Apparently, Charlotte Hornets security guards never got caught up in Linsanity a few years back.

Jeremy Lin signed with Charlotte as a free agent back in July. It appears as though he had yet to go to the Hornets' home arena, Time Warner Cable Arena, until recently. And once he did finally make a trip, the 6'3", 200-pound guard had to convince security that he was a player.

Lin has played five seasons in the NBA, and yet he can still go unrecognized. That's pretty hard to believe considering Linsanity swept the nation back in 2012.
