Linsanity

Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks looked to the end of the bench and gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin one last chance before cutting him from their team. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first give NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a global frenzy in the process. Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. LINSANITY documents Jeremy Lin's amazing journey to the NBA from an undersized California kid - the child of immigrants - who loved to shoot hoops and refused to give up on his dream. But it also tells the story of a young man's faith in God that sustains and guides him as he faces obstacles, opposition and setbacks.
