Not an elite athlete, but better than average.

He's listed at 6'3 so I'm guessing that he's closer to 6'1.

no foul call on his drive then foul called when he poked the ball away from bradley.


But at least he got back and got the foul instead of giving up.

22. "The problem is he's on a short leash"
In response to Reply # 21


  

          

he has to get a bit of a leash because he style of play is gonna lead some mistakes.

He's aggressive on offense and on defense--and thats gonna lead to a couple of turnovers and silly fouls--but he can get to the cup and kick out better than any knick pg ive seen this season. Too bad for him he hasnt shown he can finish in the NBA.

On a good team he should not start--but the energy he plays with could easily shift momentum in games a la jose barea for the mavs.

He's not the best ball handler and sometimes you see him fumble the ball but he has a deceptively quick first step that hes used to get past pro level guys since befoe the infamous John wall game. On defense he will get you some steals, play tough defense, and stay in front of his man.

He typically is in position to make the right plays on both ends of the floor cause he is smart (yes Asian/harvard stereotype). Whether he actually makes them or not is another question.

But right today Id rather have him try running a pick and roll than Toney Douglas.

For Lin to actually get long term consideration for soem minutes he's gonna have to

A) learn to knock down an open J consistently

B) finish better at the cup

This is probably the longest analysis ever written Jeremy Lin

I like his handle.

He can get to the basket, we are not sure if he can finish on a regular basis. In order to find out, he has to play.

He is quick and active.

He plays hard.

He can pass.

Shot seems okay to me but he has to play for us to see.


But besides all that, the Knicks DESPERATELY need to find some better backcourt options. Lin came in last night and played with a spark, no reason not to see if he can do it on a regular basis.


Once again, what do the Knicks have to lose? What they have to gain is quite possibly a competent backcourt.

In response to Reply # 184


  

          

version of the knicks.

all the offense goes through melo/kobe
crawling offense, both do big numbers but hoggers.
no good pg
pau/drew better then amare/tyson, but not by much if amare was last years version.
lakers are obviously better.
its crazy how much lin can change that
(not being better then lakes, but being different from lakeshow)

nothing wrong with that because I was hyped as shit to see a US-born azn on the Warriors but dude is just not that good.

He's 3rd PG NBA worthy good, definitely, but starting? LULZ

He should develop himself as an assassin from beyond...its really his only hope because when he attacks the rim...niggas regulate. QUICKLY.

>a weak handle, but he should be a starting guard in the NBA
>why?
>
>Because he's Asian?

I mean im not the only guy saying he should get some tick. Not even start-just get some time. Read the Knicks fans responses on this board and just do a google search of knicks fans responses in general. I dont think many of these Knicks fans are Asian--but what they've seen in the limited amount of time Lin plays, he brings an element of energy and playmaking to the game that the other Knick pgs dont have. In some ways its more of an indictment on how bad Toney Douglas is playing right now, but in the NBA thats what happens--you make the most out of your situation.


I didnt say he cant shoot. he has to be able to shoot more consistently to take his game to the next level is what I said. If you look across the league there are a number of starting NBA pgs who dont shoot the ball from outside consistently

I also didnt say he cant get to the rim. He gets to the rim pretty good actually, he just has to do a better job at finishing. But in his limited playing time he's shown he can get to the rim and create plays for others. Finishing in the NBA is something that can really take time to develop when youre not athletic. Just go back and watch old clips of Nash and Parker (and no im not saying he will even be remotely as good as them) but its something you learn how to do over time.


In the meantime he's a decent "game managing" pg whos more of a natural 1 than Douglas and he plays good defense.

Shit, you play him anymore than 25 minutes hes gonna foul out anyways. He's way too aggressive on D

i always wanted him too, especially when the Mavs passed on signing him after that Rookie Camp, the same one he son'd Wall in. I can't really ride with him deserving a starting job at this point, but to not play him is ridiculous.

garden went nuts, even played pearl jam afterwards. Great game, 25 7 5
he needed more minutes and now he'll get it. Bye bye bibby.
he still can't shoot for shit. I saw him at practice, horrible j. Horrible.
but he should def get mare more looks inside the paint. And that's what this team needs.
he's seriously the best pg on the Knicks

He shoots from his shoulder.

Teams are gonna sag off him quick.

What I liked tonight is he kept playing and didn't let bricking wide open shots keep him from shooting or driving.

Deron was letting him shoot and going under screens by the end of the game but he still found a way. Deron isn't exactly the best defender though--and neither is the team d.

Again my favorite part of hs game was defense. He came in and deron tried to punk him and post him up right away--he gave up a tough shot and some dimes but kept battling and eventually deron stopped trying

and especially since he kept missing those opens jumpers.
i mean him shooting behind the arc was laughable.
he needs to take a step or two in front of the arc at least.
i've seen him in practice where he hits the backboard from the corners.
and then sigh audibly. seriously painful to watch.
he's basically a mini-rondo. or potential to be.
id start him tomorrow if he had a j.
but off the bench he'll do good things.
chandler benefitted.
the jared/jeremy combo worked great.
imagine if he can get that going with amare.

lol at the sigh.
He had some great connection with Tyson too. tyson seemed to believe in him from the jump. I read a quote today where Tyson was like he's been breaking dudes down in practice for a bit.

Melo really seemed to not trust him though. When Melo came in during teh 1st half he took over at Point F and started jacking shots.

Id bring him off the bench. Stakes are high as a starter. I think you can minimize stakes and have hium play a lot of minutes without the pressure as a 6th man or 1st guard off the bench actually.

the risk/reward of having him as a starter isnt worth it. Mike D'antoni pls listen to me.

Cenario was saying though that the Knicks dont have much leway at this point they need Ws

if we are interested in lin's development, we'll continue to bring him off the bench.

however, the knicks are desperate and in win now mode so i thoroughly expect him to start and eventually struggle like shump. Shump's predicament is actually a little worse since he's not a pg.

takes some of the pressure off.

Id say bring him off the bench unless he can prove he can be consistent through 2 weeks.

After last game people are expecting a lot. That NY media pressure busts pipes. Bring hi along slow or you might get the Shump/Douglas effect.

They still starting shump after antni said that it was stunting his development.

>lin's development or winning games.

Shit D'antoni played his ass 15 minutes straight in the 1st half and then 20 minutes straight in the 2nd. I just think starting comes with a different pressure.

He can come off teh bench and still play 30mpg and crunch time minutes.

Anyhow no use arguing cause Jeremy's starting tonight. We'll see what he's made of. I like Jeremy next to Douglas in the lineup.

Jeremy Lin will start at point guard in Monday's game against the Jazz.
Lin is a 23-year-old Harvard graduate that bounced between the D-League and the Warriors last season. On Saturday, he came off the bench for 25 points, seven assists, five rebounds and two steals while sparking the Knicks to a win over the Nets. While expecting a replication of that game is unrealistic, coach Mike D'Antoni's system does have the potential to be extremely point-guard friendly. Lin should be looking at 27-32 minutes Monday, while Iman Shumpert and Toney Douglas head to the bench. Baron Davis (back) is out indefinitely after a setback.

I agree with this. I got an email from the Knicks this morning about buying tickets for tonight's game, and the headline was "Linsanity! Get Knicks Tix for Tonight" and he was the featured played in the ad.

Knicks always keep a guard I like rooting for (Felton, Nate, Shump, later on Blocko) even if they suck

Lin will be another in that line. It'll be funny if he makes D'Poopoo look funny

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

Utahs interior D might be slightly better than NJ's but not by much.

If he makes it through today he gets John Wall rematch tomorrow and the Lake show Friday at home.

In response to Reply # 66


  

          

in the sense the bench will get better with Shumpert coming off the bench, assuming his confidence won't get too hurt. Hopefully Douglas will be able to do something as the backup shooting guard, but it appears his confidence is shaken to the core based on the limited games I've seen this year.

How soon with the Knicks cut Bibby?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i dont know if again is the right word....

Baron Davis (back) has had another setback with his recovery and is out indefinitely.
The Knicks are not expecting Davis anytime before the Feb. 23 All-Star break. He's not practicing, leading to concerns that his conditioning will further deteriorate. Even if Davis does make it back onto the floor this season, he remains a poor bet to sustain health at age 32. Jeremy Lin has been installed as the Knicks' starting point guard. Feb 6 - 12:11 PM

107. "huh? We offered him a contract at the end of training camp"
In response to Reply # 101

He chose to play with the Warriors, who were the only other team in the league who offered him a contract.

I repeat, your hate has you making shit up because we were the team that offered him a training camp invite and also a regular season contract, but he chose to play near home and take the Warriors deal.

Not really sure you can blame it on fatigue either.

The thing is todays game showed the best and worst of what he can do.

he is pretty exceptional at keeping his dribble alive and getting to the basket.

he is a decent finisher.

But hes a pretty shaky ballhandler after a couple of initial moves. he has a great 1st step and good crossover, but if you can stuff that he often hesitates a little.

He keeps a pretty high dribble and fumbles the ball a lot for a pg.

His left is also pretty weak--

So going forward--teams will shade him to the left and send multiple defenders at him to make him dribble around and then give up the ball.


Thats gonna be completely possible until Melo and or Stat get back. I wouldnt be surprised if that groin pull keeps melo out for 2 weeks.

Melo is gonna have to deal with his brother til whenevr.

At least they play the wiz next, but still...Wall is gonna be out for blood.

Please give Lin more than 3 minutes rest--thats ridiculous.

Jeremy Lin goes wild: Its only 2 games but wow (and a Warriors-Lin explainer)
Posted by Tim Kawakami on February 6th, 2012 at 9:29 pm | Categorized as NBA, Warriors

* Thanks to a Twitter-response, I was reminded about my item from July 2010, after Lin signed with the GSWs, and I asked Lin who he might model his game after. His answer: Goran Dragic, in the pick-and-roll. Man, Id totally forgotten that.

