ESPN’s Bill Simmons interviews President Barack Obama and touch on the topic of Jeremy Lin. As an avid basketball fan, the President has followed Lin before the LINsanity. With his Harvard connections, he’s been on the LIN bandwagon for awhile. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan played basketball at Harvard. “And so way back when, Arne and I were playing and he said, ‘I’m telling you, we’ve got this terrific guard named Jeremy Lin at Harvard,’ ” Obama said. “And then one of my best friends — his son is a freshman at Harvard — and so when he went for a recruiting trip he saw Lin in action.” See the 1:40 mark for the full Presidential remarks on Lin. Could a White House invite be far away for Jeremy Lin?
