Jeremy Lin takes the sports world by storm scoring 38 points, as his New York Knicks defeated Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers, 92-85, at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Friday (February 10).
The 23-year-old Harvard educated NBA basketball player has exploded on social media (including tons of puns)- trending on Twitter and showing up all over Facebook. LINsanity has been coined, as well as Lin-ning and All we do is Lin, Lin, Lin! Celebs came out for the game including Ben Stiller, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Spike Lee and Justin Tuck of the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. Jeremy has also drawn comparisons to Tim Tebow – not only for their newfound success, but their faith as well. Looks like Jeremy has found fans already in Rainn Wilson, Shane West, Sherri Shepherd and Spike Lee!
Jeremy recently did a video (while in between NBA teams) with Youtube star Ryan Higa (aka nigahiga), called “How to Get into Harvard”! Looks like studying actually pays off!
