The Knicks are having the time of their lives. The undrafted rookie, Jeremy Lin, killed it once again by nailing the game winning buzzer beater against the Raptors on Valentine’s Day. Lin had a double-double after hitting 27 points and completing a career-high 11 assists. At this point, I can only hope Jeremy Lin and the Linsanity craze continues to grow because the point guard is changing the NBA.
Amazingly, the New York Knicks ticket prices went up 27% after Jeremy Lin came off the bench to hit 25 points in the Knicks 99-92 win against the New Jersey Nets. Jeremy Lin is also the fastest growing athlete brand in the world and is now worth $14 million. Clearly, the team that made the best franchise decision for the 2012 NBA season was the New York Knicks. Below are Jeremy Lin’s fourth quarter highlights in the Knicks game against the Raptors.
