Jeremy Lin hasn't always been a household name. Initially, his meteoric rise to global inspiration was a result of his basketball talent. And yes, he is an NBA star, currently on the Brooklyn Nets. But Jeremy's greatest impact occurs when he meets people away from the court. As the son of immigrant parents who sacrificed everything for their children, Jeremy values each moment of his success & recognizes the responsibility that comes with his fame. How many of you are familiar with the obstacles he conquered or the importance of his faith? Do you know how Jeremy felt during his historic time in NYC? From basketball loving son, to ignored Northern California teenager, to becoming a superstar and role model, it's hard to find a bigger and better underdog story in all of sports let alone in the NBA. Jeremy and Randy, friends & teammates, share personal stories and Jeremy opens up about his own struggles with anxiety and the racism he faced while riding the roller coaster of his life on and off the court. If Jeremy Lin’s story doesn’t convince you that anything is possible, well then, you may never be convinced.
