Right now, if you look that word up in a dictionary or “Google” it, you’d find a photo of Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks. Lin has stormed to the top of the sports world with his breakout performances as an NBA guard for the Knicks.

Lin is everywhere, even the regular news talks of his feats. The undrafted guard from Harvard, who rode the bench for several NBA teams, played in the minor league and then ended up on the bench of the Knicks this year. He came off the bench when the Knicks were in need of guard help.

Lin scored 136 points in his first five starts, most by an NBA player since the merger with the ABA in 1976-77. He is the first American-born NBA player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent.
