Linsanity strikes Cross-Sport rankings

There's no escaping the Linsane asylum. Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has taken the NBA by storm, and our Cross-Sport Power Rankings panel took notice, making him the unanimous choice for the top spot in this week's rankings. And why not? He's got New York on a five-game win streak, and the team can't print jerseys fast enough to get to a fan base desperate for a winner.

Lin isn't the only baller making noise on the court this week. Four of the top 10 spots went to basketball players from both the pro (Kobe Bryant) and college (Austin Rivers, Anthony Davis) ranks. With the NFL gone for six months, hoops hysteria is in full swing.

But is it time to stop the Linsanity? Was Phil Mickelson's Pebble Beach comeback better than Rivers' game winner? Check out the full rankings below and let us know what you think in the comments section. If you impress our panel with your critique, you could be featured as a guest ranker for next week's edition.

2012 Cross-Sport Power Rankings panel: Sara Walsh, John Buccigross, Robert Flores, Michael Smith, Bram Weinstein, Mike Hill, Jorge Andres, Charissa Thompson, DJ Gallo, Jim Basquil, Kevin Connors, Will Selva, Jeff MacGregor and Steve Weissman.
