When I watched Lin pull up over Jose Calderon and bury that 3-pointer, I didn't instantly think of his Taiwanese heritage or his ecstatic fan base of all races and creeds. I thought: This is what Derrick Rose does; this is what Larry Bird used to do; this is what Jeremy Lin is now doing.

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.

Here is a great video of Jeremy Lin's game winning 3 pointer against the Toronto Raptors last night from a fan's perspective inside the Rogers Centre.

Jeremy Lin sank the game-winning three tonight to beat the Toronto Raptors, and he was rewarded by Landry Fields when he got lintimate with a big kiss. I guess NBA players can get lonely when they’re on the road, especially on Valentine’s Day.
Jeremy Lin had the crowd on its feet, Jose Calderon on his heels and the game in his hands. All that remained was the shot. Hours earlier, Lin had called his fairy tale journey "a miracle from God" and the biggest shot of his NBA career seem to fall from heaven.
