With the unfortunate news that Steve Nash has suffered yet another setback, it’s possible that Jeremy Lin is about to have a very big role in his first season in Los Angeles. After Wednesday’s practice, Lin talked about what he’s already learned from Steve Nash and what he hopes to emulate in the future.
