You know how we know Jeremy Lin is special? The milk shake created in his honor and the $40,000 his game-worn jersey pulled in on eBay are decent indicators, but the photo above takes it to an entirely new level. According to ESPNNewYork.com, Lin’s high school coach Peter Diepenbrock said during a radio interview that he was going to bring Jeremy’s Pal Alto High School jersey to Madison Square Garden in hopes that Spike Lee would wear it. As you can see, Lee was all for it.
Lee reached out to the coach when he heard about the idea so he could make sure it happened. Diepenbrock had one of his former players deliver the No. 4 jersey to Lee’s people. As we all know, Spike is arguably the biggest Knicks fan on the planet. He’s certainly the most recognizable. It should be noted, however, that the Knicks streak was broken on Friday night. I’m guessing that will be the first and last time Lee rocks the Palo Alto colors at the Garden.
