New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin bursts onto national scene

Jeremy Lin couldn't find a university that would offer him a scholarship, so he went to Harvard. Lin couldn't get drafted, so he signed a free agent contract with the Golden State Warriors. He couldn't catch on there, so he went to the NBA Development League. Then he got to New York where was to be the team's third string point guard. But a funny thing happened. After a triple-double in a return to the D-League, he went on a tear and brought "Linsanity" to the Knicks.
