Knicks' Jeremy Lin makes 2nd straight SI cover

NEW YORK (AP) - Covering Jeremy Lin has been easy for Sports Illustrated. The high-scoring Knicks newcomer is on the cover of SI for the second week in a row. He's the first New York-based team athlete to be given such treatment since the magazine started in 1954 - not
even Mickey Mantle, Joe Namath or Eli Manning made two straight.

Lin became a global star after getting a chance to start for the Knicks. The unheralded point guard from Harvard is playing with a flair that has revitalized the team and the fans.

Lin is the 12th athlete to appear on the SI cover at least two weeks in a row since 1990. Dirk Nowitzki did it during last season's NBA finals. Michael Jordan holds the SI cover record with three in row.
