Everyone's been going crazy about the NBA's latest Asian sensation, and for good reason. The 6 foot 3 inch (1.91m) point guard has been putting on some dazzling performances, including pouring in a career best 38 points in a victory over Kobe Bryant's LA Lakers.

Since not much is known about him, we've decided to compile a list of facts that you may not have known about "Lin-sanity".

The biggest thing to take from Jeremy Lin's story is that sometimes success isn't thrown at you. People like Jeremy have the special ability to persevere and continue to work hard in the face of adversity, and also make the most of a chance when it finally comes.
