Manny commented on The Jeremy Lin Knicks era was fun while it lastedNice article. I can relate. I also did not watch NBA until Lin came. My husband is a Lakers fan so he would watch games. I would sit next to him and pretend to enjoy the games. Then I heard him say the Knicks had a shooter. That was during the Lakers vs. Knicks game. I stopped daydreaming and watched the game, and saw Jeremy Lin play for the first time. That was the start of me watching all previous games via u-tube, and watching game after game after that. I enjoyed basketball, learned about all the players, and got educated about basketball moves because of Jeremy Lin...how he graced the court, how much charisma he had, and how thankful he was that he was given the opportunity to play. I saw a humble talented guy who made people very happy, who made basketball fun to watch, who is the same guy that Knicks let go. I learned to like all the other Knicks players, but now without Lin, I know for sure, I will never enjoy watching their games, nor care whether they win or lose.
