"Linsanity" chronicles the surprising rise of basketball player Jeremy Lin. in February 2012; an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went "Linsane." Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn't offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard. Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing--they gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself.

Disappointing

This movie is a documentary. It is not a story, unless a lengthy list of facts and accomplishments constitutes a story. While the main character is an inspiring young man and has overcome all kinds of obstacles to become a phenomenal success--and yet remained a humble, likeable human being, I wouldn't care to watch it again. I was expecting something more, I guess. To a basketball buff, this might be engaging but to the novice, it is not terribly engaging.

He spends time in the Developmental League and then is released two times. He ends up in NYC where he eventually gets a chance to perform and does the most with his chance. Insightful.

Interesting story of an unusual NBA Player

Interesting story as I am always anxious to know how successful people reached their goals. I am not a NBA fan but because Lin is an Asian, and he is a rare NBA player with a Harvard degree, the story kept me interested throughout.
