Thought for the Day: Jeremy Lin
Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks has become a household name in the last week. Why? Because he was presented an opportunity to play where none existed before.
So the thought for the day (or better, the question of the day) is this: how many Jeremy Lins are out there?
Not just in sports (of all varieties and at all levels), but in politics, music, acting, writing, business, coaching, and the likes?
Are Jeremy Lin’s breakout performances some sort of exception that proves the rule? Or does Jeremy Lin’s not-really-given-a-real-shot experience (up until the very recent past) instead epitomize “the rule”?
I don’t know the answer; I’m just asking the question. However, I tend to suspect there are a number of Jeremy Lins out there, hidden away for reason or reasons unknown, whose skills and abilities are somehow not well appreciated or used.
