PLAYERS: Jeremy Lin
TEAMS: New York Knicks
2012 has been the year of the Lin in the NBA. Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has taken the basketball world by storm. Perhaps the oddest aspect of Lin's recent explosions has been the accompanying puns and signs that follow him.

Sportscaster and fans everywhere have taken it upon themselves to try to create a never-before-heard pun, but the well is quickly running dry. Coming to an NBA arena with a Jeremy Lin has become the thing to do - even when you're rooting for the opposing team. Some have been Lin-credible and others have been not-so-Lincredible. See, I'm telling you, it's everywhere.
