Here’s just a few good reads on the Knicks and Linsanity from the past week:
- In Lin, Knicks Find a Textbook Point Guard- New York Times
Fantastic interactive graphic highlighting Lin’s use of Dribble Penetration, The Ball Screen and Isolation plays.
- Leave Jeremy Lin Alone- Grantland
Charles P. Pierce is a writer Esquire , in this piece for ESPN he frets over the effects of Linsanity on the psyche of the 23-year sudden super-star and how the age of instant everything has created a lightning quick ascendancy to super-stardom which has taken the gleam off the charm of phenomena.
Jeremy Lin was mentioned almost once per minute on the 11 a.m est edition of SportsCenter this week. That is just absurd.
Maybe the best SNL skit of the last 5 years, seriously.
- From Couch to Clutch- Sports Illustrated
A quick read chronicling Lin’s meteoric first week as an NBA starter.
