Just Lin, Baby! 10 Lessons Jeremy Lin Can Teach Us Before We Go To Work Monday Morning

Lin-sanity has swept up the NBA over the last week. Now it seems like the phenomenon has gone worldwide.

Fridayís 38 point performance by Harvard grad Jeremy Lin for the New York Knicks against the LA Lakers was his greatest performance yet as a starter, since he burst on to the scene and propelled the team to 4 straight wins.

Lin now has over 200,000 followers on Twitter. Heís got over 800,000 on Weibo Ė including 200,000 new ones in the 24 hour period after beating the Lakers.

But thereís more to this story than basketball. This isnít just a modern-day, real-life version of the Hoosiers movie. The Jeremy Lin story is incredibly popular because we can all see a little bit of ourselves in this manís struggles and now successes.
