The Warriors officially signed Jeremy Lin on Wednesday.
The undrafted Harvard point guard generated plenty of buzz during his impressive run in the Vegas Summer League, and has a chance of breaking into the Warriors' rotation this season. Given the unheralded players we've seen emerge in Golden State in recent years, don't rule out the possibility of Lin making a fantasy contribution at some point next season.

Multiple teams wanted this kid, but I think he made a smart decision for himself by signing with the Warriors. He will get some PT there and hopefully he can prove himself. Then he may be able to get a nice contract in the future.

Can you guys believe he had a 4.3/4.3 GPA! He definitely looked better than most of the Summer Rookies and he has shown iq + talent! Best of luck to him.

Warriors have the smartest team in the NBA. Too bad playoff rankings aren't based on I.Q.

I wouldn't say he destroyed John Wall. He was barely on John Wall. Dominique Jones was defending Wall for the most part, because Lin and Beaubois could not stick him.

Lin did have his moments and he is a hell of a player with a high basketball IQ.

Cool with me, I like this guy. He's a born 'n bred in the Bay kid who's got solid D, efficient shooting and can stretch the floor with his 3 game. NBA ready, too. Good pickup with the loss of Morrow.

Plus he's the only Asian born American in the league now. Pretty cool; especially for a team that has a huge Asian fanbase.

WOW! 6'3, 210? Sounds like Donnie Nelson has a new starting Power Forward.
But in all seriousness, I think he'll pretty much follow the Anthony Morrow, Wesley Mathews path and sign some decent contract after being undrafted. He's definitely got the ability to do so. Signing on his home team is great for him.

Doesn't really fit the mold of a Nellie player. Quick but not blazing fast, cerebral not athletic, attacks doesn't shoot 3s that much.... is Nelson actually trying to win games now?

Dude's a genius, he could probably make more money doing something else than playing in the NBA.

He's a very good player. Too bad he had to go to the most dysfunctional and most sloppy organization in the league, in terms of player management and front office work. Maybe the clipps are worse but that's about it.
