Jeremy Lin has landed. In our collective hearts. Deadspin has all the coverage of the Knicks' starting point guard you could want for the day.

And so it has been a wonder to watch how we, the disbelieving yet adoring public, react to him. I have seen a lot of Knicks fans' neuroses and breakdowns play out in public before, but never quite like this: It's as if no one can truly fawn over "Linsanity" yet because the mere mention of his name might make him disappear, like some kind of magical elf. I've never seen a fan base think so little of and still so goddamn much of a single player before.

It was legitimately the most fun I've ever had at a pro game. The other 10,000 Asians in attendance [approximate] seemed to agree. Word had traveled fast.
Featured comment by Sonar Jose: I used to think he was just alright, but for some reason he seems to be waaaay better in MSG.
And briefly: "An Asian Harvard Grad Makes It In New York," i.e. Linsanity.
