Jeremy Lin appreciates the support of President Barack Obama. He hopes to be able to thank him for it one day in person.
Obama, speaking with ESPN’s Bill Simmons, said he’s been keeping on eye on Lin since the Knicks guard was in Harvard.
The president said Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education and a former Harvard player, gave him a heads up on Lin “way back when.”
“I can’t take credit for it, but I was there early,” Obama told Simmons.
