Let’s take a look back at the some of highlights of “Linsanity”
“Just Lin, baby” read the bold headline in the New York Daily News.
Point guard Jeremy Lin is the talk of New York, the nation … and the world after he validated his four-game rise from anonymity to stardom with a career-high 38 points in leading the New York Knicks past the visiting Los Angeles Lakers 92-85 on Friday night.
Lin has carried the Knicks to a season-tying four-game winning streak, which they can extend tonight when they play at the Minnesota Timberwolves.
U.S. media outlets are not alone in the coverage of the undrafted point guard from Harvard — the NBA’s first American-born Chinese or Taiwanese player — who has emerged from the end of the bench to become a world-wide phenomenon in a week. Just since Thursday his Twitter followers have risen by 50,000 to a total of more more 155,000.
The Asian media are so taken with Lin, crowding him at shootarounds and post-game, that they are concerned for his well-being.
Suffice to say, this young man’s life has changed in just a matter of days.