-My goodness, Jeremy Lin can run the pick-and-roll. Can really, really, REALLY run it.

Thats something nobody discovered last season when Lin was on the Warriors, mostly because last seasons Warriors didnt often try to run anything resembling the NBAs most reliable play.

Tonight, due to several interesting circumstances, and right before the Knicks had to decide whether to guarantee his contract for the rest of the season, Lin got the first start of his NBA career.

I made sure to DVR it. Just went through it. Whew!

Lin ran pick-and-roll all night, ran it incredibly well, barreled to the rim, played good defense, and slammed the pedal down in one of the more memorable performances of the season so far.


He scored 28 points (on 10 for 17 shooting), had 8 assists (it seemed like a lot more, maybe because his bigs kept blowing lay-ups) and 2 steals in 45 amazing minutes during the Knicks 99-88 victory over Utah at MSG.

In the second quarter, he just destroyed Utah veteran Earl Watsonattacking him so aggressively and successfully that you couldve imagined that was the ghost of Kevin Johnson out there.

But it was Lin. Out of Harvard. Chinese-American. What a story, no matter how else this develops.

Baron Davis is supposedly the Knicks coming savior at point guard. For a couple nights, it has been Lin, instead.

Well see how this plays out. No, I never expected this out of Lin.

But I do believe that anybody who can run the pick-and-roll like that in a Mike DAntoni offense (think: Steve Nash) with the floor spread out is going to do fine, at the very least as a productive, energy back-up PG.

And Lin can run the pick-and-roll.

Yes, he was a plus-12 in the plus-minus, if you need to know. He made the Garden go nuts, of course.

That was with Amare Stoudemire in Florida to be with his family after the death of his brother, and with Carmelo Anthony leaving the game for good halfway through the first quarter with a groin injury.

The Knicks still won going away. Utah looked awful, no doubtthe Jazz big men clearly have no idea how to rotate on the pick-and-roll.

But Lin and Jared Jeffries, Tyson Chandler, Steve Novak, Iman Shumpert and the rest have to be given full credit for making the Jazz look so bad.

The only negative: Lin committed 8 turnovers, all the second half, which mainly is attributable to his fatigue and the Jazz guards swiping at him furiously in the later stages.

Lin is hugely right-hand dominantthat was obvious from last season.

So watch that as the nights go on in his NBA career. Teams will play the pick-and-roll/dribble-right/drive/over-the-shoulder-pass, and Lin and the Knicks will have to adjust to it.

But many great players have flourished for years dribbling mostly with only one hand, and Allen Iverson and Latrell Sprewell are names that come to mind. (Monta Ellis, too.)

Tonights performance follows Lins outing off the bench two nights ago, when he
lifted the Knicks over New Jersey (and Deron Williams), playing 36 minutes and scoring 25 points, with 7 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals (and only 1 turnover).

Lin was +13 in that game.

Great stuff. I dont know how long itll continue, but just those two games, by themselves were great.

OK, lets get to the Warriors part of this.

Lin was without doubt circled and signed at the insistence of Joe Lacobnot yet officially owner, but exerting influenceafter Lin was undrafted out of Harvard in 2010.

Lin had played some ball with Lacobs son, Kirk, in Palo Alto, and, yes, Kirk is now a major player in the Warriors front office.

So the GSWs out-bid Dallaswho had Lin on its summer-league teamto land the Palo Alto High/Harvard star.

Not shockingly, Lin didnt get much action as a rookiein a back court already set with Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis, and with then-coach Keith Smart set to play Acie Law, among others, there was no room for Lin.

I certainly didnt think Lin was a guy who deserved much time, either.

He can play D, but has an awkward jump shot, problems dribbling left, and doesnt have a great offensive repertoireat least, not if theres no pick-and-roll being run.

And for some reason, Smart didnt run much pick-and-roll last season. David Lee is a pick-and-roll big man, thats what he iswhich Lee did all the time in New York (for DAntoni!).

Still, hardly any pick-and-roll for the Warriors last season. (Mark Jackson is running a lot of pick-and-roll now. It might be the GSWs best setput Ellis or Curry at the top, run Lee over to set a screen, see how the defense reacts.)

When Smart was dismissed and Jackson was hired, I dont think Jackson or the incoming front office thought much of Lin, and again, that didnt seem like a wrong conclusion.

The Warriors front office drafted Charles Jenkins in the second rounda more imposing all-around playerand suddenly, there was not much room on the roster for two project young back-up PGs. Only one of whom could shoot pull-up jumpers. (Not Lin.)

-Nobody knew he could play pick-and-roll like this, I repeat.

Lin was brought to camp, but was taken off the floor during the first practice and told hed been waived.

Why cut him then? Because the Warriors were trying to get as far under the cap as possible to make the biggest offer sheet they could to restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan.

Even Lins extra couple hundred thousand (he had a partial-guarantee of about $50,000 this season, but the non-guaranteed part was still counting against the GSW cap) was eating into what they wanted to offer.

The Warriors couldnt stash him in the D-League because any existing NBA contract counts fully for salary-cap purposes. If they wanted more space, the Warriors had to cut Lin and eat the guaranteed money, too.

The Warriors decided Jenkins was going to make the team; there was no need for a training camp roster battle with Lin, and they needed the Lin cap-space, however little it was.

Of course, you know what happened: The Clippers matched the Jordan offer, the Warriors got nothing out of it, Lin was picked up by Houston, who released him a few weeks later, and then he was picked up by the Knicks.

Now, for a little while at least, Lin is King of New York City.

Just because the Knicks ran pick-and-roll, and nobody knew Lin could do that when he was with the Warriors, because the Warriors didnt run pick-and-roll last season.

Thats the way that works.

I guess I have to remind everybody that the Warriors used their one-time amnesty provision on Charlie Bells $4.1M contract this summer in order to get more space for Jordans offer

But Bells contract was expiring, anyway. So by not getting Jordan, the Warriors used their amnesty for nothing.

The Warriors couldve gotten substantially under the capimmediately and into the future if they didnt get Jordanif theyd used their amnesty provision on Andris Biedrins or Lee but they declined to do so.

Result: They wasted the amnesty, still have too many bloated long-term deals, and dont have Lin, anymore.

150. "You Almost Gotta "Feel" It"
In response to Reply # 148


  

          

If that makes sense
The X's and O's are gonna be there, so it is a matter of execution. But PG's can usually feel the timing as to when to make the pass to the roller, or read the defense if they play too aggressive on the cutter, or try to come over the top. A good PG (or passer) can make a pass depending on when the cutter rolls and how the defense reacts

It ran pretty good with Carmelo, but he's not a PG or a point forward like a Lebron. It ran decent with him because he's a better passer than people give him credit for, and he's a shooting threat

It's running GREAT with Lin because he has very good vision, and can hit the cutter depending on how the defense reacts

It doesn't run well with Douglas at all because he's off on his shot so the defense sags and plays the cutter. He's also not that good of a passer, so when he tries it, the pass is off and it's usually a turnover

Amare still no word.


They gotta find a way to beat Washington on the road.

That will give them room to drop Lakers and Minn.

If they could split those itll be great. I think Amare could return on Friday or Saturday.

Funerals usually end up on Friday for early week deaths--but no telling if hes even in a mental state to play--though sometimes it helps to just get on the court--his tweeting shows that hes still keeping tabs on the team.

And I'm one of those Knicks fans. It's almost impossible not to be somewhat hyped about this. We desperately need something to be happy about with this team.

But you have to admit- this is a human interest story that will get people's attention everywhere. J-Lin's like the Asian Rudy.

This has Hollywood screenplay written all over it.

From Ivy Halls to the Garden, Surprise Star Jolts the N.B.A.

By HOWARD BECK
Published: February 7, 2012

He is a Harvard graduate playing in the National Basketball Association. He is an Asian-American in a league devoid of them, which makes him doubly anomalous. No team drafted Lin in 2010. Two teams cut him in December, before the Knicks picked him up.

His contract, potentially worth nearly $800,000, was not even guaranteed until Tuesday afternoon. So for the past six weeks, Lin, 23, has been sleeping in his brother Joshs living room, waiting for clarity and career security.

He has his own couch, Josh Lin, a New York University dental student, said cheerfully.

He should be able to reclaim his living room soon enough.

Jeremy Lins utterly distinctive, mostly transient N.B.A. existence has taken a rather sudden turn over the past few days.

On Saturday night, Lin came off the bench and powered the Knicks to a 99-92 victory over the Nets at Madison Square Garden, scoring a career-best 25 points with 7 assists. Two nights later, he made his first N.B.A. start and produced 28 points and 8 assists in a 99-88 win over the Utah Jazz.

Knicks fans now serenade Lin with chants of Je-re-my! and M.V.P.! while the franchise uses his likeness to sell tickets and teammates and coaches gush with praise.

With every game, every precision pass and every clever drive to the basket, Lin is raising expectations, altering the Knicks fate and redefining the word unlikely. On Twitter, fans and basketball pundits are using another term to describe the phenomenon: Linsanity.

Two weeks ago, the 6-foot-3 Lin was not even part of the Knicks point-guard rotation, despite their lack of talent at the position. He played sparingly in a few games, showing just enough promise to keep getting another look a few more minutes, another quarter. But there was never any hint of what was to come.

With 25 points Saturday, Lin set the N.B.A. scoring record for a player from Harvard. For an encore, he became the first player in more than 30 years to record at least 28 points and 8 assists in his first N.B.A. start. The last to do so was Isiah Thomas, the Detroit Pistons Hall of Fame point guard, in October 1981.

