Apparently Jeremy Lin’s TIME magazine cover is causing a little bit of controversy since he’s only have five games and other notable basketball stars have never had this cover.
Yes, Jeremy Lin after starting a grand total of five games for the New York Knicks made the cover of Time.
Kobe Bryant has never been on the cover of Time. Same goes for Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning and just about every other active athlete in professional sports today. LeBron James made the cover as part of Time’s preview of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The Olympics are one of the only times that Time puts a sports subject on the cover with Bode Miller, Michael Johnson (twice) and Carl Lewis making the cut.
Congratulations Jeremy. You have now made the cover of Time the same number of times as Michael Jordan. Linsanity reigns on.
This is EbenGregory.com…telling you they’re covering Lin because in 7 games he became a bridge connecting the East to the West. His presence is the catalyst that will and might share the NBA experience to 2 billion (estimate) people in Asia. That is all.
