HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – We’ve got the fever around here, too.
Jeremy Lin fever, that is.
We’re not immune. We’re not crazy either. Lin is for real, folks. Seven straight wins, each one with Lin playing the biggest role for his team, is real!
We’re fully aware that the movement has swelled to epic proportions in recent days and will continue to do so until someone finds a way to slow down the Knicks’ point guard dynamo.
That’s why he cracked the Top 10 of this week’s KIA Race to the MVP Ladder, at No. 10, joining another point guard in crashing the party. Spurs All-Star Tony Parker steps into the mix as well, one spot ahead of Lin, as his team rides a league-best nine-game win streak.
Another point guard, Chris Paul of the Clippers, is making the most serious move up the ranks, though. He’s led the one of the most dramatic turnarounds in the league this season by guiding that other team in Los Angeles to the upper echelon of the Western Conference standings. He moves into the Top 3, behind LeBron James and Kevin Durant and one spot ahead of Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
Check out the list to see who sits where with All-Star Weekend just a week away.
And remember, this is a fluid list. You can play your way on or you can play your way off, but nothing is guaranteed.
