Linsanity continues regardless of what Floyd Mayweather says. Isn’t this eerily similar to Tebowmania? I think so. Last night Jeremy Lin hit a last second 3-pointer to give the New York Knicks the W over the Raptors, in Toronto. It was the Knicks sixth straight win. Check out the broadcast video.

Well for the first time since opening the season at 2-0 the New Orleans Hornets have come out victorious in their past two games to match that win streak. Monday night they stormed to a huge lead then were able to hold off the Utah Jazz late for an 86-80 win. They followed that with a close 92-89 thriller over the Milwaukee Bucks to improve to a mere 6-23 on the season.
The Yankees reliever, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery at the team's minor-league complex in Tampa, knows what Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin is going through.
