The Winner Had a Linspirational Moment!
Alex Medina, the winner of the New York Times Linsanity design contest, wasn’t always a Knicks fan. Although he grew up in Washington Heights, Medina spent his childhood rooting for the Chicago Bulls and more recently jumped ship for the Miami Heat. It was all about Jordan, then all about LeBron. And now, it’s all about Lin.
Medina spent about as long creating his winning Lin design as it seems to take for a basketball superstar to steal his team allegiance. “I was just in my living room, watching Lin’s third game, and I was like, Man, I want a Jeremy Lin shirt. I was looking at designs online, and then I thought I’d just make one for myself.” What he created, in about 15 minutes, was the Ballin’ design that brought in 2,733 votes in six days.
