MUST WATCH: Linsanity Defined
A short documentary on #LINSANITY.
After the New York Knicks beat the Los Angeles Lakers in the fifth game of the current Jeremy Lin-fueled Knicks’ winning streak, I left Madison Square Garden to a response I had never seen before. I began wondering what it must have been like when the Knicks routinely sold out MSG and went deep into the Playoffs.
As Lin added to his lore in Minnesota, and then Toronto, it became clear this story, this Jeremy Lin Event, was one sports fans might want to keep.
Above all else, I wanted to remember the feeling.
Filmed on February 15, 2012, at the Sacramento Kings vs. New York Knicks game. Jeremy Lin finished with 10 points on 4-6 shooting, 5 rebounds and a career-high 13 assists, as the Knicks won 100-85.
I hope you enjoy.

MUST WATCH: Blake Griffin and Bill Simmons on celebrating dunks
This is another video I was lucky enough to help make with The Sports Guy and Mr. Griffin. This time, Blake breaks down the proper way to celebrate an alley-oop.
“This guy’s like ‘Whaaaaa?’” - Blake Griffin
“I was in tune with you. We were like E.T. and Elliot.” - Bill Simmons
MUST WATCH: New York Knicks 2011-2012 Season Promo
Whoa. NYK + Marvin Gaye. My blood runs purple and gold, but there is NO PLACE BETTER to watch an NBA game than Madison Square Garden. #NewYork
MUST WATCH: Mayweather’s Cheap Shot
What you don’t see or hear in this video is legendary boxing trainer, and color analyst for HBO, Emmanuel Stewart. When Floyd landed the punches live, Stewart could only say, “Awww, c’mon!”
Make no mistake about it, Ortiz got too amped up, and made a critical error, but winning bouts like that, Floyd Mayweather, won’t make anyone forget that you keep ducking Manny Pacquiao.
mayweather is a little bitch haha
MUST WATCH: LeBron gets faced.
The story’s even better.
“King” James was touring Taipei, where he coached an exhibition games as a NIKE ambassador. Unhappy with his team being tied, LeBron decided to leave the bench and play. The 2-time MVP put on a show, throwing an alley-oop to himself off the backboard, and blocking three consecutive shots from his opponent.
Then this happened…
LeBron got cute at the top of the lane, so his Taiwanese defender ripped him, raced down court, and punched it on him.
The King was so rattled, he immediately came back down court, traveled and then threw the ball out of bounds.
It’s like Game 6 all over again…