I dont think anyone, including myself, saw this coming, Lin said after the game Monday.

That is, essentially, the story of Lins career. He was cut in December by the Golden State Warriors, his hometown team, after one season in which he rarely left the bench. The Warriors were intrigued enough to sign him but not enough to keep him. The Houston Rockets gave Lin a quick look and cut him.

When the Knicks claimed Lin off waivers Dec. 27, he was fourth on the depth chart at point guard. Now he is No. 1, continuing a long pattern of low expectations and surprising results.

Lin received no college scholarship offers, despite leading his Palo Alto High School team to a 32-1 record and the California championship. At Harvard, he was twice named to the all-Ivy League first team and delivered a signature 30-point performance against 12th-ranked Connecticut.

At draft time, in June 2010, Lin was again overlooked. N.B.A. teams had their doubts about his defense, about his jump shot, about his ability to keep up with the leagues elite athletes.

They were the kind of concerns scouts have every year about dozens of prospects, from all sorts of programs and all sorts of backgrounds. Yet there was no escaping Lins unusual pedigree and the subtle sense that he did not fit a profile.

Lin is the N.B.A.s first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent and only the fourth Asian-American in league history. His parents, Shirley and Gie-Ming, who are engineers, emigrated from Taiwan to the United States in the 1970s.

I think people are surprised, because people dont know him, or maybe hes a pioneer, Shirley Lin said. Theres not that many Harvard players, not that many Asian-Americans. Hes just kind of like underdog. But he works hard.

The qualities that make Lin unique, and seemingly held him back, are now the qualities that make him a sensation. Knicks fans were clamoring for Lin before he threw his first pass at the Garden. They roar louder for his shifty layups in traffic than they do for Carmelo Anthonys.


Lin is the proud underdog defying scouts, stunning opposing defenders and forcing reassessments with every daring burst into the lane. He is more than a novelty now, but also more than just an underrated player finding success.

Social networks lighted up Saturday night and again Monday with excited chatter about Lin, much of it from Asian-American fans who have been following him for years.

Its just a real point of pride, the success he is having, said Carl Park, a 35-year-old graduate student in Chicago and a first-generation Korean-American.

Park grew up a Milwaukee Bucks fan, but he roots for Lin wherever he plays.

It represents a step for the Asian-American community as it becomes part of American culture more broadly, Park said.

To illustrate his point, Park posted a humorous Timeline for what Asian-Americans get called in pickup basketball on his Facebook page. In 1980, it was Bruce (as in Lee). In 1995, Jackie Chan. In 2000, Yao, for Yao Ming.

In 2012, Jeremy.

The first examples came from Parks own experience as a recreational player. The last, he hopes to hear.

Its nice theres been some progress that way, Park said, in that younger guys might actually get called the name of an actual basketball player.

Yet the Lin phenomenon transcends race or nationality. He resonates with devout Christians, because he speaks openly of his faith, a sort of Taiwanese Tim Tebow. He taps into the passions of Harvard alumni, Ivy Leaguers, New Yorkers and anyone anywhere who loves an underdog.

Jeremy Lin was a top trending topic on Twitter on Sunday, in New York and in San Francisco. On Monday, he picked up nearly 10,000 followers on his account, @JLin7. On Tuesday, a Lin-themed rap appeared on YouTube.

No demographic seems to love him as much as Knicks fans, who are suddenly counting on Lin to revive their flagging season. The stars, Anthony and Amare Stoudemire, have struggled. The presumed starting point guard, Baron Davis, is recovering from a back injury. The Knicks have lost 15 of their first 25 games, dousing their championship hopes.

Another setback came Tuesday, when the Knicks announced that Anthony would miss up to two weeks because of a groin injury.

On Twitter, the fan response came swiftly: As long as we have Jeremy Lin, well be fine, wrote @CareyWilbur.

It is perhaps too much to ask the undrafted player from Harvard to save the season. It seems more likely that Lin, who has a degree in economics, will ultimately settle into a more modest nightly role.

But the uncertainty is over. Lin has cemented himself as a credible N.B.A. player, not a novelty act. On Tuesday, his contract became guaranteed for the season. The Knicks are keeping him. It seems safe to go apartment hunting.

I think hes looking forward to it, Josh Lin said.

Q&A: Harvard's Tommy Amaker on Knicks star Jeremy Lin
By J. Michael Falgoust, USA TODAY

Harvard coach Tommy Amaker inherited Jeremy Lin when he took over the program in 2007-08 season. Amaker is 86-53 with the Crimson. With Lin two years ago, Amaker led them to a 21-8 record and into a postseason tournament for the first time since 1945-46. Amaker was an All-America player at Duke and was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics in 1987. Amaker has Harvard off to its best start in program history this season at 20-2. He spoke to USA TODAY's J. Michael Falgoust about Lin this week:

Q: Are your surprised Jeremy has broken out so fast and unexpectedly after being unknown in NBA circles?

A: To have an opportunity at that level you need some things to fall right for you. Given some of the circumstances that the Knicks were dealt with some injuries and the backcourt having open spots I do think that style and that system is something that would fit him well. He's a hard-charging, passionate, aggressive player. He's very deceptive in his gears, in his athleticism and people are seeing that he's a playmaker.

STORY: Knicks system suits Jeremy Lin
Q: How good of a player was he at Harvard?

A: I used to talk about him in front of our team and make mention I thought he and (Kentucky's) John Wall were the two best playmakers in college basketball. Obviously, with me saying that about one of our kids at Harvard went over in a way where players were joking or laughing, even Jeremy. But we always felt he was that caliber of a player that could be on that stage in college basketball.

Q: What is he like off the court?

A: He's very humble in who he is. He has many layers to him as a person, his faith is very meaningful to him. He has great peace of mind about who he is but he's also very passionate about basketball and he wants to go prove it each and every day. When given those chances he certainly knows what to do with it. I'm so happy for him because he's a such a deserving kid to have neat things come his way. If you talk to anybody who's had any history with him they'd echo some of the things I'm saying. There are many people in life who you're happy to see them doing well and having good things coming their way. I can't imagine anyone wouldn't be thrilled for his success.

Q: It sounds like he'd rather get lost in the crowd rather than stand out, which is going to be hard to do in New York City?

A: There's a layer to him that he's uncomfortable with all the attention. He's sensitive as to how things are thought of with his teammates. That's how it was here. This is his profession now. When he was here and things started to explode that way in college as he helped us grow Harvard basketball, he became somewhat of a cult figure around here and when we'd go on the road to play. He'd be a little uncomfortable with all that because it would elevate him to a status above his (teammates). That's not who he is. He wants to be continually thought of as the same person, the same guy. It's a different world and a different level now. It's what he does for a living. Doing it in New York? That's amazing.

Q: What influences him the most?

A: His parents. Wonderful folks. They love seeing him grow and develop. It's just a magical story about this kid, the journey he's been on, the road that he's traveled and seeing where he is now it's incredible. He's very religious. He's true to his faith. That was very important to him. He didn't stray from that (at Harvard). He was pretty dedicated, pretty focused. The ways that he lived his life wasn't complicated. That's what makes him such a unique guy. All this can happen around him but he has a center, a balance of keeping things in perspective and handling things the right way and somehow when you are like that you'll be amazed how many blessing s come your way.

Q: How would you describe what Jeremy has meant to Harvard basketball, which wasn't on the map until he emerged?

A: He was one of the ones that helped us put this thing in motion. We inherited him when he got here and he took off as a player. We were thrilled to ride him as he took us along the way and we were able to grow and bring in some other kids. He led in not only how he played but how he conducted himself. He was our captain and certainty we've tried to continue on that path since his departure. Make no mistake about it, Jeremy was in the middle of this whole new beginning for us.

Q: You said earlier that he had a "cult" following in college. What did you see that made you say that?

A: As he became a senior in this program, people were fascinated with seeing him play. I think the layer of Harvard, being an Asian-American kid, there were a lot of layers to him. And then being darn good, a lot of things made him a very unqiue and interesting kid. That's why people are fascinated now to see how well he's doing. When we played at Columbia, when we went to New York City and it was just an amazing ordeal to see the various communities to come see this kid and embrace him and how he handled everything. I'm sure he's going to handle this the same way, with grace and humility and then go perform

Asian Americans energized in seeing Knicks' Jeremy Lin play
By J. Michael Falgoust, USAToday


Point guard Jeremy Lin has become a sensation not just in New York. He posted his first double-double in his two-year career in a 107-93 victory against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. He's been the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter in his three starts with the New York Knicks. In China on Monday, Lin's name was among the top 10 search terms on Sina Weibo, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter, according to Salon.com.

Fans of Jeremy Lin hold up signs of support for the New York Knicks' guard in Washington.
Asian Americans of all stripes are energized by Lin, the first Asian-American player in the NBA:

"I don't care about the outcome. I just want to see him in action. He's as good of an Asian American athlete as there is."

MORE: Lin's college coach weighs in
Rose Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American nurse from Washington, D.C., who says she attended to support Lin even though she is a Philadelphia 76ers fan.

+++++

"I'm so proud. I don't care if he is Chinese or Korean. I had to see him my boyfriend has been talking about him so much."

Christine Lee, a Korean American from Baltimore, is only a casual fan but came at the insistence of her boyfriend, Eric Hong, who has been talking about Lin non-stop for several days. Said Hong, an avid basketball player, who says he deals with the perception that Asian American players can't play, "but like Lin, you play well on the court, respect comes sooner or later."

