This coming of age documentary chronicles the life of NBA All Star Steve Nash as he tries to navigate his way through the somewhat toils of professional sports while trying to leave a lasting legacy on and off the court.
In February 2012, an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went 'Linsane.' Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing. They gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first five NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a legitimate public frenzy in the process. Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn't offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard. Written by
This documentary began filming in 2010, two years before Jeremy Lin became a media sensation nicknamed "Linsanity" with the New York Knicks. Lin was a rookie for the Golden State Warriors at the start of filming. See more »
when I was going through all my insecurities, an uncertainty and lack of confidence, I was losing focus on God. I was focusing on my job and on what other people thought of me, and what the reporters were writing. Over time I was able to check myself and kind of get my focus back and I think God did something supernatural to me, something that I couldn't do on my own, something I may never be able to recreate so in that instance, I was learning to fight and constantly live and play ...

The title's a word, and it means it's an amazing film
"Linsanity" is an actual word, except no one has the actual definition. The most common terminology may be "the awesome feeling of Jeremy Lin winning the ultimate basketball game". My father and I loved watching basketball games together. This is the story of Jeremy Lin's love for this sport and the reality of getting into the NBA. Jeremy Lin is a man of faith and expresses it to us in this documentary. Director Evan Leong stated at the Sundance Q&A the film started out only as a web series and turned into something greater. The story starts with his game against the LA Lakers facing off the legendary LeBron James. Those of us who know Jeremy Lin will already predict the end result but even find a deeper understanding of this incredible player. Leong did a fantastic job bringing this player to life. My only complaint would be the large amount of archival footage and him playing basketball and NBA games. We see that on TV all the time when there needed to be more of knowing him as a character. Great job from the entire team and I hope you get this film for the world to see.
