Jeremy Lin has been living the dream for a week now. The New York Knicks player hadn’t exactly made his mark since joining the NBA last year. He was frequently denied access to the players’ entrance by security. Until now, he was mostly known for being a Harvard graduate and the only Taiwanese-American in the league.
Despite his multiple injuries, the Knicks gave him a chance. For three games now, Jeremy Lin has breathed new life into a floundering team, leading it to three straight wins.
Like Tim Tebow in the NFL, the phenomenon is spreading beyond the world of sport, with new information filtering through every day. Before his rise to fame, this fervent Christian slept on the couch of his brother, who studies at New York University.
A great comeback for a player who was cut from two teams before the beginning of the season.
