Bro of the Day: The Humble Harvard Hero, Jeremy Lin

UPDATE: Wizards Highlights 23 and 10 for Lin:

From 2/7/12:

For the Knicks, Jeremy Lin's two sensational nights in three days earns the Taiwanese Tornado his first career B of the D honors.

The former Ivey Leager, who cooly led Harvard to their best basketball season ever, Lin, who as well crushed a perfect score on the SAT II MATH 2C when he was in ninth grade (shout out to Benny Pearlz), doused Deron Williams' defense Saturday night against the Nets, and straight up embarrassed D-Will's alma-squader, The Jazz, Monday night, nabbing 53 points, 15 assists and 7 boards in the two games combined.

"I'm having a lot of fun - it's been an unbelievable two, three days, and I'm just thankful to be with this organization right now," Lin said in an NBA TV interview Monday night.

So much for the Knicks not having a point guard.

Question of the day... Did one person in the world have this dude starting in fantasy prior to this week?

 "God is good during our ups and our downs! Glad we got the win tonight!! Thanks to landry for lettin me crash on his couch last night too lol," via Lin's fb page.

It wasn't always smooth driving for J, though - he's been with four NBA teams (the Mavs, the Warriors, the Rockets, and now the Knicks), dipping in and out of the D-League since climbing over John Wall two summers ago.

"The last year and a half up until three days ago was pretty rough for me. Struggling to find a spot in this league, I'm just very thankful to Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior for giving me this opportunity. I can't tell you how many different things had to happen for me to be here, and I'm just overwhelmed right now, just trying to take it all in," Lin added.

Lin's twitterati:

"Jeremy Lin is a huge pickup for the Knicks. Not only is he scoring a ton of points but he is also tutoring his teammates children in math." @NotBillWalton

"MSG is chanting Jeremy like it's a Pearl Jam concert. #linsanity" @robinlundberg

"Even though I'm going through hard times right now. #SadDay Great job tonight team (Knicks ). Jermeny Lin that's how we play. Ya boy SunTzu" @Amareisreal

"1 more Jeremy Lin note: He's only 3rd player this season to play all of 2nd, 3rd, 4th quarter of game (Kevin Martin, Dwight Howard) #Knicks" @ESPNStatsInfo

It really is all about @JLin7 right now!

Granted both teams Lin performed against, the Nets and the Jazz, aren't "contenders" per say, the Knicks have had their troubles as well.

Dude's just livin' the dream, B of the D style.
