Jeremy Lin never backs down from proving his doubters wrong, and this season is no different. Many pundits and fans alike didn’t think he could handle a starting job, especially in a major market, and yet here he is, four games into a new season averaging 16 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds a game, on a 1-3 team however.

He also talks about his love for New York, his family, how his game has evolved, the future of the Nets franchise, and much more.
