My favorite Lin moment was when he dribbled the ball all around every opposition player and they were all just standing there with no idea what to do. It was like Bugs Bunny making fun of Elmer Fudd. Wonderful basketball. Or just plain wonderful.
Another amazing thing is that there's no doubt he's the captain on the court. How did that happen so quickly? They communicate so well. But how long have they been playing as a team? Not very long!
And the other guys were so inept and demoralized. One of the players, Cousins I think is his name, was angry the whole game. Even after he scored he was angry. What gives. And the Knicks were having so much fun. I hope it was real. I believe it is.
Jeremy Lin is every bit as powerful as Occupy, in fact I see it as an extension of Occupy. I hope he stays true to who he is. A guy who broke in by dint of sheer excellence, determination, intellect and power. He's the absolute example of what's possible, and he just couldn't be more in tune with the times.
And I absolutely love that he came out of Harvard. It's one of things I learned when I was there as a fellow. It's possible at Harvard to be individually creative. It's got lots of politics, as do all large organizations. But if you really insist, you can do something unique there. I think that makes it an unusual campus that way. Not sure.
