**The Faith and Fate of Jeremy Lin (March 03, 2010)(未紅之前,關於他信仰的訪問)*** Jeremy Lin, Faith, and Ethnicity

My faith and my basketball began separately, then slowly converged, and now they influence each other. I grew up in the church, but I didn't really become a Christian until I was a freshman in high school. ( 中三)

Then, Christianity didn't become a significant part of my approach to basketball until the end of my high school career and into college.  That's when I began to learn what it means to play for the glory of God.

Much of it comes down to humility.  We as Christians are called to be humble.  And if we really understand the gospel, we will be humble.  We should be humble, and understand that everything that is good comes from God.

I'm not working hard and practicing day in and day out so that I can please other people.  My audience is God.

我有一個忠實觀眾,那就是上帝!」

At the same time, I understand that there are kids who will look up to me, and I have a duty to be a godly role model.  So in some sense, I don't play for them, but in another sense I do try to carry myself in a way that reflects God's image.

Jeremy Lin Testimony: Youtube; All Spheres of Life — Even Pro Basketball

The Knicks overnight phenom Jeremy Lin quotes from a section of John Piper's book Don't Waste Your Life in an online testimony recorded last June:

God created us to live with a single passion to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life.

Lin then adds the following commentary about his coming to treasure Jesus more than basketball success:

When Paul wrote in Philippians to press on for an upward prize, he was living for that, and it made his life meaningful (Philippians 3:15). And I realized I had to learn to do the same. I had to learn to stop chasing the perishable prizes of this earth, I had to stop chasing personal glory, I had to learn how to give my best effort to God and trust him with the results. I have to learn to have enough faith to trust in his grace and to trust in his sovereign and perfect plan. I had to submit my will, my desires, my dreams — give it all up to God and say, "Look, I am going to give my best effort, go on the court and play every day for you, and I'm going to let you take care of the rest." This is something I struggle with every day. . . . Playing for great stats is nice, but that satisfaction — that happiness — is only from game to game. It's temporary.

「我希望可將這個信仰傳給更多人,看見別人信主是一件很開心的事。」唯一NBA球員有哈佛大學學位。

林書豪參加山景城基督徒會堂!青少年部陳光耀傳道說,「我已預料到他會參與到事工裡面。但現在神給他特別的恩賜,而且他會竭力地追求。」[1]

『短短1半賽季之間,雖享受過諸多尊榮(成為首位進入NBA的美籍華人),卻也幾經失敗的羞辱,但就像他說的“在波折起伏中,神是信實的。”“信仰是我面對困難時最大的喜樂和勇氣來源,幫助我走出低潮,重新找回對籃球的信心。”』[2]

林書豪和其他室友組了一個經班自己和林書豪常常討論如何避免高等教育所帶來的陷阱,「大學生活總是充斥著酒和各式各樣不同的女孩,我們常常討論怎麼克制自己,怎麼保持對上帝的虔誠,避免落入惡者圈套。」(林書豪為女友下廚)

Jeremy Lin: "He's a Lot Like Tim Tebow" (His life and Christian life in Harvard)

"He was by far the weakest person on the team," says Alek Blankenau, a fellow freshman recruit who, like Lin, experienced bouts of discouragement and homesickness that first year. It wasn't until their sophomore season, (大學二年班) …Lin is indeed a devout Christian—he held a regular Bible study group in the dorms he shared with Magnarelli, Blankenau, and others. Lin had a similarly devout girlfriend in college, and they parted on amicable terms…."Honestly...I hate to say it, but he's a lot like Tim Tebow," Lee concluded….

Ho and Lin often discussed resisting the pitfalls of higher education. "With college life being about drinking and talking to girls, we talked a lot about controlling our temptations, how to be godly, and what to do not to fall into that vicious cycle."

***Jeremy Lin and Pastor Stephen Chan: Faith, sin and Jeremy Lin

**Jeremy Lin is rooted in his Christian faith which helps keep NY Knicks point guard centered (End Zone: The faithful phenom) 華人教會的牧者談起林書豪。(nydailynews.com)

Stephen Chen, his pastor of 10 years: If you were to ask him if he were a basketball player, he’d say yes,” says Chen, who is 33. “But in all those things, Jeremy understands that those things do not define him. He would say that he’s a Christian Chinese person, or a Christian basketball player. That defines him.”

That, Chen says, is the product of an upbringing in the Chinese Church in Christ in Mountain View, Calif. The church was founded by first-generation Christians and it has a heavy emphasis on Bible study. It also emphasizes an humble and level approach, Chen says, regardless of one’s situation or status in life. The Bible is central in everything we do,” Chen says.

So Jeremy, he says, ‘Really, all things are working together for good.’” Chen recalls. “Even when he was cut from all those teams, he holds onto what was said in God’s word.He knows that everything that he has is a gift from God,” Chen says. “Even the hard times.”

Knicks guard Jeremy Lin wears faith on wrist

MyActiveFaith.com: In Jesus Name I Play band

Jeremy Lin is asked this in the interview: “What advice would you give to a young athlete who wants to grow in his faith and pursue his athletic dreams at the same time?”

Jeremy Lin’s Faith – Christianity

The biggest thing is to understand that your talent and your ability to play basketball is a gift from God. The biggest thing is to understand is to use that for God’s glory. I think when you do that everything else starts to make sense. And playing basketball becomes a lot more related to Christianity when you play like that. I think also I needed learn was that just because you pray and give it up to God doesn’t mean that you will win and doesn’t mean that you will have a great performance. But I think there’s something special about playing the right way and playing with the right attitude even if you don’t win or have a successful career.

