In Miami Heat's Chapel, Jeremy Lin Prayed A Month Ago He'd Make the Knicks Squad
The story comes from, of all places, the Heat's Udonis Haslem. The future mayor of Miami tells Reuters TV that he frequently visits the team's chapels before games.
"I came in late and I heard the chaplain praying for Jeremy to make the squad," Haslem says.
"We have all been shown tremendous favor and blessed to be in this position and we use these gifts in the way that he wants us to use them. He gave us these abilities to go out and play this game the way that we are capable of playing. I don't see anything wrong with that," says Haslem.
Lin's story has also had the perhaps positive effect of taking some of the NBA media spotlight off of the Miami Heat. Since the initiation of Linsanity, the Heat have only lost one game and are on a seven-game win streak.
