The Lin-sanity Continues…
It took New York and the rest of the country by storm. The first time I hear about this, I though that the (Sports) media was just looking for a new story to tell the world (NFL Season is over). Lets face it, the story is a fairy tale story in the NBA. A quiet and reserved kid that went to Harvard and did not even get a scholarship to play basketball. Yet, the New York Knicks are now on the verge of winning their 8 straight game. with the help of the mighty Lin.
