Default Who does Jeremy Lin emulate the most?

He is playing well and Im not sure exactly how he's doing it. He's making it look kinda easy. Seems like he's a very high energy and focused player and just shuts up and focuses on his game. But what makes him good and who does he emulate the most?

Tony Parker with better court vision imo. I mean, he reminds me of that. We'll see if he lives up to the potential. He's real young so we'll see.

That's who I think too. Everyone says Nash but his game reminds me a lot more of Tony Parker. Nash doesn't go to the paint like Lin does.

He's a herky jerky kind of player with deceptive speed. He's not going to beat anyone with a first step but he can change direction quickly. He has hints of Nash and Ginobili in his game.

The way he set up on the lakers bigs was straight out of CP's book. I think he looks a lot like CP offensively the way he attacks the basket but not straight-on with full speed

He's got the finishing skills of Tony Parker, court vision of Nash (although obviously not as good), and the deceptive speed of Dragic.

EDIT: really, negged for this?

yea good point about Ginobili. If Lin can continue improving his 3 point shooting he's going to be difficult to guard.

Lin can drive into the paint and finish with contact. Can draw fouls from the bigs. Can hit the jumper and 3.

Magic called him a Stockton/Nash hybrid. I mean damn dude...

For me, he plays like how Rondo would if he had a better jumper.

Not sure who he emulates just yet, but I'll tell you this...

I don't think he'll be sleeping on his friend's couch for much longer!
