Let me be the first to start a thread on this kid. We could be witnessing something truly special. No one knew he was last week. Today he is a household name. His name was probably mentioned more times today than Barack Obama’s. What a story! He makes the last spot on the roster of the NY Knicks, after a stint in the NBA Developmental League, after graduating from Harvard. He leads (and truly leads!) a bad Knicks team, missing its 2 superstars, to a four game win streak, culminating in him scoring 38 points and leading the NY Knicks to a win over the L.A. Lakers, outdueling Kobe Bryant in the process. About 80% of tonight’s SportsCenter was about him. The crowd at Madison Square Garden now worships him. And he still has to sleep on his brother’s couch because he was unsure of his next paycheck!
He is aleady a legend.
