    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is for real! NY Knicks might have found a gem!

    This Lin thing should've been obvious. No one loves MSG as much as the Asians.

    Very cool story, but I wonder how much attention he would be getting if he played for Golden St., Portland, New Orleans, etc.

    You can't compared the amount of over-coverage of Rubio. He was an internationally known basketball commodity. The amount of people who knew Jeremy Lin about 10 days ago was significantly smaller. Lin is benefiting from playing in the NY media market. Hope he can use it to his advantage.

    I've watched the last 2 Knicks games at a bar up by my apt in Harlem. I've also watched around 10 other ones there. The last 2 have been completely insane, everyone is cheering everyone is into the game. Before that it was doom and gloom. The guy has really energized the fan base, it's awesome!

    It's pretty refreshing to have a player with Lin's basketball background break through. The NBA has really taken a dive into the prima donna pool, which can wear thin on some casual fans.

    I'm sure you meant to say "Linsane"!

    The story is pretty amazing. The Knicks were stumbling along, their 2 superstars are shelved, Stoudamire due to the tragic death of his brother, and Anthony due to injury, and Lin energizes the team.

    I usually don't watch the Knicks but have happened to stumble across the games as this story has unfolded. It appears that everybody around him is playing better....role players stepping up and making serious contributions, and Tyson Chandler looking like he really wants to play ball.

    Not to mention, they're on a winning streak while "undermanned"!

    The NBA regular season is usually unwatchable. These games have been really appealing.

    I hate the NBA but saw the highlights at the gym of Lin's past week. Good for him and it has to be good for the NBA because as was stated here earlier, Lin is easy to root for unlike most of the prima-donnas that play in the league.

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.
