The Linsanity is still going strong!! Hits the game winner!! 27pts, 11ast against the Raptors...though he needs to work on those turnovers...had 8 of them.

Don't nobody give a SHET about turnovers when you score 27 and hit the game winning three

Lin is now tebow. Hype machine will be non stop until a early playoff exit. Biggest diff is Lin is better at his sport than tebow is at his

Lin is not Tebow to me, he is Victor Cruz. Unless you are comparing the media coverage

Comparison is about hype, a improbable run of winning in their starting debuts for the season, and people will stupidly focus on Lins race like they did tebows religious beliefs.

But like I said, I agree that Lin appears to be a good player. I still think tebow is utter garbage as a QB

Exactly, I don't care nothing about his race, just a good story

That's an understatement. I hate all the Tebow comparisons. Lin has been playing at an all-NBA level.

I don't think Tebow's religious beliefs are the main reason for all the media coverage in-regards to Tebow. The majority of it is based off of the thinking that a QB with his skill set, who was arguably the greatest college QB of all time, can not win in the NFL. This is basically the same thing that has given into Linsanity except it is the thinking that Asian players can't be skilled basketball players unless they are 7 feet tall.

That's a good comparison. Or maybe Miles Austin from a few years back. Lets see if he can become a, dare I say it, Tom Brady?

I'm surprised Lin had the courage to go for the game winning shot. Especially with such little experience in this area. Most players (Lebron) would be nervous in this type of situation with the game on the line. That's the type of fire that stars like Kobe possess.
