Jeremy Lin Talks With 60 Minutes About Why He Thinks He Wasn’t Recruited, Like, At All

California has, like, 30 million people. So if you win the “High School POY” award, it means something. Apparently not if you’re Asian. Even Lin’s hometown University, Stanford, didn’t give him a look after a 32-1 championship winning season where he averaged 15.1 points, 7.1 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 5.0 steals. That’s like painting a Rembrant and not getting in to a 4-year art school. In this sneak preview look at this Sunday’s 60 minutes, the Houston Rocket’s point guard sits down and discusses his whirlwind tour to stardom, and the racial obstacles he’s had to overcome. Also, Charlie Rose refers to him as “Linsanity.” Dude, that’s not his nickname, that’s the phenomenon. Get it straight.

    He is a star in the NBA having graduated from Harvard.

    That is a heck of lot better than graduating from University of Kentucky or Louisville.

    “Also, Mike Wallace refers to him as “Linsanity.” Dude, that’s not his nickname, that’s the phenomenon. Get it straight.”

    Aaaand that’s Charlie Rose. Mike Wallace died a year ago. So you get that straight!

    Racial or ethnic discrimination is best perceived by its
    victims. If Lin felt that his being an Asian athlete prevented him from getting
    a scholarship to Stanford, it most likely is true.
