Tommy Amaker coached Jeremy Lin for three years at Harvard. He joined Boomer & Craig today to talk about his former player taking New York by storm and whether or not he sees the 23-year-old point guard being able to sustain his recent success.
Right off the bat, Craig liked Amaker’s take on the toughness of Lin, and his ability to play best when the lights are shining the brightest — which bodes well considering how bright the lights shine in the Big Apple.
When asked if he believes that it is realistic to expect Lin to have sustained success with the Knicks, Amaker said that he thinks he does, pointing to a combination of everything he brings to the table and the system Mike D’Antoni runs.