+++++

"I'm really excited. He breaks so many stereotypes. And my friends are just as excited. If you go to my Facebook feed, it's all Jeremy Lin. I like that he plays smart. But then he's from Harvard. So that is expected. He is also humble. He reminds me a lot of Derrick Rose, who's always crediting teammates."

Andrew Pipathsouk, a mechanical engineer from Silver Spring, Md., who came to the game with six friends, all wearing orange and blue shirts that together spelled "Linning." It was the first Wizards game for Pipathsouk, a Thai American. He and his Asian American friends organized the outing specifically to cheer for Lin.

+++++

"That Jeremy Lin is playing, is such a special occasion. It's so significant because you don't see American-born Chinese in basketball. You'll see some Chinese players, but he's breaking barriers and that is very special."

Charles Hutton, a Thai American business analyst from Burke, Va.

198. "The Atlantic playing the role of cynic (swipe):"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

"Lin's rapid rise from benchwarmer to crowd favorite also stoked a 13-percent spike in average prices for the game against Kobe Bryant's club, to $312.51 from $276.39, and bump of 36 percent for next Wednesday's more affordable matchup against the Hornets ($89 to $121)."
-- New York Post

"It's the perfect beginning of what could either be Knicks fans' latest colossal disappointment or the league's favorite marketing figure since Yao Ming."
-- Deadspin

Minutes played by Jeremy Lin this season: 135

How to explain Linsanity? How can a cast-off point guard who couldn't crack the 12-man rotation of two different NBA teams galvanize one of the largest and most cynical fan bases in the league? How can two above-average games against two terrible defenses by a 23-year-old point guard cause ticket prices for upcoming Knicks game to skyrocket? How, in the city of Eli and the Giants, can Jeremy Lin be above the fold?

Some of Linsanity can be explained by Knick-fan desperation. Lin plays the position that has plagued Knick fans since Chauncey Billups was cut to make room for free-agent center Tyson Chandler: point guard. The New York faithful have ample reason to yearn for a quality PG, currently the most glaring weakness on a team with two dominant scorers in Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire and a defensive stopper in Chandler. The mantra for Knicks fans during the team's awful 8-15 start was: Just wait for a point guard to run the offense, get our stars the ball and run some pick and rolls, and then you'll see.

The team's need for a good point guard is so overwhelming that fans (including myself) have been waiting with bated breath for a 32-year-old cast-off with a herniated disk in his back and a history of weight problems to hopefully get healthy. So when Lin reeled off 25 points and seven assists off the bench against the New Jersey Nets Saturday night and followed that up with Monday's 28-point, eight-assist bonanza in a win over the Utah Jazz, New York fans were justifiably overjoyed.

But Linsanity is bigger than New Yorkmuch biggerand the phenomenon is more a function of the calendar than anything elsethe year, not the date.

If Tim Tebow was the first athlete whose fame and cultural impact vastly outstripped his playing abilities, Lin is the first who created a Tebow-like impact in less than a week. Both owe the vast majority of their Q rating to the Internet, social media, and the user-generated buzz of whatever sociologists are calling this latest generation.

Lin has several prerequisites for Internet superstardom. He's the first graduate of Harvard to play in the NBA since 1954. He's the only Asian-American (Taiwanese-American, to be exact) currently playing in a league that has been desperately seeking them since Yao Ming hung up his oversized spurs. And he's battled through adversity to make it to the Knicks: Undrafted and cut by two teams in the last year, he's currently sleeping on his brother's couch.

So when this boy-from-nowhere delivered 81 minutes of high-quality play over two games, the Twitterverse/blogosphere/Internet in general went berserk. While the Utah game was still going on, the #Linsanity meme permeated all manner of social media sites. A status update on Lin's Facebook account after the Nets game prompted more than 1,000 comments. Deadspin created a 'Linsanity' tag for all things Jeremy. And the icing on the cake came from YouTube user random2g, who created an original tribute video for the "talk of the league".



When Lin takes the court Wednesday in Washington against the Wizards, most eyes will be on him even when he doesn't have the ball. When the Knicks host the Lakers on Friday in a nationally televised game, fans will be looking for a 45-point, 20-assist game where Lin also teaches Andrew Bynum good manners and tears Kobe Bryant's ACL.

As impressive as his last two games were, Lin's skills on the court are dwarfed by his larger-than-life image online, and his ceiling as a player is probably a serviceable backup point guard/poor man's J.J. Barea. But because he's playing in 2012not 2002 or 1992 or 1982he's a lock to be a relevant for at least the rest of the season even if he doesn't break 10 points or five assists in another game. He checks all the Tebow-esque boxes: college star who was expected to fail in the pros, member of a group with staggering purchasing power (Asians/Asian Americans vs. devout Christians), key position on a team that needs helps to make the playoffs (point guard vs. QB)... the list goes on. And given the NBA's desire to continue its expansion into Asian markets, it's in the league's best interest to keep Lin in the public eye for as long as possible.

So if you pay through the nose to see Lin face off against Kobe on Friday, remember that you're not really seeing Jeremy Lin: second-year point guard. You're seeing JEREMY LIN: cultural phenomenon, Twitterverse-exploder and Tebow Lite. The point guard may go away after a couple bad starts, but the cultural icon is here to stayat least for a while. So sit back, enjoy the ride and join in the chants of "MVP!" after a routine first-quarter layup. It is 2012, after all.

218. "Tyson agrees with you too"
In response to Reply # 204


  

          

When asked if Lin reminded him of anyone, DAntoni said, Im not going to go there, but surely enough he later drew a comparison to Steve Nash. Tyson Chandler drew a more sensible comparison, saying that Lin reminded him of J.J. Barea, his former Mavs teammate.

Like Lin, Barea attended college in Boston. He was undrafted out of Northeastern but eventually helped Dallas win a championship. What if Lin is following a similar career path?

(Jeremy) was probably an inch away from being let go at some point, Chandler said. Its a good thing it didnt happen. Thats the way this game works sometimes. Im sure the same thing was said about J.J. Barea at some point in his career. How did this guy come along? Where is he from?

Then all of a sudden we saw what he was able to bring for a team that won an NBA championship last year. You never know. Some people take different routes to be successful in life. I know its going to continue.

201. "Well written bio article about Jeremy and Tommy Amaker"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1165302/index.htm

gives a lot of details in his family,his snub in being recruited to Harvard, and the kind of person he is. Bonus--the article also covers Tommy Amaker becoming coach at Harvard. Tommy talks about how Jeremy matches up with any player he's ever coached.

What's most surprising? The possibility that he might become the first Asian-American draft pick in NBA history? The bigoted jeers he regularly hears at games (everything from "wonton soup" to "Open your eyes!")? The number of microphones and cameras of Chinese and Taiwanese outletsfive covered Harvard-Dartmouth on Jan. 9that broadcast Crimson highlight packages, including interviews with his coach, Tommy Amaker?

Or is it the hysterically proud new fans, the ones filling gyms from Cambridge, Mass., to Santa Clara, Calif., toting signs and wearing customized T-shirts (WE LOVE YOU JEREMY!) more befitting a Jonas brother than a Taiwanese-American Ivy League point guard?

"The most surprising part," Jeremy Lin concludes, shaking his head and exhaling, "is pretty much everything."

It's a mid-January afternoon, and the senior econ major driving the unlikeliest revival in college basketball sits in his fourth-floor dorm room overlooking a frozen Charles River. He's surrounded by photos of family and friends back in Palo Alto, Calif., a poster of Warriors-era Chris Webber and an Xbox in disrepair. Nothing suggests Lin's status as the first finalist in more than a decade for the Wooden award and first for the Cousy award (nation's top point guard) to come from the scholarship-devoid Ivies.

"I never could have predicted any of this," says Lin. "To have people talk about you like that? I'm not really used to it."

Neither is Harvard (13--3, 2--0 in the Ivy League). An institution whose academic prestige is in inverse proportion to its hoops futility, the Crimson has never won even a conference title. But now, 64 years after making its sole NCAA appearance, the oldest university in America has a big-name coach, a player of the year candidate and its best start since 1945. "I always wondered, Why can't the basketball team be great?" says Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, a booster who kept stats for the team as an undergrad in the 1970s. "Finally, things are building."

So it is that when Harvard visits two-time defending Ivy champ Cornell (16--3, 2--0) this Saturday, it will be the most anticipated conference game in decadesthe NCAA selection committee's midseason bracket projects the Crimson as a No. 11 seed and the Big Red as a 12, which would give the Ivies their first at-large tournament bidand the spotlight will fall not only on high-scoring Cornell forward Ryan Wittman but also on two point guards.

The first one is the curiously under-recruited Lin, a 6'3", 200-pound dynamo who was averaging 17.1 points, 4.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.9 steals and 1.3 blocks at week's end. "I've been around a lot of good players in my life," says Amaker, the 1987 national defensive player of the year at Duke, "and Jeremy's up there. He's sensational."

The other is Tommy Amaker.

Three years ago, in early April, Harvard's redbrick Murr athletics building was the site of a rare process in college sports. Following the bitter firing of longtime coach Frank Sullivan that March, athletic director Bob Scalise convened a search committee made up of administration officials and prominent alums to find the man who might implement a wholesale, "private-equity-like" turnaround of one of the worst programs in Division I. In an unusual step the committee asked the team's nonseniors to interview the finalists as well.

St. John's coach Mike Jarvis was among those brought in, as was Longwood University coach Mike Gillian. Then came Amaker, the biggest nameif only because the 41-year-old coach had been unceremoniously canned by Michigan a few weeks earlier for failing to reach the NCAA tournament in his six-year run.

It was no contest. "Coach Amaker's interview with us was incredible," Lin recalls. "We clicked. Pretty much everybody said, 'We've got to get this guy.'"

