Why Jeremy Lin will be fine

Why Jeremy Lin will be fine:

Many in the media had written off Jeremy Lin after the Knicks hit the skid that ended with Mike D’Antoni’s resignation as head coach. But Jeremy has participated in the Knicks’ three straight wins since then, as a starter. I listened to the fourth quarter of this game, and he was the Main Man down the stretch, grabbing rebounds, getting steals, distributing the ball, drawing fouls, and hitting four straight free throws without a miss.

Not many people have visited the possibility that Jeremy Lin went undrafted because he wasn’t this good then. He got this good by playing against better competition, and learning every step of the way.

[And it continues to point out, that talent is not about how good you can get, but how quickly you get there. No reason not to just strap it on and get to work. Further, you’ll be more insightful (in my experience) about how “good” works. In many ways, it can be a better road…]
