I am pleased to see this old interview back on your front page. The local news channels were covering him last night as well as plenty of sports press.

We should be following his career with local pride! He is such a nice guy.

The Warriors were such fools for dumping Jeremy. Can't wait for him to come back to town and make them regret that.

Lin's dribbling style reminds me of Bob Cousy. Very rapid, close to the ground, never stop the dribble, until the finish. Peripheral vision. Very impressive.

The Warriors gave up on a good one! Shame on them! Some heads should roll on this one.

Did the Warriors ever sell a Jeremy Lin souvenir team jersey? The Knicks sure are: Web Link
