James Plans on Guarding Jeremy Lin
Thursday could be the ultimate test for Jeremy Lin. Not because his Knicks will be taking on Miami Heat. But individually, because LeBron James, one of the best on-ball defenders in the game, says he’ll likely guard Lin some.
“I know I’m going to end up guarding Lin at some point,” LeBron told reporters Wednesday.
LeBron, as I’m sure you recall, switched to guard Derrick Rose for lage parts of the Eastern Conference Finals and essentially locked down the MVP. And while Jeremy Lin has had quite the start to his time in New York, he’s not Derrick Rose.
