Linsanity

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.

  1. Watched the game yesterday…. He was a star Harvard player, but since he came from Harvard, which is not exactly a very enticing place to look for “athletes”, they snubbed him.

    Now, Harvard would be a haven for NBA scouts, I bet.
