Over the past 12 days, Jeremy Lin’s success has transcended basketball and mesmerized fans the world over, and the captivating 23-year-old is proving he’s not the flash in the pan his few detractors would like him to be.
Once an unknown benchwarmer — one whom Madison Square Garden security regularly mistook for a trainer — Lin added another chapter to his storybook journey Wednesday night, putting on a passing clinic, dishing out 13 assists to go with 10 points in 26 minutes during the Knicks’ 100-85 win over the visiting Sacramento Kings.
Charles Barkley didn’t hold back on going in on Lebron’s hairline tonight on TNT. Charles broke down the time line of Lebron’s headband from when he first got in the league till now. I was crying laughing watching this..Bron Bron is going have a shaved head next season.
Guess the #KobeSystem really does work
Not only is Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant currently leading the NBA in scoring (30.2 ppg as of 1/26), he also tops the League in player earnings according to a report by Forbes.com. According to Forbes, Bryant’s earnings from his NBA salary and endorsement deals is over $53 million for 2012. Unfortunately a large portion of that money will be going to his soon-to-be ex wife Vanessa in a divorce settlement.
Following Bryant on the Forbes list is LeBron James at $49 mil, with $33 mil of that total coming via endorsements. Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard is a distant third at $28.9 mil, with Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade ($27.7 mil) and NY Knicks forward Caremlo Anthony ($26.5 mil) rounding out the top five.
