As Deadspin so eloquently put it: “The true measure of Linsanity comes from Washington’s Maurice Evans, who sees No. 17 coming, takes a tentative slide step toward stopping him, then changes his mind and throws his body out of the picture, Patriots-against-Ahmad Bradshaw style. No one will ever mistake Maurice Evans for Kendrick Perkins, that’s for sure.
Note: The title of the post has nothing to do with John Stark’s much more impressive version of “The Dunk” over Michael Jordan in the 1993 Playoffs. It’s crazy that there are uncanny similarities between Starks’ early career and Lin’s, but perhaps that will be the topic of a future post.
