As Jeremy tweeted after tonight's game against the Nets, "God is good during our ups and our downs!" And let me tell you, there were many downs before this huge huge up. First, Jeremy looked to be the first guard off the bench for the Warriors this coming season before they shockingly waived him after drafting Charles Jenkins in the 2nd round. What were they thinking? Where they listening to the Warriors TV broadcaster or other Bay Area reporters who had no respect for JLin's game and weren't even sure that he was a legit NBA backup. This was the one thing that owner Joe Lacob got right. Then, Jeremy gets picked up by the Rockets and gets waived again, the night before the NBA season begins. Can it get worse? Well, the Knicks pick him up and then hardly play him even though they have no legit pg. Then he gets sent down again to the D-League. Finally, due to just horrendous play by Bibby and Douglas, JLin gets his chance.
The rest is history, or should I say destiny. Coach D'Antoni should be thanking Jeremy Lin for saving his job as it looks like it was getting a bit dicey. I know that it was just the Nets, but don't they look like a different team with JLin running the show? Also, this game alone, made Jeremy Lin a rich man. As a free agent after this season, he'll have his pick of multi-million dollar offers. Now, Jeremy can just relax and play. He has earned his playing time and will no doubt get it. Can you see Jeremy leading this team to the playoffs? If he can, and they win a round in the Eastern Conference playoffs he can become the Asian Tim Tebow!
