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.
The New York Giants will take the Super Bowl trophy on a parade up the “Canyon of Heroes” in lower Manhattan today, part of a two-state celebration of their second National Football League championship in five years.
As many as 1 million spectators may turn out for the traditional ticker-tape parade hosted by New York City, according to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office. The team will travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, later in the day to celebrate its 21-17 Super Bowl victory against the New England Patriots. The Giants also beat the Patriots to win the Super Bowl following the 2007 season.
