Jeremy Lin mania has taken over the New York Knicks franchise, as well as the rest of the city, even in light of the Giants' Superbowl victory Sunday. The entire country has seemed to jump on the bandwagon, with praise coming from all over the globe.
However, much like the city he is currently playing in, success and adoration from fans around the country can be very short-lived. The Harvard educated point guard took the NBA by storm over the past few games for the Knicks, logging serious minutes and producing amazingly efficient statistics in the process.
In his first career start for New York, a 99-88 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday, he provided a scoring punch by scoring 28 points on 10-17 shooting from the field. He also handed out eight assists, running the offense with aplomb.
Since then, his name has caught fire in the NBA world. In the Big Apple though, his 15 minutes of fame will soon flicker and fade, and he will once again be a professional basketball nomad, struggling to stay afloat on an NBA roster.
