i'd be really interested to see the #'s on his jersey sales. his jersey has to be flying off the shelves right now. you have a rabid NY fan base and he'll draw out the asian market there. then you have the billions in china and let's face it, the other billions of asians on earth. that's a huge market

nbastore is really missing out on free money. the hype is at an all time high

been refreshing his twitter a few times now and every time i did, he would have like 30 new followers

So how the hell did this kid get overlooked in the first place?

He was really good all along apparently...

here's a video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvkXmMcGfLo&feature=fvst

He won the Cali State championship from what I understand and got overlooked by all the basketball schools, and that's why he went to Harvard, so he may actually not even be all that smart (not saying he's stupid,) but he went to harvard based on his basketball skills... People were just being prejudice as **** I guess.

With Chandler and Novak getting passes from J Lin, i could see some similarity from CP3/Hornets circa 2008 in chemistry. J Lin is no CP3 of course but Paul ran the pick and pop with David West and PNR (dunk) with Chandler.

Lin could be that playmaker for those 2 guys.

Got to admit that's very impressive to do it 3 straight times... Why didn't we see this sooner?

defenders are going to start always going under screens to test his jumper. i don't see him scoring 20+ often once teams are able to scout him. they're also going to start hedging hard to try to disturb any PNR's. i wouldn't be surprised to see bigs start meeting him near the 3 point line once it looks like a PNR is developing. that will test his ball handling

that said, he's played PG for NY 10x better than anybody else and the spacing is much improved so the assists could stick. his height is a big plus as he can see over the D and take good angles

Also, Lin brings it throughout the game whereas Tebow only shows up in the 4th quarter.

I disagree, when Amare and Melo come back, teams will have no reason to try to game plan against Lin, he will be third option, if they focus on shutting down Lin Melo and Amare will eat them alive.

Does anyone know will the Chinese like him even though he's Taiwanese?
