New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin, an unknown point guard, shot to stardom overnight. Jeremy Shu-How Lin had no athletic scholarship offers out of high school and was undrafted out of college.
Lin is one of the few Asian Americans in NBA history, and the first American player in the league to be of Chinese or Taiwanese descent. He is a 2010 Harvard University graduate.
What a refreshing story after so many NBA divas.
