Jeremy Lin Gets Thumbs up from Kobe & Magic. Likely to Start

posted by Randall

Jeremy Lin Wax StatueLaker Nation is reporting that Steve Nash is likely to be ruled out for the entire season due to nerve issues.

The development, barring a trade, leaves no doubt Jeremy Lin will start for the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

Lin returned from an ankle injury on Tuesday after sitting out a week. He’s gained the confidence of Kobe Bryant.

“Jeremy Lin makes a big difference,” said Bryant. “He creates shots for others. You have somebody else who can penetrate and make plays for others, put pressure on the defense. It’s a really big difference.”

Lin says he’s feeling good about the relationship he’s developing with Kobe.

“Im very comfortable,” said Lin.  “Being comfortable with him is more like having a relationship. Him empowering me. Stay aggressive. Take those shots. When you have someone known for closing games and he’s trying to empowering me, that’s huge. Every player, especially a young player. That’s probably one of the most important things.”

Lin also got the endorsement of Laker’s legend Magic Johnson who sent out this tweet.

You can hear why Lin called Kobe Bryant a watchdog in a video on Laker Nation.
