After a difficult season with the Los Angeles Lakers, point/shooting guard Jeremy Lin has a fresh start in Charlotte with Michael Jordan's Hornets.

Lin has shown flashes of that brilliance since, but is still trying to climb back up the mountain he once stood on top of. Think you know Jeremy Lin? Take the quiz.
