It’s Hard Not To Get Caught Up in Linsanity

As a lifetime New York Knicks fan, sure the last week has been great. Earlier this month, the Knicks were going nowhere and Mike D’Antoni’s job status as head coach was murky at best. Six wins later, the entire sports world is talking about point guard Jeremy Lin. The first American-Taiwanese player in NBA history has turned the league upside down. Lin’s stellar play has revitalized New York’s season and he continues to have a flair for the dramatic. Tonight’s game-winning three pointer with just 0.5 seconds left capped a remarkable comeback win for the Knicks against the Toronto Raptors. Lin has 136 points through his first 5 starts, the most of any player who began his career after the league merger in 1976.

How far can this Lindarella story go? The sky’s the limit. He’s already a merchandise sensation and is the NBA’s top overall seller over the last week. Every Knicks fan wants a Jeremy Lin jersey or t-shirt. My biggest question will be whether Lin can continue to play like this over the next 40 games? Physically, he has never had to play a grueling NBA schedule before, and the lockout has made this grind even tougher. If Lind can continue to lead New York and adapt to superstars Amary Stoudamire and Carmelo Anthony, then the Knicks might have found the missing piece to their puzzle.
