Jeremy Lin, the Brooklyn Nets new point guard and his team mates stood with locked arms around each other's shoulders in a show of solidarity against violence in minority communities as the Natonal Anthem played before the first preseason game last night against the Detroit Pistons at Barclays Center.

Lin said, "This isn't anti-cops, this country needs cops...This isn't anti-minorities, this country needs minorities. This is what makes our nation great. We need more of both and we need compassion, more sympathy where guys can take the time and really put themselves in somebody else's shoes."

Lin has matured since his explosive NBA debut. For the October 6, 2016 full story by Tom Lorenzo at and a photo of the team looking arms around each other in solidarity, read here. 

The photo you see here is one I photographed back in March, 2012 (can't believe that was 2012 - time flies!) when I was in the locker room with Jeremy Lin at Madison Square Garden during a Knicks game at the height of Jeremy's "Linsanity" days.
