Kobe Bryant - Jeremy Lin

Labels:

What the heck we were talking about, Kobe Bryant didn't know. When the Los Angeles Lakers star guard sat down for postgame interviews following his team's 88-87 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday, he faced a barrage of questions -- not about the game, but about Harvard grad and the New York Knicks newest sensation, Jeremy Lin. "What? I have no idea, I mean I know who he is, but I don't really know what's going on too much with that," Bryant said when asked about Lin and what he's done in the past week.

On Lin, Kobe, here's a crash course. Basically, he's become the NBA's version of Tim Tebow. All he does is win. In his last three games, Lin has averaged 25.3 points and 8.3 assists in extended minutes. In short, he's been "Linning." You would be hard pressed to find basketball fans who haven't heard of Lin by now. It's been extremely overhyped by the New York media after all, and even some in the national media have taken a bite into the Asian rising star.
