Montgomery is feeling the ripple effect of Lin's rise more than anyone, never mind that he's nowhere near the action in New York. The San Antonio-based agent, who has been in the business for 11 years, runs what he calls "a boutique shop" of an outfit, monitoring his four clients from his Texas office, his sudden home away from home. Montgomery hasn't had a full night's sleep for "about five days now," he said, with interviews requests for Lin pouring in from all over the world and business opportunities booming. David Letterman has reached out, Montgomery said, as has Diane Sawyer and "90 percent of the major media personalities" (no Jay Leno yet, however). Meanwhile, Lin is in the second year of a three-year shoe contract with Nike, and Montgomery admitted that a renegotiation of terms could be in order if Lin keeps playing like this. Montgomery is heading to New York this week, where he'll sit down with Lin to make a few calculated decisions about where to spend his time in an attempt to maximize this newfound fame while remaining focused on the game.
