CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Current New York Knicks guard and former Harvard standout Jeremy Lin '10 has been selected to Time Magazine's "Top 100 Most Influential People in the World," it was announced this week.
"It's great to see good values rewarded in professional sports because that's not always the case. Often it's the bling, the glam, the individual that gets celebrated -- not the team and working together to advance a goal bigger than oneself. Jeremy cares only about one thing -- winning. And I don't care whether you are an Asian-American kid, white, black or Hispanic, Jeremy's story tells you that if you show grit, discipline and integrity, you too can get an opportunity to overcome the odds."
