It's Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers are visiting the New York Knicks and Linsanity is in full effect. The swirl of sudden recognition and praise for instant-superstar Jeremy Lin continues through the first half of play, as Lin is mopping the court with everyone and leading scoring with 18 points. Hit the other side of the jump to see one of his standout plays from the second quarter
Lin grabbed a rebound, ran the length of the court, spun inside the paint past Derek Fisher and laid it in. The technique is one thing, but the exuberance after the timeout really demonstrates what makes the kid so darn likable. Here's hoping that he keeps putting together highlight reels for years to come.
