Lin: Race was a 'barrier' to college
By Mike Mazzeo
Ex-Knick Jeremy Lin believes his race played a role in why he wasn’t given a Division I basketball scholarship or drafted by an NBA team.
"Well, I think the obvious thing in my mind is that I was Asian-American, which, you know, is a whole different issue but ... I think that was a barrier," Lin told Charlie Rose in a "60 Minutes" interview that will air Sunday night.
