Jon Wertheim: Decades before Lin's rise, Misaka made history for Asian-Americans

If you're not smiling at the Jeremy Lin story, consult your cardiologist immediately. There are, of course, so many irresistible elements to this story. This humble kid -- close to being cut for a third time since December, sleeping on his brother's couch, accosted by arena security -- just dropped 38 on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, his fourth dazzling performance in a row, all Knicks victories. There's the Harvard pedigree, the Chinese-American heritage, the Tim Tebow-esque, unapologetic acknowledgment of faith. We love that even in this age of Moneyball and analytics, it's still possible for prospects to surprise us, to make even the best talent evaluators look silly.
