08-09 賽季我們面對 BC 隊時, 沒有人認為我們有機會贏, 我在大一那年跟 BC 打過一次, 我們被狂電 30分.

不過我們當時還是顯示出團隊自信, 而林書豪顯然覺得不只如此. 林書豪整場比賽壓制對手, 那感覺就像他能夠抄到對手的每次傳球, 投中每一顆球. BC 隊根本拿他沒輒.我們全隊打得還不錯, 但林書豪才是我們獲勝的關鍵. 我們在回程的路上不斷喊著他的名字, 那時候我們從來也沒有想過, 多年以後, 這場景會在滿場的麥迪遜花園廣場重演那時, 他已是我們全隊最好的球員, 但那場比賽他第一次展現出他有能力成為 ACC 聯盟中最好的球員. 這對 Ivy League 的球員來說是很神奇的.

總體來說, 他是最好的隊友. 謙虛, 刻苦訓練, 努力比賽. 看著他現在在 NBA 中的表現,我其實不能說是很意外. 他有種創造奇蹟的神秘能力. 他在高中時就創造過神蹟, 打敗當時熱門球隊 Mater Dei 拿下冠軍, 他在大學時也創造過神蹟, 每次面對 BCS 學校時都表現出色. 然後, 他現在籃球最高殿堂上再次展現神蹟. 他在艱難的關鍵時刻總是能將表現提升到另一個境界, 讓人非常印象深刻.

爆一個八卦, 在對籃網比賽的第四節, 主播不斷說林書豪看起來快累垮了. 但他其實有所不知, 林書豪看起來一直都是那樣的! 他可以在熱身 5 分鐘後看起來就像要累死的樣子. 沒人知道為什麼, 但說真的沒人在乎這點, 因為他接著還能持續訓練 40分鐘.

我跟林書豪在六年級一同上 The King's Academy, 那大約是 50個小孩一班因為人數很少, 所以我跟他還蠻熟的

林書豪在學業和籃球上的天賦出眾, 雖然籃球看來一直是排在後頭

籃球上, 他毫無疑問是我們隊上最好的球員, 通常在一場比賽中, 我們可能會以 29-26獲勝, 而林書豪會得到其中的 22分. 他的身手真的非常的快. 那時候的他身高一般,比我們大部份的人還瘦. 雖然他在我們中表現突出, 但我不覺得任何人能預計他能在更高等級的比賽中表現出色. 一般來說, 瘦小的運動員在競爭更激烈的比賽中就會慢慢表現不好了. 再加上他父母都不高, 所以看起來他也不會再長高多少.

賽季末的時候, 在一場對戰我們的宿敵的比賽中, 熱身的時候我們怎麼樣都找不到林書豪, 通常他是不會遲到的, 所以當比賽開始時我們整個措手不及. 他是我們隊上的得分王, 沒有他我們肯定會輸的. 半場時, 我們以 16-10 落後. 在半場集合的時候林書豪這才羞怯的姍姍來遲. 我記得當時有人問他怎麼遲到那麼久, 他靦腆的說道:"我去了小提琴練習" . 教練後來馬上把他放上場, 而我們最終以 2分差逆轉勝

學業上, 他的成績總是全 A. 他還跟我弟一起代表班上參加拼寫比賽喔!

之後啊, 我去看了 CCS 冠軍賽, 他當時是 Palo Alto 高中的學長, 賽後我找他聊天,我被他的身高震驚了. 我這時候才知道他是真材實料啊! 我從來沒有遇到比他更謙虛和努力的人了. 我由衷的為他現在的成功感到高興. 他值得這一切!

Jeremy Lin: What's it like to play on the same basketball team as Jeremy Lin?

Drew Housman, Guard, Harvard Basketball, Class of 2009
Up until about halfway through the 08-09 season it was like having any other teammate. Then we played BC a few days after they had upset North Carolina, the number one team in the country at the time. No one thought we had a chance. The only other time I played BC was my freshman year, and we got blasted by 30.

