Our own Will Leitch appeared on Morning Joe today to discuss the Jeremy Lin phenomenon and why his emergence is unlike anything he's ever seen. After all, in less than a month, Lin went from playing in the D-League to making national headlines. (As Leitch explains, for proof that he's exploded beyond a mere local basketball story, look no further than the fact that the Kardashians somehow became part of it.) He also spoke about why Lin — who went undrafted and was let go by two NBA teams before joining the Knicks — was overlooked. Said Leitch: "I don't think it was so much race-related as much as, frankly, Harvard-related."
