What They Are Saying About Jeremy Lin

"He's easily one of the nation's best-kept secrets. Perhaps no more." -- ESPN commentator Andy Katz

"He's a terrific basketball player. What I like about him is he's athletic, more than you think so. He controls his temperament to a really nice tempo. He knows how to play. I really love his composure." -- Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun

"Lin can play anywhere, in any league." -- ESPN commentator Jay Bilas

"For some folks who haven't seen him play, you're probably wowed by some of the things he can do. We are." -- Harvard coach Tommy Amaker

"Jeremy Lin is probably one of the best players in the country you don't know about." -- ESPN's Rece Davis

"He's a joy to watch. He's smooth, smart, unselfish, sees the floor like no one else on it sees." -- Columnist Len Megliola

"He boasts an all-around repertoire rarely on display." -- ESPN columnist Dana O'Neil

"Jeremy Lin reminds me of Santa Clara's Steve Nash circa 1996. Hair cut, deceptive athlete." -- ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla

"He's plenty athletic. Lin explodes at the hoop and can finish above the rim, and he has built his body into a strong physical specimen that can withstand contact." -- ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb

"Boy, he had a nice summer league. He was pretty good most of the time. I wouldn't base it on one game." --Golden State Warriors' GM Larry Riley

"Jeremy's game is not about the parts. It's about the will he exerts." -- Former Paly coach Peter Diepenbrock

"I think he's going to shore up our backcourt — that's for sure. I also think the signing is going to be great for the Bay Area market. I think he is going to be a lightning rod… We have a very large fan contingent that will be excited to have Jeremy on our team." -- Warriors' president Robert Rowell

"I think it's huge. There is excitement.He's going to have a big following no matter what because of the big Asian contingent in the Bay Area. Because he's an Asian American, there's a lot of marketing opportunities." -- JeremyLin.net creator Kenn Kuwahara

"Getting myself a Lin jersey." -- Anonymous post on JeremyLin.net
