Maybe you haven't noticed, but Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, the Chinese-American phenom out of Harvard, is gaining quite a bit of attention.
He is sweeping the NBA, one game at a time.
And when you look at the numbers, it is easy to understand why Lin is getting the accolades. They seem to be well-earned.
The previously little-used, second-year man has statistically out-performed Kobe Bryant - who comes to the Garden Friday night with the Lakers to try and slow down The Mighty Lin (r.) - LeBron James and, yes, even Michael Jordan in their first two NBA starts.
