The super-duper, all-in-one Jeremy Lin thread
 

This 21 yr old Asian American Kid from Harvard is going to be in the NBA next year if not this year. He did pretty good vs John Wall in the Summer League

have only seen some highlights... but i like his quickness speed and hustle, bet his D is better then our current 2 starting pgs....

He would def fit right in on this team however i do not see b.c signing him....

He went to a nearby high school that won the state championship against a heavily favored SoCal team. Obviously his being Asian-American is what makes him stand out, but his talent is legit (he's also played in the SF pro-am league and was in the championship game last summer).

Always thought the guy was a winner, he just has that kind of mentality. That last game matched up against Wall, everything he did was the same that he did while at Harvard. I just never thought he would make an impact quite like he has (and I've NEVER seen any player just rip the ball away like he does from other players' hands).

Hes got some Ginobili esque moves, but hes also going against lower level players. He wouldnt be bad just being signed to an unguaranteed contract as a 3rd pg.

I was thinking the exact same thing, the Ginobili comparison that is.

3rd PG? Don't we already have 4+ PG's?

Did the Mavs draft him?

I like this guy. He's tenacious on the defensive end, and can drive strong to the hoop. If Calderon/Jack and Banks get traded, I wouldn't mind signing him as the third PG.

overrating scrubs much

Calderon will be gone and so will banks, that leaves us with one PG

Banks, where is he going? Not one rumoured says he's going anywhere. Jack/Barbosa/Banks/Beli would be our PG depth if Jose is dealt and we don't need another bench PG. We need a clear cut #1.

hello. Calderon is still signed

"Jeremy Lin", give me a break. The only reason this thread is being made is because he's Asian. If he was white, and possibly black you wouldn't have even heard of this guy.

Hense the words, IF Jose is dealt.

Ok I am back from vacation..now its time to catch up. I watched the video and this guy Lin can play. Lets package Jack and Banks, both these guys are scrubs and can fill the benches eslewhere. Lets go after Lin and Brown. With Jose we will have 3 pgs. Jose will start and excel playing with the young guards. Jose being the best pay maker on the team will average 10 + assists. I really like Lin always did. Jack had a career year so lets move him now,....Jacks best was Joses worst. Get it done BC.

You're kidding right?

He went undrafted but has gotten offers to play with the Mavs, Lakes and an eastern team based on his summer league play.

Believe me most of the reaction to Lin is not unlike yours (and some even more blatantly racist). Maybe you should watch him play, he should be playing today in the Mavs last summer league game against Sacto.

I guess you didn't hear about the Jose trade?

raptorballer13 07-18-2010 11:04 AM

All he's proven so far is he's tenacious and has a winning mentality. This is lower level competition. I like this kid too. I was thinking invite him to training camp. I think they're allowed to cut people from training camp depending on the contract. I think he could fit with all the other young, aggressive, tenacious Raptors!
