Jeremy Lin was born in California and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. While playing high school basketball at Palo Alto High School he was named the Northern California Division II Payer of the Year after leading his team to a California Interscholastic Federation Division II State Title. After high school Lin did not receive a single scholarship offer. However, due to his athletic ability, size and 4.2 GPA he was offered a chance to walk on at Harvard University. He’d go on to earn a starting spot at Harvard and become the first player in Ivy League history to tally more than 1,450 pints, 450 rebounds, 400 assists and 200 steals in a career. After earning hiss degree in economics in 2010 he was once again overlooked, going undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft. After signing with the Golden State Warriors in 2010 as a free agent he headed to China for a year before returning to the states to play for the New York Knicks. It was during the 2011-12 season that he became a household name, as “Linsanity” took hold in New York and around the country. After playing just 55 minutes during the Knicks first 23 games he entered the lineup and began putting up huge numbers, scoring 136 points in his first five starts to go along with a high number of assists and rebounds. He quickly established himself as a top NBA player, and earned a four year $28.8 million offseason contract with the Houston Rockets. After two years in Houston he was traded to the Lakers in 2014, then signed with the Charlotte Hornets in 2015.
