Jeremy Lin: New Documentary Film Would Prove Linsanity Is Far from Over
Jeremy Lin may not be stepping on a basketball court any time soon, but he could be making an appearance at a movie theater near you.
According to Steven Zeitchik of the Los Angeles Times, there are filmmakers shopping around a documentary on Lin and his journey to the top of the insane sports media landscape.
According to a person familiar with the pitch who was not authorized to talk about it publicly, the movie (no firm title yet, so let your pun-riddled imagination run wild) looks both at Lin's unlikely run in the NBA as well at his humble background.
While the fervor surrounding Linsanity has cooled considerably since the start of March, this is the latest and greatest sign that Lin is not going away.
It is an interesting idea, especially because of his unique background and journey to the NBA. The news does come at an interesting time, with Lin's stock dropping faster than, well, the actual stock market.

Still, Lin is not always being evaluated on his performance on the court. That's where we should be looking, but some players seem to catch a break because they have a personality or story that people gravitate towards.
Just because Lin is not throwing up shots and turning the ball over on a basketball court anymore does not mean we are completely away from Linsanity.
If the documentary does see the light of day, it will be a good story for him and plenty of fans will want to see it. But they might have to get it moving quickly, because the amount of money they could make from this drops with each passing day.
