Ed Weiland explains how he saw Lin coming
The one man who saw the Jeremy Lin phenomenon was Ed Weiland, a FedEx driver who also writes hoopsanalyst.com.
Weiland broke down the numbers, and had Lin rated very highly at Harvard. He even had Lin in the same category as Allen Iverson.
Weiland said that the guy he sees being better than we think in the NBA right now is Marquette’s Jae Crowder and North Texas’ Tony Mitchell.
Weiland said that of the marquee guys, he likes Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger to be better than he thought they would be after watching this year. He’s not big on Harrison Barnes and Perry Jones.
