Before attending this game, I’ve been to three NBA games – including Jeremy Lin’s debut into the NBA for the Golden State Warriors, as well as twice when Lin returned as a Houston Rocket to play against his former teammates during the regular 2012 – 2013 NBA season (and even being mistaken as Lin’s dad). Having been born and raised in Western Massachusetts, I’ve always been a fan of the Boston Celtics. I’m of course [...] Continue »

As you may know, Jeremy Lin is the first Asian American NBA basketball player in the modern age. [...] Continue »
Houston Rockets’ Jeremy Lin’s post-game locker room interview after the Rockets defeated the Warriors. Funny moment at 0:58. Jeremy Lin returned to the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday, March 8th when the Houston Rockets returned to the Oracle Arena to play the Golden State Warriors again. I was waiting to see if an interview for Warriors TV was going to be posted, but it hasn’t yet… Having gone only to see the Warriors the [...] Continue »
Why Jeremy Lin is important to America regarding race relations? Here is psychotherapist & diversity trainer Sam Louie‘s response to Charlie Rose’s interview of Jeremy Lin on 60 Minutes this past weekend.
Last September, I had blogged about Jeremy Lin’s escape from his busy Taipei schedule to play street basketball and how that was taped by 60 Minutes. The full 60 Minutes piece profiling Jeremy Lin finally aired this past Sunday night! I guess 60 Minutes decided to wait to see how his season with the Houston Rockets went as well as time the segment as the Rockets are going to secure a spot in the NBA [...] Continue »

This past Thursday, I had the honor and pleasure attending the premiere of LINSANITY, the documentary film, about Jeremy Lin that helped kickoff CAAMFest – the Center for Asian American Media Festival (“Film. Music. Food.”), formerly known as the San Francisco International Film Festival. Afterwards, I attended the Opening Night Gala held at the Asian Art Museum. When I arrived at the historic Castro Theater in San Francisco around 6:15 PM, there was already a [...] Continue »
As mentioned earlier, on Valentine’s Day Houston Rockets basketball star Jeremy Lin launched his foundation, the Jeremy Lin Foundation, according to a report: “The Houston Rockets point guard hosted a gala Thursday night, the eve of All-Star Weekend, to unveil a foundation that will benefit three Houston organizations helping underprivileged children. Current NBA players Chandler Parsons, David Lee, Tyson Chandler, Stephen Curry, Steve Novak and Joakim Noah and retired Rockets center Yao Ming were among [...] Continue »
Houston Rockets’ Jeremy Lin last Tuesday returned to the Oracle Arena as part of Asian Heritage Night, but this time as a Houston Rocket instead of as a Golden State Warrior. And like his debut into the NBA regular season play in November 2010 as part of Asian Heritage Night, Lin had a post-game Q&A for his fans, which last about 10 minutes. Of course, this time around, Lin is a LOT more well known, [...] Continue »
If you’ve ever watched ESPN, you know that they often produce and air their own tongue-in-cheek commercials regarding their daily evening news sport wrap-up program SportsCenter. Oftentimes, EPSN will have an athlete star or make a cameo in one of their commercials. With Jeremy Lin, ESPN smartly plays off of Lin’s academic credentials.
Jeremy Lin will be representing the Houston Rockets at the 2013 Taco Bell Skills Challenge, on Saturday February 16 during NBA All-Star Weekend. The Taco Bell Skills Challenge is a timed course where contestants have to dribble, pass, and shoot to get past different obstacles.

Number One Son is not a Jeremy Lin fan (“over-rated” he calls Lin), so I was surprised when he told me that I should watch Jeremy Lin’s new video, “The Last Pick.” This video was created by the Jubilee Project, a group of three guys who like to make videos for a good causes. This video is intended to be a benefit for Jeremy Lin Foundation, which is scheduled to have a launch party on [...] Continue »
