Jeremy Lin Discusses Race Issues During "60 Minutes" Profile

Rockets G Jeremy Lin will be featured on tonight's episode of "60 Minutes" on CBS. Lin during the interview discusses the obstacles he faced before playing basketball at Harvard Univ. He "likely could have played on any team in the country, yet he was not recruited by any high-major programs -- or even mid-majors." Lin: "I think the obvious thing, in my mind, that I was Asian-American, which is a whole different issue. I think that was a barrier" (NYPOST.com, 4/6).
