Jeremy Lin Will Trademark 'Linsanity'

According to the Huffington Post, the term 'Linsanity' will be trademarked by New York Knicks guard, Jeremy Lin.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected the remaining applicants for the Linsanity trademark, leaving Lin as the sole candidate, his lawyer, Pamela Deese, told The Huffington Post Thursday night.

Lin burst onto the scene for Knicks in February – when "Linsanity" was at its peak, prompting his jersey sales to sky-rocket to second in the NBA, behind Derrick Rose. Lin's play declined as the season went on, and he finished the season on the bench, with a torn meniscus.

The 23-year-old free agent to-be could find himself on a new team next season, but apparently 'Linsanity' will follow him to whichever city he resides in.
