February of 2012 — I'll always remember this month for what was one of the most surreal sports stories I've personally experienced. Jeremy Lin, the first Asian-American in the NBA, an undrafted point guard on his third team, was given a shot from the end of the bench of the New York Knicks. He quickly became the team's leading scorer and led them to a 10-3 record that was highlighted by 38 points vs. Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on national TV and a thrilling buzzer beating 3 in Toronto just days after.
We were all there; even the most casual of basketball fans knows how Linsanity swept the nation. But now we get to dive even deeper into the full story with this upcoming documentary on Linsanity — an official look at the story of Jeremy Lin. Not only do we follow the events during February of 2012, but also from Lin's upbringing to the hurdles he jumped over to even make it to the NBA.
I had heard about the doc leading up to today's first public trailer from its official selection at Sundance, and later SXSW. Now I'm even more excited to relive one of my favorite sports stories through a lens that is right there along Jeremy Lin himself. Catch the well-produced trailer above and see the Linsanity premiere in select cities this October over at linsanitythemovie.com.
