Now I know most of you are probably thinking that I'm referencing to the incredible performances that Jeremy Lin has displayed over the last week, but in reality I'm suggesting that he may actually be "The Beast" as referenced in the Book of Revelations
Let's start off with something basic and simple to point out:
The Book of Revelations says that the first Beast comes out of the sea and is given power by The Dragon.
Jeremy Lin a few weeks ago played one game for the Erie Bayhawks which is close to Lake Erie the fourth largest lake in North America. His performance took place just around the Lunar New Year, The Year of the Dragon.
Not convinced yet?
Let's delve into some deeper stats.
In Minnesota's game, we all saw that the Knicks had a strong chance of losing from their performance, yet as Lin missed his first free throw, he seemed unfazed and made his second free throw cooly.
Here are some of Lin's stats during that game that weren't that great:
You see the 8-24 shooting as 33% made, but you can also say he missed 66% of his shots. You can also see 6 rebounds
66% missed shots and 6 turnovers and 6 rebounds. Coincidence? Maybe
Take a look at Lin's 4 starts dating back from Minnesota's game to the Utah game, the number 6 is very evident.
In the Lakers game Lin had 6 turnovers
In the Washington game Lin took 6 free throws
In the Utah game he missed 66% of his 3 pointers but just happened to make his last one (which was a pretty memorable buzzer beater)
A little harder look at his stats reveals that if you add all the minutes he started (158) and multiply it by the number of starts (4) then add the number of points he's averaged during those starts (27) and finally add the product of numbers of his player number (1 x 7 = 7) you get 666.
Too much time on my hands? Definitely
On another note, the Book of Revelations describes a Second Beast in chapter 13. Amar'e Stoudemire is planning to return to practice on February 13. Knicks are also aiming for their 6th straight win. Expect Linsanity in that game.
