After David Lee held his standard postgame interview session in front of his locker, Ethan Sherwood Strauss asked David Lee about Jeremy Lin. Lee and Lin were teammates at Golden State, and Lee rescued Lin from having to continue sleeping on his brother’s couch by allowing Lin to stay in his New York apartment.
At first I thought Lee seemed a little less than enthused when Lin was brought up. “The first Linsanity question! Took a minute,” Lee said.
Then Lee talked for a little while about what Lin’s recent success means for other players who are struggling to make it in the NBA. He also said that he talks to Lin “about 30 minutes a day.” Was he serious about that? You be the judge.
