Lin reacts to unveiling of Linsanity the movie
The weather made him a little late, but Jeremy Lin did make it to Sundance as his "Linsanity" documentary premiered.
KSL in Salt Lake City reported that the movie received a standing ovation at the Sundance Film Festival.
It's a story that director Evan Jackson Leong found dynamic enough to tell. It's a story that Lin eventually realized benefited others enough to share.
"The more that I went through my journey, the more I realized how big of a part God was in everything, and I just felt like I had to share it," Lin told KSL's Carole Mikita. "And I had to share it with the world. So this is one of the ways in which I could do it.
"Whether it's racial boundaries, racial stereotypes, or even just a sports story, inspiring other people to pursue their dreams, I think there's a lot of different angles of which I'm hoping this film will be able to impact people."
On Monday, Lin tweeted his reaction to the film:
