Jeremy Lin just persisted in squeezing out time for his basketball training !!!


Yesterday after the opening ceremony of his basketball training camp, he and David Lee went to the basketball stadium of Taiwan Beer for practice and strength and conditioning exercise. He stayed there for more than 2 hours.

Early this morning before going back to his training camp, he and David Lee went out again to Nanshan Secondary School for their shooting practice.

And right after that, they left Nanshan Secondary School to find a gym to continue their strength and conditioning exercise.

David Lee has brought his girl friend along on this visit to Taiwan.

Image

He told reporters that one of the tourist spots in Taipei he would like to visit is Shihlin night market, where he could experience/taste some of the Taiwanese snacks there. He hoped Jeremy could find time to accompany him (and his girl friend) there.

He knew with the Linsanity phenomenum in Taiwan, this could be very difficult if not impossible, as Jeremy would be mobbed by the maddening crowd/fans.


So he and his girl friend had thought about a secret weapon.

They had bought Jeremy his birthday present back in the States: a wig that Jeremy could put on and camouflage that his fans won't recognize him when they go out together. :P :lol: :D

Well, if what the Chinese media/press had been reporting correctly, Jeremy had brought along 2 coaches (shooting and strength & conditioning) with him on this Greater China tour. His brother Joseph is also accompanying him throughout the tour.



YEAH..... the Taiwan media/press also confirmed that 2 of his personal coaches on shooting (Doc Scheppler) and Strength & Conditioning (Josh Fan) are accompanying him all these while on the Greater China tour.

And on top of his younger brother Joseph, his older brother Joshua had also joined Jeremy in Taiwan.

Also featuring in the coaching lineup for the Taipei camp was Lin's shooting coach Doc Scheppler, strength coach Josh Fan and older brother Joshua.

To add stardom to the educational camp, the Houston Rockets point guard invited his friend and former Golden State Warriors teammate David Lee to share his insights with Taiwanese youths.

For his family, maybe.

But don't think
they're paying for his 2 coaches and David Lee. David Lee had the plan to come out to Asia to visit Taiwan with his girl friend; he talked with Jeremy, and Jeremy invited him to join him at his training camp.

And don't think that can be called a vacation trip for pleasure for Jeremy. :roll: He had the contractual obligation to come out for his endorsers for commercial promotion, and it is MOSTLY WORK, WORK, WORK and no sightseeing in most of the cities he visited.

YEAH....the guy is rich and has a gorgeous girl friend, in fact fiance.

His fiance is Sabina Gadecki,
a model and former 2002 Miss Polonia World and Miss Western Massachusetts, and currently host for Travel Channel's World Poker Tour.

And due to Linsanity, she and David Lee are also becoming overnight celebrities with the media/press and fans in Taiwan with alot of media/press interviews.

In an interview, she told reporters that she and David Lee are going to marry soon; she also said Jeremy is a good friend of David Lee, and because of that, alot of her friends are asking her to set up dating for them with Jeremy !!
LOL !!!

And Jeremy and David Lee (and his fiance Sabina) were having fun !!!

On the night of 27th, Jeremy's family hosted a dinner for David Lee and Sabina Gadecki in a Western restuarant in the famous Taipei 101.

Image

And yesterday was the final day of Jeremy's basketball camp for Cathay Financial Group. At the end of the camp, Jeremy formed a team comprised of himself, David Lee, his 2 brothers and Josh Fan (the strength and conditioning coach) and played against the All Star team of the camp. Jeremy had fun in shot-blocking alot of the shots from the youngsters, and displayed all sorts of shots including fast-break dunks.

And David Lee and his fiance's wish came true !!!

Last night, right after 21:00 pm, together with his family, Jeremy took David and Sabina to the famous Shihlin Night Market.

Instead of risking being recognized and mobbed by the crowd on the street, Jeremy took David and Sabina for prawn fishing !!

Jeremy picked up prawn fishing as a hobby when he first visited Taiwan last year when he was still not famous. But the owner of the prawn fishing place took photos together with him, and had hung those photos in their reception area as attraction to customers.

Image

Image

It seemed Jeremy was a quick learner; he picked up prawn fishing easily in his last trip, and he has now become pretty skillful. He was successful to harvest 11 prawns compared to 4 for Sabina and none for David Lee.

Jeremy's family and friends got close to 50 prawns, and they took their prawns, grilled and ate them there at the prawn fishing place, and did not leave the place until midnight.
