Jeremy Lin is Inspired by Tim Tebow

Jeremy Lin is the Tim Tebow of the NBA. *sigh* There’s no fighting it. Sure, Tebow is a meathead NCAA champion drafted in the first round who has been a media darling for years and Jeremy Lin is an undrafted, unheralded player who attended Harvard and no one had ever heard of until a week ago, but they’re basically the same person.

See, they’ve both won some games against weak teams and they both believe in the Notorious G-O-D. That’s why Lin finds inspiration in Tebow.

“Actually a lot of inspiration just because [Tebow's] such a polarizing figure but I think the things he says in interviews, his approach to the game is just unbelievable and I respect him so much. I want to be able to do some of the things that he does in terms of the amount of charity work and the non-profit work, and the way he impacts people off the field. I think that is what is most inspiring to me about him.”

The next logical step is for Lin to make some sort of gesture that people can emulate and refer to as “Linning.” Only then will we truly understand how sick we are of Jeremy Lin. The other option is Amar’e and Carmelo come back and Lin never touches the ball again.
