I’m sure most of ya’ll have already heard. New York failed to keep the star player that brought them back into the spotlight and now Lin is officially a Rocket. Whether you’re pissed at the owners or you’re indifferent about the situation, here’s one unchanging perspective on the player himself.
ARTIST STATEMENT: This poem and video was originally conceptualized at the height of Linsanity as one in a trilogy. The other two poets did in fact write amazing poems about the same player, but when Jeremy Lin went down with an injury, the whole plan was put indefinitely on hold. The recent (and baffling) vitriol that sports media outlets have thrown Jeremy Lin’s way escalated the timeline, and this is still just the first of three poem videos that will be released. Keep your eyes peeled. (July 17, 2012)
