Jeremy Lin, New York Knicks point guard, was added on Thursday to the roster of players for the upcoming All-Star event on February 24th.
After Lin scored 136 points in his first five starting games, the NBA had no choice but to add him onto the roster after the pool of 18 players were selected. These points are the most by an NBA player since the merger with the ABA in 1976-77.
Lin is the most talked about interest in the world right now. Not only does he possess the skill and talent in basketball, but he is also the first Asian American born player in the NBA. His direct ethnicity is of Taiwanese decent. He has gotten the love and attention from big names like President Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian, and other famous names out there.
This is definitely the ‘Year of the Lin’ and his time to shine. Sing it, ‘All he does is Lin, Lin, Lin no matter what!’
