NBA Sensation Jeremy Lin's Playlist Features Christian Music

Jeremy Lin

Buzz from the basketball court has been centering on New York Knicks' rookie Jeremy Lin.  The NBA up-and-comer, who hails from California and played at Harvard, continues to deliver game-winning shots, making him a replay star.  Lin's rise to fame and miracle moves are literally called "Linsanity" by commentators now.

CBN News reports that Jeremy Lin is being compared to Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow -- as Lin also has a deep Christian faith.

"Basically, [I] try to trust in God and have faith in whatever circumstances that I am going through," Lin said, according to "And be able to try to grow as a person and learn, and become tougher."

Lin's strong faith is reflective even in his music picks.  In a video posted by Fuse, Lin says that his playlist features Christian rapper Lecrae and worship band Hillsong UNITED.

Here's Jeremy Lin explaining why he loves these two Christian music artists:
