Linsanity. Linsane in the membrane. Super Lintendo. Linception. Linderella.
It's only been a week, and New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has instantly become a household name. Jerseys for the former Harvard star are flying off the shelves in NYC, and Lin continues to deliver big wins for a team that sits in arguably the biggest sports market in the world.
Of course, with the instant success will also come instant comparisons. Not surprisingly, most of these comparisons have nothing to do with the Association.
While some have compared his success story to retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, the most common connection has been drawn between Lin and current Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow.
While there are some connections that can be made between these two athletes, this is absurd overall. There are a number of reasons why this is the case, but this abridged version will provide the five biggest reasons why Linsanity is in a class all its own.