USA today: Whole world taken with Knicks' star Jeremy Lin

**成功是經歷過很多奮鬥和鍛煉的:Bay Area trainers helped make Knicks guard Jeremy Lin better, stronger, faster

整個暑假,林書豪經歷非常勤勞的鍛煉和更新:Over the span of more than three body-transforming months, Lin doubled the amount of weight he could squat蹲下(舉重)(from 110 pounds to 231 pounds), nearly tripled the number of pull-ups he could do (from 12 to 30) and abandoned the shooting form he'd been using since eighth grade (he's now among the most accurate point guards in the NBA).

He did so by crisscrossing the Bay Area all summer, honing his shooting touch with Scheppler in Los Altos Hills, building up his lower-leg strength with trainer Phil Wagner in Menlo Park and sculpting his upper body with E.J. Costello at 24 Hour Fitness in Pleasanton -- often on the same day.

"He's got the mental makeup of a Hall of Famer," Wagner said.

The tutoring sessions started last May. In a favorite drill called "Beat the Ghost" the coach had Lin go one on one against an invisible defender and fire shots from NBA 3-point range.  Miss the shot and the ghost gets three points. The first one to 21 wins. "He'd say, 'No, no, no, Doc. I have to beat the ghost," Scheppler recalled. It took 500 to 600 shots over the course of 1½ hours, three days to four times a week. But by the end, Lin's flaws vanished like the ghost. 當他對暴龍入了美妙的三分球後,他發了一個短訊給Scheppler

"Doc, that was all you," Lin wrote. "Thanks for everything you did this summer."

 

ESPN Videos and Notes on Jeremy Lin

Lin may change face of Chinese basketball: Yao

Yao Ming: 'Everyone wants to be next Jeremy Lin'

"We have a lot of talented young athletes here who are passionate about basketball," Yao told CNN in an interview Wednesday. "They all want be the next Jeremy. "I think they can relate more to Jeremy because they're more common-sized." "He's the kind of player I'd like to play with if I'm still a player -- he's a team player and everybody likes the way he wins a game," he added. "Honestly, he did much more than I'd expected." Jeremy Lin is great," one man gushed. "He plays so good -- lots of Chinese love him." Another added: "He was born in America, but his blood is Chinese."

Exclusive: Jeremy Lin says faith in God triggered 'Lin-sanity' (13-2-2012)

"Sometimes you come up against a mountain and you end up making the mountain seem bigger than God," said Lin, who spoke via phone Sunday night on the condition that questions be limited to the issue of his spirituality. "Last year, I was on pins and needles. I was putting all this unnecessary pressure on myself. Now, I feel like I'm free out there." He can no longer stroll down the streets of New York, but Lin has finally found peace. "I'm not playing to prove anything to anybody… But I've surrendered that to God. I'm not in a battle with what everybody else thinks anymore." He started every morning with a devotional before heading to the gym to work out. …. Whenever the anxiety tried to creep in, he whispered a Bible verse to himself: And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose. — Romans 8:28 "There is so much temptation to hold on to my career even more now….I'm thinking about how can I trust God more. How can I surrender more? How can I bring him more glory? It's a fight. But it's one I'm going to keep fighting."

Jeremy Lin says his storybook run with NY Knicks is ‘a miracle from God

Jeremy Lin is calling his rags-to-riches NBA story "a miracle from God", adding that it is more than just a coincidence that everything is suddenly breaking right for him. "Anytime something like this happens, a lot of stuff has to be put into place, and a lot of it is out of my control," the Knicks phenom point guard said on Tuesday. "If you look back at my story, doesn't matter where you look, but God's fingerprints are all over the place where there have been a lot of things that had to happen that I couldn't control. "I think it's a miracle from God," Lin said. "That's how I would describe it. Because obviously I don't think anybody expected this to happen the way it happened."

Jeremy Lin's HS coach is surprised, too

Diepenbrock coached Lin at Palo Alto (Calif.) High School: he says, "Oh, what the hell. I'll say it anyway and get in trouble twice: Jeremy was not a good practice player." After a year at Harvard, Lin returned to Palo Alto and asked his old coach, "Can you work me out?" "Now?" Diepenbrock asked. "I was here every day for three years, and now you want me to work you out?" Lin, ever the pragmatist, said, "Yes, because now I know I need it."

During the lockout, Lin's schedule read like a brochure for Navy SEAL BUD/S training:

 10-11 a.m.: Agility training

 11-noon: Weight training

 1-2: Shooting work, with private coach

 2-4: Individual work

" When he was in high school, if there was alcohol at a party, he'd immediately turn the other way. He's such a good person."

Mom Shirley :"Coach, Jeremy has an A-minus in math. I don't think he's going to be able to play this week."

 

Sharing a Heritage with a New Knicks Star: 台灣和美國亞裔基督徒大大以他為榮

All the Asian-American guys want to be Jeremy Lin,” she said. “And all the Asian-American girls want to marry him.”

More than 50 people, almost all of them Christians and the children of Asian immigrants, gathered to cheer for Jeremy Lin, the most unlikely story in sports, and a star they could relate to like no other.

