Do you think Kobe Bryant knows what “Linsanity” is now?
Jeremy Lin has been superb since cracking the Knicks starting lineup just four games ago. He squared off against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night at Madison Square Garden, in a win that would give the Knicks four straight with Lin running the show.
Kobe Bryant was interviewed in the locker room following the Lakers overtime win over the Boston Celtics and he had this to say when asked about Jeremy Lin.
“I know who he is, but I don’t I don’t really know what’s going on too much with him”
“Does he have triple-doubles and stuff ”
When asked if Kobe would consider guarding Lin if he was having “one of those games”.. The Mamba responded with..
“Jesus Christ”, a brief chuckle, followed by, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here”.
Do you think Kobe knows about Lin now?
Kobe admitted that he did, indeed, know who Jeremy Lin was, but claimed he was oblivious to the Lin-Sation that has been taking place in the Big Apple over the course of the three games prior to their meeting.
Well, after Lin torched the Lakers for 38 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds in a win for the Knicks, I’d say that the Black Mamba now has first-hand knowledge of just who Jeremy Lin is and what this youngster is capable of!
