Give it to Lin to say it how it is. And good luck on the next chapter of your amazing career, Jeremy. 

And if you are not one of the thousands of viewers of Jeremy Lin's Skype chat this week with a 5 year old named Naim and his family check the link out below. Naim was reportedly devastated by the Knicks decision to not match the Houston Rockets offer. 

When time came for the Skype chat with Jeremy, young Naim was nearly speechless. Most telling is Lin's attention and patience to chatting with Naim and his family. With the awkward silence waiting for 5 year old Naim to chat with Jeremy (Naim barely made a peep), and with Naim's parents filling in the silence with chatter, a typical phony-baloney big-headed basketball star would have said thanks and good bye. But Lin seemed to be sincerely interested in having a conversation with young Naim and his parents and gave the family quality time. Kudos to Lin for being a class act.
