From starting off as one of the NBA’s most elite point guards in February, Jeremy Lin’s magic is starting to take a toll….. a big toll. In the month of February Jeremy Lin averaged about 24.6 points per game and now those points have dropped immensely going to about 13.6, still not bad, but for Lin it’s not as magical as it used to be. Some critics believed and others knew that this would happen but not this fast! It hasn’t even been a month and his level of playing and quality has dropped. His jersey used to be #1 selling in the NBA but now has been taken off the shelves because it isn’t selling anymore as much as it used too. Others still think that their is still magic left in the air but to others that was just a fairytale story that only lasted for a short period of time. Personally I believe that this Lin-derella story is over and most likely will never come back again as big as it did last month and the month before that.
Some questions that I still have about this is that how did he come out of the shadows and just somehow become a star in the span of one game? Also, will this magic come back ever again? What do the critics and other fans think of this Lin-sanity and if it will come again? Some fun facts are that Lin’s jerseys are selling on ebay for about $2000 and his rookie cards are selling for about $30000 and it is becoming very expensive. Also, Jeremy Lin used to play for the Golden Sate Warriors in the 2010-2011 season and played for only about $500000 but now at the Knickerbockers his contract has went from lower then $100000 to about 2.5 million dollars for 2 years. So now that this Lin-sanity is going back into the shadows, some, like me, still wonder if this fairytale will ever rise again and have him come back and take the league by storm…….. again.
