All the craze about Jeremy Lin is Lin-sane! A Chinese American born, well spoken Harvard graduate who has been AMAZABALLS so far playing for the NY Knicks, scoring over 80 points in his first 3 games, something no other player has done in the NBA before. His story is almost movie like, its the perfect underdog story. After not receiving any athletic scholarship offers, Lin attended Harvard making the All-Ivy League First Team twice. Lin wasn't drafted in the 2010 NBA draft but went on to sign a contract with the Golden State Warriors, he later got waived and sent to the D-league a few times, before having the opportunity to rise and help out the Knicks when Carmelo Anthony got injured.
Jeremy Lin is off to a great start and being an evangelical Christian has been compared to Tim Tebow. He's winning and giving fans a show every night, Lin's marketability has shot thru the roof, jersey's are selling out, pizzarias in Chinatown are giving away free slices after every win...this guy is the most talked about asian since Bruce Lee! Only time will tell if all the Linsanity is insanity, but I have a feeling this guy is the real deal. The Knicks have needed a point guard for some time now, he's perfect for the pick n roll combo with Amare and he scored 38 points against the Lakers. This is his first year so of course he needs time to learn, grow, adjust to each team and work on his ball handling, but you can't deny this guy has skill. Next year the Knicks will have to pay to keep him because right now he's a supersized player on a happy meal sized contract.
