The craze surrounding Asian NBA guard Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks. Starting from a humble beginning with not a chance given in sight, opportunity finally arose with injuries to multiple Knicks players and Lin took off SOARING.

It's safe to say that after his first few games starting that he has already cemented himself as one of the greatest of all time. He is truly a special player that could probably calculate you out of existence if he truly wanted to. Don't mess with Lin unless you want to DIE!
Came out of nowhere and shot out of a cannon is JEREMMMYYYYY LIIIIIIIIIIIIIN with another 30 point night with the game-winning 3 point shot! This is insanity NO IT'S LINSANITY!!
