When I was in 7th grade, I thought I was a pretty good basketballer. When our all star team played the 8th graders and lost 68 to 9, I knew I was mistaken.

The enormously loud sound I heard last night was people jumping off the Jeremy Lin bandwagon. He looked as over-hyped and overrated as TT. He looked as overwhelmed as  David without a slingshot against Goliath He looked as over-matched as I did that day against the 8th graders.  He looked  as uncertain as Bambi in headlights. He looked like the other teams who had let him go or passed him over might have been right after all.

And now comes the All Star break and a chance to worry. And wonder if Mr. Lin  must stay out of the kitchen, because  it appears that he can't stand the Heat.
