Taiwan is a province of china.

one of US President Jimmy Carter's achievements, few and far in between, was to officially recognize PRC as a nation.

the corruption of the ruling KMT led to civil war; the Communists won.

but, with US interference, Taiwan was stolen from China

IMHO Jeremy is RELATIVELY MORE POPULAR in Taiwan than in China. He is viewed as their favorite son, and even President Ma Yingjeou arranged to greet and congratulate him back in 2010 when Jeremy got signed by Golden State Warriors.

As for Jeremy himself, I guess he feels MORE COMFORTABLE and AT EASE in Taiwan than in China, AT LEAST he could openly talk about his love of God/Christianity on TV and to media/press WITHOUT FEAR of being censored.

Jeremy showed up on Thursday (August 22) in a fans' gathering organized by his new sponsor Gatorade in Shanghai.

It was mostly a Q&A session with the Master of Ceremony and fans.

Jeremy talked detailedly about the training regiment and contents of his past few months: polishing on his defense, his ball handling skills with left hand, his 3-point shooting;
he said he aimed to raise his 3-pointer% from 34% to >> 40% in the new season.

He then demonstrated his dribbling and ball handling skills to a group of young basketballers.

As August 23 is his 25th birthday, the organizers rolled out a big birthday cake, and the fans sang Happy Birthday for Jeremy as a pre-celebration.


Here are some photos of Jeremy at the Gatorade event.

Yesterday (August 23rd) was Jeremy's 25th birthday.

There were NO ACTIVITIES
scheduled for Jeremy probably to leave him free time to spend with his family for his birthday.

Nevertheless, Jeremy did not abandon his daily training and exercise at the gym in the morning with his 2 brothers, Joshua and Joseph.

And he left Shanghai for Beijing in the afternoon, arriving in the evening.

He was given a pleasant surprise by some hardcore fans waiting in the arrival hall with banner showing "Jeremy, We Love You More Than Chandler Parsons does", as well as flashing lights of Happy Birthday.

He took a quick exit from the airport for his hotel under heavy security.


Here are some photos of Jeremy on arrival into Beijing.

Jeremy showed that his hard work for the past few months on 3-pointers is BEARING FRUIT in REAL GAME SITUATION today in Beijing.

He was presiding in KFC's National 3 vs 3 Basketball Tournament.


It started with an opening ceremony, followed up with a Q&A session with Yu Jia, CCTV basketball commentator/analyst, who acted as Master of Ceremony for the occasion.

Then in a shootout competition, Jeremy domonstrated his 3-pointer shooting; it was a competition between Jeremy and the 3-pointer shootout champion of last year's KFC National Basketball Tournament. The more 3-pointers a player made in 10 consecutive shots, the more KFC newest set of Jeremy boobleheads will be gifted to the fans.

Probably due to nervousness, the national 3-pointer champion bricked and made only 2 of his 3-pointers; despite missing his first 2 shots, Jeremy found his rhythm, and made the remaining 8 to come up
8/10 3-pointer% and won the competition.

Following the shootout competition, it was an exhibition game between last year's national 3 X 3 champion team versus the runner up team. Jeremy was to play for both team as their super back-up alternatively.

Jeremy came in as a substitute for the runners' team with 6 minutes left in the first half; he did not focus on offense, but just concentrate on organizing offense, dishing out assist, and played tough defense, delivering 2 to 3 block shots.

Towards the end of first half, the fans were all given a
FRIGHT/SCARE, when during his layup, Jeremy was pulled down from mid air by the opponent; he fell hard onto the ground, but soon woke up uninjured to the relief of all the fans.

Then in the second half he switched team and played against the runner-up team featuring last year's national 3-pointer champion.

Different from first half, Jeremy switched to offensive mode. He first penetrated and made a reverse layup; then when last year's national 3-pointer champion found his rhythm to score 3 consecutive 3-pointers, Jeremy reciprocated with 3-pointers of his own. He eventually made
5 out of 6 of his 3-pointers and led last year's champion team to come from behind to beat the runner-up team by 2 points.

So if the 8 out of 10 is added onto the stat, Jeremy made 13 out of 16 of his 3-pointers in today's exhibition.
