Jeremy Lin’s story is almost too Hollywood to be true. Mired with adversity throughout his amateur basketball career, he was confronted with numerous obstacles as he aimed to achieve his dream of becoming a professional NBA basketball player. Lin was always a strong player but his skill was often over-looked. Although he led his California high school team to a state championship, he never received a scholarship offer from a major university. Then, despite having a stellar collegiate career, he wasn’t drafted by the NBA. Finally, bucking the odds and down to his last chance, Lin reluctantly accepted a try-out with the floundering New York Knicks and finally got his big break during the 2012 NBA season.
