With the Knicks now on a seven game winning streak, fans are dying to know anything and everything about the overnight sensation that is Jeremy Lin. The Knicks point guard, who now has close to 400,000 Twitter followers, recently opened up to Fuse about his pregame warmup and the music that helps him calm his nerves.

An artist you gotta check out is Lecrae, the Harvard grad told Fuse. He's a Christian rapper who raps a lot about the gospel and a lot about Christian music.

Lin, number 17, shined last night in the Knicks' defeat over the Sacramento Kings, but not for his well-known ability to shoot the ball. The team player racked up a career high 13 assists in the 26 minutes that he played, as he checked out late in the third quarter.

But back to his music.

Hillsong plays a lot of Christian contemporary music, said Lin. I listen to them just to remind myself why I'm playing the game . . . I try not to get too hyped up because I might burn myself out before I get into the game.

In his first five starts as a New York Knick, Jeremy Lin scored 136 points, the most by any NBA Player since the NBA merged with the ABA in 1976.
