Jeremy Lin & Linsanity will grace the cover of Time magazine next week in yet another major ego boost for the breakout New York Knicks star.
The Knicks' new point guard, who has only started in six games so far, has already earned praise from President Barack Obama (林书豪神奇表现感动奥巴马>>), become the hottest sports star on earth, and inspired the entire Asian-American community.
And now Time magazine is running a cover story on Jeremy Lin, the Taiwanese-American basketball sensation. The cover of the Feb. 27 edition of Time, which was released Thursday, will bear a photo of him going for an underhand lay-up, overlaid with the word "LINSANITY!" in all caps, with a subheadline reading "Jeremy Lin lights up the NBA."
It also includes a note that says "Since 1976 no one has scored more points in his first four starts than Jeremy Lin. That's more than Jordan. More than Lebron."
The article, titled "Linsanity!" and written by Sean Gregory, will be accompanied by a lengthy article about Jeremy Lin and Linsanity. A preview of the story's text is currently posted at Time.com, reading as follows:
"To measure the immediate sociological impact of Jeremy Lin--the electric New York Knicks point guard who has jolted the NBA--start on the weekend-warrior basketball floor. In a gym near New York City's Chinatown two days after Lin torched the Los Angeles Lakers for 38 points and a day after the Knicks won their fifth consecutive game with Lin running the show, a group of African-American players prepped for a rec-league game. Most of the competition was Asian American. The message: Ditch the stereotypes of the Asian dudes as pesky players who nevertheless won't be hard to beat."
