Many Americans do not realize that there is an incredible sports story going on in the NBA at this moment. Jeremy Lin, the phenom for the New York Knicks, is not your average NBA star. Lin received no scholarship offers out of high school but decided to enroll at and play basketball at Harvard. As a sophomore, Lin was named to the All-Ivy Second Team, and played on teams his junior and senior years that knocked off some of the big names that never wanted Lin such as North Carolina and Boston College. After graduating from Harvard with a degree in Economics, Lin's struggles did not stop. He was undrafted to the NBA, but was able to get an invitation to camp with the Golden State Warriors, and eventually make that team in 2010, but never played in a game. During the lockout after the 2010 season, Lin played overseas in China before returning and getting a spot on the New York Knicks. Lin's time to shine came in his first career start against the Utah Jazz on February 6, 2012 in a game against the Utah Jazz. Lin scored 28 points en route to a 99-88 win over the Jazz and the Linsanity has not stopped since then. Lin is averaging 24 points a game and has lead the Knicks to an 8-1 record since he took over as the starting point guard. It is things like this that make me wonder how scouts who are paid by NBA teams to evaluate talent could miss out on such a good player.
