Jeremy Lin: The ‘Linsanity’ Continues v Lakers and Kobe

Yesterday we told you the story of Knicks point guard and overnight sensation Jeremy Lin.

Then promptly, last night, Lin went for a career high 38 points and 7 assists in a victory over the visiting Lakers.

Lin scored 89 points in his first three starts. According to Elias, that’s the most points by any player in his first three starts since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976.

If you missed last night’s game, here (via the CBS Eye on Basketball blog) is a video of all of Lin’s field goals:

 

Reader Sam Angean sent me a link to an article by Timothy Dalrymple, “Jeremy Lin and the Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations.” Dalrymple, a philosopher and former top-ranked NCAA gymnast, looks at the stereotypes that plague Asian-American athletes and particularly Lin. It’s worth a read if you have time today.

Finally, here’s one Knicks fan’s response to Linsanity (and to Carmelo Anthony’s recent struggles):
