    There is so much wrong in this thread.

    I smirk nonetheless.

    Lin is absolutely legit. Guarantee he is starter from here out. Think his scoring will come down as he and melo develop chemistry and also jr smith is a new addition. This team can be a force, big matchup with heat this week is a huge test though and will show us a lot about how good the Knicks can be

    Kurt Warner.

    Same story, different people.

    Well except Kurt Warner was a bagger at a grocery store after being cut by the Packers (i think), Lin, being smart, could probably do whatever he wants if basketball never panned out.
    Warner was also undrafted.

    Lin's situation isn't new.

    Yeah, but probably the biggest factor in Linsanity is because he's Asian. Sure there's been Yao Ming, but an Asian pg is breaking the color barrier.

    Okay, so you got this Asian kid. He's kinda tall. He is really good at basketball in high school. Really good. He is All-State, Northern Cal Div II player of the year, and his team goes 32-1 and wins the state over a national powerhouse. He is pretty smart, so he is looking at good schools. He has the chance to walk on at Stanford, Cal, UCLA, or go to an Ivy League school. He goes to Harvard. He dominates his conference, puts up 30 on a #12 UCONN in an upset win and his Harvard team sets all kinds of school records and he is a mid-season Wooden candidate and Cousy finalists. He goes undrafted, but then impresses in summer league and after bouncing around the NBA and waiting almost a year and a half (gasp!), he gets a chance to start and has success.

    It really isn't that unique of a story.

    And with all that, he got zero scholarships and went undrafted and was about to get cut for Mike James by the Knicks right before his breakout game. You just explained exactly why it is unique. Thanks.

    He didn't get a scholarship because he wanted to go Stanford or UCLA. They didn't offer. He could have gotten a scholarship at other schools, but he wanted a top flight academic school.

    Everyone's story in the NBA is unique. There is money to be made by tapping into that Asian market, though.
