For Those Who Missed It. . . Harvard's Jeremy Lin

is the first Ivy player to play in the NBA in 7 years and only the third Asian-American player ever to play in the Ivies.

And, as gravy for him, he's playing for the Golden State Warriors, the closest team to where he grew up (which was in Palo Alto). How many kids get to say that they made the roster of the closest NBA team to where they grew up? And then how many kids get to say that and that they graduated from Harvard?

Jeremy Lin is a guard, but he's in rarefied air right now.
