Jeremy Lin wanted nothing to do with Linsanity, remembers his cousin, Alan Lu. Producers Christopher Chen and Brian Yang along with director Evan Jackson Leong had been hounding the Harvard point guard for years into letting them shoot his story.
“He said, ‘These people have been bugging me for years now, and we don’t know what to do with them,’ ” says Lu, a Mountain View resident. “He was like ‘Hey, do you want to help me?’ he told the Mercury News.
So Lu met with the film making team and left impressed.
“I went back (to Lin) and said, ‘You can’t replace the moments we have now,’ ” Lu says. ‘Why not just flip on the cameras and see what happens?’ Jeremy didn’t care. So he said, ‘We’ll turn on the cameras and see what happens.’ ”