He’s bold about his faith,” sad Kim, 29, a videographer who regularly attends church. “He’s not apologetic about it. That’s something that’s impressive to me.”

Even Kobe impressed by 'Lin-sational' Knicks

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said of the four-game tour de force by the undrafted Harvard graduate who was cut by the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. "I don't know what to tell you. I have never seen it."

 He’s already a success and made so many people proud,” she said. “He’s such an inspiration to young Asian-Americans.”

And Bryant, who had said he didn't know anything about what Lin had been accomplishing this week, was impressed. "He has been phenomenal," Bryant said. "We have watched some tape on him. We came up with a strategy that we thought would be effective, but he was knocking down his jump shot, penetrating and he got around our guards. …"Players don't usually come out of nowhere. If you can go back and take a look, his skill level was probably there from the beginning, but no one ever noticed. … It is a great story. It is a testament to perseverance and hard work. It is a good example to kids everywhere. I'm sure he's certainly put a great deal of work in. He's always had that belief in himself, and he just now has the opportunity to do it. I think it'll be fun for the city here, obviously. Once they get Melo back and Amar'e back, it should be a lot of fun here." ”[3]

The fascination with Lin extends well beyond the USA. "Everyone in Taiwan is crazy about him. Everyone is talking about Jeremy Lin," said Kate Lin (no relation) of China TV Taiwan. "Everyone in Taiwan is so proud of him, that he can play in the NBA."

Linsanity shows no signs of letting up as Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin scored 38 points as New York beat Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, 92-85. Lin’s 89 points in his last three games are the most by any NBA player in his first three starts since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77.

 

Jeremy Lin, Knicks Top Lakers: Kobe Bryant Can't Match Surprise New York Star (VIDEO)

Jeremy Lin keeps getting better. Better even than Kobe Bryant on Friday night.

他出的時機真是何等巧合(Before D'Antoni inserted Lin in the lineup, the Knicks had lost 11 of 13 and had one of the more dysfunctional offenses in the NBA.)[4]

He became an instant star in New York just as fans were ready to check out basketball after the Giants' Super Bowl run was over, and just when it appeared the Knicks might fall too far behind in the standings to salvage the season.

Already drawing comparisons to Tim Tebow for his impact on teammates and the way he speaks of his faith afterward, the hype around him will only grow now after beating one of the league's marquee franchises in his first nationally televised game.

尼克的教練說:He got his opportunity, which came fairly quickly, and he got lucky because we were playing so bad.” Lin was signed to a minimum non-guaranteed contract two days after the Knicks’ season-opening win over the Boston Celtics. However, Lin didn’t get substantial playing time until Jan. 28, when he got 20 minutes of garbage time in a loss to the Houston Rockets. And that was after a three-game stint in the D-League. It wasn’t until last week’s game against the Nets when D’Antoni, frustrated by the play of Douglas and feeling that Shumpert was better suited to playing shooting guard, decided to give Lin a look in the first half. Lin, 23, responded by scoring 25 points in a victory. That was enough for D’Antoni to promote Lin into the starting lineup and in two subsequent games, both wins, Lin has been nothing short of a revelation. He scored a career-high 28 points against Utah and had a career-high 10 assists against Washington two nights later.[5]

紐約是一個很好的傳播基地:Jeremy Lin added to Rising Stars game

The sports world has been captivated by the Lin phenomenon. Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks -- who visited the Knicks on Sunday -- said the story is good for the league because it comes in the nation's biggest media market. "If it was happening in Charlotte, no one would know," Cuban said, exaggerating for effect. "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."

曾經是沒有好的大學籃球隊要的球員:

Harvard School Of Basketball:With the ambitious recruiting of coach Tommy Amaker and the pro potential of Asian-American guard Jeremy Lin, the Crimson has graduated to another hoops dimension (February 01, 2010)

Which is to say that Jeremy's college choice, as stereotypes go, was not terribly novel. Lin's parents, Gie-Ming and Shirley, are 5'6" Taiwanese immigrants who came to the U.S. in the mid-1970s and studied computer engineering (dad) and computer science (mom) at Purdue.

He sent his CV (4.2 GPA, perfect score on his SAT II Math 2C in the ninth grade) and a DVD of highlights—edited by a friend of a friend from church—to all eight Ivies, Stanford, Cal and his dream school, UCLA. Only four schools responded. Out of the Pac-10, Lin recalls, UCLA "wasn't interested," Stanford was "fake interested," and during a visit to Cal a staffer "called me 'Ron.'"

 

他引起美國亞裔人事和NBA球迷很多的興趣。很多亞裔基督徒非常支持和關心他:Is Jeremy Lin the next Tim Tebow for Basketball?

Lin’s Appeal: Faith, Pride and Points

Last weekend, I was driving home when my BlackBerry buzzed with a text message from a Korean-American friend from my church: “You watching J Lin tearing it up?” I texted back, “Really??”

A surge of emotion welled up inside me — a mix of utter astonishment, joy and pride.

“It’s a miracle,” I said to my wife, only half-joking.

The Lakers game on Friday proved nearly too much for me to handle. Yes, Linsanity.

But it also represented much more than that, at least to me.

Like Lin, I’m a Harvard graduate, albeit more than a decade ahead of him, and a second-generation Chinese-American. I’m also a fellow believer, one of those every-Sunday-worshiping, try-to-read-the-Bible-and-pray types, who agreed with Lin when he said to reporters after the Jazz game, “God works in mysterious and miraculous ways.

