Jeremy Lin

The Asian American

Why Him?

Coming from a similar ethnic background, Jeremy Lin always appealed to me as a player. Jeremy Lin was one of the few Asian players in the NBA to make a name for himself, similar to legends like Yao Ming, he brought something new to the court. Because of this, his sudden stardom "linsanity," brought him much recognition and made him the better player. I really respect how involved he is in his church and how he contributes to the lives of Christians all over the globe. Aspiring to be a Pastor after retiring he is deeply involved in his religion and is a role model for many.
