year after year, all sports fans loathe the month of February as
- Football is over.
- The weather is usually bad.
- NCAA is weeks away.
- Baseball hasn't started.
- and the NBA season is uninspiring as the Knicks were irrelevant
He has been affectionately called Linsanity , Super Lintendo , Ninga , LinFinity, , Linderalla , The Golden Child
and many more which he's earned with his stellar play. My favorite is Cinderella Man
and he capped his magical run tonight with the winning 3 pointer at the buzzer. The Knicks are now a spotless 6-0 since he has been inserted into the lineup. I've watched his last 3 Knick games in a row before that I hadn't watched 3 Knick games in a row in almost twelve years. I'm on the band wagon.
How can you not be?
He is for real.
I'm a believer.
Lin doesn't have to play softball to make my blog. He proves that it is "much more than just a game". He went to Harvard (rare in pro sports), is Asian (a rarity in the NBA) , was undrafted, cut, benched, cut again, benched, almost cut, then let his talent shine through.
