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.

Yao Ming’s agent, John Huizinga, has asked the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame to hold up Yao’s nomination to the shrine for one year.

Back in July, Yao retired from the Houston Rockets and was nominated by a member of the Chinese media as a contributor to the game, and would have been eligible for induction in 2012.

Yao feels it is too soon for him to be on the Hall’s ballot

Yao, an eight-time All-Star, would be eligible to enter as a player in 2017.

Yao played in 486 games in his career, with 476 starts, averaged 32.5 minutes per game, shot .524 from the field, .833 at the foul line, averaged 9.2 rebounds per game and averaged 19.0 points per game.
