Companies Competing For Jeremy Lin Endorsement Deal

Jeremy Lin

As Linsanity continues to grow, so does the interest from thousands of companies looking for a global spokesperson.

Since becoming a starting point guard for the New York Knicks, Jeremy Lin has become the most popular Asian-American athlete on the planet and his agent has more offers than he can count from companies looking to sign Lin to a lucrative endorsement deal.

Despite all the offers, the NBA star is playing it cool, as a source explained:

“Jeremy doesn’t want to jump into anything. He wants to sit back and wait and see what suits him. He’s not looking for the quick money. The deals have to be right.”

Instead of jumping on a deal worth millions, he's focusing on getting the right team together that is capable of guiding his career throughout all of this Linsanity, as another source commented:

"There’s been so much interest, and so many people reaching out, it is overwhelming. They’re working to build a team to handle all this, and hiring marketing and p.r. executives. He has met with IMG.”

Although there are endless opportunities for the young player, he's looking to represent brands that fit his clean image, but don't expect to see him on billboards too soon.

“These kinds of deals can take a year,” said one source. “They take forever to negotiate.”

What brand would U like to see Jeremy Lin rep?

Rachael Ray Sues Home Inspectors For Failing To Reveal Dangerous Mold Problem!

wenn5506109jb.jpg

Rightfully so! We'd be livid, too!

Rachael Ray and her husband, John Cusimano, have filed a lawsuit against home inspection companies for failing to notify them that the house that they bought in Long Island, NY has a severe mold problem that may have been affecting their health!

Ray has had a history of serious respiratory problems, and the inspectors failed to spot the mold and water damage in the $2.9 million villa back in 2007, when they brought the property!

According to a source:

"Rachael and John were considering selling the property when the mold problem became apparent. It is such a beautiful home, but this could make it impossible for them to sell the house until the problem is solved."

Awful!

You never expect the people you're trusting to ensure your home is safe to fail completely are recognizing a serious issue!

Hopefully this matter can be resolved and can find a safer place to live, given her health problems!

Thoughts??
