VIDEO: Jeremy Lin Is Knicks' Biggest Star In Win

For a team that pays Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler a combined $7.2 billion per season*, the New York Knicks got a hugely valuable performance from the quite-cheap second-year point guard Jeremy Lin on Saturday. Lin, the league's only current Ivy League product, dropped 25 points, seven assists and five rebounds on notable opponent Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets as the Knicks pulled a 99-92 win in Madison Square Garden.

Clearly, Lin is the type of player the Knicks' faithful can get behind.

From the New York Times' Howard Beck:

Rapturous chants of "Je-re-my!" filled the arena. Every fourth-quarter basket was met with a booming, "Jeremy Linnnnn!" from the public-address announcer, Mike Walczewski. When the final buzzer sounded, Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" blasted from the arena sound system in tribute.

This is a wonderful development for the Blue and Orange.

Here are some video highlights of Lin's monumental performance.
