Lin-sanity?

7 replies • Last post

I am not a big basketball fan, but even I can't escape the story of Jeremy Lin. For those who are not in the know, Jeremy Lin is from California, went to Harvard (which is an excellent school, but not known for sports), and did not get drafted by the NBA.

A team signed him but he was cut twice this year and looked like he would never get a chance to play in the NBA. Then the New York Knicks signed him and one of their players went down. Lin got to play and has been phenomenal. He is averaging a ton of points and assists.

Over here in the States this has been THE sports story since the Super Bowl ended. I myself don't like basketball, but am intrigued by the story.

What do you guys think? Are you hearing about this in other parts of the world?

Yeah it was actually in the paper here and I read the story. But I must have missed the explanation you just gave because it seemed the writer was just going on about all this Lin-sanity stuff and I didn't have a clue as to why. Now I get it...

Basketball is by far my favorite sport. Great story!

woot..... I'm so proud of him.. just like Yao Ming! The Asian people can't get enough of him. He is on top of his game right now. Big endorsement means earning big bucks!

Y'all take care.. =^. .^=

Since reading this thread, I have noticed the "Linsanity." lol All over the magazines at the store and stories on the internet. Now all those headlines catch my eye.

Hope, its funny that you caught it now that it seems to be winding down. I think people are starting to realize that he is going to be an average player who just had a streak of good luck.

But it was good to read a positive story in the news, other than all the bad stuff circulating around.

If you want to read a positive story (not sports related) go to the General Chat forum and look in my thread that says, "This is worth six minutes of your time." Now THAT is a positive story! Smile
