Carmelo Anthony Is ‘Happy’ For Jeremy Lin

I’m not sure what my favorite part of the Jeremy Lin free agency drama has been. Perhaps it’s that the previously unheard of Harvard grad, who was sleeping on his brother’s couch before getting a second chance last season, has parlayed his brief success into a huge contract.
