Lin Enjoying His Time at All-Star Weekend
Despite his limited minutes in the game, (Jeremy) Lin has still been one of the top attractions at All-Star weekend. The sporting world has been captivated by the rags-to-riches story of the Harvard graduate who was nearly cut by his third team in two months before lifting the listless Knicks into playoff contention.
“The experience was a lot of fun,” Lin said after the game. “I know I didn’t play too much, but I was glad to be a part of it. …It was just a fun night.”
Other players in the Rising Stars Challenge held a media session with reporters on Friday morning. NBA officials, however, feared the demand for Lin was too great and gave him his own news conference two hours before the game. The interview room was so packed league officials eventually were forced to lock the door and tell late arrivers to watch a video feed.
