Los Angeles Lakers all-time leading scorer Kobe Bryant has not been fazed by New York Knicks’ sensation point guard Jeremy Lin, according to Boston Sports Radio WEEI.
“I know who he is, but I don’t really know what’s going on too much with him. I don’t even know what he’s done. Like, I have no idea what you guys are talking about.” Bryant said to WEEI reporters in the locker room after beating the Celtics 88-87 in overtime.
The undrafted former Harvard star Jeremy Lin has surprised many NBA fans and coaches with his phenomenal play the past three games, in which he has averaged 25.3 points after spending most of the season on the bench. Tonight, Lin will face his first true test when the Lakers come to the Madison Square Garden. The game between the Knicks (11-15) and the Lakers (15-11) is scheduled for 8pm on ESPN.
