Inspired by his father, Jeremy Lin learned how to play basketball at the local YMCA with his brothers. Growing up in California, it wasnt until high school that Jeremy started to play basketball for the school team. He was an outstanding student, but he was picked on for being a skinny and weak basketball player. Just before his senior year in high school, he was chosen to attend Harvard, where he would go on to become an Ivy League player. He was signed by the Golden State Warriors, but wasnt given much opportunity to play. At the end of 2011, he was signed by the Knicks and led them to seven straight victories, which sparked a global following that became known as Linsanity. In 2012, he signed a three–year contract with the Houston Rockets. He started the Jeremy Lin Foundation to help underprivileged kids and communities. Will Linsanity continue to unfold . . . only time will tell.
