On Feb. 4, the New York Knicks were in danger of losing their 12th game in 14 tries when coach Mike D’Antoni turned to the end of his bench and put in point guard Jeremy Lin ’10. Lin’s 25 points, seven assists, and five rebounds against the Nets sparked the Knicks to a win and earned him a starting job. From that night on, his life would never be the same. After leading the Knicks to seven straight victories, Lin won the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award and scored the most points in league history over his first five starts, becoming a national phenomenon in the process. “Linsanity” made the Harvard alum the most widely-discussed athlete in the country, placed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated in back-to-back weeks, earned him a spot in the Time 100, and won him the Best Breakthrough Athlete award at the 2012 ESPYs. Lin’s magical year culminated in his earning a $25 million dollar contract with the Houston Rockets this offseason.
