Jeremy Lin is the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

I mentioned this in the mamphibitiles below, but it probably deserves its own post. After averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 assists, and several thousand spectator swoons per game, Jeremy Lin was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the week of February 6th to February 12th (also known as possibly the best week of my life as a Knicks fan).

Jeremy's unique path to P of the W makes the award particularly special. Check this out, via Ken Berger:

Jeremy Lin becomes the first player to earn player-of-the-week honors in NBA and D-League. Won it last season with Reno Bighorns.

That's pretty awesome. Like I said before (though, at the time, Lin's excellence had only lasted one game), no matter what happens with the returns of Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony and thereafter, we'll always have this week in which Lin almost single-handedly lifted the team to a perfect stretch of games. I've never seen anything quite like it.

Congratulations, Jeremy. So many congratulations. Can I kiss you? Ha ha, that's all right. I was just kidding anyway. Ha ha.
