Jimmy Fallon joined the “Linsanity” craze last night in his show by spoofing Pearl Jam’s legendary hit song “Jeremy”…with a Jeremy Lin twist.
Earlier tonight, in the debut episode of Shades of Gray, Robert Littal of Black Sports Online and I talked about the controversial Pro Football Weekly cover, coaches and players openly discussing religion, and of course Linsanity, which is getting a stern tonight in Miami against the Heat.
Earlier this week, MSF writers Jon Washburn and Keith Mullett wrote articles featuring differing opinions on Jeremy Lin’s future in the NBA.
- Jon outlined 3 reasons Jeremy Lin could be here to stay as a viable NBA point guard.
- Keith rebutted with 3 reasons he thinks “Linsanity” can’t continue at this level.
Last night, they matched wits via podcast to discuss and debate what the future holds for Lin.
The legend of Jeremy Lin became even greater last night. With .5 seconds left in the game against the Raptors, Lin’s shot swished through the basket to break the tie and put the Knicks up 90-87. (See video here.)
As a fan of basketball, all I can say is that this guy is truly unbelievable.
The hottest name in sports right now is Jeremy Lin, and for the most part all of the hype has been warranted.
Lin has revitalized basketball in New York, leading the Knicks to five straight wins after the team struggled to start the season 8-15. Particularly disappointing was the team’s guard play over those first 23 games, but Lin has stabilized the backcourt, racking up averages of 26.8 points and 8 assists per game.
As Jon Washburn wrote, there are very valid reasons to believe Lin can keep this incredible train rolling.
I think, however, that are some very valid reasons Jeremy Lin will not continue his dominance over the rest of the league from the point guard position.
