Jeremy Lin Pun-O-Rama: 59 LINcredible Ways To Describe LINsanity

Editor’s note: This morning, our very Steve Kubitza issued a chalLINge to anyone to come up with as many fun new Jeremy Lin puns as they could think of. Naturally, Jon Washburn accepted the challenge, creating what you see below.

Let’s just be honest…I absolutely LOVE Jeremy Lin, and I think he can succeed in the NBA…but one of the biggest reasons he has become such an overnight hit is because of his name – maybe the greatest name in the history of professional sports.

You know the story.  The Knicks were struggLIN.  Some of their players were aiLIN.  Their coach was on the hotseat and backpedaLIN from every hard question.

Insert Jeremy Lin.

All of the sudden, this ballhandLIN, dazzLIN, dribbLIN master took control of the game, and the rest – as they say – is history.

There’s just no stopping it now. Even when he plays poorly, it’s easy to find a Silver LINing.  I don’t remember a story this LINspirational.  Hop into your LINousine and let’s take a ride down the LINovative Expressway.

LINcredible Places For Jeremy to Not only Play, but Keep On LINning

On Friday, the Knicks will most definitely beat the hapless New OrLINS Hornets.  You already saw him beat the LINnesota Timberwolves as well.  Last night, he turned up the LINtensity when his team needed it the most.  But where else could Lin have success?

The fans would certLINly love Jeremy in LINdiana where basketball is king.

Next, he could drive North and visit the Detroit PistLINS.

Of course, we couldn’t have him leave the Midwest without a quick trip to CleveLIN where he could match up against fellow youngster Kyrie Irving.

Do you think anyone would love him down South in AtLINta?  What about OrLINdo against the Magic?

Even if the Southerners turned on him, I’m sure Jeremy would find lots of love out West, even  though VaLINtine’s Day is over.

I hear the fans in PortLINd are crazy.

Of course he would be right at home in LIN City where he could throw lobs to Blake GriffLIN like he already does with his buddy TysLIN Chandler.

Other Sports and Teams where Lin would Certainly be ExcelLINt

Do you think he could be a success out on the gridiron?

I hear the Detroit LINs want to make him their slot receiver next to CalvLIN Johnson.

Of course, Cam Newton would love to throw to him in CaroLINa.

Maybe the Washington RedskLINS could let him play QB…they certainly need one.

And of course, LeBron would LOVE to be playing in the same town as the kid.  Jeremy would DOMINATE on the Miami DolphLINs.

Now that I think about it, his hustLIN style of play would definitely be suited for the ice.

Of course he would be the next Bobby Orr on the Boston BruLINs.

And since he loves Tim Tebow so much, I’m sure the Denver fans would be THRILLED to have him playing for their Colorado AvaLINche.

Nah, let’s just keep him in New York.  The New York IsLINders would really make him their own.

Of course, we would be remiss of we didn’t “Take Lin out to the Ballgame.”  Couldn’t some baseball teams use him as well?

Personally, I think he would make a great secondbaseLIN.

I KNOW that the CleveLIN LINdians could use a player to turn double plays with the breathtaking Asdrubal Cabrera.

And even though the LINcinnati Reds already have Brandon Phillips, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind some depth in their LINfield.

If he didn’t want to be a backup though, he could always play for the MarLINs.  They are STILL looking for someone to fill the whole that Dan Uggla left them, and they have been throwing out milLINs of dollars this offseason anyway!

Best Nicknames for the Kid So Far

Alright, let’s just stop the nonsense.  Let’s give him a nickname once and for all.

I’m definitely partial to Super LINtendo, but that might be a LITTLE too close some racial stereotypes.  No matter.  Our LINfatuation with Jeremy Lin doesn’t have to stop there.

Whenever he overpowers other point guards, LIN Diesel comes to mind.

Really, the entire story reminds me of LINderella.

Literature aficionados that enjoy Edgar AlLIN Poe might refer to him as the RavLin.  (Ok…I’ll stay away from LINterature forevermore…)

What about the LINcredible Hulk?

Maybe he could go as Mr. LINcredible.

Some fans in New York have already labeled him Emperor LIN.

We could call him WolverLINe and watch him lead his X-LIN every night.

Or we could keep it simple and call him SuperLIN.

OK…I’m starting to get out of hand.  I’ll stop finagLIN the crazy names.

What can you come up with?



About Jon Washburn

Jon Washburn grew up in Indianapolis, IN and as such, is a diehard Pacers, Colts, and Cubs fans. When it comes to college, he cheers for Notre Dame football fan and Purdue basketball. Yes, this sounds shady, but since he grew up without cable, he learned to love Notre Dame - the only team on TV. Glenn "The Big Dog" Robinson was at Purdue when Jon was in his formative years, so he latched onto them as well. Did that make him a fair-weather fan at the time? Sure. Give him a break...he was 8...and he has stayed with those teams ever since. Currently, he lives in Charleston, SC with his wife who grew up in Cleveland. Although he is no longer physically in the Midwest, his heart will always be there. Jon goes by the name "Twitch" because he has Tourette's Syndrome. Hit him up on his twitter @jwtwitch.
