And the winner is.........
Who cares? This is a fun ride with Jeremy Lin, just as the Jimmer craze last year was must see, must root for television.
The sports world is fickle, so let's just sit back, relax, and hope that the @fakegrimtweeper steers clear of these two insta-stars and they just Lin, Lin, Lin.
Until Next Time,
