Reason For Jeremy Lin's Popularity

I don't know what to say about Jeremy Lin that hasn't already been said. But I will say this, the one major reason he is getting so much attention is because he is of different race. I will give you an example, there is a guy in NY that was an undrafted free agent, who lead his team to a Super Bowl win. I guarantee he ain't getting this much love from the media. Sure the huge interest in Lin is generated from overseas especially from Taiwan, and China. But the American media also plays a part in it.
