Jeremy Lin, the 23-year old phenom of the New York Knicks, has exploded onto the scene the last couple weeks. Where did he come from? Perhaps from the same realm of obscurity that Kurt Warner emerged from in 1999. Or, perhaps Palo Alto, California. The Chinese – Taiwanese has given basketball fans something to talk about this season. To what does he attribute his success, though? The scrappy ex-Harvard star would probably give you all the cliched answers, work hard, practice, eat lots of Taco Bell’s Beefy Crunch Burritos , etc., but those who know him say something different.
Former Palo Alto High teammate Elwood “The Stick” Martin reports “We’d always play Kanye West at practice, and Jeremy would go over to the stereo and put in something called “Bonded By Blood” or “Reign In Blood” or something and would suddenly be transformed into a little Magic Johnson. We eventually got used to it and stopped arguing with him about it.” Former Harvard teammate Stumpy McGraves added “Jeremy would get us all going by playing stuff like Dark Angel, Sodom, and Anthrax. The team’s theme song became “Extreme Aggression” by a band called Kreator, with a ‘K’.” Current NBA teammate Carmelo Anthony has even been seen lately wearing Overkill and Xentrix T-shirts. “Jeremy is out to revolutionize basketball with that thrash noise, It ain’t too bad though, after you get used to it.” stated Anthony.
前Palo Alto高中校隊球員Elwood “The Stick” Martin說:「我們大都在練習時放 Kanye West的歌，不過書豪會走到錄音機旁，放“Bonded By Blood”或是“Reign In Blood”之類鬧哄哄的歌，然後他就會爆氣變成魔術強森。我們後來也慢慢習慣這些音樂 ，就沒跟他爭著放別的音樂。」 前哈佛校隊球員Stumpy McGraves 補充: 「書豪會放些Dark Angel、Sodom和Anthrax樂團 的歌給我們練球聽。我們的隊歌變成Kreator樂團的”Extreme Aggression”。」 現任NBA球員Carmelo Anthony不久前也被發現穿著Overkill和Xentrix樂團的t-shirt。 Anthony表示:「書豪從鞭金音樂獲得革命性的籃球能量。只要你聽久了，就會覺得還挺不 錯的。」 林書豪練球歌單： Exodus: Bonded By Blood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bN78B1wigCE
