NBA Summer League: Jeremy Lin’s Climb To the Top

July 20th, 2010 by Zach McDonie Leave a reply »

In a summer league predominatly hyped up for stars like John Wall, Derrick Favors and Evan Turner, it is amazing that the story that stole the headlines involves a relatively unknown talent from the Ivy League.

Now, the Ivy League isn’t known for producing college stars, let alone NBA talent, but former Harvard guard Jeremy Lin seems to be paving the way for Ivy Leaguers of the future.

Lin averaged 16.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.1 blocks during his final year at Harvard. This combo guard was one of the best stat sheet fillers in the entire northeast. Lin earned first-team All Conference during his senior year, and hoped to carry that momentum into the NBA draft.

However, Lin produced these numbers in a very weak Ivy League, and Harvard posted a consistently soft out of conference schedule during his four years. For this reason, Lin found himself jobless at the conclusion of the NBA draft.
