Jeremy Lin is like a shot of adrenalin to basketball fans especially is those fans are Asian and in particular Taiwainese. His folks are from Taiwan and it is not usual to see Asian in these superstar roles in the West so it is quite the thing to watch. He is not only superstar but he is also handsome and shows humility in spite of his success. He has suddenly been catapulted from an ordinary guy on the street to a role model. The media loves him for now and he keeps shooting balls in the basket and gaining more and more attention from his fans and everyone else. According to one Chinese man, Lin gives those like him hope that they can become superstars. Finally they can cheer on one of their own.
