Sound Off: Do You Think Knicks Phenom Jeremy Lin Is A Heartthrob?

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It seems the whole world has been swept up in the recent excitement over Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin.

Retailers were caught off guard by the sudden, shocking performance by Lin, who as recently as February 3 was still relatively unknown in the NBA after being given up by Golden State and Houston.

But now, the whole world has been caught up in “Linsanity.”

Even Lin is caught by surprise by his sudden celebrity, telling WFAN’s Boomer & Carton “It’s unbelievable. I don’t really have words right now to explain it.”

The sensation has spawned countless Lin-isms: “Lincredible.” “Lin your face!” “Va-LIN-tine’s Day.”

We noticed all the folks at his games wearing Lin masks and got to wondering: Is he the new sports heartthrob?

    Negative Linsanity…………….

    Please see ESPN Insider Tom Haberstroh’s Twitter 02/16/2012 referencing
    NAB All Star’s Budinger, Shumpert, George and Williams, who would be unrecognizable to the average fan if they were in a POLICE LINEUP!!!!

    Jeremy Lin will be assisting his teammate Ian Shumpert in the All Star festivities.

    Shumpert looks like other potential criminals in a lineup….”they all look alike?”

    Guilt by association?

    Haberstroh needs to be busted for racist, insensitive, inappropriate comments.
