This is perhaps a little late, but hey -- Linsanity hasn't totally worn off, has it?
Following Monday night's 100-92 loss to the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin tracked down Nets power forward Kris Humphries to offer a few kind words of encouragement. Humphries, you may remember, was briefly married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian and his reputation still suffers to this day in the eyes of those not quite enchanted with celebrity marriages.
Earlier Tuesday on ESPN Radio's "The Scott Van Pelt Show," Humphries recalled how Lin found him in the tunnel outside the locker room for a quick chat.
"He's a really nice guy," said Humphries, who met Lin at an autograph signing in Los Angeles at the All-Star Game last year. "He just said, 'Hey, I don't know why they boo you, but I think it's crap, and you're playing really well.' That was nice of him to say. He's a really nice guy. ... It's nice to see great things happen for nice people."
Well, there you have it. Lin's a nice guy, aside from a surprisingly adept point guard. Hopefully that does it for your daily dose of Linsanity.
