My family is dealing with a strong case of Linsanity and we got together to discuss the causes. In this edited version of a longer conversation, author William Wong (my dad), student Brian Weller (my cousin) and me go over the epic rise of Jeremy Lin, the first Asian-American NBA superstar and overnight celebrity. We talk about the effect that his ascension has had on our community and on our basketball watching habits. While Jeremy Lin’s journey is still unfolding, there is no question that seeing a popular public figure with an Asian face has brought us together to root for the New York Knicks. #Linning.
