The last man off the bench just a few weeks ago, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin is lighting up NBA opponents and causing Linsanity in the sports world.

Battling lawsuits, probation restrictions, stalkers and clothing 24/7, Lindsay Lohan creates a different kind of Lindsanity every time she leaves the house.

From New York to Los Angeles, how do these gripping phenomena stack up against each other? Let's find out in a THG Tale of the Tape showdown!

Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa Bryant just split, but are already working on a reconciliation, according to reports... and photos of them kissing (on TMZ).

Vanessa showed up for the Lakers' win over the Atlanta Hawks last night, and the couple shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.

Love was apparently in the air for the ex-spouses on Valentine's Day!

Kobe Bryant, Family

Vanessa filed for divorce in December, and they already sealed a property settlement deal in which she got all three of their homes and $75 million.

The pair married over a decade ago and have two little girls (above).

However, Kobe has been trying to win her back ever since the split, and the divorce is not final, so there's more than a glimmer of hope for the pair.

While Kobe and Vanessa Bryant submitted all the necessary papers to divorce, it doesn't become finalized until mid-June - six months under California law.

There's plenty of time to withdraw the papers, and it looks like things are trending that way, though Kobe and Vanessa are NOT living together ... yet.

It's official: Jeremy Lin is a Linternational sensation.

The New York Knicks point guard hit a three-pointer with .5 seconds remaining last night to help his team post its sixth straight victory, 90-87 over the Toronto Raptors.

Lin finished with 28 points and 11 assists and has now scored more points in his first five starts than any player in modern NBA history. Watch the game-winner now:

Let's all hope Floyd Mayweather was paying attention.

That law-breaking boxer posted one of the dumbest Tweets in the history of Twitter - which is saying A LOT - this week when he wrote that "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."

Right. Because no black players in the NBA ever receive praise and because Lin isn't accomplishing feats that, literally, no one has accomplished on the court in 40 years.

Can't this bigoted moron go to jail already?

Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover, which was leaked yesterday and goes on sale today, is pretty close to a dream come true for guys.

And for the 19-year-old model herself.

The Floridaian follows in the footsteps of bikini-baring bombshells Irina Shayk, Brooklyn Decker, Bar Refaeli and Marissa Miller as SI swimsuit cover girl.

She's modeled for Victoria's Secret and posed for racy Guess? ads when she was the face of the clothing line, but nothing in her life compares to this:

Kate Upton SI Swimsuit Issue Cover

After Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover was unveiled, she told People, "This means so much for me personally. This has always been my dream."

Upton says the cover image was among the first ones taken by legendary photographer Walter Iooss, Jr., during the photo shoot in Sydney, Australia.

"In the beginning you're pretty relaxed, you're not thinking of new poses and it just feels really natural at that point," she says.

"At Sports Illustrated everyone's so nice. It’s like a family, you don't really think too much into it. I just have a lot of fun and be myself. It just comes so naturally."

Kate Upton's Sports Illustrated cover: The hottest ever?

Kate Upton will grace the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The announcement was made by ... the leaked cover below, first posted on TMZ.

A few of the issues arrived early to a gas station in Michigan (why that state got first dibs, who the heck knows) and the pics are already making the online rounds, as these things frequently seem to do. Check out Kate Upton's SI swimsuit issue cover below:

Sports Illustrated originally planned to announce the 2012 swimsuit edition cover girl and the cover shot at an event tonight ... and they still might. But here she is.

Kate Upton was recently rumored to be dating Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets. There's no rumor about this, though: The 19-year-old (?!) is a stunner!

Upton made a sizzling debut in last year's edition, but it's safe to say this 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover will launch her into the stratosphere.

For those out there saying that the swimsuit issue has nothing to do with sports, annual issue also features athletes in body paint (i.e. Alex Morgan nude).

So there.

The Lin Dynasty is taking over the NBA. He just Lins, baby. His every move is simply unbeLINable.

Seriously, Jeremy Lin is awesome.

After just three starts, the Harvard graduate - yes, Harvard - is the talk of professional basketball, dropping 38 points on the Los Angeles Lakers last night, outdueling Kobe Bryant and piling up the most points in his first trio of career starts than anyone NBA player in 40 years.

Stars from Dwayne Johnson to Spike Lee are singing Lin's praises on Twitter, while the only thing more proficient than his buckets are the pun-based headlines sweeping newspapers around the country.

Before Lin made it big in the NBA, though, he starred in a YouTube video alongside viral sensation Ryan Higa (aka "nigahiga"). Watch “How to Get into Harvard” now and join the Linsanity...

They were teammates on the field, but Hope Solo and Alex Morgan are going at it away from the soccer pitch.

In October, the Team USA goalie posed naked for ESPN the Magazine's Body issue and now Morgan, another star on last summer's World Cup squad, is doing the same in the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

She's seen here in boday paint only:

Alex Morgan Nude

"It was a completely new experience and definitely took some getting used to before I felt comfortable," Morgan says of standing around in nary an item of clothing. "I had to look in the mirror every five minutes to make sure I actually had a swimsuit on."

She does. Sort of.

This iconic, controversial edition of Sports Illustrated will be released on Tuesday, with the cover model unveiled Monday night on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Kevin Youkilis is keeping it all in the Boston family.

The Red Sox third baseman is engaged to Julie Brady, according to The Boston Herald, the sister of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Boston icons

Youkilis first met Julie - a teacher and the mother of a five-year old daughter - at a 2010 party thrown for the Patriots party after they were knocked out of the 2010 playoffs. She's one of the signal caller's three sisters.

The engagement announcement comes at a time when both Boston stars could use some good news: Brady and the Pats lost in the Super Bowl last weekend, while Youkilis and the Red Sox made history with a September 2011 collapse that cost them a spot in the American League playoffs.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has apparently developed a very special relationship with former Jersey Shore train wreck Angelina Pivarnick.

Seriously, he has.

Here's a pic of the self-proclaimed Kim Kardashian of Staten Island, who left the show in Season 2 (and Season 1), cuddling up to the Super Bowl champ:

Ahmad Bradshaw and Angelina Pivarnick

Angelina and Ahmad have been spotted out together recently.

She was at Saddle Ranch in L.A. on Thursday and asked about the relationship. Ange was awkwardly silent, before adding, "I'm not dating him ... like, no."

"We've hung out ... we're really close, he's a cool dude. I think he's a hot black ... I'm not gonna deny that. I would be lying if I told you he wasn't hot."

There you go. Further comment rendered unnecessary.

Get ready to say goodbye to Chad Ochocinco.

No, the NFL star is not retiring (although that can't be too far off, given his waning effectiveness), he's just planning to change his last name back to Chad Johnson.

Seriously. After the ridiculous production involved in legally changing his last name to Ochocinco, Chad's changing it back just in time for his wedding this summer.

The reason? He doesn't want his wife to have a made-up last name. Noble. But couldn't she just stay Evelyn Lozada instead of being Mrs. Johnson or Ochocinco?

Chad Johnson, Evelyn Lozada

Ocho's wedding to his Basketball Wives fiancee is set for July in Florida, and the Patriots wide receiver plans to legally be Chad Johnson again by that time.

For her part, Evelyn swears she doesn't care what name she ends up with, and that the choice is entirely up to Chad ... but he is doing it for her, he says.

The only downside? Chad's legal fees, and how much it sucks for all of you who bought Ochocinco jerseys, though now at least they'll be a collector's item.

Evelyn Lozada and Chad recently postponed their wedding amid a firestorm of rumors that they were on the rocks, but apparently it's back on. Hooray.
