NBA veteran Jeremy Lin announced on Instagram Thursday night that he would join his brother Joseph to play for the Taipei Kings in the P League+ in Taiwan.
“This is a dream come true, a dream @joe_linstagram and I have dreamt about our whole lives. To be able to share the court together as teammates. Thank you to the @newtaipeikings for believing in me 👑,” Jeremy posted.
His brother also posted a photo on his own Instagram account a photo of the two brothers side by side in King uniforms.
Together the two posts had 150,000 likes by Friday morning.
“Here we go,” Joseph proclaimed.
“Lesgoooooo!!” Simu Liu responded on Jeremy’s post.
The actor has joined Lin for a charity basketball tournament in Toronto for the last two years.
Lin last played for the Kaohsiung Steelers also in the Taiwanese P. League+, averaging 26.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.9 assists, according to Bleacher Report.
The Kings were founded in 2021.
Lin is the first Asian American player in the NBA to host a championship trophy. That happened in 2019 with the Toronto Raptors.
His NBA career took off in 2012 when he came off the bench for the New York Knicks to take the league by storm in a period known as Linsanity. During that time, he captivated the nation and made the cover of Sports Illustrated two weeks in a row.
