This Chris Tang looks like he is faster than Lin. With the new scientific training that Lin received, Tang will be even more athletic.

He's got some pretty impressive handles, agility, and a really nice pullup jumper.

From the video, I cannot see if he has the kind of court vision that Lin has. To be a good PG in the NBA, he needs that more than his scoring abilities. He will have 2 more years of high school games and then college. Hopefully he can go to a good school that can help his skills and give him national exposure.

Anyways, the happening of Linsanity helps his stock.

did we watch the same videos?!

this kid's nothing like jeremy lin, he's lazy on d, looks super slow on tape, pretty much no off ball movement, makes poor decisions, got picked off twice with pretty much no pressure. I can see him scoring a lot because of his shooting and he looks taller than the other kids at his position.

I was going to share that Chris Tang video to everybody when Lin takes a rest during all-star, but looks like you guys already found it.

I've seen highlight clips of Lin from highschool (since I live a city from Palo Alto) and now i've seen the highlight video of Chris Tang. Not yet saying Tang is a future NBA all-star like Lin, but Tang definitely has some athletic dunks in his highlight reel. more so than Lin.

also, Lin never scored that many points as a sophmore in highschool.

The arrived from China part is interesting, I wonder if he's actually a Chinese National or they meant he just came back from visiting China. If he's a Chinese National, this could possibly mean that China has found its future PG to play with Guo Ailun :lol: and Zhou Qi.

Well I FINALLY found out WHO this Chris Tang is. :shock:

He may not be the next Jeremy Lin, but at least in their Chinese name, they share the same character ....Hao 豪. :P

Chris Tang is Tang Zihao 唐子豪 from Lianyungang of Jiangsu. :shock: ... /1113.html

A Brief Profile of Chris Tang Zihao 唐子豪

  • Born of athletic family: his father Tang Wenzhong used to be a basketball player at 1.90M; his mother is at 1.67M.
  • He studied at Lianyungang Foreign Language School, and trained at the sports academy of Lianyungang together with another player Heng Yifeng 衡艺丰, also from Lianyungang, who is on the China U16 national team (together with Zhou Qi) that won the 2011 FIBA U16 Asian Championship held in Nha Trang City of Vietnam, from October 18 to 28, 2011.
  • In 2007, Chris Tang and Heng Yifeng represented Jiangsu to take part in the national Amway Nutrilite Junior NBA competition. He and Heng were amongst the 10 Finalists picked from over hundreds of boys all over the country.
  • As his award for winning the Amway Nutrilite Junior NBA competition, he and Heng and the other 8 winners were sent to USA as Amway's guests for the 2008 NBA All Stars in New Orleans.
  • It was reported during his stay at the 2008 NBA All Stars, the China team beat their USA counterpart (i.e. the USA Amway Nutrilite juniors) in a competition, and Chris Tang was the MVP of that friendly.
  • Right afterwards, Chris Tang stayed behind and trained at the US Basketball Academy, and managed to enroll into a high school probably with the help of US Basketball Academy (which is founded and run by Bruce O'Neil, an old friend of Chinese basketball).
  • Then in May of 2009, Chris Tang returned to China, took part in the 2009 Adidas Nations aka Superstar Asian Camp in Beijing (Devin Harris and Brook Lopez were instructors there in the camp). Right after that, he declined to join the junior team of Jiangsu Nangang Dragons cos he felt the Jiangsu team was studded with a lot of point guard players both in the junior and senior team, and he would find it difficult to be promoted to senior team in due course; he returned to USA to continue his high school study there.

Good job Pryuen!

Kid looks pretty good at 15. He's got some good size on him. Make the black kids look tiny.

Well it seems with Linsanity, Chris Tang also got onto the scouts radar!!! :shock: :P :lol: :D 8)

A Yahoo report on Chris Tang on 4 days ago.

It was unfortunate that I could not watch the video attached in the Yahoo article, and could not comment on Chris Tang's game, but just from the reporter's desription, Chris Tang seems to be more athletic than Jeremy Lin, and also he had already caught the attention of the scouts of some of those NCAA schools: Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Davidson, as well as Harvard.

Virginia sophomore point guard
from China may be the next Jeremy Lin

[size=109]By Cameron Smith
Tue, Feb 21, 2012

There may be a simmering diplomatic battle between China and Taiwan in trying to claim the allegiance and origin of budding Knicks star Jeremy Lin, but there's no debate about where the next Asian guard to crack the basketball scene hails from: He is Chinese, and he is a spectacular, under-the-radar prospect tearing up the mid-Atlantic prep hoops scene. And, just like Lin, this budding star is getting interest from Harvard among other top college hoops programs.

[b]Chris Tang is only a sophomore at Newport News (Va.) Hampton Roads Academy, but he is already one of the traditionally powerful prep program's most promising prospects. At 6-foot-2, Tang can man either guard position, but spends almost all his time for Hampton Roads as the team's point guard. Tang was an all-conference selection as a freshman and has already had performances in which he scored 41 and 42 points
