NBA Teams Make Sure They are Ready to Play and Win Against Linsanity
Bill Reiter breaks down Linsanity on FOX Sports
Lin is, if not an elite player, at least a sure NBA starter and sometimes star. I believe he is more than a flash in the pan. He has shown his worth and his promise since bursting onto the scene last month, and to think he will fade as abruptly as he rose is absurd.
But, to be sure, he has also shown an at-times unsettling ability to bring out the wrath of star players for which he had no answer. And against a star-studded team like the Heat on Feb. 23, Lin gave a basketball clinic on how to be swallowed whole.
This is the confounding part of Linsanity and a fascinating factor surrounding uesday night’s Knicks-Mavericks game. Jeremy Lin is both a budding star and an unlikely agent of change bringing out the most ferocious aspects of the teams he’s facing.

Lin settles into a groove with solid performance against the Cavaliers in New York
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]o measure just how far the Knicks have come, how much has changed in a short period, one could count the number of bodies used Wednesday night or the standing ovations they enjoyed or the giddy chants that occasionally echoed across Madison Square Garden.
Lin rebounded with a 19-point, 13-assist effort and played 33 minutes. Baron Davis had his best game since joining the rotation with 8 assists and 4 points in 14 minutes, allowing Lin a needed breather in the second half.

David Stern gives Lin a lot of credit for lighting a fire under the NBA
Now everyone seems to be enjoying the season and looking forward to the All-Star game this weekend…
Living Large Linsanity. The is the type of mojo that sticks around for the NBA All-Star Game. Lin’s popularity is so out of this world that the NBA made a late roster switch to ensure his participation in the Rising Stars Challenge on All-Star Saturday, a game that includes the NBA’s best rookies and sophomores. Lin is in such high demand that all of the game’s other participants will meet with the media following a team practice on Friday while Lin will have his own, separate press conference later in the night. This is Jeremy’s world, folks. We’re all just living in it. Even David Stern and the rest of the league’s All-Stars, at least for the moment.
