Jeremy Lin’s Dad’s Basketball Rules

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Yesterday Houston G Jeremy Lin posted a video to his YouTube channel featuring a behind-the-scenes look at a training session with his father, identified on the video as Papa Lin. How did Jeremy Lin become an NBA star? Through hard work, and perhaps by doing drills while carrying an egg on a spoon in his mouth, or while being pelted with water balloons. (Although we should probably take this with a grain of salt — in the video’s description, Lin says they shot this video over the summer to support his documentary Linsanity, which is out tomorrow.)

    This is non-sense.

      Nothing will help even he balance a book on his head while doing crossover. If he wants to get a ring he needs to play with the king “LeBron” We will trade norris cole plus future 1st round pick.

      PG: Lin
      SG: Wade
      SF: James
      PF: Bosh
      C: Oden

      6th man: Battier

        Heat fans seroiusly need to shut up.any article whether its dwight howard to derrick rose to brian scalabrine, they’re always there to make their “u wont get a ring without god Lebron.Come to the heat and we’ll take you whether u have a 20 million dollar contract or a vets minimun cuz salary cap doesnt exist in miami”.its ok for u to want him for a reason i dont understand cuz chalmers is better than lin anyway but when u propose ridiculous trades it kinda makes heat fans look dumb.i remember back with the Dwight drama a gy said that the heat will get howard by trading joel anthony and cole.i mean like wtf.

  3. It’s always nice to see popular people still be so down to earth.
    Down to earth like the Hobbit

    Made me laugh. Got to meet Jeremy once through a good friend of mine right in the midst of linsanity. Cool dude, good ball player, might be great again. Who knows? Def has talent. Good luck Jeremy!

  5. TRE TRE TRE says:

  6. yiying says:

    It’s really funny! Great play! Not a single word from Jeremy.

  7. sports fan says:

    Great video & Jeremy Lin is having fun doing these goofy videos. The Linsanity documentary is gooing to be good.

  8. jake s. says:

    yeah, i like lin but there is no real potential there. only bursts of confidence.

  9. Chong Xie says:

    hahah, this is funny, but the truth lies in science, no foot strength = no glutes = no performance.

  10. tay says:

    too many trolls. y u mad at someone else’s success? must be cause u’re a fail.

  11. busa-boss says:

    karate kid…daniel-san and mr. miyagi are working out again

  12. Jeremy Lin is a solid point guard, with a bright future in Houston. Now that Howard is patrolling and rocking in the paint, Lin will have more freedom to create his own shot or opportunities for others.

    The training seems a bit silly, but none the less, shows the level of concentration Lin has brought into his professional career. No doubt, he would of never succeeded in NY if he had not the patience and calm “Papa Lin” bestowed upon him.