 

他曾是最沒有可能成功的職業球員,其中一個最失敗的NBA球員。他也是最窮的NBA球員之。所以,他在最近出名前,只能住在哥哥的客廳上。“Lin’s career has been marked by scrappiness and obscurity” no college scholarship offers, undrafted, cut by multiple NBA teams. [6]

Jeremy Lin has been cheered before, but hearing his name chanted or "M-V-P!" is beyond the Knicks' new starting point guard's wildest dreams. The way Lin has played, some of those chants might be coming from his own bench. Lin has made the Knicks whole. He's been the point guard they've needed to run D'Antoni's system. Even without Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, who will be unavailable again Friday night, the Knicks have been playing like a team. The timing couldn't have been better for the Knicks or Lin. Last week he was on the likely-to-be-waived list. On Friday, his contract becomes guaranteed for the season. "He was probably an inch away from being let go at some point," Chandler said. "It's a good thing it didn't happen." (引自Overnight sensation Lin transforms Knicks

He’s single-handedly making the Knicks win after being activated as a starter from the bench a few days ago. Yahoo posted an article last night revealing that he still lives in his brother’s living room and sleeps on the couch. His contract wasn’t guaranteed until last Tuesday — so maybe now he can find his own apartment. (Jeremy Lin lives in brother’s living room)

林書豪:華裔才子 哈佛籃球史上牛的明星()

首位美籍華裔NBA球員林書豪「為上帝打球」

華裔基督徒林書豪NBA大爆發 稱上帝是信實的

「初時我不明白父母說要為上帝而打的意思,後來天父卻告訴我要相信,我知道要多祈禱,一切是為上帝,不是因為數據或冠軍。」Jeremy接受美國《時代》雜誌專訪時就重申打籃球是為了天父:「我不是為了別人或自己打球,是為了天上的父親。

     在哈佛創造了大學籃壇神話:成為首位在Ivy League長春藤聯賽取得1,450分、450個籃板、400個助攻及200個偷波的球員。(引自 哈佛神童林書豪為天父打波)

     林書豪率領Palo Aalto高中球隊進入了州冠軍賽,面對超強的Mater Dei隊,最後的關鍵時刻,林書豪投進致勝一球,那天他進了35,拿下加州聯賽冠軍.

     沒想到,高中畢業的那一年,所有NCAA一級強隊的大學都拒絕了他的申請.

     哈佛大學畢業的書豪帶領尼克隊在他們缺少史陶德麥爾(Amare Stoudemire)和安東尼(Carmelo Anthony)的夜晚取得勝利,前者因為家中有人過世,而後者則是在第一節剩下6:31時因為扭傷右鼠蹊部而離場。(引自The Jeremy Lin Show, Act II)

     迪安東尼賽後林書豪的表現絕非一時僥倖,而隊友謝費利斯亦說林書豪近3仗把籃網的達朗威廉士、爵士的夏里斯和巫師的禾爾都比下去,他已成為聯賽最佳控衛之。」

     Steve Nash wrote on Twitter: “If you love sports you have to love what Jeremy Lin is doing. Getting an opportunity and exploding!

     受人矚目的開始:201224,尼克隊在主場面對紐澤西籃網,林書豪替補,上場逾36分鐘,得到全場最高的25分,外帶7助攻、5籃板和2抄截的成績,帶領尼克隊以9992擊敗紐澤西籃網。於是開始受到矚目,並在下一場得到先發機會。[林書豪- 基百科]

成熟無懼…媽媽眼中的林書豪

事實上,他小時候打球是很霸道的不喜歡傳球給別人怕人家進不了球,乾脆都自己投,是個很「獨」的球員,直到高中才有突破,懂得團體合作

我們支持他大學畢業後做自己喜歡做的事,但在之前,還是要有起碼的常識,所以讀書不能荒廢

我們也提醒書豪,是人一定會犯錯,除了替他禱告,我們讓他了解驕傲是最大的絆腳石個人驕傲時,就會覺得自己什麼都行,希望他有謙卑的態度,將來的路才會好走

我是個普通人,只是期望書豪能成為一個愛主的基督徒,被神所用。我們從小教導三個孩子要知道自己的身分是神所造的人,而神在每個人身上都有特別的計畫,我們注意的是過程,而不是結果。

愛籃球、更愛上帝:林書豪 (等待機會的NBA 後備球員) pdf

愛籃球更愛上帝 林書豪 (文章)

在哈佛主修經濟,副修社會學,是人人眼中的金童,但他卻選擇艱辛的一條路,投入NBA的選秀會,這又是他另一次試煉。

剛和勇士隊簽約時,林書豪彷彿站在雲端,因為他的夢想實現了!但後來太多的關注和壓力,表現不如預期,連自己都失去了信心,更擔心會被球隊淘汰。後來,他被球隊下放到發展聯盟(Development League),難道這就是結局嗎?…那段期間,林書豪心情低落,不想再打球,對比賽失去熱情。「有時候我甚至在被窩裡哭,因為我不知道該怎麼做,覺得很無助。我很快地察覺到在NBA打球,不都如我所想像的,它只帶給我短暫地快樂,但很快就沒了!」聖靈光照林書豪,他要找到永恆的喜樂,而不是短暫的快樂,關鍵是在於他太專注於籃球,而不是神。「當我表現不好時,回家後心情會很差,我所有的快樂,完全取決籃球場的表現。我開始省察自己的定位在哪裡?NBA的球員還是在基督裡我必須把自己交給神,我要謙卑。在發展聯盟時,有幾場球打得很好,比賽後我打電話給哥哥,他問我怎麼辦到?我只能回答說我不知道,只覺得神在那兒掌控著。」林書豪笑著說。

