Right after the opening ceremony of the 2013 KFC National 3 vs 3 Basketball Tournament in the morning, Jeremy Lin squeezed out some time and travelled to Tianjin City to visit an orphanage for physically and mentally challenged children: The Prince of Peace Children's Home and Children Rehabilitation Centre in the afternoon.

He casually chatted in Mandarin and played games with the children just like a big brother.


Here are some photos of Jeremy's visit to the orphanage in Tianjin.

Jeremy Lin officially launched his 2013 JLIN Summer Basketball Camp in MasterCard Centre aka Wukesong Arena in Beijing today (August 25).

Like last year, this camp will last for 3 days, and 60 young basketballers screened and recruited around the nation attended the camp free of charge.

Other than Jeremy, former Houston Rockets and Jeremy's team mate in New York Knicks, 3-pointer specialist Steve Novak of Toronto Raptors flew into Beijing yesterday to be one of the coaches for the camp.


Here are photos of Jeremy and Steve Novak in today's opening ceremony of the camp, sponsored by Jeremy Lin's new endorser SafeGuard of Procter & Gamble.

LOL, white players never get credit for defensive effort anyway. So, why bother.

LOL !!! This could be China's major step in naturalizing Jeremy Lin to become a national team player.

On August 26 evening, Director Qiu Yuanping of China's Overseas Chinese Affairs Office under the State Council met with Jeremy Lin and his parents at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.

During their meeting, Qiu Yuanping extended welcome on behalf of the Chinese people to Jeremy and his family visit, congratulated Jeremy on his current achievements achieved through his personal efforts. She also told Jeremy's parents that they had raised a good son !!!

Qiu said Jeremy is now not only a world famous basketball star, but also a top student graduated from the prestigious Harvard University, and is popular all over the world especially with the Chinese fans. She also praised Jeremy for his works in public charity; she said with his positive, healthy and sunny image, Jeremy has become a role model and pride for the younger generation in China.

The 2013 JLIN Summer Basketball Training Camp came to a successful closure on August 27.

Jeremy and Steve Novak joined with 3 other local coaches of the camp and played against an All Stars team chosen from the elite participants of the camp. Jeremy and Steve Novak still showed their rapport and chemistry built during their tenure with New York Knicks. Alot of 3-pointers from both of them reciprocating each other with assists. Jeremy even attempted alley-oops with passes from Steve Novak, and had a few dunks that brought the roof down from the MasterCard Centre.

In the evening of August 27, Jeremy, his parents and Steve Novak were invited to one of China's most popular talk shows, A Date with Lu Yu 鲁豫有约.

And it must be a RARE FIRST TIME in the history of Chinese TV as in the Q&A with the host Chen Luyu, Jeremy and his mother mentioned SEVERAL TIMES about their creed in God.

Jeremy repeatedly said that God has been helping him, as he did not expect that he could make it to NBA, and that his rise to overnight stardom (Linsanity) was really a miracle as far as he was concerned.

Jeremy's mother also said that prior to the Linsanity, she said a prayer to God, that if God wishes Jeremy to stay in NBA, she asked God to give her some signs; if not, then she asked God to give signs for Jeremy to quit.

During the show, Jeremy demonstrated his piano skill by playing a short session of Apologize (by OneRepublic). Jeremy said he had started learning piano since he was a kid, and had participated in alot of competitions and had also public performances. He seemed rusty and got stuck in a few places. He apologized for his lack of practice, but Chen Luyu told him not to mind as most of the audience did not know how to play piano.

Then Jeremy and Steve Novak had a one-on-one duel on a shooting machine. Steve Novak won the duel.

Steve Novak told Chen Luyu and the audience that he had been pretty close with Jeremy, cos when they were at New York Knicks, they were both just bench/fringe players at the trough of their careers. They often extended help and encouragement to each other.
