Harvard’s Jeremy Lin, photo by Ren Hsieh
When I asked Ali if I could write up Harvard’s Jeremy Lin as one of his aptly coined Deep Cover Chronicles, he blessed me with the banner with one exception, that I come correct and post “no Dave Corzine stuff.” I’m not gonna lie, I had to look up who Corzine was and for a second, I thought he was talking about the 54th Governor of New Jersey. But alas, Ali, I understand. No, Corzines here, Dave, John or otherwise.
So indeed, this post started as a long overdue shout out to Lin, the best chance any PG of Asian descent has ever had of making it to the NBA–the venerable Wat Misaka notwithstanding from the pre-NBA, Basketball Association of America draft, the New York Knicks no. 1 pick in 1937.
