New York (CNN) - Harvard economists might not be able to fix the financial crisis but one might be about to fix the U.S.'s National Basketball Association.

Or at least, that’s what they’re saying about Jeremy Lin, New York Knicks point guard and freshly appointed savior of basketball.

Having struggled to find a professional team after finishing his economics degree at Harvard, Lin found himself sleeping on couches, bouncing around the Developmental Leagues hoping for a break.

The hapless Knicks finally gave him one a few weeks ago. Five games and five wins later and we have another sporting sensation on our hands.
