I only really care about NBA Finals because of one person: Jeremy Lin. Sure he might not have played in the NBA finals… but his team is playing in the finals. Sure he might be a journeyman player who’s played for 8 teams over 9 seasons… but his current team is playing in the finals. And most importantly, his team… the Toronto Raptors… just won the NBA finals.
And Jeremy Lin now has an NBA ring. How many Asian American’s can say that?
