When I first time watching an NBA game, I loved the strength and beauty immediately. Every powerful dunk, each excellent 3pointer, were made by a lot of training. In the past, people always thought about that Yellow people won’t have the chance to play such a high level basketball, but after Yao Ming, a 226cm big fellow, successfully enter NBA and had a great achievement, we Asian knew that play in the NBA will not just a dream anymore. Feb,5,2012, a Taiwanese named Jeremy Lin, was substituted as a point guard, played an excellent ball game, made me very excited.
Before this game, Jeremy was released three times by three NBA teams, finally he was signed by New York Knicks. At the time being the main players injured, Jeremy was still a bench player, and the Knicks still in a losing streak. At that time, the head coach Mike D’antoni decided to allow Jeremy to get out of the bench. Because of that decision, Linsanity official swept the whole world.
When we talking about Lin’s performance on the court, the media maybe exaggerated. However, for Jeremy Lin, he always felt he was just an ordinary person, and faith, family, and basketball were always the most important three things for his life. Humble personality is why Lin was so welcomed by the fans, in the NBA, there were few players could be such a low-key acting style like him. That’s the reason why Jeremy Lin could be so successful.
In many times, people always looking forward to a chance, even with the efforts of seven, still want to have one-third of luck blessing. Jeremy’s story is a very good example, it tells us that when the opportunity comes, not only to catch it, but also clenched it. Hopefully he can keep his faith and always improve himself, makes he become a better NBA players!!
