After leading the Knicks to a 5-game winning streak with his phenomenal play, undrafted free agent point guard Jeremy LIn has officially been inducted into the James Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame for his “ability to help a consistently bad Knicks team win games against other NBA teams.”
Lin has scored at least 20 points and tallied at least seven assists in his last five games and has shocked the basketball world with his out-of-nowhere superstar-like play.
“I can’t say I’m surprised, but I always thought it would take me at least a few good weeks of basketball to enter the Hall of Fame,” said Lin at his induction ceremony in Springfield, Massachusetts. “I know I’m not actually that good of a basketball player but, when anyone can help a dysfunctional franchise like the Knicks win, like myself, they should be properly rewarded for their achievement. The funny thing is that I probably won’t keep playing this well and I wouldn’t even be surprised if I was out of the league by the start of next season.”
Lin is currently the youngest member of the Hall at 23 years of age, but is being closely chased for the record by fellow point guard, 21-year-old Ricky Rubio of the T-Wolves, who is supposedly being considered for induction as well because of the Spaniard’s “wavy, luscious hair” and the fact that “he wasn’t born in the U.S., but someplace where they take siestas every day.”
