Jeremy Lin marked the one year anniversary of Linsanity with a promotional video encouraging youth to find inspiration in his own story. In the video described in Focus Taiwan, Lin befriends an 11-year old boy whose own brother won’t allow him to join him in a pick up game of basketball.
“You are young. You can keep growing. Just try to get better every day,” Lin tells the dejected 11-year old.
The boy wants to give up, but Lin won’ t let him. Lin himself hears the message in his ear all the time. He’s overrated, he’ll never be an all star, Linsanity is dead. But Lin perseveres and he convinces the boy to do the same.
