I can’t think of too many athletes, ever, that went from being unknown to one of the biggest sports stories of the decade, overnight, to just blending in as a pro starter the way Jeremy Lin has in the past 2 years. It’s actually very similar to a struggling actor having a breakthrough performance in a film, making the A-list, then getting a huge payday for his follow-up films that aren’t as good as his breakthrough performance but good enough to show he belongs in the business and will remain here for a while.
Although Lin admitted that all of the Linsanity hoopla did go to his head a little, outside of his bank account and becoming the most popular living Asian in America, Lin seems to be the same Lin working with the same friends on his same JLin7 YouTube channel…well, with the exception that now his videos have NBA stars like James Harden and Steve Nash in them. Jeremy, you’ve changed bro!
Be sure to check out some of Lin’s older videos with the funny Kev Jumba and funnier Papa Jumba like this one on the JLin7 channel.

Also be on the lookout this October for the Linsanity documentary that premiered in Austin back in March at the the awesome SXSW festival.
