|Lin dribbles against Muskies'/Wolves' Ricky Rubio|
The team was the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the throwback jersey is from the Minnesota Muskies of the old American Basketball Association (ABA), the league that gave us the three-point shot, Dr. J, red-white-blue basketballs and small-market teams like the Virginia Squires, which played occasionally in Roanoke.
The Muskies played one season, 1967-68, and not much is remembered about them.
Lin, of course, is the Asian-American, Harvard grad who has led the Knicks to five straight wins and doesn't exactly fit the demographic of the NBA player. His bro-in-arms with the Knicks is a white Stanford grad. Strange times we live in.
