Possible Nicknames for Jeremy Lin

lin header 560x315Due to the Knicks being atrocious in the backcourt, they have turned to second-year point guard Jeremy Lin to provide a spark. And after just two starts, Broadway is abuzz with Lin Mania and afflicted with Lin Fever and, uh, you get the point. New York is desperate for a glimmer of hope after a 10-15 start, and Lin’s 53 points and 15 assists has landed the Harvard grad smack dab in the Big Apple spotlight. While the comparisons to Clyde Frazier seem a tad premature, we think the young man has moxie. So much so that he needs a nickname. Here are a few suggestions.
