“I love him to death; wherever he goes, I just root for Jeremy Lin.”said Michelle Yu, 45, told the South China Morning Post.
First the Knicks and now the Houston Rockets have not shied away from marketing Lin’s ethnicity. That’s a tradition in American sports that goes back a long ways. Italian fans intensified their love for the Yankees with the arrival of Joe Dimaggio and later Yogi Berra.
Sandy Koufax’ background didn’t go unnoticed with Jewish fans either.
No surprise then that many of Lin’s fans have changed their allegiance each time he changes teams.
