    For sure. At least all of the crazy hype surrounding Lin involves actually playing well.

    Re: Jeremy Lin!!

    I don't get why people want to link the two. Their paths to fame don't in anyway resemble each other. Everyone knew who Tebow was coming out of college. Heisman winner -- one of college football's all-time greats. Two weeks ago, Knicks fans didn't know Lin -- let alone the rest of the world...

    Re: Jeremy Lin!!

    Agree. Lin and Tebow are about as far away from similar as possible.

    For one it's THEIR loss not there loss.

    Let me defend my comments here. The reason I say Lin > Tebow is because everybody knew Tebow he was a household name before this year and had a successful past including this year. But Lin on the other hand was a relative no name who came out of no where and started playing absolutely amazing basketball. By saying Lin > Tebow I'm not saying he's better at his sport than Tebow is at his sport, I'm saying I would much rather watch Linsanity all day on ESPN than Tim Tebow all day on ESPN. It's pretty obvious that you can't make a cross-sport comparison to determine who is better. I just like watching the kid! He's the man!

    Re: Jeremy Lin!!

    I love that probably most of the Lin followers were probably Tebow haters. Well I will play the card the Tebow haters did. Tebow haters big thing was that Tebow was leading Denver to wins over teams that were not good. Knicks have beat nobodies yes I'm including the Lakers - who are Kobe and 11 pieces of crap. Can't wait till they play REAL teams like the Heat and Bulls.

    Re: Jeremy Lin!!

    The diiference between tebow and lin is that the nfl is a relevant sports league.
