Like any sports fan, this kid has a lot of heart.
Devastated when one of his favourite players Jeremy Lin wasn’t going to be returning to the New York Knicks (he signed with the Houston Rockets instead), five-year-old Niam was recorded on video having an emotional breakdown.
Soon after, the video went viral. And somewhere along the way, Niam’s heartbreak reached Jeremy. Seeing how saddened the child was, the basketball player arranged to speak with the youngster on Skype. Thanking him for his support and encouraging him to keep cheering for the Knicks, Jeremy also answered some of little Niam’s questions.
This kid is ridiculously cute and he sure seems to know his basketball. Maybe one day, he’ll be managing a team of his own!
Jeremy Lin now has yet another thing named after him.
Dubbed Linsanity OG, there’s a new strain of marijuana inspired by the New York Knicks’ basketball player.
And rappers are already endorsing the product.
Looking at the label, it appears that an eighth of an ounce of Linsanity OG costs $60.
Thankfully for Jeremy Lin fans who don’t smoke marijuana, there are several other “Linspired” products to purchase that are probably safer and more affordable.
Well, maybe except the Jeremy Lin rookie card or the boxer briefs from Harvard.
