Jeremy Lin & James Harden are not only a dynamic duo on the basketball court, they make quite a tandem in the locker room as well, according to a blog in Rant Sports.

The two have made an effort to make everyone feel a part of the team, even players demoted to the D League, the NBA’s developmental or farm league system.

“He texted me after almost every game, especially if I did good,” Terrence Jones said about Lin. “I texted him after his games, too, when I was down there. I talked to James (Harden) after almost every game. A lot of guys checked with me, but J-Lin especially. J-Lin was always texting everybody. J-Lin texted me every game pretty much every time I went down.”

Lin himself was sent down to the D league several times during his year with the Golden State Warriors.

“I know what it’s like. A little something like that, keeping up with them, making sure they feel a part of the team, and giving them that confidence,” said Lin.  “I think that’s really important for their growth as a player. I think for me, I still remember the D-League like yesterday. I still try to encourage them. Anything I can do to help them, I try to do.”
