What Jeremy Lin Learned From Gilbert Arenas's Sam Amick might be the best interviewer in the NBA media, and he has a doozy of a Q&A with exiled former All-Star Gilbert Arenas, who hasn't signed with a team after being waived under the amnesty clause by the Orlando Magic in December. The two-part Q&A touches on myriad subjects, but of timely note is an exchange on Gil's friendship with Jeremy Lin.

Here's Gil on Lin.

"[Lin] was a Warriors fan during the Agent Zero days. Then this summer when I went to play in the All-Warriors game, he was on the opposing side and he got a couple shots off, but I hit like five threes -- almost from half-court -- straight on him, and that's what he was laughing about. When we talked today, I was like, 'Man, that shot you hit on [Pau] Gasol, where you just looked him down, and then hit it -- that's the shot right there." He said, "Wait a minute, you did that shot to me five times."

Be sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2 of Amick's Q&A.
