After graduating from Harvard in 2010,  Jeremy Shu-How Lin was passed on in the NBA draft.

Yet after progressing through the NBA summer league, and putting forth a tenacious effort in workouts, Lin was signed to a tw0 year deal to his hometown team, the Golden State Warriors.

After a stagnant season, Lin was then released and signed off waivers by the Houston Rockets. His first year in Houston involved less opportunity and productivity. Lin was once again waved on Christmas Eve 2011.

Signed three days later by the New York Knicks, he was soon to reach the high point on a tumultuous road to success.

He didn’t receive any college scholarships, he wasn’t drafted, and he was on his third NBA team in less than two years. Who knew the flash of Linsanity would soon follow?
