Jeremy Lin taking his sport to new heights

By

From out of nowhere, Jeremy Lin emerged as the new “big star” in sports. Now the point guard for the NBA’s New York Knicks, Lin has drawn a widespread amount of coverage in a very short amount of time.  As Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Marc Whiteman reports, the media is going a little too ‘Linsane’ over ‘Linsanity’.

Skiles Out As Coach Of Orlando Magic

Following the conclusion of a frustrating regular season, Scott Skiles has stepped down as coach of the Orlando Magic after just one year. Skiles was 35-47 this season, his lone year leading the Magic — the team that he spent five seasons with as a player as well. The team said a search for a new coach is starting immediately.

    Mr. Lin’s recent success has to do with all of these things:
    1) Not one NBA team drafted him out of Harvard
    2) He was cut from two teams in the last two seasons and was about to be cut from the NY Knicks.
    3) His playing skills are basically why the Knicks are winning.(The NY Knicks are typically a very bad team that hasn’t had any success in over a decade)
    3) He happens to be American born and Chinese (most American NBA fans aren’t used to seeing a Chinese player in the league)

    He is the an underdog defying the odds by refusing to quit when he’s repeatedly been told that he can’t play in the NBA. Oh, and he happens to be Chinese American!
