Jeremy Lin New York Apartment

Betting on the NBA in 2012 was expected to skyrocket in the USA and portions of Asia, primarily the Philippines, with New York Knicks Chinese-American rookie player Jeremy Lin scoring in double digits yet again and propelling his team to a 5th straight victory on the road in Minnesota.  (Find the latest NBA odds and the earliest lines here at Bookmaker.eu, which welcomes all players from around the world.)

Lin took center stage last week guiding his team towards a .500 record with impressive scoring runs while other key players remain out with injuries.  Jeremy Lin is already being touted as a “Marketing wet dream” by at least one Public Relations Specialist.  As a result of his new found success, China, Taiwan and the Philippines announced plans to broadcast a number of Knicks games live during the month of February.  Philippines NBA betting traffic – during the Playoffs in particular – has proven significant for the Gambling911.com website in the past. 

“There’s been some uptick in NBA betting traffic over the past few days,” noted Gambling911.com Operations Manager, Payton O’Brien.  “We believe this may not be a fluke.  Bookies will likely start capitalizing on the Jeremy Lin craze as will sports bettors, especially those in Southeast Asia.

Aside from the NBA Playoffs, wagering on the National Basketball League regular season games tends to be luke warm when compared to College Basketball and the NFL.   That could all change with the Lin-Sanity spark. 

Meanwhile, PR Specialist Ronn Torrosian of 5WPR.com advised Gambling911.com that real estate developer and uber-Russian attorney Edward Mermelstein has offered the Knick superstar a one bedroom apartment free of charge until Line finds his own place to sleep. 

Mermelstein is a court-side front row NY Knick seasonticket holder for many years.

"As a New Yorker, its very rare that someone like Jeremy Lin comes along to electrify this city, and this humble young man has excited all of NYC – and we love his energy.  He’s a hard working passionate young man – and as a NY Knick, and Harvard graduate I am sure its not long until he’ll have his own place to stay – but in the meantime I’d be honored to offer him an apartment for his use.  Every father tells his son if you go to Harvard, I will let you play ball – well Lin’s got it all and we have lots of respect for him.”

Edward A. Mermelstein (born c. 1967) is a Russian-American real estate attorney, broker and developer based in New York City and a partner at Rheem Bell & Mermelstein, LLP, for whom he is a partner. He was born in Ukraine, and emigrated to the US in 1976.
