It may seem a bit weird for a player to create a page and then a profile, but keep in mind that, when his page was created, he was not expecting this kind of following and demand for all things Lin.
Having a personal profile with subscriptions enabled is a much more desirable for an individual that is tasked with maintaining his own presence. It just cuts down on the busy-work and duplicated efforts.
The real question is: How long does this craziness last? Tim Tebow’s 15 mins ended with a playoff loss. Does Lin’s end with a losing streak? It will be very interesting to see how/when Lin comes back down to earth.
