    oh shi*! This dude is a lockdown, athletic, combo guard with decent range...AND he's asian?

    In between this and Carmelo getting 7 on his Jersey outside Toyota Center, is it too soon to start a JLin appreciation thread?

    Yeah, she's from Idaho. His dad played professionally in the PBA for a while. I think that's the connection.
