The Bay Area's own NBA sensation Jeremy Lin has received another honor today - gracing the latest Time magazine cover, after leading the Knicks to seven straight victories.

And this Sunday, watching him play against the Dallas Mavericks will be Lin's Palo Alto high school coach Peter Diepenbrock. A friend of a friend of Lin's set Diepenbrock up courtside - near the likes of Hollywood director and Lin fan Spike Lee. Two of Lin's former teammates will also make the trip. Diepenbrock is getting Spike Lee a Lin high school jersey to wear to this Friday's game against New Orleans.
