Here is a great article by Marc Stein in his Weekend Dime. It gives you some hope that there are at least a few unbiased, intelligent, and knowledgeable sports writers out there.
Weekend Dime -- Jeremy Lin and the undrafted - ESPN
One of JLin's most impressive stat is his 4th quarter PER being 2nd in the league to Chris Paul and ahead of Derrick Rose, Kyrie Irving, Lebron James, and Kevin Durant. This was astutely pointed out by one of our members earlier this week. Also, as we've said here over and over, the Knicks will lock up Jeremy at the mid-level (around 5 million) for next year. Then in 2013, he'll be a unrestricted free-agent, likely commanding max money of close to 20 million per year and free to go wherever he wants.
Speaking of Kyrie Irving, after watching Irving and Ricky Rubio up close at the 2012 Rising Stars All-Star game and following them closely this season, we're sold on both. Rubio is basically a Jason Kidd clone. His defense is what has really surprised us. Kyrie Irving is a cross between Chris Paul and Derrick Rose. He and Jeremy will be dueling it out for years. We believe you're looking at 3 of the top young point guards today all with Hall of Fame level talent.
On a side note, we've felt that Jimmer was drafted way too high. There aren't many 6'1" shooting guards who are lottery picks. He should have been picked late in the first round. He is basically a shooting specialist, who is not big enough or athletic enough to guard anyone in the NBA. If you compare the two, it's a tragedy that Jimmer was picked 10th, while Jeremy went undrafted.
