  5. 5. Jeremy Lin, Knicks Star, Shouldnt Be Too Quick To Plug ProductThe Knicks have won five straight since Lin became a fixture. The beststrategy Lin and his personal team can employ is to let his breakout and theteams winning become long-term, while avoiding the temptation to over-groom his image. "Weve had clients where you just let them be them," saidRonn Torossian, whose 5WPR agency has represented ex-Knicks AllanHouston and Jalen Rose, and former boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. "I dontthink you need to do a ton with Lin. Hes authentic. Hes clearly hard working.―Lin has other factors going for him that will attract advertisers. He isntfreakishly tall (6-foot-3-inches) or imposing. "Hes relatable," Ronn Torossiansaid. "He looks like he would be playing pickup basketball anywhere.‖"If this guy keeps going, forget it," Ronn Torossian said. "Hes a marketersdream. Hes Tiger Woods pre-scandal -- and to top it all off hes playing in thebiggest media market in the world." 5
  6. 6. NBAs Linsanity offers marketing promiseJeremy Lin, the 23-year-old point guard of Taiwanese descent who hascome out of nowhere to guide the New York Knicks to seven straightwins, has left many wondering if he can also help his team gain groundamong Asian consumers."Jeremy Lin is a marketing dream come true," said RonnTorossian, chief executive of New York-based 5W Public Relations. "Ifsomebody had a checklist of what a brand should be, Jeremy Lin hitsevery one.―It has been only 10 days since the Harvard graduate was called off thebench, immediately becoming the Knicks unlikely savior. In his firstgame, he scored 25 points to help his team beat the New JerseyNets, and last Friday, his 38 points outscored Kobe Bryant of the LosAngeles Lakers for another Knicks win.New York media have dubbed the phenomenon "Linsanity," and thepreviously unknown economics major has exploded on socialmedia, reaching more than 300,000 followers on Twitter. 6
  7. 7. Linsanity: Suddenly, Everyone Wants a Piece of Jeremy Lin―For me, Jeremy Lin is the American dream, a marketer’s dream,‖ said RonnTorossian, a sports marketing expert and president and CEO of 5W Public Relations.Ronn Torossian said unabashedly that Lin could become as big an athletic sensationas Michael Jordan or David Beckham, simply because he plays in New York, themedia capital. Lin is receiving more attention than the New York Giants got afterwinning the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.Besides his ethnicity and his college background — Harvard is not a pipeline tothe National Basketball Association — Lin is appealing because he stands 6 feet, 3inches, no colossus, and is a devout Christian who wants to be a minister when he isdone playing ball. Fans wave signs at Knicks games with ―Linderella‖ and ―Marry me,Jeremy.‖How many professional athletes talk about sleeping on their brother’s couch? RonnTorossian said. 7
