Jeremy Lin: A rare vote for an underdog Bay Area Asian-American (Cousy Award)

Jeremy Lin (previous posts: 1 2) needs your support once again!  He is up for the Cousy Award and there's a component of the award that is based on online fan voting.

Please vote for him here, THEN DON'T FORGET TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE FOR HIM TOO, as voting ends in two days!...

He is currently in third place.  Please note, the winner of this online popular vote does NOT necessarily win the Cousy Award, but garners a small vote in the Committee selection process.  However, I think quite simply this is an opportunity for Asian-Americans, underdogs (remember, Jeremy goes to Harvard, not exactly a big-name basketball school), and the Bay Area to be heard.

I actually believe John Wall is a better player than Jeremy (no surprise there) and should probably win the Cousy Award.  However, I don't think Wall needs my vote, as the Committee should be smart enough to pick him, nor do I really feel like voting for anyone except Jeremy.

Another way to look at it is this.  I've been around basketball for over a quarter century now and, while Asian-Americans are making progress in the sport, there are still zero Asian-Americans in the NBA.  I'm not sure that another Asian-American or Ivy League -- i.e., school more well-known for academics -- point guard this good will come along and present an opportunity for us to vote again, at least not for another half-generation or generation.  So take this potential once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support a rare breed!

NOTE: THERE ARE ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT TO VOTE!  You can vote once per 24 hours.
