Occupation: College senior, Basketball player for Harvard University

Jeremy Lin Knows How To Win

Jeremy Lin Knows How To Win



Jeremy Lin is currently the only player in NCAA division 1 men’s basketball that is ranked in the top ten of his conference for scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, blocks, field goal percentage, free-throw percentage, and 3-point percentage. Holy shit, right? Currently, Lin is leading his team to a winning start (currently 7-2), the best it has seen in 25 years.

ESPN published a tearjerking profile of the college senior last week–which most of you readers instantly sent to us–that told the tale of Lin’s hoops-obsessed dad grooming his sons with early drills, classic film, and a deep passion for the game. And though he hesitates to become pigeonholed as a novelty Asian basketball player, one can’t ignore the fact that the story of Lin’s success is that of Hardass Asian Parenting gone good–like the Suzuki method leading to the manifestation of a new Kraftwerk.

We won’t even mention that the lad is also easy on the eyes–we’ll let you think that on your own. We old ladies can’t start creeping out college students, can we? Can we?

    How can the best player in California, not Maine or Wisconsin, but California, not get a scholarship? The prejudice against Asians definitely plays a role in it.

    Lin has the skills and athleticism to play in the NBA. Hope the ESPN coverage gets him noticed by the NBA GMs.
