Jeremy Lin went from being a backup point guard at the end of the Knicks’ bench to the Eastern Conference Player of the Week

In a little more than a week, Jeremy Lin went from being a backup point guard at the end of the Knicks’ bench to the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.The NBA announced Lin had won the award yesterday, which was all but a foregone conclusion after the way “Linsanity” enveloped the Knicks, and the rest of the league, over the past week. Playing without Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, Lin started four games and averaged 27.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 2.0 steals in four Knicks wins. He became the first player in NBA history to finish his first four starts with at least 20 points and seven assists, and his 109 points over those four games are the most by any player in his first four career starts since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976.
