6. Jeremy Lin (Undrafted in 2010)
One word: LINSANITY! The story of a Harvard grad going undrafted, sleeping on teammate’s couch while on a 10-day contract with the Knicks to becoming a multi-millionaire and regular starting PG. Jeremy Lin is the epitome of the American Dream.
The 2011/12 season’s best moment was Jeremy Lin taking the league by storm after bouncing around D-League teams. Although he had a few sub-par seasons with the Rockets and Lakers after his “Linsanity” year, he bounced back really well with the Hornets, being a key player on a playoff team. Safe to say, Linsanity was not a fluke and don’t be surprised if he moves up this list before his career is up. Could we see Linsanity 2.0 in Brooklyn?