A Mike Krzyzewski protg as a Duke assistant from 1988 through '97, Amaker had led Seton Hall to the Sweet 16 in 2000 and won 109 games at Michigan. But most striking to the interviewers, he brought a freshman's intense, starry-eyed ambition for what he loves to call "the Harvard brand."

Amaker wanted a go-go offense that fed off a disciplined half-court defense and sparked highlight-caliber plays in the open court. The result has been efficient (Harvard ranked third in the country in two-point field goal percentage, at 56.9%) and exciting (see Lin's two-handed dunk in traffic against UConn in December). As a recruiter, he wanted to be working the same living rooms as Vanderbilt and Stanford.

But at first Amaker's grand vision attracted the wrong attention. In March 2008 The New York Times reported that Harvard had lowered admissions standards and "adopted aggressive recruiting tactics" that may have violated NCAA rules (possible improper contacts with recruits by Amaker and an assistant). Six months later the Ivy League exonerated him, announcing that its investigation found "no violations of NCAA or Ivy League rules" and that recruits' academic profilesas per the Academic Index, a league formula that sets rules based on GPA and test scores"complied with all relevant Ivy League obligations." (Also, a particular recruit cited by the Times as being academically unqualified to attend Harvard ultimately signed with Davidson.)

Otherwise, Amaker has been successful in persuading players who meet those Ivy League obligations to give the Crimson a close look. Consider first-year forward Kyle Casey of Medway, Mass., one of 14 freshmen or sophomores on the team: A 6'7" poetry lover with a 42-inch vertical who picked the Crimson over Stanford, Casey (averaging 17.2 points and 6.6 rebounds over the team's last five games) didn't think "for a second" that he'd go to Harvard before Amaker started showing interest in him. Neither, most likely, did the 12 schoolboys among Rivals.com's Top 150 for the class of 2011 who are now considering Harvarddo not adjust your monoclealong with such programs as Kansas and Kentucky.

"Harvard won't make sense for every kid," says Keith Easterwood, the AAU coach of one of those recruits, guard Andre Hollins of White Station High in Memphis. "But that staff has taken the blinders off. They're selling basketball and a hell of an education. With Andre, they're going to be in it with Memphis and Tennessee."

But for all of Amaker's moves to make the Harvard brand more enticing to recruitsswitching team sponsors, from New Balance to Nike, bringing old pros Doc Rivers and Grant Hill to clinics ("Now they say they lectured at Harvard," Amaker jokes), highlighting the school's new financial-aid packages, revising the media guide to feature alums from John Adams to Barack Obamathe coach would discover that the key to his turnaround, not to mention his best athlete, was an unassuming holdover who had interviewed him for the job.

Jeremy Shu-How Lin was the only player in the nation last season ranked in the top 10 of every major statistical category in his conference, but this stat might be the most striking: According to the most recent NCAA Race and Ethnicity Report (released in 2009), there are only 18 Asian-American men's basketball players in Division I (0.4%). By contrast, there are 23 students at Harvard with the last name of Lin.

Which is to say that Jeremy's college choice, as stereotypes go, was not terribly novel. Lin's parents, Gie-Ming and Shirley, are 5'6" Taiwanese immigrants who came to the U.S. in the mid-1970s and studied computer engineering (dad) and computer science (mom) at Purdue. Neither ever played a second of organized hoops, but they did watch the NBA. Shirley adored Dr. J; three times a week Gie-Ming took their sons, Joshua, Jeremy and Joseph, to the YMCA and tried to help them mimic the skills they had seen on TV.

All three played high school basketball, but the middle child stood out. "Even as a 5'3", 125-pound freshman, Jeremy lived and breathed basketball," says Peter Diepenbrock, Lin's coach at Palo Alto High. "And more than that, he knew he was the best on any court we stepped on." As a 6'1" senior, Lin led Palo Alto to the state Division II championship, shocking nationally ranked Mater Dei and showing flashes of the primary strengths of his game: fearlessness in the paint, unselfishness in the open floor (he takes only 19.7% of Harvard's shots) and an overhead, catapultlike jumper that is lethal from inside the arc (61.3% this season).

The Kansases and Kentuckys, however, didn't exactly knock down Lin's door. He sent his CV (4.2 GPA, perfect score on his SAT II Math 2C in the ninth grade) and a DVD of highlightsedited by a friend of a friend from churchto all eight Ivies, Stanford, Cal and his dream school, UCLA. Only four schools responded. Out of the Pac-10, Lin recalls, UCLA "wasn't interested," Stanford was "fake interested," and during a visit to Cal a staffer "called me 'Ron.'"

"In hindsight," Santa Clara coach and former Bruins assistant Kerry Keating told the San Francisco Chronicle, "he'd probably be starting for UCLA at point guard."

He hit a 40-footer at the buzzer to beat William & Mary in triple-overtime in November, scored a total of 52 points in two wins over Boston College in the last two years and had 30 points, nine rebounds and two nasty slams in a six-point loss to then No. 14--ranked UConn. Said Huskies coach Jim Calhoun, "I can't think of a team that he wouldn't play for." (There might be one, technically: the Chinese Olympic team. Lin says he would decline a tryout invitation if renouncing his U.S. citizenship would be a requirement for making the team.)

And yet Lin, whose demeanor on the court matches his role as coleader of a campus Bible study group, encounters racism at virtually every game on the road, whether it's fans yelling "Chinese" gibberish (Lin is not fluent in Mandarin, for the record) or opponents using the most vile epithets that can be directed at Asians.

"I really saw it affect Jeremy last year," Harvard guard Oliver McNally says of how Lin would stew in private. "But now? He lets his game speak for itself. They can call him whatever they want."

Once a month, at the Cambridge restaurant Henrietta's Table, Amaker has breakfast with a group of noted African-American scholars and businessmen led by Harvard Law School professor Charles J. Ogletree. Lately they have discussed politics, the dueling philosophies of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, and, in Ogletree's words, "the whole new world" that has enveloped Harvard basketball.

And at 84-year-old Lavietes Pavilion, the Crimson's home crowd has become a blend of screaming academics, new fans from poor black neighborhoods in East Cambridge, well-heeled alums and a small army of Asian-American diehards. "There's a real sense of optimism, excitement, even a sense of family," says Arne Duncan, the U.S. Secretary of Education and a Harvard forward in the mid-1980s. "All that's been missing for a while."

Notably, one fan was on the bandwagon before any signs or microphones or pro scouts appeared. "I think this team is going to surprise everyone," Gie-Ming Lin wrote in an e-mail to Amaker early last fall. "I know it is not easy. But in high school they called my son 'Mr. Improbable.'"

Cue the usual shaking of Jeremy's head, that sheepish exhale of disbelief. For Mr. Improbable, of course, the best part about this surprising season is that nothing seems improbable anymore.

Ivy Pros

If he goes on to play in the NBA, Harvard senior guard Jeremy Lin (right) would become the first Ivy Leaguer in the pros since Yale's Chris Dudley retired after the 2002--03 season. Lin would also be the first Crimson athlete to play in the league since Ed Smith scored 28 points in 11 games for the Knicks in 1953--54. Of the eight Ivy schools, Harvard has accounted for the fewest NBA games played by alumni.

Immigrant dream plays out through son
By Dana O'Neil
ESPN.com

STORRS, Conn. -- The jump hook he used to score his first bucket of the game? That came from Kareem.

In a close loss to UConn on Sunday, Jeremy Lin scored 30 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.
The perfect form on his jumper? Larry Bird deserves credit for that.
The power end-to-end drive with a dunk to finish? Vintage Dr. J.
The sweet dribble penetration and kickout? Score one for Magic.
As Jeremy Lin dissected and bisected Connecticut to the tune of 30 points Sunday afternoon, his father sat in front of a computer screen on the other side of the country, watching his videotape library of NBA greats come to life in the form of his son.
All those years Gie-Ming Lin spent rewinding his tapes so he could teach himself how to play a game he never even saw until he was an adult? All those hours spent in the local Y with his boys, schooling them in fundamentals over and over, building muscle memory without even knowing what the term meant? That silly dream, the one in which his children would fall in love with basketball as much as he had?
There it was, borne out in a gym in Storrs, Conn.
"Every time he did something good, they'd play it over and over again," Gie-Ming said from his home in Palo Alto, Calif. "I kept watching, and they kept showing him."
Soon the rest of the college basketball world might be turning its collective eye toward Jeremy Lin. Think about what the senior has done just this week for Harvard, which is off to its best start (7-2) in 25 years.
In keeping his team in the game right to the end, Lin scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed 9 boards in a 79-73 loss to No. 12 UConn. Then, in the Crimson's 74-67 upset at Boston College on Wednesday -- the second straight season Harvard has beaten BC -- Lin contributed 25 points.
So in two games against New England's annual NCAA tournament participants, Lin scored 55 points and shot 64 percent from the field and 80 percent from the free throw line.
He boasts an all-around repertoire rarely on display. Last season Lin was the only player in the nation to rank among the top 10 players in his conference in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, field goal percentage, free throw percentage and 3-point percentage.
This year? He is merely second in the Ivy League in scoring (18.6 points), 10th in rebounding (5.3), fifth in field goal percentage (51.6 percent), third in assists (4.6), second in steals (2.4), sixth in blocked shots (1.2) and top of the pile in turning the heads of esteemed basketball minds, including Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun.

