- Before Jeremy Lin started playing for the New York Knicks, the Knicks season looked over.

- According to 82games.com, LeBron James is clearly the best player in the NBA with a 19.3 Simple Rating. Nearly 10 points higher than Jeremy Lin. The second rated highest player is Chris Paul with a 14.5 rating.
- Of course, when voting for the NBA MVP, you cannot simply go by the 82games.com Simple Rating. As of right now, Jeremy Lin’s 9.6 Simple Rating is higher than Derrick Rose’s 9.1 Simple Rating. No one thinks that Jeremy Lin is a better player or more valuable player than Derrick Rose.
- Still, while it is a stretch to say that Jeremy Lin should seriously be considered for the NBA MVP, if the voting were today, I would not be surprised if Jeremy Lin would end up in the top 10 in NBA MVP voting.
