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 »
I'm just out there having fun and playing a game, I can have bad games and you know they may not like me or they may boo me, but there's a lot more important things in life than just basketball because at the end of the day basketball is just a game.

I have no idea how this film can get such a low overall review score. It is by far one of the best films I've seen in the past two decades. What makes it even more exciting is that director Evan Leong and his team started filming way before all the Linsanity hype.
Jeremy Lin's story is not just about basketball, it illustrates determination, work ethic, and true resilience in realizing one's dreams. I would recommend this film to people of all ages. It's unfortunate that it is only playing at select theaters, however, I noticed that Amazon and some other sites have an online stream available for purchase - Even though I have seen the film at the Canadian Premiere screening, I am going to watch it again without a doubt. A great underdog story showcasing one of the greatest - yet most humble - players in the NBA. Keep on inspiring Jeremy Lin.