Want athleticism? How about leaping high into the sky to block a shot by UConn's Jerome Dyson.
"I've seen a lot of teams come through here, and he could play for any of them," the longtime UConn coach said of Lin. "He's got great, great composure on the court. He knows how to play."
And he learned how to play thanks to his father's determination.
Jeremy is not the product of some Marv Marinovich in high-tops, desperate to cultivate the perfect basketball player, but rather a 5-foot-6 immigrant who long ago fell in love with a game and realized that in that game, his own children could gain entry into mainstream America.
Gie-Ming Lin was born in Taiwan, where academics were stressed and athletics ignored. He caught an occasional glimpse of basketball and, for reasons he can't explain, was immediately smitten with the game.
He dreamed of coming to the United States for two reasons: to complete his Ph.D. and "to watch the NBA."
That happened in 1977 when Gie-Ming enrolled at Purdue University for his doctorate in computer engineering. He flipped on the television, and there it was: the NBA in all its late-1970s glory. Kareem, Moses and Dr. J, with Jordan, Bird and Magic waiting in the wings.
"My dad," Jeremy said, "is a complete basketball junkie."
Gie-Ming's first job took him to Los Angeles, where the grueling demands and long hours had him searching for some sort of athletic release.
"I thought it would be great to play basketball," Gie-Ming said.
Only problem? He didn't have the slightest idea how. He had never picked up a ball in his life.
So he turned his attention back to those gripping NBA games. Armed with videotapes of his favorite players, Gie-Ming studied the game with the same fervor he studied for his Ph.D.
"I would just imitate them over and over; I got my hook shot from Kareem," Gie-Ming said, laughing.
It took him years to feel comfortable enough to play in a pickup game, and as he bided his time he decided then -- long before he even had children -- that his own kids would grow up knowing the game from an early age.
When first-born Joshua turned 5, Gie-Ming carted him to the local Y to begin teaching him those valuable skills stored on his videotapes.
Jeremy followed, and then youngest brother Joseph joined in what became a three-nights-a-week routine. The boys would finish their homework and around 8:30 head to the Y with their father for 90 minutes of drills or mini-games.
Forget that all of the players on those videos had long since retired, that the guy with Kareem's hook shot wouldn't hit Abdul-Jabbar's armpit. Gie-Ming recognized what so many other youth coaches have forgotten over time: The foundation for success is the basics.
"I realized if I brought them from a young age it would be like second nature for them," Gie-Ming said. "If they had the fundamentals, the rest would be easy."

Jeremy, top right, and his brothers Joshua and Joseph grew up in a hoops-loving family.
His passion soon became their passion, and as the boys grew up, those 90-minute sessions would turn into wee-hour wars, with the boys scrounging for whatever gym they could find to play.
Joshua would star at Henry M. Gunn High School. Jeremy would enroll at rival Palo Alto High, where Joseph is now a senior.
Jeremy was special. He had his father's passion, his own inner motivation and a frame that would sprout to 6-foot-3. A good enough scorer to play 2-guard, Jeremy also was a savvy enough playmaker -- thanks to his dad and Magic -- to play the point. He's a solid outside shooter, but his dad, Julius and Kareem conspired to give him a reliable game around the rim.
In other words, he was otherworldly, a kid so talented that his freshman coach stood up at the team banquet and declared, "Jeremy has a better skill set than anyone I've ever seen at his age."
Named to the varsity as a freshman, Jeremy would earn honors as sophomore of the year and two-time most valuable player in his league.
Immersed in the game as he was, Jeremy never thought he was anything but a normal kid who liked basketball.
Until, that is, the insults came at him, the taunts to go back to China or open his eyes.
He was an Asian-American basketball player, an oddity and a curiosity in the cruel world of high school, where nothing is safer than being like everyone else.
"It was definitely a lot tougher for me growing up," he said. "There was just an overall lack of respect. People didn't think I could play."
His father offered sage advice.
"I told him people are going to say things to him, but he had to stay calm and not get excited by these words; they are only words," Gie-Ming said. "I told him to just win the game for your school and people will respect you."
Once more, Gie-Ming was right. In his senior season Jeremy averaged 15 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds and 5 steals, leading Palo Alto to a 32-1 record and a stunning 51-47 victory over nationally ranked Mater Dei in the CIF Division II state championship game.
Along the way, he converted some of the people who had mocked him. When Palo Alto played Mater Dei, students from both Jeremy's high school and rival Henry M. Gunn High crowded a local pizza joint to cheer for Jeremy and his team.
Converting people outside Northern California was more difficult. By his senior season, Lin was the runaway choice for player of the year by virtually every California publication. Yet he didn't receive a single Division I scholarship offer.
Lin doesn't know why, but believes his ethnicity played a part.
Asian-Americans make up just 0.4 percent of Division I basketball rosters, according to the latest NCAA numbers. That equates to 20 players out of 5,051.

In back-to-back wins over Boston College, Lin has scored a combined 52 points on 18-of-26 shooting.
Harvard offered an education with a hefty price tag. (The Ivy League offers no athletic scholarships.) But it also offered the chance to play Division I ball. So Lin went without hesitation.
Four extremely successful years into his college career, he now finds himself packaged into an uncomfortable box. Lin is at once proud and frustrated with his place as the flag-bearer for Asian-American basketball players.
The Harvard uniform, the Asian background, it all still makes Jeremy something of a novelty. What he longs for most of all is to be a basketball player.
Not an Asian-American basketball player, just a basketball player.
"Jeremy has been one of the better players in the country for a while now," said Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, who, as a Duke graduate and former head coach at both Seton Hall and Michigan, knows a thing or two about talent. "He's as consistent as anyone in the game. People who haven't seen him are wowed by what they see, but we aren't. What you see is who he is."
But stereotypes die hard and remain propagated by the ignorant. At UConn, as Jeremy stepped to the free throw line for the first time, one disgraceful student chanted, "Won-ton soup."
"I do get tired of it; I just want to play," Lin said. "But I've also come to accept it and embrace it. If I help other kids, than it's worth it."
In their 109-year history, the Crimson have never won an Ivy League title and have managed only three second-place finishes. They have had just one league player of the year -- Joe Carrabino in 1984.
The last Harvard man to suit up in the NBA? Ed Smith in 1953.
Lin could change all of that, a thought that boggles the mind of the man who fell in love with a sport so many years ago.
"All this time he was growing up, I never thought about Jeremy playing in college or professionally," Gie-Ming said. "I just enjoyed watching him play. I'm just so proud of him and so happy for him. I told him my dream already has come true."

203. "Jeremy Lin and the soft Bigotry of low expectations"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

in some ways I've fallen a victim too. Good read although I dont agree with it 100%--i put this up in another post.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/philosophicalfragments/2012/02/06/jeremy-lin-and-the-soft-bigotry-of-low-expectations/


Jeremy Lin and the Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations
By Timothy Dalrymple, February 6, 2012 1:47 pm
Sometimes compliments are the worst insults.

In early 2010, back when he was a Harvard phenom, I had the privilege of interviewing NBA basketballer Jeremy Lin. We were still building this crazy thing called Patheos, so I met Jeremy at his dorm and used a $150 HD camera. I presented the interview in text form (see Part One and Part Two) because Jeremy spoke in an immobile monotone. Even so, Question 1 of my homemade interview has gotten over 36,000 views. Suffice it to say that Jeremy Lin has a following.

He particularly has a following amongst Asian-Americans. And some Asian-American young men, long stereotyped as timid and unathletic, nerdy or effeminate or socially immature have fought back tears (which may not help with the stereotype, but is understandable under the circumstances) as they watched Jeremy Lin score 25 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds for the New York Knicks. Here are the highlights, but the lowlights are the pseudo-compliments from the commentators, whose astonishment at Jeremys success speaks volumes:



I loved watching Jeremys aggression on the court and his enjoyment of the game. I loved seeing his teammates celebration, since Jeremy has obviously won their hearts with his courage and kindness. I did not love the belittling comments. Now, Im always reticent to cry racism, and I wont cry racism in this case. The commentators are not showing hatred of a race. I wont even call it bigotry at least not bigotry outright. If anything, theyre showing what President Bush famously called the soft bigotry of low expectations. Their astonishment at the sight of Jeremy Lin outperforming the other players, their consistent references to how exhausted he must be, and how magical a night hes having (rather than a natural result of talent and hard work) suggests that theyve bought into the stereotype of the physically inferior Asian-American male.



I grew up in the Bay Area with a Korean adopted sister and best friends who were Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Filipino. I married an extraordinary Chinese-American woman, and thus joined her family and community (amongst whom I now live). Even though Im Caucasian, Ive been around Asian-American communities long enough to see that Asian-American men and women face different stereotypes and different challenges. Asian-American women by and large have a positive, helpful image in American society. Although some Asian-American women will complain about stereotypes of submissiveness or nerdiness or asexuality, so many Asian-American women have become doctors, lawyers, reporters and businesswomen that theyre generally seen as intelligent, professional, attractive, friendly, and relatively innocent or untainted by bad attitudes and bad influences. Even positive stereotypes can be confining, of course, but theyre better than negative ones.

For Asian-American men, in contrast, the positive stereotypes are few: theyre good at math and good at short-people sports like table tennis and gymnastics. The negative stereotypes are legion: theyre the geeky, socially inept guys with coke-can glasses in the engineering labs; theyre the perpetual adolescents playing video games on their super-computers at thirty or forty years old; and theyre the physically and sexually immature, small and timid young men who cant talk to girls and get their second jobs before they get their first kiss.

Like most stereotypes, these come from somewhere. Recent generations of immigrants from Asia have come from the wealthy and the educated, so that the families who make it to the United States are among the most intelligent and ambitious that Asia has to offer. Of course they tend to be successful. If it was only the most athletic Australians who could manage the immigration experience, then Australian-Americans would tend to be athletic at a higher percentage than Americans in general. Also, the sons of immigrants from Asia are pressed by their parents (and by their own sense of filial duty) into careers that are secure and financially rewarding, like engineering and medicine. (Daughters are typically allowed to take a little more risk.) Some Asian-American men grow up in ethnic enclaves where theyre relatively sheltered because their parents are (with great justification) suspicious of American cultural influences. And they may begin romantic relationships later because their culture encourages them to focus first on their education and professional development. Isnt that a good thing?

