Jeremy Lin Does AMA On Reddit

Jeremy Lin was a pretty big name in the NBA in 2012 — the rookie point guard came out of nowhere with a remarkable run with the New York Knicks, coining the phenomenon of "Lin-sanity."

The 27-year-old point guard — who now plays for the Charlotte Hornets — did a surprise AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit on Thursday night.

There were some pretty great questions posed to Lin, but these are some of our favourites:

He started out by sharing some goofy gifts he's received

Then showed us all what a wonderful nerd he really is

He even admitted to fan-girling but we can't really blame him...

Mr. Bryant himself doesn't even get special treatment

Fans made sure to fill him in on missed opportunities 

The 6side even got a shoutout

And he showed us his Harvard education taught him something

May the "Lin-sanity" forever live in our hearts.
