When the Knicks signed Jeremy Lin, an undrafted point guard out of Harvard, in December 2011, he was virtually unknown. What a difference a month makes, right?
After a month of riding the bench in New York, injuries to starters Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire provided Lin the opportunity to show his stuff—and he certainly took advantage of the situation.
In two of his first games starting, Lin clocked 81 minutes of playing time and a career-high 25 points off the bench against the Nets, and followed it up with a 28-point game against the Jazz.
An overnight sensation was born. "Linsanity" is the word that has been used to describe the madness surrounding the sudden success of the NBA's first American-born Chinese player.
Plus, it's just so happens that Lin is single—which means within weeks the NY media will be linking him with every single woman who finds herself standing next to him.
Before that happens, I'm going to try my hand at matchmaking for the Knicks next superstar in the making. Here are 10 local hotties that Lin should meet for dinner and drinks at Butter.
