Jeremy Lin was officially introduced as a Laker at his press conference on Thursday morning, fielding well over 25 minutes of questions from the eager media. Traded from the Houston Rockets, Lin said he was genuinely surprised when he received the call that he had been traded to the Lakers. Kupchak earlier revealed that this is their third attempt at acquiring Lin over the years.
