Book Description

99 is proud to announce its first book, WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE LINSANITY: STRANGE TAKES FROM THE STRANGEST SEASON IN KNICKS HISTORY by Jim Cavan, Mike Kurylo, Seth Rosenthal, and Robert Silverman, with Jake Appleman, Jason Concepcion, Jared Dubin, Dan Litvin, and Jamie O'Grady. These bloggers and writers, whose work appears in New York magazine, The New York Times,, and SB Nation among other outlets, live and relive the crazy 2012 season, from the pre-season lockout to an ever-fluctuating and injury-riddled roster, to the burst of heat and light that the emergence of point guard Jeremy Lin represented, as well as the ultimate disappointment as Lin leaves to join the Houston Rockets. The book is introduced by Will Leitch, the founder of the sports blog Deadspin and the author of four books, including his latest, Are We Winning?: Fathers and Sons in the New Golden Age of Baseball (Hyperion, 2010).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, insightful, and nostalgic March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The lockout shortened 2011-2012 season of the New York Knicks was absolutely insane. Despite a shortened season, it was as though the year was layered with multiple seasons, one after another. We saw a slew of point guards struggle to run basic offenses, we saw incredible highs and lows from our superstar Carmelo Anthony, a fired coach, success after a new Coach, embrassing playoff losses yet the first playoff win in over a decade. Oh yeah, that young Asian point guard from Harvard created quite a stir as well.

This is book written by the most prolific bloggers of Knicks fandom, and as a result is equally descriptive as it his heartwarming. Absolutely hilarious at points with unique perspectives all around, very knowledgeable basketball intuition, and of course a wonderful representation of the Knicks season.

If you're a Knicks fan, and fondly (perhaps tearfully) remember this memorable Knicks season, you MUST purchase this book. I have and do not regret my purchase, my only hope being that these writers get together annually and make this a yearly publication.

I feel like I live an enchanted life. This is all the more reason that I don't discount my occurrences in this fast paced world and I now, more than ever, frequently journal my points and dreams as I go through life. Here are some of my thoughts with respect to this publication (by the way, there is no spoiler alert ringing. I will la la la and cover my ears in conversations about a book or movie that I aim to see anyway, so as to have a virgin experience, The purist needn't fear).

"We'll always have Linsanity." Case in point, 5 to be exact. 1.) I was in a Bakery (Sybil's) in Queens N.Y. on 3/31/13, Easter Sunday. 2.) I had just been reading the 1st Kurylo chapter aloud to my friend who was driving with the radio off. 3.) I snapped a picture of the N.Y. Knicks Jacket in front of me. 4.) Random guy was laughing with his girlfriend about 'The eye of the tiger' song playing but I thought it was all about me. So I explained the Knicks jacket picture I took, and 'We'll always have Linsanity' to them. 5.) Other random guy, Brandon Baksh, hears me and says 'I just read that book.' Check & Mate! Talk about your early adopters, the book had only been on the market for a few weeks. Then we had the real photo shoot, Of Course. This is not just a coincidence, You should read it too." - Terrence Wilburg

"Love this book just started reading it and it makes me lean forward in my train seat among other places, to pay attention." -Terrence Wilburg

"Years ago, my friend started reading a book to me out loud to make me psyched to read it. I remember it clearly. He soapboxed from the hall to the elevator and downstairs to the Sunshine day. Today, I'm your Todd Voyager Israel. Read "We'll Always Have Linsanity" Your eyes will thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a yearly publication March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
2012 was, to say the least, a bizarre year for the New York Knicks and the organization's fans. In this terrific publication, some of the most passionate, insightful Knick fans/bloggers around give their canny takes on a tumultuous season that ran the gamut from the enervating under-performance of the early season to the dizzying, spectacular, out-of-nowhere high of "Linsanity."

If you're a Knicks fan, an NBA fan, or someone who wants a glimpse at the psychology behind fandom, buy this book. Though we Knick fans won't have Linsanity again, if we're lucky these gentlemen will come together again and make their essays on the prior season an annual publication. If the quality of this book is any indication, it'd be well worth their effort and my dollars.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a Knicks book... it's not about Jeremy Lin April 12, 2015
I'm a big NBA fan, but also a Chinese American who feels like Jeremy Lin is the person I can most relate to who ever made the NBA. We not only have the same ethnicity, but we went to the same high school. To me, the real interest in LINSANITY is in what his experience as a Chinese American was like... what it felt like to be recruited by nobody despite high school success, what it felt like to lead Harvard and make the NBA... and how much crap along the way he had to take for being Asian (and not Yao Ming tall). Then once he's huge, how was that different for him in New York, or around the world? What was it like for him to not get re-signed by the team he put on the map that year?

This book has none of that. This book is about what it's like to be a Knicks fan or blogger and have that Knick experience that year. He's referred to as "Taiwanese American" once or twice, and that's the only reference you'll ever see to it. There's not even a reference to that excellent SNL skit that highlighted what a huge double standard the ethnic puns showed.

I am still waiting for hear Jeremy's real story.

These writers truly capture the ups and down of a living and dying with your team. Whether you're a Knick fan or not, an enjoyable read. If nothing else, you'll learn a lot about True Shooting Percentage.
