeremy Lin‘s bumpy rise to popularity in the NBA (you can read all about that on Wikipedia). What I will say, though, is this Asian kid can ball! Also, he went to Harvard for undergrad, so you’ve gotta respect the guy’s intelligence, too! As a medical student–and former division 1 student-athlete–I commend Jeremy Lin for managing the stresses that come with playing a sport while studying at an institution like Harvard. I also admire Jeremy Lin for staying true to everything that makes him who he is.

I found a bunch of these on the Inside Hoops NBA Forum, and I couldn’t stop laughing:

Well, Jeremy Lin’s tongue is blue because he was drinking blue Gatorade (or Powerade)!

Well, because Jeremy Lin and Landry Fields both graduated from schools with reputations of having very intelligent students (Harvard and Stanford respectively).
Why is Jeremy Lin doing the Dougie?
Well, because Jeremy Lin has rhythm. Obviously.
