As you know- I am a not a born New Yorker. I had to spend a month supporting the Giants on the air even though I live and die with the Redskins. When it comes to basketball I have been a Celtics fan for 25 years–literally. I always liked the Knicks cuz of my grandpa but it was never too passionate for obvious Celtic pride. That said– I would be lying if I said that I was not obsessed with this kid. This is the most dramatic entrance into pro sports that I can recall. He is an underdog, a minority, a Harvard grad, a good religious kid, and he has a magnetic style to the way he plays the game. I was in the Garden on Friday to see young Jeremy take on Kobe and it was one of the best events I have ever been to. I am happy for Asian Americans and I am happy for New York in general, because this is just pure fun.
