NBA star Jeremy Lin comes to Google HQ to talk about his career, faith, and defying stereotypes as an Asian American and Christian in pro sports.
A native of Palo Alto, Jeremy is the NBA’s first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent, as well as a vocal Christian. In 2012, he was starting point guard for the struggling New York Knicks and began one of the most improbable journeys that sports has ever seen as “Linsanity” spread like wildfire, putting Jeremy on the front cover of TIME Magazine and on the world’s radar.
Over the years, he’s launched The Jeremy Lin Foundation, #ActsofLove, and continues to initiate and invest in various social impact programs that make a difference. Jeremy also travels around the world to testify about his faith journey, coach young athletes in basketball, and make fun YouTube videos. Today, he continues to play in the NBA as point guard for the Brooklyn Nets.