But stereotypes are stereotypes because theyre intellectually lazy generalizations that only tell a part of the story. They feed more off our ignorance and our fears than our knowledge and understanding. The stereotypes I listed above do not describe the Asian-American men I know, or only offer a profoundly caricatured description of one part of their character.

Jeremy, like many Asian-American male athletes, is consistently underestimated. Great basketball players dont come from Harvard for a very simple reason: because great basketball players dont go to Harvard in the first place. Theyre recruited by Duke or Kansas or UCLA or UNC. A high school basketball player with Jeremy Lins statistics should have been recruited heavily by the nations top programs. But Jeremy Lin was unrecruited and had to send video tapes and pitch himself. He performed brilliantly in college, and many college coaches kicked themselves for overlooking him. Then he was undrafted for the NBA but performed well in the Summer League and was picked up by the Warriors. Arguably, there are reasons he was overlooked other than race. Jeremy isnt the flashiest player; never the tallest or strongest guy on the court (he entered high school 53″ and 125 lbs), he has had to add layer after layer of skills and strategies and basketball intelligence. But still, someone with his track record, someone with his statistics and all around game, would have gotten more notice if he werent a relatively small, baby-faced Asian-American in a league that has hardly ever seen an Asian-American succeed.


Jeremy Lin and Yao Ming
Jeremy is not Yao Ming, a 76″ freak of nature with tree-trunk legs who could have an impact even if he was not terribly athletic or aggressive. Hes 63″, broad-shouldered, 200 pounds, and 24 years old but he looks a bit boyish next to the towering hirsute beasts of Eastern Europe. But thats part of whats great about him. Jeremy cannot depend on his size. He has to depend on skill, speed and fearlessness. Jeremy looks at the guys on the court, 5 inches or 10 inches taller than him, 50 pounds or 100 pounds heavier, and he cant wait to take them on. And he often beats them.

Standing in a room full of other Asian-American men, Jeremy looks like a giant. Standing on an NBA court, he looks like those other Asian-American men looked next to him. He represents them in the NBA. Thats why Jeremy Lin is more than a mere basketball player for Asian-American men. Many Asian-American men love basketball with a passion. Some part of them may have bought into the stereotype themselves. To be crude about it: could a guy like me, an Asian-American, hold his own on the court with these mammoth African-American super-athletes? He takes their doubts and insecurities and schools them on the court.

I asked Jeremy whether it felt like a burden to carry the hopes and expectations of so many Asian-American men upon his shoulders, and he answered that he couldnt play for other people. I cant even play for myself. The right way to play is not for others and not for myself, but for God. I still dont fully understand what that means. Im still learning to be selfless and submit myself to God and give the game up to Him. My audience is God. He does, however, have a responsibility to be a godly role model, and when I asked whether it would please him if his success shattered negative stereotypes of Asian males, he broke into a big smile. I would be pleased, he said. Absolutely, I would be pleased.

So would I. You go, Jeremy.

A Point Guards Sudden Emergence Catches Retailers Off Guard
By PATRICK McGEEHAN

In his three bolt-from-the-blue games with the Knicks, Jeremy Lin has proved too quick for opposing defenders, too quick for professional basketballs marketing machine, even too quick for New Yorks black market in counterfeit goods.

On Thursday, a savvy fan who wanted to be the first on his block sporting a Jeremy Lin jersey was, for the most part, boxed out. No official merchandise bearing Lins name or number 17 was on sale at the shops in the lobby of Madison Square Garden or at any authorized retailers of Knicks merchandise. A search of the shops and sidewalk peddlers along Canal Street, often the place to go for knock-off goods in Manhattan, proved fruitless.

The city may be in the early stages of what has been called Linsanity, a mass hysteria especially prevalent among residents who share Lins Asian heritage, like the chef David Chang. The owner of the Momofuku restaurants, he said the emergence of Lin as the Knicks starting point guard in the past week was the most important event for Asian-Americans in sports history. Mr. Chang said that dressing like a superfan was not his style, but that even he might feel compelled to buy a jersey.

Not even a celebrity with the connections of a popular chef could have found one to buy on Thursday. On the eve of the Knicks home matchup with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers, shopping therapy was not a treatment option.

At Gerry Cosby & Company, a store near the Garden that supplies the Knicks with their uniforms, the shelves were bereft of Lin gear.

Jim Root, the stores manager, said it could be two weeks before officially licensed T-shirts arrive. How long it would take to get authentic jerseys with Lins name and number embroidered on them the kind that cost about $300 was anybodys guess, Mr. Root said.

He said Lins burst into prominence had caught Adidas, the leagues official provider of jerseys, flat-footed. The company could not have seen him coming, he said, because Lin was not even on the Knicks roster a few weeks ago and he cracked the starting lineup only this week.

Modells, the chain of sporting-good stores in the city and beyond, also had nothing to offer the Lin lover.

Nor did the National Basketball Associations official store on Fifth Avenue. A clerk there said a lot of people had asked for Lin jerseys.

On Thursday morning, the Knicks online store started taking orders for $54.95 jerseys and $19.95 Linsanity T-shirts that would not be shipped before Feb. 20. But for those who were finding it impossible to wait that long to wear their feelings for Lin on their chests and backs, the Knicks promotional staff was working Thursday afternoon on a cure.

In a cramped, windowless room in the Garden, a few employees arranged orange numerals and white letters on blank, blue Knicks jerseys, then lowered hot presses onto them. And, voil: the only legal No. 17 Lin jerseys in the city, other than the ones the Knicks player wears, were ready for sale.

Starting Friday morning, as many as 200 of them will be offered for $54 in the stores inside the arena, said Stacey Escudero, a spokeswoman for Madison Square Garden. She said Garden officials hoped that some of the T-shirts would arrive before the 8 p.m. tipoff.

For more than a week, that may be the only outlet to satisfy Lins newfound fans, like Ben Chan, who lives and works in Chinatown in Manhattan. Im looking all over for a No. 17 jersey, he said. I checked on eBay and found one for $150. Thats way too much.

Id continue to start Landry--him and Jeremy have good chemistry. Novak in the 6th man role.
But id be really worried about Jeffries on Pau.

Hell if Tyson gets into any foul trouble its gonna be a long night---it already may well be.

Knicks do have LA coming in off a b2b from a Boston game that should be tough and emotional though/

In response to Reply # 211


  

          

besides the SFgate and the Oakland tribune and the San Jose Mercury news?

I mean a lot of the earlier articles written by lin were from east centered outlets because of his time at Harvard.

See Jeremy Lins impact through the inspired eyes of a child
By KEVIN DING
2012-02-10 05:35:17

Plenty of people are telling the Jeremy Lin story, because it's just a good story. The underdog, the unexpected and the first player since LeBron James nearly a decade ago to put up at least 20 points and eight assists in his first two NBA starts.

I could certainly tell you my version of the story as a fellow Taiwanese-American. The spray of Lin's big splash has been invigorating, and it's both fascinating and empowering to consider the cells in the brains of so many closed-minded folks creaking slowly open with every great game Lin has.

Yet I've also covered the NBA for more than a decade, journalistic objectivity desensitizing me on some level to that fan spirit inside. I know this because I've talked to many people by now about Lin's meteoric rise the past week, and I'm not at all clear whether they or the New York Giants just won the friggin' Super Bowl.

As pretty as we now know Lin can run the point, the real beauty in this lies in his effect on others. In this world of big-business basketball, in a season nearly strangled by the lockout, he has provided something absolutely pure.

I know just the person to explain that.

"He's the first one," Justin Wu, 13, said when I called him Wednesday night.

Justin put off studying for his eighth-grade math test to talk to me. He is also Taiwanese-American and is actually my cousin's son. Justin plays for three basketball teams, including starting at point guard for one very serious AAU traveling squad ranked No. 1 in California.

"He proves that Asians aren't all just nerdy and smart," Justin said. "Asians can be athletically just as good as anyone."

Through the inspired eyes of a child we see how simple things can be, how occasionally easy it is for an important message to sink in.

If there's one idea that Justin needs to believe in right now, it's that one. He wants to do the things Jeremy Lin has done. Now there's tangible proof that he can.

"He had the determination and will to be the best and to balance sports and academics," Justin said, "and that's just what I want to do."

Along the same lines, all the people out there who are parents to kids like Justin need examples, too. The Asian-American parent is in too many cases closed-minded, too willing to drive to SAT prep class but not the gym, rigidly plotting a pre-professional plan instead of fanning the flames of passion.

Lin's parents did force-feed him piano lessons like so many Asian-American parents, but he loved and was better at basketball. My parents force-fed me piano but recognized I was better at baseball. My parents force-fed my sister piano but recognized she was just as good at art.

Lin's parents, same as mine, force-fed academics more than anything but they were happy to push Jeremy to excel in the direction he wanted to go. And once basketball paved the way for Jeremy to be accepted into Harvard, all of a sudden Jeremy's mom wasn't hearing whispers about her wasting his time with sports anymore.

In part because of his father's interest in the basketball, Jeremy always wanted to go to the court and soon enough that evolved to where his father was just dropping him off at the gym when Jeremy was Justin's age ... so Jeremy could test himself against grown men in their mid-20's who could seriously ball.

That's the fearlessness that comes before greatness ... but is only borne out of a child developing passion and confidence.

See, this is about race but it isn't. As big a deal as race is, it's actually part of something even broader here.

