Jeremy Lin, the New York Knicks' newest guard who has made headlines recently for his openness about his faith and moves on the basketball court, said he is inspired by NFL player Tim Tebow, another Christian player noted for his displays of faith.
In an interview with 95.7 The Game in San Francisco, located a short distance from his hometown of Palo Alto, Lin spoke about his respect for the Denver Broncos quarterback.
"Actually a lot of inspiration just because (Tebow's) such a polarizing figure but I think the things he says in interviews, his approach to the game is just unbelievable and I respect him so much," Lin said on Thursday. "I want to be able to do some of the things that he does in terms of the amount of charity work and the nonprofit work, and the way he impacts people off the field. I think that is what is most inspiring to me about him." more >>
