Zaza Pachulia Takes Classes At Harvard

How did he get into Harvard anyway? I’m glad you asked, because Lin made a video for all prospective students of the future on how to increase your chances of admission:

Interestingly enough, I myself applied to Harvard back in the day, and my application essay was a hypothetical debate I had with myself about whether or not I should go to Harvard or declare for the NBA Draft. I guess if I had worn glasses, things might have turned out better (just kidding – Texas forever!).
