Houston Rockets star Jeremy Lin, anchor Jay Crawford make their This is SportsCenter debuts
Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin stars in the latest spot from ESPN’s This is SportsCenter franchise.
In the spot Lin, a Harvard graduate, suggests some colorful edits to SportsCenter anchor Jay Crawford’s script. The September shoot marked the first time Lin wore his Rockets jersey since he left the New York Knicks last summer. It is also the first SportsCenter spot featuring Crawford — colleague Hannah Storm makes a cameo — and (we believe) the first time “trajectory metrics” and “temporal nature” have been used in a SportsCenter script.
Though they both played home games in Madison Square Garden last winter during Lin’s meteoric rise to stardom as a Knick, they were introduced to each other in Bristol, Conn.