We showed up at BC feeling confident as a team, but I think Jeremy was feeling a little something extra. He torched them from start to finish. It felt like he stole every pass and hit every jumper. They simply had no answer for him. The team played well as a whole, but Jeremy was clearly the reason we won the game. We were chanting his name on the shuttle ride home, never imagining that a sold out Madison Square Garden would be doing the same thing a few years later.

He had been the best player on our team for a while, but that game was the first time he showed that he could have been the best player on an ACC team. That is kind of amazing for an Ivy League guy.

Overall he is the best teammate you could ask for. Humble, works hard and plays hard. I can't say I'm that surprised to see what he is doing in the league. His ability to rise to the occasion is uncanny. He did it in high school, winning the state championship over the favored Mater Dei by making big plays in the 4th, he did it in college whenever he played a BCS school (except for Stanford his sophomore year, but that was a disaster across the board) and he is now doing it at the highest level possible. He might have a rough night against Columbia, but against UConn on national TV? 30 points in a near upset. It is really impressive when someone raises his level of play every time the pressure mounts.

Also, during the 4th quarter of the Nets game the announcer kept saying that Jeremy looked exhausted. What he doesn't know is that Jeremy always looks like that. He would appear to be dead tired after 5 minutes of warm ups. No one really knew why, but no one really cared because he would always come out and put in work for 40 minutes.

Update: This answer got so much love I thought I'd throw a few more details up:

  • I have a distinct memory of the first real action he saw as a freshman. He found our big guy for a layup by throwing a no-look pass that I would never have attempted. His first year was rocky but he showed flashes of potential.
  • He became exceptional at elevating for his jump shot, noticing that the opposing bigs had turned their backs, and firing a pass to our big guy for a layup. It got to the point where opposing forwards would be more worried about that pass than getting into rebounding position.
  • He is not "deceptively" quick like people keep saying. He is just super quick, straight up. And athleticism is not just about your bench press and your vertical. He has more than enough lateral quickness, coordination, body control and instincts to make up for what he might lack in the more traditional athletic categories.
  • I was always more of a Madden guy, but from limited experience and word of mouth I gathered he was excellent at Halo.

I played on the 6th grade basketball team with Jeremy

We both attended The King's Academy in 6th grade, which was roughly 50 kids in the class. Given the small size, I got to know him fairly well even though he only stayed at TKA for a year before transferring to a Jr. High closer to home.

He was exceptionally gifted both academically and in basketball, although it always seemed like basketball took the back seat.

In basketball, he was by far our best player. In a typical game we would win 29 - 26, with Jeremy scoring 22 of our points. He was indeed exceptionally quick, but it seemed fleeting. He was average height at the time, but thinner than the rest of us. Even though he was a standout player I don't think anyone expected him to do well at the higher levels. It's common to see smaller, shifty athletes not play as well at the more competitive levels when contact picks up and size becomes a factor. Adding to that, his parents were short so it didn't seem like he would add much height. When I played football against Javhid Best in High School, there was a much different feeling. Everyone knew he would go pro, to the extent that a few of my teammates asked for his autograph after the game. Jeremy was a much different story and I'd say most of us assumed he would start to blend in as he advanced.

Near the end of the season against our rivals, Valley Christian Dublin, we were warming up and Jeremy was no where to be found. He was always on time, and when the game started we weren't really sure what to do. He was our biggest scorer and not having him there surely meant a loss. As the first half continued, we kept looking around wondering why he wasn't there, and started to worry. At the half, sans Jeremy, we were down 16 - 10. As we wrapped up our halftime huddle, Jeremy sheepishly walked in and our whole team (plus our fans) erupted. After we all gave him a high five, I remember someone asked him why he was so late and he softly muttered "violin practice". The coach threw him in the game and we went on to win by two points!

Academically, he got straight A's and I remember he was in the Spelling Bee with my brother. They had were both chosen to represent the class after our grade held a spelling competition.

Later on, I went to the CCS Championship when he was a Senior at Palo Alto High School. After the win, I went up and talked to him after the game, and I was shocked how much taller he was than me. I finally realized he was the real deal. I don't think I've met anyone as humble or as hard working as Jeremy and I'm really glad he's having such success. If anyone deserves this, it's him.
