Many of you might remember a basketball player by the name of Jeremy Lin? Recap: Point guard for the Knicks, incredible string of games last fall, undrafted, cinderella, Asian-American, went to Harvard –both of which makes him something of rarity in the NBA. 

Well, there are new fears that Linsanity may officially be over, as the Knicks could be letting him go over to the Houston Rockets.

Here to talk with us in today’s Mid-day Extra is Roger Groves. He’s a contributor at Forbes and director of the center for Sports and Social Entrepreneuship.
