Linsanity

 

Film Description:

In February 2012, an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went ‘Linsane.’ Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing. They gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first five NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a legitimate public frenzy in the process.

 

“Undrafted. Unwanted. Unwavering.”

 

Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn’t offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard.

    I’m not much for sports stories or idolatry of athletes and generally think the world spends far to much time and money giving their attention and worshiping athletes and celebrities on just about any stage or in any forum so when i saw this film i approached it reluctantly and deleted it from my computer as soon as I was done.

    The fact that this basketball player has some kind of faith because he mentions the word “God” does not justify this film being referred to as a Christian film. It is yet another story of a fleshly and worldly athlete trying to gain fan points from so called christians who are luke warm at best. If you are looking for a solid Christian film avoid this one.

    I’m really surprised by your comments, he showed a tremendous amount of faith and strength with God as his help throughout trials. He didn’t come across at all trying to gain fans, but really enjoying basketball for the fun of it. To me it was an encouragement to see how he handled the pressures of adversity and prejudice.

    Well i dont think it makes you Christian simply by exhibiting some type of faith and strength even though you might credit “God” for your success or victory, As far as the way he handled what you call adversity, all I can say is you obviously don’t know any more about it than he does cause I promise there was nothing adverse or difficult about his paycheck while playing. So he didnt get a contract offer right away awwwww, so he didnt get recognized awwww, so he wasnt idolized and worshipped immediately awwww, thats how you define adversity? I am not at all surprised that you don’t understand my comment because we clearly define Christian differently as well as the requirements to be one. I go by the definition in Gods own word.

    Prejudice persecution and adversity is what I was referring to specifically. We were just looking at different parts of the same film. If you do feel that strongly about it, the best thing to do is pray. God has ways of reaching us when no one else can. Prayer is powerful.
