Jeremy Lin is a national sensation for two reasons.
1. He has a huge amount of talent out there on the court.
2. Mike D'Antoni, the new Lakers coach, gave him a chance.
Here's what Jeremy had to say about the man who gave him a shot, and the new coaching opportunity for him:
"Obviously, I'm very, very happy for Coach D'Antoni. He deserves it. He changed my career. He changed my life. I'm always thankful to him for that. I wish him the best of luck in LA. Obviously, I'll be seeing him soon.
He gave me confidence in running the offense. He's a coach that empowers his players. He gives his players the confidence and freedom to go out and play to the best of their abilities. That's what he did for me last year."
Bros for life! Ha!
We're excited to see what Mike can offer the Lakers, and we've already heard that a certain someone approves as well.
It's only a matter of time!
