While Jeremy Lin has become an NBA sensation, Knicks reject Stephon Marbury has been tearing it up on the other side of the world, dominating the Chinese league and developing his own cult following. "Linsanity" is competing with "Marbury madness" in China after the Brooklyn native led the Beijing Ducks to the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championship semi-finals in style. On Sunday, Beijing beat Zhejiang 105-91 to win the best-of-five quarter-final 3-0, propelled by a 14-point third quarter from Marbury including a thunderous dunk, drives to the rim and a pair of laser-guided three-pointers. For some, the heroics have even eclipsed those of Lin, a fellow point guard who has captivated audiences in China and his parents' homeland Taiwan with his fairytale emergence from bit-player to superstar at the Knicks. "I've been watching what [Jeremy] Lin Shuhao is doing in the NBA, but Marbury is my hero," one supporter, Meng Zhaoping, told A...

Lin makes Knicks a story, but are they contender?

Apart from all the Jeremy Lin headlines, the New York Knicks think they are a story, too. While almost all the attention this month belonged to their point guard, the Knicks got Baron Davis back from injury, signed JR Smith and discovered Steve Novak, who had been sitting right next to Lin at the end of their bench.

ESPN Headline Writing School: Hines Ward + Asian = Happy Endings

ESPN caught hell when they used the headline “***** in the Armor” under a photo a New York Knicks point guard and Asian American Jeremy Lin a couple weeks ago. When taken literally, we all got the headline — the Knicks had lost and Lin probably committed like 75 turnovers. However, everyone knows ***** is a derogatory term used for Asians, so hey, not real funny. The guy who...

Davis can help Knicks as Lin's backup

There was a time last month when Baron Davis must have felt a lot like Wally Pipp. Davis signed a one-year contract with the New York Knicks in December, and the hope was that the two-time All-Star, who was recovering from back surgery, would eventually emerge as the Knicks' next great point guard -- or at least a more viable option than dead weights Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas...
