More on Linsanity: 'For God and God's glory'

So says Jeremy Lin in response to a question from the New York Post's writer Steve Serby.

Q: You want to use that platform for what?

A: For God, for God's glory, and I think that's shown in a lot of different ways. It simply could be the way I live my life, what I talk about in my interviews, what I talk about through social media. It could be what I do in my spare time, what I do through my foundation ... just a lot of different areas ... how I spend my offseason.

Later in the Q&A, Lin gives this response:

Q: Would the best compliment for you be for someone to say, "He makes his teammates better"?

A: I think that would be the second-best compliment. The best would be, "When I see Jeremy play, I see him play for God and I see him bring joy on the court."

Lin is currently single, but not without plenty of offers for marriage. And he has a clear view of what kind of woman he intends to marry.

Q: Describe your ideal mate.

A: First she would really love God and be a faithful Christian, and then after that, I think, a desire to serve other people, to help with the underprivileged, do a lot of social work ... great personality and easy to be around. Someone that's definitely chill, low key, low maintenance.

As for me, I'm getting a firsthand look at Jeremy Lin tonight, as I will be attending the Knicks v. New Orleans Hornets at Madison Square Garden, tip-off at 8 p.m.