At its purest level, being a sports fan is seeing something in an athlete that looks familiar, connects with you and resonates inside and then you root for it. Race is just the easiest thing to see in your face in more ways than one.

Justin lives in Newport Beach, and after much debate, his parents decided to take him up to Palo Alto for the Jeremy Lin Basketball Academy in late June. Justin wound up getting some private time with Jeremy, and a few minutes at Jamba Juice turned into an hour and a half of Jeremy downloading insights directly to Justin.

Even more than the jab step that has changed Justin's basketball life, one thing from Jeremy really stuck. Interestingly, it had nothing to do with race because Justin needed inspiration in another way, too.

Justin is 5-foot-1, playing against other AAU point guards as tall as 5-7. Other kids he's playing against are as tall as 6-5 already.

"When he was a freshman in high school, he was only 5-1," Justin said Jeremy told him, "and he grew three inches every year in high school."

Justin senses the prejudgments "because of my height and maybe because of my race." He was nervous despite a strong tryout for the AAU team that he would still be "overlooked."

And again, this is why we need to hear from Justin to understand fully how this inspiration works.

Talk about fundamentals ... we all need reason to hope, but especially kids.

In Lin's case, adults who are Asian-Americans, Christians and Ivy League econ majors happen to be all lining up behind him to indulge their hope, too.

It can be that simple.

It can be, but it often isn't as Jeremy, now 6-3, learned last season with the Golden State Warriors.

His first year in the NBA his supposed glorious ride as the league's first American of Chinese or Taiwanese descent was far from a dream come true. It was easily the toughest year of his life, actually, because of how much pressure he put on himself to live up to the dreams of everyone watching him ... instead of playing with that same passion he was actually inspiring in others.

Part of the reason Lin didn't stick with the Warriors was because he didn't consistently get better. He was worrying all the time about getting better to the point that he was crying in bed when he didn't.

He worked through the mental struggle well enough to take advantage of this sudden opportunity he has gotten with the New York Knicks, who face the Lakers on Friday night. The game will mark Lin's first national TV showcase, and the Lakers will be a far bigger and tougher defense than what he faced in his past three magical victories.

Win or lose, after Friday night more to prove will await.

And as organic as what Justin feels for Jeremy is, it is not blind.

Justin will tell you that Chris Paul was actually only 5 feet tall as a freshman in high school.

"Chris Paul is more of a complete player," Justin said. "Once Jeremy becomes better and proves himself more, he'll probably surpass Chris Paul pretty easily as my favorite. Until he does, Chris Paul is still my favorite player."

i figure 10 and 7 should be enough unless stern 'misplaces' some ballots.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

225. "Random Coaches on Jeremy Lin"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Coaches Say Knicks Have Found Someone Special
By MARK VIERA

Jeremy Lin has been the biggest story in the N.B.A. this week. Hes a Harvard graduate who has emerged from nowhere to give three straight command performances as the Knicks point guard. In the process, he is impressing people who make their living in basketball. MARK VIERA

Jeff Van Gundy

FORMER COACH OF THE KNICKS AND THE ROCKETS

His game makes sense. You see a lot of guards in todays game who shoot when they should pass and pass when they should shoot; their games dont make sense. They may be athletically gifted, but the game is hard for them with decision-making. Lin is deceptively athletic, and he knows when to pass and when to shoot. That seems simple enough, but its not.

Steve Donahue

BOSTON COLLEGE COACH AND FORMER COACH AT CORNELL

Hes got something. Hes got pace and agility and balance. I think hes got all that. In some ways, the N.B.A. is easier than college for a kid like that. Coming off a ball screen that well just translates to the next level. He can see it and make better decisions. I think DAntoni is the perfect coach for him. All I saw the last three games were ball screens. Thats basically what Steve Nash did, and no one thought he would be an M.V.P. coming out of Santa Clara.

James Jones

COACH AT YALE

The one thing that sticks out in your mind is that he does a little bit of everything. When he was in this league, he was in the top five of like nine statistical categories. Can he sustain whats hes doing now? Right now, hes in the right spot in the right time. The question for him will be what he does on the defensive end of the floor.

Zach Spiker

ARMY COACH AND FORMER CORNELL ASSISTANT COACH

To me, it was very clear this guy was driven. There are a ton of guys who are talented who go overseas and you never hear from them. But hes made the best of his situation better than anyone. So its not totally surprising whats unfolding.

Rex Walters

SAN FRANCISCO COACH; ASIAN-AMERICAN FORMER N.B.A. PLAYER

I think the biggest question isnt whether he has an N.B.A. game; its whether he can break through and be a true rotation guy, whether someone can give him the ball and let them run their team. Hes proven that he can play in the league. He might be a little of a throwback. Hes not a blow-by guy, but in terms of being able to run a team and make the right play, hes demonstrated he can do that.

Kerry Keating

COACH AT SANTA CLARA

Hes got a high appreciation-to-entitlement ratio. Hes the polar opposite of a lot of kids who were told they were going to be in the N.B.A. by now. Its a nice story, but its not too surprising. I remember his senior year at Harvard everyone was wondering if he could make it because he was putting up some numbers and affecting the game in a lot of ways. He knows what he is. Hes not trying to be something hes not.

Mo Cassara

HOFSTRA COACH AND FORMER B.C. ASSISTANT COACH

I really dont think its a fluke. I think hes got the approach, the mentality. Now hes got an opportunity. And when given the opportunity, guys who have talent and drive, theyll take advantage of it.

I think he's gonna play well against big guards.

The guards that will really give him trouble are the quick high pressure ones.

there are always stars that were originally undrafted, but he has set the record for most points scored in the first 3 starts, and that's crazy when you think about him being in the D-league just a few weeks ago.

Your answer is in NY...Victor Cruz. Same story, lightly recruited out of HS. Not drafted out of college, barely made roster. Got a shot due to injury and beasted. Right now Cruz is actually the better story because he broke records and helped Giants win Super Bowl, but then of course you have the whole Asian American angle. Two great NY stories in one year.

Coming home late night from manhattan, stepped onto a relatively empty train, two brothers in the car talking about Lin with the conductor. Once they start saying he might be better than Rose, I get involved, by the time we hit the Williamsburg bridge we are all yelling about the NBA through a crowd of drunk hipsters.


I actually mentioned this thread in real life.



Also, couple dudes were openly saying they don't want Carmelo back.


Nothing in the world like Knick fans.

264. "We don't know what Taiwanese voting power is like"
In response to Reply # 253


  

          

and my knowledge of east Asia politics is nil but that weird CG summary of Lin's rise to power from Taiwanese news seemed to imply they don't take kindly to the Chinese, which makes me assume the Chinese wouldn't be voting Lin just for fun like they did Yao.

Aint Barkley & Whaq drafting the squads this year? Either one of em on the BandwagLin yet? Between them & Stern I bet they find a way to get him on the roster. If not that game then maybe some other skills competition or som'n.

256. "Nerds coulda played together in Stanford together (swipe)"

all this might not have transpired interesting read

http://www.zagsblog.com/2012/02/10/coach-says-jeremy-lin-was-misled-by-stanford-coach/

NEW YORK It was the first week of January 2006 and Jeremy Lin was dead set on going to Stanford out of Palo Alto High School.

This, according to Peter Diepenbrock, Lins high school coach.

The problem was that then-Stanford coach Trent Johnson this thing up bad, really bad, Diepenbrock told SNY.tv Friday by phone hours before Lin went off for a career-high 38 points to go with seven assists in the Knicks 92-85 victory over Kobe Bryant and the Lakers at Madison Square Garden.

According to Diepenbrock, during that January 2006 meeting in Johnsons office with Lin, Lins mother, Shirley, and Diepenbrock, Johnson said he had only one scholarship remaining for the 2006-7 season after three players Will Paul and future NBA players Brook and Robin Lopez had signed in the fall.

We really want you on the team, Diepenbrock recalled Johnson saying to Lin.

What about a scholarship? Shirley asked.

Her son didnt have a single Division I scholarship offer despite being en route to leading his team to a California Interscholastic Federation Division II title and earning All-State honors.

According to Diepenbrock, Johnson said he was recruiting two other guys, adding, Whichever one of these two guys commits, thats who were going to give it to.

If neither of them comes, can Jeremy have the one scholarship? Diepenbrock recalled Shirley asking

If they dont come, definitely, definitely, he recalled Johnson saying.

Its reasonable of him to say that, Diepenbrock told Shirley.

Johnson said by phone that he already had enough players committed and wanted Lin to walk on that year.

Walk on fine, scholarship the following year, thats what I remember, Johnson said.

Johnson added that its not his policy to over-recruit because ultimately thats not good for anyone.

I dont over-recruit, Johnson said. Theyre not very happy and they leave.

He added that there were a lot of people who didnt offer him the opportunity to walk-on.

By early February 2006, Stanford accepted commitments from two additional players, giving them a five-man recruiting class.

Their names?

One was Landry Fields, a wing who chose Stanford over Arizona. He, of course, is now the current starting shooting guard on the Knicks.

The other was DaVeed Dildy, a 6-5 point guard out of Chicago whom Johnson had courted heavily.

They both commit and they both get scholarships, Diepenbrock said.

Oh, boy did that not go over.

Diepenbrock said Lin and his mother were so turned off by what happened, that when a Stanford assistant tried calling Lin later on to get him to walk-on, he never returned the calls.

Come on, coach, I cant play for somebody I cant trust, Diepenbrock recalled Lin saying.

Asked after the Knicks game if he was even aware Stanford was recruiting Lin at the time, Fields said, No, not at all.

Should they have used a scholarship on him?

Maybe, you dont know, Fields said. Its in the past. And things might not have worked out for him the way they are right now because stuff happens.

Lin ultimately landed
