The only one who isn't talking about Lin is the point guard himself, a spiritual and humble person who gives credit to God, D'Antoni and his teammates.
"When I'm on the court, I try to play with all my emotion and heart," Lin said. "I just love the game, playing with this team and coach."
His heartfelt sentiments and enthusiasm on the court also captured the attention of Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.
"The excitement he has caused in the Garden, man, I hadn't seen that in a long time," Johnson told The Associated Press recently after watching Lin's first two games. "When you get a spark like this, especially in a season like this, this could carry them for a long time because they needed something to happen positive. Everything has been really negative."
Lin was waived by Golden State in December after splitting last season between the Warriors and the NBA Development League. Houston picked him up for a couple of weeks before cutting him, and the Knicks decided to give him a look.
New York had just waived its point guard, Chauncey Billups, to free up money to sign center Tyson Chandler. Three point guards couldn't run D'Antoni's offense, so the Knicks were stuck waiting on Baron Davis to recover from a herniated disk in his back. There was no indication D'Antoni would try out a fourth point guard, let alone Lin.
Now there's no rush for Davis. Not with Lin running D'Antoni's offense better than anyone.
"In D'Antoni's offense, he is looking a lot like (Steve) Nash, except a little bit more aggressive in going to the basket and scoring," Lakers center Andrew Bynum said.
D'Antoni has mentioned Nash, too, in his excitement to talk about Lin. And the Phoenix point guard is a fan as well.
"If you love sports you have to love what Jeremy Lin is doing," Nash wrote on Twitter this week. "Getting an opportunity and exploding!!"
And creating a whole new vocabulary.
At the Garden, it's Words with Lin instead of Words with Friends: Linderella; Lincredible; Super Lintendo; and of course, Linsanity, the Twitter trending word of choice.
Expect more puns as he continues to prove himself as a bona fide NBA player.
"He's not a fluke," Chandler said. "Just the confidence he plays with, the pace, the understanding of the game. You can tell when a guy isn't really that skilled but is just having a good stretch. This guy is skilled."
