How to Get into Harvard by Jeremy Lin

by richmin3000

3 games ago, the new york knicks were sitting at 8-15 and were the most disappointing team in the nba. a lot of the blame has been focused on their lack of a true point guard. they've tried toney douglas, iman shumpert and mike bibby at the 1, but with limited success.

enter jeremy lin. over the last three games, all wins for the knicks, he's averaged 39 minutes, 25 ppg, 4 rpg, 8 apg and 2 steals per game. and over the last two games, he's done this without the assistance of the knicks top two players, carmelo anthony and amare stoudemire. this is why he's now hearing mvp chants at the garden.

the first chinese-american player ever to play in the nba, lin played college ball at harvard and then went undrafted in 2010. i'm glad the knicks were able to scoop him up this year and i think this is going to be the start of a long and successful career with the team.

below, you can watch a couple of videos of him. one (sort of) funny one where he gives pointers on how to get into harvard (the funniest part being that he didn't into stanford and so he went to harvard). the second video is a highlight from his last game where he crosses over john wall and flashes a little bit of his explosiveness.
