Shawn Marion pretends like he doesn’t know Jeremy Lin’s name
Is there anyone not swept up in the hoopla surrounding the NBA’s latest sensation, Jeremy Lin? Apparently Shawn Marion is not impressed.
With Marion and the Mavericks taking on the Knicks in The Garden on Sunday, Shawn was asked if he was prepared for Linsanity.
“For who? His name is Lin. It’s Jeremy Lin, right?” Marion said Friday, according to Mavs beat writer Dwain Price.
It should be interesting to see how Lin responds if Marion, who has done a tremendous job of shutting down points guards this season, matches up with him when the Knicks are on offense. If Lin responds the way he did the last time an opposing player disrespected him, it will be a long night for the Mavs.
