Part 6: The Jeremy Lin Saga Continues: Agony and Ecstasy, Pride and Prejudice

Lin served notice that he had arrived in China right at the start of the exhibition season, when he dropped 40 points – more than his NBA career high of 38 – in his very first game. This was surely a point of pride, an announcement that, far from beaten, he was ready to reassert himself at center stage.

And while he did not hit that marker during the regular season, he started off the regular season with 25 points, 9 assists and 6 rebounds in an easy 103-81 Ducks’ win over the Tianjin Gold Lions. In classic, slashing Lin style, he went straight to the rim, and was rewarded with 12 chances at the free throw line, making 11.

1. The Linsanity days with the Knicks were fun to watch

it appears he's still playing the game he loves and doing as well as he can. He seems likely that he will be very successful a whatever he does when he puts basketball in his rear view.

2. Yes indeed!

My bet is that he plays for 3-4 more years, though. He has a lot left in the tank!
