After watching Linsanity from his victorious plays, I got the thought that's he reminds me of someone in Anime. And yes, I absolutely knows who.. its Akira Sendoh from Slamdunk. Did Sendoh came up to life, they're both shares a lot of similarities. Though Sendo is a Japanese and a power forward/point guard while Lin is a Chinese but they have close common denominator.
they're stats and demographic are not that far similar
both are right handed with the same layup styles
they both plays as a point guard with similar balling style
both can penetrate and slash the basket
