### Gary The Numbers Guy Explains The Success Of Jeremy Lin, Tim Tebow, LeBron James And More

For those interested in using numbers to analyze basketball, but are also interested in all things magic, this article is for you! For the rest of us, it's worth a good laugh. And I like how sometimes he splits up the birthdate's digits, or sometimes he keeps them together. Probably because it's the year of the dragon. According to my own special magic, Blake Griffin appears to be special. Because 10 is a very magical number, and he was born on 3/16/1989: 3 + 1 + 6 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 9 = 37 --> 3 + 7 = 10 3 + 16 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 9 = 46 --> 4 + 6 = 10 3 + 1 + 6 + 19 + 89 = 118 --> 1 + 1 + 8 = 10 3 + 16 + 19 + 89 = 127 --> 1 + 2 + 7 = 10 3 + 16 + 1 + 98 + 9 = 127 --> 1 + 2 + 7 = 10 3 + 1 + 6 + 1 + 98 + 9 = 118 --> 1 + 2 + 7 = 10 This is so stupid.
