Jeremy Lin ’10 Makes Cover of “Sports Illustrated”

The magazine will put the red-hot New York Knicks guard on the front of its next issue.

Jeremy Lin ’10, the New York Knicks point guard recently promoted to a starting role, has taken the National Basketball Association by storm. Lin, profiled in Harvard Magazine as an undergraduate, is slated to appear on the cover of the next issue of Sports Illustrated. Here are some examples of his recent court heroics:

Against the Toronto Raptors, Lin scored eight of New York's final 14 points, including a game-winning three-pointer with 0.5 seconds to play. He has played the majority of the last six games for the Knicks, starting  the past five. In that stretch, the Knicks are 6-0, even without two of their best players (Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire) in the lineup for most of it. And in that stretch, Lin's averaged 26.8 points and 8.5 assists a game.

"Linsanity" has received nonstop coverage by national media, including the Huffington Post, and naturally has garnered enormous attention from New York City outlets like the New York Daily News.  ESPN offers game-by-game statistics for his breakout season
