Analysis: Lin's breakout in the NBA came in New York - with the Knicks - during the 2011-12 season. The craze was dubbed ''Linsanity,'' when the then-little-known second-year guard from Harvard scored at least 20 points nine times in a 10-game span and blossomed into one of the league's biggest stories at that time.
