Jeremy also gets comment from superstars from different sports;

1 Kobe Bryant, LA Lakers star; “What the fudge is going on?”

2 Floyd Mayweather, boxing superstar on twitter; “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.”

3 Steve Nash, NBA player; “If you love sports you have to love what Jeremy Lin is doing. Getting an opportunity and exploding”.

According to yahoo news Jeremy is now the fastest growing athlete brand worth $ 14 Million. His Jersey number 17 sales are so strong.
