This is when things start getting weird. On SportsCenter this morning, ESPN flashed a graphic which made me take a double-take. Apparently, in Tebow’s fifth start last season, he went 9-for-20 and scored the game-winning touchdown against the Jets in the last minute of play. In Jeremy Lin’s fifth start this season, he went 9-for-20 and scored the game-winning three-pointer against the Raptors with just 0.5 seconds left.
I have heard the comparisons for the past week and have been happy to dismiss them, but this may have brought me back… a little.
