In case you haven't heard, Jeremy Lin, the Harvard graduate, undrafted, pretty much unknown until a week ago point guard who's now taking the world by storm, helped the New York Knicks win their seventh straight game last night. We really haven't seen a media obsession quite like this since the NFL season and Tim Tebow. No one can get enough of this guy!

But you know what makes Lin a lot more fun to write and read about than Tebow? All of the ridiculous and crazy and terrible puns you can make with a last name like "Lin." It's pretty awesome waking up in NYC in the morning after a Knicks win to see what the papers and Internet can come up with. Some are good, some are bad, and some are plain hilarious.

Let's hope that Lin keeps on "Linning." Here are 20 of the best headlines with Lin puns so far that we've rounded up:
