Linsanity is over for now as Lin tears meniscus

It was not long ago this current NBA season that the New York Knicks had tried out three point guards before settling on Jeremy Lin, who had been cut by Golden State and Houston.

He became an instant world-wide star in the NBA with back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers but now his season has ended.

The 23-year-old Lin will miss the rest of the regular season due to knee surgery that will keep him out of action six weeks. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs, he might be able to comeback in the Eastern Conference finals.

Lin had an MRI recently that showed a small, chronic meniscus tear.

Lin was having a great season for a player who had bounced around for the first few weeks at the start. He averaged 14.1 points, 6.1 assists.

Lin became the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA, and took the Knicks on a seven-game winning streak which was surprising with a team that has Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as its star players.

The U.S. basketball team wants to win the World Basketball Championships. And they want to show the world that they don’t need LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade and Amare Stoudamire to do it.

They are starting to be taken seriously by the other teams in the tournament in Istanbul, Turkey, especially after Monday’s 121-66 win over Angola in the quarterfinals.

Chauncey Billups scored 16 of his 19 points and Kevin Durant all of his 17 points in the first half.

The U.S. made sure this game was over rather quickly, as they raced out to a 10-0 spurt to go up 22-7 and 33-13 after one quarter of play.

The Americans forced turnovers that led to easy baskets on the fast break. When the Angolans forced them to play a half-court game, the NBA stars shot 18 of 38 from three-point range.

Eric Gordon and Rudy Gay also scored 17 points for the United States. Gordon shot 5 of 6 from 3-point land.

Joaquim Gomes, who played his college ball at Valparaiso University of the Horizon League, scored 21 points for Angola, which finished  fourth in Group A.
