Last week Jeremy Lin participated in the Steve Nash Foundation Charity Game (soccer), played July 14th in Los Angeles.
Jeremy was among a group of NBA players (like Jared Dudley, Klay Thompson), soccer stars (Robbie Rogers, Robbie Keane), and NBA writers (Marc Stein) invited to play soccer to raise money for Nash’s foundation.
But according to Orange County Register reporter Kevin Ding, the Rockets didn’t approve of Lin playing in the soccer match because of the risk involved, so he played for only a few minutes (for both teams).
However, Lin showed that he had some soccer skills by getting an assist to Klay Thompson for an opening goal. Nash’s team ended up beating Rogers’ team 5-4 with Nash scoring the winning goal.
