The Weirdest Moments From Jeremy Lin’s Taiwanese Streetball Odyssey

Jeremy Lin went to Taiwan and conquered everybody.

Houston Rockets point guard and mega-icon Jeremy Lin was in Taiwan last week with David Lee of the Golden State Warriors, and they eventually had to scratch the basketball itch. So Lin made a video about his late-night escape to a local Taipei streetball court.

Some parts of the video were staged, some were organic. All were ridiculous.
