Jeremy Lin Gets a Strain of Weed Named After HimBy: Heather Campobello - March 9, 2012
My favorite rapper, Rick Ross, instagrammed a photo of new “Linsanity OG” weed that he found while shopping a pot stops in L.A. today.
The new and ample strain of weed is rumoured to be named after Jeremy Shu-How Lin.
In February 2012, Lin was on a winning streak and has just been promoted to the starting lineup. Lin’s awesomeness generated a global following known as Linsanity, and he is being called the “New York Savior.”
Lin is one of the few Asian Americans in NBA history, and the first American player in the league to be of Chinese or Taiwanese descent.
Linsanity posted the following message on their Facebook page yesterday: “Linsanity is over? No, Lin’s had doubters his whole life. He was unrecruited and undrafted out of college. He was cut by two other NBA teams and was one of the last players to come off the Knicks bench. Once he got his start, he scored the most points by a player in his first 5 starts than any player in NBA history. He also led a Knicks team without Amar’e and Carmelo to a 7 game winning streak. Throughout all the hype that has been surrounding him, he has remained incredibly humble and genuine. What all the critics can’t measure in the statistics is his heart and desire to succeed.”
I hope that the birth of this strain amplifies Lin’s career and increases his Linsanity following.
