Yesterday, I got surprised upon seeing an Asian basketball player who is not Yao Ming in the newspaper sports section. I thought it was Yi Jianlian but I was wrong.
A long time ago, I’ve seen an article in NBA.com before that there’s a promising point guard, a straight A student from Harvard, entering the NBA. But it took years for Jeremy Lin to get his deserved attention from the NBA.
How good is he? He scored 20+ points in three straight games, even scoring 38 points against Kobe and the Lakers team. It’s like someone has created a player in NBA 2K12 game.
Still not convinced? You might want to check this article from NY Times here.
I’m just surprised from his sudden stardom.
