    Kid is just awesome...awesome.

    How do they miss talent like that?

    If he can QB a team of no names and take down Kobe, I'd love to see him setting up Anthony and Stoudemire.

    LOL, I know but this story is bigger than b-ball right now. Where has anyone, in any sport, come from the last man on the bench to become the best player in the league over a 4 game stretch?............LINsane!

    I'm a fan and I don't like basketball (NBA) and the Knicks

    Yes, but even Tom Brady was the backup. LIN was the 15th man with a ten day contract who outplayed KOBE BRYANT tonight! Best player in the NBA over the past 4 games!.........Just LINsane!

    Lol...have to love the story, (especially considering only Hockey happening now )

    My fear (which I posted about in the "Appropriate forum") is that they will immediately get rid of him as he doesnt fit the Dolan mold.

    Fun stuff.

    Not to mention he was about to be waived before he tore up the Nets, I am still a little cautious but its been a lot of fun watching him play and bring life back to the Knicks. The arena tonight was electric due to this kid.

    Great point.

    He's no fluke either, just my opinion. All his moves, he can casually hit 3's when he wants, he sees the entire floor (that 1 play where he collapsed the whole D driving and from under the basket whipped a pass all the way outside the arc, hitting the open man).

    Different sport, but I just get the exact same feeling seeing Lin, just like after watching Tom Brady lead his very first drives in the NFL...As a life-long Jet fan my feeling was...and very quickly and sadly...."Aw sh*t"....you just knew the guy had it.

    Looks like we have lots of excitement until the Draft in April...good stuff.

    Lin The Zone

    Lin has at least 20 points, 5 assists and has shot over 50 percent in each of his last 4 games. The only other player to have a streak that long this season is LeBron James, who has done it 3 times.

    Sorta makes you wonder who else might be out there. This story is a major major sports story in NY and we have nothing much else going on for a bit. If it carries on I would love to have the Chinese rights to The "Lin" shirt. All over Asia actually.

    For how many games do we have to see it before we can rely on it moving forward? The way Melo and Amare integrate back into this team will be a very interesting watch.

    I sincerely hope that Isaiah is not mentally packaging him up in a deal right now.

    For any Lin doubters...tough to be

    Not my post...but says it all.

    Lin outplays Deron Williams. An all star, an all nba player, part of team usa...hater says it's the Nets.

    Lin outplays Devin Harris and the Jazz which at the time was in the middle of the pack in the playoffs. Haters says it's 2 just two games.

    Lin outplays John Wall. Breaks his ankle with a killer cross over...Wal the number 1 draft class in Lin's year. All rookie 1st team. Haters says it's just 3 games and Wash stinks

    Lin outplays Kobe. 5th all time in scoring. Leading the league in scoring. Lakers are a playoff team.

    Now what haters

    I said it wasn't my post, that's why it's italicized, it just detailed the kids games and who he went up against...not angry...glad to be able to see an incredible NY sports story unfolding.
