Storyline

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 Sundance

Linsanity - an independent journey
29 July 2014 | by annuskavdpolSee all my reviews

Jeremy Lin is Linsanity. He seemed to be this silent hero in America. His laid back character and nothingness seemed to contribute to our day and age. Within the film shots of this story, there seemed to be a story within a story. Was this movie about Jeremy Lin or was it about basketball or the American Dream or was this whole story about God? Was Jeremy Lin mentally ill or selfish? Was his euphoric state of zoning while he was winning on the basketball court nothing more than a hallucination in the waking sense and was he not only thinking about himself versus the whole team when he prayed to God and let God take over in what Jeremy Lin mentioned as an out of body experience. Is not God to help all team members and opponents and do we not live a life where selflessness versus selfishness is considered to be more holy? Jeremy Lin seemed to lose himself in a religious trance on the basketball court however was the game about Jeremy as an individual or as player in Gods Master Plan? If Jeremy Lin perceives himself merely a player in God's Master Plan for him, does that mean he is merely a puppet and God pulling the strings? Would it not be more human to combine God with self so that man has a say in his own unique narrative? An independent journey laced with divinity.
