Jeremy Lin added to the Linsanity with his game-winning 3-pointer against the Raptors Tuesday night, a shot that produced another fan and media frenzy over the Palo Alto native and former Warriors backup.

The capacity crowd in Toronto -- courtside tickets were reportedly going for 1,600 -- saw the latest chapter in a drama that has seen New York win a season-best six straight games.

Tonight, as the Knicks return to Madison Square Garden to face the Kings, tickets are going for more than 2,000.

What's the latest on the NBA's newest superstar? We sampled the best of the Web on Wednesday, topped by Spike Lee's postgame tweet Tuesday to boxer Floyd Mayweather, who'd stirred things up with a comment on Twitter earlier in the day.

Lee vs. Mayweather
"Floyd Mayweather I Hope You Watched Jeremy Hit The Gamewinning 3 Pointer With .005 Seconds Left.Our Guy Can BALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE.RECOGNIZE" @SpikeLee

"Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise," @FloydMayweather

From the Oval Office
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Wednesday that President Obama is an "avid sports fan" who has been closely following the rags-to-riches story of Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin.
