They said: “there is no volleyball tonight” when he would arrive at the gym early for games.
They said he couldn’t be a Division I basketball player. Can’t make it, not good enough, not skilled enough.
They said he couldn’t make it to the NBA. Can’t do this, can’t do that.
They said he couldn’t play in the league.
They said he couldn’t play point guard for the New York Knicks.

Ever since Jeremy’s junior year at Harvard, I have followed Lin’s career. I have seen the ups and the many downs in his first NBA season. I have seen that struggle.
Stories like Jeremy Lin’s are the ones that make sports great and I’m so happy that Jeremy’s heart, sweat and tears have finally paid off. The fact that he is doing this for my favorite team just makes it even sweeter. Just an amazing night.
Oh yea…and I think it’s safe to say that Jeremy isin’t gonna get cut.