林書豪表示,若有一天他必須高掛球鞋,他不會去華爾街當金童,而是要去傳福音,做個傳道人,或是社福團體的志工。但在這之前,他還想盡情享受籃球帶給他的快樂,因為NBA也是上帝的禾場,他要為主多作見證

New York Times 關於 Jeremy Lin 的報導

Jeremy Lin Has Burst From N.B.A. Novelty Act to Knicks Star

His contract, potentially worth nearly $800,000, () was not even guaranteed until Tuesday afternoon. (7-2-2012) So for the past six weeks, Lin, 23, has been sleeping in his brother Josh’s living room, waiting for clarity and career security.

Lin’s Success Surprising to Everyone

The Knicks liked Lin when he worked out for them in 2010. They called the Warriors about him last year. But when they claimed him off waivers, on Dec. 27, it was largely because Iman Shumpert, their prized rookie guard, had been injured. They grabbed Lin as a low-risk, low-cost emergency player, to provide insurance behind Toney Douglas and Mike Bibby.

Because of the compressed season, there were few practices to evaluate a newcomer. When they did practice, the Knicks gave most of the repetitions to Douglas, who showed promise last season; to Bibby, who was their only established veteran; and to Shumpert, a talented rookie. Lin was an afterthought.

In a burst of desperation and faith, D’Antoni turned to Lin on Feb. 4. Linsanity was born.

Is Jeremy Lin the next Tim Tebow for Basketball?

A Very Linteresting Development

Jeremy Lin Videos: Meet the NBA's Newest Rising Star

Can Lin add to his legend? There's reason to believe the answer is yes

As is everyone else in the Garden, for the first time in what feels like forever. You might think that the smiles are only temporary, that the odds are that Lin won't last. But if you're still thinking about the odds when it comes to Jeremy Lin, then you just don't get it.

 

The couch made famous by Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin on a non-guaranteed deal had to sleep on his teammate's couch. Fields tweeted with it, "Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only couch made famous by @JLin7! Let the bidding begin..."

Jeremy Lin: Star's rise resonates in Palo Alto, where it first started

"Everything you see on TV, that's him. That's the real guy," Jon Lewis said. "He's humble. He's very intelligent. He's just been a great role model for our son and he's been a great role model for everybody who's gotten to know him."

"Yao was too tall. He wasn't like a normal human being," Kim said. "But Jeremy looks like a normal person. He shows that an average guy can do it, too. He proves that if you work really, really hard, you can get there."

For Lin, Erasing a History of Being Overlooked

I said, ‘We can’t give you a scholarship right away,’ ” said Kerry Keating, a former U.C.L.A. assistant coach who spoke to Lin after watching him in a high school game. “I thought he could have played for us. He certainly could have made an impact for us, looking back on it. But at the time, you never really know. It’s an inexact science.

He didn’t really stand out,” said Bill Holden, the former Harvard assistant coach who was responsible for recruiting Lin. “He was like any other average high school players we might see. When I saw his coach, I recommended he go to a Division III school. A few weeks later, Holden stumbled upon Lin at another A.A.U. tournament. This time was different. Lin was playing against top-flight Division I recruits, and he was getting the better of them. Lin suddenly became Harvard’s top recruit.

9 Lessons Jeremy Lin Can Teach Us Before We Go To Work Monday Morning

Find the system that works for your style. Lin isn’t Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant.  He’s not a scorer.  He’s a passer and distributor – who can also score.  It didn’t work for him in Golden State or Houston – where he was before landing at the Knicks.  But Mike D’Antoni’s system at the Knicks was perfect for him to show off his strengths.

When you make others around you look good, they will love you forever. I didn’t know how good Tyson Chandler was, until I saw him playing with Jeremy Lin.

From the Pulpit and in the Pew, the Knicks’ Lin Is a Welcome Inspiration

“The thing that comes to mind is the movie ‘Chariots of Fire,’  said Folch, a Harvard graduate like Lin. She said a main character in the movie, the Scottish runner Eric Liddel, spoke of his desire to follow God. “But God also made me fast,” Folch paraphrased. “And when I run, I feel his pleasure.

“He’s going to be a natural spokesperson for the Christian faith and we just hope he does it well,” Kim said. . “When he plays basketball, there’s this way that he feels pleasure, and feels God’s pleasure. It’s not for any other purpose.”

Jeremy Lin, the Knicks’ Tim Tebow?

This morning I asked my sports reporter husband if he knew who Jeremy Lin was. He laughed and responded: “Do you know who Billy Graham is?” Feeling a little silly, I started reading up on the couch-surfing basketball star who is apparently taking the world by storm, or at least the NBA. “Forget Tebowing,” the Associated Press says. “Linsanity is the new sports sensation.”

Jeremy Lin - Brown Players Talk About the NBA Phenom

"He was a solid Ivy League player. But, if anyone who watched him in college tells you that they predicted this type of success, they're lying. No one thought he'd make the NBA much less be a star in the league.

