Linsanity and Iglesia
March 7, 2012
Anthony Iglesia, son of CEO Karen Iglesia and husband Gerard, met New York Nicks sensation Jeremy Lin long before he became the talk of the town. Anthony, a basketball sensation in his own rite, who apeared on the Ellen Degeneres due to an association with Michael Jordan, spent some time with the unknown Lin during a trip to Harvard in 2009. The two shot around, and talked about basketball for hours, and have kept in touch ever since. Anthony cosiders Lin to be a friend. In a D & C article published February 12th, Anthony was quoted as saying “I’m a lucky kid.”
Lin’s popularity saored, when he unexpectedly led the NY Knicks on a 5-0 run this year, while their star players were sidelined.
Anthony, who plays on two AAU basketball teams, plans to go to McQuaid next year, and is considering wearing the #17, in honor of Jeremy Lin.
