I’m probably the farthest thing from a big sports fan, but with all of the buzz about New York sports teams recently, I couldn’t help but hear about Jeremy Lin, the New York Knicks’ latest NBA sensation. I don’t have much of an opinion on here – but luckily, you can always trust social media to tell you all sides of the story. The February 18 installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker, powered by NetBase, covered “Linsanity” and what Facebook and Twitter have to say about the Harvard grad who is being compared to everyone from Michael Jordan to Tim Tebow. An incredible 62% of online conversations raved about Jeremy Lin, while almost 13% complained that he was overrated and getting too much attention. Check out some of the other verbatim that I found:

Jeremy Lin is officially my favorite player. #LINsanity #LinForTheWin #linning

Jeremy Lin is one of the best stories in sports. Very inspiring!

Jeremy Lin is overrated to me. People giving him credit waaaay too fast.
