Bill Simmons did his latest BS Report with President Obama, and of course the conversation quickly turned to Jeremy Lin.
Simmons joked Obama is now not the most famous Harvard grad, and that Lin had taken his place.
“Jeremy Lin is doing good. And I knew about Jeremy before you did, or everybody else did, because Arne Duncan, my Secretary of Education was captain of the Harvard team. 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. 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. So I’ve been on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon for a while.”
So there you have it, Obama knew about Lin way before you did.