Ironically, Lin wanted to attend Brown but the staff at the time wasn't too high on him because he was a scronny 6-foot guard. However, he grew 3 inches as a freshman at Harvard."

Jeremy Lin Is Raising Ticket Prices Across The NBA

The Knicks have capitalized on Linsanity, raising ticket prices an average 27% since Lin broke onto the scene with 25 points off the bench in a 99-92 win over the New Jersey Nets.

The Raptors have tickets listed for both games, and the price difference is immense. The cheapest seat in the house for Spurs-Raptors is a very affordable $12.50. That very same seat at the Knicks game the night before? $44.

Jeremy Lin and the limitations of the 'hard-working Asian American

My internet was flooded a bit sooner. My friend network on Facebook tends toward Asian Americans, many of them graduates of the Evil Eight and regular attendees of Sunday services. Over the last few months and weeks, the occasional Jeremy Lin note would burble up in my Facebook feed. So of everyone who claims him, it is perhaps the Asian Americans, and more particularly Young Asian American Christians of Certain Education, who claim him hardest. As the New York Times’ Michael Luo wrote, “It boils down to a welter of emotions from finally having someone I can relate to enter the public consciousness.”

 

成功與努力有很大的關係:林瘋去夏特訓開竅

上季投球命中率只有 38.9%的「 Linsanity」,如何在一個夏天的時間,將自己的命中率提升至現時的 48.9%

據報道,林書豪在去年夏天封館期間,接受私人訓練員 E.J. Costello的身體平衡和跳投特訓。

Lin found game on other side of the world

I’m a shooter,’’ Akognon said. “I’ll take 25 shots if that’s what my coach wants. He asked me what happens if I miss a lot and my team loses? He was afraid if he took two shots and missed one, he’d get pulled. I said, ‘You take thousands of shots over the summer. You know you can make them. Don’t stop when the lights come on.’ ’’ 與「 Linsanity」一起比賽過的東莞球員阿克格農( Josh Akognon、圖),在周二接受《 New York Post》電話訪問中表示, J.Lin曾因害怕被換出而不敢出手:「他害怕如果他投兩球,有一球不進的話,他會被換出。我跟他說:『你在夏天作了幾千球的投球練習,你知道你會投中的。』也跟他說了要相信自己。」

Lin uses his jumper, just like he was coached

Long before Linsanity took off, Jeremy Lin was alone with his trainer in a 24-Hour Fitness in Pleasanton, Calif. He was working on a lot of things -- balance, upper-body strength to absorb contact and still finish the play, and most impressively, his jump shot. Costello, who spent a couple of hours a day with Lin, four days a week from May through September in the Bay Area during the lockout, got his wish Tuesday night.

 

Five things you didn't know about Jeremy Lin

 

Lin helps His Agent to become famous

It was the equivalent of a cold call. The agent from San Antonio sent the Harvard coach some literature, and the Harvard coach passed it on to the family of the player. … Few others in basketball thought much of it. The agent was as nameless as the player. Montgomery has had a number of clients over the years. His only current NBA player, besides Lin, is former UT Longhorn Maurice Evans, now with the Wizards. Arn Tellem, in contrast, represents 39 current NBA players earning more than $215 million this season. He got Gary Payton, who has worked with Montgomery, to tutor Lin.

Jeremy Lin causes Linsanity in the NBA

Celebrities such as Spike Lee, Whoopi Goldberg, Mike Tyson, Mary J. Blige and Al Gore — who were all on hand at the Garden on Wednesday — are simply ticket holders in awe. …No,” he finally said. “But I believe in an all-powerful, all-knowing God who does miracles. Like Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow… Lin is eager to share his faith and his fan base is broader because of it.

My identity is in Christ and not in basketball,” Lin said this week. “I love playing basketball, and it's my job. But at the same time, I still recognize I’m a sinner and that’s not going to change regardless of how well I play on the court.”

Jeremy Lin, Tim Tebow Don't Have Much More Than Faith in Common

After Lin clinched a 90-87 victory for the Knicks with his three-point play against the Toronto Raptors in the final seconds of the game on Tuesday, the Chinese-American thanked his lord and savior after the tough win. The expression is one that many NFL fans have heard Tebow make after his victories. "I just thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ for that shot. I'm thankful that it went in," Lin said after the game. "Just a blessing. I'm extremely thankful and extremely humbled."

FIRST-PERSON: Linsanity, Tebow-mania & the evangelistic witness (Baptist Press)

The article describes Lin's desire to play "godly basketball." As his longtime pastor asserts about him, "Very early in his life he decided to pay heed to the call of Christ to take up the cross daily and follow after him." Cf. Jeremy Lin Testimony: Youtube; All Spheres of Life — Even Pro Basketball

Yes, I believe Tebow and Lin represent excellent examples of a new era of Christian athletes who are unashamed, as well as grounded in the historic faith once for all delivered to the saints. Christian "Linsanity" can happen anywhere. And we need more unsung, everyday Tebows and Lins for the cause of Christ.

