On Friday evening, Jeremy went to TVBS to tape an interview together with his father and mother.

In the interview, he said he missed playing in New York, cos the fans there are so passionate.

When asked to compare Houston vs New York, he said Houston and its fans are more quiet, and fit his character better.

When asked about whether he needs to make adjustment in how he plays now that Dwight Howard had joined Houston Rockets, Jeremy said he did not think it will be a big issue to gel and play with Dwight Howard, as Dwight is good in pick and rolls, and Houston Rockets play alot of pick and rolls.

When asked about his view on NBA trades and the possibility of him being traded, he said he did not care much about the issue cos it is something not in his control; he will just keep his faith in God, keep improving his game and play the way that God would like him to play in whatever team he might be, and leaves everything to God.

Yesterday (August 17), Jeremy played quite a bit of basketball.

First he went to the stadium of National Taiwan University to have a sort of basketball clinic with a bunch of school boys from Jin Hua secondary school.

Then he went at the evening together with his brother Joseph to play some street basketball at the same place he went to last summer with David Lee.

He thrilled the crowd with his fast breaks, much improved 3-pointers, and even dunks.


Here are photos and video of his play.

And right after some street basketball, Jeremy proceeded to the major activity of the day ~ Nike Summer Nights, a Nike initiative that encourages Taiwanese youths to play sports every night during the summer months.

Jeremy sneaked onto the court disguised as one of the many mascots. He surprised all his fans when he took down his mascot head mask after the master of ceremony had repeatedly called his name to introduce him to the crowd. He then did a Harlem shake together with cheerleaders and players on the court to the cheering fans.

Then there was a 5 vs 5 game versus a Nike Selected Team.

Jeremy's team was falling behind by almost double-digits. It required 3 consecutive 3-pointers from Jeremy to tie the game and forced it into over time.

And in the over time, Jeremy made 4 out of 5 of his 3-pointers to lead his team to final victory.


Here are photos and videos of the Nike Summer Nights that Jeremy attended last night.

A total of 60 college and secondary school lads participated the 3-day camp.

And right after a Q&A session with the 2 players, at the beginning of the training camp, Jeremy introduced to the fans his new invention: The Kung Fu Style Cheering/Handshake that is going to replace the nerdy handshake between him and Landry Fields while he was still at the New York Knicks.

He said after he joined the Houston Rockets, Chandler Parsons suggested they should do a new style of cheering/handshake before the game.


So Jeremy invented the new Kung Fu style. and after James Harden saw it, he said he also wanted to join.

Right after the training camp, Jeremy proceeded to his religious testimonial sharing gatherings "Dream Big and Be Yourself" at Taipei World Trade Centre.

The main hall of Taipei World Trade Centre was filled with over 20,000 audience.

His fans complained afterwards that his testimonial sharing was too short and they did not see and hear enough of him, and that the testimonial sharing had been marred by performances of mandopop singers: Vanness Wu Jianhao 吳建豪 (former member of F4), and Elva Hsiao Ya-Hsuan 蕭亞軒, which turned it almost into a music concert instead of a testimonial sharing session.

Meanwhile while Jeremy went to his religious gathering, Chandler Parsons showed up in the same outdoor stadium that Jeremy went to the other night and played some street basketball with amateur players.

And in the sudden death shootout competition, Chandler Parsons lost to a university student from National Taiwan University, and the lucky guy was awarded with 2 complimentary tickets for the 2013 NBA Taiwan Game between Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers in October.
