jeremy lin is a hit in taiwan

Last week, the newest Golden State Warrior Jeremy Lin got an unexpected call from none other than Yao Ming, with a last minute request to play at a charity basketball game in Taiwan for his foundation. Lin and his whole family flew out to Taipei for the game: Jeremy Lin, Jennings catch fans' eyes at Yao's charity basketball game.
Lin, a 21-year-old Harvard graduate who recently signed a two-year contract with the Golden State Warriors, drew a standing ovation when he took the court with 6:45 left in the first quarter.

After committing a 24-second shot-clock violation, Lin made a three-pointer late in the quarter, his first points in Taipei.

He also took part in the Slam Dunk and Three-Pointer competitions after being asked by the charity game host, and the cheering and applause from the 6662 fans at Taipei Arena continued as he showed both his vertical leaping skills and long-rang shooting ability.

Lin scored 17 points and gathered in 3 rebounds and also had 3 assists and 4 steals for Team Love, made up of NBA players.
I don't want to get my hopes up too high, but when Jeremy Lin steps on to the court for the first time next season for his first official NBA game, it's going to be a pretty awesome moment. By the way, you can now pre-order your #7 Lin jerseys and tees at the Warriors Team Store here.
