Mark Cuban: No One Would Know Jeremy Lin If He Played For Charlotte

Friday February 17th, 2012

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says that if Jeremy Lin was performing the same way he is on the Knicks for the Charlotte Bobcats, no one would know about it, according to ESPN.

"If it was happening in Charlotte, no one would know," Cuban told ESPN.

"New York is still kind of the mecca of the media for basketball," Cuban added. "It's great for the league, so you've got to love it. And Jeremy Lin is a great kid, so I'm happy for him."
