Last night (Feb. 23) Jimmy Fallon channeled Eddie Vedder and sang a tribute to New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin. Fallon reworked the lyrics to Pearl Jam‘s classic ‘Jeremy’ to reflect the ‘Linsanity’ that has taken over the NBA the past few weeks. Lin has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated the last two weeks in a row, and will take part in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge tonight as the NBA All Star weekend festivities kick off in Orlando, Florida.

Introduced as ‘Pearl Jam’ by ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ announcer Steve Higgins, Fallon was dressed head-to-toe like Vedder, singing lyrics like ‘At home shooting free throws and 3-point shots / Waiting for a job / Name not yet a pun / Carmelo injury / Came out of nowhere like an Asian Tebow.”, Batteries for Everything!

Fallon does it again, but Lin didn’t last night as the Knicks fell to the Miami Heat, with Lin going 1 for 13 shooting and having his worst game as a Knick.
