Lin-tastic! Lin-mainia is sweeping the NBA. Jeremy Lin, the unknown from Harvard, is the new star of the New York Knicks and he has set the Big Apple on fire. Now he has accomplished something some other high profile New York athletes have never done.

 

Mickey Mantle, Joe Namath or Eli Manning have never been given treatment by Sports Illustrated like the magazine has given Jeremy Lin.

Lin is featured on the cover of the magazine for the second week in a row. Lin new stardom is so nice that SI decided to show Lin twice.

In all, Lin is the 12th athlete to appear on the cover of SI twice in a row. Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks was on twice last year.

It's "Linsanity". Check it out.
