It was clear that basketball has unleashed a force capable of breaking the internet. But if you've watched the youtube clips, you'd have realised Lin doesn't dunk like Blake, drive like Durant or shoot like Kobe. So what's this all about? It's about race. The clip below with Hasan Minhaj does a good job unpicking this issues that have combined to create Linsanity.
