In a press conference a couple of days ago in Beijing, Lin says he is expecting at least 80 kids to attend the camp.

Lin is a very huge draw because of his Asian heritage in the homeland of former NBA star Yao Ming, a former Houston Rockets center.

Linsanity is over for now as Lin tears meniscus

It was not long ago this current NBA season that the New York Knicks had tried out three point guards before settling on Jeremy Lin, who had been cut by Golden State and Houston.

He became an instant world-wide star in the NBA with back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers but now his season has ended.

The 23-year-old Lin will miss the rest of the regular season due to knee surgery that will keep him out of action six weeks. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs, he might be able to comeback in the Eastern Conference finals.

Lin had an MRI recently that showed a small, chronic meniscus tear.

Lin was having a great season for a player who had bounced around for the first few weeks at the start. He averaged 14.1 points, 6.1 assists.

Lin became the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA, and took the Knicks on a seven-game winning streak which was surprising with a team that has Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as its star players.

The New York Knicks were supposed to be led by Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.

But instead, they’re being led by the Lin factor and the results are very good.

Jeremy Lin did not have to score a lot of points on Wednesday night in the New York Knicks, 100-85 win over the Sacramento Kings.

The Harvard grad handed out a career-best 13 assists as the Knicks reached the .500 mark and won its seventh straight game.

Lin, a point guard, scored 10 points in a Knicks offense that shot 51 percent from the floor.

Lin scored 136 points in his first five starting assignments, most by any NBA player since the league merged with the ABA in 1976.

Lin is the reigning NBA Eastern Conference player of the week. He played 26 minutes in the game and sat out the end of the third quarter and all of the fourth quarter.

New York is 15-15 on the season.

This is the first time since the end of last season that the Knicks have won seven-in-a-row.

Celebrities at the game included former vice president Al Gore and former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson.

Jeremy Lin canned a three-point basket with less than a second to play, allowing the New York Knicks a 90-87 comeback win over the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night.

The win extends the Knicks winning streak to six games.

Lin made a pull-up jumper from the top of the key with half a second to play, giving New York their first lead since the first quarter.

Lin scored 27 points and a career-high 11 assists in his first game since being selected as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

On a down note, Lin did commit 8 turnovers.

The 23-year-old Lin, a 6’3, 200-pound guard from Los Angeles, played at Harvard from 2006-2010.

Lin finished his career as the first player in the history of the Ivy League to record at least 1,450 points (1,483), 450 rebounds (487), 400 assists (406) and 200 steals (225). He graduated from Harvard in 2010 with a degree in economics and a grade-point average of 3.1.

He played in 2010-2011 with the Golden State Warriors.
