WATCH VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS OF JEREMY LIN
But there is more to Jeremy Lin than just being an undrafted Asian-American point guard out of Harvard. He is also a devout Christian that has previously declared that he plays for the glory of God and someday hopes to be a pastor.
And based on his post-game interview last night, like Tim Tebow, Lin is not afraid to bring his faith to the forefront.
When asked about his struggles early in his career and becoming a star in New York, Lin responded by saying that he is "just very thankful to Jesus Christ, [his] Lord and savior."
Lin and Tebow are not the first athletes to make their faith a key component of their athletic persona.

And the fans are already calling it "Linsanity."
