The surprising success of N.Y. Knicks' guard Jeremy Lin has become one of the year's best sports/human interest stories  -- and e-book authors are rushing to cash in on it. Lin, an Asian-American who graduated from Harvard, wasn't drafted by an NBA team and was cut by two teams before finding a spot far down the Knicks' bench. Injuries to other players gave him a chance to start, and he has been phenomenal ever since (except for Thursday's disaster against the Miami Heat). Whenever there's a good story, publishers won't be far behind.

It appears Jeremy Lin is leaving New York, and for once, Knicks owner James Dolan has decided to put the checkbook down. By not matching a 3-year, $25.1 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets, Lin is heading to Texas. Dolan has a history of throwing money at his problems -- with both the Knicks and New York Rangers, which he also owns -- and this time, he didn't. He just felt it wasn't worth it, and I have to agree. There's no question Lin can play in the NBA and produce. His 14 points and six assists per game last season are evident of that.

Stefon Diggs, your coach has had a bad past couple of weeks, your own blowout commitment bash notwithstanding . His former ACC Rookie of the Year quarterback transferred. Then he was pilloried for dictating the terms of that transfer release. After finally giving in, he dug in for what might be a protracted battle against James Franklin and Vanderbilt. Then you, the face of a downtrodden program's recruiting class, had to go and tweet something like this Thursday night: “Everybody need to get off Jeremy Lin egg roll and dumplings he's good though .” Diggs' questionable foray into Linsanity was deleted from his Twitter feed , but another Chinese food-inspired post remains there for all of his 4,000-plus followers to see: “Get off his egg roll and dumplins please RT @QuyeneeThePooh: @Marseanbaybee Jeremy Lin is all of it.” Given the uproar over an inappropriate ESPN headline last week that cost the responsible editor his job and a series of tasteless tweets last month that got a big-time cornerback prospect expelled from prep school , you'd think the Good Counsel star would be a little more discerning with his choice of words.

Don't blame Carmelo Anthony if the Knicks don't match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet from the Houston Rockets. Anthony said in a text message with Yahoo! Sports on Sunday that if the Knicks don't match the offer sheet for the point guard, it's not because of Anthony. Still, Anthony didn't appear excited at the prospect of the Knicks offering what he views as an oddly structured contract. Yahoo! Sports reported that the Knicks are unlikely to bring Lin back. “It's up to the organization to say they want to match that ridiculous contract that's out there,” Anthony told reporters following Team USA's practice Sunday.

Big-game settings are nothing new to former Maryland star Greivis Vasquez. The intensity of the matchups with Duke and North Carolina during his years in College Park, as well as what he experienced as an NBA rookie last season with the Memphis Grizzlies, certainly prepared Vasquez well for what he encountered in New York on Friday night. Now with the New Orleans Hornets, Vasquez met Linsanity -- and Knicks phenomenon Jeremy Lin -- head on. Nobody is saying Vasquez was the reason the heretofore woeful but suddenly hot Hornets beat a Knicks team that had won seven straight games with Lin as its newfound star, but Vasquez certainly played his part.

He's good, but no star K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Jeremy Lin is the real deal — as long as the expectation is NBA rotation player and not star. There's a reason Lin went undrafted, got cut and sat low on the depth chart until recently. And, yes, his breakout is one of the best storylines of this NBA season. However, Lin's five-game run has come against three bad teams and a Lakers team with an aging Derek Fisher trying to guard him. Lin appears to be an excellent pick-and-roll player, so that skill should translate to him lasting.

I give all this Jeremy Lin hoopla another month or so. No, I don't think Jeremy will be finished by then. I think he's got another 20 years of great play in him. What I mean is that this incessant bad punning using his last name will finally be exhausted. I think I'll scream if I hear one more pun using "Lin. " The pundits and punsters are quickly running out of metaphors and superlatives. Yes, Jeremy's arrival means a great many things, to basketball as well as to the Asian-American community.

Dodgers fireballer Jansen Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune You might not have heard of Kenley Jansen. But he is well known to Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and their teammates on the Dominican Republic's 2009 World Baseball Classic team. A catcher at the time, Jansen made one of the big plays in the Netherlands' upset that sent the DR team packing. He nailed Willy Taveras trying to steal second in the ninth inning. These days he does his damage from the mound.

The phenomenal debut of New York Knicks' rookie Jeremy Lin -- a Harvard-educated Asian-American -- has stunned the basketball world. Lin was not offered a Division I scholarship, went undrafted after college, and was cut by two NBA teams this season. But he was picked up by the Knicks, and after warming the bench for a bit, has led the team to six straight wins. According to ESPN, in his first five games as a starter, he scored more points than any other NBA rookie -- including Shaq.

Terps senior guard Greivis Vasquez is among 11 finalists for the 2010 Bob Cousy Award, which is given to college basketball's top point guard. Initially, 73 candidates from Division I, II and III schools were selected as nominees for the honor. The list was trimmed to 20 by a committee before being reduced to the final 11. "This final list of 11 players represents the cream of the crop in college basketball at the point guard position," John L. Doleva, president and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame, said in a statement.
