Jeremy Lin - the first player in 30 years to score at least 28 points and hand out at least 8 assists in his first NBA start. A Harvard graduate with a degree in Economics. And yes he is a pro baller and yes he is ASIAN!

 Picture can be found here.

At 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds Lin does look the part of an NBA point guard, sort of, he is big and athletic, but beyond that he doesn't share similarities to anyone else who has ever played the game.

In the history of the NBA there have been few players of Asian descent, but more than most people realize. Yi Jianlian and of course Yao Ming are prominent Asians in the league.

In the first three starts of his professional career Lin has gone off. He is averaging 25.3 points and 8.3 assists from the point guard spot. Against the Wizards on Wednesday night he chipped in his first ever double-double with 23 points and 10 assists.

Here is what Jeremy is averaging in his first 3 games given extended minutes:

25.33 pts
.58 FG%
.10 3P%
.77 FT%
3.7 Reb
8.33 Assists
1.67 Steals
.33 Blocks

In my opinion, Jeremy's two greatest attributes are immeasurable:

•  Heart (toughness, desire, will to win)
•  Court savy (bball iq, bball instincts)

By the way, it's the Lakers vs NYK. What I heard is that courtside tickets are going for as much as $10,000.00! A little consistency til the end of the season and we might see his name here: NBA MVP Race.
