"Linsanity" was a perfect storm in the perfect market. You had a player in Jeremy Lin about to be cut but with one really good skill — he could attack off the pick-and-roll going right (and he was good in transition). He gets thrown on the court out of desperation by a struggling Knicks team running Mike D'Antoni's pick-and-roll heavy offense.
Trailer for new "Linsanity" movie looks pretty good
Really? This will go down in time as a story with a lot of liberties ala "Rudy".
