Two-time league MVP and future
Hall of Famer, Steve Nash
believes Jeremy Lin is legit -
and Eye On Sports agrees.
Just a couple of days ago, I said New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin was very Steve Nash-like in his play before going on to say that he’s a legitimate starter.
Well, apparently, Nash himself aggress with yours truly Eye On Sports readers!
The Phoenix Suns’ two-time league MVP and future Hall of Famer, went on record on Wednesday to share his two cents on the league’s most surprising sensation, via Twitter.
|Eye On Sports says|
Jeremy Lin is one heady player!
"Every team in the league runs pick-and-rolls, so I don't see why you would discredit what he's done or qualify it," Nash said of Lin, who is averaging a whopping 26.8 points and eight assists during New York's five-game winning streak. "I think he's been outstanding regardless."
On Wednesday, Nash posted the following on Twitter.
"If you love sports, you have to love what Jeremy Lin is doing. Getting an opportunity and exploding!!"
It’s nice to hear an elite player not feel threatened or jealous by someone else’s success while going on record to actually give the young man some praise – but then again, that’s why he’s the beloved Steve Nash!