好友向媒體爆料 林書豪為女友下廚

好友們也說,林書豪的基督信仰,讓他充滿喝酒與異性交往的大學生活中能保持對上帝的虔誠,自我克制,避免落入惡者圈套。另外,他是一個虔誠的基督徒。住在哈佛的宿舍時,林書豪和其他室友組了一個經班,並且邀好友派翠克、布蘭克諾等人參與。如果拒絕他,也只是付諸一笑,不會像老是想邀請你去教會的傳教士般煩人。他說,自己和林書豪常常討論如何避免高等教育所帶來的陷阱,「大學生活總是充斥著酒和各式各樣不同的女孩,我們常常討論怎麼克制自己,怎麼保持對上帝的虔誠,避免落入惡者圈套。」

 

范學德把採訪中信仰部分摘錄如下

所以惟有神在其中掌權,就像一件很簡單的事情,遇見會影響我生涯發展的教練,或者是神關上這扇門,卻奇蹟般的開啟另一扇門,有這麼多這樣的故事和事件,每一件事都看見神的作為在其中。我一直都想打進NBA,當這一切發生時,我知道神一直都在為我準備,我心中很明白,這就是神現在所要我做的。但是就像媽媽所說的那樣Donnie Nelson打電話來,他也是一位很虔誠的基督徒,當我在和他談話中,他說要知道神對我有一個完美的計劃,這(次失敗)可能只是一個需要挪開的小石塊,或是一個你需要跨越的小障礙。神是掌權,這是他(Donnie Nelson)對我的提醒,同時他也邀請我去參加夏季聯賽。

聖經裡面有很多我喜歡的章節,例如羅馬書53-5節,講到很多苦難如何磨練品格,產生忍耐,對我來說,每次當我被擊倒時,我會嘗試再站起來重新開始,我不喜歡放棄,我很固執。聖經也講到很多有關神如何用困難的環境來引導我們更親近他。

每次比賽後當我做下來時,我就禱告求問神,他的目的是什麼?我為什麼會在這裡?所以我一直和神在一起,他一直教導我要謙虛。過去這一年對我來說是很艱難的一年,但是也是我在神面前最多的一年。我可以見證說越是困難的時候,神真的是每一步都與我同行。他帶領我走過想放棄的每一刻

有幾場球我覺得打得很好,覺得上帝在控制我。當時我覺得自己打得好,事後想想自己也不敢相信當時怎麼能做到這些,也不知道是怎麼做到的,我只是覺得有人在帶領我。這時我真實的體會。我記得我在球賽後打電話給我哥哥,他問我是怎麼做到的,我說我不知道,我只覺得是神在掌控我。

但是對我來說,過去這一年,學習依賴上帝的意旨和他的恩典,就是要滿足於他所安置我所處的環境,如果不順利,我必須明白神有個完美的計劃,他比我更智慧。我要把我的慾望交給他,沒錯,我可以要些什麼,但是當我要寫什麼東西的時候,我必須確定要有正當的理由和動機。我想進NBA,是因為我要很多錢嗎?我想進NBA,使因為我要榮耀和名聲?還是因為我想進NBA,是因為我可以利用全國電視轉播和媒體,來宣揚我的信仰,來講神在我的生命中為我做了多少,而不是我自己做了多少才進入NBA。這裡有很多不同的想法,這裡有很多內心的自我反省,來檢查我的心和我的動機,基本上是如何定位我的信仰

為了打得好,我對自己施加了很多壓力,的確使我迷失了打球的目的。當我第一次簽約時,有那麼多媒體和那麼多粉絲,我覺得我必須打好每一場球,這樣大家才會高興。這是我一直面對的掙扎,因為我仍然是一個人,仍然生活在我的肉體中,但是我必須真正瞭解,我不是為球迷打球,不是為家人打球,甚至不是為我自己打球,我必須要為神的榮耀打球。當別人看到我打球,看到我打球的方式,看到我怎樣對待我的隊友,怎樣對待我的對手,怎樣對待其他人,這些都反映了神的形像,也反映了神的愛。這些都是我需要專注的,比贏球更重要的方面

他們(林指父母)對我的最大影響就是教我要先愛上帝,甚至在學校和家庭之上。這就是我的優先次序,也是我父母的優先次序。上帝就是一切。如果一切都很美好,但是如果你和神沒有好的關係,那麼一切就沒有意義了。還有就是他們在所有事情上都支持我。

所以惟有神在其中掌權,就像一件很簡單的事情,遇見會影響我生涯發展的教練,或者是神關上這扇門,卻奇蹟般的開啟另一扇門,有這麼多這樣的故事和事件,每一件事都看見神的作為在其中

我一直都想打進NBA,當這一切發生時,我知道神一直都在為我準備,我心中很明白,這就是神現在所要我做的。(摘錄完)

Jeremy Lin 對小牛隊的優美表現:(104 vs 97)

Unable to Bury Lin, the Mavericks Praise His Tactics and Tenacity

He is very humble and plays extremely hard no matter if he makes a mistake or makes a fantastic play,” Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd said.

 They often defended Lin with the 6-foot-7 Marion, who is athletic and physically imposing and whom the team owner, Mark Cuban, labeled the Mavericks’ defensive most valuable player.

He’s a feisty little thing,” he said of Lin. “I give him credit — he plays hard. You have to take certain things away from him. There were a thousand pick-and-rolls out there. It’s hard to guard him. That’s the hardest thing to guard in the league.”

Kidd said Lin was “playing extremely well.He is taking D’Antoni’s offense and he’s looking a little bit like Steve Nash out there,” Kidd said. He knows how to cut off, spin, and still get to his spots,” Nowitzki said.

Cuban: Lin's mental makeup sets him apart

Cuban believes Lin's mental makeup has played a big factor in his recent success.

