A lot of ppl are still doubting this signing and believe this is just a PR move. Hope Lin proves them wrong.

Jeremy, make sure you work real hard on your outside and pull up J. With those weapons, I think you can be dangerous. More power!

I assume the teams sign a lot of people for training camp, then keep the best for the final roster. Good luck, Jeremy. Hope you can take it to the next level.

He's the 4th Asian American in the NBA? I know that guy Walt M in 1947 or so, Rex Walters, and that's it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

First - Harvard didn't finish second to Cornell this year in the Ivy League. Princeton finished second, Harvard finished third.

Secondly - well, especially after looking at his stats and how his teams played against Cornell and Princeton there's a reason he's not "Big-Game Lin".