Cuban said. "Not everyone has the mindset or the mental makeup that Jeremy does so he deserves all the credit."

Lin joins rare company on Sunday

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only four players since the 1977-1978 NBA-ABA merger -- Bernard King, Shaquille O’Neal, Brandon Jennings and Michael Jordan -- have scored more points in their first eight career starts than Lin’s 200.

Lin's Knicks bounce back with electrifying win over Mavericks

If this was a barometer game, the Knicks passed with flying colors. And after torching one of the league's stingiest defenses (through Feb. 18, the Mavs ranked fifth in points allowed at 91.1 per game), they might warrant consideration as a legitimate Eastern contender after all.

Jeremy Lin rebounds with best game yet

"Our chemistry has to get right," D'Antoni said. "Everybody has to adjust to everybody."

"We moved the ball and we had a lot of people contribute," the second-year guard said. "Across the board, the efficiency was there from everybody."

D'Antoni was impressed by Lin's ability to bounce back after his first loss as an NBA starter.

"You can't teach what's inside his heart. You can't teach that, and he has it. His heart is huge," D'Antoni said.

Mavs' Kidd dishes out praise for Lin

"He played great and he's playing great. It's a great story," said Kidd, who played under D'Antoni's system in the Olympics and called it "a point guard's dream."

Jeremy Lin's rise from ordinary guy to sensation

Before he was the subject of back-to-back Sports Illustrated cover stories Jeremy Lin was the subject of good-natured ridicule from his high-school buddies. But those in the Bay Area who knew the 23-year-old pre-Linsanity offer stories that inspire laughs and a reminder: He was, in many ways, an ordinary guy before he was a cultural icon.

Federer Seeks to Meet Knicks’ Jeremy Lin

That he was able to help the Knicks come through in the way he did is a great thing,” Federer, …. “I hope to meet him when I come to New York.” Federer said Lin’s story is “why we all follow sports.”

Jeremy Lin will have plenty of fans from the NY Mets in Miami Thursday night as Knicks battle the Heat

From Mark Zuckerberg to Woody Allen, Jeremy Lin has already drawn several American icons to NBA games this month - and the wattage at Thursday night's Knicks-Heat game is expected to include Mets past and present.

Reyes aside, the Mets' manager,…"I'm as enamored as anybody, because I think it's one of the great, great stories," Collins said.

NBA-Lin's big dream follows little prayer

In a small chapel at the Miami Heat's arena, New York Knicks sensation Jeremey Lin offered a simple prayer three weeks ago. The Taiwanese-American prayed that he not be cut by the Knicks and finally be given a chance in the National Basketball Association (NBA). "I came in late and I heard the chaplain praying for Jeremy to make the squad," Heat power forward Udonis Haslem

Obama: No time for Jeremy Lin and the Heat

No luck for Obama, though -- he had two fundraisers in Miami, plus a third later tonight in Orlando.

"I just want you to know I'm resentful," Obama joked to backers during an event at the Biltmore Hotel. "I'm not going to the game tonight."

"It's not right," the president said. "It's not fair."…"in another life, I would be staying for the Knicks-Heat game tonight then go up to Orlando for NBA All-Star Weekend."

The Pains Before a Star Was Born

The Knicks were in Boston on Feb. 3, battling the Celtics and fighting to save their season. On Feb. 3, Jeremy Lin looked like an overmatched, easily rattled, mistake-prone reserve. Van Gundy, who had just noted the Knicks’ lack of creative perimeter players, perked up, saying, “That’s a very nice play by Lin.” In my game notes that I literally write when I go in the office, I wrote, ‘I think Jeremy Lin is a pretty good player,’  “ Celtics Coach Doc Rivers told reporters Saturday. “Didn’t think this. But I should have had him sign it right after the game. I could have made millions.” Still, the 24-hour turnaround remains striking and difficult to explain.

Most of it is psychological,” D’Antoni said, adding: “Some guys are anointed and can get that confidence right off the bat. Some guys got to work through it. Some guys don’t do it. He just took the challenge.”

Knicks’ Chandler: Lin helping me keep my cool

I talked to Jeremy Lin and all of that, and he’s working on calming me down,” Chandler said. “I’m going to have to calm myself [down]. I’ve been spending some time with Jeremy Lin in chapel and everything’s fine.”

 



[6] His contract, potentially worth nearly $800,000, was not even guaranteed until Tuesday afternoon. So for the past six weeks, Lin, 23, has been sleeping in his brother Josh’s living room, waiting for clarity and career security. 林書豪目前已成為聯盟炙手可熱的新星,憑藉近期的驚人演出,已獲得紐約人一紙合約,可謂名利雙收,令這名一直寄居在哥哥「梳化」的紐約人新寵,可以有屬於自己的空間,據報林書豪已轉租了前紐約人球員李爾的一套兩房的豪華公寓。He has an older brother, Josh, and a younger brother, Joseph

林家三兒子都愛打球,為什麼只有書豪一路打進NBA

 

︰哥哥書雅小時候,我們跟其他亞洲父母一樣,對籃球不太懂,不知道除了要參加YMCA,還要參加各種的聯盟,哥哥因此錯過了初中可以打聯盟的時機,書豪運氣比較好,我在幫哥哥找球隊時,幫他一起找,就遇到很多好教練給他機會,幫助他進步,可說天時、地利、人和都在他身上,弟弟書緯沒這個運氣,高中就換了三個教練。
